A L Austin a horseman who was In
Salt Lake for the past rang meet writes
the following interesting letter to the Her
aldRepublican about the new racing
plant at Juarez Mexico He says
The initial meeting of the Juaree
Jockey club is on and as yet ideal racing
conditions are seen Of the big and rep
resentative crowd at the opening meeting
you have already heard so I will confine
myself to a brief description of the plant
The grandstand is of mission style of
architecture built of reinforced con
crate capable of seating about 3500 per
sons Underneath the stand are tbe of
fices the restaurant etc Adjoining this
is the betting ring and next to this the
secretarys office and the Jockeys head
quarters Adjoining this is the paddock
making one continuous building The roof
of the stand Is of tiling and of the re
maining building concreted making a
fireproof building of imposing appearance
and giving it an individuality all its own
The stables run continuously along the
rear of the grounds completing a well or
fence and not In section as is usually
seen at the tracks The stalls are light
roomy and like the stand fireproof The
plant is still incomplete but in the land
of manana even American push and en
terprise is slow to i accomplish results
The track consists of a main track
one and oneeighth miles In circumfer
ence wide and safe although slow at
present with a halfmile chute for ju
venile races a mile chute with one turn
also a one and onesixteenth mile chute
With care and time this will develop into
the finest track In the country
From the above general description it
will be seen that the phrase used above
is not amiss
The officials are all gentlemen of In
tegrity and known ability and everything
savors of a successful meeting Everyone
one seems to have been Inoculated with
the boost microbe for no knockers have
as yet appeared For the future of the
game here there is nothing but the
brightest outlook
Los Angeles Dec Publicity was
given today to plans for a motordrome
to be built here by local and eastern
capitalists which it is asserted will
eclipse the speed pesslblllties of an
other automobile race course in the
world including the Indianapolis and
Atlanta tracks It will be a saucer
track one mile in circumference built
of heavy timber planked with finished
lumber and pitched at an angle that
will permit a speed of two miles a min
ute Work will begin within two weeks
and it is expected that the track will be
ready for racing within three months
The first racing carnival probably will
be held during the first week of ApriL
De Palma Jlobertson Oldfield Herne
Strang Burman Chevrolet Dingley and
Soules are said to have signed con
tracts to come to Los Angeles for the
April meeting

I dont care what they say about me
M long M they keep saying said Tex
Rickard on one of his visits to Salt Lake
about a year ago when asked about
newspaper interviews
The truth is Tex has a failing for
the limelight He likes to see his name
in print and as he admits it dont much
matter what ia said Personally how
ever Rickard Is not in the least like
the eastern writers picture the Nevada
mining man and fight promoter Neither
is Rickard wont to boast about any of
his big strikes and there is no ex
aggerated ego about him other than the
faith in his ability to do big things that
hill peat accomplishments show
In the visit to Salt Lake above re
ferred to Rickard even then was fig
uring on bringing the JeffriesJohnson
fight to Salt Lake To a number of
close friends he broached the subject
and started the campaign that has
proven successful Those that think
Rickard came rushing into Salt Lake
after being struck with a happy idea
about the fight are mistaken He bad
been working on it for months
Had to Talk
One aide of his character which has
amused the newspaper contingent in
Salt Lake was seen when Tex spilled
over In Chicago on his way to New
I York In Salt Lake the plans for the
expedition of Rickard and Rishel had
I been known by the papers for some
days but at the request of those inter
ested they had not been published The
reason for the request was given
It would hurt Salt Lakes chances
Rickard will pop up on Broadway witb
the cash offer on the day the bids are
opened and Jimmy Coffroth and the rest
will be swept off their feet It must be
a surprise
Then came the trip east and when
half way was passed came sn Asso
ciated Press dispatch from Chicago
Rickard had spilled the story The
jingle of 120000 in his pockets was too
much and he must talk
At that however Rickard made good
with his bid and the men who know
him say he will make good with his
promise to Salt Lake about first choice
for the mill
His Yearly Fortune
Incidentally it begins to look as if
Rickard will make his yearly fortune
According to his own words he made
and then lost 1100000 a year for ten
years When Nevada was booming the
fortunes came and went easily but the
last two or three years have been hard
Richards last venture in Pioneer a
camp that h with characteristic optimism
mism said was going to b a world
beater fell down with the camp Now
it may be th fight that will pull him up
to the top ofthe heap again He says
he is not worrying and those who know
him best have no fear that his fortune
making ability is a thing of the past
New York Dec GAt J205 oclock
this morning 17 riders representing as
many twomen teams were sent away
in Madison Square garden in the an
nual sixday bicycle race Spectators
filled the big auditorium from pit to
ceiling and cheered the contestant
The field this year comprises the
best long distance riders of this and
foreign countries In it are 1 of the
favorites of previous sixday grinds
and several men unknown to Ameri
cnThe track a big wooden saucer
shaped oval of ten laps to the mile is
more steeply banked at tbe turns than
in former years and i I expected that
this will aid the winner of the event
TO beat the old record of 2727 miles
and 1 lap made by McFarland and
Moran last December
Following are the contestants
The riders cut out a fast pace at th
start with the result that before a m
had been traversed Rutt fell but was
up almost Instantly uninjured In the
eighth mile Leon Oeorget of the French
team came a cropper while in the twen
tieth both Wiley and Germain sustained
falls that required their temporary retirement
Until nearly th end of the first hour
spectacular sprints were indulged in and
a constant relieving of partners resulted
Then the men slowed down somewhat
and passed the first hours work a
bunched with twentyfour miles nine
laps to their credit The record for the
first hour twentyfive miles five laps
was made by Anderson and Vanonl In
1908At the end of the second hour all the
contestants were fled at 4 miles 7 Jap
1 I miles behind the record made a year
ago by L Fourcade and Faber
