In future the judges at Oakland, Cal.,

Notwithstanding the prospects of the
defeat of the amendment that would
prevent racing in Ne\y Jersey, it is not
likely that there will ho racing in the
State for a couple of years, if then. Leg
islation would have to be secured and
this means a complete reversal of New
Jersey polities. All the defeat of the
amendment does is to make it possible
to get legislation if the proper men can
he put in office to grant the requests. In
other words, racing in Jersey is a matter
of politics, pure and simple.

Commerce and Finance.
Prices of Flour were well supported,
hut demand was of a hand-to-mouth char
acter. Spot Bran was in moderate supply
and firm, with a fair inquiry for choice
stock. No. 1 and choice Hay were in
fair request at former rates, and offerings
were moderate, but. medium and low
grades were abundant, and weak. Straw
was dull and freely offered at the late
decline. Refined Sugars were strong
and 1-lfic. to jc. higher, but ruled quiet
at revised quotations. Provisions sold
in a jobbing way on a basis of quotations.
Wheat opened firm, due to higher Liver
pool cables and bullish speculation in
the West, and the call closed jc. above
last evening's rates. There was, how
ever, little inquiry from speculators
exporters. Corn options were stronger
on call, due to light offerings, the rise
in wheat and higher Western adviceB,
but speculators were indifferent and ex
porters had no workable orders. Local
ear lots were quiet, but firm, under small
supplies. Oats in ear lots were steady
under moderate offerings, but demand
was light. Exporters were indifferent.
Cotton was 1-1 Go. higher.
