Gardner, Mr. George C. Adams, well known in locsl racing circles, returned yesterday from Ft, Erie, where he has been attending the meet ing of the Ft. Erie Jockey Club, and Is enthusiastic enthusiastic in his praise of everybody and everything connected with the new track. He says the treatment accorded by all the officials, from the highest to the lowest, to visiting horsemen surpassed anything he eyer experienced. A poor owner with one horse was treated with as much courtesy and consideration as the man with a powerful powerful string of racers snd thousands of dollars. dollars. The rulings of Judge Burke, who presided; presided; the handicapping of Mr. Frank Nelson., Nelson., of the Toronto Globe, especially engaged engaged for that purpose, and th starting of ex-Jockey ex-Jockey ex-Jockey Fltspatrick were all that could be desired by the most fastidious, lliere were always from 17 to 24 books on the line, and monev seemed very plentiful. There were about 173 races run during the meeting, and of tnea only one looked suspicious. suspicious. This was a weird ride by Jockey Forbes. The boy was promptly suspended by Judge Burke, snd would have been ruled off had the Judges been able to trac th crookedness directly to him. Th plant Is not quite complete in all its details, but will be all shlDshaD br fall. If th track holds a fall meeting; which Is very probable, there is not a doubt that all norsemen wno par ticlnated at the meeting will be sure to re turn with their string and Induce other owners to go with them.
