READY AT LAKESIDE. Cheerful expectancy prevails in the ranks of I ocal patrons of racing. Thursday the rapid patter of the flying feet of thoroughbreds in action will be heard at Lakeside and the Chicago racing season of 1900 will at last be inaugurated. It is true that Lakeside is across the border line in Hoosierland, but all the same it is in all essentials a Chicago race track and it is well assured in advance that the racing there this spring will be superior to any that has heretofore marked the history of the course. The institution of stakes ha6 resulted in drawing horses of a class averaging well up with anything that has so far shown at Memphis, Nashville and Louisville, and with fair weather some notable contests will be sure to mark the progress of the near-at-hand meeting. Because of insufficient stabling for more than the horses meant for racing at the meeting Secretary Nathanson had great difficulties to contend with, but has surmounted all, and now has everything ready for the opening day. The stables are full of racers ready for the fray and those not ready or not intended to be started until later i are safely provided for at Harlem and Hawthorne. Among those who arrived at Lakeside Sunday with race horses were : Carruthers and Shields, Highland Park, Mich., with six, including Erwin. Topmast and King Carnival ; J. B. Res-pass, from Covington, Ky., with twenty, among them being Frank Thompson, Maceo, Mr. Brown. Gold Fox, Abe Furst and John Grigsby. Respass string also includes a likely lot of two-year-olds. James Curl brought five from Humphreys, Mo. Special race trains will be run to the track during the coming meeting by both the Fort Wayne and Illinois Central roads. The train schedule will be ready shortly. Among the many owners of racers who have stall room at Lakeside are the following, with the number of horses : J. Arthur, 8; P. M. Civill, 4 ; T.
