GOSSIP OF THE TURF. There is an air of bustle and excitement these days around the track of the Metropolitan Jockey Club at Jamaica. With the opening day little more than a month away much remains to be done before the gates can be thrown open. In all parts of the enclosure large forces of men are at work on the different things to be done, but C. S. Voorhees, who has the work in charge, predicts that everything will be spic and span on April 27. If it is, it. will be order out of chaos. This much can be said, however, and that is that when completed the new jockey club will have a home of which it can well afford to feel proud, and the governing body will be subject to congratulations on the strength and progress of its youngest member. Nothing is being stinted. The best materials are being employed, and in the hands of skilled mechanics are bound to result in comfort and stability. New York Daily America.
