"THE LESS SAID THE BETTER." "As to the outlook for next year, well, the less said the better. The election is still before- us! The proverbial Devil and the Deep Sea dance, allurj-ing on either hand, and no man may say what the morrow will bring forth," says Sports of the Times in the course of its comment on racing at the New York tracks. ; All bathos, of course, but between the. rival can? didates for Governor, there is a great gulf fixed, and . who can say whether the confines- of the. said gulf do not extend so far beyond the horizon line, that, like the oftqnoted extremes, thej- may meet on racing opinions. There lies the rub, and only Time, the great solver of intricate problems, will tell. "Of course there will always be racing. It is inherent In the American as In the English race. They may hamper it, they may clog It, but not while the .healthy blood Hushes the veins will It be stamped out, or seriously injured. The one tiling racing asked is that it be let alone, that reformers attend to their own troubles. To what extent this will be the case will probably be the last thought of most sensible, observant racing men as, at the close of the somewhat dreary racing season of 100G, they seek the old earth for their customary hibernation, and carefully and effectually draw the hole in after them."
