Maginn announced to horsemen at Oaklawn this afternoon that there will be nine weeks racing at one of the St. Louis tracks this spring, beginning April 18 and ending June 10. He said he had been instructed by Captain C. A. Tilles to make this announcement, but that he had no knowledge as to plans and did nut know at which track the meeting would tie held. He presumes that it will he at lHdniar Park. He says Kinloch Park cannot be put into condition for racing without heavy expenditure. St. Louis. Mo.. March 16. — Official confirmation of the announcement from Hot Springs as to racing bere was not procurable this afternoon. However, there seems to tic general knowledge in sporting circles that plans have been made for a meeting at Delmar Park. The bill prohibiting the telephoning of bets out of the state for registration does not become effective until June 15. The Missouri Supreme Court recently decided that the state has the right to revoke the charter of the Delmar Jockey Club for failure to comply with the provision concerning an annual agricultural fair, but the case has been appealed to the Supreme Court of the Inited States and pending a decision from that tribunal the charter is valid. For the past week a force of men has been engaged in cleaning up Delmar Park. The bill introduced by Senator Gardner, prohibiting the publication of racing information, failed to become a law.
