GILPIN UNDER THE BAN AT BUFFALO. Likewise Owner H. Booker Case Is Referred to the Jockey Club. Rnffalo, X. Y., July 4. The running of the horse Gilpin, favorite in the seventh race at Kenllworth this afternoon, brought about the suspension of both the horse and his owner, II. Hooker, and the case has been referred to the Jockey Club for further consideration. Gilpin lias been racing on the Northern Circuit since the opening of the Toronto meeting and has shown several in and out performances. At Montreal his form somersaults got jockey Willie Knapp into trouble. In his race previous to todays effort Gilpin carried 111 pounds, beat good horses and established a new track record, running a mile and an eighth ilu l.:5"i. He was meeting an inferior band today, earned four pounds less and trailed along in the rear for the major portion of the trip. In the absence of L. A. ltonsaek, F.ugene Wayland has been handling Gilpin and when he was called on for an explanation of the horses loss of speed, lie was unable to enlighten the stewards. Wayland was in no way held responsible for Gilpins running, hut on Bon-sacks return he may be asked to answer some pertinent questions. This was the only unpleasant incident of the afternoon. The card offered was a good one and had as features the Independence Handicap and a steeplechase over the short course. Fred Cooks Tom Dolan proved an easy winner in the Independence Handicap and incidentally established a new track record for a mile and an eighth by running tlie distance in l:52g, or a second and two-liftlis faster than Gilpins mark made June 20. Tom Dolan was ridden by Lyenrgus, ran in behind Tem-nieraire for six furlongs, then went to the front and was drawing away at the finish under restraint. The pace in the race was very fast throughout, the first mile being run in 1:159. The Independence Handicaps story, is tabled Year. Winner. A. Wt. Jockey. Val. Time. 1005Mistiss :! S4 J.

Please made the others in the third race look cheap, winning in runaway fashion. Her margin over Seymour lieutler was five lengths. The latter is a big, growthy colt and is inclined to be a slow breaker. He is very highly thought of by owner Schreiber and will undoubtedly show to better advantage over a longer distance of ground.
