NOTES OF THE TURF. Jockey O. Chandler and the horse Trapsetter, which he rode in the last race at Denver July 3, have been ruled off the turf. Pinkie Prim, tlie two-year-old daughter of Pink Coat Mary Malloy, which is carded to start for the lirst time in the second race at Latonia tomorrow, is a full sister to Pink Star, winner of the Kentucky Derby. In posting the first prices on the Pontchartrain Handicap at Windsor the man in the field book got his ligures crossed and made Fantastic 10 to 1 and Prolific 21 tol. He discovered his mistake after lie had taken and saw the pikers swarming at him like flies around a sugar barrel. Some sensation has been created in German turf circles by the withdrawal of tlie totalisator-licenses from the Altonaer Itace Club and the German Trotting Union. This step naturjilly makes the promoting of meetings impossible and is synonymous with a dissolution of both bodies unless some measures of preservation can be arrived at. Bookmaker Fontelieu. according to tlie Cincinnati papers, takes a "great delight in laying against anything that, jockey Austin rides, and the consequence Is a losing sheet whenever tlie colored boy lands a winner." At the same time Fontelieu -should be winner on his operations in this direction, since Austin has been first on only sixteen out of 111 mounts.
