ARCADIA TRACK A SURETY. SCHREIBER, ROSE AND BALDWIN EMPLOY A. M. ALLEN TO BUILD IT. t Expect To Race Over New Course December 1 Complete List of Oakland Stakes Futurity and Derby Conditions. Los Angeles, Cal., September 17. The Arcadia track is to lie built. Barney Schreiber and George Rose will hold a controlling interest in it and the plant will lie finished in time for racing, possibly by December 1, next, but certainly before Christmas. This much was settled yesterday when Messrs. Rose and Schreiber made the first payment to E. J. Baldwin for the land on which the great racing plant is to be situated. The price naid for the land 100 acres was more than. ,000 an acre, but not much more. E. J. Baldwin takes some stock as part payment, but less than one-third. Baldwin needs money more than he needs land or race tracks. A. M. Allen, builder of the later Chicago tracks and every great racing plant in the west, is to begin operations at once, taking full charge, of the construction work. He promises to have a practical racing plant ready for operation by December 1, the present date selected for the opening of the new race track. The track will be named Santa Anita, and the club will be known as the New Los Angeles Jockey Club. According to contractor Allen, the work that has been done thus far at Baldwin Park is not of much effect, as it has not been done along lines that lie considers proper in building a race track in a limited lime. Schreiber lias come to Los Angeles to stay until Christmas, at least, lie says, and lias moved from the Van Nuys Hotel to apartments on South Olive street. Schreiber still holds to the opinion that the track can lie completed within the time loft for holding n winter meeting to begin December 1.
