NOTES OF THE TURF. II. K, Knapp, of the State Racing Commission, says that in all probability there will be no decision for a month by the Court of Appeals on the Empire City matter. Arthur McKnight, who acceptably filled the post of starter at Seattle during the recent meeting, has been engaged with his two assistants to do the starting on the Texas circuit. Mark Riordan, a bookmaker at work in the Bel- mont Park enclosure, fell to the floor while making up his odds for the fourth race AAednesday and was conveyed to his home after an examination by the track physician, Dr. Voorhees. Robett AAalden will take a big stable to New Orleans and will ship to the Crescent City Immediately after Benning. The horses lie will take south constitute the entire stable that runs in the name of his mother, Mrs. R. AA. AAalden, also that of Henncn and David Morris. It is improbable that Belle of Jessamine, cut down in her last race, will be seen in public again. Waldcn bought the mare from Thomas Hayes for breeding purposes ami he lias about decided to leave her at Bowling Brook and breed her to Cliil-, ton next spring. Chilton is a full brother to Perseverance and Brookdale Nymph, at the head of the Waldcn stud.
