ARCADIA TO HAVE CLEAR FIELD. The reports whicli have been enerseticallv and persistently circulated for the last ninety days to the effect that "Curley" Brown and others, with the backing of John W. Gates, Harry Payne Whitney, Timothy D. Sullivan and other prominent New-Yorkers, would build a race track at Venice. Cal... seem to have died from the effects of denial and neglect. There probably was some good foundation for the story as far as Brown and his California associates were concerned, but when It was author-atatively stated that the project could not have the sanction of the Pacific Jockey Club and, if completed, must necessarily be conducted as an outlaw meeting, turfmen refused to give credence to any of the later announcements. That there will be no race course built at Venice for some time to come is now admitted on all sides, says a Los Angeles dispatch.
