1 HOW SAIN WAS NOT SOLD. Cincinnati, 0., Xovember 4. When Barney Scbreiber was here recently he told the representative of Daily Racing Form how the Keeue-Sain story originated. -Mr. Scbreiber says that a friend of Mr. Keene met him when lie was at Lexington and asked him if lie would sell Sain, and if he would name a price on the horse. Mr. Scbreiber told the gentleman that he was willing to sell Sain if he could get 50,000 for him. Permission was asked to submit it to Mr. Keene and Major Dalngerlield. This request was granted and afterward a representative of Mr. Keene came here from Xew York to see Scbreiber and went with him to Woodlands Farm, at Bridgeport, Mo., to inspect the stallion. "The deal was not closed, nor was it called off," says Scbreiber, "and it is in exactly the same status as when I was asked to name a price." There is uo doubt that an offer was made for the horse and that he was inspected by the negotiator. But there is a lot of doubt about the authority of the friend of Mr. Keene, who has been disclaimed by those who would have repre-: sented Mr. Keene had such a purchase been contemplated..
