KENTUCKY RACING COMMISSION SAFE. Lexington, Ky., December 9. Although! n report to the contrary has been circulated It ia not probable that the newly elected Republican governor of Kentucky will attempt to appoint a new State Racing Commission. The law creating tho commission was passed in March, 1900, and provides that "the members of said commission shall hold their offices for a term of four years, and the first commission shall be" appointed by the governor within twenty days after this act shall go into effect." Except there be death or resignation, the terms of the present commissioners, Messrs. J. P. Chlnn, of Harrodsburg; D. F. Clay, of Paris; Milton Young, of Lexington; Charles F. Grainger, of Louisville, and Louis Descognets, of Lexington, will not expire until March, 1910. They have served acceptably so far and there is no tangible reason for a change.
