"BOOTS" DURNELL NO WAR CRY. Oakland, Cal., December 1G. The sensation mongers are seeking to build a new racing war out of the discipline given "Boots" Durnell by the Jockey Club. Long dispatches here tell about Durnell being invited to race at New Orleans by Ed Cor-rigan as a rebuke to the Jockey Club. No such invitation has been given and none is expected. Durnell has been notified that he will not be allowed to make entries here and is preparing to sell his horses. He will seek vindication in a reasonable way and may - succeed in having the bar against him lifted, as he expects. His contract op jockey E. Dugan is a good one and will also be sold, if Durnell cannot race on the metropolitan courses. Mr. II. P. Whitney may purchase the contract wlie. the time comes that Durnell decides to sell. Lexington, Ky., December 1C Mr. Corrigan is not responsible fo- the stories sent from here about his taking sides with "Boots" Durnell against the Jockey Club and inviting Durnell to race bis horses here. "I. am attending to my own business, not the Jockey Clubs or Durnells," said Mr. Corrigan, when asked about the matter. Mr. and Mrs. Corrigan left tonight for Magnolia Springs, Ala., where Mrs. Corrigan will spend the winter.
