1 1 1 ; 1 1 AFRAID OF SANTA ANITA CANDIDATES. Oakland. Cal., January 17. — Local horsemen are wondering if the contingent now racing at Santa Anita Park, whence have come in quick succession four horses winning as many of the stakes at the local track, will continue that order of things and also take the Burns Handicap. I* .Z. De Ar-man shipped Early Tide here to win the Pacific-1nion Handicap, the Keene Pros, brought Clamor from Los Angeles and won the Christinas Handicap and R. F. Carman took the New Year and Follans-bee Handicaps with Arimo and Magazine respec- tively. S. C. Hildreth and R. F. Carman are the principal nominators to the 0,000 race and both of them are now at the southern track. Their horses eligible to start are probably the best of the entry list and. coupled with the fact that the horses are now tit and ready owing to the advantage of having a fast track for training, is an additional reason why the owners who have remained at Oakland fear that a Santa Anita horse will win the big race. That ten or twelve horses will be shipped here from Los Angeles to run for the Burns is a conservative es- timate to make, in advance of the announcement of weights by Handicapper Nathanson next Monday.
