Heiidrie of the Windsor track stated last night that iu ail probability there would lie no racing in Windsor this similiter. This decision was reached on receipt of the news that the Niagara Jockey Club had decided to race for a period of thirty-six days at Fort Erie. President Hendrie said: "Providing the report from Chicago that races will be conducted at the Fort Erie track for a period of thirty-six days, beginning Jwly 27 to September 5. is true, it will lie out of the question to endeavor to hold the usual meeting at Windsor." Mr. Hendrie further stated that the Windsor track had contemplated an eighteen-day meeting, beginning August 21», but thinks a conflict in dates would not be beneficial to the local track. There is but one chance for the Windsor meeting, the possibility of a law being passed making it impossible to carry on an extended iiieetiBg. tin February 5 the legislature meets iu Toronto and such a measure may be adopted.
