i i - * - GOVERNOR FOLK IN GENERAL DENIAL. Jefferson City. Mo., March 5. — Governor Joseph W. Folk last night made a denial of statements credited to Barney Schreiber and Joseph W. Murphy to the effect that anti-racing legislation had inter- fered with the breeding of horses in Missouri. He said that if poolrooms could be shown to be running in Kansas City and St. Louis, as the race track advocates claimed, he would dismiss the police commissioners of those cities.
