The best and most varied f.ig end of the season racing card is down for slcclsiou at Belmont Park tomorrow. It includes tliree valuable stakes in the Brook Cup Steeplechase, lit- Niirsery Handicap and the Municipal, besides I reo verv attractive overnight races.

Rain an.i biiikI. however, should not cause any withdrawals among the lopnotchers. for they are all tried mud vwmiers. JMdle Dugan will leave for California next week, his mother and brother accompanying him. Probabilities are that the fall meeting at .Tamaica will he held notwithstanding the opposition at Bai-Tli.orc. Even effort has been brought to bear on the Pimlico Association to have it change its dates t y that Jamaica could run its meeting without con-diet, but the Baltimore management has failed to ;igree to any changes. The matter is not settled, nit the probahllites are ten to one that Baltimore will hold its meeting as scheduled.

Most,, of the principal stockholders are in favor of holding the fall meeting notwithstanding the adverse conditions. They ate willing to end the season according to the wishes ot all concerned, no matter at what cost. This will be good news for horsemen who were fearful that tho meeting would be called off, which would deprive them of a share in the distribution of :.ometbing like 5,000. that being the presumed mtount that will be given away in overnight purses and handicaps.
