NOTES OF THE TURF. Samuel Duff, bookmaker, died at Louisville. November 5. G. Milsapp. who has been racing on the Texas circuit, has made application for nine stalls at Santa Anita Park. Starter McKnight. who has been dispatching the fields on the Texas circuit, has made quite a name for himself and has become very popular with both the horsemen and patrons of racing in the south. Dutiful, the old gray Faraday gelding, is going along like a two-vear-old in his training at Santa Anita Park. Dutiful, despite his dickey legs, has always been popular with the Los Angeles followers of the sport, who never fail to back him when he starts. A. F. Dayton intends to sblp Jack Nunnally back to Santa Anita immediately and will point him for the Pomona Handicap. Dayton figures on giving his star plenty of work this coming winter and. as Jack Nunnally is one of the kind that keeps on edge for a long time, expects him to capture quite a few stake races. The appeal of bookmaker William Davis to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals in a case where he was convicted and sentenced to an hour s imprisonment, has been dismissed in his behalf, the subsequent enactment by Congress of the law making betting a penal offense, rendering the case n matter of no consequence. J. Pelter and his old stand-by. Elfin King, were among the recent arrivals at Santa Anita Park. Sam Bernard, Chief Desmond. Lancashire Lad and Godfather are the other horses In the Pelter string. Chief Desmond proved to be a useful animal in racing in the northwest and Pelter thinks the Schrelber cast-off will do well in the selling races at Santa Anita. It Is reported that Judge O. H. Sumpter of Hot Springs. Ark., who was supposed to be elected state senator and who was relied upon to bring about the restoration of racing at Hot Springs, has now been declared defeated by a decision in the courts "and on a recount of votes, and his opponent, who was regarded as an enemy of racing, will probably be sent to tha senate,
