TROUBLE TERMINATED AT NEW ORLEANS. New Orleans, La., October 2S. Early this morning H. D. Brown, representing himself, and Dr. G. A. McDiarmid. representing tiie Business Mens Racing Association, put their signatures to an agreement which practically closes the deal for the sale of City Park race track to the Business Mens Racing Association. The terms are the same as published yesterday, with two exceptions. One is that Mr. Brown surrenders any claim to the buildings on his track in consideration of the payment to him on March 1, of ,250, the other is that he binds himself not to race in New Orleans, Jefferson or St. Bernard Parishes during the next eight years. The latter condition was insisted on by the local business men in view of the fact that they were required not to open here before January 1 and not to race after the carnival, witli the right to Brown to enjoin them from doing so. "I think that is fair. The agreement ought to be binding on both," said Mr. Brown, at the final meeting of the representatives of the two sides. This ends the local racing controversy.
