The neeting of the members of the Thoroughbred Horse Association, which was scheduled for last night, was poorly attended on account of the heavy rains. Tin- committee, however, took up some important matters for discussion, one of which was their attitude regarding new tracks that might Inbuilt in Maryland. They decided it would be to the licst interests of the snort to discourage the creation of any more race courses in this state and that if any were constructed members of the association would not race over them. The committee is composed of William Carth. James Arthur, II. i. Bedwell and Dr. J. F. Adams. Mr. Bedwell informed the committee that several business men in Baltimore had spoken to him in regard tii racing and. among other things, said that they are in favor of the sport and would lend their aid to encourage racing, provided it was not overdone and that if any more tracks were built they would withdraw- their support. Kx -jockey J. Ranch, who at one time rode for several prominent owners in this country and later for Mr. Vanderbilt in Frame, was a visitor. Bauch may reenter the sport as an owner, provided he can pick up a few useful horses at a reasonable price. Jockey J. Williams was an arrival from Hot Springs; he will ride here as a free lance. The only claim yesterday was that made by P. L. Short, after his mare Pin Money won. Short, fearful that some one might take the mare, entered a claim for her at an advance of 125 over her entered price, and. as it was the only claim made, he was out hB25. Some of the horsemen do not look kindly on this new rule of the Jockey Club and naturally it is open to discussion. The 2." will be divided among the races run tomorrow, which means that it goes right back to the horsemen. On the face of it the rule looks like a good one. for the reason that if a man enters a horse at its proper value, he should not put in a retaining claim and vice versa. If he runs the horse for less value than its worth, he is entitled to lose, if no other claim but his is deposited.
