MARYLAND TRACKS MAY BE TAXED. Baltimore, Md.. April 10.— President Campbell of the State Senate had a conference yesterday with Governor Harrington on legislation at the extra session of the General Assembly to raise additional revenues with which to meet the heavy expenses to fall upon the state because of hostilities. Among the new sources of revenue suggested by lresident Campbell was the race tracks, which at former sessions have expressed a willingness to hand over ■ part of their profits to the State Treasury. Until last year, when the profit was not sufficiently large as to justify the action. Pimlico had each year for two or three years, handed over a good-sized sum to charity. It is estimated that SCiO.OOO annually could be secured from the tracks.
