LIVE METROPOLITAN TURF NEWS Xew York, December 19. Miss Elizabeth Dain-gerfield has written her brother, Algernon Dainger-field, assistant secretary of the Jockey Club, that the announced sale 6f the Corrigan horses at Kingston Farm, over which she presides, was a complete surprise to her. She says the stock is in excellent condition. . W. C. Edwards, secretary of the Jamaica track, is making diligent inquiries concerning the coming taxation, especially that coming under the head of excess profits. "Our track wont have to pay any excess," said he, "as the association cannot pay a dividend on its stock under existing conditions." The question of tax on admissions will be discussed by the managers of the local associations at a meeting to be held in the early spring. Frederick Johnson shipped his stable of eight horses to Hot Springs today. They include six coming two-year-olds, Cousin o Mine and All Star, the latter a foreign-bred three-year-old that has never started. In the shipment were Home Sweet Home, belonging to Charles Quin, and Grundy and Beaverkill, the property of Mr. Johnsons trainer, Miller Henderson.
