NEW MANAGERS AT NEW ORLEANS I i i NEW ORLEANS. La.. March 5.— The racing sit- «. nation here continues a theme for widespread pub- | licity himI rumors were as plentiful as the steady ] falling raindrops this afternoon. There seems a «• general sentiment crystallizing that a change in the directorate is ne essaiy and that, to carry on the sport or free it from legislative jeopardy, changes i will have to be made that will insure the racing be cleared of suspicion. The stewards course in issuing a drastic ruling ? at the last minute of their functioning power is ; | construed as weakness. It is held that if the violations occurred they should have checked them , • piomptly. The trials of Remy Dorr. Jack Sheehan, "Frisco" ■ Gardner and Tom Shaw for alleged violations of the Licke law begin tomorrow. The general opinion . at present prevails that they will he found guilty ■ and will at once carry their case on appeal to the , Supreme Court. It Is said little financial gain will fall to the , rredit of the Fair Orouuds from the recent meeting. Their big purse offerings and added overhead ex- r pense were the greatest in the history of any track here. The business as a whole was disap|ointing : this winter. Departures were liberal today despite the in- . element weather. Many of the raeing visitors went 1 to Hot Springs. Ark., for a stay there until the 1 resumption of racing at Lexington and at Bowie. • There were many shipments of racers to Mobile 1 . for the ten days meeting, which begins there ; March 8. Joseph A. Murphy, judge Monck and Herman » ] Conkllug. who presided at Mexico City during the * forty -day meeting just closed, stopped off here en t route to their respective homes. Murphy stated I that financially the Mexican meeting did not fare i well, but that the meeting served well as an introductory pioi osition and there is possibilities of its| I I future.
