HAWTHORNE STABLES READY SATURDAY Edward R. Bradley writes from the Belmont Park race track that great interest is being manifested in the forthcoming meeting in Chicago beginning on September 30. All particulars of the meeting, in booklet form, have been mailed to the various tracks to be distributed among the horsemen. Everything is being done at the track for the convenience of the members and their guests. The Western Union Tiiid Postal will have wires for the benefit of the press, and all the concessions have been let to Samuel .Pruyn, formerly with the Hofbrau, Edelweiss, Richelieu and Kinsleys. Work on the various parts of the course, the paddock, grandstand, track, stable. are all progressing satisfactorily and will be completed not later than September 27. Notices have been sent to Toronto, Hamilton, Windsor, Latonia and Louisville that the track and barns will absolutely be ready for receiving horses not later than the coming Saturday. The government is co-operating in every possible way to get the infield cleared. They have 150 cars on the side track arid will load them immediately. All the surplus supplies will be stored in the warehouse north of th-3 paddock. With each department under a separate head working full hours, there is no question as to the outcome. Judge Murphy is busy in Canada and racing secretary Fred W. Gerhardy reports great progress, and indications point to a large consignment of horses from all the Canadian tracks. Kentucky will be well represented and the horsemen all feel that it is their duty to help Chicago out.
