HA WTHORNE TURF NOTES AND OTHER NEWS ITEMS OF INTEREST Joseph A. Murphy made official announcement Wednesday morning that the present meeting will be extended one day and end on Saturday, October 11, thus making thirteen racing days, instead of the twelve days as originally planned. The 8,000 in purses assigned for the last four days of the meeting will be pro rated over five days instead of four. This will be keeping faith with the horsemen and will also give six more purses for distribution. "All obligations to the horsemen have been promptly met and will continue to be met, "Judge Murphy said yesterday. Morris Hoffman of New York, a well-known turf follower throughout the United States, is an arrival at Hawthorne for the remainder of the meeting. "William A. Pinkerton, head of the International Detective Bureau under that name, -witnessed the afternoons racing from the judges stand. He was an enthusiastic spectator and is heartily in favor of a continuance i.t racing in Chicago. The Hawthorne plant is under the policing of the Pinkerton forces, and that alone means protection. A collection will be taken up next Saturday among horsemen for the purpose of purchasing three more brood mares for the United States Remount Station at Hawthorne. There are only two brood mares quartered here at the present time. The program book for the first nine days of the Havana meeting was distributed among horsemen by Mr. Bender.
