SEEKING EXPERT ADVICE New Washington Park Breeders Association Leaving No Stone Unturned to Find the Best. Ernest F. Bohne of Lexington, Ky., known all over the blue grass section as an authority on the building of breeding and housing barnes, has forwarded plans and specifi- j cations of a set of barns like tnose he built for Colonel Edward R. Bradley at the Idle Hour Stock Farm. Colonel Bradley wrote William J. Murray that Mr. Bohne erected a system of barnes that are not surpassed in America and sent the plans to help the architects simplify matters here. Colonel Edward R. Bradley is much interested in the proposed New Washington Park Breeders Association and signified his willingness to erect a barn for the accommodation of horses from the Idle Hour Stock Farm. Bradley Wilson of Lexington, who helped to build both the Devonshire and Dade Park courses, has spent the last week in Chicago looking over the racing situation and is much enthused at the prospects. Mr. Wilson has made a number of suggestions that both architect Byer and engineer Murray accepted as of great importance. Mr. Wilson leaves for New Orleans in a few days and will confer with judge Murphy on the Chicago situation. William J. Murray, chief engineer, and architect Scott Dyer, who are perfecting the final plans for the New Washington Park Breeders Association plans, have completed the detail work and the complete picture of all the buildings have been joined into one mammouth structure, showing the united buildings from the track side. After the approval by judge Murphy the finance committee will give authority to order the steel and go right along with the construction work. A handsome prospectus showing details of construction, telling just what the New Washington Park Breeders Association intend doing, a short story, but concise, with beautiful scenery, compiled with records and racing scenes from other plans, will be issued in the course of a few weeks. The advance sheets shows conclusively that the executive forces are on the job and are going to do things in Chicago style.
