C0FFR0TH UPHELD IN TIJUANA CONTROL SAN DIEGO, Cal., December 16. According to a telegram received yesterday from the City of Mexico by Attorney J. R. Orci of this city the Mexican Supreme Court has ordered that possession of the Tijuana race track be retained by the company of which James W. Coffroth is president. This telegram was from Attorneys V. M. Castillo and I. P. Huarez, counsel for the Tijuana Jockey Club, Cof-froths organization, in Mexico City. Contrary to the demands of counsel for the Zaragosa Investment Company and Jerome Bassity and against the orders of the federal judge of the district of Tijuana the Supreme Court by request of counsel for the Tijuana Jockey Club has decided that the ruling handed down by the aforesaid judge be held in abeyance and that none of his orders be executed until the Supreme Court decides the litigation. This latest decision of the Supreme Court leaves matters as they were before and leaves the company in possession of the track without interruptions in racing. With this order and two previous ones handed down by the justice of the peace acting as federal district judge at Tijuana there are now three legal decisions that protect the possession of the track and the continuance of racing.
