STARS FOR CHICAGO 1 Prominent Stables East and West Coming to Hawthorne. — _t Black Gold, Nellie Morse, Beau Butler, Chilhowee and Others Entered in Chicago Derby. » "The halcyon days of Washington Park will have nothing on the racing we will offer the Chicago public at Hawthorne." said Joseph A. Murphy, general manager of the Chicago Business Mens Racing Association, who returned to his desk yesterday after trips to Toronto, New York and Latonia. "This may seem an extravagant statement if it was not substantiated by actual facts. I brought back the entry of Black Gold in the Derby. Mr. Webb waited to hand it to me in person. He made a special request for four stalls in the old Corrigan barn near the three-quarters post and will ship right after the Latonia Derby. Senator Johnson N. Camden, president of the Kentucky Jockey Club, will take the rest of the barn with his stable. "I also brought back the entries of Senator Norris and Sarko from the Kenton Stable, which will have fifteen horses here ; the entry of Altawood. which finished fourth in the Kentucky Derby. I also have the entry of Chilhowee, which finished second and. as we already have the entry of Beau Butler, we have the four first horses in the big Kentucky feature. RANCOCAS COMING HERE. "Whrn I was in New York I had a personal chat with Sam Hildreth, trainer of the Ran-cocas Stable. He told me if Dave Learys health improved he was going to send a division of the Rancocas Stable here to rac« in his charge. In any event, he will give us several entries in our stakes and will have a representative here for the Derby. I talked with Jimmy Rowe of the Harry Payne Whitney Stable and he told mo that his three-year-olds were not much. However, he will have a division of his stable here in charge of Mose C.oldblatt, who has entered Uproar from the Whitney Stable and Privilege from his own in the Derby. Gold-blatt will have 2G horses in his charge here. In addition to these, Clyde Phillips will be here with the entire western division of the Greentree Stable. He has entered Rinkey. winner of the Ashland Oaks, Dazzler and Pickpocket in the Derby and in addition t these. Exodus and Moonraker in the Independence and Labor Day handicaps. "I also saw Alex Gordon, trainer of the Bud Fisher Stable and he is going to enter Nellie Morse, winner of the Preakness and Mr. Mutt in the Derby and will be there with one or both of them. Stake Me, King Tut, Graeme are other entries to date. Johnny Schorr has promised us Modest from the E. B. McLean Stable, Pete Coyne will send us King Gorin II., and we expect entries from Frank Brown, Bob Walden and others. The Derby bids fair to be the greatest three-year-old race of the summer. IX MEMORIAM ENTERED. "Bob Gilmore handed me the entry of In Memoriam in the Independence and Labor Day Handicaps. He told me his horse was going along fine and he is anxious to repeat his victories of last year here. It might be that we will be able to arrange some specials with In Memoriam as the central figure. "A. B. Hancock is coming with twenty horses, headed by Audacious, which broke the track record at Latonia Friday. Mr. Hancock asked me to reserve him hotel aecommoda-tiontions for the whole meeting. J. B. Res-pess is also coming for the entire meeting and Howard Oots also is bringing his own and some horses for Polk Laffoon of the Kentucky Racing Commission, and others. Pete Coyne is bringing one of the most pretentious strings to be here. Williams Perkins, J. C. Milam, T. J. Pendergast, M. Low-enstein. E. R. Bradley, H. Xeusteter. T. M. Murphy, H. T. Batchler. H. I. Headley. C. A. Hartwell, Audley Farm and others will make up the Kentucky contingent. From Xew York will come the A. Swenke, Jack Richardson, Sam Louis, Ix uis Bauer and other strings and the best that are at Omaha will come to represent the far west. "There will be a brilliant array of riders. Ivan Parke, 1.. McDermntt. Karl Pool, Griffin, WqoLs, Corcoran, Stutts, Harvey and many others will be here. "Everywhere I warned people that the associations policy was strict obedience to law as construed by judge Lindsay and then* would be no temporizing with law breakers by the association itself."
