FOR THE CHICAGO DERBY Entries of Modest and Rustic Received — Owners Requested Not to Ship Until Next Week.

Rustic, the property of Alfred Hennen Morris, a member of the New York Jockey Club, was considered by many the best horse in the Preakness. Postillion, of the International Stable, and Good Morning, both owned in Chicago, were other entries. Despite the efforts of the management to postpone shipments, horses continue to arrive. Phil Reuter, G. W. Atkinson and C. R Anderson came in from Cleveland and Joe Cooper and a division of the R. L. Baker stable came in from the far west. They were put away with the understanding that they will move at the request of the management. The management is asking all horsemen who are stabled comfortably some place else not to ship until the last of next week. By that time all the old stables will have new roofs and Swope and Mahoney, who have the track kitchen, under agreement with the Richelieu Catering Company, will be installed by that time. Joseph A.
