RANCOCAS JWNER COMING Harry Sinclair Reserves Box for Chicago Derby Day — More Horses Reach Howthorne. That the Rancocas Stable has designs on the Chicago Derby in earnest was assured yesterday when Walter J. Riley, president of the First Trust and Savings Bank of East Chicago, Ind., reserved a box for Harry Sinclair and his party for Derby Day. From every direction applications for boxes are coming in, some of them for the entire meeting. The horses of Wm. Mikel arrived at the grounds and Tom Shannon wired that he was on the way with Comic Song, Lord Granite, Better Times. Fifty Fifty, Lily M. and Ralco. C A. Coyle also wired that he was shipping Hermis Kemble and Demos from Montreal next Monday. Francis Dunne called for help on the stall reservation and orders were immediately given Billy Myer to continue building stalls up to the opening of the meeting. Work is progressing rapidly on the roads j leading to the track. The Business Mens Racing Association and the Cicero Board of j Supervisors have made a working agree- | ment on traffic and construction. Forty - Eighth Avenue, from the viaduct, is being I repaved and the other arteries to the track are being put in shape. The association has added to the admission a road tax of ten cents, which will be used to liquidate the expenses of road construction. Horsemen are warned not to ship to the track until they have heard from Francis Dunne that their stalls have been assigned.
