LATONIA AUTUMN MEETING 1 Racing- at Picturesque Kentucky Track Starts Next Saturday. Over 1,000 Horses Will Be There to Strive for Rich Stakes and Generously Endowed Overnight Purses. : CINCINNATI, Ohio, Sept. 8. With the inauguration of the Latonia fall season of racing only five days in the future the picturesque track of the Kentucky Jockey Club, situated across the Ohio River from this city is beginning to awaken from its summer lethargy and take on scenes of bustle and activity that generally precede the opening of an important race meeting. Everything at the plant is in a state of preparation, giving abundant testimony to the exceedingly good care given the place since the close of the previous meeting. There will be no lack of high class racing material with which to fill the tempting stakes and overnight races, and this is made certain by the large number of good horses already upon the scene of action. During the past fortnight horses have been arriving from other racing points, and a survey of the stables this morning disclosed the fact that approximately eight hundred and fifty horsea nearly all ready to race are on the grounds. According to the reservation list two hundred and fifty more are due to reach here in the course of the next seven days. The general health of the horses now here is exceptionally good and there is almost an entire absence of sickness among the equine colony. Most of the pretentious stables that participated in the recent Hawthorne meeting are now here and they include the establishment of Harned Brothers and Jones,- Audley Farm Stable, Will Perkins, W. F. and C. H. Knebel-kamp, Howard Oots, C. A. Hartwell, J. W. Marchbank, I. Weil, A. P. Foley and the second division of the J. N. Camden stale. The stable of J. W. Marchbank, the California owner and breeder, which came in charge of B. John, included Rock Heather, Snooksie Bradley, Eva, Ackley and Barn Dollar. It will mark the first time for the Marchbank colors to be seen on any Kentucky track. Trainer Bert John is the man who first brought out Jockey Ivan Parke and he has another good riding prospect in the person of Dick Johnson, a youngster from the far West Johnson will not enter upon his riding career until the Tijuana meeting, according to trainer John.

There was a prospect of Lee O. Cotner, another from the stable being trained by John Jones being sold but the price asked by owner R. W. Collins, 535,000, was deemed too high by the prospective purchaser, J. T. Hedder-man, who had already bought Sanola. Trainer Jones also brought with him Bear Shot and Cannon Shot which he will train for C. A. Hartwell, the California owner. Jockey G. Ellis under contract to Mr. Hartwell, was also turned over to Jones, whose mounts here will be made by Bobbie Gailor. Charles E. Patterson is a recent arrival from the East with the stable of P. T. Chinn. The stable, since coming here; has been strengthened by the addition of Sweetum, Timely Thoughts and Alexander Moore and Miss Kate, which had been turned out at the Chinn farm. Miss Kate is the property or Senator J. W. Bailey. The second division of the E. R. Bradley stable is here in charge of William Hurley, together with seven horses that "Dick" Thompson sent from Saratoga. Among the latter are Beauty Slave, Bye Bye, Broken Toy and Beau Butler. Jockeys L. McDermott, S. Griffin and R. Fisher are arrivals from Hawthorne with the Howard Oots stable and will ride during the Latonia meeting. Trainer E. J. OConnell reported that he had sent W. F. Knebelkamps Locust Leaves, Mason Towle and Bad Luck to Aurora 10 race instead of shipping them with the others of the string to Latonia. Jockeys Danny Jones and W. Fronk, now riding at Aurora, will be here to ride opening day. Jockey Harry Stutts, now riding at Belmont Park, will also arrive in time to accept mounts Saturday.
