EMPIRE TURF NOTES TONKERS, N. Y., Oct. 21. Owing to the death of Mrs. Woolman, it was announced that Rocky Ford will not be started in the last race at Empire City tomorrow. Jockey R. Carter has given first call on his services to Willis Sharpe Kilmer for the Pimlico meeting. Later he will ride at Tijuana. Little John Colen, the apprentice rider, who was seriously injured by the falling of Ben Wood at the start of the first race, was in the employ of T. J. Carroll. He is a native of Chester, Pa., and had shown some promise as a rider. It was discovered that he had suffered a bad cut at the base of the skull as a result of his fall, and he was removed to the Yonkers hospital. Oliver Martin, well known to New York racing, and in his day a jockey of importance, was called to his home in Chicago Monday night by the sudden death of his wife. Mrs. Martin had been in poor health for some time, but recent reports had been so cheering that her death came as a severe shock, and Martin has the sincere condolences of his many friends of the turf.
