PROFITABLE TO CRESCENT CITY. New Orleans, La., December 19. A most remarkable fact and one that can be attested, by local people, is that the patronage of the two big tracks in operation here is now mainly made up of ont-of-town race lovers. If the race association had to depend on the local people for support, they would find it hard to make botli ends meet. There Is no doubt that Instead of being a drain on the community it augments its revenue heavily.
