NOTES OF THE TURF. The five-year-old chestnut horse Oliver Cromwell, by The Commoner Annie Chinn, is reported dead. II. G. Bcdwell has sent Salable to Brentwood Stock Farm and the horse will probably not race again this winter. Apprentice jockey ODonuell, who is employed by J. E. Hoppas, has been indefinitely suspended for his bad ride on Lassen at Oakland last Monday. The Irish racing sharps think that, if looks go for anything, tbe Americus yearling Alabama, out of Rhoda B., should be in the thick of tin? fight with the best two-year-olds of next season. The five-year-old brown horse Kinsman, by Borgia Roma II., is a bad actor at the post. Starter Holtman, who dispatches tbe fields at Santa Anita Park, has been having his troubles with him. Dennis Stafford, which was left behind In the east by Fred Burlew, has been gelded and now appears a fine coming three-year-old. Last spring lie showed good form, and If looks co.int lie should come back to it again next season. Some of the San Francisco papers are now ac cusing the colored trainer, Faulkner, alias Wilson, who was Implicated in the Madrl ringing affair at New Orleans earlier in the month as the man who tried to spring Irene O. as a ringer at Oakland, last year. Charles Edward, working on the boulevard of Long Island, looks more like a draught horse than a race horse now, he having spread and grown so much in his long let-up .since the Belmont Park fall meeting.
