The inning meeiing al Port BHa a ill be the shortest held there in sj years, in previous years the Panncr Hendrie track . i Windsor raced in opposition to the Keailworth meeting and they always elaimed that the confliel did not hurt either track. 1 understand thai Mr. Hendrie has purchased 7,000 worth of stock in the New Buffalo Jin-key Chrh, which now controls Kenilworth. but I dont suppose that this would have any hearing on the stand which he now takes in refusing to race against the Buffalo course. 1 niter Fanners and Hendrie s eontrol. the ring at Fort Krie lias always heap a eradicate one. last eaeaa they extended their meetini: so that it con dieted with lhat at Montreal.
