CROKER SATISFIED WITH HIS HORSES. New York, November 25. It was suggested to Richard Croker that while lie was over here he might go over the breeding farms of the south and buy some new blood for his stud stables In Ireland. "No," he said. "I shall not take any stock back with me because I have as line a strain of breeding horses as you can find In any part of the world. 1 have already had one Derby winner and I hope that one of the three yearlings that I have entered for the Derby of 1910 will turn out to be another Orhy. Besides I am not buying horses now. My business is breeding them for sale." "Do you think that the shutting off of betting on the race tracks in this state will tend to hurt the breeding of ithoroughhredsV" Mr. Croker was asked. "I think it will." Mr. Croker answered. "I dont understand why all the papers or this city supported that anti-raw? track bill. People buy newspapers for the news ami the sporting news is of as much interest to readers as any other kind of news. Still. I supKSe that the papers follow wjiat they think the readers want. This is a democratic country and the voters make up a big jury which determines how things shall Ik? run."
