detectives of the Burns agency The District Attorney who has visited Belmoiit Park ever since Decoration Day to observe the enforce ¬ ment of the law is quoted as follows followsI I intend to have a subpoena issued for Kdilor Arthur Brisbane of tlie New York Kvening Journal ordering him to appear before a county Justice and supply the names of tlie Burns detectives who have secured evidence of law breaking I asked Mr Brisbane over tlie telephone to furnish my otlice with the information lie had obtained through ids detectives so that 1 could begin action at once But he refused saying that the evidence would be reserved for publication in the New York Ameri can As Air Brisbane and the Hearst newspapers charge that there is open gambling and bookmak ing at the track I intend to allord an opportunity for them to furnish legal proof in open court courtIt It is my desire to prosecute the persons al ¬ leged to be bookmakers by Mr Brisbane and the Hearst newspapers and 1 will use all the evidence that may be in Ilieir pcsfcssion From personal observations however I have not seen open vio ¬ lations of tlie law and am deeply interested in whatever evidence private detectives may have dis ¬ covered at the track trackW W C Fessendcn better known on the turf as Wally is among those named as having accepted wagers from the Burns detectives Fessenden once owned a horse which won at Jamaica several years ago at odds of 100 to 1 He never has been recog ¬ nized as a bookmaker He was at T line MasS this week and one of his friends at Belmont Park had received a telegram asking for enough money to Jmy a railroad ticket to this city Allan Pink erton who has charge of the Kilice arrangements at tlie local tracks called attention to the fact that of more than fifty former bookmakers who are in tlie habit of attending the races not oiiw had been implicated by the Burns men Piukerton assertod that several of the names mentioned by the Burns people never had been heard of at the tracks tracksThe The New York Sun says of the Shane case de ¬ cision cisionThe The Court of Appeals dismissed tlie Shane bel ¬ ting case recently allirmed by the Appellate Di ¬ vision of the Supreme Court in Brooklyn on the ground that the papers had been improperly drawn by tJic ifithorlties in Nassau county The appeal was made in Klialf of Justice of the Poaca Glmrll1 F Giltins instead
