The queathm of the purchase of Maddeni pair of eligibles— Milkman ami Defence — was discussed and. after Karrick hud Inspected them, the colts were- cantered for his benefit. While he- was much imprcss-d by their appearance, .Mr. Karrick would not commit nimm If to any definite statement regarding the parens -of the; colts, or the price- asked by their owner. It is understood he- will make a favorable report to Mr. Iti-clle. upon his return e-ast. Karrick was even more favorably inipre- s--d with the- looks of tin- four-year old Hendrie, also in the Madden barn. He expressed a de-sire- to purchase him. but the- price aske-el by Mr. Mailden. it was said, was altogether too high to pel mil of further negotiations. Madden is reported to nave re fus.-el a big offer for this colt at Saratoga last summer. He- is n chestnut colt, by Star Shoot — •range and Bine, nnd was bred by Clay Brothers. Madden bought him as a yearling and values him highly. Mr. Karrick already has one Darby candidate that he is training feu- II. K. Knapp, a member of In- Joe ke-y Club.

Mr. Karrick toe.k occasion to compliment local trainers tiver the- favorable conditions at both local eeuenea.
