STOP FIGHTING NEW ORLEANS TRACK. Judge 0Donncll So Advices Miss Gordon Since She Is a Stockholder. New Orleans. La., May 17.— "It is a great pity. Miss .onion, that a woman of your talent anil energy is given to wasting the gifts which are yours on n cause so unworthy. Do you ever stop to think that you are doing yourself a great injustice, and that you are not treating the people and the courts fair, when you go to the rescue of a man who has hecn proven so utterly unworthy? The nation n -eds women like you right now. The Red Cross, the home economy, home guarding and big public works would be better befitting you than the Ill-directed work you are now attempting."
