BOWIE MAY RACE FIFTEEN DAYS Restraining Order Safeties tho Present Meeting v Until December 1. BALTIMORE, Md., November-17. There will be no interference with, the Bowie meeting despite the adverse decision of the Court of Appeals some time ago. It seems that on Friday last Sheriff We.sley Reall and States Attorney S. Marvin Peach were served with an order from Chief Judge John P. Uriscoe of the Seventh Judicial ,Cjrcuit, signed by Associate Justice B Harris "Camalier, at Upper Marlboro, restraining the officers from interfering in any manner with the Bowie, race meeting. The order is made returnable tlie first Monday in December. Early last week M. Hampton Magruder, president of the association, notified States Attorney Peach of an opinion he had from his attorneys that the race meeting was legal, and asked Peach what he intended to do. The prosecuting attorney retorted, it is said, by declaring thdt he proposed to make every effort in his power to prevent the racing. He further stated that, in his judgment, it was neither fair nor decent to undertake the meeting iu view of the decision of Judge Boyd of the Maryland Court of Appeals. It is understood that the associations lawyer relies upon tlie act of 1802,- applicable to Montgomery and Prince George Counties, which allows racing for fifteen day;! in any year within the grounds of agricultural fair associations. The order addressed to tlie sheriff and states attorney enjoins them or their agents or deputies from interfering in any manner with tlie JSowie race meeting for tlie next fifteen days, beginning November ,14 and ending December 1, Sundays excluded. and- the order pro-vents these officers from interfering with the making of bets on the results of the races.
