WAR RELIEF GASE RULINGS Owner, Trainer and Horses Suspended Pending Further Investigation. CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 29. The stewards at Maple Heights today announced that Sanford Skinner, trainer MarkTucker and the horses Dolman and War Relief have been suspended from the turf pending further investigation into the entry of War Relief in tho second race here on Thursday. It develops that George Richings, guiding spirit in the Richings-Hedrick ringing confederacy, was in the city the day before Skinners horses reached the track. The filly War Relief was here and Tuesday after the races worked three-quarters in 1 :15 with jockey Chalmers up. According to tho records in the Jockey Club office .it New York War Relief is a brown filly with a star and snip, right fore pastern white half to ankle in front to ankle behind. A description was taken by paddock judge E. Cottrell and Dr. Shafcr in the stall Thursday of the filly alleged to be War Relief as follows: "Light brown or dark bay filly with brown dapples, large star and small stripe extending below eyes. Her eyes show white when rolled." Competent witnesses declare War Relief has an irregular snip extending to the hp. Cottrell and Dr. Shafer declare the filly in the stall had no snip. Last fall at Kenilworth Park, Windsor, Richings turned a filly over to Peter Sheridan to run for the filly Furious, which he had bought from J. A. Coburn. This may be the same filly. Dolman, which ran Thursday, is straight. He is a bay gelding. The association has put tracers on the two horses. Nothing has been soon or heard from S. Skinner since the investigation commenced.
