SETTLE WITH GOVERNMENT Ontario Jockey Club Makes Satisfactory Agreement Over Disputed Betting Tax. TORONTO, Ont., September 14. As a result of court proceedings at Osgoode Hall here this morning a settlement was reached in regard to the dispute over the sum of 18,290, the amount of the five per cent betting taken on the mutuel operations on the first seven days of the spring meeting of the Ontario Jockey Club. Since May last the money has been in the custody of the court and the Ontario government had notified the Ontario Jockey Club that unless tho sum was paid to the provincial treasurer they would take steps to prevent the autumn meeting at the Jockey Club being held. Today it -was agreed by all parties that the money should be paid out of court to tho government and that the Ontario Jockey Club should withdraw its action to test the validity of the act. There will as a consequence be no interference with the Ontario Jockey Club meeting, which will begin at Woodbine next Wednesday, according to schedule. Tho costs of the action will be paid out of the money in court.
