LEAVES WORD OF WARNING Before departing for Toledo, where he will have charge of the meeting that began there Tuesday, judge Murphy said: "Some months ago I made the statement that if we were ever to have racing in the great cities of Chicago and St. Louis someone would have to make the fight. The fight is not Avon here, but Ave are on our A-ay. If every promoter in the country Avill not croAvd in on us Avith schemes to revive dead and dismantled properties or erect neAV merry-go-rounds I think I can promise that Chicago Avill be permanently restored to racing. I am also sanguine of the St. Louis situation. There is a real organization there ready to move. The Chamber of Commerce Wants a live stock and agricultural exposition. I have convinced them that it cannot be financed or maintained without racing. If I can find some spare time I am sure I can put St. Louis over. With Chicago and St. Louis permanently established Ave Avill be ready for the proposed new Avestern goAerninjr body."
