NO DISSENSION IN OHIO * Racing Associations Co-operating and Working in Harmony. « Prospects Exceedingly- Bright for Crcatest Racing In History of State — Horses Con-to Arrive at Benlah Park. ♦ COL.UMP.US, Ohio, April 13— For the first time since the inception of racing in Ohio five years ago the racing interests everywhere throughout the state are co-operating? with one another to make the coming season the greatest in the history of the sport. There will be no wrangling over a division of dates as heretofore, instead meetings will follow in the order of their arrangement, every track having agreed to the tentative schedule submitted last spring. Thistle Down and Coney Island thus far are doubtful starters, but it is said that managers of Thistle Down and Coney Island tracks, respectively, have not abandoned the idea of racing this season, reports to the contrary notwithstanding. Beulah Park will inaugurate the Ohio season Saturday, April 16. and will be followed by meetings at Akron, which will be of nineteen days duration ; Maple Heights, Brooklyn, Cranwood, and possibly Thistle Down. Messrs." Cattarinich and McGinty, owners of the Maple Heights track, will likely renew the 0,000 Ohio State Derby, which has featured the Maple Heights meetings for several years, and manager McMil-len may revive the Flintstone Handicap at Thistle Down Park if a meeting is held there. BUILDING 3IORE STALLS. Horses continue to arrive at Beulah Park for the spring meeting and yesterday witnessed the spectacle of housing horses as the new fifty-two-stall stable was being rushed to completion. Contractor Demorest reported that the huge barn would be completed to its last nail not later than Thursday, as it will only be necessary to finish off and hang the doors, which did not prevent the horsemen from housing their charges before the carpenters could move their tools. Hence, if abundant material is any criterion, conditions made to suit the horses in attendance will draw large fields in virtually all the races to be contested for during the nineteen days meeting. General Manager H. D. Shepard reported that the stables of Thomas Scott, formerly trainer for the T. H. Bernhardt stable ; 11. H. Jones and R. D. Carter, were the latest ar-- rivals from Xew Orleans. Trainers Scott and Carter are training public stables. W. Moore, who generally races where IK. Pacing Secretary V. R. Xorvell presides, both veterans hailing from the quaint city ot Xashville, Tenn., is expected to arrive from Bowie, Md., this morning. Moore reports that he will bring nine horses to Beulah Park for the spring meeting. Edward Pohlman, manager of the Northampton Park, track, Akron, will be here Sat- urday to interest horsemen contemplating : lacing at the spring meeting, which will get - under way the afternoon Beulah Park closes.
