February 12, 1898] Â©tj* gveetiev axw gpoxtsman. 103 When many of the Klondikers return loaded with gold dust, about the first things they will be purchasing will be fine trotting stock, and many a good one will be sold in this city in May and June. Stallion Owners, Attention! The season for breeding mares generally commences this time of the year, and owners of good ones who read the account of sales of horses of all kinds are carefully scanning the turf journals in order to see what sires are advertised. They have no other means of knowing any- thing about these stallions. The present demand in thoroughbred circles for the services of thoroughbred stallions is unprecedented in the history of these "Children of the Winds," and sev- eral stallion owners have concluded to insert advertise- ments in tbis journal next week. The light harness horse industry has a brighter out- look than at any time in its history. Many wealthy men who bought horses at fabulous prices because they were bred well, have retired from the business because they knew little or nothing about it, and had no time to devote to the breeding problem; and,as they saw they had bought on a rising market and had come to the con- clusion they had "got in wrong," they hold dispersal sales and drew out of the business the very easiest and quickest way possible. A few of these gentlemen, how- ever, had become infatuated with the business and are determined to remain in it. They have weeded out their bands of mares and retained those which they considered worthy of producing horses that would sell. These men have also outgrown their notions (which almost ap- proached the bigotry line) about breeding to their own stallions. They are willing to breed to those owned by their neighbors and are anxious to see if their judgment in this great study is correct. Consequently, through their influence, many "small" breeders, or what may be more correctly called "select" breeders, have been greatly encouraged. Many a valuable sire will prove a "Klondike" for these men, for very choice mares will be bred and the produce trained by men of wealth who have given the breeding problem due consideration. There will be a class of horses sold or destroyed here- after which may accidently appear even on the largest as well as the smallest stock farms. Heretofore, they have been retained on account of their pedigrees. This class has neither speed, conformation nor the dispositions to be worth raising. The work of the ecraseur cut out of ex- istence thousands of these representative nondescripts or scrubs and its good work will continue undiminished. Owners of stallions need have no cause for doubting the worth of any mare booked to their horses. The only thing they must do is to advertise their horses in the Beeeder and Sportsman at once. The industry is in a better condition that ever, and the man who will suc- ceed in makiag money in it is the one who breeds judi- ciously and holds on to his colts and fillies for a year or two longer. The eastern turf journals all speak in the most hopeful terms, and so does every horseman who has kept a close watch on the supply and demand in trotting-horse ranks. Public Oonfldenoe and Prlvat9 SnapB. It will not do for the two jockey clubs to say that their inability to shut off the track news upon which the down-town pool-rooms exist, grows out of some contract they may have made with the telegraph companies be- cause the law does not countenance the enforcement of contracts which are against public policy. If horse racing is to continue as one of the attractive sports of California, due consideration must be given to the two elements which make it possible. The first of these is the public, the next is the breeder. Side shows and "snaps" may be a good thing in their place, but it must be borne in mind that their place is behind, and not in front, of the public. The dsllar that comes from the sale of privileges is not the dollar that makes the "mare go" at the race track, any more than it is at the theater or any other place which is dependent upon public patronage. The "fakir’s" dollar is the last to enter the track and the first to leave it when public con- fidence is shaken. This is the history of all race tracks. California will prove no exception to the rule. The general interest which is taken in racing in this State must not be mistaken for that of licensed de- bauchery. There is a difference between racing and robbery, one takes place at the race tracksâthe other at the down-town pool-rooms. The rains of the past week have insured an excellent hay crop. Feed of all kinds is just springing out of the ground. One inch of rain in February is worth four in December, and the best years, speaking from an agri- cultural standpoint, were those which were noted for late rains. The year 1898 will be the best ever known in the history of California. H. Burke is not connected with the Breeder and Sportsman in any capacity and is not authorized to transact any business for this paper. The speed programme for the Summer meeting of the P. 0. T. H. B. Association will be acted upon by the Board of Oirectoas before March 1st. As outlined, it is the most unique, and we believe, will prove to be the most popular ever offered. Entries to the Highland Park Stake events will close February 21st. Bead the advertisement in our business columns. (Continued from page 99.) the Jockey Clubs are determined to put a stop to these inde- fensible institutions, so far as that can be accomplished by the governors of racing, the battle can be fought under far better generalship. There is little doubt that should the P. C- J. C. and the C. J . C request the clubs of the East to for- bear allowing the Telegraph Co. to transmit intelligence to Sausalito the request would be granted though it does eeem that good sense would mark such a coarse without solicita- tion. The people who avail themselves of the opportunity to make money are not so blamable as the great company which has done iÂ»s best in the past to render nugatory the ac- tion of the clubs when attempts were made to stop telegra- phic communications. It may be that like efforts will be rendered abortive by the same tactics, still I would like to see it tried again. * * * A Good Example,âIn a conversation with one of the most succesesul trainer and driver of harness racers in Cali- fornia, a few days ago, the talk drifted into various channels. Enquiries about a gentleman who resides in the Southern part of the State brought fervent encomiums among other praises, that the relator had driven his horses for several years, and always with the same instructions, "win every heat you can." Commenting on that charge Mr. Dâ said, " how much better for everyone engaged in the business if every owner followed that example. As" in the now cele- brated Preston case there are, undoubtedly, many instances when a driver is commanded to forego winning hsats, when bis own judgment, his own idet of the proper course to pursue, are directly contrary. Very many drivers are forced to surreuder their right to follow plans that their judgment and inclinations mark, and were rule 48 made to cover such cases as .that of Preston, it would be well received by drivers as well as attendance at the races.

In speaking of the down-town pool-room evil the " Post" says: " The pool-room swindle is merrily at work debauch- ing the youth of the city. Under the existing condition of affairs any one can do a bookmaking business who can find dupes to part with their money. Not only gamblers, but cigar dealers, shop foremen and even peddlers and pawn- brokers are making books on the races. It requires no stock in trade beyond an elastic conscience, a pencil, a Bheet o^ paper and a few fools to work on. The city gets no revenue from the business, for the license law is evaded, and thote who patronize the swindler gets no returns, for the odds are juggled until it is impossible to win. The old pool rooms in the tenderloin are running openly and any one who has any money to throw away is given every opportunity. All that is necessary is for him to give it to the bookmaker, and as a matter of form name a horse. Nothing is said of odds, and if the better happens to pick a winner he gets just what the bookmaker chooses to give him and no more. There is nothing to prevent the bookmaker keeping all, for there is no law to protect the gambler. The law against the infamous swindle has been sustained by the courts and it is the duty of the police to arrest every violator. The police cannot and should not control the courlB. So long as the police do their duty it is none of their business what the courts do. The responsibility for any miscarriage of justice will then rest solely on the courts. If no arrests are made the police will be held responsible." [The course adopted by the "Post" in this matter is a most commendable one, but it carries with it one element of weak- ness, and that is that the Post.Jassisted by the other evening papers, through their noon-day editions, furnish the pool- rooms a very valuable part of the information upon which they operate. Without this information, for which the racing clubs are responsible, there would be no down-town pool rooms. The police may not have been as aggressive in the matter as they should be, but the blame does not rest with them alone] HOOF-BEATS. The Chronicle this morning says: "It is expected that an order will soon be issued to prohibit the sending out of scratches, jockeys, etc., from the tracks. This contemplated act has been made necessary on account of the growth of poolrooms and handbooks down town." It is about time ihe "live daily" published this. The evening papers which claim to publish news hours ahead of it have managed to hypno- tize the jockey clubs and keep them in that condition while they did all in their power to encourage the opening of down town pool rooms, where they could sell their papers, which contained the only information which could keepthem alive. The morning dailies, with the exception of the "Call," have been silent as the tomb on this question. They publish form charts, track gossip, etc., and criticize the officials at the race tracks, but do not dare say one word against down town pool rooms, which will sooner or later destroy one of the greatest and best industries in California. The Western Uaion Telegraph Company is an all-powerful monoply. and like a mighty octopus, it has squeezed the life ont of ever jockey clnb and race track in the ten leading States of Ame ica. California will be the next to feel its;deadly influenc if it has not already come under its shadow. The Breeder and Sportsman is loosing out for the best interests of the jockey clubs in California and in its endeavors to call the attention of these organizations to the fate which is in store for them if they continue to allow tbe telegraph companies to crush them out of existence as it has in all the other leading States, it arouses the indigna- tion of a few who are interested in the existence of these pool-rooms we cannot help it, and, what is more, we do not care. For fifteen years we have labored to see racing placed where it is in California but not to see poo)-rooms created which will kill this great sport. The courts and the police are powerless to crush them out of existence and if the jockey clubs do not heed our warning and stop all informa- tion from leaving the track prior to the close of the races Ingleside will be closed next year and State laws will be passed to close Emeryville. It is not pleasant to remind onr best friends of this, but it is tbe truth, and they know it We urge them by all the lessons of the past to try and save themselves,their property,and tbe great industry while they can. One word to the telegraph company will do it. -mTsTsTsTsTi^^^
