Ryan, the get-rich-quick man, has been ruled off the metropolitan racetracks by the stewards of the Jockey Club, says the New York Sun of Sunday. The ruling was officially announced by Assistant Secretary Daingerfield at the Aqueduct track yesterday as follows: "At a meeting of the stewards of the Jockey Club held in the offices at the "Windsor Arcade, Saturday, October 31, the assistant secretary was instructed to write all associations racing -under the jurisdiction of the Jockey Club as follows: "Whereas John J. Ryan was ruled off the turf at Fort Erie, Canada, on Sept. 17, 1898, for the alleged ringing of the mare Caroline K. ; "Resolved, That the said John J. Ryan be declared ruled off, under Rule 162, part 6, of the rules of racing, until such time as he be reinstated by the authorities who ruled him iff." Ryan came east during the spring meeting of the Coney Island Jockey Club. It was not until the Saratoga meeting was in full blast that he began to be the talk of the turf. At one time he was loser to the extent of $70,000, it was said, but made good. "When he returned to Sheepshead Bay for the fall meeting he was reputed to be the backer of a book run in the name of George F. Considine. In one day he cleaned up in wagers $90,000, by playing Chuctanunda, Mc-Chesney and Irene Lindsey. On the following Monday he won $70,000 more, and the Jockey Club stewards began then to look into his case. Upon investigating his career it was found that he had been ruled off the Canadian turf by the officials of the Fort Erie track for alleged complicity in a ringing case, and also that a warrant had been issued there for his arrest. Ryan was asked to appear before the Jockey Club stewards during the Morris Park meeting, and readily complied with the request. He admitted that he had been ruled off at Fort Erie, but pleaded not guilty to the charge lodged against him. Further research developed the fact that Ryan had been warned away from the New Orleans track last winter and that in retaliation he had started the outlaw track at Newport, Ky., which was a failure. When the E. J. Arnold concern blew up in St. Louis there was a run on a similar concern conducted by Ryan. It was stated that he had taken in $1,000,000 on the proposition to pay 2 per cent, a week on the investment of creditors and that when the crash came a settlement on the basis of 15 cents on the dollar was made. Ryan, however, insisted that he paid dollar for dollar and had only $7,500 left when all claims had been adjusted. Only recently Ryan was mixed up in the Post Office scandal in the cases tried at Cincinnati, the get-rich-quick man testify-, ing that he had paid money for the use of the mails. The stewards have, all along believed that Ryan's influence was not beneficial to the turf, so that with the desired evidence in hand they resorted to the action generally looked for by horsemen. The stewards have, incidentally, lifted the ban placed over the horseman known as Carley B., ten years ago. His real name is J. "Woolf and he was ruled off because of the allegations that he "controlled" the jockey Josh Jones, who rode for Virginia Bradley in the days of Clifton and Gutten-burg. Carley B. has been a turf exile ever since, but recently friends interceded for him with the result that after a long punishment he is once again in good standing on the local tracks. Jockey Fuller cannot stand prosperity. The boy has been riding in superb form and has received no end of praise lately. But on Friday he disappeared and was among the missing yesterday. He was slated to ride Juvenal Maxim, King Pepper and Unmasked, all of which would have had a chance if Fuller had been in the saddle. The jockey has fallen from grace upon numerous occasions this season, but has never been reprimanded. Possibly a hint from the turf authorities might bring the boy up with a sharp turn. His behavior in an injustice to his employers and the racing public. It was not a compliment to E. R. Thomas and his partner, Alex. Shields, when the stewards ordered Buttons, the winner of the last race on Friday, to be subjected to an examination by a veterinary. The stewards suspected that stimulants had been used, but the verdict returned showed that the suspicion was groundless. It is not often that a horse belonging to a millionaire turfman is investigated on this line. James Dyer, who trained Elkwood, the winner of the Suburban in 18S8, and who is the most successful American trainer that has ever operated in Austria-Hungary, was a visitor at Aqueduct yesterday. He is here on a two weeks' visit. Another of Tony Aste's horses is dead. This time it is the filly Pristina, which succumbed yesterday to distemper. Father Bill Daly has purchased the two-year-old filly Ancestor. Starter Cassidy suspended Michaels and J. Jones yesterday for the rest of the Aqueduct meeting. Burns is improving in his riding these days. He had three mounts in the money yesterday, his performance on Dux Casta being the stellar performance of the afternoon. Attacking Vosburgh ATTACKING VOSBURGH. A novel occurrence marked the racing at Aqueduct last Monday, creating a complication that has been referred to the Jockey Club for a ruling and may be attended by unpleasant results. The affair is thus described in The Sun of Tuesday: "During the lunch hour in the clubhouse at Aqueduct yesterday, L. V. Bell, the "Wall Street broker, whose horses have been rather unsuccessful this year, made a verbal attack on W. S. Vosburgh. the official handicapper of the Jockey Club, which created a sensation among turfmen when they heard of it later. For some time past Mr. Bell has been finding fault with the weights allotted to his horses by Mr. Vosburgh, particularly in the cases of Baron Pepper and Colonel Bill. On Saturday Colonel Bill started in a race with 126 pounds on his back and was not only beaten, but also broke down so seriously that he had to be taken away from the track in a horse ambulance. Yesterday when Mr. Bell found that Colonel Bill had again received-126 pounds for the last race he completely lost his temper. He entered the clubhouse dining room, where J. H. Bradford, one of the Jockey Club stewards was sitting, and said: " 'This injustice, Mr. Bradford, has got to come to an end. It has come to a pretty pass when one man can ruin the chances of my horses.' "Mr. Bell proceeded with further remarks (Continued on second page.) p ATTACKING VOSBURGH. (Continued from first page.) of a personal nature regarding Mr. Vosburgh and then went out upon the balcony. In a moment Mr. Vosburgh came in to Mr. Bradford and said: " 'I have been assailed twice by this man and I demand the protection of the stewards. I do not understand why he should thus attack me, and patience has ceased to be a virtue.' "Mr. Bell, meanwhile, went into the grandstand, where he dictated the following statement for the newspapers: 'The public pays ' heavily to see races and should certainly be satisfied as to the handicapping. The racing ' -associations certainly make enough to satisfy . the public, owners and trainers in everything. Therefore they should be willing to appoint . and pay for a board of handicappers to in-' eure just weights and fair play to every man and, every horse. " "When an owner at the present time has a grievance he is unable to approach the bumdicapper, whereas he should have a proper board to go before with any complaint he has to make. I, personally, feel that no man with a large stable of horses, with considerable capital invested, has under the present system of handicapping the protection he is entitled to. Certainly no man, through personal dislikes, if he has them, should be allowed such power as the handicapper has. " 'If anybody will take the trouble to look over the last two races of Baron Pepper in which he met Caller, I would like an explanation why Baron Pepper on the second meeting took up eight pounds after his first complete defeat. " 'I also feel that the handicapping of Colonel Bill during this season would not have been the same under a just board of handicappers. where I could have lodged a statement to show what my grievance was. Prior to my buying Colonel Bill, for which I gave many thousands of dollars, he won many stakes with light weights. Since I have owned him top weight has been assigned to him in spite of the fact that his performances of this or last year have not warranted such an adjustment of weight. " 'Colonel Bill has now retired, possibly for ever, after 1 have tried in vain to race him honestly with the weights assigned to him. If one man is to continue in arbitrary control of my stable I shall retire from the turf and I can say that there are other owners of the same mind.' "Some time ago P. J. Dwyer expressed himself in favor of a board of handicappers and when asked about the matter yesterday reiterated his statement, with the explanation, however, that he was only one individual in the councils of turf government. When Mr. Vosburgh was informed by The Sun man of Mr. Bell's statement, he said: " 'I do not care to make any reply except to say that in fourteen years I have handicapped more horses than any man in this country and I have never been treated in such an abusive manner before. Mr. Bell lost his head completely and gave vent to a rambling tirade, which took me by surprise, for I had always been under the impression that he was a good sportsman. There is nothing left for me to do under the circumstances except to prefer charges against him with the Jockey Club stewards.' " 'Mr. Bell says that it has been impossible to approach you on the subject. Is that so?' asked the reporter. " 'He has never attempted to speak to me,' replied Mr. Vosburgh, with a s'mile, as he walked away. It was the opinion among turfmen that Mr. Bell, while possibly having just reasons for making a protest, adopted rather radical methods of expressing his feelings. There is a board of handicappers in England and it has been a success. Whether the system will be tried here or not remains to be seen." Aqueduct Form Chart AQUEDUCT FORM OHAR1 AQUEDUCT, L.

Blue and Orange fell away on the stretch turn, then came again with a rush right at the end. Counterpoise got away flatfooted and, being forced out of his position, was pocketed to the last quarter, where he finished like a cyclone and was running faster than the leaders at the end. Miladi Love, badly ridden and all over the track, came from a long way back in the last furlong and ran a great race for her. Princess Tulane was hemmed in and pocketed midway of the homestretch and, under punishment, swerved over to the inner rail and was gaining on the leaders in the closing strides.

Tribes Hill closely followed the fast pace set by Elsie L., going through on the inside when straightened for home and in a jiffy took a long and winning lead and came home alone. He was much the best and is one of the best horses in training here just now. Elsie L. forced the pace in an extremely fast run race for six furlongs and finished a good second and a long way in front of some good horses. Her improvement was sudden and she should give a good account of herself from now on, even among the best. Mabel Richardson got away poorly and was tiptoed from the start to keep up. She finished very fast, but the distance was too short and she could never get into serious contention. Mabon, at the weights, ran a good race in spite of soreness displayed in his warmup.

Morse, who officiated as presiding judge at Washington Park and Worth, was tendered a similar position by the Los Angeles officials to serve at their track this winter. The offer was made about three weeks ago, and negotiations were pending until a few days ago, when Mr. Morse was forced to decline the offer on account of the time being inopportune, and his absence would interfere with his business. R. Bradley had Rabunta returned to him yesterday by a jury sitting in Judge Walker's court. Bradley originally sold Rabunta to P. McGuire for a small sum, but when the horse began winning he sued for his recovery on the ground that McGuire, who was handling the horse for Bradley prior to the sale, had made misrepresentations to him regarding Rabunta's value. Boots & Hollenback's horses were shipped yesterday to San Francisco. L. S. Sire's horses were to be shipped on the special that left for New Orleans last Tuesday, but for some reason or other the order was countermanded, and the horses will be kept at Worth for some time. Sidney C. Love was turned over to P. Dunne by J. Arthur at the close of the Worth meeting and is at present quartered at Hawthorne. Important Stake Dates IMPORTANT STAKE DATES.

Page  For Illinois Farmers FOR ILLINOIS FARMERS. In a communication printed below a gentleman of vast experience as an owner and breeder of thoroughbreds, makes suggestions that might well be seriously considered by the farmers of this rich state. It costs no more to keep a thoroughbred mare than a mare of the commonest type, while a colt or .filly from a thoroughbred mare may sell for more than a season's crops from an average farm. In a dispersal sale, such as that of the Melbourne Stud this month, or in such sales as those soon .to take place at Lexington, such mares can readily be acquired with every prospect af their proving profitable investments. Chicago, 111., Oct. 29, 1903. Editor of Daily Racing Form: As I am aware that there are a few breeders of the thoroughbred horse in Illinois, and knowing that your valuable little paper has a wide circulation in other states, I hope you will grant me a small space in your paper that I can give my experience and advise to breeders as to how to treat their mares and how to raise the foals to bring the best results in the sale ring and on the turf. I have bred thoroughbred horses all my life almost (for over forty years) and only gave it up to come to Chicago to live with my son about three years ago, as I was alone in the world; and I must confess that, surrounded with all the luxuries and an elegant home, with every modern comfort here, I would rather be back on the old farm in Kentucky, where I could see the beautiful matrons grazing on the waving blue-grass and see the young racers as they run for dear life across the woods and meadows. , A great many people are imbued with the idea that to raise thoroughbreds successfully that the owner must have studied the science of breeding all his life, and that only those of ripe experience can succeed at the business. What a foolish idea! Whilst experience in this business, like in all others, certainly aids the breeder in knowing just what to do, there is nothing perplexing or intricate about the business, for it only needs care and attention, mixed, of course, with a little hard sense and industry. The broodmares should be allowed to run out during the winter and summer, and the larger the range all the better. Like the human race, they like a change in their surroundings and like new scenery. However, they must be stabled during all rainy or snowy weather, and on days and nights when the atmosphere is damp and cold winds are blowing. They don't dislike cold weather, provided they can find a place to keep off the cold winds. It is not even necessary to stable them during the bad weather, provided they have a suitable shed room to run under during such weather. Good grass will keep them fat the year around unless during bad weather, as spoken of above; but at such times they must be fed and fed amply on corn and oats and good mixed hay, and unless the grass is really good they must be fed at all times. Never allow them to get poor, and should they get in this condition by all means fatten them during warm weather by feeding both grain and hay. Salt them twice a week regularly, and a little salt mixed in their food helps them wonderfully and aids their digestion. A few weeks before the mare is due to foal have her stabled and brushed off once a day and fed on not less than ten pounds of good wheat bran, say one-half of this amount twice per day. There is danger in feeding the bran dry; so sprinkle it with a little water until it becomes moist. By carefully doing this the mare is in fine condition to foal and to raise her foal, for her milk supply from this cause will be fully doubled and a good start to a youngster is everything. After the foal comes, continue to feed the brans mixed with some oats, for, say, two months, or one month, anyway. Discontinue it only in the case that your grass is strictly first-class. A high English authority once said that one-half of the colt's value and speed went down his throat, and I heartily endorse that statement. I am a strong advocate of feeding and feeding well. When any friend recommends to you to feed fodder (that is, corn fodder hauled and thrown out during the winter) draw a pistol on him, unless cut up and shredded fine and fed with ground oats or corn it is no good, but fed in this way it is extra fine. Wean your foals promptly at five months' old, and if the foal is not doing well wean it sooner. The foal, after weaning, must be allowed to run out at least twelve hours out of every twenty-four, and the larger the range all the better. Don't confine in a small paddock. Colt foals should have a stall to themselves after weaning, but fillies can run in pairs until February 1 of their yearling form and be stalled together if large enough. Have the foal after weaning brushed and cleaned off thoroughly every evening before you put up for the night. There is as much in grooming a horse as there is in feeding, and by grooming the horse well every day they will need less feed to keep them in good condition. Don't allow them to get too fat, but there is not much danger in this. Have your stable and stall cleaned out thoroughly every day and haul the manure and old bedding away. Don't leave it in heaps around the stable. This brings sickness and disease. Have your stable and stalls whitewashed all over two or three j times each year and sprinkle crude carbolic acid (it doesn't cost much) and lime in every stall at least once a month. Follow this and you will never be troubled with distemper or other contagious diseases. Keep distemper away for it is hard to eradicate. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." When the foal first arrives and seems to strain to have an action, get some soapsuds and inject once or twice, and have the water" just as hot as the colt can stand without scalding him. This will soften the action and let it pass. Take two-thirds part of water and one-third of coaloil and with a sponge rub well into the colt's hair all over. This will kill lice and make his coat smooth. Select some day when the sun is shining and turn the colt out after sponging, or there is danger of his catching cold. Feed the dam in a low trough, so your foal can learn how to eat grain; but the oats or corn you use must be ground. After the first sixty days you can fence off a place where you can feed the colt and the mare cannot go under to eat up its food. Feed the youngster all he can eat three times a day on a variety of ground food. Never use any sort of hay for the youngster except sweet clover hay that has never been allowed to get wet. The more you handle the foal and the earlier the better it is for him. When allowed to grow wild there is great chance for injury when it comes to breaking him. Foals should be haltered and handled some (by leading and brushing off) from the time they are thirty days old. When the mare or foal show symptoms of sickness, don't attempt to doctor them yourself, but send immediately for a veterinary surgeon. You know more about farming than a doctor, but the doctor knows more about medicine than you do. Symptoms of colic and a locked bowel are very much the same. Tou might think you could cure a colt of the colic, when he really had the other complaint, and in this case it would mean a dead colt, for unless taken in time they cannot be saved. There is no economy in trying to save a doctor's bill. Now that your colt has been raised to be a yearling, don't be afraid to ask a high price for him. If you don't ,put a high value on your own colt certainly no one else will. This does not prevent you from taking less provided you choose to do it. Now, any breeder who will follow out strictly the above instructions will not only raise yearlings successfully, but they will race on the turf and race well.
