has not been able to dose negotiations because the ride Company employed to clear the titleand guarantee it has found that a part of the land bought has been dedicated to public uses and therefore there may be sow trouble in closing the roadways at least there will be a delay of few months In the meantime the Board has asked the owners of Douglas Park to lease them the grounds for holding this years Fair with the understanding that as soon asthe title is cleared the property will be taken over by the State Board This Mr Cella has declined to do it is understood although there is a probability of the matter being adjusted within the next day or two The Stat Board is detu mined th titwill not take the property until the titleis perfect This may mean that the Fair this year will
