The st ten shots ate the chosen IIP1-II1LS The pari-mutuel betting machines didn't get a fair test at tie fair races There, were no "place" or "show" ma chines working, and much that maSos ihe wagering game interesting was acking. There was not enough betting tal ent in sight to .warrant the expense of operating any more machines than the two that were in .use, and as it the machines. didn't do much more business than.-what would clear expenses. _ There was a decided lack of enthus asm this year in the betting ring compared with other years, and not a "Give us hack :ew were heard to :he boots." _ The boofes toave bean a frost as op- erated in Lethbridge, almost without exception. About-the only fair shake that was ever given .the betting tal ent here took, place last when 'ack Wales local operat- ed what a square-deal lystein of "books." The .bookmakers ffho have been here, as a rule, have not only run the but to all appearances toave 'rtnv the races and lied them to suit themselves. It has taen found impossible in Am erica to keep races clean and clear rom .knavery in ttie largest and best conducted tracks on the continent, with the bookmaking system of bet- ting in operation, and it possible7 to keep the races he fair circuit anywhere with the The racing game at one time flour- shed all over America.' Then the 'books" were discovered .in control unclean hands, and the taw stepr ped in, and track after track was losed to protect the gullible public rom the vultures, the "booksi" Now -we see a great revival of the acing game. The old tracks are op- ining up again.. The pari-miituels have solved the problem of a square deal lor the boys who play the game, that is the reason for the revival. 'tis machines are not inclined to irookedness. The system doesn't end that way. Prominent race-horse men and bookmakers argue that the pari-mut- uels are the only thing, and they ought to be good enough for Lethbridge.
