' Professor George S. Innla, who ' waa
in Portland tela summer, haa written a
letter 'to The Journal. In which be re
fere to the selling of pools at state
fairs. 'Professor Innls lives within half
a mile of the Minnesota fair grounds at
Hamlfne. and has been Informed of the
situation there for the past $0 years.
. "I want to say something regarding
poolselllng.' . said Professor Innla. 1
notice you have had considerable ex
citement In Portland over the subject,
and, while I wish not to be intrusive in
the affairs of another commonwealth,
perhapa the' relation of . our experience
may be valuable at this time.
"We have - proved , the truth
of our ". contention - of - yeara pre
vious io UK,' : whenTthe ' lflnne
aota legiatature prohibited poolselllifg,
that the state fain' would be' more pros
perous without: than with the 'selling
of pools. -1 hand you a statement com
piled from the records of the state fair
here since 118. which if read carefully
will at least aaaiat one in - forming
opinions that poolselllng at state fain
Is unprofitable to the fair management"
The , statement to which Professor
Innls refers aaya: ..-,
: "Receipts under -no poolselllng have
been vaatly larger than under the former
regime. Up to 1884, when tbe law pro
hibiting the selling of pools was adopt
ed, the expenses were greater than the
revenues, and the legislature each year
appropriated money to pay for the de
ficit, in 18)6 the receipts exceeded the
expenses, -and the -same haa been true
every year since. Laat year tha reve
nues were $148,000 and tha expenditures
tlla.000 -la l0-the- receipts were
$180,400 and the expensea $107,800.
"There were four times aa many paid
admissions ia 104 as in 184. 'The In
crease waa largely from' the farmers.
With the farm papers and other leading
Journals opposed to the fair, as tbey
will be if gambling ia reintroduced on
the grounds st sny time, the fjdr will
be ruined again. ; -: - 1 - ?
"Another pool bill Is before the legis
lature permitting. the selling-of pools
during the atate fair " and for $0 days
each year on the grounds, 8uch a suc
cessful fair offers . too rich a, harvest
for the gamblers to Jet it alone. .
"Several national organisations of
stockmen' have become . greatly inter
ested in our state fair and offer large
premiums for display of. ateck. The
leading stock Journala now give the fair
association their hearty support, all of
which . must -be given up it we return
to gambling. . ;,-:., . .:
The selling of spools -ea 'races was
attended with' ao. many evil eonse-
dnences that the common eounella of
St. Paul. and Minneapolis forbade it by
-"The ' running races on the fair
grounds 'are in no way for the benefit
jfhaJiorseralere.trslcalers of this
state, but solely for tha benefit of the
sporting men In the United States. They
havev been ' driven from, atate fair
grounds with one or two exceptions as
deleterious to morals, finance and to the
honeat breeding and tracing ef horses.
They offer nothing .to the harneas-horse
men but , dlabonor ' to their honorable
calling. .. . ' -
- "The July -races from 1$0 to 184
were ao scandalous, with their " gam
bling, liquor selling and other wiles that
the state legislature forbade tbe sell
ing of pools almost unanimously.
-"The anti-pool law of 188 completely
sioppeo mat. son or. gambllna- In this
atate, rid the fair ' grounda of a lot of
gamoiera, liquor sellers and bad woman.
