Spokane, i Wash., Oct. ; 28.--In a wrlt
taM confession made and signed before
rtficlals of the Coeur d'Alene Racing
association last night," Jockey Clifford
. Gilbert, who waa ruled off the turf
Wednesday, following; a threatened riot
over a race at the Alan, Idaho,-track,
. - accuaed Eugene Crump of offering him
$1600 for pulling Enfield, tba dav'a fa

Crump la associated with Powell, Par

: mainder or the meet, ending today. Fol
lowing Is the confession.
'I,. Clifford Gilbert, of m'y own free
will, hereby make the following state

of October: .
