DUKE OF WESTMINSTER OJS BETTING. | On Saturday the Duke of Westminster laid the foundation-stones of three covered racing-stands on Chester Roodee. His Grace, m the course of his speech, referred to the vastly improved conduct of the crowds since the present company was formed, and said that the Prince of Wales was much struck with the great order ob- served when he was there in May. He hoped his Royal Highness would come again. He only wished there could be a little less betting. As far as he was concerned, he had plenty of excitement without betting, having horses to run, and occasion- ally winning a race. He thought there was no great harm in betting itself-no great harm in the fact that money should pass from one to another, but the objectionable feature was that young men, and sometimes, he feared, young women, too, would bet when they had not the means to pay for what they I might, unfortunately, lose. It was there where the evil came in. ■
