Handicap. The total on the first machine showing six numbers different from the sum total above, namely, 235 instead of 2-tl, and the other machines showed simitar errors. This is most irregular, and is calculated to shake the macbin*. Again, I backed the horse *' Bound-to,' No. 12 on the race card, in the race referred to, and received a ticket No. 22.

THE TOTALIZATOR MACHINE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

THE TUTALIZA.TOK MACHINE. TO THE EDITOE. Sir— Tour reporter has fallen into an error in reference to the Goodwood Handicap. The machine did register £1 on D.O.D. in No. 4 window — the number remained up until all the numbers were taken down to prepare for the next race — the moment the race was over I 1 nnbaA {fannirh a fiAM.irl&aH At thct miu-.hinA f mm the stewards' stand, and remarked to Mr. Ha wker and others that there was only £1 on the winner. The whole f ueb in this matter has arisen from the fact that the small moveable gold numbers re presenting Kc*. 16, 17, 18, and 9 in Ho. i window fell down (probably jarred by the window when it closed.) As tbeee cumbers da not affect tne record kept by the machine, it is in correct to say the machine did not register correctly in this race. I am, &c, E. O. BAKES. KorialtB Chambers, Kay 9.
