THE ABUSE OF SPRINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 March 1887

THE ABUSE OF SPRINTING; TUT ' tflMBLEFOOT.'] Hy tho dishonesty of several runners and others connected with them, sprinting received a blow last night at the Carrington Athletic Grounds, that it may perhaps be years before it recovers itself. There is no more fatal mistake in catering for a British audience than to abuse their confidence, and the public arc quick to take oncnoe and slow to forgot. In disqualifying Smith and Bourke tbo committee acted I wisely, but they punished hoth the public as well as the delinquents in allowing the book makers to keep all money obtained over the dishonourable event. In the second instance, the committee, by ordering all bets to be returned, relieved tho public, but as no punishment was meted out td Willoughby who was as guilty as Stubbins, their justice was as incomplete as m the first instance. 1 havo always held that when a runner is disqualified in a heat all bets should bo declared off, and I am sure this is the only I way to check the prese...

CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 March 1887

[?] (By *' Not Oirr.') Tlio ni03t singular incident in the late great match Smokers v. Non-Smokers was tho small number of sundries. It is posi tively amusing to read tlio Press criticisms of Percy Lewis' wicket-keeping. All the Melbourne wisc-acres laud liim to the sky, ?while a glance at the scores will convince the most casual observer that the wicket keeper conld not have taken more than one ball in a hundred from the bowlers. When tho sundries account is exceptionally In rge the wickets are invariably bad or untrue, aim li i l u.ui, tnereiore, cuts capers mat 11 not only escapes the batsmen, but evades the wicketkeep. In nil cases of large scores the sundries have been as notably Small. A Spell of Giant Hitting seems to have surrounded the cricketers in Victoria during last week. At Sand hurst, Maurice Read's score of 140, con tained no less than ' ten fivers ' (three of which were hit in succession), and eleven fourers ; while, during the match, tho following big hits were mad...
