QUEENSLAND SPORTING NOTES. BRISBANE, Monday. Trumpet Blowing. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 31 March 1887
QUEENSLAND SPORTING NOTES. (from our own correspondent.) Brisbane, Monday. Trnmpet Blowing. I attribute the large number of New South Wales entries for the Q.T.C. handi caps to the constant drawing attention to the fact in these columns that there was such a place as Queensland and such a body of turfites as the Q.T.C., and, furthermore, that the .said body gave good stakes, that it might be worth while the magnates of New South Wales having a smack at. There can be no doubt that the Referee has done much to bring the racing men of Queensland and New South Wales to gether. It circulates in nearly every town of importance here, and in Brisbane it is looked out for eagerly. If ' Early Bird ' will only keep on picking out Locliiels and Abners and an occasional ' block ' of a good fighting man rung in, the Referee will have a merry existence in this hades-like cbmato. Blow exhausted. The Turf Looking Up. This doesn't mean that an actual sod has turned itself up, or that blades of grass ...
AVERAGES OF THE ENGLISH ELEVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 31 March 1887
AVERAGES OF THE ENGLISH ELEVEN. We have been favoured by Mr. , Tames Lilywhite with the following list of averages for the wholo tour, which has been divided so as to determine the players' merits against duffers and best men of Australia. The list of averages is intact and finished, and it will be seen that the popular captain of the English team heads the batting all round, while Barnes comes next, but somewhat far behind his captain. It will also be noticed that Barnes has played the least number of matches on the sheet, and this may have influenced his final average. Bates has played the most innings of any, and comes out very near the top of the tree. Shrewsbury's total number of runs through the tour for 3G innings was 970, and this is the highest I aggregate.

A CHANGED MAN. Breakfast Creek, Brisbane, Q., Aug. 8, 1880. — I have been a sufferer for three years from liver diseases, troubled with severe pains in the back, giddiness, weakness of the knees, failing eyesight, and such complaints as attack mankind at my time of life, 50 years last October. I was compelled to take to my bed, the pains were so severe, was weak, low, nnd melancholy. While lying there, I saw in a local paper Dr. Hoinon's confession, whoso cose I found closely corresponded with mine. Seeing what Safe Cure had done for him, I made up my mind to give it a trial. After the first bottle I noticed slight benefit. I continued, and after using fivo bottles, left my bed a changed man, and was soon able to resume my work. Having used forty-seven bottles altogether, and for tho: good Warners Safe Cure has dono me, I never , fail to recommend it. — T. SOMERV ILLE .*

: ROWING NOTES, i I Charlie Matterson yesterday -wont up the Parramatta, where ho will put on the finishing strokes. Neilson has bee.i up the river for some time. On April 1 tho starts for the Davis Handicap will be declared. I believe Neil Matterson is scratch, and that tho nearest man to him has 12sec. start, and the limit is 45sec. In New Zealand it is said that Beach will pay tho colony a visit at Easter, and be at the Riverton Regatta. The Cham pion has friends in the Lake Wakatipu district, and will go to see them, and then tour the colony. At Maclean, on tho Clarenco River, there is to be a joint regatta and sports. I notice. that besides a couple of amateur events there is a maiden all-comers for £5, and a handioap for £.10. As an outcome of the regatta got up last week at North Shore, a match on Saturday last was rowed between Glover and Bar nett from Berry's Bay, round Goat Island and back, when Glover won rather easily. Next Saturday Charles Webb and F. Yates row a 3£ mil...

LATEST BETMG. The botting market,' cor iddring' tho close proximity of the Hawl. ibary meet ing, cannot be ? said to be so lively as might be expected. An attempt was made to introduce Honeydew into betting circles last night, but very little was taken about him. Offers of 7 to 1 were freely made, but backers preferred v point longer, and very little business resulted. Eight to 1 was taken about Tamarl ;lc, and 10 to 1 Tom Brown. Nolson went back a point for the Sydney Cup, and no .- stands at 5 to 1 offered, whilo Tom B.jwa received slight support at 8's.

The two emergencies are very promising colts, and if wanted will worthily behave themselves. The crew aro going to train from the Sydney sheds, and that club have placed at their disposal a clinker eielit. On Monday the crew went out for a pull with Mr. Myers steering. It is said that they did no*- shape well. Frtser was poor in tho catch, Seale, although a good oarsman, was too lato with his arms, and J. Kennedy was at fault iu the catch. The present selection is not the final one, and the committee can rsplace any man they think negligent in his work, so I would advise all the boys to be on their best behaviour. The Victorian crew have been almost decided on for cortain, and thoy will bo Ainsly, bow; Taylor, 2; Webster, 3; Gow die, 4 ; Malono, 5 ; Harrison, G ; Chomley, 7 ; Booth, stroke.

Mr. Teece remarked that if English cricketers stayed away from the colonies for a year or two, club cricket, which had suffered heavily,, might again raise its head. Mr. Gibso...

In the first instance, they played their first mutch a few hours after landing in Australia, and their last name was finished juHt a few hours prior to their time of departure from Australia. In the second place, as far as the finances are concerned it is just possible that in tlie event or their not being in th-; same position they might be worse, certainly not better. The managers of the team say, and I have 110 cause to doubt their statements, 'we will be indeed lucky if we come out square, for the wet weather handicapped us down in N.S.W., where we relied on the most returns. ' Again, they came out with an expressed wish to meet the strongest Australian team procurable, and [ for one maintain that on no occasion did they realise their ambi tion, and for divers rea...
THE JUNIOR CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 31 March 1887
TKE JUNIOR CUP. The Junior Cup competitions are now drawing towards the final matches, and, as a natural consequence, a deal of interest is centred in all the matches thatarebeing played out at present. The most impor tant one is, perhaps, that between the Maryleliones and Uedfern Cambridge for the Metropolitan Cup, and a match between two such clubs to a finish, oven were it not for the Cup, would no a great attraction in itself. On Saturday after noon a great number of people witnessed the play, but at present the Marylebones have much the best of the game. They ran up the respectable total of V22 in their second innings, and as the Cambridge- wero 40 short on the first innings, this left them 172 runs to get to win. At call of time they had four wickets down for but 1+ runs, a miserable average. The Maryle bones are to be complimented on their batting display, as almost every batsman contributed to the score. However, thoy have, so far, had extraordinary luck, as several easy cha...
