'THE REFEREE' AND THE SPORTING WORLD. I desire to express my sincere and hearty thanks to the sporting world for the generous support . they have extended to the Refkukk, which has achieved an immediate success much beyond all precedent, and greatly in excess of my own expectations. I cannot sufficiently express, on my own behalf and on that of my col leagues, our grateful sense of tho kindness we have received from the Australian Press as well as from tho public, and of the encouragement which has been afforded us from all sides. It will be our constant en deavour so to improve and oxtend the Referee as to make it a complete and reliable record of the pastimes of the people, and in this way to repay tho liberal patronage bestowed upon us. It will be evident to all whom I address that a paper like the Referee, ?which aims to be a faithful chronicle of public amusements and national sports, must record failures as well as successes, and must now and then fearlessly point out where mi...
