SLAVEN AND COSTELLO TOE FINISH. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
SLAVES' AND COSTELLO TO A FINISH. At one time it looked ns though Costello and Mitchell, the American boxers, would' be allowed to eome and go without being entertained by any of their Australian cousins in the fistic circle ; but owing to repeated challenges from them Mitchell succeeded in getting on a match with Murphy, who he vanquished in five rounds. Tne Dan once set rolling, it was rumoured that Mulholland would step into the breach . but owing to his engagement with Powell, of Queensland, negotiations were left pending until that contest was brought to a climax. Jack Hall, however, was the next to put in his claim for honours, and a match was arranged between him and Mitchell for .£100 aside and the middle weight championship, which takes place at Foley's on Tuesday evening next, when a large number of admirers of boxing are sure to be present. Up to the present, however, Martin Costello could not succeed in inducing anyone his weight to try con clusions with him, and just ns...
CARRINGTON THIRD ELECTRIC LIGHT HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
CARRINGTON THIRD ELEC TRIC LIGHT HANDICAP. I cannot say that Mr. Frank Wilkinson has been so successful in his latest allotment of starts as in the former handicaps. In tho first place I would like to know what Millipran has done to got only 3yds. from Samuels, the scratch man, and it is unfair to ask him to give Combo a start of a yard. Ashwortli, of Bathnrst, on 2-liyds.. is harshly treated, and so is Dick Stevens on 25yds. He is an old man now, and should not bo asked to give Geddes 2.vds., especially when tho latter was talking of running him a match level. In a heat at Botany the other day Geddes ran a yard under evon, Now Stovens of recent years has novor done anything liko this. Myors lias never been seen to sprint in Australia, and as he has an amateur rocord of lOsec. for tho 100yds., it is absurd to givo him right away 5yds. from Samuels. When Myors went to England in 1832 ho beat all tlio amateurs at sprinting and also T. M. Malone, and I see no reason why he should not b...

AMERICAN NEWS. WALLACE ROSS GIVES HIS OPINION OF BEACH. The Decay of Sport. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
? AMERICAN NEWS. WALLACE ROSS GIVES HIS OPINION OP BEACH. The Decay of Sport. According to promise I write you, but not as early as I intended. Witli reference to Johnston's 9 4-5sec. record for 100yds., Smith, as you will see in a paper I mailed you lately, did liim up splendidly, and I'd stake my life against 10 cents, that your Australian sprinters would give him 5 yds. and. a beatiny in 100yds. Wallace Ross is after returning from England. Speaking of Malone anil Hutchens' match he said tho prevailing opinion was that Malone, if fit and welf, would secure a victory over tlie phenome non — at least ' Pendragon,' in the Referee, the greatest of English sporting authorities, told Ross so, and is perfectly confident him self of such being the result. By the way, all the papers had it here that Maloso was badly hurt, and was com pelled to retire from the track altogether. This I hope to be only an idle rumour, as we anticipate a visit from the IrishAns tralian, which I suppose there ...
ROMANY, THE STOLEN CHILD. A THRILLING ROMANCE OF GIPSY LIFE. CHAPTER 1. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
ROMANY, THE STOLEN CHILD. A THRILLING- ROMANCE OP GIPSY LIFE. CHAPTER I. A gipsy oneampmcnt on the classic banks of tho Harlem river. Gipsies in more or less striking attitudes are lying about a fire ; and when it comes to lying about a fire a gipsy can beat a veteran volunteer fireman. -L no low, cdcsccndincr sun that lends a frigid glow to the wintry landscape, lights up tho picturesque garb of these mystic children of the hedges and tho highway. How strikingly unique tho garb of yon gipsy chief, with a red cambric window curtain knotted carelessly about his swarthy throat, and a deep blue patch on tho seat of his nankeen breeches. Near by a dark-eyed gipsy woman is telling tho fortnno of a young man fi'om Hoboken. His fortnne consists of sevanty-five cents in change, which her deft fingers quickly tell and transfer to lior pocket in the twink ling of an eye. The chief addresses a dusky young follow leaning carelessly ngainst tho old-fashioned one-horse pung in which the band is a...
WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
WISE AND OTHERWISE. A correspondent wants to know if asses batlio in ponds assinorum? A dude can never leai.i to stand on his head, because he has no head t - stand on. A wife rightly bred makes a good loaf — but a girl bred to lonf will not make a good wife. , Tho chick now through tho oggslioll breaks, AV nicli many weeks has hid it ; Cries, as it3 weak existence wakes, 'My littlo hatch it did it.' The English artist considers his art sweet when he is painting the portrait of his sweet 'ait. Why women kiss oa^h other is And undetermined quostioj, Unless tho d-iriiii'js wonld by this Give man a sweet suggestion. The world may owe us a living, but the most of us have to scratch around pretty lively to get it. The clipper with a slirowd disguise Stoals wit, as it appears ; 'Slieor nonsensothis,' tho reader cries. Yea — nonsonso of tho shears. A loafer may be said to flflit a duel with time ; for whenever he kills an hour he requires sixty seconds. You may not writo liko Shakespeare, ...

THE NEW ZEALAND TOTALISATOR CONFERENCE. , THE REPORT TO THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
THE NEW ZEALAND TOTALI SATOR CONFERENCE. , rHE REPOxtT TO THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. [by our OWN COIlIlEBrONDENT.] J.11U resolutions adopted by the confer ence of the delegates of the Metropolitan Racing Clubs throughout New Zealand turn out to be almost precisely similar, as I Btatcd in my last letter. Tliey have now been published in a letter to the Colonial Secretary. After pointing out tho advan tages derived from horseracing in the way of breeding horses and the amount of money brought into the country hv tho sales of thoroughbreds, the letter states ' that there can be no inorc equitable mod© of raising a revenue for the purpose of racing than the totalisator, as the whole of the money derived therefrom comes directly either from the horse-owners or those who are interested in racing ; and if the machine be used under careful super vision, the money so received, except a, small percentage for working expenses, is returned to the horse-owners in prize money, with tho effect of enc...

PROFESSION BICYCLING. [?] [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
PROFESSIONAL BICYCLING. [TO T'S E9. .01 O. T-IE r.E?EnEE.] Sir, — Your paper being m demand by the majority of the sporting public, I take the libei iy of asking you to devote a par. for the benefit of the professional bicy clists ofll.S.W. The National Cyclists' Union have recently set the example of en couraging- professional racing, and have publicly stat d tlioir intention of inseiting at least one pi-ofe.-.sional event iu all nice - meetings which come under their pwfcron a-je ; in \ lew of which it is ,a*ifely only reasonable to expect the '/Si. W. Cyclists' Union to do likejrnse. If the N.S.W. Cyclists' Jr-r:6n will follow the example of the E^.;;iish Union it will only remain to sceiy/hether tbe various clubs will volun taifly place a professional event on their prcwji-amuies for the ensuing season. If thoy do so they may depend upon seeing some first-elas3 racing, and they will be displaying a spirit of fair play which it is only 'reasonable to expect among true amateurs. T...
THE DISCOURTESY OF THE VICTORIAN CYCLIST UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 7 April 1887
THE DISCOURTESY OF THE VICTORIAN CYCLIST UNION. | The opposition which MesarS. Bennett and Dvvyer havo been met with OU 6Vil'y occasion has now become a very general topic of conversation, so much so that the hon. secretary of the N.S.W. Union was requested to i\rite for the reasons why Bennett and Dwyer were made 'pro-c fessionals.' Mr. . Edwards did ? so, and received a reply to the effect that they 'the V.C.U. executive) would not give the required information, as Dwyer's caso was now before the court. What could Dwyor's action have A.n *Mwerjn~ the queries of a sister union, especially as the rider in question was, at the time of riding, a member of the latter body. Whatever answers they must give could not surely prejudice their defence in the court of law, or else they stand self condemned at once; and if thoy havo private reasons which they do not care to make public during the trial, are they any the better off for suppressing them in dis tinct opposition i - tne solicitatio...
