Auck land, of Pine Ridge, and Mr. J. Alli son, of Coornoo Cooxnoo. No doubt these gentlemen will lease their horses. It is probable-t-hat the deci sionJof the Governor-General to re frain from attending race meetings while the war continues has been a prime factor in influencing these north-western owners to take the step they have. From indications it would appear that the big racing, clubs of the capitals intend to curtail their meetings cousiderablv.
