M R. G. S. ROWE. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 21 April 1887
MR. G. S. &OWE. Tho appointment of this gentleman to rule tho destinies of the Canterbury Park Ifaice Club call for more than ordinary comment, nnd tho club is to .be congratu lated on their selection. Possessed of the experience Mr. Howe is, there is no doubt a, goou luturo is in storj tor tno ciud, as liis wido knowledge in racing matters must lead towards its success. Mr. Bowe for merly held a similar position in the Eose hill club, and those who came in contact with him officially know how courteous and gentlemanly ho always was, while tho general public who visited Koseliill races can boar testimony to the fact that every thing was carried out with promptness and exactitude. We wish him every success in his new office, and feel satisfied that tho club could not find a gentleman who will do more to serve its interest) and guard over its welfare than ho is capable of doing.

Therein it was stated | that l-o ' Genuine ' had JC100 and ' could find a few more hundreds to back Connor.'

VICTORIAN sporting NEWS. (prom our own correspondent.) Monday Evening, Coming Events. A few minor meetings are to take place during the week, including several minor country fixtures. Tlie Major Plains and Pine Lodge Races take place on Wednesday, 20th, when a comfortable littlo programme of the orthodox pattern will be gone through. The Coleraine Races are on tho 20th and 2lBt., and chief interest will attend the Steeple, this being ono of the stiffest steeplechase courses in tho colony. On the Coleraine course tho flat is small swamp, where duck shooting supplants racing whon water is plentiful, and trees havo been felled round its borders nnd fences erected in a way that maKC tne Dig jumps race particularly in teresting. The days of the Great Western Steeplechase have, however, gone perhaps never to return, but I remember tlie time when the Coleraine Steeplechase was a very big thing. Tlio Tallarook rac«a also take place on the 21st, but will be left pretty well to district horse...

NEW ZEALAND SPORT. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.). Auckland, April 12. Murphy's Benefit. The henefit'tendered to our light-weight champion did not turn out such a success as I anticipated, but this was owing moro to mismanagement than anything else. Murphy was billed to spar four rounds with Charlie Tavlnr. frmn Rnn but this boxer pleaded that lie waB out of condition and declined to spar. Diek Mat thews and a local man named Clune opened proceedings, but it was very tame. Murphy coming forward to address the audience challenged any light-weight id New Zea land for a reasonablo stake, and declarod his willingnes to meet a middle-weight if no light-weight could be found, and offered to give Tcague, the undisputedlight-weiglit champion of New Zealand, 2 to 1 in what ever he liked, and fight him for the cham pionship, also a level fiver that ho knocked him out in a given number of rounds.

QUEENSLAND SPORTING NOTES. BRISBANE, Monday. TATTERSALL 'S RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 21 April 1887
QUEENSLAND SPORTING NOTES. Brisbane, Monday. TATTERSALL'S RACES. For a wonder it was line for tho races last Saturday and Monday. Considering the great amount of rain we have had of late tho course was in first-class going order, and although there were one or two spills, no serious accident occurred. The first day tho attendance wa3 limited, but on Monday there was a good roil up, and the stand presented a lively appearance. Tattersall's Club is a vounir one. com paratively speaking, ar*l already it lias run the Q.T.C. close iu its meetings. I cannot, however, compliment the club upon their management this time, and they must do better in the future if they wish to uphold their prestige. The stewards made rather too free with their betti.ig, and they hob nob with the jockeys at the bar, and this does not look well. Tho Hurdlo Race on' the first day was a miserable failure, Whose fault it was I will not say, but the1 hurdles were not up when the flag fell. As it was only a couple of...

A. ChuTch has gono to Newcastle, and it is thought that he will have a good show of winning the final. Harry Miller, after his Carrington, is mo3t fancied, in spite of having to go back for second place. Tho Ctmmimnlla sprinter has 13yds., and Church I lyds. Two hundred and seventy-five runners have nominated for the second Grand Car rington Handicap. A.11 the good men, it is said, have sent in their names. The starts are due on Monday nest. A good acceptance has been received for Newcastle Handicap, which commences on the 21st. I wish the ne-w promoters every success. Mr. Frank Smith should he pleased with the entry he has received for both his hurdle and quarter-uulc race. The best men in the colonies are in both, and it is indeed difficult to pick a man who is likely to be the winner. In the quarter-mile I fancy A. Brown, with one arm, on the limit. Hoelseher, on 22yds,, should he feel that waj', should bo able to put down any thing in it. Ho is a very good quarter man. In the Hu...
