PLACE MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 21 April 1887
PLACE MONEY. In providing tlie money for a Sheffield it is always the custom to give the first man littlo more than tho other threo place men. In a £250 handicap .£150 would go to tho first inanj and .£100 to tho others. There is'a great deal of chance iu heat running I as to what men a runner might have to meet. In his three rounds a placo man may have only vevy poor sprinters to meet, while the wiuner may have the best three runners outside himself in the handicap to defeat. A Sheffield handicap should be a raco for ono man, as the best runner should win. The next best man might easily get put out in his first round, and on that account I think too much is given to place men and uot enough to the actual winner. If I were promoting a handicap of .£2.'j0 I would give ,£220 to the first man. JE10 to the second, 410 the third, and .£5 the fourth. If a man has been I heavily backed, the second money is of little consolation to him. Ho risks all on tlie chance of obtaining tho first pla...

THE LIVINGSTONE- STEVENS MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 21 April 1887
THE LIVINGSTONE-STEVENS MATCH. ? (137 OCR NEWCASTLE CORRESPONDENT.) ; Livingstone is still in tho dark as to what Stevens 1 intends doing regarding their projected ten-hiile match. ? The' latteirwrote to your paper last week, say ing that all preliminaries had . been arranged for tho race to be. ruei on tho 30th, on; the Carrington Ground, whereas, up to the present, Livingstone has received no notification of the match ever being made. However, lio is prepared at any timo to, meet Stevens, it' the latter will only name a placo of meeting, where to put up a deposit, and sign articles. Surely, if Stevens means business, he will put up some money, and thus put a stop to further wrangling. As a matter of fact, Livingstone is working in the mine daily, and it would tako him fully a month to get in anything liko fettle.

SPOltT IN NEWCASTLE. I (from our own correspondent.) Newcastle, Monday Night. Sport with Us. Matters of a sporting naturo are begin ning to look far brighter than they have been for some weeks past. 'We aro a great sporting folk here as a mle, and there is not an event transpires either in Sydney or Melbourne but what we/rnve an interest of some kind in. Tho resulfe of tho Sydney Cup was a bit of a surprise to us, and we are now waiting for the result of the Elec tric Light Handicap. There are no- books open on tho event in Newcastle, yet it is freely predicted that Frazer Clarke, of Maitland, will win, and many bacfers ha-ve sent their money to the metropolis for the purpose of backing him. Walls end Handicapping. There was any amount of dissatisfaction' over the 'Wallsend races.

A LEADING ANNUAL SHEFFIELD HANDICAP. What Is Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 21 April 1887
A LEADING ANNUAL SHEFFIELD HANDICAP. ! What Is Wanted. Wo aro now having Sheffield handicaps every day of the week, and there is nothing in particular to distinguish one from another. The Sir Joseph Banks' handicaps aro all about tho same prize money. The Carrington Grounds made a handsome beginning with a £o25 handi cap; but since then no less than three electric light Sheffields have been com menced, but thero is no especial feature about them. Entries have been received for a second daylight handicap, but then tho prize-money is not so big. An event is wanted to. tako the place in foot-racing that the Derby and Cup does in horse-racing, and the Waterloo Cup in coursing. An effort should be made to, establish a Sheffield of an Intercolonial character. It should only occur once a year, and should bo the richest prize by far offered in the twelve months. Say .£500 should be given with a sweepstake of 10s. each. It is tlie large money prizes that attract the attention of tho public, ...

ROWING NOTES. (By 'Cornstalk.') There is no doubt that Neilson haB greatly improved since lio last rowed Mat terson, and I am of opinion he will, give a good account of himself dnring tho next season. It will bu remembered that tho Mer cantile Eoiving Club some time ago gen erously offered a .£50 trophy for an Inter colonial Sculling Race, but owing to the non-entry of our neighbouring scullers the race fell through, lho same cluo nave now decided. to place a senior four race, in string test nigs, at their annual regatta which takes place on tlie river some time in September. The prizo will be_a trophy valued at £iO, and the raoo is to be open to the metropolitan clubs, nnd also thoso of the other colonies. Queensland, I hear on good authority, will send a crew, but would rather havo the race rowed in best and best fours. This is impossible, as our clubs do not go in for this class of boats, but the difficulty could be met by altering the race to clinkers, which the committee might ...

A Venturesome and Risky Voyage. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 21 April 1887
A Venturesome and Risky Voyage. Messrs. Packham (better known as Brutus) and Claude Hay made a rather venturous voyage to Newcastle at Easter in an 18ft. boat. Fortunately they had fine weather, otherwise it would not havo been a pleasure trip, but nothing either of these two gentlemen do in boats will sur prise me. They cleared North H^ad in their tiny craft at 3.30 a.m. on Good Friday morning, and had light S.E. winds and calms until off Nobbys, which was reached the same night at 11.15, under twenty hours, a very good trip for so small a boat. When off that head a nasty ciistorly squall was fallen in with, but their boat behaved very well, and ran into Newcastle under the jib only. I heard that these gentle men had got back safely as far as Broken Bay before Easter Monday, so escaped all tlie bad weather wo have had since that dav.

After such a busy week fts that of Inst it ?was natural that the representatives of the 'noble art ' should seek rest, and con sequently there rewnins very little for me to talk ai-out.

In the Sali-Christol bout the former secured the victory owing to his opponent meeting with an accident. Both mon succeeded in training a fall, the Italian doing so after half an hour's hard work, and the latter nfter another ten minutes. The injury sustained by Christol was to liis ribs, and he will remain hort de comhat for some few waeks at least. The contrast between -lie two men was very striking.
