Denman Races. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 February 1894
Denman Races. (From our Correspondent.) The annual meeting of the Denman Race Club on Friday last passed off in » highly satisfactory manner. There was a good attendance of the public, fair fields, and some excellent racing, it being quite refreshing to notice the number of horses ' having a cut.' TMiprA wnca a. liH-.lfl llniiianannfTiaea /-Dnoa«? avuv the Sovereign Handicap. Up to the time of closing of entries there was only one nomination received, so the committee acting under rule 40 of the A.J.C. decided to leave it open until 12 o'clock on Friday when it closed with seven entries. The ' clever ' party behind Ep3om then supported him with great freedom, but he only ran third, eo they entered a1 protest against the first and second horses for late entry, which we consider was very properly dis missed by the committee. They then gave notice of appeal to the A.J.C. Following is a rssumo of the racing : — Opening Handicap of £15; second horse 1 eov from prize ; six furlougs. Mr. C...

DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. [From oub Correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Wednesday. EOAD VEBSTTS BAIL. The preposterous railway carriage rates in the Northern district have produced a remarkable result. The indignant public have here, as well us in other parts of the colony, taken up nrm3, or rather teams, against them.

Produce is carried by train at 14s 6d per ton, but unspecified goods such as groceries, furniture and general merehandise at £4 5s 9d per ton. T...
