THE PEDESTRIAN FILIBUSTER. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 28 April 1887
THE PEDESTRIAN FJ LI BUSTER. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. (By ' Nihblefoot.') Eacli athletic committee or promoter seems, in awarding punishment to swindling sprinters, to bo working within a very confined circle, and outside that circum ference thrs scoundrel who has attempted to rob the public can renew his iniquity. The country, it appears, is beintr overrun with a gang of filibustering pedestrians, who are. bv means of fraudulent per formances, false names, and disguised appearances, attempting to rob the public of money, provided for open, free, and fair competition, They are passing over tho country like a roving horde |of hawks, pouncing down upon every prize. At Deniliquin a number of true sporting gentlemen have dono a great public service by laying bare to the public tho true conduct of a pedestrian who has fallen, from grace in the city, and who has been forced into the back country in something after the manner as the . dingo has been driven backwards from civilisation.

QUEENSLAND SPOUTING NOTES. Brisbane, Monday. BRIGHTER PROSPECTS. u A good timo looms beforo us ; Lot deHjmiriHtf thought* depart ; Hope KprcndH it« bright beam o'er us, Imparting courago to tlio heart.' I feel in a poetical and quotable frame of mind. The sun is actually shining, and you can get a decent piuenpplc for six pence. The earth is actually dry, and there is very little mud in the streets. Uio ' man with the muck rake, (another quote), is like Othello, and finds his occupa tion gone. It is practicable to reach the racecourse without getting bogged, and when yon do get there, wonder of wonders, the ground is Iry. All this tirade means that fine weather has set in. It came un expectedly, and people can hardly believe it yet. .Somebody must have been getting at W'ragge, the meteorologist, and squar ing him. Perhap3 the Secretary of the Q.T.C. has put him on a good double at so much to nothing. During the past wcel: everything looks brighter and more cheer ful. It is cool too,...
SPORT IN NEWCASTLE. NEWCASTLE, Monday Night. Lazarus and M 'Lachlan Disqualified. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 28 April 1887
SPOUT IN NEWCASTLE. (from our own correspondent.) INewcastle, Jlonaay jNight. Lazarus and M'Lachlan Disqualified. There was somo very crooked running during tho contest for the Fifth Grand Handicap. Lazarus very properly was dis qualified for six months, and since the com mittee gave their decision exertions liavo been put forth to have a portion of the disqualification removed, but on account of his barefaced running there is very little lineiinooci oi the committee budging an inch. This, of course, will interfere with Lazarus' chance in tho Botany, but the public wero unanimous in asserting that the disqualification was just, and one thoroughly deserved. M'Lachlan, of Maitland, received a similar disqualifica tion, and lie can thank his stars that he was not maltreated at tlie hands of the many miners who backed him to win. They were very wild at this youngster's running, and disgusted with the running of the final of the All Comers', in which ho competed. There wero numerous othe...

ANOTHER AUCKLAND YACHT TO VISIT SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 28 April 1887
ANOTHER AUCKLAND YACHT TO VISIT SYDNEY. I havo every reason to believe that Auckland will be represented in tho inter colonial yacht races in Sydnoy next season by another locally-built yacht. Mr. R. Logan, the builder of the Muritai, Maratea, Matangi, Jessie Logan, Arawa, andTawera, the pick of Auckland's yachting fleet, is now in negotiations with a fniitlomnn wTin is greatly interested in yachting, to build a vessel to compete in tho Sydnoy races of next season. She will be not less than 25 tons, perhaps 30, and will be built in some what similar lines to the two local clippers, the Muritai and Matangi. During a 'conversation with Mr. Logan, he informed me that the builders of the yacht for the gentleman mainly -depends on his selling tho Matangi. and that i3 almost a cer tainty. The Matangi is the best built of all our yachts, and quite equal to any in speed though she has had no trial. Her dimensions are: — Tonnage, 13 tons; 41ft. on water-line, 9ft. beam, 8ft. depth to top of ...

DARLINGHURST: ITS ADVANTAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 28 April 1887
? DAMINOHUItST: IT3-. ADVANTAGES.' Some persons experience a feeling of distress after eating. Tliey are well-to-do, and overload their stomachs with tempting viands. This feeling of distress after eating disappears entirely after the suf ferer has been 111 Darlinghurst a few days. Another class experience a great deal of distress before each meal. This distress is caused by their not knowing whore oi' how they are going to got the meal. It vanishes immediately in Darlinghurst. None of the inmates miss their meals, sueli as they are. Persons of a very nervous organisation become thin from worry incident to life in a great city. They seek to acquire adipose tissue by going to various health resorts. Tho best placo to get fat is to get fat all over, and that can be effected in Darling hurst, where men with bills,, book can vassers, and all the grand army of bores aro rigidly excluded. On the other hand, there are some men so fat that if all the flesh were grass tlioy could rent themse...
