BETWEEN BRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 5 May 1887
BETWEEN ' BRINKS. ' I liavo seen men, whose calm, unruffled i passage down the pathway of life, fills mo I ?with feelings of envy, hatred, malice, and all uncharitaMcness, mJn whom nothing c ould excite to suddenness or prompitiule, cool men, who, if a pistol bullet came i. i.. +i,„ ? ,1 t ? 1...1 . I meerschaum to shivers, would remark, casually, ' Just beginning to colour, too.' 'Wlio would fall down a cellar and observe when they hit the bottom, 'Hum, they ought to shut that door,' or borrow a sovereign beforo imparting the information that they were leaving the colony perhaps never to return; but I think the coolest man 1 ever . met is tho commercial reporter of a daily paper here. This man's soul does not soar above the price of mnizo, or the rise and fall in tallow candlcs. He can tell the ' market value of wallaby skitia and wattle bark, but he does not know whether Surat ia in Asia Minor or Afghanistan.

THE PRINCE OF WALES AND THE JUB9L.EE YACHT RACE* Tho Prince of Wales presided over the I general meeting of the Royal Thames i Yacht Club, on March 11. Col. Buller | said the Jubilee race was an entirely extra : feature. The spirit of the preparations for the goneral Jubilee celebration was that there should be no exclusions and no restrictions. Tho race would, therefore, bo onen to tho world wif.lmnf. of rig or nationality. It would bring together rigs of all nations. It would, improve the build of yachts in that very wholesome direction — seaworthiness, corn fort, and economy, and it would tend to develop the important qualities of seaman ship and cool endurance in the sailors; and, lastly, it would redound to the credit of the Royal Thames Yacht Club. The Prince of Wales said: -fI must thank you very much for your re-election of me as commodore. I take a deep in terest in this club, and no one wishes its welfare more cordially than I do.

AN IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 5 May 1887
AN IDEA. As a means of punishing unprincipled runner3, it is stated that tlie Newcastle committee have informed their handicapper that certain runners did not try, and hs is to put them back considerably in the starts in the next handicap. By the time of the next handicap most people will have forgotten who did try to win and who did not, and the allotment ot starts will oe ono which will bo anything bnt satisfac tory to tho public. It will also bo unfair to the handicapper, and spoil what might have been a fair and good handicap. Would it not be bettor, I was thinking, to let the official put out liis best produc tion, and for certain penalties then to bo reduced from the starts. For instance, the committee could declare that a certain runner, who iu their opinion did not try, should havo for threo or six months three or less or more yards subtracted from the handicap givon him by the official handi capper. If John Jones wns punished with 3yds., and his start was 19yds., he would s...
HOW AN OVER CUNNING SPRINTER BECAME A VICTIM. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 5 May 1887
HOW AW OVER CUNNING SPRINTER BECAME A VICTIM. (Fp.oji A Newcastle Correspondent.) During the running of tlie recent Shef field handicap at Newcastle, E. Lazarus was disqualified for six months. An effort was made by several influential men to havo tho penalty remitted, but when the committee became aware of the true facts of the case thoy refused to re-open the matter. Thero wero only two runners in tlie heat —Church and Lazarus. When only two men are in a raco it is easy for them to come to mutual understanding. According to tlio statement of Church Lazarus told him that he was in fine form and would win, and as a friend he advised Church not to back himself. He added, 'you may be able to do u, good turn for me some day, and if you want a pound or two you can back me.' Before going out of the room Church states that the cunning Lazarus came smiling up to him with tho informa tion, 'You will have to win, for I am determined to lose should I fall down on the track.' This was givon as...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 5 May 1887
ATHLETICS. (By 'Nimblefoot.') On Saturday, at the Sir Joseph Banks' Grounds, the hurdles wero nicely inter laced with long green leaves. The effect was pretty and striking, and being re freshing and relieving to the eye, were of service to the racera in their jumping. ' Pondragon,' of the London Referee, says : — Hutchens' statement that when he beat Malono in a series of races, said to be for sums varying from -£-00, there was no money up, seeins to me to fire one end of a train that may run the whole length of his great racos for groat stakos in the Antipodes.' Morgan, the aboricinal, was brought over from Melbourne as a good thing for the Sir Joseph Banks' Hurdle Kace on Saturday. He was on tho 8yds., and Chirlie Samuels, on 7yds., easily put him down in ISsec. I believe his backer was immediately afterwards lieaid to remark — 'The best Victorian hurdle racers are only third-class over here.' There is an old saw that 'the first shall be last, and tho last first.' At Botany, howev...

TAIK STARTING. Pro THE EDITOR OF THE KEPEKEE.1 Sir,— In viow of tho groat amatour athlotic mooting- which is to take placo on Saturday noxt, at Aslifiold, I would liko to call tho .attention of tho starter to byo-law 13, which roads thus : — ' Any competitor going ovor his mark boforo the report ot tho pistol, to bo put hack ono yard., onrepotition of tho oft'enco to bo imi ruel; another and on further reposition to ho disqualified.' In tho past mjst starters havo totally ignored this im portant bye-law, and I trust that whoever tho ofticial may bo on Saturday, ho will show a littlo more determination than his predeces sors, and havo this bye-law strictly enforced. I am certain that ho would, in tho ond, gain tho rospect of all the competitors, who aro not so much to blaino for thoir wretched starting as the official wo havo had to contend with in tlio past. Thanking you in anticipa tion. — I am, &c. ONE WHO STANDS ON HIS MASK.
