Murphy 's Benefit. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887

Murphy's Benefit. Larry Foley's Athletic Hall last Monday night was the scene of a benefit tendered to Murphy, the New Zealand champion light-weight. The house was a good one, and the little eight stoner was perfectly satisfied. .rim Hall and a chum named Dowling 'begau with four rounds. Jim had some up his sleeve, and by letting his opponent off too much, made the exhibition rather tame. Two anlateurs, both friends of the New Zealander's, gave four excellent ?rounds. Tho work, although fresh and green, was good, and no time wns lost in sparring for wind. In fact, the boys thumped each other till time was up. Tho audience loudly applauded them. Tom Taylor and the amateur Broomfield boxed four rounds, and although the amateur laid himself out, Tom took it very quietly, aud was content with defending himself. Mr. Broomfield worked hard, but could do no damage, Tom simply smiling at him. Murphy and Williams then faced each other, and although the latter had much the advantage in weight...

In addressing tho Gimcrack Club re cently on raising , the weights, the Hon-.

THE AUSTRALIAN CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887

THE AUSTRALIAN CUF. Having dealt with tho Newmarket Han dicap, my duties compel me to direct my attention to the above. With respect to the former, it is no easy task, as almost any horse with pretensions to being a ; racer has a show of getting to the end of the journey, but with the latter things are .completely different. It takes [ a rocohorje to negotiate even a mile and | a half in respectable time, and that being so, how much more is required of them to got the extra three-quarters. Consequently there are but few in the event whose chances are worth ])eruBing, and starting with the lop weight, Trenton, who has Hst.Hlb., there appears to be nothing better in the race. If he is as well as he was during the Melbourne Cup meeting he will take no end of beat ing. Judging from his ri'.-i home 111 the Cup there would be nothing in the race had it been the extra quarter, and to the Maori I look for something good. Nelson follows with only lll). loss. He, too, has covered himself with...

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING THE NEWMARKET HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887

Y.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING THE NEWMARKET HANDICAP. [''.By Ivuii.y Hiimi.'] I The groat French Statesman ' Riche lieu,' made use of the quotation 'The pen is mightier than the sword.' There is not the slightest idea, however, that he referred to horseracing when ho made the remark, but that it applies forcibly in this direction is a fact beyond contradiction. When tlie ' mighty pen ' has afforded an index to the intentions of owners, then something tangible will be given to work upon ; but at the present it is level bet ting that one cannot spot a starter. A book opened in this direction, would, I am sure, be both well patronised by the public and remunerative to the penciller. Such being the case, my duty at this dis tance is by no means a very pleasant one, and while attempting to select a few of the best, I must rest solely on past public performances, and a few little whispers that have gone about quietly. Fully 100 rem tin in the race, the first of which on tho list is William Tell, ...

Mr. Lamond then brought out Chesham and Blairgowrie, v.-lio were given a fair gallop, but neither were allowed to fully extend themselves. Orange Blossom, with a couple of others, did not so at top pace, and were followed by four of Lamond's youngsters, who took things quietly. Wanda went stoutly alone, finishing re solutely.
