Further details are given by the Paris correspondent' of the London 'Sporting Life,' which sa.ys: — 'Belgian ' sportsmen and the Belii^n press resent some of the remarks of M. Edmond Veil-Picard, who gave to an in terviewer from one of the Parisian news papers his reasons for retiring irom tne turf. He has been driven to this 'step, he says, partly by the invasion of the Belgians with their sporting morality. The leading Belgian subject who races in France is M. C. Lienart, against whose honor and integrity there has never been one word of reproach; in fact, a more straightforward man it. would.be difficult to find. .Latterly Mr. George Ashman, who formerly trained M.

BACK-BREAKING LOADS. COMMONWEALTH WILL PROHIBIT USE OF 6IG BAGS. ? Mr. Tudor, Minister for Customs, an nounces his intention, of proposing the. introduction into the Customs ; Act of an amendment which will give power to prohibit the exportation of any goods contained in sacks or bags of a capacity exceeding 2001bs.

Ennismar and Simple Simon were the best backed of the others.

HANDICAPPER'S FRIGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 21 July 1910
HANDICAPPER'S FRIGHT I i Lapt week Cremalto was a great town tip for the Rosehill Nursery, in which he had 8.3, with a 7.7 minimum, but he did not, start. This week, for ' Canterbury Park, Mr. Quinton has risen him to 8.11, with a 71b. lower minimum, making a rise of 151b. for not running. The winner 'of last week's Nursery only went up 81b. for his win, while most of the others engaged ha.ve been lowered from 31b. to 71b. Every body was waiting for Cremalto at Rosehill, and the certainty he was reckoned evi dently got to the haridicapper's ears. It is impossible to account for the rise any other way. It is hard to say why hancii cappers should be influenced by tale bearers, but the fact remains that they are, and it is certainly rough on the owners. ? + ? The well known Victorian rider W.
