MR. H. DAVIES' BIG ROWING HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

HB. H. DA VIES' BIG KOWING HANDICAP. (By ' Cornstalk.') Mr. H. Davies' efforts in promoting the .£150 handicap to be rowed on the Parra matta, are prompted from the most gen erous considerations for the sake of tlie sport. He says he does not wish to make a sixpence out of the venture, but on the other hand ho will divide all the profits above expenses among the rowel's them selves. He told me that the management of the whole concern will be left in the hands of a committee, and he expects, should the handicap be favoured with fine weather, that every man who enters will get an advance on his entrance money. The entrance fee of £7 10s. is to go to wards providing- a consolation race for tlie beaten men on the third day, but in no case will the amount set apart for the event exceed .£50. The proceeds of the boat following the race on tho first day, with the proceeds of the second day, when the final will be rowed — and likewise of the third day — when the consolation race will be con...

But words and breath together would fail the good woman if she were to attempt to describe tho an tics whereby the heroine of the piece makes these evil beings extremely un comfortable, the gymnastic slcill with which she baflles their manoeuvres and defies their control, and tho boundless extent of the resources by which she t tescues tneir victims and brings them Ik to grief.

ATHLETICS. FOR THE SAKE OF THE SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

ATHLETICS. [By Nimblf.foot], FOK THE SAKE OF THE SPORT. Sprinting or footracing is a pastime that has ever been popular with Britons, but no branch of sport, perhaps, has 'suffered so much from the effects of unfair dealing. One time the sprinting handicaps of Shef field assumed Biich popularity that even the promoters of horseraces became jealous of their success, bnt through the swindling of some of the officials anu others, that popularity was gradually withdrawn, and even to-day the30 handicaps have not recovered from the baneful effects of wrong doing. The history of tho cinder track even in this young country, is, in a measure, a repetition of its past in England. There was a time here when footracing was as popular as its most ardent supporters could desire, and a match between Robert Wat boii, a runnor, whose honesty of purpose was never doubted, and a reputed cham pion from England or America, would attnict as much public attention as any event in any other branch of athlet...

DIETING. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

DIETING. One time a proper system of dieting was thought a most essential part of a course of training for a footrace, but recently runners have grown into a habit of dis carding any gastronomical rules, and freely eating whatever is put before them. I nave always Deen oi opinion uini mere are certain kinds of food more favourable than any other for producing strength and ac tivity, and that a judicious selection of what a runner eats when in training is highly beneficial to him. Trainers of horses and dogs have always found it to their advantage to restrict their animals to certain feed, and I do not think the wisdom of this practice can he gainsayed. The recent performances of a bicyclist will strengthen) in a great measure, the old belief, now becoming absolete, in the virtue of special dieting. Alfred A. M'Carty has beaten ' all bicycle re cords from one hoar up to 24 hours, and in his training was under the charge of a Dr. Jordan. There was not a bit or drop allowed to pass M'C...

MALONE 'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

MALONE'S LETTER, Writing to a friend in Bega with regAi'd to his recent match with Hutehens, Tom Malone says : — ' Since I wrote last I have had the ill-luck of boing beaten by the world's wonder, Hutehens. I am, however, pleased at the good account I gave of my self under the trying circumstances. No week passed that I did not suffer twice from dyseutry, and for the life of me I can not make out the cause ; added to this, I was much troubled from sciatica, so that during my training I had only two strong runs — my trials — which were good enough to loso a fortune on. I am not yet pleased to my satisfaction, and am of opinion I can got closer to him, if not beat him. The time for both races is splendid, but not within a few yards of the 250 of my trial run, while my 150 trial run was beaten. I liojio to turn the tables before I get to Bega. I see your handicap list is published, but 1 can form no idea of it, as your men aro unknown to mo. I must say, however, that tho limit — 21yds....

CANTERBURY PARK RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

CANTERBURY 'PARK RACES. The Canterbury Park meeting on Satur day was, taking all ' other attractions into consideration, more than ordinarily successful. Fully 3000 were present, and the heat of the day being tempered with a cool breeze, the outing was very agreeable. The arrangements were well carried out, and the racing on the wliole good. The Flying Handicap fell to Recruit who made all his own running, and started at long odds. Speculation was thought to be good enough, but when called on for a linal effort, died away. Alma was well sup ported, though she did not actually start 113 first favourite t'or tho Canterbury Park Stake.s, as tlie Hon, W. A. Long served La Valliere up pretty warm. Hope ful had a good many followers, and it is very doubtful whether they would not have won had the horse not been shoved on the rails and blocked. Lady Marion had no difficulty in getting borne in tho Prince of Wales Stakes, while Figtree fairly waltzed in for the Canterbury Han dicap. The Dis...

THE S&TOTELS-HTJTCHENS RACE. Samuels 'Wins in 15 l-4sec. On Friday afternoon both Samuels (the Queensland aboriginal) and Hutehens (the well-known sprinter, of England) met at 5 o'clock to contest tiie match at 150yds. for .£200. Hutehens (who on Thursday re turned from Melbourne, where he ran Clarke) was supported by a local sports man, his backer (Mr. Markham) ana his trainer (Mr. Wisdom) remaining in the capital of tho sister colony to take their berths on board the Iberia, bound for England. It will be remembered that Samuels was the first man in Australia to defeat Hutehens, and immediately after the latter defeated the champion Malone in the remarkably fast times published. A second match was made with the abori ginal, which was to have taken placo on Thursday afternoon, but owing to the rain it was postponed till Friday. Some thing like 1000 people wore on tho ground, and offers of 2 and 3 to 1 against Hutehens were numerous, but layers against Samuels were quiot inde...

THE SAMUELS AND MALONE MATCH. Another Win to the Aboriginal. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

THE SAMUELS AND MAI.OITE MATCH. Another Win to the Aboriginal. (By 'Nimdlefoot.') Something like 4000 people attended to see tho SamuelB-Malono match run on Monday evening at G.30. Some time ago Malono issued a challenge, offering to give any man in Australia, excepting Hutehens, a half-vard in every 50yds., and Billy Tiees, oil bohalf of Samuels, took up the challenge for JJ100 aside. A great deal of interest was taken in this race, as it was generally expected thero would bo a close contest, as tho opposite proved to bo the result. The betting insido the stand grounds was 5 to 4 on Samuels, even Malone, and tho aboriginal's party were offering to tako even money. Outside tho stand enclosure the public had made Malone the favourite 5 to 4 on, but I do not think either runner was strongly backed by the public or his immediate supporters. Everything, of course, was unaer the control of the Carrington Athletic Com mittee, and punctual to timo tho gong sounded for tho men to appear on ...
