ASPENDALE PARK. A DAY FOR THE PUNTERS [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

ASPENDALE PARK. A DAY FOR THE PUNTERS. Despite the fact that fields were large, backers had much the better of the deal with tb.e ringmen at Aspendale Park last week. -They did not start off well, for in the first event, .the Aspendale First Divi sion Handicap, 6 furlongs, they sent out Rightaway, who hails from Tasmania, an. odds on favorite in a field of 15, but get ting away very badly he finished abso lutely last, much to the disgust of his backers. The Nvinner. turned up in Yeo val, a 10 to 1 chance, who won nicely from Graftonette, Galeria being third. There was not much difference in the price of either Kure and Brownie for the Jumpers' Flat Race, 1M mile, and the first-named won comfortably from Orleans and North port. The winner, was very badly placed in the early part of the race, and his win was very- meritorious. Shuffle and Mill song were each at 3 to 1 for the High Weight Handicap, 1^4 mile, and they 'finished in that order, Shuffle getting home by a length; King Dool ...

SPRING HANDICAPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

SPRING HANDICAPS; Speculation on all the big Spring events has now taken a more definite form, and several commissions have already been executed. Iranui and Gold Lace form a New Zea land combination that has been backed lor all the double money available for the Epsom and Metropolitan, and for which each is quoted favorite respectively. Maltine is in good demand for the Ep som, and is nearly as good a favorite as Iranui. Poi Dance has been befriended, and Aborigine has been backed by his party. He was well backed last year, and only just missed a place. Golden Slipper, Malt King, Parsee, Son of the Marsh, and Cremalto have all been well backed. ? Gold Lace and Britain are equally fan cied for the Metrop., and figure as favor ites. Others to receive attention are Aborigine, Blue Book, Parsee, Trafalgar, Jinnee, Effort, Golden Slipper, Balgowan, and Maltine. For the Caulfield Cup Hoax Is best fa vorite in Melbourne, and Sequarious has been backed by the stable. Prince Foote is not at...

; ROSEEERY RACES, I The meeting which was to have taken place at Rosebery on. Wednesday, July 20, but was postponed, on account of the rain was held at Rosebery last Monday.. Tlie programme was greatly strung out, as . nine races in all were run. Sport nnmmpnfifirl with the Flviner Handicap, six furlongs, and Ruatamata was best favo rite, but she could only run third to Jenny Sharp, who led all the way and won nicely from Alberto. The Maiden Handi cap, i% furlongs, next attracted ' atten tion, and it was found necessary to run it in two divisions. Love Charm was at a short price for the first, but Game Light, 8 to 1, beat her easily at the finish. E.F.O. captured the other division, but in the run off Game Light won nicely.

HORSES AND PONIES. WILL THERE BE OPEN PLAY? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

EORSES AND PONIES. WILL THERE BE OPEN PLAY? Mention was made in TIhb 'Worker last week of a movement in favor of inducing the A.J.C. to recognise, under certain conditions, the racing of ponies 14.2 and under at pony and galloway meetings without them coming under the ban of disqualification. As a result the com mittee of the A.J.C. has decided to invite the members of the club to bring their rules into line with those of the V.R.C. with regard to pony racing. If this is done it will enable any galloway or' pony 14.2 and under to race at registered meetings, and at pony and galloway meetings, but the privilege doe's hot ex tend to horses over that height. . The V.R.C. rules dealing with the matter are as follow: — . . Rule 193— 'If a horse other thana pony run at any race meeting which has not been advertised in the .' Jlacing Calendar' (unless the cornmittee of the Victoria Racing Club may have declared such ad vertisement unnecessary), such horse and the owner, trainer, jockey, or...

BETTING AND THE TURF [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

'.; BETTING- AND- THE TURF f Racing; affairs in New Zealand.' are in anything but a smooth. vein. A long dis cussion had been going on in the House of Repi-esentatives on a resolution by, the Premier .(Sir Joseph Ward) in favor, of the abolition of bookmakers, and things came to' a climax last Friday, when, by 69 votes to. 4, it was-resolved to repeal the Act authorising the licensing of bookmak-: ers Sir Joseph Ward had also sought to abolish the totalisator, buf on this he was defeated. Had . both' measures been adopted it would have simply meant the wiping out of the turf in New Zealand al-: together, which is just what similar legis-:, lation has done in New York. Therflt legislation has had' the effect ot driving the owners of racing strings and studs to seek fresh fields and pastures, new in Eng~: land and elsewhere, and had the drastic^ proposal to abolish the totalisator . been/ carried into effect we should undoubtedly, have seen- a. great exo'dus. of racing men and animals...

RANDWICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

; RANDWICK.^ Now that the big meetings are ap proaching- rapidly the Randwick trainers are getting their teams together, and the horses will soon be sent along at their best paces. The forthcoming meetings should be productive' of good racing,, as. Vmivcoc, linvB nlreadv come from New Zea land and other States, with more to follow. ' ? ? In point of numbers, P. Nolan is repre sented by about the largest team, twenty being on the track belonging to him. Britain is probably his king-pin, and he is now favorite for the Metropolitan, so good was his form at Rosehiil, where he won when he was not expected to. Adja cent is another useful member, as are Quentin, Orea, Dryite, Gidyea, Golden Brown, and several well bred twoyear olds (on August 1). : J.

UNCONVENTIONAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

UNCONVENTIONAL. "Wear and tear," he said, was respon- sible for his appearance; his moral cha- racter, likewise gone to tatters, he de-   scribed as an unnecessary adjunct of' a   philosophical existence. This particular evening, as he sat in the square munching the remnants of his latest portion from the "bread line," he reflected that such     men as he had their uses in the world. Everything must have an opposite, he argued with himself, "otherwise all   things would languish for lack of con- trast. Millionaires are made to appear       greater by the likes of me, and do I not   also provide them with an opportunity to soothe their consciences in well-timed   charity? True, I am abused; but their very abuse makes others feel better about themselves. Therefore am I not a bene- factor as well as they?" A woman came and sat down along- side him. His opini...

REGARDING RESOLUTIONS FOR CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 3 August 1910

REGARDING RESOLUTIONS FOR CONFERENCE. Dear Worker, — In going through the official report Dust to hand, I failed to see discussed at Con ference resolutions sent in from MidHt'fi'5' wool shed, also from Telerega, with regard to delegates and organizers. The resolu tions sent in from the various sheds bracketed together and dealing with this subject as reported are not identical ' with those sent in from the sheds I have mentioned. As thejpe did not seek to debar secretaries from .attending Conference; but were similar, so far as limiting or ganizers as delegates to two successive years, with the right to nominate again, the fourth year. This, it was thought would lead to the infusion of new blood by giving men within the rank and file some encourage ment to offer themselves as 'candidates; which at present they will not do, as there is no hope of success against organizers who, in carrying out their duties, become well known, while the private member does not come in contact with on...

THE SQUATTER AND THE STATION HAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 3 August 1910

THE SQUATTER AND THE STATION HAND. Dear Worker, — The wages rate for general station hands in New South Wales is £1 per week and rations. To ' obtain this mag nificent sum* the station hand must work any hours his. master may demand; The working hours vary. Laborers work from 55 to 75 hours per week; musterers ami boundary .riders from 13 to 14 hours per day. The rations supplied are of the very cheapest quality, and are not 'noted for their variety. The sleeping ' quarters generally consist of a shingle or. weather board hut, around -the inside of which are arranged tiers of bunks. This place is often draughty and- parasite-infested. In some station huts sthe kitchen adjoins the quarters, and meals are served in the sleeping apartment. The Accommodation Act is regarded by. a great number of squatters as a huge joke, and certainly, as it is at present administered, is far from being an unqualified success. The station hand, to retain his ' billet,' must be humbly'subservient. He mus...
