Wood Third. ;Second Day's Racing. j # Tho weather on Saturday morning was do* cidedly against the success of tho day's at tendance. All tho morning tho clouds hung overhead and threatened to treat pleasure seekers to a sprinkling before the aiternoon was over. , Tho contestants had been doing good train- I ing all the week, and consequently, the public 1 were anxious to witness tho remainm-r events I under any circumstances. Despite the un settled state of the atmosphere, no fewer than 12,000 people attended tho show, and the Englishmen were lucky in getting so many there on a damp day, as tho colonials are in variably loth to show themselves out on a showery day. People out here do care for rain, and Mr. Myers, tho well-known athlete, was somewhat surprised to see that a shower of rain delayed tho starting of tho Walking Race. Tho programme for yesterday's sports was...

He arrived in Sydney on Thursday last, by tho s.s. Alameda, and has taken up his quarters at the Oxford Hotel, in King-street, for the present, but during his trip to the colonies he intends visiting as many of the seaside resorts as possible, at one of which he will reside. Mr. George informed our representative that he had come to Australia purely for a pleasure trip, and meant, if possible, to enjoy himself. He had been cordially welcomed by Mr. L. E. Myers, his old friend and antagonist, and also by tlio many Australians to' whom he had been introduced.

AMONG THE BOXERS. [By 'Boxer-Ma.tor.'] Notwithstanding the inclcmoncy of the ' weather on Saturday night, Foley's Gym nasium was densely packed with lovers of boxing. Every seat was occupied, and fully 200 were content with standing room. At the call of time Bonnar and Fitzsimmons emerged from the dressing ? room, when it was announced that they - would occupy each other's attention for t ? ' iour rounds. The first one was of the tamest \ description, while the second showed \ 1 Ver-V.li^^ improvement, and the two suc ? ceeding rounds were very lively. Here \fcfMid there some good countering ensued, Abut Fitzsimmons* reach was too long for ^fiiis sable companion, and, altogether, their ll'kow can be written off in the one word W friendly.' vtSomething better followed when the f|»|inger Slavin and Nolan faced each other 8w a similar bout. Slavin is a very awk /*jf d customer to face. Being very detcr ^rhiined, and possessing a style which de V notes '* heavy weather ' should the man ...

ELECTRIC LIGHT HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 17 February 1887
ELECTRIC LIGHT HANDICAP. Although during the afternoon tlio rain fell at times. and increased as evening approached the committee decided that the handicap should bo started at 8' o'clock in spite of all obstacles. Tho lights wero subdued by the damp: on tho glass, but still tho runners could bo distinctly soen from the start to the finish. Tho grand stand was clearly and beautifully lighted up, and \ no doubt on a favourable night tho illumina tion all along the track would bo sufficient. In tho first lieat Ellora ran in first-class style, and such as ho ha« never before exhibited in Sydney. T. S. O'Connor was disqualified for going over his mark at the start three times, Although some of tho running was doubt ful, nothing warranted tho committee in disqualifying any of the per formers. After the interval the books got a ' lift ' by King going down badly. In tho tenth heat Solomon was made a warm favourite, but Farrow, who is a good man and a vory old performer, ran a desperate rac...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 17 February 1887
ATHLETICS. . [By, Nimblefoot]. Liddle, the Englishman, had notsnfii .ciently recovered from his, break-down at /Newcastle to start in his heat in the Elec tric Light Handicap. ' Malaclii, an old athletic performer at Bathurst, and Ross, who ran in the last1 Carrington, are matched to run a 150yds. race for .£40, on the 19th inst.. at Bathurst. Running by the electric light is novel to the runners, and generally they do not seem to dislike it. Although the lights are very good, they are a long way from daylight, and the runners who do not try to win are not so easily detected as at day time. Sprinters, however, have to be careful, because the officials are getting well up to all their moves. Disqualification is now a punishment that is dreaded by runners. On the first night of the Electric Light Handicap Farrow was cautioned by the officials that men would be stationed all along the track, and that if there was anything sus picious he would be disqualified, and on the second night th...
