THE CARRINGTON HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887
THE CAR RIN GTON HANDICAP. Tlie final night of tho above handioap was attended by about 4000 pooplo, and everything passed off with groat ruccess. In tho second round two dead heats wore run, and the run ning was of a very fair class. Samuels ran vory woll in his heat, but ho had tho misfor tune to meet the ultimate winner of tho han dicap. In tho socond round the conduct of O. Donohuo, a reputed performor in tho Now England district, callod for tho consideration of tho committee, and after hearing what tlio sprintor himself had to say, rewarded his efforts by disqualifying him for twelve months. The fastest and best raco of tho whole night, and if not tho handicap, was that in which tho Victorian sprintor Wilkinson was boaten by barely afoot by Hayes. Wilkinson ran a most deggod raco, and it is said if ho had won the boat that ho would likewise soctire tho final. Bo this as it may, tho fact is plain that the heat was tun three yards quickor than tho final, and the sevoro strugglo a...
CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887
[?] (Bt 'Not Out.') I Tho past week Iihh been morn eventful than those of its predocesnors. For uiuny ?weeks cricket has been rather discounted by tho counter attractions, but once again the cricket loving public are to have a jre ry happy fortnight indeed. The great event of the past week, viz., tho third mutch between Shaw's t/\am and tlio New South Wales Eleven, has ended not altogether unexpectedly in a very flattering victory for ' our boys.' The Ifinglish captain cannot declaim the awards of Dame Fortune thi3 time, as he had the choice of the wickets, and who can lie blame if he has made any mistake. The most singular occurrence in tho^ match -3 the stato of tho game whon Bates, assisted by 'byes,' made the whole score while no less than four of the best batsmen on the English side wero dis missed for duck eggs. Can it'be that Bates is tho only man who can fathom the mys terious trundling of Messrs. Turner and Ferris, or what in it ? Shrewsbury seldom fnils to score. Barlow is...
Melbourne Annual Regatta. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887
Melbourne Annual Regatta. A marked success attended the first re gatta held at Albert Park, under the aus pices of the Victorian Rowing Association, on Saturday last. About 3000 spectators paid for admission to the reserve, and largo numbers took seats in the gratid stand, from which they derived the double plea sure ot an excellent view ui une iiunu) succeeding contests and the full enjoyment of the music of St. Joseph's Band, from Tasmania, which played a more than or dinarily well-selected programme of twelve pieces. The programme, which was ably carried out in all its details, comprised eleven rowing events and one sailing con test. The entries received for the former were very large, and as the width of the course only permitted of three crows rowing atone time, 30 licats had to bo decided before finality could be obtained. The succession of races was, therefore, bo quick that iu several instances the boats engaged in one heat were almost caught up by those in r. The interest a...

SYDNEY AMATEUR SAILING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887
SYDNEY AMATEUR, SAILING CLUB. Tho Sydnoy Amateur- Sailing Club wa3 favoured with a grand day last Saturday, and the three races were finished in good timo. The first event was tho Mayor's Cup, the J. S; Poyen this time showing her rivals tho way from start to finish. The light weather just suited hor, and Mr. Jewett took advantage of it and sailed hor well. I was glad to seo him score a win atter so many attempts. The Lotus did not seem to travel so well as on the previous occasion, and from what I could see they spoilt tho set of their mainsail for the topsail, by lowering the peak. Tho Asteroid (or as I tho wag has it tho ' Tortoise,') stuck to ' her opponents very v. ill, considering the' fit out she hod on, hot this is no doubt - due to the seamanship st Harry Stevens. - If old Boreas will put a few hands on the j bellows the next occasion, which is next ' Saturday, thero is no doubt that the Aste roid will have her day out. i As it stands at present the Lotus and r Poyen each h...

QUEENSLAND SPORTING I (FBOH OUB OWN OORRESTONDEWt). Bbibbanb. Monday. Somo fow woeks ngo I sent you word that we had boen overwhelmed with a Becond deluge up hero, and that tho condition of the country was terrible. As I antici pated, the Logan and Albert) Jockey Club have had to postpone their meeting on account of the roads being rendered im passable, the lands being flooded, and the severe Josses in tuo uiscrici. in auopting this course they are undoubtedly right, for tho , meeting must havo resulted disas trously. The money that would have been wasted this year can be added on to next season's meeting, and will make it a bumper one. Surely we shall not be visited with another such flood. We may bo a very iniquitous lot of people here, but about one flood in twenty years is about what wo deserve as punishment for our misdoeds. If we have moro there will be nobody left to repent, which would bo a calamity indeed. Mr. Thomas Brayford, tho hon. sec. of the club, has sent the followi...
SAILING AND ROWING. SAILING NOTES ROYAL SYDNEY YACHT SQUADRON. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887
SAILING AN1) ROWING. SAILING NOTES'* I By ' Backstay.'! ROYAL SYDNEY YACHT SQUABROK. Last Saturday's yacht race was- very far from being an interesting one, except dur ing the earlier part of it, between the Sirocco and Assegai, they keeping well together until Bluefish was passed. The Harpy and Carina kept ono another' com- pany nearly all through ; these boats wero the two first and two last, leaving the Sao in the middle. She was noarlv n.11 fln-Ait-rli the race after passing Harpy off Shark Point by herself, though onco. off George's Head, tho last time down, , sho got very close to the Assonni. The day was a poor' ono for a yacht raco, there being very little wind, so this very seriously effected' tho Harpy's chances, her sails being small, and'- her squareheader not much good'. I think Mr. Williams wanted to find out what sho would do with the Sirocco before making the contemplated alterations. Mr. Reeks, who was on board on Saturday, is, I believe, to carry out these improvem...

THE COMING GREAT MATCH - ENGLAND V. AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887
THE COMING GREAT MATCH-' ENGLAND V. AUSTRALIA. All arrangements in connection with tho organisation of the All Australian team havo not been definitely settled up to going to press. Blackliam is likoly to come, while Trumble and Bruce are likewise un certain. G. Giffen will not play, but his brother, W. Giffen, lias consented to play, we believe tnat Liyons rrom aoutu Aus tralia may also join in the fray. W. L. Murdoch will not play in tho ensuing match, which will be the last appearance of the English team in New South Wales. As the members of both teams aro well known adepts on a fast and dry wicket, the scores are likely to bo larger than those of late, and therefore the consest should bo the more exciting.
