ATHLETICS. REMEDY FOR PREVENTING DISHONEST RUNNING. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887

ATHLETICS. REMEDY FOR PREVENTING DISHONEST RUNNING. Tho man who could prevent dishonest running or horseracing, or who could eradicate swindling, would be a very clever individual indeed, for like a number of other vices, it seems bred in many. There is no harm, however, in trying to suggest a remedy that may prevent a deal of the dishonesty surroundinirfootracinir. If, for instance, no money could be won by unfair running, nobody would indulge in the evil practice. Everybody likes to win, and when anybody who could win does not try, he dooB it solely with tho object of making money. Now if all huts on a race were declared olf when a man was disqualified, runners would not try so often to lose. I do not say this remedy would prevent all wrong doing, for men will always run for handicaps, but it would put an effective block on the worst feature of sprinting, corrupt practices, and it would prevent the public from being fleeced when they supported a favourite, and the favourites party...

FRIVOLOUS PROTESTS. (TO HIE EDITOR OF TUP. " SYDNEY REFEREE.") [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887

FRIVOLOUS PROTESTS, (TO HIE EDITOn of Tin: 'btdket kefebee.') Sir, — In the last issue of the Sunday Times I notice that Mr. Brambacli, of the Lotus, has protested against the Asteroid in tho l'iice for the Mayor's Cup. Tlie reason, I have since heard, given by Mr. Griffin, who wns sailing the Lotus, being that the Asteroid struck the buov in rounding Shark Island. Now, Sir, I re member some few months ago, the boat now known as the Lotus was called the Water Nymph, and was daily sailed by Mr. Griffin about the liarbour, with a hideous advertisement on her mainsail, and a puff for her present owner on her jib and fore sail. I am an outsider in racing matters, but I fancy there is a rule of the S.A.S.C., which defines a professional as ono who gets his ' living ou the water' (or to that effect). I pre3umo, therefore, that Mr. Griffin sailed the Water Nyuipli daily, dolled up as I have descri'* ed, for honour aud glory, or he is certainly no longer an amateur? Surely the time lias com...

THE SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIP. (BY THE EDITOR OF THE "SYDNEY BEFORE" [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887

THE SWlJaMINO CHAMPION SHIP. ~ i i 1 1 j r.niTon or t.'ik ' stdnet hkh:rkk ') Sir, — With your kind permission I would like to saya few words in connection with the above. Some days ago Mr. C'avill, sen., : published a challenge wherein hn stated | his willingness to biek his son Ernie to j su*im nny man in Australia one mile, for the championship aud .£50 a-sicle. If | Koniiv. of Melbourne, accepted and s**am in Sydney, he was to be allowed JB10 to cover expenses, or Cavill would take a like I sum and swim in Melbourne. This was fair enough, with the exception that, Cavill should not be allowed to have his I own way regarding the distance. Hither- | to 1000 yards has 'been considered m this and the adjoining colonies as quite far i enough to determine the endurance and j speed of champion swimmers, and any person knowing auytliing of this branch | of athleties will endorse what I say. j However, Kenny accepted the cartel, but stipulated that three distances shonld be swum, viz., 41...

Ellingsworth. Beats Cassidy. A fight with hard gloves fo'.' a purse of 25U dol. tho principals being William lillingsworth of New York and Jack Cassidy of Philadelphia, was witnessed by a select company near Fort Hamilton, L.I., on the evening of December. 21. The stated weight of Cassidy was- l-ililb., which was 51b. more than Kllingsworth was announced to weigh. The former was eocon led by Jack Tobin, while Bllings worth's attendant was his brother Charles. It was expected that the contest would be a severe one, but the reverse was the case, neither man seeming to put forth his best efforts, and when, in tlie ninth round, Cassidy went down from anything but a piledri ver of a hit, and failed to get upon his pins in the prescribed ten seconds, those present voted the tin*- and money spent as so much wasted. That tlie fighting was tame and spiritless throughout was, per haps, excusable so far as Ellingsworth was concerned, for the. reason that his super iority was early made manifes...

Slavin and Snow gave the best sliow of the evening, though it cannot be said that it was of a scientific character.

LATENT POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887

LATENT POWER. The recent volcanic disturbances in New Zealand and Tonga, and the great earth quakes in the United States, prove nothing more conclusively than the marvellous elfeots of latent power. The terriblo out hursts which made new islands, devastated largo tracts of conntry, swallowed up lakes, wrecked cities, and blotted out human life, find their source in nnmrn which havo been lying latent within the centre of the earth perhaps for eentuje^s. The3e latent powers accumulate ' and gather strength with time, until they be come almost resistless in their nature and effects j and it brings the question of latent forces before the public in a most striking, even if disagreeable manner. In all parts of tho land, and especially at this time of the year, the latent forces for good or evil in tho human system seem particularly active, l'eople who have been comparatively well during the 1 ontiro season, just now become aware that they possess nerves, and that they have muscles and jo...
