ATHLETICS IN MELBOURNE. (PllOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Melbourne, Monday Night. The wrestle between Dunn, the cham pion, in the Cumberland stylo, and Thomas and Blackburn, on Friday last, at the Bijou, was an exceedingly taking exhibi tion of skill and science, though the wretched— 'glfil' ihi'jfnt well havo dis pirited the w'en, for at no time were there a hundred and fifty present at tlie audi torium. The referee who had been chosen by the men proved a very chatty indi vidual, and made the proceedings quite lively by his jocular method of addressing the audience, as when he informed them that there would be an interval of fifteen minutes between the falls in order that they might go to the bar and have a drink — at their own expense, or when, in re sponse to a growl that there wns no fall because both men nearly came down together, he assured the spectators that he knew what a no fall or dog fall was as well as any man, and his decision was that it was a fair fall. Dunn wrestled i...

A very small audience, about 120 all told, assembled in tho Bijou Theatre on Friday afternoon, to witness the contest between Dunn, the champion of the world, against Blackburn and Thomas, for the best of nine f ills, Cumberland style only. Captain ,1. Cowan was chosen as referee by the men. i'hiy commenced at twenty-two minutes past four, Dunn wrestling with Thomas first. The men played for some vtime, trying for a hold, which was obtained after about ten minutes. A sharp struggle for about half a-minute ended in a slip and a Ijreak away. They, however, soon got hold again, andnfter another half-minute Dunn placed Thomas cleanly on his back, time from the start being fifteen minutes. After fifteen minutes interval it was announced that Thomas had in the contest ricked his side, and could not wrestle any more. Blackburn, who is a powerful man of nuggcty -build, announced that ho would play the match out. A quick hold, a determined...
THE Y. R. C. AUTUMN MEETING MELBOURNE. Monday evening. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
THEY. R.C. AUTUMN MEETING (from our own correspondent. Melbourne. Monday evening. Since the Inst meeting great improve ments have been made by tlie V.R.C. com mittee, including extension of tho grand stand so as to accommodate another (-000 people. The paths have been asphalted, improvements made in the means cf in gress and egress, and on the whole tho al terations made proved highly satisfactory, aud of great convenience. 'I lie attendance improved during the day. Although the going was somewhat heavy tlie racing was good, although no fast time could be made. The question of short races lias recontl3' received considerable attention in sporting circles, and the moot poiut whether they are hotter than long races remains un settled. Five and six furlong races attract the largest number of entries, and result in more numerous payments into the funds of the clubs, and from this standpoint the committee adjudge them far and away ahead of two and three mile events.

MORNING GALLOPS. . Since our lost issue there ho3 been very little done in the way of work at Rand wick. Iu fact most of the horses are away at Melbourne, and during tho first day (Saturday) Mpheld the honour of their colony in a manner both creditable to themselves and their owners. Trident nailed his colours to the mast in tho St. Leger, and tho Hon. W. A. Long had the pleasure of winning the Brunswick Stakes, others who usually train at Randwick ha,vo been away up north, amongst them being Senteiice, Victory, Comus, &c., at Newcastle, some of whom have gone on to assist at Glen Innes. Thus the tiuiespent in early morning watching tliuse who have been left at home has not repaid touts for their trouble, as uot a gallop of a sensa tional character has occurred. Amongst the most prominent workers are Bangato, Quong Tart, Recruit, Paladin, . AVauda, Faro, Mazeppa, Malachi, and many others of the same class

SAILING AND ROWING. i I SAILING NOTES. (By ' Backstay.') . Last Saturday saw the last of tho Royal Yacht Squadron's races, and in all proba bility tho last of tho season, unless this Wollongong race comes off, or if any pri vate matches aro made. Last season Dr. Milford was not satisfied as to the Assegai | being the best boat, so they made a match, best two out of threo, the first and last being won by tho Assegai, tho Sao winning the middle one. I wonder whether the Doctor will do the same this year ? I am certain Mr.'Murnin would take him up. If these boats were to be sailed best and best the racing would be good, and well worth seeing. The Waitangi has scored another win from the Jlagic without her time allow ance, but even now the supporters of the 25-tonner do not acknowledge that they havo been beaten. Should they wish for another raee I am sure Mr. Milson will bo ready to meet them. Last Saturday's race was really a goed | one from start to finish, neither skipper i giving t...

SIR JOSEPH BANES QUARTER MILE. At Botany oil Monday about 500 or morn attended to witness the running of a quarter milo for prizes aggregating -£37. On this occasion tho quarter mile was only an experi ment of Mr. Smith's, and in future a bigger prize may he expected. There was some really excellent sport, and the races as a rule were keenly contested. Tobin was too leniently treated altogether, and ran vory well. Tho prizo was not large enough to cause any big betting, hut nevertheless a deal of sinail transactions took place. Fiust Heat.— T. M'. Malone, .'ivils., 1, Time, SOhcc. Lazarns, 25yds. ; N.

MORE RUNNERS IN A HEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
HOBS KUIJHEES IN A HEAT. I have always thought it would bo better to start six runners in a heat, instead of the four which obtains tho custom now. The more I see of Sheffield running the more I am confirmed in my conceit, and I think the extensive nominations that are now. received will force promoters to make some improvement in this direction. If six runners were to start 'in a heat the uncertainty of the event would be greater and the betting much better. Ono of the causes why the public give more patronage to professional sprinting as against amateurism is that they can satisfy tile British love of chanee and speculate on their opinions. In stead of the bookmaker laying odds they invariably about a heat ask for the field the additional odds of 2 and 3 to 1 on. It is unnecessary for me to say that tlie encouragement to the public to bet is very feeble, and some means should be devised to make the betting more reasonable. At present when only four men are set down for a race, the...
