The Australian Steeplechase meeting, I known a few years ago as the Caulfield f Grand National meeting, was commenced I at Caulfield last Saturday in beautiful I weather. The popularity of the fixture r was shown by the large attendance, while ] another proof that the change of the name 5 of thfi fixture has not adversely affected lit was -shown in the nuinber-'of^interstat'e competitors. The going was very good, idespite the recent rains, though, of course, ;it was not too fast. ^ . ; . _ i Proceedings commenced \^^vith the I Crimea Trial, six furlongs, '.-^nd^baclcers Selected Wiridgil as favorite' 'out;:- of the nineteen runners.

ROSEHILL RACES. A Farcical Hurdle Race.—Two Finish.—Nuwara Eliya a Winner—Didus in Good Form.—A Jockey Injured.—Scratchings Numerous. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
ROSEHILL RACES. A Farcical Hurdle Race. — Two Finish.— Nuv/ara Eliya a Winner — Didus in Good Form. — A Jockey Injured.— Scratchings Numerous. Saturday's meeting at Rosehill was not productive of any special features, ex cepting that a miserable field of four started for the Hurdle Race, and the two favorites, Dinyah and Contorp, fell, or rather Dinyah clouted a jump badly and his rider came off, while Contorp jumped right into the hurdle near the mile post, and turned turtle, his rider, G. K. Phillips, sustaining a broken collar-bone and con cussion. Contorp had one of his shins cut badly, but neither Dinyah nor his rider was -hurt. Kielder, the outsider of the four (4 to 1) led all the way, and won by the length of the straight almost from South Head, who 'was extremely soro and just hobbled round. It was one of the poorest exhibitions of hurdle racing one could possibly have seen. A field of nineteen went to the post for the Maiden Plate, and Meringue was favorite at 9 to 2. Sayn...
ROSEBERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
ROSEBERV. ; The meeting held by the Rosebery Racing Club on Saturday last was very successful, the attendance being large while the weather was ' ideal, and the racing good. H. Dove and' S. McDonald had a great day, as they rode the win ners of six events between them. The first race, 14.3, maiden, was run in di visions, Fay winning the first and Lord Tristram the next. In' the run off 10 to 1 'on' was laid on Fay winning, but she got beat. Stealaway, at an outside price, won the Innovation Handicap, six fur longs, from the favorite Wallassey, Bar neyonte- being third. Little Harry won the 14.1 Handicap from Cecil and Native Rose. Only four started in the Rose bery Handicap, 5% furlongs, and the 14.2 pony Esor won nicely, fi'om Ascot .and Lady Fucile, the favorite, Goldlock, finish ing last. Silver' Rose, odds 'on,' won the 14 Hands event, and Albra the 14.2, while the concluding event of the day, Ap proved Stakes, 1 mile, went to Director, who won easily from Cavalry, favorite, and...
OLD-TIME MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
OLD-TIME MATCHES. In an article on 'Some Famous Matches,' reprinted in last week's Worker, reference was made to the match between Veno and Alice Hawthorne. The best description oi this, the most famous maitch in tho history of the Australian turf, is given in Mr. Griffiths' book 'Turf and Heath.' Here it is: — 'The year 1857 was an eventful one in the history of the Victorian turf. . Until the year men tioned the only racing club in Melbourne was the Victoria Turf Club; but this body failing to give general satisfaction, a new and stronger club — the Victorian Jockey Club— sprang^ into existence. The race course was vested in trustees, the gentle men holding office bsing Messrs. W. F. Stawell (afterwards Chief Justice), F. A. Powlett, J. G. Riddell, Dal Campbell, Jas. Simpson, and the Surveyor-General ex offi do. On the Jockey Club making formal application for the use of the course for a meeting in February, the trustees re fused the demand, to the intense indig nation of a large ...
KENSINGTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
KENSINGTON RACES. .Backers had a great day at the Ken sington meeting last week, as several favorites got home, and the racing was all that could be desired. A start was made with the 14.1 Handicap, five fur longs, and a newcomer in Sardine was the best favorite, but he ran unplaced, and The Cobblei\ well suippor-ted, won after a keen finish from Sirod and Bile Beans. Bay Donald, favorite, annexed the Flying Handicap, 5% furlongs, from Glitter, thoueh onlv by a very short margin. Al berto was third.. The Novice ? Handicap was run in divisions. Terrinallum was at a short price* .for the first, and he only won by a head from Fay, most people thinking the latter had won. School Girl beat Little Trent in the other division, and in the run off long odds were -laid on Terrinallum, but School Girl got ? to the front, and won nicely. Lady Norah, favorite, won the 13.3 race from Lord Elwyn, and Merton Queen won the 14.2 event from Odd Sock, on whom lotig odds were laid on pa'ssing the post. ...
KEEP THE GAME CLEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
KEEP THE GAME CLEAN. - If anyone has the misfortune to get 'outed' at one of the Sydney registered clubs,, he is not allowed in at the Asso ciated Racing Club meetings, but the re gistered clubs do not reciprocate, and it is no uncommon thing to see disqualified pony men at suburban and even Randwick meetings. The A.J.C. employs a detective to look after these matters, but he must go about the paaaocics wun jus eyea suut, or else it is a matter that the A.J.C. are very indifferent to. The registered clubs are a rich harvest for' all the disquali fied people, and 'tale tellers' that like to frequent them, and it is nearly time the various committee's employed some body who will deal with them. The one time well known racehorse Revolver, who has been doing stud duty at Iriglewood, Q., for some considez-able time, died recently. It is supposed that he succumbed to. snakebite.

EPSOM AND METROP. CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
EPSOM AND i^STEO?. CANDIDATES. : Eaci. week's racing in tlie dif-ererit States throws more light on the condition of the different candidates for the big . Spring events. Several were seen out -at Rosehill last Saturday. Son of the U:i.rsh proved he is pretty forward by running -a good second to Nuwara Eliya in the Flying Handicap, one mile, with 0.5. He has S.ll in the Epsom and 8.2 in the Metrop. No doubt Son of the Marsh can be made a little better by the day. Blue Book ran in the same race, but was not thought to be ready. He was a long1 way out of it at the half mile, but was running over the leaders at the finish. He carried 9.5, and has 8.8 in the Epsom and 8.6 in the Me tropolitan. After running a dead-heat for the last Caulfield 'Cup, he must be con sidered very well in. Post Town was a runner last Saturday, but did not show much form. Had Nuwara Eliya remained in the Epsom and Metrop. he would have had a good following. Didus showed fair form by easily win ning the Rosehil...

BROKEN HILL. Sheds in Full Swing. — Shortage 'of Shearers; Plenitude of Shed Hands. — Compensation Needed for Injured Bushmen. ; The sheds in the Barrier district havfa now practically all started, Mundi Mundi and Lake Dismal being the last. Reports which have come to hand show that there is a, slight shortage of shearers, but plenty of shed labor available, there being more than -50 men above requirements at one of the river sheds. This should suit those who, for purposes of their own, are ad vocating immigration. Shed reps, are re porting from all directions the success of the collection of the levy for this year, so that at the conclusion a good sum should be -placed to the credit of the daily paper.

How it murmurs, soft-scent-laden, Through the flower-clad forest trees. - See there where the sars'parilla Climbs that old dead white gum trunk, And the sun - throws creeping shadows . From it, right across my bunk. Early in the day, old fellow, They were playing round my head;^ WThen the shadows reach the shutters, Harry, I'll be with the dead. I've been thinking all the morning Just before you chaps came in, What- those people meant who tell us Each man must repent his sin. I have done no sin I know of, What is sin?

IMPORTANT NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 17 August 1910
IMPORTANT NOTICE. The State elections for N.S.W. will take place not later, and probably somewhat earlier, than the middle of October next. As large numbers of electors following the shearing industry will be absent from their electorates then, I would strongly urere all such who have already made en gagements covering that period, or who can now say in what electorates they ex pect to be in about that time, to at once communicate with me, so that early steps can be taken to have special polling booths proclaimed in the electorates they are going to, to enable them to record their votes. They will need to supply full particulars of their names and addresses, the electorates for which they are en rolled, and also, where possible, specify the names of the stations they will bo at, and where they have no such engagement the electorates -they purpose being in at that time. Much can be done in his way to mini mise the wholesale disfranchisement which will otherwise take place under the p...
