He relates an incident which took place .at the Warrnambool course. He was sitting in a buggy sit the fence about twenty yards from the winning post when two horses; racing neck and neck, led in a jumping field. Suddenly one of the ,riders, a fashionable one of the time, put his foot under the other rider's foot and tossed him clean. out of the saddle on to the ground. The victim jumped :up, and holding up his hand called out: "You all saw that" to the people close .by. The culprit was, of course ,disqualifled.

COUNCIL DEBATE ON LIQUOR LICENSE AT SHOW GROUNDS Discussing an application from the Frankston Agricultural Asso- ciation for permission to have a liquor licence at the Frankston Park, when the Association's An- nual Show is held in January, members of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council said they had an open mind, on the matter. Moving a resolution that the re- quest be granted, Cr. Miles said it was time the wowser community woke up to the fact that the restriction of drink made for drun- kenness and beastliness. If the same restrictions were put on tea drinking as were imposed on alcoholic beverages, similar beastli- ness would be seen. Enforcing people to drink in re- &nbsp; stricted places at restricted times was doing the wrong thing. On show days he had seen a parade of people from the show grounds to the hotels. &nbsp; &nbsp; They had to rush their drinks be- fore they could get back. Supporting Cr. Mills' motion, Cr. Sage said he had attended mos...
