This popular yearly gathering came off yesterday, on the new ground, about a quarter of a mile from the railway station. The Winslow sports are always popular, for while there is a good deal to see at them there is nothing to pay—the festival is free to all. A large number of visitors put in an appearance yesterday, the express train south being crowded with holiday-makers, while the special train leaving Ashburton about an hour later was filled with more excursionists. Th 0 shops in town were till closed, and the town presented a most empty appearance; in fact the sports at Winslow, Wakanui, Methven, and Chertsey, drained the place of nearly its entire population. During the day traps innumerable arrived at Winslow, and by noon the ground presented a very animated appearance. Host Harris of the Railway Hotel had a spacious wooden booth erected just opposite the winning-post, and appeared to be doing a large business, for the weather was hot enough to render the consumption of “ long” liquors not only excusable but necessary. Adjoining the publican’s booth was a big refreshment booth run by Mr W. T. Davison of the Town Hall, whose array of fruit, confectionery, and cooling drinks attracted a host of customers during the day. The Ashburton brass band arrived by the special train, and speedily struck up some lively music, which had such an effect on the feet of sundry couples near that they very quickly lommenced dancing, much to their gratification and that of a large concourse of spectators, who watched the performance with great apparent interest, and even went so far as to throw in a word of encouragement now and again when they thought it was wanted. The weather was very hot but tempered by a light breeze which sprang up at intervals during the day. In spite of “ the Act ” being now in in force, a good many sweeps were got up and successfully carried through. The general arrangements were very satisfactory, but we would suggest (if we may be permitted to do so) that next year the committee should erect something in ' the shape of a grand stand, for what with .the scattered traps and express vans and the crowds of people, it was no easy matter yesterday to follow the horses as they went round the course. We are sure that the committee would recoup themselves for any outlay incurred in erecting the stand, as numbers of people would no doubt be found only too ready to patronise it, at a small charge per head. The utmost order prevailed throughout the day, and everyone seemed deter mined having come out, to go in for all the enjoyment possible. The horse races came off first, the first race, the handicap hurdle, taking place about twelve o’clock. Besides the five races on the cards there were a hurryscurry and a pony race, and the athletic sports did not, consequently commence till three o’clock. The following were the results: — Handicap Hurdle Race ; If mile, over six flights of hurdles, 3ft. 6in. Prize, 12 sovs. Mr Seager’s ch m Cigarette, list 71b (Kelly) 1 Mr Cuthbert’s b m Butterfly, lOst 71b (Scott) 2 Louehand was the favorite, but failed to justify the confidence of his backers. He got the best of the start, Butterfly keeping him close company, the rest in a cluster close up. Lonehand was the first to negotiate the first hurdle, Butterfly second, but at the second hurdle Lonehand baulked; Lady Gladys followed his example ; Cigarette went over in good style, with Butterfly keeping her company, the pair maintaining their respective positions to the finish ; Lonehand and Lady Gladys nowhere. Winslow Cup (Handicap) ; mile. First horse, 20 sovs. ; second horse to save his stakes. Mr James’ b g Steamer, Bst 71b • (Harris) . 1 Mr Lewis’ b g Sandy, Bst V J. Lewis) 2 Mr Smith’s b m Minnie, 9st 71b (Owner) 3
This was the principal event of the day. The whole of the horses again faced the starter, Minnie being a hot favorite, she having pulled off the Cup for years in succession. Steamer also had his admirers. A good start was effected. Steamer getting the best of it, Minnie being second and Sandy third, Moro and Lass lying a couple of lengths to the rear. Mr Smith appeared to fancy that the race was a moral for Minnie, but despite his efforts to get on terms with Steamer, the latter was too good for the marO, and held the premier position right round the course for the whole distance. During the second round Sandy, who had been creeping up, dropped into the second place, Minnie falling back. On entering the straight for home, Steamer was about three lengths ahead, Sandy trying all he knew to overtake him. Harris now began to whip Steamer, and Lewis followed suit with Sandy, but, despite the efforts of the latter, Steamer shot in a winner by a length, amidst considerable excitement.
Trotting Race (Handicap); 2 miles. Prize, L 5. Mr J. Martin’s Titokowaru (scr.) ... 1 Mr Jephson’s blk gDarkie (200yd5.)... 2 Mr Lewis’ b g Inker man (150yds.) ... 3 The scratch horse went steadily to work, and, thanks to Darkie breaking on the post, shot in an easy winner, Inkerman a good third. Maiden Plate ; 1 mile ; weight for age. Prize, 5 sovs. Mr H. Muir’s b h Pirate, 4yrs, 9st (J. Smith) 1 Mr Journeaux’s b f Remnant, 3yrs, Bst 41b 2 Mr Hooper’s Butcher Boy, aged, 9st 21b 3 Nancy Lee, Granny, Oddfellow, Brush, and Britannia also ran. This was one of the beat races of the day, and was watched with keen interest. Pirate very soon showed his companions a clean pair of heels, leading the way at a rattling pace right round the course, all the others being in a cluster. Coming up the straight for home Remnant’s jock was whipping hard, but could not oust Pirate, who won a close race by about half a length. Consolation Race, 1 mile ; 5 sovs. Mr Lewis’ b g Sandy (Lewis) 1 Mr Lawson’s b ra Brittania 2
Remnant also ran. Sandy led from the start, and won as he liked. Remnant bolted off the course early in the race, and was out of it. Sandy walked up the straight. A hurry scurry was won by Mr Lewis’ pony Jenny, with Oddfellow second. Jenny led the whole distonoe, and won easily. A private race between ponies owned by Mr J. Carter and Mr Lewis resulted in a victory for the letter. This brought the horse raoeing to a close, and the athletic events were at once proceeded with.

The Race Ball- I This ball came off at the conclusion of , j the sports in the spacious grain store ; near the Winslow Railway Station belong-..' S ing to Mr John Grigg, and kindly lent by '• him for the occasion. The hall waa | decorated in an exceedingly tasteful way | with fresh green leaves and bunches of I toi-toi grass hanging in festoons from the’ a ceiling. The walls were prettily decorated | with flags. The floor had been properly J prepared for the occasion. At the fair end 1 Mr W. T. Davison had a refreshment counter, and opposite to this a ladies’ cloak 1 room was improvised. The music was 1 supplied by the Ashburton brass band, j and dancing was kept up until the bright -- sunshine superseded- the candle-light, j and warned the dancers that it was,, time to break up. In fact it was nearly five o’clock before the affair was over, and the band getting into town about an-hour later struck up two or three airs in front of Shearman’s Hotel before dispersing.
METHVEN. About 800 people witnessed these sports, i which came off yesterday in paddocks ■ placed at the disposal of the by Messrs Anderson and Patton. The weather was beautifully fine, the unwel- j come nor’-wester being conspicuous by his j absence, and in his stead was a gentle ; breeze just sufficient to pleasantly leaitßßf* the warmth of the sun’s rays, The various members of the Committee did their best to make the gathering a success, and ■ may be congratulated on aucceediag_jnoat thoroughly.. Some shortcomings, of course there were, but they were due to a want of organisation on the part of the various officials, and not to any lack of zeal. The “ force ’’ was represented by Constables Rouse and Daly, but ‘their positions were the merest the . utmost good humor and good order i characterising the day’s proceedings. J Mr T. H. Jackson officiated as starter' the horse races, and Mr Compton ; acted .in a j like capacity for the pedestrians. -Mr j Coward was clerk of the. course, ’ Mr Morgan clerk of the scales, and Mr 'Robin- ' son judge. Before passing on to the results of the various eve its we must not. omit to thank Mr Compton and the courteous = secretary, Mr Hemingway, for the assist- X ance which they kindly rendered to cor i representative. During the day a num'.:»& of prizes were given away for juvenile) competition, and the youngsters appeared* to enjoy themselves thoroughly.

Winnie re . peated her previous performance, and although Mr Tickle did all he knew with ! the illicit trader, he could not make th -2 winner eitend herself, and she won T.itl. greatest ease, a good race ensuing fee, third place between Needle and Loo. former getting the best of a ratJinii finish. -k This concluded the horse events on the i programme, and the majority of the spectators adjourned to the paddock where 1 the athletic sports were to take place; but a private match was arranged between i Mr McHenry's Lady Emma and Mx Heer’s John, the namesake of the Autumn Handicap winner (piloted by Asherma' winning comfortable by about for lengths. 100 Yards Race (men). —There werej fifteen entries for this event, which was run in heats, Gilmour and Roberta filling the situations in the first heat, anu Anderson and Morsehead in the second. In the final heat Anderson was the to breast the tape, followed by M< head. In connection with this occurred the only unpleasantness of meeting, Roberts protesting against start. Anderson certainly had the of a not very good start, but the go was given, and we believe the mittee did not entertain the protest 1 Hop, Step, and Jump.—Three 5
peted for this event, Lambert getting farthest (38ft. 9in.) and securing first prize, Anderson (38ft. Sin.) being second. | 200 Yards Eace (men).—Eight toe'l the aiark for this race, and were despatched on their journey to a very good start, A nderson again having slightly the best of it, and increased his advantage, winning uasily, Emerson being his immediate attendant.

The fourth annual sports meeting came off very successfully in this rising township on a reserve close to the railway station yesterday. The ground was free from dust, the running track cleared from tussocks, and seats provided for the ladies and the little ones. The committee and their indefatigable secretary are to be congratulated on their arrangements. There was a Very good attendance, and everyone seemed to enjoy their outing.

fence and made for home as fast as they possibly could. The following are t the P Hurdle Race, 1J miles—Mr Crowds Don, 1; Mr Thompson’s Jockey,* 2.
