AUCKLAND, March 4. On Sunday the Rev. Jasper Calder, a young Anglican clergyman who is well-known here as " the sporting parson," delivered a special address to sporting men, the gist of which was that there should bo a stronger sympathy between active church workers and sporting men. Horse racing had come to\stay, and the preacher thought it would bo belter for the Church to accept the fact and endeavour to make the sport a good clean one than to display antagonism towards horse racing which would only alienate the sympathy of a large body of perfectly reputable men t connected with the I sport. . i This ciddro.-A -was considered at a 1 picetkig ci the Diocesan Social Questions Commission last evening, whor ciio following resolution was passed unanimously-—" That_thi?> Comniissio-a regrets and strongly disapproves of the pulpit utterances of the Rev. Jaspei Calder (us reported in the Press), on the betting evil." Intel-viewed to-day Mr Calder was reluctant to make any reply to the Commission, which, he said, was doing much excellent and very useful work. " But as regards the gambling evil and racing generally." he said, " the voice of the ooinmihSKin seems Lo show that they have taken an entirely one-sided view. I believe I have had enough experience of racing myself to give both sides of the question. Until one cm do this one is bound to find n difficulty in gaining the sympathy of the sporting man in one's efforts."
