POSTLE BEATS DAY. (Received 8.30 a.m.) JOHANNESBURG, March 21. In a race at Johannesburg yesterday for the 220 yds professional sprinting championship of the world and £220, A. B. Postle, the Queensland runner,' defeated B. R. Day, the Irish champion, the time returned being 235. Postle beat Day in a series of three sprints for the world's championship in Australia, but in England the Irishman, who visited this city a couple of years ago, beat him rather easily by a yard in a quarter-mile match. Postle, however, does not claim to be a champion at distances beyond 300 yds. The time for the race on Saturday, 235., is on the slow side for runners of the calibre of Day and Postle.
