AUCKLAND TROTTING. CLUB'S ! AUTUMN MEETING. ATTEMPTS AT RECORD FAIL. The opening day's racing in connection with the Auckland Trotting Club's autumn meeting took place at Epsom on Saturday last. The weather was dull and threatening, but, lortunatelT, no rain fell The course wag holding after the rain of Friday, and -was all against fast times. The attendance was large. Mr. Ike Hill officiated as Judge, Messrs. F. W. Edwards and G. Head as timekeepers, and Mr. C. O'Connor as starter. The latter gentleman wa s as successful as usual, but, owing to some of the competitors in the Middle Class and Electric Trot trying to beat the clock, there was a false start In each event, while in -he pony race too much consideration waa shown Nora Soult, which was very fractious and delayed the etart for some considerable time. Aβ the pony in question carried 2st and lib overweight, it was evident that her connections did not esteem her chance too highly, and that she was allowed to upset the field in the manner she did was hardly fair. Mr. O'Connor is altogether lenient with this class of animal. r lhe management of the gathering, under the secretary (Mr. C. F. Mark) was in keeping with the club's reputation, everything passing off without a hitcli. Mr. 1. King hud charge of the luncheon arrangements, and during the afternoon the Garrison Band, under Bandmaster G. P. Cater, played a. number of selections on the lawn in front of the stand. THE TOTALISATORS. With a good attendance, speculation was naturally brisk, the machines, under Messrs. W. Blomfield and Co., handling the sum of £2683, which is an increnee of £193 on last year's amouut. In addition, £210 was received in bookmakers' fees. THE BOOKMAKERS. Another case of welshing, which Is fact becoming fnshionable, occurred after the sixth race, won by the favourite (Manderene), and a mild riot occurred, which might have developed into something serious but for the kindly interference of the police, who rescued the welsher from hia victims. Once more has to be pointed out the unfairness of the clubs In licensing nil and sundry who choose to apply, and it would probably be as well if they recognised the fact that the frequent eases of welshing are not doing racing any good, and they may wake up some day to the fact that thel".' actions have caused a strong antito'.e feeling nmongst the public. Amongst the victims on Saturday was a prominent official of the club, and his falling in with the rest luay eventually be a blessing in disguise. THE RECORD. The feature of the afternoon's sport was undoubtedly the attempts at the mile record by the Christchurch horse Lord Elmo and the local crack Specialist. The state of the track was all against fast times, but Lord Elmo made a great effort, and under anything like favourable conditions is sure to get the time stipulated. Starting off at bis second attempt, and paced by the hurdle horse The Stroller, 3ie ran the first quarter in 345, the half in 1.8, the six furlonps In 1.40 4-5, and the fnll mile in 2.20. Rounding the home turn Lord Elmo made a skip, which probably cost him the record. Specialist was not so successful, and his time (2.27 1-5) Is some six seconds below what he has already shown on the track. His first quarter took 375, the half 1.14, six furlongs 1.49 2-5, and the full mile After the trials tho committee met, and, with commendable enterprise in the Interest of trotting, offered the two horses another cnaiice of securing the purse of which has beer, accepted by the owners, and they will both make another attempt on Wednesday next. With anything like decent going, it is the general opinion that Lord Elmo Is sure to get the stipulated time. STEWARDS' HANDICAP of 70sovs. Distance, two miles. C. R.
