Pohutu is reportec to be going very well on the tracks. The Avondale Jockey Club has decided t< appeal to the conference In connection witt the llfo disqualification imposed on S.

Sharinan. .The wet weather has greatly hampered Mr V>\ Casey, the contractor for the new .■members'- stand at ?!Herslle', and the .pco"babllltles'are, Indging from present appearances, the building will not. be completed In time for use at the forthcoming A.B.C. Autumn Meeting. F. Davis was expected to arrive' yesterday with Mr. T. H. Lowry'a horaes Downfall, Chanteuse, and Merrlwa, but, owing to the rough weather, it was, deemed Inadvisable to ship them from New' Plymouth. M the weather is at all favourable, they will be brought to Onehnnga by the Rarawa to-morrow. . . . . .. '.' : Mr. .T. Watson, who came across to Inspect Master Soult, on behalf of his would-be purchaser, paid a visit to Napier last week, and. purchased The Cockatoo for 500gns. The son of The Possible was brought to 'Auckland by the Main Trunk express last Sunday, and is at present in F. Hill's chnrge. It is understood he - will be shipped to Sydney on Monday next. There was no work of "Importance on the traick6 at EUerslie this, morning, the whole I of the horses being restricted to steady pacing. Most of the local horsas engaged at the A.H.C. Autumn Meeting are well forward in condition, and the work oh the tracks between now and the opening of the gathering will probably ba more of th? useful than sensational order. After an illness extending over several months, the well known Randwick trainer, William Brenuau, died at his residence, "Graftondelle," Randwick on March 22. Mi Brenrian was one of the'qldest-establlshed trainers In the State, and had trained many good winners In his time. T?rjqr to starting for himself, the deceased gentleman wns as Boclated for a number of years with Mr B. De Mestre, when the-tatter's stable sheltered Navigator, Bobloeon, Crusoe, Kobln Hood and other good horses. Alchemist ane Bravo were in Mr Brunnan'g charge 'foi several seasons and both made a name foi themselves on the turf. In later years, Mi Brennan trained for the gentleman. wh< races as "Mr W." T. Npwlah," and won foi him two Summor Cups and the Australlai Cup with Blue Metal. ( ", Mr. I. G. Duncan has decided to Bend t< Sydney foi' the Easter sales a ; number pi high-class brood mares, and; 'taking Intc consideration the high prices given:by Aue truliim buyers for. brood maree at tin xaldhurst sale last August, there should b< keen bidding ,at Randwick for those fron Woikanae. Arrangements have been mad< for the mares to be railed down froli Waikanae on Thuredey morning, April 8 and they will leave for Sydney the sam< evening by the Manuka, In charge of A Cochrane. The shipment will comprise th< following lots:—Astolet (Boyal ArtHleryBelllcent (In foal to Charlemagne-11. J Petti coat (Multiform—Bloomer}.

In connection with thi licensing of bookmakers, I have credibli information that some time was spent b; the officials of the Trotting Club in en deavouring to get at the boha-fides of thosi applying-for licenses, but the difficulty t this: The men who are carrying on thi welshing on the difjerent courses are travel ling from place to place under as fiumed names, using one '.' at on< place and another 1 at another, an< therefore, are yerjr,. hard to detect. Th matter is becoming a serious one, and 1 allowed to be carried on much longer wil do' racing, considerable harm. The A:R,C autumn, meting is approaching, and what would suggest Iβ this: That the Metropollta; Oommittee set up a snb-commlttee who, wit! the aid of" the club's private detective, couli have' all 'tbe.appilcantn before them pet sonally before, granting licenses. This woul not only protect the. racing public, bu would be a good guide for the clubs' rac ing under the Metropolitan body, for if man was. unable, to seuuro a license fror tjia cpvernlng. club,, he would have n ctance of betting at'the other elu.be , gathet Inga; 'Jt 1 may'takA p, little 'trbable, bi>t WpOld }Jke te point:out that Uf the power tbit be ate net xtff; oarefal, «n •gltatlo acainsc tdtalulatoF.

This precluded any fast work being done for a ' couple of mornings, but, as all the local 0 horses are well forward In condition the efv g fects will be more beneficial than otherwise. b FHtaway, one ot the best fancied candi--0 dates for the Great Eastern Handicap, has c been responsible tor some rare gallops, and f I never caw her in sneh heart as at present.
