Acceptances for the first day's racing of the.Avondale Jockey Club's Autumn Meeting close with the secretary, Mi , H. H. Hayr, on Friday next, the 16th Inst., at 9 p.m. F. Howard, who received a nasty shaking when Noteorini fell with him in the Maiden Hurdle Race at Ellerslle yesterday, got off Eblis, which ran secoad, in order to ride Noteorini. Such is the luck of the game. Mr T. H. Lowry's horses. Downfall, Merriwa. and Chanteuse. and the-mare Cantata, recently purchased by Mr £.owry, are to be shipped South to-morrow by the Rarawa from Onehunga, in charge of T. O'Brien. Turbine's showing In the Tourist Handicap at Ellerslie yesterday, in which , he dendheated with Rarata, was a big surprise to his conne?tlons, in fact I overheard his owner want to bet a modest half-crown that he would be last. C. JKicbolson lias notified the Auckland Racing Club that he does not intend to go on with the appeal lodged on his behalf against the life disqualification inflicted by the Avondale Jockey Club upon himself and the horse JJuclo. Three cup winners In Downfall (New Zealand cup). All Red (Auckland cup), and Sir Prize (late Kllmarnock) (Wanganui cup), contested the Autumn Handicap at Elleralle, but whereas the two former fought out a great finish, the latter was absolutely last. After Creusot won the Antnmn Steeplechase at Ellerslle on Monday several wouldbe purchasers were after the son of Torpedo, but his owner refused to put a price on him. Crensot's victory was his first over big country, and no one will begrudge H. Howe his success, as it Is a lone time since he hiirt basked in Fortune's smile. The hearing of the appeal to the New Jfeiiland Racing Conference w y the Avondale; Jockey Club against the Auckland Metropolitan Committee, In connection with the 1 disqualification of N. Cunningham, i s f xe( j for the 22nd Inst., at Wellington: It Is understood that judgment will also" , be given In the Royal Soult case. The sad accldent.at Rlcearton on Mondaylast, which resulted In the death of. W. O'Connell. removes from the ranks of crosscountry horsemen one of its leading lights. "Willie," as the deceased rider was familiarly called, was of « genial disposition and very popular nmongst his associates. A first-Ola?? horseman, he wns very unlupky. and hnd numerous severe falls, anil. In conversation with the writer about twelve , months ago. after having had a nasty shaking at Dunedln.. stated'that be> was serlonsv' ly thinking of giving the game best, but> unfortunately did not do so. His brothers,' John ana Jerry, are also well known horseman, and, by a strange - coincidence, thY former's monnt, Waipu, 'ell at the Inst' fence In the Brighton Hurdle Race at EllersHβ on the earae day as Stronghold fell at the Inst - fence at Rlcearton. AUCKLAND RACING CLUB'S AUTUMN MEETING, The concluding day's racing In connection with the A.R.C. autumn meeting took place at Bllerslle yesterday. The weather was beautiful, and there was a large attendance, who were rewarded with probably the most interesting racing seen at Ellerslie for some time, and the handicapper (Mr. G. Morse) has' to-- be heartily congratulated on the success of his efforts. A.i on the previous days, no fault could be found with the management of the gathering, tho various officials, under the secretary (Mr. J. F. Hartland), getting through their respective duties in up-to-date style. THE TOTALISATORS. , „ Speculation was brisk' and;: during afternoon, the staff of Messrs. H. X Hayr and" Co. handled the sum of £15;324'10/, which Is an increase of £1552 : 10/ on the corresponding- day last year. This' amount; i added to that put through on the first two days, mokes a grand total of .£42,994, 10/, a decrease of £217 oxr last year's total. In addition, £1660 10/ was received in' •bookmakers' fees for the meeting. TBB STEWARDS. During the afternoon- the*stewards- had a number, of cases, of alleged tote betting before them, which were dealt with.- in the usual manner while after the Buckland Handicap they had McMillan, the rider of Santa Rosa, before them for interference with Tamainupo, but, after consideration, decided not - to disturb the judge's verdict. THE RACIXCf. The opening event, the Maiden Hurdle Race, was a chapter of accidents, Pleiades falling at the first fence, Melton. Hall at the second, and Noteorini (which was a warm favourite) at the third. These miahaps only left four in; the race, and Wellcast had no difficulty in winning easily at the finish from Eblis. The Gore Brown Handicap only brought out six contestants, but the finish was worth, going- a long way. to see.i the favourite (All's Well) eventually winning by a head from Tattoo and MichaelofE, which the judge was unable to separate. Tuku Tuku and Fleet Arrow were solidly supported for the Onslow Stakes, but neither succeeded in catching the judge's eye, He* Volt scoring by the narrow margin of a neTik from ■ Tuku Tuku, with Impulsive in third position. Another great race was witnessed In the Autumn Handicap, All Red securing a meritorious victory by a head: from Downfail, which ran a good race , and .was unlucky to be beaten. Ben Jonson showed himself up in attractive colours In. the St. Heller's Hurdle Race, which he won from end to end with the good weight of 11.0 in the saddle. The surprise of the gathering eventuated in the Buckland Handicap, i when Santa Rosa outed a warm favourite in Tamainupo and paid a substantial dividend. In the Tourist Handicap there was another , surprise, three outsiders fighting out a desperate finish, the judge- having to bracket Turbine and 'Barata, with, the third (Aimwell) a head away. The concluding- event fell' to- Spate, after a. good race l with WadhaJrUj with the favourite (Deloga-te) in third position-. ST. HOMER'S: HTTBDLE RACE (Handicap) of 200eovs. Two miles. C.

B. Reid ,at £70. I understand-the daughter of Clanranald and Weathereye will tie put to the stud next season. When. Stronghold fell • in the hurdle race at Rlcearton on the Monday, It-was. at once apparent that'his rider, w; O'Connell. was serionsly huTt: He was removed with, all dispatch- to the- Christehurch ; Hospital, but the r doctors recognised- his- case' as , , hopeless from the flrst, and, he died at five- o'clock on Tuesday morning; without-having regained'consciousness: O'Connell was.in the first flight: of steeplechase riders; and was deservedly popular wsth? all. who, knew; him.

The juvenile, which has just been broken In, bears a strong, resemblance to his: brother; Bonifonni j The weather-was: beautifully/fine for the Canterbury Jodcey Club's autumn meeting; while the convjpclng ground has never shown to greater .advantage, at this time of the year. The opposition of the North Island meetings, had a, prejudicial effect on the attendance,, which., was confined mainly to local sportsmen. There were few prominent visiting owners in ■ attendance, even Mr. Bid well faling to share in the success of his fine colt Prpvocatioa to. the Champagne Stakes. The racing was fairly Interesting, and' though Armlet ana Provocation, registered- easy wins-in the two big events, the merits, of their performances stood' out as amongst the best ever wit nessed at Rlcearton. $£1. -Piper's! starting was of his best, while all the other officials got through their duties-most efficiently; With,.£B42. collected in. bookmakers' fees and' ; an increase of' £2227- in tote receipts, the meeting should turn , oiif a' bljf financial success. Racing commenced.inanspldonely, for Just when Snip and Stronghold appeared ' to have the Issue of the Kildare Hurdles Handicap to themselves; the latter fell at the last obstacle, the. mishap also bringing Snip to grief -, thereby. _ allowing Southern Cross to score a,lucky tvin by ten lengths. Half-a-dozen high-class two-year-olds went out to contest the : Champagne 'Stakes; for which Provocation and. Nautiform ware In most demand.
