At a meeting of the Wellington District Committee on Monday, the inquiry into the Avondflle incident was concluded. The lockey, l>. Man-son, was suspended for the remainder of the season for breaking an engagement to Tide, ana for refusing to attend a meeting of the stewards of the Avondaje Club. The jockeys, A. and IK. ■Iteed were severely censured for breaking an engagement to rldo.

He regretted there had been friction in the past t>e"twepu the caretaker and trainers, anrt said surely they had enough trouble without a little matter like this. '--God only knows," he concluded, "wiinf with jockeys, and one thing and another, there Is plenty of trouble without any with the trainers."
Times are not officially taken at Jfew-1 market. ICneland, an<l this lias led to the accuracy erf the 1.44 3-3 announced for the Two Thousand Guineas being fflepnted. A writer in a London peper made the following references to tfhe subject:—"You cannot expert to time a race which starts » mile away from you wifh unfailing accuracy. You see white flag drop. ont that may not occirWiutll a second or two after the horses are on the move. Nor, unless you are in a true line with the Judge's box, can you depend upon timing the -winner passing the post to within a f*w fractions of a second. I raise tbto iirtercirtlng point because all tbe Jockeys who rode in the "Bwo Thousand Gulneee were, wltbont exception, nnder toe topresalon that It was a remarkably faitt race. Yet the time is recorded In Cne 'Sportsman , as 1.44 3-5. The 'Special Commissioner , of tne same paper gave it as 1.4 a 3-.i. One sportsman who timed tbe race from the Jockey ■Club stand (and was time nearer the whining poet than the representatives of the 'Press) made it 1.39 4-5. Whh* of <** three was correct? I am inclined to accept the fastest time. I cannot imagine sucti horses as Orpheus, Daylight, Patrol, lacrosse, and Silvern being done with in the Dip if the race had really been slowly run. The going was fairly good i»l there was a tolerably high wind following tlie horses. Altogether I think it reasonable to suppose that the pace set by Tetratema was unusually warm, and he kept it up practically to the end. , ' ACGICL.AND RACINXJ OL.CB. The annual meetm* of the Auckland Racing Club is fixed for Monday. Ancuat 2. Nominations for president, vice-president, fire committcemen, and three steward* close with the secretary, Mr. W. 8. Spence, en •Saturday, the loth mitt., at 12 noon. The retiring menrbers of committee are Messrs. S. Bradley, F. Earl, M. McCaßnm. Nicholson, and H. 0. Ndlan. all of wham «re eligible for re-election. CANTERBURY. (Special to "Star.") OHRtSTCHTJiaCa, Tnesday. Tt. Iyongley has decided not to persereTe with iFrangranni, which has been bleeding at the nose of late. This gelding will be returned to Ms owner for a lengthy spell. Cerberus, from tbe same .'table, is to be turned ont for n six months' rest. North Sea, ■which has been spelling during the last three months, has been ►taken In hand by 'R. Longley, and will be put Into work during the next few days. That good galloper Koesian, which was ■flred and turned out some time ago, wMI be put into work again In the course of a Tew days. This gelding is In great nick to commence a preparation, and Longler should win a race or two with him this season. ■GayJight will be a competitor at the Wellington Winter Meeting, providing that in the meantime the transport difficulties can be overcome. P. Christmas has just returned from a visit to Wellington, having gone North to confer with Mr. 11. W. Brown, with regard to the racing of ■Arrowamlth, Loyal Arch and €0., during their owner's visit to England, Christmas journeyed to Tanherenlkau, and .had a look at some of his patron's horses there. It is probable that his string at Riccarton will be still further Increased in the near fnturc. Khartoum was scratched to-day for all engagements at the C.J.C. National Meeting. F. Carmont is back from his trip to the North Island, and will superintend the training of Master Strowan for his engagementx at tlie Grand National IMeettng next month. 'Master Strowan •)>■« not t.i*«i» bußtled along of late, but there Is uotning wrong with him on the point of condition. Two well-bred two-year-olds In W. (Hibberd's sta't>l<\ Cambrel by Abwird— Remission 11. and Will "Prosper by Absurd— iSunelow, are likely winners during the coming season. Up to tbe present they speed In their'track work. (Hlbberd has recently had an addition to his team In the shape of a gelding by General Symons— Saln-t 'Tlarlo mare. . He has also taken- In hand the three-year-old flHy St. Leaven by Achilles— Lady 'Maorlna, and has returned the rwo-year-old flily by Masterpiece— Prayer Wheel to her owner. L. Hatrerty Is at present exercising a three-year-old fllly by Calibre, which shows quite a lot of pace on the tracts. He had also in hand a fllly o>y Cronstadt—Holyrood, which may turn out useful. It Is more than probable that the Wlngatul trainer G. Re-id will move to Riccarton in tbe near future.
