TO THE EDITOR,
Sir, —I am pleased to see that the members of the Coursing Club are determined to have no other events at their next meeting than tho Waterloo Cup, as I am aware of several owners who have held back their dogs, although inferior dogs are entered just for the sake of encouraging the sport. If there is a meeting held during next month all those that are entered for the Waterloo will also enter for that meeting, and then the stakes would be worth mnning for; but if there is another event at this meeting there would only be a few entries, because those thirty-seven that are in the Waterloo could not compete. The gate money for those extra few nominators would only be a few shillings more, whereas if it was a big event later on all would attend, and the “gate” would amount to something handsome.—l am, etc., Nimrod. Dunedin, June 17.
