Ono of tho Maori football team admits that he received LSO to lose the match on Saturday, and had the game continued for another half-hour Brisbane would have won.
At last night's meeting of the Games and Grounds Committee of the Caledonian Society it was announced that Mr Ogg had made a further donation of L 5 to the prize fund for the Exhibition bagpipe competition. The revision of the programme for the gathering was continued, the principal alterations being the addition of a youths' 440 yds obstacle race and a two-mile race in place of the five-mile handicap race on the second day of the sports. In a recent senior football match at Sydney between the University A team and the Walleroos, the former won by 54 points to nil, which is the largest number of points ever recorded in a match in that colony. Coursers are reminded that nominations close this evening for the Champion Stakes, Maiden Stakes, and Sapling Stakes at the Dunedin Forbury meeting, to be held next month.
