THE MURDER OUT.
HOW THE DUNEDIN CUP WAS TO HAVE BEEN "FIXED UP."
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
CHRISTCHURCH, July 30.
A case is now progressing in the Resident Magistrate's Court in which H. Piper (late trainer of Sultan) claims from Mr C. Hood Williamß, owner of the horse, commission on the stake on the Dunedin Cup. Piper admitted, in cross-examination, that E. Cutts, owner of Dudu, had proposed during the Wellington meeting to "cut up" the Wellington and Dunedin Cups between Dudu and Sultan. Piper drafted a letter to Mr Williams conveying the proposal, but he states that after showing a copy to W. White, the jockey, he determined not to send it. Piper protests that the races were decided on their merits.
White, the jockey, in his evidence states that after riding Sultan in the Wellington Cup he remarked to Piper " The horse is well stuffed."
