In commenting on the evidence given in Christchurch in connection with the running of Dudu and Sultan in the Wellington and Dunedin Cups, the ‘Canterbury Times’ suggests that an inquiry should be held by a neutral club, the C.J.C., in order that the other side may be brought out. Our contemporary says: —“ We have seen Cutts, and his explanation, as we expected, throws a somewhat different complexion on the affair. He noticed, what was generally admitted, that Sultan was backward in condition, and would have no chance against Dudu in the Wellington Cup. He said to Piper he was sorry ho had not seen Mr Hammond before leaving Christchurch, and proposed that Dudu should go to Wellington, while Sultan completed his preparation for Dunedin. He was so satisfied of Sultan’s ability, when well, to beat Dudu at the Dunedin Cup weights, that he would gladly agree to divide the stakes won by the two horses. There was no suggestion that either horse should be run except on its merits. The proposal was to withdraw Sultan from the Wellington Cup and Dudu from the Dunedin Cup, and the owners “cut up” the stakes won. As things turned out, Sultan was actually benefited by his gallops at Wellington, and ran a much improved horse at Forbnry three weeks later. Cutts has all possible proofs that his mare was run to win in both engagements, and has adopted a very proper course in asking the Committee of the Canterbury Jockey Club to inquire into the matter." Tho Hon. James White’s racehorses have arrived at Home in good condition.
The Auckland Rowing Association met last night, and considered a letter from the New Zealand Rowing Association, requesting them to affiliate with the latter body. A sub-committee was appointed to test the feeling of members on the subject. Our football readers who sent in coupons have pronounced by a decided majority in favor of tho following team to do battle against the Maoris next week Full-back, Thomas; three-quarters—Downes, Turnbull, and Davie j halves—M'lntyre and Crawford; forwards—A. Morris, Gibscn (captain), Beck, Allan, W. Gibson, Isaac?, Torrance, Tattersall, Stephenson. In several papers Claffey was preferred as fullback, Thomas being assigned the position of wing player, Restieaux had a large call as a half-back, whilst in many papers among the forwards were found the names of Robertson, W, M'Farlane, Sonntag, C. Morris, and Wright, in that order. The Danedin Chess and Draughts Club’s annual handicap tourney, which nas been in progress for some weeks past, is still going on. The club’s meetings continueto be well attended, and, as a consequence, several players in the tourney have nearly finished
their games. Much interest is evinced in the forthcoming team match Married v. Single.
Tbe racing clubs’ delegates meeting at Wellington decided nor to make the result of their deliberations public at present.
