SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

-■ ■ » Our Wellington correspondent wires “Gage and Ellison, at the last moment, decided not to accompany the Natives north, so that the match against Taranaki for to-day will not come off. They play against Auckland on Saturday, and -then disband. The Natives speak highly of the Otago forwards, while several members of the Hawke’s Bay team, with whom I have conversed, are emphatically of opinion that the Otago team, as a whole, are the best they encountered in their tour. Taiaroa, of the Native team, intends settling at Napier. 1 ’ THE HUNT CLUB EACES. The following weights were declared today

THE NEW RACING RULES. [From Our Own Correspondent.] WELLINGTON, August 21. The revised racing rules, as adopted at a meeting of delegates held last week, hare just been issued. The number of meetings has been limited to five a year, and the average amount of stakes at LSOO per diem for those clubs holding five meetings, going down to LIOO per diem for those clubs which hold only one meeting annually. No limitation is made as to the amount of added money necessary where the clubs do no! use the totalisator. Every programme must be submitted to and approved by the Committee of the metropolitan club, who have power at their discretion to refuse their approval unless the programme is altered as they may direct, thus giving them the power to put a stop to pony or trotting meetings. The minimum weight for handicap hurdle races has been raised to 9at, and for steeplechases to 9.7. A new rule has been introduced which practically kills flat racing during the winter month?. This rule provides that during the months of June, July, and August the lowest weight in any race on the flat shall not be less than lOst. A new rule has been brought in limiting the duration of any race to twenty minutes, thus preventing the fiasco that is occasionally witnessed in Maiden Steeplechases and races of a similar character, when the horses get stuck up and do not finish for possibly half an Lour after the start. Among the rules bearing on corrupt practices is the disqualification of any person laying totalisator odds. Another important alteration is with regard to colors. Every owner registering his colors has the sole right in place of prior right to them. The qualifications of gentlemen riders are distinctly defined. Gentlemen riders must be proposed and seconded in writing by the members of the club, and any person who has received payment for work in connection with training or riding is debarred from acting. Rules have been adopted for governing steeplechase meetings, and a scale of weight for age races has been included. These alterations will certainly simplify many matters, and should prove acceptable to racing men generally.
