Keith was supported for a small amount at 100 to 12 without exhausting the market; 1,000 to 35 was laid three times about Lockßley for the A.J.C. Derby, and 6 to 4 was laid on the field without'leading to much business. At a meeting of the General Committee of the O.R.F.U. last evening it waß decided to have a football tournament on Saturday, the 28th inst., in aid of the funds of the Dunedin Hospital. The idea is to have a series of seven or nine men a-side games, each game lasting ten or fifteen minutes. The teams entering will be drawn to play each other, the winners of the various rounds to play off until onjy two teams are Jeft in the final, the winners of the final will receive trophies. ' ; The Sydney Harriers are likely to send a team of amateur pedestrians to take part in the New Zealand Amateur Championship meeting, which will be held here on DecemMi'W. F. Ford, of Brooklyn, recently cleared 56ft 7stn in five standing broad jumps. This is the best performance ever done by an amateur or professional. Connor, the wrestler, is dead. Hearn's friends at Wellington are bestirring themselves in his interest and arranging means for providing tho necessary stake for bis race with Stephenson. At present the Wanganui River is talked of as the probable loeah, but the Blenheimites have suggested the Wairau. Wolverine, Tenakoe, and Waitangi leave for Tiroaru to-morrow morning. • At a meeting of the stewards of the Jockey Club, held last evening,, it was resolved—"That the riders of Erebus and Tramp be informed of their misconduct in racing home after running round one of th« jumpß in the Hunt Club Cap, and that they are liable to bo brought before the stewards and heavily fined for the same, and that any repetition of such conduct on the Dunedin course will subject the riders to a Bevere censure and a heavy fine."—A letter was received from Alexander Campbell, who had made a comrtlaitit against the bookmakers Asherand Woods on Friday last, for not paying him a bet in accordance with totalisator odds as laid, Btating that they had now paid the debt and asking the Club to remove' th 9 disqualification. It was resolved that the application be declined, and that Mr Campbell be informed that it was a mistake that he, as the taker of the odds, was not disqualified at the same time, which will certainly be the case in future.-We understand that it is probable that the third day s racing 'at the Exhibition meeting will be altered from Tuesday, the 3rd, to Monday, the 2nd of December.
