At Flemington yesterday Carbine did a fast mile gallop in Imin 52sec. Carrington, who should run well up in the Caulfield Guineas, took only half a second longer over the same distance. On the Caulfield track Dunkeld was sent a mile and p-half, doing it much quicker than Moorbank. Benzon did a mile and five furlongs in capital stylo. Meteor did a bad gallop. The C. J.C. Committee have endorsed the disqualification of Escapade, the owner Mr Panetti, and the jockey Stratford, imposed by the V.R.C. The Exhibition Regatta Committee held a meeting lust night. It was reported that satisfactory progress was being made with the arrangements, and that the Working Men’s Rowing Club, of Balmain (Sydney), will send a crew to compete in the champion four-oared inriggocl race for all comers. At the Sydney Driving Park Club’s meeting Mr A. J. Keith’s Daisy (25 secs behind scratch) won the Handicap Trot in smin 48 l-ssec. Irlthe Pony Selling RaceEvawas beaten for firstplaceby alength,and|theowner demanded an inquiry, which resulted in the nominator (R. C. Coles) being disqualified for life, and the rider (Hayes) being ordered to stand down'for twelve months. The Victorian Bowlers’ Association have arranged to send a team of sixteen men over to take part in the bowling tourney to be held in Dunedin in January. At the Sydney settling over meeting it was reported that one “ plunger” on the Steeplechase was anxiously inquired after for liabilities of over LI ,000. There was some brisk wagering. For the Caulfield Cup, Scottish Chief, Moorbank, Dunkeld, The Charmer, Meteor, Manton, Bravo, and Oakleigh were each backed to win small amounts, the prices ranging from 14 to 20 to 1 ; 1,000 to 80 was offered on the field. No big wagers were booked about the Melbourne Cup, but Carbine and Singapore were pronounced favorites, 10 to 1 being accepted about Carbine, and 12 to 1 about Singapore and Silverton. 1,000 to 45 was taken twice about Cardigan. A good many doubles were booked for the Derby and Melbourne Cup, 1,000 to 40 being accepted in some instances with Dreadnought, while the prices for other selections ranged from 1,000 to 5 to 20. Several doubles were booked for the two Cups at 1,000 to 2 to 5. One of the newest marvels at the Neuilly Fair, France, recently was a “champion female wrestler,” named Jeanne Du Rosay, who performed in the amateur circus of M. Mclier. She was pitted against a brawny male athlete belonging to the troup of a showman named Marseille, and gave her antagonist enough to do. For eighteen minutes Jeanne wriggled about like an eel, defying every attempt of the athlete to throw her, and putting him almost out of breath. Eventually the unedifying spectacle was terminated by the fall of the champion female. The athlete stepped forward to explain to Mendam.es el Messieurs that he had never had to deal with an opponent so strong and agile. Of course the Hon. James White was far and away the largest winner at the A. J.C. meeting. His cheque was L 5,345 out of a total of L 13.012; Mr Royd coming next with L 1,112, and Mr Johns third with L 775. Mr P. Butler received L2OO. “Jubilee Juggins” relates in his recently published book that, on one occasion when Ormonde (the Duke of Westminster’s champion) was engaged in a race against no less celebrities than Bendigo and Minting, he betted L 20.000 to L 16.000 on the firstmentioned and won. The Committee of the Dunedin Amateur Athletic Club met last evening, when Mr James Howlison was appointed hon. secretary. A petition that had been signed for the purpose of urging the New Zealand Association to include a 220 yds race in the programme was presented, and it was decided to forward it to Christchurch, with a recommendation that the request be acceded to.
