MR STEAD’S TRIP.

[Per Press Association.—Copyright.]

SYDNEY, October 5. Mr G. G. Stead, of Christchurch, and family arrived by the steamer China. In the course of an interview in connection with his trip through America and Europe he said his visit to the manufacturing centres showed that trade was exceptionally active. Inquiries relative.to the methods of gas manufacturing proved that England was much ahead of all the colonies in regard to improved methods. English thoroughbreds, generally speaking, he considered the best in tho world. He has but little to say in praise of tho accommodation provided for the racing public on English courses, and in this respect the colonies are distinctly ahead. The arrangements at Goodwood, Ascot, and Epsom are not to be compared with those at Flemington and Eandwiok, It was absurd to think that English trainers wore not fim-daxs men, but he says they are not nearly so willing to adopt now ideas as the Australians. England has about half a dozen first-class jockeys, but beyond those third and fourthrate jockeys have mounts, and their exhibition of horsemanship would not do credit to an up-country meeting in Australia. While in England Mr Stead purchased three yearlings, with which he intends to strengthen his team at Yaldhurst.
