C. Emer.Hon registered an attractive riding performance at Hororata on Saturday. Out of a programme of six events he rode four winners and was second in another race.

Only the most optimistio thought that the resolution passed by the Racing Coaferdence forbidding betting with bookmakers by owners, trainers, and jockey* would seriously diminish the business activities of the layers of odds (writes the New Zealand correspondent of Melbourne 'Winner'). It is impassible to ascertain how much money has changed hands in straight out, double, and treble betting on Cup week races, but it must have run into a large sum. TTie interesting literature circulated by the " woolbrokers" regarding tha November "clip"—our friend the bookmaker is fond of this little joke, despite the inevitable comment that it has a significant connection with " fleecing" —has been as plentiful as ever, and the number of amateur metallicians with double charts, which go to the rounds of factories, shops, and offices, has, if anything, increased. Some of these small fry run "doubles"—each selection being laid only once—on nearly every meeting in the country. Occasionally one bears of a prosecution by the police. The other day, for instance, in Auckland, one Joseph Farnworth was fined £IOO for street betting. But if that penalty checks Joseph there are plenty of others willing to run the risk One would think there was profit ia bookmaking.
