[BY TELEGRAPH.—-OWN CORRESPONDENT.*] .WELLINGTON, Thursday.' Tho death has occurred of Mr. A. E. Whyte. In Mr. Whyte's demise the Wellington Racing Club suffers a serious loss, while the sport of racing generally has been robbed cf an enthusiastic and energetic worker and supporter. Mr. Whyte was secretary of the Wellington Racing Club in the old days at Hutt Park, and it was mainly due to him that the club decided upon changing its location to the present site at Trentham. To him also was duo the splendid achievement *of having a ready-made course fit, to, raco upon carved almost from the virgin bush within twelve months of the decision to shift. With his steady and far-sighted guidance tho club has progressed until it not only now holds a leading placft among tho racing clubs of New Zealand, but is in possession of the magnificent property,, stands and grounds that is the I'mitiham racecourse to-day. The progressive attitude always adopted by the Wellington stewards had its mainspring in Mr. Whyte's far-seeing policy, and the Wellington public have him to thank for the unrivalled accommodation now available to them. "Second to none, and give, the public what they * want," was always his idea, and though he had ;n mind still further improvements at Trentham he has lived long e«ough to s<<6 his dreams of a really magnificent rendezvous for the sporting public handsomely realised. Trentham will ever remain one of the greatest monuments to his memory, and a lasting memorial to his untiring efforts and great, executive ability in the world of the sport which he loved.
