NEW ZEALAND TROTTING CONFERENCE. PERMIT TO WANGANUI CLUB APPROVED.,
WELLINGTON, July 20.
The New Zealand Trotting Conference opened to-day. Considerable discussion took place in reference to the action of the executive in granting a totalisator permit to the recently formed Wanganui Trotting Club. By 10 to 4 }t was decided, on the motion of Mr Rowe (Auckland) to approve of the action of the executive.'
It was agreed to alter rule 92, providing that no programme should be either circulated or advertised until it has been approved by the Association. On the motion of Mr Selig (Christchurch) it was decided to add to Rule 107 that "No assumed name shall be used by any other than the person who registers such name." ,
It was decided that racing colours must l)e registered with the Association. Rule 185 was altered, making it an additional offence, to be 7 punished by a fine or disqualification, to "knowingly employ as a racing stable hand or in connection with the training or trotting of a horse any person whpse license has been suspended, withdrawn, or refused by Association," but * the right -was retained by the Association to grant permits allowing the employment of any such person. A motion 'by Mr Selig to repeal Rule 186, which gives clubs the. right to issue such permits or licenses was lost.' ' The following addition was . made to Rule 187: /'Any person whose application for a license has been refused, or whose license has, been suspended or withdrawn by the Association shall be guilty of corrupt practice if he ; apply to a club for a license under Rule 186." The proposed additions to the> amateur rules were' discuWd ; two were negatived and one withdrawn.
If what appears in London files is correct, the King received 'among his .congratulatory messages on the success of Minorn in the Derby one from the Argentine, which ran thus: — "Minoru, England- Congratulations from your father. — Cyllene. Cyllene is still at Argentine, and his Majesty is said to have been more tickled by the message referred to than by any of the others.
