SPORTS AND PASTIMES. ■f?AMBRlt>GE T'EIAI, EIGHT—ASTL POM BETTING —COUNTY CRICKET CLUB BALANCE-SHEETS— LOND(I IRISH GOLFING CLUB—CARPEN- ITIER\s CHALLENGE—FOOTBALL. A commencement has been made at Cam- bridge with the practice for the University OBoatrace. The president, Mr. S. E. Swann, 1took out a crew composed of members of last term's trial eights as follows: E. A. Car- rington (Christ's College), bow; R. Gould (Jesus), P. C. Livingstone (Jesus), E. A. Fid- -clian (Emmanuel), K. J. Garnett (First Trinity), J. A. Ritson (First Trinity), A. Swann (Trinity Hall), A. C. F. Garnett Bot- jield (Third Trinity), stroke, and N. J. Rich (First Trinity), cox. The work done was of a Sight character, and the men were away only pi &hort time. In discussing the Lincolnshire Warren flFfill makes the following remarks in the Sporting Life: It would appear from the de- cline of some of the great ante-post betting handicaps and the rise of others that even the fcigger betting stables do not trouble so much about investing their money long before the Way of the race, and with bookmakers sharing on the apathy, owing perhaps to the coup kroTtght off with Berrilldon last year, fewer books have been opened and less business Tthan usual been done. It was said that the owner of Berrilldon netted the sum of £ 20,000 without any great outlay, and although big coups are often planned in races iike the CamUridgesb' :v, few larger soma liave been taken out of the ring recently on • Lincolnshire Handicap. The balance-sheet of the Gloucestershire County Cricket Club shows that the balance in hand of just over L373 with which the sea- won opened last year has disappeared, and that there is now due to the bank a sum of £ 671 14s. 5d. Members' subscriptions during the year came to £ 931 13s. 6d., but there was considerable falling off in Rate money. This -was especially the case at Bristol, where th< matches with Kent and Northamptonshire yielded only £45 ea(.:n. On the other hand, the August Bank Holiday match with Somer- set at Bristol brought in rather more than £ 418. The two matches at Gloucester pro- duced, roughly speaking. £ 196, and the three ..t Cheltenham 4:593. The chief items of ex- penditure were £1 ,072 for professionals "1 and £ 402 for amateurs' expenses. The annual meeting of the Somerset County 'Cricket Club was held at Bath on Saturday afternoon, Major C. H. Simpson presiding. In presenting the financial report Mr. Gerald Fowler said the subscriptions had fallen off hy £ 60, and the gate receipts,Avert- that much iietter. The balance against the club was £ 162. To make ends meet it was necessary <o increase the subscription list by at least £ 400. The accounts were adopted on the motion of Dr. Cobbold, who asked thai in Bath at least the paying "hours should "be-as at Lord's. 'Lord An-aalv, Imcster of the Pytchley Fox Tiounds, has found it necessary to issue the gollowing -notice: "'The M.F.H. having again (received numerous complaints from farmers and others of the unruly behaviour of the aecond horsemen—jumping fences, leaving gate open, &-c.-will be much obliged if ladies and gentlemen will caution their servants and give them distinct orders to remain with the liunt second horsemen. It would be in the Mature of a compliment to the Pytchley Hunt, and would much facilitate the task of keeping the second 'horsemen under some control, if they wee sent out hunting properly dressed (i.e., tall hats and black .coat*), and not. aa is "frequently the case, in very slovenly and -dirty attire:" At a meeting held recently at the Union of -the Four Provinces of Ireland, in John street. Adelphi, it was decided to form a London Irish Golfing Society. Mr. Joseph Nagle. 0& ■well-known plus player, presided, and Mr. Xarry Manou-e, who, as a member of the South London Harriers and the British Hympie team, was -i prominent runner some years ago, was appointed hon. secretary pro iem. It was decided to send a circular to all JLrishmer in London interested in golf. Amongst fire new list ■■■of license# joekeye. tinder th" "National Hunt Rules appears the auame «f 'F. Maltpn. and this has given rise to the impression that "Tich" Mason had de- cided to return to the saddle. The new rider, iK>w«ver, is Moon's brother Fred. •Owing to •» strike among the 'Warrington N-orilierii Uiiion (txture between Hull Kingston Rovers and Warrington at Hull on Saturday had toll)t, postp<)iied. The ,dirptite has arisen among, the members of the ^Warrington team on the question of bonuses in leouticctiou with the lluddersfield match ¡the week before. Warrinijton defeated Hud- dersfield., and claim tliey are entitled to the eame bonus offered to Huddersfield for a win. The Warrington :committec having refused the request of the players, che latter refused ito ;nnke the journey to Hull. 'Georges Carpentier, says t'he Paeis corrt, spondent of the Time*, IIUK issued through liis manager an offer to fight anyone, includ- ing flam Langford, for the middle-weight championship of the world, within the limits -of w-eiglit for that class. He .says that lie will "be willing to meet Joe Jeannette and give him 121b. Since Jeannette''s weight is cloee tir>o,ii liist., this is half a stone above the limit lor the middle-weight champion-ship. Now that the split between the F-ootball Association and the amateurs from the public schools and the Universities is at, length in a fair way to being healed, the Corinthians are looking forward to reviving something ..f their former prestige- There is no doubt that ama- teur football has suffered very considerably through the split, and the consequent iack of practice against professional clubs of the first rank, so that a year or two will probably have to elapse before it can be hoped to put into the field a team that could hold its own with the best pro elevens, as was the case in the .flays of Moon, Oakley, Lodge, Va.ss.all, and the immortal G. 0." The secretary of the Welsh Football Asso- ciation has informed the Wrexham correspon- dent ef the Spolinn) Chronicle, that all the Welsh players chosen for the International match with Ireland at Wrexham on Monday jK>xt have been released. The Welsh F.A. have confirmed the suspension of the player M'Ardlc by the Pontypridd F.C. directors for 1-raving Pontvpridd and returiiing to Scotland without permission. The Ton Pentre club Vave been ordered to satisfy the claim of T. Good all by January 19tlil otherwise the "pellslOn of the club will be ordered. The tves in the first round of the Football Association Cup were played on Saturday, and. despite the unfavourable weather ex- perienced, the attendances were larger than ever before, nearly 550,000 people being pre- «*nt at the thirty-two games, the average re- ceipts being X600 per match. There was no "eate" of :W),000, but many of 20.000. while 4nii!y at Huddersfield and Glossop were there fewer than 10,000 spectators. Most of the ga.mes resulted in accordance with expectation*, but the heavy defeat of Newcastle United, the failure of Evertou at Gloss-op. and Reading's poor show at Brad- ford were quite unexpected. The two most .ex(.it' 'll g games of the day were those between Swindon and Manchester United, won by the former in the last few seconds, and Leicester Fcwse and Tottenham HotspuT, in which for ih? first time on record, it is believed, ten goals were equally divided in a Cup-tie. TMiere have been many instances of ten or inore goals being scored in a m&tch. but a draw of five goala all is a very rare occur- rence in any class of football. In the last, of the Scottish Rugby trial matches the fifteen representing the Improb- aublel% defeated the Probables at Inverleith. ■Edinburgh, by a dropped goal and two tries 4o a goal and a try—10 points to 8. The first of the Jrish international trial malche# wa* played at Belfast, and ended in a win foi Meter, who defeated Muneter by two goalt tMICI two tries (16 pointe) to one goal (5 points)-
