MR. OSWALD RILEY I Resigns Mastership of Tedworth Hunt. The remarkable incident which occurred recently in the hunting field, when the Master of the Tedworth Hunt, Mr Oswald Riley (a son of Mr Riley, of Putley Court), thrashed a horse- man, whom he overtook and accused of drag- laying, came under review on Wednesday at a special general meeting of the hunt at Ludgers- hall, Sir Edmund Antrobus, who presided, referr- ing to the thrashing incident, said that, while the committee realised that Mr Riley had no right to take the law into his own hands, they remem bered that he was acting under the most serious provocation. Mr Riley was very keen about the hounds and keen to show sport, and when he saw somebody interfering with the sport in this illegitimate and unsportsmanlike manner it was very trying thing for him, or any man, to keep his temper. A resolution was passed pledging the meeting to do their best to prevent laying of drags. Mr H W Boileau, of Purley House, Reading, the present master of the South Berkshire hounds was appointed master of the Tedworth Hunt, in succession to Mr Riley, who was giving up the hounds for personal reasons. In the course of a tribute to the retiring master, Sir Edmond Antrobus said that Mr Riley had shown excellent sport, and had. got on splendidly with owners and occupiers of land. It was a matter of universal regret that he felt it necessary to give up the mastership.
