THE TIMES; MOJNJUA, MARCH 24, 1890. SPORTING INTELLIGENCE, y THE RACING SEASON. The four months which haw lapsed tine the racing season of 18S9 eta to a cIom at Manchester hart been singularly devoid of incident, and then has not Un any " Torf scand - l " to discuss, such aa that which had iU origin in the Trl oTDwhamV speech at a York racing dinner two year ago. 2or, upon the other hand, har any of the horses which distinguished themlrct th moat aa two - year - olda met with a mishap calculated to mar their threo - ycar - old prospects, and it may he aaid that the aspect of the Two Tliotuand; Guinea, the Derby, the Oxl t, and cither racet of that description remains pretty much the same aa when Sicnorina, Itinera, he JCord, lleanme, and one or two others went into winter quarters. There has been little betting during the winter upon either the Two Thousand Guineas or the Derby, and matters are Tery different in that respect from what they were 15J years aco. when horses were backed for the Epsom race while they were still yearlings ; in some cases before the entries hall been made. But the whole tendencr of racing in the present day is in the opposite direction, and the. less betting there is in advance the fewer are the chances of double dealing and roguery. The winter has, however, been so mild that the cross - country meetings, which bridge over the interval between one racing season and another, hare suffered little interruption, but steeplechasing and hurdle racing do not enjoy just now the support which was at one time accorded to them, and while the class of persons to whom belong horses which run under the National Hunt Rules is not, with a few notable exceptions, what it was, there is a singular paucity of good " jumpers " in training. 2one of those which have run since the beginning of the rear have done anything to justify the belief that there is likely to be any immediate improvement in this respect, though the best of these, together with several others which havo not run 'since last season, will join issue in the Grand National Steeplechase, which, included in the opening wee,of the racing season, excites perhaps more interest than any of the fiat races run for either at Lincoln or at Liverpool. Steeplechasing and hurdle racing - will, in fact, find a place iu many. of the, programmes up to the middle of next month, and it will not be until the first of tho Newmarket meetings is held on the loth of April and the two following days that the weight - for - age races, the character of which goes to make or mar tv season, will occupy tho .place to which their intrinsic importance, entitles them. Net but what some good sport ot its kind jnay be anticipated in the interval, for the present week, with the Lincoln and Liverpool meetings covering six days, will be a very busy one, while if the majority of the many fixtures set for EasUr week are only of passing interest, those at Northampton and Leicester may be counted upon to bring out some smart two - Year - olds. It was at Leicester two years ago that Donovan secured the first - contest for the Portland Stakes, the richest English trite ever won by a two - year - old ; and a twelvemonth ago he achieved his maiden three - year - old victory in the Prince of Wales's Stakes, which was the richest three - year - old prize cv,er run for. Both these races will again bo run for at Leicester this season, but not until the summer meeting in July, and it mar be added that the entries for them have fallen off so - much that neither race will be near) v r - n valuable as it was when Donovan placid it to the Duke of Portland's credit. Nor will it be possible for any one owner to achieve the marvellous' success which attended the Duke of Portland himself last season, when he iwon, apart from the Derby and the St. Loger, the five prizes, averaging about 130,000 each, at Leicester, Kempton, Newmarket. Sandown, and Manchester. Two of these, the Royal Stakes at 'Kempton and tho Eclipse Stakes at Sandown, do not exist this season ; the Prince of Wales's .Stakes at Leicester will be worth about 40 per cent, less, while the Newmarket Stakes and the Lancashire Plato will certainly be worth less rather than more than they were last year. But the programme of the Leicester April Meeting is not aeroiu oi interest., ana me spring jianuicap win bring out most of the 17 hones still engaged in it unless it is discounted by previous running at Northampton the same week. . This will be the fifth of the principal spring handicaps, two more of which, the Crawford ana the Babraham Plates, are included in the pro gramme ot the Jtewmarset L raven .Meeting the week after Leicester, but this fixture will derive its chief interest from the contests for the Three - year - Old Biennial and the Craven Stakes, both of which have frequently had an important, bearing upon the Two Thousand Guineas and the Derby. The best of the three - year - olds are not engaged on the present occasion, but several of those in the second rank are, and it will be interesting to see whether they have made tho improvement which is claimed for them. The Epsom Spring Meeting is set for the week following (April 22 and 23), and although the number of well - tried stayers now in training is not so great as it should be, it so happens that the acceptances for the Great Metropolitan Stakes, one of the few long distance handicaps which have survived the changes of tho last few years, are far stronger than they have been for some seasons. Thirty - five horses were left in after the first declaration of forfeit, including Earl llowo's Claymore, who headed the list jvith Vst., but has since been sold for the French" jtud. Baron Hirsch's Vasistas, winner of the Grand Prix do Paris, Mr. Vyner'a Fallow Chat, and Mr. Goater'a Primrose Day, winner of the Cesar t witch, still remain, and the Great Metropolitan Stakes seems likely to beof more interest than the City and Suburban Handicap, run for on the next day, tho more so as many of the 40 animals engaged in the latter will hare already run for the Lincolnshire and other handicaps. The Newmarket First Spring Meeting, set for the two last days of April and tho two first of May, does not comprise any important handicap ; but the contests for the Two Thousand and One Thousand Guineas will ef themselves suffice to make it more interesting than any of tho preceding 'fixtures, especially as all the Derby favourites, with the exception of Riviera, are engaged in the former. The names of Surefoot, Heaume, Le Nord, St. Serf, Right Away, Martaon, Alio way, and Golden Gate, to say nothing of the two Australian colts whose dibut will be looked forward to with much interest, are to be found among tbo 81 entries. But the One Thousand Guineas does not present so, promising an appearance, as Chevalier Ginistrelli's 'unbeaten filly, Signorina, who won nine races, worth nearly 12,000. as a two - year - old, will scare away nearly all opposition. The Duke of Portland's Semolina ana Memoir. Mr, Warren De La Rue's Dearest, and Mr. Ilouldsworth's Ponza are the best of the other entries ; and, in the event of Signorina failing to fulfil her early promise, Semolina, who won 13 - races out of la as a two - year - old, would seem equally 'invincible. Memoir, who, like Signorina and Semolina, is a daughter of St, Simon, ran well in the autumn and has since made great improvement ; but this raco will not bo so . interesting as the Newmarket Stakes, open - to three - year - old colts as well as fillies, which is in the programme of the Second Spring Meeting. A clear fortnight has to elapse between the two Newmarket fixtures, and in the week following the Two Thousand Guineas, the meetings at Chester and Kempton Park seem likely to furnish some good sport. The Chester Cup, run for on Wednesday, May 7, is not tho important event1 it once was, aod some of the best horses originally engaged have paid forfeit, but the other races at that old - fashioned meeting, with its quaint circular course, hare been well supported I by tho Duke of Westminster, the Duke of Portland, Lord Randolph Churchill, and owners of that; stamp. The Jubilee Stakes at Kempton Park will, however, bo the chief event of the week, for this handicap, founded three years ago, is worth 2,700 to the winner, and has a very good acceptance. General Byrne a Amphion, who won it last year, has the top weight (9st. 71b.), but there is no reason for supposing him to be a horse cf the same class as Mr. Barclay's Bendigo and Mr. . VyncrV Minting, who, in tho two first years of this race, excited, so much enthusiasm by carry - inztheir heavy burdens to Tictory". The Newmarket Stakes will be run for on May 21, and except that Riviera takes the place of Surefoot, and that Semolina, Memoir, and Garter are also engaged, the race baa at present much the same complexion as the Two Thousand Guineas. There are some, valuable two - year - old prises in the programme of this meeting ; but, the week following, the, Whitsant'.da, Plats at Manchester will be worth over 3,000 to the winner. There it a very fins entry for this two - year - old prize, which, with tho Manchester Cup and the Breeders' Foal Stakes, will make the Lancashire meeting most interesting one. The ipaom Summer Meeting begins on Tuesday, June 3, and it is to bo hoped rather than expected that the interest of the Derby and of the Oaks will not bo to a great extent discounted by previous running in the Two Thousand, the One Thousand, and the Newmarket Stakes, all the prominent candidates engaged at Epsom having been entered in one or more of the three great races' at Newmarket. The usual interval of a week between tho Epsom and Ascot Meetings will be occupied by important races in France for which English horses will compete, tho Grand Prix do Paris being set fir t Sunday, June 15 ; while after Ascot, the pro - : gramme far which is, if anything, more attractive j than ever, will come the pleasant meetings at , Stockbridgo and Newmarket, where so many good J two - year - ohlt are, as a rule, brought out to run), j The July Meeting at Newmarket has this year ! been made into two. and in the week intervening ; tho Leicester and Sandown Park Meetings will be j get through, tho Portland .Stakes (for two - year - olds) and she Prince, of Wales's Stakes (for three - year - olds) investing the former with an interest which will be 'quite lacking at Sandown, with no such race as the Eclipse Stakes in its programme. The Goodwood Meeting opens on the 20th of July, and between it and tbo Don - caster Meeting (September 9 to 12) tho races of most interest will be those run for at the pleasant northern "meetings of Redcar, Stockton, and York, the prospects of a good contest for the St. Leper being at present very good, as the only notable three - year - olds not entered i are Signorina and Le Nord. The Lancashire Plate, the only one of these rich prizes open to two - year - olds, is set for the Saturday ot the week following the St. Legcr, and then will follow in their usual course the three autumn meetings at Newmarket, all of which hare been wisely limited to four days, commencing on September 23, October 7, and October 21. . . Tho last month of tho season will bo occupied by meetings at Lincoln, Liverpool, Derby, Northampton, Warwick, and Manchester, but the autumn, meeting at Lincoln' is never of so much interest as that with which the racing season invariably opens on the Carholmo, as the Lincoln course is called. The fact that tho spring meeting at Lincoln is the first of the season gives it a of a very high order, the chief events being the ISrocklesby buses, in which a number ot unknown two - year - olds make their dibut, and the Lincolnshire Handicap, for which horses of a high order rarely compete. The Brockleaby Stakes, run for to - morrow, has, however,, gained in character of late years, seeing that since ISSoitjias brought out three such two - year - olds as The Bard, Donovan, and Semolina. The 95 entries, reduced to 63 by. the first declaration of forfeit, comprise large contingents, from 'the two stables of the Duke of Portland, the Marquis of Londonderry, and Lord Hastings, and of Lord Randolph Churchill and Colonel North, the latter of whom entered no fewer than 13 yearlings for most of which he paid a very high price at public auction. The Duke of Portland, who has won it two years in .succession with Donovan and Semolina, has several highly - bred animals to choose from, including Simon Magus, a colt by St. Simon Wheel of fortune with many engagements, while Mr. Hammond's t. Cypria, half - sister to Laureate, is one of the first proceny of. that good horse St. Gatien, and Mr. A. V. Merry's Swiftsure is full sister to Surefoot, the Two Thousand and Derby favourite; The Lincolnshire Handicap, run for" on Wednesday, had a small entry originally, and of the 34 left in after the declaration of forfeit, Lord Randolph Churchill' L'Abbesse de Jouarre was disqualified owing to the fact of her not having been registered as the ioint property of Lord Dun - raven and himself. The new rule as to the registration of Tiuf partnerships only came into force on the 1st of January, and owing to its not being well understood, several of the horses entered for. thespringraces hare been disqualified. It is not probable, howe ver, that her presence at the post would have affected the result, and the best of the competitors, so far as class is concerned, are Mr. J. Hammond's Laureate (Ost. 21b.), who won tho Cambridgeshire last October, Mr. J. O'Neill's The Rejected (8st. Ulb.), Lord Calthorpe's Mortaigne (8st. lib.), and Mr. Lascelles's Nun - thorpe (Tst. 131b.). Sir Robert Jardihe's Wise Man, who won the race last year with 7st. 81b., was this year given the top weight of 9st. 41b.,i and but for the fact that his stable companion Sweetbriar (Tst. 91b.) was believed to be the better of the two at the weights, he would have again found many friends, seeing that he wound up tlio season by a very meritoriou victory. There will, however, be a large field for this race, always a rery open one, seeing that so much depends upon the condition of the competitors, which in turn, depends upon the amount of work they have done during the recess, whereas the horses which run for the chief race at Liverpool have many of them been before the public all the winter. The Liverpool meeting follows Lincoln on Thursday. Friday, and Saturday, the Grand National Steeplechase being, as usual, run for on Friday.; There were 61 entries for it, of, which 21 paid the' minor forfeit and two or - three others were disqualified for not having been nominated in accordance with the new rules referred to above. These latter included Roquefort, one of the four previous winners of the race that had been left in, and Come Away, supposed to be the best of the Irish competitors, while the only German horse engaged was struck out, and' one of the three French entries died. But eight of the 20 horses which ran for tho race last rear were still left in, including Mr. Maher's Frigate, Mr. Jardine's Why Not, and Mr. Rutherford's M.P., who then finished first, second, and third. The five others were Mr. Boyd's Voluptuary and Mr.. Strong's Gamecock, winners of the race in 1884 and 1887, Mr. Beasley's .Battle Royal, Mr. Abington's Bellona (list. 91b.), and the Prince of Wales's Hettie (lOst, 111b.) With the exception ot the last - named this batch seems likely to provide the winner, if not the two other placed horses as well, unless the younger horses, such as Captain Machell's Emperor, an Irish bred five - rear - old. or Mr. Masterman's Ilex, hare made rery great progress since last season. I hero are flat races of considerable; interest at the Liverpool meeting, the Molyneux Stakes, for two - year - olds, having almost as good an entry as the Brocklesby at Lincoln, including several encaged in the latter race, while the nominations for the Union Jack Stakes, for thrce - ycor - olds, include two or three hones trom the Kingsclere stable, such as tho Duke' of Westminster's Orwell and Mr. Porter's devoid ol merit. Then there is the Bickerstaffe Stakes, also for three - year - olds, in which Mr. Low's Right .Away may meet Lord Calthorpe's Heresy, while the Liverpool Spring Cup. run for on Saturday, will be the last race of importance' in a busy weex.

Victories have been gained by them over some of the best English clubs, while iu Scotland this season the Challenge Cup has again fallen to their skill. Their visit to London on Saturday aroused widespread interest. Many of our leading amateurs were to be found among the Corinthians, whose team altogether was very strong. The attendance of spectators at the Oval was estimated at from nine to ten thousand. Having won the toss, the Corinthians chose the western goal, by which they secured the advantage of the wind, and Johnstone kicked oS for the Scotchmen. Hammond sent the ball to Brann. who with Lindlev dribbl.n close to the eoal. Arnott relieTed his side by a long kick, ami, althoogh the Corinthians nau nanus KiTen in toeir favour. the same player passed the ball OTer to Seller. Then followed fine play by the Queen's Park forwards. The left wines Allan and Sellar took the ball down tbo ground, and middled to Johnstone, who turned it over to uuimanu, ana iue is namea aicaeu a goal. Nothing came ot a further attaskby Queen's Park, mod then the rilar was taken to the other end. where it remained for a peat while, the Corinthian forwards being most energetic. Wilson defended the Queen's Park coal with great ability. The home team again nressed Oueen's Park so closely that everr minute a score seemed imminent. Shots by Lindley and Braun were supplemented with two dexterous kicks by Currey. Wilson saved his post each time, and in the course of the next few minutes he prevented scores by Currey and Brann. Three corners fell to the Corinthians without result, Wilson thrice using his hands indefence of the goal. The second portion of the match was opened with a brisk attack by the Corinthians, in w&icn A.inoiey nearly scoreu. cuosequentiy tne visitors' forwards dribbled the ball well into the other quarters, whrre good kicking was shown by Wells and Walters ami excellent goal - seeping by Jloon. A few minutes later Arnott, the full back, by a very long kick, credited Queen's Park with a second goal. The Scotchmen were now playing the better game and the 'home hacks had plnnty to do. Erentually Holdea - White tried to take a soot trom Johnstone, but the ball screwed and went throuzb the home eoal. A few minutes later Lamble finished up a brilliant run by kicking a goal for the Corinthians, who were ultimately beaten by three goals to one. The teams were well matched, but the extraordinary roal - keepior of Wilson for Queen's Park contributed largely to the success of nis siae. Scotland t. Walk.. There were about 7,000 spectators at Paisley to - witness the 15th annual match between Scotland and Wales. Paul kicked off for the home team,, who had lost the toss, within a quarter ot an hour of the start Wilson kicked a goal for Scotland, and brfore half - time Paul obtained a second and Dunloo a third. while Wales failed to gain a point. On changing ends the visitors strove hard to score ; but the goal - keeping oi uiucspie was Terr saic. x - e ocotcu, ou too ouier hand, increased (heir adTantace.

LES CLIQUES DE CORXUVILLB. Mr. Stii - t THE LATE COAL STRIKE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, I was very glad to see Mr. Assheton's letter to - day, as I am aware that there is a large amonnjof ignorance on the subject of tbe rise of colliers' wages affecting the price of coal. I have been often told that here iu Yorkshire for each 10 per cent, increase of wage the workmen engaged in mines receive on an average 1 Jd. per ton extra. Thus, before the demand for another 10 per cent, which has occasioned tbe threatened strike, workmen receired on an average 5)d. per ton, equivalent to 30 per cent., and with the extra 10 per cent, now demanded, and already conceded in 45 mines, they will receire an extra per ton. The rise in the price of coal in London before the threntcned strike was at least 3s. per ton. It it high time that the pablie was informed that bat little of the increased price is owing to the rue in wages ; and also that some individuals are making large prods tinder what seems to be false pretences. Faithfully yours. C01LPT0N. Queen's Hotel, Bamsley, March 20. LES CLOCHES DE CORNEVILLE. Miss VIOLET CAMERON aad Mr. 8111 EL BARRY la Uteir oncinal paru. orery maiosv - OPERA COMIQCE. COURT THEATRE.

At a meeting of the Norfolk Chamber of Agriculture, held at Norwich on Saturday, under the presidency of Mr. B. B. Sapwell, it was resolred, on the motion of Mr. Clare Sewetl Read, seconded by lit. ,W. Smith, " That this Chamber approres of the principle of the Tithes Bill of her Majesty's GoTemment, but regrets that it makes no attempt to rectify the corn returns, which, by including all resales of corn and excluding the increasing quantity of grain now consumed on the farm, unfairly enhances tbe com aTerages on which the tithe rent - charge is paid." It was alto rtsolred That, in the opinion of the Chamber, tbe Bill is framed chiefly in the interests of titheowners ; that the redaction clauses in cases where the commuted value exceeds 20s. are likely to prore inoperative, and that in eases where a reduction does take place, the owner of the land will be the bene&ted party. Royal Botaxic Societt. At a meeting of this society; held on Saturday, Mr. O. J. Symocs, F.B.S., in the - chair, tbe following candidates were elected into the society : Mr. Basil Tree, Mr. 8.
