THE PROPRIETARY COURSES.
lu connection with the rediicliou of racing «lays, the Chief Secwrai-y of Vic- toria (Mr. McLood) has (says the "Argus") received a report from the police officer regarding the metropolitan proprietary rao/'coiiive-s. The report states that the Aspendale, Saudosrii-|ia.'.-k, ISiKsoni, und AfcnitoiHs 0011 i-sos are restricted extdut-ive ly to "hoi*so" racing, and the meetings, wlridli, with few exception«, aro held on Wedneeda}*, ¡ire attended by riu-ing men, artisans, workers. spie)ej*s. loafers, and a less* women.

Unfortunately, these (proprietary) ciubs depend almost entirely upon the .patron», ago of the working classes, ssiiw ssTongly atitirrlj-uto to the high cost of living, denrili of employment, otc, their un- satisfactory p-couniary condition, which ari.sos in most cases iib the result of their infatuation'foi- racecourse gambling.

The officer was- a_ked to report on Die question of the desirableness! of these meetings from a sporting point, of view. He states that the «_spressioii-*'sporf.'' as appláed to horse and pom- racing at pi*c scnt. is a miV-nomer. and the sooner that qualification is completely eliminated from what h.**_i'deterriorai«d into a sordid
and debasing- husillo.; pure and simple tho easier it will be for the practical dis
