The totalisator speculation on the Grand Prix de Paris, wbioli was won by the Car- bine colt Spearmint, was unusually grea't, .?90,120 going through the machines, as against £49,880 for the corresponding race last year. Major Loder invested £7000 on Spearmint in tike iotalisatoi-£5000 on the straight-out and £2000 on the place machine. Although Spearmint only re iturned at 'tine rata of 10 to 9 on straight out, his supportera on the place machine drew at the rate of 10 to 8 on. These were the enclosure returns; outside Spear- mint i^bumed 2 to 1, small French backers patriotically sticking to their own ?horses. There iras heavy tolnK'sator bet- tong on tile other events, the turnover for -tilie day being £206 309'; producing £16.504 for divi-ion between bhe race fund and charitable objects.

At the recent New Zcalnnd Raping Con- ference, the chairman (Sir George Clif- ford; ftnted that never, perhaps, in the long lristorv of racing was any country better supplied with the means of sever- ing from racing every objectionable ad- junct. New Zealand had sufficient owners of probity in whom the public have con- fidence, and they have means of innocent speculation winch can only harm the stupidly reckless. They lind a board of control in the conference whose stendy aim is the removal of abuses, and they i eject the bookmaker and the professional gambler from courses. For the full realisa- tion of their ideal of clean sport, the conference only asked for the effective execution of the law, which they had a just claim to demand. Mr. G. G. Stead's proposal to exclude the putting of those m arrear with their entry and acceptance money on the forfeit list was lost by 14 votes to 20. The mover argued that the payments should be in cash. It was de- cided that no jockey under 21 years of age, unlf-sa in the regular employ of an owner or trainer, or who has not ridden twenty races in 'the previous year, shall be entitled to receive a jockey's license, and a further proposal that; the metro- politan committee may refute to approve lillie programme of any ohib using a totalizator which - permits bookmakers to bet on its course, was also agreed to. By one vote, a proposal in favour, of.jockeys' fees being payable at scale was lost.
