Was Once Star Cyclist
The rowing championship of the
world which was won by nichnrd
Arnst from Webb, the Maorllander,
lately seems to havo excited very lit
tle Interest In the sporting world.
There Is no gore, and consequently
one of tho best sports In the world
rails to nttrnct nowadays. Hut It was
not always so; who, of middle ago,'
but can remember the sensational
rnccs between Ned llanlon, the fast
est man of his weight who overstep
ped Into nn outrigger, and Hill Heac'h,
(ho !mrly farmer from tho Antipodes.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars
changed hands over a sculling cham
pionship In thoso days. All the pa
pers were full of the doings of the'
two men who were to compete. Their
every movement was watched and
chronicled, and tho most trivial of
arcldontft magnified Into hermits ca
Thousands of people went out lu
specially chartered steatners to- watch
tho men training on the course. Ev
ery mocmcnt of tho men In their
fi nil cedar boats was noted, and stor
ed up for futuro use. Tho strokes
per minute, the courso steered, the
men's physical state at tho conclu
sion of their work, all this and more,
was discussed at every street corner.
Special newspaper correspondents
Journeyed thousands of miles to write
up tho race; cablegrams wont to, ev
ery nook In tho civilized world whcie
wlilto men congregate. ' On the day
of the rnco thousands of pigeons wcro
curried up In crates to the river, nnd
at tho conclusion of tho strugglo wcro
liberated to wend their way to many
a lonely homestead, where the result
of tho rnco was anxiously awaited.
When Ned llanlon crpsscd tho Pa
cific to rnco Ilcacli for the champion

mulch. llanlon was thought Invin

Justified tho trust In him. For one
mllo tho pace was terrific, with llan
lon leading. At two miles ' lleuch
forged ahcud and led llanlon by half
a boat length. When two nnd one
liair miles were covered, tho big man
was leading by two lengths, with
Ilunlon resting on his oars exhausted.
Ilcacli got Homo few mora lengths In
the lead nnd then collapsed, llanlon
encouraged to further o (Torts by his
supporters, again started to row. Tho
excitement was awful as tho Amcrl

eventually winning tho race. This
was Ifanlon's first defeat, and ho
took it much to heart. Ills wonder
ful pluck and endurancfa endeared
him to all, and, as a matter of .fact,
tho feting and entertainments that
wcro got up for him about proved his
Over 1 GO, 000 people lined both
banks of tho river to watch the race,
whilst hundreds of steamers laden
with humanity followed the con
testants. Over J2G0.000 changed
hands on tho race, and most people
who were not present would not bo-
lluvo the telegrams announcing the
fact Hint thn "lnvlnclblo". llanlon
had been beaten.
Tho sport of rowing was in Its
heyday during tho eighties, but grad-
unlly died but. Challengers for
championships used to travel like
lords, with a host of atteudant train
ers and conches. Nothing was too
good for them on the largo liners.
When the slump came In the sport
how did challengers nnd even chamt
plons who sought matches fare?
Why, George Towns, champion, up till
n couple of years ago, had to work
his way to England as a coal-passer!
Thoro was never much crooked, work
In championship rowing races, al

match looked a bit fishy.

accounts a good raco. ArnBt, who, up

Walsh' great eastern reputation and

a Biirer eye than Hlldlo. However,
slnco tho adoption of tho foul strike

should take that first ball pitched or

that "baso on balls." I moan by this

Intention lo arguo this question, Unco
