SETTLES TURF LIBEL SUIT Australian Owner Decides Not to Appeal Case Decided Against Him. The final chapter has been written in the libel suit brought against the horse owner, P. A. Connolly, by jockey T. Darcy in Perth, Australia. Connolly had intended to appeal when the case was decided against him, but he has changed his mind, as is told in the following account from the Sydney Referee: P. A. Connolly has had enough of law. Last week ho paid into court in Perth the ,500 damages awarded T. Darcy. Another item was the latters legal expenses, which ran into four figures and were also borne by the defendant. Although Connolly gave notice of appeal, he is not going on with it. He has evidently had his fill of law, and at present is probably inclined to pass along to someone else his self-imposed task of turf reformation. In racing it is easy to make allegations, but when it comes to proving them in a court of law it is a different matter, as it has cost Connolly a substantial sum to learn.
