ENGLISH JOCKEYS MODERATELY PAID "There is going to be a shutting up of jockeys in the coining season, both in England and on the continent," says the Sportsman. "The tendency in England Is to cut down retainers to jockeys and on the continent to increase them. In Austria bigger retainers are paid than in any other country. Sensible men have long ceased to place credence in paragraphs from the United States regarding salaries there earned by jockeys. French owners used to pay big salaries, and do so still, but they are being beaten by their German and Austrian friends. A jockey who ten years ago in England would have commanded 5,000 a year would now ask 0,000. "L. Hewitt, the New Zealand jockey who came over to ride for Mr. J. Buchanan, has been engaged for next season by .Mr. W. Hnll Walker to take tlie place of B. Lynham, who is going to France. Mr. Walkers horses will shortly be transferred to the care of Mr. II. S. Persse, at Grateley." ,
