The goal-kickers for Fort Melbourne were Gil- bert 2, Cían ford 1, Elliott ii, Way 1, Kelly 1,

und for Coburg J. Wilson 2.

Fort Melbourne w ei e without the sen ices of De Chene, Baker, and Pam, but Elliott played his fir*t panie with the tom, and is a power of strength on the forward line; and Kelly reappeared after _i long spell.

-M-Ken/io und Wav ("centre'), Ra\cnha1l and O'Rrien (nick), Crawford and Williams (rovers), and G. Deas pul in eomc fine work for Port Mel- bourne. »

I Werribee.
