Another of the series of matches for tie Feez trophy was played on Satur- day afternoon, on the Eagle I< a^n Race l course, bet.vcen toowoomba ana Bns

bane teams. The game was one of I more than ordinary interest, as tho double teams at the conclusion of the allotted number of bouts tied with two goals each, but lu the play off both the vToowoomba teams scored tho coveted goal, thus winning the match alter a hard afternoon's play.

The weather was nearly all that could be desired, except for a cold westerly which blew throughout the afternoon, but the freshness of the breeze was a decided advnntage to the players and ponies In their hard work. The dusty nature of the ground, however, was a great hindrance, occasionally obscuring the flight and position of the ball. Two learns from Toowoomba, tai own a9 the Firsts and Seconds, competed with simi- lar Brisbane teams. The arrangement? were that the Firsts should play three bouts of twenty minutes eafch, and the Seconds four bouts of a-quarter of an hour, the Firsts having a short interval at half-time to change ponies if neces- sary. The Brisbane players wore scar- let riding shirts, and Toowoomba white, with light-blue sash, and thus were easily distinguished. The ponies were hard, and in no C.ICJ showed distress. There waa no serious Infringement of the rules, although occasionally some of the Toowoomba men were Inclined to ride with more " devil-me-care dash" than discretion. Mr. Deacon, of Ips- wich, officiated as referee.


Toowoomba Seconds v. Brisbane


Tihe Seconds led off, the competitors being-Tooiwoo mlb'a : Messrs. S. Nolan (caiptaJln), C. Rolands, H. Hood, ami S. Benne'Ot ; and Brisbane : Messrs. Alexander (captain), back ; A. T. Peltson, No. 3 ; A. Rule,   No. 2 ; and Spencer Browne, No. 1. The flnst bout opened with the Toowoomba team playing with the wind, winch blow dead between the goals. The ball was kept in fairly safe ground for some time, any advantage being posgnssed by Brisbane, until Roberts carried the ball down past tho Brisbane goal boundary, but It was again run to the opposite end of the field. Rally and counter rally followed, till at length the visitors got the ball well home, and the first goal was secured by Hood for Too- woomba. The visitors kept the ball well up again till time was called. The second bout wa? a game of see-saw. Just at half-time, however, Brisbane narrowly saved their goal in a melee I round the poles. Although the ball

was In neutral ground again at time, the visitors had the best of the maiden bout The third round opened Imme- diately with rather a soft thing for the Downs men, and it was apparently ow- ing to it being an easy thing to secure a goal that, in the excitement of the moment, it was missed. The ball had been run up very fast by the visitors to the 'Brisbane end, and in the scrim- mage to protect its flight it rieochetted off the leg of a pony, and stopped dead five or six yards from the goal, but exatíifly opposite to it But, like an easy caöeh ait cridkert, it was missed by I the honsaman .who suddenly found hlan

soli called upon to give It a gentle tap. The erles of "(Be careful" only made

j Mm over-careful, Tbere was a mlsqj

and ¡the bail was instantly squared arway\ by Brisbane, who, following np ttoeir luck, made a determined a&_ault, and Jüsít at half-time recovered lost ground by securing a goal. The bout was a lively one t'hroughuut, the local men continuing their attack with so inueh spirit that for some time the visitors had to play round their oun vantage ground for safetj, there belüg one dangerous miss. At length an opening was made by Kobens, who dhased the ball iuto the Brisbane teiri tury, and sbortly afterwards the % iai tors secured a second goal. It was after eundawn when the fourth and de- cisive bout was played, aud after a de tetuuined contest Brisbane secured a goal, rhus making two goals each. Late as it was, however. It was decided to finally settle tlhe game, and in the play oEf the Toowoomba Seconds obtaining the first goal won the honours ot the day.

Toowoomba Firsts v. Brisbaue Fiists.

Tlie players were : Toowoomba-A. M'Phee (captain), No. 3; ,N. Caswell, No, 2 ; J. Jennings, No. 1 ; and Di. Woodward, back. Brisbane-'A. Feez (captain), No. 2 ; Captain Tyne, No. 3 ; D. Rich, No. 1 ; and J. E. Trude, back. The fiist bout opened wirti slow play for a time, but the iu>t goal was secured by Brisbane. It was dashingly played for by Feez and hit by Rich. Then followed a game of battledore aud Shuttle co. k, and eventually the ball got luto the vicinity of the Toowoomba goal, those Who were holding it playing for safety ; but at half-time the bali liad been forced back as far as the boundary. After a minute's ©pell, the ball was hit all over the field, often out of bounds, and at the close of the round the visitors held it at close quarters to their opponents' goal. Play in the second bout was more free and fast, the ball belüg often hidden by the dust, and shot tram point to point. A fine run, however, was made to the Brisbane end with the wind, and the first score to Toowoomba was hit by Jennings. Reversing, the visitois rode against the wind, and forcmg the game kept the ball about the Brisbane goal, eventually getting it through during a scrimmage. Not to be outdone, Bris- bane followed with increasing vigour, and hit their second goal. Shortly afterwards time «as called, the bout having been marked by «îouie line sweeping strokes and dashing runs. Dhe scores being equal-two goals each -the final bout it was expected would decide the match. Up to half-time the local meu had had Wie best ol' the play, but afterwards the visitors maintained their attack on the coveted passage with dangerous persistence, but at each exciting moment tlhe ball was skilfully Bquared along the boundaries, and a dangerous run by Dr. Woodward was only interrupted by the dust, enabling the position to be lelieved. After ttiat a grand nish was made to the Too- woomba goal, but again the ball was played back. . A couple of sticks wore broken at the half-way, and in riding for the ball wl'th Jenuiugs, Feez's pony tupped and brought his -rider down a cropper. Neither was hurt, however, and play continued, but when the bell rang Wie game was equal, neither side (having secured an ad-


However, neither side was satisfied, and t!he players, af not the horses, were willing and ready to continue, which they did at once. But fate was against tfhe local unen, for within minutes the fateful hit was made by the visitors, who thus won the mutch by 3 goals to

SYDNEY, September 27. !

It was only the attraction of the . twenty-five mile race between Martin

and M'Donnell that drew a large attend- ance yesterday to the sports held'by the League of Wheelmen, as that body had aroused much resentment by its persis- tency m holding its meeting so as to clash with amateur fixtures. That race, however, was a grave disappointment, for it Was won easily (by 'Martin. The lollowlng are the results :

SPRING HAiNüBOAtP.-¡F. Eichler, 190 yard'?, 1 ; F. E. Shaw, 142 yards, 2 ; Stan .Fullick, 150 yards, 3. Won by half-a length. Time, 2min. 14 2/5sec. ,

OH ALLENGE RACE, for £50, 25 miles.-W. Martin, 1 ; A. B. M'Donnell, 2. The start was made from opposite points, so that one man should not wait for the other. M'Donnell gained some- what on the first five laps, but then (Martin drew upon him, and at the seven- teenth lap was at his wheel. M'Donnell

fell then, and his opponent slowed do%vn | to let him mount again. The rest of the race was a weary wait for the public, as (M'Donnell, ..though completely at Martin's mercy, would not give up, though urged to do so. Martin just kept ahead of him at a slow' pace, and won by a length. Time, lh. lGmln.


INVITATION SCRATCH RACE ; 5 miles.-A. O'Brien, 1 ; W. T. M'Combe, 2 ; W. Martin, 3. Nine others started. O'Brien won by a foot, Martin being three lengths off.

SYDNEY, September 27.

The City of Brisbane Sailing Club held their opening regatta in the Milton Reach on Saturday afternoon. The programme comprised five races, which were all keenly contested, and provided good finishes. It might perhaps have been wiser if the committee had been content with fewer races, as it was almost impossible for the umpire to fol- low them all closely, much less the spectators. A better afternoon for sail-   ing could not have been desired. The sun was not too hot, and the steady strong north-east breeze gave the skip- pers ample opportunity to brlng out the best points of their boats. The reach presented a beautiful sight, there being many private craft, as well as the com- peting boats, on the river. The 22 footers' race fell to the Caneebie, and in the 18-footer class the Vera just managed to beat the Truant, which was splendidly handled by Mr. G. I. Dick- son. The Myee pulled off the 16-footers' race by thirty seconds, and the Vida proved herself the smartest of the 12 footers. As is usually the course adopted by this club, the handicaps were given at the start and the boats sent away on the flag system. The steamer Young Mat was the flagship, and car- ried a large number of spectators, and on theriver banks, too, were many per-   sons eagerly watching the races. The officials for the day were :-Umpire, Mr. M. Colclough ; starter, Mr. P. Wood ; handicapper and timekeeper, Mr. J. Wil- liams. Appended are the details of the

racing :


For 22ft. boats; starting point between starter's iboat and South Brisbane side of the North Quay Ferry, up stream to

(buoy aibove Mr. T. Finney's residence, I Toowong, leaving buoy on starboard hand, thence round starting point, leav- ing rounding mark on starboard hand, thence over the same course a second time, and finishing between starting point and southern shore, leaving start- ing buoy on port hand. First prize, trophy value £3 3s. and £1 ; second,

15s.; third, 5s.

Caneebie (T. Goodall) scratch. 1

Ettie (W. Wain), scratch. 2 Zenobia (W. Slawson), 2%min. 3i

The Mary (Glen BPal), 3min. allow- ance, also started. At starting the

Mary and Zenobia miscalculated the | time, and having to come back, lost nearly thirty seconds each. The Ettie got away smartly a few seconds before the Caneebie, and a straight run was made for the buoy. The Mary hoisted a topsail smartly, but the Zenobia's crew were slow in getting out their top- sail and spinnaker. The Caneebie made a big show of kites, setting a topsail and big ringtail. The other boats gradually hauled up on the Mary, the order of rounding the upper buoy for the first time being-Mary, Zenobia, Ettie, Caneebie. It was a dead thrash down, and on this point the other boats soon left the Mary, the Zenobia and Ettie getting to windward of her on the first

'tack. The Caneebie thrashed along in | splendid style, and at Bennett's Bridge had got into the windward berth. The Ettie and Zenobia, however, hong on well, the order and times of rounding the Quay mark-boat being-Caneebie, 4h. 7min. lsec; Zenobia, 4h. 7min. 37sec; Ettie, 4h.8min.5sec; and Mary,'4h. lOmin. 12sec. All kites were soon out again. The Caneebie steered a good course, but the Zenobia and Ettie hugged the north shore too closely. * The Caneebie was

first round the upper buoy, followed by i the Zenobia and Ettie, and from this point the race was the Caneebie's, bar accidents. On the thrash home the Ettie had her work cut out to weather the Zenobia, and the two boats made a desperate fight for second place, the Ettie just getting there on the rnark." The finishing times were-Caneebie, 4h, 4Gmin. 35sec; Ettie, 4h. 47,mln. ISsec; Zenobia, 4h. 47min. I9sec; and Mary, 4h. 4Smin. 30sec. The Caneebie was skippered by her owner, Mr. T. Goodall,

who sailed a splendid race. i

third, 5s.

I Vera (J. K. Whereat), scratch. 1

Truant (G. J. Dickson), 3min. 2 Satanita (A. F. Dearnley), 6min. 3

The Satanita was a long way behind in starting, and lost over a minute and I a-half. The Truant got a good start,

and the Vera was timed to the second. The Truant got up a topsail and square

sail, and the Vera sported a big spin- I naker. On the run up the Truant sue- , ceeded in overhauling the Satanita, the i order of rounding the top buoy for the first time being-Truant, Satanita, Vera. On the thrash down the Truant sailed very well, and the Vera took advantage of every puff. The order and times of rounding the starter's boat for the first time were-Truant, 4h. 13min. Ssec; Vera and Satanita, 4h. 15min. 7sec. Sanberg soon had all extra sails on the Vera, and at Bennett's Bridge the Truant, bowling along at a tremendous pace, led, with the Vera beating the Satanita. The Truant rounded the top buoy first, with the Vera thirty seconds later. On the thrash home, the Vera slowly but surely worked up on the Truant, and at Bennett's Bridge had the race in hand. The finishing times were -Vera, 4h. 53mln. 45sec; Truant, 4h. 54min.; and Satanlta, 4h. 54min. 37sec.

The Wairuna (A. Wood), ½min.; Ar- foma (F. Perry), ½min.; and Dolly Var- den (Dickson and Williams), scratch, also started. Most of the boats got away well to time, and set spinnakers and topsails. The Myee made good headway on the run up, the order of rounding the upper buoy for the first

time being–Walruna, Irene, Myee, Dolly   Varden, May, and Daisy. On the thrash   down the Wairuna swamped, and the   Myee weathered them all, the times of

rounding the mark boat being-Myee,   4h. 23min. 15sec; May, 4h. 24min. 25sec; Irene, 4h. 25min. 4sec; Dolly Varden, 4h. 25min. 6sec; and Daisy, 4h. 25mln. 42sec. On the run up again the Daisy and   Irene improved their positions, the order   of rounding for the last time being   Myee, Daisy, Irene, with the others well

up. On the thrash home the Dolly Var-    

den showed up, and at Bennett's Bridge was second boat to windward, the Irene

and Daisy being close up. The finishing   times were-Myee, 5h. 10min. lsec;   Daisy, 5h. 10min. 41sec; May, 5h. 11min. 34sec; and Irene, 5h. 11min. 55sec.

A race for 10ft. dingeys was also sailed,

Albert v Oakfield.

This match was îcsumed at the Ex- hibition Ground, and the wicket was in first-class order. At the conclusion of

last Saturday's play, each side had an I innings, the Alberts scoring 129 against the Oakfields' 62. In the Alberts' eecond Innings, a splendid -3tart was made by Crouch and Cowan, the first wicket putting on 100. The innings finally closed for 204. Cowan contributed 55 and Crouch 51, but the former's innings was certainly the best. Crouch should have been caught in the long-field on three or four occasions, and certainly had a deal of luck in his hitting. Kit- chen contributed 30, but the innings was by no means up to his usual form, al- though only actually marred by one easy chance to Austin. The Oakfields had only a little over half-an-hour left for ' batting, and In that time lost four wickets for 55, the match thus ending in a draw. The following ' are 5 the

scores :

Graziers'-A Team v. Limestones.

This match was finished on Saturday, ending in a draw. The Graziers re- sumed their innings with Jones 66 and O'Brien 13, both not out. The feature of the afternoon's play was the splendid batting form of Jones and Atkins. The former made 173 runs by sterling cricket, and showed the onlookers some of his old form. His long drives and varied strokes were a treat to look at. Atkins's cricket was in every way equal to that of Jones ; and his 125 runs were made in an hour and three-quarters. At the close of the game the home team had secured '404 runs for the loss of six wickets. Both Jones and Atkins re- ceived an ovation on returning to the shed for their fine performances. Mr. Francis will give each batsman a pre- sentation bat. Appended are the

Rosebanks v. Rovers.-These teams, met at the Association Ground, Bowen Bridge l', in the final tie for tihe Brisbane Charity Cup. There was a poor attendance. The Rovers won the toss and decided to play with a strong wind in their favour. The (bulk of the work naturally fell to the Rosebank badi» in this half. These ' acquitted themselves credira/bly, ibut the Rovers managed to put three goals through be- fore the call of half-time. The last of these the referee was unavoidably re- sponsible for, the bail a'f'ter being well cleared rebounding off him straight into goal, when the Rovers had little dilli culty iu scoring. The Rosebanks scored just before the Whistle sounded hailf-'ti'mc. With the wind in their

favour, the home team were able to ,

harass Hie opposing Ijacks ; Indeed, I

during t'he second half the ball seldom left the Rovers' goal.

Tihe Rovers did not äcore lu this half, so that the game ended-Rovers, 3 goals ; Rosebanks, 2 goals. Mr. T.

Jenkinson was referee. I
