RANDWICK TRAINING NOTES.
[BY SPECIAL WIRE.]
(Fnou Our Cohhksi'oîident.)
lhere was not a great amount of interest- ing work done at Randwick on Saturday. Kay nor sent Arsenal and Wycombe a lull mile and three quarters. The old horse went in a lazy Btyle, but tbe pair travelled the last mile and a half in ¿min 53sec, and finished together. Un the tan, The Australian Peer and Melos were given a mile and a half at a very Btout pace. Intact it was by far the best gallop of theda), as they travelled the laat once round in 2min ¿.sec. Merriment did easy work, and Ant.ous galloped two miles and a halt in his usual taking sly le, while Manton, aasiated by Tilly over the hrst part and Glen Elgin in the last mile, did au excellent mile and a hull, tbe last once round the course proper tvuh the hurdles out waa done in -'min. '22lsec, and the last mile in limn 53sec. l'liis bIiows that Manton ia coming on last, and is not near so big as sume people think. Singapore bent binecure oser a mile, but the pace waa not very sev ore, and Escort appeared to have more to say than Cranbrook alter a long cauter and a last run liait mile. The big horse appears to be getting hg' .er every duy Spice galloped a useful mile, smile Lava run a similar distance, and did it welk Amina also completed a sound milo while Colenso waa given once round ut a uaeful pace, Papua doing »mular work. Moluwk galloped a sharp halfmile, while Wilberforce put in a sharp an furlongs Jenny M ren lind somesvhut the beat ot Cock Hobin at the end ot a amartly run mile, and Tlie Bonce beat Too boon over six turlougs Old Pasha is going a trille freer than he did, but had no ahoca on, so that be ssas able to keep with 'Hie Gilt over a last rim mule.

PREMIERSHIP LIST FOR 1889.
The result of the match between South Melbourne and Geelong on Saturday as nearly as possible settles the question of premiership for this season. Indeed, the only possibility which can now affect it is the somewhat remote one of South Melbourne losing the two matches it has yet to play against Fitzroy and Richmond respectively and Carlton winning with its matches. In effect South Melbourne has won the premier-
ship from all clubs save Carlton. Even if either Port Melbourne or Essendon could win both their remaining matches, and South Melbourne lose both, the last-named club would still be ahead of them. How near they are to having actually won the honour of first place is shown from the fact that even with such a contingency as that already mentioned, Carlton winning and South Mel-
bourne losing both remaining matches, Carlton would only be the smallest fraction more than a point ahead. If South Mel- bourne and Carlton are both beaten next Saturday the premiership is won by the former, as its lead cannot be affected by any results of the last day of the season. If South Melbourne is defeated, and Carlton wins, then the former will not be perfectly safe until it has beaten Richmond on the closing day of the football season. The con- test for second place promises to be excep- tionally keen, as Carlton, Essendon, Port Melbourne, and Geelong all have a chance of gaining it. The points stand proportionally

SOUTH MELBOURNE V. GEELONG.
The second match between the South Melbourne and Geelong clubs, played at South Melbourne on Saturday, drew another fine attendance, the number on the ground being nearly 25,000. Vice-regal recog-
nition was given to the game the presence of Sir William Robinson, who saw tho greater part of the contest. On the kick off, South Melbourne forced the ball forward, Purdy and Wyatt being prominent until a free kick again at the South Melbourne for holding their opponents checked the advance. Baker, Talbot, Robinson and J. Reid exchanged marks cleverly, and Nolan And Page shone in turn for their respective sides, but Geelong were playing slightly the better game. Through the play of Baker and Armstrong, the South Melbourne goal was
momentarily in danger, but concerted efforts of O'Mears, Purdy and Kerr relieved it. Wilson then marked to Ryan, who tried for goal, and went very close. Talbot marked the kick-off splendidly, and the fighting was still round the South Melbourne goal. Baker passed to Reid, who made a very nice mark, and he sent it to Ryan, who made another good try for goal, but was net close enough. Burns, O Meara, and Kerr, in the South Melbourne ruck, gave the back players breathing time. Julien, Baker, and M'Shane all showed to advantage for Geelong but, helped by a free kick against Hickenbotham for holding the South Melbourne got an entrance in Geelong ground. M'Kay marked to M'Murray, who passed to Burns and he with a fine kick scored South Melbourne's first behind. M'Shane marked the kick- off and Robinson passed it on. A nice exchange of marks between J. Reid, M'Shane, and Julien ended in latter getting a chance but he made no use of it. Windley, in the centre, was seen to advantage both in marking and kicking, and Burns following up the effort placed the ball within range of the Geelong goal. Bushell marked to M'kay, who took a shot, the ball being stopped right in front, but instantly with a lucky kick out of the ruck South Melbourne scored their first goal. Before the the bell rang Morrison had a hurried shot at the South Mel-
bourne posts without scoring, and on changing over tho scores were-South Melbourne, 1 goal 1 behind; Geelong, 3 behinds. On continuing Bushell and M'Kay exchanged marks, and Burns had a try tor his side, but scored only a behind. Powell sent it across the front of the Geelong goal where Barrett marked, and passed on to Burns, who, with one of his fine kicks, scored second goal. Glen next had a chance very much to one and he, too, sent it across the front, where Burns once more got possession, but failed to score. Purdy then gave Clinton a chance, and another behind was scored for the South Mel-
bourne. The Geelong back, Nelson, conspicuous amongst them, finally relieved their goal, and up in opposition territory J. Reid marked to Tal-
bot, he in turn to Ryan, but this player was quite off in goal kicking, his try going across the front. O. Farrell scored a behind, and then, from a difficult shot, M'Shane kicked Gee- long' s first goal. In some fine wing play, Baker on the one side and Windley on the other were seen to much advantage. Hickenbotham, Ryan and O'Farrell forced it up to the South Melbourne end, and M Shane tried for a goal that was almost impossible. M'Sbane and Baker again forced the play, and the South Melbourne backs were so hard to it that one of them but the ball out near his own posts. It was thrown in, and J. Reid getting it kicked second goal with a hurried shot over his shoulder A. grand mark was made by Burns who was backed up by
M Murray and Windley. Then Backer showed his cool- ness and M Murray on the opposite side his dash. Windley was also cheered for a nice dodging run, and when the bell rang for half time the scores were -Geelong, 2 goals 5 behinds, South Mel- bourne, 2 goals 8 behinds. After some very good play by Burns, M'Lean and Brungor, Glen passed to M'Kay, but his shot only brought a behind. M'Lean, Furnell, and Hickenbotham were making it very merry, but Doran stopped them smartly and returned to the Geelong end where Kerr gave a mark to Clinton. He tried for goal and went very close to it. Following upon this there was some clever marking, in which M'Lean and M'Shane on the one side and Burns and Glen on the other were seen to effect. The Geelong forwards were playing rather loosely, and but for the weakness here the South Melbourne goal must have been several times in danger. Barrett had a shot at the Geelong posts and kicked well, but not straight enough. Conway and M'Shane then got it in position, and Baker went very close to the South Melbourne goal. Robinson also scored a behind, and the play for a time was very warm near that goal, but Burns, Glen and Wyatt, by an exchange of marks, relieved it, and Page and Kerr backing them up brought Geelong on the defensive. Bushell marked to Purdy, but nothing came of his try. The Page took a shot back over his own head, and kicked third goal for South Melbourne. Geelong replied with a dash, and O'Farrell marked within easy range. He is particularly neat kick, but this time was just on the wrong side of the post. An exchange of marks be-
tween Purdy, M Kay, and Windley left the latter in possession, and with a long running kick he just got it through making a fourth goal for South Melbourne soon afterwards were finally changed, the board show- ing- South Melbourne, 4 goals 6 behinds; Geelong, 2 goals 8 behinds. On continuing Bushell marked to Barrett, and the ball was sent straight through, but a Geelong man had touched it as it left Barrett's foot. The South Melbourne were, playing in fine form form. Page passed it to Clinton and he turned It to Purdy, in front, but M'Lean came in cleverly held being pushed behind got a free, kick, with an exchange of marks between M'Lean, M'Shane and Mullins fol-
lowed. The last- named had a try for goal, and though making a good kick, failed to get it. Geelong, from a sudden dash scored a rather poor behind, and M'Lean gave Mullins another try, but the kick was a very bad one. Julian got it, however, and did better, for
getting clear of the South Melbourne backs he ran up to within a low few feet scored third goal. Kerr with a fine mark passed it on to M'Kay, and Glen,
who was playing well, gave it to Purdy in a good position, but he missed an easy chance of scoring. In some hot play about the Geelong posts the players stopped, thinking that the ball had gone behind, when Clinton picked it up and promptly scored a goal.
Exchanges between M'Murray, Glen, and Barrett gave the latter a show and with a splendid kick he scored sixth goal. Some good marking, in which Glen and Burns were conspicuous, gave the latter a difficult shot, and he scored a behind. Barrett scored two more behinds, and when play ceased the
South Melbourne 6 goals 12 behinds. Geelong, 3 goals 10 behinds.
The game was a remarkably good one for the first three quarters, but after that South Melbourne wore down their opponents and won a good and excep- tionally fair game. For the winners-Burns, Glen, Windley, Kerr, O'Meara, Purdy, M'Murray, and Page played an admirable game, those conspicuous on the Geelong side being Baker, M'Shane, M'Lean Nelson, Hickenbotheam, J. Reid and Conway. J. Shaw was umpire for the match, and generally satis-
fied the spectators.
WILLIAMSTOWN V. NORTH MELBOURNE.
Teams from these clubs met on the Williamstown ground on Saturday, and the weather being remark- ably fine and pleasant between 2,000 and 3,000 persons were present. Although the home team again were easily defeated the game proved fairly interesting. The visitors won the toss, electing to kick towards the norther goal, which gave them the advantage of a slight breeze. Jones kicked off for Williamstown, driving the ball well away. North Melbourne soon had charge of it, and worked it along the south-west wing of the centre, some loose play by Williamstown facilitating this operation. The visitors worked it further along too the north, and then Abrahams, obtaining a mark, scored first goal of the day for North Melbourne in about five minutes from
the start. Box, of North Melbourne, threw away an excellent chance for goal. Then Tankard made an effort for the visitors, but was baulked through some smart play by Warren, of the home team. W. Johnston marked to Middleton, and the latter easily obtained second goal for North Melbourne. At last Williamstown had a chance, Fribbs marking to Gibbs and the latter essaying a goal, but the ball was stopped near the posts and sent right back to the North Melbourne end. Todd, the North Melbourne captain, obtained a mark from Gibson just as the bell rang, and he was allowed his kick, but nothing came of it. At quarter time the score was-North Melbourne 2 goals, 5 behinds; Williamstown, nil. The play became faster on resuming, and in three minutes Gib- son, marking to Abrahams, the visitors had third goal to their credit. The play was then all over the ground. Gibbs of Williamstown, obtained a mark, but the distance was too great for him to cover. The home team played much better now, and managed to keep the ball for some time about the goal they were seeking to force. Suddenly the visitors ran it back, and would have scored but for Warren, Tankard, Robertson, and Carlton, of North Melbourne, did some good marking, followed by some
general play. After M. M'Pherson marked to W.M'Pherson and from behind to Williamstown was
obtained, succeeded by another from Worroll. The score at half time was-North Melbourne, 3 goals 7 behinds, Williamstown, 2 behinds. At the com- mencement of the third quarter North Melbourne again very nearly had a goal in a few minutes from the start. Carroll receiving a mark from Williams, and shooting from a long distance Worroll then brought up the ball to Jasper Jones, who kicked it well in and Gibbs smartly seizing it put it through at an awkward angle-the first goal
or Williamstown being scored. This rendered matters exciting, Williamstown generally playing better. Gibbs had another shot for goal, but he only added to the number of behinds. The home team missed several good chances. At three-quarter time the game stood- North Melbourne, 3 goals 8 behinds Williamstown, 1 goal 5 behinds. At the commencement of the last quarter there was some very rough play in the north east wing, out of which Rushford marked to R. Gibson, who nearly scored. Middleton then securing a mark obtained fourth goal for North Melbourne brilliantly. The visitors had it all their own way for the rest of the period, the following being the final result :-
North Melbourne, 4 goals 13 behinds. Williamstown, 1 goal 6 behinds.
There were three fights amongst the spectators during the afternoon, both parties to one being arrested by the police, and placed in the lock- up
FOOTSCRAY V. RICHMOND.

The final result was :-
Richmond 5 goals 6 behinds Footscray, 2 goals 15 behinds.
ESSENDON V. FITZROY.
These teams met for the second time this year on Saturday afternoon on the Fitzroy ground. A con- siderable amount of interest was evinced in the match, and there was a good attendance. The visitors were captained by Fleming, and the home team by Worrall. In the first quarter two behinds were obtained for Essendon and one by Fitzroy. There are some good endeavours to obtain goals, but they were unsuccessful. Shortly after the com- mencement of the second quarter Sebire would have obtained a goal for the visitors but for the dexterity of Banks. A behind was then obtained for Fitzroy, when the ball traversed the ground and Stafford, snatching it from a scrimmage, kicking the goal of the game for Essendon. Some good passing now took place, the ball being conveyed from Millard to Melling and from Melling to Clearly, who kicked in the first goal for Fitzroy. At half time Essen- don had secured 1 goal 5 behinds and Fitzroy 1 goal 3 behinds. In the third quarter Rappiport kicked the second goal for Fitzroy, which was shortly fol-
lowed by a third for the same side by Wiseman. A three-quarter time the score stood- Fitzroy, 3 goals 5 Essendon: Essendon, 1 goal 6 behinds. In the last quarter Wiseman and Worrall obtained two goals for
Fitzroy. The Final result was-
Fitzroy, 5 goals 7 behinds
Essendon, 1 goal 7 behinds.
CARLTON V. MELBOURNE
A return match between these clubs was played on Saturday afternoon at the Friendly Societies' Garden, East Melbourne, in the presence of a fair number of spectators. The Melbourne team won the toss, and elected to play, towards the northern goal During the greater part of the game it was thought that the Melbourne team who were playing a good game, would have it all their own way, as the Carlton were not playing well together, and at the end of the first. quarter the Melbourne team had secured 3 goals and 2 behinds to their opponents' 1 goal 2 behinds. During the second quarter the Carlton rallied, but to no purpose and the general feeling was that the Carlton were playing a losing game, and at half time were one goal behind The result at three quarter time was-Carlton, 2 goats 4 behind: Melbourne 3 goals 3 behinds. In the last quarter the Carlton men rallied considerably and began to play a good game and did their best to raise their own score. From this out, the ball was kept well down in the Melbourne end of the field, and when time was called, the score was
Carlton 6 goals 8 behinds.
Melbourne, 5 goals 6 behinds.
PORT MELBOURNE V. ST. KILDA.
The return match between these clubs was played
on Saturday afternoon on the Port Melbourne Foot- ball- oval. There was a poor attendance of spectators, owing, no doubt, to the fact that neither club has any chance for the premiership. The visitors won the toss, and Sharp kicked off, and immediately after Sutherland secured the home team' s first goal. The ball then travelled all over the ground, and Fraser (a new addition to the Port Melbourne team) had no difficulty in adding another goal to their total. When the ball was kicked off the St. Kilda goal was once more endangered, but their back men defended well, and nothing was scored by the the assailants. Another determined onslaught by tho home team resulted in a goal being kicked by Maxwell. A fourth was obtained by M'Knight, Graham and Muir kicked fifth and sixth respectively, and just before half time Ward added a seventh, and the scores stood-Port Melbourne, 7 goals 9 behinds , St. Kilda, one behind. The game to this stage was a most one sided one, the play being always at the visitors' goal, and lacked the dash which characterises a good display of football. In the second half the St. Kilda team managed to kick two goals, while their opponents amassed a total of 14, out of which number Fraser was responsible for
four. The final result was: -
Port Melbourne, 14 goals 23 behinds. St. Kilda, 2 goals 2 behinds.
Mr. H. Wilson, as central umpire, gave entire
satisfaction to both sides.
UNION JACK F.C. V. BRUNSWICK.
The above teams met on Saturday. The result was- Union Jack, 2 goals 11 behinds; Brunswick, nil.
