in favour of batsmen. Things were going badly
against New South Wales, and there was a narrow
escape to Hopkins, who in backing up for a stroke
just got back before Jessop threw down the wicket.
The decision favoured the batsman, and the ball going
away towards the fence, two runs were notched to
Poidevin's credit. At 157 Hopkins put one up softly
close to wicket, but point could not get to the ball.
Jessop relieved Barnes at 164, and in
his first over Hopkins made a magnificent
drive into the members' pavilion for
five, a stroke which was followed by loud cheers.
Braund now had not more than three men on the
off, point, cover, and mid-off. Hopkins was now 31
and his companion 12. The fielding was splendid,
especially that by Jessop, who was accorded much
applause for some wonderfully clever fielding in stop-
ping a drive by Poidevin. The run-getting again
became slow, 15 minutes' play yielding no more than
a couple. At 177 Hopkins just touched one from
Jessop, and was held by Lilley. Hopkins was in for 1
hour 10 minutes for 36 and played attractive cricket.
He hit one 5 and four 4's. Jessop, whose one wicket
had cost 27, made way for Barnes, the total being 180.
Kelly, who joined Poidevin, quickly got to 8, but at
this he stood for a long time. His wasted efforts to
hit Braund to leg caused some amusement to the
spectators. Poidevin, who also moved along
slowly, varied the monotony with an occasional
pretty stroke. He was three-quarters of an
hour getting 25. Jessop came on again at
190, the changes were being rung at the northern
end, but Braund had bowled continuously from the
southern end from the time he relieved Gunn
shortly after play commenced. At 200, which had
occupied exactly 3 hours, Gunn was tried at the
northern end, and at the finish of his first over
adjournment for afternoon tea took place, the scores
being 201—Poidevin 26 and Kelly 8.

THE PASSING OF THE AMEER. HOW HABIBULLAH WAS CROWNED. (Article), The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954), Saturday 23 November 1901 page Article 2015-01-21 00:51 According to this stor\ tho late Ameer had a

dtath enabled Habibullah to complete his arrange-
ments for ensuring a peaceful accession
According to this story the late Ameer had a
paralytic seizure in the third week of September, but
his illness was kept secret. On the 28th, feeling the
end approaching, he summoned his family, the
officials, and the chief citizens of Cabul, all his sons
being present except Afzal Khan, a boy of 13. Hav-
ing gathered these around him, the dying Ameer then
said :—" When a king becomes old, infirm, and near
his end he always desires to nominate a successor.
I wish to have my successor settled now. Consider
among yourselves whom you believe fit to succeed me,
and name him to me."
The listeners, affected to tears, declared that they
desired Habibullah. The Ameer thereupon directed
Habibullah to receive his sword, a belt set with
precious stones, and a large volume, presumably con-
taining his will and instructions for the management
of the State. He next ordered his younger sons to
place the crown on their elder brother's head, and
then dismissed the audience. After this the Ameer
sank rapidly, and died on October 1 ; but his death
was kept secret until the morning of October 3, when
Habibullah announced it to the durbar.
This story, says the " Times " correspondent, is
probably true, as the concealment of Abdurrahman's
death enabled Habibullah to complete his arrange-
ments for ensuring a peaceful accession.

Some time ago the Queensland Government
represented to Lord Kitchener that some of the meat
companies in this State were preparad to tender for
meat for the army in Africa at a lower rate than
the Imperial Government then was paying. This
morning a telegram was received from the Director
of Army Supplies, Pretoria, informing the Govern-
ment he was sending a supply of tender forms for
army meat contracts, also covering advertisements
calling tenders for a large number of meat
supplies for insertion in the local press. The
supplies are to run April 1, 1902, for a period of
one year. Tenders close on January 6 next year.
As the time for tendering is very limited it will be
necessary to cable tenders.
A deputation consisting of several labour members
of Parliament, representatives of workers' associations,
and others waited on the Premier to-day to urge that a
bill be introduced this session for compulsory arbi-
tration in trade disputes on similar lines to the New
Zealand Act. The Premier said there was no time to
introduce such a measure this session. He could
not promise to bring in a compulsory bill, but might
introduce a voluntary bill. The proceedings were
largely of a conversational character, but the Pre-
mier maintained a firm attitude against introducing a
compulsory arbitration measure.
The steamer Mareeba bumped into the wharf at
Rockhampton last night. She cut several planks
clean through and caused other damage, but the
vessel herself was unhurt.
A Charleville message states that the thunder-
storms appeared to be breaking to the west. At
Charleville last night and to-day storms were all
round town. Several heavy falls were noted. Over
2in. fell.
