For the sixth occasion in the history of
Australian rowing the question of inter-
state supremacy has been decided upon
Queensland waters, and as usual it has
been accompanied by all the eclat that
Queensland's sporting community could
possibly lend to it. Not since
19o4 has a similar race been de-
cided here, it being a movable fixture,
in which the capitals of all competing

there is no opportunity of it palling upon
the Brisbane public, who look forward
with keen interest to Queensland's turn.
The sculling race was decided over
a 2½ miles course, starting on

Dennis being last to appear. The condi-
tions were perfect for the scullers, a light
being at the flood, and the water smooth

light rain began to fall, which increased as
the race proceeded, and before the finish
it was difficult to distinguish the competi-
37 strokes to the minute. Towns rowing
nicely at 33 moved slightly to the lead. Den-
Richards slightly behind rowing at 36.

Coverdale appeared to have a slight lead
at the ¼ mile, but Towns was quickly
