5 ~ A \.VESTERN PROVN~E XV.' NASMUCH as a frtnight will.s~e lcal. cr~cketers engaged with ur eagerly. expected visitrs, it is natural that J speculatin shuld turn t the prbable representatives f Western Prvince cricket. The XV. that will meet Hawke's X. in the first match will be an undeniably strng ne at all pints f the game. but mre especially in the bwling department. Of curse, while the mst imprtant trial game has still, at the time f writing, t be decided, it is n easy matter t make an accurate selectin f a team. There isjmrevsr the difficulty f determining upn the inclusin r therwise f men wh have failed t maintain reputatins, and have fr the time being, at any rate, lst their frm. As is always the case, the chice f the first eight r nine men presents n difficulty whatever; it is the level medicrity f the ast few men that is always s sre a trial t a Selectin Cm- ~mittee and s fruitful a surce f discntent. This is, hwever, almst inseparable frm the chsing f an X. r XV., s that c:.nmittee and players alike must prepare t face the inevitable with as gd a grace as pssible. Cmmencing then in the usual way with the wicket-keep, it will be apparent that in this respect the Western Prvince suffers if anything frm au embarms de richesses. Prince, Castens and Richards, wh are all available, are each and all much abve the average standard withut either displaying any marked superirity ver the ther. Prince is the quickest and mst brilliant, and has,.mrever, all his best years befre him, whereas Castens, wh is generally regarded as his mst dangerus rival, is, in additin t being smewhat shrt f practice, a man wh is n lnger n the upward grade as a cricketer. nasmuch as the encuragement f new bld is the plicy that always pays best in the lng run, the chice shuld almst certainly fall nthe ld Dicesan, whse frm this seasn has been cnsistently gd. Passing frm the keeper t the disturbers f the sticks, the task f chsing ur men shuld be a very simple ne. N ne culd dream f mitting Middletn, Rwe r Smith, even n the strength f the idle argument against the presence f three left-handers in the same team. N ne ever thinks f grumbling when an X. pssesses' three right-arm men and nly ne left. Mrever, thugh all leftbanders the abve tri are really very dissimilar in style and methd, s that the apparent sameness is withut real fundatin. Fr a fast bwler there can be n dubt that unless Willughby's frm displays a wnderful deteriratin in the frthcming C.T.-W.P. game, he will, t use a turf phrase, " catch the judge's eye." With these fur at his cmmand, the Captain shuld have small cause fr anxiety n the scre f dismissing even such batsmen as are included in Hawke's X. fr a reasnable ttal. Fr it must be remembered that the bwlers will als receive cnsiderable assistance frm the strangeness t the visitrs f the cnditins and surrundings, nt t mentin the fur extra men in the field. Pssibly sme peple might fancy that the inclusin f Kuys as an extra fast bwler "auld be desirable, but inasmuch as there will be a large amuut f gd change bwling f all srts and paces in the team, it is questinable whether anther bwler wuld be required sufficiently t make his inclusin a surce f strength, Turning t the batsmen, it is nt s clear whm the eye f the Selectin Ummittee will rest n with favur. Street, Richard, and Hearne have all been making runs lately and are nw in grand fettle. They will, f curse, be the backbne f the willw-wielders, in cnjunctin with Prince, already chsen as the' stumper. Allen, wh, in additin t meeting with cnsistant success as a bat, is a very fine fi~ld, shuld be an abslute' certainty, as shuld be Luis SU.-ts, wh is nt nly a fine free bat but a very useful fast bwlei, whse light wuld have burned far mre brightly had nt the wealth f his club in this department caused it t be hid under a bushel. Bisset shuld get a place unless again unsuccessful in the C.T.- W.P. match, as shuld Francis, wh scres with the greatest regularity in rdinary games. Three places remain t be filled up, but t.d. s will be extremely difficult and will depend almst' entirely' n circumstances. Miltn, thugh he has played little 0' 0{) cricket this year, fr his fielding and captaincy alne wuld cme in, but whether he will play r nt is uncertain. W. H. Richards has taken t the game nce mre, but has nt yat quite 'recvered his ld frm with the bat. Saturday's match will settle pretty clearly whether he is still the fine bat man he nce was, and his nerve and experience will weigh largely in making a chice. Castens is an unknwn quantity. He will make his first appearance in a gd game this seasn fr the W.P.C.C. n the 4th, and if he gets runs and prves him elf t be in frm will f curse be chsen. At present hwever his inclusin wuld nt be justified. Vlley Van del' Byl has been cmpletely ut f frm with the bat, thugh he has made sme amends by bwling well nce mre. He is hwever smewhat weak in the field, and n present frm wuld, especially in view f the ample bwling at the cmmand f the captain, have t give way t bth Reid and Andersn, f whm the frmer has defence secnd t nne in the Prvince but appears t be lacking smewhat in nerve in big games, while the latter has emerged frm a temprary clud f misfrtune and nce mre piles n the bundaries merrily. Cap- Cn bbertsn t ha shwn <rne pretty batting and his. nire sme cn ideratin. Wbile the fate f m t be se ed b. e C.T -W.P. match. At flals.e;:ecfu-n re ty cch as 'j ---- J The big match-the return between the C.T. and W.P.-was begun n Saturday and was prductive f a clse g~me and sme generally unattractive cricket. Capetwn batting first ) made a fine start, Prince and Francis putting n 25 fr the first wicket, and Street, wh tk Prince's place, fllwing a gd example by playing free, if' a little lucky cricket, fr 27 ere being dispsed f, with 80 n the bard, by ne f the m?st marvellus catches ever seen n a cricket field, Miltn taking him high up at mid-ff with ne hand frm a terrific drive '. After his dismissal the bwlers held the upper hand, B'rancis sn retiring fr a mst patient and invaluable 42, but an.innings devid f grace f style r fine strkes. Allen, wh hit freely and altgether played very cnfident and sterlin~ cricket f?r 28, was the nly ther batsman t ffer much resistance. Smuts and Allen unfrtunately fr their side and fr the spectatrs, wh lve ~ hitter, played a stiff game, quite unnatural t ~hem, and were cnsequently quite at sea with the clever bwling f Smith. wh wrked like a giant fr his side, and Hearne, whse 3-26 was a 'surprise t mst peple, wh imagined his. bwling days were ver. Castens was ff-clur at the 'wicket, prbably wing t lack f practice. On the W. P. taking up the bat at abut half-past fur, Richards and Hearne st_arted' m~t cnfidently t Rwe and Willughby, but disaster dgged their ftsteps, Hearne playing n witb his scre at 7, while put ne f Rwe's up t Street jus~ wh~n he lk~d like staym? Richards, after gettini( 7, unluckily hit a full pitch f Rwe s, hard t Street, wh held it, and 3 were thus dwn fr 38. W. H. Richards after getting 0, but nt in his best frm, was yrked by Rwe, and Middletn clean beat Van del' Byl, wh S sa:dly dwn n his ruck at present-bke Kuys n the ther Side. Smith, hwever, played carefully, after having n~ r tw clse shaves, and stayed with Bisset t!l the c~ll f time, the pall' raising the scre frm 6 t 0 Wthut being parted! Smith nt ut 27, Bisset nt ut 2J, the runs, after sme painfully slw cricket at first, cming fairly fast in the last quarter f an hur. With five wickets t g, and nly 43 runs behind, the W.P.C.C. are in a very satisfactry psiti~n, especially as t~ey have batsmen like Castens Reid and Mltn t fllw, and f nly an early start is made' next Saturday shuld f~rnish a mst exciting day's cricket. f a cmmencement S made at 'clck punctually a very fine fight shuld ensue! fr the W.P. X is 50 per cent. mre pwerful than+that which suffered s disastrus a defeat last week. During the game a pint which is bund t give rise t much fd fr discussin and cntrversy amngst cricket authrities ccurred. Smith playing at a ball f Middletn's either slipped r started t run-the ball having been tuched by the bat and gne ff t leg- and his bat falling ut ~f his hand when h~ must have been a; yard r tw ut f his grund, struck the wickets. After a mment's hesitatin he began t walk away but n shuts frm the pavilin appealed t the Umpires, wh were evidently much puzzled t decide whether the batsman was ut, but eventually Mr. Daneel gave him the benefit f thedubt. the ther Umpire averring that the decisin did nt lie with him. T decide whether he was still in the act f playing; the ball r had c::npleted ding s when the bat hit the wicket was a very delicate questin and was. prbably the mst. interesting incident f a slw day's cricket.

6 Turning t the batsmen, it is nt s clear whm the eye f the Selectin Ummittee will rest n with favur. Street, Richards and Hearne have all been making rnns lately and are nw in grand fettle. They will, f curse, be the backbne f the willw-wielders, in cnjnnctin with Prince, already chsen as the sturnper. Allen, wh, in additin t meeting with cnsistant success as a bat, is a very fine field, shuld be an abslute certainty, as shuld be Luis Sm~s, wh is nt nly a fine free bat but a very useful fast bwler, whse light wuld have i burned far mre brightly had nt the wealth f his club in this department caused it t be hid under a bushel. Bisset shuld get a place unless again unsuccessful in the O.T.- W.P. match, as shuld Francis, wh scres with the greatest regularity in rdinary games. Three places remain t be filled up, but t..d. s will be extremely difficult and will depend almst entirely n. circumstances. Miltn, thugh he has played little r.n cricket tliis year, fr his fielding and captaincy alne wuld cme in, but whether he will play r nt is uncertain. W. H. Richards has taken t the game nce mre, but has nt yp.t quite 'recvered his ld. frm with the bat. Saturday's match will settle pretty clearly whether he is still tue tine batsman he nce was, and his nerve and experience will weigh largely in making a chice. Oastens is an unknwn quantity. He will make his first appearance in a gd game this seasn fr the W.P.O.O. n the 4th, and if he gets runs and prves himself t be in frm will f curse be chsen. At present hwever his inclusin wuld nt be justified. Vlley Van der Byl has been cmpletely ut f frm with the bat, thugh he has made sme amends by bwling well nce mre. He is hwever smewhat weak in the field, and n present frm wuld, especially in view f the ample bwling at the cmmand f the captain, have t give way t bth Reid and Andersn, f whm the frmer has defence secnd t nne in the Prvince but appears t be lacking smewhat in nerve in big games, while the latter has emerged frm a temprary clnd f..,.'" misfrtune and nce mre piles n the bundaries merrily. Capt. Outhbertsn t has shwn sme pretty batting and his claims will require sme cnsideratin. While the fate f mst f the -dubtful nes will be settled by the C.T -W.P. match. At present it lks as if the final selectin wuld be pretty much as fllws :-Prince, Middletn, Rwe, Smith, Willnghby, Street, A. Richards, Hearne, Allen, Smuts, Bisset, Francis, A. Reid and J. Andersn. Of curse if Miltn determines t play. experience makes his place a certainty, while a single gd innings n the part f Castens, Van der Byl r Outhbertsn r a failure n the partff several batsmen included in the abve selectin wnld me an exchange f places. As matters sta~~/ "hwever the XV. s4\nld be pwerful at all pints and shulp" d n discredit t i' "r the Prvince. / "'--,---.--;c_--/.,./,. ",:r LEATHERHUNTER.

Of the bwlers, N Nightingale came ut with splendid figures. The 0 twnspeple have nw nthing t cmplain f regarding the quality f the cricket t be seen n n the Recreatjn Grund, and it t be hped a. that they will tnm up in greater numbers in 0 mture. Prince's hitting was wrth ging a a lng way ~.eee, and n any ther grund he n wuld have gt duble the number f runs. He e als gave a gd shw lf..wicket-keeping, and i had a hand in the diemissal f fur men. The Pirates had- first inning's, Hartigan and D Mullen being the first pair f batsmen, nnes a.

The c start was nt lie prmising ne, Mullen-Oeirrg t taken at slip with nly ne run bked, liut Hartigan and Rupns pla.yed ea.refnly and well, and 27 runs were added befre they were separated, RUPUB, wh had scred 3, being.napped up a.t the wicket. Websl!er stayed fr sme time, and Nightingale w,ent n in jh,e place f nnes. The change wrked, fr Wth the Mst ball f' the new bwler's secnd ver Webster was dismissed (39-3-9), and tw runs later Hartigan was taken at the wicket; the latter had played very gd cricket fr his runs, and wal tp screr f the side; he made sme dangerus strke thrugh the slips, but, gave n chance that went t hsnd.

Nne f the thers gave much truble, and innings clsed fr 68. Nightingale came ut with very fine figures, n. capturing 6 wickets fr 7.!'uns.. Like the Pirates, the Buffs made a bad start, ei lsing nnes, WHO, with Dnne, pened.the B innings, with nly eight runs scred,.but Prince Gl and Dnne made alng stay, and the Pirates' tt& wal passed befre they were parted. h Bth played fine cricket, Prince scring faster-} a than his partner. Knwles and King started a the bwling, and they gave way t Wiltshire n and Hartigan, Parsns bjtving a brief trial-late~ - nbul; it was nt till Knwles had resumed th~t a separatin was effected, Dnne being smartly taken at mid-wicket, the ttal standing ' at 7. Twards the clse f his innings he gave 0\. a chance f stumping, the ball belliting Oakley, a! well as the 'bat)!man, but therwise hib innings tli 'was free frm' fault, and he and Prince are t be an cngratulated.upn their,~xcellent cric~et.

After naming players like nnes, Kernpie, Wimble and ne r tw ther trundlers- with fair reputatins, he cndescends t remark that, -as he hears that Middletn has imprved as.a bwler, he might be included i the team.

Such an admissin nly prves that he has nt kept himself psted re the result f impr- ( tant fixtures duringthe present seasn. Allen, by his perfrmances up t date, stands in the very frnt rank f Snth African cricketers, and wuld be picked by all sund and impartial judges f the game fr.such a trip, in preference t any f the players mentined abve, with the exceptin f thse sterling- cricketers Frank Hearne and Middletn. As was nly t be expected, the writer, being a Jhannesburg man, cannt di-scern a wiketkeeper wrtby f the name after Halliwell. t is evident that this great authrity has neve" seen - perhaps never heard-f Prince r Castens, either f whm, r thug-h perhaps nt s shwy, are cnsidered by thusands f peple t be very little if, indeed, at allinfel;im: t!lha.lli.well-at his very best.,- t wuld. d this gentleman, wh has taken upn himself the - selt-impsed task f selecting the team, a pwer f gd t be present at the crrtemplated turnament t be held at Newlands during Easter.

Ant! s 'we twere all ut fr 272-a ttal which 'a empllljiicprf f the strength f the ele ight dwn t the last man, Lees, in batting. The" Prvince bwling was excellent, and had their catching b-een better we. might well have been ut fr under 200. At the same time much f their fielding was A, and Hrwd, Snke, Rwe, A. Bisset, an nes particularly s, while Murray Bisset kept wicket neatly and effectively. Snke, right-hand fast, wh tk three wickets fr 7 runs, seemed t me t have mst" devil" in-his bwling, and was ften unlucky in beating the batsman and then missing the stumps; and Shrt, when he btains a better length, will be a dangerus bwler, fr he can make the ball break back rvery quickly. Whitehead, fast medium left-hand, wh is stated't be qualifying fr Warwickshire, sent dwn a dzen gd»: vers at the start, but he wuld be mre difficult t play if he bwled at r a little utside the ff stump instead [f hammering away at the middle and leg stumps. Rwe was unlucky, ~ and culd nt _ e..much falilng away frm -the Rwe wh used t win matches fr Suth Africa. Perhaps there is a little less" flick" than befre, but he still can turn the ball, and his accuracy f length makes him hard t drive. D 2

Hrwd cntributing-th e-quarfers f" the runs frm the bat; and their pare ip fr the third wicket added 37 runs. Snke layed magnifieently,. Off-ariving beautifully; and cutting anything like a shrt ball very hard past pint, while his back play was watchful and sund. His was the finer innings f the tw, and he deserved every run he made. He has imprved immensely since his visit t England, and in.sme respects is the mst finished batsman in r Suth Africa. Hrwd was a ittle lucky in giving tw ~h~e.~ "t tne bwler's and mid-ff's left hands in ne ver, and is neither s sund nr s gd as Snke, but he batted very well indeed, and his pull strkes were wnderfully well timed. Our bwling at ne perid was almst in a knt, but Crawfrd' pulled us t,hrugh, and at the clse f play seven wickets were dwn fr 95 runs.' T-day we wn easily by ten wickets, the Prvince's innings clsing fr 233, which left us nly 43 t win. ;r The results f ur first three matches are such as t fill 'us with cnfidence fr the future, thugh am fully cnvinced that a cmbined Suth African team will take a tremendus amunt f beating. Still, ur batting against excellent bwling has, s far, prved itself sund' and reliable, and with Blythe-wh std ut f

34 , 4 'THE WEEK'S CRCKET. The chief lcal matches f imprtance this week have been he cntinuatin f the \.C. vs. C.:6. match, the United Service -t' whse appearance's the bwling f Hendricks always lends sme measure f interest-versus the Dicesan Cllege, and the usue.l weekday cricket, ver nne f which was the public enthusiasm vilently excited. T tell the truth there. is very Beldam anything dne in. the lcal cricket wrld t startle the phlegmatic inhabitants f Capetwn int life-particularly n such warm weather as greeted players last Saturday. Spectatrs wh always imagine that cricket matches are played fr.their special amusement must have wndered at the' unselfishness which culd induce anyne t freg his pipe, the pleasant shade and idle ease, t vilently. exert himself in the scrching heat fr the benefit f thers la,~t Saturday. And fr nce in a way the mst exacting nlker might have been led.t wnder whether, after all, it isn't just pssible that sme.ther bject besides his particular edificatin is nt sught by - thedevfees f the King f Games.'.. Taking the last first that is.t slj.},-j:eyiewing.the~k~ cric'ket.- it Wn Oeseen that the Dcks. with the aid f the Willughbys and ther well-knwn cricketers, had smewhat the bsst f a draw with the W,P,C.C. Marshall hit remarkably well lr 49.r the W,P., whse smewhat weak X. at ne time was in sre straits. On the ther hand, Willughby made up fr his late ill success in the bwling line by batting in very decent frm. n fact he is by n means s weak in this department as peple imagine, being quite capable f making sme runs at any time. On Thursday the S. A. Cllege gave painful evidence f their weakness in a very feeble display against a mderate W.P. X. When will this Cllege prduce anther cricket match wrthy f its psitin amng the clleges f this cuntry? There is at least n excuse fr such wretched fielding as was witnessed last week. Challner f~ W.P. nce again shwed gd frm with the bat fr 77, and gives evidence f being a really useful man, his style being neat and his defence fairly strng. Mitchell and W. H. Richards,,wh, just at present, is in very gd frm, als scred freely, 248 fr 7 wickets being the state f affairs at the clse. The. 8,A.C. were dispsed f fr 88, Bertie Graham's curly nes. prving mst destructive. Taintn alne shwed gd frm fr his team, his batting being excellent in every way. ''he Dicesan Cllege, thugh deprived f the services f Andersn, Reid and Van Renen, had a lng' way the best f their meeting with the U,S,C,C. Jnes hit remarkably well fr his 68., Last year this batsman's perfrmances gave prmise f cnsiderable excellence in the near future, but these hpes.have nt this seasn been realised as he has played but little, and appears t have lst his keenness t a great extent. De Kck, a fast bwler, wh cmes t the Cllege trm the Wynberg Schl, prved a useful recruit, capturing five f the seven wickets that. fell. Altgether, in the absence f,their cracks, the.perfrmance f the Bishps was very creditable indeed, and speaks well fr their strength and pluck. Hendricks again met :with little success, and the ac] that he is cnstantly played with ease by men f n particular ability in rdinary games seems t a great extent t discunt the reputatin his terrific pace and perfrmauces n bad grunds in small matches have earned him.. The enrmus reserve strengthf the C.T.C.C. is mre cnclusively prved n each succeeding Saturday. With their " pr's" away and all their leading men engaged in the M.C, game, they nevertheless defeated with ridiculus ease a club s strng as.the Gardens. The latter made 09 (Bamfrd 32), but the'c.t,c.c: ran up n less than 238 fr 2 wickets.

41 THE WEEK'S CRCKET. Befre dealing with the ntewrthy incidents f the games f the past few days a wrd r tw n the excessively" bad frm" shwn by the Transvaal in the selectin f the X. f Suth Africa t play there, seems necessary. Frm the Western Prvince Hearne and Middletn have been chsen, and Rwe and Willughby ignred. The last place has been left pen, and 4ith a view t selectin Hendricks has been asked-t cme up fr a frtnight t practice under the eye f the Selectin Cmmittee. Thugh regretting that Rwe shuld have been passed ver, the presence f nnes is a mre r less satisfactry explanatin. Bnt that Hendricks, wh has been debarred n principle-and a very cmmendable and necessary principleby the lcal Unin, wh are indisputably the prper persns t pass the verdict n lcal men in matters f this descriptin, shuld have been apprached in the manner that seemed gd in the eyes f the Transvaal, is a mst scandalus exhibitin f bad taste and a mst ffensive slight t the W.P. Cricket Unin. The psitin f the lcal Unin shuld Hendricks be playedand with anything like success-will be rendered difficult in the extreme, and they will d well t mark the disgust which the actin f the Transvaal has raised in the Prvince by refusing t allw their men t take any part in the game. Thugh admitting that Willughby has nt been thrughly tested as yet, it is still clear that n sane persn culd regard him as sufficiently inferir t Hendricks t necessitate s shameful a breach f etiquette as that f which the Transvaal Unin has been guilty. ''here is still time fr the Unin-if it was the Unin's wrk-t retrieve this fatal errr, which must create the bitterest animsity, and it is hard t believe that cricketers like Rutledge, Seccull and nnes culd have cuntenanced, r can cuntenance, s flagrant a breach f cmmn curtesy. n his ntes last week ur Jhannesburg crrespndent's unfavurable cmparisn f the Capetwn amateur batting with that f the Transvaal amateurs raised a questin which has f late Leen puzzhng lcal entblls:.:jgsts yery~ Tha.l practically all the run-getting here was dne by the prfessinals while the amateurs failed miserably, displaying the feeblest pssible frm, is undeniable. That the dashing cnfidence f Rutledge and Halliwell presents a very remarkable cntrast is alsc a fact beynd questin. The cnclusin t be drawn frm. the utter inability f the ne centre t master the visitrs' attack and the freedm with 'which punishment was dealt ut by the representatives f anther leaves very bvius cnclusins t be drawn. On the unpalatable nature f these inferences t the Capetnian it is unnecessary t enlarge, but at the same time the cmplete failure f lcal m sn des admit f a simple and nt unsatistactry =xplauatiu. While men like Rutledge and Halliwell are seasned and experienced veterans wh have played a leading part in all the turnaments fr the last five r six years-nt t mentiu the 'trip t England-and thus enter upn games such as thse versus Lrd Hawke's men withut being impressed with any undue sense f the imprtance 'f the ccasin, batsmen like Prince, wh are yunz, have had practically n experience f. itnprtant matches, and feel that the making r marring f their reputatins rests mainly n their perfrmances during these games, are bund t be at an enrmus disadvantage. Hence the dashing, reslute style successfully adpted by the ld campaigners is cnspicuus by its absence in men like Prince. The critics immediately laud the ne t the skies and cndemn the ther in unmeasured terms as wrthless in a big game. Yet anyne wh has watched Prince slashing up his 60 r 70-as he has ften dne this seasn-against gd prfessinal bwling in the W.P. v. C.T., r M.C. v. C.B. games, must be impressed with the fact that fr natural ability, ease. and grace f style and pwer, he is nt ne whit behind Halli- :S,el!, and prbabiy;,!> the latter's superir. t is all a questin f time and experience with a man like Prince. n fact the same yuth and inexperience was the main characteristic f all tbe Prvince amateurs, and was evidently respnsible fr their feeble displays. But the examples f Gunn, "Bbby" 'Abel, and Frank Hearne, whse first attempt.s in cunty cricket resulted in averages f abut, 2 and 3, reminds us that the sttlne-tlrat.he-btlittle despisedthas befre nw Decme e uea f the crner. Thugh the fruit f inexperience is ften bitter, that bitterness is nt peculiar t the Suth African climate, and therefre there is n cause fr despndency, and n need fr hasty cndemnatin. The mst interesting part f Saturday's M.C. v. C.B. game was the fine batting f Ellinger 86, Hearne 83, and Prince 68. The first-named, a late arrival, is a frmer captain f the Marlbrugh X-the schl Miltn and Dawsn-Thmas hail frm -and a. thrughly sund bat. His free, cnfident and reliable style f cricket shuld prve s, great surce f strength t the \Y.P. club, with whm he has thrwn in his lt. Hearne als added lulo her fine innings t the list that has made the ~ quite a, red-letter ne fr the ld Kent man in his C~:a::;.al' :peld', =C6;.

42 asty cnaemnatlon".--~--- The mst interesting part f Saturday's M.O. v. O.B. game was the fine batting f Ellinger 86, Hearne 83, and Prince 68. The first-named, a late arrival, is a frmer captain f the Marlbrugh X-the schl Miltn and Dawsn-Thmas hail frm -and a thruguly sund bat. His free, cnfident and reliable style f cricket shuld prve 2, great surce f strength t the W.P. club, with whm he has thrwn in his lt. Hearne als added anther fine innings t the list that has made the present year quite a red-letter ne fr the ld Kent man in his Olnial experiences. Smith, later in the innings, played excellently-albeit luckily -fr 46 nt ut. The certainty with which he gets away straight balls t fine leg is truly wnderful, fr a riskier strke cannt well be imagined. The rest f the M.O. batting was very pr, befre Rwe and Graham's curly nes, the bail as usual being much in evidence. Rwe bwled well twards the end and just after lunch, but is t fnd f his ff break and t seldm endeavurs t get men caught au the ff-a pint wherein be might with advantage take a lessn frm Smith. Graham had bad luck but is necessarily an expensive bwler at the best f times. -~---~ -_""L~~~~'~'..,..., C.-@!:J)l~e, c Hd gsn - b Rwe... Vi J. W. n-n, lbwb Rwe.,; J.

45 THE C RRE CUP. NOTES ON THE PLAY. After a spell f fine cricket weather, it was ' reserved fr the final and therefre mst im-, prtant match f the turnament t be played i under trying circumstances. An.almst cntinuus heavy rain.fell frm Sunday frenn. t well n in t Munday, with the result that- t the Prvince grund had the appearance f a vlei, and with the sun in a hesitating md, l and the ra~n cluds still mre r less threaten - i mg, it was dds n there being n phy n Easter Mnday Twards nn, and the 'rain.atall hlding ff, effrts were made t get rid f the surplus water, ana a small army f grundsmen with blankets began t mp up the pls f water in the vicinity f the pitch; but even then it was nt pssible t make a start till Despite the unfavurable turn the weather had taken, the attendance was a success, and by 3'30, when it began t spread that play had heen resumed, a crwd f ver 2,500 was present, and it was thrughly enthusiastic. t seems that the decadence f cricket-wrshipgd cricket-has nt yet set in. There seems t be i, mral in all this, but perbaps it will be understd withut being labured. The game between _the best tw cricket teams in Suth Africa is full f pints f pasisn and critici m. t is' an extremely difficult task t set ut,vhy this team-rs-' the better than the ther, hut mst lcal critics agree that the Prvince is a lng way the best as an all rund team.. And this in spite f the fact that twelve mnths has seen such a big change in the persnel f lcal cricket. T. Etlinger, Prmce, Challner, Paine, Hughes, and Lhmann, are all names included in last year's turnament team, when it was a team fr any centre t tackle, bu t all these are n lnger playing cricket at the" shank end." ---- 'And in spite f the.pauie 'created n Saturday by Sinclair's bwling, the present team is very little wrse than last year's, fr there is hardly a weak man in the whle eleven, A huge slice f whatever success may be attained by _the Prvince, must be ascribed t the pjsessin f tw r such bwlers at l\:iddletn and Rwe, a _pail' unmatchable in Suth Africa, bth trundlers with a splendid variety f changes, and btb adepts at using their, heads as well as their hands and feet. The result f yesterday's play will mean i cuple f hur's i~terestmg play t-day, fr thugh the Prvince have an apparently easy task t get 62 runs fr nine wickets, the recllectin f the Transvaal and Prvince first innings, will debar anyne frm taking the.tinal result fr granted.,.0 eg.

The cmparisn with "yung Barlw" may 0'may nt be crrect. 've n~ver had the _pleasur~u)f seeing the latter behind the stumps.. Hwever, Prince is, by cmpetent judges, cnsidered sesnd t. nly ne if nt! nne as wicket-kepar in the<,western Prvince. Last mnth a match was plapedbatween the. Capetwn and Western Previnea teams. COllllllentlllgn thisahe--capetwn crrespndent,.f t~e R~ainu.Gale,ulQ//' says that the Western Prvins Club were withut the services f HearnE'-i (t~mpraily disabled), whereas the city lst in Prince (absent) an iwvaltable wicket-keeper and j. gd bat. Cnsequently bth clubs were evenly \ represented." ''his is is sufficient t prve Prince's statns as a cricketer. Certainly there were t many extras n the Clclsn side but a gdmany were wides, and the byes were chiefly f attributable t the bad state f the grund and equally bad light prevailing., cannt clse withut reiterating what ur. bys say as t the receptin they experienced at! the han~s f ur Winburg friends, and was right: ryal, 'Yea! perchance a wee bit t much s. :, Yurs etc., ONE-WHO-WAS-NOT-''HERE.

Reid, despite ne astnishingly bad let-ff, played a mst invaluable innings f 83 ut f 75, carrying his bat right thrugh the iuningsthe secndtime he has dne s this seasn: His inuings, thugh slw, was a fine exhibitin f irn defence. The Old Bys with 26 fr nce in a way earned winning brackets. Blus 39, Bisset 64 and Spence 36, making light f the nt very frmidable bwling. The eagerly anticipated W.P. vs. C.T. match came ff n Saturday n what has been smewhat rare flate-a fine warm day. Bth elevens were nearly 'as representative as they culd be, thugh W. H. Richards and W. H.

The latter met with immediate success, great pace being f~nd in rare cmbinatin 'with a gd length and plenty f staying pwer.

Playing fr Kimberley vs. Pirates J. Pwell and Dig becming assciated with the scre at 9 fr 2 wickets, carried the ttal beynd the furth century. J. Pwell being respnsible fr 200 nt ut, and his partner fr 70 ut f the 404 fr 2 wickets registered at the call f time. This stand must be a further breaking f Suth African recrds bth with regard t the number f runs scred fr tw wickets and the ttal f the partnership. Kimberley grunds smehw seem t be very fruitful f duble centuries in cmparisn with the ther cricket fields f the Clny. C. Mills ran up 297-the recrd individual scre f S. A. cricket-n a Diamndplis grund, and D. Cpe with 28 was anther wh fund it pssible t make a lng scre in that centre. Curiusly enugh n batsman has ever been knwn t tp the duble century in the Western Prvince r, we believe thugh nt certain n this.pint, in any ther S. A. cricket cen tre. The chief event f interest t cricketers this week has been, f curse, the cntinuatin f the W.P. vs. C.T. match. The heavy rains f Friday had cnverted the W.P. field int a species f miniature lake, s that the clubs had t chse between abandning the match and stretching the strict rule f cricket t transfer the game n t the cmparatively dry C.T. grund. The latter curse having been adpted a smewhat late start was made n Saturday. With the additin f 8 runs the C.T. innings was cncluded, Smith, wh appeared t be in excellent frm, dispsing f the last three wickets and thus. earning the excellent and thrughly well- deserved analysis f 6 fr 49. On the W.P.C.C. starting their 2nd innings 56 runs t the bad, it certainly lked as if the game must be a very nesided affair. Richards and Hearne, wh pened the batting, were hwever in such fine frm that the balance was rubbed ff ere the first wicket-hearne's-fell fr an extremely gd innings f 36. Certainly the ld Kent man was never in better frm than at present, and his duble cntributin was simply invaluable t his side. Richards fllwed shrtly after fr a fine innings f 30, full f sund, watchful cricket, and abslutely faultless. The retirement f the first pair was, hwever, fcllwed by a cllapse s miserable, in the face f sme grand bwling by Middletn, that the whle advantage gained by the big stand fr the first wicket was utterly thrwn away. Man after man went in t face Middletn, nly t return discnslate, a victim t a piece f the finest bwling dne at Capetwn this seasn. Smith played pluckily fr 8 nt ut, but receiving next t n supprt, saw the whle. side ut fr the wretched ttal f 06. Middletn's analysis f 8 fr 28 deserves mre than passing ntice, and its merit was recgnised in a way gd bwling t seldm is. here-by a rcund f hearty cheers as he came ff the field. Rwe and Willughby, 'thugh bwling well, failed t capture a wicket, while Street, wh tk a cuple, did nt seem t be very deadly. Prince and Allen set all dubts as t the'ultimat issue at rest, thugh Prince, wh was ut just befre the necessary 50 were btained, was lucky in making his 6, his partner playing infinitely sunder and better cricket. ~c Hme-b~n team were expected t enjy the advantages f th~u' ppnents nn-pssesain f bwlers f the calibre f Mills and ~=n, but, as events shwed, several f the crack players were _. f n terms w~llr beneath their average.

65 accunt at the appraching hlidays and pressure n time. f _Smith was bwled ff his pads by Middletn's first ball, but ~» Castens, wh made his first appearance in a gd match this./ seasn, batted in very gd frm fr 4. At lunch time the ttal std at 23 fr 7 wickets, the scring having been exceedingly r slw thrughut. Resuming, runs came much faster. Bisset ding mst f the scring, while Reid played a, steady game but was at length taken at the wicket fr 3. Mre, wh played in place f Miltn (indispsed], came next, and after beginning a little nervusly settled dwn t play gd cricket. Runs nw came fast frm all the bwlers till at length 200 was signalled amid great applause. Shrtly after Bisset was l.b.w. t Rwe fr 90, the highest and perhaps best innings he has played in a first-class match but nt devid f a fair share f luck, thugh the dubtful decisin given in his favur n the first evening was cunterbalanced smewhat by a mistake n the umpire's part sending him back when s near the century. A few runs later Mre was als l.b.w. t Rwe fr a very valuable innings f 3, and the innings clsed fr 22 r a lead f 78. Rwe and Middletn were by far the best f the C.T. bwlers, but whereas the frmer captured 7 wickets the latter was nly rewarded by. Willughby was again unsuccessful, and neither he r Kuys appeared t be very difficult. Prince and Francis, wh cmmenced the C.T. secnd innings, speedily set t wrk, and the frmer in particular played cricket f a mst brilliant descriptin befre being caught by a mst attractive 76. Francis and Street put tgether 29 and 3 respectively in styles as diverse as the ples, but bth equally nseful, and then Andersn gave_ the bawlers and spectatrs a fair taste f his quality, cmpiling 54 in mst slashing style, while Allen played sund and careful cricket fr 22. EVentually, thugh 200 went up n the bard fr the lss f 3 wickets. 7 men were ut fr 220 at call f time, the match being thus left in t mst even psitin. t is a thusand pities that s fine and interesting a game shuld have t be left drawn, fr if played ut it shuld furnish a mst exciting game. Thrughut the cricket was f an infinitely higher rder than has been seen at Newlands n any ccasin this seasn. very fast scring all thrugh the afternn being cmbined with sund cricket and excellent bwling. Perhaps a special wrd f cmmendatin shuld be given t Smith, wh bwled thrughut the C. T. innings with wnderful pluck and patience, and yung Graham, thugh unsuccessful, als deserved a gd deal mre luck than he gt. t is perhaps a ntewrthy fact that thugh the umpires had t decide numerus kntty pints n which there was much diversity f pinin. n breath f suspicin was heard aga.inst their abslute impartiality. The final match between these cluhs will nw be lked frward t with unusual eagerness, fr n Saturday's frm they culd nt have been mre evenly matched. mmediately n the cnclusin f the game the cmmittee sat t select a W.P. XV t ppse Hawke's X. The final selectin is by nw knwn t everyne and will have been criticised by all cricketers-and a gd many nn-cricketers t. t is always a very unenviable task t select an X, and the present ccasin furnishes n exceptin t the rule. All things cnsidered hwever the cmmittee may be regarded as having dne their wrk well. Mst undubtedly the man whse selectin will be the subject f much un favurable cmment is Van der Byl, and it is hard t say whether the chice was a Wse ne r nt. The fact that Willughby has been s unsuc cessfnl in the last tw-innings n dubt-caused the- cmtrrittee t regard it as safer t include anther fast bwler, while the fact that neither Kuys nr Smuts have shwn particularly gd frm lately in this department was the reasn fr the selectin f the Prvince man, wh is n present frm abut as useful as the ther tw with the ball and immensely superir t Kuys as a bat. His fielding is, hwever, mst uncertain, and he will nt harm himself by a little hard practice in all departments f the game. Allen Reid, ne f the dubtful men, was nt included, and perhaps he has scarcely justified his inclusin by his frm in big matches. His time, hwever, is bund t cme in a year r tw. Castens' gd frm n Saturday must have made him cme very near selectin; thugh n dubt the fact that he has nly just recmmenced t play, and that he is nt behind the sticks as gd just at present as Prince, weighed smewhat with the cmmittee. Fr his batting he is unquestinably gd enugh, but this wuld be discunted cnsiderably by his fielding if he wcre nt t take the wickets. W. H. Richards and Cuthbertsn are tw men whse inclusin wuld have pleased very many, fr bth are safe fields and gd bats, but against Richards there is much the same bjectin as hlds against Castens-he has nly just taken t the game again and is nt in frm. One cannt help regretting that there was n rm fr Cuthbertsn, but it is difficult t see wh culd very well have been left ut, as Andersn's innings during the afternn practically secured him his place. Of curse there will be the usual utcry at the exclusin f Hendricks. t is hwever quite idle t urge his selectin, fr the authrities have decided repeatedly, and very wisely, dead against the intrductin f the principle f clured men playing in representative matches. f Hendricks were played we shuld sn be having the claims f half-a-dzen clured men advanced fr places in ur teams, and it is well that the Unin has defiuitely put its ft dwn n the practice. As it stands the XV. is a very pwerful ne in every respect and will make a very stern fight in the first match even vs. Hawke's pwerful cmbinatin. LEATHERHUNTER.
