A ROWDY AUDIENCE.
Sydney, July 19. There have been several rowdy scenes in the Stadium lately. A section objected to a decision on Saturday night, when 17,000 were present. The dissatisfied section, not content with howling and shouting and bustling, commenced throwing bottles and other missiles, containing lighted paper, from various parts of the building, shouting, "Burn the place down." The lights were turned off and hoses brought into play on the audience, which made a hurried exit. The rowdy element resumed its demonstra tion outside, smashing windows and throwing stones on the roof Eventually the police dispersed the crowd.
