INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. DAVIS CUP. The International contest has started, And Australasia has been successful in winning its first match—that against Austria. Brookes and Wilding seemingly are our representatives, which proves that they have been reckoned better singles players than Dunlop and Parker, and also better as a double than any other' combination worked out from our {our men.
