SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP, Grange v. Albion.

This match, which was played on the North Ground, resulted in an easy win for Grange by an innings and 127 rims. Grange, who had three wickets down for 165, continued their innings, the not-outs (Johnston and A. Downes) facing the bowling of W. Gibson and J. Spence. Johnston added 7 before being bojvlel, while Downes quickly increased his score by 34, including a hit for 5 (all run out), before being caught by Black. The only other player who reached double figures was Best, with 12, the innings closing for 230. The Albion in their second innings fared little better than in their first. Williams and Spence both hit freely for 13 each. None of the other batsmen, however, could do much against the bowling of Downes, who secured six wickets for 23 runs. Scores Grange.—First Innings.

Smith, who achieved such a good bawling average for Carisbrook on the previous Saturday, was collared straightaway on this tcoasion, all the batsmen scaring off him freely. The many changes that were deemed necessary did not bring about any improvement, the result being that all the Dunedin men who handled the bat in the second innings reached double figures. Beck batted with caution throughout, hitting only at the balls, but Clarke made his runs very fast, his score including a hit over long-on’s head. Fish also batted with confidence, while Kinvig hit out in great style. Scores:— _, ~ , Carisbrook B. First Innings ... ... 59 „ , Duneoik, First Innings ... ... ... ... ng ~ , , . Second Inniaga.

Port going in first, made 45, M'Callum (12) being top unrtr. Hendley, after an exciting struggle, only succeeded in making 43. Port resuming had two wickets down for 4lj when slumps were drawn, Collier batting well for 23 and Hunter for 12 (not out), G. Neil (five for 20), D. Jack (two for 9), and VV. Neil (two foe 11) bowled well for Port, whilst Hamman, Thompson, and Irvine did the damage for Hendley.

During the progress of the Midland-Rival cricket match at the Basin Reserve, Wellington, recently, a ball was hit by Williams among the spectators seated in front of the pavilion, and struck one of them on the head with great force, of course rendering him insensible. It was at first feared that the man had been killed, but after some little time, under the care of Dr James, who was on the ground, he recovered his faculties and was taken home in a dazed state. To add to the excitement caused by the incident, while the crowd gathered rcund the stunned man two other balls were sent among them by Webb, who was batting in another match, and caused a hasty clearance of the neighborhood of the seats.
