In each of Saturday's engagements there was an interesting finish. On tne North Ground the Albion andi Cansbrook A match resulted in a tie (though there is a dispute regarding one hit, recorded as a boundary, but disputed ss such hy Albion); while Grange on the adjoining wicket put up a big fight against the Colts, and were only beaten by 38 runs in a match in which each side scored over 200. Dunedin only passed St. Hilda’s total after their eighth wicket had fallen; and Opoho and Cansbrook playing on until almost 7 o clock, battled hard, the former to capture the last / Cansbrook wicket, and the latter to keep that wicket up or to score the few runs required to win. This game was drawn. Following are the results :■— Colts v. Change. These two teams met on the North Ground and provided some interesting cricket. The chances of the Orange scoring a win were increased by the fact that Crawford, who had injured his knee at practice during the week, was scarcely fit to play. His innate keenness, however, took him into the field, and, although his lamed condition handicapped both his batting and bowling, he contributed in no small degree to his boys victory. The Colts batted first, and opened with Shepherd and Chadwick, the former getting to work quickly, while the Dunedin colt was tor a long while verv slow. When Shepherd had scored 26 ont of 31 he put his leg in front to Graham and retired. Alloo and Malcolm did not add materially to the total, but Binney played a good innings. Both he and Chadwick were caught of! the slow bowler Becby. who eventually captured all the remaining wickets. Crawford went in late and" hit hard, knocking up 25 very quickly before being bowled by an extremely long hop which he went out to meet. The stand of the innings was made by the last two men. M'Mullcn and Satterthwaite, who added no less than 81 runs, the innings closing for 240. Beeby's bowling figures were excellent. The first five Grange wickets fell for 67, despite the fact that Crawford was unable to bowl with his accustomed vim. Bell and Holdaway then added SO. the former batting in particularly good form. Another and a better partnership was that by J. and A. Graham, who put on 81 "for the Bth wicket; both batting well. The last two wickets fell quickly, and the Colts won by 38 runs.

Aliuon v. Carisbrook A. Played on the North Ground, this game resulted after a most exciting finish in a tie—according to the score books, that is to say, for there is still a disputed boundary hit to be settled. The misunderstanding arose in the Carisbrook innings when Hay claimed a “ boundary” for a ■stroke which was intercepted by a spectator. This the umpire allowed, but the Albion captain pointed out that the ball bad paasea tho boundary area and entered that in which all hits had to be run out. Albion, in scoring 165, were largely indebted to Dnthie, who played a fine innings of 75, which included 15 4’?, E. Williams and AV. Johnston (27 each) played good cricket. In Can’s brook's innings the -land between Bannerman and Reid for the seventh wicket was the most notable feature. These two took the score from 71 to 123 and 2brougbl victory within the bounds of possibility. Previous to this Nicholson had batter nicely for 26. When "Martin went in the scorers announced “6 runs wanted.” Of three, Adams bad scorn! 4 and the newcomer 1 when Stiglish got one past tho veteran wicket-keeper. It is understood that tbe question of tho boundaries on the North Ground will be brought before to-night’s meeting of the 0.0.A., although it is unlikely that the Albion will enter a formal appeal. It may be mentioned that Albion halted one short, M'Neill, for some reason, declining to play. Scores: Albion.—First Innings. Baker o Nicholson b AUoo 5 Dnthie b Hay 75 S’ewart Ibw b Alloo 10 F.

This match, played on tho Caledonian Ground, at one stage promised to furnish an exciting finish. St. Hilda, who batted first, made 82, and the home team had eight wicket* down for 77; then Cramond, supported bv Given, saved tho situation for them- and the innings closed with tho total 129. The visitors wickets fell as under One for 4, two for 6, three for 21 four for 53, five for 58, six for 70, seven for 70. eight for 73, cine for 75, and ten for 82. M’Caxten, a very useful and likely bat, was top-scorer with 36, which included three fours. He was msised twice. M’Caxten has batto dvery consistently since entering senior mcket Ha alw> took two wickets on Saturday for 18. Graham, Dunedin’s all-round boy, bowled remarkably well, his average read>lo overs, 5 maidens, IB runs, tiro wickets. At one stage ho sent down four maiden* in succession for two wicketsHe went very close to doing the “ hat trick- 4s* also a consistent bat. He.
was second highest scorer on Saturday with 16. Graham is a very promising young player. The home team also started badly. Their wickets fell as follows t One for 5. two for 19, three for 20, four for 48. five for SO, six for 69, seven for 76, eight for 77, nine for 127, and ton for 129. Crsgnond, their crack batsman, showed his old form, and gave a free display for 34, which included throe fours. Cramond is a pretty bat, and is always worth watching. T. Livingstone was in good form with the ball, his average reading: —21 overs, 6 maidens, 42 runs, 7 wickets. He is a bowler with a future. The batting-on the whole was disappointing. and on the slow side. Scores: St. Hilda. —Fibst Innings.

Casey was the chief scorer, and compiled 59 by steady play,.most of his strokes being clean and hard. Davidson batted well for 22. and Eckhoff scored 22 not out. Nelson took five wickets for 48 runs. Carisbrook would have had to force the game more than they did to get tho runs necessary to win before the light failed.

It was an exciting finish, and when the game dosed Carisbrook had lost nine wickets for 148, making the game a draw. Tuckwell contributed 50 and Watson 23. Scores: Opoho.—First Innings.
