The feature •?< Saturday'* play -was the Ashing cricket of the Colts, who,.although without the services of their •kipper, Crawford, gained what may be described aa a bruliant victory over Dunedin. An exciting finish was witnessed at Culling Park, where the new seniors recorded 'their second win by beating Carisbrook B by 3 runs. Another interesting game was that between Opoho and Carisbrook A. the hill team pulling themselves together in the Utter part of their innings and winning by a wicket and a few ran*. The " test match, Albion v. Grange, caused, as usual, a good deal of local interest. Grango won rather easily. Following are the results : Carisbrook A v. Opoho. This match was played at Carisbrook, the wicket being a little dead at the start, but improving as the day wore on. Tho home team batted first, and Siedeberg and Adams went along steadily until 29 was on the 'board, when. Siedeberg hit out at Casey and the ball rose over the wicketkeeper's head to Eckhoff at tin* slip. The catch was held. Bruges got 11 before being caught off the fast bowler, and two were down for 51. After this there was something like a procession, none of the last eight batsmen reaching double figures, and the innings dosed for 103, Adams, who was missed early by Kenny, being easily ton scorer with 30. Casey and Eckhoff fowled unchanged, the former being particularly effective with hi» fust "oft theory." On Opoho going in to bat they fared Tather badly for a while, Siedebcrg and Hav, who were both bowling well, disposing of the first five batsmen before the half century appeared on the board. Casey was shaping well when he fell to a very" fine catch by Austin in the slips, and Kenny, after batting in hia usual steady style for 11, got ono from Siedebergthat was altogether too good. Eckhoff rattled up 16, but when he went the score was onlv 72 for six, and Kitgonr followed 2 runs "later. Then it was that Timlin and Brown saved the situation, and betwwm them carried the score past the Carobrook's total. Timlin played a nice innings for 44, and Brown nit hard and well for 24, which included two sixes. At .-all of time the Opoho score was 126 for nine wickets. Messrs Croxford and CavTnasrh were the umpires. Scores : Cab is aaooK A.—First Innings. Siedeberg e Eckhoff hj Casey 16 Adams b Eckhoff 30 Bruges c Brown b Casey 11 Hay" b Eckhoff 1 J.

St. Kilda v. C.uusbbook B. The match between St. Kilda and Carisbrook B on Culling Park, where a good wjeket had been prepared, was productive of a fairly exciting finish, as when the last wieket fell the home team were only 3 runs to the good. Carisbrook batted only pine men, Tuckwell being absent, but ( that /does not necessarily detract from the / general merit of the 'win. ' St. Kilda made 140 in their first venture, almost half the runs being contributed by T. Livingstone, who, although lucky, nevertheless played confidently throughout, and at times made his runs freely by good .-coring strokes. He and Walter Kerr, a j promising colt, carried the score from 6 to 51. after which the wickets fell rapidly enough to make the supporters of the Miburbanites somewhat uncomfortable as to their chances of making a decent score. Five batsmen had been dismissed rather cheaply when M'Farlana partnered Edwards, and these two, after saving the situation were finally separated when the board showed eight for 131. The innings closed after an additional 9 had been added. Ramsden, -who had bowled unchanged from the tennis court end, secured seven for 64. The visitors had plenty of time to get the required total, and, indeed, it looked as though they were going to give the St. Kilda men some leather-hunting, for Westbrook and Harold Watson established a serviceable partnership, the former playing good sound cricket for 40, while the latter, in registering 42 by batting steadily, brought off a number of characteristically nice strokes, which kept the crowd who lined the rails fairly thickly keenly interested. When the partnership was dissolved the score was 86, and the result appeared to be a foregone conclusion. Most of the phophets were wrong, for as things turned out six wickets went down for 150, and the remaining three were productive of only seven runs, so that the home team secured their second win this season by a narrow margin. All things considered, they deserved a win, but, as a study of , the details will disclose, it was mainly due to the efforts of T. Livingstone that they found themselves victors at the finish". Five wickets at a cost of 58 runs, the last two being got when badly needed, and a contribution of 63 with the bat is a performance of which a more seasoned player might well be proud.

Grange secured a win from Albion bv 62 runs. Th* match was played on" the winners-* wicket, which waa in good condition. Grange batted first, and did not start too auspicMuslr. Indeed, three _ wickets, had fallen for 30 runs when Chadwick.and Holdaway became associated in a partnership .whien carried the tally to 11. \V. Johnston got both of them. . Towards: the end of the innings C. Beeby —••* Uooerts made another good 6tand, and
it was only the good batting of these four that gave Grange their respectable total of 191.

This match was on the "Cale." Dimt>din took first strike, and began badly, but Johnston and Howard played the bowling of Alloo and Shepherd confidently, and set up a partnership that heartened the I>unedin supporters. Howard made fair use of his reach, and Johnston's dnv. iDg was clean and weighty. Bell relieved Shepherd when the score stood at 81 for three wickets, and Howard at once succumbed to the worst ball of the match, a full tosser on the leg side, which he lifted square into Shepherd's hands. It was a bad ball, but part of an obvious trap Mackersy played Alloo on before scoring. Johnston Mood awhile longer ; and then lost his wicket through a miscalculation Ho cut one from Shepherd fire and low. and evidently thought it had passed first slip, and aa Brydon had started to run Johnston made a dash for it, but Bell reached out smartly, and just got the ball syds from the wicket, and Johnston was run out. Frank Graham was snared in exactly the same way as Howard, but off a better ball. Brvdon, who made his runs well, was caught at deep point, almost on the ground, and it was a question for tho umpire as to whether Malcolm really had his hands urder the ball Ho promptly ruled " Out," and it was the proper decision. M'Kay put up a strong defence coupled with sound driving, and he had made either 36 or 35—the scorers did not agree —when Alloo took him smartly at cover and fell in jumping for the catch. Perry's a gg ress ; V e hitting earned either 29 or 30 runs that were verv useful, and he looked like going on (for the bowling had lost its sting), when Hanna was thrown out by Alloo, and the inning 3 closed about 4.50 for 188. The Colts' fielding was fair, very good. Shepherd was brilliant. It is open to doubt whether the placing of the field was always the best. The bowling of Shepherd and Alloo was good for an hour, then so-ao. Crawford stood out for the day, it being deemed advisable to give his knee a rest. L. Chadwick and Shepherd opened the Colts' innings, to the bowling oi"Mackersy and Graham. Chadwick seemed uncomfortable. Graham might have appealed for lbw in the first over. Very quickly, however, the left-hander found form, and by true hitting, specially effective on the off side, he rattled up 48 without a mistake. Johnston eventually gob him*with a ball that came in a trifle from the off, and about which Chadwick seemingly altered his mind whilst making the stroke. Shepherd's batting was the feature of the I match. When 17 he put a ball perilously low over the bowler's head. When 26 he was dropped by Brydon on tho boundary; and when 78 Johnston at long-on let the ball through his hands. It was therefore a luckv innings, but otherwise full <>f merit; "He showed great knowledge, and if it be true that he was not feeling very .well one niav call it a great performance. i Thanks largely to Shepherd's aggressivej ness 80 runs were got in 40 minutes. 100 I in 50 minutes, 130 in 61 minutes, and 150 in an hour and a-quarter. The score stood at 181 when Shepherd, apparently anxious about his century, slowed down, and one of his careful strokes resulted in taking tho ball with the edge of tho bat and giving an easy catch to second slip. Arthur Alloo made his runs by sound cricket and varied strokes that displayed much resource. A good off drive by Malcolm evened tho score, a leg bye made it a win for the Colts, then Alloo had a. royal smack to tho on for the only sixer j of* the match, and stumps were drawn, the result being another win for tho Colts —a win of special significance, seeing that they did it themselves without the aid of the coach.

Williams, and Crawford) have chosen the following 12 plavers to represent Otago on the Northern tour, when matches will be played ' against Canterbury and Wellington;— C. Chadwick. Crawford, Eckhotf, Tuckwell. Ramsden. Bruges, Shepherd, Bell. Watson, Sicdeberg. A. W. Alloo, Gallr.nd. Tho team is a good all-round combination. C. Chadwick is, of course, unquestioned as wicket-keeper. The howlers are Crawford, Eckhoff. Siodeberg, and Ramsden, with Alloo. Shepherd. Watson, and Tuckwell a> changes. It is unfortunate that we have no loft-hand bowlers of sufficient merit to be included. Hay, 1 understand, was not available. In choosing the last two or three men the selectors were, no doubt, influenced by the performances of the candidates for these positions in the Otago v. Colts match last Thursday; vet even this would scarcely ac-
count for Ramsden beating Casey for a place, though it may for Bruges getting in. Those are the only two, in my opinion, whoso inclusion is at all open to criticism. Ramsden, as a seasoned player, may, and probably will, do something to justify the confidence of the selectors, but if the season's performances are analysed, Casey is certainly entitled to a placo before the Carisbrook man as an all-roundor. In batting and bowling—also in fielding— Casey has the advantage. Ramsden began well with 56 against Grange on the opening day of the season, but has only once sinco reached doublo figures—in Thursday's match, when he got 13. ' In bowling he has captured 20 wickets at a cost of just over 16 runs each, his best performance being seven for 46 against Dunedin, when he bowled really well. Casey has done nothing very remarkable with the bat, yet his figures are better than Itamsden's by about 5 runs per innings; while in bowling the Opoho representative is well ahead with 27 wickets at an average cost of 10 runs. These two aro different types of bowlers, of course, but here again, to my mind, the advantage is with Casey, whose fast rising off stuff would be more of a change, to the other bowlers on the side than would Ramsden's swerves. As to Brugos, his century against Dunedin, followed by a fair score on Thursday, probably gave him his place, though there are more consistent scorers who must have been considered, amongst them being one or two smart fieldsmen.
Crawford is " the hope of the side," and to him we look to do the lion's share of tho work, especially in .the bowling department. The four colts will also be expected to reproduce club form, and to show our northern friends that we can turn out dashing young cricketers when the proper tuition is available. On the whole, the selectors may be. said to have carried out their anything but enviable task very creditably, and the chosen team will, I am suro, give a good account of themselves.
