SECOND DAY. Another perfect day, Mith a, cooling zephyr. A great fight occurred in the first set of tho Men's Doubles—Ollivier- Wilding y. Borrows-Seav. The latter pair held their own right through the first set, but tho former pair eventually prevailed at 9-7. The loss pf this set made a marked difference in the play of Borrows and Sca-y, who seemed to go to pieces and made a number of errors. The winners held the upper hand all through the remaining sete. In tho Singles Pearse qualified for the third round bv defeating M'Dougall in straight sets. M'Dougall spurted in the second set and held his own to 4 all, but thereafter he failed to annex the points which give tho games. Pearse Mas too strong all round.—Jennings made a onehorse race of if against Dickie. The Taranaki man excel* "in doubles play.—lt. S. Brown started very shakily (loss, whom he defeated in the recent Canterbury- match. Goss got, the, first 11 games in success-won by fine play in all departments. —Wallace (champion) met Harraway in the third round. The. veteran went- oil' 40-love in tho first game, but dropped it.
