RAILWAYS V. ASYLUM.

Both clubs were strongly represented, Baker, the skipper of the Railways, won the toss from Lake, who led the Asylum boys, and sent -the lat ter into bat, the weather being exceed. i ingly warm.

They opened with Dr. Philpott and Staines, and great was the delight in the Railway camp when both of their wickets were captured for 12 all told.

M ?.INING n?TELLIGE - .-. I',Last week -was full of incident for shareholders of the New Langi Logan Company. The opening of the market on Monday -morning saw prices cari-ed to above 36%, as the outcome of the en couraging prospects from- e first test ing of the wash ij the'.workings from No. 1 rise. While subsequent testings from the same point have led the mine manager to repeat tlieestimate that Ine values disclosed we re qual to 2 oza or 3 .ozs per fathom, res did not hold to top figures.
