ST. PATRICK'S DAT. At Botany. On Thursday, the sun was very strong, but during the day something like 15,000 people attended the various sports at Sir Joseph Banks, Botany. . At 9 a.m. a procession of about 700 pro ceeded from St. Benedict's Church to the Redfern terminus. The different officers and members of the various societies were 1 clad in the customary reealia. . In the high jump, J. Logan easily beat A. Bressell, and in an exhibition -jump cleared 5ft. Gin. , ? / . In the collar and elbow wrestling, Snow threw Keating, and in turn John Tyrell, of the West Coast, New Zealand, threw Show.'. After a deal , of wrestling Tyrell and M. Crowley divided. Crowley is much the lighter man, but as Tyrell's* shoulder was hurt it was thought only fair to divide. There is some talk of both meeting again in Foley's, for a prize and waser. ° The final for the St.' Patrick's Day Handicap Was 'fought out between G. Smith, of Moss Vale, on 14yds. ; E.

The proceedings which have led up to this severe decision are- too fresh iu the minds of most to need recapitulation, but as many are not pro perly informed or fully acquainted with true facts of the whole case, I venture to go. through them briefly, and only once agfain. The N.S.W.C.U. countenanced tho mixoa uniting or the Ifinglish professionals, Wood and James and picked amateurs of Australia. Con Dwyer's presence was, of course, invaluable, and he was therefore chosen as one of tho amateur representa tives. The V.C.U. then decided by only a solitary vote not to allow liim to ride under their authority or auspices. Dwyer was not to bo defeated by such narrow-minded policy, and determined to como on to Sydney, trusting, no doubt, that his fellow riders would cool tho enmity and annul their decision. While in N.S.W. the V.C.U. met again and the pr...
