MR. HUMPHREY'S CHALLENGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 February 1884

MR. HUMPHREY'S' CHALLENGE. TO TIlE EDITOR OF TIIE INDEPENDENT. -DEAR SIR,-It was only this evening that my attention was called to Mr. Humphrey's bold challenge, although several parties had asked: me through Ithe :week,. in a sort of chaffing war--' When is this great match coming ofl? I did not understand what they were driving at. Now I can see the joke, and a joke I would have been willing to laugh at and let pass. Who ever heard of a Scotch man playing cricket?: But this ever-juvenile gentleman includes his own countrymai, Councillor Johnson, who must know some. thing of the game, in the challenge. This is getting serious. Something must be done, else where will it end? Who will be at it next? I hope Councillor Johnson will take the matter m hand, and give him such a caution as he will not forget in a hurry.

FoOrscRAY v. COBURi. . The second eleven of the Footscray met the first eleven of the Coburg on Saturday, on the ground of the former. The locals, who were captained by B. Frenchi, lost the toss, and consequently had to take the field. Copple stone and Kelly started the bowling, but with the score at 17, Pattinson relieved the latter, and a change came over the game.: Both bowler's were well on: the spot, and wickets fell rapidly. Seven' were down for 45, and the Footscray werejubilant. . Their:rejoicings, however, did not" last long, -as: the next- two' batsmen-bearing 'the uncommon name' of Smith-placed a dilfercnt aspect on the game.. Numerous chaiiges'were'madde in the bowling,' but it was not till 'o7 had been reached that a separation was effected. The innings,finally, closed for t2t. A. Smith made 29, and J. Sniith 40. C.'
