BRETT AND HIS DETRACTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 14 April 1887

BZOETT AND HIS DETRACTORS. The other day I dropped across the well known and our best amateur, rower, and immediately opened conversation bv re marking: ? 'They tell me that if you row-Greon, the boxer, you will 'bo disqualihfcd iis.an, amateur.' ; .VI cannot exactly see that. I can pick on a number of club men who aro r.nougm, legitimate amateurs, and yet they are professional runners, and one of tlieui is likely to bo included in an intercolonial -eight. Again, I know amateur oarsmen ?who box with professional . pugilists. Because I -am' going - to row this man, who is a perfectly recognised member of an Adelaide-club, there is a lot ofajickling,-, as if halt' the amateure 'rowers'nere wero' ^ old women. If ;I' could 'not row never a word would be said, but because I can hi ab them all they Jure always on tho alert to get the slightest excuse to get rid of me.

BETWEEN BRINKS. A oontemporai-y write3, ' -David Bucha nan is back again.' Well, that's ns'it may be — a gain or a loss, just as you take it.

The ballei. girls were just leaving by their private exit when a well-dressed young fellow pushed among them, and addressing one of the tallest and slimmest, said, ' Excuse me, Miss Nathalie, but may I havo the pleasure of seeing you home ?' The younggirl so spoken to stopped a moment and looked the man full in tho face. His gaze did not blench, and lie added, ' You know me, I think, and you heard from me this morning.'

WITH SOCK AND BUSKIN. It is a fact that will admit of no question (snys the Now York Dramatic News) that the cities of Melbourne, in Victoria, and Sydney, in the colony of New South Wales, in proportion to their respective popula tions, contain more theatres and plaees of amusement than any other towns or cities in the world, and the salaries paid to artists generally are larger and more assured than in England or America. This latter state ujujju jo jji L-iiLJie auLuia wiLn vnc opinions and circumstances of those who, from the countries mentioned, have found their way to Australia.

MANSFIELD V. PYKMONT IVANHOE. [TO THE EDITOE OK THE SUN DAT TIMES.] Sir,— I have to apologise for trespassing on your space, but having expressed an opinion which was opnosed to that of several cricketing authorities (Mr. 'NValliugs excepted), I take the liberty of quoting an extract from Lillywhite's Guide for 1887, page 10 1 — *' Rugby and Marlborough mutch. By an oversight Bcugougli was allowed to go ou twice at each end, and iu his first illegitimate over he got tho rival eaptaiu's wicket. The mistake was noticed iu tho pavilliou, and a protest was lodged. The decision was (we suppose it forms a preceaoni as wo nave nover noara or a similar case), 4 that tho batsman was out,' but that the bowler, after fluishing his over, was not to delivor another ball during the innings.' The decision is opposed to that of that eminent authority, Mr. Wallinurs, but I am bure that tho English precedent wilfbe accepted as correct, which gives tlie match to the Mansfield C.C.
