FOOTBALL. Tho Back Domain was lively on Saturday afternoon, throe terrible football struggles going on in close proximity to each othor. The Wallaroos crossed swords with the Parramatta warriors, and a great struggle ensued, tho ball being first in one territory and next iu the other. So evenly contested was tho game that tho backs had very little work, the lion s share falling to the sturdy forwards. The King's School seconds had a gay time of it with tho Strathfields, whom thoy defeated by about as many points as they liked. King's School 2nd v. Stratiifibld — As soon as these teams settled down to work it was quite evident that the Strathfields wero in for a severe drubbing.

In Explanation. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 25 May 1889

In Explanation. TO THE EDITOR. OP THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. Sir, — In fairness Co Mr. W. H. Windsor, I felt it but right that I should soncl a word of |apology with reference to tho question that I put to the Mayor, at the meeting held in the School of Arts, Granville, on Monday evening last, on the Sewerage Farm question, concerning his bona fides as a ^ratepayer of Granville. I was quite sure that Mr. Windsor was a ratepayer before 1 asked the question, but a certain Alderman of the Granville Council seemed much surprised to hear the Mayor call on him to move a resolution, and said to me that he was not a ratepayer at all. I assured the alderman he was, but he still was unbelieving, hence the need of the question, which at once settled the matter, and convinced the alderman, I did not ask were his rates paid, but did ho pay rates to Granville. I hope that Mr. Windsor will now see that I am not the foe that he took me to bo but a real friend. Yours etc. JAMES WILLIAMSON Mountford Avenu...
