ROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
BOWING. In the account last week of the St. Ignatius j B.C. Regatta, in describing the race for the Riverviow Challenge Eights, it was made to appear that in the foul whioh occurred at j Longuevillo between the Sydney and North I Shore crews both coxswains were to blame. I This, it appears, was not the case, and Mr. Quist, who was steering the North Shore boat, has called to put us right in the matter. It appears that when approaching Longueville Sydney had a slight lead, which tho Dark Blues were rapidly decreasing, The North Shore coxswain twice hailed Neville-Wells, who was steering the Light Blue.;, for room. The Sydney boat, although clearly in fault, made no attempt to give way, and the North Shore boat was within an ace of being jammed on tlie Point. So close were they that No, 7 smashed the blade of his oar. which the others managed to avoid by pulling theirs in, two or three of the crew receiving nasty bruises at the time, and it was only by very nice steering that the Dark...

Pupils of Cleveland-street Superior Public Girls' School were strongly in evidence at the Opera House on Friday night, when the pretty little operettaof ' Lily bell ' was produced by thom before a house packed in every part. The children acquitted themselves admi rably — the solos, choruses, and dances being rendered in such a manner as to reflect credit upon all concerned. Miss Corbett, as Queen Titania, looked every inch the character, carrying herself with stately mien throughout, and, although somewhat nervous at first, demon strated before the proppramme concluded that sho possessed an unusually good voice for a girl of her years. Misses Binns (Lily bell) and Malumby (Thistledown) had a deal to do aud did it well, their vocal contributions being received with much applause.
