An Extraordinary Case. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 14 June 1884

S-An j:Extraordinary.

Blind Concert. THOSE who desire to assist one of the noblest institutions of our land, should be present at • the: concert to be given by the pupils of the Victorian Asylum and School for the Blind on Tuesday evening at the Royal .Hall. We need.hot theorise on the duty and privilege'of those who can see the sun and the face of nature, to aid and help the unfortunates whom Providence has shut up in!darkness for.their "natural lives."

COLLINS' CONCERT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. SiR,-Permit me, through your columns, to express my warmest gratitude to the gentle men who initiated, and so successfully carried out the proposal of recognising my humble efforts in the cause of charity by a complimen. tary concert.

Again sincerely thanking my many kind friends and patrons. I am, etc., E. COLLINS, Hawthorn, lr/6184.

Football. -4----- FOOTSCRAY v. WILLIAMSTOWN JUNIORS, 2nds This match was played last Saturday on the ground of the latter and resulted in a draw in favor of the Footscray who kicked 9 behinds to 6, which was very satisfactory considering it being the first match they have played this season together, and it is to be hoped that the full team will turn up every Saturday either on or off their ground, without having to borrow Ist twenty men. The following deserve great credit for their. play: Wright, Cant, Finlay, Pearce, :Boyd, and Carter, and for the Juniors, Matthews, Pierce, Homewood, and Anderson, (sub), who played the game of the forty. AIBIERTS V. ROSE OF DENMtARK.

I -Our University Professors. -4-- DURING the past few years, the public has often been surprised,;ind at times eceedingly shocked, by the reports of conductdof. the'.University Professors.

Rowing. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 14 June 1884

Rowing. The AquaticCarnival held on Saturday, at Albert Park, in honor of the great sculler, Edward Hanlan, was, as regards attendance, a great success, but the management was-some thing awful. The first race was advertised at half-past one, but it was not until three o'clock that a start was made, and had it not been for IHanlan, who kept paddling up and down before the people, the thing would have been a perfect failure. The Footscray Rowing Club sent sixteen men to compete in the scratch eights, and the strokes were H. Saunders and II. West. The former in the opinion of the opinion of the spectators won his heat, but the judge decided against him. A protest to the decision has been sent in to the committee. It was almost impossible to distinguish the winning post from any other part of the lake. The crew stroked by H. West won their heat and are still left in the competition, which will be finished this afternoon at the same place.
