CRICKET NOTES Lohman Himself Again. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
[?] (By *? Not Out.') Lohmann Himself Again. Those who saw tho young Surrey pro fessional trundling on Saturday last had ample proof of tho fact that he is a bowler of the fh-at rank. Since lie landed in Aus tralia Lohmann has accomplished very little in the bowling line, bo much ho that many people formulated ideas ,-.nd opinioun that Sir. Lohmann would not relish were they made public. Those of us who under rated him, or rather, judged him prema turely, must now eat our own wordH, for those of hia fellows who have tented his abilit:es in the old country positively nflirm that last Saturday wis hia first exhibition of his old form. During a con versation with this promising young Jwwlcr I gleaned his opinions re break bowling, and that . is, a leg break is the more difficult to nlav to the maioritv of batsmen, but he does not rely so much upon tho break as upon the pace or pitch. ' A ball that breaks away,' says Loh mann, ' is far more difficult to play than a ball that comes in fr...
Pootball or Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
Pootball or Crlcfcot. ' There ho goes playing tho bowling with his pads again.' Now, if I have heard that exclamation once, I have heard it ono thousand times, nay moro. I have heard tho same sentimentH expressed in different language, stronger, no doubt, but les3 respectable, often tinged with bitter sarcasms, more often savouring with righteous anger and wrath. And why ? Because 1 the public abhor meanness, and although in tho law of cricket, formulated and laid down when men ' played ' tho truo game, and with tho bat alone, it is not punish able; still there are certain laws, as exist in otlic/ institutions, which should exist amongst tho players, who should bo so constituted that tho very necessity of putting them in print should make them blush for shame. Such a law must apply to this detestable habit-, or maybe ' science,' for by their astuteness itseems to mo that their proficiency is not the re sult of an occasional indulgence, hut an art assiduously practiced, and now per f...
The Proposed Now Rules. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
* The Proposed Now Kales. At tho last mooting of tlio Victorian Cricketers' Association, tho secretary re ported that tho New South Wales Cricket Association had declined to send delegates to consider certain amendments suggested in connection with the laws of the game. Tho delegates appointed by the Victorian and South Australian institutions had met, however, and decided that it was advisable to increase tho number of balls per over in first-class matcheB from four to six. In the matter of tho proposal to alter tho rule relating to leg before wicket they could not see their way to make any recommen dation Dr. Ray supported the amendment, ' .which ho thought would meet with almost universal approval. It was dosirablo to stop what waa known aa the ' Shrewsbury game,' but he had always recognised that ? tho question of leg beforo wicket was a difficult matter to handle. Mr. Greig said that the South Austra lians wore strongly in favour of the altera tion in the over from four balls t...

Although Garrett, Midwinter, nnd Lyons were put on bowling they failed to improve upon tho redoubtable pair (Turner and Ferris). The former took Jive of tlie wickots, while Ferris is account able for the other two at a nvther dearer expense than Turner's.

The Disqualification of Sutton. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 March 1887
The Disqualification of Sutton. In disqualifying Sutton tho Victorian _J!lub appear to havo shown an animus, and at once seized the opportunity to sit on tho champion of cash betting. Lord Deer hurst owed Sutton money, the latter de manded payment ; Deerhurst told him to be damned. They subsequently met in the back parlour of nn hotel, blows wero interchanged, in which Deerhurst got the worst of it. This most noble lord, to be revenged, reported Sutton to the club. This association eagerly seized tho oppor tunity to rid themselves, of the objection able Sutton. Tho police court will throw some light on the matter, but as Sutton was guilty of no infringement of its rules, tlie Vic torian Club has set up a standard of qualification for membership that very few of its raeuibers could negotiate wero thoy put to the test.

THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 March 1887
THE WEEK. The excitement caused by the im Eortant meeting at Flemington last week, as by this time passed away, but the way our horses have performed should be a source of gratification and pleasure both to their owners and the sporting iratermty tins side or the border, xne Hoa. James White, as usual, has tho honour of receiving the largest cheque, which amounts to the Handsome sum of 01425 Is., and Mr. Stead, of New Zealand, comes next with £1388 9s. j then follows Mr. M'Donald, of South Aus tralia, with £1327 10s. ; the Hon. W. A. Long, £954: and MajorGeorge with £567. From the foregoing it will be gathered that the five most important sums have left the land that provided the sport, certainly not very encouraging for the Victorians. With such facilities as our neighbours possess, the result is somewhat surprising, as they have by far tho groatest number of horses to repre sent them. To fathom the causes would indeed be a hard task. But perhaps some consolation remains for them i...
