Newport is Oliver this game took place at the High school grounds on saturday last this being a fourth of a series of games the game proved to be very interest ing from the Start owing to the Oli vers winning the previous games great credit is due to the Oliver Leam for making such a stand on saturday the Newport turned out at thei full strength the olivers batted Torst and were dismissed for the smal total of 20 runs the Newport follow ing with 5t thus ended the Lirosi part of the game we Are sorry to have to quote that the second part o tie game came to a Stop As one o the players was noticed refusing to do his duty in supporting the Bowler therefore he acted in a very unsportsmanlike manner which the Spectator were grieved to see As most of them were Good under standers of the Garni and liked clean sport this Sami player was cautioned in the previous game for his crooked work behind tin wickets and we think he was jealous of the Bowler for taking four wicket with four successive balls this be very hard to beat therefore the jealousy nevertheless the Newport being clean sports continued the Gam without the assistance of the said player As the Captain asked him to retire which he did and on so doing his partner followed him much to the satisfaction of the spectators and the game ended in favor of the Newpor team there is one More game to b played Between these two teams Anc we Hope no More of this no Senc will occur arrangements Are Bein made to entertain one of tie Coppe country teams Here in the near future when players from Bot i team will be selected to
