DOW LAIS FOOTBALLERS WALK I OFF THE FIELD. On Saturday a football tnatch between Dowlai- and Ferndab: was to lt3 played at Ferndalo, but. the Dowlai- men after about 15 minntea play walked off the field, no rera-)u lacing given for their strange con- duct. A tight game was anticipated, while there was a good attendance of spectators. The Dowlais men at first pressed bard, but the home men, waking up, got to thy Dowlais lines, from where they soon got a minor, a near thing for ;l 11y. Richards, on the ir- start, again taking the ball, went clean through the visitors defence, and giving a long kick put all his man on side, and would certainly have scored, when Cliiney, rushing up, picked the boll up and scored be- hind the posts. J ne Dowlais men asked the referee what it was, and be answered, "A try." Then they walked off the field, and before the crowd could realise what. they meant they had gone. Commenting on the foregoing Old Stager writes in the South. n'aT". Ijaif;/ Xt vs as follows The Dowlais men acted like a liock of silly sheep—it was a case of follow; my leader, we must suppose. That they had a grievance is possible, for the referee may have been incoametem. They had their legitimate remedy in appealing to the Union. T cannot conceive a lot of men with sportsmanlike spirit following such a course."
