RETURN OF WARNER'S TEAM, A large crowd assembled at Victoria Station in I London on Sunday night to welcome the return of I Mr. Warner's M.C.C. cricket team from Australia. I As the time drew near for the arrival of the Dover I boat train, the crowd grew to such dimensions that it defied the efforts of the station staff to cope with it. The services of a strong body of police were secured, and just as the first portion of the train steamed in a large number of people were got outside the barriers. But the presence of the train at the platform was the signal for another rush, and for a time the police were powerless. Women formed a large proportion of the crowd. The train arrived in two portions, of which the second brought the cricketers. As they were recognised loud cheers were raised, and sticks, hats, umbrellas, and handkerchiefs were waved in the air. No sooner had a few of the players alighted than they were taken posses- sion of by the crowd, and it was with diffi- culty that they could gain their cabs. Others I of the team, seeing the fate of their friends, refused to leave their carriages, the doors of which were guarded by porters, and police. Subsequently f the cricketers made their escape from the other ¡ side of the train, and when this became known to the crowd strenuous efforts were made to reach them. A rush was made through the train, them. A rush was made through the train, but most of the doors had been locked. I Many persons tried to slip across the buffers, but they were sent back by the police, and ¡ one or two athletic young men attempted to get over the carriages themselves. While the crowd I was exhausting itself in a vain endeavour to reach I the other platform the remaining members of the team succeeded in making their escape from the station. Several of the players were recognised by the crowd gathered outside, and received a loud cheer as they drove away.
