BISLEY MEETING. ENGLAND WIN THE ELCHO. At the Bisley meeting on Friday the annual trial of skill between representative eights of England, Scotland, and Ireland, took place for the Elcho Challenge Shield. The shoot is one of fifteen shots at each of the long ranges, with match rifles, and since Lord Elcho established the competition in 1862 England has won a score of times, Ireland twelve, and Scotland seven times. The Scots have the honour of the highest score made in the competition—1,696 eight years ago-and gallant little Wales has had a record of quite another character in the hopeless task of finding teams to battle with her big rivals. England led finely until the last range, where the failing light at seven o'clock told its tale upon the scoring. England felt this atmospheric pressure" most, and her rivals drew closer. The Englishmen recovered a little when some dozen points remained of their lead, and, holding their rivals splendidly to the last, won an exciting match by the highes score for five years, all the teams scoring more than the Irish winning total of 1,537 last year. The scores were :-England, 1,609; Scotland, 1,595 Ireland, 1,585. In the Prince of Wales Service Rifle Competition Sergeant J. Welch, 1st V.B. West Kent Regiment, won the badge and 9100, with a score of 96. Corporal Simcock, 2nd V.B. Cheshire Regiment, won £ 3 with a score of 92. EXCELLENT SHOOTING. I At Bisley on Saturday, in the "Daily Graphic" competition, there were twenty-five highest possi- ble scores of 35, and nine competitors who made 15 points on tie shots will again fire for the cup. In the "Graphic" competition at 500 yards there were twenty-four possibles, and five of those who were equal on tie shots itill also shoot again. The "Daily Telegraph" Cup competition also ended in a tie. In the Barlow competition at three ranges the first prize was won by Private John Craig, 5th Lanark. As the result of shooting further ties, Corporal T. Lewis, 2nd V.B. Welsh, won the Daily Graphic" Cup, and Corporal J. Shannon, 3rd V.B. Welsh, the "Graphic" Cup. The "Daily Telegraph" tie was also fired, and the winner was Sergeant Cowan, 3rd K.O.S.B. The winner of the Duke of Cambridge Prize was Sergeant Fulton, Queen's Westminsters. WINNER OF THE BRONZE MEDAL. I The shooting concluded on Tuesday in the first stage of the King's, with the result that Private Morris, Glamorgan, with an aggregate of 101, won the bronze medal. Earl Roberts's Cup went to the team of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Oxford Light Infantry. The Chancellors' Plate was won by the eight representing Cambridge and the Lucas Challenge Cup by the Glasgow Brigade. The Volunteers again carried off the United Service Challenge Cup with 743 points, the I Regular team being second, and the Militia third. Sergeant Wallingford, School of Musketry, who tied with Lieut. Miller, 1st Derby, for the Wimbledon Cup, won on further tie shots. LOCAL SCORES.
