Both the representative Associa- tion football and hockey matches will shortly be decided (as we write), and we anticipate Oxford will win their first representa- tive hockey match since 1900. Obviously there will be plenty of titular matter to discuss next month, in all conscience ! General items of interest must now be briefly permitted. Death has robbed us of two famous Oxford oarsmen during the month— viz.. Canon Bourne (who rowed in the ever-famous " seven - oared- race" of 1842), and Captain D. H, McLean (who rowed v, Cambridge from 1883 ^^ 1887 in- clusive). The last named equally famous " coach " died of fever at the front, where (by the way) Mr. W. A. L. Fletcher, another renowned Oxonian oarsman and coach, has been covering himself with glory. The mover of the Address at the opening of Parliament by the King this year was Mr. H. .W. Forster, an Oxford cricket " Blue," and an excellent all-round sportsman, who takes politics very seriously. A gloom was cast over Univer- sity athletics proper by the sen- sational death of Mr. Drew (Merton College), who expired on the O.U.A.C. track on Feb- ruary 2nd last, while the death of Messrs. F. J. Greenfield (Cam- bridge) and Reddie - Waddell (Oxford), both prominent sports- men, intensified this. Mr. Green- field died at the front as the result of gross maltreatment by the Boers. Another Oxford ath- lete, Captain Mullins, has just been awarded the Victoria Cross for doughty deeds in South Africa. . 228 BAILY S MAGAZINE. [March Death of Mr. D. H. Maclean.— As mentioned in the preceding paragraph, the Buy Maxaquin Online South African War has claimed several prominent rowing men amongst its victims, notably Messrs. A. W. Swanston and N. F. Calvert,' the Cambridge •* blues." Another victim has been added to the list. Captain D. H. Maclean, of the 69th Company Imperial Yeomanry, who died at Johannesburg on February 5th, of colitis. Mr. Maclean was edu- cated at Eton and New College, . Oxford. He assisted Eton to win the Ladies' Plate at Henley Regatta in 1882, and on going up to Oxford was given a seat in the eight in 1883, when he rowed at ** 5," and had the pleasure of assisting in a Dark Blue victory. He rowed for Oxford for five years in all, 1883 to 1887 in- clusive, and was President of the Boat Club in 1885, in which year, with his brother Hector (since deceased) as partner, he won the Silver Goblets at Henley. In recent years Mr. Maclean has devoted no little time and trouble to coaching crews at Oxford, and he has had the satisfaction of act- ing as mentor to several of the suc- cessful Dark Blue eights during the last decade. As a •* coach," he was acknowledged to have few superiors. When the war broke out he volunteered for service with the Somerset Yeomanry, and his death at the time when the war is approaching completion was par- ticularly sad. He will be mourned by a very wide circle of friends. Rugby International Hatches. — At the time of writing, three of six Rugby International games of the Buy Maxaquin present season had been de- cided, and with results by no means flattering to England. England v. Wales, the first in- ternational of the season, was played at Cardiff before an enor- mous crowd, and for the third year in succession Wales proved successful, the score in favour of the Principality being two goals and a try (13 points) to nil. The game was hardly so one-sided as the score would indicate, and the losers were handicapped by the absence of J. Daniell, the Cambridge forward, and an injury to Taylor early in the game. The English forwards held their own fairly well, but the Welsh three- quarters were decidedly smarter than the English quartette, Gwyn Nicholls being quite the most brilliant individual player on the field. England's performance, however, was made to look par- ticularly poor when Wales met Scotland. The Scottish team was of a somewhat experimental character, only six old inter- nationals being included. The game was played at Edinburgh, and from the start the Welshmen were out- classed. The Scotch forwards were irresistible, their rushes sorely trying the opposing defence. The halves, also, were quite equal to the Welsh pair. Scotland ran up the big score of 18 points before Wales replied. The visitors scored twice just before the finish, and the final score was three goals and a try to a goal and a try in favour of Scotland. On the same day England succumbed to Ireland at Dublin. It was hoped that with the weak spots remedied in the team that opposed Wales England would be a match for their rivals. But these hopes were doomed to disappointment. The match was very keenly con- tested, and the teams were well matched. The English forwards did well in the tight scrimmages, but in the loose the Irishmen were seen to advantage. The English three-quarters did some clever work, but the halves were cer- tainly inferior to the rival pair.

The Assooiation Internationals. — The three International Asso- ciation games in which England participates will all be played in March. The first match is Eng- land V, Ireland, on Saturday March 9th, at Southampton. England v. Wales will be played at Newcastle nine days later, on Monday, March 1 8th. The England v. Scotland match will be played at the Crystal Palace on Saturday, March 30th. Mr. Charles Whymper*s Pic- tures at OraTes' Galleries.— The exhibition of Mr. Charles Whymper's paintings at Messrs. Graves' Galleries, 6, Pall Mall, which was opened early in the month, is one that appeals to both sportsmen and naturalists. It
