Hay.Robertson, George Condie, and Sergeant-Major Chalmers gave in no returns. Dow and Strath, having tied for second place,, played oft a single round.

Club, landed a popular winner, olosely followed by J. G. M'Pherson, who had run Bob Andrews so close in the first and second rounds of the professional competition the previous day.
