Hamilton ScoresThis reverse spurred on the Dons, and it was their just reward when Hamilton equalised. Harris, the former Queen's Park centre, making his first appearance for the Dons, sent the inside-right through and the latter shot well out of Breen's reach. The Aberdeen side gave a much improved display in the second half, and no one grudged them their lead when Hamilton got a second goal. Hamilton was unluckv not to register his hat-trick, for shortly afterwards he hit the crossbar with a terrific drive. At the close, Sir Crawford McCullagh, Lord Mayor, presented each the nonsmoking members of the Aberdeen team with a fountain pen, and the players who smoke with a hundred cigarettes and case each. Mr James Finnie, director, acknowledged on behalf of the team and later presented the Lord Mayor with a gift.
