held in San Jose next week. Record
smashing is sure to result. A number of
road races have been slated for to-day.
Among the sportsmen the greatest interest
is manifested in the live-bird and blue
rock shoots which are held on Sundays at
the Oakland track.
Anglers have learned that good fishing

The great relay race of last Sunday has
been run over again every night the past
week at the different clubs, and it is gener
ally admitted that the Bay City Wheel
men won the cup on their merits. Their
earn was strong from beginning to end,

and they could have won by a much larger
margin but for the unfortunate fall of
T. A. Griffiths at the start of the fourth re
lay. Last year Griffiths made this relay in
26 mm. 44 sec, which was then a world's
record for ten miles. Sunday, owing to
his injuries, he could do no better than 29
mm. 48 sec, a difference of over 3 minutes.
The Garden City Cyclers of San Jose
have been talking a good deal about the
hard luck wich followed some of their
best men. They seem to have forgotten
that the falls their men suffered were but
part of the race and might as well be
attributed to careless or reckless riding.
For instance, when T. Delmas went
bead over heels near Milbrae it
was his own fault through look
ing around. Carey was fortunately close
by with a new wheel fitted to Delmas,
which the latter got on and was off with
but little delay. On this relay, when
Harris took his terrible fall, mowing down
the whole bunch, Delmas was up front
setting pace, and consequently escaped the
tumble which the others took. Was this
The Olympics made a game race
throughout, and would have been a
prominent factor had not their team been
crippled before the race was run by the
injury of three of their best riders, neces
sitating two withdrawing and the substi
tution of untrained men. One of these
latter, however, proved a wonder, J. E.
Edwards, who won his relay in handsome
style after taking a severe header near the
start. Foster rode a great finish, as he
always does, and was behind only be
cause the men before him kept him "back.
. The Acme Club put up a great contest,
finishing a trifle over a minute behind the
leaders. There were some errors in judg
ment in the riding of this team. Kitchen
did not make his relay as fast as he could
have done, owing to a dispute with Alex
ander, the Garden City rider, as to pace
making. Byrne, on the seventh, can do
much bettter than 28:57 any day. Rose,
on the eighth, would not accept the lead
which Byrne gave him, but waited for the
Bay City man, Terrill. The latter can ride
rings around Rose, as the result of their
relay showed. Castleman made a fine fin
ish, though a collision with a dog lost him
fully a minute.
lt was a day of accidents and incidents,
yet very satisfactory to the wheelmen of
this city, in that a local club won a fair
am) hotly contested race, granted as being
the greatest event of its kind in the world.
Eastern wheelmen have no such annual
race, although different localities have
from time to time held 100-mile relay races,
and even 1000-mile interstate relay races
from Chicago to New York.
The latest in San Jose since the relay is
that the San Jose Road Club wants to
race the Garden City Cyclers around the
Lay with the same two teams that com
peted Jin last Sunday's event, the Road
Club reserving the privilege of putting
another man on the last ten miles in place
of Ziegler. lam inclined to think if they
can have Ziegler they had better keep him
on that last relay ; he may be needed. '
In Oakland a proposition is on foot to
arrange another 100-mile relay race be
tween the Acme Club Wheelmen and the
Bay City Wheelmen of this city, the teams
to be the same as competed in the race
last Sunday. Both clubs are willing if a
suitable trophy can be provided for.
A very good picture is presented here
with of the winning team, that of the Bay
City Wheelmen, the personnel of which is
as follows: "... . .
. T. A. Griffiths, 21 years, 155 pounds;
C. S. Wells, 26 years, 190 pounds ; Archie
Reid, 24 years, 180 pounds; W. A. Terrill,
20 years, 180 pounds: T. S. Hall, 19 years,
146 pounds; H. F. Terrill. 21 years, 180
pounds ; F. G. Lacey, 20 years, 130 pounds;
A.J. Menne, 19 years, 142 pounds; E.
Languetin, 22 years, 130 pounds; E. Ul
bricht, 33 years, 160 pounds, Average age,
2234 years ; average weight, 159 3-10 pounds.
, Captain Theodore C. Dodge also appears
in the picture, together with the trophy
won in the race and the club's mascot,
"Mike." The captain was mainly instru
mental in bringing victory to the club, to
gether with F. H. Watters and W. D.
Sheldon, for it was these three men who
selected and placed the team and kept
after the men and with them until the race
was over. »
Now that the relay has passed, interest
in matters of cycling has centered in San
Jose, where a great race-meet will be held
next Friday and Saturday, April 19 and 20.
San Jose is alone in its ability to attract
crowds to bicycle races on weekdays. In
any other part of the State such an event
would be a failure. . The racers from differ
ent parts of the State are already in daily
training at the track, and the work they
are doing clearly demonstrates that Cali
fornia is to witness some wonderful riding
The surprise of the week is the wonder
ful development of Coulter. A week ago
he was slow compared with the others, but
now he is riding as fast as Ziegler. Every
day the two of them have desperate sprints
down the stretch, Coulter invariably lead
ing across the tape. Thursday, after a
hard afternoon's work, he rode an unpaced
third of a. mile, flying start, in 38 1-5 sec
onds, which is under the world's record.
He made the last quarter in 23 seconds
and the last eighth in 14 seconds. Har
bottle is also riding very fast, making a
mile in 2:06 Thursday. ' Ray Macdonald
has suffered a relapse and is now confined
to his bed with a high fever. Eddie Bald
is in fine shape and is entered in the races
next week. Edwards, "Wells, Delmas and
Osen of the Rambler team are in fine con-
dition. the former riding faster than he has
ever ridden before. San Jose wheelmen
are very sore over Osen's recent suspension,
as he is thereby shut out of the races next
week. •:.*- ;.-.'■■ ■; •'! '_. ;■■'■
The class A men form a pretty speedy
group by themselves, and are riding
very fast, especially Jones, Chapman
and Moody. Sampson of the Acme Club
arrived at the track Wednesday. Byrne of
the Imperials will commence training on
Monday. The class A one-mile race is
going to be a fine event, and as tandem
pacing is to be put in the final of the heats
the record may be lowered. In this event
are Jones, Moody, Sherman, Smith, Nissen,
Byrne, Chapman, Languetin, Dieckman.
McFarland, H. Terrill, A. Reid, Rose and
Frazier. ' The latter is champion of Oregon
and Washington, and won over 100 firsts
last season., - -
Tandem pacing will also be put in the
one-mile invitation and the two-mile
scratch, class B, the Garden City Cyclers
being desirous of getting records for* their
new track. / >
The following sweeping challenge has
been issued by the "kindergarten" of the
Garden City Cyclers:
We here announce that the Garden City
Cyclers' "kindergarten" would like to arrange
a race with any kindergarten team (members
under 19 years of age) on the Pacific Coast,
from a quarter-mile dash up to -a fifty-mile
relay race. The members of the Garden City
Cyclers' kindergarten are: Tony Delmas,
Elmer Sherman, Dick Moody, Oscar Smith and
Allan Jones. Very respectfully, v i,"

there will be an entertainment and ball at
the Road Club Hall. C. E. High won the
medal offered by the club to the man
attending the most runs, he having at

injured badly in the relay race, is slowly
improving, but will not be out for some
time. A committee has been appointed to
secure if possible the use of the Central
Park track in this city on which to hold a
race meet, there being"no track available for
the club's use in San Jose. The club has

i A large party of ladies rode up from San
Jose last Saturday afternoon to lend the
encouragement of their presence to the
Garden City Cyclers in the great relay race
Sunday. After the race, in which their
club finished an easy third, they rode back
to San Jose on the Oakland side of the bay,
much discouraged, and with half an inten
tion of joining the Associated Clubs them
selves and entering a team in next year's
event. The riders were all members of
the Ladies' Cycling Club of San Jose, an
organization with a large membership of
R. Harry Kavanagh, M. Mitchell Shields

Catching Fingerlings in Paper-Mill Creek.
Those Who Had Good and Poor Luck.
Among the large number of anglers who
returned from Point Reyes and vicinity
last Sunday evening was an old veteran
stream-whipper who has not missed an
opening day of the trout-fishing season
since 1870. His basket contained , several
small fish, with an occasional goOd-size
trout for display purposes on top of the
heap. He said that of the many streams
he had fished in the past twenty years
the Paper-mill. was the most prolific of
any creek, considering the enormous quan
tity of fingerlings and large fish that have
been taken from it, especially in recent
"Why, if the Fish Commissioners
fail to keep this beautiful stream well
stocked with trout every year," said the
old angler, "there cannot possibly beany
trout in the stream in five years hence.
See this crowd? Why, there are enough
anglers here to clean out the creek from
top to bottom. The Lagunitas and Paper
mill are very convenient to this city, and
the train time to Point Reyes is such that
an angler can leave in the morning, get
five or six hours of fishing and return on
the same-day with a nice mess offish.
This is the principal reason why the
Paper-mill is so largely patronized by the
. "Now, there are other streams not any
further from the city the Sonoma, for
instance, where just as good fishing, if not
better, can be had, but the railway accom
modations are such that only those who
can afford two days' vacation can visit
Glen Ellen. .- -v;'
"If a train was run to the latter place on
Sunday .mornings, returning from Glen
Ellen at 5 p. m., I have no doubt that the
Sonoma Creek would receive a large
amount of the patronage the North Pacific
road is now enjoying. There are several
good streams south of this city, such as
the Los Gatos, Boulder and their tribu
taries, .that will pan out splendidly until
the latter part of the season, but the rates
to those places are too high, and as a con
sequence few anglers from San Francisco
visit them on flying trips."
Many complaints have been made of the
slaughter, of tingerlings last Sunday by
alleged anglers, many of whom actually
boasted of their achievements. Any ang
ler who will boast of having killed sev
eral hundred little fish ranging in length
from two to five inches should be con
signed to a glass case and presented to the
Academy of Sciences as one of the
living curiosities of the nineteenth
century. If an angler cannot do
any better oh a stream than to fill his creel
with a lot of little fry, he should quit . fish
ing and wait until such time as the trout
will have grown to something j like decent
proportions. Of course there are gluttons
among anglers as well as in all other lines
of sport, but the man who feel 3 a pride in
hogging everything regardless of size and
weight is quickly marked out as being a
fitting companion for those who, like him
self, will ; not stop at anything as long as
there is an opening for slaughter. '.'■■■■"
Give the little fellows a chance to grow,
gentlemen, and when a fry of three or four
inches happens to fasten to your hook take
it off gently and return the little fellow to
its element. ' Who knows but the very
fingerling . that you liberated i to-day may
fill a large space in your basket or that of a
brother angler later in the. season? The
Supervisors of this city will be asked, in
the near future, to pass an ordinance mak
ing it ".: a misdemeanor for any person to
have in their possession trout ol less than
six '.'inches'! in length. :
John Siebe and Al Wieland succeeded in

• Professional boxing contests are to be
resumed in the Imperial Athletic Club of
Colma. Managers Bergen and McAuliffe
have sold their interests in the club, and in
future the resort will be managed by a
prominent sporting man,' who will leave
nothing undone to popularize^ the sport of
boxing. The contests, of course, will . be
limited to a certain number of rounds, and
the referee will be instructed to stop any
match wherein the principals resort to bru
tality as a means of gaining a victory. The
Colma Club will be fitted up in first-class
style and the first match will take place
somewhere about the middle of May. An
attempt has been made to consummate a
match between Peppers and King, bu^ as
the former has insisted that King must
weigh not. over 154 pounds at the ringside
the chances of a meeting between those
men are decidedly poor. King has grown
very stout since he last boxed in this city,

Official List of the Great Intercollegiate
Games at the Olympic Grounds.
In case the weather is favorable this
afternoon for outdoor athletics the ad
mirers of the sport can very safely count
upon seeing games which should certainly
attract an immense gathering to the
Olympic Club's outdoor grounds. The
crack athletics of the two universities, viz.,
Stanford and Berkeley, will meet in ath
letic competition, and as the entrants for
the various events which have already
been announced are in magnificent con
dition record-smashing should certainly
result. The star athletes of the University
of California who are booked to meet the
champions of different universities in the
East next month will make their last ap
pearance oh this coast to-day in athletic
competition prior to their departure. Their
opponents from Palo Alto, according to the
very latest intelligence, are ready for the
game, and although they may meet with a
defeat, it can be very safely said that some
of the boys who will don the cardinal
colors of Stanford have some big surprises
in store for those who are now confident of
seeing Berkeley throwing cinders in Stan
Scoggins and Barnes, the champion
sprinters of Berkeley, will need be in good
condition to defeat Stanford's crack snort
distance runners. Scoggins is credited
with having run 100 yards in 10 seconds,
but if he will do 10>£ to-day the crack
sprinters of the Olympic Club will be sur
prised, as they have put Scoggins down
for 10% seconds. The track is in excellent
condition; in fact it could not be any
better for sprinting, and should the wind
remain low during the afternoon there can
be no excuse offered by the contestants
for poor performances." . '
According to the very best authorities
on athletics the greatest feats that have
taken - place at a field-day on this coast
will be placed in the shade to-day. An
athletic meeting such as will be given this
afternoon should attract an immense
crowd, and it goes without saying that
when the games are over a good opinion
can be formed of the popularity that iirst
class athletic sports commands on this
"In order to maintain her relative rank
with respect to Berkeley," writes a cor
respondent from Palo - Alt-9, "Stanford
must make at least thirty-two points, but
Captain Brown says thirty-eight is not too
little to expect of his men, and if the boys
make that score it will be largely due to
the efforts of Brown himself, who has
made a model track captain."

The foregoing is a complete list; those

Stanford expects much from all her men
and is at a disadvantage in having but a
single man in certain events where she
should have three. It will be noted that
Berkeley, in most of the events, has en
tered more men than Stanford, which gives
her an advantage.
In the runs Bernard will give Scoggins
a hard fight, and but for the former's
recent illness there are many who are ready
to assert that Bernard could make the 100
in 10 1-5 seconds. Woodward is doing well,
but has not been in training as long as
most of the men. '
Knowing ones say that both Brown and
Copeland can make the 830-yard run in 2
minutes fiat and the mile record for the
coast is likely to be lowered by D. Brown
from 4 :36 to 4:33, or thereabouts. ■■
Johnson and Culver at the broad jump
are well over the 21-foot 6-inch mark, and
Culver and Dole each clear within a few
inches of 10 feet at the pole vault.
Whether Frazer can beat Dozter at the
bicycle race is a question. Dozier has
made a fine record in the southern part of
the State against such men as Burke and
Fox. but Stanfordians expect to see him
left in the rear by Frazer. PT*^
First place in the shot-put and hammer
throws will doubtless go to the U. C, but
Stanford is likely to get second in both
The mile walk will be very interesting,
as Farmer of Stanford walks in about the
same time as Bake well, Berkeley's pride.
Contestants Who Will Meet in the Courts
The handball courts have prepared an
excellent programme of games for to
morrow. At the San Francisco court a
match has been arranged between two of
the leading players of this city which, no
doubt, will be very interesting as the
players are very evenly matched and it is
thought that whichever one of the two will
appear in the better physical condition
when the game is called will capture the
stake. Besides this special match there
wiil be several other games of interest to
the lovers of the sport. At the Union
court Manager McMunus has booked the
following plaversfor the day: P. T. Don
nelly and M. Dillon against J. Feeny and
R. Linehan. T. McManus and C. Long
against D. Doherty and H. Batzner. Jack
Riordan and Jack Dillon against A. Pen
noyer ana William Kelly. The bill of
athletic fare to be introduced at the San
Francisco court reads :
First game— Darius ancj G. Ward to play
J. Brown and P. Barry.
Second game— M. McNeil and G. McDonald to
play J. Rodgers and P. Ryan. "
Third game— J. Slatterv to play P. Kelly, a
single-handed game for $25 a side.
Fourth game— J. Morris and W. Fuller to play
C. McKinuon and D. Connolly. -
Fifth and final game— J. Jones, the Australian
champion, to play J Harlow and P. Cahill of
Chicago the best of seven games for $50 a side.
This game is exciting great interest in hand
ball circles, as Cahill has two fine hands and
his partner Harlow, the well-known amateur,
is noted for his hard serving. A few bets have
been made on the outcome of this game, with
Harlow and Cahill on the long end.

SACRAMENTO, April 13.— that is
talked about in shooting circles at the
present time is the bluerock tournament to
be held at the Kimball and Upson grounds
in this city on the 21st inst., and many of
the local trap-lovers are putting in their
spare hours at practice shooting in the
hope of giving visiting shots a close rally
for the various prizes offered. Local shots
are rapidly getting into form, as evinced
by the scores made at the trap last Sun
day. Nicolaus, Chapman and Soule broke
23 out of 25; Flint, Newbert and Greenlaw
accounted for 22 each, and Mohr, Upson.
Chapman, Flint, E. Nicolaus, Morrison
and Goerk smashed 20 of the bluerock
The live-bird shoot of the Pelican Club,
which takes place on the same date as the
bluerock tournament; is also attracting
great interest. The Spoonbill Club go to
the trap to-morrow for their second club
match and good scores may be looked for,
as competition is active.
In cycling circles the interest is con
stantly increasing, and bloomer costumes
are constantly becoming more popular
among the ladies. There are a number of
country excursions arranged for to-mor
row in which the male contingency will
convey the lunches for the parties", and
runs will be made into the surrounding
vicinity to a distance of twenty miles.
The Athletic . Club Wheelmen will go on I
the tram to Davisville and make a run to j
Esparto via Woodland, probably returning
by way of Winters. They claim that the ;
trip is beautiful, and anticipate much
pleasure from their outing.
Fish Commissioner Morrison says that
the new law governing the fishing interests
gives universal satisfaction to the majority
of persons engaged in that occupation
along the Sacramento River, and a num
ber of them have promised to keep him in
formed of any violation of the law that
takes place. Morrison has made several
trips along the river, and is arranging a
system of patrol that will make it a simple
impossibility for the law to be violated.
Knowing ones of this section claim that no
better man could have been chosen to fill
Tbe appointment of Mr. Helms as Game
Warden lor this county has struck dismay
to the hearts of the hunters up and down
the river, and never before have the lives
and happiness of the duck family been so
Eeaceful and assured. For years past it
as been the custom for this class of gun
owners to kill all the duck necessary for
the consumption of themselves and fami
lies at all times and seasons, but Warden
Helms has been dropping onto them like a
meteor out of a clear sky, and in several
cases, scarcely had the blue smoke drifted
from the muzzle of their guns when his
hand fell on their shoulder, coming from
they • knew not where, in fact he seems to
be everywhere and nowhere, and is proving
himself a very efficient officer. °
A party of young sportsmen boarded an
incoming train in Yolo County this week
and ran into Commissioner Morrison, who
was returning from Da visville.
"You had better allow me to inspect the
contents of those game-bags, young men,"
remarked the Commissioner. ■
"I can't deny that I have a duck," re
marked one of the party, as he displayed a
fowl denuded of plumage and with its
head, feet and wings cut off.
"That's all right, said Morrison, "take it
home and eat it." W hen the train ar
rived in Sacramento County Mr. Morrison"
stepped up to the young man and said,
"I'll take a look at that bird," but no bird
could be found, it had -gone through the
car-window when crossing the Yolo bridge.
There is talk of another coursing match
in the near future aud dog-owners are
looking forward to it • with great in
terest. So far Governor Jim has proved
himself to be the fastest footed of all the
many fast dogs .of Sacramento County,
although Kelly's pup Jack is a good second
and bids fair to head the list on reaching
his majority. Judging by present com
ment these dogs will cafrv Sacramento
County money in the i next State meeting.

News That Will Interest Wheelmen, Anglers
; During the j next few days all of the
crack bicycle riders on the coast will as
semble in San Jose and put the finishing
touches to their ' training for the opening
meet "of the Garden City Cyclers, which
takes place next Friday and Saturday.
The'prizes, valued at over. $1500, are on
exhibition, and many of those entered can
be seen standing near by and glancing
longingly at them. " ' - .'.
Last evening the- Observatory Cyclers
held a run to Santa Clara. This club will
give a bullshead breakfast next Sunday at
Blackberry Farm, y , -
The suspension of Oscar Osen has aroused
general condemnation among bicycle riders,.
and every effort will be made to have hircTV
reinstated before the coming meet. Osen
has been doing some good training lately,
and was never in better riding form m his
life - "'•"»*>
The Cyclers have refused to allow the
Road Club the use of their track for a
meet in June, and consequently that club
will depart from the usual order of things
and hold their meet in San Francisco.
President Bailey of the Road Club states
that meet will probably be held on the
track of the San Francisco Bicycle Asso
ciation, at Central Park, June 15.
The Road Club's next five-mile road race
for the silver cup will take place on April
28 over the course in East San Jose.
Walter Harris, who was painfully in.
jured by falling from his wheel in the relay
race last Sunday, is improving and will be
about in a couple of weeks, y y^i ■
The membership of the Road Club &t
present is ninety-eight, with ten appli_a.
tions before the board.
Bald and Macdonald are in active trail..
ing at the track; but it is not definitely
known whether they will ride or not at the
The Ladies' Bicycle Club is growing rap
idly, and Captain Edith Murgotten reports
more interest will be awakened in the club
when the new uniform has been adopted.
The committee on uniform has not re
ported yet, though it is pretty rally
understood that a stunning costume of
bloomers, cap and jacket will be chosen.
The appointment of John D. Mackenzie
as Game Warden by the Supervisors is
meeting with the approval of the sports
men throughout the country. Mr. Mac
kenzie has long been known as a lover of
legitimate sports, and his appointment to
the office is a guarantee that the game
laws will be strictly enforced. It is hoped
that the counties bordering Santa Clara I |
County will make as good selections, so '
that the destroying of the eggs and young
of birds and the dynamiting of fish in this
section can be stopped.
The excitement. attendant on the open
ing of the trout season has somewhat
abated, still the creeks within easy reach
of the city are well fished and good-sized
baskets taken. That the close season for
trout should be extended to May 1 is best
evidenced by the large number of finger
lings that find their way to the frying
pan. In the more mountainous streams
the water is yet a little too high for good
fishing and the fish are rather sluggish in
rising to the fly, as the high water carries
down sufficient insect food.
