vosterday, having returned from the Los An

clever work in the saddle. Hinrichs had the

he had not entirely recovered from his journey

I do not refer in particular to the racing
yesterday, although in fact it was hard as
usual, and might be called tough, but all
in all it is getting to be racing that is hard
to boat. It is a question whether long
continued race meetings of the duration
of the present one are prolific of prosperity
to the average race-goer. I think not.
Yesterday was the one hundred and fiftieth
day of the meeting, and I doubt very much
whether most of them that passed out of
the gates after the last race had one dollar

A SPORTING MELANGE
Champion Handball Players of
the World to Meet in
The Olympic Club's Swimming,
Boxing and Baseball
The local champions of handball have
been firing hot shot at each other for some
weeks p ast i ana " not very long ago Cham
pion Harlow woke up one bright and
sunny morning and repaired to the house
of a friend, to whom he said he had had a
most wonderful dream.
"I dreamt," said Champion Harlow,
"that I met and easily defeated Champion
Riordan, and that my friends went wild
with joy over the result. I feel now as if
I was really qualified and competent to ac
complish that trick under the light of
Hariow's friend acquiesced and the re
sult was that a challenge appeared next
day from Harlow to Riordan, which more
than took the latter by surprise. Riordan
in reply sends the following to the Call
San Franctsco, April 21, 1895.
Editor San Francisco Call— Dear Sic: In refer
ence to trie article published in your sporting
column of to-day's CALL, I wish to state I
have positively declined to play any game
of handball in the San Francisco handball
court. In regard to Hariow's challenge, I
will agree to meet him best five in nine,
21-point game, for $100 or $200 per Fide,
game to be played in the Union or Occidental
handball courts. I have my own money to
back me whenever the former sees fit to make a
match. Yours respectfully, John Riokdan.
The lovers of handball cannot under
stand Riordan's action in refusing to play
in the San Francisco ball court. If Rior
dan had broad-gauge ideas he should cer
tainly agree to meet Harlow in any of the
court's. "There is no doubt that he* will be
accorded fair play in any court.
Lawlor, the Irish champion, who is at
I;resent in New York, has accepted a ciial
enge from James Fitzgerald oi Cork, Ire
land, to play a rubber for $JSO a side and
the championship of the world, the rubber
to consist of fifteen games and each game
to contain 21 aces, to be finished in one
day in the Cork racquet c ourt, Grattan
street. The challenge appeared in Dublin
Sport on April 6, directed to the leading
players of the world. Henry Armstrong
of J. J. O'Brien d; Co. nas just received a
letter from Lawlor, stating that the latter
has accepted the challenge lor a match
where endurance will cut a prominent fig
ure, and that he will soon depart for his
Grattan court is 84 feet in length and 41
feet wide, having no back wall.
L. \V. Blankman of Potter Valley has
sent word to th® Call that a man named
Ryan is engaged in killing deer for their
hides. To escape from the heavy snow on
the mountains the game have wandered
into the valley, and are now being slaugh
tered by Ryan and other poachers. There
is no doubt that Commissioner Erueric
will send a deputy to the place in question
when he receives further particu ais.
A special meeting of the Olympic Gun
Club will be held in the wheelmen's com
partment of the club on Wednesday even
ing for the purpose of discusain^ a game
and fisli preserve.
The Olympic Club boxing tournament
will he held in the gymnasium of the club
on May 28. It will be open to amateurs in
good standing. Thare will be six events of
four rounds each. 'Only lirst-class boxers
need apply for place.
The Imperial Club of Colma has matched
Joe King and Henry Peppers (colored) for
a twenty-round fight, to take place on the
evening of May 2«. The pugilists have
signed articles to box ut 108 pounds, which
weight it is extremely doubtful that either
man can reach and be in good fettle.
King recently left this city for Bakersiield,
where he engaged in farming for a time.
His employer sent word to the
champion boxer of Bakersh'eld — a
blacksmith — that he had a raw
recruit on his ranch who could do some
lighting, and that he would have no objec
tion to match him against any man in the
count}'. The "iron man"* quickly ac
cepted the challenge and a light was
arranged. It took place in Bakersfield,
and Mr. Blacksmith went gently to sleep
in the second round. The latters friends
are still wondering who that plowman
could have been and where he made his
escape to aiter the war was over.
The Olympic Club tournament will take
place on the evening of May 21 and the
bill of aquatic fare reads: One hundred
yards' open race, 100 yards' maiden, 50
yards' open, fancy diving, plain
diving, tub race, candle race, uuar
ter-m'ile race. Superintendent Ken
nedy alias Linqnist Tom, is now talking
up a relay race from the foot of Mission
street to the Oakland mole, a distance of
about four miles. Kennedy is of the
opinion that there can be selected from
among the natatorß of the club ten able
bodied fellows who can give a good ac
count of themselves in a race of this kind
against any ten amateur swimmers of the

MADDEN WHIPS CONNORS
Twenty-Five Rounds Fought
Before the Seaside Ath
FOR BANTAM CHAMPIONSHIP.
Fitzsimmons Thinks He Is Not Be
ing- Treated Right by the
CONEY ISLAND, N. V., April 22.—
There was only a small crowd at the Sea
side Athletic Club's arena when the sports
began this evening. The first bout was
between Alf Hanlon of England and
"Shadow Maber of Australia. They were
matched to box six rounds. Maber was
declared the winner on points.
The next bout was between Jake Skelly
of Brooklyn and Johnny Gorman of Long
Island City, eight rounds at 127 pounds.
The fighting was hot and it was declared a
The big event of the night was then in
order. It was a twenty-five round go be
tween Johnny Connors of Springfield, 111.,
and Jack Madden of Brooklyn at 105
pounds for the bantam championship.
Madden seemed to have a shade the best of
the early rounds, though in the sixth
round both were bleeding at the nose and
in the succeeding rounds it was give and
take in a lively manner.
In the eleventh Maddens stock went up
again when he jabbed Connors live times !
without a return. Madden had the fight I
in hand from this time on, though Connors
made a game attempt to force the fighting
in the twentieth.
Round 25— Both men clinched, and Mad
den led with his left, but was stopped. He
sent his left into Connors' stomach with
out a return. Madden j.ibbed Connors in
the mouth three times, and got in the wind
with his right and left on his opponent's '
jaw. Throughout the fight there seemed J
to be something wrong with Maddens
right hand. The referee declared Madden
He Says He la Sot Being Treated Fairly
NEW YORK, N. V. f April 22.— 80b Fitz
siramons expressed the belief that Joe
Vendig is trying to give him a shade or !
two the worst of it in the arrangement for
his fight with Corbett. "Manny" Friend,
wlio represents Fitzsimmons, said:
"Our money is up, but the Florida Ath
letic Club has not made its guaranty of
$5000, and unless it does so shortly we will j
take decisive steps. It looks as though J
they were a little bit afraid that they can- ,
not pull off the fight and want to crawl.
"We understood that the money had
been posted long ago, but to our surprise !
Stakeholder Phil Dwyer says it is not.
"If the Florida Athletic Club thinks it l
can peddle this right about and dispose of ;
it where it wants to it will get fooled. We
shall have something to say about that. I
We are ready to fight, but certainly want
all the parties to live up to the articles of
agreement, which Vendig has not done."
CORBEXX WJIXTS THE FIGHT.
He Will Meet Fitzaimmons in Any State in
CINCINNATI, Ohio, April 22.— Referring
to the hitch with the Florida Athletic Club
Champion James J. Corbett, who is filling
a Week's engagement here, says:
"I wiU meet Bob Fitzsimmons in any
State in the Union. Joe Vendig has my
permission to transfer the scene of opera
tions to Texas, Colorado, Louisiana or any
other State. I will meet Fitzsimmons be
fore any club in the country, but it must
be for a purse. I will not go out of Amer
ica to take Fitzsimmons on, and if it is not
possible for us to come together here, I
will go to England and fight Peter Jackson.
"He has first call fora meeting on for
eign soil. I once refused to go to London
to settle with Jackson, and if I took Fitz
simmons there he would have the dead
wood on me and say : 'He was afraid of
me. He would not meet me in London. 1
It is any place in America for Fitzsimmons
and any place in the world for Jackson.
That is my platform. I heard that Fitz
simmons had his money up, but this is the
first intimation I have had of trouDle for
the Florida club."

VIOLATION OF THE LAW.
The Civic Federation Proposes to
Prosecute the Com
The Civic Federation, which has been
reorganized, proposes to prosecute the
Market-street Railway Company for vio
lating the laws made for the protection of
life and limb. The federation held an ad
journed meeting yesterday afternoon in
assembly-room, Mills building, at which I.
J. Truman presided.
The committee on appointment of spe
cial committees to perform the work of the
federation as outlined in the plan adopted
at the previous meeting reported through
Rev. E. R. Dille the following names:
Civic feducation— H. N. Bevier, George T. Ga
den, M. 8. Woodhams, J. K. Jones.
Enforcement of laws— E. R. Dille, J. M. Rey
nolds, M. V. Samuels, C. O. Burton, Mrs. R. M.
Municipal affairs— l. J. Truman, Wallace

Stewart, M. P. Boynton.
Sanitation and public safety— J. Cumming
Bmith, Mrs. L. P. Williams, Dr. Hanson Irwin,
W. I. Kip.
Rev. Mr. Filben reported that the com
mittee to whom was referred the matter of
levying an assessment had decided that it
was impracticable to levy one at this time,
but suggested the appointment of a finance
committee to raise funds to carry on the
work of the federation.
The chair named the following as the
finance committee: E. R. Dille, C. C. Ter
rill, H. M. Bevier, J. Cumming Smith, D.
Gilbert Dexter, Thomas Filben, George T.
Gaden, M. P. Boynton and Chairman
Rev. Mr. Dille suggested that the feder
ation ought to issue a folder in which
should be set forth the objects of the asso
ciation, and that such a document would
be of much value when the tinance com
mittee called upon citizens for assistance.
Mr. Terrill said that the printing of these
folders would involve expense, and that
he was opposed to contracting any more
debt 3 until former obligations had been
Rev. Mr. Filben was of the opinion that
the cost of printing would be small, and as
it would be one method of raising means
to meet debts pending, it should be author
It was after some further discussion de
cided to print the folder of information,
and H. N. Bevier, George T. Gaden, M.
S. Woodhams and J. K. Jones were named
as a committee to prepare it.
John M. Reynolds, who was appointed
atra previous meeting to inquire into the
killing of persons by streetcars, reported
that he had made a careful study of the
subject. He then read order 2072, which
provides that all streetcars shall be pro
vided with fenders of a triangular shape,
and that such should not be more than
one and one-half inches above the track.
He said that he had visited the Board of
Supervisors and found that the pattern
used by the Market-street line was the one
generally approved. At Market and Third
streets he took the number and measure of
fenders of forty cars and found that not
one had a fender in compliance with the
He called on the Mayor and requested
him to have the ordinance enforced. He
also wrote a letter to the Mayor and one to
the Grand Jury on the subject. He at
tended the inquest over the body of Eugene
11. Langford, killed by an electric-car on
Kearny street, andjfurnished a list of ques
tions to ask of witnesses in order to estab
lish the fact that the cars did not have
In conclusion Mr. Reynolds said that the
motorman had been charged with man
slaughter and that he had asked the Grand
Jury that an indictment be presented
against H. E. Huntington, W. L. TVillcutt
and T. H. Vining of the railroad company
lor gross negligence in failing to provide
means on their cars to prevent life from
being crushed out of human beings. He
said that if the Grand Jury did not act
some one should take steps to have these
persons prosecuted. He gaid lie also asked
the Grand Jury to cite the Mayor and the
Chief of Police to explain why they did not
have the law about fenders enforced.
Mr. Reynolds' action was indorsed and
thfl report referred to the committee on
enforcement of laws with Dower to act. It
was further added that the committee
should push the matter with the utmost
Mr. Terrill said the federation should do
something to compel ihe authorities to
have the cars construct triangular fend
ers, as required by the ordinance.
Such, he said, would turn people who
might fall in front of a car to one side.
They might injure, but would not kill.
Chairman Truman said that he had been
snmmoned before the Grand Jury and ex
plained the danger of streetcars.
IN MEMORY OF FROEBEL.
Birthday of the Educational Reformer
Remembered by Pastor Steb
Frederick Froebel's birthday was remem
bered at the First Unitarian Church
Sunday morning. It was the one hundred
and thirteenth anniversary of the birth of
the great German apostle of the kinder
garten system, and* many ladies interested
in this method of education were in at
tendance. The occasion afforded the pastor,
Rev. Horatio Stebbins, an opportunity to
make an effective application of the lesson
of Froebel's life and work. He said:
Micbelet calls Froebel the greatest teacher of
children and the greatest reformer of teachers.
After a period of more than 100 years his in
fluence is beginning to be felt, destined never
to cease. Froebel's genius invented a series of
employments, wonderful, unique, simple, yet
based upon the fundamental principles of the
human mind, and his conception of education
is gradually permeating the air of common
When it wai proposed to introduce the plan
here a School Director said he di<l not want to
turn the school into a nursery. The prejudice
■was .«o greut in some quarters that it took a
pious turn and played an important part in n
mean church fuss. There is more religion in
Froebel'J" system than there is in some church
creeds. Froebel himself was a God-intoxicated
man and affirmed that all education was
founded in religion.
