Oeorge Rose, the bookmaker, will leave for
Chicago about the 15th of the present month.
But for Captain Kees' bad habit of bearing in
toward the rail, the finish between him and Rey
Alfonso would have been much closer.
After getting two lengths the best of the
start with Xellie G in the third race, and lead
ing into the stretch by six lengths, Shaw gave
a most realistic exhibition of how a race can
be thrown away, and was beaten out half a
Jockey L. Lloyd is having; more than hie share
or ill-fortune of late. Only a few days ago he
was thrown while working out a horse and
badly bruised, and yesterday ho again received
a painful injury. After pulling up Major Cook,
which he had ridden in the second race, he was
returning to the judges' stand on a jog when the
Major suddenly bolted in toward the rail. One
of Lloyd's feet caught between two of the pick
ets, with the result that he received a badly
sprained foot that will keep him on crutches
for some time.
The rickety racing of late has had a very
perceptible effect on the attendance at the
Bay District, for while a very fair card was
offered to race - goers yesterday, the
scantiness of the crowd was marked both
in the betting ring and balconies. Another
very necessary adjunct to a racetrack of
which there is a most noticeable scarcity is
coin. Men with information are plentiful,
but with the "necessary"-~wanting.
But two out of five favorites won and
thepencilers had the best of the debate.
A mild kick was registered in the first
race by the talent, Starter Merrell drop
ping his flag with the heavily backed Sir
Reel, with Weber up. standing at the post.
Rey Alfonso buoyed up the spirits of his
doubting admirers by again showing some
of his old-time speed in the last race of the
day, at six and a half furlongs. The field
pitted against him was a good one, com
prising Captain Rees, who.went to the post
a 7 to 10 favorite, Charmion and Howard.
The speedy son of Prince of Norfolk always
bad threes about him in the ring.
Suiting his style, Chevalier skimmed to
the front with Rey Alfonso when the flag
fell, soon opening' up a gap of four lengths,
with Howard in hot pursuit. As they
turned into the stretch it looked for a
moment as though Howard would catch
him, but he shortly after gave it up, and
Weber began in earnest on the favorite.
Although catching the flying leader fast,
Captain Rees' bad habit of swerving in j
operated against him and he was beaten i
out three parts of a length. Charmion was
an ordinary third. The race was a fast
one, the official time marking 1:20*4.
The opening dash, at five and a half fur
longs, ended most disastrously for the
talent. The sulking Cancel won in a drive
from Normandie, the second choice, with
12 to 1 against him. America, the 9 to 5 i

EDWARDS' NEW RECORD.
He Clip* Two-Fifths of a Second From
the Five-Mile Road
One more record has been added to
credit of the red and white of the Olympic
Club, for in a magnificent race against
time Sunday J. E. Edwards clipped two
fifths of a second from the record for five
miles on the road, made a few Sundays
ago by Byrnes of the Imperial Cycling
Club of this City. Byrnes' time was
12:13 2-5, Edwards' time yesterday was
In the race the Olympic man was paced
by two tapdems. On that which ran the
first two and a half miles Fuller and Lem
mon pedaled for dear life. There was
some hitch in the start, the tandem not
starting successfully, and while it hesi
tated Edwards was let go. He shot by the
tandem like the wind, and in a moment
Fuller and Lemruqn dug after hhn as fast
as they could drive the machine, but the
run had been passed before they took their
place just ahead of the record-breaker-
Hale and Hobsou made the pace for the
latter half of the five miles, and they gave
a good one, but in spite of their speed Ed
wards passed them in a finishing spurt,
and crossed the line a couple of lengths
Edwards' performance established a new
Coast record for the five-mile road run.
His race was, with the exception of the
pacing, run under favorable circumstances,
for the road was in excellent condition and
the wind was not an adverse one. The
judges were J. W. Coffroth and W. E.
Unger. The timers were G. L. Badger, A.
Montealegre and G. H. Stratton. The
course was tlie same over which Byrnes
ran — from San Mateo to San Carlos.
A CHANGEABLE BULLSEYE
Dr. Riehl Says That It Is Not
Always Where It Seems
If the Theorist Is Correct Sharp
shooters Must Change Their
Every marksman in this vicinity, and
there are thousands of them, will pay more
than passing attention to a new theory re
cently advanced by S. Riehl, a noted
hydropath and champion long-distance
swimmer of the Pacific Coast, himself an
expert on the rifle range. In fact not only
to local marksmen will it come as a sur
prise, not to say a shock, but it will cer
tainly engage the attention of target shots
the world over once the doctor has con
cluded his researches and given them to
the world, as he intends to do.
To begin with it upsets all the heretofore
accepted ideas as to the location of the
bullseye. The doctor holds that, for a
short period of the day only, the bullseye
is in the place it seems to be, and that
a marksman drawing a dead bead at any
other period of the day on what he thinks
is the desired black spot will hit outside
No one must think from this that the
coveted bullseye changes its spots like the
leopard or the beautiful chameleon. Not
a bit of it. The bnllßeye remains fixed
surely enough, but the refraction of the
rays of the sun at the different periods of
the day operates so as to cause a simple
optical illusion, which causes the marks
man to imagine that the bullseye is where
it is not.
This is rather rough on some of the
crack shots of the country, who have been
knocking out bullseyes for these many
years at all hours of the day and in all
j sorts of weather. Naturally they will
i maintain that the bullseye is all right and
! that all this talk of optical illusion is mere
! fanciful bosh. They will stoutly hold that
I every center they have scored is theirs by
j right of superior skill and steady aim, Dr.
I Riehl's new theory to the contrary not-
I withstanding. This will leave the burden
I of proof upon the doctor, and to support
his theory he must amplify it until not a
shadow of doubt is left.
As near as can be ascertained, for Dr.
Riehl guards his pet theory with jealous
care, he fixes that hour of the day when
the sun is at its zenith as the only proper
time to hit the center without a wobble or
fluke. At that time, and that time only,
can the shot with a steady hand and a true
eye send his bullet to the black spot in the
desert of target. At all other times the
best shots must lose, and only those made
unsteadily can hope to hit the mark—acci
dentally, of course.
In a general way, the theory has it, the
refraction of the rays of the sun is greatest
as they penetrate the longest distance
through the atmosphere. This is good
physics, and so far the doctor's idea is
bound to hold good. At the first peep of
the sun and at its final dip into the west
ern sea, the rays would have to travel
through a greater length of earth's atmos
phere than at any other period of the day,
the refraction becoming Jess and less
.marked until the light-giving body is at
its zenith, when there would be least, or
practically none at all.
Then as the earth turned and the sun
descended to the west the rays would be
refracted in such a way as to form the
illusion which Dr. Riehl contends must
necessarily interfere with the aim of the
That is the entire theory, as far as de
veloped, and Dr. . Riehl is prepared to
prove it shortly to the satisfaction cf the
most credulous marksman or the greatest
scientist. He has shot marvelously well
for centers and his sons after him, and has
studied the art of plugging the bullseye
very assiduously. . His theory, therefore,
is worthy of more than passing considera
tion, and may ultimately lead to v changes
in rifle-sighting tended to set off the inter
ference of the atmosphere with the rays of
the sun. " . > '

knowing the reason why his greens were

Blingum wore a look of disgust on his
sun-tanned features as he feasted his eyes
on the mule, which was loaded with vege

then that his prospect for further argu

On last Saturday evening Wong Fow de

Of course the Chinaman noticed the dis

The monthly meeting of the Olympic

matters of importance will be transacted.
The organization of a trap-shooters' asso

are requested to carry lanterns and bells on
their wheels. The next meeting of the
club will be held on the 6th inst.
Superintendent Kennedy of the Olympic
Club has received information from Her
man Oelrichs that if successful in his
scheme to induce six or eight of the cham
pion amateur boxers of the Eastern ath
letic clubs to visit this City in A ugust next,
the members of the Olympic Club will be
treated to a great feast of fisticuffs. Mr.
Oelrichs is perfectly willing to defray the
expenses of the Eastern men to and from
this coast provided that he can get the
cream of the Eastern amateur boxers to
consent to a trip of this kind. The boxers
of the Olympic Club are of the opinion
that Mr. Oelrichs will fail in his negotia
tions with the Eastern men because the
latter are already well posted in the excel
lent boxing abilities of the Westerners, and
rather than suffer an ignominous defeat,
theywill politely decline Mr. Oelrichs' kind
offer to eoWest and get a whipping. How
ever, if half a dozen good amateur boxers
representing New York should visit this
City, the sport of fisticuffs would receive a
great impetus. The handful of amateur
athletes California sent East surprised
those who thought that the West was still
in the silurian age.
ALL OBSTACLES REMOVED.
Jim Corbett and Fitzsimmon* May I)o
NEW YORK, N. V., June 4.-The fight
between Corbett and Fitzsimmons is now
an assured fact. All the obstacles have
been removed. Joe Vendig, the repre
sentative of the Florida Athletic Club, said
to-night: "The money. $7000, was handed
to the temporary stakeholder, Phil Dwyer,
to-day. There is absolutely no chance for
a kick-up this time, artd I am ready to
wager any amount at odds of 10 to 1 that
the principals enter the ring, and I am sure
there will be a fight worth looking at, not
only from a scientific point, but one that
will decide championship of the world."
Corbett is said to be going to work at As
bury Park in preparing for the mill, but
Fitzsimmons says he will train close to the
battle gronnd, possibly at Galveston. The
former has the call among the sporting
fraternity, his chances of winning being
looked upon as the most likely by the bet
ting men here.
DALLAS, Tex., June 4.— E. H. R. Green,
president of the Texas Midland Railroad,
and J. S. Grinnan, president of the Board
of Trade, both of Terrel, Tex., thirty miles
east of Dallas, telegraphed Corbett to-day
offering training grounds and every con
venience he wants. They ask Corbett to
offer suggestions as to what he needs for
himself and trainers.
The first big bet recorded to-day on the
fight makes the odds 3 to 2 on Corbett.

FERRY SALOON LOOTED
Over $1200 in Cash and Stock
Valued at $1 0,000
NO TRACE OF THE THIEVES.
The Crime Committed Late Sunday
Night or Early Monday
One of the most daring burglaries ever
perpetrated in San Francisco took place
Sunday night or early Monday morning.
At some hour during the time named the
Ferry saloon was entered and robbed of
money and valuables to the amount of
When Teddy Osborne, whose duty it is
to open the saloon, arrived at his place of
business Monday morning he was aston
ished to find the rear door open, though
for the moment the idea of thieves having
been in the place did not occur to him. A
few moments' investigation, however,
showed conclusively that the place
had been entered and robbed, though
the extent of the loss was not
fully known until yesterday morn
ing. At that time the proprietor,
Ed Hirschley, who was away on a visit,
returned and" the loss was approximately
estimated. The two cash registers in the
saloon had been broken open, as well as
the one in the wholesale department, and
the contents of the drawers, amounting to
several hundred dollars, taken. In ad
dition to thi3 the safe had been opened
and every dollar as well as 110,000 in stock
and a lot of jewelry were stolen. In the
safe was a check for $175, indorsed, but the
midnight marauders evidently did not care
to take any chances, for this valuable
paper was undisturbed.
There is a hallway leading back to Sac
ramento street, and it is supposed that the
robber concealed himself in a lot of saw
dust contained in one of the vacant rooms,
committing the crime at an hour when he
was least likely to be disturbed.
Mr. Hirschley, the proprietor, left the
City Sunday morning for a brief jaunt in
the country, and the first intimation he
had of the robbery was the receipt of a
telegram from OsDorne announcing the
fact. He hurried to the City at once, and
placed the mattar in the hands of the de
tectives. So far they have been unable to
find any trace of the thieves, though they
are keeping a sharp lookout on several
persons who are known to be familiar with
the place. _^_^___^^^^___

MISTAKES COMMON TO M AMY. '
Blunders Which. Often Remit Seriously
Should Be Avoided In Time.
Many people are of the opinion (and wrongly)*
that whenever they do nnto t feel well they should!
physic themselves with pills, powders or purga*
tives. This constant dosing of one's self witH
physic is all wrong, as the effect . of this treat*
merit is to weaken the natural digestive forced
which, nature has given us, and this results in
the awful chain of maladies which successful!*
attack the weak. Thousands to-day linger an<4
suffer through ignorance of the proper mode of
treating the ills which affect them through]
fatigue, overwork or indigestion." Peruvian
Bitters are the proper thing to use to tone un
and invigorate the system, and to enliven all
the functions of the body. Peruvian Bitters
are not a physic, but a pleasant and invigor*
atlng drink, made of the very finest California
Brandy, blended with aromatic and medicinal
herbs and roots, and particularly the almost
sacred Peruvian Bark, so celebrated the worlcj
over for its tonic and anti-malarial properties,
Peruvian Bitters enable the system to ward oftl
the attacks of colds, coughs and similar dis«
eases, and if you are weak and shaky from %
former attack" of the above diseases, Peruvian*
Bitters will make you strong again. Appetizers
are beneficial to the tired, overworked or weak;
and Peruvian Bitters are a perfect tonic, bette^
than whisky or similar stimulants. Beautiful^
clear complexions are desired by all, and Pern*
Vian Bitters will create complexions of beauta
by restoring vigorous action of the function! of
the body. Try It and be convinced. Mack 4j
