tamed last Monday by the officers of the
water company at the reservoir in the
Santa Cruz Mountains. After lunch fish
ing tackle and boats were furnished and
the visitors enjoyed the finest black-baas
fishing to be bad on the coast. About
600 were taken, averaging from ten
to twelve inches in length. The res
ervoir covers about twenty acres and is
well stocked with black bass. It will not,
nowever, be lawful to catch bass until
July 1.
Trout fishing is now at its best and
good catches are made in nearly all the
streams. The trout caught are nearly all
of good size and but few fingerlings are in
the messes brought home by the anglers.
The SchuetzenVerein defeated the Union
RitW'^ Club last Sunday, averaging 6d]4 to
the latter club's 37V*. A match is being
arranged between the Schuetzcn Verein
and a team from Coroouy B.
The monthly medal shoot of the Gilroy
6portsmen's Protective Association was
held last Sunday and was well attended.
The medal was won by Ed Bannister, with
a score of nine out of twelve.
SACRAMENTO SPORTING.
Governor Budd Returns From a
Flshlner Trip— Gun and Wheel.
SACRAMENTO, Cal.. June 14. -The
young athletes of the Sacramento High
School will hold their annual rield day .-it
Agricultural Park, in this city, next Satur
day, and are in active training for the thir
teen events on the programme, as follows:
100-yard, 220 yard, 400-yard, half-mile and
Kile dashes, a 120-yard hurdle race, pole
vault, high jump and broad jump, twelve
tH'una hammer throw, s!steen-pound shot-put,
baseball throw and a two-mile bicycle race.
Among those who have entered is near
ly every member of the High School foot-
ball team, an organization of which all the
pupils are justly proud, as they have won
many laurels for the Capital City students.
In their last game, when in competition
with the athletes of the Stockton High
School, they suffered defeat, hiu the boys
claim that they played under disadvan
tages too great to overcome, three of their
best men having been sick, two of the line
thrown out on account of graduating, and
with but two days' practice they went
Bgainst a team that aside from all ob
stacles would make them play ball at any
time. They Bay that when the fall season
opens if granted a return game they will
make it far more interesting for their gal
lant competitors.
The members of the Sacramento Ath
letic Club Wheelmen made a run to Wal
nut Grove last Sunday. There was a very
large meet, and the run was greatly en
joyed.
A delegation from the club made a cen
tury run to Stockton and return, some of
them adding twenty miles to the century
by returning through Walnut Grove and
making the run home in company with
the other im-mbers of the club.
Owing to the increased interest in bi
cycling in this city the wheelmen have
c"al!<-d a meeting to "convene Monday night
for the purpose of reorganizing the Capitol :
City ■Wheeling Club. They intend to start
with a membership of 150 cyclists.
Grass Valley has aiso organized a bicycle
Club, with the promise of a lars-* member
ship. At a meeting held last Wednesday
evening the following officers were elected :
Thomas Ingraru, president; \V. E. Par-'
sons, vice-president; .T. C. Tyrrell, secre- \
tary-treasuirer; directors — M. T. Hubbard,
William Trmby, William Williams, R.
Wedlock, E. Mainhart and Arthur Fisher. \
A committee was appointed to select a
suitable name for the club and it is pro
posed to join the League of American
Wheelmen, as there are many advantages
connected with the league that can be ac
quired in no other way.
Governor Budd, who has been sojourn
ing for the past week at Klamath Hot
Springs, has been having famous sport i
among the trout of that region. Casting |
with his left band, the right having been '
crippled with rheumatism, his Excellency I
landed seventeen line rainbow trout, and i
on tbe 6th inst. he killed seventy-five fish j
with the fly.
Anglers from the locality of Truckee re- |
port the river full of sawdust, and the mat- I
ter will be investigated by the Fish Com- j
mission.
The Grass Valley Sportsman's Club will
hold its annual game stew on the 6th of
July. All the members will engage in a
dove hunt during the forenoon, and the
birds killed will be handled in good shape
by the club's chef. The feast will be en
joyed by club members and their invited
guests.
H. F. McCraney, department clerk of the
Supreme Court, has negotiated for a hunt
ing lodge midway between Bartlett and
Crabtree springs in Lake County. He has
just returned from that locality, and states
that people there report more deer in the
vicinity than was ever known .before, and
that the woods are literally alive with
young grouse and mountain qnail and the
streams well stocked with trout. In fact,
it is a veritable sportsman's paradise.
The Kimball and Upson bluerock tonr
uaraent, open to all comers, begins this
morning, but the principal events are re
served for to-morrow. The inducements
are far above the average, and will com
mand the meet of the season. Fifteen of
the leading shots of the bay clubs have
promised to be present, and the list of
clean scores will probably be numerous.
In the principal event, which will be a
match of twenty birds, for a shotgun,
there will be all of seventy-five entries.
This is tbe event of the season in this lo
cality, and Sacramento trap-shooters hope
to redeem the prestige they lost at Marys
ville, when the Ban Francisco boys
whipped them. Kutherfobd.
VISALIA SPORTING.
Streams That Have Been Stocked
With Trout and Bass.
VISALIA, Cal., June 13.— The Visalia
Sportsman Club are now reaping the bene
fit of their perseverance aml industry in
the matter of stocking the streams of
Tulare County with different O f
game fish. All of the stream? and br °oks
in the foothills and movmtai ns * re now
well stocked with Eastern b rO ok< Lake
Tahoe and salmon trout and the rivers of
the valley are stocked with blnck bass, the
result of the indefatigable industry of the
club.
On last. Saturday six members of the
clnb, inehidine J. Sieb Johnson, the secre
tary, and "W. T. Clotfelter, the attorney of
the clnb. went on a fishing expedition to
what is known as Pumpkin Hollow ranch,
near where the clubhouse is to be bnilt in
the near fntnre. There they found the
water yet pretty high, owinsr to the late
sprinjr.'br.t had "an enjoyable day's sport
withal. Thoujrh the wp.ry trout was not
particularly voracious, the party- succeeded
in landing ninety-two as fine a lot as any
one would wish to see.
This section of the country is bound to
be a paradise of sportsmen in a few years,
for the club has not confined its attention
to the streams: it is stocking: the woods
with choice came, so in a few years the
crack of the rifle and shotgun will be heard
as well as the click of the reel and the
swish of the angler's fly. The club believes
in the maxim, "Good sport, good citizens"
Last week a committee of the Visalia
| Fportpmcn's Clnb placed in the head
| waters of the Kaweah River some thou
: sands of trout spawn. In order to <\c this
I they had to cut through the ice. The dis
i tance as the crow flies is thirty-two miles
I from Visalia. In order to reach there they
, pasoed through a country where peaches
i and plums are ripening, next where lemon
j and orange trees are in bloom, again
\ thronsrh a decidious fruit country and
| finally into the snow. All this in Tulare
i County, all in one short day's travel. Can

Items regarding cycling matters i"n Vis
alia and vicinity appear in the wheelmen's
column.
At a recent meeting of the Visalia Sports
men's Club the members discussed plans
for the season. S. L. N". Ellis and J. O.
Thomas both volunteered to loan their
wagons and teams to transport fish to the
mountains.
Mr. Weaver has had two cans made by
Herbert Askin for the purpose of trans
porting fish on horses to the higher alti
tudes. The cans are nearly square but the
tops are wide, so as to conform to the shape
of a horse's back. These cans can be
packed on a horse safely over the mountain
trails to the streams "and lakes far back
into the mountains. They will be fre
quently used this summer.
Preparations are being made to stock a
number of streams with trout where they
do not now exist.
STOCKTON SPORTING.
Introducing the Tug-of-Wai — Train
ing for the July Regratta.
STOuKTON, June 14.— Great prepara
tions are being made here for athletic
events on the Fourth of July. The chief
interest just now centers in the tug-of
war contests in the pavilion on the evening
of July 3. There are eight teams entered
in the contest, and the prize will be hand
some silver trophies in the shape of cups
and urns, besides the prizes offered by
local clothing firms for advertising pur
poses.
The teams to contest are the American,
Danish, Scotch, Irish, German, Italian,
English and Canadian, and all are hard at
work training for the contest. The finals
will be pulled off at Goodwater Grove on
the afternoon of the Fourth when the
Stockton Athletic Association is to hold its
The following events have been decided
on for this occasion :
One hundred, 220 and 440 yard dashes; 120
--yard hurdle race; putting 16-pound shot;
throwing 16-pound hammer; running high
jump; running and standing broad jump; pole
vault; one mile bicycle race for novices; one
mile handicap for class A men; one mile hand
icap for class B men.
Gold medals will be given the winners of
each event, and silver medals to the men
taking second dace.
The men are busy training for the barge
races on the mornine of the Fourth. Of
the junior crew the Salbach Brothers are
the most likely oarsmen. In the senior
race Butler will give way to Hart at stroke
in order to enter the senior single-scnll
race. Butler is one of the best men on the
coast in a shell.
The new clubhouse of the Athletic Asso
ciation is completed now and will be ready
for occupancy as soon as the apparatus ar
i rives from the East.
BURNED BY TRAMPS
Revengeful Nomads Set Fire to South-
em Pacific Cars.
Two boxcars belonging to the Southern
Pacific were burned early last evening,
near Kentucky and Butte streets, Potrero.
The police have lately been making a raid
on a set of tramps that infest the Potrero,
and a few days ago they drove a dozen
men out of some boxcars that were (stand
ing idle. It is supposed that the work of
firing the two cars last night was done by
some of the tramp gang as a return for
being dislodged from their quarters.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1895.
THE BAY DISTRICT RACES
The Julia Martin Filly Startled
the Talent by Winning
at 50 to 1.
EDGEMOTJNT WON CLEVERLY.
Thelma, Overlooked, Proved Very
Much of a Surprise Party In
the Handicap.
Chevalier again carried o3 the riding honors
yesterday, landing two winners.
Johnny Coleman backed Hymn to win the
handicap for several hundred dollars.
A few Eastern bookmakers, satisfied with a
percentage, would help the game at the Bay
District materially. But nine firms cut in
yesterday.
Veragua's form In the two-year-old event
disappointed his backers very much, as ho had
won at the distance in the same time as yester
day's race was run in with more weight up.
He blew up badly after half the distance had
been (raversed.
While two of the thoroughbreds in James
Neil's string, Rey del Sol and a two-year-old
filly by Judge McKinstry, were being galloped
on First avenue yesterday morning they took
[ fright at something and getting beyond the
, control of their exercise boys started off in
! different directions on their own hook. The
! filly finally threw her rider, a young lad named
Jimmy Griffin, and for a time it was feared he
•was severely Injured, but, made of tough tim
ber,he was only severely bruised. The filly.quite
I a promising miss, cut and scraped herself
j badly, and will be thrown out of training for
some time.
Close and exciting finishes were in
abundance at the track yesterday, and the
nerves of the speculative fraternity under
went a very severe strain. With one ex
ception, every race was won in a hard
drive and the winner scored either by a
head or nose. It was another day of spicy
miscellaneous mixtures, all sorts of shots
scooting across the plate from an 8 to 5
favorite to a 50 to 1 outsider.
The long priced outsider managed to
eqneeze through in Ihe last race, a five and
a half furlong dash, for which Morven
went to the post a3to 5 favorite. Major
Cook was a decidedly strong second choice
in the ring, the other starters all being
quoted at long prices, a few straggling
dollars cutting the odds against the Julia
Martin filly from 50 to 40 to 1 nearing post
time.
Trouble was brewing for the favorites
from the outset, for when the flag sent
them away Crawford, a 12 to 1 shot, went
out with him and the two set a terrific
clip, bcine joined shortly by Major Cook.
As they disappeared from view in the hol
low the rare was in doubt, but as they
struck the short fiat stretch to the wire the
favorite was still in front. Only for an in
stant, however, for Major Cook and Craw
ford both passed him, being followed a sec
ond later by the Julia Martin filly. The
second choice and the two outsiders then
indulged in a battle royal to the wire, Mar
tin by good riding getting the Julia Martin
filly home first by a nose, with Crawford in
second place, the shortest of heads in front
of the Major.
The talent received a severe shaking up
in the six furlong handicap, which was
considered a good thing for Hymn, who
went to the post a 9to 5 favorite. Charmion
was almost as well thought of, 2 to 1 being
her closing odds. The price against Arnette
receded from 11 to sto 7to 2. Thelma's
last performance was such a poor one,
when she ran last all the way in a seven
furlong run on Monday, that she was not
very highly considered, although reported
to be in fine fettle. A few took advantage
of 1 his, getting as good as Bto 1 against
their money.
The start was not one of Havey's best,
Hymn and Rinfax getting the best of a
rather straggling go. Old Rinfax made a
great showing in front for something over
a furlong, when Thelma assumed the lead,
holding it throughout, the brown daughter
of John Happy passing the winning post
two lengths ahead of Charmion, who came
fast on the outside, beating Hymn out a
long neck for the place. The performance
was a very creditable one, the distance
being covered in I:l4J^.
A seven-farlong race opened the day's
sport, Normandieand Hanford clashing in
the betting for first choice honors, each at
13 to 5. Of the other starters, Don Caesar,
Tom Clarke and Jerome S received the most
support.
The issue finally simmered down to a
drive between Normanrtie, Jerome 8 and
Hanford, the first named beating the rather
injudiciously ridden Jerome S a nose on
the wire. Hanford, who stopped badjy
the last sixteenth, was a close third.
Six natty looking youngsters sported
silk in the two-year-old event at four and a
half furlongs, the Lone stable's representa
tive Edgemount having the call at post
time, backed down from 5 to 2 to 8 to 5.
He got away in the lead and was never
headed, winning by a length in a mild
drive from Zeta. Tiberius ran a greatly
improved race over the day preceding,
finishing third, but half a length away.
Old Hv Dy was a 2to 1 favorite for the
mile selling race, but he never got near
enough the front to look dangerous. Road
Runner was undoubtedly the best backed
horse in the race, but Shaw had one of his
bad turns— and that's sufficient. After the
field had passed the half Chevalier took
the lead with Sympat'.ietic's Last, a 10 to 1
chance, and through Shaw's bungling
finish on Road Runner, managed to win by
a neck. Hy Dy finished third, a couple of
lengths away. Mulhollaud.

CHESS BY TELEGRAPH.
Games Between Vancouver and San
Francisco Practically Decided in
Favor of the Local Teams.
The second international chess match
between two teams from the Mechanics'
Institute and two teams from the Van
couver Chess Clab was played last night
by telegraph, the players being in San
Francisco and Vancouver, B. C. Play
began at 6 :'6'6 o'clock.
The team representing the Mechanics'
Institute at board 1 had the first move
and opened with P-K4. Their opponents
in Vancouver adopted the French defense
by replying with P-K3. The local players
had a decided advantage after the first
eleven moves. The Vancouvers had a
hopeless game at 11:40 p. m.
Board No. 2 was an open game, the
British players having adopted the Scotch
gambit and did not recapture the pawn on
their fourth move, thus getting a quick
development, which, however did not rec
ompense for the loss of the pawn.
The local players had the best game
after Vancouver's seventh move. At 11:40
p. m. the Britishers had a lost game.

WINS BY NINE LENGTHS
Cornell Defeats Pennsylvania
in the Two-Mile Boat
race.
QUAKERS ARE FAR OUTCLASSED
Freshmen Put Up an Interesting
Rowing Contest on Cayuga
Lake.
ITHACA, N. V., June 14.— The first an
nual race between the freshmen eights of
Cornell and the University of Pennsyl
vania was rowed this afternoon at Cayuga
Lake over the two-mile course, and Cor
nell won by nine lengths in 11 minutes
18 3-5 seconds.
With the exception of a few light show
ers in the fore part of the afternoon, which
quieted the waves, the day was perfect.
The attendance was 6500.
The race was started promptly at 6:10
o'clock, Pennsylvania takiug the water
first. Cornell rowed 44 strokes and Penn
sylvania 38. The Pennsylvanians did a
great deal more splashing than Cornell,
and Cornell's machinery now in motion
soon commenced to tell.
The rowing of Pennsylvania was very
ragged during the second half mile, the
men being all doubled up. Cornell passed
the mile point a full two lengths ahead.
Pennsylvania now commenced to row
steadier, but Cornell had the stroke at 42
to Pennsylvania 36. At the mile and a
half Cornell had increased her advantage
to five lengths ahead, while her stroke had
been increased to 46. Cornell finished in
magnificent style, each man working with
accuracy and with a stroke of 46, a full
nine lengths ahead of the Quakers. Penn
sylvania crossed the line 32 seconds later.
FOR GET-AWAY DAT.
Starter*, Weight* and Jockeys in the
Suburban Handicap.
NEW YORK, N.Y., June 14.—T0-mor
row will be Get-away day of the Coney Isl
and Jockey Club's opening meeting and
the attraction , on the programme will be
the historic Suburban, the greatest equine
event of the racing year. The Suburban
this year is of less value than ever before.
This was made necessary by uncertainty
! that surrounded the race when the stake
was offered. However, the horse-owner
does not value the suburban for its money.
It is the honor of winning this great han
dicap that is coveted.
Following are the entries, weights and
probable jockeys: Sir Walter, 126, Doggett;
Domino, 123, Taral; Rubicon, 119, W.
Midgley ; Lazzarone, 115, 1. Murphy; Sister
Mary, 115, Hamilton; Declare, 108, J.
Lamley; Song and Dance, 99, Griffin.
The withdrawal of Rarnapo has been a
great factor in the interest in the race. In
the seven entries three are confessedly out
only for second or third money.
Song and Dance is the lightweight of the
party, having to take up but 99 pounds,
although with Griffin in his saddle he will
have to carry several pounds over weight.
Declare was only decided upon as a starter
after Ramapo had been scratched, Mr.
Dwyer thinking that he had a fair chance
to be third at least, and if the track should
happen to be wet there is no telling where
he might land. Rubicon has not shown
his ability to go the distance thus far, and
McDonald has hopes of one of the places
after the winner.
Sister Mary is a most erratic performer,
and so far in the East has not shown that
she belongs in the class with the others.
This leaves Sir Walter, Domino and
Lazzarone as the most likely contenders.
Sir Walter is the top weight, but he has
time and time again shown his ability to
carry weight and win in fast company
over the distance. He is one of the gamest
horses that ever looked tnrough a bridle,
and can be depended upon to exert every
ounce of strength before he gives up.
Lazzarone was the second horse in the
Brooklyn handicap and takes up 115
pounds. This is two more pounds than he
carried then, and it should not make any
difference to him. He was a disappoint
ment to his owner after that race, for he
ran twice and was nowhere. Since then
he has had a rest and may do better, but
he was always an uncertain beast. If
Isaac Murphy will only ride with as good
judgment as he did in the Brooklyn handi
cap Lazzarone is by no means out of the
race, for he, too, can go the distance.
Domino is the other and the odds on
favorite. He has to take up 123 pounds,
with Taral on his back. According to his
work he looks to be a sure winner and few
of the trainers at the track are willing to
concede his defeat. The few who have
pinned their faith to Sir Walter and Laz
zarone declare Domino is nothing but a
sprinter. Mr. Keene seems sure his horse
will win and the trainer, William Lake
land, will not allow any talk of defeat on
Domino. Domino has raced but three
times in his life at over a mile and did not
cover himself with glory either time.
Domino is in a tight box. for if he sets a
hot pace he will have Sir Walter and Laz
zarone to contend with at the end, and if
it is a slow pace the Rubicon may give him
trouble.
CJRIPPZSD, BUT TERT GAME.
California Athletes Determined to
Bravely Battle With Chicago.
CHICAGO, 111., June 14.— With the ex
ception of their Pennsylvania games the
Berkeley boys have never dreaded any
meet so much as that with the Chicago
Athletic Association to-morrow. Not that
the boys fear their opponents — they have
too much California pluck for that — but
Dozier and Bradley are crippled, and the
Californians fear that they cannot over
come the handicap occasioned by thus
leaving no Intry in the bicycle race and
mile run. Crum is expected to win both
sprints for Chicago. Scogginshas an even
time opponent for second-place honors in
W. C. Skillinger.
Kenneth McCrea, the gTeat Australian,
is pitted against Koch in the half and
quarter. Allowing that he is in form, it is
believed that Koch can defeat him, even if
he makes record-breaking time. After
running the half both men Btart in the
quarter. The Chicago Athletic Associa
tion banks on Jackson to win here, but
California with Barnes and Koch must
score one-two to make a winning total of
points. Chicago will take all the points in
the mile run and the cycle race. Torrey
and Dyer in return must win first and sec
ond in both hurdle races. Crum will start
against them in the low hurdles, but what
will he do? Merwin has a lame back, but
still be must win the walk from the old
time champion, Hassell.
Chicago expects both places in the high
jump with Clark and Hess. Clark is good
for six feet, Hess a little less. Woolsey
must best Tarrant in the broad jump, that
probably means twenty -two foot jumping.
Riddle of Chicago will take the shot and
hustle Edgren at the hammer throw.
FOREMAN CHARLES ROLFE
Superintendent of One of the Biggest
Composing Rooms in America,
Up in the top story of the Globe building,
where the typesetting and other machines
do everything but talk, says the Boston
Globe, there is a pleasant-faced, clear
skinned, light-complexioned man of 52,
who has been with the Globe ever since
the birthday of that great paper. He is
the night foreman of the composing-room
and looks fully fifteen years younger than
he really is. His name is Mr. Charles
Rolfe.
Nervous headaches that well-nigh drove
him to distraction first introduced him to
Paine's celery compound. That was five
years ago, and until that time he was one
of the most pronounced opponents of pre-
pared remedies to be found in the city.
Just how Paine's celery compound was
first brought to his attention he does not
remember, but it has done him so much
good that the compound has no more en-
thusiastic champion living. He is as
happy as any one in the enjoyment of
good health could be, and for that happi-
ness he gives full credit to Paine's celery
compound. Read what he has to say about
the medicine :
"I am always ready to recommend
Paine's celery compound when I hear of a
case similar to my own. Some five years
ago I was suffering from headaches which
were sometimes so severe during working
hours of the night that I would clasp my
hands over my head to -hold the top on,'
the pain being excruciatinc These at-
tacks would occur sometimes as often as
three times a week. Sleep was out of the
question, the pillow seeming but a block
of wood.
"Just at the time I was suffering most I
bought a bottle of Paine's celery com-
pound, began at once to take it, and before
a week had passed the headaches began to
Edgren expects to break his record. Harry
Cornish, the gentlemanly manager of the
C. A. A., has thrown out the pole vault,
and is almost willing to do the same with
the cycle race, but California asks no favors.
If beaten to-morrow the men will be car
ried from the finish with "our shields
upon them" as their motto. Hess, Skil
linger and Kossiter of the C. A. A., may be
protested on account of reported disquali
fication by the A. A. U. The Californians
realize their crippled state, and that a team
of men picked from New York to Mel
bourne is opposed to them. Still they will
do their best and never say die.

Syracuse.
SYRACUSE, N. V., June 14.— With one
world's record broken and the track very
fact, rain put an end to the bicycle racing
here to-day. The downpour lasted for half

They Ask That France Does JVof Partici
pate in the Kiel Celebration.
PARIS, France, June 14.— The League
of Patriots continues to organize meetings
of protest against the participation of
France in the approaching celebrations at
disappear. I felt almost a new man before
the bottle was empty. I purchased more,
and for two years kept it in the house for
use whenever I felt a return of the old
pains. It never failed in giving me relief.
The other members of my family also be-
gan to take it— my wife for a feeling of
general weakness, she being at that time
much 'run down 1 and never feeling well
enough to perform the work of the home.
Within a week she was, as she expressed
it. 'as well as ever in her life,' and similar
reports came from ail our friends to whom
we had recommended it.
"I feel confident that in nervons head-
aches and a 'run down' system the com-
pound will be beneficial every time, if not
a perfect cure.
"In some instances we have not only
recommended it, bnt furnished it to very
aged friends, and the effect of one bottle
has seemed marvelous, one particular old
friend of mine telling me that bpfore one
bottle had been used he 'felt at least ten
years younger, and certainly had not felt
as good for ten years.'
"During the last five years I have nsed a
trreat many bottles of the compound — that
is, in my home. lam positive that it is a
sure cure for nervous headaches and a
broken-down feeling, especially in the case
of elderly persons.
"There is one case in particular I call to
mind in which Paine's celery compound
asserted its good qualities. We nad a
youn<; married lady friend, who was nurs-
ing her four-months-old child, and found
that she could not perform her household
duties on account of the weak condition
she seemed always to be in. On the recom-
mendation of my wife and myself she took
one bottle of the compound, and before
two weeks had passed was able to do her
own washing even, in addition to house-
work. About three bottles were used. I
have yet to hear from any friend to whom
I recommended it other than the most
favorable results."

the Baltic North Sea canal. Placards will

Abbott and Burke Fight.
MONTREAL, Quebec, June 14.— Stanton
Abbott, champion lightweight of England,
and Jack Burke, champion lightweight of
the Southern States, met to-night in th«
Crystal Rink for $2.50 a side. The agree
ment was that if both men were standing
at the end of the fifteenth round the fight
would be declared a draw. McCoy acted
as referee. The fight was a hot one
throughout, and both men were up at the
end of the battle, and the contest was de
clared a draw. Neither could be said to
have obtained the advantage at any stage.
Champion at Tennis.
ORANGE, N. J., June 14.— John How
land, the New England champion tennis
player, won the Middle States tournament
on the Orange Lawn Tennis Club grounds
at Montrose after five stubbornly contested
sets with Richard Stevens, the Hoboken
expert, and will play with A. Lamed to
morrow afternoon for the championship
and a $150 trophy. The score by which
Howland won was: 5—7,4—8,6—2,2—6,

son. Phoebe Wilkes won the race, how
ever, taking the second, third and fourth
heats in 2:14^, 2:12% and 2:17?£. Ken
tucky Union, Senator A and Robbie P also
started.
Light of the West Is Dead.
MACON, 111., June 14.— Knowles' Light
of the West, an imported stallion, valued
at $10,000. owned by Burgess brothers, died
to-day. The horse took first premium at
the World's Fair. It was one of the best
known draft stallions in America, having
been on exhibition in every horse show
since 1890.
The Fight Postponed.
NEW YORK, N. V., June 14.—Match
maker Jim Kennedy of the Seaside Ath
letic Club announced the fight between
George Dixon and Frank Erne, scheduled
for to-night, has been indefinitely post
poned. This is evidently deemed the
wiser plan, seeing that Judge Gaynor will
not render a decision in the mandamus
proceedings until to-morrow.
Worh of the Tale and Harvard Crewt.
GALESFERRY, Coirc., June 14.— The
work of the past few days has been severe

is improving steadily and to-day went over
the four- mile course with a vim.
