Ordination of Frank E. Hinck
ley, the Chicago Reporter-
REV. MR. GUNSAULUS' SERMON
Mrs. Aram No Longer a Deputy
Sheriff— Orator Rosenberg's
Rev. Frank E. Hinckley, preacher and
ex-reporter, was ordained at the Second
Congregational Church, West Oakland,
yesterday afternoon with great ceremony,
Frank W. Gunsaulus, the great Chicago
divine, preaching the ordination sermon
and welcoming the young man into the
ranks of Congregational clergymen.
Mr. Hinckley was a pupil under Dr.
Gunsaulua in Chicago, after he gave up his
position as newsgatherer on the News to
devote his life to the ministry, and the
training he had received from the well
known preacher was nearly if not all his
fitting for the pulpit.
The ordination was quite an event in
clerical circles in view of the prominence
of Hincktej's sponsors and of the severe
and unusual ordeal he had been compelled
to undergo to gain hi* title of reverend.
In addition to the sermon preached by
Rev. Gunsaulns Rev. J. K. McLean, presi
dent ol the Pacific Theological Seminary,
Rev. J. B. Orrof Benicia and Rev. Frank
H. Fosten fie Theological Semi
nary took part in the ordination services.
Olive Reed Bachelder and Miss Louise
ott furnished the vocal music in a
manner befitting the occasion.
Rev. Mr. Gunsaulus took his text from
Paul's letter to the Hebrews, in which he
pays: "He endured as seeing him who
is" invisible." This reference to Moses,
whom Rev. Gunsaulus rated as the great
eat preacher the world had ever produced,
he applied to the preachers of to-day,
claiming that unless they saw the invisi
ble and had the true inspiration of God
they would not endure in their calling.
"The preacher," be Baid, "need not be
an orator noryei • of great bril
liancy to be successful in k-ading his con
gregation in the path of the Christian
■What he must have is the light of divine
inspiration, and through that only can he
expect to endure and carry on the work to
which be has consecrated his life. Brains
and hard work will not aid him much
unless he has the assistance of God a pres
ence. Too many ministers are prone to
speak and think of God's greatness as a
thins of the past, and forget that God said
lam that 1 am. The present is the
thing, and the man who believes that the
golden age of God's greatness is past, is
lost. When a minister can realize the
divine force which was, is and always will
be, he is all right. Ministers find it hard
to lead crowds as they would desire to lead
ttieni. They cannot please all, and they
find that some of their hearers are un
sympathetic and cynical. They are asked
to explain away facts that appear to some
to controvert the Scriptures. The success
ful minister must withstand these so-called
facts and believe in the inspiration of the
Scriptures. In a word, he must see the
invisible and be guided by it. "
The preacher then called Hinckley to
the pulpit and congratulated him on his
BUCcess in reaching the title of reverend,
and urged him to look ever upward and
onward, asking God' for strength at all
times. After Rev. J. K. McLean had de
livered the ordination prayer, the ceremony
of receiving Dr. Hinckley into the church
was performed. The church was filled to
its utmost extent with the congregation
and friends of Dr. Hinckley.
Water Company's Supply.
The following open letter is self-explan
Hit Patroni>: This is to thank the people
of Oakland for the consideration bo generously
extended to the Oakland Water Company upon
the occasion of the lack of water supply to
many of Its patrons fora few hours yesterday.
Owing to a hidden defect in the casting of the
massive "T" in use at Twenty-«econd avenue
and East Fourteenth street, and at the place
■where our 30-inch main divides into two
20-inch mains a serious break occurred early
Friday morning, which compelled the re-cast
ing of a new flange and the subsequent
emptying of millions of gallons of water, to
replace the broken connection. While the
water waa temporarily tamed off it was
deemed advisable to permit the house-holders
to suffer rather thßn to exhaust water which
might be needed i^r use in the. event of tire,
hence the inconvenience which our patrons
underwent yesterday. The work of repairing
was i>egun and finished a> Boon as possible, and
if human Ingenuity can devise v means strong
enough no break. 01 this kind will occur at this.
Hoping that this explanation will suffice fur
the unfortunate accident, and that our patrons
will besr witii us in « matter for which no one
was to blame, 1 am, on behalf of the Oakland
Water Company, yours sincerely,
\\ ii.i.iAM J. Dingee, President.

A Sermon on the Subject by Presi-
dent Blair of the Reorgan
W. W. Blair, one of the three presi
dents of the Reorganized Mormon Church,
delivered a sermon at Red Men's Hall last
evening to a gathering of the local follow
ers of Joseph Smith, who presides over the
reorganized body. President Blair recently
arrived from Lamona, lowa, and has as
sumed charge of the mission work in Cali
fornia and Nevada. Mr. Blair's subject
was "Inspiration." He said:
"We believe that a measure of inspira
tion is extended to all mankind and abides
with them until they reach a condition of
total moral depravity. We disallow moral
depravity in the child and that it is the
result of transgression of the law. We
hold that there are different degrees of in
spiration. Columbus, fur example, was in
spired of God in his work of discovery.
"The framers of the Declaration of Inde
pendence and of the constitution were
also inspired for their work. All of the
development in the art and sciences that
bless and embellish society are the work
of inspiration. Every pood that is ac
complished, whether by Pagan, Pharisee,
Jew or Christian is a result of divine in
spiration either direct or remote. The
gospel in its fullness lias been restored in
this dispensation in fulfillment of Bible
prophecies and, therefore, we claim that
people who receive the gospel and live in
faithful harmony with its provisions will
enjoy and do enjoy measures of the ex
traordinary manifestation of the inspira
tion of Goa. This is the foundation upon
which all churches and peoples may build
and attain the one faith, one hope, one
baptism and one body, being governed
and taught by the one "spirit."
SUNRISE ON TAMALPAIS
Three Hundred People
Climbed to the Summit in
Members of the Cross-Country Club
and Their Friends Enjoy
Three hundred enthusiastic pedestrians,
members of the Cross-Country Club and
their friends, made the ascent of Mount
Tamalpaia in a body before sunrise yester
day morning. The most of them left this
City on the Sausalito ferry-boat San Rafael
at 11:30 o'clock Saturday night.
The party divided into two sections, one
to make the ascent by way of Larkspur
over the new trail and the latter from Ross
station. There were fully 130 people in the
latter party, and they wended their way
through Ross Valley, headed by the mem
bers of the Cross Country Club. Each was
equipped with a lighted Japanese lantern.
The start was made at 12:45 a. m., and the
procession soon stretched out over a dis
tance of a mile, and the lights which
dotted the side of the mountain gave it a
most picturesque appearance. It is doubt
ful if such a sight was ever witnessed in
The night was simply perfect. It was
like a regular old-fashioned Indian sum
mer's night, about which New Englanders
boast exist nowhere else on earth. A
gentle breeze came in from the ocean and
fanned the perspiring brows of the climb
ers. The moon shone with a brightness
that lighted up the landscape to such an
extent that the distant peaks of old Diablo
and St. Helena were as plainly visible as
on a clear day, while the young forest
trees on the sloping hills stood out against
high backgrounds of grass-covered hills
with a vividness which was remarkable.
The lights of San Quentin glittered on the
placid waters of the bay which intervened,
and early arrivals at the summit picked
out the lights that warn Mariners of the
dangerous approaches to the harbor, while
San Francisco slumbered in somber hues
on the big peninsula. All in all, it was a
combination of views long to be remem
The front ranks of the procession pushed
on to the summit, reaching there an hour
before sunrise only to find that the Lark
spur party had got there before them with
an additional contingent, numbering
about a hundred persons of both sexes',
who had gone up from Mills Valley,
many of them being Cross Country Ckib
members ami their friends who preferred
the shorter climb. Before Old Sol peeped
above the Eastern horizon the most of the
climbers had reached the summit, where
the Beveral peaks of the mountains, cov
ered as they never were before by nearly
300 persons, presented a most striking
scene, and as the great red mass that rules
the day jumped, as it appeared, out of the
very earth an exultant huzzar went up
which awakened thousands of echoes in
the canyon below.
After this important event the visitors
divided into little groups in proximity to
the spring in the cluster of trees on the
northern slope of the mountains just be
low the summit, and ravenous appetites
quickly disposed of the contents of the
lunch-baskets, after which the people be
gan the return.
WIDBER'S BOND IS SMALL
Mayor Sutro Will Advise That
It Be Increased to
He Thinks the Values of the Estates
of Morse and Lees In
Mayor Sutro says that he does not object
to Treasurer Widber's bondsmen because
of any legal points. He fears their suffi
ciency from a business point of view.
"I have no doubt as to the honesty of
any of the men on Mr. Widber's bond,"
said the Mayor last night. "Neither do I
think any one could honestly question the
integrity of our Treasurer. But we must
consider that he has $2,000,C00 in cash
under his control.
"Now, the property of Mr. Morpe and of
Mr. Lees, who are on Mr. Widber's bond,
is real estate whose value cannot be defi
nitely fixed. Some of it is country prop
erty, and no dealer in lands could tell what
it will bring if it were put on the market.
"If either of these men were to die and
their estate should be called upon for the
payment of a shortage, it is hard to say
how much either would be able to bring
forward in cash. These men are good, but
their property is of such a nature that I
am not, as a business man, in favor of ac
cepting them as sufficient.
"The bond is too small as it is. But
with that I have nothing to do. The
Supervisors fix the amount of the bond.
It rests with me, though, to decide upon
the sufficiency of the bondsmen and, lay
ing all sentiment and personal feeling
aside, and looking at the matter from a
dispassionate, business point of view, I
would wish men whose property is more
greatly in excess of the amount "that may
"To-morrow," he continued, "I am going
to suggest to the Supervisors that the
amount of the bond be raised to $200,000.
This will make the matter of sureties
simpler. Whether they will uccept my
proposition or not, I have no means of

AN OAKLAND BOY SHOT.
Everett Spencer Is Fatally
Wounded by Deputy
A BULLET IN HIS SPINE.
The Youth's Companions Say the
Shooting Was Without Provo
Everett Spencer, an 18-year-old boy liv
ing at 551 Haven street, Watt's Tract, Oak
land, was fatally shot by Deputy Sheriff J.
J. Lerri at Shell Mound Park last evening.
He was brought to the Oakland Receiving
Hospital by two companions, G. Dorsey
and L. Burns, who claims that the shoot
ing was entirely without provocation and
that Lerri had mistaken them for some
one else, tiring without being sure of whom
he was trying to kill.
According to their story they were stroll
ing about near Shell Mound Park when
they saw the deputy and another man, a
stranger to them, in an altercation. Sud
denly the man raised a heavy stick, which
he was carrying, and struck the deputy
over the head, running away before the of
ticer could recover sufficiently to catch him.
Later they saw the deputy coming
toward them, and on seeing him draw his
revolver ran away. They heard two shots
as they ran. and Spencer staggered and
said that he was shot.
The deputy did not seem to know that
he had inflicted a wound on the boy. for
after chasing them awhile he gave up and
Spencer's companions assisted him on to
the Berkely locai and brought him down
to Sixteenth street, from where he was
taken to the hospital. It was some time
before a doctor could be found.
l>r. Dunn was unable to locate the bullet,
and said that he believed the lead had
penetrated the spine and that the wound
would prove fatal.
Lerri had not appeared at his home at a
late hour last evening, and his version of
the difficulty could not be learned.

WEAPONS IN A SALOON
Escapade of an Ex-Soldier
on Sacramento Street
Daniel Mullen, the Proprietor, Had
a Narrow Escape From
David Barbour, an ex-United States sol
dier, created a sensation in Daniel Mullen's
saloon, at 650 Sacramento street, yesterday
morning shortly before 7 o'clock. The
sensation ended, however, in his being
landed in the California-street police sta
Barbour entered the saloon with a
"Whoopee!" and, flourishing a large
horse pistol in his hand, ordered Muilen,
who was behind the bar, to give up what
money he had about him. To emphasize
his demand he swung his weapon around
in a threatening fashion and lired a bul
let into the wainscoting of the place.
Seven or eight men, who had been sitting
around the tables, dashed out the rear
door and Mullen, while hia hair rose,
dragged out $1 75 from his pockets and
laid it on the counter. Barbour grabbed it
and demanded more.
"That's all I have " persisted Mullen.
''Dig up," cried Barbour, and aiming
the pistol direct at the saloonman tired
again. Mullen had presence of mind
enough left to spring aside and the bullet
tore a hole out of the counter, glanced and
went through a picture behind the bar.
"There's no more money here," yelled
Mullen, and the robber evidently con
cluded that he spoke the truth, after an in
vestigation of the drawer.
"Now, you can treat," he went on,
"come out, you fellows," and by means of
his pistol he made the men come out from
the back yard and stand before the bar.
Mullen served the drinks and then Bar
bour left, after threatening to kill any one
who spoke to the police.
Mullen did not report the matter until
last night. From his description of the
man Officers McGee and Barry ran Barbour
down in Chinatown. He was identified by
Mullen and the other men, but the identi
lication was not necessary as he admitted
what he had done. His regret was that
he could not clean out the police station in
the same way. Charges of robbery and
assault to murder were placed against

Stocktonians to Be Congratulated
on the Recent Re
The people of Stockton are to be con
gratulated on the brilliant success of the
regatta held at Stockton on the Fourth of
July. It was a grand success in every par
ticular and will go down in the history of
rowing as the greatest regatta ever held on
this coast. It was held under the auspices
of the Stockton Athletic Association and
the officers of the daj r were: Referee,
Governor James H. Budd ; judges of fin
ish—William F. Humphrey, president P.
A. A.; F. D. Cobb, S. A. A.; Robert
Edgren, V. C. ; R. Carmona; judges at
stakeboat— Jules Morton, O. C; A. H.
right, 8, A. A.; Colonel R. E. Murray;
timers— John Elliot, O. C. ; C. J. Hass, S.
A. A. ; M. H. Orr. S. A. A.; J. McElroy, 0.
C; starter, John E. Budd, president S.
A. A. ; marshal. Orrin Henderson, S. A. A.
The course over which the races were
rowed could not have been a finer one if it
was made to order. It is a mile and a half
in length and as straight as a rifle barrel,
and those witnessing the races had an un
obstructed view of the contests from start
to finish. It is not very often that an ath
letic contest has for a referee such a high
official as the Governor of the State, and
this fact in itself is what gave the Stockton
regatta such a boom, among the oarsmen.
Considerable interest was manifested in
the senior race of the regatta. The Stock
ton crew promised to retrieve its lost
laurels, and relied on the excessive heat to
knock out the oarsmen from the City. But
the heat did not come, and the champion
South E rulers won the race in a walk-over.
with the Stocktons second and the Pioneers
fifteen lengths behind the leaders.
'lhe me.nbersof the Pioneer Boat Club
had |150 bet with the South Ends on this
race and they were surprised to see their
crew bringing up the rear after the hard
race they gave the South Ends in the
recent regatta at Long Bridge.
The personnel of the South End senior
crew as it rowed in the regatta was:
Henry Bode, bow; Robert McArthur, for
wardwaist and captain; Gus Carson, after
waist; Frank Duplissea, stroke; and
George McGrill, coxswain.
The Stockton crew has come to the con
clusion that a light coxswain and a good
racing barge is an important factor in a
race. It will have a new racing barge
built for the Sacramento regatta on the 9th
of September, and will also pick out some
light and clear-headed boy to handle the
rudder ropes against Doc Flynn and
George McGrill, the crack coxswains of the
local amateur barge crews. The present
barge rows like a mudscow, and to this the
Stocktonians attribute their defeat.
It has been a long time since any of the
rowing clubs have succeeded in sharing
equal honors with the South Ends in a
regatta. The South Euds either win all or
a majority of their races. But the Ariels
succeeded in balancing the scales with
them in the recent regatta. They cap
tured the two junior races, while the South
Ends won the two senior events.
The Ariels are proud of their junior crew
and their little single-sculler, E. McCaus
land, who they predict a coming cham
pion. He won the junior race at Stock
ton in such candid style that they would
like to see him meet Frank Dupiissea of
the South Ends, who wrested the cham
pionship laurels from Henry Wittkopf at
the same place.
The personnel of the Ariel junior crew
is as follows: J.J.Nolan, bow and cap
tain; J. "W. Pembroke, forward waist; It.
M. Ellis, afterwaist; W. F. Howe, stroke,
and Edward Wilson Jr., coxswain. They
row under the instruction of Leander
Stevenson, one of the oldest oarsmen on
The boat clubs will soon put their crews
in training for the Admission-day regatta
at Sacramento, when the rowing season
THE PIONEERS' ELECTION
New Officers to Be Chosen
for the Ensuing Year
An Important Amendment Also to
Be Voted On, With a Banquet
The Society of California Pioneers will
elect oflicers for the ensuing year to-day.
The Pioneers have been actively en
gaged in campaigning for several days
past, and the election will be attended by
more than the usual interest. As a rule
there was but little opposition to the regu
lar ticket. This year, however, opposing
forces have gathered quite a solid support
and affairs will be lively at the polls dur
ing the day.
The polls will open at 9 a. m. and close
at sp. m. Besides the officers to be elected
is an amendment to be added or kept out
of the constitution.
This amendment looks to the provision
of a $100 appropriation to the widow of
each deceased member.
The names on the regular ticket are as
11. N. Tilden, president; for vice-presidents —
Nilrs Searls and H. E. Highton of San Fran
cisco, C. T. Kyland of Santa Clara, T. L. Barker
of Oakland, H. 11. Ellis of Sunol; John I). Tal
lant, treasurer; John F. Pinkham, marshal;
director?— rhristian Keiss, K. M. Root, D. P.
Harris. C. C. Moore, H. B. Kuss, John H. Jcwett,
E. T. Kruse, Leon Sloss.-C. J*. King.
On the opposition ticket the directors
are nearly the same, the principal tight
being confined lo the heads of the tickets,
namely, Tilden on the regular ticket and
Judge McKenzie, who leads the opposi
tion. There will be something of a contest
over the office of marshal, also, as E. B.
Vreeland's friends seem determined to
count more votes for him than are cast in
favor of John F. Pinkham.
Following the election and announce
ment of the vote the customary banquet
will be held.

William Castle came from Sacramento a few
days ago, and yesterday morning he met Fire
Commissioner Ahem of that city, in a saloon
on Sutter street and Grant avenue. They had
several drinks together, and when Castie was

dragged him back by the hair of the nead and
struck him a vicious blow on the abdomen
with his clenched fist, knocking his wind out.
Three men, thinking he was being murdered,
dragged him away from Ahem and out of the
saloon. The patrbl wagon was summoned and
he was taken to the Receiving Hospital, where

SELECTING THE DOCTORS
Governor Budd and Mayor
Sutro Busy With the Board
TWO ARE DEFINITELY CHOSEN.
The Others to Be Decided Upon
To-Day - The National
All yesterday afternoon Governor Budd
and Mayor Sutro discussed doctors. It
was a purely dispassionate, unpolitical af
fair and resulted in a decision on a few
questions, while there are several other
matters to be decided upon to-day. Among
the matters definitely decided upon
were the names of two of the members of
the new Board of Health. These are Dr.
Morse and Dr. Williamson.
"No," said the Governor, Jast night, "I
have not decided upon the men for the
Board of Health yet. You will know who
they are by to-morrow evening, though.
"All day, to-day, Mayor Sutro and my

urged me to accept anybody in particular.
"I know that there has been considerable
feeling among the small politicians at my
not appointing the board before. But
upon the physicians of the health office
depends the care of the sick and the
destitute. The City's finances have been
in so deplorable a state that the old board
had all it could do to keep things going
and avoid bringing unnecessary hardships
upon their wards. They worked to a much
greater advantace than a new board would
have done and yet they had every faculty
taxed to prevent disaster.
"In the formation of the new board I
have been considering several things be
sides the fitness of the applicants. Among
these is the feeling their fellow-physicians
have for them. This is to insure a board
that will work in such perfect harmony
that the members can be considered as a
unit on sanitary measures."
"Have you decided upon the men yet?"
"Not upon all of them. Two are fixed
upon. These are Dr. Morse and Dr.
Williamson. We are still considering the

"Well, will you be likely to appoint an

"Well, hardly," said his Excellency,
with a smile. "No, the appointment of

other physicians from consideration for
the other appointments."
"And who are the men you have been
The Governor drew a much marked
paper from his pocket. From the numer

Dr. CHnton, Dr. Ragan, Dr. Fitzgib
bqns, Dr. Fred Lux, Dr. Perry, Dr. Rosen
stirn, Dr. Hirschfelder, Dr. A. Abrams,
Dr. Henry H. Hart, Dr. Douglas Mont
gomery, Dr. Jonathan McDonald and Dr.
Dr. Lux, the Governor explained, was
very well recommended. Dr. Douglas
Montgomery was not an applicant, he
said, but was being urged by his friends.
He understood that Dr. Winslow Anderson
was a Republican. He did not know
whether Drs. Rosenstirn, Hirschfelderand
Abrams were Republicans or not. He
knew that Dr. Hart was a Democrat,
The Governor said that further consid
eration of the Board of Health matter had
been postponed till to-day. He and the
Mayor will talk over the appointments in
the office of the Harbor Commissioners.
"It may be," he said, "that the mem
bers of the board already decided upon
will be requested to advise with us. I don't
say that they will, but I am desirous of
having a board in which there will be
perfect harmony. Such a step would as
With regard to the National Guard, Gov
ernor Budd was non-committal.
"I can't say what will be done until I
have consulted the other members of the
Board of Location," he said. "They are
old soldiers and I depend largely 'upon
"The new act requires that there should
be ten less companies than there are. This
means that ten more companies will have
to be consolidated with others.
"I understand that at first the members
of Company H felt aggrieved because they
had been mustered out of the service and
not consolidated with some other com
pany. Now, if it is not in the orders it
was intended to be put in, that the com
panies named might, if they wished, be
consolidated with any company agreeable
to all concerned. It was decided to put it
this way. because it was feared that if they
were ordered to consolidate with some par
ticular company the other company might
not be agreeable."
Governor Budd could not say how many
of the ten companies to be taken off the
roster would come from San Fcancisco.
He thought that the majority would be
from this City, as it would be impossible
to consolidate two companies in two dif
ferent country towns.
The matter of making one regiment of
the troops in San Francisco was being con
sidered. Such a step, it was evident, was
favored by Mr. Budd. He said, though,
that the matter would have to be passed
upon by the Board of Location, and before
anything was done the advice of General
Warfield would probably be asked for."
The Governor thought there would be
four troops of cavalry — one for this City,
one for Los Angeles, one for Sacramento
and one for Monterey. The board has not
yet decided with what commands th* horse
soldiers would be connected or whether
they would constitute an especial organiza
"In everything we are simplifying," said
the Governor. "By reducing the number
of regiments in San Francisco we would
bring the soldiers and men closer together.

IN THE HANDBALL COURTS
M. J. Kilgallon and J. McEvely
Defeat J. Harlow and
Several Other Most Interesting and
Closely Contested Games
The attendance at the handball courts
yesterday was very good and a number of
interesting games were played.
At the San Francisco court a close and
exciting match was played between J. Har
low, the coast champion, and G. Hutchin
son and M. J. Kilgalion, the Denver cham
pion, and J. McEvely, four of the strong
est players on the coast. Each side won
two games and the final was won by Kil
gallon and McEvely. A match has been
arranged for next Sunday between Harlow
and his old partner, J. Lawless, and Kil
galion and Hutchinson and probably at
the same time Kilgalion and Lawless will
play against Champion Jones of Australia.
The event of the day at the Occidental
court was a match between John Purcell
and Al Collins and Ed Maloney and L.
Kenny which was keenly contested from
start to finish, Purceli and Collins winning
tbe final game by one ace. On Wednesday
night John Mallon and P. F. McCormick
will play C. J. McGlynn and D. M. Stan
ley ; Al Hampton will play James Nelson
and T. P. Bonnet and John Purcell will
play M. J. Kilgallon and R. Lenihan.
Among the numerous events at the
Union court was a match between John
Riordan and J. Nelson and R. Lenihan
and Al Pennoyer, which aroused the
greatest enthusiasm owing to the frequent
sharp rallies. Riordan and Nelson were
the victors. Al. J. Kelly, a member of
Phil Casey's court in Brooklyn, and
T. Lenihan played a rattling earae against
W. McManus, the proprietor of the Union
court, and James o'Donnell, and notwith
standing McManus' unprecedented record
of 42 consecutive aces the previous Sunday
while playing against two well-known
amateurs, Kelly and Lenihan won.
Next Sunday afternoon at the Union
court Kilgallon and Hariow will play a
return match against Lenihan and Pen
noyer, the two former having been de
feated last Thursday, and a square heel
and toe contest will take place between
T. L. Edwards, twice the winner of the
California diamond belt, and John Rior
dan, the well-known handball-player. The
distance will be three miles, and Riordan
will get a start of a quarter of a mile.

CRICKET IN THE HOT SUN
The Alamedas and Bohemians
Beat Their Foes With
The Wickets Were Fast— Captains
Hood and Robertson
Yesterday's cricket matches proved two
things. First, that the game's enthusiasts
are utterly impervious to the temperature,
and, second, that the strength of the re
spective teams is badly out of balance.
At the Webster-street ground the Ala
medas met and defeated the Pacifies with
an ease that divested the game of all in
terest — from an onlookers standpoint.
Captain Hood won the toss and took the
field. Five wickets of his opponents fell
before the telegraph registered double
figures. Although John Theobald came to
the rescue with a well compiled 21, the side
was disposed of for 54 runs.
Against this total the captain of the blue
and whites himself contributed a half cen
tury, and when it« tenth wicket had fallen
bis side had put together 150 runs. The
Pacifies played a second innings, but its
result, with that of their first, only brought
them within 39 runs of their adversaries.

scored 58 with consummate ease, and five
of his men reached double figures. The
total reached was 167. Townsley did good
work for the black and yellows with a well
played innings of 22. But nobody sec
