meets at short intervals. It is proposed to
hold a meet every Saturday afternoon and
evening on the new track at Central Park
and the racers are already beginning to
talk about the great league meet to be held
in Potaluma on July 4 and 5.
To-day the best of the National circuit
meets thus far held will be conducted by
the Garden City Cyclers at San Jose, and
the entry list, already published in The
Call, shows the names of some of the
fastest riders in the State. In the profes
sional events particularly the races and
iiniahes are expected to be exceedingly
close and desperate, as the men fighting
for money prizes do so with a great deal
more spirit than when the trophies were
second-class diamonds and uncertain jew
Most of the riders and visitors from this
City who intend going to San Jose will
take either tbe 8:15 or 10:40 A. m. broad
gauge trains this morning, the trip taking
two hours. The railroad has made a
round-trip excursion fare of $1 70 for the
trip, good on all trains until Monday,
Next week there are two particular
events in which the wheelmen will take
interest. First conies the Olympic Cyclers'
entertainment, dance and minstrel show,
to be held at Native Sons' Hali Thursday
evening. The Cyclers are one of the most
popular wheeling clubs in the City, and
from far and near their friends will come
to join with them in the merry time to be
had Thursday evening. It goes without
Baying that the entertainment will be par
excellence, as the club contains many tal
ented amateurs and can have the pick of
the best in the City, and the dance, which
will be made the feature of the evening,
will commence early and end early— in the
Saturday the National circuit riders will
contest on the Central Park track. The
earne men who will ride to-day at San Jose
will compete there next week, so that those
who cannot spare the time to make the
San Jose trip to-day have yet a chance of
peeing some of this exciting sport right at
home. The San Francisco wheelmen
should support the new track liberally as
it has been greatly needed and will help
the sport and trade here materially.
R. M. Welch, member of the National
Racing Board in California, has issued
another of his interesting bulletins as fol

Member National Racing Board.
The suspension of Harry Terrill of the
Bay City Wheelmen by the racing board
is for the non-payment of a fine of $20
levied upon him by Referee Plummer at
the Santa Rosa races last Saturday. Ter
rill feels that the action of the referee was
hardly called for and declares be will not
pay the penalty. The whole trouble is as
follows^ The referee placed a time limit
on all fbe scratch events to prevent the
riders from loafing. In some cases where
the limit was exceeded by a second or two
he overlooked it, as it was evident that the
•men obeyed the spirit of the rule if not the
letter. But in one instance where the
limit was exceeded some twenty seconds,
and the race was palpably a "loaf," he dis
qualified the men in that heat and would
not allow them to ride in the final. Ter
rill iB then reported to have told Plnmmer,
in a voice loud enough for every one
around to hear, that he was a "bum" ref
eree and was showing favoritism, where
upon he was at once fined $20, a power
given the referee under the new racing
rules. This is the first instance of the
kind on record and the outcome will be
awaited with interest.
W. C. Brode of the Bay City Wheelmen
has returned from a trip to Los Angeles.
George Andrews, Emil Languetin and
Robert Reed, of the same club, left Thurs
day night to ride to Angels Camp, Cala
veras County, where they will visit the
TJtica mine and other points of interest,
returning next week.
The Camera Club Cyclists held their an
nual meeting last Thursday evening. The
report of the officers showed the club to be
in a prosperous condition. The election
of officers resulted as follows: Charles A.
Adams, president; Mrs. H. C. Cantwell,
vice-president; H. C. Owens, secretary; H
C. Cantwell, treasurer; J. J. B. Argenti
captain ; Walter N. Brunt, first lieutenant ;
A. G. MacFarland, second lieutenant The
president and captain succeeded them
eelves in office as their tenure of office
during the past term had been particu
larly satisfactory to the members. After
the business of the meeting was concluded
the ladies and gentlemen of the club en
joyed a game of progressive euchre and
some light refreshments.

City Wheelmen desires a companion

My Dear Spalding: Here we are at work

parison. The pnrk and surroundings offer
attractions enough to keep the boys on the

and many of the others will remain until a day
or so before the Cincinnati meet and will
return here after it is over.
1 have been giving Otto all unpaced work up
to the present writing, and will now put him
in with Gardiner to ride together. He has
been ridine very strong unpaced, and this
wort will enable nim to ride a good handicnp
race. It is my opinion that handicap races
will be the feature of the '96 circuit, so I am
preparing him for them. There is tome talk
of dropping the paced race, and. if this should
be the case, he will be bettered by doing this
unpaced work. Otto is taking excellent care
of himself and will make a lively competitor
for any one on the Natinnnl circuit. He and
Gardiner are very much 'he favorites here in
Louisville. This is probably due to the good
w ork they did when after records last fall.
Gardiner is also riding well and will be one
of the crowd to compete at Cincinnati. In
build be greatly resembles Allan Jones, and
has about the same tactics and style of riding.
Hardly an effort is shown even while doing a
Bald has just begun training, and is doing
unpaced work altogether. Homer Fairmon,
the long-distance crack, is here under the in
structions of the veteran trainer, John West,
who is preparing him for his match races with

Pat O'Connor is also in training here, and

Death of a Prominent Athlete— The
Boxing Craze Has Arrived.
The Olympic Club lost one or Its
stanchest members yesterday morning.
Frank G. Phillips, who held the title of
amateur champion middle and heavy
weight wrestler of the Pacific Coast, died
at his home, 1943 Howard street, of pneu
monia. Tbe young athlete was ailing
only a few days. He contracted a severe
cold, which developed into pneumonia,
that quickly brought his life on this earth
to an end. Phillips won tbe amateur
wrestling championship on the 21st of
March last at the Olympic Club by defeat
ing every athlete he competed against.
Professor Miehiing, the wrestling in
structor, predicted a very brilliant future
for young Phillips. Tue deceased was 21
years of asre.
James Williams, the champion heavy
weight pugilist of Jtaa, is anxious to meet

The Interstate Club Will Hold Two
Days' Meeting at Ingleslde.
The Interstate Coursing Ciub is making
extensive preparations fora grand inclosed
meeting, which will be held at lngleside
Park on May 30 and 31.
The ground is in magnificent condition
for coursinc, ami the hares, which have
become thoroughly familiar with the park,
will certainly make the grass fly in front
of the fleetest of their pursuers. Ingle
side Park is an ideal spot lor coursing.
The spectator who is comfortably seated
in the grand stand can see every twist and
turn of a race from start to finish. It must
be remembered that the best of order is
maintained at meetings held under the
auspices of the Interstate Club, and for
this reason large numbers of ladies are
always present to witness the racing and
enjoy the sport of kings.
A 64-dog stake at $5 a dog, to which
the club will add $100, will be the
feature of greatest interest on this near
future occasion. A puppy stake at $5
each, with an added $25, will also be run.
It can be safely said that any person who
is desirous of witnessing a first-class two
days' outing, where the very best of de
corum is observed, should not miss the
next coursing meeting of the Interstate
John Grace, the prince of coursinp
judges, will be in the saddle on the two
days of the meeting and J. F. Grace, the
crack pedestrian, will handle the slips.
At the opening of the Insleside track on
the 3d inst. there were fully two thousand
people present, and it is expected that
twice that number will witness the inter
state coursing club's meeting.
The dogs that will run for the consola
tion stakes at Ingleside Park will be
"drawn" on the gr.unds to-morrow (Sun
day) immediately after the first round in
the regular stake is finished. J. P. Dalton,
proprietor of the park, will add $20 to the
s:ake. Of course, nonp but dogs defeated
in the regular stake can enter for the con
Mountain Streams That Are In Good
Condition for Fishing:.
Latest intelligence from towns in th
country that are within easy reach Of
trout-fishing waters is to the effect that
the creeks are now running very clear and
in good order lor fly-fishing. The weather
has been so bad during the past week that
few anglers anticipate success in fly-cast
ling to-morrow. The cold north wind baa
killed off the winged insects, and it can be
i safely said that until a spell of warm air
arrives top fishing will not be good.

H. Kenltzor Has Made Some Excel
lent Scores at Rest-Shooting:.
H. Kenitzer, an old-time rifleman of
this coast, has been doiii,: some remarka
ble shooting of late, notwithstanding the
fact that he has almost reached his seven
tieth year. During the past ten days Mr.
Kenitzer has been practicing at the Shell
Mound rifle tange. He has several fine
rifles, but of late he has obtained the best
results with a 32-caliber Pope barrel, tele
scope sight, shooting with a rest at
200 yards. Kenitzer uses black powder
with a nitro primer.
On the 2d inst. he made a score in ten '
shots of which he justly feels proud and
which is here reproduced, reduced one
third. He made '2i6 on the 25-ring target.
This is equal to 20 on Columbia target and
111 on the'standard American. This shows
an average of 24 3-10 rings. On that oc
casion he made a run of 40 shots, with
| these results:
First ten 24 24 25 25 25 24 24 25 25 25-240
Second ten '25 '.'3 23 23 25 US 84 25 25 24— 240

Fourth ten 24 25 23 2-1 24 24 24 25 25 25-243
Total for 40 shots 9ts3
On the Bth inst. Kenitzer again took a
turn at the target under the same condi
tions, and filed fifty shots without clean
ing his rifle. His score in runs of ten
was 239, 240, 237, 242, 238 — total, 1196.
This beats W. Glindemann's rest score.
Notwithstanding the fact that these are

excellent scores for any one, and particu
larly for one who has reached such a ripe
age, they cannot be accepted as a record,
because they were not shot on a rest rec
ord target. Considering Mr. Kenitzer's
fine shooting, it is a pity the scores were
not made on a record target, the Standard
American being the only target with a
rest center. In the East a number of clubs
are making rest records on the new Colum

The South End Boat Clnb, under whose
auspices the affair is to be held, had an
enthusiastic reeatta meeting last evening,
and elected the following for a regatta
committee: J. E. Scully, chairman; J. D.
Mahoney, secretary; Joseph ODea, treas
urer; Al J. Fritz, William O'Brien, J. A.

A. J. Mellitz, T. F. Barry, D. J. Gorham,
William J. Daily, Bob McArthur, William

The senior race of this regatta, it is
feared, will be a disappointment, as none
of the clubs with but one exception, the
Alameda Boat Club, and it is yet unde
cided, have so far organized a senior crew.
But it is thought that the winning junior
crew will enter the senior event, and
thereby give the public a chance to see the
South End's celebrated crew row.
The single scull race between William
McCausland, Frank Duplissea and Jack
Caughlin will undoubtedly be the greatest
amateur scull event seen on the bar in
Duplissea is the recognized senior cham
pion of the coast. Caughlin defeated all
comers in the outrigger skiff events of last
season and McCausland is considered a
wonder with the spoons.
