ACME CLUB CYCLISTS SET A NEW MARK-- 24:20.
The greatest roadrace ever held in Cali
fornia was conducted by the Associated
Cycling Clubs yesterday morning over the
ten-mile stretch from Fruitvale to Hay
wards. In point of interest, number of
riders, time made and the value Oi prizes
it excelled any previous event of the kind
ever held in this State.
The day was an ideal one for cycle
racing. A slight Bprinkle of rain Satur
day evening had laid the dust and cleared
the atmosphere, and a brisk breeze at the
backs of the riders facilitated speed and
accounted in a measure for the remarkH
bly fast time made.
The Associated Clubs, composed of all
the prominent cycling clubs within a
radius of fifty miles of San Francisco,
about twenty-five in number, holds four
big roadraces Annually— a 25-mile handi
cap around the San L^andro triangle in
February, a 100-mile relay around the bay
in April, a 20-mile scratch around the tri
ange in July, and a 10-mile straightaway
handicap in October.
It was this latter event which was run
yesterday, and it was the third one held
thus far. In number of entrants it ex
ceeded the two previous ones by nearly
double, and the time made was so ex
ceptionally fast as to border almost on the

with a set pun ose in their eye. Tie elder
generation, too, seemed stimulated by the
occasion and tlie electric cars toward fa

could be viewed were jammed with en

Thither, foo, were hastening vendors of

The word had evidently been passed
around by mysterious grapevine telegraph
ti.at some record-breaking might be done.
As it turned out the crowds were not dis
ap 1 ointed.
Viewed as a whole the event was a grand
opportunity for an outiug. Every entrant
had a following. There was his own
family to begin with and then came his
friends and his feliow-clubmen.
END OF ALL
Rev. Father Yorke Holds
It Lies in the Church
THE POPE INFALLIBLE.
Christ Builded the Church as a
House Founded Upon a
IN POSSESSION 1500 YEARS.
A Fine Audience In St. Francis
Church List ns to the Chance.
lcr's Latest Lecture-
One of the finest audiences that Rev.
Father P. C. Yorke has addressel in this
City fa a long time assembled last niput
in St. Francis Church, on Vallejo street,
near Montgomery avenue, to near his
lecture on "The End of Controversy." The
admission was 50 cents, and there was
hardly a vacant seat to be seen in the vast
auditorium and galleries. The choir gave
a prelude of some special music while the
audience wns assembling.
Rev. Father Carrahtr. pastor of St
Francis, from the pulpit kindly requested
the large audience to remember that they
were seated in the house of God and not
in a hall. Father Yorke spoke lor uver an
hour. The lecture was not a discussion of
local questions, as the topic might sug
gest, but a comprehensive dissertation on
the authority of the church of Rome.
Father Yorke saiQ substantially:
The end of controversy that I intend to speak
about is, I consider, an end to controversy not
only in this City, but of all controversy of a
similar nature. What would be the natural
end 01 a pre»t controversy which divides the
great bodies of the people of this Republic?
There might be an end of controversy by mu
tual agreement — if there were a settling down
into a state of mutual stagnation.
But there may be another end. People may
care lit tie of the matters in dispute, when iv
a city or Sta»e or country the people take no
interest in politics then the beginning of the
end of that country has begun; the end of
liberty has come. 80 it is the same way when
m<"n tnke no interest in religion. They have
forgotten what 1* tbe noblest part of them.
1 nere is an end of con;rover*y, and oue end
alone. It we are 10 have an end of contro
versy, then we must a.l t-ettle on uhut is the
truth. Now as to the tru;h aud controversy
of religion, of course there are a large number
of [x-ojile »ho do not think there is any truth
In religion. If there is no such truth, then
we are children disputing about a trifle.
But the vast mt jority of the people of this
country are Christians of some sort. They be
lieve there is ; ruth in religion. Now, li there
be any truth then that truth must be the end
of hil controversy. The whole real end is to
find out if there nas in this wide world e^er
been any one to tell us what the truth is.
Now, you know that about 1900 years ago
there appeared a certain muniu Palestine Woo
professed to bring a messaged fiom GoJ — who
professed the truth and taugnt it. The end of
nil controversy must be what Christ said.
What truth there is in him must be the end of
His u-achings were written down. Hence
the Bible and what It says is the end of a 1
controversy. If we study it we shall find in
our hearts that peace which is the end of
Nobody can deny that there are in every re
ligious cect and denomination men and wo
men who mean to do what is right and who
are seeking tbe truth. But what Christ speaks
in th ■• Bib cis one thing to the Baptists and to
the Methodists or Episcopalians or Pn»sbyte
rUns it is something else. We find all denom
inations com ng to the Bible for an end of
controversy, but they go away in more con
A few days ago politicians of this City had a
controversy about what ticket had a right to
go before the people. They took the question
to a tribunal, which passed upon and ended
the controversy. Some say the decision was
wrong, but nevertheless it wag au end of the
controversy. There was peace where before
there were deputes.
How is it in religion that we cannot have
•uch an end of comrove rsy ? If there is an end
o! controversy in religion, it is to be found in
some religious authority, some tribunal, somo
supreme court, which lias the right of study
ing It and of giving a decision. Religion af v r
ail is the moit important .hlng.
Now our Lord gathered about him a certain
body of men, with whom he had sweet con
verse, lie knew controversy would come.
Lightning Time in the Hay wards Road Race in Which One Hundred Men
Started and Seventy-Nine Finished.
The class of "friends'* very often in
rluded some one at least of the fair sex,
who more than appreciated the fine rk-ure
which her hero presented in racing trim.
Many drivers, too, took advantage of the
chance to give their buggy-horses a
breather and followed the sport with pecu
liar advantage. All in all, it was as motley
an assemblage as ever was drawn together
in the pretty suburbs ol Oakland.
Tne association's events always draw
large crowds to the start and finish of the
races, and yesterday's attendance was
much greater than usual. The race was
scheduled to leave Fruuvalo at 11 o'clock,
and an hour before that time the vicinity
of High street and the San Leandro road
was a mass of cyclers, with more arriving
all the lime. When it came time to start
the different contestants Starter Fawcett
found great difficulty in getting sufficient
clear room lor the riders.
In some places the road over which the
race was run was lightning fast. Twenty
six men rode under the record of last year,
which was 25 mm. 59 4-5 sec, and the fast
est time made was fully a minute and a
half faster than that. It was a case of
"sprint" from start to finish, and those
who had not looked well to their training
soon acquired a tired feeling which in
duced them to quit early in the ride,
whereupon they would carefully inspect
their wheels to give bystanders and pass
ing riders the impre^ion that something
bad happened to their mounts.
Though many fell by the wayside
through inability to keep the pace and
others met with punctures and other
slight accidents, still nothing serious hap
pened to any one and eighty out of the
original 110 entrants finished the rase.
E. J. Smith of the Acme Club rode into
first place from a handicap uf three min

there being no one within a hundred

is Cnrist— not a dead Christ, but the Christ
that is in the midst of us.

to call it, spoke the vxird, >nd by the author

Our Lord spoke of a society which he was
going to build as a house. We understand
what he means. The first thing that a house
needs is a foundation. The country In which
Jesus Cnrist lived was much like California.
Like tne wise man buildcd, the house was
builded on a rock. He spoke ab ut building
it on a rock. He meant that the organization
should be put on a certain foundation, which
sh. v.d keep it together, and it is the end of
So Christ cnanged the name of Simon to
rock and builded his church against it, and
the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
We believe that Jesus Christ established in
his church an end of controversy — a tribunal
or power to take up controversies and decide
them. In law the quiet possession of property
for a term of years entitles the possessor to its
undisputed possession thereafter. Now, it Is a
curiou-, thing that the power to end contro
versy was in the possession of one body for
1500 years, up to 300 years ago.
The Christian world acKnowledged that that
power existed. We can find it exercised in
every country up to 300 years ago. Surely
sucn possession ought to entitle that body,
that tribunal to the power it claimed, and
that body is known ac the church of Rome. If
we see the necessity of an end of controversy,
the one church alone which should have the
power is the church of Rome, which claims
the right of the court of appeals. Other de
nominations know their own doctrines are
They confess their liability to err. The Pope
is the lineal descendant of St. Peter, who was

fallibility only means thai wnen a decision 13
handed down from the Supreme Court it is the
right decision. If God establishea that Su
preme Court it is infallible, and if It is not it
is a delusion and a snare, and we were better
off without it.
If the Pope is the end of controversy he
must be infallible. There is only one society
wnich claims the infallible cud of contro
versy. It is the one flock and the one shep
herd of us all. It is one law, one God, one
baptism, one shepherd and one universal fold
into which all the sheep may come.

Dr. B H. Foreman. On the lone range

no shooiinß done on the 100-yard range at

shooting would keep the men around the
bay busy to beat.

The sudden call for the troops to move
has imposed a pecuniary hardship on Ihe
officers and enlisted men with families.
There has been a deal of money-borrowing
in order to make the trip. . One officer
raised $7U) to lend to the band.
At the Presidio, Alcatraz and Fort Mason
packing up is the order of the day.
Special orders No. 120 from department
headquarters report that official notifica
tion lias b en re« eived of the trans ers of
Major Joseph G. Ramsay from the Third
to tne Filth Artillery and Major John A.
Darlinsr from the Fifth to t c Third Artil
lery. The transfer enables Major Darling
to remain at ihe Presidio. The ta k of
Major Darling securing a triumph over
General Graham in obtaining this transfer
is regarded at department headquarters as
unwarranted. Colonel Shatter, the de
partment commander, says that Major
Darling's application lor a transfer was
approved by General Graham, and on that
favorable recommendation approval at de
partment headquarters followed.
General Graham, who leaves next Thurs
day for ihe Department of the East, nas
commanded the post at the Presidio since
1887, with the exception of an interval of
eighteen months, when Colonel Langdon
was in command. As a disciplinarian he
holds a firm hind on a garrison and re
quires every officer and enlisted man to
perform his duty. He has made some
enemies among civilians who desired to
train their dogs ana pasture liyesto< k on
the reservation, but he has gained the
commendation of many people for his ex
cellent management of post affairs. It
has been his purpose to make the reserva
tion a pleasant park, for ladies and chil
dren, and to this end strict patrol dmy
lias been enforced to prevent tramps from
camping on the premises.
General Graham at first thought of leav
ing his family here, but on second consid
eration decided to take all the members of
his household to New York, excepting one
son, who will remain a> the University of
California. The general will probably re
turn to San Francisco for permanent
residence after his retirement. He ranks
as one of the ablest ana bravest soldiers
in the army. Speaking of some of his
traits an officer of the Filth Artillery re
cently said: "'I am not in love with Gen
eral Graham, but I will say that there is
no discount on him as a soldier. He ex
pects every man to do his duty and sets
the example himself. He has no patience
with offii ers or men who skulk from dan
ger or shrink from duty."
The advance command of the Third
Art llery should arrive in San Francisco
next Saturday. The headquarters, Colonel
Bain bridge, staff, band, Light Batteries C
and F and Batteries A, G, H, I and X will
take station at the Presidio. Tne lieuten
ant-colonel and Batteries D and L will go
to Alcatraz and Battery E to Fort Mason.
Colonel Suter, Major Davis and Lieu
tenant Potter, corps of engineers, are now
at work on the fortifications of this har
bor. Another 12-inch rifle is on the way
to this City.
It will go to Lime Point. Last week the
engineer began the work on three em
placements for twelve such guns on this
side of the channel. Two are being made
on the hill back of the dynamite battery,
and one will be near Fort Point.
Captain James S. Pettit, First Infantry,
has been ordered to proceed to Benicia
