DOLPHINS' AQUATIC FETE.
The committee in charge of ladies* day
at the Dolphin boathouse on July 15 is
working hard to prepare an interesting
series of events. It consists of W. O.
Patch, J. S. Earls, T. R. Dlxon, T. J.
Kennedy, W. L. Bush and Frank Mc-
Elrath. The principal events will be as
follows: Race between. senior and junior
barge crews: race in outrigger skiffs be
tween E. H. Coney and W. Dunn; shell race
between JT. R. Keenan and A. W. Pape;
outrigger; skiff race between Stanley Ad
derley, George Baker and W. O. Patch;
race between five men in tubs; tug-of-war
in boats; Junior outrigger skiff race:
handicap swimming race, 225 yards, for
.which :. fifteen entries have- been made
exhibition of life saving by Champion

last year. Besides the aquatic events there
will be music and dancing in the club
house and, refreshments will be served
The Alameda Boating Club has hitherto
been managed by the members, the num
ber of ., whom In attendance at meetings
is between thirty and forty. It has been
found, however,, that the dispatch of busi
ness-is rendered difficult at meetings
where every member, talks, and at the
mee t^ s « cI m 1^ 8 . 1 . Tu esday an amendment
to the constitution and by-laws of the
club was suggested. It is proposed that
the management of club affairs be in
trusted to a board of eiifht directors, four
of whom are to hold office for six rooik'-ss
and four for eight months, so that four
directors will .b<» chosen at each half
yearly meeting. The board is to elect the
president, secretary, treasurer and com
mittees on finance, regattas and boats.
The house officers are to be subordinate
to the board of directors and to be elected
from the body of the club. As the cl«b
has now 121 members the difficulty of
transacting business is apparent.
The folio-wing nominations have been
made for the various club offices: For
president,., caries H. Smith: vice presi
dent, Theodore Eiffeldt: financial secre
tary. C. J. Hague: recording secretary. "W.
D. Hinchman; treasurer. D. Greenleaf:
captain. F. W. Ayers and E. B. Thornine;
lieutenant. Sydney Pollard and D. H.
Everett: m«rribers of executive committee
—Paul Bunker, XV. C. Donnelly and E. M.
Hunter; delegates to Pacific Association
of Amateur Athletic Union (three to be
elected) — John A. Hammersmith, W. B.
Hlnehman. E. M. Hunter and W. G. Han
sen. If the proposed amendments tn the
constitution are passed at the next meet-
Ing the foregoing nominations will become
void and the election of . a> board of di
rectors will be proceeded with.
Some friction has already occurred be
tween the rowing committee of the semi
centennial celebration of the Native Sons
of the Golden West and the delegates
from the boating clubs. It has been as
serted that the men who attend the com
mittee meetings as representatives of the
Ariel Rowing Club have never been
chosen for that work by- the members,
and a suggestion has been made that a
committee ©f three from each club should
be appointed to manage the Towing races.
A SPORTSMEN'S SHOW.
The San Franrisoo and Kan Mateo Agri
cultural Association has announced the"
intention to hold a sportsmen's' show in
connection with the bench show. Henry
J. Crocker, the president, took in the last
Fportmen's show held in Madison Square
Gardens. New York, and was so im
pressed that he is convinced that an ad

show held here would prove a great at

HOMING PIGEONS TO RACE
The California Pigeon and Homing.So
ciety will hold its third race of the nortt}- 1
em teries for young birds to-morrow from
Red ' Bluff .. This race is looked forward to
with interest, because as; an experiment
some of the birds have been trained care
fully, while others have not flown since
the Marj'svllle race of the .17th inst., in
which race the coast record was broken.
The following owners will be represented
to-morrow: A; E. Wray, three-birds; G.
S. Marsh, three; O. W. Marsh, three; J. S.
Barnes.' four; W. Hartray, seven, ' and H.
C. Worth, eight. .
Henry Vftn Cortebeek of the California
Pigeon and Homing: Society had- a suc
cessful fly on. the 24th Inst. , The birds wer e
liberated at Sisson, 338 miles by rail from
this city. They were liberated at 5 a.m.,
at which time a. strong south wind was
blowing. The first bird arrived at 3:01 p.
in., the second at 3:16, third at 4:45 and
fourth at 4:52. The two remaining birds
did not return the same day.
A change was made in" the schedule
this week on account of , the Btockton
Fair. There was a demand for a ball
game at Stockton, so the magnates agreed
to transfer the San Francisco-Stockton
game from this city to the Slough City.
As a consequence the Sacramentos will
play two series in succession on the local
diamond.- The Oaklands made a phenom
enal spurt when they last met the Sac
ramentos away from the home of 'the
champions. It was an off week for the
men from the capital.,. They dropped two
games and made a: tie. of the third. On
this trip they will encounter a different
aggregation, as some of Manager Ew
ings brightest young men are playing on
the diamonds of Montana. The last to
leave him was pitcher Steffani, who
when he was asked for his terms by the
Montana Club some weeks since, replica
that about $500 per month would geihis
game. He was offered" $175 and refused"
Then came the $ 200 offer, which he ac
cepted and was thereupon put upon the
California League blacklist for breaking
his contract. Manager JCwing still has
pitchers galore and. he thinks that his
team is as strong as ever. ' ¦

CRICKET AT THE SEASIDE.
•Last Sunday's play afforded a striking
example of the difficulty, of predicting th«
result of a cricket match. The Pacific
team, which/ had been beaten ;by the AlaV
mela eleven^who had in their. turn been
defeated by the | Callfornians, 1 proved it
self a victor over: the Californias by the
ample margin of 78 runs. It may be urged
that two: Pacific batsmen, Coles and
Myers, were "the whole thing," and that'
the. Cnllfornias lacked the services of
Reynolds land Howard. .
To-morrow being <¦ an /open aay on the
schedule of. the California Cricket Asso
ciation an eleven of .the Alameda club
will Journey down to "Santa Cruz this
evening. 1 arid to-morrow will play against
the ¦-' team •of the - Santa : Cruz Country
Cricket Club. ;The 'Alameda eleven will
be; as follows.: R. 8./Hogue (captain) J
H.iSaunders, J. J. Mortarty, P. V. Croll'
Henry Ward, Harold Ward. V. Seebeck'.
W. G. Fortmann, F. Stahl,- H. W. Brown
and xW. Richter. ; In September of last
year, a team of cricketers visiting San
Francisco from ,' Santa , Cruz defeated an
Alameda team by 27 / runs and on the
following day, defeated a Pacific eleven by

CYCLERS IN COMPETITION.
A racing event of considerable import
ance in cycling will be held to-morrow at
San Jose— a 15-mile handicap on the mile
horse track there — between teams of fif
teen men each from the Olympic Club
Wheelmen and Garden City Wheelmen.
The particulars of the race and names
of the men on the two teams were pub
lished in last Saturday's Call. This race
will hardly result In a decision as to the
racing strength of the two clubs, as
many of the riders are. not at their best
at this season of the year. But they
have all trained faithfully and the fact
that the event is a handicap should make
it most Interesting. A large delegation of
Olympics, headed by Captain T. G. Spil
lane, will go down on to-morrt>w morn
ing's 9 o'clock train.* returning after the
race. The road from Fruttvale to San
Jose just now is in excellent condition and
many will doubtless ride down to-morrow

gramme of cycling events scheduled for
the celebration there on July 4. There
will be six open events and the prizes are
good. Chance for a "pot hunt" for some
Great activity has been shown by th«
gentlemen conducting the preliminaries
connected with the proposed cycle path
from this city to San Mateo and the
project seems to be moving ahead without
difficulty. As soon as the route is agreed
upon subscriptions will be taken to do the
surveying work and the path will be
commenced in earnest. The path associa
tion was particularly fortunate in secur
ing such efficient officers. With E. B.
Learning as president, Judge Frank H.
Kerrigan and Charles Albert Adams on
the board and Robert M. Welch as treas
urer there is little left to.be desired.
The match race between H. D. tßean of
the Bay City Wheelmen and J. E. Wing
of the Garden City Wheelmen will take
place Sunday, July 8, at Centervllle.
Robert A. Smyth has resigned. as offi

TO DEFEND THE
Californias Will Race for the
Wallace Trophy on July
The board of directors of the San Fran
cisco Yacht Club and the regatta commit
tee held a meeting- on Tuesday to con
sider the challenge for the Perpetual cup
forwarded last week by the Corinthian
It was decided to accept the challenge
and Com mode re. "Ws N. McCarthy and ex-
Commodore Isidore Gutte were appointed a
committee to confer with Matthew T,ur
ner of Benicia with reference to the sloop
Gadder, which will probably be chosen as
the defender. The club last year incurred
preat expense in fitting out the Gadder for
the race against the sloop Truant, putting
an iron shoe and a fin upon her keel,
tiiihi n& a hood to make her conform to
ihe definition of a "cabin yacht" and sup
plyinK her with a new suit of sails. The
cost of preparing her for the race will be
much smaller this year and will probably
be defrayed without drawing upon the
funds of the club. The race will he In
charge of the regatta committees -of the
two clubs and will be under the rules of
the San Franciscos. the challenged paity.

about the md pf July.
On July 4 the annual race of the Cali

in th* club and time allowance is given.
Tho present holder of the trophy is.E. J<\

p. m.. will be on a flood tide both ways.
.To-day and to-morrow are open days

Corinthian and Encinal Yacht Clubs. I The
Californlas will cruise to Paradise Cove,
returning to-morrow. The San Franciscos

FAST PACE OF
Other Teams in California
-Baseball League Cannot
A combination of luck ana base hits
played havoc with the San Francisco
baseball team last week, sending the Teu-
tons farther down the toboggan and ele
vating the champions to a high notch. It
now seems that nothing short of a Rusie
could stop the champions in their upward

ful. He has considered the possibility of
securing the services of Rusie or some
other high priced twirler with a stout

The Press and the People
Take a Decided Stand
The citizens of Sacramento have taken
a decided ¦ stand in the matter of pool
rooms in that city, the Bee going so far
as to say that Sacramento can afford to
lose the State Fair rather than permit
the poolrooms gaining a foothold^ under
any pretext. The Bee says: v
Said Teter J. Shields, secretary of the
State Board iof Agriculture, in an inter
view in the Bee yesterday:
"AH that is needed by us is the right to
conduct our pooling and bookmaking on the
racecourse durlngr the progress of the fair."
To that no man earnest and honest in the '
rru!=a<le against the poolrooms has ex
pressed or will express any opposition.
The privilege asked on behalf of the Stato
Board of Agriculture wan »n"anted In the
original ordinance presented to the Board
of Trustees and indorsed hy the conVmittee
of minister*. • That privilege was taken
away by an amended ordinance introduced
at the instigation of the poolroom owners
and passed -in their interest.
There will be no trouble if the Trustees
are honert and sincere. All that is neces
sary If to do the will of the people and
not of the poohoom gamblers. And the
will of the people is, as it always has been,
that pool selling shall forever be prohibited
in this city, "except on racetracks at such
times as races axe In progress .thereon.". ¦
The way is easy. Ail that is necessary is
to amend the ordinance back to its original I
position. If that is not done and matters
remain as they are, it will become evident
that the poolroom owners are • actlnp the
part of dogs in the manger and that the
Trustees are helping them in that attitude.
If the Trustees repeal the ordinance or
place any license on the poolrooms which
!s not severely prohibitive it will b« a no
tification to any man of ordinary intelli
gence that they prefer to do the, bidding of
th& poolroom gmnblers rather than con
tlnuft to stand v a barrier against the
worst evil that has ever cursed this com-"
munlty. If the State Fair Is injured there
fore the Bee proposes that the blame shall
be placed exactly where It belongs.
One thing should be remembered, how
ever no -matter what happens: Sacramento
can afford to lose the State Fair. She
I cannot afford t# ever again permit the pool- ..
room «iens of vice and crime to flourish in
this community. Nor do we believe that
the citizens of Sacramento will ever again .
tolerate them.- ..
man being the only members present, Mr.
Colvin's appeal was made on the strength
of .his pointer. . Lady C, .having been
awarded the cup offered by the Pacific
Coast Field ' Trials Association for the
best pointer or setter exhibited In the
field trials 'class. J. W. Flynn's pointer
dog- was awarded reserve, and Mr. Klynn
promptly put in a protest against Lady
C.'s win, on; the ground that* the field
trials class is by general usage through
out the United Stales restricted to dogs
that have been placed first, second or
third in some recognized field trials, and
Lady C. had- admittedly not been so
placed. Mr. Colvin's contention was that
the club had accepted without question
his entry and his entry fee for the
pointer in question, and had not inquired
into her qualifications; that the premium
list had stated no restrictions as to eli
gibility, and last, that he had in his pos
session a letter signed by an official of the
club, expressly stating that the only con
dition precedent to entry was that the
dog to be entered should have been pre
viously entered in some recognized field
trial, and that it was not necessary that
the dog should have been placed. It is
probable the meeting will be held during
the first week in July, when the appeal
will be considered.
OUT at picturesque Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park the gentlemen of San Francisco FlycastingClub meet twice a
month to indulge in the gentle pastime of flycastlngr. They are all ardent anglers and know the secrets of every
trout stream, throughout Northern California,- The club was organized about the time of the Midwinter Fair
and has thrived beyond all expectation. The club members /have developed flycastlng to such an extent that
they lead all the world in the art. Walter D. Mansfield holds the world's record for distance, having cast a tiny
fly 133 feet. The greatest cast of the Eastern experts is about 120 feet/ which distance many men here have exceeded. ,
A special gear is used, the line being known as "cosmic tapered.* 1 The average weight of rod used is ten ounces, al
though there is no limit. The length 0f.., the rod is fixed, at eleven feet. Fishing on a stream is on the same prin
ciples, but under different conditions. The largest number of fish are caught at a distance of about forty feet from
the angler. . : ... :'.?:::¦» .. •

of profit to Its shareholders. All the con
cessions which resulted in the recent
combination came from Union Park. In
gleside had nothing to offer other than
the suggestion that if it went out
of .business other men leas con
cerned about the future of the sport
would at once open an opposition park.
The directors of Union Park were, after
considerable argument, induced to see a
chance of reconciling their stockholders*.
With no opposition during the four week*
durii.o which they are to promote the
sport and with nominal expenses during
the succeeding three weeks it was ex
plained to them that their profits would
be greater than if they faced continued
The suit Instituted by the directors of
Ingleside Coursing Park against Chief of
Police Sullivan restraining him from in
terfering with the coursing there haa
been dismissed. This action was taken at
th^ instance of Ingleside Park's attorney,
the case being dismissed without preju
dice. This move was apparently made to
prevent the possibility of an adverse <le
cision being rendered by Judge Murasky.
Had such a decision been rendered it
would have canceled the agreement re
cently entered into under which the two
coursing parks divide dates. There will
be no coursing at Ingleslde Park Tor Uu
next four weeks. They will then promote
coursing for three weeks. When their
turn comes around again at the expira
tion of that time the management expects
to have its proposed grounds in San.
Mateo County ready.
The- coursing at Union Park to-day will
be provided by a 123-dog stake in which
some star performers will compete. The
sport will commence upon the arrival oi
the 10:13 a. m. train. The best dogs ir»
the stake appear to be Palo Alto, Luxor.
Greenhall, Hot Haste. Auckland. Flyiris
Fox. Bad Boy and Herschel'a Pride.

Some the best matches will take place
in the preliminary and first rounds, as a
number of good players have drawn to
gether. S. P. Hardy vs. G. Smith will be
interesting, as Smith always makes a
good showing against a tleverer man. C.
B. Root vs. Alex Stewart will be close,
with the odds in favor of Root. In the
match between R. Hunt vs. Code both
players have the same style and steadi
ness, with Hunt having a little the best
of it. Will Cook vs. Paul Jones will be
the old school $*s.'the new; W. B. Collier
vs. Crowell will be two chums as con
testants, with Collier the favorite. Percy
Murdoch will probably work out to the
semi-finals, where he will meet one of the
Hardys. Robert Whitney will be in the
finals unless there should be a dark horse
in his half of the drawing- — possibly Hunt.
Several of the old players will be" missed
this year, as George Bradshaw, R. Bliven
Harry Weihe. W. C. Routh. Paul Selby,
Harry Dibblee. J. J. Crooks and Dr. Phil

The thirteenth annual tournament for
the tennis championship of the Pacific
Coast will commence at San Rafael to
day at 10:30 a. m. under the auspices of
the United States National Lawn Tennis
Association. Suitable prizes will be pre
sented the winner fend the runner-up of
the all-comers, and . the -winner will play
George'F. Whitney (holder) for the cham
pionship cup on July 4. A consolation
doubles will also be held July 3 and 4 for
those defeated at singles.
The "wise ones" have picked the Hardy
brothers as the winners of the all-com
ers, but whether it will be Sam or Sum
ner opinion is evenly divided. As to
whether either of the Hardys can win
from George Whitney, the champion, is
a different matter. This year's match
will decide the ownership of the cham
pionship cup, as George Whitney and also
tiam and Sumner Hardy have' each two
wins to their credit. . .
