The freshman team in their first contest
with the Berkeley High Schol on Tuesday
last showed themselves far from being a
finished team. Largely owing to an ignor
ance of signals, a great deal of fumbling
occurred and little approach was made
to anything resembling team work.
The training table for the varsity squad
will be opened on Monday. Coach Whip
pie and Assistant Coach Womble will
soon commence an evening 1 class of black
board instruction for the freshmen.
"Locomotive" Smith is a fixed quan
tity at right half. For fullback Whippl*
seems the most promising candidate, un
less some unexpected material is de
veloped from the freshman team.
The backs are still in an unsettled con
dition. At left half Graves, the star back
of the '04 freshman team, is making Mini,
the regular varsity man, work hard to
keep his position. He is a much heavier
man than the little veteran of last year's
team and consequently is a much stronger
man on the defense and is not so easily
thrown back when carrying the ball.
Overall, Stow and Stroud seem fixtures
at the center positions. For Quarterback
Sherman is being tried out as a substi
tute for Johnny More in case he should
For the vacant left end Clark and
Brown, the sprinter, are both putting up
a good claim. Clark, notwithstanding the
weight of 185 pounds he carries, is fast on
his leet and gets down the field on kicks
in excellent style. Brown is a lighter
man and has the advantage of long train
ing en the track.

players, HarUme and. Freshman Middle

to the big guard, Stow, makes that side
of Die line well nigh impenetrable.

rudiments of the game has all been com

The prospects for a strong freshman
team are considerably brighter than for
a victorious varsity.
Probably the hardest position to fill in
the Stanford line-up win be that of left

the strongest point in the Stanford line
this apparently will become the weakest.

Traeger and Slaker, the best three players
on the cardinal eleven, will not be in the
game, in addition to them Hill, Roose

about two weeks.

man's crippled, aggregation of baseball
players met with an awful drubbing at
the hands of the Sleuths to-day. Despite
the amateur sound of the score, the game
was interesting from start to finish, with
lots of hard hitting, fast base running
and mouthy, scrapping. Graham occupied
the box for the Oaklands at the start
and had an off day. He was wild, and
was relieved by Cooper, who also was
hit hard, allowing eight hits in the last
inning. The work in the outfield was fast
on both sides, and Casey's jump Into the

Sleuths Score Twenty-Two Buss in

The only run made by the Ponies came
to them as a. big surprise package in the
sixth. .Whalen -drove a neat two-base hit
out into right. The ball hit Just inside
the line. Shay scored Jimmy by making
a hit out into Lawlor's territory.
Morley's men got their last run in the
ninth. Jackson worked Whalen for a pass
to flrst, went to second on a passed ball
and was sacrificed to third by Wheeler.
He came . home when Toman bunted In
front of the plate. Leahy got the ball,
but too late to catch Jackson.

A couple of errors In the fourth inningr
gave the visitors their second tally. Roach
hit a fly into short left, which "Williams
muffed after a hard run. Lawlor aimed
at three that looked good to* him and took
his seat again on the bench. Jackson hit
an easy one to "Whalen, *<irho threw to
Shay at second to head off Roach. The
ball was right in Shay's hands, but he
made an error that a schoolboy would
blush to own. Wheeler hit one toward
Nordyke, who made little effort to get it,
as he thought it was going foul. He had
another, think coming, however, as th8
ball rolled away out into right field and
ali the way it was but a few inches in
side the foul line. ,-It was a lucky nit for
the big pitcher and scored Roach.
,Wheeler, Morley's new pitcher from
Syracuse, made his debut on the local
diamond. As far as physique is concerned
he is more fitted to hold down the posi
tion of center rush on a varsity eleven
than to play baseball. Despite his bulk
he made a favorable Impression by his
work in the box. He moves with agility
and has good control. He issued no
passes, but the locals found him for eight
hits. Had they been a little faster in the
base running and a little more careful In
holding their bases they would have stood
more show to win the game.
Before the Ponies got their eyes well
open" In the flrst the Angels had scored
one. The flrst man up. Toman, was given
a free pass by Whalen. . Raymer advanced
him to second on a safe hit in front of
the plate. Dillon, Morley's tall first base
man, who is clever with the willow, hit a
fierce one to Danny Shay, who gathered
it in but made a poor thro* to Phyle to
catch Toman. Phyle did not get the ball
in time to tag the speedy little shortstop,
and there were three men on bases. Han-
Ion hit to Burns, who threw to the plate
and Toman was forced out. Charley Reil
ly drove a long, high one to Tacks Par
rott, and Raymer scored on the catch.
ised the baseball fans he left be
hind that he would win five out of the
six games he was scheduled to play with
the Ponies. It appears likely he will ac
complish his purpose, and unless Harris'
men stiffen their pace to a considerable
degree he will take the entire series. The
orange harvesters won their third straight
yesterday from\th.e Ponies by a score of
3 to 1, and they "did not have to bestir
themselves much to do It, either. "When
ever they had men on bases all they had
to do was to wait and some unfortunate
Pony would let one slip through his fin
gers or make some other break that
would allow a man to score.

he has done for us !
Was he nof the Moses that guided this club
literally through the bulruslfts where It was
nearly swamped? x
And now with both age and ancestry dis
posed of, we'll investigate his club record.
He was elected president of the Olympic
Club in 1886. 1387 and 1888.
He then retired, but on" petition of 11C0 mem
bers again took office in 1890, 1891 and 1892.
At the beginning of his Incumbency he found
the club without funds, in debt, and with a
nominal membership of 1000, but an actual
membership of only 400. In ISO! and 1802
he "raised the devil," and incidentally the
membership to 2500; built the new clubhouse,
and introduced' salt water to the members who
have never since been "fresh."
REDUCED THE OLD DEBT.
At the end of 1892 he again retired, but in
1899 accepted office on petition of 1000 supposed
members. . .
He returned to find the actual membership
800 and a standing debt of $30,000 which he
knocked down, with six months' bills unpaid
and the building Itself — particularly in the
bathing department — "rotten."
He wiped out all "dead heads," spent $40,000
in Improvements, paid off all current bills and
reduced the old debt from $30,000 to S15.000.
And now he is planning a lot of Improve
ments: a new elevator, new Turkish reclining
room, new solarium, a new dining-room and a
new bill of fare.
The membership is now 1606.
Mr. Harrison has requested me to state that
for the last three years his efforts have been
most ably seconded by his fellow directors —
which I suppose means that if there are any
more "old things" in the way of testimonials
going around, some of us would like to be re
membered. Judge Hebbard would not mind
having a silver gavel. Nor would .Mr.-Bams
dell mind having an oil painting by Messonler
of the Bullock & Jones building. The elevator
man would like a "lift" of some kind; and the
hall porter - a permanent ¦ chairmanship. Mr.
Van Court,' the boxing "instructor, would like
• a- koW •"match" box. and . Mr. Mehlinjr, the
Instructor of wrestling, "a silver "double cross."
As ] for me. if there is anything left over, I
would not mind a "Dutch treat."
When this testimonial was first planned
some one suggested a. loving. oup large enough
to permit a aio apiece for the friends who
would drink his health. Shreve,' however, who
was asked for an appropriate design, ssnt back
a drawine of a Greek bathtub as the only
classic utensil which would possibly hold all
the toasts, or contain enoush to give each one
a sip to all his friends. Then again objection
was made to a cup on the ground that ' Mr.
Harrison had already the best-known "mug"
on the Pacific Slope.
Nevertheless, I say to you all that if you
follow Harrison you'll ;jet honor, get glory, get
medals, but you won't get fat.
President Harrison was visibly affected
by the kindly tribute paid him by his fel
low club member and lifelong friend. He
thanked the members of the club In his
usual whole-souled, sincere style; and
then proceeded to have his little friendly
fun with Mr. Oelrichs. The complete pro

achieved perfection, and the grizzly bears in
their eager absorption of his precepts, forgot
how to climb trees.
I do know, however, that he was on Inti
mate terns with Augustus ' Caesar and his
noble spouse Llvia. In fact, I know that- he
sot up some very magnificent Olympian games
for the delectation of. this noble couple- and
friends. As the aforesaid Augustus Cae
sar lived sixty-three years before the Christian
era "and his reign extended some fourteen years
into it, it is hard to -get at Mr. Harrison's
age. No doubt, however, he has brought down
with him from that era and Imbued us with
that taste for the classics and athletics for
which the Augustan age was Justly famous.
It is rumored that when he came through
the Golden Gate, Mount Hood had not yet
risen from the sea; Mount Shasta, for many
years since covered with snow, still had its
piny top-knot, and Tamalpals had not yet
Man is unlike woman- ln'manjr respects and
one lsthat he-carea nothing: about having his
age known, and therefore I am not afraid to
talk about Mr. Harrison's age — but — whatever
It Is, he doesn't look It!
But now I must proceed to the pleasant duty
assigned to me of Introducing to you — fancy
introducing to you one whenv you know as
well as your A B C's — "UJlllam Greer Harri
son. May he have a Iong*lif9 yet before- him.
No one' knows how long a one he has be

LIVED IN CAESAR'S . DAYS.
And, while I am speaking "de mortuls,"
there is another whom I ,wlll mention on this
occasion who has lately left us. A pillar of
this institution — and one of Its founders. A
generous subscriber to the funds of the club.
A man who carried his purse in the pocket
where most men have their pistols, and who
never cared to look behind him to see how
much was taken or by whom.- His charity was
like his heart — great and silent. I refer to
John "W. Mackay.
I am even nattered to a greater extent in
being asked to speak on this occasion when
It was Intended another should address you,
one whose shoes In that respect I am not able
to fill. I refer to one known to you all for
his genial and lovable qualities; a great ora
tor; one of the most prominent men of this
city and club, but who, alas, has been .called
to join the "silent majority." A man who,
perhaps, had he not left it until too late to
follow the advice prescribed by the euest of
the evening, might be with you In my stead
to charm you with his oratory.
I refer to the late lamented General W. H.
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: Per
haps at some time in my past existence. I may
have imagined that I had been complimented
and honored, but surely to-night It is no
Imagination. It is a reality, and a flattering
one, for no man could be more honored than
I have been in being permitted to address this
convention of fair women and brave men, of
beauty, brains and brawn, assembled here fpr
a specific purpose; which is to honor him
whom we delight to honor.
TRIBUTE TO 'THE DEAD.
Upon the stage with President Harrison
and Hermann Oelrlchs.who made the pre
sentation speech, sat the board of direc
tors of the club and prominent members.
The beautiful silver service which the
members united in 1 purchasing as a fitting
tribute to President Harrison's faithful
and valuable services in behalf of the
club was placed, on a large table in front
of the stage and in full view of the « great
audience. Judge J. C. B. Hebbard opened
the programme by. introducing Hermann
Oelrichs as the orator of the- evening.; Mr.
Oelrichs' speech was replete with keen
v.-it and provoked much merriment. He
joked President Harrison . about his "age
and his peculiarities. When he finished
Mr. Harrison had an inning. He took up
many of Mr. Oelrichs' fun provoking wit
ticisms and gave them a double-edged
significance much to the amusement of
the autlience and more so to Mr. Oelrichs
who seemed to enjoy having the tables
turned on him by the keen witted presi
dent. Mr. Oelrichs said: • ¦ .
Post street last night to pay a
fitting tribute to William Greer Harrison
for his long and valued services as presi
dent of the organization. President Har
rison's work -was fittingly recognized by
complimentary speech and .by, the pre
sentation to him by the members of the
club of a handsome and costly silver
service. The gathering was one of the
largest and most fashionable seen in the
clubhouse in years. The stage, the gal
leries and the walls or the gymnasium,
where the presentation ceremonies took
place, were beautifully decorated with tho
national colors, with bunting and with
symbols of athletic sports.
THE members of the Olympic
Athletic Club, their families and
their sweethearts and friends
gathered in the big clubhouse on
Collis next had the mount on Matt
Hogan, which opened favorite for the
seven-furlong number. The paddock con
tingent unloaded on Windward, causing
that horse to be sent to the post favorite.
As the race was run Matt Hogan showed
that he was much the best. Collis was
compelled to pull up at the start, and
then, circling his field, downed Montana
Peeress and Windward without much dlf
Billy Randall's fast filly Midlove, a 2 to
1 second choice, made the pace from start
to finish in the closing sfx-furlong- spin.
At the close Dolly Weithoff came very
fast, but Midlove was awarded the de
cision in the closest thing of the day. The
show ¦went to Jim Gore.

Malaspina, at 1 to 2, looked a false fa

good portion of the trip, eventually ran
unplaced. Ike Tullett, on Our Pride, the

after assuming command in the stretch,

little llorinel seems desttned- never
to wear another set of winning brackets.
She shook oft Gibraltar finally, in the
mile and a sixteenth run and then, when
challenged by the 7 to 10 favorite, Nellie
Forest, with Collls up, lost the verdict
by a nose. The winner opened- equal
choice with Morinel and was backed down
under the weight of a very extensive play.
Frank Woods closed strong, finishing
third. - ¦
"W". O'B. Macdonough's colt Orosius, at
odds of 1 to 4, outclassed the other start
ers in the maiden two-year-old dash.
Ransch had the mount, and, getting away
in the lead, Orosius won, throwing the
bit away. Katanga, the Spreckels entry,
took the place just as handily from Le
EASY WIN FOR OEOSIUS.
Nine platers started in the first run, a
seven-furlong selling affair. Frank
Pearce, the 4 to 5 ¦ favorite, clearly- and
easily outfooted La Borgia and won gal
loping from Alado, a 15 to 1 shot. La
Borgia was third.
The attendance was small • compared
with the crowd of yesterday, but the bet
ting if anything was livelier. Favorites
took both harness numbers and were suc
cessful in two of the running races.
It is too bad that 20,000 spectators could
not have witnessed the great 2:18 class
pace. They would have gone delirious
over it. In three heart-breaking, nerve
destroying, bike-racking heats Penrose
was returned an easy winner. By dint of
great perseverance Farrar, behind Al
ford C, twice finished second and once
third. N. L. B. came home third twice
and in the last heat finished second. In
disgust Nance O'Neil refused to pace
longer, getting the flag in the second
heat. At the start ' of the betting the
"educated" set gave 10 for Penrose, the
mutes paid 10 for Alford C and the blind
5 for the field. Later, when everybody
ran cut of matches, Penrose sold for 10,
Aliord C 5 and the field for anything in
WAGERING IS LIVELY.
when Petigru failed to appear as a
starter in the ?500 special for 2:11 class
horses. Cozad, Alta Vela and Vic Schel
ler were the only ones to score down for
the word. The -first named horse, driven
by Charles E. Clark, the Fresno horse
man who campaigned Toggles with such
marked success, sold a lu to 4 favorite
and won three straight heats in hollow
fashion. It was expected that Petigru
and the winner to-day would have a re
newal of their battle commenced at
Woodland two weeks ago, where Petigru
proved the victor by getting a decision
he was not entitled to. The meagerness
of the purse offered was no doubt re
sponsible for the decision of W. G. Dur
fee in not starting his horse. Only a few
days ago a $600 consolation purse was
hung up for horses eligible to the 2:30
class, and if horses capable of trotting
In~3:iO are not worth more they should
be turned out into the alfalfa patch. This
Is one reason why the fast ones are all
shipped to the other side of the Rockies.
Cozad showed to be in fine shape to-day,
as his easy mile in 2:15Vi will illustrate,
and it would have taken a great horse to
lower his colors.

night In one of those whirlwind flghta
for which the San, Francisco Athletic
Club Is noted. '. . ' .
When the men entered the ring Koster
was as finely drawn as a greyhound,
while Long seemed fat. The latter proved
tho better boxer from the start: He
scored the most points In the first round
end followed up his advantage lri the sec
ond round. He knocked Koster down
near the end of the round, the bell sav
ing him from being knocked out.
Long missed some fierce uppercuts in
the third. The fourth v/as a regular
rough house affair. First one and then
the other had 'the advantage, until it
seemed ono of them must go out. Each

leet at the bell. Long was given the deci
sion on points.
