brushed aside by the Chairman, lie under

McComb and Skinner Arrive
From the East.
Choynski and Corbett Will Not Wrestle
at the Olympic Club— Schifferstein's
Eastern Medal— Notes.
The officers of the Olympic Club were
veiy much annoyed yesterday over the re
ports which appeared in some of the morn
ing anil evening papers stating that Joe
oynskland Professor Jim Corbett would
wrestle at the club tins evening. Mr.
llouton was desirous that Tin: Call
should correct the statement, which was
wholly unauthoritative. "The club," said
Mr. uton, "did not dream of having
such an exhibition, and the idea evidently
originated iv the brain of some enterprising
scribe who was pressed fur news."
Next Sunday morning the Amateur Ath
letes who are in training for the Sacramento
games will have several races at the Olym
pic grounds. The distances will probably
be 230 yards, 100 yards aud 50 yards. A big
entry is expected for the latter event, which
will be a scratch race.
M. L. Espiiiosa, the long-distance runner,
is anxious to meet A. S. Henderson in a 100-'
yards' race, provided he is given a handi
cap of ten yards. Henderson said last
evening that he would allow Kspinosa a
handicap of nine yards, provided Walter A.
Scott will act as starter. The consideration
in tlie event of a match being made will be
a handsome medal.
Archie M ■'!.' nib and the speedy sprinter,
Skinner, the athlete who, it will be remem
bered, returned from Australia about a year
ago after winning a big handicap from a
field of 100 starters, arrived last evening
from Portland. The brace of sprinters
have been East, and returned by the North
sen iff ci; -kin.
When Victor Sehifl-rstei-'was traveling
at the East in 1888 as the representative of
the Olympic Club of this city he ran at St.
Louis, and made a wonderful record in a
100-yifrd dash against Murphy, the local
champion. Competent timers who were
selected by the St L'.uis Athletic
.Club gave Schifferstein the credit of
running the distance in 9 4-5 seconds, but
as the track bad a slight decline near the
finish of the hundred, the New York au
thorities and critics refused the Olympian a
recoenition of his wonderful performance.
Schiffersiein proved to the New Yorkers,
however, when he was comoletely out of*>
condition, owing to the excessive heat ol an
Eastern sun and the fatigue of railroad
travel, that he was capable of defeating
their champion sprinters. lie met two of
them in a 100-yard dash and actually ran
away from both until his strength left him
alter covering 80 yards. Schifferstein made
a gallant effort to reach the tape, but not
having the strength to pick un bis sweeping
stride lie was overhauled a few yards from
the tape aud beaten.
A MEDAL THAT NEVER CAME.
Under the auspices of the now defunct
National American Amateur Athletic As
sociation he competed against the champ
ion long-distance jumpers of Xew* York
and easily defeated his opponents, winning
the jump by having cleared 23 feet 1%
inches. For this performance he was to
receive a handsome medal, but that prize
be so much longed for never came. Not
very many months ago the Manhattan
Athletic Club stated openly that it
would assume the liabilities of the
"bur-ted" association, and on hearing
of this Mr. Sci i offers tei wrote to the Secre
tary of the club for information as to how
he could procure his prize. A rather indefi
ite rellly was received by the Olympian,
which gave him, in a roundabout way, to
understand that if ho had any hope of ever
receiving his prize lie would have to visit
New York and play his own cards.
FAKED TO DEATH.
"It Is extremely douhtful if either wrest
ling or boxing will attract public attention
again in this' city," said an old sport to a
reporter yesterday. "1 have noticed the
tlesperate attempts Parson Da vies is mak
ing to create a boom in wrestling, but it Is
uo v-_, the public will nnt take to it"
"Don't you think that the coming contest
between McLeod and Lewis will draw a
biz crowd?" asked the reporter.
"Well, yes," replied Old Sport, "provided
the managers make the entrance fee 10
cents. I wouldn't mind spending half an
hour looking at the farce, but I certainly
would remain away rather than pay half a
dollar to see Lewis exercise liis muscles on
such an opponent as McLeod. Why, this
man Lewis can throw McLeod 1 hi) limes in
an hour if he once Settled himself down to
business. The idea, though, of the men
training and running up mountain sides to
inflate their lungs with pure air is laugh
able. .Veil, l suppose they must live, and
to exist the wrestlers must make money ono
way or another."

THE TOUCH-LIGHT PAItADE.
The Committee on Torch-light Parade,
appointed last Tuesday to take charge of
the night parade to be held on the 6th of
September, met last night at the headquar
ters and effected an organization by the
election of I_. Ilugencamp as its Chairman
ami J. J. Kennedy Secretary.
After a general discussion of tho neces
sary preparations the Secretary was In
structed to communicate with the Veteran
Firemen, Exempt Firemen, California
Parlor Flambeau Club, the Tillicums of
Mission Parlor. Tourists of National Parlor,
the Berkeley University students, anil all

the parade, requesting each to send a rep
resentative to meet the committee next
The Committee on Spacement at the
Pavilion at a meeting last night decided to
have an eight-foot passage-way to the rear
of the booths on the Grove-street side.
This was considered necessary to facilitate
the rapid exit of the public in case of need.
FORESTERS IX COSTUME.
The Ancient Order of Foresters has ex-
I pressed it as its intention to participate in
! the parade. The Foresters' uniform is very
elegant and some members of the order will
be mounted in the parade in costumes of
200 years ago.
The Parade Committee wants every
organization other than those of political
tendencies to send its address to the head
quarters or to its Chairman, Vf, H. Thorn
ley, so that invitations can bo properly sent.
The committee spent several hours last
night in preparing formal invitations.
Preparations for the reception and enter
tainment of thclexecutive officials of llin
State and city are being perfected. It is
now proposed to erect a review stand on
-Market street at Central Park for Governor
Waterman, Mayor Pond and others. This
is to be done, however, by private effort,
and not by the Natives.
The Regatta Committee lias completed
arrangements, classified boats and decided
upon the course for the regatta.
There will be nine boats of the first class,
four of the second, two of the third, four of
the fourth, nine of the fifth and eleven of
the sixth class. The stake-boat will be sta
tioned 200 yards off Mei_gs Wharf, and in

Why a Further Reduction or Rates Was
Not M.ifle for the Sons.
One of the traffic managers of the South
ern Pacific Company was asked yesterday
to give the reasons for the company's re
fusal to make a 50 per cent reduction in
passenger rates during Admission day cele
bration, whereupon he delivered himself as
"The passenger rates of this company
average about 3 cents per mile, with the ex
ception of the mountain divisions. For
short hauls in many of the valleys the rate
is much less. Our rates are lower than
those of tbe New York Central, and the
same coal that costs them S- per ton costs
" In 1887 a general reduction of passenger
rales was made by this company of 25 per
cent. For this coming celebration we have
made voluntarily a reduction of 33% per
cent, and even at this rate we shall lose
money, for to mako up for this reduction
we must increase our travel 50 per cent.
" We are asked why a discrimination has
been made in favor of delegates to political
conventions and Grand Array men. The
rates made for these delegates are limited
strictly to individuals and not given to the
public in general.
"As to the Grand Army.it is true we made
aSO per cent cut. But this reduction was
made before the general cut in 1887,
and even with the half rate given them, the
fare from Los Angeles to this city was 70
more than will be charged passengers com
ing to San Francisco from that point on Ad
mission day, with tho rates only reduced
one-third. This is a hard year with the
Southern Pacific Company, and we are cut
ting down expenses everywhere, and all
things being considered. I think we are jus
tified in refusing to niaku a further reduc

A CIT_ HALL ACCIDENT.
Richard Million Falls Sixty Feet From a
An accident occurred at the new City
Hall yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock which
may cost a man his life through his own
carelessness. Richard Midson, foreman
brick-layer for John McCarty Sr., who ls
sub-contractor for the I.iirkin-street wing,
was working on a scafloldin; wliich broke,
carrying him«nd eveiythiug else on it to
the ground. That" he was not killed out
right seems to have been almost miraculous,
as the distance was over sixty feel.
Midson was at work on an arch to com
plete which he was obliged to have a cer
tain quantity of brick on the scaffolding be
tween himself and the elevator by wliich
the bricks were brought up. According to
the estimates of those present there were
2000 brick, weighing about four tons, on
tho scaffolding when it gave way. Midson*
was picked up insensible and taken to the
druc-store opposite the new City Hall, on
Larkin street, where there happened to be
a physician who attended to the injured
man, who soon revived.
lie was removed to the Receiving Hos
pital, where his injuries were looked after
and properly treated. It was ascertained
that he had suffered a compound fracture of
ttie right tbich, which may necessitate the
amputation of the leg, and also a fracture
of the same leg above the ankle. There
were also two deep lacerated wounds of
the head with the skull slightly indented,
though fortunately not fractured. His
face was also .badly bruised and his eyes
nearly swollen shut, and yet .strange to say
he was perfectly conscious and conversed
freely about the accident, recognizing all
the friends around him. lie Is married and
lias two children and bis home is on the
corner of Polk and Fell streets. SSSh
John McCann, foreman of the work, said
that he had just been on the scaffolding
with the victim of the accident and had
remarked to him that lie thought lie had
about enough brick on tbe scaffolding, to
whicl) Midson replied that he thought lie
required a few more. : While they were
being brought up McCann was called away
to see some one, and so narrowly escaped
the same fate. McCann said that it was not
only, a wonder that Midson was not killed
but that those working under him escaped
injury. In speaking of the matter himself
Midson said ho had miscalculated the
strength of the scaffolding. So far as can be
learned no one is to blame but himself. He
was carefully attended to at the Recelviug
Hospital, and at a late hour last eveuing
was resting easy. ..•-•:

THE PEOPLE'S CHURCH.
Dr. Harconrt Transfers His Lease
of the Temple.
He Accepts a Pastorate in Baltimore—
Church of tbe Advent to Opsn in the
Temple— A Religions Event
Rev. Dr. Hareourt of the Howard-street
Methodist Episcopal Church has deter
mined to leave San Francisco. He has not
yet made the announcement of his inten
tion to bis congregation, and says that be
dreads to do so. Many of bis congregation
labor under the impression tbat all differ
ences between him and the Board of Trus
tees have been healed, and that he in con
sequence would remain as their pastor.
His present determination will cause no
small feeling of surprise among bis fol
lowers, who Have stood by him iv his con
test with the faction which opposed him on
account of what they considered his too
sensational style of preaching. Not only
has he decided to leave bis present pastor
ate, but he has also unconditionally aban
doned his plan of converting the Metropol
itan Temple into a "People's Church." Dr.
Hareourt during the last year had devoted
so much time and thought to this project,
and had even gone so far as to secure a
long lease for the temple, that his abandon
ment of the enterprise will be received by
many of bis flock, especially the younger
element, who were bis principal backers,
with no small degree of astonishment.
'1 hat this is true, however, will be believed
when it is mentioned that Ur. Hareourt has
already transferred his lease ot the Temple
to the Ilev. John Gray of the Church of the
Dr. Hareourt was interviewed last even
ing on the subject of bis departure for
otlier fields, and his giving up of bis cher
THE Tl.Mri.l-- SCHEME ABANDONED.
"It is true that I am about to leave San
Francisco," said Dr. Hareourt. "I had a
prayer-meeting to-night, but I dared not
tell them, lt is hard to part with one's
"Then you have given up your Metropoli
tan Temple project
"Yes. Mv idea was to have a 'People's
Church' there. The temple was only to be
transient quarters, as we would afterward
build a church ou Van Ness avenue. There
was to be a library attached to the church,
a reading-room, music-room and a gymna
sium. It was to be conducted on a thor
oughly organized plan."
"Why did you give it up?"
_ "Acting through the earnest persuasion
of Bishop Fowler 1 have given up the new
church movement. The draft upon the old
church would have broken . its back, for
most of its members would have gone with
me. There was another reason. The
Bishop could not indorse the temple service,
even as the beginning of a new enterprise,
because of its close proximity to Central
Church. If I remained in the temple I
would have to give up my denomination,
and that I would not do. if the new move
ment went on it would disorganize the

"In the interests of peace and harmony in
the church I yielded to the persuasions of
Bishop Fowler and gave up the enterprise.
1 have transferred my lease to the Key.
John Gray of the Church of the Advent,
who will endeavor to carry on a 'People's
Church,' and show that "Episcopalianism
is not alone for the upper classes. 1 wish
him all success in his new move."
"Did the difference between the trustees
of your church and yourself have anything
to do with the abandonment?"
"None whatever. 1 resigned some time
ago, but I was soon alter unanimously
called back. My Bishop also told me to
stay. 1 could remain here as long as I
wished, as 1 have a splendid congregation,
and one I love dearly."
"Then it is true that you are going away
WILL GO TO BALTIMORE.
"Yes. Some time ago I was offered the
pastorate of the Simpson Church of Los
Angeles, which seats '-'500 people, but I re
fused the call, as 1 would not preside over
any other church on the Coast but in San
Francisco on account of the constituency
which 1 have here. I also refused a call to
a church in Albany. Lately I had a call
from Grace Methodist Church, llaltiiuore,
the largest In that city, and you may say
fh-t in nil probability I will accept. 1 also
have a call from the Metropolitan Methodist
Church, Washington. This was Bishop
Newman's old church, where General Grant
used to go for religious service, and where
Senator Stanford also was accustomed logo
during Newman's pastorate. I will accept
one of the two, and probably the former."
A TRIP TO THE HOLY LAND.
"When do you leave?"
"The California Conference does not close
until September, and the Baltimore Confer
ence does not open until March. If I leave
now this will give me a vacation of six
months. I will occupy this lime in a trip to
the Holy Land and Egypt, which I have
long been anxious lo see. Next Sunday I
may probably deliver my last sermon, if I
determine to go to the Holy Laud, as 1 at
Dr. Hareourt scouted the idea that his re
tirement was caused by any factional dif
ferences. Some of his friends told him
that he was making the mistake of his life,
as he had a large popular following here,
and it would take him some time to get the
same in another city. He thought, how
ever, that his best interests called him
away, and having two splendid offers, had
determined to accept one of them.
INDUCEMENTS TO REMAIN.
lt was also learned that a strong pressure
was being brought to bear on Dr. Hareourt
in order to induce him to remain here.
When lie resigned some time ago, it was
stated that lie was offered a call outside of
his congregation. Dr. Hareourt himself
does not deny that recently he was offered
the pastorate of Dr. Barrows' church, the
First Congregational. It is also said that a
Presbyterian church was offered to Dr.
Hagconrt, if he would leave his denomina
tion. Neither does Dr. Hareourt deny that
there has been considerable jealousy be
tween himself anil the pastors of other
Methodist churches, and that this friction
has been very unpleasant, and has hail
some influence In his making up his mind
THE people's CHURCH. •?;"_-
In the meanwhile the Metropolitan Tem
ple scheme of a "People's Church" will
still go on iindcrthe auspices of the Church
of the Advent. This congregation will take
possession of the temple on Sunday even
ing. September 14th, and make it a "Peo
ple's Church." Bishop Nichols heartily
approves of movement, and will open
the temple with an address and sermon on
thatevening. Prominent 'Episcopalian lay
men are in hearty sympathy with the under
The. fact that the Episcopalians, who are
generally considered to furnish church
services for the wealthy, and that a congre
gation with an ornate service like lhat of
the Advent, generally denominated as
"high," should take such a step as this will
excite no little comment. v
A riIOIILEM TO BE TESTED.
It is said, however, that pending the set
tlement of the parochial bounds of the
above-named parish and the building of a
new church, Bishop Nichols, together with
the rector and vestry of the Advent, believe
the present opportunity of securing Metro
politan Temple to be a most favorable one
lor testing the problem of the adaptation of
tlie service of tbe Episcopal Church to the
great masses of the people. It is designed,
by this plan, to have a church where the
rich and the poor cau meet together in com
Among tbe prominent men who favor
and support the plan may be mentioned the
names of Mr. Joseph O. Eastland, Colonel
George 11. Mendell, Mr. James H. Dobin
son, Mr. Livingston Gtlson, General A. J.
Perry, Mr. C. V. S. Gibbs and Mr.-George
W. Gibbs. ■_■'■'■
In addition to this backing, .the Bight
Rev. Bishop Nichols bas expressed bis
ready and earnest desire to aid the move
ment in every way possible, and will onen
the temple himself with a sermon and ad
dress on Suuday evening. September nth.
A LAHOER CHOIII DESIRED.
; Besides this favorable beginning the
vested choir of the Church of the Advent,
under the direction of Mr. James Lewis
Brown, will be increased, if possible, to
seventy-five or one hundred voices, which
of itself would be a very great attraction.
The opening of the People's Church will
be one of the most . important religious
events which bas taken place in San Fran
