A Meeting of the Sportsmen's
Wonderful Performances of an Irish Athlete.
Lawn Tennis at Los Angeles— What
the Pugilists Are Doing.
The Sportsmen's Protective Association
met last evening at K. 1- 15. Hall, with
Levy Peck in the chair.
Now that the open season for quail and
other game birds is almost at baud the
question of railroad accommodations for
dogs was discussed at length.
On all of the roads leading from the city
with the exception of the Southern Pacific,
sportsmen are permitted to carry dogs in a
car especially attached to the regular trains
on Saturdays and Sundays for the accom
modation of hunters.
On the Southern Pacific a new rule has
been established this year which states that
"nil dogs must be placed in the baggage
car, aud that the baggage-waster will take
charge of them."
Tin* sportsmen object to this rule on the
ground Hint animals afflicted with contagions
diseases are kenneled with valuable dogs,
many of which have been imported from
the Eastern Stiles and England at great ex
pense. As the Southern Pacific is largely
patronized by the lover-, of field sports dur
ing the limiting season, it was thought that
measures ought to be taken by the company
to prevent dogs sufferiug from distemper
and other dangerous ailments intermingling
with valuable canines.
The strange actions of the State Fish and
Game Commissioners in thinning cold water
on the charges brought against Patrolman
Calliiiiil.iu by Thomas Tunstead were freely
commented upon, and the President was re
quested to communicate with the Governor
on the subject. The Commissioners were
to have held a meeting yesterday, but none
of the officers put iv an appearance at the
customary place of meeting, lv all proba
bility they are still engaged in a search for
Information which may throw some light on
the recent scandal, when a public investiga
tion will be held.
After some desultory discussion on gen
eral sporting matters the meeting adjourned.
A letter which wit. ' received yesterday by
a member of the Scottish Thistle Club states
that George McGregor, who for years has
been well known as the champion quoit
player of England, died at his residence,
South Shields, on August 13th.
The New York Sun of August 27tfa says:
Hilly Fit— simm ns, the Australian middle
weight; will arrive in San Francisco from
New Orleans to-morrow morning. He will
at once hold an audience with the principal
Director of the California Club, and the
subject of a purse for a tight between him
and Jack Dempsey will be discussed. The
Sun I- pretty good authority on sports pu
gilistic, but this time it shot over the mark a
couple of inches, as Hilly lias not yet put in
an appearance, and the California Club is
not expecting his arrival just yetawhile.
PREP— RING FOB TIIE CONTEST.
The athletes of the Sacramento Athletic
Club, who will measure strides with the
Olympic boys on the fair grounds of Sacra
mento, are taking every opportunity to train
for the contests. A Sacrament. . exchange
says that fully thirty athletes participated
in the trial spins Held last Sunday at East
Park. The first trial was a 100-yard dash,
which was participated in by Charles
Bauer, T. Measure, William Johnson,
Frank Welch and William Newbert. It was
by far the best race of the day. Professor
Godefroy, who acted as a starter, gut them
off well together, and for fifty varus it was
anybody's race. Toward the finish, how
ever, Bauer and Newbert forged ahead, and
ran a dead heat to the tans. The time of
Bauer and Newbert was 11% seconds.
beveral other races were run over the
same course by other members, bat, although
some of them were close and ex citing, the
time was not quod.
Newbert won the 220-yard trial in i" I ,^
seconds, with the others all in a bunch be
Between the races shot-putting and jump
ing were indulged in, aud, at the con
clusion of the trials, a game of base-ball was
A FAMOUS IRISH ATHLETE.
The name of Patrick Davin is quite fa
miliar to the athletes of England and Ameri
ca. As an all-round amateur athlete he was
without a peer, and lor years he has held tile
championship of the world. Davin, who is
now S3 years of age, will not he seen on the
cinder path again, as he has permanently re
tired from athletic sports. The great Irish
athlete stands six teet, and in running cos
tume lii- weight was about 126 pounds.
There is net 'ling unusual in his physique,
and he may be described as a till,
strong, slender, wiry man. If it were
nut for his great records in vari
ous games his physique would be
thought nothing of. lie made his first
appearance in athletics twelve years ago in
games at his native place, Carrick-on -Suir,
and he soon developed into an athlete of un
common all-round ability. On July 6,1880,
be inane a world's record for a running
high jump at Carrick-on-Suir, clearing ti feet
2% niches, which stood until Page beat it,
ami the following year he made a visit to
England and won the running high and
running broad jumps at the championships
at Birmingham, clearing b' feet 1 inch and —J
feet 11 inches respectively. The run for the
latter, however, was down hill, but be de-
sled England's best men, aud one notice
able feature in the competition was that five
men cleared over 22 feet. lie also took part
in the 120-yard hurdle race and finished
fourth very close up. in 1883 be essayed to
beat the best record for the running broad
jump, 23 feet V/ 2 inches, held by J. Lane,
which hud stood lor nine years, and at Port
Arlington. September 13th, he cleared 23
feet 2 Inches, which still stands as the best
British record. He competed rather in

when the first all-round championship of that
country was given. He won this event, ami
since that year be has not been beard from
in active competition.
A glance at his records reveaLs the follow
ing: Running high jump, ii feet 2% inches;
running broad jump, -' feet 2 inches; 120
--yard hurdle, 3 feet ii inches high, 10 2-5
seconds ; 100-yard run, 10 2-5 seconds; put

lie has done nothing wonderful at any
kind of standing jumping, the running hop,
step and jump, pole ting, or middle dis
tance running. When he has jumped from
a stand he generally has used dumb-bells,
but no large figures arc credited to him. fie
has generally been spoken of in Irish
journals as being an exceptionally fast
sprinter, and has been given good figures in
his native country for a 100-yard run. but
bis fondness for all-round work probably
prevented his considering himself good
enough to compete with the best men in this
event, for his numerous wins are easily
traced in other events, while he never scored
a victory in a .sprint out-He of Ireland.
In nil his athletic performances he exerted
great force. When clearing in the neigh
borhood of i. feet for a high jump he would
cover between 15 and Hi feet in distance.
He cleared the bar with his I oily and head
almost erect simply gathering his feet under

hard run, anil in his hurdle racing lie cleared
an unusually long distance over each
Dublin Sport of August nth brings the in
formation that he Is to retire from the ath
le'ic arena and that a testimonial should lie
given him. in reviewing his career Sport
says: "At home he was for several years
invincible in jumping and hurdle-racing,
while he was one of our fastest sprinters on
the Hat and a capital weight-putter. After
establishing a world's record in the lung
jump in l*s;; he retired with his well-earned
laurels. For five long years his honored
name never appetred among those of the
competitors, and so things would have re
mained but for Davin's patriotic response to
the call of duty. This was in 1888. when
Ireland was visited by a team of the picked
athletes of America and the old country
sought about for her best sons to uphold her
haulier in an all-round contest. Fust in the
field was Pat Davin, who didn't hesitate to
risk the defeat which is the almost invari
able result of protracted retirement, nor did
be pause to reflect that defeat would tarnish
bis almost unci'iialed reputation. It was
enough ior Davin that Ireland wanted a
champion and off came his coat."

members gradually, bet-rune tired of the
sport ami one by one they dropped out until
the club faded away, like a beautiful dream,
into oblivion. The i—st straw to break the
club's link yy'.is the large flood of a year ago,
which swept the aquatic landmark in parts
unknown. The interest manifested among
the oarsmen of this city to ; bring aquatic
sport into prominence again has made itself
felt among the young men of Sacramento,
who held a meeting a few evenings ag > with
the intention of reorganizing and rejuvenat
ing the old club. The meeting was Quite
large nnd resulted in the : formation of a
new club, which, it is thought, will eclipse
in point of Strength the defunct organization.
Notices have been seat to many ,of the old

The Normal School opened for another
term this morning, and Principal Childs anil
his assistants were busy people until this
f ternoon, when the entire school machin
ery was in successful operation.
In a talk with Principal Childs it was
learned that 67 pupils were admitted upon
diplomas, without examination. This is an
uuusnally large number and sho ws that the
county board has been more than usually
active in preparing pupils for admission to
Out of the 120 pupils examined 40 only
were admitted. This is a smaller percent
age than that of past years, and is due to
the fact that the standard for admission has
been raised considerably.
From the training department thirty pupils
were admitted by promotion.
The old pupils have nearly all returned,
and it is estimated that the attendance to-day
is over 500,
Besides that number there arc 221 pupils
in the training department, and every seat
No students will be received after to-day.
This afternoon- everything was running
itloiii! smoothly, all assignments to classes
having been made and the pupils pursuing
their studies with customary regularity.
The building is crowded and many will
have to be refused admission
At the next meeting of the Legislature a
bill will be presented asking for an appro
priation of $60,000 to build an addition to
the rear of the present structure, one suit
able to accommodate the entire training
