Spirited Contests Before the Butts
at Shell Mon ml.
An Important _an-to-Man Katch Shoot Be
tween Ci m-iani. s cf the National Gnard.
A Sprinting Becord Broken.
Yesterday proved to be a cold, bitter day
lor the marksmen who assembled at Shell
Mound. The wind blew strongly from the
north, causing the rillemen to add a little
extra tremble to their usual nervousness.
Tlie members of the National Guard were
out In force. The Independent Ritles were
present and did their utmost to win the
medals of their c< mpany. The San Fran
cisco Schutzen Yen-in contested for the
medals of that organization, nnd did some
goc_ work. Company A of the Fif.h In
fantry, stationed in Oakland, did some good
By far the most important event of the
day was ihe match shoot between Company
(" of the First Infantry and Company li of
the Third Infantry. The shoot was one of
the most important which has ever taken
place betweeu two military companies of
the Mate. Company C has for a long time
been the undisputed champion of this Coast.
The distinction has been won by a long lino
of harl and successful contests before the
butts. That they are still the champions
they demonstrated by their excellent score
for twenty-five men in the face of the keen
uerther which prevailed.
So keen was the interest manifested in
yesterday's match that almost every com
pany in ihe National Guard was represented
by a member. Colonel Harry, Lieuteuaut-
Colom-1 O'Connor, Rifle-Inspector Diady,
Judge McKinstry, and a large number of
citizens who are interested in rifle matters,
were present to witness the contest, and
were constantly encouraging the marksmen
ana urging them to do their utmost
KXCKI.I F.NT SCOUES.
Captain Klein, who for more than seven
years has commanded Company (', has dune
more fur tbe cause of military rifle shooting
and the formation of contests before the
butts than almost any other mau in Cali
fornia. This company has never been de
le, it'si iv a man-to-man contest for any num
ber "I men equalling twenty or more.
The result of yesterday's shoot reflects
great credit upon both companies and shows
that they contain the men who are capihle
of serving their country when the cause
shall ai ise.
ConiDany C made the excellent score of
1017 points out of a possible 12">0, and aver
age I about >!]., percent C mpany li made
a total >'I 990 points; or nearly so "per cent
lt will thus be seen that the victors defeated
their opponents by -7 points
Captain Kennedy dovs not feel at all dis
conraged by the outcome of the match and
says ne is proud to feel that be has men who
can reasonably hope to equal the champions
iv a shirt lime.. He says that a return
match will soon be haa iv which he hopes to
show tiie champions lu.w a company cau
improve alter a struggle with sucu wortliy
Although Comi any B has been recognized
as a shooting company o:.ly abi lit one year,
they have made wonderful strides iv tlie
art, and they will, no doubt, make a brilliant
record in the shooting world before long.

When the result of the match was an
nounced by Captain Kennedy, declaring
Company C the victors, he proposed three
cheers for the winners, which were given
with a g"od will. Captain Klein then pro
posed a like compliment to his opponents,
which was heartily responded to.
Captain Klein in congratulating the par
ticipants, stated that he hoped such matches
would he of frequent occurrence, as they
tended to better acquaint the members of the
National Guard with one another. While
in this State a shooting qualification is not
necessary for eutry into the National Guard,
it is insisted upon in some of the Eastern
States. In Pennsylvania no citizen cau he
come a guardsman until he is able to make
a certain score before the butts. The Cap
tain believed this was a good law. lie said
one of the most necessary qualifications for
a soldier was to know how to shoot.
The Nationals, composed of Companies G
and C of the First Regiment, held their
monthly medal shoot at Shell Mound and
did good shooting. As this was the final
snoot for the year, each did his best to make
a flue score. Following are the winners:

COURSING AT MBWABX.
The G..ldeu Writ Club'a First Meeting a
Fully ISO of the coursing fraternity at
tended the Golden West's initial meeting at
Newark Park yesterday. The weather was
very hue, the grounds of the park in excel
lent condition nnd tlie hares, almost with
out an exception, equal to any to he found
iv the oueu country, and, as a consequence,
there was scarcely a course run during tlie
day that did not give tlie best possible proof
as to which of the dogs was the best.
The officers ol the day were most atten
tive to their duties, and the judge, Mr.
Grace, gave unbounded satisfaction to all —
losers and w innera alike. At tlie start some
little delay occurred, as the judge's horse
did not arrive, through some mistake, outho
ground till past 11 o'clock, but once Mr.
Grace got in the saddle work went merrily
on without a hitch to tbe fiuish.
Of the dogs in the match the ones that
distinguished themselves mo-t were: Chico
nee Lass (.the winner), Woodside, Catherine
llayes, MisMon Girl, Whip (the rutiuer up),
Ne:ly Biy, Lady llynes and Lily Hynes.
Souieol the courses were really wonderful,
and it was difficult to tell which was the
most admired, tne splendid running, work
ing and staying powers or the dogs, or the
singular flee*— OSa, dodging and " fencing"
tactics of the little bare in his efforts to
escape his unrelenting pursuer*. But of all
the courses run dining the day those between
Catherine Hayes ami Woodside, .Soldier Boy
and Mission Girl, Lady Hyues and Kustick
in the lust round, and those between Nelly
lily and Whip iv the thud round, and then
between Whip and Mission Girl in the fourth
round, were unquestionably the most excit
ing, aud, indeed, many were of the opinion
that there were lew, it any, courses like them
at tho tate meeting at Merced, lt was really
astonishing to see iiow the hares rau in
these trials, and to note how pleased the
?iectntors were when puss succt-eded in
making her escape, as she did on several oc
casions during the. day. W. llaipin as slip
steward, T. T. Brady as flag steward, James
Wren as slipper, Messrs. Edmouds, Carroll
aud O'Conneil as tieid stewards, were on the
alert and performed their vaiious duties
with tact and care. The following is a sum

OAKLAND CA:SOt. CLUB.
Tlte Eleventh Race in tho Contest for the
O. O. C. Tr«>i>hy.
The eleventh in a series of races com
menced last February by the Oakland Canoe
Club, lor its O. C. C. trophy, was sailed
yesterday on the Oakland estuary over a
triangular three-mile course against a strong
northwesterly wind. Iv the first class were
the Jack, W. W. Blow, aud the Gnat, G. A.
Warden; in the second the Gipsy, A. 11.
Blow, and the Whisper, W. W. Morrow.
No third-class boats entered and the start
was made promptly at 1:47 o'clock. Tbe
Jack took the lead from the first aud keut
well in advance of tiie other canoes over the
entire coarse, arriving at the homo stake at
2:40 o'clock, hiving saileu tii? course in 1
hour 3 minutes. The Guat was second to
cross the line, coming iv at 2:40 V., o'clock,
making hor full lime 1 hour t>*-.i minutes.
The Gipny came in third at 2:504, baviug
be--n ou the course Hi. 13ui. 30s. The
Whisper, before the first turn of the second
stake, was far be hind, owing to the short
sails whicli she carried, and was conse
quently withdrawn from the race. As this
race belonged to a second-class entry, the
withdrawal of the Whiapei gave the ra c to
the Gip.-.y. This adds live points to the
forty-nine credited tv the Gipsy in former
races iv this series, and practically settles
the question of awarding the trophy".
The points previously won by tue other
canoes iv this contest are as follows: Mys
tic 40 points. Gnat 34, Whisper 33, Jack 28,
Samp.er 2s, Booita 28.
The twelfth and last race of the series
will be sailed on January Ist aud will be
merely for sport, as the race of yesterday
gave the trophy to the Gipsy, owing to the
fact that not more than five points can be
made at oue race, and the Gipsy has already
scored 54 Doiuts.
The prize for which the club members
have competed so long is a miniature light
house, a very pretty aud usetul oruament in
burnished brass, costing about $100.
A Revival of the limcuni'ii; and Ex
The two hand-ball courts were the scene
of some closely contested aad exciting
matches yesterday. There is at present a
revival of the interest in this invigorating
sport, and a club will soon be formed.

with his two sons for a contest with Hugh
Toner and Thomas McElroy. Collins and
his sons are ready to play Toner and McEl
roy for any sum from £50 to Sl5O a side men
and money to be found at the Union Court.
At M. Butler's court yesterday the most
interesting game was played between Don
ald McGregor and li. Kedman. who won
three games straight from Neil McMichael
and Peter Kenney by the following points:
21 to 7, 21 lo 17 and 21 to IS. The same con
testants will have another match next Sun
William Hyde and George Cady, recent
arrivals from South Dakota, defeated Tom
la Valle and Kod McKiunon three games
straight, and aceeuted a challenge to com
pete with the vanquished team next week.
At Condon's Union Court Stranger and
McDermott were defeated by Crouan and
Malouey two rubs straight, tho points oil
the deciding games being 15 to 11.

John Dillon aud Jim O'Duniiell against
Hugh Toner aud Al Pennoyer. The last
n.eutioued team won the rub by a score of
15 to 13.
A single match for 85 a side was played
hetweeu O'Donnell and P. Kelley, the latter
wiuning by 15 to 14.
In another single contest for a purse of

ing matches will also take place.

AI. 1.. Espinosa Breaks ihe One for One
At noon yesterday a large and interested
crowd of spectators gathered at the Olympic
grounds to watch M. L. Esuino.sa in his sec
ond attempt to break the Pacific Coast
record of 2 minutes 29 4-5 seconds for 1000
yards by Walter A. Scott last May. Espi
nosa's first attempt was made a week ago
yesterday, when he tied the time. He then
announced liis intention of running again
yesterday, and prepared during the week for
the race. Every day he was seen on the
track taking judicious exercise, strength
ening his wind and making more
elastic and firm his muscles. Yesterday
morning he took some very light exercise
only enough to loosen his tendons. At
noon be was at the scratch and at the report
of the starter's pistol struck out in his race
of nearly three-fifths of a mile. His judg
ment of the amount of speed to sustain

In check, was apparent from the first
hundred yards he covered, and that he
would win was the expectation of all. even
of the record-bearer, Mr. Scott, who was
on the grounds. Etpmosa reached his goal

FOR A JiEW SYNAGOGUE.
A Grind Concert ig Given TJndor Favor-
A highly artistic concert Was given last
evening in Odd Fellows' Ball under the aus
pices of several prominent Jewish citizens

nucleus for tlie large sum required. Cautor
S. Philo managed the pleasant affair, and
F. Victor Austin, a young virtuoso, who has
earned well-merited distinction for his
clever performances on the violin in Europe,

strumental music of Senor S. Martinez and
the exquisite rendering of Mendelssohn's
concerto in E minor for the violin, aud Sara

Austin, were genuine musical treats in
expression, execution and high aitistic
merit. Adolf Lado also charmed the au

UNCLE SAM'S MEN.
A Scheme of Competitions for tbe
Examining Officers for Promotion—Enlistment
of Indians for Cavalry and Infantry.
New Signal Co.ps.
A scheme of competitions has been
adopted with the approval of the Secretary
of War to encourage excellence in gunnery
and in the preliminary instruction of indi
viduals and batteries among the heavy
artillery troops.of the army. The princi
pal object of these competitions is by coiu
par'^on of results to impress upon all ofti
ceis, but more especially the battery com
manders, tbe necessity nt thorough individ
ual instruction in the organizations under
their command—the sole means, as declared
in orders, by which infantry troops have
reached their present high degree of pro
fit-ieiu-y in the use of their arm.
There will be three grades of competition
as follows: (1) the buttery competition, (2)
the regimental competition, (3) tlie general
artillery competition. The first will lake
place each year, will be limited to the en
listed men, and will be to determine the
classification of guuners in each battery, as
indicated by the relative excellence of their
preliminary instruction, ascertained after a
competitive examination of the designated
ones, the said examination to be thoroughly
Upon the termination ot each battery con
test tho competitors will be classified as fol
lows: Those who may have received 75 per
cent of the general aggregate maximum
figure of merit will be classified as "gun
ners," of whom there may be three classes
iv each battery. The Brat will be the live
men receiving the highest percentage of the
ag^re^ate figure of merit. The second shall
be the ten receiving tlie next highest and all
others who qualify for classification will
constitute the third claims. First aud second
class guuners will wear suitable insignia
distinctive of the class, as may hereafter he
prescribed. The classification and insignia
wiil be held only during the practice year
next succeeding the competition at wliieh
ihey are won, alter which they must agaiu
be competed for.
At the termination of the second year's
coujpetiliou all iion-coinuiissioned officers of
artillery serving with batteries are expected
to have qualified for classification as first or
secoud clitos guuners. Auy who lail to so
classify by that time, or w ho, having quali
fied shall fail thereafter at any two succes
sive battery competitions to renew their
qualifications, shall be reported to the Ad
jii I ant-General of the army for such action
as the Commanding General of the Army
may ueem pioper. Except in cases where
special circumstances may justify a different
view, such failure will be regarded as a dis
qualification for holding a warrant as a non
commissioned officer of artillery.
After the battery competitions, regi
mental contests will be held, exigencies of
tlie service permitting, at least ouce eveiy
two years, in regiments the stations uf
which are such as to readily permit the
assembling ol the battery detachments they
may be held once each year. The gun de
lacliineiit to represent the battery at the
regimental competition will be composed of
the necessary miniher of non-coiuniissiontd
officers from the first and second class
gunners nnd of the enlisted men who'have
qualified as second and third class gunners.
No battery will be entitled to representa
tiou at the regimental competition uutil it
is able to select a gun detachment cf four

which twelve (including two alternates)

competition and each member ot the de

appropriate and distiuctivo insignia. The
guidon and Insignia will be held only until
the next general artillery competition.
EXAMINING ARMY OFFICERS.
The new system for examining officers
for promotion has quietly gone into effect-
Congress passed a law that the President
should prescribe a system of examination
of all officers of the army below the rank of
Major to determine their fitness for promo
tion, "such an examinatipn to ba conducted
at such limes anterior to the accruing of the
right to promotion as may be best for the
interests of the service." If the officer ex
amined fails to pass, the next below him is
promoted, and after one year the first officer
is examined again. If he fails again he is
honorably discharged with one year's
pay. If physically unfit for promotion
he is retired from the army with
the rank of the grade next above his
own. The Examining Board appointed
under this act lor the Division of the Pacific
was constituted of the following-named:
Colonel William R. Shatter, First Infantry
Lieutenant-Colonel William M. Graham'
Fifth Artillery; Lietitenaut-Colonel Francis
L. Town, Surgeon; Lieutenant-Colonel An
son Mills, Fourth Cavalry; Captain Louis
Jirecheiiiin. Assistant Surgeon ; First Lieu
tenant William 11. Coffin, Adjutant Fifth
Artillery, Recorder, and the follnwing
named officers were ordered to report for
examination: First Lieutenants Frederick
VV. Kingsbury, Second Cavalry; Thaddeus
VV. Jones, Tenth Cavalry; Frank Thorp
Fifth Artillery; James Mcß. Stembe), Nimh
Infantry; John A. Baldwin, Ninth In
fantry; Frank H. Mills. Twenty-fourth In
fantry, anil Second Lieutenant Thomas
Ridgway, Filth Artillery. Before the work
of the board had beeu completed, Colonel
Shatter, its President, was called away, and
Lieutenant-Colonel de Rnssy was ap-miuted
in Ins place, preventing him from proceed
ing to join his regimeut, as it will be neces
sary to finish his work here on the Board.
THE NEW SIGNAL CORPS.
The board convened to arrange the details
of the new Signal Corps has held several
meetings, and its work is about ready to be
submitted to the Secretary. The board is
preparing a list ol officers, who have ex
pressed a willingness to accept a detail with
the new corps, and twenty such applica

from duty with Battery B and ordered to
proceed to Fort Mason for temporary duty
with Battery Mof that regiment. To "pro

tenant J. D. Milly has been removed from
temporary duty at Fort Mason and has re
joined his battery at Benicia Barracks.

A Kay of I.i_lu ou Kecent mysterious
The robbery that occurred on the Lyons
Mail has many sensational features about
it, now that the perpetrator has been iden
tified and his actions traced. It also serves
to let a ray of light upon the robberies that
have been mysteriously happening, and
have called forth a long lineol ingenious de
vices on the part of the persons who were
engaged in tliem. The robbery of a woman
in one of the trains at Monte Carlo is fresh
in the public mind, for it is believed that
she was hypnotized, and as this last crime
was accompanied by a knife thrust it in
dicates that the criminals are prepared
to use either science or force to help tliem
out. It is now thought that the
guilty party in both tbe latest in
stances waa a gambler, who had been fleeced
at Monte Carlo and took this dangerous
means of rehabilitation. In the case of
Thursday two men entered a compartment,
one a French gentleman, by name De Bre
niont, a member of the well-known Parisian
lamily and a near relative of the celebrated
Cointesse Ann de Bremnnt of London. The
other was an Italian, desperate ol counte
nance, but gentlemanly iv attire. As M. de
Bremont tells the story, the train had got
uuder good headway when the Italian sud
denly diew from its sheath a niurderous
iooking knife that be brandisned aloft
and threatened to plunge it into Ue Bre
moiit's vitals if he did not disgorge instanter.
This De Bretiiuut readily prepared to do
and took Irom his pockets the sum of SIOO,
which ho handed over wilh as good a grace
as the nature of the transaction would per
mit. But the Italian waa not satisfied aud
demanded more, and made such elaborate
preparations for De Bremout's death that
the latter forthwith remembered §4000 he
had secreted in an inner pocket and had
been entrusted to him by a friend for the
purpose of buying goods at Lyons. De
Bremont for a moment weighed the friend's
loss aud his owu threatened demise, and
rsulved to sacrifice his friend: so
he handed over the 84000 with about
the same courtesy that he did the hundred.
When he had the money the Italian opened
the door and sprang to the ground. De Bre
mont pulled the bell-rope, the train stopped,
and a crowd of passengers and traiumen
started in pursuit. •They dashed across
fields, ditches and over bridges, not losing
sight of the Italian for two miles, at the end
of which distance he stopped and threw
heavy stones at his pursuers, but one of the
railroad men rushed at him and knocked
him down. He was then bound and taken
lo Valence. The money was recovered.—
Mra. Cnoper'a Bible Claaa.
At the opening of the Bible class yester
day In the First Congregational Church,
Mrs. Cooper spoke of the Christmas festiv
ities of the kindergartens which will occur
the present week. The lesson of tho day
was, "Jesus Made Known." The earnest
discussion of the lesson brought out the fol
lowing points: Christ abides with those
who welcome his presence. The surest way
to secure a blessing is to carry a blessing.
A blessing carried is a blessing had. It al
most always happens that those who carry
good tidings get a greater than they carry.
Those who will be happiest duriug the com
ing festival days are those who will make
the greatest number rejoice.

A Great Event
In one' 3 life is tlie discovery of a remedy for
some long-standing malady. The poison ol
Scrofula is in your blood. Yoor'tnlierited it
from your ancestors. Will you transmit lt
to your offspring? In tlie great majority
of cases, both Consumption and Catarrh orig
inate in Scrofula. It Is supposed to be the
primary source of many other derangements
of the body. Begin at once to cleanse your
blood with the standard alterative,
" For several months I was troubled with
scrofulous eruptions over the whole body.
My appetite was bad, and my system so
prostrated that I was unable to work. After
trying several remedies _ vain, I resolved
1 to take Ayer's Sarsaparlilia, and did so wit
such good effect that less than one bottle
Restored My Health
and strength. The rapidity of the cure as
tonished me, as 1 expected the process to bo
long and tedious." —Frederico Martl Fer
nandes. Villa Nova de C.aya, Portugal.
"For many years I was a sufferer from
scrofula, until about three years ago, when I
began the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, 9ince
which the disease has entirely disappeared.
A little child of mine, who waa troubled with
the same complaint, has also been cured by
this medicine."—H. Brandt, Avoca, Nebr.
