and party were met at Davisville this
morning by Colonel J. B. Wright, City
Trustee McLaughlin, the governor's
private secretary, M. R. Higgins, Post
master Coleman and R. R. Harmon,
and escorted to the city. As the train
ran into the beautifully decorated Union
depot at Sacramento, a salute of twenty
one guns was fired, and as the president
stepped from the train, an immense
crowd greeted him. Mayor Comstock
spoke a few words of welcome, and the
party then entered carriages and were
driven to the capitol. Grand Army

Mayor Comstock introduced Governor
Markham, who, after a few remarks,
presented the president, who spoke as
"Governor Markham and Fei.low
citizkns: Our eyes have rested on no
more beautiful sight since we entered
California. This fresh morning, this
vast assemblage of contented and happy
people; this building dedicated to the
uses of the civil government; all the
things about us, tend to inspire our
hearts with pride and gratitude—grati
tude to the overruling Providence that
turned hither after the discovery of
this continent, the steps of men who
had the capacity to found a free republi
can government; gratitude for the
Providence that increased the feeble
colonies on an inhospitable coast, to
these millions of prosperous people who
have found another sea and pop
ulated its sunny shore with
happy and growing people ; gratitude to
the Providence that led us through
civil strife to glory and perfection of
nnity as a people, that was otherwise
impossible; gratitude that we have a
union of free states, without slavery to
stand as a reproach to that immortal
declaration upon which our government
rests; pride that our people have
achieved so much, triumphed over all
the hardships of the early pioneers who
struggled in the face of discouragement
and difficulty more appalling than those
that met Columbus when he turned the
prows of his little vessels toward the
Unknown shore. Amid perils, starva
tion and sickness, here on this sunny
elope of the Pacific, they have estab
lished civil institutions and set up the
banner of the imperishable union.
Every Californian who has followed in
their footsteps, every man and woman
who is today enjoying the harvest of
their endeavors, should always lift his
hat to the pioneers of '49.
"We stand here at the political center
of a great state, in this building where
your law-makers assemble, chosen by
your suffrages to execute your will, in
framing those rules of conduct which
shall control the life ot citizens. May
you always find here patriotic, conse
crated men to do your work. May they
always assemble here with a high sense
of duty to these brave and intelligentand
honorable people. May they teach the
great lesson of our government, that our
people need only such regulations as
-shall restrain the evil-disposed and shall
give the largest liberty to individual en
terprise and effort. No man is gifted
with speech to describe the beauty and
impre3siveness of this great occasion. I
am awed in this presence ; I bow rever
ently to this great assembly of free, in
telligent, enterprising American sover
"I am glad to have had this hasty
glimpse of this early center of immigra
tion. lam glad to be standing at the
place where that momentous event, the
discovery of gold, transpired: and yet.
after you have washed your sand of
gold, after the eager rush for sudden
wealth, after all this, you have come
into a heritage in the possession of these
fields, in those enduring and inexhaust
ible treasures of your soil, which will
perpetually sustain a great population.
"In parting, sir (to the governor), to
you, as the representative of this peo
ple, I give the most hearty thanks of all
who journey with me, and my own,
for the early, continuous, kindly, yea,
even affectionate, attention which has
followed us in all our footsteps through

The president was given three hearty
cheers, and delivered a short address,
thanking the public and saying he had a
renrembrancelof Benicia from very aerly
days. His elder brother, he said, was

Utah expedition, and was afterwards
stationed at Benicia, from where he had
received many pleasant and interesting
letters from him.

Well Known Amateurs and Their Feats of
the Past—The Club Records—The Com
ing Field Day.
Athletics are enjoying a very healthy
boom in Los Angeles at present. The
amateur athletes of this city are a.super
ior class of young men in many re
spects, and the best people in this city
will second their efforts to make the
field day of the Athletic club, the latter
part of this month, a brilliant success.
The Herald this morning is able to
present some interesting data concern
ing past athletic meetings held in this
city, owing to the courtesy of John
Thayer, the secretary of the Los Angeles
Athletic club.
The first regular athletic meeting ever
held here took place in 18S3. Jim Win
ston captured the majority of the events.
He won the 100 yard dash in 11?4 sec
onds ; the mile run in 0 minutes and 7' 4
seconds ; the 120 yard hurdle race in 2i, 1 4 '
seconds, and the running high jump
with the bar at 4 feet 7 inches.
Sam B. Dewey won the mile walk in
9 mm. 15 1 2 sec., and Buxton captured
the quarter mile run in the slow time of
69 seconds.
The next field day was held in 1885.
J. W. Forsythe made his appearance on
the cinder path and captured the hun
dred yard dash in 12 seconds, and the
mile race in 6 minutes and % seconds.
Mcd Spencer won the hurdle race in 23
seconds. Jim Winston captured both
the quarter mile run and the running
high jump. He cleared 4 feet 10 inches
in the jump, and the time for the quar
ter was 64 1 ., seconds. C. F. Lee won
the mile waik in 0 minutes 34 seconds.
In 1880 both the Los Angeles Athletic
and Bicycle clubs gave a meeting. At
the latter meeting there were only two
events for the athletes. Ed. Adams
won the 100 yard race in seconds,
while Harry Fleishman secured the
gold medal in the walk, covering the
mile in 9 minutes. At the athletic
meeting the same year, Maurice Clark
signalized his advent in Los Angeles by
winning the hundred in 11 r a seconds.
J. Winston was again to the front, win
ning the hurdle in %l% seconds;
the running high jump with 5
feet, and the running broad
jump with a mark of 10 feet 2% inches.
George Williamson also distinguished
himself by winning both the quarter
and the mile run, in 64 seconds and 6
minutes 13 seconds respectively.
Quite a number of new men made
their debut in 1887. Robert tiettner
won the hundred in 11 seconds. E.
Jesurun landed the quarter in 60 3-5
seconds, and he also won the mile in
5 :52 1-5, which at that time was the
record for the club. Cooke reduced the
club record for a mile walk to 8 mm. 38
sec. J. Winston again won the hurdle
race in 22 seconds, the high jump with
a mark of 5 feet \% inches, which is
the club record, and the running broad
jump, with a record of 17feet inches.
The only event in 1888 was the 100
--yard run at the bicycle meet. This was
won by Doctor Yates in 11 1 4 seconds.
An entire new crowd donned the
spiked shoes at the meeting in 1889.
The winners in the different events
were as follows : 100-yard, Henderson,
11 seconds; 120-yard hurdle race, E. W.
Hopperstead, 211, seconds;
A. S. Henderson, 55}4 seconds; mile
run, A. D. Taylor,s minutes 13 seconds ;
mile walk, E. C. Andrews, 9 minutes 10
seconds; running high jump, E. W.
Hopperstead, 4 feet 9jS inches, and run
ning broad jump, W. C. Brown, 15 feet
7 3 4 inches.
The above is a resume of the principal
events won at meetings held in this
city. It will be seen that the Los An
geles records are held by the following
One hundred yards, 11 seconds, by
Robert Bettner and Henderson.
One hundred and twenty yard hurdle
race, 21 '4 seconds, by J. Winston.
Quarter mile run, uhK, seconds, by
One mile run, 5 minutes 13 seconds,
by Taylor.
One mile walk, 8 minutes 38 seconds,
by Cooke.
Running high jump, 5 feet 1% inches
by J. Winston.
Running broad jump, 17 feet
inches, by J. Winston.
Very few of the old time athletes will
compete at the coming games. There
will be an unusually large infusion of
new blood. Most of the performers who
attained distinction on the local cinder
path are in Los Angeles and still retain
a lively interest in the sport, al
though it is not probable that
any of the contestants in 1883, 1885
188(5 and 1887 will ever compete again.
J. Winston is married. Sam Dewey is
a staid banker. Forsyth is gaining fame
and fortune as an architect. C. F. Lee
is still engaged in business. Ed Adams
is a clerk at the Hollenbeck hotel.
Harry Fleishman is married, and is en
gaged in the banking business. George
W tlliameon, who owns the Williamson
Mock, corner of Main and Ninth streets
isa yachting enthusiast, although he
would never think of missing a Held
day. Robert Bettner is married and is
living in Chicago. Jesurun, who gained
fame on the cinder oath when a member
of the celebrated Manhattan club* of
New York, is reported to be living at
Mcd Spencer until a lew
w ™, 8 ran the Court Journal.
There should he some Ix>s Angeles
record broken on Decoration day. The
hurdle, running broad jump, and mile
run record should be wiped out.
It will not be surprising if the
record for the hundred and the
quarter is also beaten. The present
generation of athletes have better facil
ities for training and getting into good
condition than the boys who figured in
years gone by. They also exhibit more
inclination to train—a most decided de
sideratum for making good records.
It is reported that Cooke and several
San Francisco amateurs are coming
down for the approaching meeting
San Diego also promises to send up a
couple ot men, and the new Pasadena
club will be represented by a delegation
of their best men.
The sporting editor is in receipt of a
communication from one of the candi
dates for the all-round championship
medal. He very justly claims that the
athletes competing for championship
honors should be suited in the arrange
ment of the programme, and that the
light events should come first, as, for
instance, the hundred yards, etc.
Secretary Thayer was seen in regard
to this matter. Ho stated that the
greatest care would be used in arrang
ing the programme so as to best suit the
majority of the competitors. "I think
that the heavy events should be put
late in the programme," said Mr.
Thayer, "but the committee will not
: arrange the programme until the en
! tries are all in. Then they will be able
j to act judiciously." Dagworth.
They Attract Considerable Attention at
Friday morning the list of Los An
geles dogs, which won at the
San Francisco bench show, ap
peared exclusively in the Her
ald. The following gossip anent the
show was telegraphed to E. F. Kubel,
and was kindly placed at the disposal of
the sporting editor of the Herald:
San Francisco, May 2.
Los Angeles entries to the bench show
are the choicest in the show in some re
spects. The quality of the show on a
whole is equal to that of many eastern
displays. E. K. Benchley's pointer,
Kan-Koo, is the most admired dog in
the show. Every day ladies bring
flowers and leave them at his stall.
Captain Anderson's entries have won so
many prizes as to prove the captain a '
tine judge of dogs. His Collie Laddie is !
the finest dog of the breed ever shown
in California, and the judge says he is
good enough to win any where
and is worth one thousand dollars. Mrs.
Dorothea Lummis's mastiff, Amado,
is pronounced a magnificent animal, and
was only beaten by the grandest mastiff
in America, Ingleside's Crown Prince.
Chris Kremple's deer hound Cervus is
said by the judges to be tho finest they
ever saw. In the fox hound class Cap
tain A. B. Anderson swept all before
him with Yoicks and Snap. Godfrey
Fritz has a great English setter in Prince
Charles, but there were even better ones
in the cla s, which was one of the finest
in the show. John Machell's Gordon
setter Nun got a first prize. Cap
tain Banning scored a great triumph
with his Irish setter, Macß. R. L.
McKnight's Chesapeake bay dog Laddie
always has a crowd of duck shooters
about him, and won easily. C. A. Sum
ner's fox terrier, Blenton Vesuvian, was
beaten, but most people thought lie
should have won. The show closes to
night. The managers appreciate the
spirit shown by the Los Angeles men in
coming so far. E. K. Benchi.ey.
AN ALLK(.EI) clue.
A Boston Man Professes to Know Some
thing About the Bamaby Case.
Boston, May 2. —The Herald pub
lished a story this morning in connec
tion with the Barnaby case, of a man
who claims to have seen another man,
closely following the description of Dr. !
Graves, mail a package, which was
marked "Denver." in the Boston post
office March 30th. The Herald's in
formant was taken to Providence and
shown Dr. Graves, whom he identified
as the man he saw at the postoffice.
It has been demonstrated that the
man who said he remembered the date
of the mailing of the mysterious pack
age, by an important letter he sent that
day, did not mail his letter March 30th,
but April oth, so his story of a man af
fixing stamps to a Denver package March
30th seems to be lacking in consistency.
Weather Crop Bulletin.
Washington, May 2. —The weather
crop bulletin says: Ihe weather during
the past week was specially favorable
for all growing crops throughout the
grain regions of the northwest and cen
tral valley. Excessive sunshine and
warm weather favored farm work, and
early sown wheat in Minnesota and Da
kota is in excellent condition. Light
frosts, which occurred during the week
in the central valleys, did not prove in
jurious. In the winter wheat region
all crops are reported in excellent
condition. Wheat and grass are
growing nicely, and much corn
has been planted. Oregon reports
normal weather conditions, and wheat
prospects are most excellent. No
damaging frosts have occurred, and all
the fruit trees are heavily laden. Colo
rado reports that rain is needed. Corn
and potato planting is well advanced,
and fruit is in splendid condition. Cali
fornia reports that high winds and hot
weather damaged the wheat crop mate
rially in the latter part of the week.
Frost in the coast counties slightly
damaged iruit prospects. Haying is in
progress in Southern California. Pros
pects are good.
The Coos Bay Trade.
Portland, Ore., May 2.—The Coos
bay steamer subsidy is so nearly raised
as to insure its success, and a steamer
will be put on at once. In consideration
of a subsidy of $17,000 the company will
put on a steamer between Portland and
Marsh field. The steamer is to have a
carrying capacity of 500 tons, and make
weekly trips. This is the first effort of
Portland merchants to secure the Coos
bay trade, which goes now to San Fran
cisco mostly.
Cleveland In Default.
Chicago, May 2. —In the district
court, today, ex-President Grover Cleve

Associated Press Dispatches.
| London, May 2.—The naval exhibi
j tion on Chelsea embankment was
opened today with great ceremony, the
prince of Wales presiding at the opening
ceremonies. He woie the uniform of
an admiral of the British navy. The
entire passageway, an eighth of a mile
long, leading to the spot from which
the prince of Wales declared the exhibi
tion open, was lined by celebrated naval
and military officers, to the rear of
whom a 6trong force of blue-jackets and
marines presented arms as the royal
party passed. The prince and princess
of Wales were conducted to a dais, after
which the archbishop of Canterbury
came forward and uttered a prayer
for the success of the exhibition, the
prosperity and peace of the country and
the health of the royal family. The
prince of Wales then replied to
the address of the officers of the ex
hibition, after which the princess of
Wales turned a tiny switch in front of a
miniature model of Eddystone light
house. There was a flash "from the top
of the lighthouse, a cannon shot from
one of the model men-of-war in the
grounds, bands played God Save the
Queen, and the exhibition was formally
declared open. It covers an area of
over fifteen acres.
The model of Eddystone lighthouse is
lighted by electricity to the extent of
half a million candle-power. The model
is built of a framework of iron, covered
with American expanded wire, over
which cement is laid. The tower part
is used for an exhibit of lighthouse and
signalling apparatus, while the top,
reached by elevators, affords a good
One of the most interesting features
of the exhibition is a full-sized model of
Nelson's famous flagship Victory, fur
nished throughout with guns and ac
-1 coutrements of Nelson's day. On the
1 lake it is proposed to give each day a
mimic naval battle between min
iature ironclad men-of-war, including
torpedo attacks, sub-marine mines, fire
works, etc. In the arena sailors will
give exhibition drills, and the handling
of naval machine guns will be shown.
The main exhibition building is di
vided into nine galleries, each named
after some celebrated sailor.
There are interesting collections of old
naval relies and relics of various Arctic
exhibitions, and the art section contains
the finest collection of naval pictures ever
brought together. There are hundreds
of models of old and new warships, and
innumerable charta of ancient and mod
ern ships are hung on the walls of the
galleries. Varieties of ordnance and am
munition of all kinds are exhibited.
Among the naval curiosities which
may be seen in the exhibition, are Cap
tain Cook's waist-coat; a washstand
used by Nelson at sea; the figure head
of the Shannon, carried on that ship
during the memorable encounter with
the Chesapeake; the Duke of Edin
burgh's curious collection of Bilver ships ;
a portion of the main mast of the Vic
tory, pierced by a shot at the battle of
Trafalgar, and many other relics.
One gallery is devoted to trade exhib
its and exhibits from different naval
charities. Then there is another devoted
to models ot" vessels, from the time of
i the Great Harry down,with illustrations
|of boat-lowering and life-saving appar
| atus now in use ; another is devoted to
ancient and modern ordnance, including
the very latest quick-firing guns. The
Caniperdown gallery contains chiefly
dynamos and air-compressing machines
for working torpedoes, and an immense
glass diving tank, and a large collection
of iron and steel armor plates.
The profits of the exhibition will be
given to various naval charities.
