A Los Angeles Boy breaks a Record. E. C. Van Dyke Wins the Pole Vault, Nomad Makes His First Start and Rnns Second. Naieho B. and John Treat Win at Oak land—A Fast Hnidle Racer and a Good Mile Runner. ' ' A Los Angeles young gentleman dis tinguished himself yesterday at the University sports*. E. C. Van Dyke of this city won the pole vaulting contest, clearing the bar at 9 feet 9 inches. This is splendid performance, and breaks the record of the Berkeley university by several inches. To give an idea of the performance, it will only be necessary to state that 9 feet 4% iriches is the best record ever made at a meeting of the Pa cific Coast Athletic association.- Mr. Van Dyke is to be congratulated on his slashing good record. The young gentleman who won tho hurdle race must be a phenomenon. The world record is sixteen seconds or just two-fifths of a second better than the performance yesterday by a student of the university. McArthur's mile is a new coast record. Unless the writer is in error, McArthur won the coast cham pionship at this event in 1889, with a record of 4 minutea and 46 3-5 seconds. Los Angeles came out with flying col ors at the Oakland races. Naicho B. won the mile in tne excellent time of 1:41, and old John Treat captured another race. At Gravesend, Nomad of the Rose stable made his initial appearance on the turf and finished second. This colt is by Wild Idle and promises to be a crackerjack. Arnica started in the ex pectation stakes the first day of the Gravesend meeting, but failed to get a. place. Below will be found the prin cipal happenings in the past twenty-four hours. Attention is also directed to an article on amateur athletics on another page of this paper. a big race made. The professional foot race betwen Morris of Santa Ana and Ed Tremaine did not come off yesterday. A forfeit of $250 was put up for a match of $1000, to take place next Saturday two weeks. Tremaine can run like a streak, but as far as known is not Dobbins. Who is he? A pool match. Jim Morley and Arthur Peetrea are to engage in a continuous pool game of 100 points at Fred Barman's billiard room next Tuesday evening. V KSTKRDA Y'S RACKS. Kingman Won the Latonia Derby on a Slew Track. Cincinnati, May 23.—A thunderstorm with heavy rain last night, and lowering, threatening clouds all forenoon, with a cool atmosphere, chilled the hearts of many race-goers, else Latonia would have opened tbe first day's races with an attendance of 18,000 instead of 10,000. It was a pleasant afternoon, however, and the track, though slow, was better than if no rain at all had fallen. The feature was the Latonia Derby, the fourth race, three-year-olds, foals of 1888, mile and a half. ' Kingman came to Latonia covered with laurels, but, al though he was a prime favorite last night, there were doubts today whether he would hold up on the heavy track, but these were dispelled by the race, which was as follows: ENTRIES, WEIGHTS, ETC. Dickerson, R. Williams, 2% to 1. Georgetown, 117, Button, 8 to 1. Kingman, 128,1. Murphy, 3to 1. Poet Scout, 112, Allen, 7*to 1. Allen Bane, 117, Hathaway, 30 to 1. Balgowan, 117, Overton, 8 to 5. A BEAUTIFUL CONTEST. The race was beautifully contested. Georgetown led with Dickerson second, Balgowan third. Kingman last. At the three-quarters the order was George town two lengths in front; Dickerson second, Balgowan third, Allen Bane fourth, Kingman fifth, all close together. In the stretch Georgetown led, with Dickerson second, Kingman third, Bal gowan fourth, Allen Bane fifth and Poet Scout sixth. So they came under the string, and at the quarter it was George town; Dickerson, Balgowan in the ordei named, with Kingman galloping leisure ly in the rear. At the half the only change was that Kingman was third, as he pleased, and Allen Bane was last. At the three-quarters, Dickerson led with Georgetown second, Kingman a good third, and Allen Bane last in a close bunch. On the turn Kingman came to the front at his 1 leisure, with Dickerson at his heels and Poet Scout a good third. In this order Kingman won by a length, with Dickerson second, a length ahead of Poet Scout, third, the others closely bunched. Time, 2:46>4. OTHER RACES.

San Francisco, May 23. —When the California Athletic club decided to award .lackson and Corbett each $2500 in lieu of the $10,000 purse, as originally offered for their contest, both fighters vigorously, protested against such an arrangement and declared they would not accept it. Today, however, Corbett changed his mind and took the money, and it is thought Jackson will do like wise. JACKSON WILLING TO FIGHT IT OUT. Regarding another match with Cor bett, Peter Jackeon iaid today : "I am perfectly willing to fight it out, and, in fact, think that it is the only course open to us." Jackson said he had, on leaving Aus tralia, promised the Sydney Gymnastic club that as soon as Goddard put up a forfeit, he (Jackson) would meet him. Jackson said he has since been informed that the club has arranged a match, and he accordingly sent a letter by the last steamer offering his willingness to keep his promise, but stating he would not leave for Sydney until summoned by cable. He said his letter should reach Sydney tomorrow. He would allow ten days for a reply, and if none was re ceived he would agree to another match with Corbett within the time named by the latter—that is, three months from date. He further stated that should Goddard hold him to the match, and he (Jacksonl won, he would make no other engagements, hut return here and give Corbett the first match. CORBETT WANTS A YEAR'S REST.

Suffered All a Man Could Suffer and Live. Body Covered with Awful Soiea. Cured by Cuticura Remedies. I contracted a terrible blood poisoning a year ago. I doctored with two good physicians, neither oi whom did me any good. I suffered all a man could suffer and live.

I have been using them about ten weeks, and am most happy to say that I am almost rid of tbe awful sores that covered my face and body. My face was as bad, il not worse than that of Miss Boynton, spoken of in your book, and I would say to any one in the same condition to use Cuticura, and they will surely be cured.
