Yesterday was a typical Southern
California day, and thousands turned
out to see the athletic contests in this
city. The Los Angeles clubs covered
themselves with glory. The Apollo
Baseball club of Los Angeles gained a
brilliant victory over the San Francisco
club. The Los Angeles Lacrosse team
triumphed over the Riverside club. The
Woodbury Baseball club of Los Angeles
won from Santa Monica. The Olive
Football club defeated the University at
football. Altogether, Los Angeles did
herself proud. A fact worthy of men

close and exciting, and gave universal

outdoor sport began yesterday, as a

A Large and Select Attendance at
the Park.
The new grounds of the Los Angeles
Athletic club were dedicated yesterday
afternoon. The day was an ideal one
for athletic sports, and in consequence
there waß a fair attendance of specta-
tors, notwithstanding
the counter attractions
of the day. The grand
a tand presented a very
animated scene. The
Los Angeles pretty girls
were out in force, and
their .smiling counten
ances and stunning cos
tumes added eclat to the
occasion. The ladies
evinced the liveliest in

game and many a pair
of dainty hands encased
in kid gloves came
together as a mark
of approval of some

meeting ol the Riverside and Los An

on their mettle, and those who came to
Bee a gallant contest were not disap
pointed. The Riversiders had been prac
ticing assiduously since their last defeat
at the hands of the Los Angeles club, and
they came down yesterday to make the
effort of their lives to retrieve their
lost laurels. Many Riverside people
came down to urge on their team to
victory. The Los Angeles team felt con
fident. They had selected the very best
men of the club to uphold the prestige
of this city. The greatest excitement
prevailed among the spectators, and
many old playeiß were noticed on the
stands when the participants in the
game made their appearance.
The Riversiders showed up in white
uniforms with black caps. The Los An
gelas team was attired in black with red
caps. They presented a fine appearance
in their new uniforms, and each wore a
confident air. The Riverside team looked
much the lighter, and contained more
young material than did their oppo
nents. B. Benjamin of the Hbbald
officiated as referee. Theodore Beßsing
was umpire for Los 1 Angeles, and J. 8.
Castleman for Riverside.
At 2:10 p. m. the teams lined up as

Captians: Dr. Mac Donald and Ira
Osgoode drew the ball from Dole and
the sphere was rushed in the direction
of the Riverside goal. The play was
fast and furious, and the crowd soon be
came very enthusiastic. Every clever
play was applauded. The athleteß took
their tumbles and knocks with apparent
good nature. Way made several essays
for goal, bnt the agile goal-keeper of the
Riverside club prevented the sphere
from going between the posts.
The ball alternated from one end of
the ground to the other. Dr. McDonald
made the spectators give vent to their
enthusiasm by his wonderful long
throws. Ward made several long runs,
but that method is more trying and is
not nearly as effective as throwing.
The ball is now in dangerous proxim
ity to the Riverside goal. Way cleverly
passes tbe ball to Culbert, who puts it
through the goal to the delight of the
admirers of the home team.
The first game lasted exactly !) min
TUE second game.
After the usual intermission of ten
minutes, hostilities were again resumed.
Every foot of ground was hotly contest
ed, and every player put forth his best
endeavors. It was hot and heavy for
some time. The visiting team were
struggling hard to even up matters with
the local team, but the fates were not
propitious. McCarter dashed the ball
through the Riverside goal. Caps and
lacrosse sticks were sent into the air by
the jubilant members of the Los Angeles
The time of this game was 12 minutes.
third game.
Lob Augeles looked all over tbe win
ner at this stage oi the game. Their op
ponents worked like Trojans and made
a gallant uphill fight. They held the
Los Angeles team down in "good shape
and the ball was sent flying all over the
grounds with the fleet-footed athletes in
pursuit. The dexterity of the players
in close quarters brought forth cheer
after cheer. No good play was over
looked, and while the audience shouted
the most lustily for the home team, the
clever work of the Riverside team was
not forgotten, and quite a Thanksgiving
shout went up when the Riversiders
took the third game. Captain Kennedy
threw the ball to Daniels, who scored
the goal. The time of this game was 17
minutes, and was the closest and most
hotly contested thus far.
The interest was now thoroughly
aroused. Los Angeles had two games
and RiversideJSone. It looked as if
Riverside was iv the hunt, as their men
were younger and iv better condition
and it was natural to expect them to
show up better as the game progressed.
The Riversides played nobly and tried
hard to get a goal, which would have
made them even. Several attempts
were made for goal, but. both goal keep
ers were on the alert. The home of the
Los Angelea team now made a grand at
tack on the Riverside goal. Ball after
ball was shot at the goal, but the vigi
lant goal keeper, McGrath, made a num
ber of brilliant stops and was lustily ap
plauded for his wonderful defence. The
home of the Los Angeles team were
playing in great form, but de
spite their efforts, the River
sides were not to be defeated.
But such a systematic onslaught could
not be withstood forever. Robeitson
cleverly evaded his opponent and skill
fully threw the ball to Culbert, who put
it through the goal. This gave Los An
geles three goals to their opponents'one.
This was another exciting game, but
the Los Angeles players were not to be
denied, and won after sixteen minutes
of hot playing. Culbert again scored
for the local team. It was now within a
few minutes of the hour set for stopping
play and, as the Riversides had to catch
a train, the Los Augeles club was de
clared victorious. Three hearty cheers
were given for the Kiverside team and
the crowd dispersed, unanimously vot
ing lacrosse a most exciting and inter
esting game.
Dr. McDonald played a great game for
Los Angeles. His long throws captured
the spectators. Way also played in his
usual brilliant style, his dodging being
especially good. Culbert was the right
man in the right place and scored three
out of the iour goal 3 for Los Angeles, and
Kobertson did effective work for his
team. For the Riversiders McGrath car
ried of the honors. His electrical stops
were instrumental in saving Riverside a
sound trouncing. Lyon also played a
wonderfully good game, especially in
the last two games. Dole did capitally
at times while Mott did some effective
throwing. Captain Kennedy was play
ing in good style until he got hurt, when
his brother took his place. The ground
was a trifle soft in spots and in a meas
ure interfered with sharp and skillful
work with the crosse.
The Los Angeles Cricket Team to Be
As predicted in this column every
branch of sport is going to have a
boom such as it never had before. The
cricketers propose to take a hand in the
boom of out door sports. The Los An
geles Athletic club grounds are admira
bly adapted for the British pastime. A
meeting of all the cricketers is called
next Tuesday evening, at Tufts-Lyon
Arms company. It is intended to reor
ganize the old Los Angeles cricket club
and get ready for the season of 1892. It
is on the tapis to try conclusions with
the California club—the crack ciicket
team of San Francisco, in the very near
future. A very formidable team can be
selected from among the players in this
county. There is a whole lot of cricket
talent hidden away in Southern Cali
fornia. Old cricketers who cannot at
tend the meeting will kindly address

The Tennis Votaries.
There were no Bet matches yesterday
at. tennis.'but everyjcourt iuthe city pre
sented a lively appearance during the
day and the votaries of that game did
some tall practicing for the benefit of
future events. The number of coming
good players is increasing at a rapid
rate. The advance made by tennis in
popular favor is simply astonishing.

W».c J "Jo Jo" win a brilliant
victory over Uncle Henry Harris's San
Francisco club. The victory was an
especially great one, considering the fact
tbat the Los Angeles club played its first
game together, whereas San Francisco
has been playing the same team eight
months with the exception of Speer,who
is playing Swett's position. The victory
was due to no one player. Every man
played the game of baseball, and each
man on the local team did something
during the game worthy of special men
The day was a perfect California one,
and the crowd was the best natured one
that the writer has seen for many a day.
Everyone seemed to have a good word
for the players, the mangement and the
only "Jo-Jo." The seating capacity
was not large enough to accommodate
the crowd and the management should
enlarge the grounds at once. The seats
in the grand stand were all sold by 2
o'clock and many were compelled to
stand up. The carriage room is in
adequate, but tbe Messrs. Turner and
Peartree promise to have the right field
fence extended and thus furnish plenty
of room for a large number of carriages.
At 11 o'clock the two teams in car
riages headed by a band of sixteen
pieces paraded the principal streets.
The Los Angeles' ruascot acted as
leader of the band and caused a laugh
ing sensation. His uniform was the
greatest combination of colors ever
seen in the streets of Los An
geles and it is only fair to state
that Mr. Willie Mendoza was the feature
of the parade. The non-arrival of Loh
man caused much disappointment both
to the public and the managers of the
local club, but even our own Pete could
not have caught a better game than
Dungan, who comes from the home of
Silkwood and Morris. His backstop
work was superb, not a passed ball or a
stolen base by 'Frisco to mar his good
work. Knell pitched his usual good
game. Hulen, at short, was a new man
to the local people, but soon became a
red-hot favorite by his clever work. Hol
liday and McAleer were in splendid
form, one fly catch by McAleer winning
much applause.
San Francisco played an earliest game
and their gentlemanly conduct wou
them many friends. Captain Cart
wright's men are made of the right stulF
and are down here to win the series. Tbey
were unused to the grounds yesterday,
but during the early stages of the game
seemed overconfident. For four or five
innings they were unable to connect |
with Snell's curves and then began to
lose confidence. Captain Cartwright's j
home-run hit came just in time to liven |
up the game.
At 2:15 Umpire McCarthy, who by
the way did his work nobly, called play
with McAleer at the bat. As he faced
Blawelt, the man who has just finished
pitching some eight or nine straight
games for Frisco, the great crowd gave a
loud cheer and the game was on. Mc-
Aleer was an easy out, but he was not
the only one. For two innings not a
safe hit was made, both sides being re
tired in one, two, three order.
After Goldie had been retired in the
third Holliday hit for two bases, taking
third on a collision of Smith and
Peoples off Knell's pop fly. McAleer hit
one too hot for Blauvelt, to handle, but
with the bases full Fogarty and Decker
struck out. Frisco broke the ice in
their half on Hulin and Decker's errors
and Beauvelt's single. The home team
tied the score, however, in the fourth,
Beauvelt made Hulin a present oi first.
Lucas and Goldie followed with singles.
Hulin got over the plate on Holliday 's
Hulin then proceeded to square him
self with tbe crowd for hia error in the
third by making an electrical stop tbat
brought out all the noise 3000 people
can make. Goldie made a rank error of
Levy's fly, and Speer sent the kinder
garten favorite around to third on his
two-base hit. Then came Mr. Clark—he
with the auctioneer man's voice—with
a corking hit down toward second.
Hnlin made a break for the ball, stopped
it with his left, fell down, then made
a beautiful throw to first in time to beat
Clark, thus retiring the side. It was at
this stage of the game that young Mr.
Hulen became a favorite.
In the fifth inning lx>s Angeles took
the ginger out of Blauvelt. Knell got
first on Peoples' error, and stole second.
McAleer and Dungan got in singles, and
Hulen a double. The result was four
runs, and the game remained 5 to 1
until the eighth inning. Then the crowd
became excited when Cartwright drove
the ball over the left center fence for
four bases. Sharp and Smith had
already touched Knell for singles and
walked in ahead of their big
captain. The excitement was now
at fever heat but 'Frisco failed to
score again this inning. Dungan thought
the score dangerously close, bo he led
off with a double: Hulen sent{bim home
with another. After Lucas had been
disposed of, Goldie rapped out a double.
Holliday hit for a single but Goldie was
caught at the plate. San Francisco
then came up for a last chance, but a
single run was the best that could be
done, and the game was over, Los An
geles winning by a score of 7 to 5.

Dungan, Hulen, Goldie and Holliday

The Infants Prove Too Much r<n the
San Francisco, Nov. 20. — Twelve
thousand people saw San Jose, the Cal
ifornia championß, defeat Portland, the
Pacific Northwest league pennant-win
ners, by a score of 8 to 0. The game
was the first of the series to be played,
and while not a brilliant one, was close
and exciting. San Jose scored three
runs in the first inning, chiefly on
errors and passed ball. Neither side
got a man across the plate until the
eighth inning when the California team
indulged in considerable wild throwing
and a few timely hits thrown in gave
Portland five runs. In San Jose's half of
the eighth inning McNabb grew very
unsteady, losing control of his curves,
and sent three men to base on balls, hit
the batter and made a wild pitch. Glen
alvin took McNabb out of the box and
put in Fanning to pitch. Fanning was
not an improvement, and pitched two
wild balls that gave San Jose the win
ning runs. The game was not a test of
the relative strength of the teams.

Tbe Score 1(1 to 12—A. Large Crowd Wai
In Attendance and the Great
est Enthusiasm Was Dis
Five hundred people Watched the foot
ball match yesterday morning at the
University grounds, between the Uni
versity and the Olive club of Los An
geles. The game proved to be highly
exciting, and resulted
in a victory for the
Olive club by a score of
10 to 12. Walter Tyler
refeieed the game. The
Universities showed up
lighter than their op
ponents. As soon as
the ball was set rolling
it was evident that the
tenuis were very well
matched. The lirst
touch-down was secured
by a well planned V on
the part of the Olive
team, Dan Frick secur
ing the touch-down.
George .Noble essayed
the kick and scored the
goal. The Universities
were now on their met
tle, and retaliated by
also getting a touch
down. McCoombs got the ball on a
fumble by Stephens, and made a splen
did run from the 25-yard line. Gray
kicked the goal. This made the teams
even, and no further score was made
yhen half time waß called.
The second half was even more hotly
contested than the first. The two teams
struggled manfully, but George Wright
got an opportunity, and he took advan
tage of it, scoring a touch-down. Noble
tried for goal. It was a very difficult
kick, but Noble was equal to the occa
sion and put it over. This rattled the
Universities, and Charley Wright soon
after got a touch-down. Noble then made
hie first failure as a goal kicker. This
fave the Olive club 10 points. The
Fniversities secured a touch-down and
goal just before time was up, the Olive
club thus winning by a score of 16 to 12.
The features of the University play
ing were McCoombs's fine rnnning and
Gray's kicking. For the victorious team,
the running and tackling of Pauly and
Frick were capital. McCoombs cap
tained the Universities, and Henry Heff
ner acted in a similar capacity for the
Olive club. The teams were made up

The Woodburys Defeat the Santa
Monicas 5 to 4.
The ball team of the Woodbury col
lege drove down to Santa Monica yes
terday morning in a large 'bus and were
royally entertained by the Santa Monica
team and furnished with a turkey din
ner at the Pavilion. In the afternoon
fully COO people assembled at the ball
grounds to see the game which proved
to be one of unusual interest, resulting
in a victory for the Woodburys by a
score of 5 to 4. The playing in every
particular was equal to that seen in
many professional games, and was vig
orously cheered by the large crowd.
Flint of the Woodburys pitched a bril
liant game, striking ont twenty men
and sending none to the base on balls.
Randall, behind the bat, caught him in
fine style. Pepper and Mullin at short
and third made some brilliant pick-ups.
Hasson in the left field made a beautiful
running catch. Barnes' coaching waß
one of the features of the game. Smith
and Harmon were the battery for the
Santa Monicas and did good work.
Pryor for the Woodburys did some fine
batting and scored the winning run.
The score by innings was as follows:
