GOING AT THE PACE THAT WINS
The Bicycle Races Today to Be
Komething About the Riders and
Tha Entries, Handicaps and the Rldara
in turn Various Heata — Tha First
Southern Galirornla Division
Macs to Bs Inangnrated Today.
At last tbe long-looked for Southern
California division bicycle met in here,
and will be inangnrated this afternoon
with as fine a string of racers aa have
aver been seen on thia coast.
All of thoae entered, and who number
about 175, are Southern California
ridera. The majority of them have
learned to ride in thia section, and
•jhile they may not be Native Sons of
the Golden Weat, their bicycle riding ia
•ertainly native to the section. Every
one oi the racing men oi Southern Cali
fornia, both faat and unknown, have
entered, and the eventa will accordingly
The main feature of the meet ia that
it ia a production oi Southern Oaliiornia
from the start to finish. The efforts oi
Southern Oaliiornia ridera mainly made
Ike diviaion possible, and now that the
meet ia a reality, none but southern
riders will compete in it. It is an event
that appeals more to everybody, wheth
er a bicyclist or not, than haa ever been
held here before. Southern Oaliiornia
haa started out tor iteeli in bicycling at
leaat, and the success of thia initial meet
ia a matter oi sectional pride.
The ridera have been training for over
a month past. All have been imbued
with the fact that this meet ia to be
aome thing extra, and aa a reault the
ridera are in good chape. Everybody
haa improved in their epeed from five to
12 seconds iaster than what they could
have accomplished aix montha ago.
One very noticable tact ia the univar
aal belief amongst those entered that
the racea will be run in last time, and
auch la the general impression of every
The man difficulty with the previous
races haa been that there were no prizee
of particular value or worth offered. In
tbe present racea thia ia not tbe case.
I The list of prizes contain trophies that
are worthy oi tbe attention of even Zim
merman, Sangor and any of the cracka
of national racing fame. The principal
prize ia an upright piano, which is of
fered for the mile open. To the winner
Of the half-mile open falls a high grade
bicycle. Then follows a list of elegant
watches, cups and other valuable prizes.
The prizes are now on exhibition in the
large ahow window in the Stimson
The committee in charge oi the rac
• ing ia pledged to see that iast time is
made. No loaiing ia to be allowed. The
prizes offered are worth riding for, and
the committee say they will ace that
the men do it. Time liraita will be
placed all the events, including the
heata, and it haa been stated a limit of
2:30 will be placed on the one mile
Yeaterday afternoon there were not
very many riders on tbe track, as tbe
park keeper John Kilroy soon ordered
them off and proceeded to roll and wet
down the gravel in order to have Uin
good shape for today. The track nin
better condition now than at any pre
vious time. The bank by the grand
stand has been raised about two feet
and tbe home stretch widened three
The principal work done at the park
in the afternoon was in erecting a num
ber of tents for the various riders and
Gver by the tennis conrt the Eart
Side Bicycling club and the Rambler
aggregation have placed their canvas.
The Riverside riders will occupy the
latter tent. J. Phil Percival has a tent
all for his lonely and some friends down
by the aide oi tbe home stretch. The
Los Angeles Wheelmen will occnpy the
large dressing room in the grand atand
and right around the corner from the
Victor team which ia quartered in a oozy
and well appointed room. There will
probably be several more tenta erected
today for the officers of the event and
A score board lacing tbe grand stand
just north of the tape ia in the course of
construction and will probably be fin
ished today in time lor tbe race thia
Tbe ridera all turned in to bed early
last night. t A large number went to the
pool rooma'for a while during the first
part of the evening to ace how affairs
An attempt waa made to cell pools on
all of the varioua races to be held today,
but neither enthusiasm nor money was
rampant, and but little waa wagered.
The first pool sold was on the maiden
race. Joe Long aold at $3 aa favorite,
with Lacy second at (2, the field going
lor $1. Several more pools on this race
were aold, and a few on some of the
others. In the team race at Agricultu
ral park on Tuesday the Riverside ag
gregation aold aa a hot favorite. Nobody
cared to back either of the other teama.
Several email beta were made of two to
one, with the Loa Angelea wheelmen on
the short end.
Finally the seller offered odda of 5 to
2 against the Loa Angeles wheelmen, but
thia met with but few takers.
At present the Riverside team ia the
choice of nearly every one for tbe team
race, hnt the local people may yet gain
sufficient confidence in their own team
to take tbe short end of a 6 to 2 bet.
The most difficult point of the whole
meet ia to come anywhere near picking
a email number of the winners. There
are fully a dozen men entered who can
ride a mile under 2:30, and aeveral un
der 2:20. The favorites, ahowever, are
Fox and tbe two Burkes. Gatensbury
and Holbrook are both fast men and
have been doing good work lately.
Among the other prominent ridera are
the Cowan boya. Kitchen, Castleman,
Shoemaker, Ballentine, McCrea and
The Balest system ia not to hot at all,
but if the reader desires to be sporty he
will probably find it more profitable in
the end to back the field against the
An attempt will be made to run 16 of
the races today, the remaining nine to
be finished on Monday. Among today's
eventa are aeveral state championships,
which always aroaae considerable in
terest. Fox will ride in the first heats
of the half and mile open eventa.
The races will be held today and Mon
day at Athletic park, which is reached
by taking either tbe Central avenue or
Arcade depot electric care. The racea
■tart promptly at 2 o'clock.

GILDER SLEEVE'S DECISION.
Jaeger Company Won la It* Salt
Agtlalt 1.0 Boutllller Brother*.
Judge Gildersleeve of New York city
' recently gave a decision in the celebrated
taae of Dr. Jaeger's Sanitary Woolen
System company vs. George Le Boutil
lier. v j
Judge Gildersleeve says:
"Tbe proofs show that the defendant
is now selling for 'genuine Jaeger under
wear' goods that are part cotton.
"The defendant company has a quali
fied right to the name 'Jaeger' as desig
nating underwear made in accordance
with the 'Jaeger' system is soqoalifiedly
exclusive that its right to protection of
its uso against infringement by others
rests upon tbe ground that such use by
them is an untrue or deceptive repre
"Upon the grounds .set forth I hold
that tbe plaintiff has shown the defen
dant guilty of unfair competition in ad
vertising and selling as 'genuine Jaeger
underwear,' underwear containing a sub
stantial admixture of cotton, and that
the plaintiff is entitled to an accounting,
accompanied by an injunction. As to
tbe extent of the injunction to be award
ed, lam of the opinion that the defen
dant should be prohibited from adver
tising, in the newspapers or otherwise,

WHERE'S THE SWINDLE?
HOW LONG HAS THE CITY
BEEN KOBBED ?
The Keforin League Will Take a
Hand and Investigate All De
mands in the City Au
The exclusive publication in the
Herald yesterday morning of the
echool board matter created no little
Since the evidence ia almost conclus
ive that Measra. Gardner &, Oliver, the
atationery dealers, made tbe proposi
tion to Meaara. Hilee & Sogno to give a
rebate of $49 above the cost of the win
dow shades for the Hellman street
school, the question, "Did the acheme
work elsewhere?" is being asked.
It has not yet developed which mem
ber or members of tbe supply commit
tee were working in close conjunction
with the men alleged to have made tbe
propoaition to fleece the city of money.
Thiß mystery cleared up, the public will
rest more easily. It ia not known
whether or not any further investiga
tion of the matter will be made. It will
certainly be interesting to watch the
board of education remedy the defect
ive demand of the supply committee for
Since tbe denial of Messrs. Gardner
and Oliver of tbe charge against them,
Messrs. Hiles and Sogno are more em
phatic in their declaration ever. Tbey
say they are willing to testify and can
prove that the gentlemen mentioned are
the men who made such a proposition.
If there is any ' mistake —which is
doubtful—tbe matter ought to be inves
tigated and tbe responsibility placed
where it belongs.
Many rumors were afloat yesterday
concerning matters likely to grow ont of
the unpleasant affair. The most im
portant vi that the reform league will
make an investigation of all demands in
the city auditor's office, which will
necessarily bring nearly all city officials
under tbe microscopic eye of this self
constituted inquisitorial body. Whether
this is something more than rumor re
mains to be seen.
Another rumor was that the members
of the board of education will resign if
all of them can agree to take such a
step. This is more ludicrous than
plausible. Such rumors are in no wise
new. There are at least two members
on tbe board who will not reeign.
SUPREME CHIEF RANGER.
A Koceptlon Tendered to Louie Thome
The members of tbe various local
courts of the Ancient Order of Foresters
of America gave a very delightful recep
tion last evening to Mr, Louis Thorne
of Los Angeleß, who was recently elected
supreme chief ranger of tbe order.
Shortly after 7 o'clock the members
of courts Los Angeles, Olive, Fremont,
East Side, Francaise and Columbus met,
and headed by the Douglas band, pro
ceeded to the residence of Mr. Thorne,
at the corner of Main and Sixteenth
BtreeLH, where they serenaded tbe newly
elected officer. He was then shown to
a carriage, and tho party proceeded
down Main street to Spring, to the
Temple block, and around Main street
to the nail of Court Loa Angeles at 107>g
North Main street.
The hall was tastefully decorated,
and the party was received by a num
ber of the lady members of the various
William Mead of Court Los Angeles
acted as master of ceremonies and de
livered tbe address of welcome. Mr.
Thorne replied in appropriate words.
Grand Senior Beadle L. Zinnamon
welcomed the supreme chief in behalf
of the grand court.
organizers John McGuinnesa also ex
tended congratulations. W. R. Black,
of Court Lob Angeles; H. W. Altman of
Court Olive; A. Orfilla, Court Colum
bus ;H. C. Frank, Court Kant Side; H.
Clary, Court Francaia; J. H. Criminger,
Court Fremont; Mrß. H. Baswitz, An
geline circle; Major Shonlters, city
treasurer; Mrs. Valentine, Laurlel cir
cle; Mrs. C. Doecb and Mrs. A. B. An
drews, Lea Angeles circle made brief
addresses. Prof. A. Campelanua pre
sided at the music. A general
handshaking and informal gathering
followed the exercises.
The affair was entirely informal and
nothing but good cheer prevailed. It
was, in fact, the largest gathering of
forestry ever held in Loa Angeles.
AT THE HOSPITAL.
Aa Knjoyable Entertainment Given Last
One of tbe most enjoyable entertain
ments ever held within tbe quiet walls
of a Los Angeles infirmary, for the bene
fit of suffering inmates, took place at
the connty hospital last evening.
A varied and attractive programme
was presented, consisting of solos by tbe
Misses De Santa Cruz, Aurora and Audi
encia; recitations from Professor Kelly
and Miss J. Hanson, and a mandolin
quartette by Messrs. Sotensee, Lenning,
Hager and Smith.
The most interesting item, however,
was like the good wine kept to the last,
and consisted of a 1 duet rendered in an
admirable style by the Misses D. Santa
Cruz and Bonchet, which was received
with great applause and an en core waa
repeatedly demanded. The entertain
ment, on tbe whole, was greatly enjoyed
by an appreciative audience.
PROHIBITION WRIT GRANTED.
An Unatual Prooe-ecn'iis: by Mia Supreme
Mrs. L. M. Wagner, who feceived her
discharge in March last as an insolvent
was, by order of Judge Shaw, Dumtnoned
to appear and testify as to certain al
leged frauds which it was asserted she
bad committed in obtaining her cis
charge. Mr. H. Si'.sskind and J. B.
Wagner were also ordered to nppear and
testify concerning the alleged frauds of
Mrs. Wagner. Co. G. Wiley Wells and
Mr. W. Pollard appeared on bahalf of
the parties subptenaen, and objected to
the jurisdic'ion of the court. The court
overruled the objection, and ordered the
witnesses to be examined. The exam
ination was partially had and continued
till today. In the meantime application
was made to Chief Justice Beatty of the
Bupreme court for a writ of prohibition,
which was granted, and the writ was
served upon Judge Shaw yesterday after

candy man, left for a visit to Chicago
and eastern places thia week.
A MORTGAGE CASE.
Judge Van Dyll'o Decides a Savings Bank
Judge Van Dyke yesterday rendered a
decision in tbe case oi Havings bank of
Southern California vs. Minerva O. Barr,
Jamoß C. Barr and Isabella Thornton,
giving judgment for plaintiff in accord
ance with opinion filed. It waa a case
in which tbe defendants Barr mortgaged
certain property to the plaintiff and
afterwards executed a deed in form of
grant to Mrs. Thornton. Tbe deed con
tained a clause where.v Mrs. Thornton
assumed to pay the mortgage. It was
intended as security for a loan with the
understanding that if the debt was not
paid by a fixed time tbe title should be
come absolute in Mrs. Thornton with
out foreclosure, and she should sell the
property and pay plaintiff and herself.
Mrß. Thornton testified that she waa
ignorant of tbe clause imposing upon
ber the obligation to pay the mortgage,
but the court holds that having bad
notice of the deed executed to her
through her father as agent, she ia held
to have had notice of itscontents and of
the obligation. Tbe court bolda that
where a deed is intended as a mortgage
the assumption by the grantee to pay
tbe prior mortgage is binding and judg
ment is given to the plaintiff.
