"Boxers' Night" at the- Athletic club Tuesday evening promises to l>~ one of the best ever given by the club. The event of the evening will be the fifteen round exhibition between Lon Agnew of Oakland and Frank Purcell of Salt Lake. From all accounts both men are in fine condition, and a rattling good contest may be looked for. Purcell has been trained by Harry Jones at Mondonvllle, and has been putting in some good work. His trainer says lva is as fit as- can be, and if he loses it will be only because Agnew is the better man. Agnew trained In Oakland, but will have an opportun ity to put on the finishing touches here, which he will probably do at the Athletic club rooms. Besides this event, there will be several interesting preliminaries, and all who attend may depend upon seeing a good exhibition. After a fourteen miie run yesterday morning Purcell weighed 142 pounds, leaving him with two pounds yet to take off before 3 oclock tomorrow afternoon. He says he will make the weight all right and go into the ring feeling asgood as he ever did in his life. Jones will be Purcell's chief adviser the night of the exhibition, while Van Court will per form a like service for Agnew. Agnew's complete record shows him to be a fast worker, as he has disposed of most of his men in from three to eight rounds. The record of his matches as they have occurred may be of interest to lovers of the sport ar.d is given here with: At Chiicago: Beat Jack Devany, 8 rounds; Jack Hayes. 23 rounds; Biliy O'Brien, 3 rounds; Joe Sullivan, 4 rounds; Jack McCormack, 3 rounds; Jim Looby, 5 rounds; Harry Watson, 3; rounds; Arthur Shultz, 5 rounds; draw with Harry Pigeon, 6 rounds. At Kan sas City: Beat Milkel Fate, 5 rounds; A. Brown, 9 rounds; two 8 round draw* with Bob Thompson. At Chicago: Beat Ferman Collier, 7 rounds. At San Fran cisco: Btat Billy Akers, 6 rounds; Gus Herget, 5 rounds; Fred Mueller, 6 rounds; lost decision in 10 round go with Spider Kelley; beat Bob Thompson, 12 rounds. At Chicago: Boxed draws with Pete Boyle, 6 rounds; Harry Finnick, 6 rounds, and Joe Sullivan, 4 rounds. Purcell has not such a record as a quick knocker out, probably owing to the fact that he has gone against harder men. He knocked out Mysterious Billy Smith of Boston ln 10 rounds ln San Francisco in 1592; Martin Mulverhill, 3 founds; Patsy Murray, 39 rounds; Cai. Dempsey, 5 rounds; Frank Cycles, 10 rounds; Spider Hennessy, 4 rounds; Australian Arthur Walker, 3 rounds, and boxed draws with Billy Maber of Australia.lo rounds; George La Blanche, 6 rounds; Mickey Dunn of Australia, 10 rounds; Dutch Ked of Minneapolis, and has other victories of which no record has been kept. Both men are to weigh in tomorrow af ternoon at 3 oclock at 140 pound?. Among the preliminaries will be the following: Bill Aldrich of Arizona will box four rounds with Joe Croaaen, both heavy weights; Grant Grimes of Santa Monica and Tom Carter of Phoenix, ln the featherweight clan, are down for a four round go, and Hank Griffin, colored heavyweight champion of Los Angeles?, and Tom Maseey, bearing a like title in the town of Downey, will box foui rounds for a purse, winner to take all. ♦ ♦ The Felix Bros, of 738 Commercial street have sent a challenge to Secretary McStay, offering to meet any handball team of the- Athletic club in a match game for points, or for a trophy. This will be a good chance for some of the club boys to compare themselves with the players of the old school. ♦ ♦ The Athletic club is In receipt of a handsome donation from George Steek el, the photographer, in the shape of a complete set of his famous copyrighted Sandow pictures. They are eight in number, showing the famous athlete ln the nude in his different poses. The pictures will be placed in a handsome 10x10 foot frame and will occupy a prom inent position in the parlor. ♦ ♦ ♦ Either the Riverside or Bakersfleld teams will meet Los Angeles on the local diamond July 4th. Either one of these teams will make the hottest game of the season. ♦ ♦ + Professors Theodore Bessing and De Witt Van Court have been granted a two weeks' vacation by the Athletic club board of director*. The gymna sium will not be closed, as one of the In structors will be ln attendance during the absence of the others. ■f ♦ ♦ Next Sunday the Turners will hold their monthly medal shoot at their range. ♦ ♦ ♦ At the last meeting of the Log Angelee Kennel club John F. Francis, was . |, ,-v d president, A. P. Kerckhoff, John Schu macker, J. H. Kelfer, J. L. Cunningham and Thomas S. Casey, vice presidents; Mark G. Jonei treasurer, Ralph, B, Funk secretary and Dr. R, J. Withers veter inarian. The club in its reorganized form will make a strong bid for public patronage- next year and the officers as at present constituted are expected to ator.e for past errors in management and make the 'US bench show the suc cess It deserves to be. ♦ ♦ ♦ R. H. Rowan is trying to arrange a tennis tournament at Redondo during the early part of July. In the latter part of July the annual tournament will take place at Sar.ta Monica. ■f ♦ ♦ Howard F. Brewter, holder of the Ajnerlcan 440-yard swimming record,, SPORTS OF THE DAY and D. B. Renear, American 100-yard swimming champion, both members of the Lurllne Amateur Swimming club of San Francisco, have left for Chicago to compete in the International swimming championships to be held July 3d. They go as representatives of the Lurllne club through the efforts of O. L. Swett, swim ming commissioner of the P. A. A. Brew er's record for the quarter is 6:23 3-6 and Renear's for the 100 yards If 1:05 3-5. The swimming championships of the Amateur Athletic union will be publicly contested under the auspices of the Chi cago Athletic association on July 3, 1897. at Lincoln park lagoon.

Commencing next Friday, at 10 a. m., the tenth annual open lawn tennis tournament for the championship of the Pacific states in gentlemen's singlet will take place at the Hotel Rafael, San Ra fael. Play will continue on Saturday and the championship match, between the winner of the all-comers tourna ment and Sam Hardy, the present cham pion, will take place on Monday after noon, thus giving the former a chance to rest after his labors in the tourna ment. A silver cup is offered, by the associa tion for this match, the cup becoming the property of the winner when won three times, not necessarily in succes sion. The winner of the tournament will be presented with a handsome prize valued at $100; the runner-up with a second, prize, valued, at $50. and consola tion prizes will also be given the win ners of the consolation doubles, to be played on Sunday. All matches will be best in three ad vantage sets, except finals and cham pionship match, which will be best in five. The entrance fee Is $1 and the entry closes July Ist at 5 p. m., when the draw ing will be held at the California club. The tournament committee in charge of the affair is George Whitney, chair man; Sumner Hardy and George Brad shaw. Waiter Magee will act as referee. Those who have either entered, so far or have expressed themselves as intend ing to are: R. N. Whitney, George Whit ney, Walter Magee, George de Long. George Bradshaw, James A- Code, S. H. Adams. Dr. C. B. Root, R. Bliven and Fred; Magee, all of the California club; from the Oakland club, Sumner Hardy. Thomas A. Driscoll, P. Selby, E. Stone and Mr. Nicholson will contes-t. The Alameda club will send Allen Bowen and S. Holmes. From San Rafael J. J. Crooks, Ward McAllister and Mr. Dibble will try their skill. These, with Walter Dillingham and H. Wilder of Honolulu. Mr. Krugg of Napa and J. Warner Phil lips of Keno, the tournament ought to be one of the most representative held ln years. The Chronicle says those who seem to stand the best ebow of winning are Dris coll, Sumner Hardy and the Whitney brothers. The latter have been playing fine tennis of late and'should, finish near the top. Driscoll, with the New England and southern states .championships to his credit, looms up very formidably, while Sumner Hardy can always be de pended on. Between these four the all comers' prize eeems a toes up. Walter Magee and George de Long are consid ered likely candidates. Their lack of practice until quite lately lessens their c hances, but as tenuis cracks long out of practice often get into form with sur prising quickness, both loom up as dark horses of promise. Crittenden Robinson, the California pigeon shot, is now shooting in England. He made a notable showing upon the occasion of his first appearance at Hur lingham two weeks ago. Six events were shot, and in all but two Robinson either took or divided first money. In the main event of the day he was unfortunate enough to lose his first bird. -r -f ♦ The fate of the Pacific Athletic asso ciation and the California Athletic as sociation, as the newly formed, body Is termed, depends greatly on a meeting to be held at the Olympic club on the evening of July 7th, says the Chronicle. Howard Taylor of the Olympic club and other organizers of the opposition as sociation feel satisfied that representa tives from athletic clubs all over the coast will be in attendance, and that so strong an organization will be formed that the clubs- now belonging to the Paclflo Athletic association will be forced to join the new body. + + -f Sam Rice, who recently returned from a visit to his mine in Trinity county, reports, through the Ukiah Press, that the deer are suffering from an epidemic and that countless carcasses of the an imals may be found throughout the mountains in the country visited. The disease is said by Mr. Rice to be similar to botts, and is- generally fatal in its results. THE WHEEL The third blue ribbon meet of the, South Bide Cycling club at Athletic park last week was a big success. There was a large attendance, and the several events were well contested. This club has decided to enter a team in the 25 --mlle race at Santa Monica July oth, the prize bi ing the challenge trophy cup. Furman, Ktuss and Hamlin will prob ably be entered. The two latter have shown- what they can do on the road for distance, but Furman has not. He is all right for the- ordinary track, but whether he l» in good enough condition to stand the strain of a long race is a question. ♦ ♦ ♦ In describing the C. A. C. C, the San Francisco Report says: The C. A, C. C. managers are reckon ing without their host it they think mis representation wilt win for them, and it is much to be regretted that they have resorted to such methods. Fight a fair fight, for the sake of California. Mow, LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 28. 1697 there Is the case of Southern California. Chairman Spalding of the C. A. C. C. membership committee, speaking of the amendments to the C. A. C. C. constitu tion, says in the Call this morning: "The amendments to be made will also pro vide for Southern allfornla, where the C. A. C. C. sympathizers are anxious to get to work, so they can participate in the advantages offered by the associa tion." This is very cautious. Others have been, shouting that the L. A. W. in Southern California was In a bad way and bad given up racing. It Is Interest ing to know the facts, and here they are: Since January 1, 1897, there have been twenty L. A. W. sanctions Issued in the South California division, which Is more than ever issued before up to this time in any one year. Riders have only been suspended by the C. A. C. C. for riding ln one meet, and that only to July Ist, which practically amounts to nothing and leaves them to compete ln the pro posed Los Angeles Sunday meet July 4th, if they wish. On the other hand, the division will hold race meets on July 3d and sth at Santa Monica; Riverside, July sth; Corona, July 3d, and the Santa Monica road race July 3d—the largest road event in Southern California. All these wilt be under L. A. W. sanction. The South California division has gained in membership over 100 in the last three months, as can be seen by referring to the L. A. W. Bulletin. These facts show the misrepresenta tion the C. A. G. C. managers have re sorted to in general. Now, Just glance at the flrst Sunday meet in Southern California —that at Los Angeles on May 30th. The actual attendance was not over 1300, although 5000 free tickets were distributed. Tickets were also sold to the dealers at $2 per 100, with their ad vertisement on' the reversed side. The receipts were: Tickets sold dealers, $50; grand stand scats, $130; taken in at the gate, $30; other sources, $50; total $260. Expenses: Track,' $2">; band, $26.50; prizes, $300; advertising, etc., says $50; total, $401.50. Yet the C. A. C. C. ciaimed a great suc cess. A spec lal car was run from Pasa dena at d the railroad reported fifteen people for the races. As every one had free tickets the amount taken at' the gate was from teams, who were held up at 50 cents each team, and the few who were not supplied with complimentaries. Everything was- railed off ln order to force people to buy grand stand tickets. When the stand was at its fullest an actual. count showed not 600 peopie, at 25 cents, in it-, including the band, press and passes. The 4000 advertised as being present never appeat-ed. As for the Sun day race July 4th, at Los Angeles, one of the promoters of the meet declares positively that he never had the slight est intention of offering $10C0 in prizes. So riders that venture south under C. A. C. C. auspices will be sadly disappointed. ♦ ♦ ♦ The entry blanks are out for the Sun day bicycle tournament of July 4th nt Agricultural park. The races are as follows: Mile novice, gold and silver medals; five mile Chines: race, gold and silver medals; mile open, amateur, first prize, stop watch; second, watch; third, tires; mile open, profes sional, first prize, $40; second, $20; third. $10; ten mile amateur, handicap, first prize, $35 watch; second, stop watch; third, tires; fourth, lamp; fifth, saddle, sixth, cyclometer; two mile professional, handicap, first prize, $40; second, $20 --third, $10. Entries close June 30th, with D. L. Burke, 450 South Spring street, Los Angeles. There will be another contest for The Herald trophy cup. This will be a five mile team race, with three men from each club. Of the novel features of this meet July 4th. the live mile Chinese races will come in for much amusement, as there will be eight Mongolians in this race. ♦ ♦ ♦ Every arrangement has been made by the South California division. League of American Wheelmen, to give the wheelmen of Southern California an opportunity to enjoy the annual division meet, to be held at Santa Monica July 3d, 4th and sth. The program as out lined by the different committees in cludes nearly everything that will tend to give the wheelmen an enjoyable out ing at the coast. On July 3d at 10:30 a. m. the judges' special will leave the Arcade depot for Santa Monica, giving every one an op portunity to see the start and finish of the Santa Monica road* race. In the afternoon at 2 p. m. the short races will be given at the Santa Monica track. These include a one mile novice, one mile division championship, one-third of a mile open, two-mile handicap, one-half mile heat race, amateur races and a one mile open professional. Several special races will be added. This program and the fact that the Santa Monica track le in fine condition, one of the finest meets ever held in Southern California. On Saturday evening, at the Hotel Ar cadia, a ball will be given to the visiting wheelmen andi all invited guests. This will be under the supervision of the committee on entertainment, consisting of the following members of the league: Will Knlppenberg, Los Angeles; Dr. H. H. Tremper, Ontario; Stanley J. Castle man, Riverside; L. A. Biochman, San Die-go; T. P. Izard. Santa Barbara; Henry Peabody, Santa Ana; E. J. Clark. Santa Monica; R. Y. F. Campton, New hall; W. E. ButCbart, Pomona; Frank Wheeler. Long Beach; Dr. Arthur Pal mer, Pasadena; J. D. "Wilder, Tustin; Henry Plesse, San Bernardino; W. C. IJunage, Rcdlande?. Sunday will be devoted to wheeling trips to the canyon and wharf. Special arrangements have been made whereby a steamer will be chartered for a trip en the ocean, andi a very low rate for the roundi trip has been made. Every facil ity will be afforded wheelmen, for the enjoyment of tho beach and bath houses. On Monday, July sth, will be held the great team race in competition for the division cup. The cup was presented to the division by the East Side Cycling club as a perpetual challenge cup, to lie competed for at the- annual division meet and to be held'by the team winning it for the ensuing year. This, is the greatest team race held in Southern California, and arouse,*- the greatest en thusiasm of any race held in the south. The first cup race was heldi at Agri cultural park, Los Angeles-, the River side team winning the cup. At San Diego the following year the cup was won by the Los Angeles wheelmen. Last year at Athletic park, Los Angeles, the Riverside team were successful, and at Riverside, on the 9th of September, they were again victorious. By a combina tion of unfortunate circumstances the donors of the cup have failed to win the same. The following are the race meet offi cials selected- lo act on the 3d and 6th: Referee —Dr. Bert Ellis, Los Angelee. Judges—J. S. Thayer, Los Angeles; F. W. Mansur, Santa Ana; E. A. Woodard, San Diego; Edwin Clark, Los Angeles; S. C. Sinsehelmer, Santa Maria; William A. Correll, Riverside; Thomas R. Ford, Riverside. Timers—J. W. A.

Clerk of the Course—Walter McStay. Announcer— Fay Stevenson. Starter—Will Knippen berg. Umpires—C. H. Olney, Santa Ana; H. C. Krause, Wilmington; E. W. Flint, Pasadena. The people of Santa Monica are striv ing to make this event one long to be re membered by the wheelmen of Southern California. This.taken In connection with the low rates secured on the railroads, hotels and excursions, should be suffi cient to bring every wheelman ln South ern California to Santa Monica on those days. THE KENNEL J. H. Kiefer of Los Angeles has been appointed by the Southern California Kennel club as its delegate to the Pa cific advisory board of the American Kennel club, In place of H. T. Payne. The present board conftsts of the fol lowing delegates: San Francisco Ken nel club, J. E. de Ruyter; Oakland Ken nel club, George M. P..

This is, in short, the English classification-- limit, winners,, maiden, novice and pup py classes. The open class will not be a misnomer, as at present, but will admii to competition any dogs over six months of age ar.d irrespective of winnings. Certain shows will be designated by the American Kennel club at which certain claasesmay win championship honors, -f- ♦ ♦ Field Sports says: The entry blanks' are out for the field day trials derby. The entries close on July Ist, and all owners of young setters and pointers should see that they are entered for the event in time. There are an abundance of young dogs en the coast whose fine breeding wall ft:s them for the competition, and the owner who neglects to enter, neglects; his duty to his dog. A good dog has some rights which even his owner should respect. The most important of these Is to show his ability and fine hunting qualities to the world ar.d make a record, which adds to his value as a companion or a sire. This chance can only be giver, him it. the field trials, after he has had the proper time and opportunity for edu cation and experience. Every sportsman should take a deep interest iii the field trials and do his part to make them a success, for is he not directly interested in that for which they are instituted, the development of the field dog? Without annual trials the interest in the higher classof field dogs would wane, and with it the quality of our dogs would deteriorate. We owe it to ourselves and to our dogs to see that the entries are always as large as pos sible. ♦ ♦ ♦ Field' Sports publishes in its last issui a table showing the total entries and actual number of dcgs of each breed en tered at the New York, Chicago, St. Louis ar.d San Francisco shows. The table shows at a glance the distribution and popularity of the several breeds. In New York and Chicago St. Bernards, were the leading breed, reaching 9 per cent cf the total at New York and 10Vi per cent at Chicago. This breed was also Q\k per cent of the whole show at St. Louis and SV» per cent at San Francisco. Collies formed the banner class at St. Louis, being 10% per cent of the show. The leading class at San Francisco was English setters, which formed 9*i per cent of the total exhibit. Mastiff, St Bernards, Great Danes, greyhounds, fox hounds, pointers, English setters, collies, cocker spaniels and foxterriers formed 84 per cent of the San Francisco show. 58 per cent of the Chicago show, 53V2 per cent of the St. Louis show and cnly 40 per cent of the New York show. Of these breeds San Francisco had 151) more than St. Louis, only 21 less than Chicago and only 52 less than New York. THE HORSE E. J. ("Liuky") Baldwin will race In the east during the summer. A stable of nine horses, including La Moroma, has been shipped' from Santa Anita to Sara toga. ♦ ♦ ♦ Galtee More is apt]>- named, says "Centaur" in the New York Commeclal Advertiser. The flaltees are a range of rnrtlntains in Leinster. The highest peak hi called Galtee More, so the name of the colt freely translated, might be said to be "The Greatest of the Great." ♦ ♦ For some reason the California horse, Soudan, by Sultan, was omitted from the great table of sires in the last Year book. In volumes 8 and 10 he appears as the sire of Nubia, 2:2"Vi. Soudan has a good one out this year in the black pac ing mare Octoroon, who has taken a record already this season of t:W%. There- is room for some dispute as to the trotting record of Soudan. It is given in the tabla of 2:30 performers in. volume 8 as 2:2*/2, and, the same under his sire, but in the great table he is credited with a mark of 2:20, and this latter error, if error it is, is perpetuated'in volume 10. ♦ ♦ ♦ Watson Ruddy, the wealthy horse owner, whose colors', "white, with a grean harp," are well known on race tracks throughout the west, died on last Saturday week of typhoiQVpneu- monia after a two weeks' illness. Ruddy was born, in Ireland fifty-four years ago and started in business in Chicago as a saloonkeeper. He was a magnificent equestrian, and co was Alice Mackln, daughter of Tom Mackln, the million aire contractor. Ruddy and Alice Mackln fell in love. Soon afterward Tom Mackln went abroad' ar.d brought back a wiTe. Mackln died in about a year and left an estate valued, at $1,000, --000. A coolnes.s had in the meantime sprung up between Alice Mackln and Ruddy, which resulted In Alice's marry ing the "other fellow." ltuddy, not to be outdttne, married'her father's widow two months after Mackin's death. That was two years ago. The contest over the Mackln estate excited widespread Inter est, but was finally adjusted amicably. Ruddy leaves one child, a little daugh ter. ♦ ♦ ♦ McKlnney, 2:11 H. has had a most suc cessful season. H|i crop of colts and miles this year has been a large one, and better still, every youngster is a counter part of his sire. ' ♦ ♦ ♦ A Missoula, Mont., dispatch of June 14th was as follows: At midnight the great stable owned by Higglns Brothers, two miles west of Missoula, waa discov ered In flames. Within an hour the building was burned to the ground. Five race horses and a practice boy, Frank Ryan, aged Id, who cornea from San Francisco, perished ln the fire. The burned building formed a square con taining a one-sixteenth-mile practice track. When the fire broke out there were seven race horses In the building. After covering their heads, two were rescued. Brlno Tricks, Fire Stone, Fly, Spider and one unknown were burned. After the two horses were saved Ryan entered the stables on the north side and was overcome by smoke. The stablemen could do nothing to save him. When the flames were fiercest the spectacle was horrifying, as through the open doors the poor horse* could be seen dropping in the fire. The fire was of in cendiary origin. Within a year a depot building, owned, by the same parties, was burned, and a week ago an attempt was made to burn the HiggtnS block here, valued at $120,000. ♦ ♦ ♦ Here is a good story of a tramp and a horse. A tramp appeared at the house of J. H. Barton, three miles south of Columbia. Mo., the other day, and asked for cold victuals in Greek. He stated that he was a graduate of Princeton. Mr. Barton, himself a Greek scholar, was just about to start for Columbia, and his horse was hitched ln front of the house, Jestingly he offered to give the tramp the horse if he could,recite the Greek alphabet without a mistake. The tramp looked at the horse and then at Mr. Barton, and then Inquired if the bet. included the saddle and bridle. Mr. nation said' that it did, and went Into the house to get a Greek book. Return ing, he found the tramp had mounted the horse. Aa Mr. Barton stepped from the porch the tramp rattled off the al phabet without a mistake, and, turning the horses' head, disappeared in a cloud of dust. The animal on which the Prince ton pilgrim rode away was one of the best saddle horses in Boone county, noted for Its blooded stock. THE PUGILISTS Fitzsimmons has consented to meet John L. Sullivan In an exhibition of four to six rounds, In New York, a week from today. Fitz says that he will not attempt to hit the old time champion, as he is afraid that it would result In man slaughter, but Sullivan does not like to be treated that way. When he saw the published report he said: "So he is going to be gentle and care ful with me, eh! Talks about man slaughter and afraid to hit me hard. Well, it's all right for him, In the pink of condition, to talk so. I may be con ceited, but I never met a man who could knock me out. and don't see why Bob makes such a crack at me as that. I've been here only a couple of days. When I've been here two or three weeks I'll know better what I can do. I did what I never thought I could do today.Mul doon took us off a few miles In carriages and then dumped us out and told us to make our way back the best we could. I ran up and down the hills with the rest of them and the thermometer here on this porch in the shade was 80 de grees. It made me sweat, but I'm all right and well now. I wouldn't fight a finish fight for a year. I could not stand severe training until the weather Is cooler; then I could do the hardest kind of work. I punched the bag for a while today and enjoyed it, and the handball exercise this morning was good, but this is not a regular preparation for a cham pionship battle." f ♦ ♦ Tough Mr. Sharkey, the foulest pu gilist of modern times, is not overbur dened with modesty, and since the Ma her contest has had to wear a hat sev eral sizes larger than when he was In San Francisco. Here is the able gen tleman's opinion of himself, as given by himself: "I am now the champion of the world | and will defend the title against all comers. I have never been whipped and I am the only man before the public that can say as much. I have fought all the stars of the ring, and not one of them has got a decision over me. The press and the public have given me the worst of it, and if I waited for the credit that is due me I would never have a title of any kind. I am eafily the champion of Ireland—although Peter Maher claims to be—and I can whip any man lin the world. Yes, sir, you can say that hereafter I am the champion of the world ar.d am open for challenges from Fitzsimmons, Corbett and the rest of them." The self-styled champion sailed for Ireland last week on a visit to his par ents, and It is possible that he may be heard from on the other side of the water. BASEBALL The baseball game at the Athletic Park yesterday between the Redondos and Trilbys attracted a fair-sized crowd and was won by the Redondo boys by a score of 14 to 8. The game was won by hard hitting on the part of the fisher men ar.d better work in the field as well. The bright particular star of the day was Settle, who pitched a magnificent game, striking out no less than twelve of the hard hitting Trilbys. Sandy and Klvera took the places of two of the regular players who failed to show up, and both played like school boys. An derson. Perkins and Harry Brown played like veterans for the Trilbys. The Redondo boys are deserving of a great deal of credit for the game they THE NATIONAL BANK OF CALIFORNIA * AT LOS ANOELXa Capital and Profits »270,000.00.
