San Diego exhibited some of Its- prod
ucts yesterday at the bicycle meeting
held under the California Associated
Cycling clubs. Vaughn of San Diego
won both the professional events ir.
magnificent style, while a Mongolian
rider, rejoicing in the name Ng Hop,
showed his queue to the representatives
of Los Angeles in the Chinese race.
About six hundred peopie watched the
races, and applauded the fine finishes
made by the riders. The work of Ref
eree Phil Percival is to be highly com
mended, his decisions in the matter of
lime limits being perfectly proper, and
very satisfactory to the spectators. Bad
management, however, was noticeable
in the crowded condition of the track,
though the referee was continually or
dering it to be cleared.
The first race on the card was the on'
mile novice, with twelve starters. They
were E. H. Conklin, E. S. C. C, L. A.;
A. C. Earhart, Los Angeles; Guy Gar
rison, Covina; H. H. Greenfield, unat
tached. Los Angeles; Will Block, E. S. C.
C, Los Angeles; H. W. Ayres, unat
tached, Los Angeles; Merrill A. Reed,
unattached, Los Angeles; Bert Rose.San
Fernando C. C; George Romans, E. S.
C. Ci Los Angeles; lan Studdy, unat
tached, Otay; C. A. Trahn, E. S. C. C,
Los Angeles;; Robert T. Vaughn, Otay.
The referee put a time limit of 2:20 on
tha race and sent the men away. The
riders took things easily up to the final
sprint, when Vaughn of Otay jumped to
the front and led all the way down the
stretch, winning in good style. The
time, 2:32, was not down to the limit,
however, and the race was ordered run
again. On the run over Block went to
the front at a merry clip, the field trail-
ing after him. Greenfield took the pace
tor the second quarter, the whole bunch
Blowing down on the turn. Vaughan
again started the sprint, but this time
Trahn was watching him., and at the
eighth headed fast for home, pulling
Romans with him into second place and
Winning by a clear length. Time 2:26.
The mile open professional had one of
the best fields ever gotten together on a
local track. Aldridge, Bell, Burke.
Casenave, Coty, Loucks, McCrea, Pal
mer, Vaughn and Slater are all men
good enough to ride in any second-rate
company. A time limit of 2:18 was put
on the race, no pacemaker being pro
vided. Aldridge of Arizona jumped to
the front and took the first quarter fast ,
hut when Loucks relieved him, the pace
slackened, becoming almost a loaf at
the five-eights pole. McCrea saw his
chance and jumped at once into his
sprint. Bell hanging on like grim death.
Vaughn and Slater apparently realized
that the race was too slow, and con
tented themselves with taking a to
boggan slide behind the leaders. The
time was 2:35, and again the run over
was ordered.
This time Aldrieh was put in to pace
although he started in the line. At the
gun he jumped to the front at a fast
gait, Bell hanging on, McCrea third,
61ater and Vaughn following. This was
the order without change up to the five
eighths pole, where Aldridge fell out.
McCrea again made the jump, this time
with Slater and they led the field down
the stretch. It looked like a sure win
for McCrea, but at the drawgate he
swung wild, going to the center of the
track. Like a flash Vaughn swung
inwards to the pole, bent over his bars
and made his jump. He passed Mc-
Crea like a streak and flew over the tape
amid a huge roar of applause from the
delighted spectators. McCrea took sec
ond place. Loucks followed him in and
■won third from Slater. Time 2:21 2-5.
The one mile amateur resembled the
professional mile in that it had to be
run over because the time limit of 2:20
was not met. Lacy won the first time,
but the referee decided the men must
run agaiin. When the field, which in
cluded Delay, Lacy, Salladay, Mussey
and others, started, a repetition of the
former "loaf" seemed Imminent. How
ever, Lacy went to the front and started
a. great pace, the whole field stringing
out. At the half-mile post, Frazee
pumped for home, making a great sprint,
the other riders wisely leaving him go.
The real sprint started at the three
quarter pole* Delay starting after Fra
eee, who swung into the stretch about
fifteen lengths to the good. Laicy was
the last In the bunch, and made his
effort about half way down the home
stretch. When he did start he came fast
and passed Delay about fifty yards from
the tape, winning handily. Delay took
second place, Mussey slipping in third.
Time, 2:34 1-2, the referee allowing the
pace to stand, since Lacy, the winner,
was the one who set the pace.
The two mile professional race was
another hollow win for Vaughn. The
riders and their handicaps were:
H. E. McCrea, B. C. W., San Francisco,
SPORTS OF THE DAY
scratch; A. T. Bell, L. A. A. C, Los An
geles, 50 yards; W. A. Burke, A. C. W.,
Los Angeles, 50 yards; W. B. Vaughn,
S. D. W., 25 yards; Howard Slater, B.
C. W., Phoenix, Ariz., 15 yards; Frank A.
Coty, C. C. C. C, Pasadena, 75 yards;
S. A. Casenave, E. S. C. C, Los Ange

attached. San Diego, 76 yards; C. Wash
burne, unattached, Duarte, 100 yards;
William Aldridge, unattached, Los An
geles. 150 yards.
McCrea, the scratch man, made a good
ride to catch the limit men, but it was
of no avail, and he dropped out of the
race at the half mile post. Burke fol
lowed his example. Bell jumped for
Vaughn's rear wheel, and was pulled up
to the bunch, all the riders being to
gether at the three-quarters. Seeing
that McCreai had been shaken, the men
slackened the pace somewhat, and rode
unchanged until the sprint came in the
last quarter. This time Vaugn waited
for no one, but started down the out
side of the line, traveling fast. Slater
was leading and made a game fight to
win, but Vaughn would not be denied
and won handily. Slater second, and Bell
third. Time, 4:48.
The ten mile amateur handicap was
expected to be the great race of the day,
but the only remarkable feature of the
event was the game effort Mussey made
to catch the leaders, riding more than
seven miles entirely unpaced. The start
ers were F. G. Lacy, E. S. C. C, scratch,
E. E. Salladay, E. S. Cf C, 15 seconds,
John Burr, jr. San Fernando C. C, 30

Lacy and Frazee, the two scratch men.
made a good ride, but the chase was
a hopeless one. Burr ar.d Greenfield
made splendid pace for the leaders, the
back mark men making very slight
gains.. On the ninth mile, Bomans
Studdy and Block fell, leaving Burr.
Greenfield, Vaughn and Rose to fight
it out. Vaughn started the spurt, a hard
one for the finish of a ten mile race, bu'
START OF THE MILE OPEN
Burr and Greenfield timed their effort
nicely and the former landed the race
by half a length, Greenfield being a
length in front of Vaughn. The time for
the winner was- 29:36%. Mussey'a time
was 27:48.
The Chinese three-mile race was ir- t
trodut ed solely for the purpose of rais- t
ing a laugh, and in that capacity it sue- s:
ceeded admirably. Ng Hop, the Sat r
Diego wonder, rode a high gear, anrl i
wore his opponent out, winning from the i
Los Angeles Mongolian in the time of 1

At Santa Monica today the closing
races of the L. A. W. division meet will
be held. The most interesting even!
upon the card will be. the twenty-five
mile team race for the East Side Cycling
club cup. Three teams are entered, the
South Side Cycling club, the Eaet Sldv
Cycling club and the Santa Ana Ath
letic club. The South Sides are repre
sented by Ruess, Hamlin and Furman,
the East Sides T>y Hawksand two Others
ar.d the Santa Ana men are Bundy,
Glenn and Engel. A remarkably fast
race should result from the meeting of
these men.
Besides the main events the program
includes a one-third mile open, a one
mile consolation for riders who won
nothing on Saturday, and a one mile for
Santa Monica riders only. Some special
events, such as trials against time, have
also been arranged for the afternoon.
♦ ♦ +
The principal sporting event of the
past week was the annual road race to
Santa Monica, which was one of th?
most successful since the event was In
augurated. The. race was won by Car
son Shoemaker in good time. A number
of the local wheelmen also went up to'
Riverside to take part in the events at
t that place. From now on until the sea
son closes the prospects are that there
will be weekly runs or races by some of
. the clubs every Sunday."

Solly Smith will arrive in the city
about the 17th, and his many frlerdsare
preparing to give him a cordial recep
tion. Since he left Los Angeles Solly
has gone against some of the best men
in the country, and in every instance has
acquitted himself creditably. He is a
game, clever fighter, and has developed
Into a first class man. Harry Jones, who
defeated Fred Bogan, is anxious to
make a match with Smith, but it is
doubtful if it can be arranged. Jones
cannot fight below 130 pounds, and as
this is five pounds at least more than
Smith's fighting weight, it isa question
whether he will concede it. Smith at
the outset of his career, very wisely de
cided not to fight any ore over him in
weight, and it is doubtful if he will make
an exception in this case. Joe Cotton
would also like to meet Walcott, who
comes with Smith, but the weight ques
tion again comes in, and it is not be
lieved that anything can be done.

The rocky coast ot Catalina Island,
says Field Sports, is undoubtedly re
sponsible tor the'almost miraculous pro
duction ot sardines, as the numerous
crevices furnish protection for the
spawn and an escape for the young fish
and even larger ones when pursued.
And in turn this unlimited quantity of
sardines is responsible for the splendid
fishing found about the island. An idct>.
of the great quantity of sardines that
swarm about the island can be had from
the catches that are made to supply the
sardine cannery located at San Pedro,
and employing about seventy-five men.
Most of the sardines are caught by the
net of the sloop Alpha, which has caught
as high as fourteen tons of these little
fishes at one haul. With such a supply
of food it is no wonder that yellowtail,
baracuda. albacore, mackerel, tuna
etc., are to be found about the island ir.
such great numbers.
♦ ♦ ♦
"The fish commissioners have distrib
uted the following black bass fry from
the Russian river: Clear lake, 3000;
Merced. 5000; Fresno, 5000; Lemoore. 500:
Modesto and Tuolumne rivers, 500 each;
and Los Angeles. 500; Orange county,
1000; San Diego, 1000; Marysville, 1000.
and 500 to Alameda county.

Some idea of California sea fishing
may be had from the fact that one gen
tleman leaving the wharf at Avalon.

lours' catch twenty-eight yellowtai'.

If the fisherman is visiting a lake
where he is unacquainted with the con
ditions of the bottom, he should seek out
the rocky ledges, says an old time an
gler in the Sportsman's Review. Down
among the rocks, which form a fine home
for his bass-ship, he is quietly resting,
apparently asleep, but with an Eye open
to all that is going on around him. Put
a nice little live minnow on the hook,
and drop it as gently as possible, and let
the little fish swim slowly down toward
the bottom, if that bass Is hungry he
will make a swift dart for the minnow.
He will not stop to examine the fish.
If there is any life in the minnow the
bass will open wide its jaws and gobbh
the little one up. The minute he feels
the prick of the hook he will attempt to
jet rid of it. For that reason a quick
strike should be made—not a yank or
a jerk, but a little turn of the wrist to
fasten the hook. This maddens the fish.
It probably does not hurt him so much
as it annoys him. The angler has two
things to do —to keep him from under
the rocks and keep his line taut. He will
finally tire out and come to the landing
net or gaff.
A bunch of worms, a grasshopper,
small frog or cricket are good bait when
the bass are feeling well. Even a red
rag will tempt them. Sometimes when
fishing for perch with a red-painted bob
or cork, a bass will jump at it. In trol
ling for bass a minnow is the best bait
In cloudy weather a gold spoon will
prove more tempting than the common
silver one. A few feathers should be
attached to the spoon hook. Fly fishing
for bass is pretty sport. They do not
rise so quickly as trout, but are more
auspicious than salmon. They never
play with the flies like a trout, jumping
up and down just for fun, but dash di
rectly at It.

BASEBALL
The ball game at the Athletic pari
yesterday attracted but a small crowd
The Redondo boys were short the serv
ices of Settle, their pitcher, and as a re
suit they were an easy game for th
Trilby.?, who played an excellent gam
both in the field and at the bat, and wo
by a score of 15 to 2. Anderson wa
charged with their only error, audit wa
an almost impossible chance. Browr
Walker, Perkins and Nettles playe
splendidly, and Weed and Tyler of th
Redondos also put up a good game. Th
Redondo boys appeared demoralized an
badly broken up. R. Kosterlitz split hi
hand badly In the early part of the garni
but the balance of the team, desplt
their hard luck, kept gamely at it an
played the game out. The tabulated

THE HORSE
Apropos to the account of the death of
Preakness, a famous man-eater. "Au
gur," in a recent issue of the Sporting
Life, of London, says:
"There are no good reasons for the
difference of tempers In thoroughbred
horses, as although some people assort
it to be hereditary, there have been nu
merous cases to refute that argument
My opinion is that some of the best and
highest-couraged horses have been
made bad-tempered by some accident,
probably unknown to their owners 01
trainers, or else by carelessness or mis
management. A savage kick or a bang
over the quarters with a pitchfork may
be done in a second and no one be the
wiser, but the singularly highly nerved
animal does not forget it, and maybe it
rankles in his aggrieved mind to make
him touchy at first and then absolutely
ill-tempered.
"The more hlgh-couragcd he is th»
more likely he is to lose his temper, and
hence it is that some of the best horses
ever known have been the worst tem
pered. Lottery, the son of Tramp, was
so bad tempered that when he was a
two-year-old It was proposed to shoot
him, and when he ran in the St. Legei
in Barefool's year he would not try a
yard. Fortunately for the turf in the
future he mended his ways so far as
-acing is concerned, and proved himself
the best four-mile hOHM of his day. If
he had remained the same sulky as well
its bad tempered brute he would most
likely have been unsexed, and the world
would have lost Sheet Anchor, and from
him downwards Weatherblt and all the
Headsman family. It is true the tribe
have been labeled high-couraged and
some of them bad tempered. Beads
man was a savage, and he cost Sir
Joseph a pension of £50 a year by biting
a man's hand off. Rosicrucian would
-land no nonsense, but many who had
10 do with him declared he was not bad
tempered, and the last time I saw him he
was like a pet lamb. Again. The Pal
mer, brother of Kosicrucian, was a par
ticularly quiet horse. It least he was
when I saw him as a stallion at Mr.
Cookson'.?.
"The Baron was such a demon as a
Stallion that the bargain with the
French government wculd have been re
pudiated If it had not been for the fact
that when the' Haras Inspector came to
England to buy him he was left in his
box with him for some minutes, and tin
horse, allowed him to pick up his feet
and handle his leg-;. When the report
came in, therefore, of his savage ways,
;he inspector, who was a great author
ity, declared it was an infamous false
hood, as he had found him quiet as a
cow. There was no doubt about his be
ing a savage though, ar.d yet he get
such good-tempered horses as Stock
well and Rataplan out of a grand
daughter of Sultan (a very fine one),
besides a lot of temperate animals in
France, such as La Toucques, N'oelie and
Nobility."

SAFE IN PORT
Two of the Crew Lie on the Ocean's
Bottom
SAN FRANCISCO, July 4— The Pa
cific Mall steamer San Jose arrived to
day from Panama and way ports, leav
ing two of her crew In ocean graves. On.
of them was Chief Engineer McLean
who died on June 14 jut* before th.
steamer reached Aeajutla. Captair.
Russell diagnosed the case and he re
ported that the engineer died of rheu
matism of the stomach. Soon after the
engineer's death several of the crew
were taken ill with fever and the sick
ness had many of the symptoms to th.
dreaded yellow jack. On June 14 Rich
ard Blummerhassett, a mess boy. dlec.
and Dr. R. Blue, the federal quarantim
officer at this port, says that from tin
symptoms of the boy's ailment, as de
scribed by those of his companions thai
nursed him, yellow fever was the
cause of death. The vessel was put ii
quaiar.tine at every port she called a;
on her way up the coast and was fort}
days makor.g the run from Panama t'
this harbor. There was no sickness oi
board when she came in but to avoid
any risk from contagion the vessel was
ordered Into quarantine.
The Acapulco, that came into port or
Friday and reported the loss of four ol
her passengers and crew on the way
from Panama to this port from yellow
fever, was released from quarantine to
day.
BUTTERS' SYNDICATE
Takes Control in I African Elec
tric Railroads
OAKLAND, July 4.—Henry A. But
ters departed for Europe tonight oi
business connected with the Englisl
syndicate represented by the Pledmon:
capitalist. He received word todaj
that his syndicate had secured a con
cession covering the entire electric
street railways of Johannesburg, Soutl
Africa. The culmination of this dea'
throws the entire electric street railway
systems of South Africa into the hand.'
of the Butters syndicate.
In this transaction several American
now prominent in South African affair
are heavily interested. Among then
are J. K. Waterman, formerly genera
freight manager of the Colorado Mid
land railway of Denver; John Hay.-
Hammond, Henry A. Butters and hi
brother Charles Butters, who is now ii
Johannesburg. The consummation of
the negotiations at this time is taken to
mean that President Kruger has adopt
ed a different policy toward the Uitland
ers than prevailed during the Jameson
troubles.
