As the harness races will consume
much time the races will start promptly
at 1 oclock this afternoon.
The success of the eighteenth annual
meeting of the Sixth District Agricul
tural association now in progress at Ag
ricultural park is already assured, the
attendance at Saturday's races having
more than paid the expenses of the
meeting. All that is made from now on
will be "velvet" for the organization),
anel the building of a new track is almost
a certainty. It had been theintention of
the association to greatly improve the
track and grounds for this meeting, but
there was not enough money ln the
treasury to pay for the work, and the
association decided to depend upon'the
receipts of this year's meeting to furnish
funds sufficient to make the improve
ments next year. Now that it is certain
that the meeting will be a success finan
cially, the officers have already begun
to make plans, which, if carried out, will
place the grounds In as fine condition
as any on the coast. An additional sec
tion is to be built to the grand stand, a
new paddiock erected, new stables and
stalls put in and most Important of oil
the track Is to be made anew. It will be
surfaced with material which will make
It good in almost all kinds of weather,
The Inside track is also to be made over.
In short, the entire grounds w ill be put
In as good condition as the judicious
expenditure of money will make possi

The admirers of harness racing will
have a great bill of fare during the pres
ent week. This afternoon the 2:17 and
2:12 class trots are down for decision
The latter event is one of the star attrac
tions of the entire meeting Zombro is
steadily advancing in popular favor, and
hundreds of his admirers are coming
over from San Bernardino today to se3 ,
the son of McKinney meet the stars of
the California trotting turf. While the
majority of horsemen Incline to the be
lief that the real struggle will prove to
be between Jasper Ayers and Zombro,
the San Jose mare, Ethel Downes, is re
garded to have a great chance If the
trio engage In a heat splitting match
the chances of Mamie Griffin will be ma
terially Increased, as she shines in a
long-drawn-out contest and secured j
her record of 2:12% in a fifth heat ln the I
race at Chico, in which she triumphed,
over Zombro and Jasper Ayers after
each horse had two heats to his credit.
Chris Peterson, if he has regained his
Montana form, should certainly prove
an element in the struggle for the big
end of the $1200 purse. He did not show
his true ability in either of his last two
races, but he has had the benefit of al
most the week's special preparation.
Galette will have to show improvement
to cut a big figure in what promises to be
the most sensational' harness race ever
seen in the west. If the track is fast
this afternoon 2:10 Is very liable to b?
beaten In one or more heats The six
starters are all ready for the struggle,
and the first heat will be called at about
2:15 o'clock.
♦ ♦ ♦
Considering the condition of the track.
Searchlight paced a phenomenal race on
Saturday, and one that no three-year-old.
in America could have duplicated. Joe
Wheeler is a wonderfully fast horse, as
his last quarter in 30 seconds in, the first
heat is ample demonstration. Search
light, while not as fast, posseses more
endurance than the Fresno horse, but if
Andy McDowell had been selected, to
drive In the first place many good Judges
believe that Joe Wheel er would have won
in, straight heats. Charley Owen does
not profess to be an experienced reins
man, and it was at his request that Mc-
Dowell was substituted ln the fourth
heat. While Anaconda beat Joe
Wheeler at Oakland In the race In which
the latter paced a mile ln 2:07y 2 , it looks
as If the Fresno horse might turn' the
tables on his conqueror on Tuesday, and
if the weather continues good there is
every reason to believe that a new race
record for this state will be established,
and a heat ln 2:06 , /4 would not create any
great surprise. It is doubtful If two
faster sidewheelers than Anaconda and
Joe Wheeler ever scored up for the word
ln California.

There will be an abundance of pugi
lism in Los Angeles this week. Tumor
row night at Hazard's pavilion the
Stelzner-McAuliffe match will take
place, and before It there will be a num
ber of preliminary bouts between local
boxers. Friday night two fights will
take place there in addition to the usual
"curtain raisers." In the fight tomor
row night the patrons of that clas-s of
sport will be given an opportunity to see
whether such events in this city are to
be successful. The success of these fu
ture events will not depend upon the
large attendance at this one fight, but
I wholly upon the actions of the men them
selves. There have been altogether too
; many make-believe fights in this city
! during the past few months, which have
I been advertised as the "real thing."
j After they were fought(?) out the par-
I tlcipants usually laughed at the howls
j of the d.isgusted crowds, ar.d coolly pock
eted the gate receipts. The promoters
of the fights this week have declared that
unless the crowd Is satisfied that the
men who wear the gloves have done all
they can do. the purses will not be paid
and that any person in the audience who
is not satisfied with the sport furnished
will receive his ticket money back upon
demand at the box office. This appears
to be'all that could be asked, but if to
morrow's fight is a madwttp affair the
Friday night contest will be a failure,
and deserves to be.
Stelzner and McAuliffe have been
training at Redondo and Santa Monica,
but how well they have been training
will only be known when don the
gloves for their fifteen-round, go. One
thing in their favor, and which may be
taken as an indication of earnestness on
their part, is that since the articles were
signed they have not done much talking.
There has been a total absence at all
statements from either of them as to
what kind of a fight they will put up.
Of course the trainers of each have made
the claim of physical perfection for
their men, but al! such claims have ti
be taken with due allowance for pos
sible prejudice. That the attendance
tomorrow night will be large is nov,
considered certain, for among the visit
ing horsemen there is great interest in
the fights.

Billy Delaney seems to take much to
heart his failure to match Jeffries
(From a Photograph of the Great Pacer Taken Yesterday)
against Joe Choynski, who has recently I
been matched to fight that foul-mouthed ;
Goddard. The latter had the call, so |
Jeffries will have to wait. Perhaps, it
is just as good that Delaney avoided Sir
Joseph for the present, as the latter Is
feeling in great fighting shape, and will
probably render a very good account of
Himself when in the ring with the Aus
tralian fighter. Jeffries is young yet,
and though being coached by a great
ring teacher and tactician, he hasplenty
to learn that will do him good.

The most interesting battle to be
fought within the next sixty days is that
between Dave Sullivan and Pedlar Pal
mer. The little ones will meet in Eng
land, for the championship of the world,
and rumor has it that the American is
being looked upon as suspicious by the
most knowing ones In the old country.
Sullivan and Palmer will be well
matclled, and as they are both very
clever the best fight of recent times will
be apt to be fought when they enter the
ring, Americans are backing their man
freely with coin of the realm.

Mayor Carter Harrison of Chicago

Joe Goddard lias already made a state
ment which should attract much atten
tion and do a great deal toward putting
an end to the controversy between Fitz
and Corbett. Goddard has come out
boldly with the announcement that he
wants to fight Corbett, and that very
badly. The Barrier man is even willing
to match himself against Corbett con
tingent on his defeating Sharkey. Here
Is the golden opportunity for Corbel i.
He should fight Goddard and show the
great American public that he is still
in the championship class. If he beats
Goddard he will be a formidable man
in the eyes of the sporting world, and
Fitz could not well refuse him a return
battle. Now, If Corbett still believes he
is the best fighter in the world, here is
his chance.

The match between Joe Goddard and
Joe Choynski, which the National Ath
letic club of San Francisco has secured
for a November attraction, should prove
a great contest. These men met twice
before, in February and July, 1891. The
'first battle was in Sydney, Australia,
and the second in Melbourne. The con
tests lasted four rounds each and they
were of the whirlwind order, victory
perching on the banner of the Barrier
, Giant. Since that time Choynski has lm
proved a great deal, and there is no doubt
but what he will tight almost with des
peration to defeat his old conqueror.
/The Australian has a good thing in this
.match, that is, in a financial way. In
case ho wins he will get 60 per cent of
the gross gate receipts, or 40 per cent if
he loses. Choyn*kl, ln his eagerness to
secure a battle with Goddard, got the
worst of It from a monetary view. If
he loses he- will not receive- a cent of
compensation, while if he is the victor
'his percentage- will amount to less than
one-third of the gate.
J. L. Cunningham of this city, than
whom there is no better authority on
dogs in this part of the state, watt noti
fied by wire yesterday that his famous
Great Dane Juan had captured both the
first and special prizes for his class at
the Victoria, B. C, bench show. There
were three San Francisco dogs in the
lists for these prizes and some of them
were among the best in that city. The
victory places Juan in the Challenge
class. Mr. Cunningham also owns the
champion Juanita. The judge at the
Victoria show was E. Davies of Bin
ning ham, England.
A number of prominent men in trans
portation circles at Seattle are Interest
ed in the curious scheme of cornering the
dog market Representatives are scat
tered all over the country arranging for
the purchase ami shipment of canines
to that city. The company has already
on bund, nearly SOO dogs and claims to be
able to supply 2600 on short notice. The
animals are to be used in Alaska to
draw sledges-, etc.
At the recent meeting of the American
Kennel club a number of radical changes
were made ir.< the classifications for
bench shows, the new being much more
complicated than the old rules. Some of
the new rules will work a hardship to
the smaller owners of tine dogs, since,
under them, nothing Is to be gained In
making open clas's winnings except the
few dollars offered as prizes, andi all dog
owners do not show their dogs alone for
the money there is in It. The new classi
fication prevented the entry of a number
of California dogs at Victoria last week,
aril their effect will doubtless be felt in
all future show s on the coast,

According to a ruling made at the las;
meeting of the A. K. C, a dog entered
wrongly and which is deprived of judg
ment ln his class is still eligilde to com
pete for specials. Overweight is one of
the most frequent causes for challenging
an entry, and heretofore when a chal
lenge was sustained the dog was not al
lowed to participate in Judgment for any
of the prizes, class or special.

All shooting- dogs should retrieve. Re
trieving should he taught by force, bul
still taught gently, so as to make the dog
a cheerful retriever. Nothing- is more
Itsgustlng than to see a dog retrieving
vith his tall between his legs and coming
In as if expecting a whipping. A good,
•heerful anxious retriever is best made
by teaching the dog to carry something
In his mouth while with one on his
.valks. He soon gets proud of the act,
mdi when he retrieves his bird he wll!
nine in on the rum with head up and tail
sagging. He should be good at finding
■rippled birds and should take the foot
vent and follow them until overtaken.
A quiet, but none the less determined,
effort Is being made by certain of the
market hunters of this county to se
cure a repeal of the 1 anti-shipping or
dinance adopted by the county board of
supervisors a week before the hunting
aeason opened. Anticipating organized
ippositlon from the sportsmen of the
city, the matter has been quietly con
ducted, and several members of the
board' have been sounded to ascertain
their view's on the subject. How much
atisfaction the men who kill game for
noney, andi not for sport, got out of
heir interviews is not known, but it is
inderstood that a long petition is soon
o be presented to the board. This will
>ear the signatures of a number of per
sons, few of them hunters and none of
hem sportsmen. That the ordinance Is
lust what the sportsmen desire is shown
>y the expressions of satisfaction at
'he action of the board, and any attempt
,o repeal the measure will be met by
vigorous opposition by them.

Is high grade and all of which is easy
to mine.

I At the dry concentrator all interested

The Mountain View Mining company

to its property in the Julian district.
Work Is to be vigorously prosecuted
under the superintendence of C. L
Ilubbs. The first work will bo the tak
ing out of a "mill run" of high grade ore,
to be treated at the Owens mill at Julian,
and immediately following permanent
development will have the precedence.
On the 16th inst. several men left San
Diego to go out and develop the property
of the Laguna Mining company ln tin
Laguna mountains, a lot of treasury
stock having been sold to provide for
this purpose.
Report comes In that ruby and horn
silver has been struck in the Alpine mine
in the Laguna mountains. It has been
known that some portions of the vein
or ledge were rich in silver and lead.
The market on the exchange last week
showed a decided improvement. Mag
ganetta still continues to advance and
there see-ms to be no limit to orders in
this stock. Pacific Consolidated was an
active trader, but showed no decided

The furnace of the Boston-Nevada
company's smelter at Yerington, Lyon
county, Nevada, was blown in last week.
Everything went off like clock work, j
not a hitch, not a change in any part ot
ths work. Every man knew just what
was expected of him, and when the mat- j
ter was in the mould. H. A. Keller, a
prominent metallurgical and mining en-1
gineer of San Francisco, one who has;
had over fifteen years' experience in
Leadville and Butte, complimented Mr. I
O. B. Hardy, under whose supervision
this smelter was erected, that no change
was necessary at the test.
Mr. Keller says that it is very seldom
that new works of this kind are started
up without a number of changes being
necessary before the plant can be sue-
cessfully operated, and that the success
ful operation of this smelter is due to the
knowledge and management of Mr.
Hamy. The plant Is a largeone, and.so
constructed that anoth-jr furnace can be
added with but very little expense.
There are about fifteen men working
in the Blair mines at Silver Peak, Es
meralda county, which John W. Mackay,
the great mining man of California, had
a bond on and recently went to ex
The Mary mine, another one of Silver
Peak's mines, is taking out good ore, and
there is already a couple of hundred tons
on the dump. The ledge in the upraise
Is eight feet wide, and never looked, bet
ter. The leaching works is cleaning up
the tailings from the last mill, and the
mill Is being put in order for another run.
The mill at Alida is working on gold
rock from a mine near the Buster, lni the
Pigeon Springs country of Esmeralda
The Copper Queen company of Bisbee.
It is understood, will receive carload
shipments of oreat Benson and transport
same from that point to Bisbee and
charge $10 per ton for treatment. As
the Copper Queen company bearsa most
excellent reputation for paying the
highest price for ores, it is liable to secure
a large quantity for treatment.
The Jerome Copper company has been
incorporated It will develop and oper
ate the Winningham group of claims,
which adjoin the United Verde. The de
velopment work on the Winningham
group shows remarkably well, although
water level has not yet been reacheck.
There is an abundance of ore about the
same grade as that obtained from the
United Verde at a similar depth.
Carl Kuntz recently discovered some
rich quartz veins in People's valley near
JPrescott. Some samples of the ore,
which is ribbon quartz, are very rich
in coarse gold. While no assays of the
ore have been made, it is estimated that
it will run $1000 per ton. These ledges
crop out very boldly, but miners and
prospectors have tramped over them for
years. Mr. Kuntz has men engaged now
doing the title work to this claim.
The Gopher Mining company is work
ing three shifts on their Gopher mine in
Chaparral near Prescott. The shaft is
now down 200 feet ancs has a permanent
Tho Providence Miming company has
the shaft in its Annie mine down 340 feet
and has a solid body of sulpherets four
feet wide at that depth. The company
already has enough ore blocked out to
keep its ten stamp mill running for the
next two or three years without another
foot of development work.
Lower California
The Piedad mine in the Jacalltos dls
trict, together with a number of adja
cent properties, and known as the Pie
dad group, has been bonded to a Los
Angeles company, says the Lower Cali
fornlan, of which ex-Governor Mark
ham of California is a member.
Mr. Louis F. Kwiatkowskl, who has
passed quite a portion of the past year
on the Peninsula, is the local representa
tive of the company, and he and Mr. W.
F. Schroeder of Los Angeles, who is
also interested in the mines, were in En
senada last week preparing to com
mence developments.
Considerable work has been done In
the Piedad mine in the past few years.
The shaft is down 150 feet with quits
extensive drifts and cross cuts, and
there is a five stamp mill on the prop
About a year ago there wasan attempt
at a sale with rather unsavory com
plications, since which time all work has
been suspended. It is only recently that
this unfortunate tangle of affairs has
been straightened out and now that the
mine has been secured by a company for
the honest purpose of development some
decisive results may be anticipated ln
the district. Besides the Piedad mlna
the company has acquired a number of
promising prospects in the samevicinity
more or less developed, an.d Mr. Kwiat
kowski states that work will be com
menced immediately with a large force
of men.
Senor Manuel Angulo of Ensenada,
Lower California, has arrived in Los
Angeles. The gentleman is the owner
of a number of valuable prospects ln
the Jacalitos mining district. One of his
best prospects is the Guata, which has
been developed to a considerable extent.
Assays recently made from some of the
ore went as high ass3so per ton. For the
past two years Senor Angulo has been
opening up these properties, the ore be
ing worked by means of an errastra,
and during that time he has not wanted'
for ready cash.
At the Aurora mine lni the Alamo they
are still cross-cutting for the ledge on
the 140-foot level. The indications ara
very favorable for their striking the pay
shoot in a short time. Last week they
struck a fine body of quartz in the cross
cut on the 180-foot level In the Monte
zuma mine. It prospects very fine, and
at the present writing they have not de
termined how wide the vein is. They
have gone in three feet but have not yet
struck the foot wall. In the Buena Vista
Joe Goyette, the owner, has struck a
fine 2%-foot ledge at a depth of sixty
five feet. Many samples of this ore ars
full of free gold andi the general average
is in the neighborhood of $100 per ton.
Work was commenced last week on the
air compressor to run the Band drills in
the Aurora and Montezuma mines, and
as soon, as the balance of the machinery
arrives these properties will start in on
a large scale.
W. A. Davis has returned from the
Viznaga mine at Alamo with a $4000 gold
1 brick from a twenty days' mill run with
a ten-stamp mill.
