The annual trials ot tho Pacific Coast
Field Trials club will begin this morning at BnkorsJleld and throughout the week the eyes of the sportsmen throughout the state will be turned In that direction. There are already on the groundß some of the most noted dogs In this part of the country, or In the entire country, for that matter. The drawing for the Derby was mads yysterdny and at 10 oclock this morning the first brace of Derby performers will be put down on the field trial grounds: Field trials were formerly run under a heat system, similar to that used Irf courßlng matches. Tho various heat winners were pitted against each other through the different series and the dog last in was declared the final winner of first place. The runner-up took sec ond place, and other dogs In a similar manner took place in the order of their retirement. The heat system was aban doned by th* Pacific Coast Field Trials club some years ago, and resort has since been had to what is known as the "spotting system," a much more satis factory system of determining the mer lts of the dogs. I Under the "spotting system" the dogs are drawn In braces only for the first series. The conduct of the trials after the first series is entirely In the hands of the Judges. They can order down any two dogs they please, excluding from tbe second series such dogs as they think have failed In the first series to show sufflelent.quallty to entitle them to fur ther consideration. While a dozen dogs might run in the first series, it could happen that only two or three would be ordered down In the second series. The whole end and aim of the trial Is to determine tho best dog, and In arriv ing at that conclusion the Judges have an unlimited discretion as to the number and duration of the heata. The field trial ground near Bakcrsfield has been carefully preserved since ths opening of the season. Birds are said to be plentiful and should such prove the case the running off of the trials will be greatly facilitated. None of the doge now at Bakersfietd will be allowed to run on the club ground until put down for actual work in the trials. They have been given their preliminary work on similar ground located within a radius of fifteen or twenty miles from Bakers field. In the trials, therefore, all com petitors will have an equal chance. The club motto Is, "May the best dog win," and such Is the sentiment which will follow the dogs In all the excltlngjraces of the coming week. It is thought that the Derby will be fin ished with ease by Tuesday night, in whioh event the all-age stake will be started Wednesday morning. Should th* number, of all-age entries come up to expectations the stake is likely to last three days. The showing of quality Is strong, and should the competition prove close In the second series It is certain that the Judges will take ample time un pick the winners. The winning dojjs In both Derby and all-age stake will fare better this year than before. The number of certain starters Is sufficient to Insure generous purses, and. In addition, the decision of the Judges is to determine the ownership of three handsome trophies. THE WHEEL There Is not much doubt that the board of public works will report ad versely to the petition presented to the oity council some weeks ago, asking that an ordinance be adopted requiring all bicycles to be equipped with bells at all times and with lamps at night. The wheelmen's organizations *iave taken up the fight against the measure and the proposed ordinance will die a-bornln' If they have their way about It What they argue Is that If the present ordi nances which refer to bicycle rid ing were properly enforced there would be no necessity for any other measure. They claim that the great body of wheelmen are not breakers of this ordinance, but there are some few who willfully violate all regulations. The law-nblding wheelmen would willingly assist In the prosecution of the other class, and all they want is an Impartial enforcement of the speed and other or dinances. There is another measure the enforcement of which would greatly benefit all wheelmen and that Is the law against thrbwlng glass, tacks and other sharp substances Into the roadways. It Is unsafe to ride a bicycle In certain por tions of the city because of the habit some people have of throwing their sweepings Into the thoroughfares. ♦ ♦ ♦ Robert Gleason, a New Tork wheel man, has started for Los Angeles via the southern route awheel. He Is riding a 112 gear and expects to make the trip by July 4. He will ride down the Atlan tic coast to Florida and then skirt the Gulf of Texas and from there will come directly west. He 1b under contract with a New York tire company. The Denver Wheel club, the leading organization of cyclists In Colorado, has voted to sever connection with' the League of American Wheelmen The constitution originally contained a clause requiring each member to be a member of the league. ♦ ♦ ♦ Indianapolis having secured the na tional meet of the League of American Wheelmen has begun the construction of a fine track. The plans have been com pleted but the surface has not been de cided upon. Tho chairman of the track committee has written letters to all the prominent racing men In the country asking their preference between a wood SPORTS OF THE DAY and cement surface. He believes that inasmuch as the racing men have to use the track they .should be allowed to choose what the surface of It shoujd be. The meet will be held the first week In August and during the second week in that month there will be a series of road races In which the most famous long-distance men In the* world will take part. •*•♦•* The national assembly of the League of American Wheelmen, to be held In St. Louis next month, is already attract ing nttentlon of wheelmen all over the country. The session will bo the most Important one slnoe that held In Balti more when Class B was abolished and other radical changes were made. The question that Is of greatest interest to wheelmen In this part of the country Is* what action the league will take with reference to an effort to adjust the dif ferences existing between the L. A. W. and the C. A. C. C. It Is expected that some effort will be made to settle the war between the two organizations, but Just what will bo done In that direction no one knows at present. The action of President Orr of the Canadian wheel men's national organization in agree ing to recognise the California body will, It Is thought, result In an effort by the league to end the trouble. At this end of the line the wheelmen are ready for any sort of overtures. •♦• ♦* ♦ The national circuit this year will not cosne as far west as Denver, if the pres ent plans are followed. Applications for dates on the circuit have not begun to be sent In as yet. If the C. A. C. C. is not again merged Into the league it is prob able that a state circuit will be formed In California. ♦ ♦ ♦ The cycle race meeting held in Cairo, Egypt, recently, Is said to have been a great success, and the keen finishes aroused the natives. So successful was the affair that regular meetings are like ly to be seen In the future. COURSING At Agricultural park yesterday, de spite the high wind, there was a large attendance. The grand stand was well filled, a number of ladies being present while the general enclosure was pretty well crowded. The park, too, Is begin ning to attract a number of people who drive out In their own vehicles, for the view so obtained Is good and a maxl- PITCHER HARVEY Most Distinguished "south Paw" In Southern California. mum of pleasure Is derived from wit nessing the sport with a maximum also of comfort. The coursing began yesterday at 9:30, and so there could bo no excuse for grumbling on the part of everyone In asmuch as everyone got a long day's sport at small cost. Last Sunday's finals were first run off, after which the regular program was gone through. The.jacks were strong and swift and some of the courses were hotly contested, the dogs In most cases being well matched. William Cota, the flag steward, attracted con siderable attention by his superior horsemanship. Mounted on a fiery steed, which indicated an intense de sire to throw its rider, he elicited many comments and some applause for his horsemanship. Prof. Earlston seems to be pursued by a Nemesis, for the high winds again prevented his making the balloon ascen sion as they did two weeks age. The THIRD BASEMAN STEINPELDT Who will play this year with Cincinnati LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24, 1898 aeronaut attempted to carry out his part of the program, but the attempt ended disastrously, the.balloon being torn to pieces and narrowly escaped be ing burned up. Last week's ties and finals that were first run oft were as follows: Beauty beat Harry, 6-2; General beat Lady Lillian, 6-3, a bye. In the third ties Tiger beat Jack 11, J-Q; General beat Beauty, 6-3; after a tie, 3-3. After a bye, Tiger and White Chief, won by Tiger, 8-4, the final between General and Tiger was run, the former winning, 3-1, taking first money, with Tiger second and Beauty third. The purse for Sunday and Monday is $200 and It Is a sixty-four dog race, only the first run offs taking place yester day. The favorites were out In force and did not disappoint their friends. The run between Paloma (formerly Lln nie Lightning), owned by J. A. Duncan and J. Yon Hacht's Monday Noon was closely contested. It resulted in a tie, both dogs winning four points. In the second run Monday Noon Won, the score standing 11-4. T. Hartnett's Little Pearl and R. La Grills' Dawning also ran a tie, the score standing 3-3. Dawn ing is not much for looks but he can run, as he plainly showed in the second run, winning with the score standing 7-4. The score for the run offs was as fol lows: Juliet beat Caesar, 10-2; Our Sid beat Mose, 8-3; Juanlta beat Widow Lane, 6-2. The next race was between Hardy and Queen B and resulted in a tie, no points being Scored. A sensation was caused when Judge Ladd announced that Queen B. was disqualified, stating that the dog was In no condition to run and all bets_ were declared off. Hardy then ran a bye with Step About, wfnnlng. . After this episode the program con tinued as follows: Rowdy beat Flora, 9-6; Lady Lillian beat Whlttler Bob, 5-1; Rialto beat Quaker Maid, 14-6; Cy clone beat La Fiesta Queen, 14-3; Frisco beat Black Beauty, 6-2; Flying Jib beat Lady Grace, 3-0; Tiger beat Maid of Erin, G-2; Beauty beat Morning Star, 16-1; Captain Kidd beat Los Angeles, 7- 1; Klondike beat Ponto, 7-3; Sailor Girl beat Humboldt, 7-2; Gypsy beat Trilby, 3-1; Poker Davis beat Corelia, 14-11; Rag Baby beat Widow Lane, 8-11, a bye; White Chief beat Jack 11, 8-0: Hetty Green beat Mermaid, 7-3; Genera! beat Salvator, 22-7; Monday Noon beat Paloma (formerly Llnnle Lightning), 11-4; after a tie, 4-4; Sailor Boy beat Buck Massie, 4-1; Dawning beat Little Pearl, 7-4, after a tie, 3-3; Glrofle beat Grandpap, 4-0; Oscar beat Tick Dock, 8- 0; Red Dick beat Monday Morning (formerly Doncaster), a bye, 7-4; Crow beat Emerald, 12-1; Harry beat Queen A., 6-0; Romeo beat Palo Alta, 5-3, a bye; Fannie C. II beat California Slug ger, the latter dog refusing .to run. Racing will begin today at 10:30 a. m. and continue throughout the day, when the ties and finals will be run off. As a special feature today Bob Hack ney will drive his great running horse, Prince Hooker, against a triplet bicy cle, ridden by Fritz Lacy, W. H. Palmer and Walter Cromwell. AT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PARK There was a good day's sport yester day also at the Southern California coursing park, hut the enjoyment was marred very materially when, during the afternoon, a biting wind sprang up and chilled everyone to the bone. Otherwise the sport was good, most of the dogs be ing in excellent condition. There was not a very large crowd present, but as people kept going- and oomlng, very few remaining throughout the entire day the total attendance was fair. It jvas a sporty crowd, too, and at the betting stand quite a rushing busi ness was done. Of the runs calling for especial men tion the first occurred when the first ties were being run off. Snoose was pitted against Tip Steadman, and as the Jack ran across the field, hugging the fence, the dogs were slipped. Tip Steadman was in the lead along the line and turned the Jack. Snooze had swerved from the line somewhat, and while on a straight run this would have been disadvan tageous, as it happened, when the Jack was turned the opportunity came to Snoose to make a kill and he made It. A number of the onlookers were much disgruntled when the flag went up Indi cating that Tip Steadman and not Snooze had been adjudged the winner They forgot—if ever they knew—that iii coursing, the hound's performance is judged by points and not merely by the kill. In the case referred to Tip Stead man scored three and Snooze only two points. It Is only by a proper knowledge and appreciation of the points as they are made by the hounde that a coursing match can be thoroughly enjoyed. As a matter of fact, there is little of pleasure to be gained merely In witnessing a poor solitary Jack killed by a hound. But Tip Steadman did excellently well again later on. In running oft the third ties he ran against Reliance, which re sulted in a tie, but on the run-off Tip made the win. On running the final one of the most exciting courses of the day " B. B. & 8., against whom Tin ran. la a. good dog, but in this last course did not show the skill of Its opponent in the field. The Jack was a good runner and dodger, but the same was to be said of Tip, and he capped his points by making the kill. The following were the run-offs In the twenty-four dog stake, for prizes of $25, $16 and $10: Florlela-Olen Oak Vlotoress,- Black Beauty-Reliance, Corbett-Peacble. Specd well-fllr Walter Scoit, John Mltchel-Uraee Hatchett, B. B. & 8.-Pope, Little Beauty- Quldeo, Prince-Johnny Bull, Snooze-Mol lle. Tip Steadman-Fatiny, Queen J.-Shar key, Silk Jem-Three Toes. The ties were run as follows: First ties—Glen Oak Vlctoress and Re liance, Peachle and Sir Walter Scott, John Mitchell and B. B. & 8,, Quidco and Johnny Bull, Snooze and Tip Steadman, Queen J. and Silk Jem. Second ties—Reliance and Sir Walter Scott, B. B. & B. and Quideo, Tip Stead man and Silk Jem. Third ties—Reliance and B. B. & 8., Re liance and Tip Steadman. The'bye between Tip Steadman and Peachle was not run. Final—Tip Steadman, and B. B. & B. IN THE PRIZE RING Jimmy Tremble of this city has Ib sued a challenge to Bob Thompson, the colored lightweight who recently won several fights here. Tremble Is ready tp post any reasonable amount as a for feit. He demands, however, that Thomp son allow him to weigh in at 150 pounds. He will fight before any organization which offers a purse worth the contest ♦ ♦ ♦ The proposition to pull off the Sharkey- Jeffries contest In this city has been abandoned. It was proposed that the two men be brought here, as no difficulty was expected tn the effort to get per mission for the fight. The reason for this was the Inability of the managers of the two men to secure the permit In San Francisco. Letters were written from this c|ty to the two men, but their terms were so high as to make the fight here out of the question. If the men meet soon it will be next month In San Francisco. ♦ ♦ + The Solly Smith-George Dixon match is a go. The date has not been fixed, but both men have gone into training again and they will be able to get the required permit when the proper time comes + ♦ ♦ In answer to a correspondent In this city, the San Francisco Chronicle pub lishes the following in regard to weights: Weight limits for boxers are badly mixed. Several attempts have been made to get the leading authorities to gether to agree upon a new system, but nothing has come of it. The weights under the London prize ring rules were as follows: Featherweight, up to 118 pounds; lightweight, 118 to 133; middle weight, 133 to 154; heavyweight, over 154. The weights generally considered to be those of the Marquis of Queens bery rules are as follows: Feather weight, up to 122 pounds; lightweight 122 to 133; middleweight, 133 to 158; 142 pounds, others from 140 to 142, and heavyweight, over 158. Still, one author ity Insists that the middleweight limit Is or should be 156 pounds. As there are a great many men who can fight well at 140 or 142 pounds the so-called welter weight class was established. The lim its of this weiglit have been badly stretched. Some claim It Is from 133 to 142 pounds, others, from 140 to 142, and others again from 140 to 145 pounds. Bantams are under 105 pounds, though some stretch that limit to 108 pounds. A class seldom heard of is the "paperweights" or striplings of 85 or 90 pounds. The only definite limits for boxers are those laid down for ama teurs only by the Amateur Athletic union, and are as follows: Bantam weight, 105 pounds and under; feather weight, 115 and under; special class, 125 and under; lightweight, 135 and un- GARRETT COCHRAN, FOOTBALL, COACH II /~<,, ~1, .... *U„ TV-1 Garrett Cochran, the famous Prince ton end, will coach the University of California football team next season. Cochran's father has been opposed to having his son accept the engagement, but telegrams just received announce that Cochran has promised to come to California. It Is probable that Coch ran will come to the coast next spring to take charge of the preliminary work. Captain Percy Hall will aid him. Coch ran weighs 195 pounds. He is the heav iest end rush who has ever played on a big university team, but nevertheless he la exceedingly fast. dert middleweight, 168 and under; heavyweight ,over 158. ♦ ♦ ♦ Another attempt wilt be made to bring off a successful fight at Vallejo. Frank Burns of the Empire Athletic club of that city has matched Jack Stelznerand Jim Casey of Galveston, Texas, a pro tege of Young Dutchy. They are to box for twenty rounds on February Ist. Casey Is now hard at work at Burns' park la Vallejo. Stelsner is at the Crockett Athletic club, with Billy Lewis. Casey Is entirely unknown. •f ♦ ■* George Lavlgne and his brother Billy are now giving stage exhibitions in Cin cinnati and have been very successful. "Kid" Lavlgne was offered a purse of $1000 to meet Jim Franey, a Cincinnati 135-pound man, but he refused it. After pulling down from $5000 to $8000 for one battle, $1000 must seem small to the wonderful human battering ram. ♦ ♦ ♦ Fitzsimmons has threatened to sue the newspapers for libel lf they continue to print stories that his father and mother are in a New Zealand poor house. He says they are living comfort ably in a nice cottage and that he sends them money regularly. BASEBALL After having apparently won their second game from Santa Cruz by such a score as to make It impossible for them to lose, the new Los Angeles baseball club had about as narrow escape from defeat as they could have yesterday at Fiesta park. It was not a case of over confidence on their part, but of better playing toward the end of the game on the part of the visitors. Had there been one more Inning tho result would proba bly have been different, but as It was Los Angeles won by a score of 14 to 13. Fully 1500 people witnessed the game, and from the first Inning to the ninth the crowd's enthusiasm and appreciation of good plays were evidenced by their fre quent cheers and the usual kicks against some of the umpire's decisions. After the local club got far in the lead the sentiment of the crowd favored the vis itors and from that time the spectators began "pulling" and rooting for Santa Crus. The game was not like that of Satur day, In that It was a batting game, wherein the outfield had plenty of work to do, while on Saturday the game might have been called a pitchers' battle. There were many more errors yesterday, some of them costly ones, but they only added to the interest of the sport. At first It was a one-sided contest. In which the home team seemed to have every thing their own way, but aa the game progressed the visiting team Improved their work and, as stated, came near winning. For the first three Innings the Los Angeles club hit the ball as they pleased and made twelve runs, two of them earned. Then there was a change of pitchers and only two more scores were made by the home team. With the visitors the last three Innings were their best and eight men crossed the plate. It needed but one more to make a ten or more Inning game, but that one run was lacking. The score follows: ILOS ANGELES A B. R. BH. P.O. A. E.

The line up will be the same as yesterday except that Harvey will pitch for Los Angeles. GENERAL SPORTS Edward Hanlan, formerly world's champion oarsman, was elected an alder man in the Fourth ward In Toronto at Monday's election. A pronounced innovation is likely to be introduced at Harvard shortly in the shape of a prescribed course of physical training for freshmen. Jimmy Patterson, politician, chicken fancier and importer of homing pigeons and fine dogs, died last week in New York. He backed Paddy Ryan against Sullivan. George Slier has been Anally suggested to referee the Sharkey-Jeffries fight. Sharkey has objected to every one not of his own naming, and the suspicion is abroad that he wants another Wyatt Earp. John Hughes, known as "the Lepper," who made 150,000 as a long-distance pe destrian, and who was famous the world over many years ago, has been commit ted to Blackwell's island tor three months, for being disorderly. Hughes Is old and penniless, and for two years has lived off the charity of old-time friends. During a meeting of the Baptist Min isterial association in Indianapolis a few days ago. Rev. O. T. Conger delivered a lecture on "Faclology," and said Kid* McCoy, the pugilist, had as intellectual a face as Rudyard Kipling. Phil Casey and ex-Alderman James Dunne of Brooklyn will make a trans continental tour In April and will play the crack handball teams of all the big cities from New York to San Francisco. These two men are each more than 50 years of age. They have met young and old, season after season, and still they are first. They declare that this Is to be their farewell tour. Bob Fitzsimmons is not what is called a drinking man, but he has been indulg ing in an odd tipple of late. It is com posed of one part whisky and two parts Worcestershire sauce. It is said to be a great bracer. Amos Rusie of the New York baseball club is once again, according to aver ages just completed by N. E.
