Much Interest Is being taken In the nego
tiations for the yacht race next year for
the America's cup. This Is probably the
most historical event ln American sports
and Its result Is always regarded with
more Interest than any other event In
sports. Golf Is steadily on the Increase in
this vicinity and seems to be to society what
bicycling formerly was. Coursing Is popu
lar, too. Bicycling In this section, so far
as track racing Is concerned. Is dead. The
meet at Riverside on September 9th will
revive Interest somewhat. The Terminal
Yacht club may give some more races next
month. Fishing continues good, but the
hunters after big game have not met with
the usual success, as the dry season has
materially Interfered with that sport. There
will be a good fight before the Los Angeles
Athletic club September 2d. when Bob
Thompson and "Kid" Parker meet ln a 15
--round go.
The tournament at the new golf links at
Ocean View, South' Santa Monica, Satur
day, proved- very successful and was par
ticipated In by a large number of the best
players ln this section. The course is an ex
cellent one, and was highly spoken of by
the players and visitors. In addition'to the
participants, many society people attend
ed the tournament as spectators. The
scores made were very good, especially as
many of the players were not thoroughly
familiar with the course.
The usual crowd of coursing enthusiasts
were in attendance at Agricultural park
yesterday and the sport was really good.
Borne of the finest dogs ln the state partici
pating. The new Albuquerque dog. Credit,
made a fine showing with our local crack
a-Jaek Orpheum Lats. The latter had but
one day's training this week. One of the
greatest contests of the day was when
Dutch met Dutch in the contest between
Doncaster and' Fleetfoot, the latter dog
losing by only one point.
Orpheum Prince made the best showing
he ever did. The Ghost, as predicted. Is
sure to show In first money before many
more Sundays. Orpheum Lass, of crack
s-Jack fame, won the smallest purse she
ever did while In this city. Ormonde de
serves great credit and special mention
for fine performances during the day, stall-
Ing one of the prettiest kills ever seen on
the ground, turning three somersaults with
the hare ln his mouth.
Once more Mr. Parson's little Kitty Scott
proves what great mettle and good band
ling she has.
The results of the day follow:
First ties—Orpheum Lass 5, Van Tralle S
(bye); Fleetwood ,3 Breach of Promise t;
Ormonde 12. Home Rule 2; Little Cripple 1,
Van Brulle 10; Snooze 2, The Ghost 4; Dan

New Tork harbor will see next season the
greatest yacht race ln the history of the
world., says the New York Journal. There
Is just about an even chance that Sir Thom
as Ltpton will carry home to England the
great America cup. which has cost us sev
eral million dollars to keep on this side of
the water since we won it nearly fifty years
Sir Thomas Upton is a man who has made
J50.000.000 In the last IS years, and has gotten
Into the habit of getting whatever he
wants. He Is a tea merchant, and when
he decided that he wanted a title to his
name he gave $125,000 to a British charity
and was knighted By the queen. Now he
wants the America cup, and he is willing
to pay whatever It will cost to get It. If
money, and lots of It, will build and equip
a yacht that can outsail us, Sir Thomas Is
going to have It.
But If Sir Thomas Llpton has got unlim
ited means and willingness to come over
here to get the cup. there are three young
multl-mllllonalre Americans who will
match him, dollar for dollar, In building an
American cup defender. They are young
Cornelius Vanderbllt, .Ir.. Harry Payne
Whitney, son of William C. Whitney, and
Herman B. Duryea, a relative of the multi
millionaire starch manufacturer. They are
all expert yachtsmen and members of the
New York Yacht club, which Is the custodi
an and defender of the America cup. These
young men are not afraid of Sir Thomas
Llpton and his yacht. They think they can

of the craft will find that each yacht has

Track work has been temporarily sus
pended by the riders, on account of the
preparation of Athletic park for Pain's
spectacular production of the "Battle of.
Manila." The track has received no atten
tion for months past and l« In the worst
possible condition for fast riding. It seems
remarkable that there have not been seri
ous accidents.
At the Riverside meet the 9th of next
month there will be one of the large crowds
from this city that used to go In the good
dnvs when bicycle racing was popular here.
The following will compose the crew lo

Manager Post of the Orient wheel will
have a team consisting of Furman, Wlsner,
McCllntock and probably sosne others. Fur
, man's new racer arrived last week. It Is a
red, white and blue enameled machine and
weighs 20 pounds, and carries an 80 gear.
A party, consisting of A. C. Post, Furman,
PeTe Abel, Florentine, Guy Hill, Peame,
Cummings and several others, rode to San
ta Monica yesterday afternoon on their
wheels and returnee by moonlight.
There will be an Orient club organised
soon, open to riders of that wheel.
The Crescent Cycle club of Boyle Heights
has consolidated' wtrh tTte Oberon club of the

be carried on under the latter's colors.
The Pacific States Lawn Tennis associa
tion will hold Its annual fall tournament
for gentlemen's doubles a.nd ladles' singles

and Saturday, September 9th and 10th.
Invitations have been Issued to the mem
bers of the Southern California tennis
clubs, and they win doubtless send' several
of their strongest teams to participate.
The skillful and, comparatively easy man
ner ln which Miss Marlon Jones of Santa
Monica won the Southern California cham
pionship from Miss Sutton has made the
players in this part of the state more than
anxious to have her play here this year.
Miss Bee Hooper has not positively decided
Whether she will play or not, but the prob
abilities are that she will, providing a
The evolution of American yachting, so
far as single-stickers are concerned, can be
seen at a glance from the above sketches.
Just what the cup defender and challenger
of 1890 will be like no one but Nat Herreshoff
and William Fife can tell.
Unfortunately neither of the designers Is
given to discourse about his plans. Neith
er of the men takes the public? into his
confidence, so all that the average layman
can do Is to guess what the new boots will
look like.
From the old America of 1851 down to
fin de siecle racing machines, like the De
fender and the Valkyrie 111, Is a long step,
but a careful examination of their hulls and
shear plans will show that outside of light
construction and the cutting sway of dead
wood they are not so very far apart after
sufficient number of entries Is made. Miss
Hooper, Miss Hall, Miss Alice Colden Hoff
man, Miss Winifred Mason and at least
two young ladies from the Alameda club
are capable of making an Interesting con
test with the young lady from the south
land, so the chances are that the ladles'
event will prove equally as Interesting as
any former event of the kind ever held on
this coast.—S. F. Examiner.
Fred Lyon, Drs. W. W. Hitchcock, E. R.
Smith, A. C. Rogers and M. L. Moore re
turned last week from an extended tr.'p
through the southern portion of Oregon.
They first went up the Rogue river and
then came south Into the Klamath Lake
country. Mr. Lyon shot three deer and
Dr. Smith two. The largest trout was
caught by Dr. Hitchcock, It weighing ten
pounds, while Dr. Moot c' caught the next
largest, which we'ghcd- a bit over nine
pounds. The party went too early ln the
season and did not etc much game. They
were absent over a month. Mr. Lyon
says the country is Just as dry as this state,
there 'having been but little rain last win
E. K. Blades returned last week from a
deer hunt to Acton. He saw four .iocs and
two bucks and bag-sod one of the latter.
The mention of .he name of Henry T.
Gage as a cnndlTa'e tor governor prompt*
the remark that if he can bag vote* with
the same ease with which I have s-en hl-r,
bag ducks he will be a siure winner. This
reminds me of the meanest trick ever
played, say* a writer ln Field Sports. We
were on a day's duck'hunt with Gage and
ex-Mayor Hazard, the writer being the
only one to take any lunch. The flight was
good all day and I did not go to the wagon
until night. Upon my arrival my first
thought was of lunch and 1 1 began Inquiring
for it. Wlhile they picked' their teeth with
that innocent, all-for-the-dear-people ex
pression characteristic of the successful
(politician, they denied all knowledge of It,
I at last found a flask Chat was with It,
emptied of Its last drop, and, rode fourteen
miles home, hungry and dry, a wiser and
still hungrier man. Mr. Gage paid
for a good supper on our ar
rival ln town, on my promise to say noth
ing about the theft. But the statute of
limitation has expired; besides, his op
ponents must have something for a cam- !
paign document to spring upon him, and
this is fhe meanest thing I koiow of.
The Mongolian pheasants purchased by
the board of supervisors of San Bernardino
county last j-ear have not been colng well',
the young birds all dying, as well as some
of the old ones. It is the Intention now to
change the location of them to the Yu
calpe valley and see If change of location
and climate will have a better effect on
the Asiatics. The Recreation Gun club of
Redlands, which has the preserve ln the
Yucaipe, will take charge of them.
Interest ln cricket appears to be reviv
ing ln Southern California, and a scries of
matches is to be played at Santa Monica
this week. The games will be played on
the Polo club grounds and will start each
morning at 9:30. On Wednesday Los An
geles will play Duarte; Thursday the win
ner of Wednesday's match will play Santa
Monica, and on Friday the winners will be
opposed by a combled team. There are a
number of good cricketers in Southern Cal
ifornia Just at present and. a worthy ex
position of the game may be anticipated.
J. B. Lester, fhe crack bat of the famous
Gentlemen of Philadelphia team, Is ex
pected to play, and among others who wlil

All arrangements have been completed
for the boxing tournament to be held at the

Friday evening, September 2d. Kid Park
er has entirely recovered from the Illness
of last spring and looks the very picture
of health. He Is training at Santa Monica.
The evolution of the modern single-stick
er dates from 1885, when the Puritan, a
centerboard boat of moderate draft and
fair beam, designed by the late Edward
Burgess of Boston, beat a lead mine from
England, called Genesta, owned by Sir
Richard Sutton.
Genesta wasa narrow-plank-on-edgecut
ter of extreme type.
In 1886 Burgess gave the Mayflower a
little more beam, draft and sail plain, while
Galatea's keel went down even further than
Genesta's. The result was Just the same,
except that the American boat won more
In 1887 the designers of both countries
commenced to borrow Ideas from each oth
er, and while Burgess took off beam from
the Volunteer, Watson added beam to the
Thistle. Therefore, except for the Ameri
can boat's centerboard, they were some
what alike.
Thompson Is training at the athletic club
gymnasium and Is In splendid condition.
Both men will weigh In under 13" pounds,
and lovers of the sport may be assured that
It will be a great battle.
In addition to the main event, which Is
for fifteen rounds, the club has arranged
for two hot six round goes between Ben
Lewis and Mike Maeder and "Kid" Cham
ber and young Pierce.
The recent tragedy ln the Corbett fam
ily has. of course, resulted In the post
ponement of Jim's match with McCoy. It
Is probable that they will fight some tlrre
ln October or by the early part of Noveiui

Present Indications are that the Pacific
coast diog fanciers will soon break away
from the American Kennel club ana form
an organization of their own. C. B. Yan
dell, secretary of the Seattle Kennel club,
has received several letters recently about
tihe matter, and will soon, call a meeting to
select delegates or Issue credentials for
use at the organization meeting to be hel'i
ln San Francisco. The trend of all Co.. st
sportsmen Is to make them Pacific coast
affairs and separate them from the east.
The sooner this step Is takem the sooner
the sports in the northwest will become
healthier and Interest ln every line will
be taken.—Seattle Argus.
Members of the San Francisco Kennel
club have been Informed that their pro
posed rules will never be adopted, and
that the only change that will be made Ie
the rules Is to confine champion wins to
dogs shown 1n a few of the prlnclti.il shows
ln America. With such rules the clubs
outside of San Francisco might as well
disband at once and save the oost and dis
grace of failure, says the San Francisco
Field. Sports.
The Prima Donna Revisits the Flaoe ot
Her Birth in Sweden
Christine Nilsson has recently sold prop
erty ln Boston valued at nearly $200,000, It
reports from Europe are to be believed,
with the object of lr.ves.tlng this money in
her native land. Although she has lived,
since her retirement from the stage and
her marriage to a Spaniard, almost contin
uously in Paris, it has been observed that
she has frequently shown a desire to re
turn to her native land permanently. One
of her appearance before an audience of
any sise took place not long ago on one of
her visits to Sweden, when she was sere
naded by a large number of students from
one of the universities. When they had
finished she sang to them several Swedish
folksongs from her balcony.
Recently the Countess de Casa Miranda,
as she is known In private life, returned to
Sweden to visit the village of Snugge, ln
which she was born nearly sixty years ago.
She had not been there for forty years, but
the detail with which she remembered the
place astonished every member of the party
which accompanied her. Some of the orig
inal furniture Is staid still to stand ln the
little house which was Christine's first
home, and her first remark on entering one
of the rooms was:
"Ah. there is the little trundle bed on
which I passed so many nights!"
Later, when she was wa'klng along the
.road that leads to Vlslanda, tne countess
"There, by the big stone. Is a fresh
spring from which all the Utile girls ln the
neighborhood used to have to fetch water
for the coffee. I can remember It all as
clearly as If I had* done It only yesterday!"
She passed the night ln an inn neaT the
place of her birth, and the next morning
went to a nearby village In which some of
her youth had been passed. On the way
the carriage turned from the high road
through a private way. As the barrier was
removed for the vehicle to pass, the prima
donna said:
"How often have I ridden through this
gate. I can recognize the old stone pillars."
In 1893, Watson, ln the Valkyrie 11, In
creased the English yacht's beam to 22
feet and her draft to 17 feet 6 Inches, while
Herreshoft, in the Vigilant, designed the
deepest centerboard yacht ever turned out
—13 feet 6 inches without her board—and
gave her a beam of 26 feet. The dead
woods of both boats were taken away toon
unheard of extent, but the result was the
The last race for the cup, In 1895, brought
the rival designers still closer together, ex
cept that for the first time ln the history of
yachting the challenging boat had the
greatest beam and sail plan.
While, of course, no one can say what
Herreshoff will do next, well-Informed
yachtsmen think that! the Bristol designer
will give the new defender a little more
beam than his last boat. As for Fife, no
one can tell Just what sort of a boat he
will turn out until she is raced.
The old house was, of course, very much
changed, but there were sjti.ll points about
it which the woman who had played and
sang there as a child still recalled. The
old threshing floor was still Intact and The
same ln nearly every detail that it was for
"Here there used to be dancing so often
ln the old days," she said, with a smile,
"and I could never recall how many times
I have had to play my old fiddle for the
After she sought out six old friends ln
the vicinity and spent some time with
them. Mme. la Comtesse de Casa Miranda
returned to Stockholm, but not before she
had left with them substantial souvenirs
of her visit.
Christine Nilsson Is said to be one of the
richest of the retired singers, so she can
easily afford to be generous, to her child
hood friends, especially If they belong to
the same humble walks of life from which
she came. That the large fortunes earned
hy popular singers In this country today are
nothing new can be understood from the
fact that on one of her visits here ChrlsKlne
Nilsson earned J150.000. Jean de Reiske's
$"r,.000 and Calves JfiO.OOO seem small enough
(compared to that amount. Her profits on
other tours were almost as great, and hor
European successes helped to swell the for
tune she possesses today. Fortunate In
vetment was also an Important element In
her wealth.—New York Sun.
Bath Tubs and Progress
A plumber's account books furnish the
statistics by which to reckon the onward
march of civilisation.
The plumbers are very encouraging when
one talks with them about bath tubs. The
plumbers say that where one bath tub was
put ln fifty years ago, thousands are used
now; and each year the demand increases
and the fittings are Improved. We haven't
yet reached the point where we make such
a feature of "tubbing" as do our English
cousins. We do not splash so furiously
and audibly and heroically, but we are Im
Many physicians insist that bathing, like
everything else In this day, is being over
done. Some constitutions cannot stand
the shock of a cold plunge, and some suffer
from the exhausting effects of a hot bath.
College girls are particular sticklers on
cold baths. Some way or other, a cold
plunge seems, at college, to be associated
with advanced thought; and warm baths
are put aside with crochet work and wax
A Washington girl entered one of the
large colleges for women last year. She
was a nice girl, and a clever girl, but she
had never been exactly robust and had been
brought up after southern Ideas, which
didn't include cold plunges and advanced
thought. She made a favorable Impres
sion, but when It became known that she
didn't take cold plunges she lost caste.
The girl couldn't bear up under the re
proach. She resolved to do or die. She
screwed her courage, to the sticking point,
and one morning she shut her eyes, puck
ered up her mouth, held her breath, stepped
Into a tubful of icy water and said "O-o'h"
Then she dressed and went down to break
fast In triumph. She had proved herself
worthy of higher education. She took
three cold plunges and then she took pneu
monia; and the family doctor, when he
heard about those baths, said things which
would pain the earsi of a Guggenheimer.—

Ponce's Editor Was Not "Up" to the
Fredom of the Press
Ponce—Anions the first persons who
called upon General Wilson after he took
possession of this city as its military gov
ernor was the proprietor of the only news
paper published here. He was accom
panied by an interpreter, and as soon as he
could get an audience he asked, through the
Interpreter, whether his presses and tpye
'were to be confiscated. ,
"Of course not," answered General Wil
son, bluffly.
"Shall we be allowed to continue the pub
lication of our paper?"
"Certainly," said General Wilson. "Wb In
America believe in newspapers, and the
more there are printed the better we like
This seemed to gratify the proprietor of
the newspaper very much, but he was evi
dently still uneasy in his mind.
"What do you wish us to* say about the
coming of the Americans?" he asked; "or
would you prefer that we say nothing at all
about It? Shall you have a member of
your staff to tell us just what we shall say
about your coming?"
"No," the general answered, testily, "I
shall not have anyone tell you what to say.
You can tell the story of our coming, and
tell It ln any way you like, so long as you
tell the truth. I don't care how you tell
It, only don't say anything which will tend
to stir up the people to committing disorders
or to hostility to the United States."
"Very good, we will follow your directions
and you have my thanks. We will have
a proof of the paper for at i—,"
"Damn It!" shouted the general, "I don't
want to see your proofs. Go ahead and
tell the story just as It Is. We don't censor
our newspapers; we believe In a free press.','
The newspaper proprietor got out an an
nouncement that night that the publication
of his newspaper would be suspended after
that date, but that it would be succeeded
by a new paper, to be known as The New
Era, and that night Numero 1, Anno 1, of
this made Its appearance.—Chicago Inter
Commenting upon the fact that several
public houses in England are conducted by
clergymen, the London Chronicle says:

has managed tihe one local Inn for twenty
years, the profits of which goito local char

The long-distance telephone Is diminish
ing passenger travel. One prominent rail
road official Is quoted as saying that the
business of one of the limited trains be
tween New York and Chicago has been
practically ruined, by) the long-distance
telephone, and In his own case It has been
the means of enabling him to manage the
affairs of the road from his office to a very
large extent, where formerly he spent two
thirds of the time, traveling up and down
the line.
Coney Island has a new device to separate
the nickels from the multitude. It is a va
riation of the old-time maze. Wire netting
Is set up to form little avenues, with doors
here and there. The amusement consists
in deliberately losing yourself ln the maze
and then trying to find your way out. It Is
by no means a selfish pastime, for, inas
much as the netting: affords a clear view
right through, the efforts of the prisoners
to escape furnish fun for the outsiders.
