Dutchman Too Much for Sir
Walter at Saratoga.
BRIGHTON BEACH, N. V., Aug.
22.— That uncertain quantity, The Friar,
was again in evidence in the Brighton
cud over two and a quarter miles, with
but three starters fating the issue. Ben
Brush, packing 130 pounds, was installed
a warm lavorite and proved the whipper
in. The Friar made all the running and
at the end only downed Sunny Slope,
which came with a rush, the scantest of
heads in 3:56J^. In the Electric handicap
at six furlongs for two-year-olds Hamburg
shouldered his 132 pounds and won in
romping fashion in I:l4'^ In all three
choices captured purses. The truck was

shows that the snort is as popular as ever.

NEW YORK. N. V., Aug. 21.— Tom
Sharkey, the sailor pugilist, who went to
Ireland some lime ago, arrived on the
Umbria, accompanied by a younger
brother. "I have returned for the express
purpose," he said, "of fixing the necessary
details of the match with Maher. It ap
pears to me the match is as good as made,
•dthougn not one of the clubs hereabouts
has made another decided bid. As soon
as Maher gets here and his managers are
convinced we mean business offers will
crop un rapidly." He declares he did not
meet Maher abroad. He will begin train
in on Stuten Island next week.
THREE Rr MARK ABLE HEATS
At Washington Park liar Pointer
Again Lowers the Colors of
Joe Patchen.
CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 21.— 1n three
straight heat-— time, 2:02, 2:04^ and
2:o4 Star Pointer to-day again ami de
cisively lowered the colors ol Joe Patchen.
Sixteen thousand people saw the race at
Washington Park, 'lhe spectators were
rewarded by a race, one heat of which was
about the most sen-ational ever witnessed.
In the first heat o; the great match Star
Pointer and Joe Patchen crossed the finish
line on so nearly even term« that those
most careful in their observations will
nev<-r be able to satisfy themselves. The
mistake might not have been ttie judges'
in declaring Star Pointer the winner.
Moreover the time wa- the fastest for a
first heat in harness ever raced. In the
second heat Sar I'oin won with ease
and he took the third by a length.

j LOWERS A COAST RECORD.
Wheelman Krafts Covers five Miles
in 12:31 on the Santa Rosa
Track.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., Aug. 21. — The
bicycle races at Cycling Park this after
noon were well attended. The feature of
the meet was Krafts' five-mile ride, un
paced, against time. Owin * to tie slow
ness of the track and a baffling breeze the
speedy little Teuton failed to get under
the world's record (11:58 2-5), but he
lowered the coast record from 13:09 to
12:31, a cut of eight seconds. Before
Krafts made his supreme effort he had
two hard falls while participating in other
events. Had a.l conditions been favor
able he certainly woui l have lowered the
world's record. He is at present the
world's twenty-mile champion.

The second event was a one-mile handi
cap for amateurs. The final heat resulted
in a tie between Ben Noonan, B. C. W.,
who started from the scratch, and P. G.
Peck, B. C. W., who had a fifteen-yard
start. G. A. Wyniun. Acme, ten yards,

NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 21.— Twenty
thousand people saw the diminutive
Welsh rider, Michael, defeat the American
j rider, Starbuck, of Philadelphia, in the
thirty- three-mile race at Manhattan Beach
to-day by two miles. Michael rode In tine
lorm, while Starbuck rode listlessly, and
at t mes in much distress. His tire became
; deflated and he used another wheel, but
j this did not suit, and he finally went back
\ to his old wheel, which bad been repaired.
j Michael made a new American record for
j fifteen miles in 25 minutes 11 seconds, and
a new hour record by covering thirty miles
, and one lapin that time; also new records
from fifteen to thirty-three miles. Michael

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, AUGUST 22, 1897.
HARDY DOWNING
WINS A PURSE
Tacoma's First Races
Under C. A. A. C.
Auspices.
The San Jose Wheelman Takes
the Twc-Thirds Mile
Handicap.
Sharlck of the Sound City Victor In
the Professional Event at
Two Miles.
TACOMA, Wash., Aug. 21.— 0n the
Pierce County fair grounds to-day was
the first bicycle meet since the Tacoma
riders sec ded from the League of Ameri
can Wheelmen. The meet was under the
auspices of the Tacoma Race Promoters'
Association, the newly organize! branch
of the California Associated Cycling
Clubs. The afternoon's programme com-
prised a two-thirds of a mile and a two
mile handicap professional races and am
ateur handicap races of one and five
miles. The meet brought together the
crack riders of California and Puget
Sound, and each of the two professional
races were splendid contests.
The two-thirds mile was an open event.
It was brilliantly won by Hardy Downing
of San Jose, with W. B. Vaughan of San
Diego second and George Sharick of Ta
coma third. Sharick is known as "the
wonder of the Northwest." His friends
expected he would win. Viewed from a
local standpoint, it seems that Sharick
thought he had to beat Ziegler of San
Jose, the racing partner of Downing, the
winner. Sharick accordingly trailed
Ziegler for nearly two lap**, or until they
they were entering the end stretch. See
ing that Ziegler was not trying to win he
started alter Downing, and made a mag
nificent effort. He closed a large gap,
passing several other riders and was able
to win third place.
In the two-mile handicap, local riders
had better luck. On the fourth of the six
laps Ziegler, who had started at scratch,
pulled out. This left eleven riders on the
track. They rode so closely bunched,
with Sharick pocketed in the middle so
completely that escape seemed impossi
ble. The positions of the eleven riders re
mained relatively the same until the last
lap. When they had nearly reached the
stretch, Sharick succeeded in emerging
from the crowd, cut down the lead and
crossed the line first. Bartholomew wa*.
second and ••Jack" Sharick third, Tacoma
riders thus winning all three places.
Over 1000 enthusiastic wheelmen saw
the races. To-night a purse of $100 or
over is being raised, which will result in
the matching of Sharick an 1 Ziegler for a
race to-morrow afternoon. Friends of
both men are betting eagerly on the re
sult.
To-day's races were the first held on the
new one-third mile track at the county
fair grounds. Riders were very much
pleased with the track, which is a fac
simile of the noted tracks at Washington
and Louisville, with two short turns and
two long stretches.

SACRAMENTO, Cal.. Aug. 21.— A pris
oner named hittle, who was arrested to
day for robbing a United States mail
car at the depot in this city, was almost
successful in an attempt to break out of
jail to-night. Hittl-s was arrested by
Officer Talbot and made a boast that he
could not be kept in jail. The manner in
which the remark was made aroused the
suspicions of the officer and an investiga
tion was made. It was f und that Hittle
was wanted in Ogden, ah, where he
bad broken out of prison eirly this week.
Hittle was locked in a ceil with a forger
named Reed, and a little before 9 o'ciock
this evening sounds were heard by a
Chinese prisoner which led to the giving
ot nn nJartu. Hittle had dug through a
brick wall, and in a few minutes would
have been at liberty.

BONES OF PREH.STORiC MAN.
Skeleton of a Giant Found in a
Rude Sepufcher on Pine
Ridge.
UKIAH, Cal., Aug. 21— The discovery
of the bones of a giant in a rudely exca
vated hole in a limestone rock on the
western side of Pine Ridge has aroused
considerable interest among local anthro
pologists. U. N. Briggi and Frank Patton
unearthed the remains of what appeared
to be a prehistoric man la^t week while
out hunting on Pine Ridge, it being
Quite warm the hunters had sought a
shady place at the base of a tall limestone
cliff. They sat lor an hour or so enjoying
the soft breezes wafted from the valley
beyond, and Briggs in poking around in a
hole in the rock uucarined several bones.
They appeared to be those of a human be
ing. Upon closer scrutiny it was discov
ered that the cavity in which the bones
had been deposited was evidently the
work of human hands. The walls had
been cut with a sharp-pointed instrument
and the entrance to the tomb or sepulcher
had at one time been closed up. The
hunters examined the tomb closely and
found a number of bones of the leet and
hands and a portion of the skull. The re
mains will be sent to the Smithsoniau In
stitution.
