THE FIELD OF SPORT According to the opinions expressed by leading oarsmen, the regatta which will be held at El Campo in the near future will eclipse, in point of attendance, any thing in the way of an aquatic contest that has been held near this City in years, j The oarsmen who are booked to enter the struggle for medals and glory are training hard and will be in splendid form on the day of the races. Although 4000 admirers of coursing at tended the meeting held last Sunday at lngleside, the managers of tho park ex pect a still larger attendance to-morrow, as the crack dogs of the coast are entered j for the contests. The game-shooting season will soon be | on, and as a matter of fact the trap-shoot ing clubs are bringing their programmes to a close. Mountain quail and grouse can be shot on September 1, but valley quail and duck must not be killed until ! October 1. Tne rifle-shooters will be strongly rep resented to-morrow at the San Rafael ranges, as tbe annual shooting festival of the Schuetzen Club will be finished. Handball, baseball, angling, tennis, cricket, wheeling, etc., are all popular pastimes that carry goo i patronage. THE WHEELMEN. Late Advices From Terrill Brothers. To-Morrow's Record Trials.; The most interesting cycling news this week is a communication received by the editor from the Terrill broth ers, the San Francisco professional racers, who left here several months ago for Europe with the intention of trying their fortunes on the foreign tracks. But little had been heard from them up to this time, and many have been the queries as to what success they were meeting with over there. Harry F.Terrill writes from Paris, under date of August 7, as follows: Your letter reached us here to-day on our return from the eastern part of France where we have been racing. So far we have not done very much racing, as we have not yet pot wheels to suit us. We nave raced at about six race meets aud I have won two first places, two seconds and one third. Bob has won three second and two third places. We have not raced here in Paris yet, but I will race here next Sunday. Eon goes to Rouen in the western part of France. We write lor engagements and get all expenses paid before we leave Paris. We have been to Liege, Bel gium, Munich, Germany, and will go to Italy the first part of next week to bo gone three weeks, They pay us a good sum in advance money to go there. We expected when we came here to have to learn some new tricks in bicycle riding; but I hnve not yet seen a bit of teamwork or tricks of any kind. The Americans can give the Frenchmen cards and spades at tricky ridinu. Bob and I have the reputation of riding tricky because when we ride alongside of a man we ride very close to him and in passing we pass very close. When they pass a rider they pass very wide. The riders here are the fairest I have ever seen and the easiest to get along with. They have very few falls. We are getting along finely, as we travel together usually and get anything we want. I find the traveling, however, much more com plicated than it is in America. Was glad to receive the clippings from The Call, which have kept us wed posted on cy cling affairs at home. We were glad to read that the Bay Citys won the twenty-mile asso ciation race. All the riders here want to know why we wear the Maltese cross on our racing suits, and the result is the Bay Citys are pretty well advertised in France. Hope you will continue to send us the news from home, as we are very glad to get it. Will write you again at length when we get back from Italy. With regards to all the boys. Sincerely yours, Habey F. Tereiix. The success of the Terrills over there will be gratifying news to their many friends here. It was the general impres s-ion here that they would have a pretty hard time, as many of the Eastern cracks have met with decisive defeats on the French tracks. After the Terrills have stayed there a while longer and become more accustomed to the tracks they may be expected to do still better. The following pacemakers have been selected to assist Erminio Bozio in his trial against the world's 20-mile road record to-morrow: Wyman ana, Boite, Bed bury and Galindo, Acme Club; Deacon arid Rosenheim, Reliance; Coulter and White, Theisen and Birdsall, Strei and Ward, Californias; Alborelie and Corbett, Stevens brothers; Kroetz, Loos and Cellier (triplet), Olympics; Egan and Hamann, Lind and Brogi, Roach brothers, Cordy and Jaegling.Grimmenstein and Connors, Imperials. The start will be at 10 o'clock from Fitchburg, thence twice around the tri angle at San Leandro. The following will officiate at Bozio's record trial: Judges — F. H. Kerrigan, B. C. W.; T.J. Winslow, I. C. C. ; Charles Albert Adams, O. C. W. Timers Georee P. Wetmore. B. C. W.; J. F. Burns, I. C. C; W. T. McFarlane, L C. C. Umpires- John Davidson. B. C. W. ; Guy Frost, S. F. R. C; A. J. Menne, B. C. W. Under the direction of Captain H. D. Hadenfeldt the Olympic Club Wheelmen will have a watermelon run to Stockton to-night and to-morrow, taking the steamer at Broadway wharf to-night at 6 o'clock. M.G.Curtis of the Encinal Cyclers of Alameda, who will try lor the Oakland- San Jose record to-morrow, will have the following pacers: A. E. Cumbers. Encinal Club, from Broadway, Oakland, to Brook lyn; C.N. Bolte, Acme, from Brooklyn to High street, Fruitvale; De Fosee brothers, S. F. K. C, from High street to Alvarado; Stevens brothers, S. F. R. C, Alvarado to Milpitas; Tony Dcimas, San Jose, from Milpitas to San Jose. Cumbers must beat two hours and thir teen minutes to get under the record. The Bay City Wheelmen and the Im perial Cycling Club propose holding a race meet at the Velodrome, on Sunday, September 19. The principal feature wilt be a match race at twenty miles between Kraft and Bozio, each to furnish his own pacers and as many as he chooses. L. A. Young of the Capital City Wheel men of Sacramento is in the City, the guest of Arthur H. Terrill. Considerable surprise was expressed at the list of events given in The Call Thursday for the meet at Sacramento on September 12, when it was noticed that Sacramento had been awarded the one mile C. A. C. C. championship, to be com peted for by professionals and amateurs together, and the star race of all the cham pionships. This was being held back for Santa Ross, but as stated in The Call last Saturday, the Santa Rosa promoters have been very dilatory in their arrangements for the meet on September 9 there, and the racing board decided if it did not hear from them early this week to award the championships elsewhere. No word be ing received, Sacramento was awarded the mile yesterday, and the others will doubtless be given to the meets to be held in this City. As stated in The Call on Satur day last, the Olympic Club Wheelmen will bold a big meet at the Velodrome early in October, and have set the date at Sunday, October 3. They will cater almost entirely to the amateur riders. Western Sports is the name of new publication published here, which made its first appearance Thursday. It is de voted to cycling, the gun and. rod, tennis, yachting, the kennel and other sports, liberally illustrated and presents a fine appearance. Clarence N. Ravlin is the editor-in-chief, and he is supported by the best writers on the coast on the various topics covered. -•••■■•-• Carl Abendroth, who was the' crack amateur of the Northwest last year, and I is now racing as a professional, has joined the C.'a. C. C. and recently raced under Its rnles at the Portland and Tacoma meets. He won a mile and a quarter handicap from scratch and took a promi nent place .in every professional event that was run. It is hoped he can be in duced to come to California after the meets there are over. To-morrow the Chance Acquaintance 1 Cyclers will go to Bear Valley, in Marin County, wheeling from Point Reyes to I the fish hatchery, Country Club and I other points of interest. A largo number of ladies and gentlemen will make the trip, taking the 8 o'clock Sausalito boat and train to Point Reyes, the round trip being but $1 in specially reserved coaches. | This is a fine trip for new riders, as it is ; short and pleasant. Teams will be pro vided for those' who do not intend to cycle. Two Irish societies, the Fermanagh and Tyrone County associations, I believe.will picnic at Shell Mound to-morrow, and have advertised some bicycle races for cash prizes. The racing board desires to notify all amateurs not to compete in these events as they are unsanctioned, ana CARL ABENDROTH, the Crack Professional Rider of the Northwest* because the prizes are cash, and profes sionals are also* barred for the first reason given. Suspension is the penalty for non compliance with this mandate. The local organ of the L. A. W. boasts that the Sharick brothers and none of the prominent Northwestern riders competed at any of the meets recently given ere under the auspices of the C. A. C. C. The organ is in error in this, as a perusal of the events held at Tacoma last Saturday and Sunday will show. In shori, all the best riders of the Northwest are now rid ing under the protection of tbe C. A. C. C. The meet at Sacramento has tbe mile championship, and in this connection it should be noted that while both amateurs and professionals may compete together for this race the prizes must not be higher than the maximum amount allowed for amateur events, and must be merchandise exclusively. Further, there will be but one medal — a gold one for the winner — none for second or third places. The meet promoters have therefore announced one gold medal, and merchandise in four prizes valued at $35, $20, $12 SO and $7 50. A week from to-morrow conies the Golden Gale Cycling Club's five-mile roau race over the San Leandro - Hay wards course. .[:■. ,'.i ; . : -^p ,4-i-- : *'*vj Next Saturday afternoon the members of tbe Cycle Board of Trade will start on their six days' outing in Lake County. C. J. Atwater, who officiated as secre tary of the Capital City Wheelmen's race meet committee so long and efficiently, has gone East to study dentistry and James E. Little now fills the position. A. B. McDonnell, the greatest of Ameri can road-riders, passed through Seattle last week en route to the Klondike coun try with his wife. In an interview he is quoted as saying that if Kraft could ride in 48:56 twenty miles with six right angle turn- he "ought to be able to lower his (McDonnell's) straightaway record of 46:01 over a good course straightaway. The Mountain View Cyclers have elected the following officers: George Tay lor, president; Frank B. Abbott, vice president; James G. Kennedy, secretary; William M. Garliepp, treasurer; who, with P. M. Clark, Waiter Jones and H. E. Weilheimer, will constitute the board of directors. The Washington division of the C. A. C. C. has been organized with the following officers: Georce M. Schee-ier, consul general; E. W. McNaughton, secretary treasurer; E. G. Dorr, racing board rep resentative; W. E. Newton, "handicapper. Hamilton's paced mile record of 1:39 1-5 made at Coronado March 2, 1896, which has withstood so many attacks, has at last been lowered. At Boston recently Eddie McDuffie brought it down to I:3BJ^, the intermediate times being: Quarter' 23 seconds; one- third, 32 1-5 seconds; half! 49 2-5 seconds; two-thirds. 1 minute 5 3-5 seconds; three-quarters. 1 minute 13 3-5 seconds; mile, 1 "minute 38»£ seconds. On the same day Lucien Lesna, the French long distance champion, established new American paced records from eleven miles up to thirty. The Pathfinder Cycling Club has elected THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 1897. the following new officers: Harry Good man, president ; T. W. Fianigan, secretary and captain; William Levy, treasurer; Joseph Clunan, first lieutenant; Andrew Budzalena, second lieutenant. Ed C. Toie, an old-time member of the Bay City Wheelmen, writes me from Lon don that cycling is booming on the Conti nent. Ho has visited every country in Europe on his travels. He says that the following prominent American manu facturers are now in London : Colonel Pope and Messrs. Yost, Spalding, Brewst-r and Gormnlly. Mr. Overman was ex pected on the next steamer. He says that he met theTerrill brother* in Paris. They were doing well. E. E. Buckle ton sailed for New York August i. Fred Chandler, B. C. W., is in Hamburg, and Rube Van Zant of the same club is in London. Clinton R. Coulter, the popular Olympic Club racing man, writes denying the truth of the Eastern report that he has forsaken the C. A. C. C. since he went back East and applied for reinstatement in the L. A. W. Coulter says he is as strongly allied to the California organization as ever and predicts that in less than a year tbe L. A. W. will lose control of racing entirely and that it will be taken up by an association of track-owners and State associations and that California will be among the first to be recognized. 1 The cycling editor of an evening paper, after a bad attack of indigestion, goes on to say that when the Bay City and Im perial clubs discovered that the Olympics proposed giving a race meet in October they set about to injure the project as much as possible and arranged to promote one themselves beforehand to remove the clamour from the Olympics' carnival. What rot ! The fact is the firat news that the Olympic Wheelmen intended giving a race meet was published in The Call last Saturday, and it was then only a rumor, which was verified early this week. The Bay City and Imperial joint project was known to a select few a week previous. In a conversation I had with Judge Ker rigan about it fully two weeks ago be spoke of the matter and said that the best date would be a week after the Sacramento meet, on September 12, as the men would be in the best of shape then. It Mr. de Clark would get closer to the fountain head of real, truthful news he would get the facts in such matters. It is hard to see how a meet held here two weeks before the Olympic meet could injure it in any way. My opinion is it would help it, as the people would again be awakened to the sport and the Olym pics saved that much preliminary adver tising. Everything is peaceful among the clubs now, and any one who tries to ruffle the harmony by circulating unfounded stories will find himself in hot water. Mr. Clark had better continue caring for the destinies of the Encinalltes and leave the big San Francisco clubs to themselves. The Bay Citys did not combine with the Imperials to injure the Olympics, but be cause they wanted to bring Kraft (Bay City) and Bozio (Imperial) together on the track at twenty miles, and it could best be done by their combining. Mr. Clark should know, anyway, that when the Bay Citys get into imbroglios they do not ask the assistance of other clubs. But there is no intention to antagonize any interests in the present case. Spalding. GUN AND GAME. Came Warden Mogan and the Courts— Curlew and Plover at Mount Eden. The clubs that take an interest in trap shooting are rapidly winding up the sea son's sport, "as on October 1 the season for shooting wild duck and quail will open. There will be only one shoot to-mor row, and that is to be held under tho auspices of the Lincoln Club at San Bruno. Live .birds will be trapped. On Sunday, September 5, the Encinals will meet at Birds Point, the Golden Gates at Alameda Junction and the California Wing Club will hold its final live-bird shoot at lneleside grounds. On Septem ber 12 the Olympics will hold their last blue-rock shoot at lngleside, the Encinals will convene at Birds Point, the Reliance at Webster street and the Empires at Alameda Point. • E. F. Preston, the well-known attorney, will leave to-night for a two weeks' hunt ing and fishing trip at Lake Tahoe. John Bereez, Billy Brown, H. Lucas, E. Hatch, C. Jackson and J. Hotaling enjoyed an excellent day's sport on the Mira Monte preserve, near Novato.on Thursday. Sev eral deer were snot at. but only two fell to the rifles of the sportsmen. A sportman who visited Mount Eden last Sunday stated that curlew and plover are very plentiful on the marshes, and that quite a number of sprig were seen flying over the salt beds. "E. C. Saxe and Dr. L. Hitchcock re turned from Shasta County last Tuesday after enjoying a very pleasant vacation. Among the trophies of 'the chase they proudly exhibited to their friends Were two bear skins, but an expert bear-hunter who examined the pelts detected peculiar marks on the parts which encompassed the necks oi the animals from which they were taken. The hunter said he had not the least doubt ihut the bides covered the flesh of bears that were held in captivity by strong chains for many moons, but that tbe bears may nave been shot by the hunters at short range. Game Warden Mogan is accomplishing good service in arresting commission merchants and the proprietors of restau rants for telling game out of season. The warden would unquestionably prove to be a man of inestimable value to the sporting interests of tbe State bad he the support of Police Court Judges. But those dignitaries of the bench cannot seemingly understand why any man should be pun ished for selling game out of season, and as a matter of course every case that comes up ior a hearing is summarily disposed of, much to the chagrin of the Game Warden and the sportsmen of the City who should "remember, those things" when the gen tlemen who have no respect themselves for the game laws are looking for a second term of office. The Game Warden caused the arrest of a man named Bernstein at '25 Eddy street yesterday lor selling quail. Bernstein is the proprietor of a restaurant and he charged the Game Warden $1 for quail on toast. It is Klondike nuggets to peanuts that the case will b: dismissed when it comes up before a Police Court Judge on Monday. This is what the Breeder and Sports man says: Unless the Folice Courts can bo taught that game laws must be respected the sumo as other laws, the Game Warden and Fish Com missioners, as far as their game work is con cerned, might as well go out of business: Even when the strongest possible evidence is introduced the verdict is nine times out of ten, not guilty. The tenth time the guilty party is fined $5, costs oi court or such nom inal amounts. The City consumes the greater portion of the game nil ed in Central Califor nia, and if it is allowed to enter the market out of season, the game law is practically a dead letter. We can see but one way out of this dif ficulty, ana that is lor the sportsmen ot this City to band together and engage an able at torney,one whose ttandingissufliciently high, to bring tho Police Court Judges to their senses. Let this attorney prosecute the cases at the sportsmen's expense, and a few convic tions will stop the tratlic. The following communication to the sporting editor from Portland, Or., is self explanatory: Portland, August 24, 1897. The demand for permits to ship Chinese pheasants beyond the boundaries of the State has Increased to such an extent that Gamo Protector McGuire proposes to closely Investi gate every application and determine whether or not the birds have been bred and raised in captivity. Mr. McGuire has reason to believe that the law is being violated. The birds allowed to be taken from the State must be fully domesti cated, bred and raised iv confinement, and the person selling the same lor such purpose must make an affidavit to such effect. Within a short time permits have been issued to .'. J. Hill for 105 birds, and now there is one made for 400 pairs of pheasants to be sent to the Game and Flsh Commission. Yes:ei(lay a permit was Issued for the sending of two to the City of Mexico, and others, have been granted to send Chinese pheasants to lowa, Ohio, Kansas. California, in fact, nearly every State in the Union. It is the order for 400 that has awakened the suspicions of Mr. McGuire. He is perfectly willing that the Fish and Game Commission ers of California should have that many birds, but he seriously doubts if there are that many fully domesticated so that they can come witnln the law for shipment. A man living at Eugene named McClanahan has the con tract to furnish these pheasants, 800 in num ber, for $2 50 a pair. McClanahan once served as a Deputy Kisn and Game Warden, but was caught violating the law lie was supposed to enforce and convicted therefor. Mr. McGuire has information that McClanahan raises about sixty pairs in his own coops, but uot more than this number. The balance he ex pects to purchase and is purchasing now, if Mr. McGu-.re's information is correct. it has also been learned that McClanahan sought legal advice as to his right to purchase now for such Durooses, and was told that tne law prohibited buying at this time of the year for any purpose, He slates that he expects to catch the young birds next month by running them down on horseback; but Mr. McGuire will probably see that he does nothing of the kind. When he applies for a certificate for shipment, claiming that he has raised tho birds, the game protector will have bis inn ing. There is no doubt that many young pheasants are now being caught. Owing to the forwardness of the season the birds are now of good growth, and the tempta tion to anticipate the open season a few weeks is particularly strong. Reports from the val ley are to the effect that pheasants are being shot, and on Wednesday Mr. McGuire made a trip to Salem to inquire into some reported violations of the game law. It is his intention to prosecute any one found guilty of violating the law, and to secure conviction of the trans gressors if possible. THE ANGLER. Grand Fishing Near the Mouth of Eel River — Dolllver's Big Catch. Latest intelligence from Truckee is to the effect that the trout of the river, which have been feeding for several weeks on the crustaceous matter on the rocks, have now turned their attention to the flying insects which float on the surface, and, as a consequence, anglers are looking for ward to good sport in the very near future. Among some of the prominent fly casters of this City who will use the rod and gun to good i fleet during the next few weeks in the vicinity of Boca are Senator S. Hall, Thomas Horatio Casey, Judge Carroll, J. Blackburn, E. .F. Preston, James Stratton and others who will be heard from later on. Frank Dolliver had a magnificent day's fishing last Sunday at Crystal Springs. He was the only man at the lake who re turned with a well-filled basket of black bass. Frank says that shrimp did the business, and as his veracity is beyond question we will have to let it go at that. John Butler took a flying trip to Point Reyes a few days, ago, and he informed his friends that he caught one dozen large trout at a point called the rockpool and lost one six-pounder. Black bass fishing on Russian River still continues to improve, and some beaut'.ful fish . were taken during the past two weeks. San Andreas Lake still continues to at tract' many anglers, and although the fishing has been poor this year a marked improvement has been noticed during the latter weeks of the month. Reports that excite the passion of lovers of fishing have arrived from Eel River. Cast Sunday an angler caught fifty-six trout that ran from haif a pound to two pounds in .weight and 1 six steel heads of good size. A letter from John Williams of Fortuna states that the Wilson spoon and Bonn's Royal Coachman fly are the killing lures. The writer finished his let ter by cautioning his friend not to pur chase imported flies, as they are not suf ficiently strong in construction to hold the fighting fishes of the Eel • River, many of which scale ten pounds.. Fish Commissioners Vogfllsane and Habcock have just returned Irom White Rock Lake, and they report having had only fair success. They did not see any persons violating either the fish or game laws. Champion Fly Caster Walter Damon Mansfield is expected to arrive from Chi cago to-day. The Fly Casting Club will banquet the conquering hero on Tuesday evening. Judge John Hunt will be toast master on this occasion. The United States Civil Service Commission announces that on Wednesday, September 1, 1897, It will hold examinations at Washing ton and at other cities where there are compe tent boards of examiners for the purpose of establishing a register from which appoint ments may be made to the position of fish culturist, under tbe supervision of the United States Commission of Fisu and Fisheries. In addition to the usual educational exam ination applicants will be examined on the subjects of geography and fish culture. Tnere are four clesses of fish culturists, as follows: Those engaged (I) in pond-culture operations; (2) in salmon, trout and white fish ope rstions; (3) In marine operations; (4) in shad and pike-perch operations. A com petitor who passes an examination in any one of the above classes becomes eligible to the class to which the examination relates, and, by passing examinations for all classes, a com petitor may become eligible In all of them. From the register established as the result of this examination several vacancies now exist ing will be filled, namely, one at Cape ' Vi ncent, X. V., salary $720 per annum: one at St. Johnsbury, Vt., saiary $600 per annum; one in the car and messenger service of the Fish Commission, and several others to be stationed at Washington. So far as practicable appointments will be made from those eligibles residing in the vicinity in which the vacancy exists. Persons desiring to compete in this examin ation should apply to the United States Civil Service Commission, Washington, D. C. , for application blanks, full instructions and sam ple questions. THE OARSMEN. They Are In Active Training for the Coming Championship Regatta Next Month. The South End boys are training hard for the championship regatta, which is to take place at El Campo Sunday, Septem ber 19. The club will be represented in every event, and the ambitious oarsmen expect to win first honors in at least five races. Aside from the three barge crews over ten men are training for the out rigger skiff and shell races. Among them , are Jim Foley, Frank Duplissea, Bob Mc- Arthur, Al Fritz, Henry Bode, Dr. Den nis, Charles Cutter, Tom Barry and Frank Burke. On last Sunday morning the fine weather brought out about forty members to the boathouse and the day was spent in swim ming, rowing, bas-punching and other amusements. All the crews in training rowed over the regular three-mile course, under the supervision of their respective coachers, and judging from the interest taken in rowing affairs at the present time and the manner in which all the men are training for the coming regatta it cer tainly looks as though this season will bring many new champions to the front, as well as introduce many new features in rowing circles. The work on the handball court is pro gressing rapidly. For some time many of the members considered the construction of the court an immense josh, and dis couraged the movement in every way; but this did not dishearten Ed Skelley or Captain Will Thomas, who, Sunday after Sunday, spent their time in building the court. Now that it is almost completed they have the hearty co-operation of every member of the club, and if the will ing workmen continue their labors before many moons teams from the club will be heard from in some of the championship handball tournaments. Popular Matt Bteen has recovered from his sprained ankle and is soon expected to be able to take up his oars and measure the distance between the boathouse and Hunters Point. Frank Duplissea and Gus Carson ap peared at the boathouse last Sunday after a vacation of over a month, and will im mediately go into active trainine. Jim Pallas, Georee Bates and Ed Scully are now experts in the skiff and may be heard from in the coming regatta. The South Ends have gained a valuable member in Dr. J. P. McCarthy, whose name was presented at tbe last meeting. i From early morn to twilight the Ariel boathouse presents a scene of the liveliest activity. With the date of the champion ship regatta drawing near the boys have awakened to the importance of thorough training, and are sparing no pains to get themselves in the best possible condition. Among the most willing workers may be mentioned the junior crew. W. T. Howe ha-* had them in hand for the past month and under his coaching they are making great progress. The crew is composed of the following men: Joseph Hannan, stroke; Louis Koppler, afterwaist; P. McCarthy, forwardwaist, and Charles Mc- Auliff, bow. As usual considerable interest is cen tered in who will represent the club in the senior skiff race. George Phelan, the present senior champion, will, of course, enter to retain bis title. At the last re gatta at El Campo Phelan was somewhat handicapped in being in a new boat which he did not have tne time to fully test. Since then, however, he has btcome thoroughly accustomed to it. It is much lighter than any of the other boats and in fair weather with no wind and good water it should develop great speed. William McCausland, probably his most formid able opponent, is at present training for the senior shell race, which he hopes to enter in conjunction with the senior skfff. H. Wutkopt, who was the acknowledged champion some five years back, has re turned to the racing ranks and for soma time past has been out daily in his shell. If ho can get back to his oldtime form he will give a good account of himself. O. Paul, who created a sensation when he won from McCausland in the early part of last year, has not as yet signified his in tention of entering. Frank Wilson, the present junior cham pion, is rapidly rounding into shape, and hopes to give the leaders a close rub. In the junior skiff event one entry from the club is a certainty, a* W. T. Howe, J. R. Bock man and W. J. Prendergast are in training. It was first thought .that the latter two could be prevailed upon to re organize their famous junior crew of last year, but owing to the continued illness of Johnson Hardy, their bow man, they have relinquished the idea, and have paid more attention to skiff rowing. , It is to be regretted that the Ariels will not enter a senior crew. Up to a few days ego everything looked bright, for the same crew that won so handily from the Olympics in their memorable struggle at El Campo last June intended to enter; but /Robert Ellis, the heavy afterwaist, was called out of town and will be absent for nearly a month, and it is hardly prob able that at this day a fitting man can be secured to fill his place. The date for the various tryonts has not as yet been fixed, but it will probably be held on September 12. •The Aiamedas are quietly training over the creek course, with the expectation of entering two crews in the regatta on the 19th. .' : i^sßsSSo Their senior crew, which made such a fine Hi owing at El Campo. is still in exist ence and determine to win. They com pose the following men: John Lewis, bow; .William Hanson, forwardwaist; Al Webb, afterwaist; Fred Ayers, stroke, and Ed Hanson, cockswain. The members- of the.- junior crew have not been decided on as yet, but will prob ably be as follows: Eugene Hndcock, bow; Otto Reihl,\ forwardwaist; Ed Hunter, afterwaist and Al Greenleat', stroke. These men are' all clever oarsmen and should form a powerful crew. At any rate the Alamedas always did have a reputation of making a good showing, and the next race will be no exception. :. > The club also intends to enter men in the senior and junior skiff race. On a week from to-morrow a tryout will beheld to decide who will represent the club. So far Ayers, ;Hadcock, ccott and Stamer have declared their intention to strive for the honor. ..The Aiamedas are still in need of a racing barge, but hope to be able to use one belonging to one of the other clubs on the day of the regatta- ■■'•'."■ ■'*■".■ It is said that Dr. Cecil Dennis intends to enter the junior shell event in the nnxt regatta, using one of the South End shells. He may have as his competitors his clubmates Foley and McArthur, and possibly Foley of the Stocktons. This should make both an interesting and ex citing event, as sUellraces have been very scarce in the last few years. The entry blanks will be issued this morning to the various clubs, and a large number of entries is expected, as the prizes are both beautiful and costly. J. Klunder will represent the Pioneers in the coming regatta, as he defeated Cooney Ochs last Sunday. The club will be represented in the junior barge event by the following crew: H. Wilder, stroke; George Lawson, after waist; George Lawson, forwardwaist; L. J. Smith, bow. The Dolphins have let a contract for steps and board walk to the boathouse from the end of Van Ness avenue and North Point street. The work will be finished Sunday. • ■.-... Captain Kennedy is training faithfully for the junior outrigger skiff race, and will be the only entry in the junior skiff race, unless William Meyer concludes to enter. < '-i •■■. Alex Pape is seriously thinking of form ing a junior crew, instead of entering in the senior skiff race. He has selected a big, strong, sturdy crew, composed of: J. H. Coughlan, stroke; T.J. Hopkins, after waist; Alex Pape, forwardwaist; E. P. Sullivan, bow. The club will have J. H. Coughlan and Will Patch in the senior skiff race. Cough lan has been Keeping himself in fine con dition lor the past three months, and will make seme of the Long Bridge men hustle to beat him. . Patch will make his first appearance in the senior class, and will train hard from the South End boathouse. Since the Dolphins have raised the membership from sixty to seventy-five they have had five applications for mem bership. Among the new members are Joseph Farreil. brother of ex-Captain Far rell, and Will Bush, a well-known athlete. Captain Kennedy is working hard to make the members interested in rowing, and has announced a club cruise to Angel Island Sunday, October 3. The members intend to put up a medal for the junior oarsmen to compete for. It only needs encouragement to bring them out, and when the date for the race is an nounced, the starters will be: Al Shields, Joseph Laib, Charles Roach, Fred Woer ner, P. yon Hadeln and John J. Lynch. Lynch is an old-time oarsman, and if he can be induced to re-enter the ranks he will show a lot of oarsmen what the stern of bis boat looks like. Al Ronard and Cully Mogan are devot ing all their time to yachting, and as soon as the season closes they will be seen on the water around Nortn Beach working for exercise and pleasure. T. R. Keenan has moved his shell to the Pioneer boathouse and will train for the senior shell race. The Dolphins entertained James McE! roy and Slickiiey, the football player, last Sunday. They took them lor a ride to Fort Point and landed at Harbor View lor crabs and clam chowder. E. A. Coney and George Alferitz are go ing to purchase a <loubi<- shell from the San Francisco Yacht Club. Coney made his first appearance in a shell last Sunday. He borrowed Paten's shell, and before lie was through he had mastered the boat.. Coney is thinking of challenging Peter yon Hadeln to a race for a trophy. Charley Roach has-been on a two months' vacation to Harbin Springs. He was heartily welcomed at the ferry last Tuesday by Fred Woerner and a party of firm Dolphins. CRICKET CHIRPS. Some Suggestions Regarding the Acquirement of a Now Ground. I hear that the timeworn tonic, the pro curing of a new and suitable ground for the weekly matches, has been renewed, and, with all others interested in the game, I hope that at the close of the sea son some good wiil come of it. The ob stacles in the way of this muc i-needed acquisition ought not, surely, to be insu perable, even though they are financial. Within an easy ride of town, in the direc tion of San 'Mateo, are acres of level ground, wiiich offer a large selection in the way of picturesque cricket fields. Arrangements for renting a suitable plat on moderate terms could doubtless be made, the transportation of players at re duced rates is doubtless a possible achieve ment, and the necessary improvements could be effected slowly. Australia is all agog in view of the ap proaching Stoddart team which sails from England on the 17th prox. Old man Grace still Keeps up his record as a run-better. In the Gloucestershire and Notts match he made 131 of the 359 which brought about victory. Playing for Warwickshire against Hampshire, Quaife and Bainbridge went in first and were not separated until they had put up 178 and 162 runs respectively. Tiedemann and Hilton of the Pacifies have both left California on business, a matter of deep regret to the remnant of the team. BB^S?
