A WEEK OF SPORT FALL RACING SEASON OPENS Capital City Wheelmen's Big Meet a Week From To-Morrow. The Olympic Wheelmen, Asso ciated Clubs and Vallejo Also in Line. The Bay City's Big Bun To-Morrow. Other Club Events— The Ter rills Still "Winning. With the celebration at Santa Rosa on Admission day the fall and winter season of cycle racing on this coast opened, and while it was an inauspicious beginning, owing to the mismanagement of the pro- DOLPMINS- JUNIOR BARGE CREW. moters, the meets in prospect will not suffer from this regard. There is nothing in the way of racing on hand for to-morrow, although there are several club runs. Commencing with next Sunday week, however, there ii the Capi tal City Wheelmen's meet at Sacramento. Then on October 3 comes the Olympic Club Wheelmen's star event at the Velo drome in this city; on the 10th is the ten-mile handicap of the Associated Clubs, while on the 17th a meet is spoken of to be held at Vallejo. Sacramento will then follow with another "return" meet, and there is a prospect of the Bay City Wheel men taking hold of one to be held at the Velodrome. The return of the professional cracks from tneir extended northern trip will tend to liven things in that class. Ziegler did not come back with the others, and is still nursing his Seattle bruises. He may not ride again this year. The others are in fine shape, and will all appear at the Sacramento meet, and the others to follow. The Capital City Wheelmen of Sacra mento are receiving a big entry list for their meet a week ironi to-morrow. Ru«s, Cook, Kenr.a, Mott and Wing are among the prominent amateurs entered, besides Hirsch, Leit-h, Payen, Peck and other Sacramenio fliers. In the professional class there will be all the prominent riders of the coast save Ziegler who has not yet returned from the north. To-day is tne last day that entries may be mailed to Sacramento to reach there in time before the lists are closed. Riders will be pleased to learn that the banking of the track coming into the homestretch will be raised. This was the one weak point in the track, and it should now prove to be the fastest oval in the State. The Sacramento club has on its pro gramme two of the greatest events ever set before the followers of the sport. They are the one-mile Pacific Coast champion ship, to b-» competed in by both profes sionals and amateurs, and tne one-isile Associated Club*.' handicap, the latter event for a pur.-*-* of $200, open to profes sionals only. These, with the other events scheduled, should present a most interesting day's racing. The Acme Club Wneelmen will have a run o Pleasanton to-morrow, leaving the c übhouse at 7:45 a. M. Many are the riders who are in training j now for the annual ten-mile handicap of the association from Fruitvale to Hay- 1 wards on October 10. This race always > attracts a big field. The Olympic trophy j i- at stake in it, too, which lends added interest to the clubs, panicul.-.riy to the Acmes Imperials and Santa Rosas, who < already have mortgages on this valuable I cun. \\'YYY Entries are limited to members of the association and blanks and other infor mation may be had of Chairman C. A. Adams of the road racing board, at room 137, Phelan building. The Velodrome will be opened next week for training privileges for those who propose competing at the Olympic Club Wheelmen's big meet on that track on October 3. Tickets for this privilege may be had by addressing Captain hadenfeldt at the club, or George H. Stratton, 501 Montgomery street. The otherclubs here are lending the Olympics their hearty support and the meet will be a big cycling event. Box parties will be quite the proper thing, and already two big blocks of seats Lava been spoken for by the Bay Cilys and California.*}. Late advices have been received from the Terrill brothers in France, as follows: August 29 was the first day we raced in Paris. Ben was in 'with Nossam and had him beaten, hut was beaten out by a lew inches by Buroite, whom he pulled through. I was in with Morin, who is considered the fastest man here, as he has won the Grand ¥ ixde Paris for thro* years. 1 beat him by about ti mc es, but ho judges gave Morin the decision. The public said I had won, and so did Morin. However, although I did n i get the decision it h s done me a great deil of good, as they consider anybody who rides close to Morin very good. American riders are all riding gears much too low. in America 1 had a great deal of trouble keeping my m scles of. on account of r din* a gear entirely too small. We are rid ing 92-inch tears, and B bis going to change to * higher one. We expect to change wheeiS, too, shortly. Harry Terrill recommends a gear as h : ghas96for ordinary track-racing. _ He says that a good rider, while finding him self handicapped at first and probably not showing his former speed in races, will soon become accustomed to it and be faster tban ever. Furthermore, he will never grow stale with the high gear, being always in form, as his muscles are more thoroughly and evenly exer cised. In speaking of the Terrills, Bearings' Paris correspondent has this to say : Bob and Harry Terrill are doing the provinces and are meeting with a f»:ir amount of success. It is true their opponents are not aiwitys of the same class as Morin and Jacquelin, but it gives them a chance to win a few events. They both raced last Sunday at Amiens. Bob won the Grand Prix d'Amiens, aeicating Deschamps. who is a ridsr of no mean order, and Harry scored i_ the inter national, lowering the colors of Mathieu and Gen teL The Bay City Wheelmen have a star at traction on the cards for to-morrow in the shape of a club run 10 Mission San J se. where they will be the guests of their fel low-members, Messrs. Snlazar and Galle cos, who are said to possess fabulous quantities of all the good tilings the earth provides, and to have them stored there. The Encinal Wheelmen, formerly the Alameda Cyclers, will hold a five-mile handicap road race Sunday, the L'Gth. Herbert Clark will not ride, however, so the race loses much of its interest. M. G. Curtis of tne Encinals has postponed his attempt on the Fruitvale-San Jose record until the latter part of October. To-morrow the members of the Ariel Road Club will journey to Palo Alto. They will assembl-* at Ninth and Market streets at 8 a. m. The committee appointed by Pres ; dent Swain of the Associated Clubs to arrange for a theater party, consisting of Messrs. Hancock.Winsiow. Sachs, Rees and bpald ing, has decided to report favorably on a benefit at the Tivoli, to be held the latter part of Octobor. The San Francisco Road Club's baseball team, 'consisting of Messrs. Robison, Lewis, Cray ton, Barnett, Hoar, Feder, I O'Malley, Goodwin and Frost, will play the Petalunms at their grounds to-mor- I row. Captain J. S. Lewis has called a run to t«Ke the Ba. m. Tiburon boat. The j roads are in very fair condition. Ex-Captain Jerry Barrows of the Impe- I rial Cycling Club has left for Tucson, Ariz., wnere he will take charge of the bi | cycle department of a large store. F. C. i iJehrraan and E. J.

Sportsmen are looking anxiously for ward to the opening day of the season when quail and duck may be lawfully bagced. The day of opening will fall on Friday, Oc ober 1, but as a large percentage of lo cal bill-.rampers and mud-splashers can ! not leave their places of business until j the day alter the inaugural day of the j season, those who are so fixed financially j and otherwise as to be able to interview wild game on the day of general slaugh ter may look forward to some good sport, provided, of course, the weati.er will not be uo warm to engage in tramping over held or marsh. Unfortunately the game law has been shamefully violated in many of the coun i ties not far distant from this city, and it i is well known to many local sportsmen that for some weeks past wild ducks and ! quail have been shipped to this ciiy in I butter boxes and disposed of at good prices ] to social clubs and to the proprietors of j eating-houses. SOUTH ENDS- SENIOR. BARGE CREW. Some arrests have been made by the game warden, but in almosteverv instance the Police Courts allowed the offenders to go scot free without even a reprimand, it can be safely said, however, that the officials who failed to recognize the law so far as game is concerned will not be recog nized favorably by the sportsmen at a season of the year when votei are in de mand. The deer-shooting season in Marin County closed on the 15th inst.— last Wednesday — and the Game Warden who resides in San Rafael will keep a close eye out for law-breakers. It is learned that quail are being shipped from some parts of Main County to this city in butter-boxes, but that is nothing new. However, the Fish and Game Com missioners may after all give some atten tion to this illegal shipment of game in butter-boxes to this city. According to the appropriation the Fish Commission has at its disposal "for the restoration and preservation of game," $5000. PSSBQ , Some of the money may be expended in the employment of deputies who can now find a good field for their tervices in this city as game will arrive daily until October L" Frank Cumming, John Siebe, Frank La Coste, Billy Brown, G. Domergue and John Bergez enjoyed one of the grandestdeer hunting trips .of the season a few days ago. The sportsmen wound up the season for deer bunting on the Tamalpias pre serve and the cracking of rifles was some thing startling as twenty-t deer were "jumped" by the dogs and r of that num ber only three fell to the rifles of La Coste, Brown and Bergez. Cumming and Siebe ran out of ammu nition early in tbe day and had to content themselves in watching their more fortu nate companions bowl over the big game. Domergue says ne missed a deer as large as a mule, and be is still wondering how he failed to draw blood. The inanimate-target shooters will en joy great sport at Monterey during the tournament which will commence to-day and finish, to-morrow. THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER IS, 1897. SOME LATEST GRIDIRON NEWS Wanderiug Olympics From the Disrupted Team Join Reliance, Schedule of Games Readjusted Since Army and Navy's Collapse. Coach Brooke and His System of Training— Progress at Berke ley. The disruption of the Army and Navy football team, first chronicled in The Call, has been the most important piece of gridiron news this week. The immediate result of the break-up is I OLYMPIC INTERMEDIATE CREW. that Reliance has already secured from the disbanded eleven "Pete" Smith, Sexton and ''Tommy" Code. And these men hope soon to be joined by Abe Lewis and Percy Morse. Fortunately, the adopted schedule of i the season's games among the big four ; teams will not be greatly affected by the withdrawal of one of the clubs. Reliance will play the matches that the Army and Navy team was to have bad with the two universities. The proposed Army and Navy match with Reliance on November 20 will be the only date canceled. Following will be the schedule of games r.t the new grounds, corner of Eighth and j Harrison streets. AU but the last will be played on Saturday: October 2— California-Reliance. October 9— Stanford-Reliance. October 16— California-Reliance. October 23-*-Bt»n ord-Reliauce. October 30— California and Stanford Fresh men. November 6— California-Reliance, November 13— --tanford-Reliance. November Thanksgiving Varsity match. It is unlikely that another Army and Navy team will be organized, as it would have to be composed of enlisted men, there being no officers available; and privates would not be in the playing class with the three big teems. The probable formation of the Reliance team will be this: Center, Burnett or Wells; guards, Hobbs and "Pete" Smith; tackles, Sexton and Bert Oliver; ends, "Eddie" Sherman and Lmyon, with pos sibly Abe Lewis; Quarter, ■ "Tommy" Code or Piatt; halfbacks, Captain Frick and Carter, with: Percy Morse, perhaps; fullback, A. Arlett or Felton Taylor. These are only the most promising candi dates. In" addition to its match games with California Reliance will play practice games nearly every Wednesday afternoon on the Berkeley .campus, Captain Frlck having on last Thursday made provisional arrangements to that effect with Man ager Brown at Berkeley. Reliance will have a chance to secure far more good football material than it can possibly use. It is to be regretted that so many good players, because of no bona-fide amatenr club to shelter them at home, should become "wandering min strels" and "crushed tragedians," to apply two recently celebrated court phrases. If Butte succeeds in being reinstated in amateur standing then its prospective came with Reliance • will be played in Montana. ' V Recent favorable developments at Berkeley have done much to dispel the fear at Palo Alto that Stanford men, mindful of their great victory of last Thanksgiving and of the return of so many veteran players, would be over confident and inclined to neglect their training. At Palo Alto the past week it has been so warm and the new grounds in such a wretched condition, owing to lack of water and proper top dressing, that the players have been unable to i_et much profitable practice. -All of them are stiff and sore from their preliminary work. Coach Brooke not only takes well with the Stanford students, but he also wears well. He is in no sense of the phrase "a grand stand man," but goes quietly about his work, giving his instructions wherever they seem most needed. The preliminary,* work assigned by Brooke differs from that of tbe old Yale coaches. There is no gymnasium exer cise, no long, exhausting runs to develop wind, but, instead, all the work is done in the field. First, he has every one punting and catching. Then large circles are formed, and the ball is rolled about and dropped upon by each man in succession. Later, players are divided into squads. Certain of the backs usually; get in one end of the field, a center passes the ball to a fullback, who punts to the backs/and the various squads charge down the field in relays. Their business is to tackle and down the man running with the ball. 1 Such practice as this affords very little opportunity to judge of the merits of the various players, yet already the work of Ray Smith "'99, woo took Jeffs' place at end during the last half of the. last Thanksgiving game, is attracting some attention. Perhaps it is because he has had better opportunities that his worK is noticeable. Of the freshmen, Wilson, a halfback from Los Angeles, is showing up very well. He has been appointed temporary captain of the freshman team. Next Saturday the freshmen will -lay Belmont School. This game will afford the first opportunity of estimating the strength of ti.e new men. It is very probable that Wyckoff will not represent Stanford in any of this sea son's football games. Although a com paratively light man, weighing about 150 pounds, he is probably the best and most reliable fullback on the coast, but univer sity work and the fact that he is married will probably keep bim out of gridiron contests. It is an open race for the honor of doing Stanford's punting during the season of '97. "Chet" Murphy has lost none of his skill as a kicker, but there are two, or per haps tiireo other men, who are possible candidates. Forrest Fisher, the bucking halfback, is one of them. As yet be can not handle punts well, but he has an en couraging way of driving them down the field after once landing his instep against the ball. rgfpSf Beckett, the pitcher and a tackle on lust year's freshman team, is, though a trifle slow, punting fairly good distances. The other man is Ray Smith. Last year he was never known to Kick a ball, but he is doing so now. Daley, a halfback on last year's fresh man team, and Garth Parker, sub-half- back last year, are the two dark horses for varsity honors. Parker is a strong defensive player and a shifty dodging runner with the ball. Coach . Clemans '93 was very much pleased with his work last year. Dailey is a rushing, headlong player who fears nothing and is always deter mined to advance the ball at any cost. At the University of California work on the football field has begun in earnest. Every afternoon the men are given practice in catching, in running, in tackling and in falling on the ball. Sheehy, the big ex-Olympic guard, who has just entered at Berkeley, was out for the first ti^ne Wednesday with the other candidates. Great things are expected from him and from Gurbjrson, the big freshman, who, in spite of previous lack of football experience, is rapidly getting into form. V V Football Manager Brown of Berkeley announced yesterday afternoon that in all probability Frank Simpson, the tackle on last year's football team, will play again this season. Simpson is attending the Toland Medical College. At the begin ning of the terra it was not expected that his work would permit him to try for football honors. Changes are being made daily and the men are being tried at different positions. Percy Kail, who played halfback on last year's eleven, is being tried at end and •Jimmy Hopper behind the line. It is too early to forecast the probable makeup of the California team. By the end of another week, however, the foot ball material will have been somewhat sorted. The Berkeley freshmen will play a number of games with minor elevens be fore they go against Stanford on October 30. Among the teams they will play are San Mateo School, Belmont School and Santa Clara College. BASEBALL. The National Came Will Be Played on Many Diamonds To- Morrow. I Fresno's representatives will meet Bak ersfield's champions at Central Park to day. Phil Knell, one of the old Califor nia League pitchers, will be in the box for Bakersfield, and his presence alone shonld prove an attraction.

' ' ~ DRAW FIGHTS NOT POPULAR Sporting Men Do Not Ap prove of the Eastern System. They Want a Winner to Be Named in All Twenty- Round Contests. Pony Moore Says That a Babe Can Whip Jackson in His Present Condition, If the sporting clubs of this city are de sirous of upholding boxing contests and cater to the wants of the people who pa tronize the game of fisticuffs they must , sit down hard ' upon what are termed "draw" fights. There i* no occasion for a "draw decision in a contest of twenty rounds, and any good referee who has the courage to announce his opinion regard less of the fact that it may ba hissed by those who .gambled on the. defeated man will most certainly have the support and well wishes of all thorough sportsmen. A referee of a boxing contest cannot possibly please all those who witness a fight by deciding in favor of any one man unless the contest ends in a knockout, and even then some people will be heard to remark that "If Mr. Referee had done his duty and separated the combatants when they were clinched, so and so would have won beyond a shadow of doubt." The referea of a prize-fight has no very pleasant position, and as stated before his decisions are invariably questioned by some people, who are, as a rule, natural born kickers. Instead of chiding a referee for having decided in favor of the man whom he be lieved to bj honestly entitled to a de cision, the managers of boxing clubs should most assuredly encourage and up hold him, regardless of what the squeal ers who may have lost a dollar or so on the contest believe or think. It must not be forgotten by the sport lovers of this city that in the Eastern cities the death of boxing was attributed to too many "draw" fights. The sports became disgusted with draw, draw, draw, and they finally ceased to patronize the game in consequence. The story of how Eastern boxing was killed reads as follows: Mr. Kill-me-quick and Mr. Sure-shot, noted pugilists who were a bit anxious about their records, could not agree on the question of weight possibly half a pound or so — and rather than disappoint SOUTH ENDS- JUNIOR 6ARGE CREW. the people they finally agreed to a propo sition made by the manager of whatever club tuey were to do battle in, and that was to box a draw and divide so much percentage of the receipts after the man ager bad his whack. This thing went along all right for a tim*, out the people who paid the piper finally became disgusted and remained away from the prearranged scrapping matches. Of course that ended every thing or no money, no fights. It looks very much as if the same old game is to be introduced here, and now the question is, Will the people stand it? San Francisco is said to be full of fish, commonly called suckers; or it is a jay town, according to some Thespians. How ever that may be, there is a time and place for all things, and the managers of boxing clubs will do well to put on their thinking caps, as the local sports who patronize fisticuffs are getting pretty well disgusted witb draw fights and. the divide of the purse or percentage between the scrap pers. * A referee who understands anything about boxing can easily determine which of two men who contest twenty rounds is entitled to a victory; and although the award may be beyond question the referee must always expect a hiss from the small losers of a professional boxing contest. • ; Sam Fitzpatrick. the noted |trainer and handier of pugilists, who picked up "Kid" Lavigne from among the salt barrels of Michigan and who helped him to victory on many occasions, has a new candidate to public favor in the light-weight class. Sam has taken Jack Daly of Wilmington, Del., in char.*e. Daly is of the Fnzsim mons construction: long of reach, tall and rangey, and can easily make the light weight limit. It i*. said that under the care of Sam Daly will soon attain cham pionship form. • Peter Jackson unexpectedly arrived from the- land of roast beef and plum pudding a few days ago, and according to the dispatches be will soon be journeying to bis old favorite haunts In San Fran cisco. Eastern reports state that Peter is looking like his former self and has one or two good fights left within him yet. It is to be hoped the reports are true, aa Jack- I son has innumerable well-wishers in this city who would co a long distance- to see a return match— which, by the way is a long time coming— between Peter and the ex-champion, Jim Corbett. t Jackson has for years hanfcered after a second meeting with the now successful baseball referee, who is said to be making money umpiring the national came in the East while Champion Fitzsimmons is trying to find out where he is at. "Pony" Moore has a poor opinion of Jackson. In a recent interview he said: "Peter will never fight again. He is a shadow of his former self. I think a babe could whip him in his present state. . The fights arranged* for the near future are Solly Smith and George Dixon before the Knickerbocker Club, and George Wol cott and "Kid" Lavigne before the Occi dental Club. The National Club may match George Green and Owen Zeigier. The monthly amateur exhibition of the Excelsior Athletic club takes place on Tuesday evening, the. 28th inst., at the ciubrooms. Eighth and Folsom streets. The event oi tne evening will be a four round go between Jimmie McGrath, a protege of Young Mitchell, and Charles Dixon of the San Francisco Athletic Club. A decision will be rendered. COURSING. New Arrivals From Eastern Ken- nels Will Bs Tried Out To-Day. The feature of this week's coursing is another two day stake wide open.

The regatta will be . for yachts under twenty feet racing length, and will be open to all recognized yacht clubs on the bay. The idea of the race is to have the boats anchored in line at the start and at a spe cified time a preparatory gun will be fired, and ten minutes later the starting signal will be given. The yachts are then sup posed to slip their cables, hoist sails and sail over the course and at the finish again anchor. It is thought the race will be ■ailed over the El Campo course, as it proved a splendid one for small boats. - The Corinthians have also appointed a committee of seven to prepare a suitable entertainment for their closing day on Octolerl6.
