Defeated Colonel Wheeler
for the McLaughlin
Selling Stake.
Clayton's Stirrups Broke and
Caspar Easily Downed
Gray's Poor Ride Astride Buck Masste
Gavo the Owners' Handicap
to May W.
The inclemency of the weather did
not keep people away from the races
yesterday. The card was a gilt-edged
one. and almost as many turf patrons
Journeyed over the bay to Oakland
track as have been seen there under |
more propitious circumstances. An
owners' handicap and two stake events j
were the special attractions. Dr. Row
ell's more than useful chestnut horse.
Satsuma, took the McLaughlin selling
stake in very fast time, and Caspar, the j
fast son of St. Andrew, defeated Kubi- ;
con for the Reliance Club Handicap.;
A broken stirrup possibly contributed I
to the latter's downfall. The owners' j
handicap wont to the fast Montana
mare. May W, with the Eastern crack, j
Buck Massie. at her heels. Three fa- !
vorites reached the wire in front.
Of the six starters for the McLaugh
lin selling stake, at one mile and a six
teenth, Colonel Wheeler, with 104
pounds, and Thorpe in the saddle, was
considered the most eligible, and was
a consistent 3-to-2 choice throughout j
the betting. Just before post time
there was a stiff play on Satsuma,
against which throes were obtainable.
Garland Barr. King William. Tom
Cromwell and Buckwa were considered
outclassed in the going. Oarland Barr j
undoubtedly worked the defeat of the
favorite. Chasing out in front with
him he had the Colonel a trit'.e groggy
something over a furlong from the
wire. Jones then made his ride with
Satsuma, and Conley. astride Garland
Barr, very condescendingly let him r-x
tricate himself from the pocket he was'
in. and. although Thorpe made a dcs- j
perate effort to hold the lead, was beat
en somewhat handily by a npck. in the j
f.ipt time of 1:48%. The value of the:
stake to th>- winner was 1950.
It was a very slim fiVM that went to :
the post in the Reliance Club Handi- i
cap. over seven furlongs, worth $700 to
the first horse. Rubicon was asked to j
pick up 1-4 pounds, and everybody was ,
congratulating Tommy Griffin on hit- j
ting up with such soft company. The
big chestnut horse, with Lonny Clay
ton in the saddle, was backed down 6 to !
R to 4 to r>. Caspar and Colonel Dan,
the Burrs <ft Waterhouse pair, receded !
in the hettinpr from 3 to 5 to evens. It
was a two-horse race to the head of the
stretch, Caspar and Rubicon running;
head and head. Turning the her.d for j
home, Rubicon made a very wide turn, j
loßir.s: several lentrths, and, hugging the
rail, Caspar won as he pleased. Col. |
Dan even came along, beating the fa
vorite for the place.
The cause of the first choice's miser
able ending was quickly made appar- !
ent. At the h<=>ad of the stretch nnc of
Clayton's stirrups hroke. and as h<> was
pulling up the other one served him
J. X. Murphy's Buck Massie opened
an 8 to 5 favorite for the owners' hand
icap with his 88 pounds up. but the
supply was more than adequate to the
demand and 11 to 5 was procurable
later on. Th« big play was mad» on
May W, forcing her odds down from
threes to 9 to n. The Montana mare
took a commanding load at the first
turn and though Buck was coming fast
at the end, ho was beaten a scant
length. Double Quick ran w«=ll to the
etreteh, where he tired badly.
The 2 to 1 favorite, Colonial Dame. In i
the opening five and a half furlong ;
scramble was pounds the best of the
eleven starters, and though O'Connor
could not assist her much, she came on i
In the stretch and led out El Morn and |
Elldad at the wire. The former made '
most of the running and appears to |
fancy the heavy going. La Maroma '

Professor Brown Speaks
of Its History and
The First of a Series of Studies
in Secondary Educa
Will Be the Field of a Great Ed
ucational Reorgani
BERKELEY, Jan. 15.— Professor El
mer E. Brown of the department of
pedagogy of the State University be
gan to-day a series of "Studies in Sec
ondary Education," which will be given
on Saturday mornings during the com
ing term. Two regular recitation pe
riods, from 10:20 to 11:15, and from 11:15
to 12:10 will be devoted to the course.
Professor Brown proposes to devote the i
first hour to the history of secondary j
education and the closing hour to the '
study of practical problems. In his
opening remarks this morning Profes- j
Bor Brown Baid:
B ndary education occupies a some
what critical position in education in:
■ il. The difficulties that are se.-:i
in California are difficulties which have \
appeared before and elsewhere, but we
have in California ;i comparatively
■ educational system— a respon
body of teachers and a public
which la perfectly willing to give edu
nal experiments a fair trial.
re are narrow views on secondary
education and there are broad views—
there are narrow views which nrn
broad and there are broad views which
are superficial, a reorganisation is
coming in secondary education, and in
this reorganisation the university must
take a prominent part.
When we have in California a truly
ted form of secondary education
we will have, l think, a perfected form
ication In general, bo closely does
education come in contact
with primary education "ii th»- one hand
and university education <>n the other.
A study of the Bubjeci of secondary
ition should Include, broadly, two
ts— a history iry educa
tion in America and a Study of hi^h
school curricula ami discussion of
the more important questions sup.
od. As a basis of study of the latter
subject the famous "Report of the Com
mittee of Ten." mad- in 1893, will be

hist< ry of secondary education
divides naturally Into three j.. riods:
The "grammar sch ;. h.-gin
ning with the early days of colonisation
and earning down to the R I nary
War; the academy period, lasting from
the tlm«' of the Revolution down to
about 1840; in this period come the plo
reformers, Horace

id lastly the high school

questions of secondary education. Pro
fessor Brown dwelt ui>r.:i the various
views taken of the «ulijeot of educa
tion. "The modern educational or ped
apoeical view," he said, "is comins to
he. In addition to a psychological view,
a social view as weU. It adapts edu

the various branches of study, but to
the needs of the student of many and

The Chinese New Year a Day
Fixed by an Unerring
Time Keeper.
According to the Chinese calendar,
which is regulated by the moon, there
is no such thing as a difference of opin
ion by the Mongolians regarding the
date of the first of the year, save and
except what is now thrown in by the
newly appointed Consul who has taken
it upon himself to change the date. At
this interference with time and tide the
wis- ones in Chinatown simply laugh.
They point to the fact that the new
moon, which governs their months,
comes on the 21st of this month, and
nothing that the Consul or any other
man may say or do can change that
event. Consequently the New Year
will be celebrated on that day. By
the Chinese way of computing time
they have, as we have, sixty-two moons
every five years. This gives them an
extra month every three years and a
little over which they divide to suit
their new years, always making it a
point to have the year commence on
the birth of the moon. This year the
birth of the twelfth moon is down on
the calendar for the 21st, and that set
tles It. Next year, however, will be
a long one with them and their n> -w
year will run into the middle of Feb
The Chinese months vary from
twenty-nine to thirty days, hut never
more or less.
They laugh at the Consul's way of
reckoning dates, and Pimply say that
If he be correct th<- Chinese New Year
In China commences by right on the
2fHh. Inasmuch as the Eastern time is
ahead of the San Francisco time by at
least one day. Consequently Friday.
