look out for that position, and did so
Fl>!endidly, while Pyne. the new acquisi
tion, was stationed at first base. His
astonishing and. successful leap into the
air after a wild throw, completing the
performance by retiring the runner,
brought forth a long and sincere cheer.
It was a marvelous catch, and will in
all probability be the star play of the
Hiason. Mr. Lange also made a great
catch, which under ordinary circum
stances would have been considered
superb. Mr. Pyne, however, carried off
the honors in that regard, and justly too.

San Jose Had No Trouble in
Winning From the Fresno
FRESNO, July 3.— The ball game to-day
between Fresno and San Jose resulted in
easy victory for the latter, the -score be
ing 11 to 2. The game was not character
ized by any brilliant playing by either
side, the principal feature being the man
ner in which the visitors found Tawney,
who pitched for Fresno. He was almost
hammered out of the box by the sturdy
stickers from Garden City. Eighteen hits
were made off his delivery. The homo
team placed Arick, who occupied the box
f'>r San Jose, safely seven times, but the
hits were too scattered to be effective.
In the first Inning Eagan for San Jose
lined out a three-bagger, scoring three
men. The official score of the game is as

The San Franciscos Easy Game
for the Fine Playing of the
Santa Cruz Team.
SANTA CRUZ, July 3.— Balse's fine
pitching, coupled with the perfect sup
port he received, was too much for the
San Franciscos to digest to-day. The vis
itors had a rather patched-up team and
played with little life. Krug started in
to pitch, but owing to his wildness gave
way to Shea, who held the locals down
quite well. The score was:

The Little Racing Craft Rounded the Blossom Rock Buoy in
Bunch and Started an Exciting Run fop Home.
There was ah exciting Whitehall boat race in the lower bay yesterday afternoon. The regatta was a part of the
Fourth of July celebration and the shore of the bay was lined with spectators, while the racing boats were followed
by a fleet of tugs and launches. The entries were: Robert J. Tobin, Maurice Behan captain; Stewart Menzies, D.
Crowley Sr. captain; Ella, John Engels captain; Golden Shore. James Sinnott captain; General Shatter, Minor Mul
laney captain; Colonel Dan Burns, William Clarke captain; Arthur McCracken, Thomas Crowley captain; Chief Lees,
Thomas Lyons captain; H. T. Emery, M. J. Fitzgerald captain.
The course was as follows: Starting from Powell-street wharf to and around Blossom Rock buoy, leaving It on
the port side: thence to and around a stakeboat anchored 300 yards west of Powell-street wharf, leaving tire same on
the starboard hand; thence to and around a stakeboat anchored off Fort Point wharf, leaving the same on
port hand; thence to Powell-street wharf, finishing across a line drawn between the stakeboat and Powell-street
Thomas Lyons' Chief Lees was the first to round Blossom Rock buoy, soon after rounding which the mast of
William Clarke's Colonel Dan Burns became unstepped, causing some delay to that boat. After rounding the stake
boat to the west of Powell-street wharf it was a hard beat to windward against a stiff westerly breeze out to the
Fort Point stakeboat. Maurice Behan's Robert J. Tobln and Thomas Crowley's Arthur McCracken raced nip and
tuck till the stakeboat was reached. The Arthur McCracken neatly rounded it, and set her spinnaker for the run
home; the Robert J. Tobin was not up quite enough to windward and fouled the buoy. By the time she got clear the
Arthur McCracken had obtained a lead that rendered it impossible to catch her. But, though Thomas Crowley'a boat
ran home an easy winner, she neglected to cross the finishing line between Powell-street wharf and the stakeboat,
crossing to the north of the stakeboat, and was disqualified. This seemed to leave the first prize to Maurice Behan's
boat, but as she fouled the Fort Point stakeboat first money may after all be awarded to James Sinnott's Golden
Shore, which came in a good third. The committee will confer with the judge at the stakeboat before deciding the
awards. It seems, however, certain that Thomas Crowley must have misunderstood the course, for he had so long a
lead that he might easily have put about, beaten out to windward for some distance and run home between the
wharf and the stakeboat a winner.
A. Beyer's Captain Staples was Judges' tender. There wan a brisk but steady breeze, and enough sea to test the
weatherly qualities of the little boats, which were well handled and presented a pretty picture as they ran before the
wind with mainsheets free and spinnakers set.

Cornelius Cronin May Have Died
From Heart Trouble or a
Broken Neck.
Cornelius Cronin died at his home at
705 Tehama street last evening under cir
cumstances which leave a doubt as to
wheiher death was due to natural causes
or a fall resulting in his neck being
Cronin had lunch with his family late
in the afternoon, and, after rising from
the table, went to the back porch, where
he stood for a few moments. A noise of
something falling brought his wife to the
OnuT and she found her husband lying on
the ground in .in unconscious condition.
Examination proved that he was dead,
and the Coroner's office was notified. At
the earnest request of Mrs. Cronin the
body was not taken to the Morgue, but
to an undertaking establishment, where
an autopsy will be held.
Deputy Coroner Haliett believes that
Cronin was attacked with heart failure,
which caused him to fall down the steps,
but Mr. Haliett says there is a chance
that he may have slipped and in falling
broke his neck.
Fewer Boats Than Usual Attend the
Interclub Cruise.
The third annual cruise of the Pacific
Inter-club Yacht Association was held on
July 2 and 3. Owing to the fact that the
Corinthians had a cruise to Martinez in
thoir programme for the 2d, there were
by no mean? so many yachts at anchor
at Vallejo as last year. The breeze on the
night of the 2d from Sausalito and Tib
urun up to Red Rock was somewhat
fHiky, but from that point on was steady.
The following yachts left Sausalito on
Saturday evening: Commodore Dr. T. L.
Hill's sloop CygnUß, having on board Dr.
and Mrs. T. L. Hill. Mrs. C. B. Hill.
Messrs. E. C. Bartl^tt, C. Rieveley and
Arthur Inkersley; Vice Commodore G. T.
S. White's sloop Will o' the Wisp. Arthur
D. Naylor's sloop Twilight, A. Suther
land's sloop Catherine and E. New-hall's
schooner Virginia. Yesterday morning, in
addition to most of those, there lay at
anchor at Vallelo Fred King's sloop Lois,
the yawl Frolic. R. R. 1 Hommedieu's
s!<">p Phoenicia and the Encinal yacht
Fawn. It was expected that several Cali
fornia yachts would join the rendezvous
and that the number would be largely in
creased by the addition of the Corinthian
fleet on its return from Montezuma

The English Dog Lands
Another Stake.
Union Park Furnishes Some Bare
Sport — Ingleside Crowded With
Followers of the Pastime,
The Record.
For Freedom, the speedy importation
from England, still upholds the reputa
tion he has earned since his advent to
this coast. Yesterday at Union Park he
went past his rivals as if they were stand
ing still and won the open staJte in his
usual style. Whenever J. H. Rossiter, the
fortunate possessor of the great dog, en
ters him for a stake it seems a foregone
conclusion that he will carry it off, and
the talent is chary about laying their
shekels on any other candidate. At times
the shortenders are fascinated by the odds
of 20 to 1, as was offered yesterday, and
bet in the hope of seeing the invincible
dog meet his Waterloo. It is vain hope,
however, as For Freedom once looseiu i a
from the slips, bounds after the prey with
lightning syeed, leaving his rival far in
the rear. This was the rule yesterday.
Such speedy performers as Mira Monte
and Minneapolis wero made to look like
has bceiis. Although the Eastern produc
tion made a fair showing against the
wonder in the final after the hist turn,
For Freedom's speed asserted itself and
he earned the flag. His owner was offered
$UuOO for him by a Mr. Edmondson, a lover
of the sport, but Mr. Rossiler refused tho
tempting offer, saying that the dog was
not for sale.
Nothing of a sensational nature was
sprung yesterday. The talent took a few
falls during the running, but retrieved
themselves on tho winnings of the favor
ites. The Gossoon, lilacktun, Camilla ana
Terrona contributed to tho joy of the
shortenders by landing flags. The Gos
soon defeated the 2>/2 to 1 lavorite Doug
las; Blackton won fron .Lady Blanche
at 3 to 1, and Camilla keeled over the
slight favorite, Tea Rose. The defeat of
False Flatterer by Terrona, at 4 to 1, was
the saddest blow of all. The talent was
ho confident that the former would win
that they banked heavily on her, and
much disappointment was displayed when
Terrona was declared the winner.
Hot Stuff' 3 second day's appearance was
signalized by his defeating Glenstone anc?
Terrona. Vanity Fair and the former ran
a no course, after which the latest as
pirant for honors was defeated in a close
Old Skyball displayed grit and staying
powers by landing a tricky hare after a
course similar to that which laid Black

A great many hard losers railed at
Judge Bull for not deciding in favor ol
their choice, Rosette, in her course with
Firm Friend. The decision, in the minds
of non-bettor?, was a fair one. as Flrn.
Friend did the most work at the finish.
The course was a good one and was keen
ly watched.
Firm Friend's hnrd courses in the byes
played havoc with him. and when he ap

easy rival.

Dr. J. A. B. Wilson Addresses Some
Timely Remarks to Members
of the Boys' Brig-ade.
Dr. John A. B. Wilson, pastor of the
Howard-Street Methodist Church, deliv
ered a stirring- sermon on "Patriotism"
before a large and attentive congregation
last evening composed in part of the
young people who compose the Boys'
Brigade. He based his remarks on Prov
erbs, xiv:34: "Righteousness exalteth a
nation, but sin is a reproach to any peo
ple." In part he said:
"The implication is that the exaltation
of a nation is desirable, but that
moral evil prevents while righteousness
promotes it. Love means the desire and
effort to uplift the object loved. War and
courage in battle is one way but by no
m< iin.s the only way of promoting the in
terests of our country."
The speaker then called attention to
Dt-wey and Hobson as being believers in
Christ and of their bravery in times of
peril. He outlined Hobson's character and
pointed him out to his young listeners as
the ideal soldier and Christian. In clos
ing he said:
"Young men, do not force the opportun
ity of doing great things. Get ready for
the move by discipline and devotion to
the unromantic duties of your station,
and if the hour never comes you will
have increased the average of national
righteousness by the quality of your own
personality, and If the hour comes It will
find you ready."

He Robbed a Woman of-
Her Purse. .:
John Comerford Buns a Great -vace, : .
but Succeeds in Landing in the
Tanks — A Desperate
While visiting Sutro Heights yesterday
afternoon Mrs. Dunn of 3793 Seventeenth
street had her pocket picked of a pursa
containing $29 80. Suspecting a young ■•.
man who stood near her, she informed
Police Officer George Douglass, who pro- '
ceeded to arrest the thief. '•
The latter, evidently realizing that Mrs.-.
Dunn had suspected him, took to his ■
heels, followed by the officer. During the
chase he threw away the purse, which
was picked up by a citizen. After a run'
of several blocks Douglass succeeded in •
overhauling the thief. At the City Prison'
he gave hiß name as John Comerford and
was charged with grand larceny. His
companion, who gave his name as Charles
Coulter, was also arrested by Detectives
Egan and Gibson and charged with -va
grancy. "'■ "
Saturday night Gibson and Egan de
tected Comerford in the act of picking a
woman's pocket on Market street. They
started to arrest him, when he broke
away from them and ducked down Mar
ket street, pursued by the detectives. In
his flight he knocked down several
women. A soldier, hearing the cry of
"Stop thief!" attempted to stop him. but
In doing so tripped up Detective Gibson,
who was almost within arm's reach of
the thief. After regaining his feet Gib
son continued the pursuit, finally compel
ling Comerford to seek refuge In a build
ing on Market and Stockton streets. Gib^
son followed him. and as he was about to
place him under arrest Comerford jumped
through an open window to the ground
below, a distance of tweny-flve feet. For
tunately for him he was not injured.
Gibson immediately ran from the build
ing, expecting to see the pickpocket lying
in the street a fit subject for the hospital
doctors, as he expressed it. To his sur
prise, however, Comerford was not to be
found. While the detective was leaving
the building, as it was afterward learned,
the bold thief, after picking up his hat,
which he had dropped, ran along Stockten
street and made good his escape.

Body Found in a Cave.
Charles Hopps, George Rnde and James
Crosbie found the body of an unknown
man in a cave just south of the Cliff

was entirely naked, save a shoe on one foot
and a leather belt about the wal3t. The
crew from the life-saving station took it
from the cave before the tide could rise
and carry it out to sea. and it was after- ■
ward removed to the Mnrsrue, where' it
now lies awaiting identification.
