The gymnasium of the Olympic Club
was crowded to its utmost capacity last
night. The occasion was ladies' night
The programme was all good, but the
ladles were particularly interested In the
boxing bout between J. E. Britt and W.
J. Leonard. It was a clever imitation of
a fight. The fencing between Professor
Louis Troncbet and E. Ortion drew ap
plause frequently from the spectators.
The Japanese wrestling by K. Inouye
and two pupils took the breath awav
from the ladles as well as from the pupils
Major Robert Reed's feats of swordsl
manship were thrilling. He placed a po
tato on the bare neck of G. L. Woolrieh
and cut the potato in. half with a slash
from a keen-edged sword. The blade

through the potato: *

It Is refreshing to know that Cal Ew-

They have ended a protracted engage

light of the fans. Los Angeles will have
them for thi3 week's series, and as a
consequence there will be some games
worth seeing ct Recreation Park. The
Eacramentos have come to town to meet
the Friscos. Owing to the shortening
days the games will be started at 2:45 p.

The Olympic Club team will go to
Honolulu for a Christmas game with the
Oahu College eleven. C. G. Bailey, a
University of California alumnus, who la
athletic instructor in the college, haa
written to J. Muma, the Olympic Club
football manager, giving him a guaran
tee of all expenses. The Olympic players
will sail some ten days prior to the data
of the game.
The California management received a
telegram yesterday from K. C. Gordon,
the Princeton manager, asking that an
offer of terms for a Christmas game be
made. Manager Decoto will wire an offer
of half the net receipts, with a guarantee
of expenses, contingent upon California" 9
success in the game with Stanford. The
cost of bringing the Princeton team out
would be about $5000, but as this would
be the first appearance on the coast of
cne of the "Big Four" teams it is be
lieved there would be no danger, of finan
cial loss to the university guaranteeing
expenses to the visiting team.
The offer comes to California through
the Influence of "King" Kelly, Califor
nia's old coach, who is head football
coach for hl3 alma mater this year. It
is the first time that the manager of one
of the "Big Four" has asked for a defin
ite offer of terms.
A definite proposal has come from
Princeton for a Christmas game in San
Francisco with the University of Cali
fornia team. The Berkeley men are will
ing provided they win In the big game
November 9 with Stanford. If they lose
it . Is probable a game between Stanford
=jid Princetpn will be arranged.

Indicted; as the Leader
V of a Big Ring of
In the Judicial proceedings which cul
minated recently in the indictment of
Customs Collector Hoey of the port of
Nogales by the United States Grand Jury
at Tucson, Ariz., David D. Jones, official
interpreter of Chinese for United States
District Attorney Marshall B. Wood worth,
acted a prominent part. He was detailed
by request of the United States Attorney
General at Washington to proceed to Tuc
son and assist the officers of the Govern
ment as interpreter for the Chinese wit
nesses and in translating Chinese letters,
etc., produced before the Grand Jury.
For more than a year past Chinese have
been landed at Guaymas, Mexico, then
taken overland and passed across the line
at Nogales into the United States. This
was in pursuance of a conspiracy, at the
head of which was the Collector of Cus
toms, and the members of . which* were
receiving large sums for landing Chinese
from Mexico. The ring was exposed by a
line rider named Webb. Webb was a cus
toms inspector, detailed by Collector Hoey
to guard a- portion of the frontier by pa
trolling it on i horseback. He. thought !t
strange that, he was never able to catch
any. Chinese crossing the line and that
certain points were kept out of his itin
erary.. So one day he disobeyed orders
and rode in a direction-opposite to that
which he had been ordered to take. He
bagged seventeen Chinese attempting to
get Into the United' States. Then the
matter was taken up by the United States
authorities. Secret Service Agent Dickie
and United States -District Attorney Mc-
Lamore of Texas were detailed to uproot
the ring, which they succeeded in doing
admirably. One of the chief conspirators
and boodlera, Chinese Inspector Josey
blew out his brains when confronted with
the evidences of his guilt. He had been
a church leader and posed as a very re
ligious man.

"In the second half, Keddie kicked- oft
for 45 yards, More running it In 20 yards.
After two line 'bucks and an exchange of
punts, California had the ball, 3 yards
from the center in California's territory.
Mini lost a : yard. Then it was that Whip
pie's great run with the equally great
Interference of Overall and Albertson won
California's first touchdown.- For the re
mainder of the game, California's better
condition, shiftier playing, better punting
and runnlng-in of punts, and better in
terference on end runs, made - its play
clearly superior. Except for. an occasional
lapse, the Nevada line was strong, fully
equal to California's. >.'
\u25a0<- Just at the end of the half Sherman
went in at half in Mini's place, and he
was given the ball In hope that he might
skirt the end for a touchdown. Big Rior
dan, however, was through the line after
him and caught him back of the line for a
loss. The game ended with the ball in
California's possession in the -center of
the field.
Captain Leadbetter Injured.
"Cleve" Leadbetter, Nevada's plucky
captain, had a rib fractured late in the
second half, • before California's second
touchdown. . It is feared he will not be
able to play in the game Saturday with
Stanford on the Stanford campus.

of '98 and '99, captain of the team in the
latter year, and • assigned to a place in
the "All-America team" of '98,. expressed
himself as well pleased with the showing
made by his team, considering that it

He ' complained •; that California's runners

work that will make him faster on his
feet and with his hands. He inaugurated
this system yesterday and as. a result he
was not fatigued at the close of his day's
work. The way he moved around the
gymnasium reminded one of Corbett or
some equally fast boxer. He started in
his day'B training. at 10 o'clock. For ten
minutes he rowed at the rate of thirty
strokes a minute, after which he donnec'
small cloves and had a seance the
bag. .The rat-a-tat sounded like distant
thunder. He .worked fast and perspired
freely. As a fitting 'finish: to this popu
lar form of exercise lie .rained heavy
left and right swings on the inflated rub
ber. Onlookers thought he would- burst
the bag with his tremendous blows, but
it withstood the walloping. After a few
minutes' rest Jeff skipped the rope.; He
pirouetted around ' the* gymnasium and
danced jigs, seldom interfering with the
whirling rope. He reeled off' 11S0 skips
without turning a hair and when he fin
ished informed his trainers that he was
perfectly satisfied with the condition of
his wind. He breathed freely and with
out effort. ';.; '• '"" \u25a0 '\u25a0\u25a0.• i' \u25a0

would send, him back a trifle each time.
This work was continued for some time
and the champion stopped when he saw
that Jack was losing, buttons and felt
weary. The work Jeffries did up to
this time would -have tired '.an
ordinary man. but as Jim is out
of -the ordinary,* he picked up light
dumbbells and side-stepped and danced
around the gymnasium fighting -an
imaginary opponent. Once in a while
he would follow a feint with a swing

be a rank outsider and started at 25 to 1
against Lord Wolverton's Osboch, which
was second a* the finish, was the favorite
at 100 to 14 against. The betting on C. W.
Wood's Lascaris, third horse, was 10 to 1
against, Codoman, ridden by Maher was
greatly fancied in France, but did not
flatter his supporters. M. Ephrussi,

He ate a hearty supper and retired early.

: A Tajisman for the Ring. V
These are busy days down at Ruhlln's
training quarters at -the Slx-mlle House.
It has been a long while since Blanken's
"gym" apparatus has been used so
roughly, for Gus Is a terror on everything
In the training quarters from the boxing
gloves to the nails In the floor. When he
works he goes at it with a snap and vim
that fairly shakes the building. Ruhlin
has reconsidered his vow not to 'put on
the gloves again before the big fight. Next
Saturday night Gus will Journey down to
Redwood City, where he .jwill - box four
friendly rounds with Joe McAuliffe, who
is opening a gymnasium and boxing school
there. Joe has been having a hard trial
oi u it for some years back. His old man
ager, Billy Madden, remembered the time
when "My b'ye Joe" was a money getter
In . the. prize ring and when he heard Joe
was ..going . to try to better himself In
Redwood City he , volunteered Ruhlin's
services. This will be the last time Ruh
lin will put on^a glove until he steps into
the ring with Jeffries. ;. -. V \u25a0'-\u25a0
,; Ruhlin may- be said to be taking things
practically easy as far as outdoor work is
concerned. A daily spin from his quarters
down to the Sierra Point House and back
constitutes all his road work. After his
rubdown Ruhlin lounges around the ver
anda with Denver Ed Martin and Charlie
Goff until dinner time. In the afternoon
he works out in the gymnasium. Ruhlin
set an unusually fast clip there j yester
day. He punched the bag with terriffc
power and speed for ten round3 and then
mauled "Denver Ed" all over the wrest
ling mat for five or ten minutes. It was
one of the few fast spurts Ruhlin will
indulge in from now until the time of the
