Importers of fine cigars were made
happy yesterday on'recelpt of the an
nouncement . by Customs Collector
Stratton of the abolition of the regis
tered trademark regulation. Under' the
terms of that regulation a -maker of
domestic cigars could obtain a reg
istered trademark for his product
bearing the name of a well known
brand of foreign make and then the
importation of the foreign cigar of
that name would be prohibited. Col
lector Stratton represented to the
Secretary of the Treasury that if the
rule were enforced at this port there
would be a loss of from $15,000 to
$20,000 a month in customs duties.
The department ; notified the Collec
tor yesterday, that the trademark reg
istry order had been rescinded, upon
the showing made *by, him. Assistant
Secretary Taylor In a letter received
yesterday by Mr. Stratton writes :
"It is my opinion that • persons in
the United States may not prevent the
Importation of articles well known v in
foreign countries under certain names
by, merely adopting and registering
that name as a trademark 1 in this
country. Your .action in permitting
an try of imported cigars is; proper."" ,

During the life of the agreement N.
L. Knudsen of Sonora was a client and
ih settlement of a bill for 510.000 for
services gave promissory notes for
$5000. According to the complaint
McClellan never accounted for any
money received, hence the suit./
The petition to the court asks for a
receiver for the firm of Riordan,
Lande & McClellan, as well as citing
the defendants to appear. The papers
have been forwarded to Sonora for
service. Johnson & Johnson are at
torneys for the plaintiffs.
In August, 1903. Riordan & Lande
entered into a partnership with Mc-
Clellan to conduct a law business in
Sonora under the firm name of Rior
dan, Lande & McClellan, with an
agreement that McClellan was to re
tain one-half of all profits of the firm
and the other one-half be paid to
Riordan & Lande.
Thomas D. Riordan and Edward
Lande of the firm of Riordan & Lande,
attorneys, have entered suit against
Clifford McClellan and X. L. Knudsen
of Sonora, Tuolumne County, to com
pel the former to account for certain
moneys, collected and the latter from
paying to McClellan several promis
sory notes.
Attorneys Ask the Court to Appoint
a Receiver and Dissolve the Firm

Jack Cordell finished his training at
Sheehan's yesterday and went home
for a good night's rest In his own bed
preparatory to his difficult task of
facing Rufe Turner for the second
time to-night at the Reliance Club.
Oakland. It was his own wish and
Billy Roche readily consented, as the
Hayes Valley lad docs not need the
watching that most fighters require.
!A little light exercise will put him
right for the ordeal or the evening
and he will have no quarrel with the
scales at 3 o'clock this afternoon,
when he must not weigh more than
3C3 pounds. •
Turner figures to beat the white boy,
but that docs not daunt Jack.- He ex
presses no fear of the outcome, even
to" fcis intimates, a thing that Is un
usual In a young boxer who has once
J)ccn knocked out by the man he Is
• to meet for the second time. Turner
Till be down from Stockton this morn
m ing. He has done conscientious train-
Ing arid appears the legitimate 7 to 10
choice the bettors have made him.
Rufe had such a close call before that
h» took no chances of being in poor
shape, this time.
• The first bout of the show will also
b^ a fifteen-round affair, with Rube
. Sn^th and George Brown as the prin
••cipals. The club has hung up a 5250
purse and the loser will touch no part
of it according to the agreementT A
Bide wager will also go to the suc
cessful one. Brown has a peculiar
style and believes the Colorado cham
pion is "made to order" for his strong
left hand. Smith is equally confident
cf winning.
Is a " to 10 Choice Over Cordell for
Their Second Meeting.
The Boating Association of Califor
nia has" arranged to accommodate
many people at the races. Seven
launches and a tug will leave Peter
son's wharf in San ; Francisco ' at 1
o'clock .Saturday afternoon and will
arrive in " time to see the' races,- which
begin at* 2:30 o'clock^ / ".
Another man for the 440-yard dash
is H. C. Green, who is credited with
:54 seconds for the distance. He will
also go in the relay. Tom McCrory
and Dal Twitchell are the team's mile
runners, with a record of 4:50 and 4:54
respectively. Maurice Tibballs will go
into the 220-yard dash and the 220
yard hurdles, which he negotiates in
:23 1-5 and :28 respectively.
In the weights Washington will have
Tom McDonald, who can thfo'w the
hammer 130 feet and put the shot
forty-one feet. In the jumps there
will be Dave Grant for the high jump,
broad jump and pole vault, his record
for these events being 5 feet 10 inches,
21 feet 6 Inches and 10 feet 6 inches
The track events are scheduled for
10 o'clock on Saturday morning at
Berkeley and in the afternoon the
rowing regatta will be held on the
Oakland estuary. The Washington
crew will be composed of Carl Van
Kuran. captain and bow; Dan Pullen,
forward waist; Clinton Lantz, after
waist; Fred McElmon, stroke.
There will be two Intercollegiate
races, the first ever held In California
waters, one varsity and one freshmen.
The varsity race will be a three-cor
nered affair, with crews from _Wash-
Ington, California and Stanford. The
freshmen race will be between Stan
ford and California,
Joe Pearson will do the 100, 220
and 440 yard dashes. He has covered
100 yards in 10 1-5 seconds. This, of
course, will not do against such men
as Abadie, Snedigar and Cadogan, who
are all 10-second men. Pearson can
do the 220-yard dash in :22 4-5, and
that is a little better. In the 440-yard
event his record is :51 3-5 seconds.
Edward Thompson and Ilex Smith,
who will go into these events', are not
so fast as their colleague.
Bob Pearson is the track .captain
and Joe Pearson's brother. He will
go into the half-mile and the, relay.
The half-mile he does in 2:01.' 1
The track team is the best Wash
ington ever turned out, but as this will
have been the first time the univer
sity's athletes have competed against
a university larger than their own
there is some doubt as to the way
It will result.
BERKELEY, April 26. — There came
to Berkeley to-day two sets of athlete^
from the University of Washington,
who have come all this way to match
their prowess and their brains against
those same qualities in the men of the
University of California. One of the
sets is a rowing crew and the other
a track team. They arrived in San
Francisco on the steamer City of
Puebla this afternoon and came
straightway to Berkeley, intending to
get right into harness and make the
best of the time between now and Sat
urday, when the trials will be held.
Both the crew and the team show
a husky lot of young men, and, judg
ing from their records, California will
have to hustle to win. The crew has
already demonstrated its superiority,
having beaten California on Lake
Washington last summer. The oars
men had the advantage of home wa
ters and larger experience. -

NEW YORK April 26. — Jamaica results:
First race, six furlonss— Princelet won. Belle
of Belle Meade second. Monte Carlo third.
Time. 1:15 1-5.
NEW YORK, April 26.— The Dark
town Derby, the last event at Jamaica
to-day, caused a great deal of excite
ment. Southampton, owned by Bob
Johnston, had been touted among
allythe negroes of Greater New York,
and when he romped home a winner
the joy of the colored people knew no
bounds. Shortly after betting opened
It seemed all the negroes for miles
around were gathered in the bett{ng
ring. The flow of cash was so heavy
that it drove Southampton's price by
degrees from 30 to 1 down to 12 to
1 at post time, and even this price
dropped a little before the horses
were sent away. It could only be des
ignated a race by courtesy. It served
its purpose of making the negroes
happy, for Southampton won after
many changes of position in a des
perate drive.
The rain of last night and to-day
left the track heavy. This caused a
number of withdrawals, but it did
not affect the attendance.
Special Dispatch to The Call
Best of all the news was, a report
from Superintendent McLaren of Gold
en Gate Park. The Commissioners are
pleased with the way in which the as
sociation has conducted its business
and have caused surveyors and land
scape gardeners to commence work on
the amphitheater. If. $10,000 is in
Treasurer O'Kane's hands by, the last
of this. month ground will be broken
on "Monday next and the gigantic
scheme wil be under way. The actual
cash on hand is only a trifle short
of that amount and no trouble is an
ticipated in collecting enough of .the
pledges to make up the deficit.
President Thomas H. Williams ofjthe
New California Jockey Club, who has
always been a liberal patron of high
class sports of the field, contributed
5500 to the fund ye3terda'y.
The California. Associated Cyclists
and the Cycle Board of Trade will
meet to-morrow night in joint session
at the Armory, 25 Page street, to dis
cuss ways and means for raising
money for the park project. A call
has been issued for all Interested and
it is expected it will receive a hearty
Word was received from the Olympic
Club that the directors would convene
on Friday night of this week with
the same object in mind, and com
munications from various athletic
bodies were at hand with the news
that an active campaign of raising
funds was being prosecuted. Thus all
the previously backward organizations
have been drawn into the whirlpool of
labor and the end to be gained is con
sidered already in sight.
An executive meeting of the Amateur
Driving and Athletic Association was
held yesterday morning and individual
reports of the most encouraging char
acter were had. An interview with
Thomas A. Driscoll of the California
Polo and Pony Racing Association was
recced, in which the hearty co-opera
tion of the exponents of that exciting
game was assured in support of the
Park athletic grounds. A special meet
ing of the polo people will be held on
Monday night to take the matter up.
Mr. Driscoll explained the lethargy of
his branch of the sport as being due
to the area of the proposed infield of
the pleasure ground in Golden Gate
Park, which, he said, was a trifle un
der the regulation size of a polo field.
The difference is so small, however,
that it will not deter the scheme now
that everything has been adjusted. A
certain soil on which to plant the turf
is necessary for good polo and that
will be attended to when the associa
tion lends its aid.

Mr. Muf ray "wagers, . through Dan
McCarty,' who has" the four-year-old
mare now, that she will trot or pace a
mile in 2:10 or better during the pres
ent season. This must be done on a
regulation track, under National or
American, Trotting Association rules.
It is also stipulated that it must be
done in a public race and at an open
Mr. Jermyn seems to have the best
of the wager, as harness horses, es
pecially those which are fancied by
their owners, are always liable to go
wrong. As Lillian Palmer must make
her record in a race she must defeat
a lot of horses which are capable of
showing. great speed, lfNit is desirable
to win a heat or a race.
The outcome of the sporting wager
will be watched with interest.
Although it will be weeks before the
trotters and pacers are spinning down
the grand circuit, the harness horses
are already getting. their fast workouts,
and fast trials always supply material
for warm discussions.
\One of these discussions resulted in a
$5000 wager being made at the Palace
Hotel yesterdaj', which will be decided
under novel conditions, 'lhe principals
are F. H. Jermyn, a wealthy sportsman
of . Scranton, Pa., and James Murray,
a banker and mining, man of Butte,
Air. Jermyn wanted to buy from Dan
McCarty the mare Lillian Palmer, by
Steinway, out of. a mare by Idyl
Wilkes, which was originally owned by
Mr. Murray. The deal fell through, but
out of the negotiations came the novel
Persons representing the outlaw box
ing association have made overtures
to George James of the registration
committee of the Pacific Athletic Asso
ciation, asking that the clubs be taken
lnio c the fold again. The matter will
t>p considered at a meeting of the gov
erning body in amateur sports shortly.
The amateur fighting game in this
city has Juet about run its course. Thia
wa» evidenced last night when a hand
ful of. shivering spectators collected
In "Vfoodwa^d's Pavilion and had thrust
upon them eix bouts which were ab
solutely the limit. The first flgrht on
the card was a cood one. but the next
was awful and they prew worse as the
programme continued.
It was .a disgrrace to the game for
the management of the Hayes Valley
Club to promote such an exhibition.
On paper, the bouts looked promising,
but when It came time to get the fight
ers -into, the ring they could not be
found, so the matchmaker was forced
to search through the crowd and pick
up some dub to fight.
Most of the spectators left before
the affair had progressed far. Those
who' remained were shocked at what
they saw. George Sullivan was picked
up 'pome place and pitted against
Nobby Otts. Sullivan quit in about a
minute. Dennis O'Connor and Tom
Kelly went four rounds, but they did
not light. They simply kicked and
hugged. Kelly got the decision.
Patsy McGee got a punch in the jaw
from Xbe Label and the bout was
stopped in the second round. Jack
Carter, a big, fat youth who never
eaw a boxing glove before, went up
against Frank Smith. Smith landed
a coupje of' wild swings and Carter
stayed' down for the count in the sec
ond round. Jack Moran chopped Char
ley Ellis'to pieces and got the decision.
IJllis did not know how to fight and
F.hould n«?vcr have been allowed to en
ter the ring. Young McClure hit Dave
Lynch a punch in the jaw in the first
round and Lynch went down for keeps.
Harry Williams and Harry Baker, two
bantams, put up the only good fight
of the night. Williams was the ag
gressor 'and earned the decision.

Johnny Schorr's Olympian had
nothing to beat in the six-furlong
purse run, and at scant odds won
galloping. The Lieutenant \ finished
second, eight lengths ahead of Lunga. 1
¦ "Big Bill" Knapp had his last
mount of the season, on Colonel Van,
winner of the mile and seventy-yard
selling affair. Dell Fountain's gelding
looked a legitimate favorite, and,
backed from 3 to 2. led Possart
across the line less than a length.
Crosswaite finished third on Isabellita,
a 10 to L chance. Boutonniere, a well
backed one, pulled up lame.
On the. strength of a close second
to Andrew B. Cook a few days back,
when carrying eleven pounds more
weight, Lady Atheling looked a good
thing for the second seven-furlong
event. The only other starter to put
up ffny sort of an argument was the
10 to 1 shot. Sol Lichtenstein, and he
made himself so conspicuous that but
a nose separated the pair at the finish.
Show honors went ; to Shell Mount.
Herbert rode the winner. Lady Athel
ing, against which 6 to 1 could be h.ad.
Roach could get~McChesney beaten
at a country fair, for which reason
Roach was given the mount on Col
onel Anderson in the last, a mile and
a sixteenth run. Then, too, Colojjel
Anderson cannot run in the mud, so
the smart set unloaded on Colonel
Ballantyne, forcing his odds down
from 2 to 1 to even money. The lat
ter proved a great bird in the mud, for
It took him 1 minute and 53 seconds to
cover the distance. During • the in
termin Roach made a tour of the sur
rounding country with the other Col
onel, finally arriving in time to finish
third, Theodora L running into second
place. \
For the seventh time this season
The Call picked five of the six win
ners again yesterday. To date 288
winners have been given, an average
of more than two a day for 141 days,
which is the largest, number ever
