Fifty -three Cyclers

The bicycle track which forms part
cf the wonderful athletic stadium in
Golden Gate park was dedicated by the
California associated cyclers yesterday
\u25a0with races for the western champion
ships. There wb.s a big crowd of spec
tators present and they had the op
portunity of seeing the largest field
that ever started in a track race on
this coast.
The three mile handicap brought out'
S3 etarters and they presented a pic- 1
turesque appearance as they raced i
about the oval. The race was won by
A. HaJftead of the Bay City wheel

time appear unusually fast.
The Stockton trophy race, which was ]

was postponed. There were several
protests which will hare to be sub

cision. The Garden City wheelmen
claimed that they had not been given
the customary 30 days' notice that the
race was to be run. The New Century

the star rider of the Bay City wheel- J
men. It is charged that DeMara raced <
_ for money at Salt Lake. The wheel- j
itata must have a separate code of ath- !

Hornets Lose Game
to Vampires
OAKLAND, Nov. 10. — The short ref- I
erfe crop was ac-alr. responsible for the
postponement of one of the soccer
league games, the official detailed for
•the Hornet-Vampire game at Alameda
failles to put In an appearance. A
friendly contest was arranged and the
Hornets were swamped by a 9 to 0
score. The Albion Rovers maintained
their unbeaten record by defeating the
.Scotias by 2 goals to 0. An overscrappy
\u25a0h'cotian was ordered off the field by the
referee and the Scotchmen protested
the game on this account. As the ref
eree -was the regular official and his
<i*?cisions are supposed to be final, there
is little chance of the protest availing.
The Rover-Scotia game was an ex
hibition of team work compared to the
mlck and rush frame, the Rovers pos
sessing the combination. There was
ittlo to rhose betv.-en the teams in the
irst half hour, but the superiority of
the Hovers was scon before the close
of the first period. Milne and Donohue
did- many clever things on the wing. .
and with <""ockburn playing a superb
frame behind them, the Scotia custo
dian was kept en tentor hooks. Ko \
scoring was accomplished in this period.
The Scotlas showed Improved form
In the final half and made many -dan
jrerous raids on the Rover goal. Steven
son, the reserve goal keeper, who was
oJSc'ating between the sticks for the
Albior.s, was very unsteady and a goal
was imminent every time the Scotias
got within shooting distance.
\u25a0 There were several promising rows
rtopped !n the bud, but two of the play
ts finally got together and a lively '
fcuSle ensued in midfleld. As a result
of the trouble Glenn of the Scotias was
ordered off the field by the referee and
a <jflay of five minutes was caused by
the artr^mentlve proclivities of the de-
I osed player's team mates. With 10
p.srainst 11 the Scotch lads were no
match for the Rovers, and before the
f:nish the Maroons scored a couple of
\u25a0groals and won the game.
tThe following players took part:
Scotias — Buchannan, Sharp, Dewar,
Reed, Livingston, "Wardlaw, Armour,
Fornrnervlile. Glenn, Haig and Briggs.
Albion Rovers — Stevenson, Selkirn,
"McLaughlin. Mclntyre. Cockbum, Me-

Honolulu Stars Win
Another Game
Defeat Picked Team After an
Interesting Exhibition at Re
creation Park
By W. J
The Honolulu Stars hun? another one
on the pick me up aggregation at the
Valencia street lot yesterday afternoon
by shoring- five runs through in the
second period. The morning' game
west 12 rattling innings to a tie, the
ecore standing S to 3 when the time
limit expired. Big crowds viewed both
games and there was nobody who could
cay that he or she did not get an
honest run for the money left at the
box office.
The appearance of Frank Chances,
leader or the Chicago Cuba, tho world's
greatest ball team, lent a lot of class
to both events and Incidentally brought
many a dollar over the counter. Chance
played first base for the losers, bnt if
everybody else on the teem performed
as he did there might have been a dif
ferent result.
\u25b2 fierce bombardment of the curres
of Willis Hogan by the Stars marred
the afternoon' game In the second
inning. With this round cut out the
game would have been one sweet exhi
bition, with honors about even up. But
it only takes one round to spoil any
kind of a ball game.
Donahue opened up the second with
a hit to short and Devereaux put the
ball down at the plate. Hogan tossed
It away at first and both men ad
vanced a peg. Burns' long fly to left
let Donahue eneak in and Devereaux
registered after Hildebrand and Zeider
had stung the leather on the beak.
Heine Heltmuller came along with a
single and Nick Williams polished off
the good \u25a0work with a three cushloner
against the left field fence, making It
five for the inning and six for the
game, the Stars having gathered one
during the previous round.
Big Billy Burns twisted 'em around
the necks of his opponents in a most
bewildering manner up to the seventh,
when Pa Van Haltren sneaked In a bit
and beat it to the pan on Piper's two
bagger to center and wild pitch. A hit
by Wheeler and a bit of rough fielding
on the part of the Stars gave the pick
lings their second and last one in the
getaway spasm.
Chance playe<l seven Innings. The
first time up he -was given a great ova
tion after being introduced as "the
greatest ball player In the world." He
immediately responded with a double
against the center field fence. His next
try resulted In a pretty single through
the Infield. He showed a lot of class
around the first bag and got away with
13 putouts.
Next "Wednesday afternoon the Stars
will play the St. Marys college team
on the local field. St. Mary's expected
to play Hal Chase, the great first base
man of the New York Americans, but
as Chase Is an outlaw player tho other
league men cannot appear if he is In
the game. President Cal Ewlng settled
the matter definitely last night by stat
ing that Chase must keep away if the
Pacific coast league players take part
in the game. The score:

to a tic and had to be called because
the time limit expired before the de

picked team got to Jones in the first

Defeat Oakland State Leaguers by a
Score of 4 to 3
SAN JOSE. Nov. 10.— In a game full
of poor plays that make excitement for
the bleachers, San Jose- this afternoon
defeated Oakland by breaking a 3 to S
tie in the ninth Inning. The score at
the end was 4 to S.
Bloomceld. who has signed to play
next year with MoCredie's Portland
team, was in the box for the visitors,
while an amateur, Rudolph, represent
ed the prune pickers on the rubber.
The Oakland men hit the latter' 3 offer-
Ings hard but never consecutively and,
barring errors by Webber at second
base, should have won the gams. Web
ber fell down on four of the easiest
chances that come t° second basemen.
Bloomneld, as usual, had the kind of
curves the locals find hard to locate,
but poor support took away his cour
age and in the latter part of the game
his old time wlldness came back with j
a rush. Three double plays credited
to the locals kept the contest interest-
Ing. In two of these Hal Chase, who
figures in the official score as Shultz,
took part. Lacey, stolen from the ]
Mountain View team, stabbed a hot
liner with one hand and threw a ven
turesome runner out at first. Chase's
work with the stick was the best he
has yet done here. The score:

Kaufman Will Train
at Harbin Springs
Al Kaufman, the young California
boxer who is to meet Jack (Twin) Sul
livan at the Mission street arena on
the afternoon of Thanksgiving day,
will leave for Harbin Springs this
morning. He will be accompanied by
Manager Billy Delaney, who will give
him a careful preparation for the
fight. Delaney expects to send Kauf
man into the ring much .lighter than
he has been fighting In the past, so
there will not be such a disparity as
was expected In the size of the men.
Kaufman was above the 200 pounfi
mark for a time, but lost some of this
weight on his recent eastern trip. If
the work he does at Harbin has the
expected effect he may enter the rins;
not far from the 180 pound mark. As
Sullivan usually weighs about 175
pounds, there will be little to choose
between them In this particular. Kauf
man wants to secure Denver Ed Mar
tin as a sparring: partner, as he thinks
the . clever colored man would help
him develop his epeed.
Sullivan is at Shannon's, ' and, ' be
tween his gymnasium and his piano
he is getting into good condition. Sul
livan is a great entertainer, and a
piano is as much a necessary, adjunct
of his training quarters as a punching
bag, or a sparring partner.
Owen Moran entertained a large
crowd at Shannon's yesterday by box-
Ing three fast rounds with Alf Wicks,
his English trainer. Their work was
so Interesting that It drew 'applause
after each round. Moran has been
treated 6O well here that he feels quite
at home, and there is nothing to t dis
turb his preparations for his meeting
with. Nell.
Neil is losing no time and promises
to be fit for the severest competition
when the date of the fight comes
around. He has not done much boxing
for ». number of months, so he Is pay
ing particular attention to that de
partment of his training. He' is box
ing v wlth ,all comers at his Emeryville
quarters and they can't come too big
or too fast for him. . \ .'.

This lineup naturally win not please
every one, especially at Stanford and
California, but if you take the team
all in all I think it will be found to be
an extremely strong combination. After
one week's training I hay* no hesita
tion in saylaar that the above team
would make a splendid showing against
any New Zealand or Australian senior
club team. For Instance, place it
against the Sydney university team and
there would be a struggle royal.
Against a combined all black or Aus
tralian team the players would put up
a good fight, but would stand no chance
to win. »
The team has been selected from
among the best players in Nevada, Cali
fornia and Stanford universities.
Butler at fullback has played consist
ently all through tha season and his
ability for the position made his selec

he would not have been selected, but
one has to look back through the sea
son to get a reliable record to go by.
Vandervoort was acknowledged by
all to be the best center three-quarter
playing In the universities.
Holman brought forth a lot of dis
cussion, but on past performances and
Saturday's showing he was selected in
preference to Dwigrglns. Johns was se
lected without much opposition.
Cerf and Oanong would make a beau
tiful pair at five.
At halfback there is no disputing
Fenton's selection. He is a half baok
worthy to be selected in the best team
that either New South Wales or
Queensland could produce.
Tuller has a cinch on the wing for
ward position and his play all through
the season In this position has been
excellent. •
Th« forwards were selected on their
all round ability, rath'«r \ than on" their
ntnees for one particular position in
the scrum. I think a forward ought
to be able to take any position, wheth
er front or rear rank. The selection
of Freeman of Nevada in the pack will
probably surprise many, but by his
splendid games here and against the
Barbarians In Reno, his selection could
not very well be overlooked.
The selection of two front rankers
created a lot of discussion. It was
pointed out that Koerner and Barnl
cott were not equally . matched in
height.. As before stated, my opinion
'is. that every player should be compe
tent to fill any forward position. With
this in view, and with the sole object
of selecting the beat possible team, the
forwards were all selected, as were
the backs, on their all round ability.
The Barbarians have issued a chal
lenge to Saturday's victorious team. I
would like to see them play a picked
team from the varsities. It would be
a good game and would bring out the
best of Rugby in each team. —
In my report of Saturday's game, as
published in The Call, I made an er
ror, which I feel It my duty to correct.
The error was made through my be
coming involved in a 'discussion on
the * number of rubstitutes. When
writing the report I was - under the
impression that California had used
her three substitutes and brought Re
nouf on as a fourth. I made the mis
take in confusing i a Stanford substi
tute for a California one. I did not
discover the- error till too late and It
is due California that I make this ex
planation. California only used three
substitutes — Dyer. Olascock and Re
nouf. This Is all the rules call for
and the blue and gold were Justified In
putting in their third man if they saw
fit. \u25a0
Stanford Will Lose Fewer Players
Than Berkeley by Graduation
Looking over the list of the Rugby
gladiators who battled yesterday: it 's
noticeable to : those who have followed
college sports that the defeated team
of the University .of California will be
practically disbanded by graduation
this year,. while at Stanford the ranks
of the victorious .fighters will be but
little depleted. "Nine seniors who
fought in the lineup, of the blue and
gold yesterday will take their degrees
In May. Of the Palo Alto forces but six
are seniors and of this number but two
are certain to leave Stanford.
Of the winning varsity of yesterday

Captain* Koerner, should he graduate,
will probably return to take post gTad
uate work at Stanford, and again be a
tower of strength in the front rank of
the cardinal scrum. His teammate,
Homer Rhyne. is a member of the
Christmas class of '07 and will take
his degree in December. To fill this
vacancy in the; front; rank there isC.
C. Terrill. a husky, junior,' who fought
for , the position occupied .'\u25a0 by Rhyne

Winner of the Opening Handicap
Is a Turf Performer of Class
J. R. Jeffery
The sensational victory of Jack Nun
nally in the opening handicap on Sat
urday leads to the conviction that ; the
Sierra Nevada stable will have to he
reckoned with In the decision of the
stakes for which he and his stablemate,
the clever mare Neva Lee, have been
nominated. Both of these horses can
eprlnt as well as go a route. Jack
Nunnally came out of Saturday's race
In splendid-- shape and It is not at all
improbable that he will be a starter in
the Oakland handicap at 6y» furlongs,
which will be the stake feature of next
Saturday's card." This race will be
scarcely less valuable than the Open
ing handicap .and will be well .worth
maklngr &Md for* Neva Lee is not ret
reedy for a race, but is standing train
ing after being on the shelf for a year
and will be «een under colors shortly.
The ; Slerm Nevada stable has . a com
fortable lead In the winning owners'
list and, may. be able to hold it for
sosm time.
It has been leaned that the swerv
ing of Tack Nunnally In the. stretch
Saturday was due, not to tiring, but to
the slipping of one of Jockey Miller's
relas. The horse has an exceedingly
sensitive mouth and responds with re
markable rapidity to the slightest
touch of his rider. When he first came
into the possession of his present own
er it was difficult to control him on
the track on account of this sensitive
ness. .
The card far today at Bmeryrflle Is better
than tbt aTerage, as Monday cards go. Large
fields will be the role and all the races hare an
open look. The opener will be a flTe furlong
dash for 3 year olds. Heather Scott, Harrel and
Herfres look likeliest of the lot, bat - others
hare undoubted chances. These three hare
shown by their work that they are ready to race.
Lackfoot, from the Carman stable, has also been
working well. Emma G, from the stable of. M.
J. Daly, has been here only a few days. Banna
tyno Is a maiden In the stable of J. S. Hawkins.
Tawasentha looks to be the class of the selling
platers In the second, a subscription affair at
six furlongs. Sba Is fit and has her speed.
May Amelia. Aftermath and Crip bare also been
working well. Eyebrlgbt. starting here for the
first time. Is not much.
Of the dozen entered for the third. Pelham and
Renben are likely to be fighting It (rat at the
finish. Pelham has been breaking watches in
Ms work and will win if be can last six fur
longs. Beaben is In good shape after baring
ran same good races in the north. Cholk Hed
rick Is fast, bnt erratic, harlng a tendency to
ran oat In the stretch. * .
The fourth, a futurity course sprint for all
ages, has \u25a0 attracted the classiest field on the
card. S. C. Hlldreth's crack colt. Meellck. will
rule farorlte. bat B. F. Carman's Fleming may
be able to take the Hlldreth colt's measure, as
It ' will be a case of a 2 year old conceding a
chunk of weight to a 3 year old. Fleming ran
a clever race In Saturday's futurity course sprint
after being as good as left at the poet. Creston
has been working great puns, a half in less than
:43 being placed to his credit yesterday.
Orcban looks to hare it on the others In the
fifth, a selling affair at a mile and a sixteenth,
with Nabonassar as the contender. Orchan beat
Nabonaasar handily enough Saturday. Kermlt.
a horse that Is generally a "hot" - thing. Is
likely to run Into the show.
The mile purse race, with which the program
Is scheduled to close, will be contested by a
clever and well balanced field. - Marc Antony
II and Colonel White are horses of fair class
and hare been doing well In their work. They
are likely to be right there at the end. Masea
is hardly ready In the opinion of the work watch
era.: San Alrlso and Bed Leaf are fit. Veil had j
bad lock In Saturday's stake eTent tnd may
do better today. She Is a fast trick and has
worked sensationally well. Optician worked rery
fast for the Opening handicap, bat may be
orertralned a bit. \u25a0 • \u25a0 - . - ; "
A number- of handicaps arranged for this week
at Oakland will bring out the best horses in
trslnlng, including a number of star performers
from eastern points.
\u25a0 Interest will center principally Itn the Oakland
handicap to be run Saturday next. It is at
six and a half furlongs for 2 year olds and up
ward and has $1,600 added. Among the eligible*
may be mentioned Jack Nunnally, Uncle. Mont
gomery. Veil, Marc Antony 11, Bapld Water,
Meellck, Gene BusseU, Sujrannald, Ed Hall, Acro
bat and Magazine. The Clorerdale handicap at a
mile and a sixteenth will also -be run Saturday.
The Santa Bosa handicap will be the attraction

Barney Schretber, fn relating how the Keene-

Keene's met him when he was at Lexington and
asked him If he would sell Sain, and If he
would name a price on the horse. Schrelber told
the gentleman that be was willing to sail Sain
If he could gat $100,000 for him. Permission
was asked to submit it to Keene and Major
Dalagerfleld. - This request was granted and aft
erward . a representatlre of Keene came to see
Schrelber and went with him to Woodlawn farm
to Inspect the stallion. "The deal was not
closed, nor- was It called off." says Schrelber.
"and It Is in exactly the same status as when
I was asked to name the price." i There. Is no
doubt that an offer was made for the horse and
that he was inspected by the negotiator. But
there Is a lot of doubt about the authority of
the friend of Keene. who has been disclaimed
by those who would hare represented Keene

of the cardinal squad, is a law stu

changes in the remainder of the team,
as Vandervoort, the only other senior
who made the first lineup, will return
in .all probability : to take advanced
work. Mitchell and Ganongf at five
eights, are r both sophs. Holman and
Owen, the two wings, are juniors, and
in addition Cook and Reed, the subs
for ;. these places, are sophomores and
good men. Cadwalader and Brown, the
two -fullbacks, are junior and freshman
Mayers,' the wing forward, and C.
Pemberton are both good for another
year. Stanford , should have back a
veteran team of from 12 to 14 m»n as

will ably fill up the breeches. %

Given Hard Game
Grant M. Smith
Two tennis tournaments were com
pleted on the courts yesterday. Mau
rice McLoughlln, the coast champion,
carried off the honors at the California
club. ' while . Clarence Griffin and Fitz
Guerin -were victorious at the park.
The feature of the 'day's play was the
final match of the handicap singles
tournament at the California club. The
contestants were Carl Gardner and
Maurice McLoughlln. ; The coast cham
pion managed to win after a bard five
set match, but had an extremely close
calL Gardner played great tennis in
the first two sets and clearly outplayed
the champion. McLoughlln then pulled
himself together and in the last three
sets played a fine uphill gam*.
After taking two sets, Gardner real
ized he had a great chance to lower the
champion's colors and tried his hardest
in each of the next three sets. He was
right after the champion all the way,
but was not equal to the occasion. In
the early part of the match Gardner
drove beautifully and passed McLough
lln repeatedly at the net. After losing
two sets McLoughlln knuckled down to
hard work and turned the tables on his
opponent. The score in his favor was
4-6. 3-6. 6-4. 6-3. 6-4.
In the semifinals B. F. Xoursa took
the first set from Gardner, but the lat
ter won the next two easily. Xourss
received a handicap of owe 4-6. The
score in Gardner's favor was 6-8, 6-1,
6-2. : •V-'-'v
The other semifinal, match went to
McLoughlln by default Ex-Champion
Melville Long for some reason did not
put In an appearance until late in the
afternoon, when the final match was
nearing completion. Many spectators
were on hand in - anticipation of the
match, but were doomed to disappoint
Griffin and . Guerin won the final
match in the handicap doubles from R.
N. Whitney and Fred Adams at the
park. The former had a lead of two
sets from the preceding Sunday, which
proved too much for their opponents
to overcome. Whitney and Adams
played much better tennis than on the
day the match was begun. The third
set, which had stood at 6-6. was played
over and went to Whitney and Adams
by a score of 6-2. Griffin and Guerin
made a poor showing in this set and it
looked . very much as if Whitney and
Adams would . make a five set match
of it. Griffin and Guerin. however, im
proved In the next set and won It by
a score of 6-4, giving them the match.
The complete score was 6-4, 9-7, 2-6.
6-4. - Griffin and Guerin received a
handicap of owe 15.
.The annual academic championship
tennis tournament will be held In the
Golden Gate park courts next Saturday.
Little interest : attaches to the event,
because the outcome is a foregone con
clusion. Coast Champion Maurice Me-
Loughlin will represent Lowell high
school in singles and he and Robert
Strachan. the junior coast champion,
will be that Institution's representative

any possibility of a victory for any of

Park Commissioners
to Aid Athletes
Will Provide a Dressing Room
for 300 Competitors and Also
a Fresh Water Plunge }
By R. A. Smyth
The park commissioners are planning
to add to tha many attractions they
hare provided for the youth of the city
in the great public playground. Before
the next athletic season is in full
•wing they will have a fresh water
plunge in proximity to the stadium and
adjoining it an artistic building with
dressing room accommodations for 300
The plunge could be made available
today, but this Is not swimming
weather, so the boys will have to wait
until next season. Superintendent John
McLaren, who has given so much
thought to the boys, will convert an
abandoned cement reservoir into the
plunge. All it requires Is to hava the
water la It- drained off and then be
\u25a0riven a thorough cleaning.
The reservoir Is on a little knoll op
posite the shed at the speedway. At'
the foot of this knoll and west of the
north tunnel, which Is the entrance to
the stadium, Is a sheltered nook la
which the clubhouse will be erected In
time to be available next spring. The
ground la of irregular shape. The build
ing will b« curved to follow the line of
the roadway which leads Into the stad
John Elliott, the representative of the
Olympic club on the board of governors
Of tho Pacific Athletic association, "and
Peter Mclntyre, the former trainer of
the Olympic club and an authority on'
athletics, went over the plans yester
day with Superintendent Mci*ren. Tha
building will be amply provided with
shower baths and other . conveniences
for the athletes. The plunge will be
lesa than 60 feet away and will b«
available for the boys after they have
finished their training or competition.
In discussing the many things which
the commissioners have done for the
athletes. Superintendent McLaren said
yesterday: "Wo are amply repaid for
all our trouble if the people will use
the grounds after we have prepared
them. If they trample a few flowers
or wear out some of the turf we have
no complaint to make, as such things
can be replaced. VTe are anxious to
have the horsemen, cyclers and ath
letes decide where they want their
races to finish. It Is not desirable to
have these finishes at various points,
as It Is difficult to handle the crowds.
TVhen these finishes are selected we
will provide fences and other arrange
ments to keep spectators off the tracks
and out of the way of those compet
"Whenever the pololsts are ready to
play an exhibition game for the pub
lic at the stadium If they will give us
short notice I will see that they have
a safe field of regulation size. The
field Is planted with a combination of
English rye and Kentucky bluegrasa
and when this Is clipped It should ba
all they could desire."
The stadium, which Is the only one
of Its kind In the world, is growing
rapidly In popular favor. Big crowds
gather each Sunday to see the speed
way horses In action and to watch tha
football and other games. Next season
the field and tracks will be In such
demand for competitive events' that the
commissioners will probably have to
pass upon formal requests for the use
of the grounds so that there can be
no conflict.
The • grammar school athletes, who
have been In the background for some
time past, are expected to play an im
portant part In the games to be held
there. The athletic officials will de
vote much thought to them next year
and hundreds of them will be seen in
