lore'fl flag, will head the squadron
of,yachts on the cruise"round the bay,
the starting gun being timed to ex
plode about 10:30.
The various skippers will be given
instructions from the Martha before
-the set sailing time, and when the
-•'hooks are weighed will fall in-line
behind the commodore's flagship. Leav.
ing the San Francisco clvb T anchorage
at Sausalito the program is to sail
across the bay to the Presidk) shoal
buoy,* and from there the? whole fleet
will cruise along the water front to
the" ferry building.
Practically every yacht in the San
Francisco fleet will be'out for? today's
cruise in squadron. Many yachts that
formerly belonged to other* clubs 7 are
how on the register of the San Fran
cisco club, and these will take ; their
initial sail today as members of this
club. Among.these are? the Genesta.*
Discovery, Ruby, the Ruby S and the
Emma, • ; ' » .. r ■. >
Special attention. will be paid to the
'fleet of schooner yachts that will be
out with the San Franciscans.. The
Martha, of course, will be there. ♦ Then
the old Chispa will be 7 out, -with/its
altered sail plan, the Caprice, the Ag
gie, the flying Seafarer and the" new
eastern yacht- Kdris will have Its first
cluh sail today. *
The Aeolian Yacht club is also sched
uled to have Its opening sail in squad
ron today. Early this morning the
motor boats belonging to the club will
tow the sail yachts out of the creek.
Commodore George Jones will hoist
his flag on the trim sloop Wave, and
will issue orders 7to the skippers to
head for -Belvedere.
On arrival off the .Corinthian Yacht
club house the opposition yacht club
Will he officially saluted from the flag
ship Wave, and from there the Aeo
lian squadron will head for Sausalito,
where the San Francisco Yacht club
■will be duly saluted as well. Leaving
Sausalito the fleet -will head for the
Sa n Francisco water front, and it is
expected that the San r Francisco, club
fleet will be passed and further salutes
exchanged. .
A The* Pacific Motor Boat club will
have a cruise with their power boats
today. Commodore Hawkins, in his
cruiser and flagship La Ola. will head
tie fleet of cruisers and.power boats.
Others scheduled to participate in the
erniser class are Dr. George? L. Bean's
Virginia, that won the club cruiser
race last year, the Leonore, Naiad, Lisa
and Isabel.. r~
If the weather conditions permit the
Pacific motor boat fleet will cross to
Sausalito and join the San Francisco
*»cht club fleet in the cruise along the
San Francisco water front. If the sea
is at all choppy this part 7 of: the pro
gram will be eliminated, and 1 the fleet
of motor boats will cruise round Belve
dere and Tiburon. This has been de
cided on owing to the large number
of small boats that would be unable
to cruise across the bay. X
Yesterday the club held open house,
which was largely attended. During
the afternoon -a series of aquatic
sports were pulled off, including : canoe
races, tilting in canoes and an exhibi
tion by C. H. Crocker's high power

The Corinthian Yacht club' has an
open date today. The majority of the
yachts will be out : today, -probably,
cruising round the bay to*witness the
squadron cruises of the San Francisco
and Aeolian yachts. ,
Former Commodore Dudley J. Keane
and Captain George Martin of the Cali
fornia Yacht club, 7 recently returned
from a seven weeks' cruise in the arch
ipelago regions of Tahiti. The local
salts reports wonderful, cruising 7 in
these southern waters, with a pictur
esqueness that is 7altogether? different
to anything to be found on§this coast.
They kept a sharp look 7 out?for the
schooner Commodore, which left ? here
several weeks ago ; for the islands, \in
charge of Louis Ward, also of the Aeo
lians. The schooner .was-not; sighted,
however, and it >? was surmised that
Ward had : taken a more westerly
course to get advantage of the trade
winds. — "

til last Saturday- at the "Pennsylvania

iv.His > work yesterday*stamps him as. a
remarkable athlete—a freak. The svery
fact that -a* man can run 'r220 yards in
20 4-5 seems beyond all comprehension,?
yet f the dispatches ; state that ? the tim - /
Ing, was accurate "and; the measurement ?
of |the?? track ? absolutely2accurate. ? His
time shows ;that he j ran the distance 12
yards Inside even /time, a most re-,
markable feat. .77'- 7
)X Not only, In the 220 yard did he show
his v speed, but in his; heat?of the- 100
yards; he stepped the ?distance' in ?9 3-5
seconds and the final in,9 4-5 The per
formance in 'the* 100 yards is relatively?
better than the 220. though the? times
show a difference of !six7 yards ? inside
even time between the two events. 7 The
relative merit of the 100, however/??
comes from the fact that in this event
athletes do not have the chance to get
under way the same manner that,
they have In the;longer distance/ The
average ?man"; who -beats; even time in
; the 220 yards, |if the (time" was taken
for an ? intermediate century, - would be
found to be running the distance : in
9 3-5, and very probably much? better??
than j* that x \ time. Robinson yesterday,?
probably ran A his; 100 i yards ? anywhere
between 30 yards and 175 yards )?ih?9;

Meredith, the former * Mercerberg
academy boy, and Is looked on in the
east as Meredith's most dangerous'rival)
for the quarter and ; the half. 7His per
formance ; yesterday; now stamps : him : as!
the most wonderful sprinter the world
has ever? seen, and it may be that with
proper care he will turn out to be th*
freak who will run the century; in .; 9
secondsfflat and 7 the 220? yards in 20

ible, but " the day i; is ;: coming ..? when A a
