8 SPORT The captains of wheeling clubs have hit upon a very successful way of getting a good crowd of members to join in Sunday road runs to the country. All that is necessary to induce a full attendance is for the captain to shout on the evening before starting at a club-meeting, "Fresh mown hay, fresh buttermilk, fresh eggs, fresh air and the society of ladies — well, who will join the run to-morrow?" and all Ehout, "Everybody." The gun and rifle clubs are having lots of sport at the traps and ranges. Coursing is in full blast. Bowing has received a great impetus. The anglers are looking anxiously forward to the opening of the lakes. The yachtsmen are having splendid weather for sailing and the tennis-players are showing some signs of life. THE WHEELMEN. C. S.

A.— Joint run of Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose cycling annexes to Niles Canyon to-night. Wheelmen look forward with considerable pleasure to the probability of some good racing and a pleasant entertainment at Santa Cruz next week, in conjunction with the water carnival and Venetian festival to be held there. The races will be run on Saturday, June 15, at 2 o'clock p. m., on a three-lap track in Vue de l'Eau Athletic Park, which has just been completed. The track was built about three years ago, but was never used, and so was allowed to go to ruin; but although the surface work had to be done over again, the foundation was very good to work upon. It has been remodeled after the track at San Jose, except that the surface is loam instead of cement, and is thirty feet wide at the tape and twenty on the backstretch. The grounds are easy of access, being on the line of an electric railroad, and upon a popular drive, the Cliff road, about a mile and a quarter from the center of town. Comfortable training quarters and dressing-rooms will be provided for all the racers. The races are under the auspices of the Pilot Wheelmen of Santa Cruz, and as all the best ridt r< from this part of the State ■will compete, tney should be very interesting. The events and prizes are as follows : One mile novice — Gold medal; silver medal. One mile scratch, class A — Gold watch, value $50; suit of clothes, $35; easy chair, $20. Two-mile handicap, class A -"-Diamond locket, value $50; overcoat. $30; onyx clock, $20. Two-mile handicap, class B— Unset diamond, value $125; gold watch, $50; shotgun, $'25. Half-mile scratch, class B — Diamond stud, value $75; banjo, $40; banquet lamp, $25. It will be seen that the prizes are very liberal, and the races well divided as to distances and classes. Entries for handicap events close June 8, and for scratch events June 10, with the last delivery of mail on those dates, and should be "addressed to L. E. W. Pioda, secretary cycling committee, Santa Cruz, accompanied by the customary entrance fee of 50 cents for such event. The Pilot Wheelmen, an adjunct of the swell Pilot Club of Santa Cruz, are comparatively new in the cycling world, but have taken hold of this their initial race with a vim that promises good results. In their preparations the knowledge of an experienoed hand is discernible, they having been directed by Ralph M. Thompson, now a resident of Santa Cruz, who was at one time president of the Bay City Wheelnien and chief consul of the California division, League of American Wheelmen. What he doesn't know about wheeling and race meets is haraiy worth the learning, and he is ably assisted by his business partner, C. W. Hammer, also an old-time San Francisco wheelman. The present officers of the Pilot Wheelmen are: F. W. Swanton, president; L. E. W. Pioda, vice-president; H. S. Wanzer, secretary; Ralph If. Thomson, captain; Reuben H. Pringle, first lieutenant; L. Talbot Ware, second lieutenant; Frank Armstrong, bugler; C. E. Lane, standardbearer. On the last day of the carnival, Saturday, June 15, there will be a competitive parade of all the prominent wheeling clubs for a valuable trophy. The captains of the various clubs around the bay have announced that they intend calling club runs with Santa Cruz as the objective point on Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15. The Olympic Club Wheelmen will start Friday night and ride to San Jose and ride over the mountains early the next mornine The Garden City Cyclers will go over Friday night and also the Reliance Club Wheelmen of Oakland. The Acmes and Bay Citys are talking of going down together on a joint run, their ride to Camp Taylor last Sunday having proved so enjoyable. A proposition is also on foot for all the San Francisco and Oakland wheelmen to return together Sunday night by steamer. There will be no rest for the weary on that steamer, surely, if they do. Altogether the prospect is bright lor a most enjoyable three days' outing for all the cyclists who journey to the City of the Cross the latter part of next week, and all who can possibly get away will avail themselves of the opportunity to have a jolly time and see some good racing. Last Saturday afternoon a number of the members of the new bicycle club, the National Road Club, composed of cyclists of the C and G companies of the First Regiment, K. G. C, took a run down to San Jose, starting from Pruitvale. It was a pleasure outing and not a test for determining the speed of the members, so they took their " time and reached the Garden City in three hours and a half. On the following day they took a spin to Glenwood, in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and on Sunday evening returned to the City. The new club is captained by J. F. Norton. Captain Kitchen will lead the Acme Club Wheelmen on a run to Novato tomorrow morning. Tony Delmas, whose picture is presented herewith, is one of the fastest class B handicap riders of the Garden City Cyclers. He is young, stockily built and has great endurance, and fights his races out until the very last. His best recent performance was in winning the two-mile handicap class B race at the meet of tbe San Jose Road Club, in which were entered such prominent riders as Wells, Foster, Burke, Castleman, Long, dishing, J. C. and H. C. Smith. He received ISO yards handicap and won his heat in 5:02 2-5 and the final in 4:45 4-5. With another year's experience he will rank with the best of them. T. S. Hall, A. J. Menne, A. Lundherg, G. P. Caldwell, E. S. Battles and P. L. Day, the Bay City "Wheelmen's "kindergarten," will start to-morrow for a two weeks' wheeling and fishing trip in the vicinity of La Honda and Pescadero. The Golden Gate Cycling Club will hold a five-mile handicap road race over the San Mateo course on Sunday, J une 30. The TONY DELMAS, THE PRIDE OF THE GARDEN CITY CYCLERS. race is for club members only. There will be three prizes, the first being a high-grade bicycle valued at $105, the second a $40 suit of clothes and the third a club uniform, value $30. Certainly such trophies are well worth contesting for. Some of the probable starters are Captain Quadt, Lieutenant Siebe and Messrs. Stiegeler, Maas, Fenstermacher, Schwartz, Holler and Dwyer. These men are already actively training for the event. Captain Quadt has called a run of the Golden Gate Club for to-morrow to San Mateo and return, starting at 8 a. m. from the clubrooms, 228 Thirteenth street. Lieutenant Siebe of this club rode to Santa Cruz last Wednesday, returning Thursday, making 160 miles in two days. Captain Charles Etting will lead the members of the Pacific Cycling Club on a run to Halfmoon Bay and return to-day and to-morrow. The riders will take the 3:30 train this afternoon to San Mateo, and wheel from there to their destination, returning Sunday. The Outing Road Club will have a run to-morrow from Sausalito to San Rafael, leaving on the 9a. m. ferry. I should advise them to take the new grade over Corte Madera Hill. It is in much better condition, and the ascent and descent are much more gradual than the old road. Turn to the left about 300 yards north of Alto station instead of to the right, as formerly. Nearly the entire trip will be found ridable by going this way. George Stamper has been elected president of the Outing Club, vice C. Shilling, resigned. Mr. Stamper is an old-time and popular wheelman, having been prominent in the Bay City Club in the palmy days of the "ordinary." He will make for the club a splendid executive officer. Bert Mayer of the Outings leaves to-day for the Blue Lakes, there to join Captain Davis, and together they will tour that region awheel. Sol Peiser of the same club made a century last Sunday. The Alpha Cycling Club is the name of a ladies' wheeling organization recently formed in the Mission, with the following officers: Mrs. Keller, president; Miss May Wynne, vice-president; Miss McCarthy, secretary ; Miss Annie Pendergast, treasurer; Miss Vermeil, sergeant-at-arms; Mrs. H. F.Wynne, captain; Mrs. Smith, first lieutenant; Mrs. Yocum, second lieutenant. The club has adopted as its emblem the Greek letter "G, and starts off with a membership of twenty-two. Meetings are held each Wednesday evening at the rooms of the California Cycling Club, through the courtesy of that organization. This morning at 8 o'clock the club will have a run to the park and Cliff House, and to-morrow at the same hour another to the Presidio. The members of the Liberty Cycling Club will enjoy a run to the Cliff and Presidio to-morrow morning. Only seven members completed the century run last Sunday, owing to breakdowns en route. Messrs. S. Mitchell, J. Thompson and F. Gherini have been elected members of the Liberty Club, bringing the roll up to thirty-nine, with several more to be voted for. The San Francisco Road Club will have a pleasant run to San Jose to-night by moonlight. Captain L. L.Korn requests the members to assemble ;at Seventh and Market streets to-night atjll o'clock sharp. An easy pace will be set, and the ride should Drove very enjoyable. An institution calling itself a bicycle stable ha 9 recently been started downtown for the storing of wheels during the daytime for those who are desirous of riding to work and have no place to keep their mounts. The success of such a venture here is problematical. The California Cycling Club will hold the final of three one-mile handicap club races to-morrow morning at the Central Park track at 9:30 o'clock. Those who have qualified in the previous races for this final, and their handicaps are: J. W. Harvey, scratch ; F. Struven 80 yards, A. Theisen 100, W. Sternberg 135, T. Wall 15\ C. Birdsall 160. After the race Captain Burk has called a run over the San Mateo five-mile course, returning via the Spring Valley lakes, a very pretty ride. On June 23 the club will hold a road race over this course for members only ; entries must be sent to Captain Burk by June 11. The annual joint run of the California Associated Cycling Clubs will be held on THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1895. Sunday, June 23, to Nile 3 Canyon, and will be participated in by every club belonging to the association. This should make a turnout of several hundred wheelmen. The two previous runs of this nature were very successful, and the committee having this one in charge will endeavor to make it eclipse its predecessors. The cyclers of the Young Men's Christian Association from this City, Oakland and San Jose will assemble to-night at Niles Canyon, where a large bonfire will be built and the riders treated to a sort of barbecue by the ladies of the association residing in Alameda County. Unattached wheelmen are cordially invited to join in the feast, and should arrange to be at Niles by 8:30 p. m. Oscar Osen of San Jose, recently declared a professional by the racing board, will ride against two iast horses — Laura M aad Ottinger — to-morrow morning at Agricultural Park, San Jose. The Garden City Cyclers of San Jose will hold a club run to-morrow., under Captain Delmas, to the Mountain Home, on the Llagas, where a picnic 'unch will be served. The following Saturday they will ride to Santa Cruz to attend the races there. The Alameda Cyclers will have a run tomorrow to Mill Valley under their captain. W. Henshaw Stinson and James Coffroth of the^Olympic Club Wheelmen will start to-aay"on a tour to Los Angeles via the coast. They will each carry about thirty pounds/of baggage. From here to San Jose they will be paced by H. W. Spalding this afternoon. They will then fall into the hands of Joseph B. Carey, cycliug editor of the Mercury, who calculates they shall reach Gilroy the same night. The Tribune Cyclers of Gilroy will take them in hand Sunday and intend to ride with them to Paso Robles. At Santa Barbara they will stop one day and three days at Los Angeles. They are both pood fellows and I hope our southern brethren will treat them cordially. L. E. Hickok, well known in the cycle trade of Los Angeles, is in the says none of the dealers there can get sufficient wheels to supply their orders. The racers there are all training for the big meet on July 4. There will be an entertainment and evening at home at the parlors of the Imperial Cycling Club Thursday evening, June 13, for members only. A committee is also arranging for an entertainment at a local hall in the near future. J. J. McDonald has resigned from the directorate of the Imperials and E. W. Adams has been elected to the vacancy. The club will run some handicap races at the Central Park track to-morrow morning to bring out new racing talent. The events will be a halfmile scratch, half-mile handicap and onemile handicap. F. M. Byrne of the Imperials won the half-mile scratch race at the Portland meet Wednesday and W- C. Howe of the same club came second in the one-mile scratch. The members of the Royal Cycling Club will enjoy a "blind" run to-morrow under Lieutenant Sternberg. They were all out on a moonlight run to the beach last Wednesday evening. The club has moved into its new quarters, and is progressing finely. Charles S. Wells, the crack racer of the Bay City Wheelmen, will attempt to lower the world's five-mile road record of 11:19, over the San Mateq course. He will be paced by some of his fellow-members on tandems, Harry Terri 11, E. Languetin, S. B. Vincent, T. A. Griffiths, A. J. Menne and T. S. Hall assisting in this regard. The necessary complement of timers and judges will be on hand to vouch for the trial, should it be made in record time. He will start about 2 p. m.. and Captain Dodge has announced a club run to witness the event. Wells is one of the fastest riders on the coast, and many think he can do the trick. Spalding. WITH THE ANGLERS. Why San Andreas Lake Will Remain Closed Until July. The officers of the Spring Valley Water Company, who have the giving of invitations to anglers to fish on the company's lakes, have finally concluded not to open the San Andreas Lake until July 1. This change was recently made at the suggestion of one of the Fish Commissioners who is of the opinion that those men who have made the San Andreas Lake their principal headquarters in latter years have no respect for the fish laws and would, if allowed to angle, catch black bass before July 1, on which day the season for black bass fishing will open. It is too bad that any member of the Fish Commission would or should entertain any such opinion of the anglers who have enjoyed many pleasant days on the lake in question, and it goes without saying that as a body the anglers who have had the good fortune to receive invitations from the water company to angle on its preserve are gentlemen who have respected the rules of the company and the game and fish laws as well. As to black bass it is a well-known fact that during the time the lake was open to anglers last season there were not over thirty bass caught, notwithstanding that all kinds and manners of lines were employed for their capture by the most skillful of fishermen. Now, then, as to the trout. Experience must certainly convince the directors of the company that in the months of July and August the trout are soft and flabby, because of the warmth of the water, and consequently they cannot be expected to make as game a fight as in May and June, when the water is cool and of the temperature suitable to trout. The decrease in the numbers of bass of San Andreas Lake is due to a disease which they contracted from feeding ufioa the ijttie sticklebacks. About two years ago the latter were dying by thousands, and the banks of the lake were strewn with them. On examination it was discovered that the little fishes were suffering from the attacks of a tapeworm, which the ba3S eventually contracted, and there is no doubt that this same worm has been the means of thinning the lake of its choicest fish— the black bass. If the intelligent Fish Commissioner, who was of the opinion that the decimation of the bass of San Andreas Lake had been caused by anglers, would consult some of the experienced fishermen on the matter he would be enlightened on a subject that will prove of interest to him and to the scientists of the coast. The bass of Crystal Spring Lake exist on the gold fish which were planted there several years ago and consequently they have flourfshed and grown fat and lazy. Some of the gold fish of Crystal Lake are now aa large as a goodsized trout. The anglers of this City, who are many, would be better pleased if the Fish Commissioners gave more attention to the stocking of coast streams which have almost run barren of fish, and it is but natural that the lovers of a grand sport would look anxiously toward the opening of the picturesque San Andreas Lake when all other angling places are— in the language of those who missed being born with the proverbial silver spoon in their mouthplayed out. The Supervisors have appointed a man named Mogan a game warden. Several prominent sportsmen and anglers of this City have been asked if they knew the recently appointed Warden, but a negative answer was always given. The only man who does know anything concerning Mogan as a sportsman is Supervisor King, who at one time owned some sporting dogs. King was never accused of having killed a quail or a crow on the wing, but he has been seen missing as big an object as a ferry-boat on several occasions. Mogan is now under the wing of King, and that fact aione should satisfy sportsmen and anglers that the City is saved so far as the sporting end of it is concerned. Mogan is said to know something about steelheads and barnyard pheasants, and if there should be a more extended knowledge required of a man to properly fill the omce of Game Warden ol the City and County of San Francisco Supervisor "Joking^ 1 would be pleased to know. Fish Commissioner Emeric and some friends left yesterday for Monterey, where they will enjoy the salmon-fishing that is now to be had in that bay. Emeric has had a new sardine prepared especially for deep-water salmon-nshing, with which he expects to accomplish great things to-day. A gentleman who returned yesterday from Truckee states that the river is still very high, and that anglers who are figuring on a trip to that place should defer their outing until July at least, as the rishing on the Truckee will be very late this year. What iish have been taken so far were caught by those who used the worm or spoon. The report in a morning paper that rainbow trout of six pounds were caught is not true. The lish taken were Pyramid Lake trout, a slovenly fish that affords no sport to the angler and is worthless as a table fish. A recent letter from the McCloud River gives very flattering reports of the fishing that is now to be had there. The writer states, however, that anglers should wait about two weeks before making their appearance on that beautiful stream. James Watt astonisned the whippers of Paper-mill Creek last Saturday by exhibiting a beautiful rainbow troutof one pound, which he caught in a deep pool near Tocaloina. Mr. Watt just caught this trout purposely to convince the knowing ones that if large fish can be taken, he can accomplish the trick when others fail. A consignment of large-mouth black bass will arrive in a few days from the East. This grand fish will be placed in Russian River and other waters adjacent to San Francisco. Fish Commissioner H. Emeric states positively that all of the principal rivers and streams within easy reach of this City will be stocked with brown trout next year. Mr. Emeric is of the opinion that the stocking of coast streams with the fry of steelneads or rainbows is so much time and labor lost, as the youngsters when they become seven or eight inches in length depart for the ocean. C. E. Cook of this City, A. A. Brown, N. W. McGary, Professor F. A. Ablaing, Louis Leiber and N. R. Carson of San Jose will leave to-day for an extended fishing trip, making their headquarters at Point Sur, Monterey County. Anglers desiring fiist-class trout-fishing at present should, by all means, repair to the Klamath River, which is within the immediate vicinity of the Klamath Hot Springs. Anglers who are now enjoying their recreation there are having grand sport with the rainbows — the native trout of the stream. In Shovel Creek, a stream which empties into the Klamath River near the springs, excellent sport is had catching New Hampshire trout, a splendid fish which has grown in size from fingerlings to one pound in weight. It will be remembered by anglers who fished the Klamath three years ago that the Fish Commissioners planted a large number of Eastern trout fry in Shovel Creek. The spotted beauties are now affording good sport. Governor Budd and nephew, both of wnoni are ardent sportsmen, are at the present time havinc excellent fishing in the Klamath and Shovel Creek. THE GUN. Formation of an Inanimate-Target Association — Notes. Trap shooting, so called, is gaining in popularity. Each Saturday and Sunday clubs organized for this particular branch of sport meet at their respective shootinggrounds and enjoy many hours of sport, either in grassing live birds or smashing inanimate targets. To-day the Alameda County Gun Club will hold a live-pigeon shoot at the Oakland track, and to-morrow the shooting contests announced are : Empire Gun Club, at Alameda Point; Nimrod Gun Club, at Bay View, and Olympic Gun Club, at Oakland track. On Wednesday the Country Club will shoot pigeons at Oakland track. On the 15th the San Francisco Gun Club will shoot at birds at Oakland track, and on the 16th the Recreation Gun Club will burn powder at the same place. As inanimate-target shooting is fast taking the place of "tame"-pigeon shooting, the following letter addressed to the Gun Clubs' ; and Sportsmen's associations of this City and State by the secretary of the Olympic Gun Club with the view of forming a California inanimate-target association is self-explanatory: The Olympic Gun Club of San Francisco by" these presents sends greeting and submits to your attention, us sportsmen and lovers of the gun, a plan to advance the sport of inanimatetarget shooting in California. ! The devotion of your club to this form of sport is well known, and the Olympic Gun Club solicits your co-operation in an effort to organize an association which shall include all the inanimate-target clubs in San Francisco and throughout the State. . ■ ■ The proposed association would be modeled after the style of similar associations in the East, and it could be known as the California Inanimate-Target Association or by some other name equally comprehensive. - v The plan in view would make the proposed association the official head of inanimate-target shooting in this State. : Each affiliated ; ciub would have representation by delegates to the board of governors or such other governing body as might be agreed upon.- v Human experience in many fields has proved the truth oi the old saying, "In union there is strength." This time-tried adage it is now desired to apply to trap-shooting, to the end that » c *P°fJ mft J be advanced and, opportunity afforded for the development of the novice and the bringing out of recruits to swell the ranks of target-shooters, who now lack in strength and . opportunity for sport only for want of proper organization. ;,, In this circular letter, the Olympic Club submits to your consideration only the bare outline of a proposed plan of -. organization. Your co-operation is asked with other clubs to supply the details and to complete such an organizasired aS y accomplish ■ the results de- The cpst of membership to the various clubs would be comparatively small. A membership fee | need .be exacted only in such amount as would supply moneys sufficient to carry out the association's most important object. This object would ■ be to . hold at least once during each . trap season a • one ,or two days' tournameat, at wbicli there would be individual aud team shooting for valuable prizes, and, perhaps, competition for medals emblematic of the team and individual championship of the State for one year. The plan suggested is, we think, one which will commend itself to the approval of every sportsman, and especially to that fast-growing army of gun lovers who enjoy the sport of shooting at the traps. Prompt action is necessary in order that an association may be formed and arrangements made for the holding of an initial tournament during the present season. In order that the matter may be fully discussed it has been determined to call a meeting, at which, if deemed advisable, the California Inanimate Target Association may receive an official start. Such a meeting will be held in the rooms of the Olympic Gun Club, Olympic Club building, on June 8, 1895, at 8 o'clock p. m., and your club is asked to be represented by three delegates authorized to speak in your behalf and to take such formal action as they may deem proper. A similar invitation has been sent to all the known gun clubs in the State, so that we have every reason to expect a large and representative gathering. Should your club from any cause be unable to send three delegates try to have at least one representative present. If even that should be impossible a letter stating the. attitude and position of your club in the matter will be thankfully received. If the gun clubs will thus unite for the good of our common cause there can be no doubt as to the complete success of their efforts. The formation of such an association as proposed would mark the dawn of a new era in the history of inanimatetarget shooting in California. "Without boasting it may be said that with such union of strength and purpose our annual tournaments could be made the largest and most suocessiul events of the kina in the entire West. We have shooting material in abundance and a^l it needs is development. Gun men generylly will count upon your hearty aid and co-operation in this movement for the common good. Respectfully, The Olympic Gun Club. Stanley G. Scovern, Secretary. GAME AND FISH LAWS. A Very Useful Reference for Sports- men and Anglers.

The Imperial Athletic Club of Colma almost gave up the idea of giving an exhibition of fisticuffs this month as good material was hard to find. At the last moment, however, when Del Hawkins had concluded unwisely that the club could not get along without him as a star performer, Danny Mahoney put in an unexpected appearance and inquired of Matchmaker Frank Allen if there was any chance of an engagement. Allen informed Mahoney that if he considered himself a fitting mark to go up against Anthony, the champion bantam of Australia, the club would probably take the matter under consideration. Mahoney was not in the least perturbed or alarmed when he heard of Anthony, and quickly informed Allen that he believed himself as good if not a better man than the Australian, and would meet him provided the latter would agree to weigh in at the ringside at 114 pounds. Mahoney has time and again demonstrated his ability to hold his own, that is from a scientific point of view, against the cleverest man of the bantam class. Allen was aware of this, but he was doubtful if Mahoney of to-day was the Mahoney of four years ago. The little local bantam was given a tryout with a clever feather-weight, and he not only astonished Allen, but also the man he boxed against. Mahoney had the better of his opponent from start to finish in hitting, stopping and general ring tactics. The trial bout was quite satisfactory, and as a result Mahoney was matched against Anthony, and the contest, limited to twenty rounds, will be decided in the Imperial Club of Colma on the evening of the2Sthinst. The bantams will go into training immediately, and the patrons of the fistic sport who are fond of seeing good hard punching by clever men will not be disappointed in this race between two wellurillea boxers. Anthony is probably more aggressive in his style of righting, but Mahoney is full of tricks and will puzzle the Australian i:» more ways tnan one when the time comes for hot exchanges. The preliminaries to the event of the evening will afford all who like to see hard and rough punching a good run for their money. A NEW WHIST CLUB. It Will Be Organized by and Com- posed of Amateurs Only. It will be remembered by whist-players that some trouble arose in the San Francisco Whist Club a few weeks ago among the members who had strenuously opposed the introduction of gambling. The upshot was that those members who played solely for amusement resigned from the club, and, as will be seen by the following communication, copies of which have been mailed to prominent whist-players, a new club will soon soring into existence, which will be an amateur club in the strict sense of the word. The card reads : We take pleasure In informing you that we are perfecting arrangements for the formation of a new whist club in this City, and that by the time the summer vacation is ended these plans will be completed ; rooms will be selected and fitted out in the most modern whist fashion. The object of this club is to furnish a headquarters for whist-players, and the enjoyment of the game of whist pure and simple, where the game will never be played for money, but strictly in accordance with the constitution and government of the American Whist League. It is also formed for the purpose of advancing the knowledge of those who are willing to study a little into the hidden mysteries and intricacies of the advanced scientific game of whist This feature is, or will be, a decided innovation in San Francisco, and will soon be fully appreciated by those who wish to become students of this great game. In cour«e of time a circular will be sent you stating in detail why San Francisco needs and should have a whist club formed on these lines, and the benefit to be derived from active connection with the same. Should it be your desire to become a charter member of such an organization, please hand your name and address to any member of the subjoined committee: P.J. Tormey, 220 Sutter sweet; Abbie E. Krebs, 911 Sutter street; R. B. Calley, 55 Stevenson street; A. H. Martin, 718 Market street. : , Coursing at Ocean View.

STOCKTON, Cal., June 7.— Great preparations are being made here for a field day and regatta on the Fourth of July. The Stockton Athletic Association has taken charge of this and intends to make it one of the great athletic events of the year. It has been arranged to have a junior barge race, a senior barge race, a wherry race, all for amateurs, and one professional race in singles. The course for the barge races will be two miles with a turn, ana the oarsmen can always count on smooth water in the channel, which is by far the best course in the State. Crews from the South End, Ariel, Dolphin, Pioneer, Olympic and Acme clubs and from St. Mary's College will be invited. The track at Goodwater Grove is being put in condition for the field-day sports". The track is half a mile around, and is one of the best bicycle-tracks in the State. It was selected by Bliss, Dirnberger, Wells, Foster and Ziegler last year. The Reliance, Olympic and Acme Athletic clubs and the Stanford and University of California athletes have been invited to send teams to enter in the track events. These will consist of 100 and 220 yard dashes, 120----yard hurdle race, 440-yard dash, putting PERCENTAGE §PERCENTAGE PHARMACY, 953 MARKET ST., Bet.
