8 GLIMPSES OF THE PRINCIPAL SPORTING EVENTS OF THE WEEK. THE SPORTING WORLD. A Week's Record of Happenings on Field, Stream and Track. An excellent programme of bicycle races has been arranged by tbe management of the Velodrome track for this afternoon. The sport will doubtless attract a large gathering. The Pacific Coast Field Trial Club will hold its annual meeting near Bakersfield next month and tbe entries for the all-age stake will positively close on Monday. Sportsmen report good duck-shooting in the Suisun marshes and in the tuies near Antioch. Tbe winter's run of steelheads into the fresh-water streams has arrived and some nice fish were caught last Sunday. Lovers of coursing will witness some good racing to-morrow at Ingles ide Park. Rifle-shooters, handball players and tennis experts are enjoying good sport. THE WHEELMEN. Velodrome Meet This Afternoon and Associated Clubs To-NlgCQt. Cyclers and those interested in tne sport have two things in which they will take particular interest to-day. , One is the race meet to be held at the Velodrome track in the afternoon and the other is the annual meeting and election of officers of the California Associated Cycling Clubs in the evening. The race meet programme is by far the A. W. Wche (San Francisco Road Club), Candidate for President Associated Cycling Clubs. [From a photograph by the Elite.] best arranged of the series recently held, and there are more entries and a better class of performers. Tbe arrival of Mc- Farland and Stevens during the week must stimulate the California professionals to renewed efforts, for they will have to ride to win out from either of these two "pros." Wilber Knapp also got in from Chicago and will act as announcer, at which he is without a peer, unless it be George Dixon. As Knapp laughingly said one day, "They may tie me, but they can't beat me," and so it is. The races this afternoon will commence promptly at 2 o'clock. Seats should be secured in advance, and can be had at Sherman & Clay's. There will be a large attendance, judging by the advance sale. It was rumored at the track yesterday that "Bob" Ternll would forfeit tbe shield rac° to W. £. Beckar, wno challenged him, and go in for the professional events. This iaonly another evidence of the worthy Terriil's foresiphtedness. If tie wins the match race he only wins $20. In the professional race he has a cbance of winning $50. The shield event might be made more interesting if the management made its possession a little more valuable. ' The Associated Clubs' meeting will be held at tbe rooms of the San Francisco Road Club, 503 Golden Gate avenue, at 8 o'clock p. m. The clubs will be represented as follows: Waverly Bicycle Club— S. W. Elston, P. Allan Joy, Fred Slebe. Golden Gate Cycling Club— Al Lewis, George Payton, W. J. Black. California Cycling Club— ft. S Duncan, W. O.Johnson, C. J. Vermeil. Pathfinder Bicycle Club- Harry Goodmi.n, T. W. Flanagan, James Clunan. Imperial Cycling Club— John S. Eagan, C. H. Trolllet, T. J. Winslow. Acme Club— A. P. Swain, George W. Humphrey, R. E. Revalk, Sitn Francisco Road Club— A. W. Wehe, W. I. Pixley, H. B. Raymond. Capital City Wheelmen—F. T. Dwyer, J. F. McDonald, Robert Smith. Santa Rosa Wheelmen— L. W. Burns G. Schelling, H. Kirsch. Aiameda Cyclers— V. A. Dodd, J. G. Stubbs, J. A. Carpenter. Garden City Cyclers — F. L. Seyboldt, D. L. Conklinj, Joseph A. Deslmone. Reliance Club— W. K. (iritlith, C. S. Myrick. M. jßllett. Olympic Club Wheelmen — Charles. Albert Adams, George IJ. Stratton, Lewis C. Hunter. Bay City Wheelmen— R. M. Welch, J. F. Hancock, San lord Plummer. The following clubs belonging to the associction have not .pent in the names of their delegates, and unless tbe names are sent to tbe secretary to-day they will not be entitled to vote: Crescent Athletic Club of Berkeley, Crescent Road Club, Call Bicycle Club, Diamond Cyclers, East Oakland Wheelmen, Liberty Cycling Club, Mountain View Cyciers, Olympic Cyclers and Triangle Wheelmen. Of these the two Crescent clubs are said to be out of existence, and the Call, Diamond and Triangle Wheelmen will probably withdraw lrom the association as its purposes does not interest them. All delegates must bring credentials of their appointment from tne secretaries of their respective clubs to the meeting tonight toentitle them to a seat. Chairman of deletions must come prepared to pay tli<* annual dues also. There is going to be a big contest over the presidency between A.^P. Swain of the Acme Club Wheelmen of Oakland and A. W. Webe of the San Francisco Road Club, but a careful canvass of the delegates made yesterday gives Swain a majority of ten votes to a certainty and possibly more. His long association with the sport has made him scores of friends, particularly as such services as he has rendered iv different official capacities have been rendered with peculiar cleverness and discretion. As a member of the last road-racing committee he managed the big twenty-mile road race in July, and it passed off without a hitch. This was the more remarkable because there had never been a similar event held here before, and he had no precedent to go by. Mr. Swain promises, if elected, to appoint a San Francisco man as chairman of the road-racing committee, and that has brought him lots of votes from this side. Mr. Wehe has been connected with the sport for a considerable time, but is not well known outside of his own club, whose support has been remarkably strong during his canvass. Many think he should not have aspired higher than the first vice-presidency this year, particularly when he had a man like Swain to run against, and even now he may be induced to accept that nomination instead. In case of bis election tbe road-racing chairmanship would probably go to W. I. Pixley of the Road Club. The election will be well contested, however, and to-night's meeting full of incidents. Warm but loose-iitting clothing is absolutely necessary to comfort in coidweather riding. Most wheelmen and wheelwomen find it a difficult matter to keep tbe hands and feet warm in the face of a cold wind. Bicycle gauntlets may be all right in their way, but a pair of heavy woolen gloves which will reach well up the wrists seems better. A silk or cotton stocking under the regular golf hose, with a piece of paper fitted between tbe two stockings, is guaranteed to keep out the cold in the most bitter weather. A sheet of newspaper fitted between tbe undershirt and sweater or outing shirt will also protect the chest completely. The League of American Wheelmen has passed tbe 70,000 mark in membership, now numbering 70,363. North California has 1639, Soutn California 460 and Oregon about as many. The growth of the latter division has been phenomenal. New York has '20,468. The annual meeting of the North California Division will be held next Saturday night, and Secretary-Treasurer Scovern has sent out the following notice to the board of officers: San Francisco, Dec. 2, 1896. Dear Sir: The annual meeting of the board of officers of the North California Division, League of American Wheelmen, will be veld in the rooms of the Bay City Wheelman. 441 Golden Gate avenue, San Francisco, on Saturday evening, December 12, 1896, at 8 o'clock. Your attendance is respectfully requested. Fraternally, Stanley G. Scovern. Secretary-Treasurer. To which Chief Consul Kerrigan has added the following request to committee chairmen : I would respectfully call your attention to A* P. Swain (Acme Club), Candidate for President ' Associated Cycling Qubs. [From a photograph by BushneU.] article 7, to be found on page 83 in Hand Book recently sent you oj the Division's By- Laws, setting forth the need of each chairman of committee Rending in a written report of work accomplished daring the past year. Kindly attend to it at once, so that it can be read at the nbove meeting. Fraternally, Frank H. Kerrigan, Chief Consul. R. C. Lennie has postponed for one week tbe "ordinary" run through tne park which he had arranged for to-morrow. The additional time is required to get together enough of the old style of wheels to make a respectable showing. The Olympic wheelmen and Reliance wheelmen will have a joint run through the park to-morrow. The Olympics will meet the Oakland boys at the ferry at 10:45 a.m. In the afternoon tliey will go to the Velodrome track and watch the training. The Olympic's next meeting will be on Tuesday evening, December 8. At Menlo Park to-morrow there wiii be several road races, open to all amateurs, and a' number of the riders from San Jose and this City will compete. The events will be a baif-mile scratch, one-mile handicap and five-mile handicap. There will also be a match race at one-qnarter mile between A. B. Johnson of Redwood City and Rod Taylor of Menlo Park, aspirants for tbe championship of San Mnteo County. There is a great deal of local interest over the race, and opinion is about divided. The Olympic Club Wneelinen will banquet Floyd A. Met" arland next Monday THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1896. evening. He h^s worn their colors throughout his recent Eastern tour and has many a time carried the winged O to the .front. W. D. Howe, John D. McGilvray Jr., W. J. Caldwell and F. R. Haley joined the Bay City Wheelmen this week. Another meet will be held at the Velodrome a week lrom to-day. Tbe programme includes a one-miie handicap (amateur), one-mile handicap (professional) and a one-third mile scratch (professional), besides tbe usual record trials. Entries close Monday, December 7, at 6 p. m. sharp. Captain Lewis will take the San Francisco Road Club members to Menlo Park to-morrow to witness the road races there. The start will be from tbe club at 8:30 a. m. The club's party will be held next Thursday evening at Union-square Hall. C. E. Unf red .has been elected secretary of the Golden Gate Cycling Club to fill the vacancy caused by tbe death of P. J. Hyde. The Imperial Cycling Club will have a members' meeting next Monday night, when an election will be held to fill a vacancy in the board ot directors. The directors nave decided to build a gymnasium in the rear of the clubrooms on Van Ness avenue. There will be a blind run leaving the rooms to-morrow at 1 o'clock led by Captain Trolliet. Spaldinq. GUN AND GAME. Good Snlpe-Shootinsr In the Country Club— bucking at Antioch. It is said that duck-shooting in the Sonoma marshes has been very poor this season and the sportsmen who frequent those marshes attribute their poor luck to the great amount of pbooting that has been done this year at night by men who hunt for the market. As there are thousands of wild decks in San Pablo Bay at present tbe outlook for some good sport in tbe near future is promising. A good stiff blow from the west will send the biros into tbe marshes, but a heavy rainstorm will result in destroying the shooting near tbe bay, as the ducks will leave for the southern country. The secretary of the San Joaqum Valley Agricultural Association writes that he has received the medals and diplomas won at the late Stockton bench sliow and is now prepared to distribute them. George Jackson bagged quite a number of mallard and teal a few days ago on Lake San Andreas, which sheet of water is the property of the Spring Valley Water Company. J. Wallace and Fred Greenlee enjoyed a good duck-shoot near Suisun last Monday. They positively state that the birds did not cost them any more than what they paid for ammunition and transportation. Sam Hughes, alias Silver-tongue Sam, and his English setter, Silver Plate 11, had a most enjoyable outing in the Country Club of Marin County last Sunday. Billy Kittle states that Hughes is "good" on quail, but a very rank shot on English snipe. The following letter has been received and speaks for itseli: Antioch, Cal., Dec. I.M Duck-shooting is first-class now and a good shot can secure a good bag of birds. J. L;m-mer, with shells loaded with "Gold Dust" powder by William Remfree of Antiucn, killed thirty-two mallards aud about twenty-eight blackjacks. Dick Brooks of San Francisco, an old-time sport whose eyesight Is either getting poor or his No. 10 gun growing old, got four ducks and a ducking. Mr. Lemmer claimed that the four ducks secured by Brooks weie cripples that he had knocked down himself. Mr. Brooks used to be a pretty fair duck shot, but, like Remfree, he is a good old "has been." Mr. Brooks is very indignant that he should be classified among the "has beens," and states that if Air. Remfree, who is the acknowledged champion "tincan" shooter of San Joaquin County, is anxious for a race on artificial birds or live birds, he will meet him at any time and place 1 he may suggest purposely to arrange a contest. Brooks states further that Mr. Remfree may use a 10-bore gun and that he will handle a pea-shooter, as that kind of gun will be large enough for him in a contest ot this kind. Phil Bekeart bageed a good mess of wild ducks last Sunday in Suisun marsh. Walter Burlineame and Jim Chesley returned from Suisun last Sunday with thirteen birds. Frank Vernon had an excellent Bnipe shoot on tne Country Club's marsh last Sunday. He reports birds as being very plentiful. Frank Dolliver says that the weather was so cold at Point Reyes last Sunday that his dog had much difficulty in retrieving birds he had Killed and which fell into the pond he was shooting over. "I never saw anything like it before," said Dolliver, without cracking a smile; "the ducks 1 killed froze stiff a second after they struck the water, and my dog 'Leatherhead' had to scrape the ice from off the birds' backs with his paws before he could get a hold on them. Why, in the early morning it was so cold that the shot froze into a solid mass after leaving the gun and some of the birds I killed were actually cut in two when they fell." THE ANGLERS. Arrival of the First Winter Run of Steelheads In the Creeks. The late rains have made glad the hearts of the midwinter anglers. Last Sunday some very nice steelheads were caught at Point Reyes, Larkspur and Bbellville. Hunter, Terry, Walker aud Harmon tried their luck in the tidewaters of Paper-mill Creek and all caught fish, with the exception of Walker, who scored a duck egg. The trout taken were small. McGreggor, Cooney and Hoffman fished tbe Tamalpais slough and had pretty good sport. Hoffman caught three, tbe smallest of which weighed one and a half pounds.. At Shellvile a number of small ten and twelve inch fish were caught. Mr. Morgan of Duncans Mills visited the City oh Thursday last and reports that the Russian River is now in splendid shape and that the local anglers are having good fun. John Gallagher, the champion salmon fisherman of Oakland, is now located at Duncans and is enjoying good sport. He sent a telegram to John Butler yesterday to journey to the happy fishing grounds as soon as possible with a keg of salmon "roll," as that was the only bait tne silversides would recognize. The next heavy rain will send the big fishes to therr spawning grounds. It is said that illegal fishing is practiced near the mouth of the Russian River. A Deputy Fish Commissioner will visit Duncans to-morrow. THE OARSMEN. Increased Activity in Rowingr Cir- cles After the Regatta. The Thanksgiving day regatta has created greater interest in rowing than has been displayed for many months. . The clubs are gaining in members, and there is every prospect of a marked revival in aquatics. Tbe Dolphins intend to have a crew entered in the junior and senior barge races at the next regatta. Captain Will Patch will take tbe following men out for a practice spin to-morrow. They are Al Rouard, Tom Kennedy and E. P. Sullivau, and they will be under tbe watchful eye of coach Adam Schuppert. Keenan is out three times a week in his boat and is keeping himself in condition for the next regatta. The Dolphins' committee on nomination will meet to-night to choose efficers for next year. The club will give a ladies' day social on January 10 that will surpass anything ever attempted by them in that line. It is rumored that Len Haussler has challenged McCausland to a mile and a half race for a medal. Haussler wants three weeks to train in and is trying to borrow Tom Keenan's boat. If the match is made a lively race is looked for. Mc- Causland is the present Pacific Coast champion. Tiie Alameda Boat Club met last week and elected the following officers: President, J. A. Samson ; vice-president, W. G. Hansen; secretary, W. B. Hinchman; treasurer, C. J. Lancaster; captain, A. Schumacher; lieutenant-captain, At well C. Webb. Tne club will give a ball early in January. The First Division of the Naval Reserve are dissatisfied with the outcome of the Thanksgiving day race, and nave challenged the victors to another race, which will take place in the near future. One of the morning pjpers accused Mr. Yale, the gentleman appointed to referee tbe races at the regatta, witb being at the football fame when he should have been at his post It is an unjust charge, as Mr. Yale was in the country until 4 o'clock that afternoon. A great many hard things have been said as to Chairman Pembroke's course in the last regatta. He has been charged with getting up tbe regatta for self-interests, and that the prizes awarded were purchased by him. It is an improper charge, as the medals were made by Mr. Rotnkopf. Mr. Pembroke expended a great deal of labor in trying to make the regatta a success, and in doing so neglected his own business to his own loss. His work was a labor of love, as he had the interests of rowing at heart, and not for a pecuniary gain. FIELD TRIALS. Young and O'd Dors That Will Race Near Bakersfield Next Month. The all-aged stake for the Pacific Coast field trials, which will be held near Bakersfield in the near future, closed a few days ago, but owing to a delay occasioned by some mistake on the part of some of the country sportsmen who failed to enter their charges at the proper time Secretary Kilgariff concluded not to give the names of the dogs now in his possession for publication until Monday, when the full list of entrants will appear in The Call. The Derby entry will be very large this year, but the same cannot be said for the old dogs. However, the ones that will compete belong to the aristocratic family of canines, and will doubtless distinguish themselves on the quail fields of Kern County when they are cast off to find game.

Sacramento Sporting Sens. SACRAMENTO, Cal., Dec. 3.— The coming contest between William Johnson of the Sacramento Athletic Club and Theodore Van Buskirk of the San Francisco OlymDic Club is the cenier of interest to the sport-lovers of this vicinity. The boxing match will be a tenround go, and will take place at the clubroom in this city on the 11th. Both men are hot favorites witb their respective clubs, and the boys iv this city will bank heavily on their favorite, who three years a go won the amateur chain i ionship ol the State by defeating the best men that could be brought out iv the Olympic Club tournament held in San Francisco. Johnson has done nothing in the boxing line since then, except to put out Australian Billy Smith, the doughty veteran of the ring, who Sharkey declares gave him the hardest battle of his life. Johnson will probably weigh in at 170 pounds. The local game markets are overflowing with game of all descriptions. Barney Keller has a record of 300 mallard, made in three days' shooting this week, and two other men brought in 150 pair ot birds in a day's shoot. Stewart Upson and Russ Flint are taking a week's outing among the quail in the vicinity of Pilot Hill and are having fine sport. Frank Newbert, Charles Demerit aud Harry Trumpler bagged twenty-four quail each during a day's outing this week. Good sport is being had at the different club preserves amonp the ducks and several excellent bags of snipe have been brought in lately. Everybody is "going daft" on coursing at the present time. William Hanlon, the wellknown grocery man, picked up what was supposed to be a scrub dog, and now claims to possess a world-beater. Charles K. Lipman has also become possessed of the popular craze. Next Sunday Hon. Judson Brusie will officiate at the park as slipper and H. H. Devine, secretary of the Coursing Park Association, as judge. There will be over forty entrants and some stiff purses offered. The High School elevens have been practicing on the, gridiron and are puttiug up some good football, with matches in the prospective. The baseball nines of the Sacramento Athletic Club are also practicing and playing good ball whenever the weather allows, and th« handball courts are kept Dusy. Rutherford. WAS NEARLY MOBBED. Joseph Doruato's Cruelty to a Horse Excites the Indignation of a Large Crowd. Joseph Dornato, a teamster, gave an exhibition of brutality yesterday afternoon at Turk and Taylor streets. A large crowd gathered in a few minutes and Donato came within an ace of being moDbed. Shortly after he was meditating in a cool corner of the City Prison, the picture of meekness; but then he was a prisoner, charged witb cruelty to animals, and hud neither horse nor whip to satisfy bis passion. The incident of Dornato's cruelty and the gathering ol the mob was related by Officer McMurrie of the Society for the Proventiqn of Cruelty to Animals. "I was in my office, which is near where the fellow was arrested," he said. "Suddenly several people burst into the room. They were greatly excited ana asked me to go with them to the corner of Turk and Taylor streets and arrest a man for cruelty. By the time 1 go: there the crowd was getting ready to mob Dornato. He h£d a horse and a heavy load of olive oil, which the horse was barely able to haul, and he raised weits on the animal's back, each one as thick as a mac' i linger. Bo I took him in custody." JACKSON'S DEFENSE. Three Witnesses Will Testify on Hia Behalf To-Day. In the trial of Arthur Jackson, charged with the murder of August Florentine, considerable time was taken up yesterday with a discussion between attorneys as to the introduction of certain testimony. Attorney Carroll Cook, representing the defense, drew Judge Belcher's attention to the fact that none of the witnesses introduced by the prosecution were in th« room at the time of tbe shooting of Florentine. He said -there was plenty of testimony from persons who were in the rooms bnck of the saloon when tbe tragedy occurred, but that none of the witnesses who saw the killing had been called by the State to tell what tney Knew of the occurrence. Deputy District Attorney Hosmer declined to call the persons suggested by Mr. Cook to the witness-stand. Mr. Cook stated that three men, namely Cornelius Hurley, Charles Leyden and William Troy were in the room when the pistol shot was fired, and saw all that took place; that at the preliminary examination these men testified that Jackson acted in self-defense. He thought the prosecution ought to bring forward all tbe testimony possible that is material to the case, whether favorable or unfavorable to the defendant. Mr. Hosmer said he was willing to have the tease go to the jury without calling the witnesses named by Mr. Cook, so they will be introduced by the defense at this morning's session of court. FAIR'S ESTATE. Interest on Bonds and Kenta Bring in Good Money. Messrs. Crothers, Angus and Goodfallow, special administrators of the estate of tbe late James G. Fair, have filed their semi-annual report with Judge Slack of the Superior Court. They have on hand a balance of- $481,356 68, after disbursing $129,466 14 for expenses of conducting the different properties belonging to the estate. The rent-roll amninis to $16000 a month. Last month $120,132 50 interest on railroad bonds was collected. The only profit credited to the Lick House property was $290 50 during the month of November. SMUGGLERS IN COURT, Alex Pontages and Sam Brown Before United State* Commissioner Heacocfc. Alex Pentages, a fisherman, and Samuel Brown, charged with having unstamped opium in their possession, appeared before United States Court Commissioner Heacock yesterday morning. Chief Customs Inspector Holmes testified that he arrested Brown and found 144 tins of the drug upon the person of the prisoner. George Peters, the proprietor of a eandwich-stand on the corner of Eddy and Mason streets, testified that about three weeks ago, on the corner of Fifth and Howard streets, Pentages agreed to sell him 11)0 pounds of opium. The drug was 10 be delivered by Brown at the corner of Twelfth and Mission streets. It was in that locality Brown was arrested by Holmes, who had been posted by Peters. It is thought by the customs officials that Peters is one of the gang, and exposed his pals, thinking to gain more by so doing. Pentages was arrested Thursday evening by Inspector Holmes in a saloon on Ellis street, having been decoyed there by a letter sent him by the clever officer. Tiie trial of the accused was set for next Friday. LABOR COUNCIL. Delegates Report Baainess Quiet— Hofieihner Hy land Cnder Fire. At tbe San Francisco Labor Council last night delegates reported business quiet, but with a prospect of labor interests brightening in the near future. The delegate representing the Coast Seamen's Union reported that there are now seventy vessels at anchor at the Oakland mole waiting for engagements. A complaint was preferred against Horseshoer Michael Hyland, whose shop is on Webb street, charging him with employing non-union men in his line of business. This grievance was referred to the executive committee for investigation, with instructions to the Horseshoers Union to have a representative present at the meeting of that committee to state the nature oi the complaint. In answer to a communication from Secretary Rosenberg of the council suggesting the appointment of a representative from tbe Labor Council on tbe charter committee of one hundred, Mayorelect Phelan has written his consent. Tbe law and legislative committee reported progress un the constitutional amendment intended to establish the referendum and initiative in this State. Brewery workmen reported progress in their fight for recognition of the union, and sent three delegates to the council. I The Cigar-makera' Union reported that none but union men are now employed. »—«» — «< — • Dimond Trust Litigation Ended. In Judge Seawell's court Thursday a decree was entered in regard to the W. H. Dimond trust fund that $3246 83 be paid to each of the following: Mrs. Kleanor Tobin, Mrs. May Tobin, Union Trust Company; that $6416 46 be retained by Trustees Horace G. Flatt and B. P. Oliver; that E. R. Dimond repay to said trustees $954 52. The litigation thereupon ended, all parties paying their owu costs. NEW TO-DAT. We kno*r that Cod-liver Oil is a fat-forming food because takers of it gain rap- idly in weight under its use and the whole body receives vital force. When prepared as in Scott*s Emulsion, it is quickly and easily changed into the tissues of the bocfy. As your docto«r would say, "it is easily assimilated." Perhaps you are suffering from fat starvation. You take fat enough with your food, but it either isn't the right kind, or it isn't digested, You need fat prepared for you, as in Scott's Emulsion. j FREE IBUTTOMS!

V There is one true specific for diseases arising from impure blood and a debili- tated nervous system, and that is Paine'a celery compound, so generally prescribed by physicians. It is probably the most remarkable remedy that the scientific re- search of this country has produced. Prof. Edward E. Phelps, M.D., LL.D., of Dartmouth College, first prescribed what is now known the world . over ;as Paine celery compound, a positive cure for dys- pepsia, biliousness, liver complaint, neu- ralgia, rheumatism, all nervous diseases and kidney troubles. For the latter Paine's celery compound toas succeeded again and again where everything else has failed. __ ' ■ m Is Yoor Body and Brain Fatigued? ARE YOU LACKING IN ENERGY, strength and vigor?
