most faithful crewiat practice so far con

Ormundy, No, 2; and Knight, at bow.
Both Bennett and Knight showed up well
In club races last season. Durham and
Ormundy are new men at the oar, but are
doing very good work In- the- waist of tha
boat,and each day's practice shows im
provement In their watermanship.
The second crew to appear is yet a dark
horse as to positions, but, with such men
- as Lamberson, Gloss, Mackle and, Peter

Captain Scott has several other crews on
the list. The new men are very shy at
first, and It requires some time to get
them out for dally practice. The senior
crew is faithful in its dally practice, and
shows much Improvement. Ball Is ma

probably remain in that position.
At a meeting of the board of directors
of tho club, held Wednesday afternoon, it
was decided to hold a "smoker" for the
members of the club on Saturday, April 21.
A committee was appointed to take the
matter In hand and provide entertainment,
The board also accepted an offer from
B. San Francisco firm to furnish the club
with . rowing uniform, embracing the
club colors, at a reasonable cost.
Manager F. Merrill, of the Portland
Jockey and Athletic Club, reports that
Jils amusement enterprise Is progressing
favorably, .and that the prospects of clean
racing this Summer In at least two meets
are bright. Mr. Merrill has secured a lease
of Irvlngton race track for a term ot three
years, and all that now prevents his be

formality of a meeting and the acquies

men are prominent in business circles, and
have encouraged Mr. Merrill to proceed.
so It will be a mere, matter of time until
work will begin in earnest.
"While regular race meets will be held,
Bpeeding by local horses will also be fos
tered in every way. The grand stand will
be renovated, a new roof and bookmakers'
room' being particularly needed. The sta
bles will receive a complete overhauling
nd the paddock will bo enlarged. A room
will be set aside for the storing of wheels
while the riders are enjoying tho sports.
The projected enterprise will encourage
bicycle racing, automobile and pacing ma
chine races and baseball. Its promoters
have In view the establishment of a park
for Summer outdoor sports. Horse-lovers
will doubtless gladly hall the advent of a
season of square racing in Portland.

from the Association rooms at 30:30 A. M-,

Old Story Revamped of John L,

about John L. Sullivan and his visit to
this state, with his company of fighters,
a decade ago, but it is. told so well, barr

In the fall of 1K0.' says the Tribune,
John L. Sullivan was touring the Far
"West with his "grand aggregation of
sports," taking on "Jelly guyi" as he
used to say. In the big cities, and giving
exhibitions in the smaller towns. When
John L. reached Portland. Or., the citi
zens of Astoria, 100 miles away at the
mouth of the Columbia River, determined
that the fighter should not go away from
the Coast before they got a chance to
"look him over."
Astoria is a prosperous town ot 19,000
people, and half of tbo population Is en

Ono of their number, Eugene Sylvester,

-He measured 6 feet 4 inches, weighed 234
pounds, and had a pair of hands like base

ADVICE. TO "WHEELWOME3.

Bicycling If Properly Indulged In,
an Excellent Exercise.
A prominent woman bycycllst, of several
years' experience, recently gave some ex
cellent advice concerning the use ot the
wheel by women. Speaking, of the selection
of a wheel, she said:
"Of course, it you aTo already the owner
of a bicycle, you possibly have not this to
worry about But even so. it would be
better perhaps it the bicycle you ride Is
built- on old lines, and Is heavy and cum
bersome; to procure a new; one. The first
thing to consider In the choosing of a new
wheel is. its weight, and, quite as Import
ant, how easily It runs. I have had ex
perience with many women who ignorant
ly plodded along on a, bicycle that over
taxed their strength, under-the impression,
that they were taking a beneficial form
of exercise. The woman who makes this
mistake is thrown into the breach between
the two radical opponents, strain and
Of Secondary Importance.
"Of course, you also want a strong,
handsome wheel; but these two points are
of secondary Importance, where the ques
tion is one of health and exercise.
"Do not attempt to rival the prowess ot
others who arc in a be.tf.er physical con
dition than yourself. Make your own pace
and make that pace a -comfortable Jog, If
you would get the best effects of cycling.
Never try to ride up tco -steep a hill.
Adopt the ankle motion; it is (he more
graceful and beneficial, end It takes away
the heavy thrust motion, which Is respon
sible for a great deal of strain. Delicate
gtris should never talk while riding. It
congests the head and takes away a great'
deal of the good of the exercise.
"One should be very careful on dls-,
mounting not to stand In a draught. On
returning from the ride, the underclothing
should be removed, at once: then a sponge

prized by his owner. The officials of the
Pullman Company, at Chicago, when noti

to recover the dog, but could trace him no

a porter of tho company arrested for tho
larceny of his dog, but tho court dis
charged the man, and he and the pup are
still at large. These lines, together with

BOWLERS AND- BOWLING
VARIOUS MATTERS OF ISTEREST TO
FREQUENTERS OF ALLEYS.
Error In Score Affects Standing: ot
Two Championship Flayers
Notes and Comment.
Sixteen of the contestants In last
year's championship bowling contest par
ticipated in the .Interstate event this year,
and but six of them show smaller aver
ages than those made In 1S39. Buckman
shows a loss of J22 of a pin; Cole drops
from 46.10. to 33J2; Cauthorn's loss was
over 3 pins; Idlcman Is a fraction mora
than 1 pin lower than last year: Slgler Is
nearly 2 pins lower, and Bowes loses a
pin. The other 10 show gains over tho
previous jrear Tlnllng. ot Tacoma. tak
ing the lead, with a gain of 8 pins. Har
rison jumps from 33.73 to 42J2: Parsons
from 33.04 to 33.37; C. A. Burckhardt,
from 41.37 to 41.60; F. O. Burckhardt, 39.03
to 4L62; Churchill, 383 to 1LS3; Tousey.
36.53 to 36.62; Stceb. 36.12 to 36.60: Griggs,
36.12 to 3S.S7, and Mays, 34.75 to 33.42.
The percentage of centers is much less
this year than last, and this makes a
considerable difference In the scores of all
the bowlers. This Is brought about al
most entirely by the padding ot cushions
having been brought up to the 10 Inches
limit, and to some extent to the liberal
oiling of the alleys.
Error in Scores.
The Association bulletin, containing the
scores of the late championship tourna
ments, has been issued, and is being di
gested by the bowlers. It is more than
twice as large as any previously Issued,
and is complete in every respect. One
error has been discovered since the bul
letin was printed. It has developed that
a score of 67. made by C. A. Burckh'ardt
in tho games between Commercial and
Seattle Athletic Clubs, on the Commer
cial alleys, was erroneously credited to
Eckenberger. of the Commercial team.
while Burckhardt was given a 24 score,
made by Eckenberger. This changes tha
position ot these two in rank. Burck
hardt should appear in fourteenth placa
and Eckenberger in the nineteenth.
The error was In the scores as report
ed to the Association, and was made in
transferring totals from the club score
book to the summaries sent to the As
sociation. The error of 43 pins makes a
very decided difference In Burckhardfs
average, which should be 41.53, instead of
40.47. as it appears in the bulletin.
There will be a match bowling contest
between teams representing the T. M. C.
A. and the Oregon Road Club, at tha
alleys of the former. Tuesday night. It
will be merely a friendly contest, but
some fine scores are expected. The T. M.
C A, bowlers have had an eye on tha
Feldenhelmer trophy for a long time,
and. notwithstanding repeated failures In
their attempts, they arc persevering, and
expect, in time, to be able to land It. It
Is probable that another challenge will
be Issued within the next week.
Won by Three Pina.
The narrow margin ot three pins de
cided the Multnomah team tournament
Monday night in favor of Sydney, Zeller,
Langford and Holmes, who secured a
second winning of the medals, in a very
exciting and close finish. Cullison's team
made a sensational score in the third
game, which put that team in fine position
to win out. but In the final game all
except Freeman fell down, and last
week's winners pulled out a second suc
cessive victory. They will make a hard
fight to win "for keeps tomorrow night,
and several good teams will be on hand
to prevent It, if possible.
It will be a great dlsappplntment to
the bowlers of th Multnomah Club to
find that the bowling alleys will be dis
figured in the new house, by the pres
ence of a stairway somewhat similar to
the one which now exists in the present
house. This stairway has been the source
of a great deal of annoyance In the past,
on account of Its Interference with the
spectators space, and a number of In
effectual attempts have been made
have It removed. When It was found
that It was the intention to put a stair
way In the new alleys, a number of the
bowlers protested, and the building com
mittee, appreciating the wisdom of tha
suggestion, that the stairway be elim
inated, arranged with the architect to
have It placed outside the building, and
this action greatly pleased the bowling
It seems, however, that the architect
has since announced that the change can
not be made, and consequently the stair
way has been erected iccordlng to the
original plan. "While the new allej-3 will
be somewhat better arranged, in the way
of affording room for spectators, this
stairway will consume a large slice ot
valuable space, and will always be an
eyesore to the bowlers generally.
