The members of the football club are
formulating plans- for the construction
of a cinder path on the Smith's Point
grounds, and In all likelihood the
games on the Fourth will so popularize
amateur athletic sports in this city
that en Impetus will be given the
movement that will not only resnltln
the building of the track, but also in
the erection of suitable dressing rooms,
baths, etc., for the benefit of those who
may wlsH ta exercise.
The Bay Railway Company, which
lth lavish generosity has given its
entire receipts on several occasions
when benefit football matches were
held, has promised aid to the scheme,
and success Is assured. Clubmen are
confident that before the close of the
summer Astoria will have a club which
will have for its object the promotion
of truly honest athletic sports, and In
which there will be no element of pro
There are many good runners in the
city et present who, through lack of
familiarity with the rules governing
amateur sports, have 'been disqualified
by competing for money prizes, but
these will probably apply for reinstate
ment to the Pacific Coast Amateur
In order that the professionals may
bave one race, a special event has been
included In the program, the winner
of which will be given ($20 and the
The definition of an amateur Is brief
ly as follows: "One who has not en
tered in. an open competition, (open
alike to amateurs and professionals), or
for either a stake, public or admission
money or entrance fee, or who has not
competed against a professional for any
prize, or who has not instructed in any
athletic exercises for any emolument.'
The qualifications outlined above will
be the standard by which the status
of athletes is judged by the club, and
in this way it is hoped that In time the
pernicious Influence- of money prizes
for athletic events will be avoided by
all. The club recognizes the fact that
competition In athletics with the hope
of gain as a motive rather that the
attainment of physical health and
strength, generally leads but in one di
rection, and that the path is too fre
quently a dishonorable one. For these
reasons it Is not too much to expect
mat. tne ciuds future will be even
brighter and more successful than has
been Its past.
There will be sore disappointment
among the club members Jf every one
who attends does not vote the day the
grandest success ever witnessed in As
THE WIRES DOWN.
Yesterday afternoon about 6 o'clock
a, break occurred In the Western Union
telegraph wire, and in consequence,
but a small portion of the Astorlan's
telegraphic report was received.
The discomforts of heat, dust and
humidity are forgotten in reading the
July number of Romance. A "Special
Oriental Number," It opens with a
striking legend of the East by Harry
Wlllard French, and contains interest
ing excerpts from Hindoo, Persian and
Japanese literature (one of them amus
ingly rendered Into English by a native
Japanese); one of Rudyard Kipling's
oddest tales; a thrilling incident of the
Sepoy mutiny; and a stirring original
account of a Kangaroo hunt In Austra
lia by Wm. Thomson. In vivid contrast
to these are a Fourth-of- July story by
Harriett Prescott Spoftord; a quaint
character-study, In her best style, by
Mary E. Wllkins; a weird ghost story
by Guy de Maupassant; a- capital ten
nis story by R. I. Cowen; several beau
tiful love stories; and strong, original
American sketches by James Harvey
Smith and Arthur James Pegler. This
