A party of five gentlemen from Alameda passed through town on their bicycles Sunday morning. They were out for a record, and they got one, making the run from Alameda to San Jose in three hours and forty minutes. The parties making this astonishing trip were J. E. Barber, R. B. Tappan, T. G. Daniells, J. E. Bland and Clyde Conkey, each one of whom weighs 200 pounds or more.
