At the semi-annual election of the Ariel Bicycle Club, held a few days ago, the following officers were elected: J. D. Arkison, President; L. Sears, Treasurer; Charles Havens, Secretary: H. A. Maxwell, Captain, and T. Grimes, Lieutenant. Directors - L. Sears, J. D. Arkison, C. Havens, W. G. A. Miller, and C. J. Kryster. On Saturday evening next the club will have a little social time at the clubrooms in the Shattuck Hall, corner of Eighth street and Broadway. The occasion will be the presentation of the medals won at the tournament held on Thanksgiving Day. President Arkison of the club will present the medals, after which a banquet will be had.
Realizing the advantages of a perfect track in proximity to the metropolis, and being assured of a large list of entries, representing many organizations of wheelmen, the Alameda Bicycle and Athletic Club has decided not to go to Stockton, but to hold a meet of its own on July 4. Many of the crack riders will be represented, including Grant Bell, Walter Foster, B. C. Lund, George Neece, Harry Maxwell, Jesse Ives and probably Edwards and Delmas of San Jose. The State is big enough for two racing meets on one day, and the crowd at Stockton will leave enough people in this vicinity to fill the spacious park at Alameda. The only thing to be regretted is the discord which has been engendered between some of the clubs.
