SAN JOSE, Cal., Sept. 25. — At the annual meeting of the Garden City cyclers last evening the reports of the various officers showed the organization to be in a prosperous condition, with a membership of 350. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, H. M. N. Spring; vice-president, S. G. Tompkins; financial secretary, H. A. Alexander; recording secretary, George Pollard; directors — A. C. McKenney, George Anderson, Henry Lion, J. A. Chase, Joe Delmas; captain, J. B. Carey; first lieutenant, Joe Edwards; second lieutenant, W. J. O'Brien; bugler, L. E. Whiting; color-bearer, Jack Dermody.
Allan Jones and D. E. Whitman have been on the ground for several days, and last night Otto Ziegler, the Coast champion, accompanied by Hardy Downing, John E. Wing and trainer John Dermody left for the north. They will accompany President A. P. Swain of the California Associated Clubs, who will also have in his party Percy R. Mott, one of the fastest amateurs on the Coast.
THE annual 100-mile relay race around the bay is but five days off. Judging from the showing made by the Garden City Wheelmen in the past, they will probably carry off the honors Sunday. Captain Dermody has selected the following 10 men to represent the local wheelmen Sunday: J. Berryessa, R. Diefenbacher, S. Maggini, C. Showalter, P. Maggini, B. Murphy, W. Waible, Merle Grey, C. Burnett and W. Chaboya. All these youngsters have had previous experience in road racing. Many are known as being among the fastest amateurs on this coast.
