The century run to San Jose yesterday brought out some thirty odd wheelmen. The arrangements made by Messrs. Cox, [Joseph G. Cox?] Hodgkins and Col were most excellent, but the fact that most of the city riders have been over the road many a time before and fully realize what that head wind means may perhaps account for the small number of riders. The run left Twenty-first and Mission streets at 5:45 o'clock, breakfast at Redwood City at 8:12 and San Jose at 12:12. The actual riding time down was 5h. 18m.; coming back, 7h., L. G. Hodgkins and T. C. Dodge of the Bay Citys and A. Dietle being the first men in. The following is a list of the men and clubs on the run: The Bay City Wheelmen - L. G. Hodgkins (who managed the run), T. H. Doane, T. C. Dodge, J. G. Hecker, E. E. Stoddard, Charles Dietle, A. E. J. Nye, J. J. Hull, J. F. Brown Jr., A. M. Burns and W. B. Sperry.
Those on the run were Captain Thomas H. Doane, George P. Wetmore, Alex M. Burns, Charles Dietle, Alfred J. Storey, Arthur Barnes, Horace B. Sperry, Calvin N. Langton, Wallace Thompson, Theodore C. Dodge, Albert F. Buneman, Charles H. Rankin, George H. Bell and George Andrews, and "Tom," the club dog. Edwin Mohrig and Robert M. Welch started for a century run yesterday morning in order to get a bar for their "Century Club" badges.
During the afternoon Louis Deloy of the Imperial Cycling Club of San Francisco had a narrow escape from drowning. He was in swimming with a party of wheelmen, when he was taken with cramps and sank to the bottom. Supposing he was swimming under water no notice was at first paid to him, but when the true cause of his disappearance was realized, C. T. Dodge, [Should be T. C. Dodge - MF] captain of the Bay City Wheelmen, who was also in bathing, dived to the bottom and brought Deloy to the surface. With considerable difficulty the was brought to shore, where It took almost ten minutes to revive him.
