TO CLUB HOUSES
QUAIL AND DUCK SHOOTING IS
Opening of Season Is Marked by Gen.
eral Exodus of *ngelenos Who
Seek the Covert and
There was a great exodus of khakl
clad men from Los Angeles last night.
Trolley cars and trains took them away
by hundreds, and automobiles and liv
ery rigs conveyed scores to the chapar
ral and the club houses by the shores.
Duck hunters with shell bags and
gun cases, quail hunters with pockets
full of luncheon, shore bird hunters
with shell vests crammed full of brass
rimmed red and yellow cylinders, ah
in eager expectation of tha first day's
eport afield for the season.
Down at the club houses last night
there were merry crowds of sportsmen
who burned good tobacco and drew
the long bow until the momentous hour
when the dice were rolled for first
choice of blind and first gun.
Out In the brown scrub covered foot
hills and up deep green canyons scores
of men slept beneath the stars last
night and many arose this morning a
little sore as to body, but cheerful as
to mind for the call of the valley quail
was already to be heard far away
where the sun had tipped the hilltops
with the morning halo.
The shore bird gunners who went
down last night were on the marshes
and along the shore at daylight, where
the plover, curlew, sickle bill, snipe and
other waders and swimmers are re
ported to be quite plentiful.
As for ducks, there are more of them
than there has been on the southern
coast for many years. E. B. Tufts of
the Pacific Gun club made a trip dow'ti
to the club Wednesday and returned
via Newport. His observation covered
the preserves of twelve clubs. Mr. Tufts
says he believes there are ten times as
many ducks on the inland waters of the
clubs as there were three years ago.
There are now twenty-three shooting
clubs In Orange and Los Angeles coun
ties devoted to the sport of duck shoot-
These clubs have provided vast areas
of fresh water for the birds. There are
a large number of new artesian wells
in this district and the green feed,
which is the direct result of the fresh
water, has attracted myriads of water
fowl to the preserves.
In the blinds, just before dawn this
morning, sat scores of eager shooters
all awaiting light enough to enable
them to see their sights and to hear
the report from the gun of the man
who had been fortunate enough to
draw that privilege.
The following members of the Bolsa

And the officers left the table.
Going behind the lockers they saw
"Satan" behind an officer's helmet,
with muffled "meows" emanating from
the helmet. Officer Varey immediately
recognized his property and gently

OLDEST MORMON INTERESTING
Nathan Tanner, Nlnety.One Years of
Age, Vividly Recalls Thrilling
Scenes of the Early
The oldest Mormon In the world, Na
than Tanner, a veteran of 91 years,
Is a member of the party of Mormon
patriarchs which Is In Los Angeles
this week. Mr. Tanner, who built the
first brick house In Missouri in 1834,
removed to Nauvoo in 1835, and there
embraced the Mormon faith. He r«
ltites many Interesting stories of ad
vontures which happened to his party,
which was the first of the Mormon
caravans to cross the plains.
"In the early spring of 1847," said
Mr. Tanner, "the first company of Mor
mons to start for the promised land
of Utah was preparing for the Jour
ney from the village of Nauvoo, 111.
It was necessary to post guards each
night to kee.p the Indians from running
off our horeses and oxen. On this par
ticular night the guard on duty was
not sufficiently vigilant and the In
dians came and stole all of our stock.
That was not very pleasing to me as
the leader of the company, and In the
morning, together with my brother
and another man, I started out after
the stolen animals.
Indians Steal Horses
"We soon came to the camp of a
band of Illinois Indians, but the chief
disclaimed all knowledge of the stock.
I rather suspected that he knew more
than he said about our horses and
oxen and pressed him closely to find
their whereabouts. At last he ad
mitted that he knew where the stock
was, but nworfe that his band had
nothing to do with the stealing. He
gave me a guide and we started out
to find the camp of the Leotas, who,
he said, were the guilty ones. But be
tween us and the camp of the Leotas
ran the Mississippi river, which is at
that point a mile wide. It was, as I
said, in the early spring, and the jeo
was not all out of the river, and great
cakes of Ice, together with logs and
trees, were coming down the river,
which was running like a mill race,
it being the season of the spring
"It was absolutely necessary that we
recover the stock, bo we started to
cross the river on our horses. Before
we had gone over fifty feet our Indian
guide turned his horse around and said
that, he did not dare to go, as the
Leotas would surely kill him. I turned
my horse around, too, and we rode
back to the land. I got down from my
horse and made the guide get down
also. 'Now,' I said to him, "if you go
with us you may be killed, but If you
don't go it Is certain that you will be
killed, for I shall do it myself,' and
I got my gun ready for action. He
Have Narrow Escape
"After a series of terribly narrow
escapes from logs and cakes of Ice
wo landed on the other side of the
river and went straight to the camp
of the Leotas. I accused the. chief of
having stolon our stock, and he said
that he had nothing to do with It,
but that some of his young men might
have done It. He called all the mem
bers of the tribe before him and told
them that the stock must be returned.
Two young bucks confessed to the
theft and were soundly berated by
the chief for being tracked and dis
covered. His code of morals was that
It was all right to steal, but that it
Is very bad to be found out.
"It was late at night and we could
not get our stock before the next
morning, as the horses and oxen had
been turned out to graze and would
require some search to get them to
gether. The chief was Insistent that
we turn our saddle horses out for
the night, but this we refused to do,
for If by any chance our mounts were
lost we should be stranded. So to be
perfectly safe each man stood all night
and held the bridle of his horse over
his arms. It was bitter cold and the
only way we had to warm ourselves
was to chew cinnamon root, which
was pungent tasting and warmed our
mouths. There was a little resin weed
growing there, but we soon burned
that The next morning the chief,
had our stock rounded up and we
started back to the camp. Wo re
crossed the river and arrived at the
camp about dark. The sentry through
whose laziness we lost our animals

turned up again."

Believing that the train had slowed
down sufficiently to allow him to
safely alight, Egbert Post of Downey
stepped from a swiftly moving Salt
Lake train at Workman station early
last evening and was seriously injured
about the face and body. Post was
picked up by the train crew, who heard
his cries, and brought to Los Angeles
and sent to the receiving hospital.
Post Is an elderly man, and stated
to the surgeons that he thought he

Little Jermana Rodriguez Finds Friend
In Senor Antonio Lozano, Mexican
Consul — Women Would
After nearly two years of trouble and
unspeakable torture, little Jermana
Rodriguez, the Mexican girl whom It Is
alleged was sold Into slavery, has
found a good friend In the person of
the Mexican consul at Los Angeles. By
Senor Antonio Lozano's efforts she will
be returned to the care and protection
of her parents at Chihuahua, Mexico,
during the coming week.
Throughout the entire court proceed
ings the Mexican consul has been deeply
interested, and his wire to President
Diaz yesterday was answered by nn

In speaking of the troubles of the
girl yesterday, Consul Lozano said:
"The 'case of this little girl Is very
distressing. My heart has bled for the
poor little waif, who. hundreds of miles
away from her parents and at nn age
when a girl most needs a mother's care,
has received Inhuman treatment.
"This case was brought to 'my no
tice several weeks ago. Since then I
have been constantly at work on the
case and shall go to the bottom of it.
"At present the little girl is being
well cared for at our expense at the

the moment I first saw her I knew
that she had been wronged. Many
kind women of Los Angeles have culled
today to ask about the little girl. They
have read In The Herald the story of
the girl's suffering and wish to care for
her. I thank them for their interest In
the defenseless little maiden, but the
girl has her 4-year-old brother with her
and they must not be separated. To
gether they shall go back to their home
under the protection of the govern
ment of Mexico."
One of the first of the kind-hearted
women of Los Angeles to offer care for
the little girl yesterday was Mrs. R. L.
Beatus of 1701 New Englnnd street.
Other offers were received, but as
threats against the child's life have
been made It Is thought best to send
her to her parents at Chihuahua.
V. R. Martinez of 527 Solano avenue
was moved to pity by the story of the
girl's plight as told in The Herald
