in prison, but . the arresting officers were
almost mobbed by the good people of the
town where the trial was being held. Th»y
• wished to see the little river running l,y j

and water ,-cards. That night the com- j
* missioner was serenaded by a gang of hair,
'drunken rustics, wno ble'wfish horns for !

among the tree-clothed hills of that picture '

speckled brook beauties, and their bank| !
are the farms of good citizens who slaugh- I

the Sunday fisher .stretches his net and '
drags the always harisscd salmon from nig |
place of Sabbath rest. A. conviction of th.» j
offender!-- almost an iiripovsibil'itv wheel

ago an applicant for a deputyship appeared
before the Board of Commissioners.
His credentials were good and he
was on the point of being appointed to
a vacancy, when he was asked his postoffice
address. He answered, "Rio Vista," d
the chief deputy fell out of his chair in a
dead faint, while the president was f ._ a

Occasionally Chief J. P. Babcock, with ,
several deputies, boards the launch Hust- ;
ler and takes a quiet Sunday cruise among
the tules fishing, not for fish, but for fish- i
ers. It is the Christian Sabbath and the '
day religiously set apart for rest, but the j
Commissioners, Obeying literally the divine
injunction to be "fishers of men," feel I
justified and go . on their way . re- 1
joicing. Up in the reedy sloughs i
they will ' find whom they seek— a
law and a Sabbath-breaker. The double- !
sinner will first try frantically to haul in
his long, deep net, and the Hustler being
too speedy he will cut it, preferring to save
only a portion than run the chances of
losing the whole outfit and himself in the |
bargain when the launch dashes alongside. I
I hen he will duck for the tall grass like a
marsh-rat, abandoning his boat to its fate I
when he strikes the levee,^ if the Hustler
presses him. So anxious are these poach
ers, to do a little Sunday fishing, or in
some way have the supreme satisfaction of

Aot long ago Chief -Deputy; Babcock,
with .several fish patrolmen, ran up above
Collinsville on a still hunt. It was a calm,
quiet Sunday— too quiet, in fact, : for the
Hustler's mission, for 'it seemed to her
passengers that the beat of -the propeller
could be heard twenty miles off. Soon
other sounds were heard among the tolas—
reports of guns fired by the fishermen in
their 4>oats or scows — the common signal
of warning on the river that the patrolmen
arc out. They are all virtually lawbreak
ers, *»*ery alien mother's son of them, and
the Fish Commissioner is a common enemy
whose approach must . be signaled through
the cutoffs and reaches of the river.
Notwithstanding these precautions sev
eral boats and poachers were captured
after exciting chases through the deep
mud and tall reeds and the prizes turned
i over to the constable at Collinsville. Mov
j ing on in their raid they captured the
■ boat and net of an American named
White, who has been arrested four times
for illicit fishing. He is a big man, of un
governable 'temper, a willful, determined
; fellow, and had sworn to use his shotgun
. upon the patrolmen when next they inter
fered with his fishing, law or no law. He
j immediately -took his boat away from the
[ timid deputy constable, and with his bat
| tery aboard went hunting the hunters.
.j He was furious, half drunk, and
-came with the expressed determination
'of killing Deputy Babcock on sight.
: White stood on the levee near the launch"
and with both hammers of the gun raised
threatened and abused the officials with
the vilest language. He was in a danger
, ous mood and it only. needed the slightest
! move on their part to draw a murderous
fire from the gun he brandished so sav
agely. Of course there was a big navy re
volver secretly watching him and before
. he could have leveled his weapon he would
have been "riddled, but the officers stood
quietly by for almost an hour and let him
pour his torrent of villainous words upon
' them until he wore himself out. Thus
what might probably have ended in a
' bloody gunfight was averted by the ad
mirable coolness and excellent judgment
lof the arresting officers. White was ar-
; rested, charged with illicit fishing and
making threats to commit murder.
; The men engaged in fishing along the
bays and sloughs of the Sacramento are by
no means a lamblike" people, as several
have been killed and wounded while des
| perately resisting the law officers. They
all hate the Fish Commission, whose gra
tuitous labors keep them from cleaning out j
of those waterways every salmon that seeks I
to pass. Taken altogether the Fish Com- ■
missioner's life is not a very happy one,
giving as he does his days and nights to i
protecting the helpless finny wards of the i

UNION COURT VICTORIES.
The Occidental, Club to Make
an Effort to Bring Casey '• .
o The handball courts were well patronized
yesterday and in each several rattling
eanies were played. The greatest interest
attached to the concluding games of the
match between J. Lawless and G. Hutchin
son of the San Francisco court and J. Nel
son and John = Dillon of the Union court,
which was played in the forme"?* court.
The Union court team proved too strong
for their opponents and won the match by
five games. to two. Another attraction at
this court was a game between Jones, the
Australian champion, and J. Harlow and
John Slattery, the champion winning after
an exciting struggle by three games '.to
At the Occidental court the game of the
day was between T. F. Bonnet and E. Ma
loney and Champion P. T. Donnelly and
I Tom Cashin. The two former won the
| game, owing chiefly to Bonnet's fine toss-
There were several keenly contested
games at the Union court. One of the best
j was between R. Linehan and J. Feeney
. and M. Dillon and Al Pennoyer, the two
i former winning by three games to one. A
[ single-hand game between . Terry Mc-
Manus and Professor Lynch attracted great
attention. The professor was defeated by
Terry the previous Sunday, but he had his
revenge yesterday. The new floor on this
court is giving great satisfaction.
The Occidental Handball Club has de
cided not to send two players|to Brooklyn,
but the secretary has written Phil Casey,
the world's champion, asking what terms
will induce him and Alderman Dunne to
visit this city. .
As Champion Riordan and Kelly have
not seen fit to press their challenge to play
Jones, the Australian champion, Jones is
out with a challenge to play any two.hand
ballers on the coast, professional or ama
teur, for $100 a side or more, the match to
be the best of nine games. y . -y.
Considerable interest is being taken in
the team tournament to be played in the
Occidental court, commencing about May.
1. Already sixteen teams have entered
and many more may be expected. .5 v
The following games were played at the
San Francisco court : ' . '

• J. Condon and R. Shields defeated James Dil
lon and R. Shea by the following score : 15—12,
8—15,15—9. • '.
The deciding games in the match between J.
Lawless and G. Hutchinson of the San Fran
cisco court and J. Nelson and John Dillon of
the Union court were played. As Nelson and
Dillon had three games to their credit, all that
was necessary to win was two more. They
started in and made 9 aces, then their oppo
nests scored 11. " Dillon and Nelson then ran
up to 15, Lawless and Hutchinson then scored
7 aces, then Dillon and Nelson ran the* score
out by 21—18. "Lawless and Hutchinson sur
prised everybody by winning the next game by
the score of 21—0. The final game was a good
one, and was lost by Lawless missing at critical
points in the game. His partner put up a good
game, and lost after a desperate struggle by the
score of 21—10.
J. Jones, the Australian champion, defeated
Harlow and Slattery in the best three out of
five 21 aces by the following score :

"SENSATIONS IN ILLNESS. • .
It Is Curious How \a ; Man- Feels When
-. He Knows He Needs a Doctor.
' "It is ; curious, " said a " man yesterday,
"the various sensations a man experiences
when he goes to see a doctor or a i dentist.
There is a long, preliminary siege of men
tal agony, alternately exaggerating and
belittling your ailment, until finally * in a
moment of desperation > you decide to go
and see what; is the matter way. Per
haps • you ': have :a -: cold which has : settled
on the' lungs and 'developed a troublesome
cough that keeps ' you \ awake nights. . The
cough itself .is not ' so bad as the terrible
Sossibilities it suggests. Visions of swift
emise " from v pneumonia '• or • slow wasting
away with consumption rise up before your
eyes, and every wheeze and cough confirms
these terrible premonitions. 77 If you could
you would go then in ■ a hurry, but ' in the
morning you feel better. .;.- '■-*-. •
The cough is still 1 there, but the terrors
of , the*, imagination have fled before the
daylight, so ; you : put ; it ,' off another day.
But ; finally s you decide ' to go, and with
firmness born of ' despair, march up to the
medical man's door to learn your fate. In
case of toothache every one knows how a
tooth .will hop. and jump and smart all
day until you get to the dentist's, and then
calm down so quiet and painless that you
can't tell which one was aching. •„ It is the
same way : with a cough or ; other ailment.
As you go up to the door you secretly hope
that the doctor, is not at home. You pull
the doorbell gently, and half wish you naa
not come. Then the funniest part" of it is
how mad you get when you find the doctor
is not at home, and feel as if you had been
cheated out of one of your dearest hopes.—'

"JOY'S FOR THE JADED."
I have had for years spells of Indigestion and
dyspepsia, and have * tried nearly everything.
•Finally I took one of the sarsaparillas. It did not
help me and caused pimples to break out on my
face. This I was told was the result of : the potash,
contained in it. Hearing that Joy's Vegetable Sar-
saparilla did not contain mineral and acted dif-
ferently, I got some. The pimples disappeared al-
most Immediately, and I have not had any since.
I have not had a symptom of my old disease, nor
do I think it will return. '.:■<=
