News From TJkia. Which Will Touch the
Hearts of Anglers and Sportsmen.
"UKIAH, April 26.— The fishing season
in the vicinity of Ukiah, Mendocino
County, has opened in good earnest, and
the lovers of sport can indulge in their
favorite pastime to their heart's content.
Thanks to the work of tne Ukiah Sports
man's Clnb the streams have a bountiful
supply of trout. Hitherto people who had
no regard for legitimate sport or the law
would do most of their fishing prior to the
Ist of April, and in consequence the streams
would be robbed before the open season
begun and the sport spoiled for the year.
The Sportsman's Clnb have kept the prin
pal streams patrolled and have had a stand
ing reward for information which would
lead to conviction of those violating the
law, and hence good sport can now be had
in any of the trout streams of the county,
and they are numerous. The use of giant
powder and other explosive substances by
miscreants who cared only for the quan
tity of fish has been effectually stopped.
Last year the Fish Commissioners gener
ously stocked most of the main streams,
and promised to give a generous distribu
tion of young fish again this year gen
erally throughout the Mendocino streams,
of which there are many. Mendocino
County is the sportsman's paradise, and
the Ukiah Sportsman's Club and the citi
zens propose to keep it such.
The streams of the county may be
classed as "interior" and "coast." The
interior streams are the Russian River and
tributaries, covering the territory east of
the watershed, marking the source of the
ocean streams, from Potter Valley, about
twenty miles north of Ukiah, and south to
Every stream ' that flows west to the
Pacific through the forest belt is in
itself a charmed virgin spot waiting for

nature in her unmolested condition.
This season, owing to the late heavy
rains, is a trifle "late," but that will guar
antee excellent sport later in the summer
The water, except in the smaller streams,
is high and somewhat murky, but notwith
standing several good creels of trout have
been brought in.
F. H. Eastman, the commissary of the
Mendocino Asylum, is the fisherman of
whom all the aspiring sportsmen of Ukiah
are justly jealous. It is said he can catch
trout in the road after the rain. In fact he
did catch two beauties in the road where
it crosses Russian River coming home a
day or two since. Those were two elegant
specimens of salmon trout of proportions
respectable enough to weigh about three
James A. Cooper and J. C. Ruddock, two
of Ukiah's prominent attorneys, took a
very happy party out to Walker Creek on
Saturday last and had a most enjoyable
day. The occasion of the trip was a prom
ise made by these gentlemen to their
daughters. Miss Ethel Cooper and Miss
Alice Ruddock, of an outing on the first
occasion of Miss Ethel's vacation from her
school at Berkeley. There were Mrs. J. A.
Cooper, Mrs. J. il. Mathews, Miss Ethel
Bachtel, Miss Grace Mathews, Miss Madge
Theaker of Victoria, guests and school
mates of Miss Cooper; Miss Mabel Hirsch.
Miss Alice Chalfant and Master Ernest
Mathews and those first named.
Several of the young ladies caught their
first trout on that occasion and the woods
resounded with the exultant shout of the
captor. About 150 trout were creeled and
they were soon served crisp and toothsome <
in the camp on the shady hank of the
stream. Mrs. Cooper is at home on a trout
stream, and, with her rod and reel and
creel and outing garb, makes a formidable
rival for any of the sterner sex who assume
to be inimitable "Waltons."
Amid the grass and flowers, under a va

ful lunch was spread, and songs and reci

the day as one of the most enjoyable of

Much regret has been expressed over the
financial failure of La Fiesta races at Los

Henry Schwartz in his untimely venture
would make up his deficiency it would be
more than covered. The result goes to
show that when there is much excitement
and show business going on in the streets
of a city it is not a good time to have
horse-racing. Had such a gathering of
horses come to Los Angeles at any other
period of the year than Fiesta week, it is
safe to say it would have been greeted with
a large attendance.

WILL NOT OPPOSE IT
The Local Revenue Office in
Favor of the Brandy
A Good Measure Which Will Benefit
One of the Big Industries of
There will not be much opposition on
the part of the Government, or at least by
the Government officers on this coast, to
the passage of the law allowing the bot
tling of spirits in bond, as the framers of
the measure anticipated. It was expected
that serious opposition would be shown on
the ground of inexpediency, expense and an
increased liability to fraud, but instead of
this it is considered a good measure by
Internal Revenue Collector O. M. Wei
burn, and his office will support it.
"The law has never been presented to
us," said Louis Loupe, Mr. "Welburn's
chief deputy, "and so we know but little
about it. From what I do know, how
ever, I think the law would be a good one,
and it would not be difficult to put it in
practice. On the issue of expense, I don't
see how it will cut much of a figure, for
the United States storekeeper in each
bonded warehouse has nothing else to do
but keep track of the packages in bond.
Cases of bottles can be looked after just
as well as casks, and the only additional
expense I can see is the necessity for sepa
rate departments in each warehouse
where the bonded cases of bottles may be
kept by themselves."
The "proposed amendment to the in
ternal revenue laws — for that is the
shape in which the new measure will be
presented— is not very generally under
stood by the Government officials, and
much of the opposition which it has met
with is the result of ignorance regarding
the details of the law. The expense of
gauging the spirits in glass and the impos
sibility of gauging it accurately has been
pointed out and urged as an argument
against the law; but under the terms of
the amendment the spirits bottled will be
drawn from casks already in bond and
already gauged, and further gauging is
entirely unnecessary. The only extra ex
pense and trouble which the law will im
pose will be the printing of more bond
stamps for the bottles and affixing them to
the filled packages.
The spirit trade of South America, which
is an extensive one, is carried on almost en
tirely in bottles, and it is this trade which
the local brandy men are seeking to secure
for themselves, and they have framed this
law with a view to make that possible, ln
foreign countries, where it is permitted to
bottle in bond, the shipper may ship his
goods in bottles from bond, without the
expense of taking it out and paying the
tax on it before bottling. -In addition, he
receives the benefit of the bond stamp on
the bottle, which is proof positive of the
purity of its contents. In this country,
there being no law permitting the bottling
of bonded spirits, the shipper must either
ship in wood or he must pay the tax, with
draw his spirits and bottle at his own cel
lar. He therefore loses the amount of the
excise tax, 90 cents a gallon, and also the
moral value of the bond stamp on his
The whisky men from the East are very
anxious to have their product included in
the law, and, in the opinion of the revenue
officers here, if this be done, there is no
doubt of its adoption. The local revenue
office will not oppose the measure in any
way, as it is believed by the Collector to be
a law which will benefit the brandy inter
est of the State materially.

suit for malicious prosecution brought by
Thomas Mulligan, a collector, before Jus

The evidence being in, Justice Cook
promptly decided for the defendant. The
facts as brought out in the testimony were
that Mulligan harassed Judge Low
about an old claim, seeking him in public
places, and finally becoming so abusive as
to give warrant for his arrest. Mulligan
secured bonds, andthe bondsman appealed
to the Judge, and the Judge allowed tbe
matter to be dismissed, with the under
standing that he would no longer be sub
jected to such annoyance. Mulligan
straightway entered the suit which was
tried and adjudged against him yesterday.
Several witnesses testified to Mulligan's
peculiar methods as a collector.

Lone stable, was fined 100 by the stewards
yesterday for striking a stable-boy to whom ho
owed $5 for services rendered. The lad ac
costed owner Murry in the betting ring and
insisted on getting his money with the result
stated. The boy now has the money.
The get of imp. True Briton are certainly
making a great showing, and the black horse
is one of the coming sires of the State. In the
two-year-old race yesterday the favorite, Her
Majesty, ran the fastest four and a half fur
longs yet run by a two-year-old at the meeting,
and Zeta, another daughter of his, finished
third in the same race at her maiden essay
after getting none the best of a poor start.
The California Jockey Club has decided
to continue the present race meeting in
definitely, running all through the sum
mer months, with the exception of the
two weeks during the State Fair.
At the conclusion of the last race yester
day, the stewards of the Jockey Club held
a spirited meeting, to inquire into the
charge of complicity in the alleged "dop
ing" of the Ledette filly, preferred against
the owner, Denny Lynch of the Arizona
stable. Mr. Lynch was on hand promptly,
courting an investigation, and stated that
he had no hand in the matter whatever,
and that circumstances would prove such
to be the case,
Mr. Lynch.- side of the story was heard,
and the colored boy Cuba again told his
story, which was substantially the same
as told before. Some stable employes were
also called and questioned in regard to cer
tain facts in the case, but further than this
very little was accomplished. The investi
gation will be resumed to-day.
Notwithstanding the threatening condi
tion of the weather the attendance was
good and the betting was lively. Favorites,
as usual, had a rough time of it, but two
out of six managing to finish in front.
After the third race the rain made the
track a trifle heavy.
The downfall of the first choices began
with the opening race, when Laurel, a
3 to 1 chance, and Outright, the 6to 5
favorite, raced together to the head of the
stretch, where the favorite began stop
ping. Laurel then went on and won clev
erly from Tamalpais. Little Tough fin
ished in third place. It was a poor run, the
live and a half furlongs being completed in
Her Majesty opened a 2 to 1 favorite for
the four and a half furlong race for two
year-olds, closing at 6 to 5. ' She got a fly
ing start on the field, and was never
headed, winning by a length from Ida H,
an Bto 1 choice. Zeta finished third.
The six-furlong handicap was an extra
lively betting affair. Charles A was played
as though the race was over, going to the
post at 11 to 5. With T. Smith up, Quirt
was overlooked by most bettors, and as
| good as 10 to 1 was* at one time obtainable.
Arnette was second choice, with Mollie R
I a consistent third choice.
"When the flag fell Quirt went to the
front and was never headed, winning
easily by three lengths from the hard-rid
den favorite, Charles A. Arnette was a
rather distant third.
A cheap lot of platers went to the post
for the fourth race, a five and a half fur
long spin. Nelson was apparently the best
of the lot and was made a 9 to 5 favorite.
"With 9 to 1 against her chances. Lulu
took the lead soon after the Hag fell and
led throughout, winning by a length from
The Drummer. The heavily backed Inker
man was third, poorly ridden.
A short six-furlong run, the fifth event
on the card, was taken by the 3 to 1 favor
ite, Gold Bug, in a drive from McFarlane,
who beat Nellie G a head for second place.
Jack Richelieu and Realization came to
gether in the last race, a short six-furlong
run, and the betting was sharp. Once 13
to 10, Jack Richelieu closed in the betting
19 to 20. Realization was 2 to 1 at post
time. Arctic and Miss Ruth also started.
Realization jumped to. the front, with
Jack Richelieu at his heels, and they ran
that way until an eighth from home, when
Carr began riding the favorite. He rode
him desperately, but could not overtake
the California stable's mudlark and was
beaten a head. Miss Ruth was a distant
third, ten lengths away. Mu_ho__a*s*d.

LEXINGTON, Ky., April 26. — With
about 2000 people on the grounds the Ken
tucky Association began its sixty-ninth
annual spring meeting this afternoon.
The track was very fast. Rain occurred
every few minutes. The last race was run
in a heavy rain. The event of the day

athletic association of the University of
Pennsylvania has decided to accept the
conditions and order of events put forward
by the University of California. Califor
nia suggests that two men only be
entered on each event and only two first
count. Of course these conditions are less
favorable to Pennsylvania, but in consid

the Californians for the meeting and her
small team, it was thought to be only fair
that they should be accepted.

A DANCE AND A PLAY
The Jolly Corinthians Will
Have a Merry Opening
A GALA DAY ON MARIN SHORE.
Yachtsmen Will Turn Thespians for
the Nonce and Joy Will Be
The Corinthian Yacht Club will cele
brate the opening of the yachting season
this afternoon and to-night at the club
house at Tiburon. In the afternoon there
will be a dance, and, weather permitting,
there will be an outing on the bay in the
cove of Tiburon. All the yachts of the
fleet will ride at anchor and the small
boats will be moored to the float for the
convenience and pleasure of the guests.
The celebration promises to be the greatest
ever known in the history of the Corinthi
The jolly sailors hailing from the Tibu
ron shore have been very busy during the
past two weeks making preparations for
the entertainment of their fair guests and
they propose to make the celebration a
most memorable one. Many seasons have
been passed without the presence of the
Commodore J. "W. Pew of the Corin
thian Yacht Club.
gentler sex at Tiburon, bnt the Corinthi
ans have determined to destroy a tradition
of the club which has precluded the at
tendance of ladies and keep pace with the
Sausalito side of the bay in the social end
of the season.
Port Captain J. H. Keefe has spent the
last two days at the clubhouse supervising
the arrangements for the great gala occa
sion, and the mere mention of this fact is
sufficient assurance that the matter is in
competent hands. Captain Keefe is going
further than the supervision of the enter
tainment in the afternoon. It is not gen
erally known that he' lays claim to any his
trionic talent, but it is a fact. There is
considerable latent genius in this line
smoldering in the personnel of the gay and
careless sailors which has heretofore lacked
opportunity to make the owners great. To
night many of the yachtsmen will appear
in the role of actors, when a play entitled
"The Moorings" will be produced. The
identity of the author of the play has been
carefully concealed for reasons which may
appear later on. It is an open secret, how
ever, that the breath of the divine afflatus
has touched Captain Keefe, and his
friends confidently assert that to-night will
make him famous.
True, he has not a speaking part, but the
charge of the wigs and costumes has been
intrusted to his hands, and it is in the ma
nipulation of the disguises that it is ex
pected he will achieve fame. A number of
paring posters Have been distributed
throughout the city, setting forth what the
Corinthian Thespians propose to show to
their friends. The posters read like this:

A glance at the names of the foregoing
talent will immediately satisfy the most
captious that the show is going to be a
good one. The poem of Eugene Tßeauce is
said to be a gem in a nautical way, and his
cruise embraces every yacht of any note
on all sides of the bay. Incidental to the
play a feast will be served fit for the gods,
and "The Moorings" will find a most fit
ting setting in a background of pipes and
tobacco and an audience well piped for
the enjoyment of the points in the drama.

ANOTHER FORGED NOTE.
Oscar T. Shuck Received One for Collec
tion on the Estate of James
C. Flood. '
Apropos of the note for $300,000, which
was suddenly sent in to the Fair estate,
Oscar T. Shuck, a local attorney, has dis
covered one worth $200,000, which was,
through him, sent for collection to the es
tate of J. C. Flood. One note on the Flood
estate was made in favor of W. W. Cor
coran and was indorsed presumably by
him on the back of the paper. While it is
generally believed that both the signatures
of Corcoran as indorser and Mood as
maker are forgeries, 1 still there is no one
who will state positively that this is so. .
The note was presented to the trustees of
the Flood estate, and they say that at the
time it was made Flood was in no need of
money, nor do the records of the estate
make any mention of the transaction.
The note is dated "California, Septem
ber 16, 1886," and is worded almost exactly
like the note presented to the trustees of
the Fair estate a few days ago. The note
was as follows :
$200,000. California, Sept. 16, 1886.
Three years after date I promise to pay to the
order of W. W. Corcoran Two Hundred Thou
sand Dollars, at his place in Washington, D. C,
with interest, without defalcation, for value
received. J. C. Flood.
Mr. Shuck received the interesting bit of
paper in 1889 in a letter which stated that
ne had been recommended to the writer,
and he was therefore intrusted with the
note which he was to collect upon and
send the money to Hon. George "Wolfe,
Bristol House, Wilkesbarre, Pa., and the
letter was signed Stroud Starbird.
Mr. Shuck had his suspicions as to the
genuineness of the paper, so he locked it in
his drawer and made no attempt to collect
upon it. A year later he received another
letter from Stroud Starbird, like the first
one, dated from New York. This letter re
ferred to the note sent, and again asked
that it would be collected. This second
letter suggested to Mr. Shuck that for his
own protection he should present the note,
and he accordingly did so. At the office
of the Flood estate, the trustees declined to
say positively that the signatures were for
geries, but they would not pay the note. It
is supposed that some clever forger is
operating in this way all over the country,
getting amounts from various estates
where his aptitude at penmanship may be
turned to account. If this be so, he did
wrong in the two instances which, have
come to light, for he is supposed to be the
maker of the Fair note as well, for the
magnitude of the sums involved worked
toward discrediting the notes and having
A GRECIAN COMBINATION.
