the voracious epicure of the brook. With
admirable patience he hunted among the
grass for the "bon bouche," which was the
piece de resistance of this obstinate gour

ant to record, after this intelligent labor, j
the landing of a big fish, but the unpleas

lost a trout, certainly through no fault of
his own, but because of a big piece of drift

trout foaled the line. Still the efh'cacy of

Fly Fishing in the Truckee River Is

FOU3 MACKEREL CAUGHT AT CATALINA JUNE 27, 1895-WEIGHT
Among several admirers of a grand and
quiet pastime who whipped and trolled the
lakes for trout and bass were some of the
most experienced and practical anglers of
this City, but with all their cunning and
dainty lures only poor success was the re
sult of hard effort and great perseverance.
Thosf among the fraternity who hereto
fore laughed at the idea of the moon af

angling invariably follows bright moon

■'Fir«>t-cla39 sport" are the words that
generally appear at the commencement of
letters received by lovers of angling in this
City from friends* who are at present rusti
cating in the mountains. Al Gumming
writes from Boca that the rainbows of the
Tnnkc-e River have commenced to recog
nize a fly and that the sport of fly-fishing
may be* excellent in a few weeks. He
caught a splendid mess of whoppers a few
days ago during a thunderstorm and in a
letter to Henry Skinner descriptive of the
fun he is having said :
I may be considered a terror because I have
handled a shark In Hanta Cruz Bay in a man
ner that created jealous feelings among rival
anglers but be that as it may, I will tell you
something now that will cause the hirsute
growth ou the top of your head to part itself
unassisted. Just listen! Yesterday, during s
confounded thunder-storm, I hooked what I
judged to have been a 20-pound rainbow.
As the big boy shot downstream I strained
every nerve lo the attempt to stop his wild
run, and by good fortune I succeeded; but
how do yo*i suppose I accomplished the
trick? Just as my line had almost run
out its full length the fish leaped
into the air on feeling the final strain, and in
stantly a flash of lightning almost blinded my
eight; but imagine my astonishment after the
Hash had gone when I felt a dead weight at the
cud of the line — the fish was actually stricken
dead by greased lightning. I immediately set
to work winding up slack and drawing my
prize to the shore, and as the immense salmo

Tiie comments of prominent oarsmen
and authorities on rowing previous to the
great Henley regatta on the Cornell crew
are worthy of mention. The captain and
coach of 'the famous London Club, Mr.
Lehmann, said: "I particularly commend
their straight backs and their* rigidity of j
arm during the stroke. Straight action in
these important respectsmeans an applica- I
tion of force to ttie waterin straight lines." i
But, like a majority of the English critics, I
Mr. Lehmaun refused to concede the •
Americans possession of "swing," and
insisted that their hrst catch of water, as
well as the finish of their stroke, was lack
ing in power; that it fails, in fact, in that
essential last "kick," which serves to keep
a boat traveling during her crew's recov
ery. Another authority said that Cornell's
style of rowing was a great puzzle and a
mystery, which should be easily solved on
the day of the big race, and that if the
Americans won the English system of
rowing must be revolutionized.
Where Anglers Should Try Their
Luck for Striped Bass.
Fishing continues good on the north
shore, and during the past week some very
large catches have been made on all the
principal tishine-grounds from California
L'hy to the Lime Point fog-whistle.
On Monday George Coleman, the well
known angler, and two companions caught
eighty-five pounds of red rockcod at Point
Cavallo, the largest weighing three and a
half pounds and five of them over two
On the same day Fred Manson and
friend caught about sixty pounds of red
and blue rockcod between Lime Point and
Sugarloaf Rock, the largest a blue rockcod
weighing two and three-quarter pounds.
The tomcods are coming into the bay in
large numbers, and good catches of these
fish have been made during the week on
the Sausalito fishing banks. The best
place to catch these fish is about 300 yards
off shore, on the banks extending from the
tide-gauge to the Sausalito ferry landing.
The depth of water varies from twenty to
forty feet, and the hooks used are generally
No. 5 or No. 6 gut hooks, with morsel
worms for bait. Considerable numbers of
kingfish and a few flounders are also
caught in the same place. On Tuesday
last Thomas Menderson and lad caught
over 200 tomcods and kicgnsh in a few
hour9 T time on the banks opposite the
ferry landing in Sausalito.
Several large striped bass have recently
been caught by Italian fishermen at the
United States tide-gauge near Yellow
Blnfl and also near Belvedere Island.
W. G. Grace and His Laurels and
Other Miscellaneous Notes.
The center figure of entire cricketdom
just now is the English champion, W. G.
Grace. The "shilling testimonial" insti
tuted by the London Daily Telegraph
caught on line wildfire and promises to
swell into quite a fortune. And if ever a
cricketer merited a mark of public esteem
"W. G." is undoubtedly the man. I re
member seeing him at the Oval a score of
years ago and figuring that his cricket
days were drawing to a close. Yet since
then he has held his own with hands
down and established a record which is
not likely to be broken. This very season
he has made 1000 runs in eight innings, in
first-class matches , and has completed his
hundredth century. Twice has he taken
all ten wickets in an inning, a feat that
has only sixteen parallels. And he is still
well in the ring.
Here is an instance of the excitement
that reigned in London during the prog
ress of his big inning in the recent
Gloucester-Middlesex match. The colossal
swindler, Jabez Balfour, was on trial at
the time. A prosecution witness was giv
ing most damning testimony in court, but
it seemed not to interest the prisoner a
little bit. He was peering round among
the reporters present, and when at last he
succeeded in attracting their attention be
inquired audibly, "How many has Grace
Eastern cricket is attracting more atten
tion than ever, and although there have
been no very large scoring, the standard of
playing has improved.
The resting place of the Halifax cup for
the season of 1895-96 was virtually decided
June 29, when Gennantown defeated Bel

Coming to local items, the formation of
a new club at Mills Yallev is an indication
of the game's progress. They are about to

SAN JOSE SPORTING.
McFarland Is the Coming Cycling
Star— The Rod and Gun.
SAN JOSE, Cal., July 12.— Floyd Mc-
Farlaud's riding on the Fourth, when he
rode a heat of the two-thirds of a mile
handicap, class A, from scratch, in 1 :25 1-5,
is being commented upon by all bicyclists,
and many predict that he is destined to be
a world-beater. It was not discovered
until the following Sunday that the record
had been broken. McFarland is without
doubt the greatest road-rider in the West,
if not in the country. In the great relay
race this spring he made the fastest time,
covering his ten miles in 26:59. A few
weeks later, in the rive-mile handicap road
race of the Road Club, he b^oke the coast
record, riding from scratch in 13:43 2-5. Mc-
Farland has wonderful powers of en
durance. For the last year he has
carried the Daily Mercury to Gil
roy every morning, a distance of I
thirty miles. He carries about thirty
pounds of papers and makes the distance
in a little over two hours. During the
great strike of a year ago McFarland car
ried the Mercury to Gilroy and returned
on his wheel every day — a distance of sixty
miles — for nearly two weeks. Riding this
distance day after day has developed Mc-
Farland into a phenomenal road-rider,
and no doubt has helped to place him at
the head of class A rulers. He has ridden
in all the meets of the last two years, and
has won more than his share of prizes.
McFarland is but 20 years of age and has |
been a prominent member of the Road I
Club ever since it was organized. A few
weeks ago the Olympic Club of San Fran
cisco made an effort to secure his member- j
ship, but he preferred to remain with the i
The San Jose Road Club will hold the
seventh of its series of five-mile handicap
road races over tne regular course in East
San Jose on Sunday. The race is for a
silver trophy, which has to be won three
times to become the personal property of
a rider. Navlet and Benson have each
won the cup twice, and Harris and McFar
land once. McFarland won the last race
in 13:43 2-5, which is the coast five-mile
record. The entries and handicap for the
race are: T. E. Belloli, G. Navlet and G.
Hardenbrook, scratch; V. A. Benson, J.
Harrington, 45 sconds; C. Dahlstrom, J.
Wing and M. J. O'Brien, 50 seconds; Fred
Smith, 1 minute and 15 seconds.
The race should be a close and exciting
one, for all the riders are in active training
for the event.
The Road Club and Acmes of Oakland
hold a joint run and picnic on August 4.
A barbecue and feast will be the attractive
feature. Alum Rock will probably be se
lected as the picnic ground.
F. A. McFarland of the Road Club and
Dick Moody and C. M. Smith of the
Cyclers have gone to Eureka to compete at
the races there at the Sequoia carnival on
July 19 and 20.
On McFarland's return from Eureka he
will try for the world's mile record. He
has applied for the sanction of the L. A. \V.
racing board for such an event. Tandems
will be put on at the thirds, and, as he
rode two-thirds of a mile inl:2s'<on the
Fourth, it is thought he will be* able to
reduce the record.
The San Jose Road Club was never in a
more prosperous condition than at pres
ent. It has a membership of eighty-five,

August 100,000 cutthroat trout will be dis
tributed in the streams of this county.
Dove-shooting is at its height and several
fine bags have been exhibited by parties

FISHING NEAR CATALINA.
The Coast Record Broken With a
215-Pound Jew Fish.
AVALON, Catalina Island, Cal., July
12. — The fishing record of the Pacific Coast
is broken by a Canandaigua (N. V.) an
gler, Stuart-Menteth Beard, who has been
making enormous catches all the season at
Catalina Island. Recently Mr. Beard re
turned from a two days' fishing expedition
to San Clemente Island, which lies twenty
miles farther out to sea, bringing a 215
--pound Jew fish, which he landed with a
' light rod and a 15-thread Cuddyhunk line,
; after a throe hour and thirty-live minutes'
light. The jraniey monster towed the boat
; with three men in it a distance of two and
a half miles out to sea. The battle took
I place after dark, the fish being first hooked
I about Bp. m. This is the largest fish ever
caught with rod and reel on the Pacific
Coast, and considering the lateness of the
hour and the lightness ofi,he line will be
sure to attract world-wide notice in sport
ing circles. The world's record up to date
is 2:5.'i pounds with a 21-thread line and a
stiff Tarpon rod. _
SPORTING AT FRESNO.
Association of Horsemen Formed.
A Fall Race Meeting.
FRESNO, Cal., July 11.— Within the
past few days the interest of Fresno horse
men in the plan of having a fall race
meeting has been thoroughly aroused. An
association has been formed, and all the
racing men in the city are members.
Fresno has one of the finest tracks on the
coast and several world's records have been
beaten on it. Sunol, when a colt, lowered
a record, and the racers brought here by
Monroe Salisbury la3t winter did excellent
work. Mr. Salisbury considered this one
of the fastest tracks he had raced on, and
lie said that Flying Jib, Robert J and oth
ers of the string would have equaled or
lowered their records had a rain not come
on just before the trial.
The coursing meet begins on October 1
and continues five days. Racing on the
Northern circuit ends "just hefore the races
here, and fnoni 200 to 300 horses will pass
through Frepno to co to the Southern cir
cuit. The officers of the Fresno associa
tion are confident of beine able to induce
the owners of nearly all of these to stay
over for the week. Purses amounting to
$11,800 have been hung up. In five events,
three of which are running and two pac
ing, the purses are $1000 each.
There are twenty-two events as follows;
Trotting, free for all. 2:13, 2:17. 2:20, 2:24,
2:27, 2:40, 2:27 (district), 2:40 (district);
pacing, 2:25 (district), free for all, 2:13,
2:17, 2:20, 2:25; running, five-eighths of a
mile dash, quarter of a mile dash, three
quarters of a mile dash, one mile dash,
half-mile dash, half-mile dash and repeat,
seven-eighths of a mile dash. American
Trotting Association rules govern the
meet. The district includes Fresno, Inyo,
Kern, Kings, Merced, Mariposa, Mono,
Madera und Tulare.
The citizens of this place have taken
hold of the proposed meet with enthu
siasm, and a large amount of money is
being raised by subscription to defray the
expense of putting the track and grounds
in the best of condition. The fair grounds
were sold under a foreclosure of a heavy
mortgage a few months ago, but horsemen
are determined to revive the interest in
racing. Douglas K. Mott.

BlcDoKough's Petition Is Denied— A
Supply Contractor Wants to Throw
Up His Job.
At the meeting of the Health and Police
Committee of the Board of Supervisors
yesterday morning, the petition of Patrick
McDonough asking for the contract of the
City Pound was denied. McDonough of
fered to perform the duties of poundkeeper
without expense to the City. The Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals,
which is now in charge of the pound, en
tered a strong protest, which was listened
to by a majority of the committee. Su
pervisor King was in favor of McDonough
on the ground of economy, but his con
freres voted down the proposition.
Sheriff Whelan had a communication
before the committee complaining that the
supplies furnished to the County Jail by
Hugo Goldsmith were not up to the re
quirements of his contract atjd that many
had been rejected.
Goldsmith appeared and asked to be re
leased from his contract, as owing to lack
of experience he was unable to carry it out.
This the committee refused to do, but they
agreed to recommend an assignment of his
contract to the Pacific Marine and Supply
Company on ihe filing of a proper bond".
It was decided to report aeainst covering

Remus Given the Decision Over
Road Runner In a Very Doub
Next week, and until further notice, there
will be but five days' racing a week.

Johnny Humphreys, who likes to beat the
favorites, was laying $23 to $100 against lu

Dan Miller's mare Charmion was sent to the
post yesterday for the first time in blinkers.
Dan, who is very sweet on his mare, backed her
as usual, but she acted rank and would never
"Doc" Turbiville, the California jockey, is
now riding for Green B. Morris, whose horses
are racing at|the Oakley meeting. The young
lightweight is receiving very favorable press
notices for his riding.
Chevalier had a hoodoo day yesterday. He
succeeded in lauding but one winner, which
hard luck was augmented by a $25 tine im
posed by the judges for showing young Bryan,
who rode imp. Ivy, how easy It was to cut a
horse off on a turn.
Judging from all accounts, both private ana
through rhe press, Starter H. D. Brown has
tuken Kansas City by storm, and is upholding
the high reputation he made in California as
a sturter. It is the opinion of a great majority
of the California race-going public that
"Curly" is destined to be the crackajack flag
wielder of the country.
When Eddie Jones took Monterey in next the
rail, shutting Roma off. the Van Ness colt was
struck and received a bad cut on the left ankle
from the Brutus filly, who was directly behind
him when Jones pulled in. The accident was
unavoidable on Chevalier's part, and cut
down boots probably saved the colt from being
Many thought because imp. Ivy had a stable
boy in the saddle the owner, W. C. de B. Lopez,
was not in search of coin, which was not the
case. Mr. Lopez stated that the boy Bryan ex
ercised the mare, and he was under the im
pression she would run better for him than for
a more experienced jockey. Exercising and
riding in races, however, appear; to be quite
different things, for the boy allowed himself to
be pocketed at the first turn and was never in
the hunt thereafter.
Ed Sachs, the owner of Tillie S, was very
much cut-up over the ride Piggott put.up on
Tillie Sin the last race. Ed said his mare was
good, and he and all of his friends got aboard.
Piggott certainly showed a lamentable lack of
judgment, for, told not to make the running
but to pick a good position, he got away well,
but began taking his mount back until when
something over a quarter had been traversed,
he found himself absolutely last, from which
position to win was an impossibility.
Joe Rose, the bookmaker, had a close call to
winning $500 from Johnny Coleman of the
Stuyvesant Club. During one stage of the bet
ting on the two-year-old Face, when the odds
against Don Gara were steadily being cut, Joe
shouted out "¥OOO to $500 Don Gara!" and
was immediately snapped up by Coleman, who
looked as tickled as a schoolboy that has just
swapped knives and got a shade the best of it.
It was not as sweet a 6 to 5 shot, however, as
the betting indicated, for Don Gara was given
the decision by a nose in a finish that looked a
dead heat. Piggott, who rode City Girl, the
second horse, was positive that he nosed out
the "hot thing." And so it goes.
The judges in the stand gave another de
cision at the track yesterday on the last
race that caused a deal of kicking. It was
a mile affair, for which Remus and TillieS
had the call in the betting, the friends of
the latter mare backing her to a standstill,
sending her to the post favorite at 14 to 5.
So numerous were her friends that Remus
receded in the betting from his opening
price of 3t01t016 to sat post time. Not
a few accepted fives about Jerome S and
Miss Garvin, while quite a delegation got
down on Road Runner at the long odds of
8 and 10 to 1.
Sent away to an excellent start Chevalier
at once took Remus to the front, holding
the field all the way and entering the
stretch with a lead of a length and a half
over Miss Garvin, with Road Runner a
fast-coming third. The latter very soon
passed Miss Garvin, and less than a furlong
from home apparently had Remus beaten.
Shaw on Road Runner now began taking
matters easy, when Remus again respond
ed to his rider's urging, and both horses
passed the finishing post under a drive,
with Road Runner's nose to all appear
ances in front, in the fast time or 1:41.
After slight deliberation Remus' number
was hoisted, which caused a yell of joy
from the brown colt's packers, and a howl
of derision from the supporters of the out
If Remus' nose was in front, it was not
visible to bystanders located near the
judges' stand nor to members of the press,
for from the press stand about as good a
view of his nose in front of Road Run
ner's was obtainable as a total eclipse of
the sun would be through a smoked china
It was a day's racing replete with the
usual mixtures, "good things," favorites
and outsiders getting somewhat tangled
up. Don Gara and Installator, the litter
at a prohibition price, were the only pub
lic favorites to finish in front, and the
crowd had a donation day to the men on

Qara carried a barrel of coin in the two
year-old race, a five-furlong spin, being
backed from 7 to 5 to even money. Luckily
he got a running start and it was needea,
for he was given the decision in what
looked like a dead heat over City Girl, a 5
to 1 chance, who ran a grand race from
where she got away. Spry L<ark, who had
been the contending horse all the way, was
a bang up third. The time was fast, 1:01%.

The Elkton stable's Monterey was a sup
posed "pipe" in the six^urlong handicap,
all sorts of money going in on him at
6 to 5. Bernardo, in very favorably,
opened at 2 to 1, but a stiff play soon cut
his odds to 9to 5. Roma received consid

Professor Gleaaon to Try for SSOO at
On Sunday afternoon at Central Park
there promises to be a very exciting ex
hibition of horse-training. Professor O. R.
Gleason, the Wng of horse-tamers as he is
called, has made a match with George S.
Switzer, a local horseman, for $500, the
conditions being that Gleason must break,
train and drive to harness in a four-wheeled
wagon, to the satisfaction of the judges,
three horses that Switzer will furnish.
They must all be driven in two hours to
win the wager. Switzer lost a similar
wager with the professor at the Mechanics'
Pavilion a few weeks ago, when he claimed
he should have w^>n and at best only lost
on a technicality* However, he says he
has left no stone unturned to produce three
horses this time with which to win the
Gleason, himself, has the utmost con
fidence in his own ability to subdue any
thing in the wav of horseflesh that can be
produced in California. With both sides
feeling confident of winning the contest
must be exciting and will be followed with
great interest by the sympathizers of both,
