1 T. H. Arnold of the Western Golfer, pub
lished at Chicago, has recently been vis
iting the links of Southern California. He
pronounced the new grounds of the Los
Angeles Country Club as equal to any In
the Western States. They are pretty and
of natural rolling land, admirably adapted
to the game, the excellent management
of the greens forcing members to play
genuine golf. The earth-bunkers are pre
ferred to the barbed-wire fences common
on Easteyn links. The putting-grounds of
sand instead of green turf are disappoint
ing at first, but once players get accus
tomed to them, they find them attractive.
The sand putting-ground requires steady
nerve and excellent judgment, on account
of the roll of the ball, and so demands

The officials of Nevada have at last
awakened to the importance of seconding
the efforts of the California State Fish

nounced the finest on the coast, is chiefly
in Nevada. In the past the tish have not

forts of the California officials on their
I side of the line have been nullified. Fish
and Game Commissioner Vogelsang made
' a special trip there a few days since and

As a result they adopted resolutions i
reciting the necessity of protecting fish
in the close season, the building and main- •
: tenance of fish ladders and the prevention :
■of rnillmen dumping sawdust Into the
river. The resolution directs the District
Attorney, Sheriff and Constables to exert
every effort to protect the fish.
A "new fishladder has been erected re

near Verdi. The Fish Commissioners hope

have returned from Pelican Bay, where
I they spent two weeks shooting and fish

and the Sprague rivers, as well as Pelican
Bay. The latter Is providing the best
i sport of the season, but not so sensational
!as last year. The snipe and duck shoot

i killed thirty-seven snipe on the marsh in
i front of the lodge. They, also secured
I good bags of canvasbacks and mallard.

saw no signs of them.
The enthusiasts who went across the
bay or. Sunday to fish the estuary for

The net result for the day was three or

The important point in the proposed
amendment is the inclusion of rowing in
the list of sports to be controlled by the
Pacific Association, though the Amateur
Athletic Union, of which the association
is a member, exercises no jurisdiction over
oarsmen, leaving their affairs to the Na
tional Association of Amateur Oarsmen.
There Is, however, little doubt that the
amendment will pass, the matter having
been thoroughly thrashed out some
Last Sunday there was a large attend
ance of members at the South End boat
house, and several went out in skiffs or
barges. For the present the recently com
pleted handball court is attracting much
attention. The "Irish" barge crew is ex
pected to return from Manila by the next
transport. The Acme Club has promised
to pay $10 per month to the South Ends
as compensation for the loss of the barge
Qarfleld, which was burned In 1895 while
in the keeping of the Acme Club. A new
junior barge crew has been formed. It is
mado up of two skiffmen, a handball
player and an oarsman — J. Foley and Dr.
C. C. Dennis, Al Hampton and Emii

Commodore A. M. Clay cruised to Marin
Islands last Sajturday, returning on Sun
day to Oakland Creek J. Carrier last
week put his new yacht Jessie E on the
beach in the creek and thoroughly cleaned
and painted her for to-day's regatta. As
she is the smallest boat in the :!G-foot
class she will receive a considerable time
allowance from all her competitors, and
should Rive them a good race.
Commodore T. 1,. Hill made an early
start from Bausalito last Sunday morning
with a large party on board the flagship
Cygnus and dropped anchor in Paradise
Cove, l.ater he was joined by the sloops
Juanlta, Thetis and Catherine. The Cyg
nus and Thetis raced home to Sausalito.
t lie former having a considerable start,
but towing three boats, while the latter
towed a skift and carried a canoe on
board. The Thetis passed the Cygnus.
but the moorings of both boats were
picked up almost simultaneously.
l^ast night Commodore Hill, followed by
three or four of the San Francisco fleet,
which has no entries in to-day's regatta,
started for Vallejo, where he anchored
for the night. To-day the yachts will sail
up N'apa Creek to Napa City, and will
anchor close to the bridge. To-night the
Native Sons of Napa will give a reception
to the yachtsmen, and to-morrow the fleet
will start for Sausalito.
Last Sunday the burgee of the South
Bay Yacht Club was se.en at the main
truck of a boat anchored off the San
Francisco clubhouse at Sausalito. The
boat was the sloop Feu Follett, formerly
owned by H. J. Gorter of the Corinthians.
Auzerais and Smith, owners of the sloop
Papoose, were desirous to get a race
toward the close of last season, but the
boat arrived too late to start In the re
gatta of September ft, and no race could
be arranged for her afterward. This year
she is not entered in the Admission day
regatta, nor Is any other yacht of the
South Bay fleet.

■*■ This is on*, of the richest stakes of
the year, the iotal prize money being
11350. A commbtep made up of men rep
resented in the stake decided to withhold
$450 of this amount for a consolation
stake to be run one week from to-mor
The value of the prizes at Union Park
has spurred the Ingleside management on
to great efforts with the result that $1005
Is offered at that park to-day, making a
total of $3105 for which the dogs will run.
The most attractive feature of the
card is the Champion stake. In this are
such popular flyers as Connemara, Luxor,
Cavalier. Soubrette, Thornhill. Wild
Tralee, Kid McCoy, Jessamy, lwin City
Girl, Flyaway and Lawrence. In addi
tion to the big stake there is one for
non-winners, dogs that have not finished
better than third at either park during
the past six months. '
In addition to the Produce stake at
Union Park there will be an open stake,
for which $750 is offered in prizes. This
of itself would prove a good card under
ordinary conditions. When taken in con
junction with the big stake it makes a
marvelous programme. The dogs were
placed well in the draw, thus insuring
good sport throughout the various rounds
of the stake. Both stakes have a partic
ularly open look, it being a brave man
who "would attempt to pick the ultimate
winner. The Produce stake will attract
the attention of breeders the world over,
curiosity being excited as to what blood

have many stakes to their credit.
Three of D. J. Healey's dogs became
engaged in a fight while being exercised
recently. As a result Day Spring was
killed and Grenada sustained a broken
leg. The other nine dogs of the string
dragged their trainer along in an effort
to get into the tight.
Miller's Robbie has whelped seven pup
pies to For Freedom. The For Freedom-
Sly Girl youngsters are doing well. One
ot these will be the first of the great

run as a sapling, the others being saved
until they have attained their full growth
as they are too valuable to risk injury
to them. J
