ON THE PUTTING GREENS.
Though several of the well known Oak
land golfers are absent on summer vaca
tions, the Oakland Club is still manifest
ing considerable activity. Miss Dunham,
who is a fairly strong player among the
ladies, has returned from a visit to the
Kastern Suites. This afternoon there will
\if a ladies' tournament over nine holes, i
match play, on the Oakland links.
In i« recrat competitions on the links
of theTan Rlfael Golf Club for the Coun
cil's cups for men and women, two well
known names do not appear — those of Mr.
and Mrs. K. Oilman Brown. R. G. Brown
has been absent from the city for several
days, but will return shortly. The Coun
cil's cup for men was won by E. J. Mc-
Cutchen of the Ban Francisco Golf Club,
and the Council's cup for women by Miss
Alice Colden Hoffman of the game club.
The Decoration day handicap tourna
ment on the link? of the San Rafael Golf
Club brought out an unusually large num
ber of competitors. The "greens" were in-
condition, and there was little
wind to interfere with the players. The
ladles' handicap- over eighteen holes,
medal play, attracted nine entries, the
winner being Mrs. H. G. Bundrem. with a
i-core of 124 Jess 36— f*S. The prize for best
gross score was won by Mrs. F. T. Grif
fith, with a score of 105. The men's
handicap over thirty-six holes, medal
play, attracted fifty entries, fortyyfive of
whom actually .took part in the tourna
ment. Hugh Slay made the first eighteen
holes in i& and the second in i*0,or a total
of 185 for thirty-Fix holes. J. H. Nicoll
ves second with a gross score of 1S9. J.
H. Xicoll and W. W. Stevens tied for best

The N. G. C. Encampment.
Major General Dickinson of the N. G. C.
expresses the opinion that the division en
campment was not called off by the com
mander In chief on the ground of econo
my, which has teen assigned as a reason
for his action, but in consequence of rep
resentations of the health authorities that
have led him to believe that the National
Guard might, at a moment's notice, be
requested to enforce quarantine regula
tions. He declares that the only saving
by doing away with the division encamp
ment would be the transportation of about
six hundred men from the southern part
of the State.
Several new faces will be. seen on the
local diamond this week. Prominent
among them will be that of Henry Reitz.
the star infielder, who was with the Bal
timores when they twice won the cham
pionship of the i National • League. Reitz
has been playinp this season with jMII
waukea and has been doing remarkably
good work for the team. Manager Harris
is highly elated over his success in secur
ing Reitz. and he now thinks that* he has
a team that will play winning ball. He
will station Reitz at short, shift Riley' to
third and play Krug on the bench. : ;
. : The Oakland's will* also have two new
men. Ewing first intended'to fill Ham
mond's place with • Charley ' Drews, but
he has secured a much faster man, he be
lieves. In'* the person ' of Mangerlna, the
Los Angeles catcher, who made a great
hit in the tournament games: at Central
Park some years since. He has been play
ing ball ever since and" Is in first-class

been signed by Ewing, and will probably
pitch the 'Sunday game. The Oaklands

Richmond Wants Concrete Walks.
At the last meeting of the Point Lobos
Improvement Club a resolution was Intro
duced and carried requesting the Board of
Public Works to place six-foot concrete
sidewalks on all the streets and avenues
lying between Point Lobos avenue and
Lake street and between First and Sixth
avenues. At present certain sections of
the Richmond district have the old three
foot wooden sidewalks, which, being in a
rotten condition, are declared a nuisance.
President George R. Fletcher announced
his intention to go East for three months.
Oakland and. Local Nines to
Break the Ice of Defeats and
The tide of victories for the baseball
champions turned last week when Oak
land won two games of the series j with
Sacramento, the third played on the Oak
land grounds resulting in a tie. The rea
son of both defeats administered to the
hitherto invincible Sacramento team was
the erratic pitching of Doyle. Both his
performances. Saturday and Sunday af
ternoons, were anything but high class,
and the way. he was batted over the en
tire Recreation grounds in these games
with the Dudes caused strange misgivings
in the fanatics that held him in high
repute. ¦.* •
The second reversal, rather a sudden
surprise to all. was Uncle Hank's double
victory at Stockton. For many, a 'day
the local team has been celebrating a se
ries of unbroken defeats, and this ray of
gladsome light where utter gloom pre
vailed has aroused /he local team with a
portion of confidence. Then, again. Man
ager Harris is on the move to. strengthen
his team with famous old-time players.
The season is not so far advanced but
that with a timely pulling up the San
Francisccf nine might forge its way' into
the reckoning and be a party in the race
for the highest honors. ,
Oakland suffers a great loss in the de
parture of Schmcer and Hammond for

have been given good business, positions

The usual ante-chamlonship tourna

the Pacific Coast Lawn Tennis Associa
tion during the week. It resulted, as it 1
always does, In the selection of the courts
at San Rafael as the location for the hold
ing of the championship singles tourna
ment of the Pacific Coast. There has al
ways been a disturbing element in the as
sociation, and this year bore no change
in | the condition of affairs.^' After much
useless and ridiculous altercation the San
Rafael courts were finally selected.
There is every promise that the cham
pionship matches this year will be as ex
citing and interesting as they were last
The entries will be more numerous and
the competition strong. Of course . the
tournament -will simmer down to a con
test between the Hardys and the Whit
neys. George Whitney, the present cham
pion of the coast, will have to fight the
Hardys for the continued possession of
his honors and prizes. The Oaklanders
are determined to give hard battle this
year and wrest the championship from the
San Franciscan. With this idea in view
the >Hardys will 'go through a : systematic
course of preparatory training to be In
proper condition for the event of th<-- year
• The practice at the " California Tennis
Club has fallen off during the past week
on account of unfavorable weather. Next
week the real practice for the Fourth ot

The members of Burlingame Country
Club are already planning outdoor pas
times for July 4. The programme as
now outlined calls for a pigeon shoot,
and a golf tournament; The former is
the second contest for the Frank J. Caro
lan trophy won last y*"ar by W. H.
Howard, and is open to members and their
guests who have shot on the club grounds
this year. The affair is a handicap at
twenty live pigeons.
The golf tournament Is for the Ponla
toweky cup, which was won last year bv
Miss Alice Moflltt, the brilliant repre*
sentatlve of the Oakland Golf Club. Miss
Alice Hoffman is considered the strongest
candidate for the honors this year, as
Miss Moffltt will probably, be an absentee.
For the members and their guests who
do not go in for the robust sports of the
field there will be an orchestral concert
on the clubhouse verandah during the af
Bookmakers in Court.
Bookmakers Corhett, Crowley, Schwartz

close their establishments and confiscate

sented the petitioners, while Henry Ach

serted that there was no remedy for th.3

places where these varieties will be plant

the Commissioners report having 1,000,000
rainbow fry and 3,000,000 Tahoe fry (the
Mykiss) for distribution in the various
streams. This work will commence about
July 1 and will extend over a period of
three months. \
The Wawona hatchery has been a suc
cess during the past season. The waters
of Yosemite National Park will be stocked
from this hatchery. The Yosemite is fast
becoming a favorite resort of the fly fish
ermen, the lakes In the vicinity offering
them great inducements to test their skill.
The distribution from Ukiah hatchery
this season will be a record breaker. Su
perintendent La Motte has over 2,000,000
steelheads to place in the near-by streams.
As these are the native trout of the Rus
sian River watershed - the benefits to be
derived from their distribution should be
great in the years to come.
Sims, on the Upper Sacramento, attract
ed fourteen well-known fly casters last
week, the party staying at the Souther
place. The sport afforded was poor. One
fortunate angler took with a fly a Im
pound German brown trout from one of
the big pools. Both brown and I^ch Leven
trout were planted in the Upper Sacra
mento three years ago. The plant was a
small one, and upon the advice of several
experts on fish culture the Fish Commis
sion determined to plant no more, as the
fish. were paid to be more predacious and
less game than the native rainbow.
W. F. Bogart and A. S. Carman fished
the Sacramento in the vicinity of Slatonas
last week. The weather was warm and
the sport poor.
A. C. Freeman and P. J. Tormey fished
the Big- Stony, in Colusa County, last
week. They drove from Willows and
camped at what Is known as the "Pole
Gate." They found the stream high but
clear and report fishing exceptionally
good. Mr. Freeman affirms he saw more
landlocked steelheads in the pools than
were ever there before. The Big Stony
rises on Snow Mountain, Lake County,
and runs northeast through Colusa and
Glenn counties, entering the Sacramento
near Orland. It is the largest western
tributary of the Sacramento. The Big
Stony Is pronounced one of the best. If
not the best, brooks In the State. There
are several attractive resorts for anglers
at different points. Among the best of
these are the Goulding place at Stony
Favorite Lakes and Streams of the State
Will Be Replenished Wi£h the
Ford and Foutz Springs, some ten miles
up the Canyon from Stony Ford.
F. G. Sanborn and F. P. McLennon left
on Friday morning for Stony Ford. They
go in by Willows, picking up J. W. Shanks
at that point as a guide.
Stockton and local anglers have been
greatly interested in the arrests made at
Salt Springs Valley reservoir, near Mil
ton, Calaveras County, by Deputy Charles
Vogelsang of the Fish Commission. The
reservoir is one of the largest artificial
bodies of water in the State, being about
twenty miles in circumference. The dam
was built thirty years ago. Some four
years since the Fish Commission planted
300 adult black bass and 3000 small
mouthed black bass fry in the lake and
they have propagated remarkably. Some
large catches were made last year. The
people near the reservoir apparently do
not understand the law, which prohibits
the taking of bass between January 1 and
July 1 of each year. The arrests will go
far toward impressing them with the pro
visions of the law. The men were accom
panied by their families, but out of gal
lantry Mr. Vogelsang did not place them
in custody. One 11-year-old girl caught a
small-mouthed bass weighing two and a.
half pounds. When the season opens
some of the local anglers will test their
skill on the fish.
Tourist travel has already set in to Lake
Tahoe, and some fine catches of trout
have been made by trolling in the vicin
ity of Tahoe City and Tallac.
W. S. Tevis and wife have already gone
to the lake, having opened their beautiful
cottage on the lake shore near Tallac for
Attorney Charles S. Wheeler and family
left on Thursday night for the McCloud
River. Their new country house, pro
nounced the finest of its kind in the State,
is ready for occupancy.
The officers of the Chicago Fly-casting
Club have accepted the trophy offered by
the San Francisco Fly-casting Club for
competition at their championship tour
nament to be "held in August. The Chi
cago Club officials Ftill desire the donors
to name the conditions. As they do not
desire to do so it will probably be offered
the man making the highest general aver
age in all the events at the tournament.
These include distance, accuracy and deli
cacy with the fly and distance and accu
racy with the lure. The diffidence on the
part of the local club members In naming
conditions is due to the fact that they wilt
be. represented by W. D. Mansfield and A.
E. Lovett in the tournament, and they do
not wish 'to win their own medal.
.As Secretary Horace Smyth will not re
turn from his European trip until late In
tha present month the complimentary din
ner at which he was to have been enter
tained by the fly-casting club members
has been postponed until July.
Colonel C. G. Young will leave early in
July for the south fork of the American
River, where he win remain some time
enjoying the excellent fishing which the
George Walker sent two dozen trout
from Sims on Wednesday. The largest
measured fourteen Inches.
F. A. Foote caught fifteen salmon at
Santa Cruz some days since. The largest
weighed thirty pounds.

changed to be in accord with those gov
erning the "Waterloo. The stake will be
limited to sixty-four dogs, each member
of th« club being allowed but one nomina

but it is taken for granted that many of
these will not have a. dog <*f sufficient
"class" to be sent to the slips. The entry
' fee will be $50 for each do& making * a
total of $3200. It is expected that the di
rectors of Urfon Coursins Park, where
the stake will be decided. wDl add a like

There would also be special prizes for the

The prizes an the largest ever offered

winner In February last. The largest

In compiling the greyhound studbook
for the year the officials in charge find
many errors to be corrected. These were
all made gome years ago. ' when dogs
would run without registration, as little
attention was paid to that point. The
keeper of the studbook lived in Denver,
where all American greyhounds were reg
istered. Owners neglected their obliga
tions in this respect, with the result that
there are several dogs bearing the same
name. T. J. Cronin's Wild Xralee and
Rose of Tralee have their namesakes In
the East. The latter are registered, while
the Cronin dogs have never been properly
recorded. Sir Hugo, Miller's Rab, Ba
bazin and Tullamnre do not appear In
the stud books, although they were noted
dogs in their day. All these delinquencies
will be corrected in the forthcoming vol
