CALIFORNIA LION ROUND UP
An Attempt to Kill OS the Big Cats
Thnt Worry Arlioua Sheepmea.
John McCarty, territorial game war
don, has begun n bis round up of Cali
fornia lions In the fan Francisco moun
tains, about 150 miles north of Flag
staff, says a Thenlx (A. T.) dispatch
to the New York Sun. In that country
the bis cats are found In. larger num
bers than In any other locality in Ari
zona, and the party expects to bag
several hundred of them.
At one time the California lion was
found In all parts of Arlzoua, but large
territorial and county bounties have
caused its extermination In many dis
tricts. At ?20 a head bunting the
beasts was a profitable business, and
some hunters In times past have killed
a score of lions In a week. A total
of more than $100,000 has been paid In
Arizona for scalps in the past ten
years. Hundreds of Hons beside Lave

While the lions have grown less com
mon in the southern part of the terri
tory, there has been no decrease In
their nunilers in the wilder northern
regions. Sheepmen In the San Fran
cisco mountains have complained of
late that the lions were killing off all
their lambs. Warden McCarty has
taken the matter In hand, and with five
exierieuced lion hunters aud twoscore
trained lion dogs be expects to rid the
country of the iests. He will organize
with the cowboys and sheepholders n
large party which will scour the dis
trict where the lions are most com

The California lion Is n small species
of the pnuther family. It is about the
size of a Canadian lynx and possesses
a similar nature. It is cowardly and
has never been known to attack a man
unless cornered, but Is capable of a
fierce fight when driven to bay. Mc

'PRINCE AUTO'S" SERMONS
Von n x Man TnLri Tenderloin Ifab
llnrii In Ilia Auto to Lrrtorr Them.
Shortly before 11 o'clock on every
fine nisht there suddenly drops Into the
Tenderloin from just where no one
seems to know a handsome victoria
automobile and. sifter circling around a
bit, comes to staml iu front of the Uay
market, says the New York World.
The machine is an elaborate affair,
easily distinguishable from others of
its kind by a powerful searchlight In
the center of the dashboard ierated
by a storairc battery under the seat.
Suspended between the rear wheels U
a red lantern.
The victoria Is operated by n fashion
ably dressed young man, who Is said
to be the son of a wealthy western
clergyman. He has been sent east to
perfect his education, but he spends
more time with the blond haired wom
en of the Tenderloin than be does with
The machine hardly comes to a stop
before the word is passed through the
dance hall that "Prince Auto" has ar
rived, and the women flock about beg
ging for a ride. Picking out a woman,
the "prince" will escort her to the vic
toria, aud off they will go for a half
hour In the park, in Chinatown or on
Fifth avenue. At the end of 30 min
utes the victoria will slide noiselessly
up to the Hay market, and, handing the
woman out. the "prince" will dash in
for another companion. This per
formance will be repeated until the
dance hall is closed at 3:30 a. m.
The real name of "Prince Auto" Is
Willson Kayne. Little more Is known
about him. The same girl is never
taken twice, and the auto never stops
during the ride. As she alights each
girl Is presented with a box of expen
sive confectionery, which usually con
tains a slip bearing a Bible verse.
The "prince" Is jolly and entertain
ing and reliuetl iu manner. He always
urges the women to lead better lives.
He declares that he was never made
for a bookworm and that he would
much rather study human nature than
NEW GAME IN LONDON.
"Vint" Threatens to Displace Brldsre
Wlilit In Socletr-
The supremacy of bridge whist is
threatened by the advent of a new card
game called "vint," says the London
correspondent of the New York World.
It abounds in penalties and complica
tions and gives even greater facilities
than does bridge for Indulging the
irntiiblliiir instinct. The hichest pos
sible score Is "Pierpont Morgan," which
means 7,0110 points a trick.

threatened to exorcise tho bridge de
mon, but Its popularity with the kind
of people who gamble was short lived,
and It has now taken Its place as a
passion of the middle class.
