Although It will be many weeks until an ath

resentatives of ibe Olympic and Alpine clubs

The lollow lug communication from a popular

"The Olympic Club has found another promts ing
sprinter In W. 11. Phelps, who one day last week
ran 100 yards close on even time. Schlllerstcln
will have io look out or bis colors will soon be
lowered by Ibis promising young sprinter."
Nothing Much Dnlr-g at Present Among
Parson Davies, the all-round sporting mana
ger, has arrived with bis combination of ueck
twisters and carpet-tumblers. Evan Lewis,
"the straugler," Is the star of the troupe and
Tom Mclnerney Is the trial horse, who will
tackle all young men wbo aspire to champion
ship fan In wieslllDg. Lewis has quite a record
and Is looked upon as being Ibe tiger ot tbe
carpet. In January, 1886, Lewis and Joe Acton
met tor the tirst time In Chicago, Acton winning
the match. A few mouths later they wrestled
again, and The Strangle! came out victor. Jack
Waunup, the F_nellsb Wrestler, and Lewis met
lv Chicago for $1 1 'in a side, Lewis winning, and
Charles Green, also ot Kugland, went down before
tbe all conqu 'ring Straugler in a match for (200
a side in Milwaukee. Jack Connors, tue well
known wrestler, also leil a victim io The
Stranger's prowess lv a match for $1000 a side
at Pittsburg, and Lewis created a great sen
sation by defeating W. Muldoon at bis own game
(Giifco-ltoDiaii). In Chicago 111 July, 1885. Mul
doon claimed lo be out ol condition at Hie time.
Acton says that Lewis Is Hie most powerful
wiesiler lie has ever met, but that he Is not skill
ful. Tbe Stiaugler Is at least lifteeu pounds a
heavier man than the wieslllug teacher of the
California Club, and, as weight is a vei v impoi
tam consideration in a wrestling match, it Is
unreasonable to expect that Acton could suc
ceed In deleatlug Davies' champion. Acton says
that be Is willing to ny, and will wager
$500 that Lewis cannot put him down In
hall an hour. The combination Is booked
to appear In a series of exhibition contests, but
the spoiling class ol this ciiy bas become so
used to witnessing exciting scrapping matches
in the past lhat uuly the breaking ol a neck or
the gouging ol au eye will attract attention to a
wiestling pou;. Although the matches may be
conducted ou "Hie squtue" 11 Is very doubtful
11 the game will succeed.
The steamer State of California, which sailed
for northern ports yesteiday, had ou board
Charley Gleasou, Gus Browu and Jiminle Geo
can, the all-round alblele. Gleasou and Brown
go to Astoria, Hie former to become boxing In
structor of an athletic club, and (he latter to
liglu Scott, a light-weight, lor a purse of 1400.
Biown, it Is slated, felt sail at leaviug San l'ian-
Cisco, and he vows be will not retuin II he does
not succeed In whipping bis opponent. Geogan
has gone to Seattle In the Interest ot the Young
Mitchell-Joe Actou a 111 -tic combination.
ll Is said dial the Caiilornla Club will offer a
"test case" purse :o P. D. Skillman, the ama
teur runner, and a professional athlete named
Little. They have a giudge aud to settle the
mailer a couple of spoonful* of blood must be
shed somewlieie. Their lends say thai ihey
would give a very luteiestlng exhibition, as bolb
are In hue condiiion.
The matching of Jimmle Carroll and Andy
Bowen by the Olympic Club ul New Orleans Is
the chief topic of cuversattou In sporting circle*,
the general Impression being that Carroll will
have no difficulty In disposing of Buweu's claims
to championship honors. Bob Frzsiiiimons,
who accompanied Carroll to New Orleans, aud
will meet Arthur Upham at the Audubon Club,
Is almost suie in whip his man, so Ibat lv tbe
event of lbe two Calilunila Club representatives
proving vlctois, the club will bave quite a send
off as a retainer of champion,. Fitzsiminous Is
looking ahead wltb an eye to otber matches, and
desires to meet any middle-weight living, bar
joe McAuhiie has at last condescended to
wine to ins frieuds lv Hits city fiom Loudon.
He says in a letter just leceived thai be enjoyed
bis i rip veiy much, but upon arrival Id London
was surprised to learn thai theie was no match
arranged for htm. He was, however, determined
to have one with the Australian, even if he had
to follow him to his own country, He at last
succeeded, bul only alter lie bad conceded every
thing to his opponent. McAulilfe also says that
after f-lavin be will tight Jacksou. If that Indi
vidual is not In this couutry, he will go to
Anslialia and challenge him there. He is bouud
to have a return tight with Jacksou 11 It should
be the last ctlort ol his life.
A loner from Jack Dempsey states that lie will
remain In New York among lis Ii lends and prob
ably co Into some kind of business. - Jack adds
that be will never entei Hie ring agaiu, unless il
be to meet Geoige la Blanche.

Where Trout Egg* From State Ilntch
The many anglers who have been anxiously
awaiting the slocking by the Commissioners of
Ihe public streams adjacent to San Francisco
will be surprised to learn ol Hie many thousands
of Gsli eggs which have been shipped to this city
this summer from Sissou and Shovel Creek
hatcheries to geutlemen who are supposed to
own private ponds or streams. Although the
hatcheries are supported by State funds, It seems
that lbe State's waters have been neglected for
such streams and lakes as are leased or owned
by clubs or private Individuals.
The lish which bave been taken from Shovel
Cieek, which Is a tributary of the Klamath
Kiver, Is k nown as Hie rainbow trout. Last
spilng a unipoiaiy hatchery was eiected on the
margin of Shovel Creek, near its mouth, and a
tiap was coustiucted for the captuie of trout,
which dining tlie months ol May, June and July
ascend the stream in large numbers on their
way to the srawuiug beds. Tbe experiment
proved quite satisfactory to Commissioner Wood
beiiy, and. in fact, bad it not been for lbe uum
ber of trout taken Irom the cue!, this summer
there would have been comparatively Utile done
In the way of tlsh-hatching, as Hie other hatch
eries, especially Ihe ones lv the Slate of Nevada,
so to speak, ran diy this summer.
To keep Shovel Cieek well supplied with young
fish— although the drainage lias beeu beavy tills
year— several thousand young try from the
hatchery have been placed lv the creek. The
tuu of Dili up Shovel Creek having ceased a few
weeks ago the trap at Hie moulh ot the stream
wheie it empties mo the Klamath Kiver was
taken down mid the eggs which weie then in ihe
hatchery transferred to Slsson or lo private In
dividuals, who applied for them through Com
missioners Koutii'i* or Harvey. As the sports
men of this city who take pleasure In angling
are anxious to gleau some lulormatlon concern
ing the Slate li-ti hatcheries and how (lie eggs
are disposed of, a repoiter visited lbe Shovel
Creek Hatchery in Siskiyou County recently
ami was lurulshed the following memorandum
of the shipments of eyed-eggs made Ibis year,
April 28th, to Mr. la Motte, Gieu Ellen Hatch
ery, 100.000 trout eyed eggs.
In May and Juue, lo Slsson Hatchery, 950,

The san Kafael Water Works Company bad
applied for 20,000 eggs for Us lake, whicli were
to have been shipped last Tuesday, with 20,000
eggs which, Commissioner Woodberry stales,
weie Intended for ihe stocking of the head
waters of the Lagunitas Creek.
lv January last Ur. Woodberry received a
consignment of Eastern trout eggs (Salmo fonil
naies) Irom Hie Livingstone cold spring hatchery
at Charleston, N. 11, ihe greater part uf these
fouud their way luto the Gleu Ellen hatchery,
the remaining 4000 eggs were placed In Hie
hatchery at Shovel Creek and on the lsth of
June last the you Iry of tbls gamy trout were
given their freedom In tbe head-waters of tbe
sli< am, which feeds the rapid flowing waters of
As will be noted the majority of the eggs stripped
from Hie rainbow trout have been shipped
to residents of tins city or the adjoining coun
ties, It is presumed that a large percentage of
the eggs will perish, as It requires experienced
men who thoroughly understand their business,
to successfully undertake the handling of the
spawn while It Is In a slate of incubation. The
troughs lv which the fry are kept, while In the
sack, have tv be cleansed daily and lbe water
must necessarily be cold; the temperature must
not exceed 70°, otherwise deaths In Ihe family
are sure to follow. If ball of llie numbers of
eggs and liy which bave been shipped from the
strove; Creek Hatchery Ibis summer for the pur
pose of stocking ponds and streams adjacent to
this city meet with success, some good sport will
be had in two years hence near at home.
The trout on the Klamath Kiver have ceased
to rise to lite-, aud many of Ibe anglers who vis
ited Klamath springs leceutly, returned sadly
disappointed. June was an excellent mouth and
very enjoyable spoil was had by sportsmen who
visited ihe river. In August the "Silver trout,"
as they are teuned by the Kla mat bans, will be
numerous, aud as they run a few pounds larger
ou the aveiage Iban Hie rainbow limn. It will
require an expeilenced angler to handle them
successlully lv such a fast-going liver as the
Captain George Cummings. the well-known
spoilsman, has let timed wiib bis company of
stream- whlppers fiom a three weeks' outing on
the Williamson Kiver, which Hows through the
Klamath ludiau Keservation. The company
consisted of iho captain and bis son, A. M. Cum

The * sportsmen . report lbe weather as being

closely packed bales of hides were purchased by
a Ciay-sii eel merchaut. There la now very little
hope of a slop being put to the ualtlc for a lime

have been awaiting shipment lv the country will

The country papers have been taking up Hie
question of land leasing. Iv a recent edition of
the Nevada City Herald tbe following on the
subject appeared :
Fifty thousand acre-lot land have been leased In
Mum, County by some rich young men of San
francisco, with a view to making it an exclusive
hunting ground lor themselves. Another company
of spurts nave for years held under lease thousauds
of acres of tule lands bclweun Sulsuu and llenicla,
wbicb they use as a bunting ground, and from
which tbey rightly exclude any one from shooting
except members of the club. This fact has caused
several Interior papers to comment untavorably
upon such practices, and they ask tbe Legislature
to pass laws that will prohibit the holding of hind
by corporations. When the custom Is onto estab
lished that wealthy mon can gobble up fclaudl by
lease and stock them with lish and game tbey will
want i laws . to protect tbem in their rights, and
poaching laws will soon follow. - The __acrainento
Uee truly says that the people or the State of Cal
ifornia wilt not stand any poaching laws, and it
calls the attention of the coming Legislature to
this attempt to plant feudal practices on our free
son, to the end that its Infamy shall be nipped In
tbe bud, and all future attempts of the character
made criminal. >We think the journals that have
taken this matter* up are right, and tbat the Legis
lature should give heed to the v. .v inn,. - .-_*:";_•. .

We have organized a sportsman's club In Yreka

the zeal which he has manifested lv protecting our

Unfortunately, he has not received tbat support

In the eastern end or our county we still have a
number of bauds of antelope. Last winter the snow
was so deep as to render these little animals help
less, and In one Instance, a human biute, out on tbe
Butte Creek desert, took a pitchfork and went out
and stabbed ten. or twelve of them to death, merely
to satisfy his lust for slaughter. We tried to make
out a case against him, out be had destroyed the
evidences of his crime, and none of his neighbors
would testify against him, and we were reluctantly
compelled to abandon the prosecution.-

The poor clown who suffers the death
penalty twelve times a week usually enters
the ring, and after performing certain acro

fellows, for which lie is condemned to die.
He is placed upon the block, his head is

with a huge knife across the victim's neck.
In a moment all Is over, the cloth Is re

he carries it about under | his arm, places it
in a charger in the center of the ring, and
finally takes it back to the block wrapped up

the head has come to life. Not able to bear
the horrible sight, he throws the cloth again
over the head, seizes it, places it In its
original position on the shoulders of the
victim, kneads it to the body, and suddenly
the figure rises, head aDd all, and bows to
the audience— an orthodox clown. The
trick is a good one and takes with the audi
ence. The way in which it is done is ex
plained in the lower cut.
As soon as the clown lies on the box and
his head has been covered with the cloth,
he passes his head through an invisible
opening in the top of the box. An assist
ant inside of the box passes up the dummy
head, which is an exact fac-simile of the
clown's head and face. This is seized by
Harlequin, who makes such sport of it as
he sees fit. When lie places it by the sid9
of the trunk, in reality helpasses it through
an opening in the top of the box to the as-
sistaut within, who substitutes his own
head, which is painted to match the other
two, in place of it The other steps in the
performance readily follow. The cloth,
which the harlequin always carries, con
ceals all the sleight-of-hand, and the whole
performance is a series of surprises.
Another performance of a somewhat
similar character was recently performed
at a theater in this city, which a clown
throws himself on a sofa and is tent in two
by a harlequin. One part of the sofa, with
the body, remains in oue part of the stage,

in this case there are two men - similarly
dressed. The head and body of ' one of

What Says Huntington Regard-
ing the Coast Railroad!
On Saturday next will expire the time
given Mr. Iluntington and his associates to
decide whether they will accept the plans
proposed for the construction of a coast
line between Ellwood, in Santa Barbara"
County, and Santa Margarita, in San
Luis Obispo County, a distance of about
120 miles. If a favorable answer is not re
ceived before the above-mentioned date Ell
wood Cooper is authorized to reconvene
the convention for further action In the
If the terms are accepted the Southern
Pacific Company will receive £315,000 in
three annual payments, aud property for
right of way valued at 5100,000. The San
Francisco County delegates to the conven
tion are all confident that the proposition
will meet with the favor of Mr. Ilunting
ton and that work on the road will he com
menced within one month.
One of them said yesterday that he did not
perceive what excuse the Southern Pacific
Company could have for refusing to build
the road niter the offer extended by the
recent convention at San Jose. If it does
not make money on the venture it can lose
nothing, for by the terms of the contract
the company Is insured agaiust any possi
ble loss, and 5415,000 seems to ordinary
mortals quite a substantial inducement con
sidering that the road to be built is only 130
miles long, extending through a country
that is rapidly filling up with settlers and
capable of wonderful development.
ifigb officials of the Southern Pacific
Compauy are equally confident that . the
scheme will not meet Mr. Huntington's ap
proval. Before the plans were submitted
to him they were considered by three of
the officers of the company, whose opin
ions have in the past always bad great
weight with the President of the road.
They objected to this arrangement, and
their objections, duly engraved en parch
ment, traveled to New York in the same
envelope, which contained the magnificent
offer of tbe San Jose convention.

would not be able to enjoy it. :
The curious gaze of the reporter and the
business eye of the doctor discovered at
about the same instant a sympathetic move

evidently got a cinder or something else in
her eye. Auother lady was trying with the
aid of a handkerchief to extract the exas
perating mute, but with no great success.
The oculist watched the scene for a moment
and then philosophized thusly : "There are
