LONG BEACH, July 24.—(Regular
Correspondence.) Long Beach Is pre
eminently the family resort of all the
beaches contiguous to Los Angeles.
Several causes combine lo make this a
place where children may safely sum
mer and where families, may lead a quiet
home life, while enjoying the bracing
air of the ocean. TlXough the town chose
to disincorporate Itself In the past year,
it is still quiet, law-abiding and self
respecting. The various advantages of
fered to the summer visitor afford, a
means of culture In various directions,
according to individual tastes.
Those who are religiously inclined can.
gratify thir preferences in the camp
meeting and the various conventions
of Christian bodies that meet here every
The scholarly and studious visitor
may gratify his love of study in the.
annual gathering of the Chautauqua
assembly and. the summer school that
accompanies it and continues a month
after the former meeting closes. Chau
tauqua assemblies everywhere attract
the best musical and platform talent of
every description, and. that of Southern
California,z which gathers at Long
Beach, is no exception to the rule. The
instructors in literature, art, science and
music are professors from the leading
colleges and universities of the. state,
who find recreation in teaching by the
seashore during the vacation months.
But there are many who grow weary
of study, of anything and everything
that is the business of life, and for those
there is no place so restful, so sleep
inducing, so delightful to just "loaf and
invite the soul," as Long Beach. Here
one may pitch a tent in the soft sand, on
the ocean's very edge, or select a spot
under the trees facing the water, or,
better still, find a cottage or rooms for a
summer, sojourn and watch the white
breakers roll in on the yellow- sand.
The long, hard beach, that extends for
miles up seashore, as everybody
knows, is one of the finest in the coun
try for driving or for an exhilarating
canter on horseback. The shore Is a
gradual slope for a longdistance out in
the water, which affords a playground
for children that is incomparable. Noth
ing is so alluring lo the average youth of
tender years as water, and here he may
roll, paddle, wade or swim to his heart's
content, apparently without the least
danger. They may blister their little
noses and turn to the color of Palmer
Cox's brownies, but what a splendid
time they have and how rosy and happy
ar.d healthy they grow In the salt air
and the life-giving sunshine.
It is not the children alone who enjoy
the water at Long Beach, for it affords
the finest bathing and as good fishing
from the long wharf asthere isto be had
anywhere along the coast.
The pleasure fleet that anchors In
these waters furnishes line opportuni
ties for summer sailing around the bay
and for thos.e who desire to go out for
deep sea fishing. During the. season
sailing parties are daily and- nightly
pastime, and many a gay little- craft,
with flago flying and lanterns glowing,
may be seen skipping over the water on
a summer's night.
The pier affords a means of amusement
and pleasure to those who are fond of
angling for fish in the blue water be
low; to others who enjoy sitting on the
benches to watch the ebb and flow of
the tide, and yet to others who-are fond
of sitting at the fish stalls near the
water watching the small fry pulled up
by the pailful in a seine, to furnish bait
for the fishing boats that will sail out
to the fishing banks at night to bring
in boatloads of fish in the morning be
fore the gray dawn creeps over the dis
tant mountain tops.
A curious denizen of the briny deep was
brought In today to Will Graves' mar
ket under the pier by the launch Hlron
dale. The creature weighed fifty pounds,
and though called a sunfish, resembles
an animal almost as much as a fish.
It is the first one ever caught in this

The Bessie, owned by Will Graves,
brought in a big catch of fla-h today.
There were fifty-six rock bass that were
real beauties, yellowtail and barracuda,
in all 250 pounds.
A. J. Baker of Pasadena landed a 28
--pound yellowtail on the wharf today.
The Lolita broke loose from hermoor
ings and sailed away shoreward this
afternoon but was rescued in time to pre
vent damage.

ent proprietor of the saloon here. The

nent citizens.

land Jackson composed a party that
drove down from South Pasadena to
attend the Chautauqua assembly this
ular Correspondence.) Everybody was
busy at the Island today, preparing for
the big yacht race to be held here to

were industriously sewing drapery of
the white and blue colors of the yacht
club, while men were hanging it around
the veranda, wrapping posts, d.ecoratlng
the pavilion, nailing flags to masts and
the lamps on the long pier. White and
blue was hung wherever it would be
most effective for the gala occasion to
morrow. The cottagers will display the
club colors and all visitors are Invited to
wear white and. blue ribbons in honor of
the day.
The usual order of Sunday excur
sions will be reversed. Instead of going
to Catalina a party will come over from
there to Terminal island on a special
boat for the races and return in the af
It is expected that 2000 people will at

done to accommodate the crowd. The
Terminal Yacht club is a new organiza
tion, formed about two months ago, and
is composed of the gentlemen who make
their summer homes here. The club in
tend building a club house and a boat
house in the near future. Indeed, indi
cations point unmistakably to the con
clusion that Terminal island is to be, if
it is not already, the choice pleasure re
sort of the souther™ coast. One of th'!
gentlemen who has been active in get
ting up the race tomorrow la Gen. T. J.
Butler of Prescott, Ariz., who, with his
wife, has been stopping at the tavern for
some time. General and Mrs. Butler have

AVALON, July 24.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) Santa Catalina is and
should be the mecca of all pleasure seek
ers and those who come to California in
search of either health or amusement
cannot fail to And both on the "magic
Everything that contributes to the en
joyment of life is here. When a visitor
reaches the Isiand he leaves dull care
behind him and during his stay at Ava
lon- he realizes that although there may
be troubles behind him there are none
in front of him. He revels for the time
being at least in perfect happiness. His
only trouble is that there are so many
attractions that he fears he may have
to leave the island without taking them
all in. Those who enjoy fishing, hunt
ing or coaching are especially satisfied.
The waters around the island are full of
gamy fish, and Catalina may be stated
to be the anglers' paradise.
One of the many attractions isthe ride
to the top of the range of mountains
which form the backbone of Catalina.
The road winds around the canyons,
gradually ascending until the occupants
of the six-in-ihand realize that t.hey are
1300 feet above the level of the sea.
In the course of the ride many points
of special interest are reached and Mr.
Greeley, the genial holder of the ribbons,
gives every opportunity for the tourist
to enjoy the view.
Camp life In Avalon has Its peculiar
attractions. To show the jollity of the
campers here is an extract from the
rulesof Camp Avalina: "Everyone must
get up when awakened. Each one shall
drees themselves according to Hoyle and
shall not appear at the table bare
footed on penalty of being deprived of
fire for breakfast. Immediately after
first gorging time the parties shall go
fishing and the one found guilty of
catching a fish shall be instantly stran
gled to death by the chaperon and the
fish preserved In alcohol in memory of
the late lamented. On returning from
the fishing bout the campers shall con
sume about two hours and twenty-two
minutes trying to rig up In bathingsuits
and then proceed to the beach.
"The rest of the day shall be spent as
"First—Eating luncheon, breaking
dishes and keeping the neighbors In
misery until 2 oclock.
"Second—Fighting for the hammock
and lying around gloating till 4 oclock.
