Los Angeles Fishermen and String of Trout They Caught
Disciples of Izaak Walton Well
Satisfied with Season
of 1910
Local Casters Visit Bear Lake
Country and Return with
Full Creels
Trout ia a word to conjure by. You
nay awaken an angler to tales galore
If you but whisper the name of the
much-sought-after denizen of the cool
er pools and shady recesses of our
mountain creeks. There is no more
refreshing sport for the man of af
fairs or the man of leisure than the
pursuit of the game of [saak Walton.
Kxpert fisherman you may be, or only
a sorry amateur, with frequent trouble
In guiding your files away from the
overhanging branches and casting them
where they may do the most good, but,
amateur or past master of the .sport,
you will always remember the days
ppent in angling, the pursuit of the
most elusive inhabitant of the water, a
test of skill and a battle with a lively
prize, and the homeward tramp with a
full creel and a ravenous appetite,
i The 1910 season, starting out with a
rush, brought luck to many and disap
pointment to few. Barring some of the
trout stations where the beaten path
lias walked too) long, and a few of
the colder pools where the fish are still
spawning, the story has been the same,
"A great year for trout." Two of the
largest of the much desired fish, ex
hibited in a local sporting goods store
window, have exceeded any records of
the past two seasons, one being 28
inches and the other 24 Inches. From
the lust of the current month reports
have been favorable from all the fishing
quarters, and the game has grown in
favor thereby. Many of the more eas
ily discouraged, having experienced
their lirst curiosity pangs of the sport,
have now repacked their rods and reels
end taken up a recreation more depend
able in its results. The home pools are
no longr camping grounds;, and the per
capita baskets have therefore increased.
One Of the most popular of the local
trout resorts has been the Bear valley
country, nestled among the San Ber
nardino range and fed from the cool
springs of the highest of the western
peaks. A party consisting of inest
Klokke, Gus Knight, Adolf Schwartz,
Lee Garnsey and the latter's puff-wag
on set out shortly after the season was
under way for the San Bernardino fish
resorts and made a week of II around
the big creek. The course followed was
up the Cajon road, by way of Victor
vine, coming up on the other side, of
the San Bernardino range into the Bear
Lake country. Their stand for the first
cast was ii out a half mile below the
Bear i 'rek dam, and the nibbles soon
become bites. One day's angling
brought them the limit In weight, al
though they had a nunibi to spare on
the fifty limit. All v re loud In the
praise of tho Walton game, and swore
great oaths to forßake tin sad sea
waves hereafter for the open side of
the season and follow the reul side of
the sport.

and condemned by members of the Jef
ferson club, who unhesitatingly stated
thai they believe Mr. McDonald is do
ing this to prevent any other candidate
getting signatures in this district.
"This is Tammany trickery, and us
members of the Jefferson club we do
not sanction it." said a number of the
members of the executive committee.
Albert M. Norton, chairman of the
county ci ntral committee, in discuss
ing the matter yesterday, said:
"I have proof that the money for this
campaign is being provider! by Ividore
Dockweller and by the brewers and
liquor interests. They are paying lv
cents a name, while other candtdat
are not paying over 7.. cents a name.
Mr. Dockweller. I am informed, is pay
ing for the expense of circulating these
petitions. Just what their object Is
can only be left to the public for ln

Donald's action will cause us some dif

Determined Effort to Be Made to
Take International Cup
from Holders
Two CaHfornians. McLnughlin
and Long. May Be included
on American Squad
NEW Y/ORK, May 21.—American!
have evinced early this season a keen
and absorbing interest regarding the
details of the United States National
Lawn Tennis association's challenge for
the Dwight p. Davis international cup.
There are several reasons for this
desire to know what is being accom
plished in the way of sending- a worthy
team of representatives of this coun
try In r|iie»t of the world-famous tro
phy. The widening circle of lawn ten
nis Interest in this country is center
ing attention upon the executive cotn
mttti c of the national association. The
followers of the sport—and among this
number are thousands who never will
be recorded as members of clubs and
organizations in alliance with Die gov
erning body in this country— are be< om«
ins more inclined to hold the officials
n sponsible for any shortcomings than
heretofore lias been the case. They ba-
I lieve that no half-way measures should
be taken tip do all that is possible to
return the cup to this country, and that
anything short of real sportsmanlike
proceedings In the accomplishment of
this greatly deaired result la to he
frowned upon, ami If possible taken
into account at the annual election of
other executive committees.
Under the conditions which have sur
rounded the cup since the two peerless
Australians Anthony K. Wilding and
Norman K. Brookes—won the trophy
at Wimbledon, In 1907, Jt is a little
early to determine the makeup of the
challenging team, and all other impor
tant details, for the actual cup matches
ar away off at the tail end of the
year, in the last of November or the
first of Dec< tnber. It may therefore be
taken as a fair Indication of a deter
mined effort to strike a winning blow
for the rot 10n o£ the cup thin year
that it is now known that Deals C.
Wright, an American of wide experi
ence on the courts In both England and
Australia, Is to lead the American team.
Furthermore, the historic courts at
Wimbledon, London, are to be tin* scene
of the preliminary ties between the
Americans and thn British Isles teams,
instead of courts In thia country, and
that again the leading players of this
nai ion have refused to compete abi oad,
While, taken altogether, the results
so far obtained may not be entirely
■ ictory to the Ameri an lawn ten
nis followers, it must be admitted that
half the battle In the accomplishment
of most undertakings is in learning the
tatu: of the situation, and the
ians now i now » here they stand
in relation to this year's cup matches,
. The team musl be built up to Heals
Wright. Those who in the past have
, eriticl great American player
i i a willing to support him for his
generous wlllini ne to give ids time
and skill toward bringing hack the
■ trophy. The unfortunate .Id ■ of the
situation appears to be the Inability of
the top class of American players, not
ablj William .\. Lamed, thn singles
i Ion; William J. < 'lothier, former
champion: Frederick ''■ Alexander,
and Harold ii. Huckett, to take places
on tlie team, and so making it a
lerican, British isles or
trallan supremacy.
The majority of the players In this
country have supi le confidence that
Wright « ill work up to his top class
form rti spite the fact that last season
lie refrained from tournament compe
tition, mid In fact played only a limited
i mi of lawn tennis. Whether
Wright is übove or below par still rn
lo he demonstrated, and his
early tournament performances are
eagerly awaited.

September in a great five-set match on
the turf of the Merlon Cricket club at
Haverford, Pa.
In that contest the Californian dis
played unpleasant attributes of tem

criticised at the time and in one othi r
tournament Of the year Long man!
tested a disposition toward 111-consid
ered actions that makes him an un
ei rtain factor in a close and trying
match. Hia conduct In thlH respect is
in strong contrast to that of Johnson,
who has well learned ids lesson of
holding himself under control even un
der the most exasperating circum
moiui D, Little has been consjd

watched Little closely tor the last two

indeed there u> fi generally expi
belief that a Kreat mistake uill be
ni,ule if Little is included in the team,
md that ir lie is selected it will he
more because of past Klory than upon
his skill at the present time
The American ulayers eligible for the
cup team therefore narrow to Maurice

The two Californians and Wright
seem at the time, to be the program,
l with the possible nomination also of
: Wallace P. Johnson or Raymond D.
Little, as the rules allow of four men
constituting the team that may repre
sent a challenging nation. The two
Caltfornians under consideration will,
in a short time, begin the round of
. championship and tournament play In

at the Casino at Newport, it. I. From
reports from the Pacific coast bpth
have greatly Improved since their sen
sational debut here a year ago.
Optimistic admirers predict that the
foremost eastern wlelders of the rac
quet are to receive a rude shock and
surprise which will end one of the
Oalifornians holding the all-comers na
tional title. If either Mclaughlin or
Long can make good on such predic
tions, then the plans that ate making
for the American part of the Davis
cup matches can not be Improved upon
in any way. .
The important feature of the Amer
ican preparations Is that the team of
players who go out to meet the British
Isles teams on the Wlmbleton courts
know that they must bo- prepared to
journey on to Australasia In the event
of victory in the tie matches. There
