Reports From Northern Part
of the State Say Sport Is
Better Than in Many Years
Run of Salmon Has Ceased
at Santa Cruz.. Monterey
and Capitola for Season
The fishing season this year bids fair
to break all records both for the quan
tity and quality of the fish that are be
ing taken daily by the anglers. Dur
ing the last week reports from the
northern part of the State have lured
many away from the cares of the city,
\u25a0while those who have Intended to make,
but short stays have decided to stick
while the sport continue* so good.
The upper Sacramento River is a
mecca for anglers at the present time.
The trout are running there as they
have not run in years and every day
splendid catches are reported. The
weather there Is about right for trout
and bids fair to hold out for some time
to come.
Around Shasta Springs the best
catches are being made. Floyd Judah
of the Southern Pacific has been fish
ing there for several days and has been
sending many boxes of choice trout to
his friends in this city. Judah manages
to hook as high as forty fine trout a
day. He took several on files that went
as* heavy as two and a half pounds
each. He says the best flies are the
royal governor, Yosemite. royal coach
man and gray and brown hackle. The
spoon may also be used there with good
Fishing along the Truckee River is
the best in years. Many anglers made
the trip there last week and they all
reported the sport to be the finest they
ever experienced in that section of the
country. The supply this season seems
inexhaustible, having held out so far
without the slightest signs of let
ting up.
The best catches of trout are being
made above Boca. At the present time
workmen are engaged in cleaning an
ice dam below this place and as this
makes the water muddy the trout arc
all- beading for the clear parts of the
river several miles north of the dam.
The best flies there are the Cahill, blue
upright and shane.
Jeff Wells. J. Fountain and Joe Do
ber are having all kinds of good luck
there. They are all stopping at Boca
and 6ay that every time they want a
mess of fish all they have to do is to
make a trip above, the ice dam and
cast their lines.
Salmon are beginning to run along
the McCloud River and fly fishing will
be slack there for a while. When the
salmon spawn the rainbow trout fol
low them and eat the spawn. Conse
quently they will not take flies except
in the early morning and late Jn the
evening and even then it is hard to
land them.
The sport at the Big Meadows con
tinues good. Sam Wells is still there
and reports excellent luck. He says
the trout are taking grasshoppers and
also hair lug flies. Big Springs, Ham
ilton Branch and Spring Branch are at
tracting many fishermen and the trout
are running well at these places.
Ballards Lake is still good for black
bass. Many large catches have been
reported there during the last week.
K. J. Kaplan, accompanied by his wife
and daughter, are at Hilton on the Rus
sian River. Kaplan is hooking the
fish in rapidly and last week sent down
several boxes of nice ones to friends
in this city.
The San Francisco Striped Bass Club
will give an outing at Lake Merritt to
morrow. Charles Breindenstein will
Tie the official chef. Doc Watt will act
sis master of ceremonies and Joe Uri
will preside as head man at the big
feed. Lively doings are promised.
The run of salmon at Santa Cruz,
Capitola and Monterey has about
stopped. The sport there held out very
well for several weeks, but It is over
now for the season.
Next month good sport is promised
at the mouth of the Soquel Creek, near
Capitola, when the steelhead commence
to run. Already many anglers of this
city are getting ready for the opening.
•The bass fishing in and about the
local bays and lagoons^has been very
poor for a couple of weeks past on ac
count of the bad weather. Th« buss
will not come to the surface while the
fogs and winds continue and there has
been many a disappointed fisherman
seeking them last week. Should the
weather loom up warm next week good
sport is assured In this line.
During the past two months- about
600,000 trout have been distributed by
Game Warden Reed in the streams of
Santa Cruz County. There are over
400,000 fry still at the hatchery to be
distributed In the other streams of the
county, making about 1,000,000 this
It Is proposed to have the adjoining
counties get the benefit of the hatchery
by paying toward its support and then
getting their share of the fry.

CHICAGO, July 28.— The yachting sea
son will reach Its climax when the fleet
of the Chicago Yacht Club and the repre
sentatives of the Detroit and Cleveland
Yacht clubs cross the lines to-morrow
afternoon In the start of the long cruis
ing races, the former at Chicago, the
Litter at Port Huron, both bound for
Macklnac Island. Four splendid schoon
ers, evenly matched and well represent
ing the two types of craft popular on
fresh •water, a half dozen powerful cruis
ing yawls and several racing sloops will
race In their respective classes with ten
minutes between the classes.
The distance is 340 miles and it was
covered last year In thirty-two hours,
running before a southerly gale. Very
high seas were running- at the north end
of the lake and there were many acci
dents to spars and rigging. It is not
thought probable that this record will be
equaled this year, although there are
Indications that there will be plenty of
wind. 6s$QPKBUHlfeORfi
The only limitation of rig Is the barring
of club topsails. . The closest race will
probably be between the four schooners,

Commodore T. Jennings Will
Lead a Fleet of Yachts
to Petaluma Bridge To-Day
Yachtsmen Are Beginning
to Make Ready for the
Big Race on Admission Day
Commodore T. Jennings' flagship
Speedwell, accompanied by a fleet of Co
rinthian yachts, will cruise this after
noon and evening to Petaluma draw
bridge As the tide begins to flood at
3 this afternoon at Fort P&int. it serves
well for a run up the bay. The annual
up-river cruise of the San Francisco
Yacht Club having ended last Sunday,
to-day and to-morrow are open dates on
the programme of the Sauaalito tars, but
many of the yachtsmen will take ad-
vantage of the favorable tide and will
run up the bay to Paradise Cove, Marin
islands or McNears Landing. The tide
ebbs from 11: IS a. m. to 3:48 p. m. to-mor
row at Fort Point, so that a return to
moorings in good season is assured.
The flagship Challenger returned to
Sausallto last Sunday from her annual
up-river cruise, which was much enjoyed,
the yachtsmen finding plenty of water in
the river, good breezes and few mosqui
toes. Starting from Sausalito on Satur
day the Challenger, Ariel and Merope
made Army Point that night and Isleton
on Sunday. On Monday the yachtsmen
reached Walnut Grove, where they stayed
till Wednesday, proceeding to Courtland.
After cruising around Courtland, the
yachts returned to Walnut Grove on
Thursday, Holm and Rousseau in the
slocp Merope sailing to Napa. On Friday
the Challenger went to Toland's Landing
and next day to Vallejo, making moor
ings at Sausalito on Sunday. The sloop
Ariel, with A. C. Lee and party on
board, continued their cruise up the river
and -reached Sacramento. It is expected
that the Ariel and Merope will return
to Sausalito to-morrow. The yawl Gyp
sie of the California Yacht Club has been
on a cruise up the river, dropping anchor
at Sacramento. She will probably return
to Oakland Creek to-day.
The race of the California Yacht Club
for the Wallace trophy, of which the
Floop Thelma is the present holder, has
not been held this year, J. J. Sherry's
new racing machine, Perhaps, and T.
Kendall's sloop Alert, two of the princi
pal contestants, having met with mis
haps. It is expected, however, that the
regatta committee will make arrange
ments for the annual race to be held
Yachtmen are already beginning to
think of the annual regatta of the Pacific
Interclub Yacht Association on Admis
sion day. Commodore W. G. Morrow has '•\u25a0
appointed ' Roy C. Ward, Dr. L. P. Rlx
ford and H. G. Toll the regatta cpmmlt
tee to reoresent the San Francisco Yacht
Club as delegates to the association. The
directors of the Corinthian Yacht Club
have appointed T. J. ICavanagh, F. E.
Schober and M. J. Brennan as their dele
gates. P. J. Wenljcer and Carl A. Sle
brand have been appointed delegates of
the Vallejo Yachting and Boating Club.
The California and South Bay Yacht
clubs remain to be heard from. The an
nual meeting to wind ud the affairs of
the association and organize the new
body will be held soon. It is probable
that the alteration of the rules with re
gard to the annual races for the Mac
donough cup will be discussed but that
the matter will remain unsettled. '
There is talk of a cruise to Santa Cruz
early next month to be made by the
schooner White Wings, the sloops Nixie
and. Meteor. The crew 'of the White
Wings mar consist of Charles Morrell,
J. M. Patrick, Carl Westerfeld. J. C.

Pocatelli and Humboldt Are
Matched in the Grand Na

Lively Sport Is Promised
in Even-Looking Stakes
at the Two Rival Parks
After, numerous delays, the great Na
tional Championship stakes will soon be
run at -Union' Coursing Park. Next Sun
day Pocatelli and Humboldt arc carded
to compete in the first event; scheduled.
This race has been postponed 'several
times on account of injuries to, Hum
boldt. but now the hound is in great
shape and ready to put up the race ot
his life against the speedy Sacramento
Coursing men have been looking for-
ward to this great race for . many ]
months past and the interest it has
awakened bids fair to make it one . of*
the contests of the year on the sward.
There are admirers galore of each dog
who are willing to- bet their money on
the chances of their favorite and there
fore the wagering on the contest looks j
like a pretty even proposition.
The stakes will consist of the best three
out of five trials. The wise ones look for
Pocatelli to wade in and take the first
course from Humboldt, as the former
dog is full of dash and vim and always
starts off with a rush. But Homboldt is
a game hound who can go the routeand
his backers think he . will manage to
outstay his brilliant opponent and bring
home the monejs in the long run. .
On the following j Sunday Freeport arid
Agile Spurt will meet the second , con
test of the series.. Following this" con
test Mr. Zlgnego and Rocked Asleep are
carded to run and then comes Richard
Anton and Panoche in the final race of
the series. These ; eight dogs are about
the speediest now in action, on the Pa-"
clfic Coast, so the trial will \u25a0"' surely be
worth going miles to see.
The card for to-morrow at Union con
sists of three stakes with a well balanced
entry list of fleet hounds. In the spe
cial stake, PanOche= bids 'fair, to rule the
favorite, while - L L C and Fiery Rock
will break' about even in the pickings
for the winner in the class reserve event.
The entries . in the reserve stake are so
evenly balanced that it [will be about a

May Sutton and Her Clever
Sisters Will Be Seen on
the ' San Rafael Courts
Percy Murdock Is the Only
Veteran Who Will Take
Part in the Tournament
No tennis tournaments of any im
portance will be played on the local"
courts until the annual coast champion
ship events begin. As usual these, the
biggest events of the year, will be
played^ on the Hotel Rafael courts at
San Rafael. The presence of May Sut
ton, champion of the world; her clever
sisters and the best male talent from
the southern part of the State will
make this season's events the moat in
teresting held in years.
Of course, the women's champion
ships will all go to the Suttons. There
are some fairly clever young ladies in
this part of the State, but they are
completely outclassed by the Sutton3.
It is now assured that May SuUon will
be here to defend her title, as she will
return in time. It is expected the
Misses Violet and Florence Sutton will
be in the competitions.
The bay counties will not be as well
represented as in the past and the
chances are the honors will go south
this year. Players are just as numer
ous here as ever and probably more so.
but there is a lack of class. Murdock is
the only veteran among the Vocal play
ers and aside from him the local en
thusiasts will have to pin their faith
to such men as Adams, Gardner and
Rolfe. Murdock will have to do better
than he did in the last two champion
ship events if he hopes to defeat the
visitors from the lower part of the
State. The other players / named are
uncertain quantities. Adams and Gard
ner will surely have a chance with any
of the entrants. Bell will not partici
pate and MacGavin will not be here
to defend. A new champion will be de
veloped and the event has such an open
look that all of the young cracks cher
ish fond hopes of annexing the coast
championship title.
The tournament committee for the
San Rafael tournament held an Im
promptu meeting during the week and
arranged the order of events. Chair
man R. T. Crawford. Percy Murdock
and Grant Smith were present and ar
ranged the following schedule: Men's
singles, September 2 and 4; women's
singles. September 5; men's and
women's doubles, September 6; mixed
doubles, to be announced on the courts;
finals of men's doubles, September 8;
challenge match, women's doubles, Sep
tember 9 at 10:30 a. m. : championship
match, women's singles. September 9 at
1:30: finals men's singles, September 9
The final rounds of the first handi
cap doubles tournament for the new
three-time cups will be played on the
park courts to-morrow. In the semi
finals the following teams will meet:
Harold Gabriel and A- H. Brabant (owe
3-6) vs. Harry Rolfe and Clarence
Griffin (owe 15); George Baker and
Charles (owe 15 3-6) vs. George Janes
and Herbert Long (owe 15 3-6). All
four teams are below scratch and are
evenly matched. The three remaining
matches should be close and interest
ing and fast exhibitions.
Local players are taking an unusual
Interest in the championship' tourna
ment at Portland because of the fact
that George Busch of the California
Club has worked his way almost to the
semi-finals and has not as yet lost a
set. Busch was in fine condition when
he left here and it woftld not be sur
prising if he won the championship.
Proposed Koadnnr to' Baa Past the

Though it was generally supposed
that a meet of the Automobile Club of
California would be held at Del Monte
during the month of August, na ar
rangements have been made for a tour
nament there or anywhere else up to
the present time. The matter ha 3 been
discussed bx' the executive committee
of the Automobile Club of California,
and a decision will b« reached shortly.
Del Monte and San Francisco have been
suggested as places where a race meat
may be held.
It is likely that work will soon b»
begun on the boulevard, for auto
mobiles and light vehicles only, from
San Francisco into San Mateo County.
The directors of the Automobile Club
of California are trying to obtain 350
subscriptions of $100 from those whom
a good road would benefit. As the
rights of way have been secured and
the line to bo followed by tha boule
vard settled, all that 1« needed to
carry out the work ls»tha money. The
Supervisors have $17,500 available for
the extension of Nineteenth avenue la
a southerly direction past the new
house of the San Francisco Golf and
Country Club at'lnglealde to the boun
dary line of San Mateo County. Tha
new boulevard will begin at this point
and will pass through the property of
the Spring Valley Water Company and
parallel to the track o£ the Southern
Pacific Railway to School street, along
which It will run west to tha county
road, thence south to Market streat.
Colma; along Market street for a few
blocks 'and thence In a southeasterly di
rection through tha property ,of tha
Crocker Estate Company between San
Bruno avenue and the cemeteries.
The road will cost $35,000, and aftar
construction will be maintained by San
Mateo County. Suscribers may make
their checks payable to R. P. Schwerln,
president; L. P. Lowe. S. C Buckbee.
I c. C. Moore or Thomas Magea Jr.. dl
! rectors of the Automobile Club oj
I California, under whose management
I the money will be expended. If the
t necessary amount ls^not subscribed by
the middle, of next month the project
will be dropped. The proposed boule
vard will be of value not only as afford
ing a pleasant way of getting out of
San Francisco, but also as a standing
example of good road-making that will
cause the. community to • insist upon
greater expenditure In the construction
and maintenance of good highways.
