July 1, 1899] d^j-e ^vssttev tmr» gv&ctstntm. 9 The recent arrest of Chinese fishermen who were catching small fish along the Alameda shore is a step in the right di- rection, bat only one little step. This basiness should have been looked after and stopped years ago- As it is, there has been in the past a serious oversight in neglecting to carb tbe bay piracy of tbe Mongolian tUh destroyers. The following item, depicting the vandal work of but one day, is a ample of what has been going on for years with bat rare and only spasmodic attempts at checking it. Special laws are on the statue books and general provision is made for remedial connty legislation, bat this seems to avail nothing for the preven’ion of such practices (and also many others equally reprehensible) as are here noted. "Deputy Fish Commissioners Davis and Cross recently had a hot chase after a gang of Chinese fishermen who were catching small fish along the Alameda shore. When tbe Mongolians saw the officers coming they scattered like quail, making the capture of all of them a difficult task. The deputies, however, chased the largest boat in tbe fleet and ar- rested five hard-looking Celestials, who were placed in Jul in Alameda. Their hulk contained thousands of sole and flounder, the largest of which was not over two inches in length." The gang of shrimp-catchers bagged in San Pablo bay last week bad in their possession two boatloads of smelt fry. Deputy DaviB, who has been detailed to hunt up and arrest all Chinese transgressors of the law, stated that there are at least fifty boats manned by Chinese, fishing for shrimps in tnis bay- Davis figures that tbe small fish taken by Chines* who are supposed to catch shrimps only amount to 150,000 pounds monthly. At this rate it would seem that bay fisb, such as flounder, sole, smelt, etc., are being pretty well thinned out by the Mongolians who have grown rich from the shipments of dried fish to the Flowery Kingdom. Tbe fisherman who tells you be does not care about the flsh he catches ib not to be believed, says that veteran caBter of the fly, Dr. Henry Van Dyke of New York. In the Jane Century he writes: "Never believe a fisherman who tells you that he does not care about the fish he catches. Be may nay that he angles only for the pleasure of being out of doors, and that he is just as well contented when he takes nothing as when he makes a good catch. He may think so, but it is not true, fie is not telling a deliberate falsehood. He is only assuming an unconscious pose and indulging in a delicate bit of self flittery. Even if it were true, it would not be at all to his credit. ‘"Watch him on that lucky day when he comes home with a full basket of trout on his shoulder or a quartet of silver salmon covered with green branches in the bottom of the canoe. His face is broader than it was when he weot out, and there is a sparkle of triumph in his eyes. ‘It is naught, it is naught,’ he sas, in modest depreciation of his triumph. But you shall see that he lingers fondly about tbe place where the fish are displayed upon the grass, and does not fail to look carefully at the scales when they ore weighed, and has an attentive ear for the comments of admiring spec- tators. You will find, moreover, that he is not unwilling to relate the story of the ca tureâhow the big fish rose short, four different times, to four different flies, and finally took a email black d^se, and played all over the pool, and ran down a terribly stiff rapid to the next pool below, and sulked for twentv minutes, and had to be stirred up with stones, and made snch a long fight that when he came in at last the hold of the book was aim- st worn through, and it fell out of his mouth as he touched the shore. Listen to this tale as it is told, with endless variations, by every man who has brought home a fish, and you will perceive that the fisherman does care for his luck, after all."

Recent charges in the county same and fish laws and now in force in Mario, 8anta Clara, Fresno and Riverside conn- ties are shown in the synopsis of game laws given with this issue of the Bbekdek and Sportsman. "Tom Colt" is ambitious for histrionic distinction, his rendition of a part in ”Tamed Oat," an old time but amus- ing farce given by members of La Estrella Parlor, N. D. G. W., last Saturday evening was a surprise to his friends. Field sports in the vicinity of Woodland at present have not the charm of great variety, imong the hunters the festive cottontail is offering the only mark for sport. These little animals seem to be quite abundant along the creek this year and though as yet the sport has not become the fad, those who have been oat report first-class sport. The National Pigeon Shooters’ Association recently pnr- chaspd forty-two acres of land at Qaeene, Queens Borough, N. Y. It is the intention of the purchasers 10 incorporate a new organization and improve the property by the erection of a number of buildings. A number of wealthy sporting men of New York city are said to be back of the enterprise. The price paid is reported to have been $800 an acre. County officials of late seem to he imbued with the nec- essary stimulus to pay attention to the letter of the law as well as the popular sentiment in relation to game protection. Arrests and fines after conviction have been the results in cases in Marin, Santa Clara and Mendocino counties re- cently. Let the good work go 00, for the sooner an under- standing as to tbe certain punishment of game law violators is widespread the sooner will there be a general and whole- some respect for and observance of the law. Bernie Devlin, a prominent basiness man and ex-city father of Benicia, attended the live bird shoot at San Clemente last Sunday. He is not only an excellent trap shot, bat a rare expounder of the goBpel of good fellowship As a referee in a pigeon match be shines with an incan- descence of wisdom that places Solomon in the "has been" cIbes. A three bird race was arranged between D Ravman Schaliz aod Narrv A. Wands, Devlin waB the referee Each mao scored two birds; Schaltz missed his last bird and Wands stepped to the score with a chance to win or tie. he missed with his first barrel but brought the bird down with the sec- ond; the pigeon, badlv wounded, in fluttering about in the grass and before it could be retrieved, disappeared in a squir- rel holeâas the shooter turned to the referee bis manner indicated expectation of a favorable decision, bat Bernie palled bis waich and quietly suggested that Wand get a spade and retrieve the bird in limit time or the bird would not be scored. Expostulation aod inquiry only elicited the statement tbat Devlia was the referee and he "would have no outside interference." Wben time was ap he decided the bird lost and the match a tie, at the same time penalizing the shooters to the extent of a tflglHrioi Innch at the ferry. A creditable piece of pistol target work was the perform- ance of J. E. Gorman last Sunday at Shell Mound Park, in which the world’s record was tied. Gorman tied tbe record which has been held for a number of years by E. E. Part- ridge of the Boston (Mass.J Rifle Association. His first ten rounds aggregated 93. He was at hia best in the second ten, ecoriog 96. The third ten footed up 92. his fourth went np to 95, but the last half score fell to 89. F. H. Bashnell, out of a possible 300, made 234. In the team shoot between Captain Bushnell’s marksmen and Captain Gorman’s the former won easily. Followirg are tbe scores of each side re- spectively; F. H. Basbnell 208, E. N, Moore 191. J. A. Ricker 193, O Bremer 204. In tbe second team J. E. Gor- man scored 216, D. W. McLaughlin 199, C. M. Henderson 188, F. H. Belnap 156. At the Traps. The live bird attraction to-morrow will be the California Wing Club shoot at Iogleside. A side issue of this shoot will be the match between Otto Feudner and A. M. Shields for the Olympic live bird challenge medal; Feodner who won the trophy from Dr. Barker on the 18:h inst. having been challenged by Mr. Shields. Both gentlemen have been shooting in fine form recently. If the handicap conditions favor the challenger a tithe more than the committee deem reasonable, Feadner will have occasion to shoot at bis best to retain possession of the medal. At all events the race will be worth witnessing. The blae rock events to-morrow are two, one of which will be the regular meet of the Reliance club on the Web- ster street grounds, Alameda; the members of which clnb have been doing some commendable trap york since the beginning of their season. The Alert Gun Club are scheduled to have their regular shoot at Birds Point* Alameda.

Tbe principal event of the day, the clnb race at twelve birds, brought oat twenty-foar men on the shooting score In ibis event Clarence A. Haight and C. Shaw were the high gone. Eight shooters were second with eleven kills each. A s:de pool in the club race paid the two high guns $7 escb. the eleven men in tbe pool divided third money. Ten rack scores were shot up, the results in the two six bird races be- ing taken for the records lacking to make a fall complement of scores. The general shooting during the day was a credit- able showing. In the afternoon a strong wind blowing across the traps made the shooting most difficult. In a pre- liminary six bird race. $1 entrance, sixteen shooters entered. The pool was divided by Feadner, Daniels, Haigbt, Jastins and Jackson on straight score0.
