Multnomah Plans First-Class
Testimonial in His Behalf.
There will be another evening of -wrestling
at the gymnasium of the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic Club Wednesday, Au
gust 2L' It has been arranged as a bene
fit for Joseph Acton, the wrestling in
structor of the club, by his friends and
pupils, and to show, In a substantial man
ner, th&ir appreciation of his valuable
services to the athletic department of the
organization. Further, it will be a testi
monial of their personal esteem for him.
Four contests, catch-as-catch-can, have
been -scheduled for the evening's sport
The main competition will be between
Acton himself and Dr. Wylie G. Wood
ruff, an amateur 'athlete of wide repu
tation. The others will be participated
in by the best of Acton's pupils.
AH the bouts, it is expected, will be
hotly contested, and every man will work
for a fall; each will be as much in earn
est as If the title to a championship de
pended upon the result of his efforts.
Each of the four events will be two best
in three. Besides the bouts between
Acton and Dr. Woodruff, welter-weights
Holbrook and McCalllg, lightweights De
France and Price, and feather-weight
Kahn and lightweight Sherman will
struggle for supremacy.
Joseph Acton is a really first-class
wrestler. He began in England, at the
age of 17, and in all his long series of
matohes has lost but two. This is all the
more remarkable from the fact that his
weight, while he was an active profes
sional, did not exceed 148 pounds, while
his opponents frequently weighed over 200
pounds. He has wrestled the best men
of both America and England, and the re
sult has been almost uniformly the same
There is no need to enumerate his long
list of victories. In fact, Acton is so mod
est that it is difficult to obtain from him
much, information in regard to them.
Perhaps his most notable match was with
the famous Whistler, in New Tork, in
the '50s. Acton weighed 14G, Whistler over
200 pounds, yet the "Little Demon" com-'
polled his big opponent to work on the de
fensive all through the contest. The
crowd repeatedly hissed Whistler for hug
ging the mat, but he refused to take a
chance and would not "mix it."
Acton has returned from Taqulna Bay,
where he went to train for a match with
Huhlln, which was declared off. The ben
efit of Wednesday evening was arranged
during his absence, and he knew nothing ;
of it until Informed by letter. He is nat
urally pleased at the appreciation of his
work for the club, and Is grateful to Dr.
Woodruff for consenting to wrestle at his
(benefit. He says he is in fine form, and
he certainly looks it. His weight is about
170 pounds now. he having broadened out
considerably since active wrestling days.
An All-Around Athlete.
Dr. Wylie G. Woodruff, who will meet
Acton Wednesday evening next, has been
a rosldent of Portland for only three or
four months. He came from Kansas City,
and is engaged in the practice of his pro.
fossion medicine. As an amateur ath
lete, he won fame during his four years
at the University of Pennsylvania, from
which institution he graduated in 1S97.
For four years he was left .guard of the
varsity team, and during three years he
was chosen to play that position on the
Ail-American eleven, whose players are
selected for individual excellence from

States. Perhaps no man better under

Dr. Woodruff. After graduating from
college he coached the football team of
the University of Kansas, which won the
championship of the .Middle West, without
losing a game. r
During 1S94 and 1895 Dr. Woodruff rowed
at No. 5 .with the Pennsylvania 'varsity
crew. In JLS96 and 1S97 he entered in track
competition, establishing the then Inter
collegiate record of 136 feet 3 inches for
throwing the hammer, and recording 43

However Baseball Notes.
The Portland nine bested Tacoma's
merry baseball men in the last series
played by our boys on the Sound. It won
three out of the five games contested.
Seattle was too much for the Spokane
ball players, and won three of the Ave
games at Spokane.
,Tho Portlands reached home las" Mon
day in a crippled condition. Delsel was
out of tho game during the entire Ta
coma series. He split his finger in prac
tice the first day there and was unable to
play here until last Tuesday. Meanwhile,
Tinker played shortstop. Weed was
brought in from tho outfield to cover tho
tVHrfi hnc. nnd one or the other of the
pitchers filled Weed's place. Grim limped
around with a bad ankle, due to a colli
sion at Tacoma; Brown and Muller both
wprn lame, and "Sammy" Vigneux's left
arm was pretty sore, where it had been
hit by a pitched ball. Altogether it was
a choice collection of cripples.
The home nine won eight of the 13
games played by it during Its last trip.
This Is considered a good record for a
team away from home. During their- ab
sence the Portlands played three error
less games and three games that lasted
longer than nino innings. They lost two
of the latter.
Several new players have been added to
the nines in the league. Knox, formerly
of Montana, is playing with the Spokane
team, and Nagel and McGregor, stars of
the Utah Xieague, have been secured by

BRIGHAM'S MEN SMASH RECORD.
"Win Multnomah Bowling Medals, but
Score Is Protested.
Two of the alleys at the Multnomah
Club are being repaired, and the regular
weekly bowling contest had consequently
to be rolled off on the only two remain
ing alleys. The medals were won by the
"Hoo-Doos," who did some excellent
work and broke the four-game record by
making a total of 788. Chairman Bailey,
of tho Multnomah bowling committee,
says that ho will not recognize this as
an official record, as It was not made on
all four alleys of tho club, but only on
two of them. BTlgham contends that tho
record should hold good, inasmuch as the
club had but two alleys in use at the
time, and the contestants had to bowl on
such alleys as were provided for them.
Pittock was the star bowler of the team,
and wrested the captaincy away from
Brigham, with a toUal score of 212 for
four games. ' Leadbetter also bowled a
good game, he making 204.
Sigler bowled the best single game of
the week, with a score of 73. Ho wasted
but one ball, while Maliory missed only
twice in the same game. Mallory's total,
however, was but 39, numerous "centers"
being responsible for the low score. The
hot weather and t"he limited number of
alleys had a deterrent effect on the bowl
ers, and as a consequence, only five teams
participated in the contest The scores:

and will be remembered as a man of
"There is a story going the rounds with
regard to Frank Villa, which, if true, is
somewhat of a joke. Mr. Villa is no small
man; on the contrary, ho was considered
large enough to play left tackle on the
football team of the university of Michi
gan several years ago, and has not re
duced in weight since that time. The tale
Is to the effect that he went home Sat
urday morning in a pair of trousers which
were built for a man who weighs 112
pounds. And this is the way they tell it:
"Mr. Villa had been in Portland and took
a sleeper on the home trip. At some time
during the night there passed through the
car in, which ho was sleeping a man who
was in need of extra clothing. It! is. not
recorded whose coat he took, but he got
away with Villa's pants. That is putting
it rather mildly, for inside those trousers"
pockets there is reported tb have been a
gold watch and other valuables. However,
these have no place in this history When
tho timo to arlso came, Villa arose and
went back to bed again.
"On that Pullman car there was a por
ter. That porter weighed 312 pounds. His
pants fit him and Villa wore those pants,
with additions made by the judicious use
of a.gunny sack. When seen last even
ing with regard to the truth of the story,
Mt. Villa denied it. However, It has be
como generally circulated."

in waters near Chicago, the wily brook
trout, and how best to catch him, is the
topic- on which he dwells at most length.
Although the small-mouthed black bass
is considered by many sportsmen to 'be
the gflmeBt fresh-wnter fish that swims,
he is not well known on the Pacific Coast,
and, therefore, Mr. Hough's remarks on
the trout, and the "pointers" he gives on
the respective merits of "dry-fly" and
"wet-fly" fishing for that elusive beauty
of lake and stream, will probably prove
of most interest to readers of the Sunday
Oregonlan. But here's what Mr. Hough
Fish Feel the Heat.
"The unprecedented stretch of hot
weather has driven the thought of mid
day angling from the minds of the aver
age fisherman. Indeed, one might as well
rema'in Indoors, as to venture the dangers
of sunstroke by fishing in the blinding
glare of the sun from a boat, or walking
even the closest and shadiest trout
streams in the warmer hours of the day.
The fish feel the heat as much as the
human family, and such exercise as they
take is apt to be in. the cooler hours of
trie evening or even after nightfall.
"With these warm days, indisposing one
to much physical exertion, the delicate
fly rod, with Its many-colored adjuncts
of artificial flies, is the angling tool which
best comports with the Inclination of the
fisherman. To be sure, the bait fisher
man who cast3 frogs along the shores of
the lakes late in the evening may now and
again get a goodly bass, yet the same fish
erman, if schooled in the arts of the fly
rod, might be able to take the same bass
Or another just as good, If a bit smaller,
by means of the artificial fly, wielded In
the proper manner and at the proper
"This warm weather acts on the natcn
ing of the ephemeral fly, which consti
tutes so large a portion of the food of the
game fishes. Even the black bass, and
more especially the black bass up to a
pound or a pound and a half in weight,
does not deign to make a meal of insect
nature, when the same is presented to
him in abundance sufficient to enable him
to feed without too great an effort.
Hcnt Affects the Files.
The heat of midsummer affects not
only men and fish, but also the fly it
self. . The caedis fly, or great fly (those
long and tender-bodied flies which we are
accustomed to call soldier fly, sunfly, etc.),
although It is hatched out from the sub
aqueous grub by the direct rays of the
sun, does not venture to take Its first
flight with Its tender and delicate wlng3
in the blinding rays of the sun. It waits
until the cool hours of the evening, when
the sun has disappeared beyond the fringe
of trees and the air is less blistering, to
essay its first flight from the water into
"Of a Summer evening around theshores
of many of our Wisconsin lakes theses
flies hatch out in scores and hundreds,
and as they rise from the sandy bottom
to tho surface of the water, they offer
the most tempting and most available
form of fish food. It Is then that the
black bass ceases to feed in midday, re
serving his efforts for the hour of sun
set, at which time the fly is rising most
abundantly. Pursue your bass at that
time with a capable fly rod, a long rod
and stout leader, and a cast of three
cork-bodied flies of the gray Drake pat
tern, tied on hooks not smaller than No.

nature of a surprise to you. Takes of

Tront FlsliinK at Dnslc.
"In trout fishing something of the same
rule applies, although stream fishing for
trout at this time of the year is apt to
be better than lake fishing, since the
grasshoppers are now abundant, and it Is
notorious that during the grasshopper
season the big trout go on the feed vo
raciously. None the less, even the even
ing hours are good for trout fishing, even
with the live grasshopper. It is at that
time that the-angler finds the trout some
times grown wise in their day and gen-
eration, and scorning lure presented to
them in the usual Interesting fashion. It
is a good tip nowadays to practice up
stream fishing, and If one can master the
art of the dry fly, so much the better.
"The dry-fly fisherman uses a lure some
what different from that of the wet-fly
fisherman. It is his object to present a
dry fly, with the wing cocked, much af
ter the fashion of the fly floating down
stream upon the water, and not sub
merged beneath the surface. The dry-fly
fisherman fishes up-stream, and for the
most part fishes the rise. That is to say,
he notes some spot where the trout is
rising to take the live fly. He approaches
this spot, either from the bank or by
wading in the stream below. His cast
Is made delicately, perhaps a half dozen
flirts of the fly In tho air before he gets
the distance gauged exactly. Then a
long and light cast so that the fly will
float down within a few inches of where
the trout rise. A few Inches either one
way or the other will fall, for it is as-
Portland Rowing Club. Again this
their recent successful work in
tonlshing how cl03e a trout will hang to
his feeding-ground, and how little he will
depart from that spot.
"The dry-fly fisherman, therefore, know
ing that a badly delivered fly will be apt
to spoil his sport, makes his first cast
with extreme caution. Perhaps, he does
not get his rise, or perhaps his fly is de
livered so far to one side or the other that
he thinks it is not observed by the fish.
"Now, instead of casting once again, he
flicks it back and forth, so that it will
float all the more readijy. If he has a
little piece of blotting paper and a bottle
of parraffln, so much the better. Drying
the wings with the blotting paper, and
dipping the fly bodily Into the paraffin
he makes an artificial lure all the more
impervious to water, so that it floats
quite readily. He will have to renew his
paraffin bath from time to time, and, of
course, he will make a dozen casts In the
air to the one which he delivers upon the
water. 'Yet now and again "when every
thing is working just right and his float
ing Imitation goes directly down above the
feeding trout, he "has the supreme re
ward of seeing the steady rise of the fish
and noting the flashing beam in the water
as it turns, and perhaps also he has the
yet keener delight of seeing the hook
sent home as he strikes.
"In up-stream fishing one must be par
ticular as to. how he strikes his fish.
More fish are lost in up-stream fishing
in the Instant of the strike than by fail
ure to strike in the wet fiy-flshlng down
stream. One should strike with a quick
turn of the wrist, of which so much is
written. He will hardly be able to strike
tnn ennn jifter seeinc the fish rise. For
it must be remembered that the line is

coming down stream toward the fisher
man all the time, and there is a big sag
in the line which must be taken up by
the force of the rod tip before tho
hook is sent home.
A Common Mistake.
"Many anglers make a mistake by strik
ing with an upward sweep of the arm.
This Is not necessary. The turn of the
wrist so that the finger nails come up In
front of ones- face Is quite sufficient to
move the tip of the rod through an arc
much greater than that of the hand itself,
and It is the tip of the rod which tightens
the line and delivers the blow of the hook.

stant Is one to be gained only by long
practice, although It becomes a matter ot
Instinct after one has fished a great deal.
"Curiously enough, as may be confirmed
by close observation on the trout streams,
it is not the largest trout which makes
the biggest splash, but quite the con
trary. It is the little fellow the finger
ling or yearling of not more than six
Inches In length who comes alter nis
floating prey in. the boldest and most
reckless fashion. Your big trout, if he
deign to feed at all, will feed so gingerly
that you would not know tlut he was
feeding at all.
"Try a spot some day where you have
reason to believe that the good fish are
feeding. He will not leave one side or
the other, yet hi3 keen eye notes overy
object which comes down his corner of
the stream. He sees the fly approaching
some feet above him. He knows precise
ly where it will come by and precise
ly what he must do to strike it Yet he
does not rush at the Insect with a leap or
surge, but, on the contrary, just gently
rises up, with scarcely a perceptible mo
tion of the flns and tall, and sucks the
fly In without making a visible splash
upon the surface of the water.
Afraid of Man.
,J,You .will see him do thi3 time and
again, and perhaps wonder why he uses
this extreme caution in his feeding meth
ods. Zet that be answered by any one
Who knows. Perhaps It is simply the
habit of self-preservation brought down
to a fine point. The big trout may be
bold among his fellows, but he la not
bold in regard to his greatest of all eno
mles, man, and he knows that the ex
tremist secrotlvenesa gives him his best
hope of safety. Naturally, you have all
the better chance of taking this big fel
low, if you fish for him in the dusk of
evening when the moths and millers are
coming down stream, when the fly Is ris
ing, and when, moreoi'er, the rays of the
sun upon the water do not disclose the
delicate outline of the fine gut leader
which you are using.
