"We pledge our help! Every day the waters of the bay are alive with bathers, whose delight in a ~wim in the quiet waters is very evi- dent. The latest word from Mr. and Mrs. E. Windle was to the effect that they were just leaving Shasta Springs for Portland, Oregon. Bon voyage. Harry Diffin is grading his lot, on the West Side Terrace, between Hill street and the stage road, preparatory to the early erection of a home there- on. The mornings and evenings are cooler--indicative of the presence of the fall season, in many respects the Pleasantest of the year on Catalina Is- land. Come and try it. JuSging by the report of the com- mittee on community nurse, made to the Parent-Teacher Association Thurs- day evening last, there is some educa- tional work needed along tfiat line in Avalon. Register NOW for the presidential election, every one who desires to vote on November 4th should register this week. Don't put it off or you may lose your vote. And did you ever think of it, that your vote might determine the result of the election? Register NOW Preparations for the commencement of work on the large Wrigley reser- voir at the Summit will probably be completed this week. This will be the final link in the system bringing water from Middle Ranch canyon springs. It will have a storage capacity of mil- lions of gallons. Two large delegations of visitors ar- rived Saturday. About a hundred and fifty rooters came over with the West- inghouse baseball team, while some 275 Masons from Hollenbeck" Lodge, Los Angeles, came over to visit Catalina Lodge. The visitors brought a candi- date with them, and put him through the regular ceremony. ORE FROM BLACK JACK Work of development in the lead and silver mine at Black Jack is being pushed by Foreman Andy Norman, who has six men in his crew. Already the main tunnel has been driven in a distance of 230 fe~t, while side drifts along the veins of ore are made there- from. Some sixty tons of ore have already been shipped across the chan- nel. This, together with about forty torts additional, will be shipped to the Selby smehing works at San Francisco for a test run. Sanlple assays have run up to over $200 per ton. In order to conveniently handle the product from the mine a road has been run up Cape Canyon front Mid- dle Ranch. This road is four and one- half miles in length. The ore is ;aken from the tunnel up an incline to a dump, where it is sacked for transpor- tation. The sacks average about 112 pounds, and the man who handles them has developed his arm muscles materially. If you think otherwise, just feel of Charley Hammond's biceps in his arms. Four round trips a day from Avalon to the mine are generally made. The result of the bulk test is being awaited with interest. TO ENTERTAIN ROYALTY Catalina Island is soon to be the scene of entertainment for royalty. Douglas Fairbanks is having a model camp prepared at Wilite's Landing, where he expects ere long to have the pleasure of receiving as guests a party of Spanish nobles. No, this is not a movie stunt--but the real thing. The elite of the country will also be present to assist in the entertainment of the royal guests. Captain Pete Mareglia has been engaged by Doug as his major domo, and has already entered upon the discharge of his ar- duous duties. The framework for Mr. P. West's new home on Maiden Lane shows up fine. Mrs. J. F. Tridle has sold her inter- est in the Magic Isle confectionery to Mare Williamson, who expects to re- open it some time in the spring. The Santa Catalina Island Company is putting in a substantial cemented rubble wall between the Sugar Loaf pier and Sugar Loaf Rock itself, in order to prevent any encroachment of the waters on the land there during the winter storms. At 8 p. m. tonight, at the close of the regular mid-week service, there will be a business meeting of the Community (Congregational) Church to consider the recommendation of the church trustees that a building fund be started, looking toward a new church building, which is greatly needed. All who are interested are invited to at- tend. Herbert R. Baker, the cement man, has been busy the past week putting in a cement foundation for the new home which C. C. Melbourne is to have built on Whittley avenue. The house is being set well back on the lot, which brings it so high on the hillside that a magnificent view of the bay may be obtained. Mr. Melbourne says that his plans provide for a flat roof, which will be used as a porch, and from which a magnificent scope of water and mountains may be seen. Watch the world come to Catalina. FISH FISHING FISHERS 270 Tuna Caught to date. 6 Broadbill swordfish. 80 Marlin swordfish. Mr. Edw. M. Durfee, of San Fran- cisco, fishing with Captain Eaton from the launch Leona, on September 22nd brought a marlin swordfish weighing 135 pounds to gaff. Time, one hour and forty-five minutes. The 22nd be- ing Mr. Durfee's birthday, and his first experience with these deep sea fight- ers, combined to make it a memorial day for him. The register at the Tuna Club shows the following visitors for last week: President James W. Jump; Vice-pres- ident Lee A. Phillips, A. C. Brode, F. H. Reed, Max Eppstein, Hal E. Roach, A. R. Martin, Harry Mallen, Robert C. Mankowski, George C. Thomas, III, Dr. Lynn Case, George E. Pillsbury, Ed W. Murphy, Walter Morgan and Wesley C. Green. James W. Jump, president of the Tuna Club, commodore of the new Catalina Island Yacht Club and king of the light tackle world, is still the possessor of these three distinguished tit!es, and as the angling season draws to a close once more he remains top man in light tackle honors for tuna and marlin swordfish. Mr. Jump, like many other of our regular anglers has been recently disappointed in the ab- scence of the yellowfin tuna, which for many years have shown up at this season in our local waters. Mr. Jump was back east with the Chanters at the Shriners' conventiorr during the time the big blue fin tuna ~vere run- ning in big schools, early in the sea- son, but returned in time to take his present season record bluefin tuna of 1173~ pounds. On Sel)tember 22nd Andy Martin, fishing from the family launch, Erma III, with Captain Ray Millsap, took a marlin swordfish on light tackle which won for him the much coveted Tuna Club green enamel and gold button. Mr. Martin has two broadbills to his credit this season, and has been fishing from the Erma III all the time. Mrs. J. M. Greenfield, Mr. Martin's sister is one of the most enthusiastic lady ang- lers who fishes in these waters, and seldom misses going out with her bro- ther. Mrs. Greenfield took her first marlin swordfish this season, and has taken many tuna. Mr. Martin has sighted 119 broadbill this season, has worked 107, has had 13 strikes, taken two himself and Mr. Ralph Bandini, as his guest, took one from the Green- field boat, making three. These figures give some idea of the low percentage of broadbills which will take the bait. C. G. Fairchild, the architect, is home again after a visit to San Diego and Point Loma.
