   Salt Lake Tribune, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1890, Salt Lake City, Utah                                DAILY TBIEUKE SALT LAKE CITY UTAH SUNDAY DECEMBER 7 1890 FISHING IN WINTER TIE Get Live Bait and Chop a Hole in the Ice THEN CAST YOUB LINES AND WAIT For a to Give tho AllIn spirinjgSlwflttl of n tion for Beginnerfl in a F Colel AVcather Sport Copyright 1800 by Baohcller a man or boy has ever indulged in tho delights of fishing through tho ice tho ap proach of winter brings a prospect fur from disa to him There Is sorno t hi ng cheery about tho season that extends to m o s t winter sports but not qiiiio as it doos to fishing through tho ico Tho town dweller knows lit tlo of Us mysteries and has to sit at the foot of his ronntry friends as a student while its method and attractions aro made clear to him When Jack Frost lays his icy fingers on tho pools and shallows netting phn brown tangled urassos and stilToriing thorn into a sparkling fringn of ico tippcdspoars laying tho ico smooth on tho surface of tho water while below out of sight tho unclor surfaco is into curious caves hills and mounds turned upside down and all tho varied fanciful shapos and forms known only to tho fish that hold high revel among thorn thon is tho time that tho tin pools and shallows gets his linos and hooks into working ordor cuts his 11 and makes all his preparations for tho sport as ho sits by tho Uro at night Tho city dweller who has onco oxpor ioucodadays fishing through tho ico rojofcosalso in anticipation as ho thinks of the glorious times In store for him and ho too arranges his tacklu and goos mentally and carefully through tho list of country friends who live within a rea sonable distanco of a wollsLockcd stream crook or lake Tho city visitor if a sportsman is generally nioro Mian at such season and If weather conditions aro favorable his frlonds will sooto it that ho doos not lack for oppor tunity to thoroughly enjoy himself Tho practice of lishing through tho ice is a vory old one arid undoubtedly descended to us from tho Indians who in turn had probably obtained their knowledge of tho art from tho Alaskans tho practice being gonoral with a dis tinction of methods among all northern races Ono of tho mostfamous pictures in tho French miUni tho year bnforo last was a group by Kornolia Lalman copied from some mural or cavo painting which dated far boyoud tho memory of man It represented a Churchwoman of IMtlokaj fishing for winter roach noar tho shoro With lujr is aman armod with au irou shod lunco with which ho cuts ajiolo in tho noar shoro wluiro thoso lisli aro found A now holu is froqiumtly cut A siovo of bouo and strips of whalebone is used to koop tho holo froti from ice and tho woman stooping down attracts tho fish by a peculiar clattoring cryAs soon as a fish is soon and not before a lino made of dried entrails having a hook of coppor or bouo batted with iish entrails Is dropped down and tho hun gry iibh is caught cold water put thorn in a can tilled with warmwater and killed thorn iu a few minutes Tho biankdt is simply used to keep tho water taken from the river from lowering Its temperature after ex posure on four sides top and bottom to an atmosphere much coklor than is the water under tho loo Oldtime fishormen thoro aro who scoff at this innovation but it has more than onco oven proven au excellent one 7 Pickerel aro about tho bostJish to bo easily located by thn majority of fisher men as they abound in most lakes and along tho shallows of most rivers With their sharklike voracity they read ily hook thornsolvos too firmly to easily got looso and so are landed without much trouble In various sections how over aro caught giant porch piko sand piko silver whitefish giant sunfish bass mtiscalongo catfish sturgeon oolsand bullheads Having located tho place to fish got up soon after day break and put on tho warmest clothes you have taking caro to havo flannel next tho skin 1 frequently put on two entire suits of clothes You will proba bly find this a good plan for long stand ing will chill you and any stamping about on the ice in au endeavor to keep warm will scare away all the fish that aro not Icebound just us the knock of a pole on a rock bottom when spearing fish is disastrous Tho best way to get tho necessary minnows or for bait is to find if possible a place where sowago or drainage runs into tho river or lake at thoso places tho water is genorally open far fnough to put In a dropnot and thoro is always a sufficient quantity of food to keep the small fry on hand If thoso places aro not near by it is a good plan to break the ico a day or two be fore if possible and bait it by throwing in theentrails of fish or chickens or in fact anything that is savory and strong Tipups aro tho next item and those are generally made by cutting a number of fourlogged twigs which aro familiar to ovory one entire stranger to Icefishing For tho benefit of such strangers It may bo well to de scribe a and also tho way to make it Dry sticks aro moro generally used bocauso thoy arc more easily found but I prefer to use groon wood iwigs trosli cut because Uioy aro moro tough and loss liable to break short off on one or moro of the logs Soloot a small light branch and cut it off whore tho main stom sends out throe or four branches cut tho main stom ahcut inches below tho branches and u n ui tho branohos to form throe or Foi r capable of supporUiifj thi main sunn iu auupright position If cut groou the logs may bo readily Lrainod in any do Such was parly fishing through tho ico and while wo havo disoardnd tho idea of tho lish by means of sounds or cries tho method employed remains intrinsically the sumo Tho modern outfit is simple but some littlo judgment and knowledge in choos ing tho items aro required to avoid an noyance and disappointment In buy ing a lino got a woven one of good quality the cheaper ones sightly though thoy may bu aro almost certain to and so got tangled and caught in tho rough edges or under surface of tho ice just as a good fish is hooked and every fisherman knows that it is always tho best fishes that slip oft the hook at tho critical moment A cheap line too soon frays out with chaffing on tho edge oftho hole and so is liable to break at any moment generally just tho wrong one A good price should also bo paid lor hooks and although opinions to tho contrary have boon expressed fino gut should be used to lash them Such hooks as are not in use should bo kept An tho pocket for the cold acting upon the exposed steel chills the gut on tho shank and nsikos it snap at tho first cross pull The next tiling 10 select is the bait can This should be an unusually large one for two reasons one that the greater tho bulk of water the warmer it can bo consequently will not so read ily freeze solid and the other that a largo can will come in very handy for carrying t when a big string of fish occupies all tho spare hands a fisherman has Every ono has a right to his owu ideas and f havo boon laughed at a few times for having a thick treble blanket of tlannol wrapped aboutmy The laugh how been on my side bo tore tho was over for all tho bait was pretty sure to my can and my associates had to bog some of it or catch some fresh bait which is not al Do not though do as ono man did when I explained this to him He thought he could improve on tlio plan and catching his fish out of keeping up an unceasing supply of fresh water Into this trench the fish may be placed as soon as caught and the open space covered up with a sack or boards or anything handy In drawing a lino up always pull it with a quick oven steady motion as when the fish fools the hook galling him as ho hanors back ho will more than probably mako a dash forward to escape it and if the lino be slack in the hand away he will go often taking hook and gut with him If several days fishing are to bo taken the holes should be baited every night by killing the minnows and throwing them in or if it can bo arranged the holes should bo cut ind baited for sorno nights before tho ishing takes place Tho additional abor will be amply paid for by tho in reascd catch As with every other sport innumer able points ariso in actual practice for which no directions can be given They must be learned by actual experience but tho principal points may bo summed up in tho advice to use only the best materials throughout to diligently in spect tho hooks to act quickly and promptly but without flurry to keep quiet and most important of all to be careful to select a good spot to fish A parting suggestion is to avoid the use of spirits U keep warm They are very well when tho fishing is over and ex posure one ocl but before that time their warmth is fictitious and dangerous and good steaming coffee is infinitely preferable P POND NOS I 3 TIPUPS 2 A KITE sired position For my own part I gen orally use wiro which are made by taking about six foot of common galvanixod with a pahof pliers or monkey wrench bonding it into shape on thomodol of tho cut twig On tho upright pioco in addition to tho indicating Haff 1 place a piece of stout coilod spring wiro to tho froo end or which is attached a small boll Those cost little can be made easily and where a largo mimbor ol tiptips aro worked al onco single handed orshoyt handed tho advantage Having reached frho fishingground with linos hooks bait and tho next thing is to cut thoholcs through tho ico This is usually done with an axo and is ofton a moro delicate proceed ing than is generally supposed For ox man who understands his work will clip away vory gently instead oC trying to out a holo with a few vigorous strokes The reasons Tor delicate chip ping tiro manifold It is not so likely to frightou tho fish as moro vigorous chop ping would be it doos tho ico in all it liable to give way at unexpected moment and It does not drlvo tho cut ico under tho Hoc but loaves it just whore it can roadily bo fishad ouL Then the hole being cloar of looso ico will remain open a much longer time When tho holes aro cut a plummet should be dropped to get tho depth of wator and tho hook after being baited should bo lowered to within a foot or so of tho bottom Fish under tho ice al ways swim low to got as much warmth as possible Tho lino is thon brought up to the odgo of tho holo and over it and is thon fustiMicd to tho front log of tho which is laid flat on tho ice about four foot from tho holo with tho throe logs towards tho holo and tho pioco bearing tho flag pointing away from it When a lish Is hooked tho pull upon tho lino will givo a sharp jork to tho and draw it on to tho throe logs whiio tho little rod tlag which is usually fastened to tho top point shows which hook tho fish has taken And hero comos in tho value of the boll system previously described If thoro aro say fifty linos out with flag signals alone the oye must bo kopt 01 thorn all without intermission but a bol immediately gives notice that a fish is hooked and attracts attention in tho di rection of tho while tho flag shows the identical lino at a glance Tho best way to bait tho hook is to treat tho minnow tho same as in ordimvrj lishing Pass tho hook through the shoulders pointing towards tho head and do not pinch or hand6 tho minnow any moro than you can possibly help Tho loss handling it receives tho longci will it live and the moro lively will it bo on tho hook thus quickly attracting attention which is tho main thing to bo desired as tho fish onco seeing the min nows become so ravenous that thjiy will dart at them with a rush and at anything attractive In fishing foi large fish or where large fish aro likely to bo mot with I use another device which is not necessary in ordinary fish ine This is a picco of hard wood two Inches wido and long enough to roach across the holo In tho middle of t picco of wood is a small hole v smoothly cut through which I bring tho lino to the Tins will prevent n largo fish from seizing tho bait and es eaping by pullingthe tipup into the holo t If is vory cold or if the fishing is clone from a two or three days camp as is frequently tho case siderable troubln will bo experienced ii keeping tho fish from freezing stiff and iirrotafning thorn in firstclass condition plan is to take an fully chip out a to six foot long and about a and i half broad The depth must bo rcgu ilatcd by tho thickness of bui should be made as as practicable When finished pocketknife 01 thoobrnor of ax and bore a littlo round the water which will then

house of Hapsbiirg Lorniino which formerly reigned over tho GrandDuchy of Tuscany previously Italian revolution of 1859 Archduke John who a year ago renounced his Imperial rank uml assumed tlio name of Jolmnn Orfch had life of a tii Iu of a merchant vessel tho Santa Mar on tho coasts of Soutli America It is stated that Captain Jolmrin traotucl a marriage in London last spring with an opeia dancer mmied Milly Stunol and that this lady sailed with him in the Margarota from Montevideo On lulyJ Itll bound forValparaiso His first oflher was seriously ill another of his lours wus so inexperienced that he had to bo left biihlnd and tho second mato had been dismissed Ho would have there fore to round Capo Horn without any ofllcers at all but bis orow consisted of twentysix meti all sailors from the Aus troBungarlan marine and tho Santa a strong wollbuilt vessel was well found Inevery having bread for ono year and moat and other necessaries for eight months She ought to have ar rived at Valparaiso about September 1st if not foundered tho vessel is either in Pata gonia or In tho Straits of Magellan or at Statou Island ID that case no news can bo had of her for another two months as re pairs are made very slowly in that region But It is known that violent cyclones raged in thoso latitudes in tho first clays of Au nst precisely the timo when it is calculated that tho vessels must have been passing SLuton Island the most dangerous point A number of vosselt aro known to have foun dered during tho hurricane Tho Archduke John third and youngest son ofLeopold Grand Duke of Tuscany was born in 1830 Mo was but 8 years old when his father was dethroned and ho received bis education in Austria While a subaltern in the arrny be served with on attaining gen orals rank ho bogan to criticise Austrian military a freedom which often gave oiloiibO and personal slights provoked him to throw his rank titles and decorations to tho winds in the hopethat he might make a new career for himself by his rin alded talents The Archdukes mother is terribly unnerved and If tbe present uncer tainty is pnvlongcd Is not likely to survive it She is 77 years of ago BLOATING OVER PARNELL The Tories Always Knew He Was a Horrible Man CAPTAIN OSHEAS SINGULAR ABSENCE How He Left His Wife Alone Ap parently That Parnell Should Live With That Parnell Should Fail in Love LONDON Nov 19 1890 That modern sphinx that impenetra ble inscrutable mysterious being Mr Parnell is at the present moment having abad quarter of an hour Tho Tories and coercionists aro beside themselves with joy at the result of the OSHEA PAKNELL DIVORCE SUIT They loudly assert that they had never been mistaken in their opinion of tho Irish that he was of the scoundrels scoundrelly The London dailies say that the effect of tho trial will be to cause him for a time at any rate to retire into private with a mock regret half deplore his political dralh The largest circulation in the Daily obit uaming him says that Englishmen must feel as they look back upon his past record that he has shown many of those nnalitics of wisdom patience the courage tho impertur bability tho readiness to for which Britons with their inborn ad miration for those gifts and powers are prepared to forgive much In short the British press and the British nation talk of the uncrowned as if he had Ignominiously sidled off Unpolitical stage with no possible probable shadow of hope of ever returning thereto Meanwhile Parnell has issued an ur whip to his followers requiring attendance of every one of them in ho Commons at tho opening of Parlia ihn35thinst This hardly looks iko fleeing from the lead ership of the Irish party To judge rom thotono assumed by some of the norning journals the chiefs of the Lib party can no longer associate with this IIPKSTKOYKR OF DOMESTIC HAPPINESS and that consequently Home Rule be relegated to a back seat How is it it is asked a man like VIr Gladstone to stand on tho same ilatform with so vilo a human reptile as scoundrel who has repaid tho lospitality extended to him by entering nto a guilty Mr won with the wife of his host Thusis the Irish loader damned all tho moocls tenses

his own disgrace Jy harboring a clear friend But thedivorce judge dismissed this statement as being from the evidence entirely without foundation It certainly looks strange arid not quite iu accordance with the immortal Squares unalterable rule of right and otcrnal fitness of things1 that Captain OShca should after charging Parnell with undue intimacy with Mrs OShea again receive him into tho boom of his farIly This Icnks remarkable like con nivance and collusion From this time forward e uncrowned king was con in his v Us to the OShca chateau iitiElthain and during his hostsab he took

satisfactory The cause of his absence was he said his Parliamentary duties This was in 1SSC after he had been returned for Gahvay against the of the great majority of the Irish party On that occasion Tim Healey opposed his election tooth and nail and was supported by many of the most in fluential Nationalists in the constitu ency OShca was Parnclls uomineo and affairs wore assuming such a lower ing aspect that the uncrowned king found it absolutely necessary to the maintenance of his authority to TEAK HIMSELF AWAY from the soft caresses of his proteges wife and travel down to Galway to quell the rising storm The appearance of the chief on the scene promptly silenced all opposition and tho captain was duly returned Immediately on his introduc tion to Parliament he was admitted to tho confidence of distinc tion which was denied older and better deserving followers It was wondcringly observed that the Irish loaders conven tional iciness of manner suddenly thawed in the prescncVof OShea and a few of the knowing ones of tho Irish party ventured to assert that the cause was not altogether unconnected with that garment of mystical petticoat On the other side it was con tended that nods and bocks and wreathed smiles hadnopower over the sphinx and that his weeping country MONOPOLIZED ALL HIS AFFECTIONS His manner was so reserved and monastic that nobody dreamt of his falling a
