W. S. MORLAN of Red Willow.
The expected has happened. The
fusion organs are pointing to the nomi
nation ot W. S. Morlan for congress as
proof positive that the Burlington rail
road owns the Republican party. Let
us see about that : It is true that Mr.
Morlan has been the Burlington's legal
representative at McCook for a number
of years , and why ? Because Mr. Morlan
is a good lawyer , a hard worker and
worth every dollar paid him. If Mr.
Morlan has been worthy of his hire
while an employe of the Burlington , is
that not a good indication that he will
be worthy of his hire when he is em
ployed by the people ? Why should the
fact that a man has represented a cor
poration be urged against him when he
seeks to enter the employ of the people ?
Why allow the corporations to monopo
lize all the talent ? Heaven knows , and
so do the people who have watched the
figure cut in congiess by the Fifth dis
trict's representative during the past six
or eight years , that it is high time to
send to congress from this district a man
who has ability enough to attract atten
tion of a "soulless corporation. "
If Mr. Morlan is elected to congress
and he will be if the people of this dis
trict want to be represented in congress
he will be as faithful in serving the
interests of his new employers as he has
always been serving the interests of the
Burlington. The denunciations of "Dea
con" Morlan because he is a man of such
ability that a great corporation is willing
to pay him liberally for his services , is a
species of petty politics that has cursed
this great state just about long enough.
The Tribune believes with all its might
that W. S. Morlan will represent the
people if elected that he will be true to
their interests and true to his interests
aa a Republican. Beaver City Tribune.

THE foreign demand for cornnieal is
becoming quite a factor , thanks to the
efforts of the department of agriculture ,

IN 1895 the world's production of gold
was $17,000,000 less than the world's
production of silver. In 1898 the pro

IN two years of the Cleveland admin
istration , 1894-95 , we exported $151,199-
092 more gold than we imported. In
two years of the McKinley administra
tion we imported 41.703,309 more gold
than we exported. The difference to
the country , in the two periods , was
$292,902,401 in favor of McKinley. This
doesn't iuclude his billion-dollar favor
able trade balance.
IN 1894 there were only 231,848,596
bushels of wheat retained for home con
sumption ; in 1899 the quantity retained
was 452,530,285 bushels. In 1894 there
were thousands of people too poor even
to buy bread. In 1899 everybody could
buy bread. These two comparisons rep

At the last meeting of the W. C. T. U.
at the home of Mrs. C. H. Boyle , the
subject of Sunday closing came in for
discussion , observance of the Lord's day1
being one of the departments of the
organization , especially when it pertains
to the meat markets , that being consid
ered largely in the power of the house
keeper to remedy. The thought was
generally expressed , that if we are con
sistent men and women , we ought to do
without meat , rather than buy and cause
others to labor on Sunday. Your cor
respondent , in talking with both of the
proprietors , found them heartily favor
ing the closing. One young man said ,
he liked to attend church with his wife ,
Sunday morning , but on account of the
open market , could not. Another one
said , he had no best suit , for he could
not attend church now , and did not need
it. So you will see the tailor is a loser
too. They said , too , that sometimes
women would order by telephone , almos
noon , when they were nearly cleaned
up , and want the meat sent up , thus de
taining not only the men , but the faith
ful delivery boys who should be in one
of our Bible-schools. Surely as the Good
Book says , "No man ( or woman ) lives
unto himself. " This is largely a matter
of custom. May we not arrange Satur
day for both days , and thus give to
others the "personal liberty" we hear so
much about. We believe no one who
stops to consider will do otherwise. So
we hope there will be an amicable agree
ment on the closing of this and all other
business places ; that these busy men
may have this quiet day with the loved
ones at home and in His service.

THRILLING FIGHT WITH A FISH
Monster Tuna Lindetl After si Contest
Lasting- Four Hours.
From the San Francisco Examiner
Professor Charles F. Holder , the
naturali&t and author , describes how
he caught what he believe to be the
largest tuna ever taken with rod and
reel. It was early morning , outside of
Avalon , bay , Catalina island , when he
got a strike which threw the heavy
flying fish halt which he was trolling
far up the line. "Then , " says the pro
fessor , "the magnificent fish came
boiling along the surface , throwing the
foam high in the air , in a manner that
has given some anglers here the 'buck
fever. ' Fortunately I hooked the fish
and its Itfst rush took about 400 feef
of line screaming and hissing from the
reel , and had not the heavy brake
been soaked the line would have burnt
off at ince. I succeeded in turning the
fish , which then came in on me , with
the greatest velocity. I had managed
to reel in the slack , and when the fish
reached within twenty feet of the boat
it turned and was away again , taking
500 feet of the thre'ad of a line. Again
I turned it , and again it came in at
me. Turning once more , the fish dash
ed away , towing the heavy boat a mile
out to sea at a rapid rate. Finally I
turned it , and , after a superb play on
the surface , circling the boat , it turned
toward us a mile inshore , so near the
rocks that I thought we should lose it
in the kelp. Here the fish fought me for
nearly three hours , rushing in and out ,
plunging down into the blue channel ,
circling around , darting away , and then
coming at me from unexpected points ,
showing the most remarkable cunning
I have ever observed in many years'
experience in rod and reel fishing. At
9:30 o'clock , after I had played the
tuna three hours , I turned it after one
of its rushes , when it gathered its en
ergies and headed for Avalon , mak
ing a single run of six miles , and at
just 10:30 : a. m. I stopped it in front
of the Hotel Metropole , where it gave
a wonderful exhibition while surround
ed by the launches of several friends
who came out to see the finish. The
tuna was , so far as I could judge ,
stronger than ever , yet it had towed
the boat against the oars of my boat
man at least eight miles. A heavy sea
had picked up and threatened the boat ,
but this was forgotten , and at the su
preme moment my boatman slipped the
; aff under the lish and it was our ( ? )
not yet the gaff went to pieces and
the fish got away 100 feet again. I
reeled it in ; this time a big gaff was
hooked into it , and , with a cheer , the
monster fish was slid into the boat ,
almost capsizing it. The tuna weigh
ed 183 pounds. Its length was six feet
two inches , girth four feet , and the
catch gives to California the hardest
fighting game fish in the world with
rod and reel. "
