The seiner, who has been rounding uo
tho undesirable fish with his trusty net.
contends that the vanishing of tlvc frame
fish Is due to underground connection!
ot a subterranean stream with the bed
of the lake, thus affording an outlet for;
the bass, which, he avers, are sadly af
flicted with wanderlust.
Jlobbe so, but my guess Is that the
depletion Is duo to tho depredations of
sea gulls and kingfishers.
Perhaps somo of tho local anglers, who,
owing to the high cost of living, ate
forced to limit their piscatorial actlvltlei
to the shores off good old 'Wool Soap,"
can offer a better guess.
C. (BULLHEAD) PETERSON.
Tho piscatorial editor of Tho Beo ven
tures to suggest that the -well known
migratory habits or the black bass may
bo cited to solvo the problem. These
fish are greatly inclined to go south in
the tlmo of Ico and snow, being much
averse to such conditions, and, as tho
3lllnola Central tracks .cross an arm of
Carter take.nt IsUhought not Improbablo
that tho missing fish have boarded one
or the Florida flyers on that road and
nro wintering around Palm Hcach. The
matter has been referred to "Kit" Car
een and "Vint" JJlnncy-for further so
lution, with tho expectation that "Sllcky"
Green will give us his expert opinion be
Xoro the case Is closed.

PICKENS TALKS WITH LEADERS

Indicate They Were After Ware
houses nt New York nnil
(From a Staff Correspondent)
WASHINGTON. Feb. 2l.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Prospects tor tho continuance ot
tho Indian supply warcnousa at Omaha
wore encouraging tonight after confer
ences by Congressman Lobeck and
Charles H. Pickens of Omaha, who arrived
In the city late this afternoon with John
II. Stephens of Texas, chairman ot the
house commlttco on Indian affairs, and
Leader Underwood and later with Senator
Hitchcock. At the conference with Mr.
Underwood and Chairman Stephens it
seemed that those two leaders had not
wholly appreciated the importance ot the
Omaha station, but had had especially
In their minds tho discontinuance of the
New York and San Francisco stations, so
far removed from the habitation of the
Indian, whon they voted to abolish all of
the Indian supply stations In the coun
try. Senator Hitchcock assured Mr. Pickens
that every effort would be put forth to
reinstate Omaha In tho bill when It comes
In the senate committee and with tho
Interests shown by the chairman ot the
house Indian commltteo after the inter
view with him today It Is believed when
tho measuro finally goes In conference
ot tho committees ot the two houses
Omaha's chances are good for retaining
tho present supply station. Mr. Pickens
was much encouraged tonight at the re
sult of his efforts at the capltol Immedi
ately following his urrlval In tho city.
F. M. Sands of Gerlng and Congressman
Klnkald have telegraphed John M. Halll
gan. North Platte, attorney representing
tho Irrigation district, that It Is advisable
to defer for a month after the possible
enactment of tho proposed Irrigation law
now pending, to make application for
more, tlmo to pay water rights In tho
Gerlng and Brown's creek districts, in
stead ot filing the application now, as
waa Intended a few days ago, and for
which purpose Mr. Sands came here.
This action I deemed best by tho con
gressman and Mr. Sands tor the reason
that If the pending twenty-year bill for
payment of water rights l passed It will
nfford both a precedent and criterion for
the extension of tlmo to these districts.
Mr. Sands left for a visit to relatives In
