Congressman M. W. Howard, the
Populist from Alabama, who loctur

congressman from Teuossee, who is
now iu Washington city, and throat
ens to shoot Howard on sight. As
the gootloman from Tenessoe has
never beon known to break his word,
and is considered very neat in his
"gunplay," Borne target practice will
possibly soon be indulged in. As
several congressmen from the South
have also beeu severely reflected up
on by noward, the latter promises
to lead an exceedingly dangerous life
if all keep their word.

Troxelville, Pa., Dec. i, ls'.)5.
Ko. Post. If your Fish Protective
Association does not succeod any
better than the fish commissioners
have, then I say a man is a fool to
put any money into it. What is the
use iu slocking our streams with
fish when wo have right here two
different parties who are piling saw
dust iu tho tributary streams aud
killing tho fish as fast as you can put
thorn iu. I wrote to Mr. House-
werlh about this but nothing has
been done. I, too, am interested in
tho fisti business and would put my
mite into it as quickly as tho next
man, but as long as persons are per
mitted to contaminate the stroams,
I will not put a peuny into it. If
you don't behove what I say, then
como up hero aud see for yourself.
A man might as well throw away his
money as to buy fish to stock the
streams under such circumstances.
Please publish this and oblige, Your
W. H. Knipp.
