QUAY ANDTHE SHARK.
The Senator Tells of a Thrillinj perience Which He Had Ex- WHILE TRTIXG TO LAKD A TARPON. A Lons Battle, Fonjht Scientifically, Be sults in a Draw, THE COLO.NEL GETT1KG THEFISn'SHEAD Spnring of words as Senator Quay Bras when approached on the subject of politics, he had a whole host of interesting experi ences to relate of his recent fishing excur sion in Florida. "When a Philadelphia Times reporter broached the subject of tar pon fishing to the jnnior Senator from Penn sylvania, in his rooms at the Continental just after he had breakfasted, Mr. Quay swung round in his chair, and with charac teristic animation proceeded to relate his re cent experiences on Indian river. "I expected," he said, "to have a good deal of sport among the tarpon, but the weather was so bad that I had but three days' genuine sport alter these great and gamey fish. For six days I was storm-bound after we started from Punta Kassa, and when the cold snap from the Horth reached us that ended the fishing, for the tarpon will not bite in cold weather. 'With a heavy, stout rod and a21-thread line on a big reel, tarpon fishing is not the sport it ought to be. If, however, the fisherman uses a 15-thread line, with a ligbt, flexible rod, he will find the fish has at least an een cliance to get away. Indeed, I saw one of my friends, and a snlendid fisherman at that, last spring lose three fine tarpon in a (ingle hour. Mr. "Wood, of Hew York, is recognized as the most persistent angler after this big finny came in all Florida, and I cordially agree'with him when he says that the tarpon is the coming game fish lor sporting fishermen. DELIGHTS OF THE SPOBT. "Ihe abundance of this fish, the desperate fights they make, their taking the still bait, and the magnificent response the silver king gives when securely hooked by immediately leaping many feet out of the water, his swilt running between leaps, his beautiful shape, and bis bright and superb metallic Inster, added to his magnificent proportions, make this kind of fishing a delight to the fortunate sportsman. The very difficulty always ex perienced in bagging a good-sized tarpon adds wonderfully to the joy of the sport. All tou need is a courageous man to row your boat, which is usually a light skiff with a sail the fishiug skiff nearly twice the size of the 'sharpie' used by Peter Goose, who is Alderman McMullen's fisherman, confidante and guide at Atlantic City. "I have killed, with "William K. Leeds, half a dozen red drum in a morning off Bngantine Beach with half the trouble it has cost me to bring to boat a 96-pound tarpon with a 15-ounce flexible rod and a strong 18-thread line. The last big fish I caught this spring was in the Indian river, and I played him one hour and SO minutes before Ben Sooy, who was with me, got the prize into our little boat. But this is the very acme of tarpon fishing, for with a nig reel and a strong cord and a wire Bnood, any man can hook on to a tarpon and let him run the little boat up the Indian river till the great fish is tired out, and then the fisherman pulls his game in by main force. "But there is no skill in that. It's a good deal like 'bunching' quail and shoot ing them on the ground. Kone but a pot hunter will do that, and so no real sports man wants to fi;bt a tarpon without giving him a chance for his Hie. THE LARGEST HE EVER CAUGHT. "Xhe last tarpon I caught in March, with Ben Sooy, weighed 112 pounds. I hooked him with a fresh mullet for bait (the best "bait known.) and he dragged the boat for three miles up Indian river, and jumped ten feet out of water, his silver scale shining like the metallic roofs of the Quebec houses in the morning sun. It took us just two hours to bag that fish, and then both my boatman and myself were too tired to fish any more that day. "Our party of three," continued the Sen ator, "in one week of good weather in the early part of March (and the best month is April) hooked 16 tarpon, but only killed ten and six got away, partly from lack of skill and mainly because the strong and gamey fish disgorged the hook, which they are apt to do if not caught in the cartilege near the mouth. Only in two instances did they succeed in breaking the line. "There was one singular instance hap pened during my last trip, when I had Ben Sooy with me and a colored boy of 16 to manage the boat, while Ben was tn help manage tbe gaff and Keep an eye on the ne gro bov with the paddle. "Just belore sunset with a lot of new lines rigged by Krider, wc anchored in my favor ite spot in Indian river, where the water was only four feet deep, as the big fish feed here and the tarpon always bites best in shallow water. Xou usually see the fish before he takes the bait. A MOMENT OF AKXIETY. I carefully nut on the mullet mvself and made the cat from the sail-boat far out on ths river. Not six minutes had elapsed h.i:.i, uut icu ccv uuiu my uoai aoove me glassy surface of the sluggish river, the tail of a magnificent tarpon appeared directly above the mullet bait. Then I knew the fun was about to begin. There was a sud den swirl in tbe water, and Ben Sooy and the negro came near tumbling into the river from sheer excitement. Seizing my supple and bending rod I pulled off and gave the running fish some 30 feet of slack line.then when my line was taut I gave a sudden twist to my wrist and made a good strike. There was a mighty leap, the sheen of sil ver was in the air, a fierce toss of the head like that of a wild Texas steer, and 'whizz' went my big reel. "I stood up in tbe boat with my hand on the reel and bade the negro paddle for his life to help the fish pull the boat Every five minutes the tarpon repeated his evolu tions, shaking his broad jaws each time he jumped to dislodge the barb. But he was securely hooked, and I quietly enjoyed his exciting rushes and enormous leaps out of water, giving him each time he rushed plenty of line. I was wearing the monster out fast, and I felt glad. But stopl Fifty feet away I noticed a huge fin cutting the still water like the bow of a steam yacht The tarpon, too, as if he had human feeling (he certainly exhibited human fear), soon knew that an immense shark was around and that a new danger threatened him. He shot ahead like a streak of summer light ning. A SHABK ATPEAES. "But he was weary. I pulled him gently toward me. He stopped. The great shark, intent on a full supper, circled swiftly round both boat and fish. I felt a chilly sensation myself to see tbe big fellow outlined in the water as he darted under our boat, revealing 14 feet of his spotted back. He doubled, prepared to play the same trick. I yelled to Ben: " 'Strike him with the oar in the jaw.' And Ben struck him a powerful blow that made him swerve, but only for an instant. "I pulled the tarpon to the boat's side and said: 'Ben, ihoot the shark with your re volver and get the gaff 1" but Sooy was too much rattled with the conflict and never thought of his 'gun.' The tarpon acted as if crazy with fear and did his best to get away irom both enemies. It was too late. I had the fish within teu feet of the skiff, and he came belly up, bleeding at the gills plentifully. Suddenly cleaving the water, the big man-eater came like an arrow. There was a splash more blood on the water the tarpon was lifted clear out of the river, and the spot where a live fish had been was crimson with blood. "The negro danced and yelled: Well, boss, if I ever 'afore seed anythiug like dat' The shaik disappeared. "I pulled In, feeling a dead weight on my line and brought up the head of a magnifi cent tarpon that would have tipped the scales at 140 pounds. There was nothing to car. I ordered Ben Sooy to sail the boat toward shore and we got out and got a good supper." CLEVELAND AS EEFEKEE. lie Decide a Cno Tlint lie Commenced ntlni Eleven Year Ac. rSI-XCIAt. TELEGUAM TO THE DISrATCn.1 Buffalo, April 4. Grover Cleveland was on Mav 19, 1879, appointed referee by a Supreme Court Justice in the suit of "Will iam Baynes against the trustees of the Buf falo State Asylum for the Insane. Mr. Baynes was a contractor on the building, and alter he had begun work the plana, were changed, involving much additional labor and expense. The claim was disallowed by the asylum authorities. It amounted to nearly 4,000. After vain efforts to effect a settlement Contractor Baynes brought suit to mandamus the board to pay him. Mr. Cleveland was appointed referee to take tes timony. The hearings have dragged along ever since, the suit slowly progressing from time to time, while the referee became Mayor, then Governor and afterward Presi dent. Since Mr. Cleveland's retirement from the White House most ot the testimony has been taken, the hearings having been held in Mr. Cleveland's office in New York. Mr. Baynes feared to press the matter because he thought it might prejudice the referee against him, and although he needed the money, was obliged to wait for the tardy justice which lie finally got, in part, at least, for Referee Cleveland allowed 53, 368 27, including interest, as the amount due. Mr. Cleveland modestly put his fees at only 200, despite the time it took to try the case. Justice Lewis to-day confirmed the report and manuaniused the asylum people to pay Mr. Baynes.

The most remark able escape from death ever chronicled in railway annals in the West, occurred this morning, on the "Wabash "Western, two miles north of the town of St. Charles, and 24 miles from this city. Five of the six coaches of the Omaha Express left the track and rolled down an embankment 35 feet high, yet strange to say, no one was Killed and only one person seriously injured. The latter is "Walter T. Shoop, mail clerk, who has a compound fracture of the leg, and is burned about the arms. O. F. Guthrie, St. Louis, sustaineda fracture of the ribs; Allan McDowell, Masonic State Lecturer, H. C. Smith and B. I,. Sewart, and J. C. Cuff, mail clerks, were slightly injured. Mr. Shoop said: "We were on the way from Council Bluffs to St Louis, and were moving at the rate of about 35 miles an hour, when tbe accident occurred. The first inti mation I had of anything wrong was when I heard a rumbling noise and felt the car bumping and shaking. I jumped tomy feet at once, having been aroused from a heavy slumber, and just as my feet touched the floor, the car toppled over and down the embankment." HOW TO KILL MOSQUITOES. A Philadelphia.

Samuel Fraser, a Scotchman 76 years of age, who was a gold miner and argonaut of '49 in California, was married in Burlington on Saturday to his adopted niece, Aggie Barr, aged 16. The Ker. Mr. Abraham, Presbyterian min ister, officiated, much against his will, as he had opposed the marriage. Subsequently there was a wedding supper, which was in terrupted by a gang of men and boys bent on a charivari and armed with tin pans, trumpets and rocks. The best man bought the crowd off for ?5 and there was no further trouble. The ancient bridegroom has had an event ful career. He was a gold miner in Austra lia and later on in California, and is re puted to have made and lost half a dozen fortunes before he came to Ottawa. Fraser is said to be very fond of the girl and has been impatiently waiting until she attained her 16th year. Aggie also claims to be much in love with the old fellow. E inter.
