THE TROUBLES OF FITZi The Jolliers Had Sonic Fun With tfcfr Mdat Vendor This Moroin*. Fitz had a rush order of fish to ^lc liver at the academy this morning, and saw ft rig standing ill front of! the cifefir store which lie thought belonged to AVt Bowers. He asked for the use of the rig—and Art obligingly said "certainly." The meat market man drove the horse across the street and put three large fish in the vehicle and started for north Broadway. The real owner of the horse and buggy appeared and entered a pro test to the high handed manner in which his. horse was taken but Fitz finally squared the deal and secured the'owner's consent to use the rig. Before he had gone a block two of the largest fish fell out and spectators yelled at Fitz calling attention to the Joss, but the Irishman though he was being joshed some more and airily waved his hand at the shouters without looking back. When lie reached north Broadway lie 'phoned that some son of a sea c* ok had swiped two of the fish. A large crowd collected at the Broad way by the time Fitz retutne and the joshing he got would have faded any one else than a man of his unlimited gall. AUCTION SALE. •fv'lr.

St. Paul Dispatch: The Northern Pacific passenger department refuses a ,i"ar jPairjt tqniinrpsiOnerMcCon iieltnoVstWe poim in'!rOrth liakota. \'l1eYe he xffiSli'e'Sr to sfJeftk words cheer and. encouragement to sundry larrners who are ambitious to add the niakin^qf -butter to tlieir yarip^^ccom IIishme»Us. Mr. McConncll, possibly, thinks that he is merety co-operating in tli edevelopinent of the industries 01 that country, which, in turn, would bring additional freight to the road, and that, in a way. he is a sort of advance freight agent, of course, and merely as a reflex action of his more important and legitimate work, the development of butter-making. The company, on the other hand, probably argues that Mr. McConnell's jurisdiction is limited to Minnesota that North Dakota is able tr) care for itself: that no missionary efforts are needed there: that if the commissioner wishes to visit North Dakota !ic should pay his way and not go d. h. Possibly, also, the man who controls passes has been reading the appropriation bill of the last legislature and noted the couple of hundred dollars added to the com missioner's salary, and the $i2.coo ad ded to the standing appropriation for expenses of the dairy and food depart ment, and argues that it is in shape to pay its way as lesser folk have to. Then again there is the probability that this railway, at ieast, is getting weary of this pass business. It may be remembered that its president, in send ing out the customary passes to mem bers of the legislature last year—to save them from paying the fares to meet which the state gives theni 15 cents a mile—limited the duration of the char ity to the session of the legislature, in stead of making them "annuals." Plainly, Mr. Melien regards the pass gratuities as an evil, and began its gradual elimination by that gentle pro cess. after the recipe of curing dogs of the habit of killing sheep by beginning at the tail to cut off and ending at the neck. We recall the radical divergence of views between the president of the Northern Pacific and the recipients of his curtailed passes, and the indignation of the latter at this invasion of what they had grown up to regard as vested right.. If the reporters accurately rep resented the commissioner's feelings over the denial of a pags, it might be inferred that lie also regards free rides as a perquisite of office. Still, we remain of .the:' opinion ex pressed when legislative passes were a live topic, that the practice is bad where it is not vicious that there is 110 rea son why Smith, official, should be let to ride free of cost, and why Smith, pri vate citizen, should have to go into his pocket-book for the money with which to pay for hys ride. Smith, citizen, nat urally concludes-that he is not. getting a "fair deal" when he. riding in the same car with Smith, official, sees the latter present deadhead pass while he has ttf git'e up Ctfcket for wlifch he has paid his good money.
