magnificent indutrial Acids of the Tilla

extension will be a great thing for both

The above candidates are for the re

large republican msjority in Pacific
county, It is not likely that there will

Of the above it i hard to pick the
winners at this time. On the average,
all are unuually strong men. County
Auditor Leonard and County Treasurer
Hudler are out of the race. These two
men have been the bet of officials, and
are known all over the state, and vol
iintarily step out with enviable honors.
A notable thing about it all is the good
feeling and "Roosevelt style" of cam
paigning of the aspirants.

pack of four years ago, the comparative
season, foi the same period of time.
The fish are in the strait in large shoals,
and are reported working in toward tha

will fall short. At this time there is no

the present run will last. If the packing
continues for five or six days on the
same basis as yesterday, the output for
the season will be nearly equal that of

The Star theatre was again packed to
witness the second performance of Monte

and heartily earned the applause bestow

In fact nothing too highly can be said
of the performance, and with the addi

proud of, and which they are patroniz
