His Queer Catch. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 12 January 1900
His Queer Catch. One of the queerest experiences in catching trout that any man ever had was that at Moosohead lake recently by a sportsman named Williams. He was standing on the apron of tho dam at Wilson's, fishing in the quick water below, and had met with fair success. Near the shore, on his right hand, in a little eddy, he noticed a barrel lying on its side in several feet of water. He found that it was an old molasses barrel and was lying so that he could see the bunghole. *■ -. '. Of course, the barrel was full of water, and tho man had no idea ' there was a fish inside of it, but just for curiousity he dropped his hook through the hole, and no sooner had it landed there than the wator was boiling, and the fisherman knew that ho had a trout on the other end. He played him until the fish was tired, and when be came to land him ho could not get him through the hole. He secured a saw and sawed a piece out oft the top of the barrel, near the hole. The fish came out. It weighod th...

Big Ships to Be. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 12 January 1900
Big Ships to Be. Designs for the "greatest battleships ever projected for the American Navy have been agreed upon by the Naval Construction, after several months of discussion ] over the important questions of battery, armor, speed, coal capacity, and displacement. The three new vessels— to be called the Georgia, the New Jersey and the Pennslyvania — will equal in forniidability the finest battleships yet laid down by any foreign Power, and with the American improvements will surpass in fighting force any ships now afloat. The salient features of the design contemplate a displacement of 14,000 tons, as compared with the Oregon's 11,000. The speed is to be "at least nineteen knots, " with a coal capacity of 2000 tons. The total oost.of each of these three' ships when ready for sea will exceed $7,000,000 each. They will cruze 7000 miles straightway, and there will not be three ships of similar offensive and defensive strength in the fleet of any possible enemy. L. T. Travis, agent Sou...

A Russian Wolf Story. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 12 January 1900
A Russian Wolf Story. "Well," said the red-faced man, "the most exciting case I over had happened a few days in Russia. One night, when sleighing about ten miles from my destination, I discovered, to my intense horror, that I was being followed by a pack of wolves. I fired blindly into the pack, killing one of the brutes, and,. to my delight, saw the others stop to devour it. . "After doing this, however, they still came on, I kept on repeating the dose, with the same result, and each occasion gave me an opportunity to whip up my horses. Finally there was only one wolf left, yet on it came, with its fierce eyes glaring in anticipation of a good, hot supper." . Here the man who had been sitting in the corner burst forth into a fit of laughter. "Why, man, "he said, "by your way of reckoning that last wolf must have had the rest of the pack inside of him!'.' - , _"Ah!" said the red-faced man, ."now I remember," it did wabble a I bit."— London Tit-Bits.

INTRODUCTORY GREETING. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 12 January 1900
INTRODUCTORY GREETING. To all the patrons of the Amador Ledger and the Amador Republican, Greeting: With last week's issue the Ledger passed into the hands of the Amador County Publishing Company, owners for some years past of the Amador Republican. But the Ledger has not fallen into the hauds of novices. Those who assume its ownership and management are neither new to the newspaper business nor to the country in which they will operate and the interests of which they hope to serve. The enterprise they hscte undertaken is no experimental or speculative venture, but an enlargement ' of their already well established and growing business and extension of their sphere of influence. As publishers of the Republican we have received inanv most cheering proofs of the confidence and good will of the best and most influential citizens of this county, and most flattering notices and testimonials, though never solicited, have been frequently given by judicious men and the press of the State at...
THE SENATORIAL PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 12 January 1900
THE SENATORIAL PROBLEM. The great and momentous question whether the sovereign State of California shall count for a half or a whole State in the Senate of the United States, remains, apparently, undecided. What causes this hesitation ? Are not the facts all fully in the possession of our chief executive ? Surely, it requires but an ordinary exercise of judgment to make both duty and policy so clear that vacillation becomes worse than a mistake. ' . • . I _"| Under.; the. circumstances all citizens, who sincerely desire the good of the State, can have but one wish in the matter, and that is to see the Legislature convened and a Senator legally chosen. Those who hold any other opinion are influenced either by party or personal considerations and can justify themselves only by saying that non-representa-tion is the less of the two evils which they believe or pretend are involved in a choice. It is easily conceivable that irreconcilable Democrats may feel so, and craftily labor to so c...
ADVENT OF THE RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 12 January 1900
ADVENT OF THE RAILROAD. The division of sentiment in Amador county, along! the Mother, Lode, relative to the advisability or non-advisability of having a line of rajlroad running from the Southern Pacific terminus to Sutter Creek or Jackson, or to both, must have e M%r. durin S. the P as t few weeks— crystal ized into'a firm belief" that suctfa road would be of incalculable benefit to all of the material interests of Amador county. The impassible condition of the wagon roads, and the congestion of freight at the lone depot, all destined for points along the Mother Lode, are most convincing proofs that the present mode of transportation of freight— namely, by. wagon— is deplorably : inadequate for the volume of business to be handled! Three hundred thousand feet of lumber is today, and has been for some time, exposed to the weather in the railroad yards and the freight sheds are so full that, after wagon traffic opens,' it will take months to get the ; merchandise and mining material...
