President Harrison Fixes Salmon Fish
ing in the North.
Actually Crowding One Another Out
of the Water in Alaska.
Senator Jones Is Worried Nearly to
Death Severe Storm In Moseow
President's Christmas.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 25. The
president has issued a proclamation re
serving for timber and fish culture pur
pose the Island of Afognak, Alaska, and
its adjacent rocks and territorial waters,
including the Sea Lion rocks and Sea
Otter Island. This reservation is one of
the tncst important yet made. Salmon
and trout crowd the Afognak river dur
ing the breeding season, so much so as
to actually press some out on the shore,
and there is no doubt that by preserving
the river it will become a breeding place
for all the other waters of Alaska and
the different rivers of the United States
in the future. If it had been left to the
depredations already committed upon
it, the lish there, as they have elsewhere
in the United States, would become
utterly exterminated. There is a pros
pect that the sea otter may also be pre
served there, and it may be other sea
aniaials. This is a beginning of a series
of reservations in this direction that
will preserve the fish and animals of the
sea,-as have been preserved the deer,
elk, buffalo and other animals of the
United States in the National park.
Batolll is Much Pleaed Rev. Dr. M
Glfun Reinstated.
Washington, Dec. 25. Regarding the
press dispatches to the effect that there
is disatisfaction among the American
bishops, owing to Monsignore Satolli's
presence in America, and that the feel
ing at Rome ha." been dampened by the
reports of the Now York conference, the
ablegate says his private advices are
directlv to the contrary, and that the
Vatican has made known its deterniina
tion to uphold its legate against all op
position. Referring to the report that
President Harrison was more favorable
to diplomatic relations between the vati-
can and United States, Monsignore
Satoli said tonight that the only found
ation for such a story was the fact that
President Harrison had received the
legate merely as the papal representative
at the dedication of the world's fair.
Rev. Dr. McGlinn the newly rehabili
tated priest received a spontaneous
-ovation when he made his appearance
upon the platform at Cooper union in
"New York Sunday evening. An im
mense crowd greeted him. In the
-course of his address Dr. McGlinn said :
"As I have said before, I was not born
to 1 be an agitator, 1 was born to be a
preacher, to asuage sorrows and to bless
the pathway of my fellow-men. Those
of you who know me best know that it
was never my wish to lose those altars.
Loud applause. But when I came on
the platform to epeak as a citizen, as
man to man, whether that platform was
the tail of a cart or the head of a barrel.
Laughter. I was still a priest of Christ'
and still considered myself worthy to
preach the fatherhood of God and the
brotherhood of man. Today will long
be memorable to me. I have again to
day stood before the altar so dear to me
and have offered up there holy incense
of communion.
Monsignore Satolli is much gratified
by the general expressions of pleasure
with which the restoration of Dr. Mc
Glynn has been received throughout the
country. He deplores the fact, how
ever, that in some quarters efforts are
made to fan into a blaze the embers of
the old controversy, and hopes they will
cease, as the past is forgiven and should
be forgotten. To recall it is cruelty to
him and disrespect to the authority.
Translating His Monetary Speech.
Brussels, Dec. 25. Senator Jones
till remains at the Hotel Bellevue over
seeing the translation into French of his
last speech before the monetary confer
ence, bestowing great care on the work.
The Belgian secretaries have nearly
worried him to death by their constant
altering of the text. The senator's wife
and beautiful daughter are much lion
ized in society.
Bllssard Threatens a Blockade.
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 25. Kansas,
Oklahoma and the west generally is ex
periencing a genuine Christmas blizzard
today, which threatens not only to
blockade railroad travel, but also to do
great damage to stock oc the ranges
south of Kansas if it continues for many
hours. -

Chicago, Dec. 29. Special. Rev.
Dr. Vandyn who has made a tour of the
far-"- west in the interest of the
cause of education among the Indians,
was in this city last evening en route to
Washington. There can be no more in
teresting subject than that of the condi
tion of the Indians. Educational work
and the efforts which have been
made to dissolve the tribal dependence
of these people and place them upon the
independent footing of citizenship have
been most marked. It is a healthy in
dication that attendance in the Indian
schools has increased 13 per cent ; that
5,900 Indians who have received lands
in severaltv have become citizens, and
tiiat by this means of allotment 25,000.
000 acres of land hitherto lying idle have
been opened to settlement. Four nun
dred years after the discovery of Amer
ica the Indian problem is still unsolved
but in these tacts and figures there is
significant promise of a solution.

' Peasants Dying Like Flies.
St. Petersburg. Dec. 27. A British
consul who visited the famine districts
reports that the peasants are dying like
flies from hunger and disease, and that
there are no signs of relief from the hor
rors of a hard winter. Cholera is raging
severely on the Circassian snore. There
have been hundreds of deaths in the
last fortnight.

"The Fool Friends" of Cleveland Pro
yoking Hostilities Between Them!
There Will Probably Be No Extra Ses
sion, Bit Crisp Will Probably
Be the Speaker.
Washington, Dec. 26. The demo
cratic leaders are endeavoring to arrange
all differences that may exist or may
arise between Cleveland and Crittp,
Some of the men who were so violently
opposed to Crisp a vear ago, and who
are known as radical Cleveland men
now seem to be endeavoring to bring
these men together, in the hope that
difficulties may be avoided. Don M
Dickinson is one of the men who is act
ing as a go-between at present. There
have been no open hostilities between
the speaker and the president-elect as
yet, but the fool friends of Cleveland
have tried to provoke them. Crisp re
sponded indirectly by declaring for an
immediate extra session, and the fact
that he has the power to bring it about
has brought the conservative Cleveland
ites to their senses. The result will
probably be a conference between Crisp
and Cleveland, in which the speaker
will agree to form a ways and means
committee satisfactory to Cleveland, and
the president-elect will agree to call off
the opposition to Crisp's re-election
The result of the conference will be
shown in the attitude of. the respective
factions within a few days after it has
been held.
Shot a Plnkertoa.
Chicago, Dec. 26. Steffano Albertine
early Christmas morning saw two men
in the store of his employer and at once
began to shoot, with the result of. lodg
mg a bullet in the skull of .Lieutenant
Clarke, of the Pinkerton agency. Al
bertine discovered his mistake and gave
up his pistol, and, as be says, was im
mediately .hammered almost into insen
sibility by the men to whom he sur
rendered .and , by police officers who
came in later. The officers say that
Albertine was a thief and began shoot
ing when placed under arrest, but Al-
bertine's employer says he is not t
thief and should have killed the Pinker-

Review.' The desire for annexation to
the United States is growing r.-pidly in
Canada. In a sentimental sense Canada
is absolutely loyal to England, yet all
her interests plead with her to obliterate
the border line that now separates her
from the United States. Nothing but a
customs union with her colonies could
have alleviated the situation, but this
has been deferred so long that, as Lord
Salisbury confessed, it is hopeless now
to attempt it. Unless the democracy
give Canada free trade Canada wil
surely drift rapidly into the mood of an
nexation. Like Old Times.
Butte Miner. It sounds like old times
in Kansas to read that the populists are
organizing militia companies in that
state, hhot guns in former days were
not an unknown quantity in Kansas
politics, but it was hardly thought that
the system would be revived. The plan
is that any memlr who votes against the
party ticket shall be court-martialed, yet
upon the subject of the punishment to
be meted out to the offender the infor
mer maintains a discreet silence.
Narrow Escape.
Antelope Herald. Perry Maupiu
made a miraculous escape last Tuesday
from what might have been a very seri
ous accident, wnue coming along a
rough road east of town in his 4-horse
wagon one of the front wheels went into
chuck hole, throwing Perry forward
with his leg down between the brake
comb and the wagon bed. He fell on
over and was horizontally suspended by
his leg, and as the horses could ' not be
stopped, he was dragged in this condi
tion about 50 yards, his head thumping
the frozen ground every step--Finally he
was jarred loose and fell to the ground
with a heavy thud, and, to .add to. his
pain, one of the wheels ran over .bis leg
and braised it up considerably- In a
few minutes he regained consciousness
and overtook the horses and wagon.
Perry has a bruised leg and a sorehead,
but still holds the champion .belt us be
ing the hardest man to kill in the north-'
west.,. - . . v .
Biennial Report of the fttate Weather
- Factory. With Observer Stationed
" at Portland. "
From the Salem Statesman.
' State Printer Baker now has a force of
twenty-six men employed in the state
printing office and they are running full
time. The biennial report of the Oregon
state weather bureau, co-operating, with
the United States department of agri
culture's weather bureau, is now in
band. H. E. Haynes is director of the
bureau and B. S. Pague local forecast of
ficial. In this report they recommend
the priuting of 50,000 copies of the re
port, and ask an appropriation of $2,000
for the purchase of instruments, etc.
Since the last biennial report was ren
dered, the work of establishing stations
of observrtion has steadily progressed,
until now there are eighty points in the
stare having standard government in
struments, from which vital climatic
data can be and is ascertained.
Especial attention has been paid to
the extension of the service, especially
in the more sparsely and comparatively
unknown counties removed . from the
center ot population. It has been es
pecially endeavored to fit out the various
colleges of the state very completely in
order that the students may have the
benefits of the practical work of meteor
ological observation. The state univer
sity, government experiment station
Pacific university, and Mt. Angel college
are thoroughly equipped with meteoro
logical instruments. The state Normal
school at Monmouth is also soon to be
equipped. The first meteorological
records made in Oregon were those made
by the U. S. Hospital corps in July
1850 ; the first were commenced at Fort
Dalles, and during the next month they
were commenced at Astoria. The long
est continuous record of precipitation in
the state made by private- individuals is
that made by Thos. Pierce, at his farm
on .bola hills, they forming an uninter
rupted record of twenty-two consecu
tive years. The longest record, cover
ing a period of eighteen years, made by
a private individual, of temperature
precipitation, etc., is the record made
by Saml. L. Brooks, ot The Dalles. The
record made bv John Briggs, at Albany
and the one made-bv George Bennett, at

Th Medal Contest.
A moderate sized audience attended
the contest for the Demorest medal t
the Court house last evening. The

Joe Bachman Dead.
San Fbancisco, Dec. 28 Joseph Bach
man, who died here Monday, was quietly
buried at the Jewish cemetery in this
city today, many of the prominent mer
chants of the . city contributing the
means for defraying the funeral ex
penses. Twenty years ago Bachman
was one of the leading operators of Port
land, Or. He and his brother were very
influential in local politics, and Joseph
Bachman, when 35 years of age, was
elected city treasurer of Portland, hold
ing that position for two successive
terms. His brother Addie was then
elected city treasurer, and Joe retired to
assume charge of the bank of Oregon, an
institution that eventually wound up
its affairs in bankruptcy, causing the
two Bachman brothers to - nee the
country and remain in hiding for fear of
arrest. Bachman resided -here several
years prior to his death. The where
abouts of Addie Bachman are unknown.
Telegraphic Flashes.
A Wichita dispatch reports that por

blizzard. Arrivals from Englewood,
last night, report terrible losses among
stock, and on the ranges in No Man's

have died. -
The housetops in Charleston, 8.
were covered with a thin coating of
snow and sleet yesterday, for the first
time in 15 years. The mercury averaged

had a time getting along the sidewalks.
One Head Level Upon the Point Sadly
Deficient Here.
Concerning Delayed Trains and Acci
dents on the Kails.
Corporations Derive no Benefit by
Withholding Information of
TrafBc Affairs.
A question freely discussed by Thk
Chronicle has, it seems, been taken up
by Vice-President Hanrahan, of. the
Illinois Central railroad, who has made
a move that will meet with popular ap
proval. This consists in a circular sent
out to the agents, officers and employee
of his road, in which thev are ordered
"to furnish to the press the facts in mat
ters in which the public has an inter
est." The prevalent practice among
railroad people is to refuse information
concerning wrecks and disasters on their
lines, to the annoyance of travelers and
tne grave andneedle!s anxiety of their
friends. With all of their business acu
men, railroad managers have not yet
learned that the truth fully told con
cerning a disaster is never so bad as an
account gathered from affrighted pas
sengers, veiled in mystery and over
shadowed by uncertainty. We hold
that the public has a right to full and
reliable information relative to matters
so closely concerning it, as do any oc
currences that delay, its mails and dis
turb or obstruct its means of transport
Whether such information is witheld
in the spirit of arrogance, based upon
"none-of-y our-business" idea, says the
Oregonian, or with the view of keeping
up the confidence of the public in the
roads thus supervised, it is as mis
chevious and futile. It is equally im
possible in this country .to muzz e the
press or baffle the inquiry of its agents,
Railroad trains are not wrecked or de
layed privately, and news of such happen
ings, together with their cause, real or
supposed, and their details, accurate or
inaccurate, according to the source that
furnishes the information, will certainly
reach the public ear. Since this is true,
it is plain that the corporations derive
no benefit from witbolding information
upon these matters, and, moreover, that
in granting it promptly they will do no
more than a public duty contingent up
on the service they undertake to per
form in the transportation business. It
may be hoped, therefore, that the oolicv
oi vice-resident Hanrahan, of the II
linois Central, as above noted, will be
imitated by the managers of o.her rail
Let Well Knough Alone.
Oregonian. In the spring the United
States fish commission will send another
carload of eastern ' fish to stock the
streams and lakes of the Pacific north
west. ' Among the varieties that will be
brought will be black bass. This is
splendid game fish, but it is predacious,
and care should be taken to plant it
only in lakes and streams where good
trout fishing cannot now be had. Sports
men have no desire to give up trout.
even to secure black bass. The pickerel
and pike are two extremely voracious
fish, and should not be permitted to be
introduced here at all. They would not
furnish the sport the black bass would,
and would be far - more destructive to
trout. It is sometimes a good idea to
let well enough alone.
Mexican Troops Routed.
Laredo, Tex., Dec. 27. A battle took
place yesterday near Los Animas, . Mex
ico, east of Guerro, between 300 Mexi
can troops and 250 revolutionists, in
which thirteen soldiers were killed and
many wounded, aud.several revolution
ists were also killed and wounded.
Oregon's Day Blmeby.
Astorian. Papers throughout the east
are beginning to publish lists of the
states that are to be represented at the
World's Fair. To the shame and dis
grace of the people of Oregon, ours is the
only name that finds no place in them,
and the fact is made more noticeable by
the knowledge that our neighbors to the
north and south of us have each pre
pared a magnificent exhibit. It is true,
we believe, that the state board of horti
culture has actually got together a few
hundred pickled apples, pears, etc, but
we would suggest - that these, however
awe inspiring, are hardly representative
of lumber, fishing, or any of our promi
nent interests.

The Dalles Markets.
The Dalles, Dec. 23. The Dalles Itas
pot much to sayof iumurketa: Outside
of the holidity trade, fuines has been
normal. The tinual inquiry f'-r provis
ions and groceries has been of in usual
tenor, and prices remain steady, tn the
meat line there if a firm and npgrard
tendency, especially in bacon and hams,
prices have advanced somewhat and
from best advices the ton bus not been
reached. The short corn crop through-v
out the corn states thisyenir ijd the fail
ure in the loss of young hoggin the early
part of the yeHr by su.rms, has cut short
the nrk pack of the east, tiearly 50 per
cent, so it is stated, and prices will be
governed largely by this shortage of pro
duct. Our quotations on farm products are
without change
Butter and eggs are in fair supply and

in .quotations, mutton sheep are inj
gooa request ana prices are up. We
know of one lot of 1,500 lambs that were
sold on the top at $2.50 per head for the
coast market, this of course was top fig
ures as they were very fine. It is a con
ceeded point that all kinds of meats will
rule higher this season than they did
during the past. The reason is obvious
when we take into consideration that
the country is a resort for buyers for
meats for other markets, eastward.
