Prrby Scott Dead. The steamers
Telophon! and Bailey Galzert were
carrying their flags at half mast last
Tuesday, and upou inquiry it whs
learned that Psrry Scott, brother of
Captain U. B. Scott, was dead. Perry
Scott has for many years been engaged
as engineer on river steamers in tbis
district. He was a native of Ohio,
and at the time of the breaking out of
the civil war, was master meobanio of
the Erie railroad. He resigned this
position to eulist in the service of the
government and for a long time was
chief engineer on a gun boat. After
the olose of the war Perry and U. B.
Scott came to Oregon and built the
first successful light draught steamer
that ever plied tho Willamettee river.
It was the Ohio, now known as the
Salem, having in later years been re
built by William Keid. Later on they
built other steamers among thorn be
ing the Telephone, Fleetwood, Flyer
and City of Salem. The life of Perry
Scott has been one of activity.

It is now thought the fUhermens'
strike will be ended by tbe first of
May. It is slso generally believed the
fishermen will be successful in their
efforts to maintain a fair price for their
labor. Strikes are not generally con
ducive to the publio good, but it must
be admitted that there are times wben
extreme measures appear to be the
only remedy. And in applying these
extreme measures no property should
be destroyed or statute violated. Mod
eration ia the great remedy for these
social eruptions, without which great
injury is often inflioted upon innocent
Poor Outlook for Salmon.
Astoria, April 22. Tbe opinion is
growing steadily among canners and
fishermen that, in case a settlement of
the strike is brought about, tbe effect
on general business will not be appre
ciable, owing to the great scarcity of
salmon. Those of tbe fishermen who
have cast their nets, iu order to sooure
salmon for home consumption, have
not aucoeeciea in catching more than
three or tour fish, and B. A. Seaborn.
thellwaoo cannoryman and trapowner,
says that the Baker's bay traps are not
calohing any more salmon than the
residents of Ilwaco are able to dispose
of among their families.
The scarcity of fish may be the
means of hastening a settlement of
the strike, as it ia considered a fore
gone conclusion that the total paok
for 1891) will not exoeed zou.Uuu cases
of spring fish, even granting that all
the canneries arc in operation by May

though tbe canners' are outwardly
