The Opportunity of a Life Time
Great Consignment Sale cf
On account of the pending hard times and the tightness of
the money jnarket several large San Francisco clothing concerns
have ronsiprned to us an immense stock of Men's, Boys' and
Children Clothing, which must be turned into money at once.
In order to accomplish this we have decided to reserve nothing,
but have marked every garment in the lot in plain figures at
prices that will certainly move them.

One Talks out lnv Meeting and
Scorches the Fish Commissioner,
The Willamette Fishermen's Union
held an open meeting at J ustice Schue
bel's office Friday night. The provij-
inno nf tliA npw fish lfiu'fl ns th(v affect
Clackamas connty was generally dis
cussed. It was shown that our fisher
men were unjustly discriminated
against in the provisions of the new .
law passed at the special session. The
full text of the complaints were printed
in last week's paper. At 11 o'clock Fri
day morning the union held a meeting
and appointed a committee to employ
counsel to contest the provisions of the
new law. It is understood that sena
tor Brownell has been retained as an at
torney for the fishermen.
President J. Y. Humphrey, of the
fishermen's union, states that nn the
10th day of April, fishermen will cast
their nets into both the Willamette and
Clackamas rivers, and if arrested, will
contest the law. The following shows
the discrimination in favor of fisher
men on the Uolumtjia, winie uiacna
mas county fishermen are left to fish for
eels: It is contributed by a well known
member of the fishermen's union :
The season openo April 15th on the
Columbia river and closes August 10th,
remaining closed 30 days, while on the
Willamette the season is closed 80 days,
beuinnine at the same time. There is
practically no closed season on the Co
lumbia in the fall, for there is usually a
large run of salmon in the river at the
lime the season closes. Salmon travel
on an average of four miles a day or 120
miles during the closed season of 30
days, which would protect them to the
mouth of the Willamette then ther
is 250 miles they are unprotected. The
be3t fishing grounds are from the Wil
lamette on up the Oolumbiaa, and the
wheels at the Cascades catch them by
tons; then comes the Dalles and Oelilo
falls, where but verv few fish ever pass.
September and October are the months
of spawning, therefore tho-e salmon
are ready to spawn when taken, If our
fieh commissioner is so anxious to pro
tect salmon, why don't he say some
thing about canning these very fish.
United States Fish Commissioner Hub
bard says that is a fact, for he has seen
salmon on the upper Columbia ready to
ship to the cannery that are not fit for
a dog to eat. They were spawning
when taken If our fish commissioner
is not discriminating and really wishes
to protect the palmon, why don't he
recommend closing the Columbia 00
days in the fall. .

Flexible Language. ,
' Portland, Ore., Mar 2d.
Editor Ooitrier-Hkrald, l;ear Sir:
Please allow me the space in the cul
ums of your paper to in ike a few re
marks about the Oregnnian.
In the political campaign of last
Bpring it made the statement: "Pnpu.
lists were afraid that the wnrkinnman's
dollar would buy too much," a'id if 1
remember riftht, it illustrated the state
ment by a cartoon. It failed to recoit-
nize that the worklngman man 1 nave
the dollar but had the dollar to net. and
this is what the populist had in mind
when he was afraid the dollar would
buv too much. It would buy too much
of the workingman. .
The coinage law of. gold Bays it is a
legal tender for ALL debts. The coin
aora law nf thn nnxtM dollar savs on the
fiVnnfthe dollar that it is not a leeal
t-nder for duties on import and inter
est on the public debt. Yet the ure-
imnmn nn the 4th oi last April says in
an editorial that bV Ct of congress the
paper dollar waa made an equal tender
with the anld dollar. Surely, the flex
ibility of language is only equaled by
he editorial initu ol the ure unan. .
Laat sDrinn I Kot into a dispute with
a gold-standard republican. He claim
ed that the republican party nau al
ways been in favor of the sold standard
while I was very certain that it had not.
We agreed to leave it to tin editor of.
the Oregonian. That piece of intelli
gence replied that it waa a question
that Could not be answered by yea or
no, and referred ub to the previous
platforms of the party for an answer.
Then thinking be had all the brains in
the world so that it would not be possi
ble for -us to come to a curtect c nidus
on. by reading the platforms, he volu i-
leired the information that una J never
been opposed to the gold-standard
The republican national platform of
181)2 is vrv much in favor of bi-metal-
lsm and vet tlie editorial asawru'-ii in
made that the party has never been op
posed to the gold-standard
I went and saw the editor about this
the other day and I couldn't get him to
acknowledge that he had wilfully lied
in the matter, but he jusunea nw po
sltion by claiming language is tne most
flexiiile'tliii'g in the world. ;
Mv dear xir, the most tlexioie mini?
in ihe world", and 1 guess he is ngtil
bout it. .
