Fisherman Found Dead In ('nloniown
A peculiar tangle of namo ha been
woven In the endeavor to mtabllxri the
Id'-niliy of a fisherman who wa dis
covered dead on the bea'.-h opposite Han-
born cannery yesterJay morning at
Juybr'.-jk. The night prevloua the man
had been seen In the locality in a state
of Intoxbailon, and It I thought that
he accidentally fell over the. railing of
the roadwiy and dropped to' the beach
twenty-five feet below. When found,
the man neck wo broken and death
had probably been Instantaneous,
l'ur"r found on the body Identified
the man u Gabriel Clman . From an
acquaintance Coroner Pohl learned that
the man' real nme wa John Hlr
tala. Last night a man una Bering to
the name of Gabriel C'olman appeared
and stated that the dead man a name
waa John Mattson, he hiving been
granted citizenship papers und"r that
name. Colman ald i hat deceased had
a brother. Ne Matton, living near
Olney, who had been no'lfled of hi
brother' death and would arrive today
to arrange for the burlJl. At the

Ml-VH INTEREST MANIFEST.
Much Interest has been manifested in
local musical circles over. the coming
apiearance of Paloma and Karla
Schramm In Astoria. They will give
two concerts at the Methdlst church
tomorrow afternoon anJ evening, and
the admission will be 50 cents for adul's
ind 25 cents for children. The program
for the afternoon concert will be pre
pared with a special view to the desires
and taste of the children.
A San Francisco paper In speaking
of Paloma's appear.uice In that city,
"Amorg the crowj at the concert,
there was not one listener, one ventures
to say. who sat quite unmoved. Some,
musically sensitive, were profoundly
touched, raderwakl stirred the depth
of us, because he had known all life,
and possessed the tremendous power
which such cognition gives to a great
soul. Paloma Schramm accomplishes
the same result In us through her very
Innocence, and her essential childish Ig
norance of the meaning of existence."

BENEFITS OF HATCHERY
WARDE VAN DUSEN REPLIES
TO MR. REED.
Says Salvation of Future of Fish
Ing Industry In In Artificial
Misier Fish Warden H. G. Van Du
sen differs with W. H. H. Reed, of Cor
bet t. Oreg'in, as to the value of .arti
ficial propagation to tht fishing indus
try. In an Interview- with an Astorlan
reporter Mr. Reed declared that all
that was lecessary for the replenish
ing of the stream was th rlgorou
enforcement of the closed eison. He
atatel that the fish would thn seek
their natural spawning grounds unmo
lested and that young fry born amid
natural surroundings would be more
capable of self-protection than would
fish turned out from a hatchery, where
they bad been fed and cared for.
Mister Warden Van Dusen, In an in
terview yesterday. ald: "There Is no
denying that something la diminishing
the annual run of fish and some plan
I necessary to replenish the stream.
Personally I believe that the salvation
of the Industry lie !n artificial propa
gation. As nearly as can be estimated
one and one-half million fish are taken
from the Columbia each year. Last
vear the Washington hatcheries turned
1.6'5,)0 young fry Into the Columbia
an l tls tributaries. Oregon turned In
3.670,000 and the government hatcherle
had an output of S.&S8.000. making a
total of 2S3.000. Experts have found,
as the result of careful experimenting,
that ten per cent of artificially propa
gated fish live to attain naturlty, and
this ratio would Insure a desirable
yearly Increase In the annual run.
"The artificial hatchery of salmon is
still in an experimental stage but cer
tain facts have been demonstrated o
often that they mut be accepted as
truth. About five per cent of the eggs
spawned In a natural state are hatched
whereaa In the hatcheries fully ninety
five per cent are saved. As to the lat
ter fish blng devMd of Instincts of pro
tection there is difference of opin
ion and experts are watching young fry
with a view to arriving at a more defi
nite understanding. Some declare that
th" fry should be turned Into th riv
er at the time they begin to feed. Oth
ers are positive that the best results can
be gained by keeping them in the hatch
eries until six months have elapsed, by
wh'ch time they will have reached a
growth of from four to six inches.
"If the six months' plan was gen
erally adopted It Is quite possible that
the fish would have lost self-protection
Instincts, because of continued feeding,
without exertion. However, these are
mere details of the methods which
meet the disapproval of Mr. Reed.
There can hardly be any doubt but that
artificial propagation has been of much
benefit to the fishing Industry, and Its
potential Importance must necessarily
receive a great deal of attention. Dur
ing my administration of the office of
master fish warden I will pay partlcu
Hir attention to the hatchertes and at
the expiration of a year expect to have
figures that will prove beyond contra
diction the value of artificial propaga
tion. "I think that with adequate hatchery
facilities the annual run in the river
can be Increased to a considerable ex
tent. We shall use every effort to en
force the laws of the closed season, so
that the fish may reach their natural
spawning grounds. In regard to the
hatchery work for the coming year the
most Important action of the state
board of fish commissioners will prob
ably be in agreeing to the transfer of
the Wenatchee hatchery from Wash
ington to Oregon. We expect to turn
Into. the Columbia during the coming
year from twelve to fifteen million fry.
and under exceptionally favorable con
ditions the aggregate may reach twenty
Warden Van Dusen received a letter
yesterday from Representative B. L.
Eddy, of Tillamook, stating that he was
taking steps -to gain desired informa
tion as to the most desirable site In
the vicinity for the location 0f a hatch
ery. Mr. Van Dusen will proVvaoly
leave shortly for a trip to Tillamook
and will inspect the various sites of
ferred. A letter was also received from
Deputv Sheriff E. C. Greenman. of Ore
gon City, who has been employed by
the warden to aid In enforcing the
laws affecting the closed season, in
which the writer siid that there was
no attempts made during the last days
of the closed season and the deputy
is preparing for a vigilant patrol of the
river and all vlolaters will be prosecut
ed to the fullest extent of the law.

THE BOER WAR.
The latest news from South Africa
Indicates a speedy anu peaceful termin
ation of the conflict that has been
raging for the past two years. War Is
a terrible '.hing and has slain thousands,
but stomach troubles, we believe, have
slain even more. When the stomach is
out of order the entire system euffers
and disease takes an easy hold. To
Insure health and long life keep the
stomach in good condition by the use of
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. The next
time you are troubled with dyspepsia,
Indigestion, biliousness, constipation or
any other disorder of the stomach do
not fail to give It a trial. It will cure
these ailments and prevent malaria, fe
ver and ague. Insist on having the
genuine with our Private Revenue
stamp over the neck of the bottle.
