A well-informed cannryman ex
presses the opinion that owing to the
exodus of fishermen to northern wat
ers and to the mines, about one-third
of the thousand fish boats on the
lower Columbia will be In use Curing
the coming season. While this will
probably not very largely affect the
siie of the pock It will be very much
to the benefit of the Individual fish
ermen who remain, as with fewer nets
In the water their catches will be larg
er. The advances made to fishermen
this winter for new gear and supplies
have been small compared to former
Fulton lime., attorneys for the A. &
C. It. R., yesterduy filed In the circuit
court a motion (for a new trial In the
case of Mrs. 1-aia Scott against the
company. The Jury recently gave Mrs.
Scott Itooo. The motion is based on the
alleged action of one of the Jurors, who
la said to have become intoxicated
during the consideration of the case.
It la charged that he left the Jury
room and went to a saloon, where he
was found by the sheriff, an affidavit
from whom accompanies the motion.
The affidavit Is to the effect that the
Juror was Intoxicated. It is also urg
ed that the evidence presented at the
case was Insufficient to Justify the ver
dict, and errors of law are also said
to have been made at the trial. At
torney Noland, for Mrs, Scott, has
been granted 10 days in which to file
an answer to the motion.
J. H. D. Gray, president of the Ore

Recent occurrences Wave called worla
wide attention to the high character of

evidence of the thrift and skill of the

policy-holders or holds for their bene
