Arrests and Prosecutions.
March 15 W. Peters and C. Osbourn
ef Oregon City were arrested by Water
Bailiff Wm. W. Smith for killing sal
mon within 600 feet of the Willamette
falls fishway. They were arraigned
before Justice of the Peace Levy Stipp
the same day and upon a plea of guilty
were each fined 15, under section 2063
of Bellinger & Cotton's codes, which
March. 20 complaint was filed against
Carl Johnson and J. J. Edgren by Wat
er Bailiff Smith for fishing for salmon
In the Clackamas. river during the close
season time. They were tried before
' a Jury In Justice Stipp's court, March
21, and the case ably prosecuted by
Deputy District Attorney C. Schuebel;
but on account of his not showing in
his testimony that the Clackamas river
is a tributary of the Willamette river,
the Justice instructed the Jury to find
for the defendant and they accordingly
brought in a verdict of not guilty.
March 31 Water Bailiffs Smith and
Rail seized two set nets that were
found in the Willamette river Just he
low the falls at Oregon City.
South Coos River Hatchery In con

In stocking the Coquille river with the
Chinok variety of Salmon. During the
past three years we have always di
vided the chinook fry raised at this
hatchery between the Coos and the Co
quille rivers, but the transportation for
the young salmon from the hatchery
around by Marshfield and Myrtle point
to the Coquille was difficult and not
always very successful, so upon look
ing into the matter for a substation
where the eggs could be taken when ln
the eyed state we found that over the
divide from the hatchery the north
fork of the Coquille came within a few
miles of the South Coos river, and by
a good mountain trail the distance, was
only about six miles to where a tem
porary station could be established.
This opportunity was taken advantage
ef and a substation established, and
between January 8 and 11, 2,000,000
of the eggs in the eyed atate were
transported thereto, l.SSO.ooo of which
were hatched and successfully' raised
nd liberated Into the said Coquille
luring the month of March.

to raise the theater licenses, compell

the saloon license to 1600 a year, ami
others favor Increasing the license on
vaudeville shows to $30 a month.
A few favor sn occupation tux. which
It is estimated will bring In a revenue
of about $2500 a year. Chairman Burns
of the ways and means committee, is
opposed to the occupation tax, believ
ing that the merchants are assessed
too much already. It is pointed out
that merchants pay county and state
taxes, high rents and exhorbltant In
surance. They are also compelled to
buy tickets to every entertainment and
show that comes along; contribute to
building county roads and pay out con
siderable to bury paupers and for local
There is no doubt but that Mr.
Burns is right In his opinion. The mer.
chants are already overburdened, not
only by every petty graft, but by ex-
vesslve expenses, and the money even
tually must come out of the consumer.
Merchants cannot sell gods and com
pete with Portland if they are taxed
more than their goods will stand. This
would Injure Astoria and be the mean
of sending a large number of peopl
to Portland to trade. Merchants, as
rule believe In patronising home Indus
tries and they often sell at very close
margins ln order to keep the trade at
As to the policy of increasing the sa

The proposition to rales the license

over 10 times the population. These

of the Shamrock, who operates an In
dependent boat, and who has refused
to sell out to the Callender company,
although they state that they have of

worth. Yesterday morning the steamer
Melville of the Callender company
went to the slip at the foot of Twelfth

It Is claimed that the building was
owned by Capt Jordan, one of the
members of the Callender company,
and that he had been ordered to re
move it by Superintendent McGuIre of

on their right of way.
Charles H. Callender states that
every effort has been used to either
buy or sell with Plckerneli and he has
refused every overture. He also stat
