A BOUNTY NEEDED FOR SEALS
Allisiiia. Wash.. March '.- -In con
versation with a fishermtn conversant
with lln- fads your correspondent re
cently gleaned the following facts,
which should Is- pasted in the hats and
buuiHd into the heads of our state
legislators. After passing a bounty
law of 2.."0 per head on wild eat?
and omitting any remedial legislation
in the lien of extermination of the seals
and seal lions of the Columbia river
the said legislators are certainly en
titled to go way back and sit down. At
a conservative estimate then- are today
in the Columbia river 2,'HiO seals aver
aging 20 pound- jkt day of fish to eat.
to say nothing of thoe partially eaten
ami utterly destroyed for commercial
purposse. The fifty sea lions consume
probably 100 -mumls each per day lie
sides destroying many marketable sal
mon. Together these- vicious and
hungry water eats actually eat 4.'i.0u0
pounds per day of fish valued at ap
proximately o cents per pound meaning
i2.2."iti per day. As these -cals and
limis are in the river or off its mouth
.'liii days in the year the value of the
silmon actually eaten by them amounts
to out .S(m.(HM. The fisherman says
tiiese iiguies arc too small mat lie is
confident there ai? nearer 4.000 seali
in the river than 2000. If that bounty
law on wild cals is neec-sary and il
good thing as it undoubtedly is. how
much more is needs and demanded
by an industry thai i having twenty
per cent of its lifeldood taken from it

WHO KILLED HIM.
It will lie remembered that last
.fa rum rj ('. I). Moore was summoned
to Colorado by the death of his brother
who was presumed to have met death
by falling down a mine shaft but it was
remarked ill Ihe time that it was singu
lar that he could have fal
len 175 feet, struck on his head,
where there was the rim in wound, and
not. have bio head mashed beyond all
recognition. .Since the confessions of
Orchards and Adams implicating the
Miners' 1'nioti in the assassination of
the late (Jovernor Steuncnlierg of Idaho
and revealing their methods of making

to join the union and was outspoken and

Tho-. (',. W. O'Connor, pootmaster at
Xascl. was in town n day or two the
first of the week. Mr. O'Connor says
that a gentk-man, whom he supposes to
have leen Samuel Hill, spent a couple
of days at Xascl landing looking over
the country and asking a good many
questions. He did not give his name
but did admit that he was looking fop
a route for a railroad from some point
on the Columbia river through the
Deep River and Xasel river county to
South Bend. The same man, with
two or three others spent several
days in Deep river country and had a
sumeying party with them. It begins
to look as though several of the fertile
valleys of Pacific county are about to be
oK'ned to settlement and tillage. Wil
