Public feeling at this great center
of the Salmon fisheries is concentrat
ing, and erystalizing adversely on the
aooointment of H. C McMasters as
Fish Warden of the State; the prin
ciple reasons given being the bad faith
shown by the Governor, who was
under the most solemn pledges to the
labor unions here to do for them
what he might, at all times, and who
has broken a tacit promis to certain
leaders, made less than a fortnight
ago to retain Mr. Van Dusen; the
second, and worse, premise being the
raw inadequacy of the man named.
The tendency of the whole thing be
speaking bad, and unwise, polities;
sheer gaming for votes and the firm
er interenchment of Geo. E. Cham
berlain in place and power.
Unless the people are very careful
to go to the bottom of this matter
and ascertain, and repudiate, its real
and reckless meaning, the salmon in
dustry will go glimmering, between
the commercial piracy of the up-iver
gang and the political stalling at
Salem. It is hard to tell which will
contribute most to the blasting of the
business, the shameless cupidity and
ruinses methods of the trapmen on
the upper reaches, or the reckless in
difference of the tricksters who have
thrown down the barriers by placing
it in the hands of an incompetent
The marvel of its salvation will be

may be the great organ of pure poli
tics and state-progress, balks at so

spirit and dare not endorse the ap
pointment; nor, in its delicate, non
partisan attitude, denounce it. But
all the same, Mr. Chamberlain has
put his "foot in it" up the the hip and

The whole country feels a deep in

Robley D. Evans is a name to con

great war captains and a master of
the craft of the sea in every sense; a
fighter, counsellor, and mainstay

AMERICAN BREAD RIOTS.
The riot in New York on Saturday
last, with its fell accompaniment of
bomb-throwing and death, is a bad
sign and should strike home to the
men and centers responsible for it.
The impression will have but short
way to go to find the cardinal cause,
since it dwells in that metropolis. It
is the London "bread riot" all over
again, whatever color may be lent
it by the development of the an
archistic brand and hand. And bread
riots are something new to our peo
As a usual thing our communal
troubles of this sort have arisen from
specific agencies other than the mere
hunger of the workless mob. They
have invariably been based on strikes
and other labor agitations, in which
something far different from an
empty stomach was at stake; or they
have found their root in bad politics
and misgovernment and the laches of
those trusted with high and import
ant dealings with the people. But
this demonstration is predicated upon
a deeper, graver and newer funda
ment than we are wont to know in
this country; one that calls for radi
cal and earnest work among those
who begot the cause, the millionairer
masters of the dreadful situation that
wrought the climax of Saturday.
Bread is a dangerous incitement when
the want of it drives men in herds
of thousands to acclaim their pangs,
and the wrongs behind that suffer
ing, and we had best move swiftly to
the cure by such legislation as New
York's Governor is able to dictate,
and other executives are able to fol
low, for the final elimination of this
curse, which in the sense of its ex
pression by the American masses is
wholly strange and repulsive.

Next to a circus in town a blood
hound rouses the greatest public in
terest when put on the trail of a
fugitive. The result is usually an ex
planation of how and why the scent
was lost, but a town can be depopu
lated any day by one bloodhound en

A philosopher denies saying that
two married people can live as cheap
ly as one. His assertion was that the
right kind of a girl can so manage
that she and her husband can get
along on the money that was suffi
cient for him alone. It is best not to
begin the experiment with car fare.
One of Vice-President Farbanks'
fellow Indianans, John W. Foster,
says Mr. Fairbanks is a descendant
of one of Cromwell's soldiers, is a
pioneer farmer's son, a self-supported
college student, a lawyer who has
not accepted a fee since he entered
the Senate in 1897, a nonuser of spir
its and tobacco, and an "orator who
is never bitter or vituperative." The
soildity of Indiana behind him as a
candidate is another proof of what
hi shome folks think.

MAGDALENA BAY, March 21,
via San Diego, Cal., Mar 30. The
four enterprising business firms who
set up their little stands along the
shore in front of the town are meet
ing with a depressing lull in trade,
with the fleet. The sailors are not
allowed ashore excepting now and
then a small squad in charge of an
officer for some particular purpose,
so that the much expected flow of
trade is languishing. The hot sands
along the beach are denuded of pro
spective customers and the imprompt
merchants are not at al sanguine of
the financial future of their ventures.
Their little shacks set along near the
pier, were constructed of pieces of
canvas or rudely arranged boards.
The weather is warm, day and jiight,
and little shelter is required. Large
stores of tobacco, fruit, stationery
supplies and liquors are stacked with
Two men from San Francisco,
Sullivan and Whitney, landed here
from Mazathlan two weeks in ad
vance of the fleet with a miscellan-
eous stock included beer and whiskey.
They had paid the Mexican duties on
it all. For days the local official's
refused to allow them to land it.
Then they were permitted to bring
it ashore, but the sale of the bever
ages were strictly forbidden.
"We can't do anything with it but
drink it up ourselves," said one of
the proprietors. One of them has
another large supply coming south
from San Francisco on a sailing ves
sel, which shipment he had ordered
before he knew of the embargo. He
will store that away with the contra
band when it arrives. Large ship
ments of Mexican oranges from
somewhere on the southern end of
the peninsula have been brought in
by boats four days from Magdalena, j
and are finding a ready sale at good
prices. Fresh fruit is a luxury great
ly esteemed by the officers and men.
Most of the merchants came from
Mexico City and their stocks of goods
came by rail to the western coast.
Many of them have been with the
fleet before in the capacity of shore
caterers but their experience at
Magdalena is something of a new
The Mexican customs officers is
keenly alert in his business. Lewis,
the bum boat man from the Atlantic
coast, narrowly escaped serious dif
ficulty with the authorities when he
attempted to barter his goods in the
bay without paying the required cus
tom duties. Only a diplomatic let'
ter to the authorities from Admiral
Evans saved the merchant man from
serious consequences. Others who
come here in similar request are not
likely to fare so lightly, according to
the statement of the Mexican officers.
