- ' Sensational values are ruling for fall
' caught aalmon on toe Columbia river;
At title time tba cold storage operators
1 are aaid to be offering as high ti
' and io a pound for eteelheada. So great
Is the . demand for f reeling purposes
that some Intereata predict that the
' price will novo several cents higher
before lt movement la stopped for the
season. . The present price la one ef
the highest that ever ruled on the Co
lumbla for fall fish and ahowa the ex
' tent of the demand as compared with
- the current catch. Last year aa high
aa lo a pound waa paid for ateelheada
In a small way but this was only for a
fractional lot to fill In an order for a
oar. Cold storage, operators are thla
year gathering In all the supplies they
can possibly land and thla Inflicts much
hardship on the freah fish trade of the
coast. The spirited bidding has roada
the fishers the most Independent people
on earth and If one- firm will not pay
Thrtca lheg -tanotern'rt
too.; The result is that on aoeount
the extremely small auoDllea very
high prtcea may be the outcome of the
present competition xor xisn.

Practically all the eold atoraae fish
put up on th Columbia river Is
shipped In Ice to the eastern states,
where It Is again 'Shipped to the large
- Kuropean oentars. . At thla time of year
. , the ateelhead is the premier fish of the
river becauae It Is In muoh firmer eon-
dltlon than the famous Chinook. There
fore fishers receive a much better price
for the former than for the latter. Xnir
lng the spring season the Chinook sal-
mon Is frosen and f lnda Ita way to the
v large oltles of Kurope where prices are
obtained that would look ridiculous to

the fish Is caught Fifty, Tic and sven

Was One of the Greatest Party Or-
1 ganlzers of Hla Day.
From the St - Louis Republic.
Jefferson, who more than any other
man In American history stood for the
"sovereignty--whicft,- according to the
late George William Curtis, every
American ouaht to carry under hla
own hat ' was nevsrthsless the great
eat party organiser In American his
tory, as organiser oaiy two oiner
Americans are In his class. Ons Is
Abraham Lincoln. The other la An
drew Jackson. Both recognised party
organisation aa Inevitable if men who
think aiiae are to won iogmer ior
the common enda in view. Both saw
that whatever evils result from or
ganisation and co-operation In a re
public, there is no other way of car
rying on republican government In
dependence Itself makes 00-0 Deration
necessary and creates parties as a
means of expressing Itself.
r York Will Never Again
Forced to Pay High Rates.
From ths Bprlngfield Republican.
It la the atated opinion of the aotlng
comptroller of New York that the pro
eeeda of thla loan will carry the city
Into next aprlng and that It will nsver
attain be' forced to name ao high a rate
for ita loana -...;-
But if thar 1a a sincere belief and
ahould prove to be true, then no Justi
fication would exist for making a 10
year loan.. The city would do far better
to pay 6 or even more per cent for a
much shorter time. Of course, bids for
these city bonds will tske Into acoount
the chances that Interest rstes will
subside long before the 60 years are
past, snd the city will benefit from
thla; but for any corporation ta load
Itself ud with debt extending nearly
two generations at what may be a mo
mentary extreme of high intereat ratea.
thla Is a policy which cannot command
itseir to sober judgment.
