Mr. S. L. Brooks has been advised by

The Dalles a regular station. Mr.
Brooks, who has for a long time been a

application for this point to become a
regular station some time ago. One of
his arguments was that the atmospheric
conditions are such in this part of Oregon,
and so distinct from Western Oregon,
that for accuracy of detail it seemed
absolutely necccssary that a weather
bureau station should be established

A Very Successful Season on the Clti:ti
oia Kivep Tliis tear.
The sight of eighteen tons of salmon
caught in one day, and hauled across
the ferry to the ealinery from Grand
Dalles, as was seen yesterday, leads to
thoughts of this industry. Years ago
the great h;ie .and cry was that the
river would be fished out. Perhaps it
would, but for the wisdom thatjhas pro
vided the hatcheries. "And right here is
where the much abused fish commission
conies in for a duly earned niede of
praise for their efficient services. There
is fish enough and to spare, this season,
to keep up the reputation of the Royal
Chinook Salmon in the markets of the
world. Twelve million dollars' capital
is engaged in the work of catching and
curing him, and the Columbia is the
only known river where he is to be
found. The merits of Columbia salmon
are well known. It is richer and of
finer grain than any other. It excels all
other salmon as a "tenderloin steak does
a piece of sole leather. It is packed bv
hand, with the greatest care by canneries
of the highest standing, which have
been in the business many years and re
gard the reputation of their brands as
part of their stock in trade. In Alaska
the salmon ia .packed entirely by
machinery, and skin and tails are as
likely to be packed all in one can as
any other portions. Despite the re
ported shortage, and the near approach
to the close of the season, the Columbia
river salmon will hold its own. ,

The Old Time War Against tne Pilot
The people of Oregon will never con
sent to pay the Columbia bar nor river
pilots, out of the state treasury. This
Columbia river bar business has for 25
yeara been run in the interest of Port
land, and if Portland wishes to make a
deal with Clans Spreckels, let Portland
put up for the expense of it. The Dalles
will be compelled to take an unmistak
able hand in this matter at no very dis
tant day. Col. McCraken says there is
nothing in the way just now,, if Gov.
Pennoyer will consent to the scheme
and recommend it in his message;
"then," says the Colonel, "we would
have no difficulty in giving Mr. Spreck
els a guarantee bond, and then he would
immediately send up -his tugs." The
attempts to hog the wages of the pilots
will meet an unexpected opposition in
the next assembly. One of their num
ber, Capt. Campbell, will himself be in
the assembly, one of his positions will
be this : "There is no state in the union
where pilots are handicapped as they
are here. The pilots of San Francisco
are an independent body of men who
are not subject to any corporation . They
receive their license from the state, file
their bonds, and whatever they earn be
longs, to them. Let the Portland cham
ber of commerce examine the pilot laws
f every state oa the Atlantic seaboard,
and they will find that what a pilot
earns belongs to himself, provided he
complies with the law. Why did the
Portland merchants sell the tug Pioneer?
The pilots should be entirely distinct
from the towage business and should be
at liberty to collect what the law of Or
egon allows the pilots for their services.
There should be no deductions." The
general sentiment of shipping men is in
accord with Captain Campbell. They
hold that the shipping of the Columbia
is nor,- able to support an efficient body
of pilots and that these pilots should
not be hired by any corporation or firm
but should be free to exercise their call
ing as arc the pilots of all other ports.
They hold that this will be best for the
ship owner , and the port. The pilots
earn all that the law allows them. They
deem it nonsense to depend on the state
voting any money for pilotage. They
simply want to be let alone, and to have
the same rights ac corded them as are ac
corded in New York and other ports,
where the most iowerf ul companies that
pay thousands annually for pilotage are
.not allowed to interfere with the pilot
