fields that last year averaged .25 to 30

United States fieh com
misioner iiubbard, in charge of the
Clackmas salmon hatchery, ia making
extensive preparations for the coming
season's work. The racks across the
Clackamas, washed away by the spring
freshetshave been rebuilt by more sub
stantial structures furyu?r up stream so
that no salmon will be lost this year by
early migration to the headwaters of the
river." The 'troughs in the hatchery, are
in excellent condition, ' anil everything
is In readiness far beginning work. - Op
perations will begin about the 1st, of
September, but "it i 8 not thought that the
season will be a very successful one for
the hatchery... Withr the- hundreds of
fishing-boats, fish 'wheels and ' nets in
the Columbia and Willamette to pass, a
salmon, is extremely lucky if. Jt reaches
the .Clackamas river." .It will "have " to
pass many niore nets before the hatchery
is reached. , Last year the hatchery
turned out about 3,500,000 young sal
mon and. the .output for the present year
is not expected to be' any larger." The
hatchery has . a '.capacity for turning
out about' 10,ti00,000 salmon annually.

What -will be the only ehip railway in
North America' is" rapidly approaching
completion." It is destined to convey
vessels over the isthmus of Chignecto,
narrow strip of land which joins the
province of Nova Scotia and New BrauE
wick, a distance of seventeen miles,
The first project was tne" Baic'Verte
canal scheme, by which it was proposed
to make a cut between the gulf of St,
Lawrence and the bay of Fundy through
this isthmus and so avoid the long de
tour round Cape B rcton and Nova'Scotia

transportation will be" ilaced. The loco
motives,; two ot which, will he used in
drawing the vessel across the. isthmus,
are.. built on the same principle, as ordi
nary engines , Lu t of m uoh" greater weight
and power. ' . . ' .
The veseels to be transported will be
hoisted , by hydraulic power from the
basin to the trackj and it is estimated
that w ith this power and the roadbed in
good condition a ship'ot ordinary capac
ity will lo taken from the bay of .Fundy
and placed jn the gull of St.' ' Lawrence
in two ami a half hours, though a speed
of ten miles an hour is obtained. During
the coming year the. Cbignecto marine
transport "railway should be in ; active
operation, and a., saving on each, trip
will be effected of 500 miles. It would,
however, be more prudent to say that
the company will . be feady to handle
whatever business offers, because., it is a
matter of pure speculation as to the earn
ings of the euterpr.ee.
"The tariff for lifting and 'hauling ves
sels over,the railway will be fifty . cents
per ton for cargo and twenty-five cents
per ton for hull, so that a vessel of 1,000
tons would pay $750 for transportation.
The permanent success of the scheme is
looked Upon as highly . problematic, for
the class of schooners engaged in this
trade at present are totally unable to
bear any tuch charges, and the prospects
of traffic in ships between Lake Ontario,
St John and "BoBton,' which 'some!"people
have alleged, would accrut-, are altogether
