Seufert Bros. Employ Guards to Pre
vent a Repetition of Astoria
Russian Finns are running the fishing
business with a high hand down at As
toria. Michael Pecovitch, a native of Aus
tria, but a naturalized American citi
zen, while engaged driving piles in the
river for trap fishing was approached bv
a fleet of some 200 of these Russians,
and compelled on pain of death by
hanging, to pull up the piles he bad
driven, and set them loose on the ocean.
He says he is a ruined man, but will try
to get damages from the county allowing
such an un-American procedure on
American soil. While Pecovitch' was at
woik destroying his own property, an
other boat came over with a Russian
brass band, and the incongruity was wit
nessed of a mob of unnaturalized foreign
pirates forcibly destroying an American
citizen's property, with a brass band
standing by playing "America," and
the leader of the mob with a rope in his
hands ready to commit murder.
Pecovitch said : "At about the time
that half my property had been de
stroyed, another fishing boat came over
with a lot of young Russian Finn women,
dressed up in their holiday attire, and
then the mob turned itself loose for a
good time. They cheered and sang and
shouted, and the men fired off guns, and
all had a regular jollification while my
property was being destroyed. They all
stayed until the last pole was pulled up,
after which the leader ordered all to
leave and, before going, he warned us
never again, on paiD of death, to attempt
to put down traps in the Columbia river.
I am a ruined man. I had . bought gear
and made every preparation for the
season's fishing, and my loss will not be
less than $500." -
Mr. F. A. Seufert of this city, who has
large fishing interests above The Dalles,
has ebecome fearful that bis property
may be destroyed by fire by some of
these Russian law-breakers, as they
have threatened - that will allow no
wheels to run on the entire river, unless
the 5 cent rate ia paid. Seufer Bros.
paid 3 cents last year, and they got
along harmoniously with their men, and
there waB no trouble. To prevent some
Astoria foreign tough coming up on the
night train firing bia wheels, and re
turning again the same night, Mr.
Seufert has placed guards at all of his
wheelB and the cannery, and haa pub
lished and posted the following notice:
The Dalles, Or., Apr. 10, 1896.
Owing to the trouble between the
Fishermen's Union, and the Columbia
Packers' Association, which started at
the mou'.h of the river several nights
ago, we warn the public not to trespass

guarda on them and will maintain our
righta to our property against lawless
ness, if any attempt ia made to destroy

Oregon State Democratic Conven-
tion in Session.
Portland, April 9. "Free silver, and
plenty of HI'.' seems to be the shibbo
leth of the Democratic state convention
in session in A. O. TJ. W. ball today. At
the caucus held last night, so report haa
it, it waa determined to ignore all aspir
ants to political favor at the hands of
this convention who would not unquali
fiedly subscribe to the 16 to-1 article
faith. This also was the burden of talk
in the Hotel Perkins corridors before,
the convention was called to order thisVlocal which arrived Udy noon. A
forenoon. presaging ; that silver, and
nothing but the white metal will be the
momentum to sway this body of repre
sentative Democrats. "
The sound-money Democrats who' were
quartered at the Imperial, at a caucus-
held by them last night, reached the
conclusion not to enter the lists for the
permanent organization of the conven
tion, aa they are outnumbered by about
two to one. Thia faction ia opposed to
making the money question an issue at
this time, and advocates its relegation to
the national convention.
The foreshadowing was verified in all
its'essenUals daring this forenoon's ses
sion of the convention, which was called
to order by D. W. Bears of Independ
ence, chairman of the state committee,
at 10 :15 o'clock. To the credit of the
gentlemen comprising this convention it
must be said that at the outset they
conducted themselves as if they were in
a church, but subsequent proceedings
were marked by the noisy features at
