At the recent anniversary of the

Grant by Lord Provost Sir James
EalshaTr, last week, Two thousand
persons were present. In reply to the
Lord Provost's speech, Gen. Grant
said: "I an so filled with emotion
that I scarcely know how to thank you
for the honor ' conferred upon me by
making me a Burgess of this ancient
city of Edinburgh. I feel that it is a
great compliment to me and to my
country. Had I the proper eloquence,
I might dwell somewhat on the history
of the great men you have produced;
of the numerous citizens of this city
and Scotland that have gone to Amer
ica, and the record they have made.
"We are proud of Scotchmen as citizens
of America. They make good citizens
of our country, and they find it profita
ble to themselves. I again thank you
for the honor you have conferred upon
me." Three cheers were then given
for the youngest Burgess.
From the Seattle Intelligencer.
"We are in receipt of a letter
from George T. Myers, superin
tendent of the Muckilteo salmon
cannery, in which he complains of
an article in last week's Snohomish
Star, making some "references to
allusions" (as Major Blake would
say) upon the firm of Jackson,
Myers & Co., for using labels prin
ted with Columbia river salmon
on their cans. These cans are put
up in cases bearing the stencil mark
of "Jackson, Myers & Co., dealers
in Hermetically Canned Salmon,
Muckilteo, "W. T.," on every case,
and no attempt to sell them as any
thing: but Puset Sound salmon has
been made by the parties packing
them for export. The Muckilteo
affair is a branch of Jackson, Myers
& Co.'s establishment at Kamier,
Oregon, and is purely an experi
ment. As far as the labels used
by them are concerned, they were
ordered printed in March, and did
not arrive till August 5th, whereas
the firm had everything at Muckil
teo "red hofj "by 25th of July.
Does any sane man suppose they
would go that long without labels.
This firm had a brand which al
ready stood as well as any other
Oregon brand of salmon in the
San Francisco market; does any
body suppose they would sacrifice
the reputation of that brand by
palming off an inferior article of
iish? True, the Puget Sound sal
mon lias not the oil of the Colum
bia river fish nor so brilliant a
color; but he has a finer grain and
a m-ore delicate flavor. Though
the Columbia river fish can be
canned more easily on account of
their size, yet the Puget Sound
salmon are so much more plentiful
that the balance is in favor of these
waters. So impressed are they
with, the importance of Puget
Sound fisheries that they are con
temr lating a removal of their works
to fciamish where they will open
next year on a much larger scale.
So far, they have canned about
4,500 cases, equal to 210,000 cans,
of which 1,519 cases have already
beeti shipped to San Francisco by
the JDakota, and 1,000 more are on
tlie .Nellie to be transferred to the
City of Panama on her arrival.
Our salmon are deemed identical
with those of the Fraser river and
they have stood the test of the
English, Scotch and Irish markets
successfully for the past six years.
Hen ce we have no fears of the out
come. Five years hence, will see
branches of all the leading; Colum-
bia river canneries here. If they
have good luck in Ma-, they can
stay at home where their own in
terests are; if they fail at home,
