Fishing on the Bar.
FOItT CANBY. V, Tm May 29, 1879.
Yesterday evening at sun set, the
sea was calm at the baron the Coin in-
bia, and up to the light-house. Sev- i
eral fishermen spread their seines
along the water, between the point at
the batteries and Sand island. Some
time in the night a wind sprang up
from the south, and the breakers set
in towards the shore. Early this
morning a blue fishing boat was dis
covered capsized, and at the rocks
close to the light-house. Two boats
and six men went round the point
from the wharf, near the suttlers store,
and brought in the boat and seine.
These men reported that the two fish
ermen in the wrecked boat were
Soon after this it was discovered
that a very long seine was in the
breakers, and no boat near it. A
steamer passed round to it, but it was
afoul, and could not be recovered.
So when the tide passes out towards
noon to-day, it will take the seme into
the ocean. The property belonged to
two Italians who were drowned. The
opinion seems to prevail amongst some
of this fishermen on the bajT that there
are better fishing grounds west of
Sand island, than higher up in the bay.
But I am assured by Captain Hewett
that it is extremely dangerous to fish
on these groii nds. The sea may appear
calm and all appearances fair, when
all of a sudden a breeze may spring
up, and the breakers begin to roll m
towards shore, and a large wave may
come in behind the boats and capsize
them in a moment. In that case the
men would be drowned, and the
property perhaps lost. Fishermen
should take warning of these facts.
Breakers are rolling northward, along
the west side of Sand island, at a fear
ful rate this morning. No marvel
that the Great Republic broke up
where she ran aground. Nothing is
seen of the wreck now but the wheels
and the walking beam.
Six o'clock p. m. Another seine
lost to-day in the breakers, and the
two passed out to sea. Part of one of
them was seen this evening, a little
west of McKinzie head, entangled
among the rocks. David Newso.me.
Itoltl Attempt at Robbery,
A very desperate attempt at rob
bery was made night before last at
Barth & Meyers saloon on Main
street, which we have refrained from
commenting upon sooner in the hope
that some arrests would be made. Two
fellows, one of whom is known to be a
gambler in straitened circumstan
ces, entered the saloon and called for
drinks. Mr. Geo. Heller, the saloon
keeper, was alone at the time. He
set up the drinks, when one of the
pair asked for the water-closet, and
was shown the way. He was followed
by the other fellow, who immediately
returned to the bar room in excite
ment saying some accident had be
fallen his companion. Heller went
to see what was the matter when the
"dead fellow" met him with a cocked
revolver and told him to shell out.
The other fellow stood behind Heller.
Heller put his hand down as if to
pungle coin, when he pulled his pistol
and fired at the man m front of him,
who returned the fire, and both ran i
away. The pistol shots were heard by
various persons, and the bullets left
their mark iu the wall and fence. It
seems to us that a reward should be
olfered for the arrest of the scoundrels.

Colonel btewart announces bv
advertisement in the Alta, that on
j,n(l after the 5th of June, the
Board of Army Engineers for this i
coast will hold sessions at his j
office, to hear the views of persons
interested in the location ot a har
bor of refuge between San Fran
cisco and the Straits of Fuca. The
latter point is named in the adver
tisement, but the northern limit is
really the Columbia river. Be
tween latitudes 3S and 46 the
half-way point would be 42 . The
engineers have already given some
consideration to the subject, and
expressed a preference for Trini
dad, in latitude 41 and 3 min
utes. "With that preference we
have no fault to find, except that
it was made without consulting
the hydrographic engineers of the
Pacific Coast Survey, whose chief,
Professor Davidson, was recently
sent round the globe by the gov
ernment with instructions to study
the subject of breakwaters on his
Selling Liquor to Inebriates
"We are informed that an act of
the assembly passed in October
lSib, relative to selling nquor
minors and inebriates, will
strictly enforced hereafter in
toria. The following is the
act referred te:
It shall be unlawful for any person
knowingly sell, bT agent or other-
wise, any spirituous or other intoxi
cating liquors to any minor, for any
purpose whatever, unless upon the
written order of his parent or guardian
or family physician, or to sell the
same to any intoxicated person, or to
any person who is in the habit of be
coming intoxicatod, and any person
violating the provisions of this section
shall forfeit and pay to the school
fund the sum of one hundred dollars
for each and every offense, to be col
lected by action on his bond, by any
citizen of the county where such of
fense may have been committed.
A Hard Shot nt Boocher-
Henry Ward Beecher has been on a
lecturing tour through the south. He
was generally well received, but with
no noisy exhibition of hospitality. The
people were anxious to see him on ac
count of his notoriety, and he had
large audiences, both as hearers and
street-gazers. On his return trip he
stopped at Cincinnati. The working
men of that city having no very ex
alted opinion of the man, on account
of some of his recent utterances, cele
brated the event by a banquet at Hi
bernia hall, in which the "viands"
consisted solely of bread and water,
dealt out on tin plates. This was to
remind Mr. Beecher that a dollar a
day, upon which he thinks a laboring
man can subsist, would not justify a
sumptuous spread. After the feast
the plate3 were sold at auction. The
Brooklyn clergyman is accustomed to
nave harsh words spoKen or nunseir,
and by this time has got prett- well
used to it. Of one thing he must be
convinced, however, which is, that he
is more popular with his Plymouth
congregation than with the masses of
the people, who feel that there is no
mutuality of sympathy between him
