Each judge has his own man.
The supreme court has more
officers and men than any
similar institution in the world
thrice over. One thing the-judges
have not, except on days of cere
mony, and that is, carriages.
Many, indeed neatly nil of them, '
drive their own private carriages,
but in all other respects they are
about like cabinet officers, except
more so. "With $10,000 a rear

mankind, the supreme court judge
can walk along the flowery paths

idea that they are lucky as well as
Pacific Coast Fisheries.
The denizens of the Pacific coast
ate pre-eminently a fish-eating ;
people, to which fact, perhaps, may
be attributed the great brain force
which is so characteristic of all
who are so fortunate as to reside
in this part of the world. Accord
ing to Dittell, the statistician, the
weight of the edible fish caught in
a year is Sf,000 tons, equivalent to
100 pounds for each inhabitant of
the territory covered by the statis
tics. Oregon catches '.'OjOOO tons,
California ? ,000, Alaska o3,000,
and Washington Territory 2,300.
The salmon catch alone weighs
20,000 tons. The catch of shrimps
and crabs amounts to 3,2."0 tons,
and of abalones, oysters and mus
sels -1.000 tons. The value of the
annual catch (including the en
hancement in price by canning sal
mon) is -s9,tG,000. The fresh
fish are valued at $3,040,000; the j
crabs, shrimps, etc., at GG,000; the
oysfers, mussels, abalones, etc., at
S703,000. The annual products
of the fisheries of British Colum
bia are worth about $1,400,000,
and those of Pacific Mexico about
$100,000 making the total value
of the annual fish catch of our
coast almost 611,000,000.
Fraudulent Salmon Labels.
The San Francisco Grocer is on
the war path against fraudulent
salmon labels. It says that it is
rumored that parties are engaged
in labeling salmon at Humboldt
warehouse, and that a large lot of
Sacramento river fish is being
transformed into Columbia river
salmon. The article further states:
""What the salmon is which is be-
inir labeled at this warehouse we
are not able to state definitely, but !
the fact that a fictitious label is be- j
-j -ing used is a circumstance which
. points only in one direction. A
label seemed by our rcpresenla-

The Corwin, during her voyage
to Alaska, landed on St. Lawrence
island, having orders to investigate
the wholesale starvation of the na
tives. At the first village at which
they landed all weie dead; so also
at the second, where fifty-four
dead bodies were counted, neatly'
all-full grown males. At another
place 4.10 person-, men, women
and children wetc dead. At the
next settlement, twelve bodies,
and at the following thirty were
found. All the inhabitants on the
notth side of tin- island, where
whisky trader.- sold liquor?, are
dead, not one escaping. The gen
eral starvation occurred two yeats
ago last winter. Since then the
presence of the Corwin in the
Arctic ha- broken up this inhuman
trading in whisky. The empty
whisky kegs arc seen strewn all
about. The total number of dead
bodies found on St. Lawrence
island was over six hundred. The
survivors say that the white trad-
i ers ftom Honolulu sold whisky
which the natives bought and got
drunk on, remaining so during the
season for laving in their winter.
An Arab on entering a house

him the point of a pin is its head

His head must be wrapped up

The population of France ie-
mains almost stationary, although
the country suffers comparatively
little, loss from emigration. The
census just completed shows a
population of 37,012,048, against
oG.00o,7SS December 31, lSG.
The population in .May, I860, be
fore the loss ot temtory in the
Franco -German war. was 3S.0G7,
0G4. By the war France suffered
a loss of 5.384 square miles in teni
tory and of 1,90 1,1-1 3 in popula
tion, the population in May, 1S72
being only 30,102,921. Some of
the loss was made up by immigra
tion, yet notwithstanding this the
country has now : population less
by 4.00,000 than it had sixteen
years ago. At the present rate of
increase of population in Great
Britain and Ireland, the United
