Tho Wide West is making splendid
time now between Oregon's chief

The telegraph conveys the impor
tant news that when President Arthur
was going on board the boat that con

books to road; "Talcs from Black

is left wholly to conjecture. We are
also informed that a warrant has been
issued in Boston for tho arrest of a
negro named Cauliff.
Henry Yillard and party leave
San Francisco on the Queen of the Pa

special train which brought him over
the C. P. flew across the alkali faster
than was ever done before except on
the occasion of the Jarrett & Palmer
trip eight years ago. When the train
arrived at tho summit of the Sierras
and started down the western slope it
made extraordinary time. From
Truckce, 190 miles westward to Sacra

tunity to also build up a fruit canning
business at this place.
Tho usual installment of postal
cards saying "Please send me a copy
of your valuable paper, I am thinking
of emigrating to Oregon," was in
yesterday's mail. Those follows seem
to have the idea that men in Oregon
run newspapers for the fun of tho
thing. True, we own six corner lots
hers, and are afraid to name a price
for aay ono of 'em lest some one
shoald pick us up; equally true that
we've got a third interest in tho O. R.
& K. Co.'s steamers; yet as a matter
of principle we decline sending papers
to men that aro "thinking of coming
to Oregon" unless tkey send a stamp
t carry them (the papers) back. If
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat will give
publicity in its columns to this pro
nunciamonto it will confer a favor on

Mr. Wm. B. Adair proprietor of
the British Union Packing company,
returned to the city yesterday after an
absence of nearly a year. Mr. Adair's
cannery is on the Frazer river, about
Gfteen miles below New Westminster,
B. C. He reports business of all
kinds in tho Dominion in a prosper
ous condition, especially in relation to
tho Railroad, the advent of which gives
a wonderful impetus to that country.
The canning business on the Frazer he
considers as being overdone; the ten
dency is to multiply canneries, end it
is probable that one or tw o le3s will
run this season than did last. Mr.
Adair is looking extremely woll and
speaks favorably of his own prospects.

A good deal, wise and otherwise, is
said and written in our contempora
ries regarding tho salmon, probabili
ties and possibilities, aud sometimes
abroad as well as at homo there is
considerable diversity in statement.
A dispatch which was sent from this
city last week that the Gshermen were
catching 125 Gsh to the boat repre:
sents ono extreme. Other statements
iu reference to an extraordinarily
heavy run, or an unusually light run,
are also to bo taken cum grano salts.
"An extensive San Francisco repre
sentative" recently read to a Chronicle
reporter an extract fr.m a letter
from Astoria, in which the writer f&W. .
that the supply of Gshermen w.uu!-'
adsquate and that for the next three '
months good, skillful fishermen could
Gnd piying employment on ilir Col
umbia. The jrtme letter statrri tiia .
there has been less snow on thf water-shed
of the Columbia this year'
than for many years and the outlook
was for moderate water and a moder-,
run of salmon. It wa3 conceded by
the agents that the high price cannot
stand, unless the snpply fails entirely
to meet the demand, and that so lung
as tho Gsh ran small, with three and
one-fourth to tho case, it would be im
possible for tho canners to do any
Tho Liverpool Grocer, o f latest date
to hand reperts: "Tho return of cold
weather during the past week has
caused a slackening of demand for
salmon, and holders havo shown a
disposition to grant some slight con
cession in order to induce dealers to
make bids. There is ovcry probability
of a good demand after Easter, and it
is generally believed that tho con
sumption is proceeding steadily, aud
as importations have now ceased and
stocks aro firmly held, we look for a
steady trade at stoady prices. An
other report from the same quarter
regarding the salmon market states
that tho demand for the season of the
year is exceedingly quiet, in conse
quence of tho very few inquiries from
the large dealers who experience the
samo position in the country, and this
is only to be accounted for by the
numerous arrivals of Columbia river
salmon, which take place in so limited
The Gazette says: "The salon
market remains entirely without
change and shows great want of ani
mation. Prices are unchanged and
Grm at last quotations."
Mysterious Disappearance of a
Considerable interest is felt regard
ing the whereabouts of tho STaynct,
which left here about ten days ago for
a trip to Young's river. A short time
ago Messrs. Hess and Gibson sold the
boat to two parties whose names we arc
unable to give. They loaded her with
freight from here consisting of flour,
bacon, lumber, etc., for Messrs. Col
man, Tucker, Sales and others living
on Young's river. Nothing was heard
of her since she left, and yesterday
Mr. Tucker sent iu to Wilson &
Fisher taking where his provisions
were. The fact that a sack of flour
marked for Colnian was found last
Tuesday on the tide land, and that u
broom and two spruce planks floated
ashore glve3 rise to the suspicion that
the Magnet struck a snag or elso
sprung a leak and sunk. The men
that bought the craft are reported all
right Jaa they were seen heading for
Tillamook last Monday.
