of the American Grocer states in sub

salmon offered at auction the 9th tilt,
met with little support. Bids opened
at 15s. and stopped at 20s. It was
announced that 22. was the lowest
price acceptable, at which the lot vai
bought in. Tim goods were drawn

The body of the late Immanuel
Johansen was found yesterday morn
ing about fifty yards from whero he
fell in. A careful examination of the
body resulted in finding no external
marks of violence on the body, and
the inference is that the poor fellow,
fell on some lumber and rolled into
the water in a stunned condition. It
is certain that he made no attempt to
shoot himself and almost as certain
that it was a case of accidental drown
ing. Under the circumstances the
coroner did not consider it necessary
to put the county to tho expense of
holding an inquest. The funeral will
take place from the Episcopal church
at two o'clock this afternoon.

Yesterday's Oregonian contained
no reference whatever to Mr. Villard.
Tho iVcir said: "Henry Villard, ac

inspection trip about the Ainsworth
wharf yesterday afternoon. Ho seem

of the dock, but was told by one of
the employes that Monday was always
a alack day."
The bell tower was placed on
rollers yesterday and the structure
glided across Squemocqua street, to its
new site in tho rear of the city hall.
The change removes a prominent
landmark from the north side of the
street, the site of which will bo soon
covered by substantial buildings erect
ed by C&pt, Flarel. It is now about
x years since that gentleman gave
permission to have the bell tower
erected there rent free till such time
as he km ready to build. The struc
ture cost $1,200, including the bell
and ixs well served tho use for which
it wns attended.
The cost of the roadway to
Gniontown, past the Cutting Packing
Co., to connect Concomly street with
the county road to Smith's point it
about $1,G00; of this the C. P. Co.
pay about $400. leaving $1,200 for the
public. Of this latter sum about $G00
lmbeen subscribed without condit
ions attached. Some of this has been
collected but will be refunded unless
arrangements can be made to to throw
the road open to the public. This is a
clear case of "the greatest good to the
greatest number," and should not be
allowed to lapse.
At La Center on Lewis river, one
day last week a fisherman from this
city while fishing for trout, with
salmon roe for bait, hooked and land
ed a salmon of the siiverside variety,
weighing 14 pounds. The hotel
keeper there said it was the largest
hsu he had seen taken there with a
hook. Three more salmon were
hookod, bit succeeded in breaking
away from the lack of proper tackle.
It is generally understood that salmon
eat nothing after entering the river,

says: ihe writers knew it to be un

Walla wheat will comparo favorably
with that shipped by California, and
the cargo of the Gregory was a fair
shipment. The ship experienced ter
rible weather, causing leaking, and
the pumps becoming choked, were
useless. As the crew could not leave
the vessel they were compelled to re

from for days.

We learn of the death in Stock
holm, Sweden, on tho 9th of March, of
Pehr Thomason, at tho age of sixty-
five, a well knoxvn Swedish writer; his
name, n doubt, is familiar to many
of our readers, who, on hearing of his
death, will recall tho literature of their
childhood, the pure and simple stories
of peasant life. Though but of local
fame, around his name shall ever clus
ter holy memories, and on him will
the honor be bestowed of having laid
the foundation of literary taste among
the Swedish people. To the pure
moral tone of his novels, portraying
tho beauties of home life among the
dwellers in his native land, coming
years will be indebted for the happi
ness and liberty on Scandinavian soil.
