A noticeable feature in the minor
details of growth is the constantly in
creasing number of vehicles. The
latest arrival came upon the Queen
yesterday. It is a two wheeled ar
rangement, is a model of comfort and
neatness, and when its owner, Capt.
Hustler, gets his three minute nag
Prince between the shafts, he will
have a turn out as good as the best.
As a pointed illustration of the
growing tendency of young men to

Of salmon the California Grocer
awl Canncr of the 28th ult says:
Columbia river Gsh are quotable for
carload lots, SL25(Sl,27i f. . b. in
San Francisco. The New York mar
ket is very dull, and the English mar
ket seems to be xn a condition more
favorable to Columbia products than
for a long tune past; advices from
there state that the Fraser river fish
of good quality have been exhausted
in that market, and that the detesta
ble quality of that which remains ne
cessitates a return of Columbia river
fish for marketable slock of uiKjnes
tenable quality. The arrivals of
salmon in Great Jiritain for the month
ending June 30, 1883, aggregate 45,
015 cases; for same month of "S2. 38,
800 cases: for same period 'SI, 48,703;
for s;x months ending June 30, 1SS3,
the arrivals of salmon in Grout Ilrit
ian were 424,013 cages: same period
of '82, 252,98.".; and tho some period
of '81 , 201,1 15. This argues either a
rapidly increased and increasing con
sumption of cannod salmon through
out the United Kingdom, or a present
orcrsupply. As our reports do not
confirm the latter hypothesis, the
former, by far more satisfactory
one, is also the more warrantable.
On the Sacramento, fish are run
ning sufficiently to induce some of
the canneries to keop open, and oth
ers keep their doors open from force
of habit or example. The rumor that
there would bo no fall pack on the
Sacramento river seems to be without
foundation, as we are informed that
no combination has been effected to
that end, and packers on the river
are convinced that packing will be con
ducted as usual at all canneries. Great
preparations are being made to catch
salmon next month for salting
purposes on the Sacramento river,
notwithstanding the penal code
makes it a misdemeanor to havo a
salmon in one's possession during the
month of August. Tanks capable of
holding 10,000 fish are being built
along the Sacramento river, and
fleets of boats and barges are being
made read' to engage in the business.
Fish Commissioner Redd ins reported
at a late meeting of the commission
ers that ho had consulted with Mr.
Bradford and W. T. Coloman & Co.,
and that they had expressed a willing
ness to contribute toward a fund for
the support of a detective force along
the Sacramento to prevent the pro
posed violation of ihe laws. A letter
from Collinsville staled that to pre
vent illegal fishing a detective force
was an absolute necessity, as an ordi
nary patrol would do no good, fisher
men having openly avowed their
intention of fishing uninterruptedly in
season or out, and in pursuance of this
intention had laid in a large stock of
salt. Five detectives were ordered to
be employed along the Sacramento
and its tributaries. It is proposed to
start a cannery at Santa Barbara for
the canning of all varieties of fish
taken on that portion of the coast.
There is no special news from the
Fraser river. It is estimated that the
pack on that river will bo 75,000
cases short of last season's, this being
what i3 known there as an off year.

At an editorial convention the con- J
versation turned on typographical'
errors. Of course every man present
who had wielded a Faber for the pur
pose of lifting struggling humanity
into the upper strata, where the bright
sun of knowledge should illume tho
path, etc, had somo reminiscences
about certain typographical errors.
Joe Peters, of the Blowtown Bugle,
finally got the floor. "Gentlemen,"
said he, seo this scar across my left
cheek as big as a horseshoe; see this
crevasKe in my nose whence a portion
has been extracted; see the nynuiniug
hulf inch if my right ear; examine
this hand and wonder what became of '
the thumb and fourth finger; look .it '
this stiff leg. All this i the result of I
getting an "o" where'an 'V ought to J
be. I had occasion to report a case
in Squire Field's office and the evi-.
dence of one of the witnesses did not
tally very well with the others. This
was a big, burly man, a livery stable
keeper, '.tIio might be able to get away
witu oumvan. i incidentally re-i
marked that tho witness wa3 a vera
cious man. Well, gentlemen, wheni
the Bugle came out, the intelligent
compositor and equally intelligent
proof-reader had got it vora
cious. Tho livery stable man
saw it before I did, and walked
straight into tho ollice, and without
speaking a word he seized me by the I
hand and broke those fingers to they
had to be amputated; then he jabbed !
me against the wall with force enough
to knock out my front teeth, stopping
to inquire whether I still thought he
was voracious. Before I could an
swer, he bit off a piece oft" my car, and
asked if I took him for the fool who
undertook to eat eighteen goose eggs
in eighteen hours. Then ho slammed
me against tho imposing stono and
broke my leg, and mildly inquired if
he looked like a man who would
make a bet to assimilate a braco of
quail every day for six weeks. Be
fore 1 could recover from that assault
he landed an iron inkstand against my
jaw-bone, with the query whether
anybody had told me that ho was the
party who could digest a peck of raw
oyster at a sitting. As a parting sa
lute he bit a piece out of my nose and
left. After tho doctor had gathered
together what there w.n left of me
and set my broken bones, I asked for
a copy of the Bugle and discovered
what it wa3 that had made him mid."
'Did you sue him for damages?"
asked the crowd.
Not at all," said Peters. "1 had
got more damages than 1 wanted already."-

The consumption of salmou is
fairly satisfactory, bnt holders of
stocks are -showing a little more
anxiety to realize. Dealers are al
ready interested in the prospect of a
gocd supply of this season's catch,
and, although the past year has re
sulted in continued los3, there is a
charm in the trade which always en
courages dealers to prospective profits.
Tho latest quotations are 24-S Cd to
25s for Columbia river. Correspon
dent Lon-lon Grocer.
Tho market for preserved salmou
is flat, weak and depressed, there bo-
ing no demand worthy the name, no
stability in price3, and scarcely any
sales. Holders arc evidently over
loaded with unsold imports, which
ought to have been cleared oft mouths
ago, and, iu their anxiety to realize
their stocks of last season s fish before
the new conies in, thev are ready to
accept much lower prices. The deal
ers and the retailers, on the other
hand, refuse to be tempted into buy
ing, except on pretty much their own
terms, which would be nearly equiva
lent to purchasing Columbia river fish
at about the same rates as are asked
for Fraser river kinds; and whilst the
former gqpds, in the event of sales
taking place, would bo quoted 243, if
not less, the latter would be offering

Billings vs. Villard.
A special to the Minneapolis Tribune
datod New York, July 18th, states
that rumors have reached there with
in a day or two from the northwest to
the effect that what is known as the
Billing3 party have .succeeded iu re
gaining possession ot a majority ol ttie
stock of the Northern Pacific railroad
company, and intend to use their
power at the next annual meeting in
September to retire Mr. Uenvy Vil
lard from the presidency and substi
tute Mr. Billings or some one io be
designated by him. The statement
conies from the line of the road that
Vice-President Oakes, who ha&hither-
to been considered the immediatu
lieutenant aud confidential represen
tative of President Villard, has been
making wholesale removals of em
ployes, including hirge numbers who
were supposed to enjoy the friend
ship of Mr. Villard. The action on
the part of Mr. Oakes has been inter
preted to mean that the days f Mr.
Villard'a control aro numbered, and
that the vice-president is acting in
view of the coming revolution. In
quiry here in New York among the
few official gentlemen who remain
during the dog days fall to confirm in
any degree whatever the rumor al
luded to. One prominent friend of
Mr. Villard in Wall street declares
that nothing eliort of an earthquake
could interfere with that gentleman's
hold upon the Northern Pacific, and
that there is no more prospect of his
going out of the management either
this year or the next than there is of
the road failing to be completed in
1883. The same party adds that Mr.
Billings is entirely content with the
present conduct of affairs and is not
scheming for a change.
