Fish Suppl .
lx the opening lecture before
the Fisheries Conferences, in Lon
don, Professor Huxley presented
facts substantiating his statement
that in fishing districts an acre of
sea was more proluse in food pro
duction than an acre of land. He
said that lie had no doubt that
there were some fisheries which
were inexhaustible. Instancing
the salmon rivers, he said it was
quite clear that those who would
protect the fish must address
themselves to man, who was reach
able by force of law, and that it
not only might be possible, but it
was actually practicable to so reg
ulate the action of man with re
gard to a salmon river that no
such process of extirpation should
take place. But if we turned to
the great sea fisheries, such as cod
and herring fisheries, the case was
entirely altered. He believed
that the cod, herring, pilchard,
mackerel, and similar fisheries
were inexhaustible, and were en
tirely beyond the control of man.
either to diminish the number of
fish or to increase them by culti
vation. But there were sea fish
eries capable of being cultivated
and controlled, in pait at least by
It has been reported to the
treasury department that the Brit
ish parliament is considering
measures looking to the prohibi
tion of the introduction of cattle
from foreign countries where the
foot and mouth disease prevails,
and that an attempt will probably
be made to have it apply lo im
portations from the United States.
It is stated at the treasury de
partmeut that such application
will be unwarranted, sis a thorough
investigation of the subject, just
concluded, has shown that the
foot and mouth disease does not
prevail among the cattle of this
country. Steps will be taken to
bring this fact to the attention of
the British government, to the end
that its orders on the subject may
not be made applicable to the im
portation of cattle from this coun
try. Thki:k are produced annually
100,000 barrels of hemlock bark
extract, of which a single firm
produces 72,000 barrels. They
own nine extract-works and oper
ate twenty-three tanneries. All
the tanneries of the United Stales
consume annually 1,250,000 cords
of hemlock, produced in nine
states. As the yield of bark is
about seven cords to an acre of
hemlock timber, the 'carly con
sumption implies the clearing of
17S,000 acres. In the main the
bark is stripped from trees cut for
timber; and as the demand for
this timber exceeds the supply,
the supply of both timber and
bark is doomed with speedy ex
haustion. Our Clatsop count'
supply will in the near luturc be
of enormous value.
A London dispatch says: Tho
shooting- of Care' has produced a
feeling of consternation in parlia
ment, and the informers death is
regarded as a severe blow to the
policy of repression. The gov
ernment terrorism receives a check
through the inability of the au
thorities to protect their agents.
No one pretends to feel sorrow for
Carey's fate, but the English press
is angry at the failure of the gov
ernment to secure the informer's
safety, and it is considered that
Carey's fate is likely to intimidate
possible traitors all over Ireland.
The news of Carey's denth has
been received with peculiar re
joicing, which adds to the uneasy
feeling of legislators -at Westmin
ster. The law's uncertainty has been
again rebuked, this time at Day
ton, W. T. McPherson, one of
the murderers of Cummins, at
New York bar, who had been
tried and found guilty, but had
been granted a new trial, was
taken from the Dayton jail last
Saturday night and hanged hy a
party of sixty-five vigilantes. "Was
it right? Of course it was not.
Such proceedings never are right,
but the next time a rufiian starts
with murder in his heart, the re
membrance of McPherson's fate
may save his victim's life. As a
means of repression, as a prevent
ative measure, lynch law is most
The Missouri editors went to

Porfiro Diaz says. No matter the
