From the tower of tho new public

bo had one of the finest views in
this section of country. Few places
can offer a greater variety of scene,
aud among the possibilities of futurs
seasons will be a good glass to be
placed there. There ia, however,
something else that should be in the
new schoolhouse tower, and that is a
large clock, with four dial faces and a
bell to strike the hours. A town
clock is something that Astoria needs,
if for nothing else than as a matter
of convenience, and now that there is
a largo building, prominently located
and with a proper receptacle for it a
large clock with illuminated dials by
night would be in order. Let us

Reports are still adverse to any
lively or heavy operations on the
Sacramento river, and it is generally
said that the falling off in the pack
will amount to fully 50 per cent.
Thirty cents is still the ruling price for
raw fish to fishermen. Two canneries
at Martinez remain closed, as does
Bradford's cannery at Chipp's island.
The Central Pacific Railroad is now
taking the canned salmon from tho
cannery wharves on the Sacramento
river for castem shipment at $1.25.
Formerly cauners were forced to send
their products to San Francisco
or Sacramento at extra expense, tho
above rate being charged by the rail
road company from those points. This
results in a saving to canneries from $10
to 811 per carload. A report was
mado at the recent meeting of tho
Fish Commissioners at Sacramento,
setting forth the results of that body
to enforce the law prohibiting fishing
during the month of August. The
arrest of twenty-seven offenders was
reported, of whom twenty-hve were
convicted, while two were still under
bonds. Six moro arrests wero report
ed, of whom three were convicted.
Tho patrol instituted proved very
efficient, and the convictions fol

prove a salutary influence.-Ca". Grocer
