Patent Outsidks. II is said that tho
postmaster-genoral has decided that
newspapers known as "patent outsides,'
"insides" or "co-operatives,"" etc., shall
be excluded from the mails n second
class publications. The reason is that
these papers, being similarly printed on
one side in large cities, then sold by the
quire or ream, to thousands of cauntry
publishers, who make up and print the
other half of tho paper with home news
and local advertising, is sufficient evi
dence that such papers arc not self-sustaining.
There are about 4,000 such pub
lications in this country, and if the rul
ing above referred to should go into ef
fect, probably 3,000 "co-operatives" of
the smallest circulation and load adver
tising patronage would necessarily sus
lend publication. It is not generally
known, but is a fact all the same, that
notices published in these papers are
Tho Roys Washed Out to Sen.
A man from Tillamook informs the
.Votes that tho schooner Aljiha, on her
recent disastrous trip had two boys
aboard, who, when in the breakers, were
washed overboard. "When they went over
they had hold of a ropo and clung to it
for dear life, but were unable for a time
lo got aboard again, owing to their bo
iiig heavily clothed and their largo gnm
boots. Willie Star finally succeeded in
getting somo of his things off and helped
Johnny Gablesou on board. He then soon
stood beside his almost naked comrade
on dock. They again set sail, and for
eleven days wore alone on the deep,
with scant rations and bruised bodies.
Their food finally gave out, and for three
days they were compelled to fast. Tho
plucky little fellows did not give up, and
wero at last rewarded by again reaching
the bar, and crossing this timo m safety.
When they were taken ashore it was dis
covered that they had sustained some ter
Addition to Ocean Park.
On the splendid stretch of ocean beach
that extends from McKenzies Head to
Oysterville are somo fine locations, each
forming the nucleus for futuro seaside
resorts. Among tho most prominent is
tho addition to Ocean Park, which is
now attracting considerable attention.
Lots in this tract have found ready sale
and alreads some 1,100 have been dispos

piece which is said by those who have
trequentlj' visited tho locality to bo tho
choicest portion of the location. Refer

that an opportunity is now offered to those
wishing a lot for residence or investment
to purchase. The sale begins at tho auc

A prominent Astorinn said yesterday
that he was assured by a leading Union
Pacific official thai were the Astoria land
grant out of the way the U. P. folks
would soon head this way. It is thought
that clever Mr. Hogg of the Oregon
Pacific is at tho bottom of tho recent ac
tivity in railroad matters at Yaquina
Ray; and that he has induced the Oregon
Short Line to take a look that wjy.
Disinterested mariners who ply tho
stormy mam say mat inquina can
not be made as good a harbor as Tilla
mook, and that is saying a great ileal.
In connection with other rumors it is
said that there will le a prominent of
ficial here next Tuesday who is in the in
terest of the Utah and Wvoming railroad,
and offers for $5)9,001) to be raised
by Astorians to have a railroad
built to somo point in the Wil
lamette Valley. An effort to
get definite information :is to who
this prominent official is. whore he gets
his authority, who is backing him, where
the road is to be built to. and other in
teresting details, leads to nothing but as
surances that it is all so. Some pious
soul has defined a sacrament to be an
outward sign of inward faith, or a sacred
and mysterious sign or ceremony by which
Divine grace is conveyed lo the soul.
There would appear to be something sac
ramental about the knowledge vouch
safed to many favored beings concerning
possible railroad results.

The matter of building a road to Clat

that tho best scheme is that suggested in

been subscribed; some of those who have
alr&ndy put their names down have sig
nified their willingness to double tho
amount. The capital stock of the cor

Catching CodfMi in the Ohkotsk.
The Pacific fishing grounds are in the
Ohkotsk sea, in latitude 53 degrees north,
longitude 155 deg. east, inEehring sea
in latitude 55 deg.-30 niin. north, longi
tude 1G5 degrees west, and off the Chou

The former is an arm of the Pacific

of Kamtchatka and the Asiatic continent.

The vessels set seil in April or May, and,
arrived upon the grounds, cast anchor
train ten to twenty miles irom snoro and
commence opperutions for the season,
which closes in September. At 4. a. si.
the men take to their boats and row to
such point within a radius of ten or ,
twelve miles from the ship as each may
see fit to select, where they anchor and
proceed to fish, using two handlines pro
vided with two No. 10 hooks and four
pounds of lead to each line. The bait
used at the opening of the season is a
piece of salt herring, and afterwards hal-
iouc and saimou, wuen inose nsu mane
their appearance. Salmon is the favorite ,
bait, and largo numbers of these fish are
caught and cured for that purpose.
When they first make their appearance
in July they have to bo fished for with
what is technically known as a "jig,' a
bunch of small hooks on the end of a
line, which, baited with something white
and attractive, is towed astern of a
boat, tho boatman holding the other
end of the line between his teeth.
Later on, when the salmon
ascend tho fresh-water rivers to
spawn, they are caught in seines. The
salmon swarm upon the Kamtchatkan
coast to such an extent that the Little
river, the Goligan, the Great Balsha and
other fresh water streams are clogged
with them. Tho vessels then anchor
close in shore and take from five to six
boat-loads of fish, which are dressed and
salted away for bait. So plentiful aro
the salmon that not only the fishermen,
but the bears also secure a supply. The
latter, having no nets, use their paws to
sweep the fish out of the water and rap
idly iaiien upon sucu iare. Aiier naving
laid in a good stock of salmon tho real
work of the expedition begins, and con:
tinueswith varied success, from 2C0 to
.W0 a day being a good day's catch for
one man, but the number will sometimes
rise to 700 nnd again fall to next to
nothing. The cod, while a voracious
fish, is still rather dainty, it would ap
pear, and does not care to change diet.
Therefore, when feeding on salmon thov
will not bite at any other bait; or if feed
ing on herring thoy will not tako the
salmon. Sometimes, again, they will re
fuse to bite at all, no matter what is
offered them, and the fishermen havo tho
pleasure of seeing swarms of fish in tho
water below them, not one of which can
bo persuaded to take tho hook.
When the dav's work is completed the
boatmen row back to their ship nnd the
fish aro taken in hand by the "dress
gang." These men are hired at from 30
to $tX) a month and take no sharo in the
profits of the catch except what fish they
take for themselves by fishing from the
vessel while the fishermen are away, or in
case a boat is left idle through the sick
ness of one of the fishermen, when tho
captain will allow one of the "dress
cane to borrow it and fish for himself.
"When the fish come aboard they arc first
taken in hand by one "throater," who
cuts the throats and opens tho bellies.
Tho "header"' then takes off the head and
removes tho entrails and passes them
to the "splitter," who splits them open
and cuts out the backbone. They are
then thrown into tubs and washed, and
after tho water is drained off tbe3' are
nassed into tho hold, where the 'Salter '
packs them in tiers or "kenches," laying
them alternately head and tail and be
stowing a double bandtui ot coarse salt
upon each fish. Thero they remain until
the arrival of tho vessel in port.
