variously recorded at from 5,125 to G,07o
feet. According to the standard of the

metres. The mean length of latitude,
sometimes reckoned as a knot, is 5,076

after a cold snap in the latter part of
February and when the west warm wind
blows clouds of moisture from the ocean
they come from no one knows where and
swim steadily al ong disdaining all efforts
to be caught till they get above Ska
mokawa. From there on they fall an
easy prey. They were first caught this
season at Eagle Cliff. Yesterday a few
were caught at Oak Point, and a day or
so more they will show up about Bush's
place. The manner of catching them is
very simple; just dip them out of the
water by the seine full. They are esteemed
& luxury, and the first catch always bring
.good prices in Portland and 'Astoria
markets. The first lot brought to Port

Machine Killed Cant.
On several occasions it has become ap
parent from the ku of English trade
journals that the svstem of machine
filling salmon cans is not meeting with
favor on the other side. The Grocers'
Gazette, of Loudon, says:
Orders for salmon from the country
during the we k have been very fair,
there is no change of importance in val
ues excepting lor maenme-packed, which
may be bought at Gd per case less, and
some brands even Is less than quoted last
week; this looks unhealthy, and we think
it is due iu a great measure to the unsat
isfactory turnout of machiitc-p.icked
liah, consequently dealers who havo net
their faces against the above have been
more inclined to stock up with good
brands packed in the old style, which has
somewhat enhanced the value of the lat
ter. A very objectionable feature of
these machine-pa cRed fish is that they
are turned inside out, and consequently
the skin is in the middle of the meat.
The Grocer say?: Salmon has moved off
less freely during the week, and portions
of recent consignments remain un
cleared, especially "machint. filled"' tins,
which are offering at 22s to 23? per case,
while -'hand filled" tins of British Co
lumbia fish realize 26s to 27s.
This is a question to which there are
two sides. Some of the most favored
brands ol Columbia river salmon were
machine filled in '83. they were examined
by experts here, in Portland and in San
Francisco and pronounced Al. The fill
ing is done cheaper, and the real trouble
is in the fact that there -'is nothing in
it" for the agents across the sea. The
clamor that the trade journals are mak
ing is a little like the attempt to "boom"

Tardiness In School.
Editou AsreiiiAX:
We had hoped it would not be neces
sary to say anything to the patrons of
our .school about tardiness. But we can
refrain no longer. We earnestly ask
your co-operation in suppressing unneces
sary absence and tardinas. If school
work is worth anything to our children
it s worthy their best efforts.
If the parents of children are indif
ferent about habits of promptness,
the true teacher is not. Nor can this
habit be overestimated iu a business
point of view.
Promptness, faithful, painstaking
effort in business life insures success.
Few, if any, possess these traits of
character iu childhood and youth. They
must be cultivated. We must begin with
the first months and vars of f-choo! life,
and persistently keep this thought before
tht child if wo would have him grow into
habits which will bo so much capital
when he is ready for the duties of man
hood. When we think of the goals of useful
ness which are waiting our girls and
ooys, if they develop mentally and mor
ally as they should during their -school
days, we wonder at the indifference of
some parents over the habits they form
during their school years.
If an education is not worth making
some sacrifice for its accomplishment,
by both parent and pupil, we can hope for
no liberal scholarship, no earnest work
from those who are taught in our public
schools. Yours, etc.,

The steamer Wellington, which arrived
this morning, reports that on Saturday
morning, before daylight, during a dense
fog thirty miles off the Columbia river,
she was run into by the ship S. li. Meade,
and damaged on the starboard quarter,
of the mizzenmast, above the main deck.
The Wellington lay by the ship until day
light, and found that her only damage
was her bowsprit gone. Both vessels
thon proceeded on their way. The cap
tain of the Wellington says his lights
were burning brightly and the whistle
blowing every three minutes, and the
ship is to blame. Victoria dispatch, 25.
The tug Columbia started out yester
day morning and found the Meade about
twenty-five miles to the north'ard. A
pilot was put on board and tho vessel will
probably be in to-day.

'Important, if True."
In a report from one of the canning
stations upon the Columbia river we see
it stated that the offal of the salmon can
ned, consisting as it largely does of tho
egg and milt of the fish, and thrown into
a convenient reservoir, had, in this rough
way, become self impregnated, and that
hundreds of millions of salmon fry had
thus been produced.
This, if true, presents a new phase of
this ever enlarging proposition of fish
culture. If the myrads of fish that are
every year supplied to the canneries can
also by this Casaran operation ba mado
to supply their own successors in bound
less profusion, we have only to make our
fish commission an adjunct to a cannery
to not merely supply but to overstock our
rivers, and the waters of tho globe.
The statement that this has been done
makes it worth further inquiry. And if
this thing is possible, and we see no rea
son to doubt it, with a very little atten
tion and at a trilling expenditure the
question of keeping up our supply of
salmon is solved without maintaining a
closi season or interfering in any way
with the constant employment of our
fishermen. San Jose, Cal., Mercury, 21.
That salmon hatch out in the vicinity
of the canneries every season in countless
myriads is an undoubted fact. That they
attain any size is extremely doubtful.
the water of the lower Columbia, its
temperature, the soil formation, the bed
of the river, its depth, the current, the
quality of the water and other matters
are all against the probability of the lit
tle salmon living.
