The Pacific Journal thinks that Shoal
water bay and Gray'sharbor are becom

it is not improbable to suppose that ves

Mrs. Ann Condill, a native of England,
but who has been a resident of this state
for the past fifteen years, was admitted
to citizenship in the U. S. district court
yesterday. This is probablv the first in
stance, says the Oregonian, in which a
woman has applied for naturalization
papers. Mrs. Condill is a widow and a
number of years ago took up a homestead
near Springyille. She now desires to
prove up on it, and in order to do so it
was necoessary that she should become a
oitizen. It is not generally understood
mat a woman oi ioreign oirm ueeus w
become naturalized, but it appears that
under some circumstances such is the
case. If her husband gets naturalized, or
she marries an American, Bhe becomes a
citizen without taking out papers.

"Sab KrnclifO and I'ortlsad Freights.1'
l'httru has always existed an unreason
able diilertuco in freights from San
Francisco and Portland to Liverpool. At
present this difference amounts to 10s
sterling, or $2.50 in our money, per ton,
paid from Portland than from San Fran
cisco. At one time last fril this excess
from Portland whs onl 5s psr ton, but
with thai exc-puon, the difference of 10s
per ton bis boon steadily maintained.
The Farmer lias shown this up for years
back and protested that it was unfair.
The ship off on the broad Pacific cannot
be more than two or three days' sail
further from Portland than from San
Francisco, und the voyage round from
Liverpool and return cannot bo over one
week longer from Portland than from
San Francisco. It is no doubt true that
ships make voyages to and from one port
as readilv as the other. Every vessel un
dergoes detention of weeks, and often of
months, waiting lor cargoes or ior sea
men. The short detention caused by the
difference in distance cannot he of seri
ous moment. We learn that ships only
ask at Paget sound tho current rates
from ban irancico; ss distance does not
figuro in the account as the sound is more
distant than Portland. It is no doubt
true that they make a bug-bear of the
Columbia river, but it is time that hum
bug was exploded- Willamette Farmer.
Yes, indeed; it is "time that humbug
was exploded," and one of the ways to
produce the explosion is for the Farmer
to stop writing such humbugging state
ments as the above. The Farmer knows
very well that the Columbia bar is tho
cause of the difference in freights be
tween here and San Francisco; that deep
draught vessels, carrying larg& cargoes
that oau enter San Francisco bay cannot
enter the Columbia; that the dangers and
detentions between Astoria and Portland
cause heavier rates of insurance to be
required; that the vessels that have
loaded at Astoria have saved so much by
not going further up the rivor as to dem
onstrate the reason of the onerous
freights; and that to attempt, as the
Farmer do?s, to write upon this subject
not in ignorance, which is excusable, but
in deliberate perversion of facts which is
contemptible, is alike opposed to justice
and that spirit of honesty which is sup
posed to aotuate all editorial utterances.

More About "Reclamations."
A correspondent of tho Portland Coi
mercial Herald, writing -regarding the
outrageous charges of "reclamation"
brokers in Liverpool, says: "I am glad
to see tho salmon canners in Astoria aro
beginning to open their eyes regarding
reclamations. There has been, and still
continues to be, a regular system of rob
bery (you can call it nothing else) going
on in Liverpool, not only in salmon but
in other products shipped from the Pacific
coast, and that by houses that stand high
in the business community both hero and
on the other side of tho water. It has
surprised me very much that ink rested
persons have not long ere this taken nteps
to change the plan of making reclama
tions. The very thing that brought dis
aster to the Astoria fishery in 1877 was
the paying of heavy reclamations, which,
as now turns out, ought never to have
been paid by the canner. as th damage
has been snown to be sea d.-iune, as
shown by the ship's log. Tho Titan was
rail under for several days; cargo w.-is
adrift, water in the hold, both wheat,
flour and salmon were damaged by salt
water, but it being the usual thing to
make reclamations for bad salmon, some
30,000 claims wem made, which wero
paid by tho canner, he not knowing tho
circumstances of tho voyage at the timo.
I know of a case of a cargo of
wheat consigned to a certain house,
which they carried until it
was nearly duo in Liverpool. The mar
ket showed signs of a quick advance,
then advanced rapidly. They cabled the
owners of the wheat, it was sold before
tho rise. The owners would not staud it,
as they had given no orders to sell. The
matter was finally compromised Anothor
case was of a lot of flour consigned, flour
that has no superior on thi3 coast. When
it arrived in Liverpool it was pronounced
by the firm to whom it was consigned to
be of inferior quality, in fact inferior to
ordinary Oregon flour, and could not be
sold for over 23s. per 280 xwunds. For
tunately, a gentlenmn interested in the
flour was in Great Britian, and ho at
once telegraphed them not to sell. Ho
then sent to an expert to examino into
the matter and test tho flour. After a
thorough test and examination, tho firm
said a mistake had been made, that the
flour was of superior qu-lity, worth J7h
per 280 pounds. They, however, ren
tiered account sales at 55s, the then pric
of ordinary Oregon flour. That eiuiwl
the business. When u firm of hi"! stand
ing does such things, what can consign
ors of salmon, wheat, flour, hops, or nnj
other product of this coast expect? The
only solution to this is for the salmon
canners to appoint a man of their own
to represent them und see that these
practices are stopped. Tho same may be
said of millers, etc"
