TheBoston Commercial Bulletin of tho
11th inst., says that very fine Oregon
salmon can belaid down in Boston at a
cost of 20 cents per pound, and sold at 25
to S3 cents, at tho first of tho season,
when nativo salmon are worth from 75
cents to 1 por pound. Tho Oregon fish
has the; effect of placing salmon in
abundance in our markets earlier than
formerly, and nt a price which will cause
much larger and early consumption.

impediment to a full volume of water
flowing through mains from Bear creek
to this city. That stream, which is there
twenty-two feet deep and 200 feet wide,
being navigable, had the pip9 laid at the
bottom, and the pressure on one of the

obviated by placing a stronger joint at
An Upper Astoria girl was looking dis
oonsolatelv out the window at tho rain
the other day, and in a moment of dreamy
abstraction she puckered up her counte
nance and attempted to w'jii;t!e. It un
fortunately happnJ 'ml tho young
man who is couriiug her was passing the
house at the time, and ho glanced up at
the window with a most engaging smile.
Bat the smile froze on his lips at the
s "ght he beheld, and that n'ght he went
to call on a brand new girl. Those who
have seen a woman try to whistle will un
derstand why tho young man thought his
girl was making faces at him.
The many friend3of Mrs. Jennie Wood

She died at Fort Canby, W. T., on Sun

year of hor age, of pleurisy of the heart,
after an illness of two "day.. Tho fn
neral will take place at two o'clock this
afternoon. Mrs. Woodruff was widely
known throughout the state and terri
tory and the news of hor death will be
read with regret by hundreds who knew
her in her lifetime. The Gen. Miles will
leave Gray's dook at nine and remain at
the fort till after the funeral obsequies,
giving all who wish to attend from this
city opportunity to do so.
Before Judge Fox, yesterday, came O.
F. Carlson, who lodged information to
tho effect that he was going home at an
early hour last Sunday morning, and
while between John Devlin's and O'Bri
en's hotel, three men standing in the
road called to him. Thinking they were
friends of his, he went over, and was im
mediately knocked down and robbed of
whatever small change he had about his
clothes. When ho recovered his senses
it occurred to him that a oertain Jack
Curlev, and an uncertain "Aleck" and
"Joe,rwere his assailants, and warrants
were accordingly issued yesterday for the
apprehension of these gentlemen, whose
ideas on the acquisition of property
seem a little vague.
If you must do a credit business, don't
forget to charge, says tho American
SloreJxcpcr. When one customer has
been attended to, charge up his purchase
before you attempt to wait upon another.
Don't neglect it or put it off because
some impatient customor asks you atten
tion. Don't trust your memory one
minute, because nervous customer num
ber two may happen in before number
one is out, and you will forget about
charging anything. It's dangerous
enough to trust, without directly court
ing loss bv relying upon a treacherous
memory. For should 3'ou forget only one
item out of the many which Mr. Jones
bought, it would take tho profit from the
entire sale, and a month later, when he
calls to pay his bill, his failure to remind
you of the omission of that one item will
be no proof of dishonesty. Charge first,
then serve the next customer; but charge
even though the next custompr leaves in
a pot for having to wait so long. Better
not leave tho certainty of one sale to
jump at tho uncertainty of the next.
The best way is to charge while the arti
cles aro yet spread out on tho counter,
before they have been gathered into a
basket or made up into a bundle. Look
at the methods used in our large jobbing
houses, where, with the sj'stem of check
ing and double-checking almost ap
proach rod-tapeism. it is next to an im
Sossibility for an ittun to be omitted,
bould yon not be careful and take as
much pains to provent mistakes as they?
Is not the five pound package of sugar,
overlooked in the items you charge to a
customer, as large a percentage of the
whole bill as an extra bolt of "Wam
sutta" would be in the caso you receive
from the city.

WJLSHISGTOS POLITICAL GOSSIP.
Washujoton, May 11. The great tariff
reform battle waged by Carlislo and Mor
rison since tho opening of congress, came
to an end in tho house Tuesday after
noon. The tariff reformers lacked four
votes of a sufficient number to provent
the bill being killed. Three Republicans
voted with them, and forty-one Demo
crats, four of whom are from California,
voted against them. From the first the
bill has been considered purely a politi
cal measuro, and its death, therefore, is
fraught with momentous political results.
The feeling since Tuesday among the
Democrats is very bittor, and although it
will probably abate some beforo the
meeting of the national Democratic con
vention, there is no possibility of Demo
cratic harmony this year. The defeat of
the bill has killed off all talk of the old
ticket in congress. Tilden is known to
bo the friend of Randall, and the tariff
reform era believe the latter voted Tilden's
sentiments. The idea of voting for Til
den and Hendricks meets with derision,
and even if the "sage of Graracrcy" w.i
a possibilitv it is probable that tho en
raged followers of Carlislo would ''knife"
him at Chicago.
Twodrva igj -dr. .baton, one of the
DeiciwiTftU who voted against the Morri
nje bill, went to Morrison and asked for
his assistance in passing the presidential
count bill, of which he has charge. "No,
I will not help you." said Morrison in an
insulting tonej I have no use for you, or
your friends, nor for any legislation with
which you or your friends in this house
are oonnected." In this remark Morri
son probably voiced the feeling of his
faction. If carried out this state of
feeling will result in nothing further be
ing done by congress except appropria
tions and an early adjournment. Tho
tariff reformers are nil shouting, "On to
Chicago." Once there, they say, und
Randall will have no Republican minority
toswell his vote. A radical reduction plat
form will be adopted, and -two radical
tariff reformwa nominated.
A prominent Democratic senator,
speaking of the programme here out
lined Home davs since, said: "Let me
"give you a few thoughts and predictions.
Tho tariff retormers wm greatly ouraum
ber the so-called Randall men at Chicago,
and if thev choose they can adopt a plat
form indorsing Morrison's bill and
Speaker CarlLsle'.s course. They will
probably do so. That will read Tilden,
Randall and Eaton out of the party.
Now, mark the result: All tho Indepen
dent or semi-Democratic votes of the
north, on whom we rely to carry the
doubtful 3tat63, will go over to the Re
publicans, and we shall lose New York,
Connecticut, New Jersey, Ohio and Indi
ana in the presidential contest. This
conservative element will not only elect
a Republican president, but they will
elect a Republican house. Tho repre
sentatives of that house will, in the first
session of the 49th congress, abolish in
ternal revenue taxes and smooth out
some of the inquities of the present
tariff, which will bring the receipts of the
government down to tho required basis.
Then away goes our best issue; the treas
ury surplus question is settled for ten
years, and Mr. Morrison will have the
proud, satisfaction of knowing that his
conduct in this congress has resulted
once more in wiping out tho Democratic
party." The senator who said this is a
K&lmon Xot Forelyn uid Domestic.
Tho run on tho Sacramento Bhow3some
surprising variations in its strength for
different days of the week. Last Monday
three canneries took 3,000 fish; Tuesday
their catch -fell off to 900 fish, and on
Wednesday the catoh was only nominal.
Some salmon experts will give a voluble
explanation of this one particular freak,
but old packers and veteran dealers will
point to it as cumulative evidence of their
well established dictnm that "saimon is
a queer fish." What has been said of the
Columbia rivor pack may be truthfully
repeated of the pack" of tho Sacramento
river canneries. Tho best fish aro being
used, and greater care is being taken in
packing than was ever before noticeable.
California Grocer and Conner.
Thore is no change to report in the
market for salmon during the week, tho
holidays naturally interfering with busi
ness operations, but there is reason to be
lieve that the stocks in tho hands of re
tailers aro very small, and there are nl
ways signs that thoy are replenishing ex
hausted stores. At the Bame time, there
seems to be a general hanging off on the
part of large buyers, in the hope that the
importers will be obliged to come into the
market and sell their parcels at a sacri
fice. When the dealers really begin to
make their purchases, there is little doubt
but that some improvement will bs made
on tho now very unsatisfactory prices.
There is likely to be a considerable fall
ing off in the new pack, in consequence
of the disappointing result of last year's
business, and therefore the time is very
near when enhanced figures will have to
be paid. The present quotations are
22s(233 for Columbia river, and 20s21a
for outside rivers. Correspondence Lon
A carload of Columbia river salmon,
20,000 pounds, was shipped from The Dal
les Thursday evening by tho Northern
Pacific Refrigerator Car Company to E.
G. Blackford, of Fulton market. New
York city. The car in which the fish were
sent was built especially for the fish busi
ness, under tho supervision of C. W.
Sleeper, of the Northern Pacific Railroad
Company. It will make the trip in nine
days. The temperature inside the car
when leaving The Dalles was 50 deg. If
mib ib xnuiuuuuea mere wm oe no trouble
about the fish arriving m good order.
Large quantities of salmon packed in ice
in boxes have been shipped from this
place, but the lot noticed above is the
first full carload sent across tho conti
nent. Tho largest catch of a salmon with
hook and lino in Oregon waters yet known
to the piscatorial fraternity, is reported
to have taken place at Willamette Falls
yesterday by Mr. H. I. Bingham of this
