camp, Jack's slough, near Cath2aiii-t, met
with a horrible accident which cost him
his life. He was hook tender, and one of

poor fellow in the left breast, crushing it
in and killing him instantly. He was a
native of " ancouver, a singlo man, aged
29, and had relatives living at French

discovered tho diffeienco between reports
of the salmon pack of 1833 and of 1831,

skillfully piloted his vessel through a

For instance: All this season good butter

where she took on a cargo for her owner,
Mr. Olsen. "We next hear of her at

to the south. Breezes foul and tempests
murky delayed tho sailing of tho gallant

hoisted a heavy spread of canvas nnd
swung out to the west. Nowoidorsigu
of parting was heard from her from that
day till last Tuesday when Capt. Bab

tho .1. 11. Field, sighted her off Capo
Lookout, lie answered her signals of
distress, put alongside and found that
the crow was out of water, but in other
respects they were doing qulto well. Ar

tho missing vessel who had ridden in

The Control or the O. K. A .
The annual meeting of the Oregon
Railway and Navigation Company and
the Oregon and Transcontinental Com
pany will tako place in this city next
Monday, tho 15th. Tho result is awaited
with interest by tho Northern Pacific and
the, O. R. and N. people, by the public
generally and particularly by tho heads
of departments of the O. R. and N., who
want to know who is the authority nboe
Since the disintegration of the Villard
system, it has never been known who
owned a controlling interest in the O. R.
A' N. stock. This will be developed at
net Monday's meeting. Tho Tiauscon
tinental did hold $14,000,000 more than
half of the entire stock. Who owns the
$14,000,000 now is a matter of conjecture.
One report has it that Northern Pa
cific stockholders, or men friendly to the
Northern Pacific control it. Another is
that a majority is held by tho O. R. i.
N. Company itself, that is io say: by O.
R. & N. stockholders who are not special
ly interested in the Northern Pacific and
who prefer la maintain a neutral posi
tion as regards the Northern and the
Union Pacific. Still another report, out
little credited, however, is that the Cen
tral Pacific people have secured the stock.
This much is known "Dresei" Morgan
fc Co.. of Now York, hold the proxies for
a,000,000 of the $14,000,000 formerly
held by the Oregon and Transcontf-
uent&I, and it will be voted in a lump by
some representative of tho owners now
en route hero from Now York. The situ
ation in brief as stated to nn Orejonian
reporter by a prominent railroad official
yesterday," is as follews: 'lf it turns out
that the" stock is held by men friendly to
tho Northern Pacific, its position is as
sured. In that case there will bo no
necessity for haste in constructing tho
Cascade branch. But if it should turn
out that tho Oregon Railway and Navi
gation, as a company, own n majority of
tho stock, the Northern Pacific's position
is not strong. The Oregon Short Line has
just about the same traffic contract with
thoO. R. A'N., as tho Northern Paiific
has. There will be a junction of the O.
R. A X. with the Short Lino at Snake
river before tne end of the year. This
route to the astwill bo somewhat shorter
than the Northern Pacific's. In traffic
over tho Northern route theO. R. te N.
has the haul of lil miles, a little over
one-ninth of the distance to St. Paul.
Via the Short Line it has a haul of over
400 miles, more than one-fifth of tho dis
tance to Omahu. Hence it seems that it
would be to the O. R. A; N. Co.'s interest
to secretly favor the Short Line while
nominally maintaining a neutral posi
tion. OregotUfiii, 10.

It is suspected by the Central Pacific
Railroad company that Jay Gould is in
control of tho Northern Pacific and Ore
gon road3, and that he may eventually
build down tho coast from hock jromi, io
gain an independent road of his own to
San Francisco. In Oregon it is suspected
that tho Central Pacific has been en
deavoring to Eecure tho Oregon branch,
and that work will bo resumed "again as
soon as tho Central Pacific gains control
of tho same.
The Central Pacific Railroad company
have issued orders to tho superintendent
of tho Carbonado mines, which thoyown,
to make preparations so aB to bo ablo to
increase the output to 1000 tons per day.
Tho companv now receive from 14.000 to
19,000 tons of coal per month from these
mines, but it seems that even this amount
is insufficient to supplv the demand. It
is safe to say that inside of two years Ta
coma will ship at leat'8000 tons of coal
per day the year around. x
Tho snnrenie court has anlrmed the

Tho courts hold that the council has tho
right. The liquor, dealers wjll hold n

and became a total wreck. She was tak

Nav's mill mid had some 60,000 feet of it
in iier hold at tho time. It, is probable
that somo of the lumber was snveid. At
low tide thenextday after the vessol went
ashore it was possible to walk dry shod
around her. Tho Moie was a familiar
favorito in these waters, and especially at
tho Coquille, across whose bar she had
wallowed hor way so often that it had be

A boy can help anything if he has nny

Our workingmen would get to their labor
at 10 o'clock in the morning and quit in

might open in the morning or wait until

be run to suit the convenience of team
sters and engineers instead of owners.
Our trains and boats would leave to suit
captains and conductors, and some days
you would get one meal and other days

A hardware man lately took tho agency
for a new kind of ioo-box for preserving
cold victuals. It was a pretty good thing
ho thought, and it was only necessary to
enlighten tho public regarding its real
merits and indisputable advantages over
everything else of tho kind to caus a
tremendous rush of cusloniors eager to
purchase; so ho counseled with himself
and soliloquized thusly:
"That refrigerator must be brought
before tho public, and I am just thu mau
to do it. Don't talk to me about your
newspaper advertisements. I'll Bhow
you how to advertise without cost. Yon
don't ketch mo paying a newspaper for
advertising; not I. I'm too old for that
and I'll show folks a new idea.1 Then
he laughed a satisfied laugh, arid at once
set about making a practical test of his
new method of diffusing information.
Ho mixed up a pot of black paint. Tiro-
cured several large sheets of card boerd,
uiiu uuer uiuvu eperiiueuiiug. anu re
peated attempts, finally succeeded in pro
ducing two signs that read as follows;
'Fifty dollars to the man who can
prove that any two things put into this
ice chest will taste one of the other."
He had a refrigerator run out to 'tho
curb stone, hung n sign over each side,
and retired indoors to await.the expected
run of customers. People passed up and
down the street, jostled each" other in
their hurry, glanced at the ice-box and
its signs, and went on. After some
hours of disappointed hopes and expecta
tions, the dealer saw a pedestrian halt,
calmly pursue the wonderful -announce
ment, and rather hesitatingly advance to
'"Do you mean it ?" he inquired, in an
anxious tone, pointing over his shoulder
to tho signs.
'Yes-sir-ee," emphatically responded
"Put your money np," insinuated the
''No sir," replied tho deuler, in pomp
ous style, "my word is ns good n the
"All right, I'll take you," responded
the stranger, as ho departed. Some time
after he returned with a box under each
"Stick to your agreement r" he queried.
'Of course I will," answered the deal
er, wondering what in tho name of Chris
topher Columbus tho man had in view.
Tho stranger set his boxes down on tho
sidewalk, and n crowd began to collect.
He told tho dealer that ho was afraid he
(the dealer) would back out of the bar
gain, but tho latter asserted his readiness
to put up tho stamps if necessary. The
stranger opened a box, lifted a cat out
and placed her in the refrigerator; then
he opened tho other box and took there
from n wire cago containing a largo rat.
"Now, mister," said ho, 'you-just shut
that door in a hurry when I flop the rat
inside, and I'll go you another fifty that
ono will taste of the other in less'n five
Tho crowd yelled, and the denier slam
med tho rofrlgorator door and slid into
the store, with a remark about fools nnd
swindlers. Ho still refuses to recognize
tho stranger's claim to the So0 but has
taken his signs in.
FOilEIGK SALSOX XABKET.
There has boon nn improved demand
throughout the week, at firm rates for
salmon Grocer's Gazette.
Our salmon market remains firm, but
without much moving. The country
demand shows a great lmprovemantdur--ing
the last few days, and in consequence
of this there have been a good many in
quiries, and a very hopeful tono prevails
amongst holders, as there are already
sign3 of a coming reaction. Correspond
ence London Grocer's Gazette.
Of salmon another cargo (the last of
the old season's shipments), consisting
of 47,450 coses Columbia River, per Ice
King, from Astoria, has just arrived in
London, the bulk of which is unsold, and
the prices spoken of as likely to bo real
ized aro somewhere about 22s to 23s 6d
per case for large or wholesale linos. In
other respectB there is nothing new to
report in these markets, and the trado
passing in tinned meats has been very
steady at unaltered rates for either Aus
tralian or American. To-day we hear
that the price of good brands of Colum
bia River salmon, of tho now season's
pack, bus just been cabled from San
Francisco as $1. 2ic per dozen, f. o. b.,
which is cheap, being equal to about 20s
6d per case landed here. London Gro
cer. The market for salmon is fairly active,
caused partly by speculative buyers, and
partly by consumptive requirements.
The season has now commenced, and a
steady demand for some months to come
is expected. There can be little doubt
that the averago pack is too large for
consumption, and tho losses which have
resulted to dealers by the gradually re
ducing prices will have a wholesome
tendency this season in preventing early
sales in Ban Francisco. The lower prices
do not appear to increase consumption,
and therefore there iB likely to be an ex
cessive quantity in store year by year,
unless the pack is considerably reduced.
A report from another source -is to the
effect that, although the demand in the
country Ls healthy, without being brisk,
dealers still hold aloof from buying. Im
porters, however, aro fully aware of the
position of tho market, and do not evince
the slightest desire to force sales. They
aro apparently quito content to wait un
til buyers are inclined to open negotia
tions. Prices aro purely nominal, for no
transactions of any weight havo taken
place lately wherewith to test the market.
All accounts reaching us from Columbia
river point towards restricted operations,
the un remunerative prices obtained the
lost few seasons having at last made
cannera cautious. Liverpool Correspond
