One of the first remarks that a seaside
visitor from tho interior makes is, ''What

"Well, it is a pity,but there is no probabil

it would bo worth 100,000 to Astoria
during July and August.
Three men were employed the last
week in removing the dead and rotting
salmon from the city front, and from the
stench that arose last evening it is evi
dent that three times three could be well
employed this week in continuing the

the beach should bo cleared.

It is now a generally accepted idea that
deep sea fishing off the Clatsop coast
would be a profitable investment. One
company was formed last spring with
most untoward result. It is the opin
ion of some who have had experience of
this kind in other waters, that much de
nends upon the kind of vessel employed.
It is claimed that the business requires a
vessel in which a crew could go to sea,
follow up the fish, study the drift and
habits of the fish, and at all times keep

The Usual Extraordinary Run in July.
History is said to be precept teaching
by example. If this is so, the probable
outcome of the business as far as salmon
fishing on the Columbia river is concern
ed will probably be this no more fishing
in April, and not much in May. Last
year fish were seventy five and ninety
contu all through the season, and at this
price cannerrt packed half a million cases.
Then came the glut in Julv, boats com
ing in loaded down with salmon that
went begging at two bits apiece, and can
ners who had filled their cans with high
priced fish stood and saw fish equally as
good thrown away because there was not
capacity enough in the canneries to get
away with them as fast as they came.
The beach from Alderbrook to'Union
town was lined with the festering car
casses of the finest Chinook salmon from
which the bellies had been cut, and any
man could have all he wanted for the
This year brings tho same state of af
fairs. The chief difference is that tho
cannon' supplies are not quite as plenty
as they were in 18-51.
In April very little fishing was done.
The Catting and one or two other com
panies packed through April; the great
inajorit' of the canneries did nothing
till May. The May run was a little be
low the average: the Jnne run about
equal to that of bust, but about tho 3th
inst.. came a rash from the sea that taxed
the ut moat capacity of the fishermen to
catch and the cannons to prepare. Dur
ing the last week tho fish have come in
incredible quantities, and the price has
dropped to four bits and even less. Somo
of the canneries will shut down to-morrow,
more on "Wednesday, several more
on Thursday and the closo of this week
will see few" of the thirty-eight putting
up any salmon. As to "the future tho

THE A3IK LAW.
Suction 1. Even, person who shall,
within tho stale of Oregon, between the
first day of November in each year hunt,
pursue, take, kill, or destroy any male
deer or buck, shall be guilty of a misde
meanor, livery erson who shall, between
the first day of January and the first day
of August, from and after the passage of
this act, pursue, hunt, take, kill or de
troj any female deer or doe, shall be
gnilt' of a misdemeanor. Everj' person
who, after tho passage of this act, shall
kill any spotted fawn, shall bo guilty of
a misdemeanor. Every person who, after
the passage of this act, shall take, kill,
or destroy any male or female deer at
any time, unless tho carcass of such ani
mal is used or preserved by the person
slaying it, or is sold for food, is guilty of
It will be seen that the female deer or
doe, are still protected, and that it is un
lawful at any time to kill any spotted
fawn: and also any male or female deer
at any lime, unless the carcass of such
animal is used or preserved bv tho person
slaving it, or is sold for food.
Every person convicted of violating
this law is punishable by a fine of not
less than ten dollars and not more than
three hundred dollars, or imprisonment
for not less than five days nor more than
three months, or both imprisonment and
fine. One-half of all the money collected
for fines for violations of this law will be
paid to informers.
We notice 13' onr various exchanges
that several sneak thieves and confidence
sharpers are following up Cole's circus,
and, despite the efforts of the manage
ment, have on several occasions made
quite large "clean nps.' One of their
games is to buy a number of tickets from
the ticket wagon and go about the ground
selling them. If a erson hands them a
bill or a piece of gold they say "Hold on
a minute nntil I get it changed," and dis
appear in the crowd, leaving the victim
out his money and ticket too. The
chargo is made that in addition to run
ning three card moute, the three nut
shell, the 21 top and bottom dice game,
etc., they would change large bills, hand
it back and then call eut: 'Hold on,
there, let mo count that ovoragain!" Get
ting it back, it is changed bj' slight of
hand for another roll that is short, but
the victim having, as he supposed,
counted it once, walks off satisfied it is
all right and only discovers the contrary
when it is too "late to have the circus
sharper acknowledge it. The safest plan
is to provide ones self with just tho
change nccessarp to buy a ticket and to
purchase it at the ticket wagon. JJugton

NEW WOODEN STEAMER FOE OREGON.
When the three masted schooner-rigged
steamer Al-ki arrived at Pierrepont's
stores, in Brooklyn, from New Bedford,
Mass., last week, says the New York Xau
iical Gazette of July 3, she was boarded
in the smoke and dust by a Xantical Ga
zelle representative, who desired to write
her up. The Al-I;i (the motto of Wash
ingtou territory, and the Indian expres
sion for "We'll show you by-and-by") is
a wooden steamer of 1,100 tons gross,
built and cngincd by the Goss Marine
Iron Works of Bath. Me., for Captain
William Lewis and W. H. Basse of Now
Bedford, to ply between San Francisco
and Coos bay. She is 200 feet long, 40
feet beam and 15 feet in depth. Her en
gines are of 300-horse power, of the com
pound type, 22x3 and 44x3(1, which will
give her a speed of 12 knots. The pro
peller is of composition metal, 12 feet in
diameter, and her three short masts are
of wood, and all without gaff topsails,
but tho foremost carries a squarcsail bent
to a yard that slides up and down on an
iron jnckstay. "When steaming head to
wind tho yard is hoisted half-way up tho
mast, then "cod-billed'' so that it rests
with one end on deck, and right up and
down the mast, thus preventing the wind
from retarding her progress.
Her frames are made of hard wood and
hackmatack, and as sho now stands,
$115,000 is her monetary value. She is
fitted with three houses, the crew and
firemen occupying ono to themselves, tho
officers and engineers tho other, and tho
galley and mess room tho last. Tho
wheel-houso is forward, with the captain's
quarters close adjoining. Strange to say,
she has no wheel or stearing-gear aft, so
that in case of a break-down she would
be in a bad fix. Her equipment of steam
winches and engines for pumping, hoist
ing sail or cargo, is complete, and in ad
dition sho is provided with an independ
ent double-cylinder engine to work tho
capstan and windlass, so thnt her an
chors may be run up in a few minutes
by steam. As her passenger space
will accommodate fifty people, sho
is fitted with a large fresh-water
condenser, capable of converting sev
cral hundred gallons of salt water
into fresh every day. Another inter
esting feature is that sho is heated fore
and aft by steam. The saloon is beau
tifully finished with panel-work of pol
ished ash, trimmed with cedar, mahogany
nnd California laurel, and at the forward
part of this exceedingly handsome apart
ment is placed an elaborately-decorated
French mirror, which reflects the beau
ties of the fitting and furnishing, espec
ially the brilliant glimmer of the abun
dant silverware. She will be manned by
two officers, two engineers, four firemen,
half a dozen seamen, nnd a cook and
steward. Capt. Doane of Nevtonville,
Mass., ex-master of tho bark Jonathan
Bourne, will command her, and Henry
V. Freeman of Now York will bo chief
engineer. The skipper says: "We'll
show you by-and-by that Bath has turn
ed out a first-class ocean-going steamer
in wood, and may make a still better Al
ki out of metal.
Judtre 1'arsonN and tbe Juror.
"I once heard," said J. F. Clarke, "this
anecdote of Judgo Parsons, the great
Massachusetts advocate and lawyer. It
is said that being about to try a mercan
tile case, he ordered a jury to bo sum
moned, and among the names was that
of Col. Thos. H. Perkins, tho leading
merchant of Boston in that day, and a
personal friend of Judge Parsons. When
tho officer made his return he laid down
a T0 bill before tho judge.
"'What is that?' said Parsons.
" 'Col. Perkins says he is very busy in
deed, to-day, and prefers to pay his line.'
"'Take that back to Col. Perkins,' said
the judge, 'and tell him to come here at
once; nnd if he refuses, bring him by
When Col. Perkins appeared the judge
looked sternly at him, and said: "What
do yon mean, sir, by sending money
when you were summoned to sit on this
Col. Perkins replied: "I meant no dis
respect to the court, your honor; but I
was extremely busy fitting out a ship for
the East Indies, and I thought if I paid
my fine I might be excused."
"Fitting out a ship for tho East Indies,
sir!" shouted tho judge; "and how hap
pens it that you are able to fit out a ship
for tho East Indies?"
"Your honor, I do not understand
"I repeat, then, my questien: 'How is
it that you are able to fit out a ship for
tho East Indies?' If you do not Twill
tell you. It is because the laws of your
country uro properly administered. If
they were not, you would have no ships.

BUTLER'S COURSE NOT FIXED.
General Butler was interviewed tho
other da3. In response to an inquiry he
said: "I havo never told any ono that
I should run as an independent candi
date for president. My future course is
not to be hastily settled; thereforo I can
not now say what will or will not hap
pen, so far as the coming election may
depend upon me. Yonr idea that my
candidacy will draw support from loth
Democratic and Republican parties, and
that thereforo the totals will proportion-!
ately not affect tho result much, my vote
being tho least, makes me but a fiv on a '
wheel. Thero aro hundreds of congres
sional districts in which the election is
settled by less than a vote of 500, one
way or the other. Suppose men are or
ganized for work in these districts, who
will think it worth while to solicit their
support? It is the men who want to be
governors and congressmen. Some men
wish to be president that they may fend
their names down in history. - The motive
does not affect me. My namo will figure
in the history of this country. The
schoolboys of the futuro will know of
Butler when the names of some of the
presidents will be lo3t even to history.
But there are many earnest and true
men who feel that I represent them
and that I should do so in a
more active way. I receive from ninny
editors their papers published weekly
in the smaller towns, not the
great dailies in the land. They circulate
among country people and in some in
stances they are tho only papers taken.
I feel that these men in their limited
field must express the sentiments of their
readers, the people who sustain the pa
pers. They urge mo to remain a candi
date for president, to stand for tho prin
ciples which they know I sympathize
with. Ls it best for them and for me?
It is not a question of a minor office. I
have already accepted the nomination of
tho Greenback party. Tho best things
in tho Democratic platform I subscribe
to. Somo of them are substantially mv
own. I have met Gov. Cleveland but
once and havo no quarrel with him. Our
careers have not been in tho samo field,
but ho is not a representative of those
principles in regard to tho government of
corporate powers, transportation, cur
rency and tho labor question in which I
believe. Let mo make it plain to you
why ho is not acceptable to the great body
Gen. Butler then recapitulated Clove
land's position on tho elevated railroad
fare bill, the car-drivers' bill and the or
phan asylum bill.
"Now" continued General Butler after
this diversion, "New York is the battle
ground of this election. Tho work will
bo concentrated there. If I were to
spread myself thin all over tho country I
could effect nothing. I would bo a fly on
tho wheel. A speech in Michigan, an
other in Ohio, one in Arkansas, Iowa,
Nebraska, Kansas and California would
bo of no avail; but suppose I take in Now
York, in military parlance, niass my
forces, not weaken them in a long lino?
During the last campaign in Massachu
setts I made thirty-threo speeches in
twenty-one days. HaTing tho fenent co
operation of tho Anti-Monopolists and
Greenback Labor parties, something
might bo done. In that case you might
change the figures. You would not call
me a lly on tho wheel, but a bull in a
china shop, orperhaps a jackass dancing
among tho chickens."
Continuing, General Butler said: "I
was treated fairly by tho convention.
The delegates listened respectfully and
117 of them voted for ray platform. I
know how to estimate the cries of those
put into the audience for the purpose
of insulting and howling down all
opposition to Cleveland. It is tho
few men who manage the machine who
nre responsible for this sort of thing.
Think of it! Threo thousand tickets
distributed by tho National Commi ttee
to New York's Cleveland contingent and
ono hundred and thirty to Massachu
setts. Five tickets to each delegate and
one platform ticket which had to bo
changed every day more troublo than it
was worth. However I do not complain."
"I shall do nothing in a pet,'' conclud
ed Gen. Butler; "I shall not speak in a
pet. If such had been my mind I had
reason enough to show it at the conven
tion. No; I will tako plenty of timo to
shape my course."
