Tho Hawaiian bark Augusta, which re

the master 'and owners refused payment,
and at last accounts the vessel had been
seized and was in the hands of tho United

sold to pay the debt.
SIXKISG $250,000 IX A XETVSPAPER.
The Cincinnati Enquirer gives the fol
lowing items regarding a journalistic en
terprise in that city: The News Journal
was started some fifteen months ago by
a lot of gentlemen for the purpose of
making a newspaper that would suit
every individual connected with it. There
were about fifteen gentiemen who were
the moving spirits and every one of the
fifteen got as many friends as he could
to take stock in the conoern. This capi
tal stock, was we believe, $200,000, of
which about $5,000 was paid m and
spent. The people who have not paid
their assessments or the stocks, and per
haps never will wicnout the courts make
them, have not, however, been able to es
cape the liability that attaches to a
stockholder in the state of Ohio, whioh
isiability for twice tho amount of his
subscription. The amount of cash sub
scribed was about $80,000. But that does
not represent the amount of cash sunk in
the conoern. The average loss of money
spent on the conoern could not have fal
len short of $4,000 a week. Sinco it has
passed into the hands of the Sun proprie
tors, through the court sale, the paper
has cost an average of $1,800 a week. To
the outsider this seems almost prepos
terous out of reason the Sun having
been only a four-page paper, and small
at that. But the average white man
does not understand the cost of running
s newspaper of to-day. To sum the mat
ter up, the jsews journal nas sunn in the
neighborhood of $250,000 to $300,000.

1 NORTHERN' WATER1?.
The steamer licda, Capt. Gage, sailing
from the Arctic July 19th, arrived at San
Francisco on the Utth, bringing news
from the whaling lleet, which she has
furnished with coal aud stores. The sea
son thus far hns not been a good one,
the Arctic being full of ice and obscured
by fog. None of the vessels got further
north than Cape Elizabeth, and Point
Barrow was unattainable. The catch
thus far has been 75 whales, while, owing
to the ice, 150 have been lost. Hundreds
of whales were seen daily, but they were
so near the ice, often among it, that they
were hard to approach, and two were
lost to one that was caught. The bulk
of the catch is caught later in the season,
when the ice begins to move from the
north, driving the whales before it. As
there are a largo number of whales amid
the ice, the fleet has a good prospect of
making a fine catch before coming home.
The day for leaving has been fixed for
October 10th, but a few vessels may re
Following is an extract from a letter
from one of tho crew of tho Thrasher:
"We are in tho midst of immense masses
of floating ice, which make it next to im
possible to do any whaling, In fact, for
the last month only two whales have been
caught by the fleet, while in the same
time over a hundred have been lost by
the ice and other causes. The wind has
prevailed oontinually from the north,
driving the ice down before it, and un
less some change occurs the catch of the
fleet will not bo increased much, and
from present indications I do not think
a single vessel will reach as far as Point
Barrow the present season. To give
some idea of our difficulties, I will state
the steam whaler Thrasher has on board
seven whales and has lost seven. The
Balaiiia also lost seven, the Orca lost the
same number, while tho Bowhead, with
six on board, has not lost a whale. Tho
Belvidere has one whale a dead whale,
without head or tail. During the past
month we have seen hundreds of whales
daily, but, owing to the ice and norther
ly winds, none of us have been able to
make a killing. The whaling bark George
and Susan has not been seen in the Arc
tic this season, nor has anything been
seen of the missing schooner Alaska of

On Thursday night Mr. Anderson took
the largest salmon, we believe, that has
ever been caught in Frazer river. It
measured 4 feet 5 inches in length, 2 feet
7 inches around the body, and weighed
78 pounds.- Tho fish is locally known as
the Chinook salmon, and is technically
known as "Salmo Quinnatt" or '"Oncor
rynchus Chouica" (Halbaum). It weighs
more by 1 pounds than any other salm
on taken in these waters of which we
have any record. It was purchased by
Capt. Piddenrigh, who intends to have it
skinned, stuffed and sent to Ottawa for
exhibition. British Columbian.

CLEVELAND'S LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE.
A Grateful Appreciation of the Supreme
Aleant, N. Y., Aug. 19. Gov. Cleve
land's letter formally accepting tho Dem
ocratic nomination for president of the
United States, is as follews:
Gentlemen: I have received your-com-munication
dated July 28, 1884, inform
ing mo of my nomination for president
of the United States by the Democratic
national convention lately assembled at
Chicago. I accept tho nomination with
a grateful appreciation of the supremo
honor conferred, and a solemn sense of
tho responsibility which in its acceptance
I assume. I have carefully considered
the platform adopted by the convention,
and" cordially approve the same. So
plain a statement of Democratic faith
and the principles upon which that party
appeals for the suffrages of the jeople,
needs no supplement or explanation.
It should be remembered that the office
of president is essentially executive in
its nature. The laws enacted by tho
legislative branch of the government the
chief executive is bound faithfully to en
force. When the wisdom of the political
party which selects ono of its members
as a nominee for that office has outlined
its policy, and declared its principles, it
seems to me that nothing in the charac
ter of tho office or the necessities in the
case requires more from the candidate
accepting such nomination than the sug
gestion of certain well known truths, so
absolutely vital to the safety and welfare
of the nation, that they cannot bo too
often recalled or too seriously enforced.
We proudly call ours a government by
the people. It is not such when a class
is tolerated which arrogates to itself the
management of public affairs, seeking to
control the people, instead of represent
TBUE OOV-RXMEKT BX THE rOP.
Parties are the necessary outgrowth of
institutions, but a government cannot
bs by the people when ono party fastens
its control upon tho country, nnd per
petuates its power by cajoling aud be
traying the people instead of serving
them. A 'government is not by the peo
ple when p. result which should represont
is, or can be, determined by the shaine-
lessnessir) of their suffrages, when an
election to office should be the selection
by the voters of one of their number to
assume, for a time, a public trust, in
stead of his dedication to tho profession
of politics; when the holders of the bal
lots, quickened by a sense of duty, shall
avenge truth betrayed and pledges broken,
when the suffrages shall bo altogether
free and uncorrupted, the full realization
of a government by the people will be at
tained; and of tho moans to this end, not
one would in my judgment, be more ef
fectual than an amendment to tho con
stitution disqualifying the president from
re-election. When we consider tho patron
age of the great office, the allurements of
power, tho temptation to retain public
place, once gained, and more than all.the
availability a party finds in an incumb'ent
whom a horde of officeholders, with a
zeal born of benefits received aud fos
tered by the hope of favors yet to come,
stands 'ready to aid with money and
trained political service, we recognize in
tho eligibility of the president for re
election a most serious danger to that
calm, deliberate and intelligent political
action which must characterize govern
ment by the people.
THE A-08R0 MEN.
True American sentiment recognizes
the dignity of labor, and the fact that
honor lies in hone3t toil. Contented
labor is an element of national prosperity,
ability to work constitutes the capital,
and the wages of labor tho income of a
vast number of our population, nnd this
interest should bo jealously protected.
Our working men are not asking unrea
sonable terms, but as intelligent citizens
they seek the same consideration which
those demand who have other interests
at stake. They should receive their full
share of the care and 'attention of those
who mako and execute tho laws, to the
end that the wants and needs of the em
ployers and employes should alike be
subserved, and the prosperity of the
country, tho common heritage of both, be
While we should not discourage tho
immigration of those who como to ac
knowledge allegiance to our government,
and add to our population, yet as a means
of protection to our workingmen a dif
ferent rule should prevail concerning
those who, if they come, or are brought
to our land, do not intend to become cit
izens, but injuriously compete with those
justly entitled to our labor. In a letter
accepting the nomination to the office
of governor, nearls two years ago. I
made the following statement, to which
I have strictly adhered: "The laboring
classes constitute the main part of the
population; they should be protected in
their efforts peaceably to assert their
rights, when endangered by capital, and
all statutes on this subject should recog
nize tho care of tho state for honest toil,
and befriend it with a view of improving
tho condition of the workingmen, a
proper care for the workingmen being in
seperably connected with the integrity
of our institutions. None of our citizens
are more interested than they in guard
ing against any corrupting influences
which seek to pervert tho beneficent pur
poses of our government, and none
should bo more watchful of the fearful
machinations of those who allure them
to self-inflicted injury. In a free country
the curtailment of the absolute rights of
the individual should only be such as is
essential to the peace and good order of
tho community. The limit betwwen the
proper subjects of governmental control,
and those which can bo more fittingly
left to the moral sense and self-imposed
restraint of tho citizens, should bo care
fully kept in view. Thus law3 unneces
sarily interfering with .the habits and
customs of any one of our people, which
are not offensive to tho moral sentiments
of the civilized world, and which are con
sistent with good citizenship and tho
public welfare, are unwise and vexations."
The commerce of a nation to a great
extent, determines its supremacy. Cheap
and easy transportation should therefore
bo liberally fostered, within the limits of
the constitution, and the general govern
ment should so improve and protect its
natural water ways as will enable the
producers of the country to reach a prof
The people pay the wages of tho public
employes, and they are entitled to the
fair and honest work which the money
thus paid should command. It is the
duty of those entrusted with the manage
ment of the affairs to see that suoh pub
lic service is forthcoming, Tho selection
and retention of subordinates in govern
ment employment should depend upon
their ascertained fitness, and the value
of their work, and they should be neither
expected nor allowed to do questionable
party service. The interests of the peo
ple will bo better protected, the estimate
of public labor and duty will be im
mensely improved, public employment
will be open to all who demonstrate their
fitness to enter it, the unseemly scramble
for office under the government with the
consequent importunity which embitters
official life, will cease, and the public de
partments will not be filled with those
who conceive it to be their first duty to
aid the party to whioh they owe tneir
place, instead of rendering n patient and
honest return to the people. I believe
that the public temper is such that the
voters of the land are prepared to sup
port the party which gives the best prom
ise of administering tho government in
the honest, simple and plain manner
which is consistent with its character
and. purposes. They have learned that
mystery and concealment of their affairs
cover tricks and betrayal. The states
manship they rcquiro consists in honesty
and frugality, a prompt response ttftho
needs of tho people, as they rise, and the
vigilant rotation of all their varied in
terests. If I should be called to the chief
magistracy of tho nation by the suffrages
of my fellow citizens, I will assume the
duties of that high office with a solemn
determination to dedicate every effort to
tho country's good, and with an humble
reliance upon the favor id support of
the Supremo Being, who, I believe, will
always bless honest human endeavor in
the conscientious dischar of public
duty. Gboveb C -evexiAXd.
THE SALMON MARKET.
The out look for salmon packers at the
present time is certainly "blue" owing
mainly to the general shrinkage in tho
value of all linos of manufactured goods,
more especially canned goods of all kinds
caused by the genoral financial depress
ion throughout the world and the rebound
after a series of prosperous years and
hieh prices. Wearo now facing prices
below cost of production and this with a
dull and slow demand.
The price of canned salmon at the
commencement of the season was from
$1 20 to $1 25 per dozen, and has steadily
declined, until now $1 00 and $1 05 per
dozen is tho best price offered by buyers
and no great demand even at this low
figure. Packers are, of course, reluctant
to take these prices, which means work
ing for tho season at a loss or simply
keeping even on the cost. There is going
to b9 a reaction from this depression just
as certain as we have the present de
pression after n series of average and
good years. While the Columbia river
canners have packed about C00.000 cases
a much larger quantity than was anti
cipatedyet the total pack of tha coast
will fall very much short of past years.
There will foot up on the vessels sailed
so far this season, and with those at
present on berth with full engagements,
about 300,000 cases. In addition to this
there will be from 75,000 to 100,000 cases
or in all almost a total of 400.000 case.s
for England from this river alono. It
therefore looks as 11 our friends m tho
east will have to pay up for salmon next
spring, since we can hardly look for
much or an auvance prior to that uate,the
two great seasons of demand being spring
anuiau wnen tue interior merchants buy
their goods. And for the fall trade deal
ers are now buying their supplies and
nnu seners -weaic Kneeu" enough to tako
present prices; but for the spring tho sit
uation will bo different, and therefore
we aro glad to see our packors have nu
opportunity of shipping their goods by
sail to the east at low rates so as to avail
themselves of tho fullest benefit to be
obtained when demand nries in tho east,
as it certainly will.
