The Astoria Land Grant Forfeiture.
THE SENATE PASSES THE OREGON
CENTRAL FORFEITURE BILL.
Oregon Senators Work and Vote For the
Passa-e of the Bill "Without
In the U. S. senate, on Tuesday, thoGth
inst., consideration of tho inter-state
commerce bill was about to bo resumed,
but on motion of Senator Slater, of Ore
gon, the senato by a Tote of 23 yeas to 22
nays, decided to lay that bill asido till
Wednesday in order to continuo consider
ation of the Oregon Central bill.
Senotor John T. Morgan, of Alabama,
moTed to amend by adding to the bill the
substance of his provision which, on his
motion had been added to the Atlantic
and Pacifio forfeiture bill, providing a
method of judicial procedure for the as
certainments of the rights of any parties
claimed under the grant, etc Ho spoke
at considerable length in advocacy of
his proposed amendment. Bonds which
were a lien on the road, he said, woro
outstanding in the hands of innocent
parties, and whatever rights inhered in
the holders of those bonds were rights
that a court could best investigate and
decide upon. "In God's name," said ho,
"what sort of a government have we got,
if the judicial department cannot be
trusted to pass upon a title? Where did
congress get its reputation for immaculate
purity to such an extent as that it rose
above tho reputation of judges. When
did wo find the precinct of our court
haunted by gangs of foul lobbyists, to
attempt to prevent the decisions of these
courts? It is not tho courts that such
people Tisit. They-Tisit congress. They
are not round about me supreme court,
but are often found in the lobbies of
this body. I will not say that where
a carcass is, thero the eagles gather to
gether; that would be unjust, but I will
say this that for a serene, honest judg
ment of perfect integrity and one upon
which the country can rest with satis
faction, I commend to a court rather
than to any legislative body."
Sonator Slater replied to Morgan and
maintained that Morgan's amondmont
was unnecessary. The bondholders'
rights -were shown by tho grant. They
had such rights as tho granting act gave
them, and could have no more. Slater
denied that this was a oaso of confisca
tion. It was a case of reversion or for
feiture, because of a condition broken.
Sonator Dolph said tho portion of land
granted the Oregon company had been
earned by tho construction of a corre
sponding portion of road within tho timo
specified in the net granting the bonds.
The portion to which the pending bill re
lated had not been oarned. The condi
tion subsequent on which the grant had
been made was not fulfilled, and not bo
ing fulfilled, tho grant became void. It
was not within tho power of oongress,
Dolph said, to cut off in a bill of this
character the acquired rights of any citi
zen. The rights of all could be asserted
in court in spite of any act of congress.
After further argument, Morgan's
amendment "was rejected, yeas 15, nays 28,
and tho bill was then read the third time
and passed without division.
Before announcement of tho vote on
his amendment, Morgan changed his vote
from yea to nay, and on tho passage of
tho bill gave immediate notice of a mo
tion to reconsider.
The vote in detail on Morgan's amend
ment was as follews:
Yeas Allison, Blair. Cameron (Penn
sylvania), Cameron (Wisconsin), Cancer,
Dawes, Huwley, Iiapham, McMillan, Mil
ler (New York), Mitchell, Pike, .Sawyer,

The bill just passed the senate, forfeit
ing lands of tho Oregon Central railroad
company, applies to such portions only
of lands as lio adjacent to and cotermin
ous with the uncompleted portion of the
line. After declaring such lands for
feited, it provides that persons already
settled thereon shall have proferenco in
right of entry thereto under the home
stead laws, such entry to be considered
of tho date of actual settlement. The
firioo of even sections of tho forfeited
ands is reduced to $1.25 an aore. The
bill also repeals the act of March 3, 1875.
which permitted actual settlers on lands
subsequently forfoited to locate elso
where without oxtra cost, on amount of
land equal to theirfirst holding. The bill
now returns to the house, having orig
inated there. In the present shape it
differs materially from the form in
which it oame to the senate, the house
bill having declared forfeited all lands
granted the company.

What the San Francisco Chronicle" Kxi
to Sar Abcnt It.
Talking about tho packing of salmon,
tho San Francisco Chronicle of the 1st
Tho canning business of tho coast is
mainly conducted in California and Ore
gon. In our own stale fruit canning is
the most extensive branch of it. In Ore
gon salmon packing takes the lead. Cal
ifornia monopolizes the fruit canning,
but salmon .'canning, of which a. large
share was formerly done here, has of late
years dwindled, owing to tho steady de
crease in the run of fish in our water?,
and if tho decrease continues for two or
three seasons more the business here will
be at an end. For several years the state
fish commission kept up a contest with
the fishermen, maintaining a fish-breeding
establishment for replenishing the
supply of fish, the fishermen and packers
seomiugly straining every nerve to ac
complish the extinction of the salmon.
Millions of young salmon were bred and
placed in the Sacramento every year, and
for a time it seemed that the commission
would win the contest aeainst all tho de
structive agencies at work, but the fishing
gear was rapidly increased, boats and
fishermen multiplied on tho river and
even ran out to the Golden Gate to meet
tho fish, tho laws for tho protection of fish
wero inadequate and imperfectly en
forced, tho commission was not properly
supported by tho stato and general gov
ernment, it finally was compelled to give
up the contest and abandon its breeding
establishment, and the end of the salmon
canning industry in California is appar
ently close at hand.
Thero is no worse-managed industry
here than that of salmon packing none
that is carried on with such reokless im-
Erovidence. Any one looking at tho old
luo book laws of Connecticut of some
fifty years ago will find therein a provis
ion that no apprentice shall be given
salmon more than twice a week. To-day
tho streams are barren of salmon, with
tho oxception of sorao of the extremo
northern waters of Maine. It has beon
estimated that the production of canned
salmon of tho Pacific coast, to say noth
ing at all of the value of tho raw article,
has been over 1,000,000 cases n year, and
tho estimated valuation is $.".,000,000.
This is a big industry, but it is slowly
drifting into nothingness. The only peo
ple who havo paid any nttontion at nil to
its preservation aro tho British Colum
bians on tho FroHor river and other Brit
ish Dominion waters. On tho Columbia
river in tho last four years tho pack has
been between G00,000 and 000,000 cases
each year, with but littlo fluctuation.
But tho fishing gear boats, nets, etc
has been increased about 20 per cent.
Tho fishing has grown steadily closer and
tho catch per boat has steadily diminished.
This shows that tho run of salmon is
steadily decreasing, and it is only a ques
tion of a very few 3'ears when, in Bpilo
of all tho fishing gear tho river will float,
the pack will fall off.
rnOTECTION OF THE EfTEIinST.
Tho case is similar with the salmon
business. God has given tho water. It
is our farm. No rent is paid. Fishing
has been going on for years. Thero has
never been tho slightest attempt made,
oxcept one spasmodic effort on the port
of tho government, to perpetuato it by
breeding and protecting fish. At a cost
of about 10,000 to 13,000 per annum,
in caso tho management wero given into
tho hands of a practical canuer,
fish-breeding establishments could
bo maintained on tho Sacramento mid
Columbia rivers and other streams of
the coast. Taking into consideration the
fact that the fishing in theso streams
gives employment to perhaps 2.100 peoplo
and that they pay no rent for tho rivers,
a tax should bo levied by tho state
upon tho total out-turn of the
canneries. Say that 12."),000 cases
of salmon are annually packed on
tho Sacramento; if each cannery was
taxed five cents a case, or n littlo over
1 cent a dozen, which would bo but nn.
insignificant item of expense, it would
give a revenue of $Gr2."0, and with this n.
breeding cstauusunient count no main
tained on tho Sacramento. This iuii:ht
be considered a tax upon tho fishermen
and cannors for me free uso of tho river
and would furnish means of propagating
fish and maintaining tho supply indefi
nitely. As tho thing is now going on,
the fish will soon bo exterminated. Tho
fish commission has attempted this in
a small way, but tlioy aro aided but little
by tho government, and havo beunnblo
to accomplish but littlo or nothing. One
of the grievances that tney complain of
is mac mo nyor is umy ciosea uy law
ono day in each week during tho run.
The fish are only allowed one day in sev
en to escape tho nets, and this period is
practically reducod to twenty hours. It
should bo thirty-ix hours. Fishing
shoald cease at noon Saturday and
should not bo resumed till Monday
morning at G o'clock. Salmon in ascend
ing to tho spawning ground travel at a
speed varying, according to their condi
tion, strength of the current etc, from
six to fourteen miles an hour. If, as at
resent, fishing closes at Suisun on Sun
ay and is resumed all along tho river
on Monday, tho fish which passed Suisun
on Sunday havo not passed Conrllind
and other up-river points before fishing
is resumed, and thus thoy fail to escape
the nets and aro nearly all taken. Fall
fishing should bo strictly prohibited. It
should be a misdemeanor for any one to
offer for sale any fall fish, for they are
positively unfit for food, as any physi
cian at all-well informed can tell. Fall
fishing is ruining tho salmon industr3
There is estimated to bo over in Great
Britain now, in nn unsalable condition,
Sressing on tho market like n load on a
yspeptic's stomach, over 209030 cases
of fall salmon, that will not bring much
moro than freight, insurance and charges.
Fall salmon is being offered in Great
Britain at 13 shillings a caso.Tho differ
ence between this and tho prico at which
Columbia spring salmon sold at a few
days ago is 10 shillings or nbont 2.50 a
case, or GO cents n dozen. If there is
anything in tho world that is offensive it
is poor or spoiled salmon. Ono who has
encountered it much is apt to find his
stomach rovoltforover afterwards against
that class of food, and salmon producers
are steadily losing customers and check
ing consumption by reason of tho exist
ence of such fish. Tho salmon packers
aro debauching their, industry much as
the lobster packers of alamo did theirs
thrco or four years ago, when the demand
for lobsters in Great Britian fell off GO
per cent. It was from this falling off
that salmon got its boom, and now tho
salmon business is following tho same
course, owine to fall fishius mainlv. as
it is carried on in outside rivers, like the
Rogue, the Eel, the Umpqua, and on the
Sacramento. Fall fish is not allowed to
be packed on tho Columbia, and
it is largely on that account
that tho Columbia river .pack
is in such demand and enjoys such a
preference over all others in the markets
of the world. The prico of salmon is now
about 15 per cent, less than it was at the
corresponding timo last year, but this
falling off is probably moro owing to
sympathy with other articles of manufac
ture than anything else. 11 tho prices of
sugar, wheat or any other staple commod
ity aro compared with tho prices of ono
year ago it will bo seen that the depreci
ation is more marked than in salmon.
Sugar is probably 25 per cent lower, wheat
40 per cent lower than ono year ago, and
tho fact that salmon has depreciated so
little, in tho faco of all tho drawbacks
enumerated above, proves how strong a
a hold it has on the trade. It has probably
maintained its vnluo better than almost
any other article of food consumption,
except those which have been favored by
a failure of tho crop in certain localities.
And when an industry has so bright a
prospect it is too bad that it should not
be better taken aire of a branch of in
dustry that foots up 3.000,000 a year.
Just think of it! Thero isn't enterprise
enough in our government to protect the
industry and see that tho propagation of
fish goes on, and tho enormity of this
neglect can best be appreciated when it is
considered that thi3 5,000,000 industry
requites for its perpetuation a beggarly
allowance of but 3,000, 10,000 or 15,000.
