The salmon canners of this state, says
the S. F. Chronicle of the 10th inst.. are
beginning to turn their attention from
the Sacramento river to the Alaskan
fisheries. Of the 1,'JOO or 1.TXK) fishing-
boats which dotted the yellow waters of
the Sacramento between Benicia and the
capital city last season, about 100 will
make their appearance this jear. The
regular spring run will begin within a
fortnight, and a small number of salmon
are being taken out daily for the city
fish markets. Those already caught are
of a very good quality and commanded
fair prices. Although some of the can
ners profess to be discouraged at the out
look for the season, others are confident
that there will be more money in the
business this year than last, as a number
of-the smaller cauners have gone out of
the trade, giving the larger companies a
chance to buy cheaper in case the run
holds good throughout the season. One
thing is tolerably certain, and that is,
the canning men will not pay the prices
forraery paid, as cauned salmon never
brought so low a price as at present,
Some of the local dealers will extend
their trade abroad during tho year if
they meet with the success which
they are now counting upon. Some
of the croakers predict a small run,
saying that all indications point that
way at present, tho salmon being
scarcer this spring than ever before, in
spite of the most favorable weather. On
the other hand, one is told by a con
servative canners that indications' go
for nothiug, for when the salmon come
they come with a rush, often taking the
fishermen by surprise, after delaying
their arrival for weeks beyond the usual
One reason for the removal of canneries
to Alaska is that the fish are caught and
furnished to the canners by natives who
are content with a very small recompense
for.their labor. But those of the local
companies who are content to stick to
the old field say that the cost of trans
portation will add materially to the price
of the canned goods, and that, after all,
a better and safer business can be done
at home. Tne Cutting Packing Com
pany intends to continue its salmon can
ning here, while nt the same time it will
do a heavy business at the north. J. H.
Heller, formerly of the Sacramento Kiver
Canning Company, has formed the Arctic
Packing Company, and will establish a
cannery in Alaska this year. The only
canneries on the Sacramento that will
not bo opened 1 his year are tho Kio Vista,
the King Morse at Black Diamond, and
the Sacramento Hiv6r Canning Com
pany's at Collinsville. The others expect
to do a thriving business, us it is pre
sumed that the runs this year will be far
better than last.

Wabhixoton, Murch 12. The dissatis
faction among Democrats here at the
personnel of Cleveland's cabinet is ery
strong. The great majority, however,
have too much discretion to express their
views publicly. Judge Eeagan of Texas
evidently is not one of this number. In
the course of conversation on this sub
ject he savs that President Cleveland hud
apparently made up his cabinet with J
more reference to his own personal predi
lections than to the wishes of the leaders
of the party that elected him. "Four of
the gentlemen are unknown," said Judge
Iteagan. "As to Mr. Ihulicott, I never
heard of him until a few days ago, nor I
did 1 hear of Mr. Manning until the last
campaign, nor of Mr. Whitney, though 1
had heard of the Standard Oil Company.
Of Mr. Vilas I never heard until tho Chi
cago convention met. For this section
of his cabinet the president seems to have
ransacked the country tor strangers who
are practically unknown to the party.'
After this severe criticism, the Texas
statesman turned to the silver question,
observing, with a laugh, that he did not
think the president would have any more
to say on that subject. "President Cleve-
ibuu BuaiiiHi, u., iuui "
iievergiyeuaiiuour iuouuiioiue -u-
was written by some one else for him. It
contained so many egregious blunders I
that the president will not 1)2 apt to ex-
Iiress himself again until he has given nt !
east more than an hour's study to that j
imjKirtant subject." Judge lteagan
further emphasized his unfavorable opin-:
ion of the new president by saying thnt
he ha'd not rend his inaugural message
carefully. A casual glance, however, had
impiessed him with the idea that it was a
very pood document for the Republicans.

Washington, March VJ. Governor
Dingley, of Maine, who is one of Blaine's
intimate friends, Haya the republican
leader has ceased to talk jiolilics and is
apparently oblivious that be wa3 ever a
presidential candidate. -Ha says Blaine

book and enjoys it thoroughly. "The
last yolume willaprobably be completed
in June,' the governor say3, "and Hlaiuc
will then return to Augusta for the sum
mer, as usual.'
'Will he continue his literary labors
after his prose&t work is finished?' was
"I cannot say, positively, but 1 assume
that he will. The cast pf his mind is
strongly literary and it is. not improbable
that he will devote the next few years to
work of that character."
Do Blaine's friends encourage t.j
idea that .he i will receive another nomina-1
tion in 1833?
"I assure yon, upon my honor, that
such a subject is never mentioned to
him. Blaine absolutely refuses to listen
to such suggestions even from those who
know him best. 1 can tell yon further
that Blaine never desired thenominat.on
in 18S4. I don't mind telling vou now.
the election is over, about a talk I had
with him a week before the Chicago con

nomination; I know I nm accused of in

don't believe the republicans can win in
this election. They have been in power
too long aud there aie too many iiu"er

business is depressed and thousands of

'Honestly. I do not. How could he,
with those views? Of course he strained
every nerve to bring about that result,

in vain. Mr. Blaine believed ha could

One of nature's rules is that a man combined with darker velvet, and trim
shall have sleep. If it had been intended med with shaded copper beads.
I that a man should work tweuty-four
hours out of tweuty-four, nature would
have made the sun shine withoutiut errup
tion all the time. Lights are an innova
tion. Wild beasts don't have lights.
They are reserved for man, with his su
perior intelligence and multiplicity of
bodily ailments. Night was made for
sleep'and day for work. The man who
disregards the demands of his mind and
body for the amount of rest which na
tuie claims, suffers sooner or later and
pays dearly for haying abased his prime
rule of health. Nature is tho best book
keeper the world over saw. You may
withdraw your account, but you always
pay back" tho last farthing," und often
cive up the pound of flesh: yes, often
more than the pound. A man may think
he can steal from nature, but he cannot.
' As I said, I do not think a person should
t be waked at morning, and for this reas
en: when a man falls asleep ho is in the'
shop for repairs, as the railroad
men say. His franis and all its intricate
machinery is being overhauled and made
ready for the next day's work. The wear
of the previous day is being repaired.
Nature is doing that herself. She knows
what the tired frame needs just as sho
knows how to make the heart throb and
Rend the blood coursing through tho
veins. Then she takes that tired frame,
lays it down on a bed, surrounds it with
soft darkness p.ud lets the man rest.
Tired "nature's sweet restorer, balmy
sleep,' visits him, aud as the hours wear
by his energies are renewed, his strength
comes back, and finally, when morning
breaks and the sunlight steals through
the lattice, he ojens eyes and is him
self again. Or, if he is early to bed he
wakes with the cock's crowing. Now who
.shall go to that man's side an hour be
fore he opens his eyes and say to nature,
stand aside and let him get up? He has
enough rest.' 'Well,' nature will say.
'you can take him if you will, but I will
