A curious incident happened on the
bark Jane Sprott now in port, while she
was lying in the stream at Astoria. The
runner for a sailing boarding -kese
came on board and began conversation
with a seaman who had previously
promised to desert the vessel. The sailor
was not inclined to fulfill his promise,
and some hot words were used. Both
men went down in the forecastle where
a fight ensued and Jack was worsted, be
ing struck about the head and stunned.
The "sailor grabber" then carried his
victim to the deck and threw him over
bag and baggage into a small boat
moored alongside tho vessel, and made
for'the shore. Nothing further has been

Ronrrs of Enaraont Value Which Inalt
In a few weeks will begin the annual
catch of Columbia river salmon. It is a
business that lies at the basis of our pros
perity here in Astoria, and, at present,
when the outlook for the salmon season
is the reverse of encouraging, business of
all kinds is correspondingly depressed.
Every year comes to Astoria a crop that
needs but the harvesting; without plowing
or seeding or cultivating, the strip of
water in front of our doors yields from
2,000,000 to $3,000,000. no" area of its
s?z9 in the world being more productiva;
Wj$n Bryant wrote his ''Thanatopais,
he said: "All that tread the globe are
but a handful to the tribes that slumber
in its bosom." So it may be said that the
fish that come in to the Columbia river
are but the merest fringe, the scantiest
ravelings of that great mantle of finny
life that covers the waters of the ocean
that tosse3 to the west.
At our city's gates lie inexhaustible
treasures; sources of Wealth surer and
better tbnn any gold or silver mine that
was ever opened. We refer to the great
fishing possibilities of this northwest
coast. At intervals efforts have been
made in a small way to demonstrate this
by men who are possessed of the idea that
ihe business justifies development. Dr.
A. C. Kinney, the Deep Sea Fishing Co.,
and others, have experimented, but from
tuo appliances to band, the experiments
were necessarily neither thorough nor
It would seem as tnougn it were time
for a fish commissioner for the North Pa
cific coast to bo appointed who would
look into the matter, examine and report
and brine to public notice the great
sources of wealth in this line that exist
in adjacent waters.
The explorations wnicu nave been made
on the Atlantic seaboard bv the aid of
liberal grants from cougres3 have been
the means of adding millions to the
wealth of eastern cities and of providing
work for hundreds of thousands of peo
ple, What is already known of the re
sources of the waters of the northwest
Pacific coast makes it certain that an ap
propriation from congress would produce
results quite as satisfactory, it not more
so, than those obtained in thejeast. It
being known for certain that fishing
grounds of vast extent exist all along tho
northwest Pacific coast, they should bo
examined and reported on at the expense
of tho government. The only official sur
veys made hitherto are those by Captain
Bichards, royal navy, in her majesty's
ships Plumper and Hecate between 1S58
and 18(54. The3e surveys were limited to
the western coasts of Vancouver island
and the Queen Charlotte group. But
while the inner shores of these have been
sufficiently well defined for commercial
purposes the outer coast from Alaska to
the Columbia river and south of Astoria
ho s never been properly explored.
Up to the present time the northwest
Pacific coast has been represented in the
markets of the world by salmon only,
and then almost exclusively by river
caught fish. Of the various kinds of
salmon found on the coast the spring
salmon of the Columbia river, oncorhyn
chos quinnat, is admitted to be the finest
in size, flavor nnd'richness. In the Que
naiult river, W. T., is found a very fine
variety, the oncorhynclios keta, delicious
in flavor, and by some considered to rival
the Columbia river fish. It is, however,
considerably smaller, seldom exceeding
fifteen to eighteen inches in length and
four or five pounds in weight. This fish
is abundant in tho sound and can bo
caught in great quantities at Neah bay.
It is a fact worthy of note that salmon
fishing can be carried on all the year
round in the deep waters of the sound,
particularly at the entrance of Port
Townsend bay and Admiralty inlet.
Theruost important of the fish which
swarm in these waters, and which may
be truly said to represent, as Johnson
said of Mr. Thrale's brewing vats, a po
tentiality of riches beyond the dreamB of
avarice, aro the halibut, cod of numerous
kinds, tne smelt and tue Herring, besides
mollusc?, including the oyster, clam and
trepong, oz beche-dc-iner. The Pacific cod
has given rise to a good deal of difference
of opinion on more than one point. For
instance, it was maintained by many
that it was identical with the eastern,
but recent investigations have proved
that tuts is not tue case. 11 is also gen
erally asserted that, when salted, the
western cod is greatly inferior to the
eastern, the flesh being hard and tough,
There seems reason to believe, however,
that this is due to tho fact that the salt
in which the fish are prepared that man
ufactured on the Pacific coast contains
a considerable quantity of limo. It is
also suggested by Sound fishermen that
the hardening of tne flesh is to be
accounted for in somo measure
bv the fact that a long tim6
elapses between the catching of the
nsu and tue curing oi tnem at san Fran
cisco. They are taken in the Okhotsk
sea,- and in the vicinity of tho Schou-
magin island, Alaska, where the fishing
vessels remain several months. Then
comes the voyage to San Francisco, where
the fish are often allowed to remain sev
eral weeks on board before being dried.
That the long period elapsing between
the catching and the curing of the fish,
end the fact of their being dried in the
arid climate of San Francisco does spoil
the fish, Is made clear by the statement
of a gentleman who is recognized as an
authority on all matters connected with
fish, that he has tasted cod taken at
Neah bay and Port Angeloa, W. T
cured as soon as caught, and that they
were excellent. The same authority also
states that he has eaten cod caught and
cured at Masset, Queen Charlotte's is
lands, which were in every respect equal
to the eastern fish. These fish, he adds,
were cured with Liverpool salt. There
seems no reason, therefore, why Pacific
cod should not compete on equal footing
with that from the Atlantic. But it i3
urged that cod taken off the Alaska coast
could, not be cured on tne spot, tne
climate of Alaska being considered too
humid for the purpose. Even should
this be so it has not been demonstrated
beyond the possibility of a doubt that
the climate of Astoria is not adapted for
fish curing. This place has ths advan
tage of being several hundred miles near
er than San Francisco to the fishing
banks. Before quitting the subject of
the cod proper, it may be added that
there seems to bo no difference in the
aualitv of the oil yielded by the eastern
and the western fish, and the quantity is
comparatively the same, although not
actually so, the livers of the cod on this
coast being very small.
Besides the true cod many other varie
ties swarm in Paget sound. Those wor
thy of special notice as food fish are the
green, the black and the rock cod. The
green cod ranges from ten to. twenty-five
founds in weight and is rich in flavor,
t bears considerable resemblance to the
true cod, and is sold as such by dealers
in Victoria and elsewhere. Although
good eating, it assumes when dried or
salted a rusly appearance, which detracts
from its market value. It is. however,
well worth the catching.
This article is taken and adapted from
one in BradstreeCs of March 7th and is
designed to aid the idea intended by the
author viz: the hastening of tho time
when the attention of the government
will bo directed to this important matter.
Of all the fishes of the northwest Pa
cific coast none seem likely to provo
more remunerative than the black cod,
anoplopma fimbria, so named by Pro
fessor Tarleton H. Bean, to whom speci
mens were sent in 1878. Tho late Alex
ander C. Anderson, of Victoria, fisheries
inspector for British Columbia, in a
report to tho minister of marine and
fisheries, said, that from tho firmness
and richness of its flesh-, it will bear salt
ing equally well with tho salmon, and
adds: "I do not question that, with
time, this fish will prove, with the aid of
proper vessels and tne needful appliances,
a valuable adjunct to the resources of
the provincial waters, either as a market
fish, or certainly for the extraction of
oil." Black cod were first put on the
market in the fall of 1833. They were
caught at Queen Charlotte's islands,
salted and sent to Victoria, where pood
judges declared them to be the finest
they had ever 'tasted. Some were also
sent to the United .States fish commis
sioner at Washington, s6me to the Bos
ton fish bureau and others to New York
dealers. The opinion, in these quarters
was the same as that expressed at Victo
ria. Black cod is among large fish what
the sardine is among small. No sys
tematic fihorv for them has yet been
established. Black coda rb plentiful off
tho northwest coast and Paget sound.
"Whoever may be the enterprising man,"
says the gentleman who drew attention
to them, as detailed above, "to suggest a
successful method of capturing them, so
as to put them on the eastern market in
quantities, will have struck a bonanza
better than a gold mine." For small
boats the be3t fishing season is during
July and August, but with smacks of
from thirty to forty tons fishing could
be carried on all the year round.
Twenty-seven varieties of tho rock cod
are found inj Paget sound. The largest
is the rough red rock cod, which not in
frequently attains a weight of twenty-five
pounds. At Capo Flattery and the en
trance to Fuca strait it can be taken in
vast quantities. Salted it is excellent,
equal in flavor to tho ordinary pickled
cod, but, as in the case of the green cod,
its appearance is somewhat against it.
The western and the eastern halibut
are identical. This fish is found in pro
fusion along tho whole coast of Alaska
and British Columbia and as far as Cape
Flattery. The chief fishing ground is off
the entrance to the strait of Fuca. No
determined attempt to introduce the hali
but of this coast as a staple article of
commerce has yet been made. In 1870,
the Emily Stevens schooner caught a car
go, but since then the fishing has been
confined to the Indians at Capo Flattery.'
The operations'of tho Indians are greatly
limited; as with their slightly-built open
canoes they can only fish when weather
and tide aro favorable. Large, decked
vessels could ride out the storms at an
chor, and would have no need to await a
favorable condition of the tide. Although
nots equal to salt cod, halibut freshened
and slightly smoked is esteemed a deli
cacy. It can scarcely fail to be of solid
commercial value, as smoked halibut
commands a large sale in eastern mur
kets, immenso quantities being consumed
in eastern and interior cities. The sup
ply of halibut on this coast is practically
inexhaustible. At present the market is
confined to a summer trade on the Co
lumbia and the sound, and even this
limited business is exceedingly profitable.
Apart from the trade in the fresh fish
shipped in ice, a canning industry might
easily be built up. The halibut is a dry
fish, but a little olive oil in each can would
obviate this. Canneries at Astoria hav
ing unlimited supplies of tho fish close to '
hand, might do a vast business and create !
an industry nearly as great as that of
salmon canning. .
Another fish of which there is an inex-1
haustible supply is the smelt. Thous-
andsof bushels are annually taken by
the Quilleute Indians at Quilleute, south
of Cape Flattery. Some idea of the mag-1
SS ftSh'SELSTSkKT g
the proceedings of the United States na-1
tioual museum that Captain Carroll, of
the steamer Alexander Duncan, reported J
that while on a voyage from Astoria to
Neah bay. in 1870, he ran through one of
the schools between Point .Gienville and
Quilleute, extending nearly forty miles.
The herring, pointed trout, kelp fish,
flounder and skate are well represented.
The herring is valuable not only as a
food fish, but for the oil which is extract
ed from it and tho guano which is pre
pared from the refuse. Oysters and
clams are found in great quantities in
the bays and narrow inlets, and there is
no end of scollops and mussels. Tho
oyBiersof Shoalwater bay and Olympia
have been well .known for manv years.
They are very small, however. But as it
is found that eastern oysters thrive and
grow fat in these waters oyster culti
vation is profitable on Shoalwater
bay. Lobsters also would probably do
well. They have been introduced on the
California coasts with very good results.
There is every variety of fish from a
shrimp to a halibut to be found on the
coast and in the rivers of this section and
it is time that a government commis
sioner was sent out here to examine and
make an elaborate report. '

possible that the fish misht be causht in

)ear Sir: The trout from Portland i?
the common- Kocky mountain trout, or
Clarke's troat. or'red-throated tront
salMit m'rjntmlui pallus.
In Washington territory it is known
as mountain trout when taken in rivers
and brook, and salmon trout when ta
ken iu the sea or river mouths. Sea-run
specimens are more silvery, with finer
spots and lew red than those taken in
the small streams, and larger individuals
are sometimes taken in the sea than
are often seen in the river.
There is not the slightest doubt that
the so-called salmon trout of the fish
dealers, nnd the mountain trout of the
sportsmen are one and the same fish, the
only differences being temporary, de
pendent on the water and possibly on
the food. I have myself caught hun
dreds of these same trout with the seina
about Tacoma, in the sea the locality
from which this specimen wa3 obtained.
This species may always be known
when fresh by a deep scarlet or crimson
blotch on the membranes of the lower
side of the lower jaw.
The fish is, therefore, both a mountain
trout and salmon trout, as the names are
understood in Washington territory and
Oregon. If the laws permit the killing
of one and prohibit the kiling of the
other, the only test is whether caught in
salt or fresh water Very truly yours,
