president of the New York Central,
remove one, says the ('hrono-h,ot
the ablest railroad men in the coun
try. Hutter came up from the ranks
awl received much of his training un
der old Commodore Yanderbilt. He
was appointed traflic manager when
ihe commodoi c found the business of
the road gi owing beyond his reach.
Lake all the men who had been ac
customed to rely upon the old auto
crat for his decisions, Euttcr one day
soon after his appointment referred a
knotty freight problem to him for
aettleiHcnt. The old man looked at
his officer for a moment and then said:
Tim. how much do 1 pay yon a
year?" llutter replied, stating his
salary. "Well," said the commodore,
I pay you that to have you settle just
such points as these. Don't ever
bring any more freight business to me
unless I tell you to." AVhen Win.
H. Yanderbilt retired from active con
trol of the Central. Eulter was ap
pointed president with a salary, it is
understood, of $10,000 a year. He
lias held hie new position culy about
a year, dying in the prime of life and
in the fullness of his strength.
lluw Huxny Ward Beeciieu's ser
mon last Sunday was devoted to a
reconciliation of the facts of evolu
tion with the fact of human sinful
noM. He said : "The idea that God
created the human race and that two
r them without experience were put
under the temptation of the arcli
fiend, and fell in disobedience to
what they did not understand,
and were kicked out of the
garden as no parent" would treat
a child, transmitted corruption that
was the result of disobedi
ence through countless ages, was
wrong. 1 hate it." he said, "because
I love God, and abhor it because I
love justice." He went on to sa
that if all the human beings created
in conditions of imperfection and
transgression were waiting in unmiti
gable torment he never wished to
mention the name of God again, or to
violate his own nature by calling him
father. A murmur of surprise spread
through the vast congregation at the
close of the sermon.
It is the theory of the medical men
who believe cholera to be caused by
a bacillus which poisons food and
water, that the germ may be killed by
heat, and they recommend that all
m water should be boiled and all food
cooked bofore it is drunk or eaten.
The theory is new but the practice is
old. In 1S19 the cholera raged in
Paris, Ky., with great violence. A
'family of thirty whites and blacks,
had not a single case of sickness
iumoug its members, yet no precau
tion? were taken except to cook the
food-aud boil the drinking water.
Higgixs. appointment clerk of the
treasury, is credited with the state
ment that between thirty and forty
thousand removals and appointments
have been made since this adminis
tration has come into power. This is
no doubt an exaggeration of the
number as really sta'o I by Mr. Hig
gins, for it would bo one-third of all
the federal office-holders, yet it is
quite true that those who complain of
the slow progress the administration
is making in the matter of filling
offices would be surprised to know
how many changes have Leen made
in a quiet and unobtrusive manner.
It is estimated that at the rate which
has been maintained since March 4th,
there will be scarcely a handful of
the opposition in office in twelve
months from that time, so far as
those offices are concerned to which
the civil service rules do not apply.

as " a being who rules every country
but his own." From the present
English status, it looks as it the Irish
were masters of the situation in the

An Italian ship has been sheathed
with glass plates, cast like iron plates
so as to fit the hull, to take the place
of copper sheathing?. The joints of
the plates are made water-tight by
the use of water-proof mastic. The
advantages claimed for glass over
copper are its insensibility to oxida

THE ALM0X PACK-
Abtohia. June l."tb, 1633.
Owing to the depression of the salmon
market for the two preceding years, a
feeling of indifference about running
thoir canneries this year prevailed among
the packers at the opening of the season
In consequence of this, the usual prepar
ations for this year's catch "were neg
lected. Instead of beginning can making
two months in advance of the fishing in
order to bo supplied at all times during
the season for a sudden or large run of
fish, such an emergency was not provided
for. When it is remembered that the
nets will not last two seasons, the fail
ure of the cannerymen generally to equip
with the customary new fishing gear is
anomer signincani met. xience wune
heretofore they have aimed to possess
ample supplies' for putting up all the fish
mat mignt oe muueu, mey arc now limi
ted in cans pnd all other supplies, and
should there be what is familiarly called
' a July run " they are not prerared' in
wnnm.f ilnhjMLnnn ! ,llk Wri
tinued depression of the market has
caused a continuance of their indiffer
ence about increasinc the pack.
Few canneries started "on the first of
April, the beginning of the fishing sea
son, the majority commenced a month
later. The following, to-wit: Columbia
Canning Co., Columbia Itiver Packing
Co., White Star Packing Co., the upper
cannery of Warren & Co., It. D. Hume,
and Jas. Quinn. tho first four of which
number packed in ISSt a total of 48,543
cases! are not running at all this year.
The following started on the first of
June, having been idlo half the season,
to-wit. bamuel Xilmore, Mm. ilume,
Astoria, Geo. T. Meyer & Co., Ocean
Canning Co.. Point Adams Packing Co.,
Seaside Packing Co. and the Union Pack
ing Co. which was then started only for
the purpose of putting up a limited
That the aggregate catch of the season
will be very light is more evident from
these additional facts.
Tho canneries now at work are run
ning fewer boats than heretofore. Tho
low water in the Columbia resulting
from the lack of the annual freshet has
diminished the run of fish on the lower
river, and at the same time rendered the
fish wheels at the cascades useless, there
by reducing tho catch on the upper river.
The season is very similar to that of
1877 which produced tho lightest pack
shipped since tho development of the
salmon canning industry. The fisher
men's striko closed the canneries for
about ten days during the best of the
JIaj run, since which the run has been
Tho following figures obtained from
the four representative canneries hereaf
ter named furnish data from which an
approximate estimate of the total pack
on tho Columbia river for the season of
1835 may bo made:
Astoria Packing Co., in 1831 began
April 1st; in 1885, April 27th. Pack June
1st. 1834. 11,000 cases: June 1st, 188.1, 3.G0G
cases. Juno 10th. ISSt, 14,013 cases: June
10th, 1885, 6,000 cases. Average number
oinsnper boat from dune 1st to Juno
10th, 1834, 1G3; from Juno 1st to June
10th, 1885, 7.rK. A. Booth & Co. began
in 1854, April 15th, in 1885, April 1st.
The relative results hero shown aro com
puted from the catch of the same num
ber of boats (34) both seasens: Pack
Jnue 1, 1854, 5.71G cases; June 1st, 1885,
(fifteen additional davs fishing) 3,845
cases. Juno 10th, 1S34, 0.OSG cases: June
10th, 1885, 5,584 cases, or a decreaso of
33 per cent to June 1st, and or .isK per
cent during tho present season. J. O.
Hanthorn a Co. From June 1st, to June
10th,fshow from their fish books the fol fel fol
eowing: From 224 boat reports both
years, in 1831, 4,833 fish or 1.G12& cases:
in 1885, 2,991 fisli or 997 cases.
Occident Packing Company Pack
June 1st, 18St, 4173 cases; June 1st, 1885,
3321 cases; Junu 10th. 1881, CS40 oases;
June 10th, 1835, 4187 cases. Average
number of fish per boat from June 1st to
Juno 10, 1831, 160; from Juno 1st to June
10th, 1885. 78. The apparent discrepancy
between the pack of the two years and
the average number of fish per boat is
due to the fact that a quantity of fish
were borrowed from other canneries in
May, to be returned l8ter in the season.
From all of which it may safely be
assumed that tho total output for the
river will fall behind that of 18S4 fully
200,000 cases, and although the markot is
at present supplied with the paok of last
year, cannerymen nre justifiable in
assuming that prices for their goods
must advance in the near future.
