In justice Cleveland's court yester
day a Chinamen named Fen F,ang
had a jury trial on the charge of sell
ing opium without having first ob
tained a license therefor. They
found him guilty. The justice fined
him $75 and costs. It is understood
the case will be appealed on the rul

requisite that the prosecution should
prove that the defendant had no
license, but that the defense should
prove if possible that he had.
The Scott-Ward Fight.
About fifty men went on the Clara
Parker at 5:15 yesterday morning to
Harrington's Point to witness a fight
between Thos. "Ward and Bill Scott,
for 250 a side. Tickets were S5.
Arrived on the ground, a twenty-four
ring was made and the men stripped
for the fray. "Ward was the heavier
of the two, and from his previous
record as a stayer bets were in his
favor, though many maintained that
Scott could ontwind him. Johnson
was referee, Alex. Gilbert and Alex.
Grant timekeepers. Dave Campbell
of Portland and DickMcCarron were
Ward's seconds, and Joe Baker and
Ed. Smith performed similar offices
for Ward's light-weight antagonist
For the first twelve rounds Ward
foroed the fighting, and it
looked as if his backers would
win. After that the contest
grew tame and uninterest
ing. As far as time is concerned-the
contest is tilmostwithout
precedent, the fight lasting four hours
and thirty-six minutes. They fought
sixty-nine rounds, three minutes to a
round, one minute rest At the close
of the sixty-eighth round the referee
said that if no one was knocked out
in the next round he would declare
the fight a draw. No one being
knocked out, the fight was decided to
be nobody's, all bets were declared
off, and the crowd returned to Astoria
at half-past two yesterday afternoon.
Both men were disfigured slightly,
each of the principals saying that the
only reason he didn't win the fight
was because the other fellow wouldn't

The strangest part of the situation

up to noon to-day 99 cents reached

steamer station themselves by the
gang-plank and make observations of

GONE TO KANSAS CITY.
More than three months ago Geo.
W. Percy, head bookkeeper for Frank
Bros. Improvement company, startled
a large number of friends and his
family in this city by suddenly disap
pearing. The Masonic fraternity, of
which he was a prominent member,
instituted a rigid search for him, dead
or alive. The mystery attached to his
whereabouts has intensified by the
fact that his accounts are all straight
and his domestic relations reported
to be of s pleasant nature. Up to
within a few days ago it was gener
ally believed that the missing man
had grown insane and wandered off
to some unfrequented spot and died
of exposure. Becent developments
have put a new phase on Percy's dis
appearance. Only a few days ago he
was seen in Kansas City and in good
physical and mental health. He was
sane enough io draw upon a certain
bank in this city, for funds he had de
posited there, through the Commer
cial National bank of Kansas City.
His family still reside in Portland.
Whackeen Want to Stop and Think.
Did you ever see them "milk" the
eggs from the fish? It is so cunous
and yet so simple that I will tell you
briefly how it is done. A large female
salmon, conspicuously large from the
great abundance of eggs she contains,
is taken from the river with a net,
then a man take3 .her by the tail and
lays her back up his bare arm and
with his right hand milks stream
after stream of bright golden eggs
into a wooden ' tub. After taking
many pounds of eggs in this way the
fish is dropped back into the river,
and she swims away good naturedly,
as if rather glad of what had hap
pened. Then a male fish is taken up
with the net out of the river
where fish are- so thick that
you cau literally "stir them with a
stick." And the same process is
gone through with the father of fishes.
Only instead of eggs there is merelv
a milky fluid called "milt." Then he
is flopped back into the river also and
goes his way. Then the man reaches
his broad hand and big arm down
into the wooden tub and stirs the
eggs and milt about; and that is all.
They are "impregnated' now and
ready to be put np in layers of moss
Hud sent thus all over the world. The
man in oharge of the "hatchery" told
uie that not one egg in 100 thuB pre
pared and sent abroad would fail to
hatch; while in truth, by the natural
process iu the streams where fish are
left tn themselves, not one egg in
1,000 ever comes to anything. It
makes nun want to stop and think!
AN OLD TIMER.
San Francisco, Cat,
June 25, 1837,
Colonel Geo. Hunter, a distinguished
pioneer of the northwest, takes his de
parture from our citv to-morrow by
steamer State of California for your
city, visiting relatives thereat and tbenca
proceeding to his home in eastern Wash
ington. It will be interesting to your patrons,
many of whom are well acquainted with
the colonel, to learn that her has secured
the publication of hiB reminiscences, the
supervision of which brought him hither
about two months ago. We are con
vinced after a careful review of the work,
consisting of 450 pages of closely con
densed reading matter, that its advent
will oroate surprise to many; that one
who nover attended school a day in his
life should produce a work of such liter
ary merit suoh fascinating interest, is
conclusive proof of the possession of a
genius of no ordinary character.
Coming to the Pacific coast in the
early fifties, when but a lad of sum
mers, left alone by aocident on the Ore
gon trail over a thousand miles from
western civilization to make his way
thither, with threatened starvation on
one hand, and relentless hostiles on the
other, the hero of these pages, like the
dauntless Joe Meek, his cousin, who bad
fireceded him but a few years, early
earned the noble lesson of self-reliance,
which so well bore him triumphantly
through the conflicts that were in store
for him. For the service he was destined
to render his country in some of her
sorest trials of Indian warfare, the task
he so early learned was of greater utility
than years of training at the best eastern
college -in our land.
The Colonel's health has been much
improved of late but if sufficiently re
cuperated, he will forthwith proceed on a
lecturing tour through the east, commenc
ing at your city. We feel warranted in
predicting for the Colonel a warm re
ception in his travels and a wide sale of
his "Reminiscences of an Old Timer."

WILL THE SHIPJBE REPAIRED?
Restriction Upon Foreigu Residents
Washington. June 28. The second
survey of the Hartford at San Fran
cisco has resulted in the discovered
that the vessel is much more rotten
than at first supposed, and her re
pairs will cost $76,000 more than the
amount estimated by the first board
or inspectors, xnis onngs the es
timated cost of her repairs up to 32
per cent, of her original oost, or 12
per cent, more than the limit pre
scribed by law. There is a great deal
of love for the old flagship of Farra
gut, and naval officers generally, es
pecially those engaged in the late
war, hope that the point will be
stretched to keep her afloat as long
as her beams will hold together.
There is a special appropriation for
repairs of certain war vessels, the
Hartford being among them, and it
is thought that the repairs, thongh
costing more than the limit, can be
made out this special fund. The
secretary, however, in approving the
recommendation of the first board
of survey, expressly stated that the
repairs should not be allowed to go
beyond the limit of cost fixed by law.
He has now under consideration the
question whether the work can be
done under the appropriation men
tioned, and if he concludes that it
can, he will make a concession to the
sentiment entering into the case, and
order the repairs to be made.
Berlin, June 23. The latest anti
German project to which the atten
tion of Berlin officials has been di
rected is the proposal before the cham
ber of deputies making foreign resi
dents in France who may be members
oi associations nostue to a renou in
terests, liable to fine and imprison
ment and expulsion. The proposal is
capable of such elastic interpretation
as to cover all Germans so joining in
Frtuce. The measure, if supported
by the government, will be assumed
here to be directly hostile to Germans,
and lead to an energetic remonstrance
as a breach of the Frankfort treaty.
Tho official gazette for the reichstng,
in contradicting French fables nbont
the suppression of foreign traders and
French manufacturers in Alsace-Lorraine,
defines clearly what the Ger
man government aims to accomplish.
It declares that the government's
desire is to foster nil commercial ac
tivities and to take only such meas
ures as may be necessary to main
tain public pence.
The government has now decided
not to delay further the trial of Klein
and his colleagues for high treason,
committed at the instigation of

wonderful machinery it is. Not only

When these are clogged and choked

San Francisco, June 28. Advices
received here from Sitka, Alaska,
state that the trial of Captain Morri
son, master of the sohooner Laura,
for killing five fur seals in Alaskan
waters within the three-league limit
of the shore, was held in the United
States district conrton June 11th.
After the testimony of a number of
witnesses, Judge Dawson addressed
the jury. Hi3 honor said that the
preponderance of evidence was un
questionably in favor of tho defend
ant, who could not be held liable for
acts committed outside of the three
marine league limit, with the excep
tion of the watera of Behring sea.
which was still an open question,
His honor therefore directed the jury
to return a verdict of not guilty, and
the defendant was liberated. The de
cision rendered is regarded as an im
portant one. Advices further stnto
that three English schoongrs, seized I
ior violation or laws against the kill
ing ot fur-bearing animals within the
territory of Alaska, will soon be sold
by the marshal.
