-: ' ' " -Death of Dr. Cahaulss.
Dr. Cabaniss, for several years a
resident of Ft Stevens and Astoria,
died at San Francisco last Saturday.
Deceased was a native of "Williams
burg, Virginia, and was sixty years,
six montbB and fifteen days old. He
was a man of more than ordinary in
formation, active and energetic, al
ways taking a great interest in public
concerns. About eighteen months
ago he received an appointment from
Gov. Stevenson oi laano, as superin
tendent of ith'e insane asylum at
Blackfeet, which position he held for
some time. The cause of his death
is not known. Mrs. Cabaniss is now
in San Francisco.
T. T. -Cabaniss wbb of a dis

the Marvland university in 1847 and
went-tp California in "49, locating in
Shasta county, "where he became well
- known as a skillful practitioner. In
1852 he was a member of the Cali
fornia legislature and occupied a
prominent place in the Democracy of
that state for many years. In 1872
he entered the United States army as
"surgeon, and on several oc
casions, particularly in the
Modoc' war of 1873, distin
guished " himself by his courage
and intrepidity. He was subse
quently stationed at Fort Stevens
andpracticed his profession in this
city where one of his sonB now re
Bides. He was a man who was aotu
uted through life by a high sense of
honor, and leaves behind him the rec
ord tif an honorable career and a
stainless name. The funeral took
"3 place frdm'TSt Bridget's church in
San Francisco last Monday. The
funeral ceremonies were conducted
by Rev. Father Birmingham, and
Hon. James A. Johnson, Dr. John
M. Dickson, U. S. A, Colonel P. A.

Lecture at Liberty Hall.
v -...SaniuekP. Putnam deliverod nn
"" TiWe'TGeturc" at'TSiberty Hall last
night, which was attentively listened
to by a large audience. To report his
lecturo would bo like an attempt to
compress Mt Hood into a nutshell.
Hi3 theme was "Universal Human
Liberty," a great subject to which he
did fnll justice. He is a- strong, for
cible speaker, of pleasing presence, flu-
ent language and expressive delivery.
Ho made' many telling points, which
we're heartily applauded. One quo
tation will give an illustration of his
style.- Of the difference between Uni
versalists and Unitarians he said: "A
Univeraalist believed God was too
good .to damn man; a Unitarian be
lieved, man was too good to be
damned." In a peroration of great
merit he made an earnest plea for the
; freedom of human thought and urged
the organization of a branch of the
American Socular Union to aid in
the accomplishment of this task.

A DIMINISHING INDUSTET.
Decrease of Sacramento's Salmon Oatch.
Some Remedies for the Evils Proposed.
S. F. Bulletin 19.
A gentleman who has given much at
tention to tho subject, and who has taken
great interest in the propagation of fish
in this state. BDeaks as follows concern
ing tho rapid decrease in tho product of
me saimon nsnenes in this state:
and kindred industries of California have
made steady growth, a minor, but impor
tant interest in the prosperity of the
stato has steadily decreased, until now it
is said to be on the verge of abandon
ment. This is the salmon-canning in
dustry, the principal source being the
Sacramento river, where the eaten for
the last fire years hag lessened until the
business is conducted at a positive los3 to
the few firms still engaged in it. Up to
1883 the catch of salmon in this river was
abundant and the canned product was to
be found in most parts of Europe as well
as the United States. Now the brands of
Sacramento canned salmon are noted for
their scarcity and there is the prospect of
their extinction in the near future.
"On examination there seems to be no
good reason why salmon-canning on the
Sacramento river should cease; in fact,
there is every prospect that it would re
gain its former prosperity if vigorous
efforts are made to produce that result.
The natural conditions of the lower or
main river are the same as they havo
been in the past; in fact, one evil, the
discoloration of the water by mining de
bris, is about ended. The tributaries,
viz., the Upper Sacramento, Pitt and
McCloud rivers, have the same advant
ages ior spawning nsu, aa iiiey uave uuu
heretofore. It needs only energetic and
continued efforts against unlawful prac
tices and restocking with young fish to
increase the catch of salmon to at least
its original numbers. If proper efforts
are made to prevent the destruction of
young fish by tho Chinese in tho waters
of San Pablo and Suisun Bays and the
sloughs on the main or lower river, and
to prevent sawdust and other injurious
matter destroying the spawning grounds
in the tributaries, there is no good reason
why, with annual restocking, the salmon
canning industry will not resume its
former importance on the Sacramento in
the near future.
"The late B. B. Redding, fish commis
sioner, just before his death in 1882, had
in contemplation increasing the stocking
of the tributaries of the Sacramento river
far beyond that of former years. He
claimed there was no limit to increasing
the number of young fish except that of
the supplies of food to be found in the
tributary streams where they were to
grow until ready to migrate to sea say
one year after hatching. As after that
time they found their food in salt water
there would be no demand on the rivers
the salmon ascended to fpawn. To uso
his own words, he 'intended to stock the
Sacramento river with young fish so that
adult salmon returning to spawn should
crowd the lower river so that vessels
could hardly pass through them.' His
intentions were to make the Sacramento
like the Frazer and other rivers in British
Columbia, where the annual migration of
salmon made tho water at times seem
solid with fish. Siace Mr. Bedding's
death there haTe been no young salmon
artificially hatched out and placed in the
Sacramento, and from the young fish be
ing taken in millions by the Chinese fish
men in illegal nets, the depredations of
the seals on adult nsn and tne eaten tor
human food, the number of fish taken
for canning purposes has dwindled to
about one-fifth ox what it was in 1882.
"A comparison of the catches made or
rather canned for the past five years will
be instructive; also the prices paid for
same capital invested in the industry and
employment given to those engaged in
the boats, taking the fish an the Sacra
mento .river: In 1882 there was canned
200,337 cases of 4 dozen 1-pound cans; in
1883. 150,400 cases; in 18&. 81,450 cases;
m 1WS5, 44,4UU cases, and in itfG, 3b,5U0
coses. The catch of the present year is
not yet over, but the indications are that
it will be less than that of 18SG. The
value -of thecinned salmon based upon
an average of L50 per case was, in 1882,
S901.51G: in 1883, S67G.800: in 1884. $369.-
525; in 1835, $199,800 and in 18S6, $164-,
250. In 1882 there were ten canneries
putting up salmon, with an investment
of $1,000,000 capital, employing in the
season 1.500 boats manned bv 4.000 men.
In addition to the fishermen there were
about one thousand persons employed in
the canneries, beside those engaged in
the transportation of product and ma
terials for boxes. Aside from the salmon
canned large quantities were salted and
smoked as well as a larger and cheaper
supply for local purposes than there is at
"To permit the salmon-canning indus
try of the Sacramento river to perish un
der the circumstances as above stated,
by negleoting measures to insuro its con
tinuance, is not only a blot upon the in
telligence of our people but is a crime
whose influence will extend to future
generations. Here is an industry that
has given employment to thousands of
people, investment of capital, and in the
opinion of competent judges could be in
creased many fold, going to destruction.
All enforcement of the law against tak
ing immature fish by Chinese fishermen
and other offenders would do much to
remedy the evil. Add to this a liberal
restocking the river with young fish by
the fish commissioners, and in not longer
than four years hence salmon-canning
should again resume its former value.
The salmon canning industry on the Co
lumbia has steadily declined of late
years, and as that river and its main
tributary forms the boundary line be
tween Oregon and Washington and Idaho
Territories a concurrence of the legisla
tures of all three will be required before
its waters can be efficiently protected.
The fishing interests of each being dif
ferent as to season, it is not probable
any joint measures for the protection
and increase of salmon will be taken.
The Sacramento river being entirely with
in tho boundaries of this state its laws
for the protection of salmon can and
should be enforced so as to insure a con
tinuance if not increase of the annual
Tlieir Business Booming.
Probably no one thing has caused
such a general revival of trade at W. E.
Dement & Co.'s Drug Store as their giv
