The strike on the O: R & N. boats
on the Sound is reported to be at an
end. On the river the O. It. &a: offi
cials have issued an. order rescinding
wages IU per cent., but, the men de
cline to go back to work at the old
figures, asking for an increase, bo
that the deadlock still continues.
Captains ot tow boats who wero get
ting siixj a month, ask 3125: mates
on all the boats getting S60 ask 75:
pilots getting $75 ask $100; engineers
on Willamette boats getting $90 ask
31UU, and second engineers on all the
boats getting $60, ask S75. As com
pared with elsewhere these are low
wages and justified by tho arduous
character ot the work.
There is bie money to be made
just now off the mouth of the river.
There are several shoals or bevies or
flocks or schools or groups or runs
of seal, genuine fur seal about fifteen
miles outside, and there is quite a
little fleet out there tending to them.
Yesterday there were the two
schooners previously reported, and a
third, the Penelope, with 151 skins
aboard. The Penelope ia an Ameri
can schooner, ot Shanghai, fourteen
days from San Francisco. The two
pilot schooners are out along with
the three sealing schooners, but up
to last accounts had no seals. At
present pilotage outlook, it would be
a paying business for the boys to get
some ammunition and have a crack
at those same seals. Every seal of
them is worth from $5 to $8.
Tho Nebalem Coal company held a
meeting in Portland last Tuesday.
The claims are situated in T. 4 N., R.
4 W., and on sees. 2, 10, 14, 15, 22, 23,
26, 27, 34 and 35, and cover an area
ot about 7.000 acres. The coal meas
ures con3ist ot six true veins or
seams, with numerous smaller ones.
The dip or pitch of coal is 10 to 40
decrees, course 76 degrees east. The
quality is semi-bituminous, and equal
to any mined on the Pacific coast.
The formation is good and solid, with
sandstone roof and bottom. The
coal can be mined for 75 cents per
ton and put on cars. And can be
opened either by shaft or tunnel.
Plenty of fine timber suitable for
logging, and streams large enough
to float logs are found, and a railway
can bebnilt to the mines either from
Scappoose and connect with the
Northern Pacific or Columbia river,
or one can be built from Forest
Grove, a distance ot thirty miles.
Tnere are, says tne world, probably
50,000,000 of tons of saleable coal in
the fields already taken up.
According to the Pendleton Trib
tine the locomotive engineers and
firemen on the O. B. & N. lines were
about to strike even before the cessa
tion of work on the river and sound
division. The Pendleton Tribune of
the 1st. says: Trouble is brewing
among the engineers and tireman on
the line of the V. U. & JN. company.
On Monday last a grievance commit
tee aDDointed by the engineers and
fireman, went to Portland to confer
with Assistant Manager Cookingham
and other officials ot the roadin the
hope ot reaching some satisfactory
conclusion regarding their complaints.
It is understood that both engineers
and fireman are dissatisfied with the
extra work forced upon them and this
with other complaints has led to a
threatened revolt. The situation is
said to be of a serious nature and un
less some satisfactory arrangement is
agreed upon a general strike will be
ordered, embracing not only the O. B.
& N. road bat its connections. One
of the engineers stated this morning
that the men intended to stand firm
and secure their demand or a strike
would be inaugurated that would be
as extensive and complicated as mat
of the (J. 15. & O. road. The comer
ence at Portland is still in progress
and it is hoped that an understanding
will be reached without the men De
ing ordered ont on a strike.

CAPTAIN PAUL BOYTON.
The Famous Swimming Expert Here.
A hearty looking ruddy faced man
is Uapt, Paul iioyton who came down
on yesterday morning's boat. He is
unequaled for water journeys in the
world's history, and is at homo on
the surface of the stormiest ocean.
He has crossed the English channel,
floated on the German ocean or
the North sea, gone up and down the
Atlantic coast, the Gulf of Mexico
and in his rubber suit bids defiance
to storm. He has saved innumerable
lives and has a bushel of decorations
stowed away sent him by kings and
princes in grateful acknowledgement
for having rescued their subjects in
various parts of the world from
His mission here, ia of a practical
nature. He wants to get three car
loads of sea lions and seals, some
mink, otter, mountain lions, and
other animal bric-a-brac, for Lincoln
Park Chicago, the New York Cen
tral Park and the Philadelphia Zoo.
He wants anyone who can get hold of a
seal or sea lion to keep him and he
will pay for the animal.
He is going down to the Seaside,
and expects between the mouth of the
Necanicum and Tillamook head to se
cure all the seals he needs. He wants
to put them into stout boxes, with
lattice work overhead, and a little
water in the boxes and carry them ou
the cars, feeding them a little fish on
He has a trainer who trains tho
seals and teaches them all manner
of cute tricks. On his visit to the
shores of the North sea last year he
brought back a large number of seals,
and was then commissioned to come
to Astoria and get some seals from

Boyton. prior to yesterday, was in
July 1874, at Cape May, New Jersey.
Since then he haa been on every body
of water of any prominence in Eu
rope and America and thinks this
northwest country unequaled in point
of grandeur and scenio beauty.

Tuesday, with a complete outfit and
