No preparation for Throat and Lung
Troubles is so prompt in its elfoets, c
agreeable to the taste, and bo widejj
known, as this. It is the family medi
cine in thousands of households.
"I have suffered for yeais f:om a
bronchial trouble that, whenever I take
coliLor am exposed to inclement weath
er, shows itself by a very annoying
tickling sensation in the throat and by
difficulty in breathing. I have tried a
great many remedies, but none does so
well as Ayer's Cherry Pectoral which
always gives prompt relief in returns of
my old complaint." Ernest A. Hepler,
Inspector of Public Roads. Parish Ter
re Bonne, La.
" I consider Aers Cherry Pectoral a
most important remedy
For Home Use-
I have tested its curative power, in inv
Jamiljtnaaytinieg dtlrtiig tiiS paa
thirty years, and hae neer known t
to fail. It will relieve the most serio' s
affections of the throat and lung,s,
whether in children or adults." Mrs.
E. G. Edgerly, Council Ulufls, Iowa.
."Twenty years ago I was troubled
with a disease of the lungs. Doctors
afforded me no relief and considered
my case hopeless. I then began to use
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and, before I
had finished one bottle, found relief. I
continued to take this medicine until a
cure was effected. I believe that Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral saved my life."
Samuel Griggs, "Waukegan, III.
" Six years ago I contracted a severer
cold, which settled on my lungs and
ioon developed all the alarming symp
toms of Consumption. I had a cough,
night sweats, bleeding of the lungs,
pains in chest and sides, and was so
prostrated as to be 'confined to my
bed most of the time. After trying
various prescriptions, without benefit,
my physician finally determined to give
me Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I took it,
and the effect was magical. I seemed
to rally from the first dose of this
medicine, and, after using only three
bottles, am as well and sound as ever."

New York, Oct 14.- - JoLu L Sul
livan has spent the $20,000 that he
won in his fight with Kilrain. and is
now dependent on his friends for sup

the Vanderbilt hotise with eleven re

and nothing was too good for them.
Sullivan was arrested by governor
Lowry's minions, and accompanied
by n chosen few returned: to his old
battle ground. He paid all the ex
penses of the trip. He returned to
the Vanderbilt and enjoyed the same
high living. He soon afterwards went
to Boston with 32,000, all that re
mained of his small fortune. As soon
as he reached Boston he went to

A Boom For Albany.
At Albany, the Santiam canal, city

John Crawford, to Col. Hogg, wua
yesterday sold to n syndicate for
$300,000. This syndicate has pur

It is announced that, together with
the Oregon Pacific company, I hey

The Indian At The Polls.
Washington-. Oct. 14. The Indian,
as a political factor, is likely, in the
near future, to attract public atten
tion. By recent actB of congress,
every Indian over 31 yearn of age,
who receives an allotment of Saud in
severalty becomes a voter. The suc
cessful termination of tho negotia
tions with the Sioux Indians next
year will throw into the state 4,973
voters. The other nations now be
ing negotiated with, will soou make
many more. At the interior depart
ment it is thonght that upwards of
20,000 Indians will be entitled to vote
at the next presidental election.

Not at All Improbable.
An enthusiastic citizen of Astoria
says that the recent visit of Messrs.
Hoag, Hogg and other officials of the
Oregon Pacific railroad to ABtoria
was for the purpose of spying outthe
land with a view of securing terminal
facilities for their line, when it has
made connections and become a
transcontinental road. He is certain
that the company will, in the not far
distant futuro extend their road from
Albany by way of Forest Grove and
the Nehalem valley to deep water at
Astoria. Oregonian, 15.

MILLI0HS OF SALMON.
Artificial Propagation the Salvation.
"Artificial propagation is the only
salvation of the salmon packing in
dustry on the Columbia river," said
an ABtoria canner to at Oregonian
reporter yesterday. "Excessive fish
ing has diminished the number of
salmon in the river, and if something
effective is not done one of Oregon's
greatest industries will go by the
"Ten years "ago, when artificial prop
agation was inaugurated, it had a
good effect Then operations were
suspended for a number of years,
during which lime the river was well
fished. Artificial propagation was
resnmed at the Clackamas .hatchery
three "years ago. and in 1891 we will
begin to derive benefit from it"
"There is no reason why the Colum
bia river canneries should not be
supplied with fish at 25 cents apiece.
A sufficient number of hatcheries
would serve the purpose. Oregon
and Washington should have three
hatcheries apiece, capable of turniug f
out 60,000,000 .young fry into the
river annually, which would stock the
Columbia river with moro fish than it
has ever been knowu to haveenough
to supply the whole world with
canned salmon at prices that would
bring it within the means of all. We
have now ono small hatchery that
turns between 4,000,000 and 6,000,000
fry into tho river anuually. This is
good work so far as it goes, bill it
does not go far enough.
"More deponds on the Columbia
river than people generally kuoiv.
At the rale at which the Alaskau
waters are being fished it will be only
a few years beforeth&y will be fished
out I think general abandonment
of the field will follow nnlesa artificial
propagation is taken up. It will
naturally be several years before
there will be aby results. Theu the
world will have to fall back again on
the Columbia river for the bulk of
its salmon supply, and if we propa
gate we will be able to meet the da
mand." "There isauoth.er- problem that
cannera nre tr3ng to srilvejind that
is how to get jaw materialat prices
below those which have beeji preva
lent on the river for several seasons.
The inquiry is for cheap fish, fish
that can be had at from S1.25to S1.35
per dozen cans. The packs of Al
aska, f uget sounu ami or other in
lets along the coast command these
prices while the Columbia fish brings
the gilt edgo figure of S1.60. We
recognize that we must sell for lower
figures in order to hold our own
against tue worm, anu to ao this we
must get. raw fish at correspondingly
low prices. Whether we can do this
or not, is the question."
'In Alaska the raw salmon costs
the cannors all the way from 50 cents
to SI a caBP, while tho Columbia
packers have to pay 83.75. That is
a large difference in tho face of com
petition. It is only tho known su
periority of the Columbia salmon
that has enabled it to hold its own in
the market. It is a very serious
question whether the people can be
found who will pay gilt-edge prices
for our pack."
"A reasonable price per fish wonld
be 90 cents to SI, as compared with
SI to S1.25 now, which would reduce
the cost per case for raw material
from S3.75 to 82.70 S3. The lower
prices would have a tendency to di
minish the number of fishermen, aud
as there is just so much money to be
distributed every year, it wonld be
more advantageous to the fishermen
to divide it among a few men thnu
among a great many. Ono-half of
the fishermen come from California
and stay ouly so long as money is to
be made, leaving the home fishermen
to get blood out of a turnip during
the remainder of the season. Lower
prices would keep these fellows out
of the field and give the local fisher
men full sway.
"A fisherman's wages does not
amount to a great deal, lo be sure.
This year the pack was 350,000 oases,
which, at three fiah per oase, which
i'b the average', makes the total catch
of fish aboht 1,950,000. At 81.25 per
fisli we-have $1,812,000 to be divided
among3,000 fishermen, wjjich gives
them $437.50 apiece for their season's
work, and as, jthey do not do much
during -"the rest of the year, it
ambuhta practically to a year's wages.
Thai ia th&genernl average; the indi
vidual -wages is much less. Divided
among the 1,800 boats on the river,
1,050,000 fish are 583 fish to eaoh boat,
which, at $1.25 a fish would brine
j 8728.75 to eaoh boat. It takes two
men to-run a boat, and the share of
eaoh is $364.37. The gill net men do
not fare so. well as the men who use
the seine nets. There is a story cur
rent on the river that one seine net
uian caught and sold between 820,000
and $30,000 .worth of salmon this
