A sharp aud distinct shock of earth
quake was felt at Port Townsendat,
550 last Saturday afternoon
lasting a few seconds. The
ground shivered as with the force of
an explosion. Goods upon the.shelvc

shook, especially glassware A few
buildings on the water front rocked
perceptiblv aud people ran out into 1
the street, not knowing what was go-

have felt the stiock, but it is reported
by the Victoria Colonist that Vic

(J ratifying Action of- the

this afternoon the house amendment

This is the best of news to all the
commercial world interested in the
great work now in progress at the
mouth of the river. It insures the
continuance or work and ably sup

Drtayrd .Mail Matter.
Alxmtn thousand ton, more or
less, of delayed mail matter are due
here, and when it gets here, there will
be music in the air, and it will be a
season of fasting and prayer for the
post ollice and express employes.
The letters, no doubt, that are over
due, will show up some time, Iwtween
now and the spring, run, but a good
many of the papers will never be un
wrapped. In the old days, in eastern Nevada,
whenever there was a particularly bad
place in the road, the stage driver
used to reach into the front boot and
yank out a sack of paper mail.
This ;
Hung under the wheel, helped out
many a bad place; as for the mail and
the sack, there it lay, it had fulfilled
an important mission, and no further
attention was paid to it After two or
three freighters and stages had passed
that way, it would have been difficult
to make out the superscription on the
As Seen On Hie Wharf.
To an impartial observer there was
much of interest in the 71' members
of the Emma Jucli opera" company
that came up on the Columbia. It
was a good example of the different
workings of nature. Here was a girl,
thin, hollow eyed, with sallow com
plexion, and very homely withont the
effect of a "make up." There was a
maiden, plump, bright- eyed, with
clear pink skin, and needing no paint
or wigs to make her presentable. One
looked as if she had come from a hard
working factory force; the other as if
she had blown on the stage, wafted by
a breeze from the country with all its
vigor. Another condition worth notic
ing is this. The male actors arc gen
erally a hale looking crowd. This is
largely due to the fact that they take
life easy, and seldom or never worry.
Freedom from worry is not so much
a characteristic of actresses and so
more worn faces are seen among them.

there so long and silently. "0, I was

Piscatorial ICgi-ialion Across
The River.
A bill supplemental to the one
creating a fish commission passed the
AVjishingtou state house of representa
tives during the week. It is intended
to protect salmon and other food
fishes, and was introduced by senator
Seaborg. of Pacific comity, who is him
self engaged in the fish canning busi
ness and may therefore be presumed
to know the needs of the trade The
bill prevents tho .taking of or fishing
for salmon in the Columbia river or
its tributaries, by any means, between
March 1 and April 10, and between
August 10 and September 10, and also
during the weekly close time, viz: Be
tween G v. sr. Saturday and 6 p. m.
Sunday. It is also made unlawful to
catch salmon within one mile below
any rock or other obstruction erected,
across any river or stream for the pur
pose of obtaining fish for propagation.
The close time in Gray's Harbor and
Shoalwater Bay is fixed at November
15 to December 15. It is made un
lawful for any net, trap, river wheel or
other appliance for catching fish to
extend more than one-third of the way
across any river or stream. Provision
is also made for fishwavs or ladders in
all dams, and stringent penalties are I
imposed upon all persons, polluting or
allowing water wherein fish propagate
to be polluted with any deleterious
substance, sawdust included, as well
as against the use of giant powder or
other explosives. The bill h:is already
passed the senate and now goes to the
The Lark of Exchanges a Pre.-ent Regret.
The dcartli of mail is seriously felt
in more than one newspaper office.
Early in January the San Francisco
papers ceased appearing: then the
eastern exchanges became a tiling of
the past This week the eastern Ore
gon and AVillamette valley paicts
failed to connect, and Tor the last two
or three days the Sound papers tire
the only ones that have pnt in an ap
pearance. "With the telegraph lines down, and
the mails few and far between, it
makes double work in every newspaper
otlice, for no matter how assiduously
the local field is covered there is al
ways a freshness and variety to the
piquant notes to be culled "from our
sprightly exchanges.
The local column ot a newspaper is
its spinal column. Nothing can take
its place, and on it depends the life of
any newspaper, large or small, but the
graceful dress and attractive embel
lishment can be secured best by judi
cious cullings from abroad
Then, too, one gets new ideas, or
has the old ideas, presented to him in
better shaie, in reading the columns
of our more or less esteemed contem
poraries. Every man in a newspaper office
if lie be a newspaper man puts his
best before the public in every issue,
and to be cut off from so general a
source of supply as is furnished by
the stale exchanges, works a privation
on all alike.
There isn't much originality about
any of us. Occasionally some one of
the fraternity says something that
sounds new, but generally it is more a
matter of repetition, than anything
But a pretty thought is like a pretty
woman, it looks best when it is best
dressed, and very often one cm get
hold of an idea or thought and by
arraying it in graceful garb, enhance its
appearance and elicit admiration
which would not be accorded less
elalioratc presentation.
