Salmon on tbc SacraneBto.
There are now about sixty-five boats
on the Sacramento river. The fisher
men report the run to be rather light
and tho boats do not average more
than four salmon each per day.
About a third of the boats ship their
fish to this market by steamer. Tho
fishermen say there are indications of
a large run of salmon and they are
makiug arrangements in accordance
with their predictions. The Black
Diamond and Martinez canneries will
require a large quantity of salmon if
the run proves to be what is expected.

A New Youk adventurer induced a
fortune-teller to "foretell' to a rich
widow that she would be married to a
young man whose description fitted
him exactly. By and by he came
along, and the widow, recognizing her
intended husband, married him. He
remained with her long enough to
borrow $3,000 and then skipped.
The London Gazelle has tendered
to Parnell an apology for its action in
republishing from day to day as they
came out tho charges made by the
Times that the Irish leader connived at

cepted the apology as satisfactory and

Drscussnca the repeal o the robber
indebtedness clause, the Pendleton
East Orcgonian says:
"We are well aware the deduction Tor
indebtedness is a source of great
abase, and that the rich take advan
tage of it to escape taxation, and
therefore we are in favor of its repeal,
but not without giving debtors fair no
tice and opportunity to accommodate
themselves to the new law. For this
purpose we would allow deductions of
all indebtedness on notes and mortga
ges already contracted up till the time
they became due; also we would sug
gest deduction of only fifty per cent of
indebtedness the first year after the
law went into effect, and thereafter
none, except as above stated on obliga
tions not yet matured.
John Mum, ascientific man, who has
been making practical examinations in
Alaska and of the Behriug strait
and sea regions says, in relation to
the bridging ot Behring strait, which
has been generally ridiculed: "Sen
ator Stanford's girdle ot steel around
tlie earth via Behring sea is a per
fectly feasible scheme. Behriug sea
can be bridged. It is only thirty
miles across in the narrowest place,
and there arc three islands strung
along it This would divide the
bridge up into four divisions.
But, besides this the water is very
shallow. In many places it is not
naore than twenty feet deep. I under
take to say thnt if a man were strong
enough to take ono of California's
redwood trees in his hands, he would
put it down anywhere over the GOO
miles of Behring sea and yet have
103 feet of it left above the water.
This shows how easy, it would bo to
bridge the straits. Tho only trouble
would be from floating icebergs, but
that could be easily overcome by con
structing swinging bridges like they
have aeross the river at Chicago. In
this way the strait could be kept
clear all tho time, and trains could
run right along."
