entire distance of 150 miles, with no
company except his dog, and seems to
have patriotic pride In .the salmon

he has made down the river in about
five, years, and while he was a little
late In arriving, and Ib past the SO
mark, he still expects to take his net
out on the river.

Mr. J. W. Clemens, the Portland
agent of the Royal Insurance Co., Is
enjoying his annual encampment at
Gearhart. Mr. Clemens' tent possesses
all the desirable novelties of camp life,
together with the comforts of home.
Quite an addition to the tenting fra
ternity at Gearhart was made Satur
day and the width and length and
depth of their spreading city is now
considerable. The Verandas and parlors of Hotel
Gearhart are every evening filled with
people, each group of reporters pur

Mr. J. E. Hlggins Is a frequent vis

jection Mr. Hlggins has to Gearhart
is that it Isn't In Astoria.
Ju lglng from certain rumors some
misunderstanding relative tn the rates
at Hotel Gearhart must exist with
the public, which should be rectified.
This hotel, as Is well known, to Its
many patrons, Is one of the finest on
the coast, and conducted In a first
class manner at very reasonable rates.
For the benefit of those who have been
misled, It would be no more than cour
teous to say that the rates are from
$2.0) per day upwards. It has been
customary to make special rates for
those anxious to spend some time at
the beach, and undoubtedly Manager
Karmore will do his best In that re
spect this summer.
Mr. J. R. McCracken occasionally
