known as the six -spotted nute. Some

John McLaughlin, foreman of the
Providence mine at Nevada City, Cal
beat Charles Knnge over the head with
a two-pound weight, and fractured his
skull. This enraged the miners, and
after McLaughlin was released by the
court on a bail of 15,000 he had to be es
corted by officials to his hotel, a crowd
following and shouting to " hang him."
If there had been a leader among these
men, it is believed McLaughlin would
have been strung up.
Twenty-seven canneries arc packing
salmon on theFraser river this year,
and 1,325 boats are at work. Sockeye
salmon, which is the only variety packed
there in large quatitiea, are running now
in immense numbers, the average take
by steady fishermen being 1,U00 for
twelve hours. The run has never been
better than at present, and the canner
ies cannot get away with the quantity of
fish supplied them, though some of them
are packing 1,500 cases daily. Recently
hull were so plentiful that 5 cents each
was the price asked by many fishermen ;
but, owing to the great supply, numbers
were unable to sell. If the run contin
ues ten days longer, as it doubtless will,
the pack will aggregate fully '450,000
cases, the largest ever put up on the
Fraser river, while some canners expect
the pack to run over 500,000 cases.
Every packing establishment has made
preparations to pack to their full capac
ity, and will Jill every can.
The following item is from a recent
issue ofthe World's Columbian Illus
trated, the official organ of the exposi
tion; "Oregon has adopted a unique
and practical method of displaying the
woods produced in that State. At Jack
son Park there is a house constructed
entirely of Oregon woods. It is ten feet
square and nineteen feet high, and is
surmounted by an open cuiwla. The
body of the structure ie a yellow pine.
The roof is of red-cedar shingles, and ie
supported by four Doric columns. The
columns are of maple, and are very rich
ly carved. The roof of the cupola is
supported by four small Doric columns
of carved oak. The interior is finished
with panel work containing about all the
woods of the State, among which are
nianznnita, madrone, yew, laurel, myr
tle, ash, maple, oak, spruce, balm, iir,
sugar pine, bird's-eye pine, cherry, curly
maple and alder. The house forms the
Oregon pavilion in the forestry building."
Here is another high compliment in a
recent editorial correspundence to the
8t. Joseph (Mo.) Herald: "Adjoining
the exhibits of Missouri in both the hor
ticultural and agricultural buildings are
the displays of Oregon, the Legislature
of which State appropriated a scant JGO,
000 in all for the purpose of properly
representing the State's resources and
industries at the World's Fair. The con
trast between the two displaysissogreat
as to put all Missonrians to shame. In
the Oregon booth in the horticultural
building over sixty varieties of apples
re shown fresh and beautiful on plates,
while there are countless jars and boxes
of peaches, plums, prunes, etc., so ar
ranged as to demand the attention of all
who pass. Visitors rush through the
dusty Missouri space to get into the Or
egon booth and admire the products of
the far Western State as arranged so
captivatingly. The same is true of the
agricultural exhibits. While the-Mis-eouri
pavilion is more favorably located
it does not command one visitor, while
dozens visit Oregon and inspect her
honest exhibits of grain and grasses and
the general product of the farm, Her
wheat is shown in two-bushel sacks, and
all who wish to examine it have only to
delve into the sacks and try a handful."

Further instructions in regard to the
acceptance of Chinese certificates have
been issued to the. Collector of the port
of New York. The order calls for the
detention of Chinese upon the vessels
bringing them to this country until the
Consular certificates are fully investi
gated and until the bearers are fully
identified ; in fact, until there is not the
slightest doubt as to their right to enter
tne united states.
That a desperate fight is to be made
to repeal the Geary Chinese exclnsion
act during the extra or regular session of
Congress is no longer doubted by those
interested in Washington. While Rep
resentative Geary claims to have learned
nothing definite as to the administra
