Scarcity of Salmon In Rlvsrs Attrib
uted to Killing of SeaUona.
Astoria, Although the slaughter of
wealiona has beea carried on systemati
cally for some years and has received
the' sanction ef the state authorities as
being a means of getting rid of one of
the greatest natural enemies to the
salmon, there Is a well-defined oppo
sition to the practice being continued
growing among some of those who have
Been directly interested in the fishing
industry for several years.
They assert that while the seallons
xist on salmon and destroy many of
those Ask, they also drive the fish into
the river, and that otherwise the salmon
will not enter fresh water until they are
-ripe and ready to spawn, To substan
tiate their contention these men say
that a similar ease occurred In Norway
some years ago. There the government
took up the work of destroying certain
natural enemies of the salmon and the
-result was that the fish stopped entering
-the rivers ia schools or "runs," but
straggled ia much as they have dona In
the Columbia this season.
This year there were hundreds' of sea
llons killed pfl thenuath of the Colum
bia and many more were frightened
sway, and the runs .of salmon have been
small. At Tillamook and Nehalem there
-were large numbers of sealions and more
7hinook salmon were caught there than
over before.

contention that the consumer is, under
the food and drug act, sautled to know
the character of the product he buys,
ths board of food and drug inspection
of the department of agrioulture today
issued a decision declaring that a bever
age cannot be labeled wine unless it is
made from "the normal alcoholic fer
mentation of juice of sound, ripe grapes
without addition or abstrsctiong either
prior or subsequent to fermentation."
The term "wine" can only be used
for a beverage made from the mare of
grapes if .the beverage is labeled "imi
tation." A fermented beverage pre
pared from grape "most" by, the ad
dition of sugar may be termed "sugar
wine," according to the board's de
cision. . The addition of watsr to the
grape "must" will also require further
characterization than the term "wine."

Washington, Aug. 36. The requests
of maauf astnrera of bleaehed flour that
no further seiBurea of bleached flour be
made until a test case should have beea
decided; were refused today, following
a conference between Wade BL- Ellis,
acting attorney-general, and Dr. H. P.
Dunlsp, of the pure food board of the
agricultural departmeat.
The food ezperta of tha, department
some time ago decided that oleaehed
flour was In violation of tha pure-food
laws, not so much oa the ground of im -purity
but because of alleged misbrand
ing, and the areata of the department
were instructed to maks seisures of
flour. Counsel for the millers have
been suing to have the seisures discon
tinued until a test case could be de
cided. . Today it waa determined that
the seizure would be eoatiaued without
regard te a teat case.
It ia sot known what percentage of

Railroads May Bo Unable to Handle
Immense Buslnsss.
Washington, Aug. 81. -A heavier
business than has ever been known ha
a single year ia looked for by Chairman
Knapp of ths Interstate Commerce
commission for American railroads
during the present fiscal year.
The serious sltustraa anticipated, not
only by Judge Knapp, but by other offi
cials of tha commission, and by ops rat
ing railroad men generally, Is that
there may be a shortage of cars. The
crop prospects are considered so bright
that the transportation sompanles map
be taxed beyond their capacity to ban-
dls the freight.
According to the figures submitted
to the commission, the railroads havs
recovered from the low business pres
sor of a year and s half ago, and are
now handling almost as much traffic aa
they did in the rush months of 1907,
which was the banner year la Ameri
