BROUGHT TO A CRISIS.
The American Revenue Outtor Seizes a
SKIllOl H . TROUBLE ANTICIPATED.
An Intimation that the American Prize
Crewi Will lie Overpowered and
Brought to Victoria.
Victoria, July 29.- The greatest ex
citement prevails among those interested
in the Beallng industry. The British
schooner Triumph arrived from Behring
sea this afternoon with news of the cap
ture by the American cutter of the
British schooner Black Diamond in
Behring sea. The Triumph entered
Behring sea July 11; on the 13th it was
sighted by the revenue cutter Rush,
whose captain boarded and informed
Captain McLean he had orders to seize
any schooners found taking seals in Beh
ring sea. The Triumph, not having
taken any, was allowed to depart. The
commander of the Rush informed Cap
tain.McLean that two days previous, he
had captured the Black Diamond, with
130 skins. A prize crew was put aboard
her and she was sent to Ounalaska. The
Diamond is owned by Gmtnian & Frank,
of this city, and is valued at about $10,
000, The Triumph contridered it better
to leave for Victoria.
Sealers are fighting and trouble is an
ticipated. ' ine cutter 'only has crew
enough to put two or three aboard the
seized schooners leaviifg the captain of
the ehooier in change. Tlio schoouors
will be immediately re-siezedand headed
for Victoria, American prize crew and
all. Here they will be handed over to
the naval authorities to deal with the
matter. Will have further particulars
tomorrow. , ,
The Triumph has 800 skins. The
news of the capture has caused great ex
citemeiit, and further news is anxiously
looked for. Some of the vessels have
tough crews aboard, and trouble is al
most ceitain. 1
Special Kates on Wheat.
San 1'kancisco, July 28. lhe new
chairman of the Transcontinental Asso
ciation yesterday telegraphed the gen
eral freight agent of the Union Pacific,
in this city that a special rate on east
bound carload shipments of wheat is to
be made similar to the rate on barley
This means.60 cents per 100 pounds to
the Missouri rivr, 02)2 cents to St.
Louis, C5 cents to Chicago, and 69)2
to Cincinnati. It is the first low rate
ever made on California wheat to east
ern points, and has been brought about,
it is said, at the special request of east
ern millers. They have recognized the
excellent quality of Pacific coost wheat,
but the freight rates haye operated
against their milling it to advantage.
The talk on the street now is that the
Southern Pacific will accept no compro
mise on the Canadian competition ques
tion, and as a natural sequence a rate
war ia a fruitlul topic of discussion.
O. dc C. Train Wrecked.
Albany, Or., July 28. The south
bound passenger train leaving Portland
this afternoon one hour late was derailed
at Lebanon Junction switch, one mile

pany has discharged 330 of its employes,
1C0 of whom are machinists, Another

l.asi uecemuer over ww men were

the discharged men will be taken back.
A Turife That Weigh a Ton.
San 1h.ncisco, July 27. -A turlle,
nine feet h-ng, four feet , broad, and
weighing 2000 pounds, was captured
yestenhiy off Pigeon Point, by a fisher
man. He pursued it from sunrise till
noon and attempted to land it with one
boat, widen was nearly swamped. It
finally required two boats and the assis
tance of eight fishermen to take the
prisoner to the wharf. It is said this is
the largest turtle ever caught on or off
this coast. t
San Francisco, July 24. A special
from Pittsbugh says : At the suggestion
of the surveyor of the port of PhHadel
phia, the Pittsburg appraisers have de1
cided to admit English wool at 10 cents
per pound, instead of "0 or GO cents,
according to classification, as heretofore
This will make English wool cheaper
than American, and raises fears that
the local wool industry will be ruined.

The Smallest Republic.
This is not San Marino, 1101 Andorra,
nor Moresnet, but the tiny republic of
Goust, in the Pyrenees, which contains
less than one hundred inhabitants, all
of whom are romanists.
The sole occupation of these people is
the weaving of wool and silk. Their
government consists of an assembly of
old men, calied the council. They pay
no taxes or imposts of any kind, and
therefore have need of no collectors.
They have neither mayor, priest nor
physician. They baptize their children,
bury their dead and perform their mar
riage ceremonies all beyond the boun
daries of the town, or in the neighbor
ing villagejof Laruns. If any one wishes
to spouse a wife he must go away from
home to find her.
Among the peaceful residents of this
microscopic republic are several centen
arians. No one is really poor, and none
is rich. The language which they speak
is a mixture of French and Spanish, and
their numbers, manners and customs
have remained unchanged for several

A Cod Bank Discovered off the Mouth of
OCR III V Kits TO BK RESTOCKED.
Arrival of Members of the Govern men
Fish Commission Their Plans for
Oiegon and California.
Washington,' July 26. The fish com
mission has been advised of reports of
the discovery of a cod bank, on the Pa;
cific coast, eight miles offNestucca, Oi
sixty-five miles south of the Columbi
river. The same advices state that true
cod haye never before been found south
of Puget sound.
Contrary to this, Acting Commissioner
Rathburn savs that true cod are reported
a9 far south as the Farrallone islands
the fishing grounds of San Francisco
but have not been found south of Puget
sound in sufficient quantities for com
the fish commission.
San Francisco, July 26. United
States Fish Commissoner McDonald
and Assistant Commissioner O'Connor
arrived today from the east on a tour of
the various coast fisheries. It is the
first time the commission has eyer been
west of Denver.
The commissioner says he proposes to
restock the Columbia river again, and
the Sacramento river, California, witfi
salmon, so that in five years the catch
-will bo as great as iorineriy.
The commissioner and assistant leave
for the Baird station Tuesday next
They will there make some improve
ments, for which congress has appropri
ated $4000, and will then proceed to
Oregon and Washington.
Commissioner McDonald, in an inter
yiew this evening, says : "It is my firm
belief that the supply of salmon can be
increased again, so .that in five years
there will be just as many and the catch
will be just as great as formerly. The
conditions must; however, be as favor
able as they once were. What we want
now is the complete co-operation of the
states through their lish commissions,
as far as possible, to keep the rivers pure
and stock them with more fry. That is
all that is necessary. Once it was
thought that the salmon supply of the
Columbia and Sacramento would never
give out. Now Pacific coast people are
getting a vast annual pack from Alaska
and are saving the same thing of hsh
there. Probabiy they are nearly right
about that, but at any rate we want to
stock up, not only these two great riyers
but the Clackamas, Santiam, Pitt, and
other rivers. The distinct work now is
to extend the artificial production of
salmon. We have one station now on
the McCloud river and another on the
Clackamas that together last year pro
duced about 11,000,000 salmon eggs
The idea now is to enlarge these hatch'
eries so as to net a erreater supply. Sal
mon is to you what shad is to the East.
The shad supply there ran low in 1880.
and the commission began stocking
streams with eegs. In 1883 the catch
was increased over that of the year 1880
by $750,000 worth of shad. This shows
what can be done. One thing I would
like to emphasize, the value and perma
nence of the results of fish culture will
depend essentially on the regulation and
protection of the fisheries by state laws.
Tf the fish are not permitted to return to
tbeir spawning grounds, or it the condi
tions are unfavorable for spawning, the
work will be retarded."

No More Revenue Collectors.
A Portland man has received a letter
from Washington which throws some
light on what President Harrison will
say in his message to congress on
the question of taxes. The writer, who
is an Indiana congressman, called at the
White House to urge the appointment
of a friend to be a collector of internal
"I would gladly appoint your friend,"
said the President, "but he would not
hold the place very long."
"Why not?" asked the congressman.
"There will be no internal revenue
collectors after a few months. Their
duties will be so lessened that it will bi
no longer necessary to maintain the
office. Hereafter, the United States
marshals will do all the collecting there
is to be done."
The letter concludes as follows:
'From the conyersation with the Presi
dent I inferred that he will recommend
the removal ot the internal revenue tax
on whisky and tobaccp, the collection of
which is the principal duty of revenue
collectors. Both branches of congress
being Republican, the President's re
commendation will be speedily acted
