Klnioio, Sanborn &. Co.'u fall salmon
circular, just issued, says : "At Shoal
water Hay and Cray's. Jlarbor fish are
scarce. At l'uget Sound they were run
ning very slack until recently, when they
took a spurt and came in in fairly largo
nuiintitics. If dry weather continues,
the l'uget Sound cannerswill have a fair
pack, but even then it will bo nothing
like hist year's output. If tho rains
come on early, the pack will dwindle
down to very small proportions indeed.
All tho rivers south of tho Columbia are
liaving light runs, which improved Homo
w hat during the late rainy weather. Ac
cording to tho latest reports Gray's Har
bor has 2,000 cases, Shoalwater Hay 1,200
cases and Tillamook 1,500 cases. Tho
omility of fall fish is about tho sanio as
that, of previous years. At Siuslaw and
the Unipqua there has been a percepti
ble increase in size. No dellnite reports
are yet at hand from Coiiuille or Hoguo
rivers. Tho fall fishing in the Columbia
is fairly successful. Only two canneries
are running. Tho fish in taker's Hay
for tho last few days have done well, and
tho quantity of lish coining in, if they
ran in a email estuary, would give pros
pects of a largo pack. They are very
much scattered, however, in the Colum
bia. The humpback variety are coming
in very large, many of them weighing
thirty pounds. The price ruling for fall
salmon this year is extremely poor, ow
ing to the great quantities of Alaska fish
now offered at 1.07.'sj delivered in New
York. Fall fish will bring about $1.17
delivered in Eastern States."

July 21 last David A. Sanders of Ply

did not receive the benefit of President
Harrison's amnesty proclamation, and
for that reason his unlawful relations did
not cease until a few davs after the time
mentioned by the proclamation as the
limit, .November, 18!H). He says he has
not violated any law of the country ex
cept that relating to cohabitation; that
tie lias not violated this Jaw for more
than two and one-half years. President
Cleveland is in doubt whether he can
properly grant the pardon, and before
acting on it has referred it back to the
Attorney-General for an opinion.
In regard to tho account of the inter
view Ix tween Secretary Gresham and
the Chinese Minister, in which Secre
tary Gresham is said to have told the
Chinese Minister that the administra
tion did not intend to enforce the exclu
sion law, it is stated at the State Depart
ment that, whatever the views of the
President and Secretary Gresham might
le in the matter, they would not give
assurance to the Chinese government
Unit a law would not Ik: enforced win e
it remained on the statute books, und
that therefore the statement attributed to
Secretary Gresham was inaccurate. It
is understood that Mr. Gresham merelv
assured the Minister of the good will of
the t inted States toward the Chinese
government and hoped the question of
exclusion would lie arranged in a satis
factory manner, so that the amicable re
lations between the two governments
would not le disturbed.
Representative Oates of Alabama has
introduced a bill to annex Utah to Ne
vada. Mr. Oates said: "I have been
thinking over this question a long time,
and I believe I have found the true solu
tion of a vexing question. The plan is
w holly within the power of Congress to
carry out. There is nothing in the con
stitution to prevent it. There is no way
to destroy tho State. That cannot be
lone, and yet the future of Nevada is a
serious question. Its population de
creased from 70.000 in 1880 to 42,000 in
1800 in round numbers, and there is no
prospect of its recovering any part of
what it has lost. On the other hand, if
the silver-mining industry be further di
minished, there will not tie 20,000 people
in the State in five years, but it has two
Senators and a Representative in Con
gress. Utah, just adjoining, has 240,000
population, and is not represented at all
except by a Delegate with no vote. It
is not right that Nevada should have
such power in Congress, nor is it fair
that we phould keep Utah out of the
Union. The passage of this bill will
solve the question what to do with Utah
and at the same time put life and
strength into the veins of a decaying
State.'J The bill was referred to "the
Committee on Territories.
In reply to a Senate resolution of Sep
tember 7, directing the Secretary of the
Treasury to inform that Iwdv "to what
extent the appropriations heretofore
made for the enforcement of the Chinese
exclusion act have been expended and
what portions are now available, and
whether in his opinion it is necessary
that a further appropriation be made by
Congress in order to carry out the law,
and if so, how much, the Secretary has
sent his reply, inclosing a statement
showing the appropriations and expend
itures since 1880. It was shown that the
balance available the 7th instant for the
current year amounted to $63,502, which
includes the unexpended balance of the
appropriation for the last fiscal vear,
$20,(I2. It is estimated that $38,000
will be required to pay the salaries and
necessary expenses of' the officers regu
larly employed to enforce the exclusion
act for the remainder of the current
year, leaving an estimated balance avail
able for the deportation of Chinese found
to be unlawfully in the United States of
$25,502. It appears by the census report
of 1890 that the Chinese population of
the United States in that year was 106,
688. Of this number 95,477 were in the
Pacific States and Territories. The num
ber who registered under the act of Slav
5,1802, was 13,243, leaving 93,444 who
failed to avail themselves of the privi
leges of the act. Assuming that about
10 per cent of these would be entitled to
exemption, the Secretary finds there
would still remain about 85,000 liable to
deportation under the law. The lowest
cost for transporting Chinamen from San
Francisco to Hong Kong is S35 per cap
ita, and other expenses incident to ar
rest, trial and inland transportation
would also average, he says, not less
than $35 per capita. If, therefore, all of
those who did not register should be
transported to China, the cost involved
would aggregate in round numbers about
$6,000,000. This, the Secretary says, in
his opinion would be a moderate amount
to carry out the act. He was unable to
furnish an accurate estimate of the num
ber who might be deported during the
remainder of the current fiscal year, the
matter being largely dependent upon the
action of the courts. Assuming, how
ever, that the courts would be able to
dispose of 10,000 cases during such pe
riod, the amount required would not be
less than $700,000. The Secretary ex
presses no opinions, and makes ao recommendations.

We have been shown by Mr. and Mrs.

relic of the civil war in the shape of a
half gallon jar of peach preserves which
were made in 1802. The relic was given
to Mr. and Mrs. Graves. Oct. 27. by
Mrs. Wah Roberts, of Rocheport, and
its history is as follows: In lbtil John
Roberts joined the Confederate army
along with Ben, Sam and Jack Ray.
brothers of Mrs. Roberts. In 18H2 this
lady and her sister-in-law. Mrs. John
Roberts, were together putting up pre
serves, jellies, etc. They filled some jars
which they agreed not to open until their
brothers and husbands should return
safe from the war.
It turned out that John Roberts was
killed, and as they did not all come back,
the ladies did not open their preserves.
Time rolled on. Mrs. John Rolnrts moved
to California, where she married again
and became the mother of several chil
dren and is now dead. Recently Mrs.
Wash Roberts concluded she would send
some of these preserves to these children,
and also to give some to her friends, the
Graveses. The preserves are in first
class condition, of excellent tiavor, and
would no doubt keep uuuther quarter of
a century. Wash Roberta has been for
many years a popular citizen of Roche

Game Warden Taylor came in recently
from the lower country, where he has
been kept busy driving the Indiana out
of that section. Mr. Taylor reports that
the Utes have been playing sad havoc
with the game, slaughtering wherever
they could. He was very indignant
over it, and from his version of the mat
ter he has good reason to be. He states
that from the Iron springs divide to Yel
low creek it is impossible to travel a
hundred yards without finding the bod
ies of deer lying around, and in most
cases nothing but the hides and braius
have been taken, the brains being used
by the Indians in the process of tanning
On Blue mountain and in the Lilly park
sections the rotting carcasses can be
seen, while on Snake river they are so
thick as to absolutely poison the air.
Warden Taylor estimates that since
the deer began to travel down the Utes
have killed between 5,000 and 6,000 of
them, and what makes matters worse
the major portion of them are does and
fawns, the bucks always remaining in
the upper country till later in the fall.
The Highest Railway In Europe.
The oieuing of a new Alpine railway
the Brienzer Rothhornbahn is an
nounced. It is the highest railway in
the Alps and commands magnificent
views. It is 2,351 meters (7,8Jrt feet)
high at the summit level, and ascends
1,682 meters (5,600 feet), or sixty-seven
meters (223 feet) higher than the Pilatus
railway. The journey occupies an hour
and a half. The gauge is 0.8 meter
The line is a pure rack and pinion rail
way on the Abt system, and is similar
in construction to the Moute Generoso
1 he steepest gradient is one in tour-
that is, less than the maximum Pilatus
ascent. The railway has been built in a
remarkably short space of time; it was
begun so recently as the 1st of October,
1890. No fewer than ten tunnels were
bored; numerous streamlets were
bridged and heavy stone dams had to
be erected. Iron.
' Warning Against Antipyrine.
Let me say something about the indis
criminate use of antipyrine. 1 think it
is villainous. Its use should be restricted
like laudanum and morphine, and used
only upon a physician's prescription. Peo
ple use it carelessly, not knowing that
it is a heart depressant and cumulative
in its action. Many persons come to me
and say that they have been using ten
grains every three or four hours, and
without any idea of the harm it does. 1
came across two or three deaths last year
directly due to its use. Too much cannot
be said about the danger from its indis
criminate use. Interview in Philadel
