Fishing Industries.
Measure! of Common Intercut to lie
Recommended to the Two Legisla
tures for lnactineiit.
An unanimous agreement has been
enchco! by' the joint legislative com
mittees of Oregon and Washington
touching fishing industries of mutual
interest to both states. They formu
lated resolutions making such recom
mendations as will, it is thought, ob
viate differences between the two states
arising fiom conflicting laws.
Among the points of agreement
reached may be mentioned the follow
ing: Changes relativo to the close season
for salmon-fishing on the Columbia
river; the Sunday close law is to be
done away with; the Washington law
is to be made to conform with the Ore
gon law regulaMng the fall salmon close
season; the gill-net license is to be left
at $2.50, with the addition of an indi
vidual license fee of $1 each for all
fishermen, as at present provided for in
the Oregon law; the set-net license
fee is to he raised in both states from
$1 to $2.50; concurrent laws relative to
sturgeon lines on the Columbia river
are to be enacted: the appointment of
a joint commission to establish the
proper boundary lnes is to be asked.
The agreements were reached at Ta
coma Saturday. The Oregon commis
sion consisted of Fish Commissioner
MeGuiro, Senators Koed and Daly, and
Representatives Myers, Curtis and Far
rell. That of Washington comprised
Fish Commissioner Little, Senators
Megler and MoReavy, and Representa
tives Colwell, Sims and Daniels.
It was concluded to recommend the
close-season proposition should begin
at noon, March 1, and close at noun,
April 15. It was recommended to
make the Washington fall season con
current with that of Oregon from
August 10 to September 10.
No settlement was arrived at on the
boundarv-line question. Both states
will probably appoint two citizens
each, who will select n engineer, con
sider the matter, and submit drawings
and profiles at the net biennial session
in each state.
American-Canadian Treaty.
Washington, Feb. 1. Prospects for
an agreement between the British and
American joint high commission on
questions affecting Canada and the
Unitod States have greatly improved
within the last week, and it is ex
pxected now that aoomplete agreement
on all points will be reached early in
Reciprocity has been the stumbling
block in the way of the commission.
The principal point of friction was in
regard to the duty on lumber imposed
under the Dingley law. Canadians
demanded concessions on this that the
American commissioners were not at
first willing to make.
This question has not yet boon Bet
tied, but it is understood that both
sides are more conciliatory, each being
anxious that the entire negotiations
should not fail on account of one point
of agreement.
New Railroad to the Yukon.
New York, Feb. 1. A dispatch to
the Heiald from Washington says:

This oompany is to bo capitalized at
$30,000,000. It is to have the right to
bond and mortgage the line at not to
exceed $30,000 per mile, but this mort
gage is to be subsequent to the claim
of the United States for the $16,000
per mile advanced by the government.
Cruelty to Spanlnh Prisoner!.
New York, Feb. 1. A dispatch to
the Herald from Manila says: The
Spanish civil prisoners have not yet

hunger and dishonor come from the
provinces. Young Spanish girls are
forced to live in open with low born
natives. Their parents, being power
less, appealed to Agninaldo. His reply
was a letter from dishonored child
exacted after God knows what suffer
ing saying she is happy and content
ed. Ladies have suffered dishonor to
save their husbands from cruel treat
ment. Five priests have died in one
province from hunger and cruelty, al
though $00,003 had been sent by the
corporation foi their maintenance. Ap

nation, in the name ol ucxl, to stop the

Washington, Jan. 81. The house to
day continued the consideration of the

setts. Little piogress was made with
the army bill, the only amendment
adopted being that to give veterinar
ians in cavalry regiments the rank,
pay anil allowance of second l'outen

gan was chiefly devoted to a continua
tion of the debate on the advisability
of retaining the Philippines. -
Tho diplomatic and consular appro
priation bill, carrying $1,500,000, was
passed by the senate.
The salaries of secretaries of legation

the surgeon-general of the army to
furnish information as to the percent
age of our soldiers in the Philippines,
who are sick and have been sick, and
the number of deaths in our army by
reason of the sickness caiiBed by the 1
climate. Mason prefaced the resolu
tion with the statement that reports
had been received that "of late years
as high as 50 per cent of the soldiers
unaccustomed to the climate (of the
Philippines) havo died by reason of the
Baid climate."
The Necessary Penalty I Dismissal
From the Aruiy.
Washington, Jan. 81. General Ea
gan, commissary-general of subsist- ,
ence, has been found guilty of the
charges of conduct unbecoming an offi
cer and a gentleman, and of conduct to
the prejudice of good order and disci-
pline, and of the specifications thereto, "'
and has been sentenced to dismissal
from the United States army; but with -a
recommendation from the court for,
the exercise of executive clemency.,.
Under the regulations, the court, hav
ing reached the conclusion that the ac
cused was guilty, had no choice hi
selecting a penalty, the regulations
prescribing absolutely that one punsish- '
merit . dismissal for the offense.
Therefore, the only hope for General
Eagan is in the direction of com m nuta
tion, mitigation or disapproval by the
Payment of the Cubair Army.
Havana, Jan. 81. Senor Fredrico'
Mora, the civil governor of Havana, in .
an interview declared that the question
of the payment of the Cuban anny was
of much greater importance than the
Washington government seems to real
ize. He said of the Cubans were to'
collect the customs of the islands,
which are their property, their first ac
tion would be to meet Cuba's sacred
obligation to the army by payment in -full
to the soldiers. The customs ad
ministration being in the hands of the .
Americans, the Cubans make a simple
business proposition to the United
States government that it , shall ad
vance money to pay the troops, hold
ing the customs as security.
