The excitement, about the Canadian
fisheries give a hint as to the prospective
value of one of the undeveloped resources
of the northwest. The shore fishing of
the provinces, on the Atlantic side, is of
sufficient importance to bring the United
States and its neighbors to the vergo of a
quarrel, but it is a small matter compared I
with the opportunities open in the north
western waters on this side of the conti
nent. The mackerel fishing, which is the
present matter of dispute, is of no less im
portance thau the banks codtishing ; yet
the whole extent of the Newfoundland
banks is only about 70.000 square miles,
while in the Pacific and Okhotst we have
300,000 square miles, in Behring sea
almost as much more, and around the
Choumagin islands 80,000 ; altogether
nearly ten times the area of the Atlantic
banks. The total money value per an
num of the fisheries on the banks and off
the east coast of the British North Ameri
can provinces is in the neighborhood of
(25,000,000, which embraces the catch of
the vessels of all nations resorting there.
When the fisheries of the north Pacific
are developed to anything like the extent
of those of the north Atlantic they will
form one of the great industries of this
coast.—San Francisco Call.
EMPRESS OF LOTA.
A Rich Woman Who 1» a Potentate In the
Heart of a Free Republic.
I notice an interesting paragraph in
an English journal which informs 11»
that a Leith firm has just completed a
handsome screw steam launch, which
has beeu built to the order of Mrs.
Couteno, a South American lady, who
is reported to be the richest woman in
the world. The launch, which is built
of steel, is twenty-tive feet in length,
and is to be employed as a tender to
her large yacht. (The large yacht is
engaged at present in the unpretend
ing but protitable trade of carrying
coal from Lota to Valparaiso.) It is
elaborately fitted up in polished nia-
hnganv and is to be dispatched forthwith
by'one of the mail steamers from Liv
erpool for conveyance to Chili.
B sides being the richest lady in t ie
world, she also enjoys the singular
privilege of being Empress over a tract
of territory called Lota, which lies
some two or three hundred miles south
of the port. It may appear strange to
speak of an Empress in the heart of a
free republic, but nevertheless the
fact exists, and so absolute are her
