Supposed to Have Been Set
On Fire by Strikers.
MILITIA IS ORDERED OUT
The Salem Companies Are Held in
Astoria, Or., June 9. The cannery
and other buildings of the North
Shore Fucking Company, belonging
to George & barker, of this city, nnd
situated across from Astoria, on the
Washington side or the river, burned
last night. There was no means of
communication across the river. It
fs Impossible to learn the cause of the
Are or any other particulars, but It Is
generally supposed, the buildings were
set on lire by strikers out of revenge
for the operation of Gcorgo& Barker's
cannery up tho river at Eureka.
Thnro has been no chango in the
strike situation, although It Is ru
mored that one of tho canneries, not a
member of thcCnnncrymen's Associa
tion, will commence receiving tomor
row, under some arrangement with
the fishermen to take llsh i(t & cents
per pound aud pay for the same in the
canned product. Tho truth of tho re
port, as far as the fishermen aro con
cerned, cannot be learned, as the ofli
ccrsor tho union will give no dcilnlto
Information concerning the majter.
It Is also understood that Samuel
Elmore .will undcrtako to commence
operations at his cannery hero with
fish brought from tho fishing grounds
ln Baker's bay."
Thcro is much complaint among tho
people on account of what they deem
to bo the Indifference of tho authori
ties, but Judgo Gray, of tho county
court, says that such complaints are
not well founded nnd are unjust, as
ho Is certain SherllT Haro would take
prompt steps to suppress any over act
of violence, and that until it has been
shown that tho sheriff is powerless to
deal' with tho situation, thcro Is no
occasion for uneasiness or ground for
a cull upon tho governor for tho aid of
In tho meantime, business of all
kinds remains absolutely prostrated,
and there Is a growing feeling of ap
prehension that serious troublo is Im
minent, and lives might be sacrificed
and great damage dono 10 property
before It will be demonstrated, under
Judge Gray's construction, that tho
sheriff was powerless to afford proper
protection for thocummunlty.
It Is reported that Gus Norburg,
foreman of tho 'Fishermen's Tacking
company, was seen to leavo tho can
nery in n small boat this afternoon on
some errand, up the river, has met
with some accident, as tho oars
which ho is known to, have had with
him were found floating down tho
river Just before dark, and up to' a
late hour tonight ho had not returned.

The situation down the river Isstlll
serious, and has lost nothing of Its
gravity' In the last few day. 'it Is
currently reported and very generally
believed that a local gun aud aifj mu
nition dcalcr Is making dally shlp

everyone familiar with tho facts
knows that the fishermen are already
armed to tho teeth. 7
There were 300 armed men sent up
to Cook's cannory to prevent Hablng
last week, a number equal Ur tho
available forces of the First rcglniont,
and In Astoria there nro perhaps 1,000
strikers, aud twlco as many sympath
izers, who would take the part off the
strikers in case of an outbreak.
Tho question of calling on tho
National Guard Is a complex nnd
dlfllcult one to solve, but enough iius
been dono by tho authorities so far
to glvo tho assuracco that as soonas
abosultely necessary tho regiment
will bo ordered to go. '

Reply From State Treasurer
CLAIM CREDIT NOT GIVEN
Because Chocks Are Received Alter
Tin: Journal of Saturday printed
the charge that the stato treasury
was not ' crediting remittances on
county tuxes for from one to thrto
days after their receipt.
Mil. MCTSUUAN'B BTATEMF.NT.
In tho "otrtcliil organ" Mr. Metschan
makes this statement in reply:
"Tho facts briefly stated are: In
payment of tho state taxes of 180.",
Mr. Jap Mtnto 1ms mado five remit
tances by mall, transmitting checks
on local banks. Ills remittance of
Saturday, March 28, was -received
after banking hours on tho samo day;
tho collection could not bo mado until
tho following Monday, March 30, and
Immediately, upon collection or tho
amount, my olllclnl receipt wns issued
ror tho samo. Tho samo condition
exists In regard to the remittance of
April 4, for which my otllcial receipt
was Issued April 0. Tho rcmlttnnco
of April 27, being received within
banking hours, was credited on tho
sumo day, and not on thq 20th us
erroneously stated. Tho rcmlttnnco
of April 30, was credited on tho day
of Its receipt In this ofllco,to-wlt,May
1. Tho remittance of May 20, was
rccolvcd at tho treasury department
on Saturday, tho 30th Inst., tho samo
being Decoration day a legal holiday.
Sunday Intervened; followed by elec
tion day, another legal holiday, and
tho rccolpt could could not bo Issued
until Tuesday, Juno 2. Other than by
publication of tho article roforrcd to I
am not aware or any squabble existing
between tho stato and tho treasurer
or Marlon county, having nover been
notified by him that ho has ques
tioned my statement of Interest due,
and In caso an error had existed it
could easily ha'vo been corrected had
ho called for a correction thereof. An
olllclal letter, giving a statement of
tho account between tho county and
tho state, wus forwarded to Mr, Mlnto
under date of Juno 2d. On tho 5th,
Inst., tho editor of tho paper referred
to, armed with said letter, called at
my ofllce und-deslrcd an explanation.
This wns chcorfully given to him, as
It would havo been to tho county
treasurer himself had ho requested It.
Notwithstanding, however, that tho
editor's attention was drawn to the
fact that Sundays Intervened In al
most ovory Instance whero tho rccolpt
was not Issued on the day remittances
wero received at this olllco no men.
tlou was made thereof. I am, there
fore, convinced that an attempt was
made to distort tho facts In tho case.
I would say furthor that In no In
stance are olllclnl receipts issued until
collection of remittances have been
made, or upon payment of tho amount
in United Stutes gold coin, as pro
vided by tho laws of this state."
WHAT AHB THK FACTS?
This remittances from tho treasurer
of Marlon county ubovo referred to
nro received each day at 3 o'clock us
tho capltol mall currier tells us, ut tho
state treasury. As theso checks aro
Highest of all In teaveaing Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report
on tho llrst National bank, of Salem,
if there wcro any doubt about their
being good as gold, tho stato treasurer
could telephone tho bank In a moment
and ascertain. Tho city banking
houses do not regulate the operation
of the stnte treasury. The argument
of the state treasurer, that tho chocks
are received artcr banking hours, will
not hold out. Tho state treasury Is
open until 5 p. in. each day, and a re
mittance on account of taxes to Btqp
interest should be cntorcd as a credit
tho day It Is rccolvcd, and interest
stopped In lavor or tho county Just
the same as a payment on a note.
THR KULK OF HANKS
in crediting such remittances is, that
It tho check is apparently good, It Is
ondorscd and credited, ir within 48
hours it Is round to bo not good, It is
returned, and the credit Is cancelled.
But no bank waits one to four days,
boforo crediting a rcmltanco against
in Interest-bearing account.
Treasurer Mlnto was seen today by
a Journal writer and says ho will
proparo n reply to tho Stnto Treasurer.
Ho will not pay tho Interest that. Is
charged for time between thu receipt
or his remittance and the date of
tho credits. Tho treasurer's letter
will-show, ir ho will allow It to bo
published Just how tho credits tiro
given and tho difference In Interest
that the county has to pay. It Is
purely a question of business und
facts and nut a matter of u personal
character so far as. The Journal s
concerned. If tho treasurer Is right
It can bo easily shown by tho post
marks on tho letters and tho date of
Treasurer Mluto's letters.
