The new fish cannery at Village
Point, Lunitui island, is now completed
and all ready fir-r business and it is ex
pected by the proprietors that enough
fish will be running soon to allow them
to run at their full packing capacity.
They began operations in a small way
the first of the week. There are three
buildings erected of the following di
mensions, respectively: 60 x 140, 80 x
120 and 50 x 120, their full packing ca
pacity is 100 fish per hour. Four traps
have been driven in that vicinity and
purse seines will also be used. This is
regarded by many as one of the best
locations oil Puget Sound for a cannery
as the heavy run of sockeyes is at this
point on their way to the Frazer.
Messrs B. W. Huntoon, Thos. Hen
derson and C. X. Larrabee arrived on
the island, Monday, and put in their
time until Tuesday noon looking over
some of our fine ranches in the valley.
They expressed themselved as being
much pleased with their trip and were
astonished at seeing such fine farms
and improvements. Mr. Larrabee is
well known by all as the president of
the'Fairhaven Laud Co. and as one of
tl.e directors of the Great Northern R.
R. Mr. Henderson is well known as a
reliable and prominent real estate deal
er, of Fairhaven, and Mr. Huntoon is
a civil engineer whewe ability in his
line or'business has never been ques
tioned by anyone.
The damage done by the high tides
on the salmon traps located on the sal
mon banks, off the south side of San
Juan island is something terrific. The
lead of the Walker trap that had just
been supplied with web, was washed
away for almost a thousand feet, the
piles, to ail appearances being broken
off by ihe great weight of the water
thrown against them with the swift
current that at times for the past week
has run with the force of a six mile
race. This is not the only trap dam
aged, as they nearly all appear to be
more or less injured. The Piielps trap,
over which D. N. McMiilinand C. A.
Phelpsare at this writing litigating,
has been badly damaged, an is also the
Murray trap just driving and located
close io the Win Juan pass, the pot of
which was badly torn by the piles
washing out. To say the least, the out
look is discouraging.

Editor IsLANDER:-In youreditor
j ial article of last week entitled ''A little
local politics" in speaking of Judge
Thacker's and Mr. Blair's candidacy
for representative, you say "that it is to
be regretted that the friends of Mr.
Blair interfered in such u thoroughly
friendly and honorable contest, witli
the apparent purpose of prejudicing the
interests of Judge Thacker in his own
precinct by securing signatures to a pe
tition in support of his competitor. It
does'nt matter with whom the petition
originated. It was impolitic, unwise
and unfair." As you were aware that
the writer was one of Mr. Blairs
frieuds who originated this petition, it
would have been more honorable and
less cowardly to have mentioned my
name as one who was doing something
"impolitic, unwise and unfair" as every
Republican in tliis precinct and almost
every one in the county k?iovvs that I
helped to circulate this petition. Now
what is this petition which is so "im
politic, unwise and unfair." Common
decency and fa'rness and the Ameri
can's love of fair play would seem to
the writer that the petition itself is the
best evidence and that you should have
printed it and stated facts and left it to
your readers to judge as to its nature
without condemning a man before giv
ing him a hearing. Ho that your read
ers may know what a bold, bad man,
the writer is, according to your esti
mate, I will give you a copy of the pe
tition and some facts. The petition
reads as follows:
"Friday Harbor,Wash, June, 1896.—
To John L. Blair.—We the undersign
ed Republicans of Friday Harl»or pre
cinct, San Juan County, hereby ask
and request you to be a candidate for
representative before the County Re
publican Convention, and if you will
consent to be a candidate we hereby
pledge you our support at the primary,
and if nominated agree to both vote
and work for vour election in Novem
This petition was circulated first
some three weeks ago and only after
Judge Thacker had stated in our club
meeting June Ist that the Republican
party had honored him, and he had no
claim to be put on the ticket and would
not ask and neither expected to be on
the ticket, and Judge Thacker had also
told several that he would not be a can
didate for the position, and he had pre
viously solicited Mr. Blair to run. In
view of these facts Mr. Blair consented
to run, if his own precinct would en
dorse him by giving him a unanimous
delegation, and the writer and several
others circulated this petition, that you
in your wisdom term as "impolitic, un
wise and unfair" to se^ if the Republi
cans of this precinct wished to support
Mr. Blair. After some eight or ten had
signed it Judge Thacker called on Mr.
Blair to see if he knew the petition was
out, stating that he was going to be a
candidate himself and suggesting that
Mr. Blair run for treasurer, and when
Mr. Blair refused to run for. treasurer,
he suggested that they both announce
theuiselves through your valuable col
umns which Mr Blair consented to do.
That same day he came again to
Mr. Blair and told him that he under
stood that we were going to both pub
lish the petition and the names of the
signers, and objected to us printing it
claiming that if we did so that it would
hurt his cause in other precincts, and
at his earnest solicitation and also at
Mr. Blair's request we refrained trom
publishing either the petition or list of
names. The petition now contains a
large majority of the names of the Re
publicans of this precinct, several of
whom have sigued it since you issued
your edict that we are "impolitic, un
wise and unfair," Ever since we con
sented not to publish the petition or
list of names, the writer with some
others have been called all kinds of
names, some to vile to be printed, by
Judge Thacker's friends, in fact during
the heated campaign of two years ago
in which the writer took »n active part
as chairman of the Republican Central
Committee, the Populists and Demo
crats did not use me as discourteously
and as vile as some of the Republicans
have the past four weeks, and Repub
licans too that expect to be on the tick
et this fall. You no doubt have observed
that there haT been formed a Mc-
Graw club in King county with a cast
iron pledge to support McGraw for U.S.
Senator and 900 Republicans signed it.
You no doubt have also seen published
in the P.-I. a petition to R. B. Albert
son signed by some of the leading men
in Seattle asking him to run for Su
perior Judge. Both of these were done,
however, before they knew that your
valuable paper had decided that such
a course "was impolitic unwise and
unfair." Of course you are also aware
that before this petition was started
and since, that letters had been sent
confidentially and otherwise asking
support for Judge Thacker which in
your wisdom you no doubt would pro
claim eminently wise and fair, while
our open petition is "unfair" etc. As
the writer has seen some very honor
able men brought out for office in Seat
tle and other places by petition he
never knew before that it was "impo
litic, unwise and unfair." In fact I am
confident that the Republicans at the
primary in this precinct will give a
sufficient answer to the gratuitous un
called for insult that you have given
them in your editorial and will speak
with no uucertaiu sound and there
will be no straddle on the representa
tive question. When was it a part of
the Republican creed that editors
should be given entire control of the
actions of the members of the party,
and when did it become a part of the
Republican creed that an open, manly
course to aid a candidate should be
stigmatized by vile names, when was
this Kuklux method incorporated into
our party? Mr. Blair's friends have
pursued an open, fair method in his
candidacy, and have kept all other
questions out, have not tried to either
bring out candidates for other offices,
and have treated candidates for ail
offices in a fair and upright "dinner.
A d what hay * we got for it? Why, we
have been villified, abused and called
names that even your paper would not

print, just because we are for Mr.
Blair. We do not believe the Repub
licans of this precinct or of the county
will endorse such villianous methods,
and we are at lo^s to know why it is
done. Possibly you can inform your
readers what is Che scheme- that it is
supposed that this abuse that you ap
parently endorse is going to further,
for by so doing we might "catch on"
to the late Octol>er convention idea
that is supposed to help on the scheme.
Personally a word to The Islander.
While it was run by a Populist editor
who differed on every subject with the
writer, he never in his columns either
abused me or my business, but always
used me with courtesy as a gentleman, j
an.! land my business either directly
or indirectly'were always trejit'd far
bt-tter than since it became a Republi
can organ, and I cannot understand
why I am singled out for abuse. 1
neither want nor would not have any
office in the county and I want no cus
toms house appointment or postofflce,
and why I should be villifled by men
who are seeking offices at the hands of
the Republican party, and by your
valuable paper is past my comprehen
sion. And all the writer asks of the
Republicans of this county is a hear
ing and decent treatment which he
believes is a part of the Republican
creed and which he believes he is en
titled to. J. A. Gould.
As our readers will plainly see. the
above article calls for an answer which
we will give in our next issue but it
will be our aim as is always the case to
make it a geutlemanly, true and cour
Fhiimy Harbor, Wash, June 30: —
Editor Islanjjkr; Dear Sir:—On
reading the article in your last issue,
"A Little Local Politics," I was much
surprised at the position you take in
that article. I will quote some of the
article: "And it is to be regretted that
the friends of Mr. Blair interfered in
such a thoroughly friendly and honor
able contest with the apparent purpose
of prejudicing the interests of Judge
Thacker in his own precinct by secur
ing signatures to a petition in support
of his competitor." Now is it not a
fact that when that petition was pre
sented to you in your office by myself
and others that you said you would
heartily indorse Mr. Blair and on be
ing asked to sign it you said that you
would rather not as a matter of busi
ness, but if we insisted on your signing
you would do bo. when I told the party
with me at that time if your objections
to signing were from a business stand
point it was a sufficient excuse and we
left your office not thinking that in
your next issue you would class us and
our petition as "impolitic unwise and
unfair." You are aware that that
petition was circulated by quite a num
ber of the citizens of Friday Harbor
precinct besides the Carter Bros, and
J. A. Gould.
Now, Mr. Editor, I don't believe Mr.
Blair or any of his friends ever came
into your office and willfully, know
ingly and purposely insulted you as
they of the other side of this controver
sy have done repeatedly. If they, or
any of them have, I hope you will pub
lish their names and remarks, believ
ing the friends of Mr. Blair are entitled
to a hearing before being condemned,
and that readers of your valuable paper
may know that the oetition in ques
tion was written and signed by quite
a number of persons before the agree
ment between Judge Thacker and Mr.
Blair was sealed that the petition was
not to be published. Now if Judge
Thacker or his friends circulated letttrs
claiming that such was not a fact they
are mistaken or else doing what is un
fair and untrue. Hoping that I have
not taken too much of your time or
space in your valuable paper I am for
Blair and fair play first last and all
the time. Respectfully, C. L. Caktek.
Mrs. Rhv)die Noah, of this place, was
taken in yie night with cramping pains
and the next day diarrhoea set in. She
took half a bottle of blackberry cordial
but no relief. She then sent to me to see
if I had anything that would help her. I
sent her a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and, the
first dose relieved her. Another of our
neighbors had been sick foi about a week
and had tried different remedies for
diarrhoea but kept getting worse. I sent
him this same remedy. Only four doses
of it were required to cure him. Hr j says
he owes his recovery to this wonderful
remedy.—Mrs. Mary Sibley, Sidney,

The Late Miss Helen Bigelow.
Speaking of the recent death at Seat
tle of Miss Bigelow, who was stricken
with paralysis and died within thiee
days without regaining consciousness,
a Vermont paper, published at or near
her old home, very truly says that
"she was a woman of great sweetness
of character and readily won the friend
ly regard of those with whom she
came in contact.
She came west three years ago on a
pleasure trip and liked so well that she
remained and accepted a position at
Interbay, near Seattle. She had visited
for several months with Mr. and Mr.
G. N. Culver and family at Point Law
rence, this county, and at Fairhaven,
and had made many friends to whom
her sudden death was a most unex
pected and painful sbock.
Last summer one of our grand children
was sick with a severe bowel trouble.
Our doctor's remedies had failed, the we
tried Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, which gave very
speedy relief. We regard it as the best
medicine ever put on the market for bow
el complaints.—Mrs. E. G. Gregory,
Frederickstown, Mo. This certainly is
the best medicine ever put on the market
for dysentery, summer complaint, colic
and cholera infantum in children. It
never fails to give prompt reliet when
used in reasonable time and the plain
printed directions are followed. Many
mothers have expressed their sincere
f rat it inle for the cures it has effected,
