SAVE THE SALMON.
Superintendent Woodbury Talks About
the Close Season,
He Will Fight the Proposition to Set
the Season Back to the Middle
J. G-. Wbodbury, Superintendent of
Hatcheries and the Restoration of Fishes
and Secretary of the State Board of Fish
Commissioners, is iv the city, and will
appear before the Senate Committee on
Fish and Game Laws to-day to tight the
proposition to have the close salmon sea
son extend from the middle of Septem
ber to the Ist of November of each year.
There is before the Legislature a peti
tion bearing about 5,000 signatures pray
ing that this change bo made, and the
matter will be considered by the commit
Mr. Woodbury was interviewed by a
Record-Union reporter last evening
with reference to his mission.
"We have no one here to defend us,"
he said, "with the exception of myself. I
telegraphed to J. D. Redding and Ramon
Wilson, but I am afraid they cannot get
here in time. But I will do the best I
can in the matter. This move to have
the close salmon season commence in the
middle of September
WILL BE A DISASTROUS ONE,
If successful, to the salmon supply of Cal
ifornia. And, strange to ssiy, the can
nery people are the ones who are backing
it. They are only cutting their owii
throats. Their argument is that after the
middle of September the salmon are not
good to eat, and they are willing that tho
season should then be closed. If this is
true, then why should we perpetuate that
kind of salmon? They also claim that
by closing the season at the end of Au
gust many fishermen and others are
thrown out of work. But if their peti
tion goes through, and the close season is
changed, it will only be a short time
when they will have no work to do at all.
The salmon will bo depleted."
Coutinuing.iMr. Woodbury said that he
•was willing to accede to the canneries
and fishermen the month of September,
but he would insist upon August being
the close st-ason. He also wanted tho
month of April included.
WHY IT SHOULD BE.
"The spawning time at the Govern
ment hatchery on the MeCloud Hirer for
the great run of salmon in the lato sum
mer and fall is principally during tho
month of September," he said; "it
usually opens about tho 2.Sth of August
and continues until the latter part of
'•The vital points of the question in con
sidering the timo for the dosQ season are:
At what time should the close season be
gin at tho fishing grounds on the lower
Sacramento EUver, and how long should
it last in order that enough breeding
salmon from the groat run during the
months of August and September may
reach the United States hatchery on the
Mcdood River, during the month of
September, to furnish sufficient eggs for
the artificial hatching of young tisi» for
distribution on the nursery grounds to
maintain the supply of mature salmon
for food, which the rivers for nursery
grounds and ihe ocean for feed till the
salmon are matured, are capable of pro
NOW AND THEN.
"Ten yours ago, daring the administra
tion of B. B. Redding, s. R. Thoekmor
ton and J. D. Far well as Fish Commis
sioners, as many as 14,000,000 of salmon
eggs were taken daring the month of Sep
tember from the fall run of salmon. The
close season at that time was during the
month of August. The close season is
now, and luis been for some years since,
during IJiu month of September. Tho
Government hatchery on ihe MeCloud
River renewed its operations in 1888. The
number of eggs taken In September, 1888, |
was only about 1,500,000; and in 1889,
only about 1,100,000 eggs; or, averaging
for the two years. le>s than one-tenth as
many eggs as were taken ten years ago, j
when the close season was during the j
month of August. This is a loss of 90 |
"For what cause, or by whose agency
the close season was changed from the j
month of August to the month of Sep- I
tember, Ido not know. It was certainly
a very disastrous change, If the interests
of the salmon were considered.
"Muring the last Legislature, in 18S8, a
bill was introduced by some one— from
Solano County, I believe—to change the
present close season for salmon from the
month of September to the month of |
October. If tain bill had become a law,
the dose season would have been pushed
entirely beyond the season of the great
run of salmon. "Give them an inch and
they will take an ell," if they can get it.
It is of the utmost importance that the
close season should be placed back again
to tho month of August. If more sain ion
do not reach tho McCloud River during
the month of September than have
arrived there during the past two years,
.serious consequences will happen to the
salmon industry of California.
CHANGE IT BACK.
"By changing the close season for sal
mon back again to the month of August,
it can easily be determined if the run of
salmon has lessened during the past ten
years. If as many salmon do not arrive
there during August and September as
did ten years ago, or if an Insufficient
number got up during that period from
which to secure the number of eggs nec
essary for artificial reproduction, then it
■will be imperative to include part or the
■whole month of September in the close
season, in addition to the month of
Before closing tho interview*, Mr.
Woodbury showed the reporter a copy of
a letter received by him from George B.
Williams, Superintendent of the McCloud
River station which bears on the subject
materially. Following is an extract from
St'PKRINTENPEXT WILLIAMS' OPINION.
Two years of experience in charge of this

can be handled successfully. In order to al
low this run to reach the headwaters of the
Sacramento River and Its tributaries, the
months of August and Beptember should be
reserved to allow !i ireo passage Of salmon.
I draw my conclusions from the feet tluit In
previous years, when there wiis no fishing
■with seines In the Sacramento to speak of, thou
sands of salmon collected here during the lat
ter part of August and during the month of
September, and we found no difficulty In se
curing all the eggs we could handle, 14.000,
--000 on baling been taken In one season.
From the August run in ISSS but 1,565,f>00
egga wens secured, and in 18S9 1,105,000
were taken. In 1888 die season's take was
Increased to 5.604,600, by securing ova from
the late run In October and November. Hut
this was something unusual, and could not
have been accomplished hnd it not been that
the rains did not set in until December of that
year. An attempt was made In 1889 to take
the late run, but rains, in October caused the
Z-'.n load to become very high, and rucks and
dams were washed out. allowing the parent
lish to ascend the river and small creeks
tibove the station.
Ii is very hard to decide how Ion? it takes
the salmon to reach their spawning grounds
after they leave the seining grounds of the
lower Sacramento, but as near as we can tell
from two to three weeks.
The Stoen-Wood Novelty and Mystery
Company gave its third performance at
the Metropolitan Theater last night. Mr.
Wood presented a varied and clever pro
gramme of modern magic and ventrilo
quism, and "Edna"' repeated her "flight
in the air." The oftener this beautiful
mechanical trick is seen the more
puzzling it appears. Certainly nothing
neater has been given here in that line,
and it is infinitely superior to Herman's
black-backgrounu performance, which
created so much interest here a few years
ago. Mr. and Mrs. Stoen gave a mind
reading and second-sight entertainment,
in which Mr. Steen very plainly tokl the
audience that ho communicated to the
blindfolded lady i\ll the information she
announces; that he does so despite any
watching by the committee or the audi
ence, and that in every word he utters
there is a key which the "medium"
understands. But he did not claim that
her announcements of birth dates,
names thought of, etc, are explainable
in alike manner. Her performance is
altogether wonderful, ana even as a trick
is surprising and of profound interest.
The committee last evening consisted of
Messrs. Boysen, Cooper, Peterson,
Wissman, Hammer and Zeirner, and it
confessed Its inability to delect tho
method of the operators in their work.
To-night a change of programme.
A Senate Committee Investigating tho
There was a largo numl>er of Legisla
tive Committees in session last night at
the Capitol, but those which had matters
of more than ordinary interest before
them failed to arrive at definite results.
The Senate Conimitteo on Elections
held a long and interesting session. The
chief subject considered was ballot re
form, in regard to which there are several
bills before tho committee. Senator
Ostrom has one. Senator Longford ha;s
another, and mere are still others. The
bills all ditl'er more or less in their de
tails, but tho main feature of each i.s
based on the Australian ballot system.
Judge James G. Ifaguire, of Ban Fran
cisco, appeared before tho conimitteo last
night and explained the workings of the-
Australian system, at tho same time dis
cussing the various inodications thereof,
and amendments contained in the bills
The committee was in session until a
late hour without having arrived at any
definite conclusion regarding the kind of
bill to bo reported. It will probably de
cide upon a committee substitute for
them all, embracing some of tho features

An Animated Conimitteo Meeting-, But
tho Chairman Betnsetf to Work
Tho atmosphere of Colusa pervaded rill
the corridors and many of tho committee
rooms in tho Capitol building last night.
Reporters, searching for advance legisla
tive tips, would no sooner poke their
heads into a committee-room than they
would cither see a-t'olusa, statesman or
granger addressing the committee, or
hear some Senator or Assemblyman from
another county declaiming vehemently
on a Colusa subject.
The Assembly Committee on Elections
was engaged at the north end of the build
ing in taking testimony in the Campbell-
Eakle contested election case; at tho
south end of the building editor Green,
of the iS'ini, was explaining to the Senate
Committee on Irrigation the merits or de
merits of certain bills before that body
affecting irrigation interests generally,
and those of Colusa particularly.
.Near the center of the Capitol the large
room of Department Two of the Supreme
Court was rili<-d with Colusa County peo
ple, chiefiy farmers, who had come to
testify before the Senate Committee on
Counties and County Boundaries against
tin- proposed division of that county.
These horny-handed sons of toil were
marshaled under the leadership of Gen
eral John Boggs, with A. 11. Rose and L.
F. Moulton us Field Marshals.
One afnr another the representatives of
the bucolic districts of Colusa were called
up by Mr. Boggs and required to tell the
committee how long they had lived there
and why they were opposed to a division
of the county.
After about fifty gentlemen had thus
freed their minds, tiie members of the
<•'immitt.ee began to weary of tho mo
notony, and Chairman Camp bell, of So
lano. suggested that all hands go to bed
and resume the subject at 9 o'clock in the
morning. But Mr. Boggs had not got
through, lie had been reserving his
heavy artillery with which to t>ut on the
finishing touches—to give the coup dc
grace, as it were, to the lusty young
Glenn county giant that had been for so
long a time worrying tho good people of
the southern half of < oiusa.
So lie called up Colonel L. F. Moulton,
who told of his thirty-livoiniU-s ot' levee
along the Sacramento riVer, and how he
did not want it cut in two by a county
Again the chairman called a halt, and
the Glenn County representatives present
said they would admit that all Of Mr.
Boggs' forces present were antj-dlvision
ists. But Mr. Boggs pleaded fora few
minutes for Mr. Rose to speak, and
Chairman Campbell said (it was then 10
o'clock) ho Mould give him just ten
minutes. And Mr. Rose took tho full
Then Mr. Boggs asked to be allowed to
address the committee, but the Solano
Senator declared he would not listen to
another word. Be was tired —worn out,
in fact—and if Mr. Boggs or any other
Colusaite wanted to be heard be would
have to come before the committee the
next morning and do his talking.
Mr. Campbell th*»n adjourned his com
mittee until v o'clock this morning.
Hall ana Mi-lluffU Enornco In a Very
The t'omique Theater was packed last
night, the attraction being a glove con
test between H;ill,the local colored cham
pion, and Pat Mcllugh, a -white importa
tion from San Francisco. >«"either of the
men displayed any science in "the art of
self-defense or gentlemanly attack," and
for ten rounds the audience was greatly
unused by the endeavors of each lo hyp
notize the other.
After the tenth it became exciting.
In the sucfeeding round McHngh
shoved Hall through the ropes and off
the stage into the audience As
Hall did not get back into the
ring inside of the prescribed ten
seconds, a great howl went up from the
white man's adherents that th" tight be
given to their man, and when the referee
showed signs of wavering, the crowd
broke into the ring. It required the ef
forts of half a dozen police oiiiecrs to re
store order, after which the referee or
dered the "i-outosf to proceed.
\ From now on it degenerated into a
pushing match, ouch contestant exerting
himself to shove the other off the stage.
McHngh was the best pusher, and in the
tiltcenth round landed Hall out into the
audience again. Then there was another
howl and din. When the referee could
make himself heard he declared the
"contest" a draw.

A Colored Woman C.'hni"ges her Hus-

Mrs. Clara Williams, a colored lady,
living on N street between Fifth and
Sixth, intends to make her husband ex
plain what right, if any, ho had to dic
tate to her as to where she should go, and
forcibly attempt to take her to his house.
Mrs. Williams and her husband attend
the same church and go to tho so
cials given in the basement of the
African M. E. Church, on Seventh street
between Gand H. After the festivities
are over, the wife goes to her home, and
Mr. Williams hies himself in an opposite
direction to his domicile. The two live
apart, but have not boon divorced.
Several evenings ago, according to the
story told by Mrs. Williams, see had

her husband approached her and de
manded that she accompany him to his
house. She refused, and, she claims, he
caught hold of her and attempted to drag
her. lie afterwards released his grasp ana
allowed her to go as she pleased.
Mrs. Williams considers that her hus

opinion yesterday on the question as to
whether or not the Commissioners of the

srme, are entitled to draw from the gen
eral fund money expended by them in
traveling. Ho says:
"My idea is that when the general ap
propriation bill was passed two years
ago, provision for the payment of "these
Commissioners was overlooked; and al
though these bills are just and should bo
paid, there is a deficiency, and the claims
should be sent to the Legislature for the
purpose of submitting to it the question
whether or not a bill should be passed aft
a deficiency bill, providing for the pay
ment of these Commissioners and I ad
vise that that course be taken."

We have purchased from prominent manufactur

comprising a great number of different styles, and have
marked them at prices much below regular value. The
collection consists of Skirts, Gowns, Corset Covers,
Drawers, Aprons, Pillow Shams, Infants' Robes and
Children's Short Dresses.
In addition to above we have a special lot of
Ladies' Muslin Chemise, in all sizes, at 35 cents. These
Chemise have yokes of solid embroidery and are fin
ished with linen lace.
Also, another lot of Chemise with yokes of re
vering between clusters of fine tucks; seams finished

portance, embracing as it will a very large number of
garments and all of a desirable character.
