THE AK1Z0NA KEPUbUCAN: FK1DAY MOKNlftG, FEBKLTARY 15, 1895; SALMON SLAUGHTEEED. Enormoua Catches Made in the Hudson Straits. Where Some of the Finest Fish In the World Are Taken by the Thou sands Peculiar Method Employed. "If to see how the magnificent salm on of the Pacific coast are caught almost takes the heart out of the man who loves to cast the fly for these lordly fish, he would lose it entirely1 i he venture , to tlngava bay, in Upper Canada, and see how they capture salmon there," said a former agent of Ihe Hudson Bay company to a New York Sun man. "It was only a few years ago that the possibilities of the south coast of Jngava bay and Hudson straits in the way of salmon and lake trout fishing were discovered, and to say that they are now being worked for all they are worth is putting it mildly. The salmon of that high latitude are undoubtedly the finest in the world. They are fur ther north than any other salmon taken on this continent, and the lower the tempe rature of the water the bet ter salmon are. The Restigouche, or any of the salmon of the St. Lawrence basin, are far superior to the Oregon salmon, and the Hudson straits salmon are just as much superior to the Resti gouche fish. Besides the salmon the waters of the Hudson strait coast teem with a deep-sea trout which has not its tike on the face of the globe. "But the method adequate for catch ing these fish is just as peculiar as the fish themselves are, and it is doubtful if salmon or trout fishing is done in the same way elsewhere. The coast of Hudson straits is indented by thou sands of small bays and estuaries, and many rivers traverse it to the bay. At low tide there is little water in any of these inlets, but at high tide the water rushes up into them for long distances. The tides rise tweaty-five and even fifty feet. At high tide, in the, salmon and trout running seasons, these fish follow with the water into the bays and rivers as fast as the tide goes, and swarm back with it when it ebbs. I have seen the smaller rivers, streams, or rather stream beds, one hundred feet wide, actually choked from shore to shore with the biggest salmon a man ever saw struggling upward with the tide- ' "It is not more than eight or nine years ago that the first attempt was made to establish fisheries there on a large scale. Drawing seines was im possible, and the fish wheels of Oregon were impracticable. So a simple but exceedingly effective trap was intro duced. It was not original with the salmon fishermen, the idea being borrowed from the porpoise fishermen of Hudson bay. Immense nets were made from the largest and strongest twine, and of length and depth to suit the inlet to be fished. 1 At low tide the nets are set at the mouths of the Bays cr inlets, and the top of the net is hamed to tne bottom so as to offer no obstruction to the water or fish as they pass upward with the rising tide. Just before the tide turns the line holding the floater side of the net to the anchored side is drawn out. "The buoys instantly rise to the surface and the trap is set. When the tide comes back men are stationed above the nets some distance, and wth poles and 6rush beat the water and make noises -of various kinds. This is to keep the great body of fish from pressing upon the net at once, arid as the fish are ex ceedingly timid they rush back up stream by the thousand, and will actually be left on the dry land by the receding tide, so panic stricken ao they fceeome at the noise made by the men. When the tide has gone out, the dry beds of the inlets will bepiled with tons upon tons of salmon or trout. Not salmon and trout, for both kinds are never found in the same inlet. In one the trap may secure fifty cr one hun dred tons of salmon at a mn, while the next estuary below the catsh will be trout. I have seen ten thousand salm on taken at one haul. "I have seen the marvelous salmon runs of the Oregon rivers, but they are no comparison to the tremendous rushes of those Hudson straits fish. It may be that if the latter had big fresh water rivers to explore they would not be massed so thickly along the coast, but the channels they seek are not sufficient to let them all in. If the salmon supply of the work! else where should ever become exhausted, it can be replaced easily by the fish of those great northern waters. A thou sand big vessels could take on cargoes of salmon and trout there every season without visibly lessening the supply." THE GEN. BOOTH MINE. Gold That Is Dag by Alombers of the Sal vation Army. Way up in one of the most inacessi hie portions of the Huachuca range of mountains, near Prescott, A. T., there is situated perhaps the most . unique mining camp m the world, says the Mining Industry and Tradesman. The sixteen men who daily toil m the tren. Booth mine are all members of the Sal vation Array, and the profits of the mine all go into the treasury of that or ganization. The history of the location and subsequent development of the mine is interesting. "Old Dick" Taylor, the discoverer, is cessful prospectors in the territory. Coming to Arizona in the early days, when the whole southwestern (Kiuiitry was a wilderness given over to the Apache Indians, he has prospected the country from one end to the other, and made more valuable lo cations than any other man in Arizona. The One Horse, Bad Luck and Desert mines in the Harqua Hala country, the Apache a::l .ew York in the Superstitious mountains, the King in the Bradshaws and jiany others were located by him, and have since made fortunes for the investors. Dick Taylor was, perhaps, the most profane man in the southwest. His vocabulary of invective was something phenomenal, and was brought into use on the (.lightest provocation. The pic turesqneness and volubility of hu, oaths were proverbial over the territory for many years. It is said that after each sale Taylor would invest in a year"s grub-stake and then proceed to sptnd the remainder of the money in the wildest debauchery. At one time he ran through with ten thousand dollars in two weeks in I hoenix, throwing his money away in the most reckless man ner. His money once gone, he returned to his prospecting, and touched no liquor until hi:s next sale. It was immediately after the sale of the Apache mine for fifteen thousand dollars that ho started on his wildest debauch in Phoenix. For over a month he did not draw a sober breath, and, at last, reduced cgain to poverty and weakened mentally and physically, he professed religion at an open-air meet ing of the Salvation Army in Phoenix. For over two months he marched with the army at its nightly meetings, but finding such a routine life too irksome, he again started for the hills. Nothing was heard of him for over two months, and it was reported that he had per ished on the desert, but one day he again turned up in Phoenix with a burro load of rich ore, which set the town ablaze with excitement. Some of the nuggets which he brought were valued at fifty dollars. Every one was surprised when he announced his in tention of turning his latest find over to the Salvation Army. It was duly proffered to and accepted by that or ganization, and fifteen men volunteered to develop it. Work was commenced over a year ago under the direction of Taylor, and has progressed steadily since. The pay streak is sixteen inches wide, and has paid well from the grass roots. The ore is treated in two crushers erected near the mine, but it is proposed soon to bring in a ten-stamp mill. Strict religious discipline is maintained in the camp, and the profits, after paying the necessary expenses, go into the treasury of the army to aid in the work of that organization. Two shifts of six men each work under ground, while the remainder attend to the treatment of the ore and transpor tation of necessary supplies. Supplies are freighted one hundred miles. ENGLISH RAILROAD COACHES. lfirst-Clas Cars Upholstered lletter Than Those in ThiB Country. The standard English passenger car riage is considerably shorter than our car, has three axles, no end platforms and is entered by side doors, says ScriDner. The nrst-ciass ear contains four compartments, each with six places, three with backs to the engine and three facing. The seats are sep arated bv broad and comfortable arm rests, and there are arm rests on the sides of the carriage also. These rests are low enough, broad enough and soft enough to be comfortable. The com partment is about seven feet square in side, giving ample room for the six seats, which are de ep, wide, padded to the height of the head and upholstered better than anything that I know of in America. There are ample racks for hand luggage, a rug on the floor and one lamp in the roof. The second and third-class carriages have five compart ments, making the seats less deep fore and aft and giving less room for the knees than in the first-class. The second-class compartments seat eight per sons, and the bench across the car is di vided by but one arm rest, so that if the places are all full you and your neighbor are separated only by an imaginary line The third-class com partments seat only ten persons and the benches are net divided at all, the five persons on a side being in pretty close contact. These are not nearly as well upholstered as the first-class, but are good enough in that respect. These are the standards, but there are many exceptions. For short-distance traffic, for example, it is quite common to seat eight in a first-class compartment and to seat ten in a second-class compart ment. A WIDENING GULF. The Wonderful Changes Taking Fiace in the Enbcean Channel. Every schoolboy or girl who has read a little of Greek history knows how im portant a part the Euboecfii gulf or channel between the island of Eubcea and the mainland of Greece has pla3'ed in that history; biat the gulf itself has a history as wonderful and interesting irivits way as that of the people dwell ing along its shores. According to the belief of some geologists, says Youth's Companion, it has been created by earthquakes, and is gradually grow ing wider. It began, long before recorded hn- man history, as a surface crack in the earth's crust, which became filled I with water irom the Mediterranean sea. In the course of time the gulf was widened by the breaking and set-. tlin.T of the rocks, each important step i in the proe;;ws being accompanied prob-! ably by severe earthquakes. The lateot occurrence of this kind i was last spring, when, during the j earthquake that shook Athens and de stroyed three villages in eastern Orrccse. a huge fissure thirty-four miles long and varying from a few inches to ten feet in width, was opened near the Grecian shore of the gulf. Along a pnrt of the course of this fissure the ground sank so much that several yards were added to the width of the gulf. This change took place near its north ern end, but there is considerable low, level lar.-.l uioajr its entire length, and it is not a pleasant, thoir-li interest ing, suggestion that a cou;::-.uauec' of th L; process c f encroach ment may some time resc.U in the disappearance of the c . U.bratxl plain of Marathon, burying the great battlefield forever from the sight of men. A FAMOUS RUSSIAN REGIMENT. Organized by Peter the Great and Always a Favorite with the Czar. The Preobrajenski regiment of the imperial guards, which has taken so importan t a part in the ceremonies ac compan3Ting the funeral of the late Al exander III., and which has had the honor of precedence over all the other regiments of Russia, in so far as to be first among the troops to take the oath of allegiance to the youthful Czar Is'icholas III., is one of the oldest regi ments in the army of the imperial guard and may be said to owe its origin to Peter the Great, who, when but a boy at Preobrajenski, near Mos cow, formed his playmates into a little band of miniature soldiers, and thus at the age of eleven yea-rs gave an early proof of his faculty for organization. This 'little force was subsequently called "La Compagnie de Divertisse ment de Pierre le Grand." It was the wish of his imperial highness the late Czar Alexander III. to be interred in the uniform of his favorite regiment, as indeed it was also the desire of his predecessor, Alexander II. The present Czar Kicholas II- is colonel of ' the famous Preobrajenski regiment, and at the various state functions consequent to his office al most invariably wears the costume of the regiment to which he is most at tached. The uniform is a dark blue one, and his imperial majesty, when attired in the full dress uniform of his rank, with golden epaulettes and wear ing the light blue riband of the Order of St. Andrew, is said to look exceed ingly well. .An Ancient Bank Note. The Bank of England has in its pos session a bank note dated December 19,1099, for 555. It was printed from an engraved plate, but had blank spaces for the amount, date, number, and sig nature. Across it are written memo randa, showing that it was repaid in three installments. In appearance it is not altogether unlike the modern note. In the bank library is another note for 25, which was not presented for 111 years. Another curiosity, said to be unique, is a note for no less than 1,000,000, dated 1782. Dresgmaklng.
