their first public concert, which,
from what wc can hear, is likely to be
most enjoyable. For some time past the

from the efficient and careful manner
in which Professor Cook is training
his class are sure to be well rendered.

considerable attention is being be
stowed on them by the ladies and

Second Letter From Mr. Newsomc,
on the General Outlook
Things in this Vicinity.
f Written for Thk Astorun.J
There is a large and valuable
district of country lying opposite
and across the Columbia bay and
river from Astoria, in Washington
territory, very much like the coun
try which I have faintly described
on the south of the river. All the
commerce and trade of that sec
lion north of here, must center at
Astoria, and pass away upon the
mighty fleet of large ocean vessels
outward bound to the worlds mar
kets. In an article in Thk Daily As
tokian of the 20th, I alluded to
the canneries in operation here.
13ut that article was penned in a
hurry, and was short, as 1 then ex
pected to leave on Monday. Since
then 1 have seen or heard frcm all
ihe .canneries on the Columbia
river. The gentlemanly proprietors
of some of those canneries have
given me data of the very large
and rapidly growing business in
the fisheries here. There are
twenty-five canneries now in ac
'Jve operation on this river. The
proprietors do not seem alarmed
for the failure of any future run of
salmon. These twenty-five can
neries put up now daily about
H'rty thousand salmon. The fish
ing boats are manned by white
men, who make excellent wages.
Here then is a daily income to the
white men and their families here
(or to single men as the case mav
be), of fifteen thousand dollars.
Then in the canneries there arc
about thirteen hundred white men
employed. Of Chine men about
three thousand employed in the
canneries. These three thousand
"Heathen Chinee" would be dis
placed with white men, if such
milil be obtained, who would be
constantly and reliably at their
po.--s. But if strikes and the oottle
should subtract Irom the necessary
force to carry on all the different
portions of the work iii the can
reries, heavy losses would occur
to the proprietors of them. All
the fish brought in from the boats
daily must be cut up, canned and
cooked on that daT, or they would
spoil. And no one man should be
r-nent irom his post. All the caua
vre made in the canneries, packed
i-id labelled, an 1 boxed up ready
iiv niu'ket. The lumber and
boxes are made in Astoria for
shipping all this great quantity cf
export fish.
As the fishing season has only
yei fa'rly set in here, the call fo.
errgoes of canned salmon arc as
ye but few. The large, heavy
Weighted ships, which will float
i'ier thousands of tons of this fish
stores of cooked fish, to fore'rn
lands for ordinary consumption of
tl.e laboring masses, who cannot
a fiord dear meats for tbily use.
T?u'e are canneries here whose
owners have established a cha.ac-
ter, and wiiose names are pass-

daily at that, so that there is a
twelve hour run for the fish when
the nets are rot spread for them;
iud multitudes of the fish pass up
under the nets. Then we may
leasonably infer that there will
be a goodly number of salmon left
to cast their spawn, in spawning
season here.
The amount of salmcn canned
and ready for market here this year,
judging from present indications,
7il exceed two and a half millions
of dollars. And the amountof out

thousand dollars laid out in tue

that one cannery for one year.
All these nets are made by white
persons, and so are all the boxes

"When the fishingseason is ended,
there can and should be factories
erected and run here in the vari
o is departments, to give employ
ment to the white people who work
in the fisheries and canneries, but
lack employment the remainder of
the year. This would keep and
retain families and others perma
nently here, to the building up of
the country. I am informed that
extensive preparations are being
made to utilize some of the can
neries, after the fishing season is
ended, to storing of wheat for ship
ping, at rates that will defy coin
petition elsewhere. More anon.

Rough Fishing.
Capt. B. F. Stevens, of Badollet
& Co.'s steamer Katata, informs us
that night before last the swell was
the roughest he has seen it for years
near the bar. It was fearful in Bak
er's bay. The Edith lost her gang
plank off the deck, and men were com
pelled to hold on to the life boat to
keep it from going overboard. The
plank was recovered.
The body of a man was picked up
on the weather beach about five miles'
south of Oi'sterville road. The body
w;is dressed in a blue saque coat, with
dark woolen pants, woolen check shirt,
gum boots and oil skin coat. He had
been a man apparently 175 or 180 lbs
weight, about live feet ten inches high.
The body seemed to have been in the
water a week or ten days.
A boat and net was towed into the
Cape yesterday morning. The boat
was filled with water, and appeared to
have gone out to sea and back again.
The men are missing. It is a private
boat, with only the license number on
it 494, issued to Eli. Ipson, paint
ed blue.
One of the Bradly and Davis boats
lost a net night before last, but found
it in the edge of the brakers too far
gone for rescue. Net probably lost.
Fishermen should take into account
the present high stage of water in the
river, which makes the slack and tides
very different, in the vicinity of the
Mrs. Carr'e Clarke Ward will be

fessionals of the city have volunteered
their service3, and one of the finest
plays ever put upon the stage is in
