The Wide. West has made the

stoppages we believe sho could make

from London that "the Queen took a

The funeral of tho late Mrs.

noon and was largely attended. The
services were conducted by Rev.
Winfield Scott in the Baptist church,
which was filled with tho friends of
the deceased who testified by their
presence the regret they felt for the
friend and neighbor who was gone.
H. G. Hurlburt, one of the O. &
C. engineers, arrived down on the
Wide West yesterday, and procuring a
horse immediately started out toward
the Nehalem on a reconnoitering ex
pedition. He was reticent as to the
time the survey for the Astoria rail
road would begin, but says that more
of thb engineer c orps will be down
this way in a few days.
The bids for supplying the mili

Idaho, with, wood, hay, oats, barley,

July 1, were opened last Monday at
Vancouver by Major A. S. Kimball.
The contract for Forts Stevens,
Canby and Vancouver, aggregating
$50,000, was given to Wm. Burnell
of Portland. Tho bids averaged for
hay $30 ptr ton, hard wood $5.50
per cord, oats 75 cents per bushel,
straw $10 per ton.
The latest issue of the Portland
Standard to hand puzzles us even
worse than tho telegraph dispatch fa
cilities of the other papers. The pa
per announces on three pages
"Tuesday April 9th," and the first six
"dispatches" on tho 1st page are
headed "St. Petersburg, April 9,"
"Dublin, April 9;" St. Iiouis, April
0;" "Berlin, April 9;" "Oskaloosa,
April 9;" and "Paris, April 9." We
can readily understand tho Paris dis
patch, but we cannot see how that
Osk&loow dispatch of April 9th got
over in time. That's getting the
"diipatoh" business down pretty fine.
There will bo a meeting of cannery

THE PARTIES WHO ARE TO
An Official Statement.
There has been a good deal written
and a great clcai of righteous indigna
tion expressed, regarding the practice
of shipping sailors and demanding so
much apiece from the ship masters,
who it has been sometimes made to
appear are poor, innocfciit fellows in
tho hands of the Philistines. The
following is published because official
ly signed and throws additional ,;ght
on an interesting subject.
Capt. C. C. Duucan, C. S. Ship
ping Commissioner at New York, hav
ing written to J. D. Stevenson who
occupies the'same position at San
Francisco, concerning the "blood
money" practice at that port, was fa
vored with the following answer:
OmcE or U. S. Suifpinu Com- i
San Francisco, March 5, 1883. )
C. C. Ddncan, Esq.
U. S. Shipping Commissioner, Np.w
Dear Sir: Your eatemed favor of
14th ult, was duly received. In
your letter you ask "Cannot blood
money in your port be suppressed"
I will answer this by giving yon a his
tory of it siuco Aug. 7, 1872. When
I took this office I found it to be an
established custom, when seamen wero
scarce for tho boarding-house masters
to demand from captains wanting
crews from $3 to $40 for oach
man furnished. I determined to atop
it. I therefore sought and had an in
terview with the British Consul, Mr.
Booker, and we decided to call a
meeting of American and English
captains and consignees and endeav
ored to bring about concerted action
with a view of breaking up this prac
tice. All parties agreed to stand to
gether and refuse to accede to tho de
mands for "blood money." Tele
gruns were sent by masters to their
ship owners in the east and in Eng
land, who replied directing their ves
sels to be laid up "till they rotted"
rather than pay "blood money."
Within two weeks the board-ing-hoiis9
masters gave it up;
and from that timo for nearly
two years, we heard no more of it.
When it was again demanded I pur
sued tho same course; but notwith
standing the promises made, one of
the English ship captains offered a
bonus for men to till his ship, and
every other captain was obliged to do
tho same. Since that time, however,
I have managed to prevent the board
ing houso masters demanding the

very scarce (under such circumstances
no de'mand has been made by the
boarding houso masters.) Somo of
these captains will agreo to wait their
turn, conceding to ships first in turn,
the right to have their crews first.
Another will put his ship in the
stream and finding somo eight or ten
vessels ahead of him in turn, ignores
the question of turn aud offers $10 to
$20 per man to fill his ship. This you
will readily see incites others to bid
higher and frequently as high as $40
per man is paid, aud in every case the
otter is a voluntary one. i nave trieu
to make captains understand that the
payment of this money will not make
men more plentiful, but will only act
as an incentive to sailor runners to
pick up and ship worthless men; but I
have no effect upon them; all they
want is something to fill their ship3 to
enable them to clear and satisfy their
owners at home. For tho past three
or four months sailors have been very
scarce, but nevertheless ships havo
been sent away and no blood money
paid, becauso no captain has boon
foolish enough or greedy enough to
make any offer. The fact is that the
captains are themselves to blame. If
they would agree not to pay or offar
this money, and hold to such agree
ments, there would bo no trouble.
But yet if a shipmaster receives a
telegram from his owner offering him
to get his crew and go to sea at any
cost, and there aro several ships on
turn before hi&i, he has no choice in
snch a case, and, I have no doubt,
there are many shipowners who havo
no right to complain about blood
money at this port.
