Oregon's claim for 8390,820.10. mon

expresses great disappointment that
the claim, which first secretary Ear
hart, then secretary McBride, and
himself, on his recent trip east, had
urged before the government, has
been disallowed. Tho governor does
not know of any remedy for the Btate
to resort to, since it appeared that the
claim's disposal had been definitely
determined upon by the department.

Give books, bnt do not lend. To
lend a book is to bid it farewell for
ever. It is the law and tho prophets.
It is not in tho least that the borrow

does intend to. There is not nn act
or thought of his life which is not en
tirely honorable, nnd he would never
dream of defrauding or nunoying any
one. Hut there is a special fato that
prevails over the borrowed book. It
is under a spall. It is no more amen

United States fish commissioner
Stone will return from the vicinity of
Spokano Falls next week and take
charge of the hatchery on the Olaok
amas river. Tho eggs nnd fish from
the Clacknmns hatchery will only bo
used for tho Colnmbin river. Tho
agreement under which tho Clacka
mas hatchery was turned over to tho
United States was that its product
should bo used solely for the benefit
of tho Columbia river. There is noth
ing, however, to prevent commission
er McDonald from furnishing eggs or
fish to California from the hatchery
on the McClond river.
At the Misbawaka school election
on the 15th inst., A. Furtado received
nt the postoffice n letter from French
Prairie with 860 in it, in greenbacks.
He used 825 of the money and with
out reading it laid it down on n desk
to sign n school clerk's bond as direc
tor, and then, forgetting all about his
letter, went home. After nwhile ho
thought ho wonld read his letter nnd
remembered leaving it at the school
house. He went back to the school
house bright nnd early tho next morn
ing, but couldn't find the envelope
nor the letter, nor the 835 that he
had hnd in his inside pocket, and has
not found them up to last account.
Ho doesn't miud tho mouey. but is
mighty sorry that he didn't got ,i
chance to read the letter.
A well known hor.se-trniner and
jockey named Harry Smiley left Port
land last Tuesday for Victoria, to
which place he bought a first-class
ticket, no left the train at Taconia,
went to a drug store whero he pur
chased three ounces of laudanum,
registered at the Empire honso and
retired at onco to hi.s room. At 10
o'clock his frightfully heavy brcnth
ingwas heard in the hnlls and caused
an investigation. Ho was found in
sensible from the effects of the opiate
he had taken, and nn honr later he
died. In his memorandum book tho
following was scrawled: "I cannot
keep straight. Good-by; my name is
Harry Smiley. Please send what
money yon find hero to Mr. O. Smiley,
Portland, Oregon." In his pocket
was a letter from John Fngan, Castle
Rock, W. T., nddro3scd to Ilarry
Smiley, Portland, Oregon.
Gov. Semple, of Washington terri
tory, wants the sheriffs of Pacific
Wahkiaknm and Cowlitz counties to
use their utmost endeavors to enforce
the fishery laws. He says that by co
operation of officers on both sides ot
tho river, there ought to be no ser
ious difficulty in the way. All mon
interested in this great iudustry, who
suspend operations willingly duriug
the clo30 season, should be callod up
on to render assistance to the officers
ot the law in bringing violators of it
to justice. "I respectfully suggest
that it would bo well for tho sheriffs
to make it known in some pnblio way
that those who disregard tho statutes
will probably find it difficult to avoid
detection nnd punishment. The
great importance of this industry,
and tho danger it is in of being ex
tinguished by improvident methods,
is shown in my roport to tho interior
department for 1837."
The Portlnnd ranrkot nt nresont is
glutted with sturpcon nnd yesterday's
steamer for California took 20,000 ttis
to San Francisco. Tho reason for
tho large supply is due, says tho Neics,
to the fact that n fish dealer
from Chicago was horo for two
months during the winter nnd took
all the fish that was offered at 2
cents per pound. Tho fish was pr
served by a" secret process which
kept it fresh, and shipped to Chicago
by the carload, where it was smoked
nnd Eold readily at n profit. The re
sult of this, added to tho local demand
wa3 that sturgeon fishing became a
very profitable occupation and nntim
berjembarked in it. When the frozen
lakes and rivers ot the east thawed
out so that fishing could bs resumed,
the Chicago man left for home as he
could then obtain sturgeon nearer
nome. xno jrosuit was that tons of
sturgoon were thrown on the Portland
market. One day thirty tons arrived
in this city, where there is but little
demand. Aho large surplus is now
being shipped to San Franoiseo. but
tho venture rarely pays anything
more tnan tue express charges. Un
der the circumstances it is thought
that n number ot sturgeon fishermen
win retire trom tno business.
