' The Fishermen and the Traps. The attempt of Messrs. Kinney, Mc Gowan and Johansen to have fish-trap piles driven near Sand Island on Tues day last Is still n source of subdued excitement among, the lislierm. :i, nnd although they are quiet, the men say no traps shall be constructed at the point In question. Last year the piles for two traps were driven on the south west side of Sand Island for tii Mc Gowan Cannery, but since then, the ennners claim, a great change has taken place In the channel, and now at low tide there Is only a few Inches of water between the spit and the south side of Sand Island. It 1 also claimed for the Cannery men that for this reason boats do not cross this sand belt, but Instead go to the north and westward of the point In dispute. Some of the fishermen were Inter viewed yesterday on the subject, and expressed themselvta In vigorous language, condemning the attempt to put In traps near the Repub lic spit. .Said one: "If a boat is swamped In the breakers near the spit, the occupants have a possible show to savo themselves If the beach is un obstructed, but If the Intention of the eannerymen, as shown by their action on Tuesday, should ba carried out, and boats upset to the eastward of that point, the men would Invariably get Into the traps, where " they would certainly drown. In addition to this, thero would be no chance of sav ing gear, as lt would be torn to pieces on the piles. In fact," he con cluded, "the only chance the flHhermen have to save their lives when upset above the Republic spit is to keep traps from being constructed, and we are determined that our lives will not be wantonly sacrificed." , Another of the members of the Fish ermen's Union, said that the attitude of the fishermen on this question was shown plainly In 1891, when an attempt was nuide to put traps In near tho scene of Tuesday's occurrence, nnd was frustrated. "The ground," said lie, "that Messrs. "Kinney, McGowan and Johansen wanted to gain posses sion of If. the only drift left on that ride eveept on tho rplt, and If the v.'t.u!i-r is rough U as iiiui.li as a -' life is worth to go there. The piles would cloae this dilct up, nna would simply be the cause of the death of dozens of men. It we cannot get in toward tho shallow water en ns to per mit the nets to urag, mere m m un- fishing at that portion of the bay, ntid the eannerymen certainly hnvo enouKh of Baker's Bay already." The Manzanlta arrived In at 10 o'clock lust night from a cruise of In spection down the coast. She left Ya: quina bay yesterday morning at 10:SO and passed in over the bar Just at dark. On account of tho great numuer of fish boats that. are careless In keep ing up their signal lights, the Man.a tilta was compelled to steam in at a very slow speeu. ijiuuiciuur a. . lllish, U. S. N. accompanied the tinder on her southern trip, and a thorough Inspection was made of Cape Blanco and Arngo lighthouses, nnd buoys off the C'oqullle, Sluslaw, Alw-a, and Yn qulnu. Captain Gregory states that they passed tho Augusta on Friday last off Nehnlem, but at that time she was steaming north all right, with the El more ahead of her some dlHtunoe. They had fair weather the whole week, until today, when heavy squally weather was met from the south and west. The Manzanlta will go .to the supply depot this morning. z The' report of the Board of Street AKHeiaiir8, consisting of City Surveyor Harry,' Mr. J. II. Mrtnsell and Mr. Wm. B.
