CAUSE OF THE (SCARCITY. The General Effect on Market Prices Has Been Very Perceptible In . AH Marffe Centres. From the Chicago Tribune. There Is dismay among the 2,000 or more men engaged In the fishing Industry In this port over the remarkable disappear' ance of the finny tribe from the waters of Lake Mlshlgan. There have been a dozen to twenty steam tugs and 200 sailboats employed in fishing near Chicago, and most of them have abandoned the work What has become of the fish Is a mystery to the local fishermen, though various theories are advanced to account for their disappearance. So far as Chicago is concerned the catch this spring Is so far below that of pre' vlous seasons as to put the balance on the wrong side of the ledger. J. H, Brunjis, owner of the fishing tug Sun beam, which has all winter raised nets set for trout, white fish and perch, said yesterday he had taken up his nets and placed the boat In the excursion business two weeks ago because the catch would not pay for the fuel consumed on the tug, Mr. Brunjes Bald: "I don't know what has become of the fish, but I know they are not around here and that there la no money in looking after them. When I quit fishing two weeks ago I had eighty nets set. The average catch dally for the whole num ber of nets was not more than 300 pounds, and sometimes I would not get fifty pounds. A year ago I used to gei from 100 to 200 pounds in each net, making 4 catch of 8,000 to 16,000 pounds daily. The catch this spring would not pay for fuel to say nothing about wages and the wear and tear on twine." Mr. Brunjes was asked whether the scarcity of llsn was merely local or ex tended to all ports of the lake, and re plied: "Well, I'm told by the A.- Booth Packing company and the Connable Fish company, both of which keep tnree or IWr nuss empioyea in iis.iiiig 111 waters north ot here, tnat they do not caicii enougn to pay expenses. 1 see by We newspapers tiiat tne fishing tugs at St. Josepn and Benton harour anu other points on tne east Biiore nave been miu up, so I suppose there are not tisn euiougu onytvuere to pay lor u.e c-vicius. Mr. Brunjes said the tugs Bice, Claribel, Sunbeam aud Unarm had ail gone out of tne nsning business and' were cater ing tor excursion trade. Captain Davis of the Claribel, he Said, had ueoarcU lie would never fish again. "It Is a puzzling task," . said Mr. Brunjes, "to attempt to account lor tne scarcity of lish. I thina the round nets around the piers hts something to do with It. Hundreds of these nets are raised every few minuses ana tucy p.c up many small fry tihait are not fit for food or anything else, but which are thrown out and left to die on the piers. Perch come to the shore every year to spawn. In the winter they keep In the deep water. When they come to shore to spawn t'hey are caughit In pound nets In this way not only the fish are caught but their eges,whloh have not been de posited, are destroyed. I think the fish commlsloners should take the matter In hand and that a law should be passed prohibiting fishing during the spawning season. "So far this season the fishermen have caught only herring and perch. In former years they caught profitable quantities of whiteflsh and trout. This spring no trout have been caught and only a few whjteflsh. Such perch as havasrbeen raised have been small. A good many perch and herring, few of them more than two or three Inches long, have been caught around the piers, They should all be thrown back Into the water, but they are allowed to die. "This sort of work doubtless has some effect on the fish supply, but whether it accounts for the whole matter is more than I know. I have been told that most i'f the Ash In the western rivers were killed last winter by the severe cold. It Is said the ice formation was so un usual that not enough air got Into the water to keep the fish alive. It is said by some of the men engaged In fishing that the fish have been driven away from the vicinity of Chicago by the sewerage emptied Into the lake. There are plenty of causes assigned, but the only thing we know positively about It Is the effect, and that Is that the fish have gone else where." Notwithstanding the scarcity the price of fish has not advanced as much as might be expected. The quotadlcm at present Is 2, lt, and 3 cents a pound for perch and "herring and a year ago when the supply was plenty the price was l'j to 2 cents. THE GREATNESS OF THE PACIFIC. New York Sun. In the year 1832 "William H. Seward, from his place in the senate, made this remarkable prophecy touching the for eign relations of the United States: Henceforth European commerce, Euro pean politics, European thought and European activity, although actually be coming more Intimate, will nevertheless relatively sink In Importance; while the Pacific ocean. Its shores, its Islands and the vast region beyond will become the chief theatre of events In the world's hereafter." The boldness of this prediction may be appreciated better on recalling what the Pacific shores and regions then were. What Europe was, with its prodigious commerce. Its railway systems. Us tele graphs and its productions, and bow its enormoua activities were supplemented on this side of the Atlantic we all know. But In 1850 there'was In this country not a single telegraph line west of MJsslslppI, nor mora than eighty miles of railroad; not until 18t7 was there regular steamship c-rvlce between San Francisco and Asia. California had. Indeed, just been added to our union In 1K2, but It was like a col lection of mining camps with coast em poriums, and bad a population of 90,000. Between It and Missouri stretched a wilderness. China had tut recently be:n forced to open a few ports, and Japan was still a sealed mystery. The Pacific Islands were left mostly to savages and adventurous missionaries, or were calling stations for whalers and traders. 1 The extraordinary changes that have occurred In this scene during the last two score years have prompted Mr. L, A. Thurston, who, as minister from Ha waii, has recently fallen under the dis favor of Messrs. Cleveland ond Grosham, to some timely observations In the pages ot the North American Review. Even more than statesmen like, Webster, Marcy and Seward saw looomlng In the distance ts now at hand. Japan is In the march with modern nations; Australia Is "the commercial wonder of the nineteenth century"; Alaska is United States terri tory, while Hawaii, then known mostly as the place where Captain Cook was killed, is a republic, preparing herself to enter our union. The population of the United States west of the Rocky mountains is today over 2,500,000, or nearly that of the thlr. teen colonies whan the declaration was signed. The lumber, the grain and the fruit of th'a Pacific states go all over the world. California alone mined one-third of the gold product of the United States in 1S93, and, according to Mr. Thurston, stands third in the list of railroad owner ship, proportioned to the population, while Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York stand first, second and fourth. In the ten years ending In 1894, while the ships of the Atlantic and Gulf states de creased 710 in number and 135,000 In ton nage, those of the Pacifle coast Increased 499 In number and 131,690 In tonnage. Mexico and Central and South America show some progress in the period re viewed, but with the coming growth of the Pacific will doubtless show much more. British Columbia, the terminus of a continental railway, has developed from obscurity to commercial importance and takes pride in four lines of transpacific steamers, and a total of 246 vessels regis tered for foreign trade. Australia, first settled by white men in 1788, had a population of 3,784,000 In 1890 and a for eign commerce ot $012,500,000. Its annual wool clip exceeding $100,000,000 and an an nual coal production Of nearly 4,000,000 tons; It produced (35,000,000 Of gold in 1893, or nearly one-fourth of the world's productln. Its live stock alone Is valued at about (330,000,000, and In 1893 It entered and cleared nearly 18,000,000 tons of ship ping from foreign pons. The wonders of Japan's progress are now before all eyes. That country, which had no railroads in 1870 and but 75 miles in 1S80, pssessed 1.T50, miles In thfe year 1893 and carried 25,790,000 passei gers; it had no telegraphs In 1870, and 9,000 miles of them In 1893; while in the latter year its exports and imports ag gregated $112,000,000. . Cnlna that same year had $422,600,000 of exports and im ports In seventeen out of the twenty ports opem to frelgn trade, and her modern de velopment has only begun . Siberia con tains a million square miles more than all Europe, and Us southern border is in the latitude of Cape Cod and Chicago. It already produces one-sixth of the world's output of gold, and, with Us rail road to. St. Petersburg completed, must have a great development. Eastern Si beria Is a land of vast resources. And what of the Islands of the Pacific? England, Germany, France and Spain have seized most of them, but the Ha' wailan group Is thus far preserved from European clutches. Manila alone has a foreign trade of $16,000,000 a year; Ha waii has reached $16,000,000 and Honolulu enjoys the distinction "of having entered more ships flying the American flag than were entered at any other foreign port In the world during 1893." Alaska Is an American Siberia, of vast resources In minerals, lumber and fisheries yet to be developed. Mr. Thurston points out the part that steamship and telegraph subsidies axe playing In the development of the Fa. clllc. In 1893 Australia paid $350,000 as subsidies and guarantees to ocean oable companies, and up to that year she had paid $2,995,000 to the cable between Aus tralia and India. For "steamship and cable communication in or to the Pa cific," mostly steamship, paid by the British and colonial governments, Mr, Thurston reckons up an aggregate of over $3,760,000. In aid of the Canadian Pacific company's project to establish a line of 20-knot 10,000-ton steamers In order to reduce to twenty-six days the time be tween London and Australia, via Mon treal In summer and Halifax in winter, Canada has offered an Increase of $750,000 a year on her existing subsidy, and New England $50,006. With the Nicaragua canal and the trans Siberia railroad completed, and with railways on the Pacific slope stretch ing from Alaska to Chile, Mr. Thurston forsees an enormous growth for Pacific commerce ten or fifteen years hence. Steamers like those of the Atlantic will ply between the main ports with Hono lulu the cnter of a cable system radiat ing to Tahiti, Australia, Japan, Vancou ver and San Francisco. Let us hope that our own country will not be checked or barred by any blun dtfrs or Ignorance of statesmanship from laving Its full share of this giant growth, or from .occupying' the proper vantage grounds for its protection and control. , Tide Table for May, 1 89J BIOS WATU.

The worm Is about fburt'een Inches long and Is perfect from 'lead to tall. The head, which Is about half an Inch in diameter, Is supplied with i central sucker surrounded by a hard "hdl In two segments. The sucker ena. bles the teredo to hold fast to the wood while it operates the segments of shell 'o cut away the material ahead of It The til ,1s convoluted and bifurcated, ind has two appendages, which exictiy resemble the qullla of a bird's tall. These appendages project from the hole where the teredo effect's his er.trance and (he worm consequently Is always as long as thj hole ho makes, as a necessity evident 'y exists for keeping his communication ipen. The main portion of the teredo is Tothlng but a pulpy marai, and It Is a vonder how such a low organization can be made bo effective In penetrating the hard wood of Washington yellow fir. Tha Waterway Company has some speci mens of wood 'iflii't were put down last October near the Stetson & Post rpwmlll, xnd are now so completely perforated In very direction that they may be erum oied in the hand like a piece of empty Honeycomb. When the pieces were brouglut the teredoes were gtlll alive and 'hey continued to live for 48 hours aft r the wood had been out of water. Th.' alls of the worms projected from the !o'.'es, and, when touched, the teredo would draw them in. These specimens of wood were bolted together, thus re futing the tlheory that tredoes will not pass a crack or seam. In these specimens the holes are so (hick that the spaces between them are only as thick as paper, and ther Is no room for any more holes." Several residents of Astoria possess pieces if piling that have been standing In the Columbia River for 40 years, and which now are as firm and solid as the day they were driven Into the Band. .
