STREETS and3 Attractions TV THE WEEK. wa 1 LUU1IM The President Officially Nomi nates Olney and Harmon. INCOMPETENCY IS ALLEGED To Be the Cause of the Colinia Wreck The Washunaw Safe Roseate Trade Reports. Washington, June 7. The president this afternoon announced the following cab inet appointments: Secretary of state, Richard OIncy, of Massachusetts; attor ney general, Judon Harmon, of Cincin nati, Ohio. Mr. Harmont has been for a long time Judge of the common pleas court and Is a man about 60 years of age, one of the, most" conspicuous lawyers In the West, and upon the retirement of ex-Govemo Hoadley from his Cincinnati firm, upon his removal to New . York, Harmon took his place at the head of the firm' of. Har mon, Colstone, Goldsmith and Hoadley, the last named being a son of ex-Governor Hoadley, of Ohio. ! DUN'S WEEKLY. New York, June 7. Dun & Co.'s weekly Review of Trade will say:: The trend of business Is rising, even as It was falling two years ago, with sur prising rnpidity. The gain has gone so far and so fast In some branches that the more conservative fear It may not be maintained. But the period of dullness which comes In each market after an unusual rise brings as yet nothing Ilka a corresponding decline, industries gain much, halt or fall back a little, and then eain one more. The demand for con. sumption is Bteadily Increasing as the employment and wages of the people In crease. The demand for money Increases, one bank reporting 29 per cent larger In discounts for the country, and another 23 per cent more commercial loans than a year ago, and all but two report some gain. The serious question remains whether the crop will be good enough to sustain the large business. Reports are better by far than the estimates recently currant. Wheat rose 2 cents, fell back 2 cents, with realizing, and has risen again three cents with a western estl- mode of a crop 01 W.im.m busneis smai lpp than Inst vear. The failures for the week were' 196 In the United States against 216 last year, and 35 In Canada against 40 last year. BRADSTREET'S REPORT. New York, June 7. Bradstreet's will say tomorrow: The speculative spirit which seemed to dominate both the com mercial and financial circles until with in a week or ten days past, is still less conspicuous In all lines. The demand for staple goods, In a numher or in. stances, Is smaller, notably at Boston, nttsburg, Chicago, and Kansis City, particularly in dry goods, the demand for which In first and secona nanus, nas declined, as Is customary at this period. While business throughout the country may be designated as quieter, the tone of staples continues strong, and confi dence in a good demand, when the rail season opens, remains unabated. The feature of the week, as heretofore, Is the continued long list of advances in prices, notably those for iron and steel, and the upward movement of bank clearings. Statistics show a decrease 6f over 17,000, 0X1 bushels In the available stock of wheat In the United States and Canada, during May. Heavier shipments of wheat to Europe, with the Increasing available stocks there, made dealers nave conn- 'dence in the permanency of ai higher range of prices for wheat. AVERAGE CROP OF HOPS. San Francisco, June 7. J. C. Bauer, one of the oldest hop dealers In the city, has just returned from a trip that took In all the Pacific Coast states and lirtt Ish Columbia. Ne says that in the hop growln? regions of Oregon and Washing ton, the crop looks well, barring some mould In the Washington yards. "Th? price is so low," said Mr. Bauer, "that In a great many yards hops will not be picked at all this year. There was a big crop In Europe last year, and ever since the price has been low all over the world. "The price now is from 3 to 5 cents for medium, and for choice, 7 to 3 cents. Choice hops are not plenty in the mar ket. England takes 50,000 bales every year from us and the East about the same. The coast consumption of hops Is about 8,000 bales. An average crop for Oregon, Washington and California, with all the yards producing, would b about 150,000 bales. I think there will be that much this year, unless something happens to the crop. I think there will be a better price for the new crop." ALLOWED TO CARRY THEM. San Francisco, June 7. The executlvs committee of the Fourth or July cele bration committee has, in answer to a communication. Informed the local so. clety of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians that It may carry In the procession the flag known as the green flag of Ire' land, ir miae into tne lorm or a nanner, suspended from "cross poles and lettered as a banner of a fraternal order, with rut conflicting with the resolution that no flags other than the stars and stripes will be allowed to be carried. 5 ' CHINA THANKFUL TO THE U. B. Washington, June 7. The Chinese mln. later here, in company with acting Sec retary Uhl, accompanied by his secreta ry of the lezatlon and interpreter, wait ed in person on the president today and presented to him a lettjr from the Em peror of China thanking him in graceful terms for the kindly offices exercised by the United States in behalf of the res. toratlon of peace . between China and Japan, ' INCOMPETENCY ALLEGED. San Francisco; June 7. Oustav Rowan, one of the survivors of the Colima, has sent a communication to the Call, in which he says: ."I want to make ai statement now, if yuu will allow m to do so. You can find out that what I say Is true rf you will see the other men picked up. Soma of them VM not dare to tell the trutJJ, as they hav been promised money to keep still. Tha Colima was lost because she was badly handled, byofflcers with out capacity and bad men, when the gale struck us. When I saw that the shin was going to sink I went after life preservers and commenced to give them out to the passengers, but the steward told me .to let them alono and ordered me forward. I was saved because 1 got a life preserver, and if others had been allowed to get them too, many would have been saved with me." THE OFFICERS' STORY. San Francisco, June l.-The United States Inspectors of boilers and hulls commenced an official examination Into ths Colima disaster today. . Third Officer Hansen said that ho had superintended the stowing of the cargo and that the work had been well dome and that the cargo had not shifted. If the Colima had not been a ' good boat he thought she would not have weathered the storm as long as she did. He believes the wreck was entirely due to the violence of the storm. TWO DECLINED TO GO. Salt Lake, Jun 7. A special to the Herald from Butte, Mont., says: The Butte Chamber of Commerce Invi tation to Senators Carter and Mantle and Congressman Hartman to represent Mon tana at the Memphis silver convention has been accepted only by Mr. Hartman. Carter did not reply to the Invitation, and Mantle returned to Butte today. He Bays his private business will detain him at home all summer. THE WASHUNAW SAFE. San Francisco. June 7.

Manchester, England, June 7. iFlorlzel, II, owned by the Prince of Wales, won the Manchester cup today against a large field, which included M. F. Dwyer's Ban quet II. THE TALK OF THE DAY. The postoffice in India not only collects and dehvers letters, parcels and ottur articles, but acts to a certain extent as a banker to the general public, sells quinine and salt, pays military pensions, and collects the revenue accruing to the government from land ai:d other sourccsj But to the fertile brain of one of the oldest olficers in the department Is due the latest development In the work of the postollice. The Punjab postoillca has come forward as an eiementary teachur. It not only colltcts letters and delivers them, but teaches boys In eleinentary schools how to write them and address the covers. Ready 'wit Is one of the essentials to desk-room at the capital, and In this con nection 1 might relate an anecdote con cerning a gentleman who is is Atlanta today. I refrain from g.ving his name, taking for granted that he has seen ths error of his ways since he passed out from the elevating influences of the city editor. In the early days our friend was on the local stait of a Cincinnati paper. He was detailed to report a revival meet ing, and was busily engaged in taking notes when one of the sisters approached him and suggested that he should go up In front and take a seat on tho anxious bench. "Madam," he replied, "you see, I am sent here by my paper. I am busy, and I really cannot spare the time." "But, brother," urged the good lady, "do you not remember the story of the fishermen of Galilee, how they kft their nets and all else to follow the Master?" "I know the story," replied the unre generate knight of the quill, "but there is a great difference, my dear madam. Those fishermen were not working for John R. McLean." Atlanta Journal, .t , A lawyer in Australia was defending a voune man whose, record was mnioaor ous. Ignoring the record, however, the lawyer proceeded to draw a harrowing picture of two gray-haired parents in England looking anxiously for tfie re turn of their prodigal son to ipend the next Christmas with them, ana lie aker. "Had they the hearts to deprlva the old couple of this happlneff?" The Jury, however, being heartless men, found th prisoner guilty. Before passlntr sentence the Judge called for the prisoners Jail record, after examining which he blandly remarked that the "prisoner had some five previous convictions against him, but h was ar ad to say that Mr. s eio. puent appeal would not . remain unan swered, for he would commit the prisoner to Maltland (New South Wales) Jail where his aged parents at the present moment were srvih aw.iice rttpect. ively, so that father, mother and son would be able to spena tne ensuing Christmas season undr one. roof," j nrnnnirni. nnxin t Weekly Salmon Report Shows An Upward Tendency. THE HATCHET IS BURIED Discount Trouhlts Are Over-Chl-nooks Magnificent, But Blue- . ' Backs Are Scarce. . Astoria. Ore., 10 p. m., 7th Juno, 1893. Today, we are glad to be able to report that the forward shipments of Columbia river salmon to all large centres have reached their normal , condition. No traces now remain of tardiness in orders, and demands are coming in at such a rate that catiners are taxed to get goods ready for shipment on time. During the last seven days 36 carloads, containing 14,000 cases, have been dispatched to various eastern points, and in the coming week shipments will run thirty to' forty per cent higher. The principal feature to report since our last statement, has been the rapid closing up of all old stocks In New York, Chicago, Baltimore, Phlla dolphla, and St. Louis, and It is doubtful if these five . cities now hold between them a thousand cases of last year's first class goods. This state of affairs has caused a big rush of peremptory de mands on the; Jobbers and through them on the packers, who are doing their ut most to pieet the call. It has had the dffect also, very noticeable everywhere, of stiffening prices, more particularly for flat can We quote today as follows: Columbia River standard brands, straight chlnooks,. $1.35 to $1.4216 tor talis and $1.5214 to $1.75Vj for fl.its. Ovals nave shown Blgns of climbing higher In two or three quarters and now run from $1.3514 to J1.9&V,, .sales of these, goods averaging over the $1.80 mark. Keys on all goods 6 cents to 7'j cents txtra. Ovals for for elgn shipment are quoted at $2.03 to $2.10, less S per cent. ' Our correspondents' reports from all quarters show a dearth of new goods everywhere. New York will probably receive this . year more Columbia River salmon than she has has accepted for some seasons. The demand in 'Chicago is steady, with fncllnatians among big buyers to take goods at firm and advancing prices. During the past week the Alaska Packers' ' Association has placed x considerable quantity of goods for foreign shipment at from 90 cents to 924 cents per dozen. The Sacra mento river packers have felt the in creasing foreign sales and nearly 4,000 cases had been shipped to Europe up to Wednesday from California. It is rumored today , that the Alaska Packers' association is opening a big market In Australia for cheap trash, at cut prices, and soin trla' shipments have already gone forward to that country from San Francisco. On the Froser river, packing will be begun before our next report, and everything points to a slack year. The absence of blucbacks In the Columbia is an Indicator in this direction. Fraser rivar packers will soon be in the middle of a fight with foreign jobbers, which may develop some Interesting situations before they get through. There seems to be a tendency to distrust on both sides concerning tho fluctuations In the price of the British Columbia product. Opera Hons la this city for the past week have been steady. The run of chlnooks since Saturday has averaged fifteen fish to the boat, and while the catch has not been extraordinary for this time of year, it has been uniformly good, and has closed the first week's continuous run s.nce the seiBon opened. Blueibocks are very slack, and many of the canneri are beginning to doubt; their ability to fill orders for this class of goods If the present state of affairs keeps up. The biueback run Is now two weeks overdue, and to put It plainly has been to date a flit failure. At the Cascades and The Dalles very little is doing. Several of the wheels are still out of the water, and those that are fishing find no bluebacki to pack. The steelhead run is due in a few weeks and these fish are already appearing, seemingly pointing to a good catch as the season advances. The Chi nooks this year are magnificent, and are unusually fat. The average weight at present is fully 'Ji pounds, and several of them are scaling 60 pounds.' From this (Ime to the 20th of the month the largest fish or the season, will appear. -The middle river canneries are all doing fair ly well and prospects there have bright ened somewhat during the- past seven days. With excellent receipts at this end of the season the total sck will not be able to reach last year's figures, and everything points to the correctness of our deduction that the Columbia will be DO.000 cases short for 1895. Yesterday Highest of all ia Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report active work was started by the cannery, men, combined for the purpose, in the erection of a large salmon hatchery on, the Upper Clackamas river, which runs into the ColunVbla, This movement on the part of the packers has met with universal approval all over Oregon, aad is bound in the next three or four years to have a perceptible effect on the size of. the annual pack. The discount trouble has ceased entirely and canners unite in stating to us that tho hatchet has been burled. 11 any of the packers are giving the 1VG per cent cash, terms they are dis creetly silent on the subject, while the majority are contented with a well earn ed victory and don't fall to say so.
