The steamer Utopia took 100 tons of tin to the Point Roberts cannery from Se attle last week. The schooner Olga, 473 tons. Captain M. A Ipsen, sailed from Eureka June 8 for Honolulu, with 638,821 feet of red wood lumber, valued at J7.176.02. This is the third cargo this year and is the largest and most valuable ever shipped from (Humboldt to the Hawaiian islands A letter from Oaptuln Macomber of the whaling bark Lydia has been received In San Francisco, dated on Kodlak May 19, and reports that he had taken nothing. He also reports that he spoke on Kodlak, no dale, the whaling barks Alice Knowles, Mermaid and Andrew Hicks, having taken nothing at that time. CUptaln MoCallum of the British ship Kilbrannan, which arrived at Queens town June 1 from San Francisco, reports that the ship left Feb. 16 and followed In the track of the North Pacific Pilot Chart to considerable advantage, having beaten bll other vessels which left port about the time she did. The four-masted iron ship Euphrates 19U tons net register, belonging to Rob ert (Hill, Greenock, has been disposed of to Mr. Bowen, of Llangeliy, for 6,650 The Euphrates, which Is at present lying at Cork, where she discharged a cavgo of what from this city, was built by Henry Murray & Co., Port Glasgow, in 1879. . During the week ended June 16, 1895 the BureUu of Navigation assigned official numbers to the following Pacillc coast vessels: At San Francisco, sohoonoi Ameta V., gross tonnage 11.64, net 8.31 No. 107,169; at Astoria, schooner Jennie Hormor, gross tonnage 17.29, net 17.29 No. 77,187; at Seattle, sloop Maria, gross 6.70, net 6.70, No. 92,058. The American ship Manuel Llaguno which Balled lust month In a race against the ship Tillle Starbuck to Honolulu cane near being wrecked on the Faral lone Islands soon after the tug left her. She struck a strong current that set hei rapidly toward the rocks. Just at th moment of most danger a number 'of thi crew mutinied.- However, the trend o the ocean current swept the ship clear and the crew were driven Into submis sion. At Honolulu the men complained. to consul jrenera wans, wno aiier jieur lng the case reprimanded them and sen1 them back to their vessel. Hitherto the surveyor at Vancouver for the San Francisco- board of underwriters has declined to pass iron- vessels with sand ballast for lumber cargoes, thus put- ting iron and wooden' vessels on the same footing. The ship Earl of Hopeoun (Cap-; tain Hall), however, recently arrived in sand ballast from Valparaiso, rook e j stand, and refused to substitute stone for .aim. iu ..uaiigo mo uauaai nuuiu na,t cost about $800, without taking Into con sideration the necessary delay. The re sult is that sand ballast has been accept ed. And why not? In wooden vessels there is a danger of sand Interfering with the working of the pumps, but not so with iron vessels, and if a vessel gets a hole In her stone would not prevent her sinking any more than sand. Owners who have been unfortunate enough tc have such unnecessary outlUy inflicted on them will have the benefit of this precedent in future. Fairplay. The Oscar II arrived In Tacomi Satur day from Vladlvostock, Russian Siberia where she carried la. cargo of cement for the construction of the Trans-Siberian railway. Captain Anderson of the vssstf Bays that the construction f this railway Is being rapidly pushed, the czar of Rus sia having given orders to finish it us quickly as possible. As soon as thU line Is finished the Russian government Intends extending it from Vladlvostock southward to the Yellow sea, through Manchuria and Corea. In speaking ot the disturbed condition of affairs on the Asiatic coast, aa a result of the Japan Chinese war Captain Anderson said "The whole country looks like war anc the situation is considerably strained; but the peace element is hoping that th tension may be relieved and matter! settled without a resort to (arms. Russia has been secretly but actively at wort and in the event of trouble with Japar is prepared to hurl a formidable navy and land force into the coveted territory which Japan has wrested from China These ships and troops have been massec at Vladlvostock, where the scene is de cidedly warlike. The entrance to th harbor at Vladlvostock is planted full o, torpedoes, and - no vessels are allowec to pass in or out without Russfan naval officers or. board, as well as experienced Russian pilots who know where the tor pedoes are planted. My vessel was es corted in this manner both going in am coming out of the harbor. Inside th harbor the entire Pacific fleet of Russlar warships is massed,, ready to steum dowr the coast at a moment's notice. On Bhorc 80,000 troops have been concentrated and the evidence is clear that Russia is fully prepa.ed for trouble in case the Japanese give any occasion for It. The massing o these troops at Vladlvostock has been done secretly by Russia, unusual precau tions having been taken to prevent th spread of any intelligence regarding thf actual force she has quartered there. What Russia's designs are cannot, Oi course, be told and are purely conjec tural, but it Is clear that if she builds a railway line south from Vladlvostock to the Yellow sea her Intention is to ob tain an open port and hold it at all haz ards."

BEYOND POWER OF CONGRESS - To Cliangre the Enabling Act of Ore-g-on'8 Admission as a Stato Comprehensive Decision. Yesterday in the circuit court in- the case of the Astoria and Columbia River railroad vs. W. C. Parsons, the court ap pointed B. Q. Hegardt arbitrator to de termine the amount of damages. Tne suit of Wm. Kroling vs. Chas. Os good for work performed occupled-tne at tention of the Jury nearly all day and up to a late hour no decision- was rendered, In the mutter of f. Feakes' application for habeas corpus, case was dismissed. In the cases of the state vs. H. Matson and Chas. Wlken for lilegul fishing the court lined the defendants u0 each or 25 days' imprisonment In the county jail. In stating the decision the court ren dered the following opinion: In the Circuit Court of the State ot Ore gon, for Clatsop County; The Suite of Oregon vs. Chas. Wlken: In this case the defendant was indicted, tried and convicted of the offense of tak ing salmon by means of a fish trap or pound net, in the Columbia river during the weekly close season, that Is on Sun day. The statute -under which defendant was Indicted and convicted is "that It shall not be lawful to take or Ash for salmon In the Columbia River during the weekly close time," that Is, between six o'clock p. m. on Saturday and six o'clock p. m. on the following Sunday. It is not denied and was admitted on the trial that the defendant did so take salmon on the Columbia river within the time so prohibited by the laws of Oregon, and if the state has not exceeded its leg islative Jurisdiction, the defendant is guilty othe offense charged. It is agreed and admitted that the fishing for which defendant was indicted was done north of the middle channel of the Columbia River, and within the territorial boundaries of the state of Oregon, and the counsel for defendant contended that the laws of this suite have no force or effect In cases of this character, beyond the middle channel of the Columbia River. This presents to the court the important question as to the extent to which the state of Oregon can exercise concurrent Jurisdiction on the Columbia River. It is claimed' on behalf of the state that both states have full police power"! on tne Columbia river, and, that In to the exercise of such powers either state has full right to legislate and to enforce its legislation over the whole of that portion of the Columbia forming their common boundary. This claim hus constantly been assisted and exercised by the legislature and the courts of this state ever since the admission of Oregon Into the Union and to some extent It has also been exercised by the courts of the adjoining commonwealth, ' and it is on ly since the indiscriminate and reckless fishing for salmon have threatened the entire extinction cf that great industry and evoked' somewhat vigorous efforts for its protection, that any considerable protest has been made against -the exer cise by our courts of criminal Jurisdic tion over the whole river. Oregon's claim of Jurisdiction is founded upon the act of congress admitting It in to the Union. At that time WUshlngton was still a territory, a mere creature of congressional legislation. It was wholly competent .for congress to take from, or give to, such territory any powers of leg islation as it might see fit. Congress could alter Its boundaries, regulate its Jurisdiction at its own pleasure, even to the extent of entirely abolishing, if it chose, the territorial government, or of annexing or parcelling it out among ad jacent states or territories. At this time and under these circum stances Oregon was admitted ir.to the Union, and by the act of admission, Or egon's boundaries and Jurisdiction upon the Columbia river were firmly establish ed upon the Columbia river, . boyond the power of congress to change, because it is elementary, that congress cannot, with out the consent of a state, withdraw from, or repeal the compact by which such state becomes a member of tjxe Union. To concede the power of congress to alter or la-mend such compact without the consent of the state would be to con cede that It had power to expel a state from the Union by repealing the act of admission, a doctrine as repugnant to our national Idea, as th'at of the right of a state to violate the compact and secede. In the light of these universally admit ted principles, let us examine the act of admission, the sacred and irrepeaiaoie compact between this state and the other states of the Union. Section 1 of said act defines Oregon's boundaries: After bringing the west boundary line north to a point due west and opposite the middle of the north ship channel of the Columbia river, it continues as follows: "Thence easterly to and up the middle channel of said river, etc." (tracing the north boundary) "Including Jurisdiction In civil and crim inal cases upon the Columbia and Snake river concurrently with states and ter ritories of which these rivers form a boundary in common with this state." 11th U. 8. Statutes at Large, 383. This is substantially saying that the boundary between Ortgon and Washing ton shall be the middle channel of the Columbia river, except that for the pur poses of civil and criminal Jurisdiction both states shall have a common right over the whole river. It is an exception Inserted in the very clause that defines the boundaries, and means practically that for the purposes mentioned the boun dary of Oregon shall be the north shore land, the boundary of Washington the south shore, .But as if to emphasize this construc tion and make it so plain that the way faring man need not err therein. Section 2 f said act provides further: "The said state of Oregon shall have concur rent Jurisdiction on the Columbia river and the waters thereof and all other riv ers and waters bordering on the said state of Oregon, so far as the same shall form a common boundary to said state and any other state, or states, now, or hereafter to be formed, or bounded by the same." What plainer language than this could possibly have been employed: ."Concur rent Jurisdiction on the. Columbia ond. the waters thereof." To dispute Oregon's concurrent Jurisdic tion, in the face of this language, is scarcely excusable. And the eminent counsel for the de fendant in this case hive never disputed the Jurisdiction of this state on all the waters of the -Columbia river, in respect to things floating upon or navigating such waters. It s not dnled that any person fishing with a floating net on the Washington side of the channel would be amenable to our laws. But It is contended that as In this case the trap j m'l by driving . stakes firmly down Into the river bed ana at-, tachlng the netting thereto, such trap became part-of the soil of Washington and not affected by our legislation and that the words "on the river and the' waters thereof," mean floating on -the water. . I cannot assent to a view of the law which makes a fisherman a criminal while drifting along with the current on Sun day s.nd converts him Into a law-abiding citizen the moment tils net happens to catch on a snag on the Washington side of the channel. The Jurisdiction is both upon the river and upon the waters of the river. What is a river as defined by law? "Every river consists of first, the bed; second, the water; third, the banks or shores." Gould on Waters Sec. 41. "A fresh water river, like a tidal river, Is composed of the alveus, or bed, and the water, but has banks Instead of shores." Gould on Waters, Sec' 46. "A water course consists of bed, banks and water." Angel on Water Courses, 8;c. 4. - Homk on Rivers, Sec. 6. I cite these definitions to show that the word river in Its legal sense Includes the soil constituting Its b?d, as well as the water flowing over the bed; so that when the act of congress granted concurrent jurisdiction on the Columbia river and its waters It drew the distinction that the text books draw and substantally gave the state such Jurisdiction not only on the water but ovar the river itself in cluding that component part of the river known as its bed. And this view Is supported by the decisions of other states. The act admitting Iowa into the Union provided that said state should have con current Jurisdiction with Illinois upon the Mississippi river.. The act is hardly so broad as our act ot admission, land leaves more room for construction as to the extent of the Jurisdiction conferred. In the case of the state of Iowa vs. Mullen defendant occupied a scow as a place of evil resort, and was Indicted for main taining a nuisance. The boat was on the east, or Illinois side of the river, and east of the middle channel analso east of an Island belonging to the state of Illinois. The boat had floated against a sand bar of said island, and the reced ing water left It high and dry on the sands. The court held that although ly ing upon, the sands it was "upon the river," within the intent of the act of admission and that the courts ot Iowa had Jurisdiction to indict and try the defendant. And this view was upheld by the supreme court in an exhaustive opin ion. State vs. Mullen, 35 Iowa, 199. The court among other things says: "Does the fact that the boat at the time of Indictment and trial was on the east side of the main channel of the river resting temporarily on the rear of the Island because the water had receded from it, or for repairs, take it out of the jurisdiction of this state? It seems to us clearly that it 'does not. In the eye of the law a crime committed on the boat under the circumstances stated is as much an offense perpetrated on the river as though the vessel were at the time afloat. If It Is not so, It follows that a vessel navigating the main channel of this Mis sissippi should run aground east of the main channel, and the water should re cede leaving It upon the ground tempo rarily, the state of Iowa would have no Jurisdiction of a crime committed on it under such circumstances and hence would arise the questions so difficult of determination and which it was the pur pose of the act of congress to avoid, whether the act was committed one foot east or west of the medium fllum aquae." These reasons deemed so cogent by the supreme court of Iowa apply with equal force to the Columbia river, land to this case. The sections of our admission act here tofore cited were intended to enable the people of either state to protect their ci tizens and property upon the river and to preserve the fish which are the common property of the citizens of both states, The Columbia is, and was at the date of Oregon's admission known to be a river of changing channels and of shift ing sands, sometimes appearing at the surface and sometimes forming shallows below the surface. To determine whether a trap was lo cated north or south of where a partic ular channel existed when Oregon was adlmteed In 19 would be practically Impossible 1n a criminal or even a civil action. Each trial would require a new survey of the ever changing channels and constantly shifting sand banks of the river. Congress Intended to prevent this, and the language employed is adequate for that purpose. The following authori ties support the view here expressed: State vs. Mullen, supra. Gilbert vs. Mollne, etc., 19 Iowa, 319. The Annie M. Smull, 6 Sawyer. 12 Ency. Law, 208. Admx. vs. Judd, 30 Minn., 12$. Keator, L. E., vs. St. Croix Co., 38 N. W. Rep., 529. And the list might be extended Indefi nitely. But it Is urged that If such concurrent Jurisdiction Is upheld the state of Wash ington can legislate In regard to the docks at Astoria, and the state of Ore gon can legislate in regard to the docks at Ilwaco and Oathlamet. If this were true it could furnish no argument against the plain letter of the law; but such is not a logical result. Docks, unlike fish traps and such struct ures as the one in question are built from the main land Into the river land when built form artificial shores partaking of the natural shores of which they are ex tensions. This distinction is noted and pointed out In state vs. Mullen, hereto fore cited. In R. R. Co. vs. Ward, 2nd Black 485, the action was to abate a dam projected from the Illinois side of the Mississippi. It was held that the dam being attached to the main shore became part of the realty of the state and not subject to the Jurisdiction of Iowa. 2nd block 486. Gilbert vs. Mollne, 19 Iowa 319. The trap Is no extension from the main shore and does not partake of the nature of an artificial shore, like a dock or dam. Another contention Is that the words "concurrent Jurisdiction" by the two states Imports that both states must unite In legislation touching offenses com mitted on the river; that neither state can by itself legislate for the whole river; that the word "concurrent" means acting or legislating together. This contention has been refuted by the courts In a large number of cases: Keaton vs. St. Croix, 38 N W 642. State vs. Plants, 26 West Va, 119. Kendall vs. United States, 12 Peters 623. Sherlock vs. Ailing, 44 Ind. 184. In the case first above cited the Wis consin supreme court says: "Are the words 'concurrent jurisdiction' as thus used to be .construed as requiring the Joint assent of both states to such charter or could Minnesota do so alone with a corresponding right on the part of Wisconsin- to grant a similar charter? If such Joint action was necessary to give such validity then the mere failure of one state to act would wholly prevent the exercise of any Jurisdiction by either state. 'Concurrent jurisdiction' ttre words to two or more courts. When so applied no one has ever contended that lis ex ercise by one court was dependant upqn its exercise by any other court. The same Is true concerning offenses and torts committed upon a- river dividing two states, where the courts of each hive Jurisdiction of the same, for insuch case each court must necessarily act separ ately. Such Jurisdiction extends to the whole of that portion of the river divid ing them." And In reference to the right of either state to legislate separately over the whole of such boundary river, the same court is equally emphatic and clear; I quote from the same case: - "Although the words 'concurrent Juris diction' ore usually applied to the right ful authoilty of courts yet they are not limited to such use; on the contrary thry are broid enough to embrace also the ex ercise of both legislative and executive power." And in the Indiana case above cited the court uses this language: "This state possesses concurrent Jurisdiction with Kentucky on the river where the cajse of action arose. The Jurisdiction may be exercised lm any manner which the state shall elect. This Jurisdiction Is not limited to the service of process, it is general Including the right of legisla tion touching all civil and criminal cades onthe river. It Is not limited to Judicial proceedings in civil and criminal casts. It Is such as the state may choose oto exercise touching such actions, and legis lation is Included." The additional objection that the traps are licensed by the laws of Washington and that this license Is a protection and defense In this cage need only to be briefly noticed. When this license law was passed the Oregon Sunday laws were in full force and the defendent took his license sub ject to their provisions. Such laws no more conflict with the license laws than our laws requiring saloons to be closed on Sunday conflicts with the rights ob tained under or by virtue of a liquor license. The laws of Oregon prohibit Sun day -fishing; the laws of Washington are now silent on the subject, she having re. pealed her Sunday law. Here Is no conflict, and there has been none, neither will there be any eltner between the legislatures or the courts of the two states. This is a question of law to be settled by law, and so far there has been no protest from any quarter except from those who in their haste to acquire gain from the fishing industry, would blindly destroy the very source ot such gain, which this court seeks to protect In the interest of the people of both states and under a Jurisdiction clearly given it by the laws of the United States and of this state. In view of the fact that the defend ant has voluntarily submitted to the Jurisdiction of this court land has no doubt acted In good faith, believing that he had a right to do the act for which he was Indicted, I will impose the lowest penalty prescribed by law, but having now fully stated the views that In my Judgment fully authorize this court to take Jurisdiction of this class of cases, I shall not feel called upon to show a like leniency In case of future infractions of the law.
