ALONG THE WATER FRONT.
The following most Interesting state
ment Is taken from a report of the
superintendent of the Franor river yalmon
hatchery. It will toe reid wlthi interest
by many Astorians: "On the 21st of
September 'I sent men with the neces
sary mt&terials to Morris creek, Harrison
river, to build a trap and make the neces
sary preparations for capturing parent
s.ilmon and collecting ova. On the 2nd
of October the first lot of ov.i, 1,341.000
was received at the hatchery; on the 6th,
U8.00O; on the 11th, 1,02-1,000; on the 16th,
2.1H,000; on the 20th, 848,000 and on the
2Hh the last lot of 944,000; making a
total of G.7S2,000 ova, all of the sockeye
variety. The parent fish were all cap
tured In a trap constructed of pickets
4 feet long, IM..XI14 Inches, with spaces
of l'i inches between the pickets; the
trap was 12 ifeet square, having a V
shaped entrance. Adjoining the upper
end of this trap a pound or trap of a
similar size ancF construction was built.
The salmon entered the trip several days
liefcre their ova was fully ripened, and
in order to give them more room, and
also to facilitate handling them for strip
ping, the males were lifted In dip-nts
r.nd transferred to the pound. Gill-nets
were used formerly for catching the par
ent fish, but I have dispensed -with them
altogether, and in my opinion the ova
is in a better condition and hatches with
a, smaller percentage of loss when ob
tained from fish whle"i have entered the
trap of their own accord and there is no
loss of parent fish, whi:h is unavoidable
when they are netted In gill or drift-nets.
Die numlber of female salmon was 2,220;
they gave an average of 3,500 ova each;
for fertilizing these ova it took from
1,200 to 1,400 males. The parent fish male
and females when liberated appeared to
but little affectel by the operation
'amd confinement in the pounds. The
csgs in the hatchery are in prime con
dition; the number of dead eggs are less
than in any previous season In my ex
perience at this date."
Colonel Z. S. Spaulding, one of the
assenjrers by the Australia, says Fri
day's Call, Is on his way to "Washington
to lay the matter of a cable between
Honolulu and San Francisco before the
next congress. On the 12th Inst. President
Dole laid before both houses of the Ha
waiian legislature a contract made with
Colonel Spalding to grant a subsidy and
exclusive franchise in return for the
laying of the cable. The matter went
over till the chamber of commerce couid
ho hoard. Several members of the cham
ber objected to an exclusive franchise,
and spoke strongly against, but a small
majority were In favor of the cable, hold
ing that the government . must agree to
those conditions If the line was laid.
The next day the legislature ratified the
contract after a spirited opposition on
the part of those who thought the con
cessions too strong. The annual subsidy
was fixed at $40,000. The franchise Is for
a period of twenty years, but tho grant
shall not prevent any foreign government
having existing treaty rights with the
Hawaiian republic from landin? a cable
upon the islands from any point on the
North American continent. The twenty
years' subsidy of $10,000 is to begin from
the date of telegraphic communication
between Honolulu and a point at or near
San Francisco and the IslanJs of Ha
waii, Moiokal, Maui and KauaJ, and the
money to bo paid In nu-irterly Install
ments of $10,000 each. Colonel Spalding
will make a proposition to the next con
gress asking fur an annual subsidy from
tho United States government of $0,000.
Th,e work on the cable mu?t begin by
May 1, 1897, and be completed by Novem
ber 1, 1898, or the contract will be void
If Spalding fails to get assistance from
the United States the Hawaiian govern
ment may cancel the contract. The cable
company will be exempt from port
charges, taxes and duty jpon material
In addition to other Important privileges.
The telegraphic rates on other than gov
ernment mesaiges will not exceed $1 per
The run of soekeye salmon In the
Fraser river this year has to some ex
tent upset the calculations of many in
terested in this staple product of the
waters of the provlnca. It was antici
pated by some of those engaged in the
canning Industry that 1895 would prove
an off year, and apparently this expecta
tion found practical expression In a some
what limited preparation for the year's
pack. It has bten freely stated that
some of the canneries have already run
short of cans, so if this be so, it seems
to be a fact thit a comparatively small
run of fish was looked for. The run
commenced eariy and has not yet ceasjd.
At the time of writing the fish are not
numerous, the immense run of a week
earlier being over, but as there are a
few days to piss ere the fifhlng season,
closes, this is but in accordance iwith
the experience which led to the r.pproxl
mation of the time when the run may be
rxpected to fall off. Much has been said
shout the smallno?s of the season's aver
age catch per boat, but in miking com
parisons -with that of earlier years, the
very material increase of the number
of nets cast has frequently, if not gener
ally, been lost sight of. No ac lount is
usually taken of the fact th;it an pggre
gate catch which would give 1,500 boats
100 fish per day, would only give 65 each
to a fleet of 2,300 boats. So it seems
the daily reports of the average catch
per boat are unreliable for purposes of
comparison of agrsgate catch with that
of other year. The more trustworthy
comparative views would be that obtain
able from the yearly returns showing
the numlber of cases packed. For the cur
rent year the actual number Is not yet
ascertained, but a careful estimate places
the total of the Fnser river pack for
the season, to date, at between 280 000
and 300.000 cases, and allows a margin of
from 25,000 to GO.OOO cases as the addi
tional pack to the close of the season
That is to fay, the 1S95 pack of the
Fraser river canneries will be between
."25,(1(10 and 350,000 cases, but the figures
cannot be verified until the returns,
showing the actual number, are received
by the fisheries department. The flsh
(rtnen have benefited this year in reBpect
of prices paid for the fUfx. It Is to be
hoped that the canners, too, will find
an active market at remunerative rates.
In addition to the fish canned there has
been an Increased quantity of frozen
salmoi. sent away, some by rail to east
ern markets in Canila and the United
Slates, and some by the Canadian-Aun-trallan
steamers consigned to France,
England and Australia. From 2OT.0O0 to
OO.OiO pounds appears to be a moderate
esilmate of the quantity thus disposed of
t;l cason. An increase In this trade
may be looked for.

MOONLIGHT ON THE BEACH
One of Turner's Landscapes ViviHed
-Fishing; and Pigeon Shooting'
Engage the Men.
The season at Clatsop beaches, now on
the wane, has been a most successful one.
The weather has been exceptionally fine,
the bathing good, the crowds have been
large, and the special excursions and
dances have been most orderly and well
conducted. Last week was one of the
heaviest In years, but from now on
tho attendance will begin to thin out,
as It Is albout time for the children to
return to school, As a matter of fact,
however, September Is the pleasantest
month at the seaside. The weather Is
usually finer, the fishing In the Necannl
cum better, and outdoor life then reaches
Its highest enjoyment. The wornout man
can without let or hindrance, get near
to nature and breathe In fresh strength
for the long winter's battle.
The dance Saturday evening at Gil
bert's pavilion, Seaeide, attracted a large
crowd iwho tripped the light fantastic
until 12:30. The music was good and all
had a jolly time. The grove at Seuslde Is
full of campers, and the cottages are
still occupied. Many hundreds were in
the surf during the week and those who
have been at the coast for somo little
time unite in saying tnnt the dally bath
in the surf Is most Invigorating.
Sunday afteriuon Meat. E. C and
H. M. Hughes returned from a fishing
trip eight miles up the Necannicum and
displayed the dm.st gasket of trout seen
this season. T.iere were many of the
speckled be.vilk'-.! weighing from half a
pound to two and ono-half pounds. Mr.
H. M. Hughes had the distinction of
catching the largest llsh of the lot.

Thursday made up a luncheon party for
a drive to the wreck of the .Cairns

Messrs. McLean, Hansen and Crosby.
A very pleasant time was had and the
gentlemen enjoyed the good things pre
pared by tho ladles. Other drives are

The champion tennis game of the sea
son was played on Wednesday by Prof.
Brecce and Miss Theresa Clark against
the Rev. John Morrison and Miss Minnie
Bell, The first set looked rather du
bious for the latter teim, but they re
trieved their losses In the second. Time
being called before the rubber was fin
is'hcd, the umpire declared the game a
draw. Mr. Wilfred Trevors and Mr.
Sanford Kramer had a walking match on
Wednesday from eGarhirt to Grimes'
over the railroad track, Although Tre
vors arrived, first at the goal time, 20
minutes Kramer claimed that the match
should be a draw, as It was impossible
for either of them to arrive first, as
every step was a tie.
Little Dollie Watt, aged six or seven,
very nearly lost her life on Thursday
whho hunting crabs. The tide was low
and Dollie, with others, was hunting over
the sands for a catch when she espied
a fine large crab In one of the numerous
holes In the sand which the ebb tide
leaves filled with water, and where Mr.
Crablet likes to hide. She made a dash
Into tho pool, which sesmed to be shallow
Iiko many others, but she went down over
her head in the water, where sho re
mained some two minutes before being
rescued. She was carried to the hotel,
where every effort w,as made for her res
toration by her friends and relatives, and
finally consciousness was restored. It
was a narrow escape and the nearest ap
proach to a tragedy at Gearhart this
A tug race on the creek was announced
and It was reported about that Manager
Barmore would be one of the contestants,
which had the effect of bringing out the
entire population, but they were doomed
to disappointment, as Mr. B. was not
looking through that pair of spectacles.
bunday at Gearhart was one of those
beautiful days Which are more thoroush
ly enjoyed because they do not come so
frequently as to be an old story. The
air yas delightful, quite clear for August,
"with Just enough breeze to make It
pleasant. A particularly pretty sight was
the view of the natural parks which line
the Necannicum for miles. The stream
Winds about through meadow and grove
which in the bright sunlight and blue air,
with the bunches of cattle grazing here
and there, or standing In some shady
pool quietly chewing the cud, made one
feel that a landscape of Turner's had
been brought to life and the dreams of
the artist fully realized.
In the evening the new moon sent its
rays across the Pacific and illuminated
the beach until the scene became one
from fairyland and the silver-tipped
waves seemed to be lapping agalnBt the
shores of other climes where all Is beau
ty, symctry and perfection; where the
discordant notes of every day life are
transformed Into harmony; where all Is
love and peace and the sweetness of the
new life has dawned on eairtii.
The ship James Drummond, which last
week drifted cjose Inshore andi was res
cued by the tug Relief, was plainly seen
from- Gearhart, and caused no little
amount of speculation as to the causo
of her visit. i
There is good pigeon shooting at the
Park, and many are taking advantage of
the opportunity for a hunt.
W. J. Clemens and family closed their
cottaijre and returned to Portland Mon
day. Fern Camp was broken up Monday
and Mrs. J. T. Ross andi family returned
to the city. Other campers are booked to
arrive lu beautiful September, and while
the rush Is nearly over the hotels will do
a comfortable touolness during September,
as this is the month most enjoyed by
all true lovers of nature.
Manager Barmore and his corps of ef
ficient assistants at Gearhart have made
an enviable reputation and one and all
have expressed the hope that they may
have the popular resort In charge next
season. Always smiling, always kind to
the little ones, always trying to do some
thing to make things . pleasant for his
quests, Mr. Barmore will be remembered
hy hosts who enjoyed his hospitality.
Gearhart will probably remain open dur

ing been decided upon, and It will not
be clcsed soon If the present run keeps
up. Among the arrivals last week at

"With the several noteworty repairs
fresh In mind that have of late been
made and described In the case of broken
down machinery at sea, it is interesting
to recall an experience of older standing
which occurred on a steamer in eastern
waters a number of years ago and which
is quite as illustrative of ready engineer
ing expedients as any of later date. On
the Ship In question while going at full
speed, the engine suddenly gave a loud
crack, as If something had burst, ana
tlen came to a stop. The chief engineer
hurried Into the engine room and exam'
ined everything, without finding any
cause for the accident. The valve oas.
lngs, too, were Inspected, without any
clue to the trouble, but on taking oft
the low pressure cylinder cover, a hole
was discovered In tho side of the cylinder,
measuring about three feet square, and
the pieces of metal from the wail were
found lying on the top of the piston. The
weather being squally no time was to
bo lost, and the happy idea occurred to
the chief engineer to mike a wooden
patch, which he proceeded to do first by
getting a piece of wood two inches thick
and six Inches wide, which he j.ut be
tween the jackets and the cylinder face,
bedding It close at both ends and holding
It by means of countersunk screws
through the cylinder face. Six such
pieces were put In and secured In this
way, and then some hardwood was used
to make the recess still ren.ilnlng flush
with the working face of the cylinder,
the hardwood being screwed to the six
Inch pieces first mentioned. Only seven
hours was taken up In making the In
genious repair and the cylinder cover be
ing put back In iplaco the engines were
tried with albout 4C pounds of steam,
and were afiowed to work at half speed
until the steamer was brought B.afely Into
'It is not generally known," said a
Tacoma shipper to a News reporter,
"that the Seminole Is one of the oldest
vessels in the carrying trade of the Pa
cific coast, but such Is a fact. I re
member her very well when she ran be
tween New York and Sin Francisco In
tho early 60's, and, If I remember correct
ly, Harbormaster Cllft, of this city, made
bis last trip .before the mast on her. He
shipped from New York to 'Frisco and
return, I believe, In the year 1W1. No,
she don't look much like she did then.
In those days she was considered one of
the fastest ships In the business, and
she was full-rigged, with an enormous
canvas carrying capacity. Since then
she has been bark-rigged and her en
tire rig Is much lighter than when she
was a ship. Old Joneph Warren Holmes
was ber master, and I recollect, took a
great pride In his. ship, which at that
time was really a very fine vessel."
The steamer Bailey Gatzert which left
up for Portland at 7 o'clock yesterday
morning, went asJiore in the smoke and
fog about 300 yards above Bay View, on
a sandy rise on the right side of the
channel. She was in no danger and aii
lier passengers remained aboard her. It
was expected that she would nave float
ed off st high water last night. As toon
as word was brought down to tnls city
on the afternoon boats,' Mr. ritoni tele
graphed to tho Portland office of the
company, notifying them of the oocur
ence." The steamer 'Elmore arrived in yestr
ik afternoon from Tli'.amovk with six
tonr of fine dairy butter.
