The American Revenue Outtor Seizes a British Schooner. SKIllOl H . TROUBLE ANTICIPATED. An Intimation that the American Prize Crewi Will lie Overpowered and Brought to Victoria. Victoria, July 29.- The greatest ex citement prevails among those interested in the Beallng industry. The British schooner Triumph arrived from Behring sea this afternoon with news of the cap ture by the American cutter of the British schooner Black Diamond in Behring sea. The Triumph entered Behring sea July 11; on the 13th it was sighted by the revenue cutter Rush, whose captain boarded and informed Captain McLean he had orders to seize any schooners found taking seals in Beh ring sea. The Triumph, not having taken any, was allowed to depart. The commander of the Rush informed Cap tain.McLean that two days previous, he had captured the Black Diamond, with 130 skins. A prize crew was put aboard her and she was sent to Ounalaska. The Diamond is owned by Gmtnian & Frank, of this city, and is valued at about $10, 000, The Triumph contridered it better to leave for Victoria. Sealers are fighting and trouble is an ticipated. ' ine cutter 'only has crew enough to put two or three aboard the seized schooners leaviifg the captain of the ehooier in change. Tlio schoouors will be immediately re-siezedand headed for Victoria, American prize crew and all. Here they will be handed over to the naval authorities to deal with the matter. Will have further particulars tomorrow. , , The Triumph has 800 skins. The news of the capture has caused great ex citemeiit, and further news is anxiously looked for. Some of the vessels have tough crews aboard, and trouble is al most ceitain. 1 Special Kates on Wheat. San 1'kancisco, July 28. lhe new chairman of the Transcontinental Asso ciation yesterday telegraphed the gen eral freight agent of the Union Pacific, in this city that a special rate on east bound carload shipments of wheat is to be made similar to the rate on barley This means.60 cents per 100 pounds to the Missouri rivr, 02)2 cents to St. Louis, C5 cents to Chicago, and 69)2 to Cincinnati. It is the first low rate ever made on California wheat to east ern points, and has been brought about, it is said, at the special request of east ern millers. They have recognized the excellent quality of Pacific coost wheat, but the freight rates haye operated against their milling it to advantage. The talk on the street now is that the Southern Pacific will accept no compro mise on the Canadian competition ques tion, and as a natural sequence a rate war ia a fruitlul topic of discussion.

The Smallest Republic. This is not San Marino, 1101 Andorra, nor Moresnet, but the tiny republic of Goust, in the Pyrenees, which contains less than one hundred inhabitants, all of whom are romanists. The sole occupation of these people is the weaving of wool and silk. Their government consists of an assembly of old men, calied the council. They pay no taxes or imposts of any kind, and therefore have need of no collectors. They have neither mayor, priest nor physician. They baptize their children, bury their dead and perform their mar riage ceremonies all beyond the boun daries of the town, or in the neighbor ing villagejof Laruns. If any one wishes to spouse a wife he must go away from home to find her. Among the peaceful residents of this microscopic republic are several centen arians. No one is really poor, and none is rich. The language which they speak is a mixture of French and Spanish, and their numbers, manners and customs have remained unchanged for several centuries. THE FISH INDUSTRY. A Cod Bank Discovered off the Mouth of the Nestncca. OCR III V Kits TO BK RESTOCKED. Arrival of Members of the Govern men Fish Commission Their Plans for Oiegon and California. Washington,' July 26. The fish com mission has been advised of reports of the discovery of a cod bank, on the Pa; cific coast, eight miles offNestucca, Oi sixty-five miles south of the Columbi river. The same advices state that true cod haye never before been found south of Puget sound. Contrary to this, Acting Commissioner Rathburn savs that true cod are reported a9 far south as the Farrallone islands the fishing grounds of San Francisco but have not been found south of Puget sound in sufficient quantities for com mercial purposes. the fish commission. San Francisco, July 26. United States Fish Commissoner McDonald and Assistant Commissioner O'Connor arrived today from the east on a tour of the various coast fisheries. It is the first time the commission has eyer been west of Denver. The commissioner says he proposes to restock the Columbia river again, and the Sacramento river, California, witfi salmon, so that in five years the catch -will bo as great as iorineriy. The commissioner and assistant leave for the Baird station Tuesday next They will there make some improve ments, for which congress has appropri ated $4000, and will then proceed to Oregon and Washington. Commissioner McDonald, in an inter yiew this evening, says : "It is my firm belief that the supply of salmon can be increased again, so .that in five years there will be just as many and the catch will be just as great as formerly. The conditions must; however, be as favor able as they once were. What we want now is the complete co-operation of the states through their lish commissions, as far as possible, to keep the rivers pure and stock them with more fry. That is all that is necessary. Once it was thought that the salmon supply of the Columbia and Sacramento would never give out. Now Pacific coast people are getting a vast annual pack from Alaska and are saving the same thing of hsh there. Probabiy they are nearly right about that, but at any rate we want to stock up, not only these two great riyers but the Clackamas, Santiam, Pitt, and other rivers. The distinct work now is to extend the artificial production of salmon. We have one station now on the McCloud river and another on the Clackamas that together last year pro duced about 11,000,000 salmon eggs The idea now is to enlarge these hatch' eries so as to net a erreater supply. Sal mon is to you what shad is to the East. The shad supply there ran low in 1880. and the commission began stocking streams with eegs. In 1883 the catch was increased over that of the year 1880 by $750,000 worth of shad. This shows what can be done. One thing I would like to emphasize, the value and perma nence of the results of fish culture will depend essentially on the regulation and protection of the fisheries by state laws. Tf the fish are not permitted to return to tbeir spawning grounds, or it the condi tions are unfavorable for spawning, the work will be retarded." CONDENSED TELEGRAMS. The south bound passenger run through a burnt bridge near Riparia Fri day. The engine and baggage car fell in the chasm, but the coaches staid on the track. Engineer George C.

Twenty years of his life he spent as a soldier and he fought against the first Napoleon in several famous battles. Early in life he was crossed in love and has been a misogy nist ever since. He has used tobacco 101 yeais and has indulged more or less in beer oid wine. He is in perfect health, has all his faculties and can re call events of his childhood readily. He likes to gossip and his conversation is very entertaining. No More Revenue Collectors. A Portland man has received a letter from Washington which throws some light on what President Harrison will say in his message to congress on the question of taxes. The writer, who is an Indiana congressman, called at the White House to urge the appointment of a friend to be a collector of internal revenue. "I would gladly appoint your friend," said the President, "but he would not hold the place very long." "Why not?" asked the congressman. "There will be no internal revenue collectors after a few months. Their duties will be so lessened that it will bi no longer necessary to maintain the office. Hereafter, the United States marshals will do all the collecting there is to be done." The letter concludes as follows: 'From the conyersation with the Presi dent I inferred that he will recommend the removal ot the internal revenue tax on whisky and tobaccp, the collection of which is the principal duty of revenue collectors. Both branches of congress being Republican, the President's re commendation will be speedily acted upon." 9 W. C. Johnson has been appointed special assistant United States attorney to co-operate with District Attorney Me Arthur in preparing bills in equity and trying the suits he has been instructed to begin against The Dalles, Eugene and Lebanon Military Wagon Road Com- panies for the forfeiture of the lands granted to these companies under var ious acts of congress, which suits were authorized by act of congress of March 1889. The lands comprise some 2,500,000 acres, all of which is now in the hands of third parties, Mayor Pond of San Francisco being a principal owner. Southern Pacific Employes Discharged.
