SOCKEYES ARE
RUNNING STRONG
Vancouver, July, 23���Fishermen
working the gulf last night from
Fraser river canneries got fairly
good catches, indicating that the
run is getting closer to the river
while reports from Vancouver Island and the traps on the American
side indicate that there is a big
run of fish. It may be a day or
two yet before fishing in the gulf
will yield very good returns, and it
will probably be well on to the end
of the week before the fish enter
the river, but the advance guard
is well on the way and prospects
for big catches within few days are
very bright.
Reports received are as follows:
Imperial cannery, boats averaged
20 yesterday, about 50 boats delivered.
Vancouver cannery, boats averaged 33, from (30 boats. High boat
51.
St. Mungo cannery. 44 boats
averaged 25.
Ewen's cannery, 50 boats averaged 15.    Not many this morning.
Brunswick, British America,
Richmond and Scottish Canadian,
boats ran from 15 to 40. High
boat at Scotish Canadian 54.
From Bellingham comes the report that 14,000 were gathered from
all traps yesterday, 7,000 from
Boundary bay, 300 from Lummi
and balance from the gulf. At
Anacc-rtes, 5,000 were delivered
from, the traps.
A Port Townsend despatch states
that fish are running strong on the
v.'est coast of Vancouver Island, the
traps there getting an average of
4000 fish each.
AEROGRAM NEWS-Princess May
News to Ship Direct by United Wireless
C. Francis, Opr.
Houston, Tex., July 23���The
storms which, have been visiting
their fury upon Texas have at last
subsided, and now the work of
counting the dead and estimating
the property losses is under way.
Twenty three bodies of the dead
have been discovered so far and it
is estimated that not more than a
half dozen remain unaccounted for.
Many of the smaller towns are
practically destroyed and ruin
marks the whole coast line and
extends a hundred miles into the
interior,
Three storms have followed
each other in rapid succession and
wrought damage until the people
were driven into a frenzy of terror.
The loss of property estimated is
enormous. Today things are getting normal and general prayers of
thanks are going up.
Seattle, July 23.���Tho steamer
Nerthuiestern will sail tomorrow
and have among her passengers
125 members of the National Editorial Association which has been
in convention here. They will
cruise in Southeastern Alaska and
will leturn in ubont a month.
ADVOCATE LAWS
LIMITING FISHERS
Bellingham, July, 24.���"If the
commission find upon an examination of the fishing gear, the traps
and the several methods of extermination, that one or all species of
fish are running out, stringent laws
limiting the catch of fish will be
written out and commended to
governors interested. If the methods in vogue are not exterminating
the fish, liberal laws only will be
drawn."
H. R. Stolz, David Starr Jordan's private secretary and secretary of tho international commission, thus spoke of the work of the
distinguished commission that left
this morning for a trip among the
fish traps on Puget sound. Ed. E.
Prince, who represents Canada on
the commission Pccompanied the
party.
"We find many things we would
like to do," said Mr. Prince, "but
we are held back because the international treaty does not empower
this commission to deal with
them."
Mr. Prince touched lightly on
the differences that are constantly
springing up as a result of Americans fishing in Canadian waters.
The waste of Valuable fish that are
being used for bate, he said was
deplorable and some day would be
stopped.
Washington, July 23���Senator

third venire has been issued for
talesmen in the Colheun Crickery

GREAT SHOOTING
'Yes, sir,' said old Braggard, 'as
see them birds I went into the
house and took down the old
blunderbuss and pegged at them
and by gorry ! I brought down
thutty birds at one shot. Can you
beat that ?'
'Ya-as,' drawled Uncle Pea very.
'Ye know Hill Wiggins' frog pond?
'Yes,' said the old Braggard.
'What of it?'
'Wa-al. I went down there the
other night after sundown to shoot
a couple of bull frogs with my old
shotgun,' Said Uncle P���. 'There
were 5000 of them sitting on them
there lily pads, and I just lifted
that there gun to my shoulder and
let go.'
'S'pose ye did,' said the old Braggard, 'How does that affect rrfy
bird story?'
'Beats it all to holler,' returned
Uncle. 'The minute my gun went
off the hull derned 5000 bull frogs
broked.'
SOCKEYES RUN
GOOD ON NAAS
There is great disappoinment on
the Skeena River among the salmon men at the failure of the
sockeyes to make their appearance
On the Naas river they are running well and good hauls are being
made. The Skeena men are preparing to take to the Naas if the
fish do not show up soon. The
chances are that the sockeys will
change to the Skeena.
The St. Dennis took down to
Vancouver 5000 cases, a carload uf
which was sent inland. The Blue
Funnel liner Teucer now at Evans-
Colman Wharf, Vancouver will
take the first shipment to Liverpool via the Suez canal.

AN EXCITING EXPERIENCE
What might have been a sad
fatality, was turned into mere experience by the promptness of Capt
Noel, of the Chieftian.
On Sunday 25th inst. whilts two
fishermen were fiishing off Cassiar,
a sudden scmall struck their boat
with such force that it was overturned, precipitating the men into
the water. The "Chieftain" happened to be within calling distance
at the time, and the Captain taking the situation in at a glance,
promptly turned the "Chieftain"
round, and with full speed ahead
made for the struggling men. The
"Chieftain" seemed to know what
had happened, and what was expected of her for she bounded
along at such a gay pace that it
sent a thrill of suppressed excitement through the passengers, who
happened to be on board.
The men were eventually got on
board and brought with their boat
into port.

INDIANS MEET ON LAND QUESTION
A meeting was held here on Saturday July 24, at 8 p. m. in the
Band Workers' Hal), the proceedings of which were confined to the
hearing of the complaints and demands of the Indians in the Skeena
district. The meeting was called
by Commissioner Stewart from
Ottawa and Superintendent of Indian Affairs Vowell of Victoria, who
had been sent by their respective
governments to inquire into the
complaints.
The Indians seemed surprised
that the Commissioner and Super,
had only come to listen to their
complaints, and in a very emphatic
way told them so, stating that they
were expecting an answer to their
petition which had been taken by
them at a great deal of trouble and
expense to Ottawa and given into
the hands of Sir Wilfred Lauricr
himself, they therefore expected an
answer and not an inquiry.
After considerable parley things
were apparently satisfactorily explained.
There was about two hundred
Indians and thirteen chiefs present
three of which were appointed
by the Indians as spokesmen for
them, each spokesman practically
repeating what the first one put
forth. They seated that the land
belonged to them by heredity and
that the whites had taken it from
them without either conquest or
remuneration, and demanded that
they either give back their land
or give them remuneration. They
do not seem to realize that although
their separate claims arc not much
individually, hut collectively would
mean the entire Province. When
asked by a reporter whether they
wanted the land back so that they
could go back to their old tribal
laws and customs, Chief Legaic,
who is the chief of chiefs of all the
tribes, smilingly replied "Certainly
not, wc are not heathens, we are
tin educated people. Neither do
we want the white people to clear
out, but want them to pay for
the land they have taken and are
taking from us right along."
The kick seems to come from a
few Chiefs and Princes who have
not been accostomed to working
for themselves, but have to do so
now the white men are in possession. The stiring speeches ended
with "We want our land back, and
wc mean to agitate from now on
until something is done, even if it
takes generations."
MONTREAL LOAN IS
CRITICIZED IN LONDON
[Vancouver  World]
London, July 23.���Under1 the
heading " Montreal Offends the
City," the Mail, in speaking of the
refusal of the recent tenders for the
Montreal loan of $2,250,000, says
the explanation for the refusal
-ecms to lie that the tenders were
insufficient to cover the loan but
that explanation is not regarded by
the city as satisfactory. Friends
of Montreal in London, whose
bpinion   undoubtedly   commands
the highest respect, are expressing
regret over the shortsightedness
shown by Montreal in the matter.
Conducting its financial affairs
in such manner as to evoke criticism need not perhaps reflect upon
Canadian municipal credit, but it
is ifjverthelcss ono of those regrettable incidents which should not be
allowed to occur to mar the serenity
of Canadian financial arrangements.
WOMAN OWNER 0E
STEAMERS IS SMUGGLER
New York July 24���Mrs. Fremont Chesbro, owner of the Ches-
bro Coastwise line of steamers
running out of Boston, has been
indicted for smuggling by the
federal grand jury. The indictment has been placed in the hands
of the United States district attorney for the district of New Jersey,
following the discovery of a false
bottom in one of the trunks brought
to this country on the Kaiser Wilhelm last May by Mrs. Chesbro.
In the secret department wen
found wearing apparel worth several thousand dollars, and bills and
invoices indicting the purchase
abroad of a pearl necklace valued
at $23,000.
MINNIE SHARBENA'S
MURDERER CAUGHT
Leavenworth, Kans., July 24.���
Private Charles O'Neal, who killed
Minnie Sharbena, with whom he
was in love, near Fort Leavenworth, is in custody today. He
was captured late yesterday in
Lake Merritt, where he threatned
to drown himself, by Private Wm.
Osthuyser of the Fifteenth cavalry.
Miss Sharbena was employed as
a maid in the house of Captain
Charles Murphy. Jealousy is said
to have been the motive for O'Neal's
crime.
After the killing, O'Neal fled
from the post, going in the direction of Lake Merritt. When
discovered by Osthuyser, he waded
to his neck in the water and
threatned to drown himself. Osthuyser persuaded him to give
himself up, and brought him to
this city.
GREAT STRIKE IS

London, July 23.���The Miners'

YOUNG TURKS OUST
LOAFERS FROM OFFICE
Constantinople, July 21.���It is
announced that '27,000 officers and
officials will be dismissed or retired on pension by the retrenchment scheme of the new government
These include the hundreds of
hangers on at Turkish ministries
and the followers of the late sultan.
Who area little army in themselves.
Of late years the monthly pay
list of the treasury has swollen to
nearly $1,000,000,'
In all departments there were at
least three and four men to do the
work of one; but in many cfises ten
and more officials were employed
where there was barely work for
one.
Thus at the ministry of public
works there were nearly a thousam,
clerks, where a hundred would
have been amply sufficient. So
great was the overcrowding thai
there was never room for all to be
present at the 6ame time, and the
clerks therefor used to divide into
batches* which relieved each other
weekly;
MISSING BANDIT
IS NOW KNOWN
Katnloops, July 24.^-The police
are now devoting much effort to
detective work in connection with
I ie chase after the train robbers
ulio held up the C. P. R. express
at Ducks. Detectives have been al
work for some time around Ash-
croft and other places and they
arc meeting with splendid success
in the matter of clearing lip the
records of the dead robber as well
as the man who killed Constable
Decker,
It has now been established thai
the bandit murderer was a brother
of Haney, the dead robber, and the
two were well known California
outlaws, who fled from the state
some time ago leaving behind them
a gruesome trail of crime.
While the man hunt has been
abandoned) the detectives are now
running down the records of the
Haney brothers all over tlie ebun-
try and they are confident that
sooner or later they will land the
triurderef. Through him they hope
to ascertain-the name of the third
member of the [.arty. The police
tire now confident that four men
ivere connected with Ihe holdup at
Ducks.
McArthur's Emporium has just
received 500 pounds of Weyman's

Madrid, July 24���The government today ordered that 40,000

Jeffries and Jack Johnson failed to
ine'et here yesterday, according to
the schedule outlined by their
representative, Jeffries was at the
appointed place, but Johnson did
not leave his training camp in Indiana until late in the day and
said he would not meet Jeffries.
Jeffries issued a signed statement
later, in which he said :
"In view of the many conflicting
reports regarding my intentions, 1
will make my plans public as
follows:
"At the conclusion of my theatrical contract, which will be July
25, I will sail for Europe for a two
or three week's visit to Carlsbad.
Before sailing I will post my forfeit
to meet Johnson before the club
offering the best inducements and
best situated to hold the contest.
,'Sam Berger, who will act as my
pugilistic manager, will remain
over here and consider all offers
for the fight, and will have all the
details in readiness for final signature when I return. I sincerely
hope my action will quiet the
doubts of those who questioned the
sincerity of my intentions."
In another statement Jeffries
said:
''I have made a compact with the
public to fight Johnson. It is my
duty to re-establish white supremacy in pugilism. When I finish
my theatrical tour I shall announce
my plans for fighting Johnson.
"The white public need not fear
the outcome. I am not now as
good a man physically as I was
when 1 fought Fit/.simmons, but I
do not need to be to whip Johnson.
His present possession of the title
is due to an accident and a dearth
of fighters of the heavyweight class.
Johnson's managers may get all
the advertising they can out of
follwing m< arouud the country
an<! flaunting cheques at me.
When ray engagement ends I'll
appoint a time atid a place and
name fair terms. Then Johnson
