PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 1. Rose
burg News: Selfish Interests are
seeking to 'kill the Willamette river
bill; claiming that if bill is sustained
by vote of the people the price ol
food flBh will be higher. This Is not
true, as the bill Is an economic mens
lire to keep alive the salmon fisheries
of OreEon.
The Willamette, river Is the only
stream, which can give adlquate sal
mon egg supply for our hatcheries.
If the voters want to maintain and
build up the salmon fishing In
austry of tnis state, amounting to
more than seven million dollars this
year, more than fifty per cent of
which was paia ,to the fishermen
themselves, they should vote three
hundred six yes.
