COMMITTEE TO ASK ITS- AID
Celd-Water Advocates Desire to Pre
sent-a Solid Front to the Enemy
and Prevent Amendment of
Local Option Law.
To strike terror Into the hearts ol liquor
hosts, to exult over recent reverses of the
rum demon, to. spur officers of the law
toward enforcement of the "dry" edict,
and to smooth the way for rapproche
ment with the Anti-Saloon League and
other local option forces which Jumped
the track in the election November 8,
bright gems of the prohibition diadem in
Oregon gathered Into a cluster at the Y.
M. C. A. Monday and shed their com
bined effulgence on many matters and
Some 40 brethren were there, represent
ing the counties of linn, Yamhill, Benton,
Clackamas, Multnomah, Sherman and
Polk, while a dozen or more absent spirits
were present by letter.
Yesterday morning the conference was
resumed, and financial matters were discussed.-
About $6000 had been expended In
the state and Presidential elections.
Had it been wise to force the issue of
county prohibition? res, the gentlemen
believed that action to have been "logi
cal and consistent," hence they adopted a
resolution to that effect with one of the
loudest noises that they had emitted for
many a day. However, they regretted
that the question had been so misunder
stood in Multnomah County as to split
the forces that had worked for the local
option law last June.
Ought prohibition now to be enforced
in dry counties and precincts? ares, in
deed, and officers sworn to enforce the
law should not be suffered to forget their
oath. Prohis in each .county should see
to It that the "dry" mandate .was carried
out wherever it was ordained.
The gentlemen thought It would be well
for the political health of the lawmakers
to put on the brakes when approaohing
the question of amending the law at the
next legislative session. If the solons are
not looking for trouble they would bettor
give the law a fair trial as it stands,
thought the brethren. "Whereat they voted
a very stern "No" to the proposition of
Not feeling themselves strong enough
to defend the law against Its enemies all
alone, the cold-water advocates decided
to Invite to their aid other organizations
such as the Anti-Saloon League. To that
end a committee of seven members was
appointed to draw nigh the erstwhile al
lies of prohibition and bridge the gulf that
has yawned on the hither side of the lat
ter domains. The committee consists of
the following stalwarts: I. H. Amos, F,
McKercher. T. S. McDanlel. J. P. Newell,
H. "W. Stone and B. Lee Paget, of Port-
land, and W. P. Elmore, of Brownsville.
The Anti-Saloon League was charily
handled, for the gentlemen dreaded Its
ire: they discussed the effect of the
league's attitude on the " party vote;
the league's disposition In each coun
ty toward the Prohi party; . the proper
attitude of Individual Prohis toward the
league, and how that body might be in
duced again to jog along the Prohi road
with them. One 61 the most witty breth

SALMON IS THE THEME
FISH ARE BEING DISCUSSED BY
Prolongation 'f Clsced Season AbV
cated as Means af Increasing Egg
Supply in Hatcheries,
Do salmon propagated at Ontario hatch
ery enter the Columbia River from, thq
sea in May and June, or in June anc(
July? Master Fish Warden Van Dusen
says May and, june.; but Strong evidence
has been adduced to prove July and Au
gust. Tho truth , U sf value In determining
what better arrangement could be made
for open and closed seasons. Prolonga
tion pf the closed season from April 15 to
May 15 has been advocated as a means pf
Increasing the supply of eggs at Ontario,
but if the saljnon patched there do not
come In from the sea until June and July
that would evidently be futile.
This year one-sixth as many eggs will
be taken at Ontario as 'were expected. In
July the lower Columbia was fished un
usually clean ot salmon. Were the sal
mon needed at Ontario caught in July?
Mr. Van Dusen lias contended that to
reach spawning, grounds at the customary
time, Ontario salmon enter the Columbia
in May and June. Senator Fulton, adopt
ing this theory, has proposed that the
open season begin May 15 and not April
The Ontario hatchery, built by the State,
Is the largest of Its Tdnd In the' world. It
can receive 30,000,060 eggs ever' season.
On Jt the fisheries have relied in large,
measure for sajvatlon of the Industry. It
was built to restore the early run's of
salmon, for other hatcheries have been
working on the late Tuns, with the re
sult that salmon have been coming In
from the sea later each season, If, there
fore, the Ontario hatchery Is propagating
late fish, the same as the other hatcheries,
serious disappointment is sure to result.
The. Grand Rondo Station is 650 miles
from the sea; Ontario 716. At the former,
most of the eggs are taken between Sep-?
tember 13 and October u, according to
Page 117 of Mr. Van Dusen's report for
1901-2. But at Ontario, as shown by the.
same report on Page 130, the bulk of the
eggs are taken between October 18 and
November 13, just one month later.
Mr. Van Dusen Insists that the fish
caught at these two hatcheries are from
the same run of fish, namely, salmon that
enter the Columbia In May and June,
But the evidence at Ontario seems to con
tradict the evidence at Grand Ronde and
vice versa, for the customary spawning
times at the two places are a month
Evidence tends to prove strongly that
specified runs of salmon In a river have
certain spawning months. Runs that oc
cur in the Columbia River before August
10 bear out this assertion, for each has
its own month for spawning. After that
date In some years, many salmon come
In with a marked development of the
spawn. Sometimes tho spawn is fully de.
veloped when they enter fresh water;
consequently their spawning time is ir
It Is well known that few salmon enter
the Columbia until after February 15.
During the ensuing two months many
schools turn into the Willamette and then
the Clackamas and are propagated at the
upper hatchery. The spawning time at
that station, as evidenced by the records.
is during the month of August.
It .is also well known that few Chi
nook salmon appear above Willamette
Falls before May 1, and that they go
over the falls in large numbers only
In May and June and at no other time
of the year. Undoubtedly, these fish
enter the Columbia some time between
April 15 and June 15; whereas,, those
going into the Clackamas come in from
the sea as early as.two months before.
The fish that, pass over the falls in
May and June are ready to spawn at
the McKcnzie River hatchery Jn the
month of September, as shown on page
114 of the above-mentioned report.
Thus, the February and March fish of
the Lower Columbia spawn at the Ub-
per Clackamas hatchery In August; the
April, May and June fish in Septem
ber. On the Umpqua River, fish enter
ing the stream between April 15 and
July 1 have their spawning time in
September. At the Rogue River hatch
ery the spawning time of April. May.
June and July fish Is September and
The above facts prove that most of
the salmon that come into the Colum
bia River between February 15 and
April 15 spawn In August, and that
the most or those that enter between
April 15 and Juno 15 spawn In Sep
tember. In no single case is it found
that salmon which come Into fresh
water in May and June spawn in Oc-
tooer anq November, as Mr. Van Du
sen believes they do at Ontario,
It is, "therefore, logical to "presume
First, that In all probability salmon
which are taken at the Grand Ronde
station enter the lower Columbia be
tween the middle of April and the
middle of June.
Second, that salmon caught at On
station enter the Lower Columbia be
tween the middle of June and the mid
die of August.
The large take of eggs at Ontario
early in November indicates that the
fish are largely July and August
salmon, not May and June.
The statement that salmon travel
up stream at five or ten miles a day
is not rename in calculating the time
that they require to reach Ontario, for
it cannot be verified (n a question of
this kind. Salmon have been known to
ascend rivers more than 20 miles a day
lor several consecutive days.
