Shortage Is Figured, Even Ten
der Xornial Conditions.
An unusual situation exist in the canned
salmon market. particularly a concern
pink tlah. It i by no means satisractory
to the pink salmon canners. hut. tlvy see
signs on the borixon of a change for the
For years It has ben customary for these
packers to sell their output at prices witn
th makinr of which they had little to do.
The red salmon packers have been In the
habit of making the opnine price on pink
as wll as red fiflh. Tp to this time the
rink salmon people have patiently stood
for this, but in future years they will prob
ably dictate their own policy. When the in
us try was young the association was no
doubt Juatlflfd 'n fixing the price or pin
aalmon. When, last year, they put the
price at $1. the pink salmon packers
naturally made no complaint, but this year.
rhen the big association fixed the opening
price on reds at 1.4t and medium r-ds at
SI. 15 and at the same time listed pinks at
63 cents and chums at ct-nts, there
was complaint long, loud and deep.
The pink saimon cannc-rs say they are
not insisting on a $1 market this year, but
thev declare cmphatlcaily t:..r T. conts Is
en entirely unnrafonbIe and unprofitable
quotation. The normal value of pinks this
year, thev say. should be JH or S3 cents.
They also figure :her will be a shortage
of 1,000.000 cares of pinks. There will
possibly be a b'.g pack on the Sound next
year, but whether there is or not, there wlil
re a shortage brfore the f-ar Is over. Con
sumption fr five years has be.n increasing
tead:!y since maikets were developed. The
war in Enstprn Kurope fs already stimulat
ing the demand and shouTd the disturbance
become general., the shortage will be many
times over what is already estimated.
Anticipating a stronger market later,
xnany packers are not putting their holdings
on the market at the present time. There
re a so some speculative operations under
way, in view of possible strong develop
ments in the coming months.
