Columbia Muraeon AUead.
Until two years ago the sturgeon of the
Columbia river found no market in
Portland or anywbore else, and all sturgeon
oaugbt by salmon fishers were thrown over
board. Mow It seems tnat lbs sturgeon in
dustry of the Columbia bids lair to rival the
salmon industry, ai there is a ready maraei
for all sturgeon oaugbt. Over 100,000
pounds of sturgeon have been caught in
the Columbia river between Astoria and
Ranier during the past fourteen days, aud
the season's catch will figure up to about
300 tons. About 250 tons have already
been shipped, and there is enough stur
geon in sight to bring the catch up to at
least 300 tons. The lurgost catch in one
day has been twenty-two tons. There are
about twenty tUhermen engaged in the
buHiuess this year, and they are making
better wages than they did v. hea enpiged iu
oatching salmon. The fish are oaugbt with
hook aud line, am the bait used is small
salmon nnjl lumper-eel. All (be fish Caught
are boiicht by the Pacific r'ish Company,
who send them to Portland, then pack
them in ice, and ship them to Sandusky
U , Chicago and New lork. Ibe price
paid is one cent a pound, but even at this
low Drice the fishermen are making good
wages. Sturgeon retail in the east all the
wav (rom ten to fifteen cents a pound, so
that there is some profit in it (or the com
pany buying them.
