Salmon hatcheries of the Columbia
f river released about 25,200,000 Chl
' jiook fry in the season of 190C-7, ac
cording to statistics of tho United
States Fish Commission, the Oregon
pish Warden and tho Washington
Fish Commissioner, each of whom
.carried on Independent hatchery
Tvork. This Is a big failllng off from
tho seasons of 1900-1, 1901-2 and
1902-3, tho average for those seasons
having been 53,325,000.
SInco those years the hatche.ries
have had little to do, because unable
to obtain enough parent salmon for
spawn supply. It Is a noteworthy '
coincidence that In the last three sea
sons of spawn shortage tho fi3hing
.season has been prolonged. -In 1904
the closed season was not enforced
and the hatchery output was but
1C, 000,000 fry, whereas tho year bo

It thus appears that extension of
open season lor the benefit of lower
rlvor fisheries has been accompanied
by alarming decrease In spawn sup
ply for hatcheries which gives sub
stance to tho argument that too many
fish aro caught, which ought to sup
ply the hatcheries with life germs for ( gui,ervSOrs
artificial progagation. United States
fishery mon have protested In vain
against those extensions ofNopen sea
son, predicting that they would bring
ruin on tho salmon industry. Offi
cials of tho United States Bureau of
Fisheries and superintendents of
Government hatcheries have declared i
that inability of tho two states to I
handlo tho industry properly with j
closed season laws, nonobservance of '
what little closed season existed In
tho state laws, political or other in
fluence in the administration of state
fishery affairs, general incompetence
or indifference of state officials and
unrestrained grasping by all kinds of
gear, aro responsible for the present
bad condition of affairs. i
This fishing season has been tho
poorest over known, shpwing that
thoro Is no. recovery from the down
hill route. Statistics of tho Oregon
Fish Warden show that in 1889 and
1890, about 57 per cent of the annual
pack of Chinook salmon was made in
April, May and June about 175,000
cases. But this year not more than
20 per cent of the pack will have
been made in thoso months about
90,000 cases, or half as much. This j
comnarlson Is Important as show
ing the decline of April, May and
Juno salmon tho fish which made
tho big reputation of tho Columbia
river. Tho size of tho annual pack
has been kept up by Increased supply
of August salmon and that supply
has been maintained by hatcheries,
operating under tho closed season
which until 1905 began August 15.
SInco then tho open season hasj
been lengthened to August zo. n
Is feared that tho results of tho ex
tension will be bad for tho Industry
and will ruin the August supply.
Statistics of-tho last three years of
tho lengthened season plainly reveal
a shortage of salmon for tho hatch
eries. Tho season was lengthened
against tho protest of United States
flsh exports, whose oponions, how
over, wore not respected by tho legis
latures of Orogon and Washington.
Prior to 1891, tho open season ended
August 1. It was then extended to
August 10, by demand of lower rlvor
fisheries, which wanted to add tho
August salmon to their pack. In
1901, the open season was further
oxtended to August 15, and finally
in 1905, to August 25.

1 UlllCU L A COO CJlil,lll, out It IJVIUIC till-
I coptlng tho mayoralty offer yester
' day ho took counsel of Chief Justice
, Beatty of the Supremo Court, who al
most urged him to take tho office,
i The mayor says he is a believer in
unions and thinks they have im
i proved labor conditions. The mayor
, has not yet made up his mind as to
tho selection of tho now board of
Messrs. W. P. Lynch and Bert
Watkins, members of tho company
which is manufacturing brick on Is
thmus Inlet, were In tho city yester
day and gave out the Information
that the first brick from tho yard
will bo ready-for delivery about tho
latter part of next week. They are
associated with D. A. Utter and Mr.
Moran. All aro Idaho people who
came to Coos Bay to embark In busi
ness. Mr. Watkins said tho com
pany Is having some trouble in dry
ing tho brick, since If they are ex
posed to tlit; wind or sun, they crack
badly.
The company has not Installed n
steam dryer, but when this aid is
added to the plant, it is believed
there will be no further trouble. On
this account, tho work has been a
little slow, since tho company wished
to bring out a first-class product on,
tho first trial if possible. The com
pany has orders for more brick than
it could deliver In a year, dependent
of course on the quality being mer
chantable. This, they have no doubt
will not affect the orders as they
have tested the clay and all reports
aro the same: "Tho clay is capable
of making first-class brick."
When questioned regarding the
orders, Mr. Watkins said:
"We have one order for 200,000,
and tho same firm would take twice
that amount. Wo scarcely know
with whom to deal at first, since
there is such a heavy demand that
wo cannot fill tho orders' and there
fore cannot satisfy all thoso who aro
in a hurry to build. However, the
company is persuaded that tho right
courso under tho circumstances
would be to furnish material for
thoso large buildings that will be
erected In Ma'rshfleld, where the
brick would bo an advertisement for
tho country, whereas, If they wore
sent to some Isolated spot, they
would attract no attention for a
time. For our own advertising, we
have no thought, as good brick man
ufactured on Coos Bay will advertise
themselves.
"Naturally, we aro going a little
slow, until wo understand beyond
any possible doubt that we have the
material necessary to tho upbuilding
of tho cities of Coos Bay with mod
ern buildings. When we aro fully
satisfied of this, our plant will be
enlarged and every effort will be
made to turn out brick In such quan
tities that the trade can be supplied
promptly. Wo are employing ten
men at present, but this force will
be more than doubled If our plans
aro realized."
