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 fore, when fishing stopped on August Ttal 28,205,714 Total chluooks 25,243,500 Chinook salmon output of hatch ories and packing plants on Colum bia rlvor nnd Its tributaries In the last 20 years has been as follows, according to records of United States Fish Commissioner, Oregon Fish Warden and Washington Fish Commissioner: Fry Year. liberated. 1880 1887 1,500,000 1888 4,500,000 1889 4,760,000 1890 4,900,000 1891 1,330,000 1892 4,100,000 1893 277,000 1894 23,000 1895 7.C87.000 189G 14,300,000 1897 29,910,000 1898, 19,700,000 1899 23,500,000 1900 25,700,000 1901 42,475,000 1902 55,000,000 M ORDERS FOR BRICK New Plant On Isthmus Inlet Has Heavy Business Assured.

In 1905 and 190G tho fishing San Francisco, July 17. Mayor season was extended to August 25T.lyior in a statement to tho Asso- ami iuu uuiAiiiuiica in muau ovusuiid , cajC( tunica out az.uuu.uuu ana us.uuu,- 000 respectively. 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.

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." mmtmtmm0mmt0m maftiMiM0VM JUST A FEW ACRE TRACTS Has Eight Nice RoomsSubstantial and Attractive, Cost $5,100.
