REPORT OF THE FISH WARDEN Denies Stories Published About the Loan of Salmon at the Dam on Rogue Klver. GREAT RUN OF SALMON Hatchery Fish Reach the Colum bia and Fishermen are Mak The report of Fish Warden Van Dusen for the month of July was made public yesterday.

In regard to this matter, I beg to PACKING HOUSES BLOCKED Some of the Boats Come in With as Much as Three Tons and Very Few Fall Below 1200 Pounds. The long-looked-for hatchery run of salmon has at last entered the river. Yesterday receipts at the canneries were so heavy that the offerings could not be cared for. and. while the boats were not limited during the day, the packing houses were blocked. It was a repetition of the conditions existing last year at this time, and the spec tacle gladdened the hearts of all As torlans. A. big run of salmon was reported to have entered the river on Saturday night's flood, and receipts on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday were gratifying. However, the fish were not the hatch ery run, but rather the advance guard. Tuesday night the run Increased, and ' yesterday all of the receiving docks were piled high- with great fish of un equaled quality. Many of the boats h made two deliveries during the day, , and so far as could be learned all of the offerings of salmon were accepted at the various institutions. . Nearly all of the packers paid the original prices yesterday, 6 cents be ing given for fish weighing over 27 pounds and 5 cents for fish under that weight It was stated that the Tallant- : Grant company had reduced the price to 5 cents for all sizes of fish at 4 o'clock yesterday morning, but the , other canneries paid 5 and 6 cents. At the Kinney cannery late yesterday afternoon 6 cents was paid for large , fish, although the higher priced salmon were canned and not sent to the cold I storage plant The receipts at the cold storage were too great to permit of any cannery fish being sent there. It was freely predicted last evening that all of the packers would reduce the price to 5 cents flat this morning. Some Inspiring Scenes. The scenes at the various packing houses were indeed inspiring. From all points of the compass heavily laden Ashing boats were to be seen making for the canneries. The boats were loaded almost to the guards. Al ready there were long lines of waiting boats at the canneries, and the Incom ing fishermen raced along Wore the afternoon breeze In order to get a good place In the line. The receiving docks were stacked high with fine salmon, and the cannery forces worked the afternoon. A newspaper repre sentative who talked with seven fisher-1 report: That while the salmon are be men is nicy ueuvereu ineir nsn yes-img oioppea ana inierierea witn to a terday afternoon was told by six that J considerable extent by this dam, very they were compelled to haul in their! few are being injured In any way and nets without removing half the flshlthey are passing up through the fish from the meshes.
