What Anglers Say of Rogue
River Obstruction, and

- - (Special ,tlpa tea to Tbe Joamat) ,
Grants Paes,' Or., July to. Petitions
'signed by nearly 1,000 people residing
near Jtogue xlver abova Grants Pass
have been prepared for submission to
Governor Chamberlain. " These petitions
declare the fish ladder oonstructed on
the -dam of the Golden Drift Mining
company three mllea above this city to
be- wholly inadequate and urge that Im
mediate steps be taken to provide bet
ter means ior tne paeeage or salmon
up the river to the spawning grounds.
It la contended that only a very email
number of salmon get farther than the
dam and that hundreds and thousands
of the fish are killed or die without
reaching tne upper river. These con
ditions will necessarily result in the
ultimata extluqtion pf , salmon in the
.. Manager Amen t of the Golden Drift
company declares tbe ladder placed, on
the dam waa -constructed under the di
rections ' given by the Master Fish
Warden and waa approved by that of
ficial when completed. . Mr. Ament
States that the ladder Is nearly twloe
as wide as was required, and that sal
mon pass over It with ease.
He la willing to make any changes
or Improvements on the ladder suggest
ed by the master fish warden or any
other offlolai : armed with proper au
thority. . - .
. The trouble does not lie In tho ladder,
so fishermen declare, but In the dam.
The power dam makes a 10-foot fall
aoroas the whole width of the river and
the aalmon are unable to get over it.
Ae the entrance to tho ladder Is but a
very small section of the entire river's
width, many of the salmon pound them
Selves to death on the dam before they
find the ladder.
K la Impossible to make a much wider
ladder without lnlurina- the' dam and
aa the power dam la naturally held- by
tho company to oe of greater worth than
the salmon. It claims that the law of
greatest good for the greatest number
should rule and ' that ' the controversy
should bo settled on this basis. .
