To-morrow we expect to receive an
engrossed copy of the bill that passed
as a i,ubdivute for house bill No. 107,
''providing a revenue to assist the
Oregon and Washington fish propaga
ting company." "We are informed by
Messrs. John Adair, jr. , of Upper As
toria, and J. G. Megler, of Brook
field, that the Portland board of trade
bill did not pass, as it was in direct
conflict with the constitution and laws
of this country, and recent decisions of
the supreme court of the United
States, a synopsis of which was pub
lished in Tub Astorian Sept. 16th
and 22d. Messrs. Adair and Megler
inform us that notice was printed in
the Oregonian for a meeting of fisher
men, cannerymen and all others inter
ested, to meet in Portland, but that
nobody came to the meeting. Per
haps this was owing to the limited cir
culation, not giving fishermen and
cannerymen generally an opportunity
to leavn the facts. It is always best to
put such notices as that in The Asto
eian, and call such meetings as those
to meet at Astoria, because here it is
that all the fish come in the first place
after they enter the river; here it is
the fish all pass out in cases, whether
to domestic or foreign ports; here it is
that ninety-nine out of every hundred
fishermen on the river make their
headquarters; here it is that a meeting
of one thousand men can get together
on three days notice published in The
Astoria. Portland is simply a side
show affair in this connection, and it is
perhaps unfortunate that the meeting
was called to meet there, to consider
an Astoria subject.
