Total for the season 629,438
Of this total Astoria's proportion is
large one and shows the concentra
tion of the business at tins place. Of
the thirty eight canneries enumerated
above, twenty-four are at Astoria: of
the 620,438 cases put up on the river,
420,000 cases were put up at Astoria.
The Astoria canneries paid fishermen
$1,110,000 for fish, of the 1,550,000
paid out for the catch during the sea'
An Astoria Industry.
In the preparation of salmon for the
canning process, a considerable quan
tity of unsalable refuse is produced,
wnicn was dumped into the river as
waste until tho establishment of oil
works by J. H. DeForce, about five
The works were first located where
the Seaside cannery now stands, and
were afterwards moved to a point up
the river. Economy, however, de
manded that the works should be be
low the canneries instead of above
thorn, and so, last spring the works
were moved to Smith's Point, on the
Youngs river side.
ihe buildings bax&L leet, stand on
piles in the tidewater, and are reached
from the shore by a plank walk. The
refuse from the canneries is brought
to the works in boats, from which it is
raised by means of a bib and winch to
a set of sixteen tanks, each of the ca
pacity of 2,000 salmon heads.
Here the tank charge is boiled for
five hours with steam, then a gate in
the bottom allows it to drop into
tank bolow. There are eight of these
tanks, each cqu:d in capacity to two of
the upper tanks. Here it is allowed
to settle twp or three days, when the
liquid portion is dipped into a set of
small tanks, reboiled bv steam and
strained. It is then pumped into iron
tanks vu teet away irom the mam
buildinz where it ib boiled by direct
heat over a furnace. The oil then re
turns by gravitation to tanks inside
the building, when it is allowed to
settle and clear before beinir canned
The business is one which has failed
in other hands, and it is only by an
economy that seems difficult to improve
upon, that Mr. DeForce has been able
to establish a profitable industry. The
salmon is caught, the eatable portion
is canned, an oil which is suitable for
a variety of lubricating purposes,
extracted from the refuse which
finally utilized as a fertilizer. With all
this apparent economy, however, there
is a creat and serious waste, which
probably has not escaped tho keen
observation of the proprietor. It is an
active and potent smell of untola
horsepower, which pervades the at
mosphere of the entire works.
An Honest Man.
Were that old cynic Diogenes to
come around in these times he could
find the object of his search with little
trouble. As an illustration may be
mentioned the following: As the Inst
outgoing steamer was lying here,
man went wildly rushing up and down
tho streets, and at last stopped a well
known citizen saying "Look hero, do
yon know ?" "Yes." "Well
I worked for him till quite recently
in his logging camp. I am going back
home to Nova Scotia, and tho steamor
leaves in a few minutes. I can t find
him, but here is S150 that belongs to
him. He overpaid mo that much
and 1 didn't find it out till just now."
And handing the citizen the 150, the
man started down Main street.

Defying the Salmon Law.
The preparation for Gshing during
the close season on tho Sacramento
river gue3 on uninterruptedly, . and
the open threats of the fishermen to
continue fishing throughout the year,
open sci3on or close, leaves us in no
doubt as to their intention. During
the fishing season juat past they have
continued to fish on each recurring
Sunday throughout the season, in de
fiance of the law, and, though arrested
and fined, the following Sunday found
them again on the river. While tho
law provides a penalty, it' is lo be re
gretted that in mo3t cisen the culprit
escapes scot free. They have the sym
pathy of the people on the river, and
favored by the justices before
whom they are taken for trial, so that
punishment rarely follows detection,
even when they arc taken '''red-handed."
Even tho packers do not dare to
proceed vigorously against them, as
they are fearful of antagonizing them
to such an extentas to prevent their ob
taining fish from them during thu sea
son next following. It is more than
likely tha t,if detected,a change of veu no
would be rcnderel necessary, in order
to bring the full penall;-' of the law to
bear upon any one case. It remains
to bo seen whether the fish commis
sioners, with the aid of the detectives
who have been employed to act upon
the river during tho close season now
upon us, will succeed in effecting any
thing with these lawless marauders.
They are apparently in earnest, and
we trust thuir earnestness will be pro
ductive of good results. It is the in
tention of the fishermen to salt the
catch, and it is confidently expected
that, if the law does not. assert its
majesty, their uppi.it of salt salmon
will amount to between 5,000 and
0,000 barrels, or somewhere in the
neighborhood of 100,000 lish.--Gff.
