SAL3I0.V FISHIER OX THE COLUMBIA.
The Preient Statin of the Business.
That the results of last year's salmon
catch was a lesj to those engaged in the
production of the manufactured article,
is a fact so patent as to need no more
than passiuj; reference. It is customary
to prout by past mistake.,, anu in this, as
in other branches of manufacture, a
repetition in '84 of the tact.es that re
sulted so disastrously in SJ must produce
.ike results. The doctrine of ooninierdal
selfishness and tho policy of personal
agg.-andizoaient alike suggest the taking
of no unnecessary risks, and thougu
these two principles are rather sordid
ones to cite, yet they are confessedly the
mainsprings of action in all cases where
e manufactured article is offered for
Looking on the annuel catch of salmon
in the Columbia as a permanent industry,
the business may be considered as in a
transitory condition. There is a settling
of styles, an adjustment of values, a
change of mode tuat will in time result
in good. A few years ago it was pheuom -enal
in the rapidity by wmch those who
engaged in it maue money. It partook
of tne nature of mining; it was "a big
thing;" a man "went in," "made a win
ning," and could atford t a take it eas-.
But it got to be too good to keep. Others
x'ound it out and gradually it nas gone
on, till last season came for tiia first time
a new problem where to nud a ma.kjt.
Notuing but the reputation of the Jo
mmbia river .alniim notniug but the
knowledge and universally recognized
taut tnut the nsh caught in front of our
doors Is tne finest flavored of any m tne
world,'savud many of our canneries from
utter ruin. Even as it was no one made
Six hundred and thirty thousand eases
of salmon were packed on tho Columbia
river in the summer of '&. This amount,
tho largest ever known on the river, was
turown upun a market that had not even
the scnib-unce of life. Sjine had been
sold at fair prices b-fore the fisu hud
ever headed for the parent strcams,but the
greater part of tiiu pack had not been
placed prior to being put up. Hero was
one element of trouo.e. uur English
cousins wno, in small parcels, dispose ot
the bulk of the Columbia river salmon
pack, saw for the first time that they
.vera masters of tho situation. They
knew that of the 235,000 cases sent aoross
tne sea to them, the greater part was on
consignment, and .very naturally said
"this salmon comes to be sold; once here
there is no return, and we have the nam
ing of the price." This little game
worked very satisfactorily to the parties
of the first part; the parties of the second
part couldn't very well help then-stives.
Salmon is something like wueat or other
product. When ready the crop must
os reanzed on. Advances have been
made, notes and obligations are
falling due, and must be met, and apart
from the ever pressing difficulties of
storage room and storage rates, excessive
insurance, etc., lies the prime necessity
of turning the pack into ready coin. So
the price of salmon throughout thj sea
son was low in Britain through concerted
arrangement, and now, that the bulk of
the exports nag arrived out it is notice
able with what cheerful unanimity the
trade journals announce "a great im
provement in the tone of the salmon
Then, too, comes competition from out
side rivers. The fact tnat English capi
tal was lurgely interested in northern
waters naturally created an effort in
Liverpool, London and Glasgow to create
a demand for their own wares, and as in
other ius.ances nothing but the marked
superiority of the Columbia salmon in
sured its reception by retailers who found
it impossible to dispose of an inferior
article except at a greatly inferior price.
A repetition in '81 of a pack similar in
numbers to that of '83 means irreparable
los3. The English and colonial markets
are already stocked; the D3,O0J cases that
went east, preety well fill up the shelvt-s
in that section, and as far as the Ameri
can market is concerned the south und
west are the only sections which remain
unsupplied. This seems to be generally
understood. It is about the onty point
in connection with the matter on which
there is a unanimity of opinion, and ic
may be said that it is the only form of
logic that will convince many in the
A few days ago, pursuant to a call in
The Astoihax, representatives of the
several canneries met in this -city to de
vise some concerted plan of action for
the coming season. It was understood
tuat the matter of the price of liah ba
let alone, that being a sore subject, and
the deliberations were confined mainly
to a discussion concerning tho advisabil
ity of reducing the number of boats
that would fish this season. Though not
more than two-thirds of the canneries
were represented, it was with consider
able accuracy figared np that in '83
there were 1510 boats engaged in fishing,
with 1,93J,0U) salmon as the result. It
was argued und justiy that as a matter of
mutual profit it would be better for both
the canners and tha fisherman employed
to have the numbsr of boats reduced. It
.vassaid in argument that though the
price of fish was higher last season than
was ever known before, yet even the fish
ormen to who ai was paid these hih fig
ures didn't make as much as in tormer
years. This is sometnmg that is easy of
demonstration. Given a definite amount
of moaey to be divide!; the greater the
number among whom it is distributed
the less eaoh will receive. It is like prov
ing thut the sun gives light, or that the
While, in general, the idea was ac
cepted and favorably entertained, yet
when the matter of apportionment came
up the project went to pieces. Tho fact
that but two-thirds of the canneries
were represented at the meeting; that
many of the companies are co-operative;
that the quest.on of "outside boats"' is
necessarily an open one; that the fisher
men themselves could not for obvious
reasons be consulted, and the acknowl
edged difficult of gett.ng cannerymen
to agree, were among the causes that led
to the failure to establish and carry out
a concerted plan in relation to reduc ng
the number of boats for next season's
There are not wanting other sugg2s
tions looking to the fulfillment of the
same purpose, viz: packing fewr fish
this season. Among other ideas ad
vanced it is argued that there should be
a definite number of case3 decided upon
as the aggregate of the coming season's
pack; that as canning establishments are
costly to run, consolidation should bo ef
fected, or a certain pro rata set each es
tablishment, and wnen the several Gin
neries had each packed the proscribed
quota, operations cease for the season;
that last year's pack be taken as the bas
is to figure on and that each cannery
pack it3 proportion of the amount set for

difficulty lies in the furtherance of that
scheme that lay in successfully prosecut
ing the idea of' reducing the number of
The whole thing seems to whittle down
to this: that while all concede the propri
ety of reducing the catsh the coming sea
son, it is well nigh impossible to have
any definite understanding that can be
formulated, enforced and adhered to. It
is something that must be left to individ
ual judgment influenced by individual
ideas as to pocket interests.

Washington, Feb. 14. Congressman
Forney of Alabama, one of RandaL'ssup
partors in the recent contest for speaker,
and a southern member of considerable
prominence, speaking to-day of presiden
tial prospects, said that it looked as if
the favorites were generally going to get
left en all sides. He said: "McDonald
is at present at tho head of any one else
on the Democratic side, but he won't get
the nomination. He has now more votes
than any oth-r one man, but he has not
half the -who.e number, and the opposi
tion of Hendricks would leat the nomin

"Mr. Baudall is strong," he replied.
"He could hold Pennsylvania, and could
carry all the doubtful states, but is un
available on account of opposition in the
south. Morrison and Carlisle will both
be left out also, on account of strong
opposition. The party could unite on no
oue of them in tho conyention. Each of

"Here is where a dark horse will come
in. Someone not much spoken of, and
to whom, in consequence, there is no well
defined opposition, will come in and
carry the convention, it is uncertain
who that will be. probably Flower, of
New York, or someone else occupying
ubout his position. Flower would make
a first-rate darl horss. He would be
certain to carry New York."
"Who is going to be the Republican
"lTiey are also in an uncertain posi
tion. If the Democrats go on is they
are now g jing and make no serious mis
take, the Republicans will probably nomi
nate General W. T. Sherman, as a safe
man. If the Democrats, on the other
hand, make blunders and give them re
newed courage, then they will up with
one of their favorites and make a fight
of it. -3 Arthur, Loan, Edmunds and
Blaine will, in that event, have to fight it
out between themselves, and it is a
question which would come out of the
convention alive." Oregonian Spceial. ,
