OREGON FRESH SALMON'.
Oregon salmon, taken from the low
er Columbia or from any of the
streams that fall into the Pacific
north of Point Orford, have for inore
than one generation been justly re
garded as the best fish of the variety
in the world, with the single excep
tion of the King salmon of the Yukon
and other rivers of Alaska. In size
those caught in the fisheries of the
estuary of the Columbia will average
above twenty pounds each, and it is
not at all uncommon to take them of
thirty-five or forty pounds. We have
personally seen many of that weight
taken in sight of Astoria. The Ore
gon salmon caught in the height of
the season, which runs from the 20th
of April to the 1st of July, is over
laid by'a stratum of black fat from a
quarter to a half inch thick, and the
red meat under this surface of fat is
as Bolid as beef. In the first efforts
to utilize these fish for commerce
they were either salted down in brine
and barreled, or salted dry and smok
ed. Preparatory to the final curing
they had to be packed down for a
day or two in salt water till the ex
cess of oily substance should rise and
be skimmed off, after which they were
packed in casks and resalted for ex
port The expense of this method
was found to eat away about all the
profits, and for a good many years
past the canning process has been
followed to a better advantage.
The canning of Oregon salmon has
become a staple industry on the Co
lumbia. It employs some millions in
capital and thousands of laborers, en
gaged as Ushers, cutters and canners.
Its annual products are next to the
wheat crop of that state in value. But
it has been long known that with
cheap and rapid facilities for trans
portation, the most profitable disposi
tion that can be made of the Coluin-

in the unsalted state to the eastern
markets. The first experiment 0:1 a
considerable scale in this business has
just been commenced. One full ro
frigerator carload was landed by way
of the Korthern Pacific railroad, at
New York, on the 39th of this month.
The fish, Ave are told, were packed in
boxes, which were surrounded by
crushed ice, to keep the temperature
of the car at the freezing point and
from 10 to 12 degrees below, though
freezing point would suffice as well as
any degree below it. The car con
tained 100 boxes, each box having
from G to 7, according to the size of
i. ZlfA'nmni'r TO TI1R K17ft HI I
If we assume GJ as the '
average, the car contained GoO salmon;
and if we average them at 20 poundb
each, there was an aggregato of 13,-
000 pounds of salmon, or d net toiif
As the average carload is 10 tons, it '
follows that the ice must have weighed ,
Zy tons, or 33 per cent of the cargo,
against G5 per cent of fish. For.
every 100 pounds of freight charced
by the railroad against the shipper, '
he had GO pounds of salmon and J5 .
pounds of dead weight Tho fish
cost him, delivered at the cars at Port

temperature of the car by replenish-1 "Well, Mr. Secretary," said Com
sing the melting ice. The fish retailed niodore Walker with a puzzled ex-

leaving a profit of 8 cents per pound
minus the cost of the person who at
tended to the car. The profit on the
whole carload of 12,000 pounds was
l,0i0. Deduct the wages and fare
of the attendant, say $240 fare for tho
round trip and $30 for wages, or $290
in all, and wo have a net profit for the
shipper of $750. His investment was :
Cost of 13,000 pounds of fish, at 5
cents per pound, $650; cost of 100
boxes, at 30 cents each, $30; cost of
ice, say 5000 pounds, at 1 cent per
pound, $50; cost of attendant's fare,
prepaid to New York, $120, or a total
of $850. The profit on this is $750,
or above 88 per cent
And so the experiment demonstrates
that the new business will pay better
than the old methods of disposing of
the Oregon salmon. There is an un
limited market, and we may bo sure
that the first price will be well main
tained as long as beef and mutton
averages as high as they do now in
New York. For, apart from the ques
tion of luxury, these fish, pound for
pound, contains as much substance
as beef or mutton, and to use a home
ly phrase, "will go as far in tho fam
ily." Eight cars have been fitted out
for the business, and after it becomes
thoroughly organized and perfected
in its details a good deal may be saved
in the cost of transportation. More
over, it will bo as easy to land the fish
in prime condition at London or
Liverpool as at New York, for the
only requisite is to keep them frozen
from first to last and such salmon at
London 4 will bo worth a good deal
more than 20 or 25 cents per pound,
when "salmon from tho friths of Scot
land readily sell for 50 cents to $1 a
pound in that market San Fran
Tom Marshall on the Yankee.
Tho lato Tom Marshall of Ken
tucky was once making one of his
brilliant speeches to a mass meeting
of the southern people that had been
.entertained for hours by the repeti
tion of tho claim that northern mon
were poor-spirited traders, and so
x;owaraly that one southern gentle
man was ablo -to thrash five Yankees
He said: "These eloquent friends of
mine are laboring under a grave de
lusion in asserting that Yankees are
more cowardly and less willing to
fight than their southern brethren.
This is not the fact, and you will see
it when I tell you that they have
more to fight for than wo have. They
havo property, which we through our
ignorance, indifference and laziness
have failed to accumulate. It is a
law of our nature that our courage
to defend is in proportion to the
value of what wo havo to defend.
"Who among you here does not rank
honor above life? Now the same
American nature is to bo found in
Yankee land that exists in south
land. We are all one family; but the
Yankee adds tohis sum of honor
beaut!fnl homes, wide possessions,
j-reat enterprises, and above all, cul-
turc to appreciate his owuiugs.
Won't he fight for these? My gal
lant friend, sitting on his blood-steed
out there, who spoke before me,
shakes his head in the negative.
Well, let my gallant friend go with
me to Cape Cod, for example. I will
show him a long, lanky, bronzed and
grizzled man idling by a hogshead of
whale oil. That man is a Yankee
sailor, with hands as hard as the har
poon he handles. He is home from a
cruise of three years in the northern
seas a cruise fraught with peril that
tries not for once but for every min
uto of its existence the highest cour
age, the coolest self-possession; for
he sails in seas guarded by the mes
sengers sent down by King Death
himself, who sits enthroned at the
North Pole, guarded by the gathered
winters of a thousand years, and
saved from endless night by the
Aurora borealis that gleams about
that awful desert of silence like
sheeted ghosts of ruined worlds.
This Yankee sailor must 'fight his
way through continents of ice-fields,
grinding and crushing along as
mighty oceans tosses them onward.
He must sail by icebergs that are
floating mountains. And all these
perils fade before the one that opens
when, escaping them, he attacks the
mighty monster of the deep attacks
him in a frail open boat, armed only
with a harpoon.and conquers througii
the keenest skill- and this is the man
too cowardly to fight a southern gen
tleman! We southern gentlemen can
dispose of him five at a time. Th .t
is the proposition. Well, my friend,
try this one. He may call the Yan
kee sailor a liar, a thief, a poltroon,
and the fellow will laugh at him. He
may even .slap him in the face, and
the Yankee will appeal to the law
and have my gallant friend laid by
the heels in a jail. But let him touch
that hogshead of whale oil to injure
or destroy it, and it will take all my
gallant friend's surviving heira and
assigns to nut enoush together to
hold an inquest on. Lot us not de
oeivo ourselves. Should the time
ever come which God forbid when
through madness wo may try con
clusions with these brothers of ours,
weshall have to purchase of them
arms and ammunition to begin with
and coffins to end with."
