P W CELEBRATED
Report f the Board fFtek ConmUaioncrc.
The report of tho state board of
fish commissioners has been prepared,
and contains a large amount of very
interesting information. There are
twenty-one salmon cannerios, putting
up 200,000 cans per year. Tho m
creass of the catch for tho last three
years has caused a marked decrease
of the supply, and they look for a
more marked decrease tho coming
season, tho causes for which are ma
ny, viz.: Illicit fishing during the
close season; loss of salmon in the
tales; oonsumption by seals and sea
lions, which follow tho fish from the
Golden Gate to Bio Vista; thodiffer
ent kind of aquatic birds, which arc
numerous and very destructive to
tho young of all kinds of fish as thoy
aro descending frsm the spawning
grounds to tho ocean; dams and oth
er obstructions near too spawning
Owing to limited means the com
mission has not been able to abolish
illicit fishing. The fishing has in
creased so rapidly of late years,
owing to tho demand of the canneries,
that it has become necessary for the
commission to plant as many salmon
as possible in the headwaters of the
Sacramento, in order to keep up the
supply, net less tnan 4,000,000 fish
will have to be planted each rear.
During tho seaon of 1883 451,957
spring salmon and 100,542 fall salm
on, aggregating 7,849,99S pounds,
have been packed, and 3,235,6S4 lbs.
havo been sold in the markets. The
pack of salmon on tho Sacramento
for the year 18Si will fall short fully
one-naif Irom tnat of tno year 18S3,
although more than ordinary exer
tions ubto oean maao oy mo nsuer
men to obtain them.
The fall run of salmon of ISSlhas
been the lightest that was ever known
id the memory of tbe oldest fisher
men. On the first and second days
of September tho run was not as
heavy as it should havo been during
tho same days in tho month of Octo
ber. There is no cause known to the
commission for tho marked decrease
in tho fall run this year.
The prinoipal fresh-water food fish
of the state are the salmon, Truckee
trout, chub, pike, dace, mullet, carp,
sturgeon, catfish and bullheads,
whitefish, shad and striped bass.
The' salt-water food fish aro rook cod
orgroupe, bay fish, eels, black bass
The question of preventing the de
struction of young fish by nets is dis-
cuBsed, and the legislature is recom
mended to pass a law prohibiting fish
ing with set-nets, either for shrimps
or fish. The only way to avoid the
evil is to stop tho catching of shrimps
except by tho use of proper seines.
If the mode adopted by the Chinese
is auowea w do coniinuea, in a rew
years they will have the bay of San
Francisco entirely drained of all kinds
of food fish. The number of small
fish, Bhiimps, etc., so taken by the
Uhmese, and by illicit fishing, amounts
to thousands of tons per year.
In the opinion of .the commission
ers the state should set apart that
section of the river from Jacinto to
the McCloud and Pit rivers as breed
ing grounds, so that no net or seine
could be legally used in that portion
ot mo nver. jli a law ol tnat char
acter is not passed and enforced, tho
salmon interest of this state will be
of short duration, as tho parties us
mg semes on the spawning grounds
do more towards annihilating the
salmonthan all the gill-net fishermen,
as the gill-nets are nearly of a uni
form size of msh, and only tako ma
tured fish, wlnls the seines take all
sires, from one-half pound up.
The commission calls upon the next
legislature to maice appropriations
ror two hatcheries one for the pur
pose of hatching trout and keeping
tae same in proper ponds until they
becomo at least four months old, and
a hatchery for the breeding of salmon
on the headwaters of the Sacramento
river. Without these hatcheries tho
commission will be unable to keep up
the supply. The demand now ex-
oeeds the supply by more than 100.-
000 matured salmon. The California
commissioners have been dependent
upon the united btates commission
for all salmon supplies, and thev can
no longer look for fish- in that direc
tion, as tne united btates commis
sioners have discontinued the work
at tho McCloud river hatchery.
During the past year the deputy
fish commissioner arrested and con
victed ninety-three violaters of the
law and collected S2,000 in fines.
Treasurer Dibble asks tho legisla
ture for $3,000 for a steam launch
and $10,000 for the construction of
Ho also suggests that a "boat li
cense law" bo enacted, requiring all
persons known as market or cannery
fishermen, and those engaged in
catching fish to dry, salt or transport,
to pay a license tax upon eaoh boat
used by them in their vocation.
Suoh law will have the approval of
the law-abiding fishermen.
Another suggestion is that the
state appropriate for the thirty-seventh
fiscal year $7,000 and for the
thirty-aighth fiscal year $6,000, and
that a special appropriation of about
$1,000 be made to cover the deficien
cies of the tkirty-flfth and thirtT-
sixth fiscal years. Bulletin.

The site of Portland was first claim
ed in 1813 by a Tennesscean named
Orerton. He traded his claim next
year to Messra. Lovojoy and Petty
grove, who erected the first dwelling
on the site, a log house, at the foot of
what is now "Washington street A

piat was about the only evidence of a
town until 1848, when the name Port
land was adopted. Then Mr. Petty
grove bought the interest of Lovejoy,
and he soon after traded tho whole
town to Daniel H. Lownsdale for
$5,000 worth of homo-tanned leather.

regard to the subject, but the strong

chronicled right by priority of dis
covery the basis of England's claim
to and control over all she has or ever
had in tho western world.
Mr. Pettygrove was from Maine
and Mr. Lovejoy from Massachusetts.
They were joint owners of the town
site of Portland in 1S48. Each fail

name was the preferable one, they
stepped out ol tno newly erected
cabin into tho little opening among
