The following is tho latest in the Cali
fornia Grocer and Conner, written by
"Chinook" from "tho Columbia river.-'
The salmon season is rapidly nearing a
close, and the "July run" has so far been
decidedly small when compared with
past seasons. If I recollect aright, it is
now fivo years sinco so smpll a number
of fish to the boat was caught. Figuring
upon tho total pack is tho order of the
day. I don't indulge to any oxtont in
that amusement. July is full of possi
bilities, and tho salmon are under water.
Tho packer who has not sold, naturally
makes tho output small. Tho reasons
adduced, and tho arguments advanced,
have all a personal bias; so it is better
to await patiently the result especially
as the first of August is now so near.
Standing in front of tho "Occidental"
hotel a few evenings since, I was greatly
edified to hear the opinions expressed re
garding tho remarks concerning nets,
etc., in the letter of tho 25th ultimo.
Fishermen said "it was a shame to givo
away the business." A prominent can
ner, known all over tho world, said that
a whole net had been stolen from his net
rack a fow days or nights since, but it
was recovered, because it had private
marks by which it could bo identified.
No one said tho reports were untrue. Ona
fisherman had been making mental cal
culation. Said he: "I think the Sacra
mento fellows have always taken away
more net than thoy brought with them,
but now that fall fishing upon that river
is illegal, wo shall perhaps bavo a chance
to keen the net3 upon our river." You will
;utiao the high moral tono permeating
Now, a few words about July fishing.
It is true that more than one-third of tho
salmon packed upon tho Columbia river
is putupduring July. This means a great
deal. First Tho canners aro rushed with
work during tho time. Second Tho hot
weather makes it imperative that fish shall
bo cooked every day if fresh salmon aro
to bo canned. Third Any delay in
cooking is suro to result in soft fish.
Fourth Soft fish left over, with which
to begin a day's cooking, wil tend to de
lay the proper attention to fresh salmon,
which, in tho morning, are in fino condi
tion. Fifth A delay of a few hours will
sometimes result in making the whole
cooking for tho day of a quality which
should not bo called first-clas3. Sixth
A rush of fish will nearly always prevent
tho proper washing down, by which tho
accumulation of fish slime, etc., may 'bo
removed; this accounts for tho lack of
neatness so noticeable in many canneries
It will readily be admitted that more
care is needed" during the hot weather
than in tho earlier part of tho season.
During July, salmon should bo cooked
every day. If a day elapse in which no
cooking is done, 'trouble may ensue.
Should a run of fish occur tho cannor
finds himself unablo to handle all tho
salmon which comes in, and, as a result,
ho pocks tho oldest fish first, so that by
tho time ho completes his work he has
been putting up stale fish for a week.
But is there a remedy for this? Very
surely. If at the beginning of a July'
day there is a supply beyond tho full ca
pacity of tho cannery, throw overboard
all tho old fish. It coats something, but
if you don't preserve tho salmon you do
keep your reputation. Then profiting by
the lesson, refuse- to accept more fish
than you can use properly; wash down
frequently and let yonr more ambitious
neighbors reap tho harvest and cook
salmon; "flat, stiilo and unprofitable"
though tho harvest Tflay be to them.
It is said to require more courago than
is possessed by tho averago canner to
throw overboard fish which co3t from
fifty to seventy-five cents. But it has
been done. One canner, who needs no
advertising, for which he does not pay,
threw overboard in ono season four thou
sand cases of cooked salmon, represent
ing a valuo to him of $20,000. Ho tested
the lot, found they were not up to his
standard, and decided that he could not
afford to risk his reputation by allowing
these salmon to be sold. Ho did not
boast of this (ho is not a man given to
that), but ho avoided all possibility of a
recurrence of this accident.
I asked him during a recent conversa
tion if ho thought it had paid him. He
replied: "That was not the question at
all, the fish was not good enough for my
own use, so nobody could have it." As a
matter of fact ho says tho public will not
learn to discriminate, but will frequently
.pay good prices for calmon of an inforior
quality. But no says, ana i agree wiiu
him, that a reputation gained by a life
time of honest dealing must havo its
weight, and he is willing to abido the is
sue, and provide an article of food,
cheap, economical wholesome and of, first
nations prizo as one- of tho most genteel ined anii unloaded at Tacoma and placed
of amusements. Chinese astronomers aro
prophesying that a new dynasty will soon
be formed, and as tho new emperor is
conducted to his royal palace he will pro
claim that all Chinamen shall be liber
ated from the obligation of wearing tho
burdensome queue. Many Chinamen
aro indifferent, but the more intelligent
aro very anxious Inat the desired change
should come quickly. They count their
ages by birthdays instead of tho actual
years. So a Chinaman is ono year old at
his birth, and is considered two years
old at tho commencement of the second
year. Sea tile Post-In tclligen ccr.
