THE SALMON BUSINESS
With a few Remarks Regarding the Ne
cessity and Rrxultaut Profit of Or
ganizing a Salmon IX
clianxe in Astoria.
Beporls from foreign and domestic
salmon markets are all of the same
tenor "values gciugup: little availa
ble stock." Last spring Tnn Asto
hiax ijrophesied the present situation.
Then the trade journals in San Fran
cisco and elsewhere pooh-poohed the
assertion. Even up to September 1st
there was a determined effort to bear
the market. By that time the pack
had passed from the packers' hands,
and at once began the general state
ment all along the liue regarding the
advisability of buying at present fig
ures lest they go higher, aud the
probability of considerable advance.
Two years ago Tnn Astoriax took
the ground that it was necessary for
the cauners to combine if they want
to do anything worthy the name of
business. Additional experience
adds additional impress to that be
lief. The time has gone by when
salmon cauners on the Columbia river
can carry on a profitable business,
unless they adopt the same system
that is so uniformly successful in the
history of similar enterprises of like
magnitude. Combine and win. It !
is not enough to pack a superior ar-
tide of salmon, to put it-up in good
shape and offer it on its merits: to
make and keep a high standard of ex
cellence, to introduce and maintain
an improved method of manufacture.
All this has beeu done in our Colum
bia river canneries, and yet where is
the canueryman to-day that has made
airy money in the business siuce
1SS1? They can be counted on the
fingers of one hand. For this un
toward result the cauners have no
one but themselves to blame; the
game is in their own hands aud if
they choose to let others take all tho j
tricks and score the result, they
simply fail to display the customary j
trade shrewdness. !
There is no existing reason why tho ;
manufacture or canned salmon on
the Columbia river should not bo as
certainly profitable as the manufac
ture of any other article of value in
the United States. To make it so re
quires on the (Jommbia river, just
the same as on the Ohio, or Williman-1
tic, or any wliero else -mutual conli- J
deuce and cooperation. As it is, if a j
Columbia river canner makes $6,000 j
or $S,000 on the season, it worries
him to hear that his neighbor has
made $10,000 or $12,000: it ho comes j
out loser, the knowledge that, his
next neighbor has lost too goes Jar j
to reconcile him to thestato of affairs: j
there is such a diversity of interests J
and a ciasmng oi claims, sucn a wiuo
lipl.iiof .i.iil i a"tc3i,ii1",.if trttt tr liirftl.-
npon each other as in one sense io- :
ad ju tors, that the business basis on
which other mutual protection socie
ties of like character art founded is
Personal profit and opportunity
to realize liuaucial investment are
among the most powerful of motives
to action. To organize a salmon
exchange here in Astoria, to consti
tute that salmon exchange the means
whereby all that pertains to the
business shall bo regulated and con
trolled may seem to some chimerical
aud visienary: to others impractica
ble or impelitic: lomoro useless and
cumbersome. Yet it is the only way
left for the prolitablo perpetuation
of a great industry: it is the only
means -untried to insure peeuuiaiy
success in the future operations of
cauning salmon on the Columbia.
Where institutions similar in make
up and intent to the proposed associ
ation have been organized elsewhere,
it has been found practicable ::nd
profitable to first have a conference
among all those who would be bene
fited by the proposed orgauizatiou, at
which meetiug tho purposes of tho
cooperative movement could bo
plainly set forth.
Tho purpose of the association is
to make salmon packiug on the Co
lumbia assume the aspect of a legiti
mate manufacturing business subject
to the same laws of supply aud de
mand that govern similar enterprises
There is no charity or philanthropy
about this thing. It is a precaution
ary measure and a safeguard against
ruinous loss, aud on that basis of
common interest it rests. Mutual
confidence and implicit compliance
with the rules of the organization
could but result to the enhancement
of the general welfare.
Iu brief the association might be
composed of a joint corporalo body.
composed of Columbia salmon pack
ers; with a president, secretary aud
board of directors, a codo of rules
drawn with care and strictly en en
eorced: this association to havo com
plete control aud absolute say re
garding the pack, its amount, price
and description. All supplies, tin,
twine, etc.. to be bought in cargo lots
at the most advantageous prices; tho
price of salmon to be set, and rigidly
adherodioj the discounts, interests,
reclamations, expense accounts, etc,
etc., to be saved: the exact coat of
the manufactured article to be ascer
tained, a price set ou tho manufac
tured article and the pack sold here
in Astoria. Say it was found that
tho salmon, packed in cases and ready
for shipment from the canneries cost
$3.70 a case: the association resolved
that the price for tho season should
beS4.25a case. That $4.25 a case
wonld represent a suro profit of 55
cents a case to every canner on the
river. There would be no trouble iu
getting that or figures proportionate
to the cost of productien: a profit in
jured on the season of $8,000 or $10,
000 to each canner, would be better
than the present lottery game where
a packer stands to win $20,-
000, but may lose an equal amount
If the commission men, the Sau Fran
cisco brokers, the Portland backers of
present canneries, tho Liverpool
agents, in a word the men who now
skim off the cream of prout and
leave the cauners the thin, blue, sour
residue; if they wanted to pay the
whole or any portion of the pack let
them have "the whole of it in God's
name, and make or break as best they
might. The canner would have g
dead sure thing: the speculators
could do the putting up aud putting
down and handle their purchase as it
suited them: the canner would
have a dead suro thing and could
look ou with equanimity at the
game whether the others lost or won.
Instead of each canner as at present,
buying little'jags of tin, twine, solder,
lead, lacquer, etc., all supplies could
be bought in large quantities: instead
of each canner as at present paying
brokerage, the exchange could trans
act its business for him: in this and
in other ways hundreds of thousands
of dollars annually wasted or lost to
the trade could be saved, retained
or used to advantage.
It is this or nothing, for men will
get tired of losing money after a
while. Similar schemes have worked
well elsewhere and made money for
those who joined forces and com
bined. Why not on the Columbia?
Of course there can be objections
raised, and very grave objections.
There can bo arguments against the
successful working of the plan that
would take more than the limits of a
newspaper article to answer. But
there is no possible objection or ar
gument against the idea that can not
be gotten over. "Columbia salmon
packers won't hold together." ''What
arc vou gcing to do with the cooper-
ntvc canneries?' "Canital is needed
t.n lmnilln IIimr thin, and that in
jar,,a quantity." These and a dozen
more objections will occur to the
reader. But there is no adverse ar
gument that is half so strong as that
for its adoption. With such an as
sociation there is success to till its
participants: withont it there is noth
ing but vexation, worry and pos

FOREIGN SALMON NOTES.
The market for salmon has shown
some decree of animation this week, the
result ot more numerous inquiries both
from the wholesale dealer and tho re
tailer and large transactions have been
concluded. Jot only have many cheap
parcels on the spot been cleared off. but
several contracts for arrival have been
entered into ou advanced terms, and
general firmness now exists. London
A good demand for salmon prevails
aud prices arc firm, although in face of
this "one large house has been quoting
as low as 17s. Current values may how
ever, be taken as lUs for Fraser river,
and 20s to 21s for Columbia river. The
excitement reported by our Liverpool
correspondent is not at all reflected
here; buyers demur to an advance, but
holders are equallv firm. Grocers' Ga
We have had an exciting market in
salmon, and advanced prices have been
realized, both for spot and forward par
cels, in which a good business has heen
done; and the retail trade are also tak
ing advantage of the present prices to
anticipate their requirements', and a
brisk trade has therefore heen effected
by dealers at the advanced rates. There
is now no spot Fraser river salmon to
he bought under 20s per case, and none
of the Columbia river under 20s 3d per
case. Forward paroels have been
eagerly purchased, and the few parcels
remaining are held fpr advanced figures,
which holders are confident of realizing.
The shipments en route from the Co
lumbia river are only 13;,000 cases, and
only two vessels have heen taken up for
British Columbia, their carrying capaci
ty being about 43,000 cases, so that in
the face of such figures, even present
prices are manifestly ahsurd, and a
substantial further advance is confi
dently expected within the next few
days. Correspondence London Gro
The past week has shown an amount
of activity in salmon unprecedented in
the history of the trade. The extreme
hand-to-mouth purchases of the past
twelve to fifteen months having com
pletely denuded the dealers and grocers
of stocks, it is discovered that when
they come in to buy there is nothing to
be bought. The steady every day con
sumption having taken off the stocks in
merchants' nanus, the extraordinary
position is before us of less than half
the necessary supplies for the next sea
son, almost every case of which is sold
tor torwara delivery. Another report
says ; "A strong demand for salmon to
arrive has manifested itself this week,
a very large proportion of this year's
Columbia river pack has already been
placed at better prices than have ruled
for a long time past. The superior
quality ot this year's pack, and the
ereatly diminished supply, naturally
gives buyers a confidence in the future
of salmon, which has not been equaled
for years past, baimon is not so easy
to buy on the spot, and prices are hard
ening slowly but surely, and the country
demand during the past week has been
very rooiw correspondence London
