long Journey, when some one had

Astoria, May 19th, 1S94.
If Columbia salmon packers are not
to blame, who? . . .. ,
. A child, amoung you of some Consid
erable experience covering many ytars,
Is here to tell you, tint from the prac
tice of canning salmon and other arti
cles of food on the Pacific coast it is
imposslblo for Columbia river to es
cape the odium common to "do-overs"
complained of in the American Grocer,
as you quoted In Saturday's issue of
tha Astorian. The ahomliiable prac
tice and carelessness of treating "do
overs" as they' are treated In some
places is sufficient to dlBgust any per--son
of knowlolge against the uso of
canned salmon. The seat of the whole
trouble is that a wholesome article is
sacrificed to bo collect speed, not for
cheapness, but big profits.
I have frequently wondered, how it
was that comparatively modern canned
salmon tasted so different to salmon
canned in earlier days. I had. my sus
picions from the nature if Its taste,
and now. my suspicions are confirmed,
and I unhesitatingly say that the men
and means employed are at fault. Bet
ter to supply a safe, wholesome article
at little more cost, than to continue
the evil practice now in vogue in somo
places and thus keep up the credit of
this noble river's pack. I might say
more anon. There is a cure for the
existing evil, if packer are inclined to
adopt it. Yours, Kien Baby,
