Light Run of Salmon-
According to H. E. Gethiog, man
ager for the local salmon fishermen,
the present year Is one of the poor
est seasons for fishing that the men
have ever struck. Catches are small
and two or three or the boat have
discontinued the business for the
present. 'Mr. Gethlng states that up
to the 12th of the present month the
run of salmon had been very light
ait the mouth of the iRogue, while on
the I'mpqua conditions were little or
no 'better. iPurlng the dry weather
the fish hover near the mouth of
streams and a heavy storm 1 prob
