Warden FInley and Master Fish War

a fish hatchery would be built on tho
Deschutes river In the vicinity of
Ilend In the spring. They regard
thla as on excellent location owing:
to the fact that It will be very con
venient to distribute fry to the vari

Oregon which will bo stocked from
time to time.
