“Resolved, That a copy of this
resolution be furnished to the dele
gates of both political parties to the
slate conventions, with the request
that the same be read to the res
pective state conventions.”
Here was the first riflle in the
sweet flow of harmony that nestled
over the assemblage. Some were
afraid the resolutions would prove
a boomerang, or that somebody
wouldn’t like the proceeding.
"We don’t want to doany thing at

Chinook salmon, or sixteen times
as many as are annually caught in
the Columbia river, will be turned
loose at Ontario this spring. The
fish are now scarcely more than an
inch long and they will po down
the Snake and Columbia rivers and
out into the Pacific ocean, where
they will grow to maturity. Four
or five years hence many of them
will return, weighing on an average
of 30 pounds each and worth to the
fishermen 5 cents a pound. If only
one out of every 20 returns the
hatchery will more than keep up
the supply of salmon.
The eggs taken at Ontario are
from the best specimens of Royal
Chinook salmon, thus increasing
the number of fish that makes the
best canned product. The reputa-
tation of Columbia river salmon,
already the best in the world, will
be further strengthened by this arti
ficial propogation of the best vari
The site at Ontario has the ad
vantage of a never failing water
supply and distance from the ocean.
The fish that ascend the river the
farthest are the ones that come into
the river the earliest and have flesh
of the best flavor.
