The Glendale News tells of a cer
tain recent day when the thermome
ter registered 110 lu Gron ts Pans. It
does not give the source of its infor
mation. On the day in question,
which was a hot one, the official ob
server recorded 103 as the highest tem
perature. The Courier recently pub
lished a comparison of the maximum
temperatures of Grants Pans and Glen
dale for a period of ten days. 'I lie
comparison was not at alt in favor of
Glendale bnt the figures were taken
from the records of the voluntary ob
servers cf the two places and broken
thermometers on sunny sides of houses
were not consulted.
Politics & Game.
Politics is a game. The offices are
the prizes. There has teen a change
in the Portland, Oregon, postmaster
thin. Presumably all of the candi
dates were equally competent, because
from first to last not one word was
said as to their fitness Mr oflloe, but
the sole discuslsou was, and a very
anxious discussion, which one can the
machine least afford to offend by turn
ing him down? Young people should
remember that polities is a gome.

With thuir noses pointed steadily op
hi ream, every muscle strained aud
quivering in every nerve are thousands
of lordly salmon working their way
np through the rapid waters of Rogue
river, now and then meeting obstruc
tions but never loug delayed. At the
duin of the Condor Water & Power Co.
at uo'u rtay, tney are to l seen in
black masses congiegated in schools
until the river current is literally
packed with fish, at times their jag
ged fins protruding from the water
resembling a minature mosquito fleet
with blackened sails. Here they lie
for hours and sometimes for days
swimming back aud forth studyicg
the situation before making a final
lash fo regain the higher water above
tliu dam. Many of them make frantic
leaps upward in a vain cudeavgr to
rise above the 20 feet of falling water

mil spent the entire day there watch
ing tlie great big follows lying at the
bed of tlio river or crowding up under
the fulls. All day long the fish were
there just as many at night as were
here iu the morning. A temporary
llshway or ladder is placed at the north
end of the dam and there was the in
teresting point. Salmon of all sizes,
many of them three aud four feet in
length were working their way upward
through the swift water flowing over
the rocks and then entered tho ladder,
an inclined trough o" flume about four
feet wideband reaching from the top
of the dam to a pool of water below.
VYitiuu the mime are crgsspieces or
rests above which tho salmon tan stop
and rest if necessary in their upward
way. Iu the early hours of ihe morn
ing the rlsh can bo siveu emerging from
the upper cud of Ihe fish way at the
rate of from 100 to 200 per hour. This
continues until the heat of the day
when the salmon run iu fewer num
bers. Tho place of thosu that go to
up tho ladder is filled by the continu
ous stream which coiuei up from bo-
low. The greater number of fish go
up the regular tlshway which is led
by ihe water flowing through the
power canal aud mingles with the
waters of the river at tit)0 or 800 feet be
low the dam. Here the fish have been
counted, 1)00 an hour going up the
canal. During the early days of the
salmon run the fish kept pushing
steadily up the main stream and nn
past the regular fish ladder and would
not turn back. A picket ftm.e was
built iu the water at the entrance of
the llshway to compel them to turn
aside mid ascend the regular place pro
vided for t lu-m. Something tlmu, of
i urse, hud to be dime for the fish al
ready past this point, aiuT men wee
employed to scoop them up with a dip
net ami carry them up over the dam.
This is hard work and I can testiy
hat a salmon which when dead will
weigh HO pounds, will when caught iu
a uvi plunge about until his weight
seems double or treble. This process
was also too slow and an extra rlsh
ladder was constructed for temporary
list-, the company Is now engaged iu
blasting out a tlshway iu the bedrock
which will lead up to tho woodcll'lish
ladder nud this w ill be replaced w ith
enm rettt work.
I.vetythiug possible has been done
to assist the salmon iu their journey
to the spa wiling grounds and that the
reports that rlsh lire dying are clrcu-
latd by cither people who iiass by on
the trains aud see the schools of sal
mon or by fishermeu uliu have a desire
to retaliate because they are made to
,'liseive the law prohibiting fishing
w it liiu c.tio feet of a duin.
Any hostility I might have had tow-
ard the company was changed to admi
ration for (lie enterprise IheT have cx
ihiled and the spleudi I work they
li ive done. The dam which has tukt u
two ye rs to complete, is a Handsome
