l,.l.r. Tho canneries seeking to hold
down the price paid for bulk lish, the
fishermen striving tooMiitn greaier re
turn for their labor. As is usually true
in all such controversy, both sides are
able to advance good reasons for their
stand, both ask only for justice, yet
.,..iih..r will concede HUincientiy to
the other to purmit an amicable settle
niaanilsfiintion has been growing
among tho fishermen for several years
paut and 1912 culminuted m a atriKe
which forced tho canneries to pay tho
highest price ever obtained ai tins
point four cents a pounu ior aaimou
.i..ik..,r..il at the plants. The can
nery men this season claimed tho mar
ket for l'.'l- eatch liau neon very ioor
and they still had on hand tho greater
part which thoy were holding at a risk
and therefore would bo utterly unable
to pay more than three or three and a
half cents per Kund.
The fishermen put forth tho claim
that Tillamook Hiilmon ahould bo us
valuable as Columbia Klver lish where
tho canneries pay from llvo to soyen
cents and Btill seem to be paying divi
dends. The cannery men win ma mi
mil tho quality of Tillamook aalmon
being as good straight through ua the
Astoria pack. Tho fishermen here -exemplifying
the Astoria fleet, formed
11 union ami aro endeavorintt to mar
ket thoir own catch, consigning it to

succeeding to the full all they antici
patod. They believe it will be possible
to allow the union fishermen, delivering
to them practically, live cents per
pound during tho season.
Tho Astoria FWiermon's Union has
been very successful In its operations
for thu past twenty years anil it is this
fact that lends cotirngo to the men hure.
At the present time about 30 fishermen
are delivering to tho union and as the
season advances the number will likely
double. Two tons aro handled daily.
About 200 men engage in tho occu
pation while tho season is nt its height
at various points in Tillamook County.
Fivo canneries are maintained and tho
total valuation of fish for the 1912
catch reached tho astounding sum of
J400,000.00 which tolls its own story as
to the worth of the industry to this
community. Two cunneries uro oper
ated at Nehalem for accommodating
fieh taken from Nehalem Bay and Hiv
