VOL. VI., NO. 661. JUNEAU, ALASKA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1915. PRICE TEN CENTS. Allies to take the weimsive in west, indicated ?PINK' FISIt LIKELY TO COME HIGH If the scheduled run of "pink" fish falls to materialize on Puget Sound ?and it Is now twenty clays overdue ?Southeastern Alaska salmon can ners this year will make fortunes. Only in this district has the sal mon industry fared well this season, according to cannerymen now In the city. From Y&kutat to Bristol Bay, whero the industry depends solely on the "red" fish, the season has been the poorest In many years, the pack falling 60 per cent, short of Its aver age mark. In some points in Bristol Bay, and at Chlgnlg and Afognak. the pack Is' said to have been but SO per cent, of what was canned last year. Great **Plnk" Year Here Pink salmon in unlimited number* have been the catch in Southeastern Alaska this summer and it is because of the great abundance of that varie ty of salmon that has enabled all Southeastern Alaska canneries to reg ister record packs. If the pink run Is a failure on Puget Sound, and all signs point that way, Southeastern Alaska's pack will control the mar ket?at the expense of the Sound and Westward canners. RejJbrts from Se attle are that only <10,000 cases of red salmon have been packed for the en tire Puget Sound district, which has a canning capacity of 5,000.000 cases. About 1.100,000 cases has been the av erage pack on Puget Sound. Pinks May Go Soaring A prominent cannervman told The Empire last night that he would not be surprised to see pink salmon quot ed in the opening prices at $5.00 a case. Sixty-five cents a case is the usual opening price for that species of salmon, but as the red salmon pack in Southeastern Alaska this sea son fell off considerably, the pinks will be the headliner. it Is believed. Don. Davis, captain of the Tee Har bor cannery tender Alexander, who was in Juneau last night, says that the Tee Harbor plant has packed 48, 000 cases, and is now winding up its i affairs for the season. The Alexander i brought in 2500 salmon to the JuneauI Cold Storage Company, which were caught in that company's trap near Tee Harbor.
