Insuring the Perpetuation of the Industry W WO lines of action are essential to the perpetuation of the salmon fishing industry of Alaska—legislation designed to temporarily decrease the pack and constructive effort toward increasing the supply. For many years the more responsible and representative element in the Salmon Canning Industry has been working ceaselessly to procure legislation which would insure sufficient escapement to the spawning beds to adequately stock them and at the same time work the least possible harm to themselves and the fishermen of Alaska. In addition to lending their influence to the passage of such protective legislation, the packers have expended and are still expending large sums of money annually in fighting the natural enemies which beset the salmon at every side. Experts have repeatedly stated that the Dolly Varden trout and the tern each year, destroy more salmon than are packed in all Alaska’s canneries. A group of canners, which spent $25,000 during 1922 in the extermination of these enemies to the industry, found that the stomach of the average three pound dolly contained 150 salmon fry, and later, during the migration period, twenty yearling salmon. These twenty yearling salmon at maturity would have been worth approxi mately $16.00 on the market when canned. Some of Alaska’s salmon packers have for years been carrying on a crusade against these deadly enemies and many more are becoming interested along these lines. In addition, they have been active in clearing the streams of obstructions, have worked in conjunction with the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries in charting and cleaning, out the spawning beds, and have furnished boats to the Bureau for the patrolling of the ground and protection of the spawning salmon. Between the practical packer with an investment to protect and the intelligent Alaskan with a great natural resource which he desires to see perpetuated, and at the same time producing wealth for the community, there can be no point of difference. All that is required to bring about closer co-operation is closer acquaintance--more complete understanding. The Canning Industry of Alaska NOTICE OF APPLICATION U. S. Non-Mineral Survey .. No. 1420.

Energy Brings Results Despite Prison Bars (By Associated Press) HARBIN, Manchuria, Jan. 24.—For the last two years M. Krasnoshekoff, once premier of the Far Eastern Re public, has been in jail; he was found guilty of embezzlement. But prison life has not succeeded in curbing the former statesman’s energy. He has written four books on banking, for which he received $4, 000; he has organized among his pri son mates a lucrative business and making woodcuts and engraving on copper, and altogether he is doing so well that he has declined a re lease from confinement and the of fer of a position with a local bank.

MENACE TO FORESTS SEEN IN HEAVY CROP OF CHRISTMAS TREES (By Associated Press) OLYMPIA, Wash., Jan. 24.—With ' commercial cutters taking an estim ated toll of 1,000,000 Christmas trees 1 annually from privately owned logged off lands in the state of Washington, their activities are becoming an im- 1 portant factor in the already serious problem of reforestation, according to Fred E. Pape, state supervisor of for estry. The Christmas tree cut, he de clared, now equals the number of ma ture trees ordinaryily felled each sea son in lumbering operations. “The menace of the annual holiday onslaught is all the more serious,” Su pervisor Pape stated, “when the class of trees selected and the manner in wrhich the cutters proceed is taken in to consideration. If they followed a thinning out process, their activities might even be beneficial, but, because of the economic problems involved, the method followed by the cutters is one which is most destructive to the growing timber. “Purchasers demand trees which are well formed and this kind can be secured in large quantities only where the growth is rather scattered and needs no artificial thinning. In order to render their operations pro fitable, the cutters select such tracts and then make a clean sweep, as their ratio of profits is increased largely by the number of marketable trees taken from a given acreage. State laws prevent the cutting of Christmas trees on state property.” There is now, however, a growing belief on the part of some legal au thorities, Supervisor Pape said, that such cuttings on privately owned lands can be prevented on the gener al principle that private interests must always be subservient to public welfare. In addition to supplying Yuletide decorations for state residents, Wash ington Christmas trees are now being shipped to many other state and even to the American island possessions.
