FISH AND GAME FOR THE PKO
l'LK. ThP people in western states are
intensely interested in the fight be-
ing made in their behalf by Fish and
Game Commissioner Ross of Portland,
Oregon. Mr. Ross is taking the po.
sition that fish and game, including
shell .fi-sh of all kinds, belong to all the
people of the state primarily.

and other sources of sea food supply,

IT SEEMS REASONABLE.
A. Fisher, petroleum geologist,
declares this country s oil reserves
are being rapidly depleted, while con-
sumption is steadily mounting, so that
higher prices for both crude and gas-
cline are inevitable.
Average cost of drilling a well in-
creased from S10.000 in 1913 to $22.-
000 in 1923.
It is exuected tthat our country's
demand for petroleum will reach
800,000,000 barrels this year and the
most optimistic estimates of domes-
tic production for 1925 amount to
only 700,000,000 barrels.
ConsiiderinK growing demand and
approaching depletion oi reserves, it
seems certain that higher prices for
both crude and gasoline must pre.
vail in this country in future over an
extended period, except for temporary
discovery of flush pools.

MORE NORMAL MINING CONDI
TIONS. Conditions in the mining industry
are much improved over a year agj.
In the spring of 1924, the country wis
facing a period of uncertainty, due to
the political situation, which brought
about a depression in trade during
the summer months. Today business
conditions are sound, and there is
i-very reason to believe that the coun
try will have a prosperous year.
Copper companies are curtailing
production .slightly because a fur
