• The Pacific coast salmon canning industry has passed the half
i century mark, and still appears
I in fair position of stability despite recurrent predictions of ultimate extermination. The biggest salmon "pack on record was
in 1913, when there was an output of 8,063,000- cases. Last
year there was a drop to 6,064,-
000 cases, while two years hence
the recurrent "big runs" will
probably shove the figures up
another notch.

Iii the American civil war, men
like Ford and Bryan were shouting for peace, at one stage, on
the South's terms or on some
compromise. Lincoln paid no
attention to such hollow noise.
Though himself a great pacifist,
he saw no meaning in the word
"peace" if it, meant a peace of
slavery more cruel than war.
"No   living   man,"   he  said,
"loves peace more than 1 do, but
il may be necessary to put the
foot down (irmly.   The only call!
nf humanity now is to conquer'
peace through unrelenting warfare.   War, antl war alone, is the
duty of us all."   That is the way
any man with a spire in him andi
a conscience in him feels now in
this country.
Influential persons, especially!
as the civil war dragged on in |
1864, urged Lincoln to treat.   He'
