SALMON FOR MASSACHUSETTS STREAMS George II Graham Fish and Game Commissioner of Massachusetts believes that the Merrimack river can come back as a salmon stream streamIn In 19151C Massachusetts realized that the sal ¬ mon could be reestablished in the Merrimack Mr Graham had found on a trip to Oregon City that theW411aniette river running through that city con ¬ tained for more pollution than the Merrimack yet in spite of all this 250 tons of salmon were taken out of the Willamette back of the mills discharging this pollution in one season seasonThe The Merrimack lias already been liberally stocked with salmon from tlie Pacific coast from three to six inches in length It takes salmon four years to mature Jn another year Mr Graham expects to find salmon in tlie Merrimack MerrimackThe The legislature of Massachusetts had been asked to appropriate 15000 to build a new fishway at Lawrence to take the place of tlie old one now gone If people find that salmon are coining back jn the Merrimack means will be devised to eliminate pol ¬ lution from its waters
