WEDNESDAY MORNING,   AUGUST 6,   1913.
THE FISHING STRIKE.
The strike of the sockeye fishermen on the Fraser
river has sagged in the middle and, like a summer engagement, has dissolved.
There ai e several reasons for this abrupt end to the
walk-out pulled off on Sunday evening, but thc principal
ones are two. First, there should not have been any strike
at all and in the second place the chance to make good
money while the big sockeye run lasts was too much for
the strikers.
The fishermen tried to beat the old law of supply
and demand and failed.
It does not take any very hefty commercial brain to
���grasp the established rule that prices on a glutted market are lower than quotations where the demand exceeds
the supply; but failure to take note of this fact brought
on the strike and then killed it.
Earlier in the season the men who haul in the nets
agreed to take twenty-five cents a fish and seemed satisfied with that price. If twenty-five cents is a good figure
when the day's catch is running from ten to fifty sockeyes to a brat, it is too much to expect when the haul is
averaging from five hundred to a thousand. Arguing
from the other end: if twenty-five cents is a fair price
when salmon are running strong, as lhey are at present,
it is not enough when they arc scarce, as in the earlier
weeks of the summer.
In cutting from twenty-five to fifteen cents the can-'
ners followed an established rule of business and were
entirely within their rights irrespective of whether the
lower rate is fair or not. If it is not, the fault lies with
the fishermen themselves, who should have held out for a
higher than twenty-five cent price earlier in the season
to allow for a cut when the big run would enter the river.
As things have fallen out, both the canneries and the
men have lost money by the creation of a situation that
was altogether foolish and unnecessary.
A sage of authority has remarked that it's an ill wind
blows nobody food and there is one redeeming feature
to the strike. While tho se hundreds of idle nets were out
of the river, thousands of sockeyes got safely by on their
wav to the spawning grounds, which will mean a welcome
addition to the supply of the years to come.

A destructive analysis of Mr. Lloyd
ueorge's land-taxing policy and an ex-
posuri of Its failure In result are con-
inert In an article by Harold Cox
n the Edinburgh Review. Four years
'nve passed since the vote-catching
I propaganda, with Its attacks on the
hilies and land owners, was Btarted,
. ml it Is possible now to test ii by
'���   ie dry  light  of Btatlsties.
The budget estimates of the yield of
the Increment value, reversion, and
undeveloped laud duties for the whole
period aggregate ��946,000, and the
actual yield has boen ��223,430, Mr.
('.'X points oul:
"Up rn March Bl last the total yield
of the three duties was ��223,430    In
otl er words, nol only have the original
v.iguo prophecies as to the bounteous
i vii id t l' thi bo taxes proved to be without  foundation, but the three ear-fill

be chancellor of the exchequer estimated fi r a sovereign; he has recelv-
,i   Is,  8%d."
The OOEt of valuation and collection
'   [ th- three taxes is pul at   ��1,366,000
' y  Mr. I'll--, and as the yield was only
C233.430, he slates:
"The filial result of four years' working of  Mr,   Lloyd  Ueorge's    brilliant I
lontrivance   tor   paying for   dread -
naughts and old age pensions is a net
lost to the exchequer of ��1,133,000."
A Fallacy in "Futures."
i-i  1909, when  introducing his hud- '
���et,  the chancellor claimed  thai   the
taxes would produce an Increasing rev-j
-���linn ill the future.   On this point Mr. j
Cox observ s:
"i    is difficult  to discover any  rea-
son tor ever anticipating a large revenue frnm  any one of the three land i
���nine duties.   It Is true that undevel- \
iped  land duty shows, so far as the
'nst estimate Is concerned, an appre-
'iahle Increase   on   previous years���
namely,   an   estimated    UttHn.onil     this |
vear, as compared  with  an estimated ]
��100.000 last year.   Hut this estimated Increase���which is still In nublmus
Is based  on the calculation ihat, a
nslderable sum of arrears of duty.
io less than  ��240,000, will fall to bei
���i',:. rled   ill   tli"  present   year     As   a
-natter of fact the land value officials
ere  this  year  demanding  from   many
Ipeoplo undeveloped land duty for the
four  previous  years.    This method "f
-v.. lllng the estimates will necessarily
ease In the course of a few years, and
the area of land still remaining to lie
valued wlll not add any great sum to
', the vli Id of this tax."
'As regards reversion duty, the ul-
'iniate prospects are equally poor. This
duty Is an arbitrary impost upon those
('nnd owners w!io-?r- predecessors in title, In order to meet the convenience
;   I tillriers,   lei   land  at   low  ground
l-oiits, hoping to recoup  their    estate
when the reversions fell In.   Since this
���ei-v convenient form of letting Is now
-lenallzed   as if it wen- a crime, land
.wners wlll avoid it for the future: so
���hough   though   reversion   duty     mav
leld   a   substantial  sum    while    old
��� :���- s are falling In it. cannot be regarded as a permanent source of revenue.
"The increment value duty is found-
d on lh" assumption that the value of
���in- land in the United Kingdom is
necesrarlly going to rise very' greatly.
That i.s the kind nf assumption that
politicians and business men qnestion
While Mr. Lloyd Oeorge and his
Irlends ar" Btaklng their political rep-
ttations on ill- prospect of a rise in
the value of liritish land Kngiish land
owners are quietly Belling here and
buying land In Canada In view of tli"
heavy emigration now In progress the
'-tt- r    speculation    seems      likely      to
orove the more profitable, At any rat"
i is mo'.i Improbable that land in the
United Kingdom will rise se greatly

twenty years as to yield anv appreciable revenue In the way of Increment

Few pedestrians who had occasion
to pass the Koyal Hunk building gave
more than a passing glance at a cab
.-lauding at the door and except for
one or two who saw the messeugers
rarry the money in, the incident went
unnoticed.
The money was pul In small linen
Backs containing }6000 each and lying Iii the bottom of the cab. A bunk
official guarded it and checked the
bags as they were carried In, while
,i Becond man checked the sacks inside.
i onstable Lefebvre, on duty on st.
James Btreet, was the only uniformed guardian of the money: but moro
than a dozen plan clothes men were
tcatti red aboul Hie stroel to see thai
none of the "light fingered gentry"
of the city got awaj with one of the
hags.
Although it took more than an hour
to make the transfer, Constable Lefebvre said thai nol more than five per
cent ef the passcrsby realized what
was going on.
A movement extending Iroin Winnipeg to the coast to bring about the
elimination of all duty on building
material, Is about to be launched by
the Saskatoon builders' exchange as
the result of action taken at a recent
meeting of the hoard of direetora of
that body.
Kvery builders' exchange west of
Winnipeg will be asked to co-operate
In tin- movement wtth a view of bringing about an act of parliament to repeal all acts providing for duty on
building material.
Directors of the Saskatoon exchange
Indignantly declare that duty on
building materials is a rank Imposition
in the Canadian west, that it offers
absolutely no protection to the Canadian manufacturer because freight
rates from eastern points of manufacture an. even greater than the
duly togetiier with freight rati s from
American points, and thai the duty on
this class ��.f material is nothing more
or   less  than   a   form   of  revenue.
lliiilding is too essential to tin-
growth and developmenl of the countrv to be taxed as a source of revenue
and every western Canadian should
use ever, effort to bring about the
Importation of building supplies tree
of duty.
The matter will be placed before
the entire membership of the Saskatoon exchange at the next meet iiu:. hut
the secretary has been Instructed to
communicate Immediately with the
i.O'er exchangi s, acquainting them
with the proposed movement. The attitude of the other exchanges will be
made known at the next regular meeting.

have been built in 2'i.il months, the
German in 35.5 mouths (though in
thiB the six months occupied In the
official trials is Included), the Amer.

Austrian  In  30.25 months.
The armaments nf the vessels
now building nre given with some res' rve, and In the case of the German
ships are now known to he Incorrect.
Thus tin- two German battleships 'ni''
down this year carry either the iron
or the 161n. gun. and if the latter
lhey aie more heavily armed than
anv British ship yet designed,
Germany lias throe battle cruisers

Ihe slipping of the eartli on the Long
lull   is  due  to  a  general  movement
of the river bank.   Another examination of the depression in tlio roadwa)
was made ibis week when considerable  evidence   of   further   sagging  of
the   bank   was   noted.    'I'he   commissioners will submit a report upon tin*
whole  matter  at   the   meeting  of   tlle
city   council   on   Monday.
The   sudden   sagging   of   lhe   roadway at this point occurred about  six
weeks ago and  an  investigation   was
at  once made as to tlle cuiiso.    After |
tests whloh lasted two or three days
a  spring  was  located,  and   for   some
lime  li  was  thought   that   this  might
lie the cause of tlie trouble.    As a re
suit of tiie continued movement    of

are now- convinced that onlv n goner
nl sliding of the bank would account

FISHERMAN'S BODY  FOUND
IN   RIVER  BELOW CITY
The Fraser river gave up another
of its dead last evening when the
police recovered the body of a fisherman, which was found in the water
near the wharf of the ll. C. Manufacturing company,  l.ulu island.
Some of the employees noticed the
body floating In llle water and.notified the pollce. Detective Burrows
removed it to tlie Murchle undertaking parlors.
The body, which was badly decomposed, was evidently that of a fisherman, according to the clothing and a
number of fish cheques issued by tbe
MonJ-t cannery in  May.
The man wits about five feet eight
inches in height and wore a dark
shin and suit and long rubber boots.
His evident connection with the
Monk cannery leads to the impression
lbat in- was lisliing for spring salmon
up the river past the bridge and after
being drowned, the body had floated
down stream to the two forks of the
river.
An  inquest  will  be held some time
today.
"MEN WHO ^^^^^^

bank in which he is employed, is   ar- j
rested   and   sentenced   to   ten   years'
Imprisonment.   Ruth, bis wife, pays
him frequent visits. At tlle prison
factory, under the old doctor's regime,
whether a convict is well or not, he
is put to jt'ork. Oeorge, who is not
very strong, is examined by Dr. Randolph, the new prison doctor, and is
found to be unfit for the labor. He
is sent to the prison hospital. This
move on the part of the new doctor
invokes the animosity of the warden >.
in charge of Mortimer, and he writes ,
Ruth that she will not Le permitted j
to see her husband again.
The girl conies at once to Ihe. prison
and asks the warden how her hus
band is. Ile replies that he Is well
and happy. But just at this moment
(Ieorge is brought in from the hospital. Sbe hears her husband speak
lln very favorable terms of the now
doctor and she determines to follow
him home 'that night.
The prison factory foreman sees
her with the doctor and brings tbe
news to the warden. They plan to
have the doctor removed and to get
a Bwom statement from Ruth to tlie
effect that she had been at the doctor's home. This she at lirst refuses
to do, but seeing how cruelly they
treat a dying convict, and fearing
that her husband v. Ill be treated ac
cordingly. she promises. A host of
reporters are brought in to bear the
woman's story. As she lj beginning
to tell it Oeorge conies out juot in
time to hear how his wife accuses
the doctor. He denounces her accusa
tions and tells the assemblage how
good the doctor lias been io him.
After his passionate defence of the
doctor, (ieorge falls dead. The reporters force the warden to resign
showing him no mercy for his fiend
isb act. whil> the doctor gently leads
