of Men.
The   dyking   operations     on     Lulu
Island have been temporarily suspended i n account of the inability of Mr.
Kwen to secure men to carry on the;
work.    The majority  of the men  engaged   in   lbe   work   were   fishermen i
and the advent of the elusive sockeye j
proved   too   much   for   them.      They
therefore exchanged their shovels for
nets  and   their  picks  for  oars.    The
wcrk  had been going on  merrily  for I
the  past   few  weeks and  about  three
fourths   of  the  task  is  already   com-i
