?***'"
Sir,— The Committee appointed pursuant to the provisions
of the Public Enquiries Act on recommendation of the"House of
Commons realizing that the matte*- of the British Columbia
^fisheries, which -fas submitted t'c them for investigation, is
of great importance, and having in mind the fact that all
interested in the industry are entitled to the earliest possible notice of impending changes affecting the industry, beg
to submit, pending the final submission of a full report, the
following recommendations in which they have unanimously concurred, except as hereinafter mentioned.
It is of course to be understood that the Commission are
absolutely unanimous in the following and recommend their
adoption without any avoidable delay, nevertheless the Commission will at a future date submit for the approval of Par-
liament a comprehensive report of their finding, together with
the reasons therefor.
1, Gas Boats in District Mo. 2. - Your Commission have
fully considered this matter, and recoreeend for adoption that
on the opening of the fishing season of lp/P  in District He,
27-the use of motor boats be permitted.
2, Japanese Licenses, - The Commission find that the  •
number of arhite men and Indians holding licenses is not in any
way commensurate with the number of Orientals, and as a consequence the Commission recommends that there be a reduction
on all licenses issued to fishermen other than white fishermen
' and Indians of ^0 per cent in 1923, this to include all methods
of fishing, and that licenses issued in District No. 2 to others
than whites and Indians be attached to the canrers pro rata.
Local residents and returned sold7.ers to be given preference in
all districts.
3, License fees, - The Commission are strongly of the
opinion that the present system of exacting license fees is
of such a character as to eliminate progressive citizens from
engaging in the industry and also bec.rs heavily upon an industry which is already taxed to the limit.  The Commission feels
that a person should not be called upon to' pay extravagant
license fees ivithout being assured of an adequate return, and
to that end it unanimously and energetically "recommends the folio-ring:-
.........The f ee. fox. an.-...abalo.ne Aicen.s.e shall-^e—r-rW. -fl.OO
For crab license  shall t>e    1.00
Herring or pilchard drag-seine  license         5.00
Herring or pilchard purse-seine  license   .......     5.00
Salmon drift  or  gill-net   license   ,      1,00

, Salmon purse-seine license ....... , '.  20 -.00
Salmon trap-net license       50.00
Sturgeon gill-net or drift-net license   ......    1.00
Annual fee for   salmon cannery license, we recomaend it
si77.ll be '$2-0.  for  said license and  in addition 10  cents  for   each-
case of 1+S 1-pound cans,  or the equivalent thereto,  of  sockepe
salmon,  and 5 cents for  each case  of  any other  species of  salmon,
.
■-..-.. iff-
- - 2 -
4-.  Drag and Purse Seines. - Your Committee submit and
recommend for your approval that drag and purse-seines should
not be permitted to be operated save where demonstrated to be
the only practical .effective and reasonably economic method
of catching fish, and in cases where purse-seines and drag-
seines are permitted, the boundary to be moved out to not
less than f mile from the mouth of the creek or stream, or
further if in the discretion of the Chief Inspector it is
deemed advisable'.  The Commission most strenuously urges
and recommends that in cases where drag-seines or purse-
seines are permitted, none other than white British subjects
and Indians (natives) be employed. This recommendation to
be most imperatively enforced,
S  Cowichan District,- Inside of a line drawn in Cowichan
Bay, from Separation point to Cherry creek, that no fishing be
allowed by net,, except as provided for Indians, Neither in
ail waters south ox   Toe aine drawn from Graves point to Erskine
point, and to a point drawn from Separation point to Musgrave
point, including the writers of Sansan narrows and Bourgone and
Maple Bay, shall ar-.y fishing be allowed in these waters by
net or live bait *
6, Licenses for cod fishing for commercial purposes to
be issued without fee*
7. Close Season for Salmon. - That all the words in
clause S, on page 10',' of the Regulations as found in the last
five lines, of said paragraph, commencing at the word "provided"
in the said fifteenth line, be struck out.
0, .Weekly Close Time. - The Commission recommends that
the close season for salmon fishing be in all parts of British Columbia from 6 a.mn* Saturday to 6 p.m. on the following
Monday of each week, provided, however, that this shall not
apply to salmon trolling as provided in subsection D of section 27 of the Regulations.
9*  Fines for Illegal Fishing. - In this connection the
Commission feels thai penalties as provided for in the laws
at present extant are unduly oppressive and harsh in many
instances, and they therefore r ecommerid that the law be
amended so as to make confiscation or forfeiture for a
violation of the laws a permissive rather th.an an imperative
act, The Commission have found thovt there is a great deal
of fishing done during the close season and in closed areas
and also the use 01 mare apparatus then that permitted by
law, and \70 recoomenl that drastic action be taken to prevent such abuses of ahe law.
10.  Herring■ - Your Commission are strongly of the
opinion and recommend that no purse-or drag-seine be permitted
to be operated for the catching of herring in Na.naimo harbour
and Departure Bay,  Your Commission after investigation realize the possibilities for the development of the jr.ild cured
herring industry, and a'ould strongly recommend that the Government encour.age said industry by making experiments with
steamers equipped as drifters, and make any other experiments
which may be necessary. • .

on halibut be enforced dating from about the 15th of November
to the 15th of February in each yOar, and that experiments, be

where said fish are to be found and as to the advisability

and prospecting with regard to habits of said fish.

operations could be suspended except that two hatcheries* be
kept in operation to experiment p.eith the new proposed-system,
and that a certain amount of the moneys how spent in hatohery
operations be used for the is clearing of streams, obstructions in rivers and improving the Spawning grounds for natural

Commission recommends that a-bounty should be placed upon
the catching of these dog fish and encouragement should be

and comprehensively, the majority of your commissioners,
consisting of Mr. Chairman Duff, H.P., Mr, H. C. Dickie, M.P.,
Mr. Alfred Stork, M,P,, and Mr. A. .7. Nsill, M.P., hsve-
agreed to recommend to the proper authorities that a close"
season of five years for Gockeye salmon fishing on the Fraaer
River and its tributaries and all coast waters leading up $0 the
same ^e instituted for a term of five years, provided
Americans do the same on Puget Sound, and that an International
Commission be appointed consisting of representatives of the
state of Washington and of the dominion of Canada to govern
the. matter of regulations during the said period and during
the term thereafter, this to embrace the right to deal with
all kindred subjects. Commissioner A. G. McQuarrie and
Commissioner L. H. Martell, M.P., dissented from the foregoing
and reserved the right to submit alternative proposals.
Your Commission also had the benefit of a conference with
Mr. C. E. Garfield, representing the Alaska Fisheries Commission in re the Naas and Alaska, salmon fisheries and a.s a
result of said conference your Commission recommends that
steps be taken with a view to having this matter dealt with
between the parties interested,

when this Commission began its operations any fishery matters
in the way of regulations or other matters apart from routine
should have been given to the veess'during the Commissions
operations.  The Commission has, however, thoroughly considered
the halibut industry and. it. recommends that a close season be

apart from the Department of Marine and Fisheries, should K?

the Fisheries both in Ottawa and British Columbia should in
the public interest be undertaken instanter.
Re Orders in Council. - It is felt by the Commission
that having regard "to the exigencies of the service that no
Order in Council should be promulgated, without due notice
of its effect epon the fishing industry and those engaged
in it first hiving been given as far as reasonably possible.
Naturalisation Papers. - Whilst realizing that the_
matter of the methbol of granting naturalization papers is
beyond the scope of this Commission, yet your Commission
have found that there has been a flagrant abuse of the same
in so far as Orientals are concerned.  The Commission
therefore recommends that all naturalization papers in thp
Province of British Columbia in so far as they affect Orientals, be called in and revised,.and that in future whilst

first being attached as well as finger prints, in accordance with the usual conditions approved by law.  No Oriental
should receive a return of his naturalization papers unless
he complies with the provisions that should be made by the
department to protect wholesale fraud.
Tn conclusion your Commission submits that the foregoing
is but a meagre outline of the matters which came before them,-
the foregoing is respectfully submitted as an interim
memorandum.

Wq are  just in receipt of telegram from Tacooa  to the

It is possibUi that we may be   able to move a srfcall quantity
of fish to Kobe,  but matters   are  verj.   indefinite and we thought
better to advise youtfaceor dingly,  as we do not  think it advisable
to  get big quantities  of fish packed up.

Replying to your favor of the 18th,, in regard to siae
of herring boxes,- the ends of these boxes are cut 22-gw long and
. A) l>j.
12 w wide.  The sides are cut 42w long and 12" wide, and 1" thick,

To figure out the number or cubic feet in a box, we make the end of
the box 14M wide, by 7/\P*   long.   This makes 3^3 square inches in
4
the end.   Box is 4-2" long, multiply 3^3 by 42, which makes lU,4o6
cubic inches in the box.   Divide this number by 1728, (.the number
of cubic'inches in a foot) which makes 8; 537 cubic xxxksgjs feet in a
box.

Dear Sirs:-
Please refer to Vile X-
Referring to your letter of Marell 3rd arid Claim for overcharge
on Salt ^erring.
We are advised by the Freight Clerk on the Steamer who
measured the boxes, that the measurement was as follows:- 1'3" X 2'1» x 3'7"
or 9'4" each.
The writer has personally measured a number of shipments and has
found that the measurement v.ill always run over the measurement as given by
the packers, who usualy give us the dimentions of the shocks, as ordered
from the mills, but tlae measurements do not conform to the specification.
At any rate the boxes were carefully measured and our bill of lading
made in accordance with measurement obtained and I think you will agree
that we are entitled to freight charges on tine actual measurement.
Yours truly;

Dear Sirs:-
Please refer to File X
I have your letter of March 3rd with reference to your
claim for overcharge on shipment of Salt Herring on s.S. "Minnesota*
in December,
These boxes were measured at the Docks and reported to us
p  91 4« each, and on that basis there is no overcharge
as measuring
When the steamer returns here next week, 1 will look into
the matter further and if I find that any mistake was made, we will
arrange settlement.
Possibly you will find that the larger cases were used if you
will make enquiry from the saltery.

HERRING .FISHING
We understand that efforts are being made at ottawa
to enact the following legislation,.
1 That none other than white British, subjects and i
Indians'be employed on drag or purse seines.
2 That no purse seine or drug seine be permitted to
be operated for catching Herring in Hanaimo Harbour and
departure Bay.
In this connection stxfck we wish to state we were
the founders of the salt herring industry in Tfanaino
some eighteen years ago, there being no use. whatever
for herrigs in any volume prior to that time.
At great labour and expense we established a market-
in China and Korea and built the business up to an export
of some 20000 tons annually.
¥e built wharves and salteries'■_  prcured. fleets of
fishing boats, nets & etc, the expenditure of which'ran
well over #100.000,00 the majority of which would be a
total loss to us in the event of this change of legislation.
All our supplies in the shape of boxes, salt, gasoline,
oil clothing & etc. are purchased in British ^olumbia,
the expenditure amounting to many thousands of dollars,
besides which much employment is given to local coasting
boats,, scows, tugboats &c.
z We would very much appreciate your efforts to have
this matter annulled, as should any such change go into
effect we feel a very heavy injusticexwould be done to
ourselves. Vancouver, B« C. Dec. 14th, 1920

but "express* Pie opinion that'PtfflrASpc SAieatal action was unfovt-uiafccy'^^imed,^
and calculated seriously to hamper the^iuBiissitmein. their,.eopsideratioii of "sevteaA
m'atters, rlotabl'y the halibut situation m its international aspsjcf, and' also the
question of reduction in license to oA°e, Oian whites and Indians. The, -Commission also deplores the fact that wheiiAthis Commission began its operations any
fishery matters in the waysof regulatiopiAr other matters apart from routine should
have been given to the press during tli^H Commission's operations. The Commission
has, however, thoroughly considered theffkalihui industry and it recommends that a
close season be placed upon halibut. \fie said close season tp begin November 15
and end on February 15. The Commisswn further recommends that an international
arrangement be made towards the secuJtwa' of the said close season in extra territorial waters, and we have the assurance of the Washington Fisheries Board that
they will render aid towards assistingV'the said arrangement being arrived at on
the part of the United States Federal authorities.
Organization.—In all parts of Britph Columbia there is a demand as is felt
obtains in all places in Canada where jlie fishing industry is of paramount importance that ever since Confederation, thl fishing industry has not received the consideration its importance so adequately '^deserves. Witness after witness prominent
in the fishing industry, both from the strpidpoint of merchant and fisherman, strongly
accentuated the fact that there should be a Minister of Fisheries, with an organization under him thoroughly qualified andtso organized as to give the fishing industry
the consideration which it properly dei'^rves. The Commission will subsequently
submit a full and comprehensive report hut suffice it to say for the purpose of this
memorandum that all persons intimately connected and associated with the fishing
industry demand that the matter of al minister with practical knowledge of the
fisheries, and a thoroughly competent stiff be no longer temporized with or unduly
delayed. A new Department of Fisheries, separate and apart from the Department
of Marine and Fisheries, should be established without delay, and thorough reorganization of the fisheries both in Ottaw'i and British Columbia should in the public
interest be undertaken instanter.
Re Orders in Council.-—It is felt by the Commission that having regard to the
exigencies of the service that no Order in Council should be promulgated without
due notice of its effect upon the fishing industry and those engaged in it first
having been given as far as reasonably possible.
Naturalization Papers.—Whilst realizing that the matter of the method of
granting naturalization papers is beyond the scope of this Commission, yet your
Commission have found that there has been a flagrant abuse of the same in so far
as Orientals are concerned. The Cc.mmission therefore recommends that all
naturalization papers in the province of British Columbia in so far as they affect
Orientals, be called in and revised, and that in future whilst it is piot desirable to
naturalize Orientals, yet if this is done-the papers be not granted to them without
a photograph first being attached as well as finger prints, in accordance with the
usual conditions approved by law. ISO Oriental should receive a return of his
naturalization papens unless he complies with the provisions that should be made by
the department to protect wholesale fraud.
In conclusion your Commission suTmiits that the foregoing is but a meagre
outline of the matters which came before them,—the foregoing is respectfully submitted as an interim memorandum.

The Honourable Ernest Lapointe, K.C., M.P.,
Minister of Marine and Fisheries
in and for the Dominion of Canada,
Ottawa, Canada. p
Sir,—The Committee appointed pursuant to the provisions of the Public
Enquiries Act on recommendation of the House of Commons realizing that the
matter of the British Columbia fisheries, which was submitted to them for investigation, is of great importance, and having in mind the fact that all interested in the
industry are entitled to the earliest possible notice of impending changes affecting
the industry, beg to submit, pending the final submission of a full report, the following recommendations in which they have unanimously concurred, except as hereinafter mentioned.
It is of course to be understood that the Commission are absolutely unanimous
in the following and recommend their adoption without any avoidable delay, nevertheless the Commission will at a future date submit for the approval of Parliament
a comprehensive report of their finding, together with the reasons therefor. -
1. Gas Boats in District No. 2.—Your Commission have fully considered this
matter, and recommend for adoption that on the opening of the fishing season of
1924 in District No. 2 the use of motor boats be permitted.
2. Japanese Licenses.—The Commission find that the number of white men and
Indians holding licenses is not in any way commensurate with the number of
Orientals, and as a consequence the Commission recommends that there be a reduction on all licenses issued to fishermen other than white fishermen and Indians of
40 per cent in 1923, this to include all methods of fishing, and that licenses issued
in District No. 2 to others than whites and Indians be attached to the oanners pro
rata.   Local residents and returned soldiers to be given preference in all districts.
3. License Fees.—The Commission are strongly of the opinion that the present
system of exacting license fees is of such a character as to eliminate progressive
citizens from engaging in the industry and also bears heavily upon an industry
which is already taxed to the limit.' The Commission feels that a person should not
be called upon to pay extravagant license fees without being assured of an adequate
return, and to that end it unanimously and energetically recommends the following:—
The fee for an abalone license shall be  $ 1 00
For  crab license shall be '.  1 00
Herring or pilchard drag-seine license  5 00
Herring or pilchard purse-seine license  .. ...... 5 00
Salmon drift   or   gill-net   license  1 00
Salmon drag-seine license  20 00
Salmon  purse-seine  license 20 00
Salmon trap-net   license      50- 00^
Sturgeon gill-net or drift-net license    "... 1 00
Annual fee for salmon cannery license, we recommend it shall be $20 for
said license and in addition 10 cents for each case of 48 1-pound cans, or the equivalent thereto, of sockeye salmon, and 5 cents for each case of any other species of
salmon.
4. Drag and Purse Seines.—Your Committee submit and recommend for your
approval  that  drag  and purse-seines  should  not  be  permitted  to  be  operated  save 3,
1
I
where demonstrated to be the only pra^e pi-effective and reasonably economic method
of catching fish, and in cases where puV'se-seines and drag-seines are permitted,, the
boundary to be moved out to not less than _ mile from the' mouth of the creek or
stream, or further if in the discretion o£ the Chief Inspector it is deemed advisable.
The Commission most strenuously urges and recommends that in cases where drag
or purse seines are permitted, none other than white British subjects and Indians
(natives) be employed.   This recommendation to be most imperatively enforced.
5. Cowichan District.—Inside of a line drawn in Cowichan bay, from Separation
point to Cherry creek, that no fishing be allowed by net, except as provided for
Indians. Neither in all waters south of the line drawn from Graves point to Erskine
point, and to a point drawn from Separation point to Musgrave point, including the
waters of Sansan narrows and Bourgone and Maple bay, shall any fishing be allowed
in these waters by net or live bait.
6. Licenses for cod fishing for commercial purposes to be issued without fee.
7. Close Season for Salmon.—That all the words in clause 8, on page 10, of
the Eegulations as found in the last five lines of said paragraph, commencing at
the word " provided " in the said fifteenth line, be struck out.
8. WeeMy Close Time.—The Commission recommends that the close season for
salmon fishing be in all parts of British Columbia from 6 a.m. Saturday to 6 p.rm
on the following Monday of each week, provided, however, that this shall not apply
to salmon trolling as provided in subsection D of section 27 of the Eegulations.
9. Fines for Illegal Fishing.—In this connection the Commission feels that
penalties as provided for in the laws at present extant are unduly oppressive and
harsh in many instances, and they therefore recommend that the law be amended
so as to make confiscation or forfeiture for a violation of the laws a permissive rather
than an imperative act. The Commission have found that there is a great deal of
fishing done during the close season and in closed areas, and also the use of more
apparatus than that permitted by law, and we recommend that drastic action be taken
to prevent such abuses of the law.
10. Herring.—Your Commission are strongly of • the opinion and recommend
that no purse or drag seine be permitted to be operated for the catching of herring in
Nanaimo harbour and Departure bay. Your Commission after investigation realize
the possibilities for the development of the mild-cured herring industry, and would
strongly recommend that the Government encourage said industry by making experiments with steamers equipped as drifters, and make any other experiments which
may be necessary.
11. Halibut.—We strongly recommend that a close season on halibut be enforced
dating from about the 15th of November to the 15th of February in each year, and
that experiments be made to ascertain the movements of said fish, the banks where
said fish are to be found and as to the advisability of closing certain banks for
certain periods.
12. Embargo.—Your committee recommends that no action be taken on the
proposed embargo. -
13. Life-Saving Patrol.—We recommend that in order to. help fishermen in distress, that one or more boats be placed in readiness on the coast so that they may
proceed to the assistance of fishermen iai distress. The said boat or boats can also
be used in studying the habits of all classes of fish and prospecting with regard to
habits of said fish. - r
'    S3
/p
%
14. Practical Scientific 'Investigation/ •_£& strongly recommend that such a
Board  be  established  and which  shall  eon.   ,t of practical  scientists, who   shall  be
'""located one on the Pacific and one on the/   Oantic coast.
15. Hatcheries.—Your commission has ;one into this matter very thoroughly
and heard a great deal of evidence both frt^n employees of the said hatcheries and
men engaged in the fishing industry, both 3 fishermen and purchasers of fish, and
we are of the opinion that most of the hater/Try operations could be suspended except
that two hatcheries be kept in operation teft experiment with the new proposed system and that a certain amount of the moneys now spent in hatchery operations be
used for the clearing of streams, obstructions in rivers and improving the spawning
grounds for natural propagation. We also.Recommend that the bottom of the river
near Hellsgate Canyon be cleared of obstructions as the evidence goes to show that
that work was not properly completed. J
16. Dog Fish.—Your Commission strongly recommends that every available
means be used for the extermination of this pest, and with that end in view it submits that dog fish should be permitted to he taken with all sorts of contrivances
without  any restriction  of  any  sort  whatsoever.    Further,  the   Commission  recom-
, mends that a bounty should be placed upon the catching of these dog fish and encouragement should be offered by way of financial or other assistance to those engaging
in the extermination of this pest and the utilization if at all possible of the same.
17. Clams.—Your Commission recommends that there be a close season 'on
clams either for canning, the selling fresh or any other purpose, the said close
season to be fixed.as to the time deemed best for the protection of said fisheries.
18. General Observations.—Your Commission have had the privilege of a conference with the Fishery Board of the State of Washington and have discussed with
said board matters generally advantageous to our joint fisheries. The Fraser river
matter was thoroughly discussed in an extensive manner and in a spirit of International comity and good-will. The majority of your commissioners were able to
arrive at a tacit understanding with these commissioners, subject to the approval
of the proper authorities, and we have authorized the Chairman of the Commission
to set before the proper authorities the results of our deliberation, owing to the fact
that this is a short memorandum of our 'conclusions. However, to speak tersely
and comprehensively, the majority of your commissioners, consisting of Mr. Chairman Duff, M.P., Mr. H. C. Dickie, M.P., Mr. Alfred Stork, M.P., and Mr.
A. W. Neill, M.P., have agreed to recommend to the proper authorities that a close
season of five years for Sockeye salmon fishing on the Eraser river and its tributaries and all coast waters leading up to the same be instituted for a term of five
years, provided Americans do the same on Puget Sound, and that an International
Commission be appointed consisting of representatives of the state of Washington
and of the Dominion of Canada to govern the matter of regulations during the said
period and during the term thereafter, this to embrace the right to deal with all
kindred subjects. Commissioner W. G. McQuarrie and Commissioner L. H. Mar-
tell. M.P., dissented from the foregoing and reserved the right to submit alternative
proposals. _
.. Your Commission also had the benefit of a conference with Mr. C. E. Garfield,
representing the Alaska Fisheries Commission in re the Naas-arid Alaska salmon
fisheries and as a result of' said conference your Commission recommends that steps
be taken with a view to having this matter .dealt with between the parties interested.
