Thoro was a discussion regard
ing a strike of stall-keepers at the
Fishmnrkot against bidding fort,

President Smith contradicted t,
publishod statoment that the
strike was occasioned by the con
fiscation of fish ..ftor being kopt t

until it was tainted, and what wot
of good quality could be salted.
Ho submitted to tho meeting the
question of whother tho salo oC
salt or dried fish should be res
tricted to the market.
Dr. Emerson hud considered
the quostiou a good deal, and
could see no reasin for such a res
triction. Dr. Day asked if tho fish thai
was salted was bo done under
suporvision. It was answered
that so far all such fish was silted
nt tho raarkot under tho supervi
sion of Mr. Koliipio, but if it wu
to bo allowed to bo sold elsewhere
such suporvision could not bo ex
ercised. Mr. Wnterhouso said some im

Dr. wood concurrea in tuo op
inion that sioknoss was ofton pro-

President Smith referred to aa
order of tho Minister of tho Inte
rior, just como into forco, to olor
vogetablo vendors off tho side

matter of allowing fish peddling
about town, said tho pr-ictico wax
