of Establishing an express paasenger

Opinions Of Fishermen
The following is a composite inter
view, obtained from a number of fish
ermen, who agreed on the essentials.
"If thre were another fish market
operating in competition to the present
mnrket, which is controlled by the
tlireo fishing companiee, and all were
entitled to the use of the bait grounds,
the present price of fish would remain
iincliiinired and the situation would be
little relieved, if any. But if there
were another market, the nehu 'grounds
open to all and the large deep-sea fish

companies compelled by law to. unload
their cntch and place it on the markat

hours after arrival in port, the public
