the net "running expenses" of this
concern are 411,761.20. Inasmuch as
thin firm owus uo sampans, ant no
equipment for fishing; has no other
overhead expenses than those already
onunierated, it is difficult, for those
who instituted this prone into the uf
fairs Of the Pacific Flnh Company, to
understand just what these ' ' running ex
pensi-a" really are.
Fish prices dropped materially yes
terday owisg to the investigations that
have been carried on recently and the
abolishment of tha private auctioneer
ing game which haa been carried on
there for months. Eben Low is given
credit for bringing about the drnstic
changes at the fishmarket when he
took charge of the auction block.

stallmen and the Pacific Fishing Com
pany and an immediate slashing - of
prices was started yesterday morning
by those who were opposed to this
innovation. Fish was Sold for almost
a song with the. Idea of driving the
bona fide fishermen out of business, la
so ins instances fish were sold at prices
which would be ruinous to anyone who
kept It up for long. This slash
ing of prices as kept up until the
Pacific Fishing Company people din
covered that the fishermen themselves
were blivihg at those bedrock prices
nnd holding the finh to be sold luter
in the day. Upon thin dinnvery,
prices went back to normal again.
