Some belong 4a salt water and, gome,
ia frelh water. Ana $ne species of
dogfish ma1res the great lakes its,
The dogfish is the "swell dresser"
of the fish family, having a handsome
coat of hard glistening scales. But
fine scales dont-make fine fish the
temper of the dogfish is far from
sweet and he bites and acts Up so no
good fisherman has any respect for
him. When he's hooked', however,
he's a pretty good, sport and. puts up
a fine fight for liberty.
As food the dogfish is no more pop
ular than if .he were just plain dog
instead of dogfishhungry fishermen
who have tri,ed it say that a dogfish
fry has mu,ch the same flavor as
baked cotton batting or stewed saw
dust But the dogfish isn't altogether
a useless 'beastie" he has a very
good liver that Is, it's good for oil
and the oil industry is quite impor
tant wherever the dogfish abounds.
AN ARBITRATION LAW. The
car men struck two days and we all
agreed that we dkr not want the
strike, so we got together on arbitra
4 tjj6n. Thereby we narrowly escaped
great inconveniences, loss of money
and dangers; doubtlessly loss of life.
This same result would have been
had without the two days strike had
we had an arbitration law, compul
sory on demand of one party, either
employer or employe, and had we had
ability necessary for arbitration. The
strike did stbr up the public feelings,
the thoughts of the city council and
mayor so that It became more easy
to start arbitration. This would not
have been needed had the car men's
union been used to think and speak
in the line of arbitration.
Look at the great carpenters' strike
and lockout, where hundreds and
thousands were or were threatened
to become involved, and where great
siims of money and time were wasted,
'nota mention great suffering and
delay in finances bought and used
that hit some of the poor "working-
men's families during strikeojproat
bly never known publicly. All that
would be avomed stop to realize,
what that means had we had prop
er arbitration laws and reasoning
power enabling us to operate intelli
gently under the law.
Stop to realize what it would have
meant in the Colorado strike war, ter.
rible in, its results, had intelligent
arbitration been compulsory on the
demand, on the part of the employe.
So in other great strikes and lock
outs, like at the Colorado mines, if it
had takfo five years to gain a little
advantage It would have been better
than the war and ho gam, destruc
tion of communities. Jt is a step
backward in the march toward free
dom for the working class.
G, A. Walter's letter in The Day
Book is one that awakens serious
thought I would suggest that we
at The present concentrate on obtain
ing a proper arbitration law as sug
gested in my letter in The Day Book
of" July 8. This would allow, what in
sufficient blislness there is going on,
to continue interruptedly.
Does not the adjustment of prices
of living necessities as compared to
possession or means come under the
duties of the U. S. department of
commerce and labor?
If so I would suggest that The Day
Book take up a .short campaign to
rally the people to present the ques
tion before said department Also I
would suggest that The Day Book
take up a campaign for preparation
and enactment of an arbitration law
and election of an arbitration board,
as spoken of in this and my letter in
The Day Book of July,8.
The arbitration board should have
power tp recommend adjustment of
prices' of living necessities to proper
authorities. N. E. L,
