I ! ; I I I ; i I I FORTUNE IN SHARKS Extended Use Feu "id for "Tigers of the Sea." New Industry on the Pacific Coast Promises Big Profits for Its F-cmcters. Victoria.—With the supply of raw material unlimited, an industry new to this country is nourishing at Parker island, between Calinno and Mayne island, on tlie Gulf of Georgia. It is tile business of catciiing sharks, and a week's catch at the beginning of May ran to SO, with an average weight of more than a ton each. Nelson Mac Donald of this city, who operated the first shark-catching machinery on the island, declares there will never be a shortage, as there are millions in the waters surrounding the island. "In fact, the farther nortli you go the more sharks you will find, and from here to Alaska are their feed ing grounds," Mr. MacDonald said. "Taking them from the bottom of the sea is automatic. Norway has hundreds of such industries. The only ! real hook for catching them, which ! I works on a swivel, comes from there, ! and the so-called cod liver oil, which invades the markets of the world, is , ; really shark liver oil, manufactured in Norway." Nothing is wasted in a shark plant. ! There is no finer fish meat than that | made from the bodies of sharks. As a fertilizer it is superior to dogfish. The head of the shark is full of glue of a highly valuable quality, and tlie fins are a much prized Chinese food delicacy, orientals here paying as much as $30 .1 pound for it. The liver content runs from fit) to 70 lier cent (if finest «.il. of which about 10 per cent is glycerin^. Shark's teeth are in demand in many parts of tiie world, and fetch a high price I for the manufacture of ornaments. I What hones there are, and they are I few. go into the fertilizer part of the ; industry. i The greatest interest in Hits new I industry is being manifested in the I manufacture of hides. Several Ameri can companies have been formed, and much research work is being done at present. The shark hides run from an inch in thickness to the consist ency of pnper in tlie baby shark. In Seattle they are manufacturing hip boots from shark hides and they are declared to he completely wntenirçoj.

Premier Lloyd George made public a letter to De Valera, inviting him to a conference in Lgndon with Sir James Craig, premier of the new Ulster par liament. as tiie first step towards defi nite settlement of the Irish question.
