Description A Brief Sketch of the Action of the Representatives by Unknown Author

Excerpt from A Brief Sketch of the Action of the Representatives: Of the American Atlantic Fisheries Interests, Defining Their Position and the Needs of Their Business The Duty of the Hour, on the part of the fishing owners, is to wake up to the danger which hovers about the fishing industry at the national capital. It is intimated that the Reciprocity Treaty will come up at an early day of the session, and it is imperatively necessary that competent persons, who fully understand the fisheries in every detail, should at once proceed to Washington, and be ready at all times to aid the Representatives in every possible manner to head off any attempt of the English Government and their paid agents to foist a Reciprocity Treaty upon this country, which will ensure our markets to free fish. This is no time for procrastination or unnecessary talk. The other side are up and doing. They mean business and are determined to carry their point at whatever cost. The very life of our fisheries and the future well being of this city depends upon the efforts which are now made to defeat any measure having for its purpose free fish.Let this opportunity go by and your fishing business cannot be prosecuted with any prospect of success. Your wharf and vessel property will depreciate and the business will be so hampered as to preclude its being carried on with any prospect of profitable returns. A petition of the fishing owners to George Steele, President of the Gloucester Mutual Fishing Insurance Co., asking him to call a meeting to take into consideration questions relative to the renewal of the Reciprocity Treaty between the United States and the Dominion of Canada, and to take such action thereon as may be deemed necessary, was fully responded to. The meeting took place at the rooms of the Fishing Insurance Co., Friday morning, Dec. 5th, at 9.30 o'
clock. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
