Federal States fish consignments last week from the Bluff were a record. In all 1200 cases were despatched in lots about equally distributed as between Sydney and Melbourne. It is an open secret of the trade this represents within a fraction of £1200 inbrought cash. (says the "Bluff Press"). Stewart Island fish stations contributed la-st month between 2000 and 3000 cases, valued at 20/ per case. That of itself will ho recognised as a fairly good contribution to the circulating medium of the inland. Besides fishermen, there are fish-cleaners, etc., to be reckoned with. The latter is in a measure a household pursuit, in which the women and children take a hand. In that way the distributed capital appeals to a class or classes that might otherwise be reck- | oned non-productive. The small capitalist, many of them not more than two or two and a half feet high, is quite a common occurrence. As for the "quid wife," she considers herself good
enough for the napery supplies of the establishment. In that way, capital and labour get along exceedingly well, and no one heeds the intervention of an Artration Court or Court of Conciliation. Of late the fish banks have been inundated with whale feed. The result is the fish have been biting badly. The prevailing gales are expected to drive the feed away* in which case biting will be more eager than it has been.
