BT. JOHN'S, N. P.. April lO.-On March

hair seal off tha Grand Banks of New
foundland. Thla Is an Industry wlilch

whose home la the rock ribbed coast of
Newfoundland. This seal hunt has been
prosecuted for hundred of years. It yields
a harvest of from $6oo,n(io to rTuO.roo annu
ally, and like the cod fish In the same
waters, the seal has defied all attempts at
extermination. This Is all the more re
markable when we find that today the
famous Bering- seal 'Ishery Is now r-duccd
to a mere skeleton of Its former Import
ance. A Newfoundlander takes no small pride
In this sllng- venture, and his views with
regard to It are Illustrated by the story
tf tha scaling skipper, who hearing once
of the appointment of a prominent lawyer
to the judicial bench declared that "It
was an outrage to give such a fine Job to a
man who had never brought a trip of seals
Into the country." The seal folk for some
reason describe their prey as "swolls," and
In the same fashion, to "spell" an object
meant to carry It; hence we can Imagine
the amasement of the young cleric, who
on one occasion asked a burly hunter how
he spelt "swolls," and was answered: "We
ion't apel! 'em, we hauls 'em."
Little Known of Heals.
Of the natural history of the hair seal, or
"Ice-riding pinniped," as scientists describe
It, little Is known. All that Is certain re
specting their habits and movements Is that
they appear on the coast of Labrador In
the early winter and drift south on the Ice
floes, where heir young are whelped on the
naked crystal plains. They are born about
the end of February and are suckled there
by their mothers, the father keeping guard
dally while she dives into the sea In
search' of food. The herds are absolutely
countless In number. On occasions as many
as 200.000 have been seen In a single
"patch." and yet each mother will return
at nightfall to her own Infant and find
the particular hole In the Ice by which
she went down, even though the floe
has shifted many miles snd changed its
position entirely. Toung seals are termad
"white coats," being fat, downy, pallid
little masses vt blubber, with voracious
appetltlea growing with such amazing
repldlty that within a fortnight their pelt
with fat attached weight from forty to
fifty pounds. It Is at this time the ecu;
A century ago it was prosecuted in
small boats by means of nets set along
the coast, then larger smacks were em
ployed and went further afield among the
floes. . Later stout schooners were built,
and then square rigged vessels and fifty
years ago a fleet of too sails put out from
the various porta of Newfoundland In quest
of the greasy spoil. In 1R31 as many as
374,000 aeals were brought in, while In
1864 the smallest catch on record was
All Steam Sealer. Now.
The modern era In the seal fishery began
In 1WSJ, when a wooden steamer, the Blood
hound, was built. Jn Bcotland and brought
across for the express purpose of engaging
In this pursuit. The introduction of steam
marked the downfall Of the sail, and today
there Is not a sailing vessel remaining at
the work. The whole enterprise has been
monopolised by a small steam fleet railing
from St. John's, and only 4,000 men are
taken on board these.
Until three years ago It was thought that
a steel ship was unsuitable for this work.
It Is a seeming paradox that Iron should
be less strong than wood for Ice naviga
tion. However, an enterprising and far
seeing St. John's ship owner resolved upon
the construction of a specially designed
steel steamer for the sealing business and
which should also be available as a cargo
carrier during the rest of the year. This
was the chief drawback of the old style
sealer, which was a twin sister of the
Arctic whaler and Indeed sometimes used
for that business. When the Dundee whal
ing business proved a failure the ships
were bought In for the Newfoundland seal
fishery, but for ten months of the year
she looks forward to the hour with apprehension. Mother's Friend,

of conducting the sesl hunt is that the

the feeling for Sabbath day observance
In the colony that seal killing is forbidden
then. A few years ago a sealing skipper's
log of an unusually interesting voyage

when this naive confession was exposed:

being killed every day and left on pans
until the ship can reach them there Is an
Irresistible temptation to appropriate these
under cover of night, and In Newfoundland
there are two currrnt phrases to which
the peculiarity has given rise.
Men, Ye Swore .Noble."
The "sealing liar" Is the gossip who gets
busy shortly after the fleet sails with
stories of steamers being reported, and
the "sealing sweerer." supplies glib but
unconvincing testimony In the cross suits
which follow every season's fishery. Some
years ago a victorious skipper, in one of
these actions, apostrophized his gallant
snip's company thus: "I thank ye, 'men;
ye swore noble!"
It Is scarcely an exaggeration to say
that very little reliance is given by New
foundland Juries to the testimony adduced
In sealing cases,' and In one of the most
recent fictions, wherein . some thousands
of seals were sued for, the verdict was
for two pelts, valued at S3, aa they alone
could be positively and indisputably In
dentlfied. The Industry Is one where men walk
In dally and hourly danger of death.
Within the last two years five ships were
lost, the Leopard was driven ashore and
130 men narrowly escaped death; the
Greenland broke Its shaft and was carried
seaward, its crew being rescued In the
last extremity; the Orand Lake was
crushed and went down. Its crew being
thirty-six hours on the floe before rescue
came; the Panther and the Walrus had
a similar experience. Every ship that
returned last year was more or less seri
ously wrecked, some of them so badly
that they could scarcely limp Into port.
The loss of so many of the old style boats
enables the owners to replace them with
ships of the modern type, and this year
ees four of them In commission t ho
Bonaventure, the Bellaventure, the Boe
thlc and the Florixel. The first three are
designed to serve as ordinary freighters
during the year. The Florlzel Is a still
more ambitious departure; it Is a ship
of 2.000 tons, with passenger accommoda
tions for 100 saloon and as many steerage
passengers, and Intended to he run as a.
tourist craft between St. John's, Halifax,
and New York, when not employed In the
seal fishery. It Is fitted with wireless
telegraphy, and for the first time on re
cord the Newfoundlanders hope to he

of the sealing fleet.

the resulting poverty, bringing thousands
how many it Is Impossible to compute to

evil, even a more immediate danger, In
this country than Is probably realised
either here or abroad by the general pub
lic. Early last autumn It Is not too much
to say that the British government looked
forward to the coming winter In a spirit
almost of panic.
t'nemployment and distress were reported
on such a scale frmo all parts of the king
dom even then that alarm, and very se
rious alarm, was felt as to what might be
the result when the real pinch of winter
should come. As It happened the most
serious part of the year went by without
anvlhlne: more alarming coming to pass
thnn previous years have witnessed. But
the widespread unemployment, poverty and
distress remain, and with them the ques
tion of what they are to lead to.
So far the alarm they have Inspired In
a weak kneed government has led to s cer
tain amount of panic legislation which,
while leaving the root of the evil un
touched, hns served as a sop to the leaders
and organisations, which vaguely threat
ened trouble. The ill considered and worse
applied old age pension act and other leg
islation affecting the legal status of trades
unions and the relations of employers and
employed, which have been too fully de
scribed to need more than a bare mention
now, have been the work of a panic
stricken government too anxious to pacify
the mob they fear to consider the welfare
of the masses, who, beyond question, are
In need of assistance based on prorer
Pearfnl Poverty Known of All.
Nowhere more than In London Is this
need so evident. In no city Is squalid,
starving and ragged poverty so forcibly
thrust upon the attention even of the cas
In the warm weather the turf of every
public park Is thickly strewn throughout
the day with the sleeping forms of the un
employed, among them, no doubt, a cer
tain proportion of deserving poor and un
fortunate people. When th days arc cold
there does not seem to be a street In Ixin
don that has not at every yard a ragged
and hungry looking beggar to open the
door of a cab, and beg, articulately or
mutely, according to the distance of the
nearest policeman, for a copper.
Thousands of these are wastrels, unem
ployed becaune they are unemployable.
Excluding them and the ever Increasing
number of youths who have learned to do
no sort, of work, and the pitiful army of
broken women, 5,000 of whom made a
rathetle spectacle sliuffling through the
streets of the West End on the day of the
opening of Parliament, there must, It Is
calculated, be at least 25.000 unemployed
men In London who have the will and the
ability to be hard working citizens, but are
yet near enough to starvation, thousands
of them, to take advantage of the several
schemes, public and private, who provide
them with their Uttle food once In the
twenty-four hours. That may seem a
strange, perhaps an ungracious way In
which to refer to charity offered and In
many, cases accepted In a proper spirit, but
It connotes a truth which will be apparent
from what Is to follow.
Effort nt Itellef n Fallore.
Municipal attempts at providing relief
work have, generally speaking, been a
failure In Ixjndon. Labor colonies have
p-oved a costly failure. Street cleaning
and other sanitary work, with very oc
casional snow cleaning, seem to have pro
vided more work for communities than
A recent article In The Bee on the poor
law as It now exists shows that it pro
vided no remedy. The food nnd shelter of
the workhouse, to which every destitute
man has a right, only prevent the recipient.
If he Is a bona fide worker, from looking
for employment, while for the loafer they
provide the attractions of a free hotel
which he enters and quits at his own sweet
But there are attempts made to provide
the hungry man with one meal a day In
order to give him some measure of physi
cal strength to prosecute his search for
employment. Day after day and night
after night the Church Army feeds thou
sands of these derelicts. The Thames
Embankment near Charing Cross Is the
assembling place. Here are some impres
sions gathered personally for the purpose
of this letter not many nights ago.
What is true of one night is true of every
other; the people and the weather change,
but the pirture Is otherwise always the
same. It was an hour before midnight, a
cold winter night with the snow lying on
the street and a bitter east wind blowing
that had driven Into shelter all that had a
shelter to seek. But already a long shiv
ering queue of men and youths are wait
ing, and every moment adds to their num
ber. Starving;, bat Orderly.
Policemen are there In charge, but their
services are never wanted. The hungry
crowd waits In silent, orderly misery, and
no late comer tries to filch the place of one
who has arrived before him. Take them
all round, these men do not give the lm
prtssion of being useless wastrels, neither
drunkards nor criminals.
The marks of pain, hunger and sickness
are stumped on n.arly all. A talk with
some of them may be taken as giving the
measure of the rest. Their talk is free
from pose or hypocrisy, for their lnter

The first man spoken to still showed
considerable traces of better days. This,
In thort, was his story:
"I am 48 years old and since my seven
teenth year I worked as a boiler riveter.
My wages rose to an average of 50 shil
lings a week; with a family of six I put
little by for a rainy day.
"Ten munlhs ago I was dismissed, with
many more, from the firm with which I
had been working for eleven years the
reason was simply slackness of trade. For
tight months we kept the home together,
then It went.
"You can guess the rest. The parish
guardians are looking after the children,
my wife Is In the workhouse Infirmary,
and 'full up' or trade's scarce' Is the an
swer when one asks for any kind of woik.
I walked about looking for work two das
and two nights without any food or shel
ter before I could buck up any courage to
fall into these ranks, but I'm glad I've
done It: It has helped to keep body and
soul together, and I'll manage to regain
my feet somehow this summer."

Here, no doubt, one saw one of the re
sults of the employers' liability act. When
dismissals are necessitated by slackness of

four years ago he was In possession of
an Inherited Income of 2.500 a year. Find
ing it sufficient, he got into debt, tried
to recoup himself by speculating on the
Slock exchange and now found himself
destitute and helpless.
At midnight an officer rf the Church
army arrived and gave every man a slip
of paper which was good for a bowl of
soup, with the proviso that he should do
a certain amount of work. A quarter of an
hour's walk brought the whole contigent
to the Church army tents. As this lot ar
rived about 100 men were departing.
Throughout the twenty-four hours the
tents are filled with shifts of men, each
shift remaining three hours. On enter
ing each man receives a pint and a half
of thick Joup and a thick slice of bread.
After eating this, they are put to sawing
and chopping and tying up the small
bundles of kindling wood that are uni
versally used In Ixindon.
At the end of the three hours each man
again receives the same quantity of food
he had on entering, and on going out gets
a ticket entitling him to a bed for that

In the number of unemployed whose lot
was followed on this particular night were
several Americans. They were men who

with little or no money to go on with on

and found themselves entirely without re

of soup, a slice of bread and an hours
rest In a warm well-lighted room.
No applicant Is refused, and as in tho
case of the Church Army no questions are
asked. It Is assumed that no man will
stay out In the open till midnight in bitter

he be tn desperate need. On some nights
over 1.000 men are fed at the hall visited

Church Army tents were visited.

In the bright electric lighted hall of the

the crowd was more plainly to be seen.
It was easy to pick out a great number

many, shown by the wolfish wsy they
seized upon their food. Second, the utter

Before touching upon the other London

are two or three other charities which

of soup kitchens the prganlxers of which
sell books of tickets at the rate of three

turn distribute them among the poor.

medicine again, I shall certainly take it. In the
spring I had pimples and boils all over my back,
with poor appetite, and general nin down

for my blood bad done me no good, then I turned
to Hood's Sarsaparilla, which did the business
just right. It gave me a good appetite, and drove
all the impurities out of my blood. Every oppor
