J 1) U Nk XLbe JLvibime Saturday. November 8. 191* r THE LABOUR QUESTION There has been a good deal of law breaking lately by rnarineraengaged in sponging. The Nassau Prison has a number of men in ward who have signed on for two and even Hires ves seisin hope <>f raising enough out of the advances thus gained to pay their way to Florida. During the hurricane months owners of Andros bland and other islands that engage active ,v m this industry advance money to eamen to keep them going till the middle ofi > tober, and then have to face the pi pact of losing both the advance and the man. Thissorl of I is bad for owners, agents and the trade generally. While talking tins over with a gentleman a few days ago, he dropped a suggestion which we '" pass on. He said that in one other country at least men sailing on foreign voyages were signed on before ;i government Commissioner, and remarked that if tin-, were done here it would stop this practice of one "i 'ii signing on, for more ve than one, because if the govern I meat [official looked after that work, it would be seldom that els would be daring enough to try to sign on m his presence lor more than one v< is* 1 at a time. As we cannot profess to sidled in the mysteries of sponge-fishing and sponge i u k ting, we are nol in a position to pass judgment on the al i suggestion, but it seems plausi ble, In order to protect the in (crests of owners, captains, I r >k '•is. agents and seamen who arc h *t, could, this idea be carried out by telling ofl an offi< ial jit say TinCustom House |,, wgnon' our mariners when the\ go sponging or turtling. Men who are engaged in this ii i le in one wayoi another may see fatal objections to this plan. We merely speak of it in case there should happen to be in it the germ of an idea that would 1 this part I f the labour problem.

Again, these figures apply only to Miami, a large number also goes to New Y01 k and these total a considerable figure. To sum up, it amounts to this that 2135 who were in Miami have come here and made a short stay and have returned to Miami for a longer stay, carrying 501 more with them, thus the Colony is short of labour 2636.

Except for the fact that, I would rather be I, than anyone else, I think I would change with "Sufferer" on three shillings a day, though I daresay he gets four shillings.

Iking "a lone man", you can go as you please —you haven't all Clerk's responsibilities and expenses. Clerk works from 7 to 7, 2 hours off for meals, Grits and fish, bread, a little butter, tea and sugar. If you were sick, you could go to the Bahamas General Hospital free of charge, Clerk would have to pay. 1 suppose if Clerk were compelled to handle the machete and the wood-axe for a living, he could do it, tho' he wasn't brought up tu it. Biothcr Sufferer! you have allowed your angry passions to over ride your belter judgment, You mistake what Clerk said. As a poor man—do you call him rich—he is not desirous of keeping the poor man from prosperity. Oh no! he wants to see him better off, but the point is how to do it on a sound and substantial basis? Not simply the taking out of one pocket to put into another and leave one empty. Don't you understand that, if the Government raises the price that they pay for labour, it means that larger payments of money must be made from the Treasury, and that it can only be provided by an increased revenue, and surely your intelligence tells you what that means. You must surely have heard that increased taxation has already followed an increase of expenditure ; an increase of duties on all that you consume, and that Revenue and Expenditure are not even equal, that the amount paid out is more than goes in the public chest. If you have only three shillings a day to spend, how can you spend any more? If yon were one of those of whom William Marshall, NS.B. speaks, who lately earned more than four shillings a day, then it would be different. Why were you not one of those? Was there not enough work to go around ? You say that, "in the next two weeks there will not be a man left at Wemyss' Bight so much as to bury the dead." Then, why not go there, there's a splendid opening for you. You are "a lone man". Si e here! there have never been many men there. By the Census of 1911, there were but 110 Male Agricultural Labourers in the District from the East End of Eleuthera to Wemyss' Bight, (inclusive) while there were 250. Femalftf, and the number of unmarried females was 322. What a chance for you. You want (Continued on fourth page.) £ 1

The Editor of The Tribune
S.r.
I inn not writing on the La-
bour Queition exactly, but 111
reply to the letter of "Sufferer"
which has grown out of it, and
in defense parti) of my friend
and co labourer. If you think it
off. and decline if, I shall n< t
sill!;, bul Bl "Clerk" has dropped
out for a while, I have thought
that you might allow me tndrop
in.
I agree with "Sufferer" iii his
appreciation of your Journal,
and am glad that lie ended Ins
tirade in a hurst of sunshine
which diffused itself over it, and
to which it is justly entitled. I
am hound lo say however, that
the style in which he has bestow
ed his censure, on mv friend, is
neither worthy of being fol-
lowed nor calculated to convert
us of the Clerk class. It is want-
ing in tact, it is violent, and
pointlws except in abuse. Abuse
is n<>t argument, though at
times it inav appear tn be use-
ful, as when a lawyer knows he
has a had ease and in order to
obtain a verdict, abuses the
Other side. "Sufferer" has done
this with I vengance, but I
doubt if any measure of success
has rewarded him. I trust how-
ever that he has burnt himself
out as Guy Fawkes did a few
nights ago, and that from his
ashes will arise a young and
beautiful being purged by the
fires of sufferinga thing of
beauty and a joy forever. I can
fully enter into Sufferer's feel-
ings, for we clerks are poor men

Clerk on *, wife three children, pays a cook,
has no house-servant, wife does
housework,paysa washerwoman
anil pays house rent, and for
otinr things. Doesn't drink grog,
or beer, but tises tobacco.

Oh! brothei Sufferer, see
what "Clerk"' has to do with
$50 a 1......th. Iking "a lone
man", you can go as you please
you haven't all Clerk's re-
sponsibilities and expenses.
Clerk works from 7 to 7, 2 hours
off for meals, Grits and fish,
bread, a little butter, tea and
sugar. If you were sick, you
could go to the Bahamas Gene-
ral Hospital free of charge,
Clerk would have to pay. 1
suppose if Clerk were compelled
to handle the machete and the
wood-axe for a living, he could
do it, tho' he wasn't brought up
tu it.
Biothcr Sufferer! you have
allowed your angry passions to
over ride your belter judgment,
You mistake what Clerk said.
As a poor mando you call him
richhe is not desirous of keep-
ing the poor man from prosper-
ity. Oh no! he wants to see
him better off, but the point is
how to do it on a sound and
substantial basis? Not simply
the taking out of one pocket to
put into another and leave one
empty. Don't you understand
that, if the Government raises
the price that they pay for la-
bour, it means that larger pay-
ments of money must be made
from the Treasury, and that it
can only be provided by an in-
creased revenue, and surely your
intelligence tells you what that
means. You must surely have
heard that increased taxation
has already followed an increase
of expenditure ; an increase of
duties on all that you consume,
and that Revenue and Expen-
diture are not even equal, that
the amount paid out is more
than goes in the public chest.
If you have only three shillings
a day to spend, how can you
spend any more? If yon were
one of those of whom William
Marshall, NS.B. speaks, who
lately earned more than four
shillings a day, then it would
be different. Why were you
not one of those? Was there
not enough work to go around ?
You say that, "in the next two
weeks there will not be a man
left at Wemyss' Bight so much
as to bury the dead." Then,
why not go there, there's a
splendid opening for you.
You are "a lone man". Si e
here! there have never been
many men there. By the Cen-
sus of 1911, there were but 110
Male Agricultural Labourers in
the District from the East End
of Eleuthera to Wemyss' Bight,
(inclusive) while there were 250.
Femalftf, and the number of un-
married females was 322. What
a chance for you. You want

THE LABOUR QUESTION
There has been a good deal
of law breaking lately by rnari-
neraengaged in sponging. The
Nassau Prison has a number of
men in ward who have signed
on for two and even Hires ves
seisin hope <>f raising enough
out of the advances thus gained
to pay their way to Florida.
During the hurricane months
owners of Andros bland and
other islands that engage active
,v m this industry advance
money to eamen to keep them
going till the middle ofi > tober,
and then have to face the pi
pact of losing both the advance
and the man. Thissorl of I
is bad for owners, agents and
the trade generally.
While talking tins over with a
gentleman a few days ago, he
dropped a suggestion which we
' '" pass on. He said that in
one other country at least men
sailing on foreign voyages were
signed on before ;i government
Commissioner, and remarked
that if tin-, were done here it
would stop this practice of one
"i 'ii signing on, for more ve
than one, because if the govern I
meat [official looked after that
work, it would be seldom that
els would be daring enough
to try to sign on m his presence
lor more than one v< is* 1 at a
time.
As we cannot profess to
sidled in the mysteries of
sponge-fishing and sponge i u
k ting, we are nol in a position
to pass judgment on the al i
suggestion, but it seems plausi
ble, In order to protect the in
(crests of owners, captains, I r >k
'is. agents and seamen who arc
h......*t, could, this idea be carri-
ed out by telling ofl an offi< ial
jit say - Tin- Custom House |,,
wgnon' our mariners when the\
go sponging or turtling.
Men who are engaged in this
ii i le in one wayoi another may
see fatal objections to this plan.
We merely speak of it in case
there should happen to be in it
the germ of an idea that would

THE EXODUS TO FLORIDA

mation and consideration of
readers the following return!

It will be seen that the b
ance to the colony's loss in
period is 501, and be it rem
d that for the last decade
the balance has been to the loss
of the C"lony.
Again, these figures apply
only to Miami, a large number
also goes to New Y01 k and these
total a considerable figure.
To sum up, it amounts to this
that 2135 who were in Miami
have come here and made a short
stay and have returned to Miami
for a longer stay, carrying 501
more with them, thus the Colo-
ny is short of labour 2636.
