3019. FISHERIES, Relief of.—

What relief
does the condition of the whale fishery
require? 1. A remission of duties on the articles
used for their calling. 2. A retaliating
duty on foreign oils, coming to seek a competition
with them in or from our ports. 3.
Free markets abroad. * * * The only
nation whose oil is brought hither for competition
with our own, makes ours pay a duty of
about eighty-two dollars the ton, in their ports.
Theirs is brought here, too, to be reshipped
fraudulently, under our flag, and ought not
to be covered by ours, if we mean to preserve
our own admission into them.—
Report on the Fisheries. Washington ed. vii, 551.
