9 Have You a City Lot Vancouver's already large colony of men who deal In the earth was materially augmented hy the arrival of about sixty retailers and wholesalers In chunks of this mundune sphere. The party, which arrived in special oars, comprised some of the hundreds of delegates to the recent National Convention of Roal Estate Asents held at Winnipeg, who at the close of that convention came west to view the country and Incidentally pick up tine: In con nection with their business and comparative values in other cities. The majority of the party are delegates from San Francisco, Los Angeles. Sacramento, Portland and other Pacific coast points. Hut there is also a carload of delegates from Chicago, Milwaukee and other eastern American points.

Including several from New York, who are making a flying trip through the west over the C. P. K. ard returning by the American transcontinental lines. Considering that the majority of the visiting real estate agents only spent one day In the city, they male the inot of the time at their disposal.

Nearly all of the visitors stocked up on tour ist literature, giving statistics of the city. A large number of them visited the Progresti Club and the Hoard of Trade and kept the office staff of both these Institutions busy for severel hours answering all kinds of questions about the city, Its assessment, how the Single Tax worked, building statistics and similar matters. Many of the coast visitors were particularly Interested In harbor matters and the tonnage of the port, indicating that they realize what a formidable rival Vancouver will prove in the Panama canal trade. But on one subject the visitors were all unanimous, particularly the eastern visitors, and that was the excellent Impression which Vancouver made In the way of commercial activity and future commercial expansion. The majority of the party left this afternoon for points south and east.

6. President Wilson's action in sending former Governor John Lind to Mexico as a special emissary In the present situation was attacked in the senate today by Senator Clark, of Wyoming, who declared "something else must be done by the administration to guarantee adequate protection to Americans." Senator Clark presented a resolution for an Immediate Investigation by the senate foreign relations committee of the condition of American citizens and American proper'y in Mexico. "Tnis resolution is not introduced In a spirit of hosti'lty to the administration or of criticism of the foreign relations committee." declared the senator, "but conditions are growing steadily worse In Mexico. Now we learn that Governor Llnd has been sent there by President Wilson. Llnd Without Power.

"That does riot satisfy. Mr. Llnd does not go as th, official representative of the United States. He does not go as an ambassador, cloaked with authority to represent the United States. He cannot be appealed to by American citizens ror protection.

Some other steps are necessary to give Americans and American property the protection they need and Senator eppaxd presented a summary of the strength of the constitutionalist forces In Mexico. He declared the senate should have complete knowledge of the number of the constitutionalist leaders, the troops they could muster, the extent of the territory controlled and the of their equipment. Definite Information Wanted. Senator Sheppard's report showed that the constitutionalist leaders had followers numbering between 60,000 and 80,000, and that ihey were In possession of far more than hlf of Mexico. "We are unable to get exact and definite information." said Senator Clark, "about conditions In Mexico.

Evidence still continues, however, to show that American property is being destroyed every day, that American citizenship Is being dishonored there and even officers of the American gov ernment are being shot down. "It is no purpose of this resolution to place the responsibility for these out rage. It is to obtain Information. know there Is a disposition at times to regard such information as confiden tial. But in my Judgment that is not the proper course now because It Is no secret that other nations than our selves are Interested In the situation, Conditions are being talked of, not only in the senate, but elsewhere.

The conditions cannot long be borne with by the American republic. Something must be done, or something will be done. I do not Intend to ask for a vote on the resolution at this time, and unless someone desires to make a statement In regard to It, I shall ask that It go over." Prisoners Released. LAREDO, Texas, Aug. 6.

Otto R. Winters and Dario S. Sanchez. two Americans held prisoners at Nuevo Laredo, were released today. Blown i In the Corn.

Fol low us for bargain STEVESTON', Aug. 6. With tfie price of fish cut to 15 cents It being freely predicted that a. further reduction to 12 cents will be made, the Japanese fishermen, controlling the fishing Industry and who inaugurated the strike on the Fraser river after being out about thirty six hours, again returned to work, and in consequence the fishermen's strike of 1913, the banner year of the Sockeye run. Is at an end.

One report comes from Steveston this morning that 40,000 salmon have been offered to anyone that will take them at 5 cents. Ten cents is the price being paid for fish In other quarters, and then only a limited iiurnuei are taken. The report that the Japanese fishermen on the upper river above the Fraser bridge went on strike last night Is without foundation, there are only a small number employed there, and they were out in their boats last night. The women workers in the canneries failed to get their Increase of five cents per hour, in fact, all that was gained in the strike was that some of the f.shermen that compromised with the Independent canneries have received a set price of 15 cents. As stated yesterday their loss by missing the first nights' run was fully 1200,000.

While the Japanese ieauers were In Vancouver in conference with the can ners, and while the whites, Indians and some of the Japanese were awaiting their return, about 80 of the latter put out In their boats. The sight of the great catches of fish as they returned was too much for the strikers, and a general rush for boats was made. Soon the streets of Steveston were deserted and the gulf and river again presented a busy scene, the lights of the fishing crafts being everywhere In evidence. While In some cases fish were thrown overboard, the threat that the men would also follow was never carried out. Drunkenness was very rare, the Japanese appearing to have Indulged more freely than the white men.

One man was all that represented the entire Japanese fishermen and for hours the white men and the Indians endeavored to find out what he bad to impart. It Is certain that when the first crowd of Japanese went back to work that tome understanding with the others had been made for there was not the slightest Interference. The big run Is still on and some unusually large catches are being; made. When those of the British lords and their ladiea who came west to BritUh Columbia return home they will remember the welcome and farewells tendered them in Vancouver If they remember anything at all about their trip across a continent and two oceans to Australia. This nornlng when the Princess Charlotte pulled out for Victoria, laden with parliamentarians, several prominent city folks were on the pier to bid a farewell to their guests of but a day.

There were cheers, exclamations of good will and Invitations to come again. The wharf was crowded, too, with Knights Templar, who bade farewell to those of their brethren who took the Charlotte on their way to Seattle. Mr. J. J.

Miller, prominent In the or ganliatlon, led a brigade of knights who cheered their visitors heartily. PARK ROADS CLOSED WHILE BEING OILED Arrangements having been completed some days ago for the oiling of the Stanley Park roads, the commissioners decided to close the park for a few oays to all vehicular traffic while the work was done. The park commission, ers were extremely sorry that this work had to be done Just at a time when prominent visitors were In the city and wished to see the park. However, a statement was made this morning by Superintendent Ttawllngs that the board Intends opening the park to motor cars again tomorrow morning, the work of oiling the roads having been completed.

(Associated World's Leased Wire.) WASHINGTON'. Aug. 6.

Merely Opposed Labor.

Attorney McCarter announced he Intended to show that the National Association of Manufacturers had only been opposing the work of the American Federation of Labor, "taking the opposite view" on most subjects of legislation. "We are going to investigate the American Federation of Le jr, Senator Reed observed that his Idea of the duty of the committee was to establish the truth or falsity of the letters. Emery testified he had been national counsel for the manufacturers since 1907, and for the National Council for Industrial Defense since 1S09. The council, he explained, was the natural outgrowth of the desire of employers of labor to form some national organization that might be able to do for them what the united labor organizations wished to do for labor. Broadly speaking, he said, the main Idea was to fight for the "open shop" Instead of the unionized shop, for which labor contended.

Emery testified that In August, 1907 at the suggestion of James W. Van Cleave, then president of the Manufac turers' Association, representatives of fourteen employing associations met In New York and laid plans that resulted In the formation of the Council for In dustrlal Defense. Mulhall swore there were no meetings, that Van Cleave and other officials Just formed the council, a paper organization, and elected themselves officers. Satisfactory Injunction Plank. James A.

Emery, counsel for the manufacturers' committee, took the stand before the House committee later In the day and continued identlfl cation of letters supplied from the files of the association. The labor planks and general makeup of both the Republican and Demo cratic parties in the 1908 campaign re celvert considerable attention from the asosclation, the letters showed. Several of the letters showed the activities of Marshall Cushlng In organizing sentiment for a "conservative" platform at Denver and a "satisfactory" injunction plank at Chicago. (Contlnued.) Cable communication between here and Coro was re established yesterday. A report reached here that the Vene zuiean government was commandeering horses and mules at Maracalbo.
