Where all our vanished children go, 
And e'en. perchance, may recognize 
Their old-remembered, astral eyes I 
('O Noel. Noel I comest thou 
From them to us with kiss and vow ?) 
A little while and we shall hear 
The Child's s.ft footfall drawing near, 

The Child who our dead children takes, 
In his safe keeping for our sakes. " 
And they whose children we loved most 
Will watch for him and think him lost, 
And yearn for his return with eyes 
That search the deeps of Paradise. "

E TO FIS HE R WIE.N ! 

On the 13thJune. 9zz, theGovernulent reduced the Export 
Tax on fish, viz.: Cod, Haddock, ilake, l,ing, Pollack and 
Halibut, dried or otherwise pro.vided. 
(In the iTth November,.19zz, the Government removed the 
export tax altogether from the above named fish, and the amount 
paid as export tax was to be paid the Exporters and they to 
repay the fishermen. 
This was found impossible because the Exporters could not 
be sure of whose fish was exported and whose was not, so on 
the 2znd January, 923, the Government decided to pay iocents 
per quintal to all fishermen who actually caught any ot the above 
named fish provided he produced a receipt or certificate where 
it could be proven that the fish was sold between the 3th day 
of June, 9zz, and the 17th day of November, 9zz, both days 
inclusive, and thereby was entitled to the io cents per quintal 
that the Government have decided to give. 
The following Committee :-- 
H. V. HU'I'CHINGS. Esq.. 
Asst. l)eputy M;nister o[ Customs: 
W. H. CAVE, Esq.. 
Minister of Shipping; 
It(N. W. W. HAIFYARIL 
Minister of Posts and Telegraphs; 
lION. EI,I DAWE, 
A. W. PICC()T'I', Esq., 
RBERT PIKE. Esq., 
under the direction of It. W. LeMessurier, Esq., l)eputy 
Minister of Customs. has been appointed to go into the pay- 
ment ot this re[end. As this work represents the payment of 
o cents per quintal on somewhere near one million quintals of 
fish to about twenty or twenty five thousand fishermen, it must 
be understood that the payment of such a sum to such a 
number will take time. Thereiore for the guidance of the 
fishermen, and to facilitate the work and quick payment, the 
following is requested of those who are entitled to receive 
payment : 

st.--Have you sold an), fish, e,ther for cash, barter or credit 
of your account to anyone beheen the 3th day of June, 
9zz, and the 17thdayof November. Ozz, both days 
inclusive ? 

2nd.If you have the original receipt from the person to whom 
you sold fish, with the purchaser's address, forward it to 
tile Secretary. 

3rd.--lf you have no receipt, get a sworn statement from the 
person to whom you sold the fish. stating the date of 
sale and quantity sold, with the name and the address 
of the purchasers. 

4th.--A share,nan applying for repayment must get an account 
of the total catch as landed and sold and m each case a 
record o[ the vessel, and the name and addre-s of each 
man composing the crew, so that he may get the pay- 
ment direct for himself. 

(wing to the large number of fishermen revolved, the first 
payment will not be made until March loth and it will be for 
receipts received up to February 25th. 
Second payment ill be male April ruth and will be for 
receipts received tip to March 25th. 
Third pa}ment will be made June ioth and will be for 
receipts received up to April 25th. 
Fourth payment will be made June oth, and will be for 
receipts received up to May 25th. 

Fifth payment will

Sixth pa}ment will 

be made July ioth, and will be for

be made August ioth, and will be lot 

receipts received up to July 25th. 
Last payment will be made September loth, alter which date 
the accounts will be closed and no further applicants will be 
considered. 
Positively no payments will be made other than on dates 
named, and it is useless for anyone to bring receipts to the 
office and expect payment.
