Colonel Jasenki huid: "I served

The lliisie. -
t:st convention here. Dr. Shipley
a fellow of the Royal society, a Cam
bridge M. A. and the holder of the
degree of the honorary doctor of sci
ence from Princeton.
"Species,"' he declared, "are disap
pearing from the globe at a greater
rate than even the most ardent muta
ticnlst claims they are disappearing.
To mention the most striking eases:
The Kuropean beaver lias almost
gone, though a few linger around the
periphery of the continent Norway,
the lower Danube, eastern and Arctic
Russia still harbor them, and a very
few lire said still to inhabit the Rhine
.-lid the Rhone. The Kuropi an bison
is now represented by a few wild
specimen. The American bison is re
duced, and that by the deliberate and
calculated action of man to a fe'.v
herds carefully preserved by the gov
ernment. Equally deliberate and
equally calculated Is ttm destruction
of the fur seal, which threatens eonn
to be complete. The (ireenland seal
ing is almost a thins of the past."
Dr. Shipley said that big game was
rapidly disappearing from Africa.
Many districts of Australia, he asscit
cii, have been almost entirely cleared
i f their native animal during a per
iod of only thirty years.
Although 3'it.tMiO different species
have been described and catalogued,
Dr. Shipley says that the museums of
the world are unable to cone with
the material at hand, new .specimens
being brought to them faster than
they can be ilasjsified. He uri;ed that
men of scientific training or at least
scientific sympathies be given places
in the government.
