County Game Commission
ers Believe in Keeping
Present Game Laws
The entire force of the Stevens
County Game commission, compris
ing J. C. Wilson of Kettle Falls,
Atty. H. T. Wentz of Colville and
A. C. Johnson of Chewelah, commis
sioners, and L. S. Harbison, game
warden, attended the state meeting
of game commissioners and wardens
at Bellingham last week.
The prominence of Stevens county
as a game center is recognized
throughout the state, and the county
game commission has a record of
performance equaled by few coun
ties in the west. This county's rep
resentation was heard on a number
of proposals which came before the
meeting:, one of them being the plan
to raise the hunting and fishing
license cost to $3.
The convention finally passed a
resolution that no important changes
be made in the state game laws.
Atty. H. T. Wentz was one of the
members of the committee on legis
lation, and the increased license plan
was killed in committee.
A deer tag law was recommended,
which would make it unlawful for
anyone to destroy evidence of sex of
deer, or to be found hunting deer
without his official tag.
It is recommended tliut tho st::te

stead of 10% of the county license
Stevens county is raising $10,000
to $12,000 v year on frame licences,
.selling dose to 8,000 a year, 2,500 of
them in Spokane. Last, year tV.-ve
was $12,000 worth of flsh planted
in the county, at ;i nininii'TVt valua
tion of $4 per 1,000. Thr hatchory
is running full capacity, turning out
3,000,000 a year in two hatchings.
It i.s the desire of the commission to
double thil capacity as soon as funds
arc available, an estimated cost
bein<r $5,000. The commission owns
the land and the water and would
need but another building. The coun
ty commission also intends to raise
more Chinese pheasants each year.
Property pays none of the coat of
the commission's work, the gamp
licences paying the entire cost, and
the commissioners serving without
