McCall Ferry Dam And LacK Of

[Baltimore Kveiiinir Sun.J
Now that the shad haa drifted into
the iniaty paat along with the dog
wood and other aymbola of spring, and
now that shad roe can be viewed dia
panaionately and witbout any poetic in

It waa not ao niany yeara ago, poeei
bly flve, that ahad fiahing below 1'hila
delphia waa common to ordinary, and
"Cap'n" Wilaon, who ran the big
Cilouceater fiahery, occupied niueh time
in cuaaing hia luck. Fiah Commisaioners
from Pennaylvania and New Jersey and
learned men from the Department of
Agriculture conaulted together and
And there were thoae who blamcd it
on the polluted watera of the Delaware;
othera who aaid there waa entirely too
much fiahing, and atitl othera who
averred that the demand was exceeding
the aupply and that more fiah ahould be
planted if big cropa were to be raiaed.
In the end the (iovernment ran a fish
hatrhing boat up the river, purchased
tine, fut, heavy roe ahad and began
hatching little ahad, which, in tum,
were dumped into the Delaware far to
ward the New York iine.
The procesa was continued for a
number of yeara; the shad increased;
lUhing was prohibited frotn sundown
Saturday night until aunrise Monduy
morning, and nuw the humbleand lowly
of Phildelphia, aa well aa the proud and
huughty, can eat shad of an April day.
Members of lishing crewa can tuck away

When it comea to clean water, grav
elly apawning beda and an ideal home
life for the ahad, the Suaquebannn and
aorne other streams tributary to the
('beaaiM-ake are many, many pegs higher
than the Delaware. Wherefore, it
ahouid be apparent that the lovely shad
lish abould thrive and multiply and wax
fat down this way. Instead of a poor
season, all springtimea ahouid show
plenty of ahad and the voice of the
huckster ahouid be heard in the land.
Fish experta agree that shad can be
raised as easily as early onions, and it
is a la w of nature that two years af ter
the tiny fellows are durnped into the
head watera they will return to the
same spot where they received their
baptism, there to perpetuate the species
and in full maturity. lndeed, on the
Pacific Coaat, where few years ago the
shad waa introduced. it was shown that
they reached manhood and maidenhood
in one year.
So thatit isposaible with the expendi
ture of a few thousand dollars annually
to provide the people with plenty of
nah and at moderate coat.
Fish Versus Bcef.
And lish experta will also tell you that
if the fiahing induatry was given proper
attention, if the inland watera were
stocked and if the sea fish were pro
tected the Beef Trust would be pretty
But aa for the ahad the people of
Maryland have not a great deal to say.
The chief supply comea from the Sua
quehanna river and up at McCall Ferry
there ia a power dam which checks the
ambition of the fiah. The ahad want to
go up the river to spawn. The dam
atopa them. They wait bclow the dam
until fiahermen come along and the neta
do the reat. In a flash the aource of
propagation ia cut off.
After aeveral aeaaons of tbia aort of
thing only a corporal'a guard are left
of the ahad and that'a the condilion
which extated thia year along the Sua
The State of Pennaylvaniu has tukeii
more interest in the growing and pro
tection of fish thau most States, but
for aome atrange reason the McCall
Ferry dam has been overlooked. lt is
true that fishwuya were inaiated upon
by the Fish Commiaaionera, but as con
atructeil it ia imposaible for ahad to get
above the dam. lt has been hinted
that honeat and practical tishwuys
would cost too nuich money and inter
fere with the power by allowing too
much water to eacape and that the
State authorilics have failed to see
anything wrongwith the useless device.
A Iso for some reaaon the people of the
Keystone State have not become in
terested in the shad question. They
know that in years gone by shad were
caught along the Susquehanna as far up
as Sunbury, and there were important
fiaheriea along the Juniata.
Few Protests Are Heard.
Uams have been erected along the
Juniata, no shad fry have been planted
along the Susquehanna head watera, the
McCall Ferry dam has been permitted
to block the progress of the fish juat
where the most damage can be done and
the people of the great Susquehanna
valley have not even made a proteat.
Obviously, it ia too late todo anything
this year, but if the people of Muryland
and the reaidents of the Pennaylvania
counties bordering on the Susquehanna
do some real stout expoatulating with
"Uncle Billy" Meehan, who is father
confessor to the nah across the Maaon
and Dixon's line, and if four or tive
million young shad are dumped in the
atream, and if the McCall Ferry dam is
converttd into an eaay fishway, there
will be "ahad-o" for all.
Why Sturgeon Grcw Scarce.
This whole fiah queation ia not only
intereating but important aa well. The
sturgeon waa once regarded aa a very
poor article of food and 50 yeara ago
was killed with the aea trout for the
air bladders. They made glue or some
thing elae out of the bladdera. Then
the buaineas of atripping out the eggn
for caviare became a real induatry.
The remainder of the sturgeon waa
heayed aaide. Now it ia come to be
realized that the fieah of the big fiah is
good eating and the whole carcaaa is
utilized. Alao at this time the aturgeon
State lawa are protecting the fiah, but
the native aturgeon ia not atrong on re

ditiona and the ntoat careful obaervunce

A few yeara ago the United Statea
sent over to the Balkan Statea an ob

whopping big aturgeon, a faat grower,
fine for food, excellent for caviare and
Knowlea, who, by the way, haa been
tranaferred to San Domingo, got the
Department of Agriculture interested
in thiu aturgeon with the object of
trunaporting a small colony and dump
ing them into the watera of the Chesa
peake and Delaware baya. That ia one
good work about which the fishermen of
Maryland and the fiah-conauming folk
ahould at intervala aak a few queations.
Maryland a Fish Center.
There ia no place on the Atlantic
coaat ao fitted foreatablishing a great
fiahing induatry aa Chesapeake bay.
Nearly every variety of fiah can be
found in ita watera and the moat of
them apawn in the creeka. Someof the
biggest catches of inackerel, aea trout,
baaa, blue-iiah and other varletiea have
been caught in the Cheaapeake down
near the Atlantic Ocean.
Contrary to a general impreaaion, the
aupply of aea and bay fiah ia not inex
haustible. The theory that there are
juat aa good fiah in the aea aa those
caught knocked the lobeter trade aky
high and booated the price so diatreaa
ingly that the coat of feeding a ahow
lady on broiled lobater ia becomea acan

One of the most interesting and timely
booksof the monthis "Through Europe
with Rooaevelt from the Jungle," by
John Callan O'Laughlin, Waahington
correspondent of the Chicago Tribune.
This book ia almoet Kiplingesque in it*
atrength, ardor and powerful doscrip
tiona. It presents vivid picturea of
matters which are already hiatoric; the
pagea are liberally illuatrated.
The book has been brought out by
the Chapple Publishing Company, Lim
ited. of Boaton, in handaome atyle, in
their vigoroua and energetic way. Al
though there were only a few daya in
which to print the book of nearly 200
pages, it was one of the "beat aellera"
which greeted the ex-President in New
York City on his return from Europe.
It was aelling on the streeta, in the sub
way, on the elevated and on the ferriea
of New York. It ia a book one wiahes
to put into one's pocket, read carefuily
and preserve in the library at home.
Mr. O'Laughlin has given a very
graphic, yet aimple and cornprehensive
account of Colonel Rooaevelt'a exit from
the jungle, his pasaage through Europe,
and hia return home. The picturea
illuatrate scenea in every country visited,
and the volume ia one that cannot be
laid down after it has once been taken
up. until the laat page is read.
The paper editiou ia being soki at the
low price of 25c per copy, and the hand
aomeiy bound cloth-covered edition aells
for 50c, making a popular book, at a
popular price, in deference to the un
