Game Warden's Report,
Gnmo Wardon Baker has filed his
seml-nunual roport, which, whllo too
long to print, Is full of good sugges
tions. Ho calls special attontlon to
tho expiration of tho law protecting
oiks, and tho fact that thoro is not
money enough provided to mako ex
amination Into complaints for viola
tlons of tho law, and tholr prosecu
tion. He also calls attontlon to tho
fact tho,t tho gamo laws aro not put
up In pamphlot form nor aro thoy so
arranged In tha statutoa that anything
short of an admlrallty lawyer could
understand them. This uncertainty
of the law makea its violation not
only moro frequont, but tho punish
mont almost an Impossibility, for
juries will not convict under tbo'con-dltlons.
