11 TO SAVETHE FISH Warden Curtis Wants Present law Amended. Would Hare Sale of Kansas Fish Prohibited. HARD TO GET PltOOF. Must See Man Use Spear Before He Can Be Arrested. Stringent Laws With Reference to Dynamite and Seines. If D. S. Curtis, deputy state game warden, has his way the "game hogs" of Kansas will have to bury their fishing spears, their nets, their blast ing outfits and their traps until they have decayed In the ground, and then If they refuse to make gentlemen of themselves they will bo sent to the penitentiary and serve out the maxi mum penalty. Mr. Curtis is In the city today talk ing to members of the legislature and he is here In the interests of the little and the large fish who are swimming under the ice in Kansas streams to day looking with suspicious eyes at the dark forms that sneak around ov er the roors of their domiciles. There Is something that appeals to the bet ter nature of mankind when a man of Mr. Curtis' ability spends his time day and night roaming around over the country, plodding all night along the winding rivers and damp creek beds looking for the beasts who call themselves human beings and who cut holes In the ice to drive the swarms of fish to a creek or river bend and then spear them with heartless hand. Heartless Fisherman Ways. ' Mr. Curtis has just returned from a week's hunt along the southern Kansas streams and he has found the ( cruel holes in the ice and he has found the game hogs with their fish speared and bleeding, but the law does not allow him to deal with the men when they do not have the tools in their possession. The manners and means of these "sportsmen" who spear fish in the winter time all over the state is enough to appeal to the legislature and cause some action to be taken by them for a remedy. The average fish erman of this kind works in far away places on the creeks and rivers over the state. Sometimes he works in the night time by torch light. He does anything to get away from the law and from the wardens who are always on the lookout but who are absolutely unable to cover the territory that the fishermen do. They start at a point In the river and pounding the ice they drive the fish in swarms up the river to the point where the slaughter takes place. When the swarms have been corralled and the fish have been cor nered these men drop their spears in to the water and as fast as they can extract them they pull the flopping struggling fish from the water and throw them into a sack in preparation for market. Then the spears are care-, fully hidden and the fish are piled in to wagons and taken to the towns for sale. There is not an ounce of sporting blood in this class of game- hog. They rob the Kansas streams of their In habitants for the pure purpose of mak ing money and the whole thing with them is a cold blooded money mak ing proposition. Like all evaders of the law they sneak and sk.lk dur ing their work and when they meet the wardens they falsify and do any thing to hide their guilt. It Is for the annihilation of such a class of men and for the protection of the fast dis appearing fish in Kansas that Mr. Cur tis Is working today and he has a thousand followers in the state whose idea. are mutual and who are aching for some law that will deal at once with these men who are taking an ad vantage of an opening in the law and exterminating the careful labors of the fish wardens. Wants Law Oianged. Mr. Curtis' idea is to have the law changed in such a way that it will not be necessary for the production of the tools and weapons of the "fish hogs" in order to make the evidence sufficient for conviction. His idea is to amend the present law by making it possible to convict a man who has speared fish, who has been caught With the fish upon him and who sells them at market. This resembles the regular game law and would require the same action on the part of the officials who are trying- to preserve the game in the state and keep it from utter extermination. He would have the sale of fish pro hibited entirely for five years. The present law reads that the only lawful way to fish is with a rod and Aline and fish hook, a hand line or a set T-Slne. But every year there are thou sands of pounds of fish caught in the state by men who patrol the streams with nets, traps, and dynamite. It is almost impossible for the small boy to bend a pin and dig up a worm to ob tain his fun like in the times when Whltcomb Riley was making history. And the average business man who de sires to stop his work and with the rod and reel spend a quiet day on the creek or river bank has given up his pursuits until he can travel to foreign streams and hook fish. This does not mean that the streams of Kansas are losing their stock of fish to such an alarm ing degree but the general influx of "fish hogs" who make it a business to catch the fish has spoiled the sport of the man who fishes because he likes it the man who feeds ten times as many fish as he catches and who throws them back in the stream before he goes home because he hates to clean them ad the fish are none the worse for the xperience. Fishing in Kansas has grown to be a business proposition and the recreative scent has been pushed to other lands. There are streams In Kan sas today that are alive with craw dads and water snakes while the fish cuddle under some protecting root 'waiting for the hourly passage of the deadly seine and the daily shock of the little brown jug filled with lime. But the fish of Kansas are going to have their defenders. This line of defense Is going to be under the charge of Dep uty Warden Curtis whose footsteps on the banks of Kansas streams are a signal for celebration and recreation among the citizens of Flnville. Sir. Curtis' Remedy. The FYiend of the Fish, in an inter view -with a. State Journal reporter to day, has some excellent Ideas stored away for the annual plea before the legislature and they are bound to re ceive a respectful attention from the law makers. His proposed rules for fishermen are as follows: From the passage of the law until the end of five years it would be a crime to sell any flBh to a market procured tfroxn local waters. It would be allow- WANTS AND MISCELLANEOUS ADS. OFFTCIAIj ANXOTT?TCErENTS. NATE B.

A sale of them would place a man in grave danger of convic tion. After this five years had passed there would be a limit on the amount of fish caught. No one man would be allowed to pull more than 25 pounds from the Kansas streams. Mr. Curtis suggested these laws in connection with the snear amendment which would pro vide for the right to arrest a man who had speared fish in his possession or who attempted to sell fish that had been killed or caught in this manner. The result of such amendments as suggested by the deputy fish warden can be readily seen, in nve years tne streams in Kansas would be completely restocked with fish and when the season opened again at the end of five years the oldest of weedy bank fishermen would laugh at their former tales of wonderful deeds performed with the rod and line. Fish develop very rapidly and in a few years without the continual drain from the "fish hogs'" and the cold blooded annihilation from the dealers they would fill the "holes" of the small est stream and make the small school boy and the tired out business man live in dreams and happiness. This fish situation In Kansas is no dream. The wardens are not spending their time these cold days and nights searching along the Kansas streams for fun. They are doing their best to cor rect the evil but when they attempt to enforce the law without the benefit of the law they have an Impossible duty to perform. Kansas streams are naturally the homes of the best good old-fashioned "gamy" fish in the world and a holiday on the bank of a Kansas stream is worth a hundred days in the cool hills of a summer resort. But without pro per legislation Kansas will lose her fish. lose her valuable streams, lose her sportsmanlike men and the water snakes and "craw-dads" will take pos session of the one time resort of the men who appreciate what the Maker has given.
