New Jersey Oystermen Ready
to Fight Against Ν. Y.
Health Authorities' Ruling.
By Speclat Corresponftent
Trenton, Oct. 5—The rccent ruling
Of the New York health authorities,
respecting the shipment of New Jer
sey oysters into that state, will be
fought according to announcement
today by the State Department of
Shell Fisheries, which will lay the
matter before Governor Edge and the
State Department of Health. The
New York edict is so framed that the
Îamous Jersey product of Maurice
liver Coves oysters would be almost
•hut out of that state if it is to bo
The new order is in effect that no
oysters which have been freshened
In water of less salinity than that in
which they have been grown may be
offered for sale in New York. As the
Maurice River Coves are taken from
the cove beds and freshened upon
floats over one or two tides in the
Maurice river, removing the high de
gree of saltiness to which so many
epicures object, the order would bar
them entirely from the New York
markets, whero they has always been
a brisk demand.
Members of the State Board of
Shell Fisheries declare that all sus
picion of contamination of the fresh
ened oysters has been removed by
the laws of tho state and the activi
ties of the health officers, so that
there caji bo no basis for the New
York order on that score. The only
reason they can ascribe to the drastic
order was that it was done under
pressure from the New York shippers
who may have been hard hit by tho
New Jersey product's competition. It
ts said this state will probably adopt
retaliatory measures if no other plan
for meeting the situation can be ar
Joseph N. Fowler, a member of the
State Shell Fish Board from Cumber
land county, is leading the movement
Against the New York order, and it
lute been decided to arrange, if pos
sible, for a conference with the
liealth officers of New York state on
the subject in order to show them the
injustice of their stand.
The Department of Shell Fisheries
has established a Bureau of Research
and Publicity and elected Charles R.
Bacon, who was for twelve years
bead of the old department, chief.

looks as though the sending of the
men will be postponed, on account of
