CHIAESE DODGE DEPUTIES
Chief Deputy Charles A. Vogelsang of
the state fish and game commission
offered his explanations yesterday to
the state senate committee investigat
ing the high cost of living as to why
it was impossible for the commission
with its 60 salaried deputies to stop
infractfons of the law by the Chinese
shrimp fishermen on the waters of the
bay.
He admitted that the commission
received as much as 1140,000 a year to
carry on its work, but added that it
had not been possible to keep deputies
at the fish canjps and prevent the un
lawful taking of small fish by Chinese
shrimp fishermen. That his explana
tions did not explain satisfactorily may
be Judged by the comments of the com
mittee and Senator Welch printed
above.
Vogelsang made a long statement In
which he said that there had been no
restrictions on ehfimp fishing until
1899, when a closed season of fout
months was established. Up to • the
time of the enactment of the nonexporjt
law the Chinese were shipping SO per
cent of the shrimp? x>.ut of the country^
after having dried them. ;-~"*" r: ' .
ORIE.VTALS DESTROY EVIDENCE
•The catching of shrimp is harmful
on the food supply, of fish in- the bay,"
admitted Vogelsang. -Large quanti
ties of fish are caught in these Chinese
set nets." : . \u25a0
The official went on to say ,that it
was hard to secure .evidence. -against
the Chinese; that they would destroy
the evidence when the commissioner's
deputies approached them. In spite of
this, however* the' state senate com\
mittee. last week went to the camp at
McXear's point and found half a .ton. .of
dead fish on the beach and made no
effort to approach by stealth.
Vogelsang said that one way to stop
the destruction of fish would be to
prohibit the use of the bag net, or
Chinese shrimp net. In the day. A
closed season of two years on shrimps
would also have a beneficial effect.
The witness would not confirm Sen
ator Wolfe's remark that of the -60
deputies employed by the commission
10 were used in protecting the food
fish of the bay, while 50 were engaged
In protecting the game fish of the
interior.
WOULD PROHIBIT EXPORTS
When Senator Welch asked whether
it would be advisable to pot a deputy
st each fish camp Vogelsang said that
it was the aim of the commission to
have a deputy in each county. . He
volunteered the Information that there
had been $4 arrests during- the last
year for catching undersized fish. and
that the fines amounted to $1/600.- He
would be pleased to see a fine with a
greater minimum than $20 anfe he
thought it would reduce the local price
of fish if there were a law prohibiting
the shipment of striped bass out of the
state.
After an unsuccessful effort to secure
any very valuable Information from
Vogelsang, Chairman Wolfe asked him
to gather such data as he could for the
benefit of the next legislature In draft-
Ing remedial laws.
RETAILERS BLA3IED FOR PRICES
G. W. Root shipping clerk for the
Western fish company, volunteered the
Information that the retailers were
making too great a profit on the flsh
they handled.
John Flnocchlo of South San Fran
cisco, who controls the mussel market,
was an unimportant witness, who de
nied knowing anything of the opera
• tlons of the flsh trust.
\u25a0 The committee then announced that
. it had concluded . Its Investigation of
. the fish question and would turr the
" evidence over to the district attorney
• and the attorney general. In the near
.future the committee will go into an
investigation of other food. supplies to
whether the markets are
being cornered:
Cold 6torage plants In San Fran
" cisco and vicinity will be visited in an'
' effort to gain information as to whether
• or not prices are being kept up through
. the operation of cold storage plants.
