(!, Thimas of Stowe, who was In this city to attend the Rut land County Fish and ilame league bar quet last night, was to-day Interviewed as to his opinion of the cause of the scarcity of ruffed gro'ie In Vermont and other New Kngland States. Mr. Thomas does not put much credence in the story that it Is the cold wet spring ot 19v' and depredations of foxes which have killed off the birds for, he contends, we have always had fo.vs and cold springs are by no means uncommon In Vermont, yet no living sportsman can remember a year "when partridge, were so scarce. It Is man, Mr. Thomas says, who is the worst enemy of the partridge and the pot hunter, who, after his spaniel dog has treed the birds kills the last one of a covey, Is responsible for tho scarcity He predicted that unless very stringent protection is enforced at once, the grouse will become extinct us sure as the pa st-ncer jilg.-on has, He recommended a 21 license for rei'dent aliens nnd u law prohibiting them carrying a gun during the closed seas. -i. Mr. Thoina.- said that the fact that 440 more deer were killed In 1907 tnan during tho pn . mus year did not Indicate a big increas" nf deer In Vermont for there were twice ns many hunters In tho woods. A re. nnl like that recently ie ported, M0 deer Illegally killed, besides those legally sHughtered since June 20, l&oo, 11 soon exti-mln.Uo the deer In this little State. When the fanners begin to rczo the Importance of fish am game preservation and to report cery violation of the laws then public sentin.ents will be turned in the right direction nnd not until then will Vermont ec proper enforcement of the fish and tunc laws.

The question arose as to tho advis ability of holding the meetings In less eomf.irtnble rooms nt a ' mailer cost. Representative Haskins. with his usual loyalty to his State, offered to pay one half the difference if some ono would Join him. Mr. Graves offered the other half nnd by the courtesy of these two good Vermonters the meetings will still he held In comfortable quarters. Expressions of regret were henni on all sides, that there were .ome represen tative Vermonters In the city who were not members of the nssocriilnn. Efforts will be made to put the matter before all. It Is said that the people of no State nre ns clnnnMi ns those r,f Vermont, and thl fact Is exempllfed by theso hearty gatherings. Any Vermonter is made to feel perfectly at home nnd In the coure of an evening usually finds one or more relatives among those present.
