240 NEWJAME LAWS.
Local Legislation to Protect
Birds and Big Game Nine
States Agree with Fed
More than 240 new game laws were
enacted during 1915-r-a larger number
than in, any previous year except 1911,
according to Farmers' Bulletin 692,
Game Laws Tor 11915. Forty-three
States held regular legislative ses
sions, and in all of these States ex
cept Arizona, Georgia, and Nebraska
some changes were made in the stat
utes protecting game. The largest
number of new game laws passed in
any one State was 01, in North Caro
lina; but in California, Connecticut,
Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsyl
vania, and Wisconsin the number
reached 10 or more. Several meas
ures were vetoed, including a general
game bill in Idaho, the first bill ap
propriating the hunting-license fund
in Pennsylvania, a bill protecting
lears in California, and three sections
of the game bill in Washington. A
number of bills were introduced for
the purpose of harmonizing the Stte
laws on migratory birds with the Fed
eral regulations. In at least nine
States changes were made which
brought the seasons into substantia!
agreement, viz, 'California, Connec
ticut, Maine, Michigan, New Hamp
shire, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
In Illinois the seasons for all migra
tory birds except coot and waterfowl,
and in Washington for the smaller
shore birds ,vere made to conform
with the regulations under the Fed
eral law. Uniformity was also se
cured by provisions in the laws of
Connecticut, Maine, New Mexico,
North Dakota, Washington, and Wis
cousin, prohibiting hunting between
sunset and sunrise. On the other
hand, Delaware adopted a resolution
ontiosi-ig the migratory-bird law, and
Ohio and Rhode Island, which had har
monize their seasons in lul l, changed
the seasons on waterfowl this year.
As a result of the decision of the
Supreme Court of the United States!
on January 19, 1914, sustaining the
alien hunting law of Pennsylvania,
legislation prohibiting alien" from
hunting or owning shotguns or rifles
was enacted in at least four States
Massachusetts. New Jersey, North
Dakota, and West Virginia but cer
tain exceptions based on property'
eitialilieations were made in Massa
chusetts and New Jersey.
Close seasons extending for sever
al years were provided for certain
kinds of big game and also fbr game
birds. Hunting mountain sheep was
suspended in Idaho, Montana, and
Washington, and goats were protected
until 1918 in Montana. Moose were
protected for four years in Maine,
the iirst absolute close season on this
species for ;!5 years since the sus
pension of hunting from 1S7K to 1SS9.
Antelone were given indefinite protec
tion i i Now Mexico and .Montana. In
Michigan, New Mexico, and Oklahoma
prairie chickens were protected for
sever:'' .us. Micbiga l extended
complete protection also to quail, im
ported pheasants, grouse, and wood
ducks for live years. Minnesota pro
tected doves, woodcock, plover, and
wood durks until 191S. New Mexico
gave protection to pheasants, bob
whites, pigeons, and strains, Oklaho
ma protected cloves, grouse, wood
protected through the year. Oklaho
ma gave such protection to pelicans,
gulls, and herons. lennessee declared-
ring-neck pheasants, bull bats, rob
ins, and meadow larks to be nongame
birds. In a few cases protection was
removed from certain species nota
bly the turkey buzzard in Delaware,
Florida, and North Carolina, owls and
starlings in New Hampshire, and cor
morants in Illinois and North Dakota.
For the first time in 12 years moose
hunting is permitted in Wyoming, and
for the first time since 1907 prairie
chicken shooting is permitted in Indi
Novel Features erf State Laws.
Among the novel features in the
laws this year may be mentioned the
declaration in the Florida law that
ownership of game is vested in the
respective counties: the provisic-n in
the California law protecting spike
bucks, or deer with unbranched horns.,
instead of a certain length; and the
Wyoming experiment of allowing the
killing of 50 bull moose under $100
licenses instead of an indefinite num
ber during a limited season. Methods
of hunting were restricted in Michi
gan by prohibiting the use of auto
mobiles in hunting partridges, and in
Indiana by prohibiting the use of
searchlights or other artificial lights
attached to autos for hunting game
on or near a highway. Several new
restrictions on shipments appeared
for the first time: Illinois prohibited
importation from outside the State of
any game excep deer legally killed;
Pennsylvania prohibited shipment of
game by parcel post; and Wisconsin,
shipment under an alias. Connecti
cut authorized the commissioners of
fisheries and game to grant permits
to bring in game lawfully killed out
side the State, provided such game is
not offered for sale.
Notwithstanding the, agitation in
favor of protecting quail for several
years in some sections, no bills of
this kind were passed this year, and
!fl States still provide quail shooting.
The seasons were shortened (! weeks
in Oklahoma and 2 weeks in Nevada.
Limits were established for the first
time in Arkansas and New Hamp
shire, reduced in Iowa from 25 to 15
per day, in Oklahoma from 25 to 10,
m Minnesota from 15 to 10, and in
creased in Nevada from 15 to 20. All
but 14 of the States which permit
nuail hunting now have a limit of 20
birds or less per clay.
All the States now allow water
fowl hunting, but the wood dcuk is
protected for several years through
out the northern zone and in the south
cm zone in the States of California,
Kansas, and West Virginia. Daily
bag limits were established for the
first time in Arkansas and Connecti
cut, reduced in Oklahoma from 25 to
10, and increased in Missouri from
10 to 15. Most of the States now
have a limit of 25 or less per day.
Open seasons were lengthened i.i
Montana on elk and deer 2-weeks;
in Florida on deer and birds .'! weeks;
in Minnesota on quail 20 days; and
in Nevada on sage hens 4 1-2 months,
cm grouse 1 month, and on quail Z
cei: :. New Jersey reverted to ths
former plan of hunting deer on 4 con

ber of States. In the case of big
game Hie deer season was curtailed in

Washington 2 weeks. In New Mexico

Florida, Nevada,' New Jersey, and
Wyoming; establishment of a limit
in Arkansas; and decrease in the lim

Under present conditions deer
hunting is permitted in 36 States, in
about one-third of which the hunter
is limited to one deer a season and in
most of the others to two. Eighteen
Sates protect does at all seasons and
allow only bucks to be killed name
ly, Alabama, Arizona, California, Geor
gia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, New
Mexico, Nevada, New York, Oklaho
ma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas,
Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and
Wisconsin. Pennsylvania requires
that deer killed shall have horns 2
inches above tlie hair, New York and
Vermont at least 3 inches long, and
West Virginia 4 inches long, while
California prohibits entirely the kill
ing of spike bucks.

Letter on This Subject
Can you give the meaning of the
terms applied to rear axles floating,
semifloating, live and three-quarter
Ordinary motorcar nomenclature gives
us three types of live rear axles, call
ed respectively floating, three-quarter
floating and semilioatliig. Live axles
are those which turn, such as those
named, while dead axles are those used
on double chain drive ears and do not
turn. The floating axle Is one that
floats that is. it turns around, but
does not carry nny weight It is used
to gain rotary motion only. The semi
floating axle, however, not ouly turns
the wheels, but takes some of thci
weight of the ear. The difference be
tween these two types of axles is in
the position of the wheel bearings. In
the floating axle the wheel bearftiga
are outside of the housing. The rear
wheels of the car rest upon these bear
ings. It can be seen plainly that If
the wheels rest upon the bearings and
the bearings upon the housing the
housing must support the weight of
the car. The end of the nxle shaft has
some form of jaw clutch which fits
Into depressions in the wheel hub. In
the floating axle this connection be
tween axle shaft and wheel is flexible,
but In the three-quarter floating typo
the end of the shaft Is permanently
attache'd to the wheel, being held usu
ally by bolts.
In the semifloating type of rear axlo
the bearing for the wheel instead of
being outside the housing is Inside
The wheel is placed on the nxle and
held there by a key. Sometimes the
ends of the axle shafts are square and
the Inside of the wheel square, so that
no key is necessary. With the wheels
on the axle shafts, nuts are screwed
on the ends of the shafts to prevent
I the wheel from backing off. The nuts
are locked with cotter pins.

Should you find that there are no
