STILL AFTER FISHERMEN
W* take the following from that ex
cellent but ill-informed piscatorial
btudent. The Eastern Sbor* Heraid:
The Heraid has often referred to tbe
questiou uf the preservation of the food
tish supphe- of the State. Until some
thing ,s done to prevent the wholesale
jdestruction of those fish which help to
supply food to the food fish. there must
lof Beeeaaity be a diminution of those
tl\" people are accu.stomed to eat. The
qah [ertuizer factoriea are now working
overtimc catching all claaaea of nah for
the parppaea mentioned, and thereby
driving tho lV?od fish away from our
waters forcvor, and the public wid wake
up to the facts when it is too late. The
Virginian-Pilot givea the truth of the
situution in the following worda, which
aforemm?dad tothcthoughtful reader:
"Newapapere along the coaat are dia
eussing the fish question. It ia rather
amusing to observe the laborious efforta
Of sotne contcmporaries to prove that
the catching of milliona and milliona of
nicntuuh n and other aimilar fish to be
uacd as fortilizcra has nothing to do
wiihtho disappearenee of the food iiah.
As we understand. the menhaden is the
natural food of the blue fish, the bay
maekcre! and othcrs.
"*et it is contendcd that when the
menhaden are taken away blue fish and
l?ay mackerel ought to be as abundant
as ever. lt would be just as logical to
uisist when all the graas is burned from
aeountry cattle should continue to flour
ish there. If blue fish and mackerel can
lind nothing to eat along the Virginia
shores, how are they to remain here?
We do not think all the witticism,
all the assumption of superior knowledge
and expert intelligence and all the talk
of the commercial value of the fish fer
tlhaer industry that can be done will
convince the public in the face of plain
common scnse and facts of general
knowledge. We are not prepared to
say that the business of taking fish to
>e used for fertilizer should be abolishcd.
1 robably our fertile waters can furnish
enough of such fish for reasonable sup
ply for commercial use while leaving in
the waters enough of them to bring
MCI the food fish. But all the evidence
?eenu to he that the taking of the
rnenbaden should be limited. Captain
L)avid Stormont, of Virginia Beach,
deacnbed by the Norfolk Virginian
I ilot aK one of the largest and raost ex
pera need pound net fishermen of the
State prohably indicates the pmper
remedy. He suggests tothe Virginian
I ilot that menhaden fishermen and
others fiahing for fertilizing purposea
should be prohibited from fiahing within
a fixed distance of the ehore. The old
law. we believe. puts this limit at three
Theae two well meaning papera take
"hear-aay" for evidence and arrive at
a verdict. They overlook, or are moat
likely ignorant of practical demonatra
tiona aa to the eatch of food fish by the
menhaden men. No good fish. like blue
fish, is cver ground up. When an oc
caaional one comes ilapping aboard he
i* grabbed with avidity for the table.
Each menhaden concern paya out thous
anda of *1ollara annually for fiah for
tlieir men'a tablea. The State of Vir
ginia and the V. S. Govornment have
both rigidly !?H)ked into the ajueation.
Government experts say man'a efforta
at diminiahing the menhaden is but a
"drop in the bucket." If we did not
catch them the' big syndicatea north
would. and then our farmera would
s<jueel at the high price of fertilizer.
The bluefish and mackrel first appear
oir tho Virginia-Nortii Carolina coast
each season and they are set upon by
fleots of northern lx>ats. They are
iw*th wary fish and shun in-shore, capes
and inlets. There is no appreciable
diminution of theae species, as evidenced
by the large and growing fleets during
tbe past twenty years purauing them.
They have grown acarce in the Chesa
peake-not for lack of live menhaden
to chase, for these have comein greater
abundance-but becauae of a foolish law,
happily repealed by the recent legisla
ture, which prohibited non-residents
from catching blue fish within our capes.
Up to the time of that exclusive act of
some years ago bluefish were plentiful
in our waters. This fish swarms where
it can get food easily, and that is at the
mouth of our capes where the ostracized
northern fleCts bait them. Now that
they will be allowed to bait and toll
them into the Chesapeake we expect in
a year or so an increase in the catch
here, by our own people as well as by
In quoting Mr. Stormont, our Norfolk
contemporary losea aight of the fact
that his is an ex parte statement. From
I>ersonal acquaintance we know that a
aingle one of his big nets will catch
more food fish (exclusive of herring
during the glut) in a aeaaon than are
ground up by all the menhaden factoriea
or are aupplied on the tablea of the

The companies themaelvesdo not deny
that thcir charges are higher than the

they dare not lower them for fear busi

which it can be expeditiously handled.
This is a philanthropic view for which
the country will not be disposed to give,
and has no reason to give, the express
monopolies credit. If the people's in
terests are what the express concerns
have at heart, why their persistent and
unyielding opposition to such extension
of the parcels post as would at one and
the same time multiply the facilities for
the carrying of Darcela, relieve them of
a part of their overburdening business
and so render both possible and neces
sary a reduction in charges?
