wide, by fifteen miles long, and t a
about six feet deep.
It supplies an
ideal breeding place for wide water-
fowl, Mr. Peargon says, and therefore,
it attracts wild geese and ducks from
Canada in large numbers. Ita destruc
tion, he declares will leave thousands
o f young water-fowl without a hame.
Secretary Pearson has taken t h e
matter up with the officials o f the
General Land office, who have promised
to investigate. It is understood that
those who plan the destruction o f the
bird reservation have already secured
the cooperation o f the state land board
o f Oregon. For that reason, Mr. Pear
son regards the situation as immnent
and believes it will require quick and
earnest appeal to the Secretary o f the
interior from those who believe in the
protection o f wild birds to prevent the
destruction o f the colony.
“ There are about five million guns in
the United States” said Mr. Pearson,

migratory game birds is to have these
