Restoration of the governor's power
of appointment In selection of the
game commission, whlcn was taken
from him at the special session si
the legislature for 1920, and various
alterations in the game code, drawn
for 'the further protection ot Oregon
wild life and the preservation of
sport, arc features of two proposed
measures now in the hands of Stale
Game Warden Burghduff for the con
sideration ot the commission at its
next meeting.
It is predicted that each of the two
measures will be approved by the
commission and laid before the next
session of the legislature with '.he
stamp of approval. One measure.
drawn by the commission itself, 's :
complete revision of the game cod
sweeping away inconsistencies that
arose when the commercial fishing
department was .divorced from the
game commission. The other is a
segregation bill, proposed by the
Multnomah 'Anglers' club, througn
Paul Karrens, member of the legis
lative committee, yielding to the gov
ernor all appointive and removal
powers over the commission itself.
Commission to Approve.
Though members of the commission
whose terms have not yet expired
will voice no expression relative to
this bill, it is said that It will receive
their favorable consideration and ap
proval, providing Governor Olcott will
give assurance that the present per
sonnel of the board will remain prac
tically undisturbed. -
lTnder legislative enactment of the
last special session, the five members
of the present commission hold office
from one to four years, with the ten
ure of James Driscoll, short-term
member, expiring this spring. Other
members arc I. N. Kleischner, John
Gill, Marion Jack and Earl C. Sim
mons. All were elected by the
legislature when that body cut the
Gordian knot of fish and game con
troversy. The measure now proposed
by the Multnomah Anglers' club is
regarded as an offering toward har
mony, in the best interests of wild
life and recreational pastimes of the
Third Measure 1 online Up.
A third measure also will go be
fore the legislature, and Is generally
referred to as the "Price bill." from
the fact that It is urged by It. W.
Price, ex-president of the Multnomah
Anglers' club. This bill is held by
those who have investigated it to be
a near parallel to the segregation
measure proposed by the club's legis
lative committee with odds given
for the adoption of the latter, owing
to its more complete treatment of
the problem.
The selection of the commission,
under restored gubernatorial appoint
ment, would give two representatives
to game district No. 1, west of the
Cascade range: two to game district
No. 3, east of the mountains, and one
from the state at large. The gov
ernor would be further empowered to
remove any member of the commis
sion "for the good of tbe service."
Measnrr Adds to Powers.
The proposed segregation measure
would also give the commission
power to open any closed 3eason, or
close any open season, either for
game or game fish in any district of
the state, or to further restrict bag
and creel limits in any district or
districts. Discretionary power has
long been sought by the commission
in these particulars, where it appears
that the interests of sport and pro
tection could best be served without
awaiting tardy legislative action.
"For example." said State Warden
Burghduff. "there was a dearth of
Chinese pheasants in Washington
county last fall, while Bob White
quail were plentiful. Under such
circumstances the commission should
be empowered to close the season for
the scarcer variety and open it for
the more plentiful. Sportsmen are
generally agreed on th's.
"Another instance wherein this
power could be administered bene
ficially is Klamath lake angling.
There, as everyone knows, the trout
are uniformly huge rainbow, weigh
ing from five to 20 pounds, with a
limit under the present law of 50
fish. The absurdity of permitting
any one angler to take such a catch
is apparent. In Klamath lake, as in
Crater lake, the catch should be re
stricted to five such fish."
("ode to Be Complete.
The commission's own measure,
constituting the complete substitu
tion of a new game code, differing ir.
but few particulars from the old. war
drafted because of the confusion now
existing over many references to the
"fish and game commission" a non
existent body. Rather than amend
the code in 60 per cent of its sections,
it was held advisable to re-enact a
similar code with complete revisions
and such amendments as have been
held essential. It is the purpose of
tho commission, in this new code, to
gain undisputed supervision over all
things done under tbe protection of
hunters and anglers' licenses.
The new cods seeks to establish
laws relative to migratory water
fowl that will conform to the federal
law. and orovide co-operation with
other states whose game codes have I
been redrafted to conform with the
federal migratory waterfowl stat
utes. The open season for such
shooting in district No. 1 is therefore
designated as October 1 to January
It T'nilar tho. present rod ft IS Octo
ber 16 to February 15. except in the j
counties of Multnomah, Clatsop, Co
lumbia and Tillamook, where it ends
December 31.
Conflict la Law Void.
It should be understood, however,
that any conflict of the present state
law with the federal is inoperative,
owing to the superior authority ot
the government. For district No. 2
the season is ameilded in the pro
posed code to read from September
16 to December 31. identical with the
federal season. The state seasofc
which this supersedes is from Octo
ber 1 to December 31.
"The proposed season for migratory
waterfowl," commented State Warden
Burghduff, "exactly conforms with
the federal regulations and the sea
sons in neighboring states, and it
should be remembered that the fed
eral law is based upon the advent and
duration of the wildfowl flight in
particular sections."
The new code would also give pro
tection to bear, a game animal that
has hitherto been shot at all seasons,
and would define the open season as
from October 1 to March 1, affording
Madam Bruin the consideration of the
law during that time in which she
rears her young. --uemoers oi mo
commission declare that it would be
nothing short of criminal to permit,
by continued inattention in the code,
the extermination of this important
member of Oregon's big game circles.
Trout Season to Be Limited.
It is also proposed to retard the
opening of the trout season, setting
the date at May 1 Instead of April 1,
as in the present code, and to restrict
the catch to 30 fish or 20 pounds. The
limit is now 50 fish or 35 pounds.
Those who angle for crappies, cat
fish and bass heretofore protected
by a winter closed season have been
granted an open season for the en
tire year, with the exception that
bass are protected during the spawn
ing period, from April 15 to June 15.
The catch of these fish is limited to
30 in one day, or 20 pounds.
A statute of other years, repealed
by the legislature, is sought by tht
commission in Its proposal that own
ers of dogs shall be personally liable
for the misdemeanors of their animals
in running deer; that dogs shall not
rur at large In the woods during the
open season: and that it snail De un
lawful to take dogs -into deer country
during the open season exceptions
being made, of course, with regard tc
dogs owned by residents and kept
upon the home property.
Another proapsed section would
make It unlawful to kill game birds
from an automobile, thus putting an
end to the practice of carrying small
rifles in Dleasure cars and the con
sequent temptation of "potting" way
side grouse, pheasant and quail.
Increased license fees will also be
asked $3 for each license, hunting or
fishing, and $5 for a combination
license. Though the commission has
favored an increase in the fee, it is
not Improbable that it will partially
reject this proposal and content itself
with increasing the license fee to
$2.50 for each license. The present
license fee. either for hunting or fish
ing permits, is $1.50, or $3 for a
combination license. The new code
would also make it compulsory for
women to take out hunting and
angling licenses.
In the trapping section the com
mission seeks protection for the rac
coon as a fur-bearer.
Commission Wants All.
Under the present law o per cent of
all license fees collected in the va
rious counties have been held by the
county clerks and diverted to county
funds. The commission seeks to
amend this by requiring that the en
tire fee be forwarded, representing
from $6000 to $8000 annually, or
enougb to establish a new trou'
hatchery every year. In the financial
section it is also provided that all
moneys collected for fines in infrac
tions of the game laws be remitted
direct from justice court to the state
game warden's office, instead of to
the state treasurer,, and that the game
fund receive the full amount of such
fines, instead of the 50 per cent now
allowed It by the state. Fines in the
commercial division have always been
allotted In full to that department,
and the game commission is insistent
that similar recognition be given the
atne department.
Another amendment requires that
guides shall pay an annual license
fee of $3 and shall submit their qual
ifications to the state "game commis
sion before such authority is issued.
Protection of the tourist against un
scrupulous guides is the end aimed at.
thoush it is also required that all
guWes. before they depart with their
patrons for the wilds, shall see to it
that the sp8rtsmn have procured the
proper licenses. It is additionally re
quired that guides shall be citizens
of the United States.
The proposed legislation, botlf the
segregation bill of the Multnomah
Anglers' club and the new game code,
will be discussed by the commission
at its next session. Saturday morning
at 10 o'clock, and will probably go be
fore tho legislature with but minor
