INCALCUBLE LOSS RESULTS
FROM THEIR CONSTANT,
HELP OF ALL IS ASKED
"Sv th Birds Who Save Our Llvei
and Our Crops," U the Watchword
of the National Audubon Societies,
the Protectors of Birds.
NEW YORK, Aug. 26. While the
light fur the presidency is prcuiing
over the country, another national
campaign for the right of the leath
ered population of the continent is to
be prclcd with redoubled force from
this city to-day. Acting for the in
land birds whose further extinction
must lay barren all the land and (or
(tie water fowl whose death will bring
en national oestilence. the National
Association of Audubon Societies has
mapped out every section of the tin
ted States and organized a force of
speakers to bring home their fssues
to all the people. Though the politi
cal battle will end next November,
this campaign for the birds will be
ceaselessly carried to every American
citizen until eventually the federal and
state governments shall establish bu
reaus to adequately meet the nation
al need for economic bird preserva
tion. Seven able organisations have been
to-day assigned to cover as many di
visions of the whole country and es
tablish local headquarters' in this uni
que campaign for the national feath
ered life. At a constant cost of $20,-
'.000 a year these trained workers will
be kept on tour till every community
In the land has had the opportunity to
bear the story of the dying birds and
the loss of lives and crops which their
decrease threatens. Funds to increase
tfiis campaigning force will be sought
from every man, woman and child In
the country who cares for the birds
or has a dollar at stake in the agricul
tural and commercial Interests, which
they alone can guard from destruc
tion. While Only about a thousand
members to-day help the National As
sociation of Audubon Societies to
maintain scores of reservations, an
army of wardens, a small fleet of pa
trol boats and a staff of educational
"workers, it is believed that, when the
present emergency is brought home to
, the nation, many thousands will en
list in the movement.
"Save the birds who save our lives
and crops," is to be the watchword of
the new national campaign which is
being launched at Audubon headquar
ter, here to-day. The prediction of
Henry V. Henshaw, a government ex
pert, that "were the birds extermina
ted it is almost .certain that not only
would successful agriculture become
Vimpossible but the destruction of the
greater part of- vegetation would fol
low," is to be its key-note. The es
tablished fact that destructive insect
life is to-day alarmingly on the in
crease and the birds, its natural
check, steadily becoming extermina
ted will be set forth before every far
mer, orchardist, railroad and business
man together with the known loss of
$800,000,000 due to this condition last
year. Medical authorities will be ci
ted and the profession aroused to the
possibilities of plague in the decline
of the waterfowl, Nature's scavengers.
w in.nd to nlace before all the
. people the greatest non-partisan Is
sue confronting the nation at this
time," said William Dutcher, presi
dentof the National Association of Au-
' dubon Societies . at Its headquarters,
141 Broadway, to-day, "We are
squarely faced by "an Impending nat
ional calamity and yet the government
only appropriates some $62,000 a year
to investigate and educate on' this
paramount economic problem. As
much is put Into one single gun which
Is soon worn out. Until the federal
and state governments are forced by
the people to establish adequate de
partments or bureaus for the expert
handling of this important subject our
association will keep p this ? fight
throughout the nation. I believe this
work will eventually be adopted as
one of the government's most essen
tial activities; but, until it is, we shall
call on all patriotic Americans to help
uV fill the breach and struggle with
the grave problem, which, aside from
sentiment, is of( intense economic im
portance." . "

NEW PURE FOOD LAW

CONSUL MURPHY HAS PILED

WASHINGTON, Aug. 26The
United States pure food law instead of
hampering foreign trade has benefit
ted it and seems have carried with "it
a greater respect for foreign labels, is
the opinion expressed by the United
Slates Consul, Dominic I. Murphy, at
Eordeaux, France, former commis
sioner of pensions, in a report on
French exports to the United States.
Consul Murphy says the records of
the Bordeaux consulate, one of the
firt places which would naturally feel
the ' effects of changed conditions,
show that the declared values of ex
ports of French foods and food pro
ducts to the United States during the
firt year of the operation of the pure-
food law actually increased. The va
lue of alimentary repast, foods includ
ing macaroni increased almost $47,000
during 1907 as compared with 1906,
jam and jellies increased $19,921, ol
ive oil $63,733, preserved fruits $34708,
preserved vegetables $55,132, still
nines $96,789, and sparkling wines
$5,909. Other articles classed as
foods showed decreased exportation
but the decrease in almost every item
may be properly accounted for with
out reference to the pure food law,
says the consul.
Exports of brandy fell off $11,285,
but the records show a much greater
falling off in 1906, compared with 1905.
The decrease in preseved fish, which
was considerably due solely to the
practical failure of the sardine fisher

As for liques the slight decrease Is
due to the provision of the pure food
law forbidding the use of certain col
