Salem, Jan. 31.—Suggest!* ns that it
be prescribed ss a penitentiary offense
to kill an elk, and that a closed season
of from two to five years be placed on
China pheasants, are some of the more

It was also urged that the season on
deer be set back a month, opening the
season September 1 instead uf August

the forests from fires, many of which
are said to be started by hunters.
Heavier bounty on timber wolves,
cougars, and bobcats was asked, as a
protection for deer.

extend to March 1 instead of to Feb
ruary 15, as at present.
