Finance Committee of Three to Meet
Once Each Month and Duties of
Game Wardens Outlined.
The report of the fish and game com
mission, filed with the governor last
evening, is a voluminous affair, much
too long to print, and longer thao any
would care to read, if printed. Out of
the mass we have gleaned the follow
ing: inat neretotore tnere nave no
accounts been kept, except in a very
desultory way, and that the commis
sion will haive these slips and notes
posted so that something can be learned
of what the commission has done, and
wheso the money has been expended. It
recommonds the turning over of all
funds to the state treasurer to be
checked out as in other state business,
the commission heretofore having main
tained its own private deposit.
It makes several other reconunenda
tions about as follows: That a board
composed of two commercial men, two
game men, with suggestion of the a.p
pointment of a fifth member from the
scientific department of some educa
tional institution.
Thet Appointment of a Chief Clerk.
Appoint from the board a finance
committee of three, who shall meet at
least once a month.
That work be divided among the
members of the commission so that each
is responsible for visiting and reporting
on certain plants.
Appoint a hatchery superintendent
with residence at Bonneville, to have
complete charge of fish and hatchery
Game warden to have complete and
exclusive control of the policing of all

three deputies or rangers to travel in
connection with his work west of the
Makes it the duty of the fish warden
to collect all licenses, look after dams,
ladders, screens, etc., and to have ex
elusive control of the policing of all
that district vest of the Cascades, for
both game and commercial interests,
and be allowed one deputy to travel in
connection with his work east of the
mountains. That the expense of polic
ing, etc., be born at the ratio of $2
from the game fund to $1 from the fish

keep in touch with the U. S. bureau of
