the fish had been presented to the
fishermen by James Riley, father-in-law
of Mr. Ackerman, who is spend

thought Mr. Mumford nnd Mr. Betz
had experienced great luck, but Mr.
Mumford told them ho felt quite
suro he could beat that day's catch
in strictly Wayno county water.
Both men camo homo elated by their
outing up river and today their
friends have not had to press them
in order to get details of their suc

ho wlshqd it could rain today or
tomorrow so he could take a trout
trip to supplement his bass trip.

Commissioner Smith of Jersey Writes
Commissioner Hunter Shnrp Letter.
A despatch from Trenton, N. J.,
Threatening to retnllnto upon the
motorists of Pennsylvania unless the
discrimination of the Keystone Btato
tigalnst those of New Jersoy is re
moved, State Motor Vehicle Commis
sioner Smith hns written a lengthy
letter to John W. Hunter", state
highway commissioner of Pennsyl
vania, requesting thnt Pennsylvania
extend to New Jersey motorists the
privileges provided for ih the ad
joining stHte's reciprocal motor ve
hicle law. Commissioner Smith goes
at length into the details of New Jer
sey's system of improved roads, the
absence of toll roads, the largo
amounts expended annually to keep
tho roads In repair, so that they shall
always afford good riding for auto
mobilists, and the comparatively
small cost of a non-resident motor
ist's privilege. He also recites tho
fact that should Pennsylvania see fit
to provide as many good roads in
proportion to Its size as New Jer
sey, it would cost more than?100,
000,000; that the expense and an
noyance of Pennsylvania's numerous
toll roads more than balance the ex
pense and annoyance of obtaining a
New Jersey non-resident automobile
license, and points out that the po
lice departments of numerous Penn
sylvania -municipalities have special
orders to look out for and annoy
New Jersey .automoblllsts. Commis
sioner Smith further says, In part:
"New Jersey motorists desiring to
operate their cars In Pennsylvania
have on several occasions called the
attention of this department to the
construction placed on the provis
ions of the Pennsylvania reciprocal
law relating to motor vehicles, which
.provides that privileges granted to
.non-residents shall not apply to
residents of those states that do not
extend similar privileges to resi
dents of Pennsylvania. The privi
leges referred to are that non-resl-idents
shall be exempt from the pro
visions of the act for a period of 10
days if they have complied with the
registration laws of the state In
.which they reside.
"To New Jersey motorists reci
procity is denied, notwithstanding
that the New Jersey law provides
nnnrresident privileges of eight days
upon registration and the payment
of a nominal fee, and yet in dealing
with residents of other states, many
of whose registration laws are In
many respects wholly dissimilar to
those of Pennsylvania, a liberal con
struction of the reciprocal provision
is made, and residents of other
states are accordingly extended
courtesies which are denied residents
of New Jersey. In addition to this,
the police departments of many
Pennsylvania municipalities have is
sued orders specially directing that
the automobile law shall be strictly
enforced against residents of New
"For this reason two of the larg
est cliibs of New Jersey have, by
resolution, and many motorists have
personally urged me to exercise the
prerogative of the department and
refrain from issuing tourists' licenses
to residents of Pennsylvania. I dis
like vei;y much to pursue each a
course, and will not do bo except as
a last resort. Retaliatory measures
seem to me to be methods of wnr
fare coming to us from a less en
lightened civilization, to be used only
when Individual rights can be ob
tained In no other way. I am con
fident that some way may bo found
whereby citizens of New Jersey will
not be discriminated against while
touring In your state. If your law
Is to bo strictly construed, I am suro
that your authorities will, upon re
flection, so construe it to nfTect iill
alike. If n liberal construction is to
bo employed,' I trust all will receive
