Addressing Sportsmen Ho Tells Them
They Should Trotcct All Wild
Speaking at Thursday night's ses
sion of the sportsmen's convention in
Scranton, United States Senator
Boles Penrose advocated good roads,
forest conservation, protection of
streams from pollution and the con
servation and protection of all wild
life and urged co-operation between
the farmers and the sportsmen of the
state. After a brief introductory
statement of his pleasure in meet
ing the sportsmen, Senator Penrose
gave the key to his address as fol-

lows: "The true sportsman, whether
lie be hunter or fisherman, if he is
loyal to the real interests of his fav

earnest friend of conservation in the

He gave praise to the sportsmen
of this state for the work they have
done in securing better laws for the
protection of all wild life and then
delighted his large and appreciative
audience with porsonal reminiscences
of liis hunting days in the Rocky
Mountains. Ho told, picturesquely
of the changes in the physical condi
tion of the country since the advent
of the white man and expressed the
thought that in the early stages of
the country's history the destruction
of wild game and the forests were
necessary in the onward march of

He said that Pennsylvania is in the
lead of the states in the matter of
game protection and called attention
to its six forest sanctuaries where
not even a gun can bo taken. He
said this is the only state having

adoption in all states.
The senator spoke of the value of
Arbor day in educating the children
to tho necessity of forest conserva
tion and aroused the enthusiasm of
the sportsmen when he suggested
that the state have Bird Day, either
in connection with Arbor Day or
separately, "devoted to instructing
children in the value of our native
birds and the best means of protect
ing them." The senator urged the
raising of game as an economic prop
osition, particularly the elk and deer
which he said wore as good or bet
ter food than the steer or sheep. On
this point he said:
"Tho elk and deer can be raised
successfully and cheaply under many
different conditions of food and cli
mate. Safeguard, of course, against
the destruction and sale of wild deer,
under the guise of domesticated deer
must be made and enforced. Game
laws deserve tho hearty support and
co-operation of the farmers of the
state and of the country. The object
of game preservation is not only to
preserve a few aninicls and birds to
furnish sport for a limited number,
but to protect and increase useful
species for tho benefit of the people
in general. The object is the pre
servation not oniy of game animals
and game birds, but also birds of
song and plumage, and those which
are useful as scavangers or as de
stroyers of injurious insects and
