MIGRATORY BIRD LAW GOOD
site, Pat Validity to High Court.
WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED
Dr. William T. llnrnmlnr Write n
Oprn letter to thr Politic Jet
llnff Forth rionn of nirtl
William T. Hornaday of New York, the
jrll known ornithologist and conservator
Of the National museum, has addresaed
tha public In an open letter Concerning
th recent decision of a Judge of the
fnlted States court In Arkansas holding
the federal game law lo be unconstitu
tional. The case was brought at the in
stance of some Kansas City shooters, who
resented having spring shooting inter
fered with. Dr. Hornaday says:
"To the Tress and the Public at Large:
In a short time the enemies of the migra
tory bird law will, with great glee, an
nounce once more that the law Is 'un
constitutional.' This time the statement
will have a little moro to rest upon than
the soap-box decisions of learned spring
shooters of wild fowl who never even saw
the Rational constitution.
"In the wilds of eastern Arkansas, at
Jonesboro, on May 27, In the United States
court, the case of the United States
against Harvey C. Schauver, for a viola
tion of the federal migratory bird law,
was heard by Judge Jacob Trleber, who
decided that 'the law Is unconstitutional.'
Of course the United States will carry
the case up until It finally reaches the
I.'nlted States supreme court, where, with
extra expedition, a decision may bo ex
pected In about eighteen months.
"The first decision on the status of the
migratory law was that rendered In
South Dakbta on April It; 1814, by Judge
J. D. Elliott of the federal court, who de
cided. In the case of A. M. Shaw, that
the law Is constitutional. Mr. Shaw
pleaded guilty and was fined $100, which
Test Cne l Welcome.
"Inasmuch as a test case was neces
sary, wc are very glad that the name
of no real game-protecting state Is In
any way connected with It 'Tho Arknn
saw Case' soon will rival tho fame of
tn 'Arkansaw Traveler,' and the natne
of Schauver will go thundering down
.the ages as the Inheritance of the chil
dren of the man who permitted himself
to be used in the abortive effort that was
made In 1914-15 to destroy the only law
that was able to save the migratory
Wrds of North America from annihila
tion. "The friends of birds need feel no
alarm over this Incident, nor anything
more serious than mild Interest. Unlesa
he United Btatcs supreme court delib
erately elects to pull down a full scoro
jt laws that tho representatives Of tho
American people hayo enacted In con
jrress for the greatest good of the great
est number, the federal migratory bird
JaW will stand, The side of tho people
and the birds will be taken care of, It
need be, by a hundred' ab'le lawyers, who
re fully convinced, that the law Is con
stitutional, and that Its stability can ho
demonstrated to the satisfaction of any
open and logical legal mind.
"In addition to' the score or more of
Cw York and .Washington lawyers -who
havr offered their service, to-tula cause,
aomoiof whom already, haveiprepared ex
pended brief s, . Frederic K. CduderJ, bhtf
.of the most distinguished member of
the American bar, has volunteered his
Service on the side of the birds an offer
:whlth undoubtedly will be accepted. The
United States Department' of Justice,
headed by Attorney General Mclteynolds,
can confidently be trusted to conduct the
people's fight for the birds with all the
legal acumen and resources of' that de
partment, aad the organized spring shoot
era of Kansas City now will have an
opportunity to contribute money In aid
of their cause and Mr. Schauver.
Spring Shooters Will Hhoat.
"Of course the enemies of the law will
laugh first, and claim the decision In
advance. The Kansas City spring-shooters
wilt make ft great effort td rush the
supreme court and secure i. decision In
their favor In time to give them their be
loved sprlng-shootlng privilege next Jan
uary; for dear to the heart of tho spring
hooter of 1911 Is the privilege of slaugh
tering egg-laden ducks and geese In
March, April and May, For that they
are willing to rob the farmers and for
est owners of America of the only law
that ever can or ever will adequately
protect their best atltes-the Insectivor
ous birds. It Is this feature of Kansas
, City selfishness that Is so exasperating,
and we may weft believe that the mem
bership of the Interstate Spring-shooters
