Briefly, it contemplates dividing the entire territory •of the United States, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, into two concessions along the line of the fortieth parallel of latitude, .or near It, for each of which there shall be uniform law. 1 ) and uniform close time, the whole to be \mder lhe;pollce surveillance of the National association for the protection of game »nd flab, throughout its' multifarious atate auxiliaries. The close time for the-northern concession will be from January 1 to September 1, and in the •outhe.vn concession Irom February 1 to'September 1, during which no shoot- tog shall be allowed on any .kind of game whatever, excepting that woodcock and shore birds of the order Llml- colae may be shot in August. The general close time for nil kinds of inland flsbee, recognized as game fishes, to extend from October 1 to June 1. excepting that fishes of the order Sat- monldae, Including tho trouts, may be caught In April and May. These close leasons conform very nearly to the distribution, habitat, and breeding seasons of the Various fauna which nre (ought to be protected; and where '"they do not especial exceptions may be made, if deemed expedient. The laws which are to dominate will Inhere by legislative enactment; uniform In all the states, and co-operative throughout. Emergencies and bodily stress will always stand in. plea for exemption from penalty foij violation of the laws, when well proven. Anrarlcnn Honim In En*l»nrt.
