Eiltor and Proprietor 1
"Free from the doting jrujl ttiat fetter out

..- TUESDAY, MAY 6, 1879. v H
OUR FISH IHTERESTS.
Elsewhere, we print two acts of the
last Legislature, designed to foster , and
encou rase our fish interests. - Joe
tions 2, 3 and 4 alluded to m , one., pi
these acts provide,
First, that the county commissioners
inav compel the owners of -dams to
construct the ftsh-ways protided for
and it is indictable hot to erect the fish-
way as ordered by the commissioners, i
Second, that- if any person shall ofc
sVrnct or iniure a fish-way as erected he
is indictable and shall be fined not less
than one hundred dollars and imprison
ed at the discretion of the court
Third, that it is indictable to take any
scaled fish from the South Fork, by
other meaus than hook and line, be
tween the 1st of April and the 10th of
June. . .-!
The object of the law is to prevent
the scaled fish from being destroyed
and to give them free access up the
streams during the spawning season so
that in a year or two we will have fish as
plentiful as they were twenty years ago
and every one can have the pleasure of
catching them and the enjoyment of
eating them and persons higher up the
streams will have the game chance to
catch fish that those lower down have.
The fish commissioner is required oy
law to stock the stream wun young nsn
.... ......... -r-..
and will probably put in the Btreanr this
year a hundred thousand young fish.
The varieties usually selected are shad,
our own trout or chub, and the Califor
nia salmon. This last is a delicious
fish imported from the Pacific cdast
it resemwee a large pise anuuie oeu
is a riefiJ kalmon color. 3t srowi to
weigh twenty pounds in a few years.
Young fish of this - variety were putfin
the Yadkin river two years ago and
several have been caught this year in
the vicinity of Wilkesboro weighing
several pounds. They are more esteem-
eri as a taoie nsn man ine snaa. in tne House to prohibit military inter

decided that the State has the right to J
enact, statutes requiring ?wneriKo I
dams to erect fish;ways and it isSrefl
for our people sto? realize this Jact,
Every State in the ..Uiinbw? has
adopted laws to protect and propagate
fish for the use of the .people and 1n
many places where the fish" were entire
ly destroyed there is new"H great aburir
dance-of them. '
The United States appropriates $25,
000 a year to hatch young fish to supply
the streams of the country.. Our fish
commissioner, s. ti. worth, has plates
of the different kinds of fish ways
use. They are easily constructed anl
are of various designs and are impro'v
ed upon every year. , The United States
government gives $5,000 a, year to per
sons who invent improvements on these
fish ways. J.t U probable CoL Polk;
commissioner of agriculture, woukl
also furnish plans of fish ways to own
ers of dams. The l.tW requires that they
shall be "sufficient for the passage of
fish" and it will be economyas well as
safety to erect a good one in the start
and avoid indictment and the pesityli
of takingout mmefficient one and sulW
stitutmg one as required bylaw.
The wjsdom of ; these, laws vfor that
mnnacrafinn f m;n
soon mmonstrate. tfself. i The fish In
the Catawba are more plentiful how
than they have been for years, owing
to the law of 187&-?77, which was a very
imperfect one, too, and at. first was of,
ten violated. Persons living up tlie
streams will be vigilant to see that
those below, jhall. not ayoidtheilaw
and deprive them of their share of- tnis
delicious food. If the law is enforced
a id there is no reason trv helieve it ini
not. he H.e m,Hi twv k. ..n

A Satisfying REFLEnTiow-i Wren
if we should not succeed in passing the
annrnnri.ti KMio t , , waAU l",
appropriation bills m such form as will
gaarantee me aosoiute rreedom of elec-
tions from military interference, we
have; at least as the Washington corres
pondent of the Richmond State says,
"the comforting reflection" that "a
Democratic Senate and House will
count the electoral vote next timiiid
mav throw out the " vaI at
" r " " kJLCVCS
where the elections have been carried
fcy military interference. This," as the
correspondent says, "may even be made
to extend to elections . tainted by cor
$upt use of the deputy marshals' law."
Henceforth Col. m. T). dni
will have entire control of the editorial
department of the Danville (Va.) Daily
News, to which he has been a contribu
