or appointed who is not thoroughly fit to perform the duties of game protector. The Adirondacks are entitled to a peculiar share of the Commission's attention, both from the standpoint of forestry, and from the less important, but still very important standpoint of game and fish protection. The men who do duty as game protectors in the Adirondacks should by reference be appointed from the locality itself, and should in all cases be thorough woodsmen. The mere fact that a game protector has to hire a guide to pilot him through the woods is enough to show his unfitness for the position. I want as game protectors men of courage, resolution and hardihood, who can handle the rifle, axe and paddle; who can camp out in summer or winter; who can go on snow-shoes, if necessary; who can go through the woods by day or by night without regard to trails.

I should like full information about all your employes, as to their capacities, as to the labor they perform, as to their distribution from and where they do their work. Very truly yours,
