No. 1191. By Mr. Gustin: Resolutions of Alpena Business Men's Association protesting against the passage of House bills Nos. 658 and 659, relating to the fish law. On demand of Mr. Gustin,

The resolutions were read at length and spread at large on the Journal, as follows:

At a meeting of the Alpena Business Men's Association, held on Tuesday, March 9, 1897, resolutions were unanimously passed protesting · against the passage of two certain bills, now pending in the State legislature, which, if crystalized into law, would ruin the fishing interests in this State, bankrupt those now engaged in the business, and impose special hardship upon the people of Alpena and vicinity.

Resolved (1.) That the passage of two certain bills, now pending in the legislature, numbered respectively 658 and 659, one of which is entitled "A bill to require all persons fishing with nets or similar appliances in the waters of this State to obtain a license therefor, and to provide a penalty for using such nets or similar appliances without such license;" and the other entitled “A bill to regulate the catching of fish in the waters of this State, by the use of pound or trap nets, seines and other apparatus," would practically destroy and thereby seriously damage the business interests of Alpena;

(2) That the pasage of the bill imposing the license referred to, would be absolutely prohibitive, as if all kinds of fishing were a crime.

(3) That the passage of the bill to regulate fishing by the use of pound or trap nets, etc., would render it practically impossible to catch fish without violating the law.

(1) That, if the legislature would pass a law, containing one short sentence, absolutely prohibiting the catching of fish in any form, the entire grounds of said bills would be covered and the purpose of their promoters would be accomplished.
