Side 531 - DEAR SIR: We beg to acknowledge receipt of your favor of the 10th instant, inclosing draft of a paper to be submitted to Congress on merchant marine and fisheries.
Side 82 - First, some hunters are more skilful than others; and, second, some base their estimate on what they know to have been actually killed, while others estimate from the number shot at; that the mother seals, while rearing their young on the Pribilof Islands during the months of July, August, September, and October of each year, leave the islands and go out to sea to feed, returning at intervals to give nourishment to their young.
Side 468 - In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed my seal of office this day of 1
Side 509 - The skins of the female seals are as readily distinguishable, before being dressed and dyed, from the skins of male seals as the skin of a bitch and the skin of a dog, or the skin of any other female animal from that of the male of the same family. The females always have narrower heads than the males, and the breasts afford another ready means of identification of female seals. Fifth. It is equally true that the skins of all the other catches which we had in prior years were readily distinguishable...
Side 539 - ... were practically exterminated, and no seal skins appeared in the market from those localities for many years. That about twenty years ago these islands were again visited, and for five seasons a considerable catch was made, amounting, during the whole five seasons, to about 30,000 or 40,000 skins. Among the skins found in this catch were those of the oldest males and the smallest pups, thus showing, in the judgment of deponent, that every seal of every kind was killed that could be reached. That...
Side 490 - In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my official seal at my office in the City and County of San Francisco the day and year in this certificate first above written. "(Seal) MATTIE G. STIRLING, "Notary Public in and for the City and County of San Francisco, State of California.
Side 508 - That he is a subject of Her Britannic Majesty and is 52 years of age and resides in the city of Brooklyn, in the State of New York. That he is a member of the firm of CM Lampson & Co., of London, and has been a member of said firm for about thirteen years; prior to that time he was in the employ of said firm and took an active part in the management of the business of said firm in London. That the business of 0.
Side 509 - I remember upon one occasion my firm received a consignment of skins from London which bore no marks familiar to us and which skins had not been described to us, and that my brother, who was then at the head of the business, and who is now dead, said, after inspecting the said skins, that they reminded him very much of what were formerly called "south latitude skins...
Side 118 - I could not step among them without stepping on a dead pup. I saw many of them cut open and examined by the doctor (Dr. Ackerly) and their stomachs were empty. All of the dead pups were poor and thin and starved. I believe they all died of starvation, because their mothers had been shot at sea when they went out to feed. I never saw a full fat pup or one who had a mother to feed him dead, except a few that were drowned in the surf. No cow will suckle any pup but her own, and I have often watched...
Side 524 - Williams, in 1888, to the Committee of Congress on Merchant Marine and Fisheries, appears the following: Examination of the earliest records of the fur-seal fishery shows that from the date of man's recognition of the value of the fur the pursuit of the animal bearing it has been unceasing and relentless. Save in the few instances to be noted hereafter, where governments have interposed for the purpose of protecting seal life, having in view benefits to accrue in the future, the animal has been wantonly...
