WELLINGTON, September 30. The Conference sat this afternoon.

Concerning the opening of the shooting season, it was resolved that the season in the North Island extend over May, June, and July, and in the South Island over April, May, June, and July, the societies in the latter to restrict shooting to three or four months according to local circumstances. The Conference expressed the opinion that encouragement should be given for the destruction of stoats, weasels, and ferrets in settled districts, subject to the concurrence, of acclimatisation societies of the districts concerned. It was resolved to ask the Government to make more effective provision respecting the pollution of streams by the discharge of deleterious substances from sheep-dips, fellmongeries, and other works, also that the Government be requested to consider whether rabbit poisoning can be confined to the use of poisons not likely to be taken by game. In regard to riparian rights, it was decided that. in future the Government should arrange, in the caseof resumed estates, that river banks, a chain on each side, should be reserved for the use of anglers, sportsmen, and camping parties, the owner of the land, of course, having access.

It was decided to approach the Government on the question of the introduction of salmon ova, and to recommend that the ova be placed under the control of the Otago Society only; also that financial assistance be granted that society for the maintenance of the salmon.
