Excerpt from Zoological Society Bulletin, Vol. 17: January, 1914
The Director of the New York Zoological Park has addressed to the Royal Zoological So cietv of Amsterdam (of which he is an hon orarv member) a lengthy memorial, urging that powerful Society to inaugurate a campaign to induce the Dutch Government to at once forbid by imperial decree all exportations of wild birds' plumage from all the islands of the Dutch East Indies. The memorial was submit ted to the council of the Society, and a commit tee was immediately appointed to take steps to secure the end desired. Its first Official act was to cable a request for copies of all the litera ture of the recent struggle in America. And of the resulting law.
If the Netherlands Government should decide to take the action suggested, it. Would electrifv all Europe, and deal a staggering blow to the exterminators Of the various species of birds of-paradise, crown pigeon, and many other species. Stranger things than this have hap pened.
