Excerpt from The Fish and Game Attractions of the Dominion of Canada

The rapid advance of civilization and the onward march of settlement throughout the more easily accessible portions of the North American continent have encompassed the de struction of much of the game in districts that were formerly renowned as hunting territories, and of the fish that made famous many lakes and rivers that now possess little or no attraction' for the angler. The buffalo - the noblest big game of the New World - which, but a few de cades since roamed the Western' prairies in countless thousands, is now all but an extinct variety and much of the former fish wealth of the Hudson, the Connecticut and almost all the more northerly of °american streams owing directly into the Atlantic ocean, which had survived the supposed destructiveness of the aboriginal inhabitants, could not long endure the higher civilization of the Pilgrim Fathers and their descendants, so that the salmon of the New England streams have gone the way that was to be later followed by the American bison.
