He visits the mill where many men are at work. He stands around tin? mill property for a d.ty or two and watches the progress. He perhaps has some thiiiK to sell and is endeavoring to krct a line on some of the em ployed of the mill ho that he can make a sale to them. As he watches he becomes more fa miliar with the men and the work. He enjoys seeing the large timliers dump over the d ick and make the water of the Columbia Uiver splash-high in the air. All this is interesting' to him as he is sizing up the situation w ith a view to doing some business anions the men whereby he can make some money out of them. Hut aias. the interested spectator hecomes too familiar; be undertakes to ingratiate himself into the con fidences of the workmen so that he w ill Ih? in a better position to do business with them at the proper time. He sees the men toilinir at their work, which is .mill, hnnl tiM at times, so he l..mU n helninir hand. The boards creak and the men fa miliar with the conditions of hnndlintr timber and trucks pret out of the way of danger, while the real estate man. entirely out of his sphere, stands there until the timber falls upon and breaks his lejr. Now this man, who was a spectator there and of his own accord, who took hold of the timliers when he was not asked and when he had no business tn nnd who did not know enoujfh about the condition of handling i,.wr nn.l henvv timbers to keen out of the way w hen dan ier threatened, is askintf the ,.,.,irta tn miv that the mill com ft finis us hn owned the dock should pay him the enormous sum of $.).(KH) for his own ncKli'nce and carelessness.

That some Kamc laws and some tfaine protection is necissery is ad mitted by all, hut when laws are enacted for the sole purpose of allow iriK a few city hportsmen to have a Rood time and those law s seem to work a hardship on the actual residents of the outside counties, it is time something was beinn done. The idea of protecting the streams of Col umbia County for a few dozen sportsmen of the City of l'ort and is ridiculous. And that is just what has been done. So numerous has the numler of this species of sportsmen, perhaps more uroperly called sports, be come that it is almost impossible for a resident of' this county to iret a mess of trout in any of the streams, because every Sunday those same sports are down here whippinKOUt the streams until there is nothing left. Other in stances need not be cited. With the present muddle, caused by these citv snorts, as a starter, it would be a jfood idea for the next lenislature to revise the game laws so that the counties could and would be made the unit in- i m. 1 ..
