ONE BIG FISH THAT
DIDN’T GET AWAY
Those who passed by the Phoenix
Pharmacy on Foster Roan at Kent
Park Monday, were likely to believe,
as the Herald man at And did. thai
John R. leach had entered the fish
business. Reposing in the show win
dow was one of the nicest looking
salmon the Herald man has seen in
a long while. Upon inquiry it proved
to have been the catch of C. H. Buck-
ley of the 67th street fire station
Mr. Buckley captured the big Chi
nook m the Willamette Sunday while
angling near Jennings l odge. It
was his fourth of the season and
was taken with light tackle.
dentally, Mr. Buckley used a No. 6
brass spinner, purchased from C. A.
Norwood of 5907 Fester Rood. Some
one asked the lucky disciple of Isaak
Walton how he knew when he had
the fish hooked. "Well. when mv
boat started up the river in tow of
whatever was at the end of the line
I suspected something was on the
end of the line,” Mr. Buckley said.
The fish weighed 42 S pounds, not
the largest ever tsdien from the river
but a beauty just the same
The firemen of Station 31 are all
great anglers and have made some
good catcher this season. Joe Pan
ford is high line of the crew, with a
total of ten fish to his credit. Every
man at the station has landed at
least one fish this year, it is said.

GUN PLAY IN CARD GAME
_RESULTS IN THREE ARRESTS
Police officials are inclined to
frown on the wild and wooly west
method of settling disputes over card
games with a “gat” and as a result
T. X. Johnson, H. J. Murphy and
John Thornton were sent to the city
jail late last week on a charge of be
ig drunk and disorderly.
The three men were playing cards
in a house on Foster Road near Kern
Park when Johnson decided he was
getting the worst of it. He left and
shortly after reappeared with a shot
gun, which it is said he discharged in
the air to intimidate his opponents
The plan failed. Instead they al!
rushed him and a free-for-all fight
started, in which Johnson got the
worst of it.
The police inspectors
gave the trio a free ride to the jail

THE HYGIENIC MARRIAGE BILL
Dr. Owens-Adair writes to the
Herald in advocacy of the hygienic
marriage license bill which will be
submitted to the voters at the next
election, in June.
Briefly, the bill
requires applicants for marriage li
censes. male and female alike, to
submit to and pass an examination
as to health, communicable diseases
and mentality, and in case of failure
to pass, prohibits such marriages
unless one or loth applies its are

of the bill is laudable; it seeks to
reduce the number of criminals, dis

Mil would accomplish the aim sought
to be attained there couldn’t be much
said logically against it.

however, regulating marriage and
divorce, any steps we may take along
