livered the principal address, Bpeaking

great practical commercial results may
be attained by closer friendship and
knowledge of individual wishes and de
sires. Commissioner H. E. DoBch
ppoke on Oregon's relationship to . South
Carolina in a manner which brought
forth great applause. His tribute to the
city of Charleston, and words of thanks
for the hospitality extended Oregon peo
ple, were pleasingly presented. Albert
Tozier spoke of Oregon's advancement,
her resources, enterprises and possibil
ities, explaining the way the northwest
was to have a great expotition in 1895,
and that its success was assumed. Mr.
Tozier's subject, "Lewis and Clark Cen

his remarks were received with much

Buffalo Bill is Coming.
The announcement is made that Buf
falo Bill's Wild West, led by Col. VV. F.
Cody himself, will this season, and for
the first time in its history, make a com
plete tour of the American continent
from ocean to ocean, East to West; from
the Zenith City in the north to the Gnlt
of Mexico in the south. This itinerary
will take the great organization through
much of the territny where its wild
scenes are laid, and for that matter bring
to their very birthplace the incidents it
has so aptly illustrated in other parts of
the world. A trip to the Pacific Coast
has long been contemplated aud now
that Messrs. Cody and Salabury have
concluded to go to Europe again this fall,
they have determined to pay a parting
salute of respect to America and will, as
stated, cover the entire country this sea
son. Have We a Game Law?
If Mr. Quimby was in the vicinity of
what is known bp High H ill, two or three
miles south of Wilhoit, he would surely
say there is no law to prohibit the chas
ing of deer wnh hounds. Thin I almost
an every day occurrence, especially on
Sunday. Hounds are kept at a logging
c mp near the junction of Coal and
Butte Creeks and are allowed t . run at
large. The consequences are they are
chasing deer nearly every day, as there
are quite a number of deer in that vi-,
ciniiy. Now, any person acquainted
with the habits of the deer knows that
it is the femalo and not the male deer
that comes down in the foothills in
fawning time, which has commenced, or
will soon. No one can fail to ste the
damage done by hounding at this time
of the year, more so than any other part
of the season.
A few days ago a well-known man of
this place happened along Butte Creek
in the vicinity of the above mentioned
camp and saw a deer standing in the
stream, and he was tempted to shoot it,
but passed on and called at a neighbor's
house, where he was informed that the
boys of the camp had gone out to chase
some deer. This put a new desire in the
man to kill the (leer, and returning to
the same place (he having been gone
about an hour), found the poor exhaust
ed animal still standing in the same
place and killed it. It had been chased
by the hounds likely for several hours
till it had eluded them and was trying
to get a little rest. Now, if we have a
law prohibiting the chasing of deer with
hounds, we should have some of it in the
vicinity of Wilhoit. If Mr. Quimby has
not received donation enough from the
state to send out deputies enough to
watch our game, why cau't the county
send someone to li.vestigate places
where needed, and we hope, it will in
the near future. T. C. E.
A Beries which should have been
named "The Enchantment of our Mod
ern Aladdins," if considered solely from
the point of view of romance, is begun
in the May Cosmopolitan. But these
sketches possess as well a business inter

manufacturer, farmer and merchant.
The man who would understand the
drift of our news in finance and busi
ness must read these lives, so full of in
cident, of chance, of hard labor and
marvelous success. As it is, the series
receives only the common-place name
of "Captains of Industry:" Each char
acter is treated by a noted writer famil
iar with his subject.
The May number of Everybody's
Magazine opens with a most interesting
article by Dr. Henry Gannett on "Fa
mous American Mountains," superbly
illustrated with photographs of the nota
ble peaks of the Rockies, the Sierras
and the Alaskan Range. Etpecially
timely is T. P. O'Connor's estimate of
Cecil Rhodes the "Napoleon of South
Africa." It is a skillful character study,
representing the curious admixture of
traits which make Mr. Rhodes the
great personality of his period. Another
valuable contribution is Dr. II. W. Wi
ley's "Man as a Machine," in which
the functions of the human body are
compared with mechanical process.
