Operation For Dulocation.
Uitle Helene Story, the B-year old j
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Story,
underwent a serious operation at the:
Cood Samaritan hospital Krlday for
dislocation of the hip. The opera-
turn was successful.
Revising the calendar was as great
tin Issue In Human politics as revising I
the tariff has become in our own, I
and more ttian one brave leader laid
down his life for the division of time
as he thought It ought to be or his
party Had pledged. The Romans dis-
.covered very early in their history Its terrible the way we are dls
j that It is in tho nature of man to re- heartened by example. It matters not
; vise something nnd they finally agreed which way we turn, we always see a
I r pon tho calendar as the thing over, sample of someone like us who as-
! which the politicians could light with
I the least damage to the peace and
1 prosperity of the people as a whole.
The melancholy dav will pass, and !
; spring will come again to freshen up
- iiiu failed grass and wako the hearts
of men. The groundling will awake
iigaln, borne out upon the whole, and
the geese will march across the sky
to see about the pole. The thrill of
spring will run along the backbone of
tlm calf. He 11 buck nml dance upon
the meadow and hoist his hinder half.
He'll dream of blooming clover fields
nnd waving curly dock, and gambol
with his rigid tall stuck up at 6
1 The blithesome nmadowlnrk will
; sing tho glories of Mm dawn, and the
' robin will turn somersets upon the
j greening lawn. The spring-lntoxlca-i
tod colt will do-sl-do about, the fos
i tlve frog will wake to help the YsVath
1 or Huron u out, the poor consumer will
I rejoice ami nope tor in ner hick, ntlil
the trusts will sit around and dam the
coming garden truck.
on the 4th Mr. Taft will celebrate
his first nnnlversni-v In the white
settled political conditions, the Ual-llnger-Plnehot
controversy and some
other things, he feels that as long as
on tho consumer, allusions to June

Krlday, March 4, for the benefit of the

more urgent need, however, is for a

be done with the present small num

MULTNOMAH COURT DENIES THE
RIGHT OF LOCAL MEN TO
APPEAL WILL BE TAKEN
Willamette and Clackamas Rivers
Shut From March 1 to May 1
By Order of State Fish
Fishermen cannot take salmon from
the Willamette River and tributaries
between March 1 and May 1, without
violating the Oregon stale law, and
laying themselves liable to arrest.
This was the decision of Presiding
Circuit Judge Morrow In refusing to
grant to the Portland Fish Company
a temporary restraining order res
training H. C. McAllister, master fish
warden, or other officers, from arres
ting the fishermen.
This decision places the Columbia
River fishermen and those of the Wil
lamette and Clackamas rivers upon
the same footing. A restraining order
would have allowed the Oregon City
fishermen to use their salmon-fishing
gear at will between March 1 and 13,
and April 13 and May 1. An old Ore
gon statute prohibits salmon-fishing
on the Willamette and Clackamas riv
ers between March 13 and April 13.
Attorney Isham N. Smith, repre
senting the Portland Fish Company
and 33 Oregon City fishermen, who
sued Governor Benson, State Treas
urer Steel and Fish Warden McAllis
ter, members of the fish commission,
for the restraining order, argued to
the cnurt that his clients have inves
ted 173.000 in fishing paraphernalia.
He said much loss would be caused
them, and a manifest Injustice done.
If they were compelled to desist from
fishing for a month.
The law prohibits' the catching of
salmon and does not prevent catching
other fish. Mr. Smith urged that a
man could not tell what kind of a fish
might get into his net, and that be
might be arrested for catching a sal
mon when he was fishing for some
thing else. He said this time Is not
required for the propogatlon of th!
fish, that salmon spawn In July,
August and September.
It ha. always been the custom, he
said, to fish at this time of year for
salmon, and that custom gives the
fishermen a rested right not to be
Interfered with by an order of this
kind, ire Insisted also that the or
der of the commissioners Is not bind
ing because the board exercised a
judicial function. He argued further
that the order of the commissioners
does not state the time for reopening
the Btreams to salmon fishing, and
that the regular time for the posting
of notices must elapse before the
streams can be reopened.
Members of the local fishermen's
association stated that In view of the
refusal of Circuit Judge Morrow to
issue art injunction no overt act will
be attempted and there will be no ef
fort made to violate the order of the
State Board of Fish Commissioners.
The case will be appealed to the Su
APPERSON SUIT MAY
BE DISMISSED SOON
POSSIBILITY OF GRADE BEING
ALTERED TO MEET PROPERTY
There is a possibility that the suit
of Captain John T. Apperson, of Park
place, to restrain the city from pro
ceeding with the Improvement of
Eleventh street will be dismissed. It
is understood that City Engineer Mel
drum Is planning to make a detailed
examination of the grade, with a view
to its alteration, and if this is done
to the satisfaction of Captain Apper
son, he will at once withdraw his ob
jections to the Improvement. Captain
Apperson is the owner of a block of
ground on Eleventh street and he ob
jected to the improvement on the
ground that the grade was not suit
able, and that his assessment would
be confiscatory, stating also that the
city had not given proper notice of
the improvement. He obtained a tem
porary restraining order last fail from
Circuit Judge Eakln, who dissolved
the injunction upon the final hearing,
and a few weeks ago Captain Apper
son gave notice that he would file an
appeal to the Supreme Court. The
Eleventh street property owners have
hopes that the matter will be adjusted
and the suit dismissed.
