The recent wholeeale .robberiea of
chicken rooata In Twilight, Mount
Pleasant and Maple Lane have atlr
red the farmera to action and a Poul
try Ral8era Protective Association
will be organised at once. It Is
thought that at least 300 ralaera will
become charter , membera and that
the organization will apread to other
parts of the county.
The first meeting will be held early
this week In the Mount Pleaaant
school house, and action will be taken
at once to put en end to the stealing
of chlckena. Large rewards will be
offered for the arrtt of the thieves.
Each member of the association will
wear a button showing that he is a
member, and signs giving the inform
ation that the ownera are members
of the association will be placed on
all the chicken houses. It Is thought
the announcement that rewards will
be offered for the arrest of the
thlevea will prevent robberies. The
association was suggested by M. J.
Laxelle, and thoae taking an active
part In Its organization are Ward
Lawton, of Mount Pleasant, and Mr.
Myer. of Maple Lane. The latter's
chicken roost was recently robbed of
forty fine hens. The association will
be known as The Clackamas County
Poultry Ralslrs' Association.

Jones, who also Is an Indian. The

the few filed In the state in which
Indians ..are the principals. MYs.
Jones alleges that her husband drank
to excess and finally abandoned her
on November 25, 1904, while they
were living at Ballard, Wash. The
marriage attracted a great deal of in

HEDGES TELLS OF
TREES IN EAST
LAWYER SAYS THEY ARE PRE
SERVED EVEN TO RETARD
ING OF TRAFFIC.
MANY FINE SPECIMENS IN STREETS
Publlo As Well As Lot Owner Has
Interest In Shade Trees
And They Should Be
Tbe Morning Enterprise U in re
ceipt of an Interesting communication
from Joseph E. Hedges regarding
ahade trees. Mr. Hedges represented
Mrs. Nellie Walker In her success
ful fight to save a Urge tree at her
Home. The letter follows:
"Since It Is determined that the
case w walMr-viroregonrTttr erax;
which lnvolvea the queatlon whether
thla city or Its council haa a tight
to destroy a shade tree that stands
on the parking between the aldewalk
and the curb, will not be appealed,
I feel at liberty to say to you some
things that I learned by observation
on my trp through New York and
New England a few weeks ago.
"Tha object of my trio waa to be
In New Haven. Conn., during the re
union of my class at Yale. So- that
I was in that city longer than In any
other during my trip. New Haven
haa, I believe, more shade treea pro
portionately to its area than any oth
er city I have ever visited or been In.
It Is called the 'City of Elms.' I Judge
it has fifty miles of streets, on both
sides of which are large treea gen
erally elma. In the central portion
especially many of the trees are
either wholly on the sidewalk or part
ly on the sidewalk or In the street
beyond the , curb. And all of the
trees are carefully guarded and none
Is permitted to destroy or even In
"I found the same condition on one
side of Fifth avenue. New York, and
on one aide of Eighth avenue. New
York, and In portions of Boston. In
Haverhill, Mass., the same care Is
given to the trees as In New Haven.
So it is In Newburyport, Mass. In
deed tbe cities generally throughout
New England build their walka and
the curbs around their ahade trees,
the beautlflera . of their . cities., and
preserve them even to the Incon
venience to an extent, of the pedes
trians or drivers of vehicles.
"I have brought home with me
some photographs and other pictures
showing the conditions I have
told you of, and amongst these is one
of the home for many years and tbe
place of death of the poet, Whlttler,
in Amesbyry, Mass. I waa at his
home and found In front of the prop
erty a large tree which atands about
In the center of the walk which ex
lends from the lot line to the curb.
"I feel tbe public, as well aa the
lot owner, has an Interest In the
ahade trees; and I hope enough In
terest will be manifested In the mat
ter to demonstrate the existence of
a strong sentiment in favor of the
growing and preservation of these
shade trees which adorn the city and
that It takes so many years to create
or grow." "
Beggar Given Jail Sentence.
William Duncan waa aentenced to
15 days In Jail by Recorder Stlpp.
Duncan was arrested for Intoxication
and begging by Policeman Cook.

The absolute need of a new and
adequate armory has brought the of
ficers snd men of Company G, of
the O. N. 0 to the aid of tbe Naval
Militia. Company G having their full
complement and with the new or

will be much easier to get because
the need will be more readily noticed.
All men between the ages of 18
