people are showing an interest in
the matter that might reasonably !
be expected, . the committee that 1

ably hard time in getting samples
for the purpose. The . subject is
one that should awaken the en- I

brought to Mrs, Mary Harris Whit

For Better Development , of Oregon
Big Meeting to be Heid. "
- Ten Corvallisites and their fami
lies, have opportunity to go to'
Portland on half fare rates,, and to
participate while there in the - orJ
eanization of a - ereat societv bv
which it isTioped to bring material
benefit to ; Oregon. The meeting
will last two days, and on the ai
ternoon of the second day the ladies
will be taken by special - car serv
ice to Canemah Park, while the
delegates will be shown around
Portland in a similar way. - The
meeting is to be held, at tbe Mar
quam Grand theatre, for the pur
pose of organizing the Oregon De
velopment League, to be devoted
to tbe furtherance of the material
interests of Oregon connecting all
the interior towns by organization
with each other and with . a head
organization at Portland. '
' The plan was devised by and is
under the management of the Port
land Commercial Club, The meet
ing is to be held on the" first and
second of August. Ten delegates
are to be appointed by each mayor
in the state. , From Corvallis such
persons will be appointed : as will
signify a purpose to attend and par
ticipate in the organization. The
half fare rate, the lowest given by
the railroads in years, shows in
;what respect the proposed organiza
tion is held by the . people anxious
and most deeply interested of all in
the development of the state.
For the Marquam meetings, a
programme is being arranged by
the Portland Commercial Club, at
which there will be full explanation
of the purposes and plans of the
t organization, and opportunity will
pe given au delegates to take part
in the proceedings. A closely knit
Oregon Development League for a
bigger and stronger state, will, if it
materializes be of vast benefit to the
commonwealth and its people.
THEY SHOOT PHEASANTS.
Have Wrong Idea as to the Law What
the Regulations are. ' "
Hunters, according to all ac
counts, are laboring under a false
impression with reference to the
China pheasant law. - As a result
of the many articles published on
the subject a confused idea seems to
have gained credence because ' the
new law that the legislature attempt
ed to pass failed of enactment, that
there is no law whatever' on the
the subjectrand that pheasants -may
be shot at any time. The notion is
however,:, incorrect. The' statute
stands now just as it did before the
legislature attempted the enact
ment of the law. prohibiting killing
entirely for two years. That is to
say, the old law is in full force and
effect, and under it pheasants; can
not be lawfully shot until October
1st. which is the date on which the
sixty days' open season begins.
It is said that in various parts,
laboring under the false impression,
hunters are shooting young pheas
ants freely: The game officers
have heard of the matter, and are
taking steps to begin prosecutions.
This note of warning is sounded in
osder that all may be properly in
formed as to the law.
