LAW !S OPENLY VIOLATED
Senator Fulton Blames Wash
ington Officer;
FAILED TO PUNISH OFFENDERS
Overfishing Has Curtailed Supply of
Hatchery Fish Senator Advocates
8hortenlng,of Open Fishing
Season as a Remedy.
Senator Fulton advocates shortening
the open fishing season on the Columbia
River as a means of Insuring a sufficient
supply of eggs for hatcheries. The blamo
for failure to enforce tho closed season
in the past he lays entirely on the Fish
Commissioner of Washington, who, by
arbitrary suspension of the law of that
state, he says, has made it impossible for
the Oregon Fish Warden to enforce the
law in Oregon.
The Senator declared himself in no un
certain terms yesterday in scoring the
dereliction of the Washington officer. H.
G. Van Diiscn. the Oregon Warden, Mr.
Fulton declares, would have closed the
season up tight after August 15 of this
year, had the Washington Commissioner
co-operated with him to punish offenders.
When the north shore of tho Columbia Is
a nest for the lawbreakers, their depre
datlons cannot be stopped from the south
side, averred Senator Futton, and the re
sult is that the season ordained closed by
law is kept open by persons who have no
respect for the legal power of either
state. The late H. D. McGulre, who was
Oregon's Fish Warden up to nearly six
years ago, and has been esteemed a hlgh-
lv efficient officer. Senator jruiton says.
found It impossible to co-opanate with the
Washington authorities, Just as Mr. Van
Dusen has done.
Senator Fulton accepts tho theory that
overfishing has curtailed tho supply or
hatchery fish as much as any other cause
and perhaps more than any other. He
says that, if salmon were afllowed more
opportunity to reach the hatcheries by
means of a shorter open season, the sup
ply of eggs for those plants would un
doubtedly increase. Preservation of the
industry therefore can be made certain
through enforcement of an adequately
lonjr closed season. Fishing is: now illegal
between March 1 -and April 15 and be
tween August 15 and September 15.
Would Shorten Fishing Season
The lone open season from April 15 to
August 15 Senator Fulton would shorten
so as to open a month, later. That would
allow the early fish, which are tho best
and biggest that enter the river, to pro
ceed to the hatcheries.
"Those early fish," .said he, "arrive. In
small schools and sWlm ueeply. They
are the genuine chlnook, and the most
vlirorous that come to the Coiuxnoia. iney
are the ones that go farthest up the Co
lumbia and its tributaries and the Kina
that reach he Ontario hatchery. At the
season of the year when they are running
in the lower river, the loss to fishing gear
is verv heavy: in fact, fishermen will
agree with me when I say that the loss
is more than tho salmon are worm com
merelallv. I sav that the closed season
should bo continued until the middle of
May. This would enable the hatcheries to
tret more fish and would be the most prac
tlcablo way to ward off the ruin that now
threatens."
Senator Fulton added that the past sea
son was not. more destructive to salmon
than others. Statistics of tho pack show
I to be no larger .than last year's. That
fact and the small catches at the hatch
eries lt?ad to the Inference that the run
of salmon Into tho Columbia was smaller
this year than usual.
States Must Act Together.
Enactment of the closed Sunday Senator
Fulton does not regard as practicable, be
cause of the attitude of the Washington
authorities. Oregon could less enforce a
Sunday law of Its own than the present
closed season, which is common to Doin
states. Close alliance of the two states to
protect the salmon industry Senator ni
ton considers essential and necessary,
Committees of the two Legislatures
should get together this Winter, he says,
to secure common legislation.
"It is not possible." he remarked, 'for
the National Government to assume juris
diction over Columbia River fishing in
terests That could be accomplished only
bv a cession of Jurisdiction by each state,
and in all probability Congress would not
be willing to accept It. The only feasible
wbv for Oregon and Washington to pro
tect this great industry of theirs is by
Joint legislation and Joint enforcement oi
the law."
Fishing Interests Alarmed.
The small supply of eggs at the hatch
erles has alarmed fishing Interests. A to
tal of 100.000.000 eggs was expected at all
the hatcheries this year, but the season
will yield only about 15,000,000. Last year
the number was 70.000,00. It has come to
be tho general opinion that an attempt
will be made this winter in tne uregon
legislature to change the present closed
season, probably so as to shorten it Two
vears ago ilr, van xusen aavocaxeo. auoi

rnrm!t a small number of every school
entering the Columbia to make their way
to the hatcheries. Though the number
would, be small, it would be sufficient,
he says, for t"he perpetuation of the fish.

the Cathedral of As coll, Italy, two years
ago, and later purchased by J. Pieroont

GUARD STILL THERE

in Sheriffs Charge. .
DAMAGE SUIT IN PROSPECT
Complaint Against Word Will Be
..Filed in Justice Setons Court
Today by Attorneys for
M. S. Nease.
The Warwick Club and saloon' on
Fourth street is still In possession of
Sheriff Word. Jasper Fuller, an armed
guard, maintains watch on the Inside, and
the outside doors are strongly bolted.
Judge E. B. Watson, representing M.
S. Neaae. proprietor of tho place, as at
torney, has prepared a complaint In
forcibly entry and detainer case against
the sheriff, which will be filed in -Justice
Seton's court, and will probably be set
for hearing today. Judge Watson says
by this means he will be able to eject the
Sheriff's armed force, and restore the
premises to Nease.
Tho suit of J. N. Fleshman. tho book
keeper in the place, against Sheriff Word
for 110,003 damages, also includes as de
fendants Chief Deputy Sheriff G. .P.
Morden, Jasper Fuller and Deputy Sheriff
John Cordono. Fleshman demands $5000
for alleged unlawful imprisonment of five
hours, and in this connection he avers he
was wrongfully marched through the
streets in- the presence of a large crowd
of persons, and was advertised as guilty
ofa crime, although innocent. He says
he was assaulted and beaten by the offi
cers, and for this asks $5000.
The latter part of his complaint is de
nied by the Sheriff's deputies, who, of
course, admit that they arrested Flesh
man and marched him through the streets.
Sheriff Word says he Is not afraid of
damage suits for performing his sworn
duty under the law. Henry E. McGinn,
his attorney, ridicules the idea, and says
he is willing to pledge himself to pay
any damages ever recovered against the
Sheriff in suits growing out of this raid
or others of a like character.
A. W. Nlemeyer, employed in the pool
room as a telegraph operator, receiving
reports by way of Spokane, Helena and
xenver, threatens to suo tho Sheriff for
damages, and also tho others who were
arrested, namely: J. E. Culllson, M; Dleg-
man, J. Stephens, William Humphreys
and Joe Marshall.
Bornr.lein & Cohen state that they
were consulted yesterday, regarding the
bringing of suits by two of the men who
were arrested. Judge Thomas O Day ad
mlts that he was advised with for the
same reason, and John F. Xogan and
Judge -iL I. Pipes were also consulted.
None of these lawyers has so far closed
an engagement with the poolmen, and It
Is supposed that the question of fees Is
the one thing that stands In the way. The
attorneys, it is said, want cash down and
are not willing to take cases on a con
tlnngency, that is to agree to accept as
a fee a share of what may be recovered
In damages from the Sheriff.
Frank Motter appears as attorney for
Fleshman. Judge Watson is not yet
ready to say if Nease will sue for dam
ages or what legal steps he will pursue.

very srratlfylng to State Chairman
Baker, who has to contend more ear
nestly against the apathy expressed
towards political meetings than against
any indication that the voters will not
be at the doIIs on Tuesaay next.
The State Committee has printed a
second edition of its circular letter to
the voters which will be distributed In
thl3 city and county. The closing par
agraph Is turned Into an appeal to the
voters and business men generally to
get all tho voting population to tho
polls on Tuesday next. It says:
"In concluding this letter to you,
your attention 1b Invited to a joint et
fort that Is being made by the Multno
mah County organization and the State
Committee to obtain the consent of the
business men of Portland to afford their
employes an opportunity next Tuesday
to vote, and to emphasize, if you please,
the importance of their doing so. Some
member of Chairman Boise s commit
tee will call upon you for an expression
regarding your attitude on this ques
tlon. As chairman of the State Organ!
zatlon, may I bespeak for him the favor
of your kmdly -consideration in our en
deavor to get out the vote. .
County Chairman Whitney L. Bolso
Is growing enthusiastic over the sue
cess met by him and his workers In the
effort to bring out the vote of the city
and vicinity. On every hand assurances
are being given that the organization
will meet with hearty support in its
efforts to'show the full Increase of tho
state by tho election returns. Those
employers who have been visited by the
committee have expressed themselves
as heartily in accord with the move
ment and will not only close their
places of business but will make
personal effort to get all of their men
to go to tho polls.
The efforts on the part of the State
Committee towards securing the fullest
possible vote have been" redoubled by
the news received at headquarters from
Seattle that all of the commercial In
terests of the city are united In an ef
fort to bring out the vote regardless of
its kind. Washington Is working for an
increase of 32 per cent and if Oregqn
is able to show the same proportionate
growth the stato will havo to cast 110,
000 votes next week.
It is estimated at the state head
quarters that should Multnomah County
cast 90 per cent of Its registration,
Oregon's total vote will be at least 10
per cent greater than that of Juno last,
and If- that Increase is made, the State
Committee claims a plurality of 30,000,
at the very lowest estimate. W. H. Har
risdn, tho precinct committeeman from
Amity, Yamhill County, voices the son
tlment of State Chairman Baker in
letter written to the latter in which ho
says: "If all the precincts in Oregon do
as well by Roosevelt and Fairbanks as
mine will, your 30,000 will look like
30 cents.

for the rally of Saturday night and

he has heard that it will be tho lare

Seed was not In court at the time, and
