the one now in use, was abandoned
early In June because . of complaints
l'rom residents living beyond it that

At that time the Twenty-first United
States Infuntry, stationed at Van
couver, was using the range. The Third
Battalion, under Captain Ralph H. Van
reman, practiced In May, and com
plaints were made that bullets bounded
out of the range limits. Later, how
ever, when the Third Battalion under
Major Wilson Chase went out to shoot,
complaints grew so loud that Colonel
George S. Young, in command of the
regiment, ordered his troops back to

clear the hill and timber.
To make the range even more safe.
terraces are to be cut in the hillside
behind the targets this Winter.
On two days at the shoot last week
some shooting was done on the old
range. Complaints instantly followed,
and posttlve orders were given that
there be no more firing except. on the
new target line.

wheel on the Columbia River, located
on Section 36, Township 2, Range 3
East, which land is state property.
According to Information received by
the Attorney-General, Seufert Broth

prevented Williams from operating his
Deputy District Attorney Johnson
wrote letters to D. M. Carr. superin
tendent of the North Takima Indian
reservation, asking for further facts
In the case, and to Seufert Brothers,
warning them not to interfere, if they
are interfering, with Williams in the
operation of his wheel.
Indians are given the right to fish
and hunt on their, own reservations,
and outside :of - them - have, the . same
rights as white, men -under the fish and
game laws ' -
Therefore, the District Attorney's of

be interfered w-ith in so doing.

when what she wanted was a mortgage
on lot 8 In the same block. Lot 8. it
is said. Is improved with a valuable
honse, while lot 7 is bare and not
worth nearly the amount loaned.

by the insurance company for its rec
ords and that they differ, as charged.

to have been made by Mrs. Geren that
everything had been paid and that no
labor or material liens could accrue
against the house. " In this affidavit.

plication for a loan filed with a local

spoken of, but no mertion is made of

tend that it was by mistake of Beach,
Simon & Nelson, Mrs. Flynn's attorneys,
that lot 7 was Inserted in the mort
gage instead of lot 8. J. V. Beach,
who is now at Turner. Or., has been
subpenaed to appear before the grand
