RELIEF DENIED FARMERS
RECOMPENSE FOR DAMAGE BY
BEAVERS OT COLLECTIBLE.
Attorney-tieneral Says That Woodburn
Fruitgrowers Hare Xo Case
SALEM, Or., Feb. 18. (Special.)'
Farmers living near Woodburn who
have sustained extensive damage to
their orchards through the depredations
of beavers, are not entitled to recover
damages from the state, the game
warden or the members of the Fish and
Game Commission, according to an
opinion by Attorney-General Brown to
day. As a result of the damage caused by
beavers te fruit trees, residents near
Woodburn who have suffered com
plained to the Governor's office for re
lief. E. P. Morcora, acting for the in
jured farmers, in a letter to the exec
utive's office, intimated that an at
tempt might be made to fix the liability
for the damage caused by beavers upon
the game warden.
Under the Oregon law, beavers which
damage property may be killed by the
property owner after permission is ob
tained from the state game warden.
The law also provides that damages
sustained from the beavers' operations
may be paid from money which may
be realized from the sale of the beavers'
fur after they are killed or captured.
The Attorney-General says that the
only way in which the state game war
den or the Board of Fish and Game
Commissioners could be held responsi
ble for the damage done by beavers,
would be - by the abuse of their dis
cretion in refusing permission to kill
the -beavers causing damage.

BALL IN NEW YORK GUARDED
Detectives Protect Knights of Co
lumbus From Anarchists.
NEW YORK, Feb. 18. Extraordinary
precautions were taken by the police
tonight to protect the members at the
Knights of Columbus ball at Madison
Square Garden from possible attack by
anarchists. Letters purporting to
have been written by Jean Crones, the
fugitive Chicago chef suspected of hav
ing poisoned the soup which was served
at the banquet in honor of Archbishop
Mundelein, have contained threats
which led to the fear that some attempt
might be made on the lives of those
who attended the dance.
More than three score officers In
plain clothes mingled with the guests.
t,.. wr sfntinned on each fire
escape of the building and every door
was carefully guaraea. ueieciivw
worked as cooks, waiters and dish
washers to spy on the other workers.
Guards also were thrown around
police headquarters in the hope that
Crones might make another of the
visits boasted about by the writer of
the letters signed with his name. De
tectives secreted themselves in dark
ened doorways across the streets on all
airlfis nf the building. Others scruti
nized carefully every person who ap
proached. $1 TOOTH. BRINGS $5000

and went to the White Haven Sana
