SALT2ir. Or.. Feb. 25. (Special.)
More than two dozen game bills were
Introduced at the recent session of the
Legislature, but only nine of them be
came laws. ?Cone of them carry emer
gency clauses, and will go into effect
Comparatively few changes were made
In the regulations regarding closed sea
Eons, but the most important acts were
the prohibition of the sale of game, the
establishment of the hunter's license and
the prevention of the hunting of deer at
night or with. dogs. The number of deer
that may be- killed In a season Is limited
The purpose of the act prohibiting the
sale of game Is to limit in some degree,
the number of birds killed. The hunters'
license law is intended to restrict hunt
ing to some extent, but more especially
to compel the sportsmen to contribute
toward the payment of the expense of en
forcing the game-protection laws. If the
license bill had passed In the sweeping
Voim In which it was introduced, it would
have produced considerable revenue, for
it required every hunter to pay a fee of
$1 per year.
Representatives from the farming
counties' would not support the bill in
that form, however, and the law was
amended so as to except a man and mem
bers of his family hunting on their own
land. This means that practically all
the license money will come from city
sportsmen. The law says nothing as to
the rights of men living on farms which
they occupy as lessees, and a strict in
terpretation of the law will evidently be
that when a city man owns a farm and
rents It. as many do, the city man may
hunt thereon without a license, while the
farmer must pay the license fee before
he or members of his family can hunt.
Provisions of License Law.
The hunters' license law, known as
Senate bill 269, makes It unlawful for
any person to hunt for. tako or kill any
game animals protected by the laws of
this state, during the open season, with
out such person having in his personal
possession at the time of said hunting, a
license issued to him Dy a County Clerk.
A license must be issued to any person
who applies therefor and who pays a fee
of 11 if he be a resident of the state, and
SlO-if he be a nonresident. All licenses
oxplre on December 31, regardless of the
date of issue. Not icore than one li
cense can bo issued to the same person
Jn any year, and the license shall not be
transferable. The license must give the
name and residence of the person to
whom Issued, and a brief description of
him, for the purpose of identification.
A license issued in any county Is good
anywhere in the state, but is subject to
inspection at all times by any peace offi
cer or person charged with the enforce
ment of the game laws, or by the owner
of property upon which the person may
Fees collected under this act must be
transmitted to the State Treasurer, and
by him placed to the credit of the game
protection fund. Hunting without having
in possession a valid license is punishable
by fine of J25 to $100. or Imprisonment Ave
to 30 days, or by both fine and imprison

The act prohibiting the sale of game
was Senate bill 77, and applies to deer
as well as to birds. It reads as follows:

Season for Ducks and Geese.
The cloeed season for ducks and geese
will hereafter begin February 1, instead
of March 1. and the law has been changed
In several respects by the passage of Sen
ate bill 55, amending section 2014 of the
code. By this act, tho killing or posses
sion of any wild goose, wild swan, mallard
duck, wood duck, widgeon, teal, spoonbill,
gray, black sprlgtail or canvasback, or
any duck. Is forbidden between February
1 and September 1, and during the open
reason not more than 50 ducks can be
killed by one person -In a week.
It is made unlawful to kill any wild
goose on any isiand or sandbar n or
along the Columbia River cast of the Cas
cade Mountains, on which wild geese ha
bitually rest or roost.
An exception 1b made In this section as
to Coos and Lake Counties. In Coos tho
closed season for the fowls mentioned Is
to extend from February 1 to August 1.
and In Lake from April 1 to August 15.
Otherwise this act applies to Coos and
An Eastern Oregon Law.
The closed season for sagehens, sage
cocks, grouse, quail and Mongolian pheas
ants was fixed by the passage of Senate
bill 25, amending section 2021 of the code.
This act makes It unlawful at any time
to kill or have in possession, except for
scientific or breeding purposes, any pheas
ant except native pheasants. The act
thon prohibits the killing or possession or
sale of sagehens, sagecocks, grouse or na
tive pheasants, except for scientific or
breeding purposes, between December 1
of each year and August 15 of the follow-
Ing year. Hunting or sale of quail la for
bidden at any time except between the
second Saturday and the third Tuesday of
September each year, and the number of
quails that may be killed during such open
eeason i4imltd$o six, ki-&-da,..or-12 In,
a week. Hunting or possession of ring
neck, Mongolian or Chinese pheasants,
except for scientific or breeding purposes,
is forbidden until February 15, 1S10, and
after that time these birds may be taken
only between September 15 and Decem
Prairie chickens, which are found
only In Eastern Oregon, are given pro
tection In all Oregon except Wasco
and Umatilla Counties until September
15, 1309, after which time they can be
taken only from September 15 to No
vember 15, except In "Wasco and Uma
tilla Counties, where they may be
killed at all seasons. This law Is Sen
ate bill 28, amending section 2022 of
No Hunting Deer at Night.
By House bill 139, amending section
2010 bf the code, deer are given protec
tion from hunters as follows:
Killing of .buck deer except in Baker,
Grant, Harney and Malheur, forbidden
except from August 15 to November 1.
Killing of female deer, except in Baker,
Grant, Harney and Malheur, forbidden
except from September 1 to November

bidden between one hour after sunset
and one-half hour before sunrise, and
at any time with dogs. The number of
deer that may be killed by any person
in one open season Is limited to five
and the sale or exchange of deer is for
bidden. No Closed Season for Black Bass.
Taking of black bass has heretofore
been permitted only during the months
of June, July, August and September,
but the close season has now been ab
rogated and black bass may be taken
at any time of the year. Persons who
are informed upon tho subject say that
black bass have become so numerous
that there is no longer need of a closed
season, and It has been asserted by
some that these fish prey upon young
salmon and are an enemy to the salmon
industry. Catching black bass in Wil
lamette Valley streams is becoming
more common each year as a sport.
Fishing for trout or cut-throat trout
in Rogue River, at any time of the year
in any manner except with hook and
line, is made a misdemeanor punishable
by fine of $50 to $100.
New Law for Deputy Game Wardens.
In order to give tho Game and For
estry Warden moro power In the ap
pointment of special deputies, the law
upon that subject was amended by the
last Legislature. Section 2052" of the
code was amended so as to remove the
limitation placed upon the number of
special deputies and the total amount
of compensation. That section pro
vided for six deputies at $2 a day for
actual time served, not exceeding $250
In a year for each, or $2500 a year for
all. The act of this Legislature per
mits the Game and Forestry Warden
to appoint any number of deputies at
$2 per day and expenses, but the total
expenditures must not exceed the total
amount of the appropriation added to
the amount derived from hunters'
licenses. The new law also leaves out
that portion of section 2052 which au
thorizes the Warden to appoint three
deputies in each county without com
pensation. In the past the deputies
thus appointed depended for compensa
tion upon the allowance of one-half the
amount of fines collected.
The biennial appropriation for the
Game and Forestry Warden and depu
ties Is $S400, of which $2400 pays the
Warden's salary, leaving $6000 for tho
Warden's expenses and the salaries and
expenses of deputies. To this appro
priation will hereafter be added the
license fees, the amount of which can
not yet be even approximately estimated.

FLOUR BRINGS $100 A SACK
Starvation Is Feared, as Staples Are
Scarce at Any Price, and Many
People Cannot Escape
to the Coast.
BELLINGHAM. Wash., Feb. 25. (Spe
cial.) Late advices received from his
brother by George Wynn, of this ctly,
from Fairbanks, Alaska, say that the
residents of the principal points In the
Tanana mining district may confront
starvation before the opening of Spring.
The letter from Fairbanks states that
provisions are becoming ecarce, prices are
rapidly advancing, and are now above the
highest figure ever Known in tho district.
"There aro between 4000 and 5000 people
wintering at Fairbanks," the letter says,
"and money has been plentiful, but pro
visions have maintained a high price.
With another advance In prices conditions
have grown serious. Flour has advanced
to 52 a pound, or 5100 a sack, and it Is al
most impossible to secure some of the
staples at any price."
Several small parties have left Fair
banks in an effort to reach Seward, from
which point navigation le open to the"
Sound, and others are preparing to take
the same course. There Is more sickness
at Fairbanks at this time than has been
known before, and there Is a big number
of people who are unable to undertake a
journey to the coast under the present
"There le little being done at present,
the weather being such as to prevent
working to advantage, and the prin
cipal occupation is gambling and
drinking." continues the writer. "The
town Is simply a nest of sa
loon?, and in every saloon gambling Is
running wide open, with no limit. The
saloons are doing an Immense business,
and gamblers and bartenders receive from
$20 to ?25 for a day's work."

Interesting Experiment In a Restaurant.
An advertising agent, representing a
prominent New York magazine, while on
a recent Western trip, was dining one
evening in a Pittsburg restaurant.
While waiting for his order he glanced
over his newspaper and noticed the ad
vertisement of a well-known dyspepsia
preparation. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets. As ho himself was a regular user
of the tablets, ho began speculating as
to how many ot the other traveling men
In tho dining-room were also friends of
the popular remedy for Indigestion.
He says: I counted 23 men at the
tables and In the hotel office I took the
trouble to Interview them and was sur
prised to learn that nine of. the 23 made
a practice of taking one or two of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal.
One of them told mo he had suffered so
much from stomach trouble that at one
timo he had been obliged to quit tho
road, but since using Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets had been entirely free from In
digestion, but he continued their use. es
pecially while traveling, on account of
Irregularity in meals and because like all
traveling men he was often obliged to
cat what ho could get and not always
what ho wanted.
Another, who looked the picture of
health, said ho never ate a meal without
taking a Stuart Tablet Afterward because
he could eat what he pleased and when
he pleased without fear of a slceploss
night or any other trouble.
Still another used them because he was
subject to gas on stomach, causing pres
sure dn heart and lungs.' shortness of
breath and distress In chest, which he no
longer experienced since using the tab
Another clalnjcd that Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets was the only safe remedy he
had ever found for sour stomach and
acidity. He had formerly used common
soda to relieve the trouble, but the tab
lets were much better and safer to use.
After smoking or drinking or other ex
"cesses which weaken the digestive or
gans, nothing restores the stomach to a
healthy, wholesome condition so effectu
ally as- Stuart's Tablets.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain the
