Game Warden Finley made a report
to the Multnomah Anglers' Club Friday
night, showing that 6,847,546 trout fry,
and 1.400,000 black bass, croppies and
catfish, were released In the waters of
the state this year, excepting 400,000
trout fry to be placed within the next
two weeks. '
Of the trout fry, rainbow, b(ack
spotted or cutthroat, Eastern brook and,
steelhead, 1,436,681 were hatched at the'
Clackamas and Cazadero hatcheries of
the United States Government, and
planted by Henry O'Mnlley, Government
superintendent. The others, 4,411,865,
were handled by the Game Warden's
office, which also paid for the work on
the fish planted by the Government
officials. r "

son, welcoming the first fishes to their
waters. Next season Mr. Finley plans
to take care of several hundred other
lakes which have never been planted.
The meeting of the Anglers' Club was
an enthusiastic one, nearly 200 mem
bers being present, with JO new mem
bers received. In addition to the re
port from the State Game Warden,
W. F. Backus made a report on the
condition of the mouth of the Sandy
River, with the work accomplished, and

tion of trout were passed.
Prohibitory Law Crged.
The prohibition of the sale of all
game fish In the state, which would
include the salmon trout, bass ana
croppies, ws recommended by the club
In a resolution passed unanimously. The
present law permits the sale of salmon
trout, and indirectly the sale of other
species In the guise of salmon trout.
Bass and croppies are not protected.
No definite conclusion was reached
regarding the 12-inch limit on salmon
trout during the closed season for
other trout, but an effort will be made
to have this written into the Oregon
game laws. The Increasing of ths size
of fish net meshes, protecting the
smaller fish, was also advocated by the
W. F. Backus reported that 680
pounds of powder had been used ' in
blasting logs and sand from the mouth

31. O. WiUdne Wlta City Jail Case Is

Circuit Judge Morrow yesterday post

writ of mandamus requested by Attor
ney M. O. Wilklns as a means of forc

youth who pleaded guilty to larceny.
Wilklns secured the case through a
trusty In the City Jail after the plea
had been made and Judge Tazwell re
fused to recognise him. In Municipal
Court Mr. Wilklns again sought to force
his recognition by the court, and again
was refused. The sentencing of Cross
had been postponed till yesterday, but
when It came up. Wilklns was present
and sought to address the court. I&
noring him, the court asked the Dis
trict Attorney for a recommendation,
which was made to the effect that ths
sentence again, be postponed till Tues
day. "W1U the court Indicate at this time
whether my appearance will be al
lowed?" asked Wilklns.
"The matter Is olosed until next
Tuesday," said the court.
"Will the court Indicate at this time
what Its action will be then"
"The case Is closed for the present."
replied the judge, with rising firmness.

Aotlnar apparently on the idea that
W. I Cosper, superintendent of the Na

such as "singing, cold baths, cleanli

thrown In with the others as an ap

football games, although Mr. Cosper
says he cannot recommend any such
violent lung exercise in the treatment

"Horses. I believe, do not have tuber

because thev are colder-blooded, and
the warts on their legs might cast off
impurity. Then, they generally run and
snort mors than oattle," whose cases
are attended to with scientific neat
ness and precision in the concluding
paragraph, which says:
"Cattle, that is, milk cows that are
shut up In a stable artificially heated,
overfed and under-exercised, have tu
berculosis, while cattle' that run out
on the sunny hillside eating green grass
are not troubled with it."
"There, said Mr. Cosper, as he fin
ished reading the letter, "you have the
reason, with no other explanation nec
essary, for this work. We are trying
to make the knowledge common as to
what causes tuberculosis and how It
should be treated, and this letter shows
how sadly many people lack that
knowledge. How sadly they suffer for
lack of the simplest rules of procedure
every nurse and physician knows from
Crnsede la Educational.
"Of course, we seldom get a letter
like this, "said Mr. Cosper. "At least,
not just like this," he added, laugh
ing, "but we do find an amazing ignor
ance of one of the most common dis
eases, and just as that card over there
urges people to let the light Into their
homes, we are trying to let the light
into those minds which are dark on
this vital subject."
That interest in the exhibit is un
abated was shown by the large attend
ance yesterday, Mr. Cosper and the
Visiting Nurse committees being kept
busy all day. answering questions and
explaining various phases of the fight
that Is being carried on all over the
country. If the attendance maintains
its present ratio of increase during the
ten days of the exhibit ending next
Saturday, Portland will crowd Kansas
City for the record attendance in cities
