f'jite Game Warden J. W. Baker ha e
vTrepareil his first biennial report to the
governor, which is now in the hands of
the state printer.
He says that Oregon today ie one of
the best game statee in the Un'on.
The 1500 copies of the game laws,
which the s-.iecial session of the legisla
ture authorized printed, have all been
distrihu ed and that he still has many
applications which he can not fill and
asks that 5000 copies be printed for the
ensuing two years.
The i:iost periou-i violations of the laws
occur in distant parts of the state that
are ditli -tilt to reach and deputies have
to tra. - i as f..r as So or 100 miles and

Only two cases of forest fires were re
ported daring 1903 and both lacked in
evidence that would warrant an arrest.
The law for the protection of elk ex
pires September 15, 1904, and should be
re-enacted as soon as possible.
The deer in Oregon are on the increase
and are not being slaughtered in South
ern Oregon as they were in the past. He
recommends that the running of deer
with dogs be permitted during October,
but any dog caught running one during
May, June or July be killed and the
killer be exempt from prosecution. He
recommends a bounty being placed on
the couar, they being great killers of
The reports of the numbers of Chinese
or Mongolian pheasants are very con
flicting, some parts of the state report
ing an increase and others a decrease .
For the protection of these birds he rec
ommends a limit of five birds a day and
to prohibit the use of dogs for three
years, and if used at all to continue their
use to tb,e last 15 days of the open sea

Grouse are more numerous this year
than last.
Quail in some parts of the state are
greatly on the increase, Josephine and
Jackson counties being the best.
He says the law allowing one hunter
to kill 50 ducks in one day is a disgrace
and that 20 is a large and sufficient
Geeee should be killed at any season,
but prohibited at all times on nesting
or roosting places.
The limit on Mountain or Brook trout
should be changed from 125 a day to 75.
Salmon trout should be caught with
hook and line in October and November.
Bass are Wing caught iu Baa-
streams now and are increasing rapidly.
When the hunter and farmer are con
vinced that the game laws are for all,
then and not until then will the game
laws be respected.
Twelve or 15 deputies should 1 hired
and the best way to secure the funds Uu
their pay would be to license all boater
both resident and non-resident.
He makes the following recommenda
tions :
First Prohibiting the sale of upland
birds for five years.
Second License on each resident
hunter of $1.
Third License on each non-resident
hunter of $20.
Fourth License on each jointed fish
ing rod of 50 cents.
Fifth Increase of peualties for the
violation of the game laws.
Sixth Bounty on cougars of $20.
Seventh Bountv on timber wolves of
Eighth Bounty on wild cats of $4.
He shows that there were 215 Chinese
pheasant, 40 quail, 4 pairs of deer horns
and 1 pair of elk horns shipped out of
j this state in the last year.
There were 49 arrests made and pen
alties imposed in the last year.
Allowance for the office was $4200,
and expenditures were $4045.72, leaving
a balance of $154.23.
Both "A" and "B" Making Rapid
Advancement in Drill
1 he two military cadet companies re
cently organized in this city by Rev. C
H. Lake assisted by M. F. Wright and
F. G. Stewart are making great headway
in their work. The boys seem to wake
up to the idea of soldiering and attend
drill with a punctuality and regularity
that ehould make the members of the
local militia company ashamed, and
they must look well to their laurels as
soldiers, or the younger companies will
soon be able to excel them in every
movement. The young men drill like
veterans and when some of the parent
of the boys drop in to see what is going
on they always express surprise as they
note how well "our boys" are doing.
The companies drill on the following

Mrs. Chadwick Brought Into Court and
Pleads Not Guilty-War News
Washington, Dec. 17 Senator
Mitchell will leave for Portland to
morrow night to appear before the
grand jury, which is soon to take up
the land fraud cases. It has been in
timated to the Senator that an at
tempt will be made to have the jury
indict, not only Representative
Hermann, but himself, and it is
to testify in his own behalf that the
Senator will return at this time.
Senator Mitchell asserts his innocence
and declares in most positive terms
that he will come out unscathed un
less perjured evidence is brought
against him.
The announcement that the grand
jury is to hear evidence against Her
mann and Mitchell causes no surprise
in Washington, at least so far as
Hermann is concerned, it has been
known for a year that Secretary I
Hitchcock hoped to bring about Her
mann's indictment, but this is the
feat time it has been opportune to
ring matters to a head. It was not
mtil today that Senator Mitchell re-'
ceived an intimation that he was to
be brought in along with Hermann.
He promptly decided to go home and
appear in self defense. He expects
by personal testimony to establish
his innocense and to return to Wash
ington before Congress reassembles ,
after the holidays.
It is reported here that at least 24
counts will be brought in against Her
mann, connecting him not only with
cases in Oregon, but with the Hyde
Henson cases in California and Ore
fQS. Mr. Hermann does not intend
to go home to defend himself and is
undisturbed by these rumors.

woman under the police protection of
the city, to which she would be entitled
if granted a license.
'Do you want a dry town?" inquired
Mayor Hoover.
"No," replied Mr. Micelli, "I want a
wet town ; and the way to keep a town
wet is to grant liquor licenses to people
who do not offend the moral sense of tbe
city and conduct saloons in a straight,
legitimate manner."
On motion of Councilman Norman,
the woman's application was unani

Cot. L Hofer's Address Before C
0. S. N. S. Other Prominent
Visitors Deliver Addresses
The editor of the Plaindealer was the
recipient of a k'ndly invitation to be
present at the educational rally which
was given by the Zamzamian Literary
Society of the Central Oregon State Nor
mal school at Drain on Friday at w hich
time Col. E. Hofer was scheduled to de
liver a "Jimjamian" address on the gen
eral subject of "Education." The ed
itor of this live and progressive journal
could not be present but the Plaindealer
was represented just the same.
Col. Hofer came, he saw and con
quered Drain, gave nobody the "Jim
jams," but on the contrary made every
body happy. He talked on education
from the standpoint of a practical man.
He did not favor the tendency of the
age of devoting the time to instruction
in senseless "ologies" and impractical
"isms" but urged that instruction
should be along the lines of the practi
cal ; that boys should be instructed in
handicraft rather than in unneeded sci
entific subjects : that oar girls should be
given more instruction in thoee things
which qualify them to make better
wives and mothers, the centers of oar
homes. Mr. Hofer was enthusiastic in
his talk and seemed to inspire a like
Representative Edwards, of Lane
county, was present and made an ad
dress that was well received and made
many warm friends by openly advocat
ing the continuance of this Normal as
one of the institutions of the state.
He was followed by Captain Ben D.
Boewell and Superintendent Hamlin, all
of whom spoke feelingly for the Central
Oregon Normal, and complimented
highly the faculty for the most excellent
work they were doing.
Several most excellent selections of
music were rendered by the pupils which
were well received and highly appre
ciated by all. At the close of the pro
gram all were cordially invited to repair
to the Boarding Hall where light refresh
ments were served by the charming
young lady students.
After enjoying the refreshments, Presi
dent Dempster rapped for order and
made a most splendid address in regard
to Normal work in general and of the
Central Oregon Normal in particular.
He spoke of the fact that California
had seven Normal Schools, Washington
three and other states equal numbers,
while Orgon had four. The appropria
tions to any one of Washington, Cali
fornia or Iowa were equal to the whole
amount appropriated for the entire four
in Oregon. In the coarse of the evening
it was shown that the cost to the state
per year of the Oregon Normals for last
vear was about as follows: Weston
Normal, ;$500. for each scholar; Mon
mouth, $16 ; Ashland, $151, and Drain
only $72. These figures show bow eco
nomically the state s interests are
managed in Drain.
After President Dempeters's address,
short after dinner addresses were made
in the interest of the Drain Normal by
Mr. Ira Wimberly, Dr. Strange and
many others. Dr. Strange seemed to
strike the proper chord when ke urged
that to build up the town and school
there should be organization and united
action and effort.
As a result, at the suggestion of Presi
dent Dempster, those present resolved
themselves in an organization to carry
out the suggestions of Dr. Strange, and
a committee composed of many of the
representative citizens of Drain and
vicinity were appointed to act in con
junction with the Drain Commercial
Club in securing the co-operation of
similar clnbs and organizations through
out the country to secure proper support
to aid in building up the various Nor
mal rcnoois oi the state.
In the course of the evening th a.n.
ence was frequently called upon to join
in the cheers to Col. Hofer. Pant
well, Representative Edwards, Presi
dent Dempster, Dr. J. W. Strange and
the faculty, pupils and all connected
with the Normal school, which in all
cases was done with a good will.
Taken all in all the meeting of FriHaw
was a grand one and had a tendency to
arouse a feeling of enthusiasm in the
subject of education and of the Drain
normal in particular. There is no di
vision injthe interest in the an
the Drain Normal. All with one voice
join in the demand that simple justice
be done. A visit to the arhnnl will
vince even the most sdeDtical that th
Drain Normal ia worthy of the most lib
eral support by the state. It is honed
that other parts of the county will
arouse themselves to action to ask that
