CommlaalonorB Aik for Suggestions
from all persons Intorostod In
Such Mottors
The State Board of Fish and
Game Commissioners have un
dertaken a thorough revision of
the present system of the game
laws. The idea is to present a
code for adoption at the next Leg
isiature, wnien win give more
complete protection to fish and
game, ana correct numerous er
rors in the present system erf
ine commission uesires in
'making up this new game code
to get a thorough expression of
public opinion before the code
is presented to the Legislature.
For this reason the members of
the Commission ask that resi
dents in different parts of the
State, especially farmers, fruit
growers, rts well as sportsmen
send in any suggestions so that
the Commission may act upon
them. Suggestions are also
sought from the granges, com
mercial bodies, rod and gun clubs
and other organizations, in order
to get a game code suitablo for
different parts of the state.
All communications and sug
gestions should be sent to J. F
Hughes, secretary of the Fish
and. Game Commission, Salem,
At present there arc a number
of questions under discussion,
that will be of interest to sports
men in different parts of the
state, such as the questions of
bounties on predatory animals.
The commission is in favor of
a more rigid effort to exterminate
cougar and wolves. The ques
tion has been agitated in certain
ar s of the state to reduce the
non-resident hunting and fish
ing license to the same price as
the resident license. Many
snortsmen are aiso in favor of
reducing the limits on deer and
other game.

Many important matters were
discussed, and committees ap
pointed to look after them, the
principal one being the financial
committee, composed of R. T.
Olson, D. W. Barnett and Lewis
H. Irving, they being authorized
to make such changes in the mat-

ensuing year were elected: H
F. Deitzel, president: Chester
E. Roush. Vice-president: and
Lewis H. Irving, Secretary.
The next regular meeting will
held Friday, July 19th., and it
is desired that every one in
town be present, as there are
several matters to be brought up
that will need attention, involv
ing the interests of the entire
surrounding community, as well
as the town of Madras.

Portand, and said when he re
turned home that Burnett had
survived the operations, and had
an even chance to recover.
When Burnett alighted from
the train, which was going about
7 miles an hour, he stepped on
aloose stone, twisting his foot,
causing him to lo;e his balance
and fall. His forehead struck
on the corner of a tie. Evident
ly before losing consciousness he
attempted to lyse, when he was
struck on th side"v6f the head
by the boxing on "the car, and
knocked down a second time,
fracturing his skull on either side
of his head. He was unconscious

Twenty-two to twenty-one in
favor of Madras, Metolius drink-
in? the bitter dregs of defeat
after eleven innings, are the
brief facts covering the ball game
last Sunday, ft would take an
artist, with the gift of gab de
veloped in the superlative degree
to detail the game as it hap
pened. More replete than any
game we have seen with conspic
uous examples of how base bal 1
should not be played, it sure
furnished fun and amusement
for all who braved the heat to
be among those present.
If Christy Matewson, Mr.
Dooley or Dean Collins had wit
nessed the exhiiti n, their fer
tile dome of thought would have
dictated manuscript by the vol
Umn that would make Casey at
the Bat and those other athletic
classics appear as but the A B
,C's 6f immortal literature.
The happy climax came way
late in the evening when the lo
cal boys began to take part in the
game. A lead of sixteen to two
in the second inning is hard to
overtake, sometimes, but it was
different Sunday. It was just a
question of all things coming to
those who wait. Meuolius de
cided that twenty-one runs were
enough to win, and secured that,
number early in the game, just
as a matter of precaution.
Meanwhile Madras playing the
Alphonse and Gaston act, said
You first, my dear Metolius."
When Metolius had gotten ap
parently all the runs wanted.
Madras proceeded to show the
population her abiilty to promote
ancensions, for from about the
fourth innincr until th. final
round it was just a modern
version of Pussy Wants a Cor
ner, with the Metolius athletes
vainly striving to head off the
black women of defeat that was
slowly but surely creeping closer
as each lnnmor was rnmnlprpH
With all due respect to the in
ventive genius of those who
evolved the game and prepared
the rules and regulations, we
believe the game has suffered at
their hands, for they omitted to
make provision for the comedv
part, and we believe their omis
sion" should be corrected, for
without that feature, last Sun
day's game would have been
cruelty to animals, and that is
prihibited. However it was a
great game, properly and improperly-played,
filled with joys
and thrills, but alas, filled also
with regrets and misgivings.
