THjS JOKE WASfl)N
THE 0AME WARDEN
Rough andi?ometimes thorny are
the paths of true devotion. Over
toward thor rising sun horizon in
Coos cotiny where the bear and deer
still cavtfrt in licentious abandon and
the sajmon attain the size of sea
monsticrs there is a game warden
whoifcan relate a tale of Fickle For
tune's caprice laid in the trackless
zes of Coos odd million feet of
It so happened that L. A. Frey
who deals in clothing at North Bend,
C. O. Dover, guardian of deer and
game in general In Coos county, and
B. Gray, seeker after lost souls and
known In actual life by tho prefix
"Rev.", left Coos Bay some days
since to stalk the elusive deer. It
was Game Warden Aiken who spied
the trio and in western parlance,
"camped on their trail."
"Another bunch without hunting
licenses. I'll catch them red-handed,"
quoth the G. M., and so the un
suspecting hunters wended their way
followed closely by the minion of the
"Web-foot" law. Whether tho siren
warbllngs of Coos' feathered song
sters or the seductive quality of tho
mountain brooklet, no matter; ono
day the scent suddenly became luke
warm and the game warden found
himself walking round In circlets.
Many circlets did he do before the
truth burst like an April rainbow on
his mind he was lost. So were tho
hunters from him.
Kind Nature, however, watched
o'er her faithful son; for after care
ful search the mountain brooklet was
found and the game warden retraced
his steps mrough the sparkling wa
ter to where the trail pursued by the
hunters led in through the outskirts
of the forest. Then patiently he
camped, waiting for the return of
the thought-to-be violators of the
law. But though they returned, the
faithful G. M. did not see them. It
chanced that he was eating his noon
day lunch when the trio wended their
way back Coos Bayward.
When this was discovered the
game warden's zest after his quarry
was In no-wise abated.
"I have their names. I" make
them show their licenses," said he.
Then to North Bend he went and
the hunting licenses were shown up
nn Ms rnnuest.
Moral: Always carry a license.

Possibility That Telegraphers
May Tie UpRailroads
WOUJ0 PARALIZE TRAFFIC
fituatlon Xot Ready For Interfcrance
.May Develop In n
Chicago, Aug. 13. A dispatch to
tho Tribune from Washington, D. C,
With tho possibility of delayed
transaction of government business
as a result of the telegraphers strike,
that part of the administration re
maining in Washington, is deeply
concerned at the growth of tho move
ment and is hoping for intervention
by the president.
It has been adv'd of the presi
dent's concern and determination 10
do what he can to prevent serious
Interruption in the business of the
country, and the government, but
unfortunately the situation Is of a
character that does not admit of in
terference at this stage.
Government officials fear that
should there be a general strike it
would seriously embarrass the fed
eral government. Operators are cm
ployed In every executive department
and bureau, while the weather and
crop reporting services depend on
the maintenance of regular and un
interrupted telegraphic advices.
Most of the operators employed
by government departments at
Washington are union men and while
they have no grievances, it is under
stood that if a strike order is issued
it will be obeyed by government
Officials believe that a widespread
walkout of telegraphers might re
sult in disasters at sea, especially as
the hurrican season on the Atlantic
is approaching. Mariners depend
upon information furnished by the
government as to the state of the
weather. This particular state of
the weather depends upon the ad
vices from the Interior and any pro
longed suspension of telegraphic ad
vices from the various stations from
the weather bureaus would be seri
ous in its consequence to shipping
and life at sea.
Already the weather bureau has
felt the force of the spreading strike,
giving indication of tho situation
that would confront the bureau in
the event of an order directing a
striko of all members of the Com
mercial Telegraphers' Union. Only
three-quarters of the advices usually
received by tho weather bureau up
to 10 o'clock were in at that hour

Now York, Aug. 13. Kissak Jel
alian, charged with being a member
of the Armenian Hunchakist, was
placed under arrest late last night.
The police have been looking for
him for days. So important is tho
capture deemed ttat tho statement
was made at police headquarters that
a solution of the Armenian conspir
acy which resulted In tho assassina
tion of Hovhanes Tavshanjian, the
Armenian rug merchant, on July 22,
is about to bo made. Jelalian, so tho
Armenians opposed to tho murderous
society assert, and so tho district at
torney expects to prove, was the man
with whom Bedros Knachadorlnn,
Tavshanjian's slayer, lodged while In
this city awaiting a favorable oppor
tunity to fire tho fatal shot. Jela
lian is also alleged by tho police to
be the man who guided tho assassin
to Union Squaro, rehearsed him in
his act and pointed out to him tho
man marked for a victim,
Jelalian's arrest, it Is expected,
will be followed by several more in
