The new state game and fish

the arrest of several fish dealers
of Portland for selling salmon dur

assert that "the fish were caught
during the open season, and kept
in cold storage, but the warden as
serts that no difference is made by
the law in the matter, the offering
them for sale being the offense. A
test case will be made.

It is to the effect that $50,000 has
been put up with Blair & Co, of
New York to pay back wages of
employes, which total now amounts
to something over $100,000. The
sale of the road has been continued
for ninety days, during which time,
the prospective bidders, presumably
the lllair faction, will send experts
to look the road over and inspect it
thoroughly; also to make an inspec
tion of the proposed route over the
mountains and see the feasability
of extending the line. The sale is
now set for the 14th day of June,
and there is but little doubt but that
time will mark the end of the long,
tedious and expensive litigation of
the O. P. road, and also an era of
construction to an eastern terminus.
Those who know Judge Fullerton
feel very certain that something
very definite was shown him to in
duce him to grant a further con
tinuance of the sale.
Under the new game laws grouse,
quail, pheasant, China pheasant,
silver, golden, copper, green or Ja

Trout can only be sold in Septem

misdemeaner to hunt or kill deer

k CHILD fl AS LOST.
Editor Lkadkr: On Sunday
March 12th, a new comer by the
name of Mr. Slogan, residing near
the head of Simpson Creek, started
out in the morning, with Ins little
girl, about twelve years of age, to
hunt some cattle. Finding the
cattle they started for home, (their
way being through the brush,)
which was some distance from the
house. The little girl started ahead
out of sight of her father, and by
some mistake lost her way and was
going in the opposite direction from
her home. The girl wandered on
until she came to a creek, known
as Mill Creek. Seeing she was
lost, she followed down the stream.
Between the hours of four and
five p. m, she came to a house on
the Reservation, at the foot of
Louie hill, being occupied by Billy
Metcalf and family. After relating
her story, she was taken in and
well cared for, being nearly ex
hausted with the cold and from
tramping through the brush.
Early next morning the Indian
(Billy Metcalf) saddled two horses
and making the girl as comfortable
as possible, started for her home
mound the road. It took them un-
till noon to get there. Passing F.
M. Stanton's ranch the little girl
told her story, and Edwin Stanton
sauuieu a uorse ana started across
the hills, by Campbell's and Mc
Dongall's, to tell the girl's parents of
her ' Ahereabouts. The father and !
mother nearly prostrated with grief,
were xsccfyingx the woods. They
called ttpoA theiriieighbors for help
to find th$ chld,' but could not ob
tain any. -XAs'soon a they learned
of their child's fcVfety xantl where
abouts, they were ao overwhelmed
with joy they cwtld. iuotiay or do
enough to be thankful. TUey re

hearts, to find their child nnd he

The teachers of the new county
of Lincoln, are informed that there
will be no Institute held in this
county until late in the year. This
has been decided upon after con
ferring with the Stale Superintend
ent. The reason for this delay is,
we have no fund that we .can com
mand to meet the expenses. Super
intendent Bryan had already prior
to division arranged for a county
Institute, which would include the
teaching force of Benton, and the
teachers of Lincoln are invited,
though not obliged, to attend the
one to be held in Corvallis the latter
part of this month. The county
Superintendent would urge the at
tendance of all teachers when this
