Officers and Men Who Mutinied Re
By unanimous vote Friday morn
Ing the general staff of the Oregon
National Guard voted to disband the
second battalion, third regiment, of
ficers and men.
This drastic course was taken to
punish the organization for the diso
bedience Vhich resulted in the arrest
of Major R. O. Scott, Captains Harry
E. Williams and Walter E. Tooze,
and Lieutenants Richard Deich and
Harry C. Brumbaugh, pursuant to
orders of Brigadier General M. P.
Maus, because of reported refusal to
march from Oakville to Gate, and for
the language used by the five of
ficers in addressing General Maus
during the recent maneuvers.
So far as the Oregon National
Guard goes, this brings the sensa
tional event to a close. By ordering
disbartdment, the general staff felt
that Us course would show the prop
er purpose to maintain discipline,
and would also sufficiently punish
all who had been guilty of mutinous
or seditious conduct during the re
cent field maneuvers.
Orders were also issued to Adju
tant General Flnzer to start at once
to organize another second battalion
for the regiment. As the disband
ment order is intended to apply only
to such officers and men as were
guilty of the offenses charged, in the
reorganization all who have not been
under charges, or who may not sub
ject themselves to charges before the
final mustering out occurs, would
be held eligible for readmission into
the service. This arrangement is in
tended to protect those officers and
men who have not been guilty of any
breach of discipline.
CONGRESS MUST PROVIDE.
Canal Will Not Be Completed Next
Your Without Appropriation.
Washington. Unless congress at
this session provides for the opera
tion of the Panama canal, President
Taft and Secretary Stimson believe it
impossible for tne army engineers to
keep their promise to open the big
ditch next year.
The question of tolls and railroad
owned steamships has stirred up so
much controversy in both houses
that neither the president nor the
secretary is hopeful of settling it.
The Panama bill was put aside in
me senate alter Brandegee had stat
ed that adjournment probably will be
hastened if it were considered in
the senate which the postoffic'e bill
was in conference.
The only ray of hope that filtered
through to the White House was the
news that Representative Adamson
of Georgia was considering the intro
duction of a joint resolution provid
ing for machinery of administration
and operation of the canal. The
president is much concerned in the
matter. ' Several times he stated that
he hoped the Oregon wonlH ho th
first craft to make the trip through
the canal and that, he would be on
RAXGERS WATCH FUL.
Energies Redoubled With Owning of
Annual Hunting Season.
With the opening of the hunting
season the forest service has redou
bled its watch over, the timber lands
under its care, as past experiences
show that with the woods full of
hunters the danger of forest fires is
greatly enhanced. .During the next
two months no section of the forest
will be left unguarded for a fire to
start and spread.
The opening of the fire season this
year finds the Crater Lake national
forest in better condition than ever
before for the fighting of forest fires.
Trails have been built into manv of
the Inaccessible spots, while niany
miles of telephone wires have been
spread like a network throughout the
forest to facilitate getting a call for
help to headquarters. Unless several
fires should break out at nearly the
same time there is little likelihood
of any fire getting beyond control.
The rangers will keep close watch
on the many hunting parties in the
hills and see that no camp fires are
left unextinguished. Rain over the
forest this season has lessened the
danger of fire..-
Sheriff Jones States Large Propor
tion of Taxes Paid.
Tax collections, according to
Sheriff Wilbur Jones, are extremely
good considering the levy rate and
the supposedly stringent times that
are general throughout the nation
At the present time the sheriff's
office has collected betwen $450 dflO
and $500,000 of the $718,000 that
was levied, and those who paved only
half of their taxes at the first of the
year and are waiting until October
15 to remit for the balance, will, ac
cording to Mr. Jones, make the de
linquent list exceptionally small,
when the second payment has been
The tax roll is the heaviest in the
history of the county and Bonie ap
prehension as to the collection was
entertained by the county officials,
and the promptness with which the
citizens have met the levy is a source
of great satisfaction to Mr. Jones.

Cull Out and Fatten.
It you are desirous of having a
thoice flock of pullets, you must cull
closely as they are growing. Weed
out every undesirable. specimen. If
you can get several of them out at
'once, yovi can fatten them for the
broiler market. It does not pay to
raise nnllets tnat are off color or de
fective In any way. You may think
at the time that they are pullets and
that you will want them for egg pro
duction, but the time will come when
they will be an eyesore to you. You
will mar' an otherwise fine lot of
birds by having in with them some
that are not right as to color, form
or some special points. The best
thing to do is to watch and crtll close
ly. In order to do this, endeavor to
raise as many chicks as possible so
that you will have a wider field of
Nuevo, Laredo, Mexico. The dis
covery of a number of rifles and
10,000 rounds of ammunition con

on the charge of smuggling.
