MORNING ASTORIAN DOES
NOT YET DEEM MATTER
The Astorian is publishing the sub
joined letter in a spirit of fairness;
and not because it is yet certain thai
it has erred in the report it made late
ly, with regard to the ruthless killing
of elk in this county, for that is n t
The day before publication of the
article complained of, the party of
I'ortlanders involved in the matter
were in this city and did alt kinds of
talking, around town, of what had
been done in the woods by the sev
eral members of that party; the
stories varying with the quantities
and qualities of the libations indulged
in as the .nrn progressed, until onu
.could heir anything and everything
imaginable from one "ice cream par-,
lor" !o another all over the city. At
one, there were but two elk killed
at another, three; again, live, and fin
ally thi number swelled to sjen;
and all on the credit of the men lust
in from tl.c woods. But a few davs
before, the Seaside Signal had report
ed just such an atrocity, on the good
word of a nartv who returned from
the Nehnlem country where these
people hunted, and several slain elk
were known to be in the forest un
touched, save for the heads, ant'en
and teeth. And the fact that the
Portlanders had only a small quan
tity of jerked meat witn tnem, icnt
color to the whole presentation this
paper made of it; and while that
color may be dimmed as to any par
ticular member of the party, the mat
ter is susceptible of lodgement just
where it is.
The Astorian told the story as it
was. current on the streets of th'J
city at the time; and while it is
specifically denied now, by those
nearest its pith and point, the text
was gathered, in the main, from them,
various and divergent as the tales
were; and coupled with the reports
extant about elk'being killed and left
to rot in that neighborhood,, and
about that time; it does not feel it
self called upon to hedge in the mat
ter, save to such a degree as shall
release Any particular individual con
cerned, from the onus attaching; and
if the gentlemen named in the letter
below are not concerned in the mess,
the Astorian will absolve them just
as frankly as it has drawn them into
the controversy. The letter referred
to reads as follows:
"Portland, Or., Sept. 29, 1908.
"To the Editor of the Daily Astorian:
"In your issue of , Saturday, Sep
tember 26th last, you have an article
headed, 'Wanton slaughter of elk for
teeth,' and you have accused C. L.
Doty, Room No. 10, Chamber of
Commerce, Portland, Oregon, who
was one of seven or eight of the
party of hunters in the Nehalem Val
ley, of a shameful thing in this
(Clatsop county) developed during
the last few days, one that calls for
the interposition of the law and the
interest of the Elks' Craft in this
State.' Your informant is certainly
in error, for under the law each man
of the party is entitled to kill one elk,
and C. S. Doty did not shoot at or
kill one; and in consequence you have
done an injustice to him and his
"Now as to 'leaving hair, hide and
meat while they carried away every
tooth and bone in the jaws of the
seven big beasts,' your informant is
again untruthful, for every hair, hide
artd all meat, and bones of the head,
antlers, jaws and hides, of the two
killed were taken to the homes of the
various members of the party.
"How can you describe this as a
! piece of unparalleled hoggishness,
for each man is entitled to kill one
elk and this party did.not accomplish
that as they only shot and killed two
elk and so far as they know, wound
ed no others; nor did they leave any
of 'the hide, hair, antlers or meat to
go to waste for- all were brought
home and good use will be made of
it, and none wasted.
"There is nothing 'cheap and nig
gardly about killing an elk (a wild
one), and any man who goes into th:
woods, knows that it takes time and
strenuous labor, to accomplish fuch
an end, and he richly deserves the
benefit from his hard-earned sport.
"The members of the party to
which this article in your paper ap
pears to be directed are quite unable
to appreciate the reason or occasion
of this attack upon them, as they are
all business' men of the City of Port-

DEATH OF Wf.l. BEAS-
WELL KNOWN ASTORIAN SUC
CUMBS TO THE INEVITABLE
-FUNERAL WILL BE TODAY
News was received from Portland
yesterday that William Beasley, well
known as "Bill" Beasley, had died in
that city on Tuesday night. , Mr.
Beasley was well known in Astoria
havintr lived for over a quarter of a
century in Astoria, coming from Ne
braska 30 years ago. During the
early cart of 'his residence here he
filled the office of constable satisfac
torily and served nine years on the
police force. He also served at dif
ferent times, as a deputy sheriff un
der Thomas Linville. "Bill" was an
enthusiastic hunter and trapper and
derived much pleasure- in indulging in
his favorite sport.
Last spring he left here for his
claim and while there encountered a
three days' snowstorm in the moun
tains and came back with a severe
cold. He secured employment hero
but was unable to retain it on ac
count of his ill health. He went to
the hospital and later it developed
that he was suffering from an abscess
on the liver wnicn was wnuua.
About five or six weeks ago he was
taken to Portland by his sister who
took good care of him until his death.
About two weeks ago a friend from
Astoria called on him at Portland
and found that his right side was
paralyzed and it was thought then
that he would not last long. No later
particulars as to his death have been
received. The deceased was about 65
years of age.
