CONCLUSION OF THU, RABBIT DRIVE AT KCHO.
Photograph by Lee Moorhouae, Pendleton, Or.
. Between-five and six thousand raV
bit were slaughtered In a rabbit drive
last iSunday on, the government pre'
serve in Umatilla county hear the town
of Echo, on the line of the O. R. & N.
company. Fully COO people took part In
the contest Two excursion train from
Heppner and Pendleton bore large
crowds to the acene.. v .
Rabbit drives are of frequent oc
currence in Umatilla county, wnere tne
usually harmless little animal is a
source of constant annoyance to the
rancher. Orchards are almost ruined
and alfalfa crops completely obliterated
by the 'huge droves which Infest the
country. While the carcasses will be
utilised at a nearby cannery, It Is not
their value as a food product that leads
to their wholesale slaughter, but be
cause of the hardship they work on
Animal experts are disagreed en the
origin st the-little animal which now
thickly Infests the sagebrush. Some
claim that the present stock descended
from Importations of the long-eared
English hare, while others claim the
product to be a mixture with the Ameri
can hare.'; Still others are of the opin
ion that the stock is a species of the
mule-eared rabbit, which Is common In
When dressed the average rabbit will
weigh from two to three pounds, and
when properly prepared Is a r el lehabi
food product. While something of a
novelty, the rabbit cannery Is an ap
parent success and finds little difficulty
in .disposing of Its entire output. -
From a sportsman's standpoint the
rabbit chase is a great event and one
which the average spectator is likely
to long remember. A long wire-netting
fence In the form of a half circle, Is
stretched at one end of a field In the
center of this is a hole leading to the
corral.. From the opposite direction
the contestants . form in another- circle
and gradually work to the' fence forot
lng the horde of rabbits before them.
. After the circle' is completed and all
avenue of escape Is cut oft, the victims
are either forced in the corral or killed
with clubs. A few find their way to
freedom by escaping the cudgels of the
contestants or dodging between their
legs. One lone coyote weighing several
pounds was corraled with the rabbits.

Governor Hdber M. Wells of Utah,
speaking of The forest reserves, said to
day; "Although I approve of the forest
reserve act and think it a good thing,
still I think the matter is being car
ried J:o extremes. JThere are thousands
of acres set aside as forest reserves
that are absolutely worthless as such,
Inasmuch as the chances of converting
those acres into forests are very slight
indeed." . ' -
In this connection the governor said
that many of the thousands of acres set I
aside as part of the forest reserves were I ,,
valuable for erasing purposes, and that I
it was the object of this convention to
try and devise some remedy which would
do away with the present restrictions
upQn gracing as contained in the pres
ent forest reserve act.
Continuing, '(he governor stated that
he endorsed the policy pursued by, Mr
Plnchot, and thought that the placing 'of
these lands under the control of the de
partment of agriculture. Instead of al
lowing them to remain under the con
trol of the department of the interior,
would be a step toward remedying ex
"The stock Interests of Utah." con
tinued the governor, "are very good, but

mere snouia do a raise in t prices 19
make the business 4 profitable one." J
Governor Wells gave some interest
ing information In regard to the mineral
production of the state, saying that the
industry is very active in 'the different
sections where mining is being carried
on, and that the Silver King mine is
paying f 108,000 per month in dividends,
and the Daly West $104,000 per month.
In addition to its monthly dividends the
Silver King has declared a Christmas
dividend of an extra f 100,000.
The governor will speak Wednesday
upon the forest reserve question.

CORVAlllS HAD A
LITTLE QUIET CAME
(Josraal Bpecltt Berries.)
Corvallis, Or., Jan. 13. Charles E and
W. T. Small were arrested ' here this
forenoon on a charge of conducting gam
bling games In the rear, room of their
confectionery establishment The place
was raided Saturday night or Sunday
morning at 1 o'clock and a gambling
game in full swing was what met the
eyes of Chief Lane, Officer Osbura and
Constable Vidlto. At one table stud
poker was"1n- progress, M$Ue at another
table a game of draw poker was the at
traction. The players were mostly
young boys about 1( or 17 years of age.
The officers secured an entrance
through a rear door, the lights in the
front of the establishment being but at
the time. ; 1
All the players were at once taken in
custody and the work of taking signed
statements lasted until t o'clock Sun
day morning. There is a law both by
state and city against gambling and the
penalty is heavy in both. '
Corvallis has been entirely free from
games for sometime until the present
Games are not run even In the saloons.
Cost to Xna Benton.
The cost of conducting the business
of Benton county last year was $18,

less than the expenses from the sams
source in 1901 and about $5,000 less than
those Of 102. ,
Y A Leap Tear Party. ,.
One of the most enjoyable social af
fairs of the season occurred at the ad
ministration building O. A C, Satur
day evening! It was a leap year party
given by the Feronian society girls to
their gentlemen friends of the Betegath
eau society. Besides a musical and lit
erary program and the usual refresh
ments, there were many unique features
that rendered the affair highly interest
Brooks and Xls Feathers.
That Apostle Brooks got rid of his
coat of tar and feathers a short time
after they were, applied, is at last as
certained. It is stated on unquestiona
ble authority . that Brooks returned to
the Beach .house by a circuitous route
that night and applied the usual meth
ods for ridding himself of his unwel
come coat That he left the place with
Creflleld, and that he went away with
his brother apostle, seems almost cer

Xoose Fighting; Jim. '
' James Morey, resiumg south of Marys
river, caused a breese of excitement on
Main street Saturday afternoon. While
under the Influence of liquor he mounted
his horse and started to accompany a
companion out ; of town. Suddenly
changing his mind, Morey whirled his
horse around and rode north down Main
street at full speed. He fell headlong,
however, striking on his head and was
picked up: unconscious snd carried into
a nearby store, where a physician ex
amined his Injuries and pronounced
them not serious. .

Another Beaeflolal Change la the Arcade
Theatre. : '
That popular family playhouse, the
Arcade, on Washington street is at it
agala This time the front Is being im
proved and it is of great benefit to .the
public. ' The automatlo machines that
attracted a lot of free loafers and hangers-on
are now shut from public gase
and can be enjoyed by ladles and chil
dren with more ease and without the
embarrassment of the vulgar stare of
the public that travels up and down
Washington Btreet. The new partition
and box office Is up to the usual high
standard of work done by the manage
ment of the Arcade. "
