All of these men are well-known to

If McMillan tnakea the race for' the

will have the support and votea of hla

thla atrength aa a positive force and a

Beldlng Anti-Trust Measure
Passed by City4 Council
Is Not Dead. ,
Once again tha man who marks up tha
arrival of trains at the Union depot
accredited tha Southern Paciflo train
from San Francisco with arriving on
time. Teaterday morning waa the fifth
time this week tha train arrived on
time and railway employes stood, si
lently by as the train rolled Into, the
ahed an shook their heads tn wonder.
y Words failed them In describing their
feelings at the hitherto unequaled ac
tion of the train and they congregated
In (troupe of three and four about the
depot where they predicted of the dread,
ful thine that will surely, happen in
the future to make up for the good serv
ice rendered thla week.
However. If tha Southern 1 Pacific.
train haa been making echedule time due
to some unforseen power.- working for
ins puoue weai are, tne overland eastern
train on the O, R. N. has been run
ning on Its usual slow schedule. Twice
this week It was on time and at other
times It has been running anywhere
from 40 minutes to six hours late. Tea
terday in accordance with its usual cus
tom, the train did not get In until 11:10
two hours and 35 minutes late.
While merchants have oeaaed to com
plain about tha service rendered from
San Francisco, they are still making
strenuous remarks about the O. R, A K.
train and will not be satisfied until It
comes in on tlms at least a majority of
the days of each week. -

It Xa Held by Thoea Oppoaed , io
' Matter That Claoaa "Excepting
Labor Unions Would Nullify It In
Court. ' " '
Tha ' Beldlng : anti-trust ordinance
passed at tha last meeting of tha city
oouncil may have bean Invalidated by
reason of tha amendment offered ' to
ft by tha - labor anion representatives
providing 'that this ordinance shall not
Be constructed as applying to labor
unions.- Thla la tha discovery that
haa been worrying the city attorney
for, the paat few daya, since opponents
of the measure have be run to gloat
over what they allege to be a fatal de
fect In tha measure aa passed by' tha
council. '
It la being held by those prha are
opposed to tha measure, and the opin
ion of the city attorney tends In that
direction, that the Introduction of the
clause excepting labor onions from the
firovlalona of the ordinance would nul
lfv It hefora the aunreme court on the
1 deeding that It Waa discriminatory leg
slarlon on the face of It, If thla con
tention la well founded It means that
tha- Beldlng ordinance aa passed by the
eounoU Is of no effect and to all prao
tlcal purpoeea void, (
The history of this amendment la
peculiar. When the ordinance came up
for Its first consideration some per
sons affiliated with the labor organiza
tions took exception- to the proposed leg
islation on the alleged ground that It
waa directed towards labor unions. Al
though assured that this was not the
case and that the ordinance as drawn
would' have no application to unionism
or tne conduct or management of labor
organisations yet the objectors refused
to be comforted until the city attorney
had consented to an amendment except
ing labor unions from the provisions of
the ordinance.
After some discussion an amendment
waa- dictated by the city attorney and
taken to the council meeting by the ob
jectors but before Its presentation was
changed to the form Anally adopted.
This provision is what has worked the
mischief, according to tha present re
port . 'i
The ordinance, however, la not dead.
Mayor Lane stated last nisrht In the
event It was shown that the amendment
would serve to mitigate the strength
of the ordinance he would re-refer it
to the council for further action and
correction. If It Is decided that the
amendment will nullify the ordinance
the mayor will send the measure back
to the next council meeting with the
recommendation that - It be corrected
and put Into legal shape.
It Is contended on soma aldea that
me incorporation - or any excepting
amendment into the ordinance would
weaken It, and this argument will be
well looked into before the measure Is
finally handed tip to Mayor Lane for
his signature. - i , .

that they can kill plenty without slay

Just after the recent rain the deer

Experienced hunters state that at leaat
400 deer will be killed la this section
before the season closes.
Ths large number of deer Is due both
t6 the excellent range and the protec
