Deputy Telford said he followed the
three men and Baw them shoot the
ducke, some 20 In number, and that half
of them could not fly. When he made
known that he was an officer and that
he was compelled to arrest them, Han
ley, reads the report, became very
heated and took the stand that hia
friends could not be arrested without a
warrant. Telford, who was not sure
on this point, let the men go with the
understanding that he would go to
Bum, wher he would secure warrants
When he wa gona the alleged guilty

In tle report, Telford also said that
the people in ithat section tf th etate,
meaning southern Oregon, were' under
the Impression that they could shoot
ducka any time they wished. He also
said , ha wlahed ' thereV.- waa sonle - way
that the people might ae notified of the
law, so they could not plead Ignorance
when they were found hunting .ducks
out of season.

"Which would you rather have three
bags with two apples In each bag, or
two bags with three apples In each

"Three bags with two apples tn each
bag." said a boy In one of the last
seats, while the clasa still 'debated as
to the -best answer. ' .

George L. Baker, as Mayor Day, Learns
That People Generally Are Selfish
For a day and a half George L. Baker,
president of the city council, has been
acting mayor of Portland. .While oc
cupying the chair of the c,hlef execu
tive oMhe cKy1 he'has observed a KUSH
ber of things about human nature that
'never impressed him before. He haa
found that people are more selfish
than he thought them to be, an4 that
men who are called "big jnen" do not
hesitate to ask for favor from the
city that they would not think of grant
ing In their own business.
"The short time I have been at the
head of the city has revealed to me the
selfish side of human nature aa I had
not observed it before," he said yester
terday. "People flock here to ask for
favors which will benefit no one but
themselves. They seem to thlnlt that
any concession they can get from the
city they are entitled to. Men who are
termed "big" come to thfe mayor's of
fice and ask for favors which they
would not think of granting If the
same conditions applied to their own

duty , to protect . the weak from, the
strong. He most be watchful of every;
effort made to g-et aomethlng from the f
city. When complaints come to this of-
flee It la his duty to tone his Influence 1
to settle them Justly and fairly, and j
alwaya be on the lookout to protect
the weaker ones. The stronger ones, J
the men with means, are more able to j
take care of themselves.
"I . think It would prove to be a se-I
vere nervous strain to attend to the du- 1
ties of the mayor's office for any 1
length of time. There is such a varie- j
ty of complaints and questlona being-!
presented to him every hour In the '

Portland, the potential metropolis of
. the Pacific coast, deserves and de
mand the best form of municipal gov
ernment yet tried by American cities;
that ia, government by a commission
directly responsible to the people'. Our
City Is a big business Institution. It
ahould be run on business principles.
Econoorfy, efficiency and responi?e to
public requirement should be its most
Important features. The present form
of government is essentially lacking in
all these, as has' been demonstrated
by actual experience. Under the pres
ent system a good man Is so fettered
and handicapped that he can accom
plish little, while a bad man evades
direct responsibility and In the obscur
ity and confusion of numerous boards,
committees, bodies, etc., is usually able
to hide from the public the evidence of
. The commission form of government
aims to concentrate responsibility, se
cure better men and pay them for their
services. Corporations, public or pri
vate, usually get the services Ihi v pay
lor, no more arm no less. The theory
la to place the responsibility of the
conduct of the city's affairs upon, five
men, Dfvy them Well, require them to
irlve all their time to the publl. , pro
hibit them from having or entering Into
any ousiness relations whatsoever with
any person or corporation doing biisl
nea with the city, hold them rigidly
responsible for the honest and efficient
conduct of their office and discharge
them when they cease to properly per
form their duties. This la .he form of

Tacoma. Sept. 2. Tacoma Is ready
for Its big spectacle "The Burning of
Rome," which will be shown to thou
sands at the Stadium bcglnaing Mon
day night and to continue through the
week. "The Burning of home" celebra
tion Is the result of the successful Car
nival of Nations which the city pro
moted early in July. Rome as It stood
centuries ago has been reproduced in
the Stadium and 1000 performers have
been rehearsing Ihelr pans for several
weeks. Two teams of flrehorses have
gone around the track at the Stadium
ttme after time and no circus horses
can outdo them In speed and daring in
swinging tbe light chariots around the
horse shoe. A score of excursions will
be run from Seattle, Kverett. Olympia,
Shelton and other Sound points.
Preparing to Greet Taft.
The political leaders and thone in of
ficial life in Tacoma are now in the
midst of strenuous preparation for the
visit of the president, scheduled for
Saturday and Sunday, October 14. and
15. President Taft haa announced that
he will go up Mount Rainier and every
body Is getting ready to show him the
time of his life on the second highest
mountain in the United States. Taco
mans are hoping hia visit to the mount
will result in more work being done In
the line of marking and cutting trails
up the slope and that the government
appropriations will be increased to
more adequate size. Tacomans will
probably hear the president speak in
the Stadium on the afternoon of his
Railroad Assam Greater Activity
A general resumption of work by
both tho Northern Pacific and Milwau
kee ' railroads is forecasted by the ac
tlvltics of these 'companies tn the vicin
ity of Tacoma. The Milwaukee has
long delayed the hullci'ng of its station
at this place and it is now rumored
In railroad circle that that company
will build many blocks nearer the ccn
ter of the City than Its temporary, sta
tion Is now located. The Milwaukee
has bought considerable of the holdings
or the Oregon-Washington railroad be
tween Twenty-fifth and Seventeenth
streets In the city and It Is believed
will use tills as a station site.
The Northern Pacific raMway olflc
lals. President KUIott and several of
his division chiefs Included, have been
looking over the various works Of that
company in the vicinity of this city and
tho Point Defiance cutoff 'will undoubt
edly be started In tho near future. The
right of way agents for this line have
been active for some time. and are now
clearing up the loose, ends. The super
tor court this week saw three condem
nation proceedings instituted and when
these are overcome everything will be
in shape "for the road builders. The
Northern Pacific haa only recently let
contract for shops, round houses, spur
and other buildinars at Auburn and also
contracta for new depots at Hoqulam,
Aberdeen and Centralla.
The Oregon-Washington will soon bc5
gin construction of a bridge across the !
city waterway Just south of the pres- I
ent bridge of the Northern Pacific, j
The route has been laid out and all the
right of way has been acquired. This
will give the Oregon-Washington its ,
own entrance Into Tacoma and will per- '
