J was afraid of trouble, In view of the threat be had made Sunday. - Lotisso took his wife by the arm. and started to pull her Out of the place. .:' When they got upon the stairway to the street, stw broke away. When I stepped to the head of the stairway to try to influence him to Quit abusing his wife, he said to me: " "Elmer, if you come a step down; those stairs. Ill Dt you. " "All I ceuld do was step to the tele-: phone and can the police station to warn them' of possible trouble." - Lo tisso returned from England In 1919. His war bride followed ' him to Portland, ; and the two lived together until six weeks ago, when the, girl went to live with Irma Dawn. WIFE WANTED GAT TIMES .

Lotisso became agitated as he talked, and changed his position On .his narrow bunk in his cell frequently. -He- wore an army shirt and his conversation was full of the vernacular familiar to the doughboy.

Commissioner I-Yank Seufert contends wlU never be finally .settled until all the fish and game are dead, will be up be fore the next session of the legislature in alt its pristine bloom and glory. The Rogue river battle is brewing afresh while there will undoubtedly be a fight over -the amendment of. the fish -end game commission act of 1920 as well as various of the administrative features and details of the fish and game code. FIGHT IS BEEWISO I ' " It'aeemg clearly apparent. that an vat tempt will be made to throw the power of- appointment back in the hands of the governor, .so far as the personnel of the commission Is concerned. This ill un doubtedly meet with the- approval and support of the governor's office, and. from what can be learned, will not meet with the opposition of the present fish and- game commission provided the law is so re-written that it wilt not disturb the tenure of any of the present members of the commission elected at the. special session of . the legislature. It requires no spectacles to -see that this proposi tion may well . be orovocative of strife eince the appointing power! was taken from the governor for the sole purpose of defeating the announced -intention of Governor Olcott to remove the members of the commission, most of whom were then and all of whom are now in office. DIYISfOX QUESTION LOOMS There will, in all probability, be a proposal submitted for the creation of two separate and distinct commissions, each sitting and acting separately and acting- Independently within its own Jurisdiction. Opposed T to this is the contention that the present arrange ment. In practical effect, constitutes a double commission.: while the present plan of common meetings and co operative administration works-for bet ter and more efficient administrative and executive work. Out' of it all un doubtedly will come the same old con tention and legislative turmoil. 80 far as the Rogue river controversy is concerned the perennial fight is still simmering, with the same different and divergent viewpoints held by the Mac leay interests at the mouth of the river, the Grants Pass people chiefly interested in. commercial fishing along the middle reaches of the river, the Grants Pass and Medf ord sportsmen who want to see the river given over more to them than tq, the, commercial interests ' SOLUTIONS OFFERED Henry O'Malley, field assistant of the federal bureau of fisheries for this dis trict, and Hugh Mitchell, hatchery su perintendent, have been working during the summer an attempt to Work out a- compromise between these various conflicting interests that would bring peace to' the Rogue river district, but seemingly without much success. O'Malley. has recommended that the closed season be fixed from May 15 to October 1 for the lower river, and from June 1 for the Grants Pass section, with weekly closed periods of 38 hours for the entire river. In addition to this he has recommended that seines and set nets be prohibited and nothing but gill nets of large mesh be used. FLAX AGBEED TO This compromise bas been agreed to by the fish and game commission on the recommendation f O'Malley, and, it is understood, has also been accepted by Rodney Macleay, the head of the Mao leay estate at the mouth ' of . the river, ytio has also agreed to restrict his oper ations within a. range Jbetween Doyle a rock and the dead line across the bay. The compromise has been rejected by the Grants Pass people, however, who demand a closed riyer during the next four years which, they contend Is neces sary for the replenishment of the stream. All in all. it looks as though the com ing legislature will, as In the years gonevbjr, be surfeited with, fish before the 40 days of its session . have, passed. SPORTSMEN WOULD CLOSE - ROGUE FOR 4-YEAR" PERIOD . Grants Pass., Dec 1. Josephone county's sportsmen's league last night at a largely attended meeting, discussed the Rogue river fish -question or several hours.. ' At the end of the 'discussion a f legislature to close Rogue river to all kinds of commercial f lshtng for a period of four years, and closing the'river from December X to April 1 to all forms of sport fishing. -i The. fourryear closed season was fav ored because of the depleted condition of commercial and sport fishing.' For the past few years these two varieties of fishing have been on the decline, until the sport fishing of the upper river has been liberally ruined and the commercial fishermen at Grants Pass cannot make wages. . ? - ; . I .The Josephine -County Sportsmen s eague Is not a member of the pact be- ween ' the . Jacksofe county sportsmen. the. Portland associations and the Mac leay. interests, but denounces this so called agreement in very loud terms. ' The local association believes. that the Rogue river fish question should be left to -the people who, live along the banks of tha . river and ; not to ; Portland and other - fish . and sport .associations v In Northefnr and Eastern Oregon. , - The four-year - closed season would give the stream time to again attain it pre-eminence as the finest fishing river in the world. It has-been definitely found that the steelhead follows the. salmon, therefore without the salmon ; in the Rogue there willjte no steelheads.

Succesrful Ooimrtl syegiutte RANCID BUM REMADE RESOLD SAYS WITNESS That adulterated butter was man ufactured In the local Hazelwood company creamery at Front and Ankeny, streets for more than two years, was the-charge made before a Jury in the federal court this morning by United States Attorney Lester W. Humphreys. ' X "I will produce witnesses to prove that new butter was made out of old butter ,that had green and black mold on, it. Also that girls who worked down there complained about handling, it, be cause their fingers smelled badly and because they could not get the smell off." - These remarks were part of the open ing statement of the government prose cutor who has charged the company with violating the I national. pure food laws. -Although. Judge : R. S. Bean In formed them that it was not in keeping with the policy . of the federal court, Maurice Seltz and ' Roscoe C. Nelson, counsel, for the- company, asked permis sion to give their ' opening argument after Humphreys has jut all his wit nesses on the stand. s R.- C Schomp of Waldport, who was employed in the HaselwoCd plant for a year, testified to the conditions Hum phreys related, 1 Between February, 1918, and February.. 1919, he testified to per sonally dumping rancid, moldy butter, which be termed in "a very bad condi tion." into a vat with sour cream. Schomp said this mixture was raised to 90 degrees temperature and lime water added. The sweetening effects of the lime water did not remove the rancid smell, he said, so soda was added, after which the' entire mass bubbled and ef fervesced. -V Schomp said this mixed fluid was ' then put through a homogenizer, pasteurized, and made into butler. About 700 pounds of butter was made at each churning, he said. The buttermilk from these churnings was of no value, he said. so it was poured into the sewer. The butter was cut . into squares, wrapped and sold to the trade, Humphreys told the Jury. : ; SchomP testified to manufacturing the adulterated butter each, night for over a month,- after which he was transferred to another department.
