dozen armed officers in the crowd !" - M
More than; 175 men straightened up, turned, aiad stared
foolishly. Then they realized that all those gleaming buttons
they saw were police badges. With that realization, the point
was driven home that "the house was pinched" and that one
of the greatest international cock fights ever staged in Ore
gon had been raided and otherwise nipped in the bud. I
. The. raid was staged at the Ben Smith farm between St.
Paul and Champbeg. shortly after
1 o clock Sunday arternoon. Ot'
125 flKhtina cocks were seized bv
the federal, state, county and city
ponce officers In the raiding
eiuad, and seven men, admitted
owners- of the birds, were arrested
and fined 125 each in the justice
court in Woodburn, on charges of
cruelty to animals. The spectat
ors, said to number approximately
175, were not arrested; Those
fined were Ed de Math, Glen Har
mon, G. D. Hart man. Ralph Stone,
Paul Borman, all of Portland; J
Barry of Oregon City, and Ben
Smith, on whose ranch the tourn
ament was staged., :
; The bird fight was to have con
tinued for three days, it is said,
and . was an International event
birds being entered from British
Colombia to Tia Juana, Mexico.
An admission charge of $5 was
made at the gate and prizes up
to $1000 were offered by the "as
sociation." It was William S. Levens, state
prohibition commissioner, who
startled the gathering with the
observation that any attempt to
get away would be futile. But
when Levens augmented his state
ment with the declaration- that
there were more than a dozen
armed officers in the crowd, he
Underestimated his following.
There were, as a matter of fact;
12 officers and two state humane
01'ficers In the gathering. Those
present, in cfticial capacity were:
ivUIIam S.' Levens, state prohibi
tion commissioner. Roy Brcmr er;
Sam Burkbart, and Bart Smith,
Marion county deputy sheriffs: M.
M . Miller, principal keeper at, the
state prison, five state prohibition
agents. three federal ' prohibition5
agents, five Portland police offi
cers, f oaf other officers one froi i
Linn county, and Field Officer
Wade and Mrs. F. M.' Swanton.
of the Oregon Humane society.
The raiding party traveled In
' Jt "was through the instrumen
tality of the humane society that
the raid was staged, the tip having
been- received that a large fight
was to be held in that locality.
Commissioner Levens took part in
thai affair, he said, believing that
!iquor would be flowing freely in
the large gathering.. A, gallon Jng
and -a. pint of moonshine was
found: in the barn, although its
owner was not discovered, . After
the. place had been searched -for
liquor, Sam Burkhart. - deputy j
sheriff,, took charge. of the raid.
' Those attending the fight were
motetly Oregon . men, although
many from outside cities were
present. Fans from. Seattle, Vic
toria -and Vancouver are' said: to
have, been in , the. large group of
spectators, . ,m .
, Two birda had been klUed in

tlie- place, a third had. its leg brok

slashed . and mutilated, they, . were
killed by the raiders. " In the cen

fight was staged, a ring; had, been
