Officers Now After the Man Who In
Violation of the State Law, Exterm
inated a Small Herd of These Anl
word comes from the Lehman
Springs country to the effect that
seven elk were ruthlessly slauehter
ett in that neighborhood n few days
For several years a banl 'f ll.ese
animals have been roaming the hills
of the headwaters of Birch and Camas
creeks and in fact throughout the
hills of the Bltio Mountains, and
sportsmen have occasionally seen
them, but they were afraid to kill
them, as there is a heavy penalty
against the destruction of one or
these noble animals at any time of
the year for any purpose. Recently
some unprincipled man who cared not
for tho law and whose ambition, ap
parently was to slaughter these help
less animals, ran into tho herd of
7 and it is reported killed the whole
bunch before he stopped. Some of
them were skinned and the meat tak
en to Ukiah and other places whero
it was sold, and some of them wore
left to lie on the ground and decay.
Elk meat Is no delicacy. It will
bring no more on the market than
tho ordinary beef steak, yet these an
imals were killed without regard to
this, when the man who was small
enough to do tho killing could only
use the hides and teeth.
The man who did the killing is
known to the officers, who have been
weaving a rope of evidence around
him for several weeks, and tho ropes
are tightening so that he may bo
landed at any time. When arrested
and brought to trial he may not ex
pect to get off with nny small fine,
as the minimum is $1000 and a penl
tentiary sentence In addition.
These animals are supposed to be
protected by the laws of the state.
Recognizing that they are being
slaughtered without cause, and know
ing that they would eventually be
come extinct unless strict measures
were taken to protect them, laws were
passed protecting the elk in the state
and none wcro allowed to be killed
at any time. Of course, this protects
them to a certain extent, but there
are unprinclpaled men who do not
care either for law or principal and
will kill the elk any way, and the only
thing that will put a stop to thn
thing Is for the guilty to be punish
ed to tho full extent of the law.
This is tho second report of the
slaughter of elk In tho foothills. Not
long ago complaint was made that
they were being slaughtered on Can
as Creek by a man, supposed to be
tho same who committed the last

BOYCOTTED THE POSTOFFICE.
How a Defeated Applicant Got Even
With an Opponent.
Henry Henson, an O. R. & N. engi
neer, pulling a passenger train be
tween La Grande and Huntlngtjn,
tells the following amusing incident:
' Some time last spring a hot post-
office fight was on at Haines, a way
station between North Powder and
The two rival aspirants for the
office owned stores In the little town
and had a good strong following in
tho country. After the appointment
was made, and I supposed things
were all. smooth, I noticed that the de
feated aspirant was on the platform
every morning to 'flag' me, as it was
not a regular stop for my train I was
supposed to stop for passengers on
being flagged. Several mornings I
noticed that ho stopped me when
there were no passengers to go, and
as I was losing time by this stop, I
finally called him up to the engine
and asked him why he stopped me
when there was no need of it. His
answer was rather amusing. He said:
Ion see, the postofHce here Is a per
centage affair. There is no salary at
tached to it and all tho pay that old
skinflint" gets is the cancellation.
so my friends and I are going to put
him out of the business by saving up
o ir letters and mailing them on tne
train. We are toing to boycott the
postoibco. He will be compelled to
handle tho mail that comes to us, free
of chargo, and we will not increase
his pay by mailing our letters with
him.' The next morning I didn't stop,
and suppose by this act lifted the
boycott on the Haines postotflce."

New York, Oct. 30. Tho republi
cans are to have their innings on the
political stage in Greater New lorlc

whirlwind fininsh planned for Gover

in abundance. Secretary of War

" Common is the commonplace." The
most valuable of civil benefits is such a
commonplace matter, that we scarcely
give it a thought. It would take a win
ter on a whaler nipped in an ice floe to
make us truly appreciable of the worth
of the poital sen-ice. What a wonder
ful thing it is ! Wonderful in its organ
ization, with its vast machinery for the
collection and distribution of letters, its
railway mail cars, its route riders, the
"unfailing order and precision of its
methods. Wonderful it is too in its re
sults. It knits together families widely
separated. It carries across the sea
some tender lover's message or perhaps
a little flower picked from the daisied
grave of an English churchyard. Every
bour of every day the mail bag is packed
with words which waken love and laugh
ter, and words which deepen the furrow
in the cheek and dim the failing sight
with bitter tears.
But with all this there is going on
through the .mail service a dissemina
tion of human knowledge, a reaching
out of human help whicfris one of the
crowning blessings of our century. The
correspondence schools led by Chautau
qua, are sending to every village and
hamlet the broader knowledge which is
so eagerly craved by many who are shut
in to the homely duties of a humble
life. Without the mail system this plan
of education would be impracticable.
Every mail, too, carries from the great
centers, the advice of great physicians,
which it would be impossible lor the
distant public to obtain were it not for
the mails. Few people realize how
many thousand people depend on the
mail service, for medical treatment. Not
long ago when some postal affairs were
being; discussed in connection with the
erection of the new postoffice building
in Buffalo, N. Y., some light was thrown
on this subject by the statement that
the mail by Dr. R V. Pierce amounted
daily to something over 1,500 pieces.
Of course this is not a common case, be
cause Dr. Pierce's relation as chief con
sulting physician to Buffalo's famous
institution, 'The Invalids' Hotel and Sur
gical Institute, makes his advice and
that of his staff of nearly a score of
skilled and experienced specialists much
sought after, especially by women, to
the treatment and cure of whose special
diseases Dr. Pierce has devoted over
thirty years of almost constant labor
But though this example is out of the
ordinary, it may serve as an evidence ol
the amazing benefits reaped by the pub
lic from the mail service. It puts every
outlying hamlet in touch with the most
aUVHllceil meiiicai sjjcuiaiiBin ui wcuujr.
It gives at a cost of a two-cent stamp,
the skill and experience that it has taken
years to acquire. Literally at the cost
of a two-cent stamp, since Dr. Pierce
invites sick women to consult him by
letter without charge. And this would
seem to be one of the most remarkable
services rendered by the postal system,
perhaps the supreme service of all. For
while it is a splendid thing to be able to
shop in New York while living in Kan
sas, and a grand thing to be able to
command the learning of great pro
fessors while working in the Michigan
woods, it is a still grander thing that by
means of this cheaply supplied service,
men like Dr. Pierce, who have the dis
position to be helpful, are enabled to
place their skill and knowUdge at the
disposal of those who are being draggtd
down by disease, without the rxjssibtlity
of help from those about them. When
one contemplates the vast and far reach
ing benefits of the mail service, so briefly
touched upon in this article, it makes
the familiar gray uniform of the postman
the most glorious of all uniforms, for it is
worn by the soldiers of the army of peace.
It makes one ftel like taking bis hat off
to the on-rushing mail train, and cheer
ing'the work and wisdom of Unci Sm.
