already completing preparations for
entertaining the convention of the
National Council of Women, which is
to open here tho latter part of the

frage delegates will remain over for
the convention so that tho gathering
will bo one of tho largest and most
ropresentative women's meetings over

SPORTSMEN'S ASSOCIATION DE
Umatilla River and Meacham
Fry Notices to Be Posted Against Poaching.
It is probable that the apportion-
ment of official trout from tho gov
ernmont hatcheries for Umatilla conn
ty will bo made April 35, and the ac
tual distribution on or about way 1.
The destruction of millions of fish
at the government hatcherie.i by
floods has resulted in the apportion
ment being cut down large'y U'im
necessity. The decrease will bo di
vided between all localities in all
parts of the country.
Milton, which promises to increase
its membership by April 15, enough
to warrant the large share, will be
given 25,000 fish; McKay Creek will
receive 25.000 and Bear and Pearsons
creeks 12,000 each. The latter named
streams are tributaries of Birch
Creek. The remainder, whatever the
number may be, will be divided equal
ly between the Upper Umatilla and
the North Fork of Meacham.
A discussion of the charge that
land-locked salmon would devour
young trout by wholesale, resulted in
the proffer of 50,000 fish of that spe
cies being rejected. This, was on tho
principle that no risks should be run,
although the opinion that they Avill
do this was not unanimous
To Prevent Poaching.
A resolution was passed at the
Sportsmen's Association meeting last
Saturday, that the sheriff appoint a
deputy for the especial purpose of
preventing poaching in the streams
of Umatilla county by fishermen from
Washington. Fishing out of season is
the grievance especially aimed at. J.
E. Krause and T. B. Wells, the lat
ter from McKay, were appointed us
a committee to look after the distri
bution and consignment of the fish
when they shall arrive.

the Burtlick inquest opened today the.
court room was crowded witli women
wearing fashionable apparel. Mrs.
Burdick and Mrs. Hull arriveyd at
o'clock, when there was a general
craning of necks.
The motley crowd In front of the

licemen were compolled to clear it

PROTECTION TO ORGANIZERS.
Gompers Says Capitalists at Tampa
Threaten to Kidnap Them.
Washington, March 23. Samuel
Gompers, president of the American
Federation of Labor, last night sent
the following telegram:
"Chief of Police, Tampa, Fla., In
the name of organized labor as well
as every liberty-loving citizen, I de
mand your protection to our organlz-
eres, James Wood and James A. Rob
erts, and others whose lives have
been threatened. The men I know
to be law-abiding citizens, who would
not be guilty of an unlawful act. They
have a right to organize worklngraen
and if necessary to defend tho rights,
to strike for the enforcement of them,
if no other means of redress is afford
ed. The kidnapping and making
away with a number of Tampa work
men less than two years ago war
rants the belief that the present
threat is serious and emanates from
a capitalistic, organized bandetti.
This telegram was sent by Mr,
Gompers on rocelpt of statements
from the organizers mentioned that
letters signed "Committee to Tampa
nnd surrounding country," and threat,
enlng them with death unless thoy
loft. Tampa, had been received by
thorn. Mr. Gompors announced that
ho had been advised that letters sim
ilar to those also wero served on
Joseph E, Blaz, George Bristow and
Frank Kouey, members of tho cigar

Paris Horse Show Opens.
Paris .March 23. From the Rivera
and elsewhere many Americans have
returned to Paris for tho horso show,
which opened today and will continue
until April 13. Judging from tho
number and high class of tho entries
and tho great amount of Interest so
ciety Is taking in tho ovent, tho exhi
bition this year will bo one of the
most successful over hold hero. Pop

prize of Jl.fiOO is offered. Tho tests

j thuslastie over the prospect of secur
ing 200 brace of English pheasants
lor tho county and Eastern Oregon,
and the committee, J. E. Krause, H.
J. Stillman and T. B. Ayres, appoint-
on to communicate with tno lenerai
authorities having such work In
charge, can be depended upon to see
that every effort is made to get Uma-
una county's tun share of me birds,
Meteorological tables and every
other known method of comparing
the climate of the two regions show
that a strong resemblance exists be
tween the climate of Umatilla county
and tho north of England the hill
districts than between the latter re
gion and any other district in the
United States. The attempt to natur
alize the English pheasant here will
be watched with especial and pecul
iar Interest because of the very sue
eessful attempt to naturalize some
six or eight varieties of English song
and plumage birds in the valleys and
hill districts of the Western part of
the state, which attempts began about
12 years ago.
Introduction of Quails.
A comparison of observations show
ed pretty conclusively that the in
troduction of the middle western or
'bob white" quail has been quite suc-
eessful. in spite of poaching and the
otner disadvantages the birds have
been subjected to during the past
five years. Beyond doubt the "bob
white" is here to stay.
The association will have notices
printed on cloth and posted in differ
ent parts of the county, warning
against poaching, and there evident
ly exists a disposition to see that the
letter and the spirit of the law
against hunting out of season are
both carried out.
FORGERY FOR $57,000.
J. Pierpont Morgan's Name Used to
Secure a Big Fraudulent Haul,
London, March 23. A meeting is
being hold of the creditors of Count
Maurice Debosdari. who is charged
with having forged J. Pierpont Mor
gan's name to large amounts. The
meeting is in the bankruptcy court.
The petitioning creditor is Sir Alfred
Bickman, a prominent member of
parliament, who claims to have ad
vanced $57,000 to the count on a bill
purporting to bo signed by J. Pierpont
Morgan, but which proved to bo a
forgery. The count's liabilities arc
shown to be $100,000, largely raised
by this method: his assets, $5,000.
No trace of the missing count has
been discovered, neither has any con
