(From Monday's Dally,)
Ilamoval of thn state fish hatchery
from its present location on tho De
schutes to a site on Tumnlo crook'
wns proposed by Muster Fish Warden
It. K, Clnnton when hero on Satur
day, Mr. Clanton's Ideas on thu sub
ject will bo Incorporated In n lottor
to tho Commercial club, It being
nacoisary to enlist tho aid ot that
organisation It tho project Is to bo
carried nut.
Conditions at tho present hatchery
havo so changed sluco Its construc
tion, because of tho creation of tho
logging pond, that it has becorao
uocossary to find somo otlior location
If tho hatchery is to bo conducted at
Its desired efficiency. Tho slto on
Tumnlo creak', where It Is crossed by
thn road running west from tho
brickyard, was looked over by Mr.
Clnnton while Ikto nnd pronounced
Ideal far tho purpose
llccnune of tho depleted stnto of
tho fish nnd game commission's funds
It would bo necessary to rnlso tho
money needed for tho change,
amounting to about $1,S00, locally.
Tho fish troughs would bo furnished
from tho present hatchery and tho
maintenance would bo taken caro of
by tho tuto. Mr. Clanton's Idea was
that tho hatchory grounds could bo
mndo a show spot for the pooplo ot
Ilond, being roadlly accessible and
having groat natural beauty.
Tho matter was discussed Inform
ally by Mr. Clnnton with a number
of local sportsmuu and tho assur
unco was oxprosscd that tho town
could ralso tho necessary funds.
Iloforrlng to fish planting in this
section this year, Mr. Clanton said
that thoro woro now at tho Uend
hatchery about 200,000 fry. Ot th'cso
ho expects to place about t0, 000 in
Croscsnt, Odoll and Davis lakes, from
which tho egB wero taken. Tho ro
malndor would be available for plant
ing in any of the lakos and stroams
selectod by tho sportsmen of this
section. It might also bo possible,
Mr. Clanton said, to ship In nno or
two carloads of fry from HonuovHIe,
but railroad conditions ware un
curtain and It wns posslblo that the
transportation of tho fish car over
tho railroads ot tho statu might bo
ended at any time.

Tho roport recently circulated to
thn effect that all employes of tho
local mills will bo required to sign
cards ugrcelng to remain In their
present situations until tho war is
ovor Is declared by officials ot tho
mills to bo wholly without founda
tion. Nothing ot tho sort is or has
boon contemplated by tho mill com
panies or by tho department ot
labor, which is In charge ot tho now
federal employment service.
According to tho report, which
has been current In tho past few
days, this card system was to be In
stituted on August 1, and as this Is
tho dnto on which tho federal em
ployment service assumes chango of
tho omployment business so far as
it affects unskilled labor, it Is be
lieved that u misunderstanding ot
tho new federal activity Is tho cause
ot tho roport.
Asldo from tho fact that tho now
omployment sorvlco does not con
template any such card system as has
bcon reported Its general plan Is vory
vaguely understood hero. Tho fol
lowing explanation is from Tuesday's
Oregon Journal:
"A revolution In employment sorv
lco will occur In Portland, ns well as
throughout tho United States, next
Thursday. Tho federal employment
sorvlco will nssumo cntlro control of
all labor employment In every war
work plant employing more than 100
men. HerotlTo control will apply
principally to tho shipyards.
VLnbor pirating will bo placed
under tho ban by tho new order anil
no employer will bo allowed to lure
mon away from another by offor of
largor wsges or moro attractive con
ditions. "Employers In non-war work ore
pormltted to continue recruiting un
skilled labor whoro they can find It.
An employer In wnr work is not pro
hibited from employing an unskilled
workman who comes to him volun

bureaus, but thoy cannot uso the

Monday, August 12, Dend -wrestling
fans will tho opportunity
of witnessing at tho Gymnasium a
roturn match between Ad Gustavo,
middleweight wrestler, and Young
Norbcck ot Ellcnsburg, Washington,
present holder of the light heavy
weight championship of the Pacific
Northwest. The match will be to a
finish, no tlmo limit, best two out ot
three falls.
Tho match Is the outcomo ot the
contest last Saturday night, when
Norbock failed to down Gustavo
twice in 00 minutes. This match,
although a limited one, was a fast
one, considering the handicap. Nor
beck In several pounds heavier than
his opponent, Gustavo depending
upon his greater speed to bring him
victory. Ho will go into training
within tho next tew days and prepare
himself for tho event.
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Tho formation of a national guard
company In Dend was urged at tho
luncheon of tho Commercial club this
noon, and the assistance of the club
requested In obtaining the organiza
tion. A Whlsnant presented the
matter to tho club, pointing out that
with a national guard company hero
an armory might bo expected and
various other benefits.
'Mr. Whlsnant's remarks were sup
plemented by Captain E. M. Durkc.
who strongly urged that the club do
everything it can In furtherance ot
tho suggestion, saying that before,
tho war Is over such an organization
will bo needed. President Foley will
nunounco later tho names ot a com
mittee to reprosont tho club in the
Earlier In tho meeting Captain
Ilurko spoko on tho remarkably fine
moral hgleno record being made by
tho Orogon draftees. So striking
wero tho Oregon figures, he said, that
tho government had taken notice of
them and was now going out on a
tremendous work of Improving con
ditions in civil communities for tho
bcnoflt ot draftees and the returning
troops, as well as tor society in gen
eral. To show tho relative value ot men
In tho army, Captain Ilurko closod
his speech with a story ot an army
captain who refused to trade "one
mule skinner for two bankers and a
lawyer," bringing roars ot laughter
from his audience.
Another vory interesting speech
was made by A. It. Sweet, a Spokane
mining oitgtnoor, who has Just made
an inspection of tho Oregon Nitrate
company's property at Sheep moun
tain. Tho property looks promising,
according to Mr, Sweet, who de
scribed It as a secondary deposit
formed by leaching. Tho geological
situation Is such, ho said, that to
prove out tho values ot the deposit it
Is necessary to spond a small amount
ot money. Tho surface looks good
and tho ono quostlon Is whether tho
rtopostt goes docp. It It does It is
valuable; It not It la practically
worthless. A comparatively small
sum will bo sufficient to make tho
test, and ho suggested a hopo that tho
test bo mndo tor the dovolopmont ot
a natural rosourco, such resources
bolng tho things on which tho pros
perity ot a section depends.
In oponlng tho mooting, Manager
Ovorturt read a lottor from Carl A.

SALEM, Aug. 1. Kvoryono la
Central Oregon Is familiar 'with, this
historical fact that the people la
1917 placed their stamp ot approval
on a legislative act known as the
JG, 000, 000 road bond bill, and that
they did it over the bitter protest ot
the same forces that woro aligned
against tho measure in tho legisla
ture. It also Is a historical fact, but
ono not so well known, that I. N.
Day of Portland and a lobbyist named
Shumway, who operated for the
Grange-Farmers' union-Union Labor
combination at the legislative scssloa
nearly had a fist fight In the lobby
ono day and harsh words passed be
tween them. Fists woro doubled and
blows deftly parried for a brief mo
ment, when friends Intervened.
Shumway then declared to Day that
the pooplo would tramplo on the
$6,000,000 bond bill and repudiate It,
The peoplo didn't do it. Hut Shum
wya declared at tho time that war
was on betweon the bill and his
Maku Ilond a Rome.
Now It also is a well known fact
that tho $6,000,000 bond issuo pro
vides for a system of roads radiating
out of Dend which will make that
the Rome ot Central Oregon, if the
program Is carried out to completion.
it might bo ot interest to Dend
peoplo to know that tho old sores
still rankle among tho forces that
hurled all of their efforts against
tbo bonding bill to defeat It in the
1917 legislature and to defeat It at
tho special election of the samo year.
They failed, but the failure rankles,
and tho old wounds won't heal.
Delegation Must ll Pruned.
Consequently thero Is a quiet, but
well deflnled, move on foot to at
least pull the teeth from tho bill and
as a word ot warning, if tho peoplo of
Bond wish to bo tho Homo ot Cen
tral Oregon, with all roads leading:
to it, It Is up to that section to see
that its legislative delegation comes
down to Salem primed to combat a
move to smash tho bill and put It
out ot business.
Tho forces contemplated taking a
swat at it at the November election
this year, but tor somo reasons these
plans miscarried and the bill still
stands. Hut no ono who Is friendly
to tho good roads program should
fcol that tho opposition is lulled to
Another angle to this fight Is tba
fact that Walter Plorco, then a mem
bor ot tho stato senate, but now a
candldato tor governor on tho Demo
cratic ticket, fought tho $6,000,000
road bond bill, tooth, toenail and
tears, and had a special bill all ot
his own which ho tried to put over
and couldn't. If Waltor by any
chanco happens to become governor
it Is a sate bet ho will use all ot the
powers ot his office, and will exert
all of, his influence with tho lobby
ists who crowd tho corridors ot the
capltol, to put a crimp in tho $6,
000,000 road bill.
Thoro -will be plonty ot spirit and
dash against tho bill. Even it Wal
ter isn't governor ho will bo back la
tho senate and will probably put up
a big scrap anyway.
If tho bill stands, Central Oregon
pooplo can fcol pretty well assured
that tho original program will be
carried out, in tlmo at loast. Two
years moro will mako over $13,
000,000 in cold, hard cash available
to carry out tho stato road program,
and this will practically do tho work
that was slated under tho $6,000,000
bonding act. This money will come
from tho $6,000,000 lssuo, tho Ileau
Darrott bonding iasuo, tho match
funds from tho federal government,
tho automobile funds and tho quar
ter ot a mill highway tax.
Auto 1 fundi es Highwuy Funds,
It has been determined now, b
youd a reasonable doubt, that the
automobile license- fund will more
than handle, tho $6,000,000 bead
issue and that the taxpayers at large
