not to be the case. It was found
that the flue was defective, how

steps at once to have it fixed.

treasurer Ludwig Johnson and
Morris Schwartz were appointed
a committee to draft constitution
and by-laws.
Having another engagement
the writer could not be present
at the meeting but learned from
some of those present that the
meeting was very enthusiastic
and it is the intention of the or

other game birds such as the

stealing a horse but is suspected
of having murdered Frark Way,

on a homestead about 15 miles
from Prineville.

TWO FIRES STARTED.
The transformer on the Hiss
ner building, used by the Orphe
um burned out Thursday evening
and threatened a conflagration
but no damage is done the build
ing. The theatre was put out of
business temporarily and the
athletic performance scheduled
for that evening had to be post
poned. The alarm was turned in yes
terday morning, a flue in the
Presbyterian manse having
caught and threatened the house.
The fire boys responded imme
diately but were not needed.
The flue hnd a galvanized top ex
tension to place it above the
comb of the roof, This is some
what smaller than the flue and
soot had accumulated which
caught It forced Binoke out
through the fluo below the roof
has not seen him and" Way's gun
has been found in the cabin.
Two deputy sherifTs arrived
here from Prineville Thursday
and took the prisoner back with
them. At that time no further
information had been obtained.
The country in the vicinity of
the homestead was being search
ed by a large numbar of men in
an effort to find the body of
Way. Tapp is suspected of hav
ing murdered him and left later
on one of the saddle horses.
Sheriff Richardson questioned
Tapp yesterday morning before
he was taken from the "jail, tell
ing him he was strongly suspect
ed and suggested he prepare a
defense. The young man said
Way was one of the bst friends
he had ever had and in reply to
Mr. Richardson's suggestion that
he prepare a defense said "not
for me."
No doubt later development
will either strengthen the case
against him or establish his inno
cence. Winona wagons aro the best.

members for Wednesday, Feb.
14, (Valentine's Day.) Two
members will be chosen as cap
tains and each will choose men
for the hunt. The loosing side
will pay for a "rabbit supper"
at the Burns hotel on the follow
ing evening. This will be fine
sport besides ridding the country
of several thousand (?) pests.
There is already a lively interest
in this proposed hunt and no

The Times-Herald office, will find
a large number of our local sports
on hand to join the organization
and participate in the competi
tive shoot on the following Wed
nesday. It is proposed to make the
membership fee $1.00 and to
charge dues to the amount of
$4.00 per year to be paid semi
annually. The money thus se
cured will not be used for "riot
ous living" but for the purpose
of importing and pronairatintr
new game birds and fish.

evening and make it as interest

The exact date can not be an

Mr. Hanley.
It will be an open meeting to
all with no charge whatever,
therefore should be largely attended.
'Whii Is Who" in Agriculture.
Before the first March winds
blow the greatest series of try
outs ever held in the schools of
Oregon will be under way. , The
boys and the girls of the state
are going to determine "Who is
Who" in gardening, farming,
carpentering, cooking sewing
and in raising chickens, ducks
and pigs. Enthusiasm for this
statewide series of industrial
contests is waxing warmer than
it has ever been for contests
along athletic lines.
The plan is for every county
superintendent to enlist the sup
port of his teachers in explain
ing the plan to the children and
interesting them in the work,
and to secure the cooperation of
V. L. Snelling, who a few days
since returned from a business
trip to Portland, is of the opinion
that the next meeting of the
State Development League which
is to be held in Lakeview, should
not take place before August.
There are numerous reasons
therefore, notably among which
is the fact that Portland business
men will find it inconvenient to
to attend if the time is fixed at an
earlier date. Many events of
importantance will take place
during June and July, not the
notngricultural? Common sense
tells us he would not. His farm
may be in some little cove in the
bed of a forest canyon, fifteen or
twenty miles from another set
tler. His only neighbors are the
rangers, who have been taught
to suspect him as one who might
steal some of their precious care
fully preserved timber or as one
who wishes to grab a quarter
section of timber land on the false
pretense that it is agricultural
land.
If the land is really agricultu
ral, the ranger meditates that it
would make a good ranger station
and casts covetous eyes on it.
