Want Changes in
The Harney County Rod and
Gun Club held n meeting at The
Times-Herald office last Monday
and with other business consider
ed was some changes in the game
laws. The president find secre
tary of the club wero asked to
write tho Sfate Game Commis
sion respecting sucli changes and
asked for their consideration.
Among tho changes desired are:
Uniform deer laws or open
season throughout the state.
Bounty on cougars large enough
to exterminate them.
Water fowl unchanged.
Sage hen season to open 30
days later, but remain open the
samo length of timo as at pre
Th6sc are all good suggestions
and should have the attention of
tho commission in its recommen
dations to tho legislature. The
law should be more uniform over
the slate than at present as it
gives undue advantage in some
Game Warden Mace has just
received a letter from State Game
Warden Finley in which he Bays:
Any matters which your section
of the country desires to place
before the legislature can be ad
dressed to this office and the
same will be turned over to the
Board of Fish and Game Com
missioners who have the revision
of tho laws under consideration
at time. Any changes which
your section of the state desires
will be gladly received by the
commission for their considera
tion." It would seem from this letter
the suggestions of the local Club
will meet with the proper spirit
and no doubt have some weight
The local club has been working
harmoniously with the State
Warden during tho entire season
just past and it is likely their de
mands will be granted.
J. F. Mahon and J. B. Johnson
were elected to membership in
the Club at the last meeting.
More Demonstration Farms.
Believing that the back-to-the-farm
movement can be advanced
through the establishment of
more demonstration farms, Col
onel "Bill" Hanley, the land and
cattle baron of Harney County,
is planning to work for legisla
tion to that effect "Bill" has
been in town a few days and will
remain a while and see how the
political warriors and state law
makers feel about the subject
Hanley's desire is that such a
demonstration or experimental
farm should be established in
every county in tho state and he
feels confident that tho coming
session of the Legislature will
realize the value of such a plan.
"Oregon, particularly Central
Oregon, is going to shoot ahead
farther along the lines of scienti
fic farming in the next 10 years
than any of the older states in
country," said Hanley.
'The majority of new settlers
who will locate in the interior
will start out right. By that I
mean they will educate them
selves ns to the very best scienti
fic methods of developing their
lnnd so that it will produce the
largest and best crops.
"We have been making long
strides forward in the matter of
educating tho farmers in the
latest approved methods and at
tho same time there is room for
n great deal more missionary
work of this kind. That is why
I believe we should have de
monstration farms in eveiy
county in tho state. I am going
to do everything I can to per

WEST'S CRUSADE TO BE
Governor Expected To Abk
For Laws Giving Him
A recent Salem dispatch says:
"With the time fixed for the
convening of Iho Lefcblature
rapidly approaching, the presi
dency of the Senate and speak
ership of the IIouso apparently
settled, assurances that the elec
tion of a United States Senator
will be but a mere formality, the
prediction made here by those
who have sounded the sentiment
among the Legislators is that the
big fight of the session will oc
cur when Governor West seeks
to have the Legislature enact his
Generally tho friends of the
Governor would have it appear
that tho introduction of his cru
sade to have the legislature will
decasion no clash, but they, as
well as most of the Legislators,
fully realize, say those who have
taken soundings on the subject,
mat tnese measures will be a
signal for a clash between the
Governor, and that it will be the
battle of the session.
Since his inauguration the Gov
ernor has had two dreams his
prison reform policy and his law
enforcement crusade. With the
hope of seeing these dreams ma
terialize, he has made every sac
rifice in the past, and recently
announced that to bring about
their realization he is prepared
to make every sacrifice in the
future. That declaration was
made when he declined to ex
tend clemency to the four mur
derers hanged here this month,
and the opinion voiced here is
that had the Governor not felt
that to extend clemency to them
would be to postpone the day
when capital punishment could
be abolished, and also that it
would operate as a barrier to his
law enforcement crusade.
The Govornor's crusade in
Portland clearly demonstrated,
it is claimed, that if it is to be
crowned with success and be
made state-wide in its applica
tion, his hands must be strength
ened materialy by legislation.
Portland's crusade demonstrated,
it is further asserted, that the
Governor is practically without
appointing power when it comes
to naming special prosecutors
and sheriffs to carry on his cru
sade, and that there are no laws
whereby breweries and distill
eries can be prevented from
shipping liquor from wet into
dry territory, and by which the
express and railroad companies
can be prevented from transport
Already the Governor has pre
pared a bill to give him power to
appoint special district attorneys
and sheriffs, and providing for
appropriations for the remunera
tion of them whenever they shall
be pressed into service. Con
tending that to give the Governor
authority to appoint special dis
trict attorneys and Sheriffs when
ever lie snail take the notion to
do so would be to clothe him with
the power of an autocrat, many
of the Legislators will fight the
measure to the last, declare those
who are conversant with their
feelings on the subject.
What the attitude of the Leg
islature will be with relation to
bills prohibiting the shipment of
liquor into dry territory, should
the Government ask it to pass
such a measure, as he undoubted
ly will, is problematical, it is de
clared. Many, it is believed,
would be in favor of such a mea
sure, but that it would have op
position is certain. Among other
powerful factors to wage n fight
on it would be the liquor dealers,
and possibly also the express and
In addition tho Governor will
have a lot of other legislation to
propose. He believes that tho
state should take over the Colum
bia Southern project, nnd ap
propriate money to reclaim tho
lands embraced within this pro
ject. Ho has also draftod a bill
to make the salaries of county
officials uniform and equal, and
to provide for an accounting
system for county clerks. An
other bill drafted by him relates
to county and district fairs, his
real object being, ho says, to
place appropriations made for
them on such a basis that the
usual log-rolling attendant upon
tho passago of individual appro
priation bills may bo obviated,
Ho has also drafted a bill to con
solidate all stato boards, save
thoso having jurisdiction over
educational institutions, into one
