That a banking connection is

Gun Club Opposed to
More Game Presenter
A meeting of the Harnev
County Rod & Gun Club was held
at The Times-Herald office last
evening and the matter of chang
ing the by-laws to provide for a
secretary to be paid. The affairs
of the Club arc to voluminous to
expect a secretary to care for
them without compensation. The
secretary wsb instructed to notify
the membership of the annual
meeting next month and add that
the by-laws would be amended at
that time to provide annual dues
in order to pay the secretary.
The matter of a deer park or
refuge where deer would not be
molested and where they could
breed was discussed and there
was a decided opposition to any
more game preserves in this sec
tion by the members present.
They think we have laws pro
tecting the game in this state
ana 11 properly enforced there is
little danger of the deer becom
ing extinct for many years. We
have a large port ion of this coun
try now in game preserves and
the members believe we should
not be compelled to forego more
of our hunting grounds for such

The Governor Imposed On.
County Attorney Sizemore has
instructed Sheriff Richardson to
close the pool hall on Sundays.
Gov. West received a letter sign
ed by Mrs. Lizzie Lippind written
from Burns stating the pool hall
was kept open on Sunday and
that there was gambling going
on there. As a matter of fact
any one acquainted with the pro
prietors or has observed the man
ner in which the pool hall is con
ducted knows there is no gambl
ing allowed there.
The name signed to the letter
is certainly an assumed one as no
one of that name is known here.
The governor wrote the county
attorney to see that the law was
complied with and he has turned
the letter over to the sheriff.
The pool hall will be closed in
complience with the request, but
it isn't pleasant to think we have
people who will misrepresent
matters to accomplish such an
