State Realized Over $117,
000 From Licenses
in 19 13.
Portland, Jan. 5. - Hunters and
anglers of the State, of Oregon paid
$117,592 for the privilege of getting
game from the woods and fish from
the streams of Oregon in ,1913, ac
cording to the figures issued yester
day bv William L. Finley, state
game warden.
Of this sum $48,020 was for hunt
ing" licenses alone, 44,748 for ang
ling licenses and $24,824 for the
combination licenses at $2 each.
In addition hunters from outside
the stale paid $1520 as non-resident
fees. 1 Another big item was $6775
for fines, imposed by the various
courts for yiolations of the game
' Of the last item, half in each case
went to the general fund of the
county and the other half was turn
ed over to the Fish and Game Com
mission. This in a measure, explains why
hunters say that.1913 .was the poor
est hunting season they .ever had,
for there were almost 25 per cent

"The War Correspondents."
A big spectacular four reel war
drama that certainly out rivals any
film-dealing with the horrors of the
battlefield. See the blowing up of
the railroad bridge, the train plung
ing into the river beneath, a theatre
on fire and demolished by a shell
from a high pawer gun. An aero
plane, scouting over the enemy's
camp is destroyed by a shot from a
rapid fire gun. A dance 'n the
Sultan's Harem is disturbed by the
invading army. An automobile runs
the gauntiett of a heavy gun fire,
is struck and snu -shed by a shell, its
occupanN fleeing for ieir lives. A
gigantic battleship is sunk by a sub
merged mine. These are some of
the hair raising events contained in
this feature that has probably more
action in the four rce's than any
previous drama of this nature ever
! presented in moving pictures. Don't

Last Camp Closed near Acme
Bad Weather Stops Work
On Railroad Tunnels.
FLORENCE, Or., Jan, 5-The
West says: . .
Scarpelli Bros., who have a con
tract for grading on the railroad near
Point Terrace have finished their
work and paid of! their men.
This is the last of the camps to
close down between Acme andjMap
leton'. ',
Witn the exception of a little fill
ing after the bridges are built, there
remains only two- snort pieces to
grade between Eugeae and. Acme,
One piece is at Mapleton an 1, the
other is at Point Terrace mill.
Work on Tunnel no. 3 on the rail
road between South Slough and Map
le Creek was suspended Wednesday
eyening. We have not learned when
operations will start again. Camp 4
at the north end of the tunnel was
closed s week or two ago, but work
was continued at camp, 5 till the end
of December.
Part of the supplies were taken to
Camp '4. and left in charge of a
watch rnan. The rest were taken' to
Gardiner by teams yesterday and will
be used by the" crews "in that viciaityi
On account of bad roads the con
tractors have found it almost im
possible to get timbers jto the tunnel
as fast as they are needed. The
gronnd at the enttance has moved
some and this made it necessary to
use more timber than was expected
at first'.
Bert Alfred Tnorn the son of Mr.
and Mrs. T. E. Thorn, died Satur
day of diphtheria. The boy was
six years and seven months old at
the time of his death. He was a
bright boy and was a great favorite
with his friends, Mr. and Mrs.
Thorn will have the sincere sym
pathy.of a large circle of friends in
their bereavement.
Regarding the diphiheria, it
might he added, that so far as
known no other cases outside of the
Thorn family have developed, and
those who have been exposed are
being inoculated with the serum
treatment which renders them abso
lutely immune from the disease,
consequently if the, proper care is
'taken there is no danger of the dis

day by automobile owners to em
