250 Pounds of Bear Meat
Interupting the Law to Suit
Thompson’s meat market offered
an unusual and pioneer delicacy ,to
his patrons this week in the shape
of a 250 pound bear, killed last
Sunday by Mr. Ivan Murphy of
Medforfi. Mr. Murphy, Roe Smead
and Ecles Murphy were hunting a
short distance above Sweet Home
resulting in the bagging of his
bearship. This is the third bear
killed in the vicinity of Sweet Home
quite recently.
It seems a little odd that so many
judges and public officials evade the
law or interpret it to suit their pre­
judices or conveniences.
throughout the state have been
twisting the Mothers’ Pension Law
around to suit themselvefe, one of
the latest to give it a most unkind
cut being Judge Bushy of Marion
county. Here is Judge Bushy’s
idea of the law, taken from a special
dispatch to the Portland Oregonian:
County Judge Bushy, who has re­
fused to grant pensions under the
widows’ pension act passed at the
late session of the legislature, de­
clared tonight that the law was
vicious because it has a tendency to
injure widows with families instead
of assisting them.
“The widows pension law is not
only drawn up in such a way,” de­
clared the judge, “as to deny
widows any benefit, but it has a
tendency to injure the applicant.
Not long ago a woman applied for
a pension who did not need one, and
today she is worse off than ever.
She lives in Salem and has five
children. Before she made applica­
tion for a pension she worked and
supported her family better than
50 per cent of the people of Salem.
She put money in the bank and was
getting along so well under the
circumstances that her neighbors
envied her thrift. Then she heard
of the pension law and immediately'
sought to become a beneficiary of
it. Since that day she has not tried
to get along. Her neighbors tell
me that she just sits around and
waits for her pension.
“We have a ease before us of a
woman who owns a little farm near
Silverton, and if she is granted a
pension it will amount to $77 per
month. The woman advises us that
she has a bank account of $800 and
has a mining claim.
“The law in itself is vicious. It
invites laziness and carelessness
among families which formerly got
along all right. The law that has
been in effect all the time is suffi­
cient to cover all cases of poverty
that come under our jurisdiction.
We are vested with authority to
assist those who need financial as­
sistance, and this court will lend
that aid in order to keep families
together.”—Oregon Messenger.
Woman Orchardist Grew Fine Peach Crop
Claimed to be the finest peaches
ever harvested in Linn county, Miss
Helen V. Crawford completed har­
vesting her crop near Lebanon of
500 bushels yesterday.
It is claimed that Miss Crawford,
who is a resident of near Lebanon,
has the distinction of being the only
lady horticulturalist in the county
and has made a thorough success of
raising the fine crop.—Albany Demo­
