Fire Menace is Lessened;
Some Sets Reported;
Arrests Result.

Jim Cash Makes Best Time;
Sport Enjoyed by Many.
The prayer of the disappointed
huntsman has been answered. Tues
day morning it rained, and he who
has blamed his luck on the tinder
like nature of the woods, if he fail
to bring in his buck this week end,
will have to seek a new alibi. From
the talk about town, it is evidenced
that a majority of the luckless will
again make their exodus for the
brush in hopes that the dampening
of the forest carpet will deaden
their approach, enabling them to
stalk the cunning horned denizens
more closely.
Dryness of the timberlands has
not been a source of Irritation to
hunters alone. Forest guards have
been on edge, lest fire should steal
its way among them and become
loosed, to make the unresisting dry
ness of the woods an easy prey for
conflagration beyond proportions
possible for human control. That
hazard is lessened now, with humid
ity raised by the rain.
Not Easy to Fix Blame.
Reports of man-caused fires, due
to the influx of hunters, have been
heard. A rumor has a lhat 40 fires
were set in the Desolation country,
resulting in 13 arrests. One fire in
the Kelley prairie section is said
to have been caused from dropping
a lighted cigarette, resulting in a
fine being imposed.
With the woods full of hunters,
crossing each others tracks, it is
not an easy matter to locate respon
sible parties. In the instance last
cited, the parties accused feel they
were not to blame. They had killed
a buck, had drawn it, and some of
them had smoked at the scene.
They had taken the drawn animal
out on a horse. A couple of hours
after they had left the scene, a fire
started. Forest guards saw where
the buck had been killed and drawn,
followed the horse tracks. Seemed
simple to locate responsible party.
However, the men accused feel cer
tain they extinguished their smokes.
Other hunters had passed that way
In the Interim, they believe, who
might have been to blame. Forest
guards, who know the extreme dan
ger, say too much precaution can
not be taken, and they believe the
true sportsman will follow closely
the campflre and smoking code.
Not Luck, Jim Says.
Russell Moore of Lexington is the
hunter with the best luck to date.
He brought in to the Peoples Hard
ware company this week the larg
est buck slain since the inception
of the company's big buck contest
It weighed in at 254 pounds, exceed
ing by one pound the previous larg
est horned deer of record, killed by
Elmer Hlnton three years ago.
Jim Cash probably has the record
for getting a buck in quick time.
He went out early Sunday morning
and returned by 9 o'clock with his
kill. It wasn't all luck either, Jim
says. He had been grouse hunting
there several times before, and had
seen the sly old fellow. By work
ing the law of averages, Jim figur
ed, he might one time arrive on the
scene in time to get a shot before
he Vas discovered.
Other kills were reported this
week. The party of which S. H.
Shannon and "Shorty" Hudson were
members brought in a buck. Merle
Venable hauled in a couple, bagged
by his father-in-law and an uncle
from Portland. F. B. Nickerson ac
counted for one; Frances Doherty
got another. Ray Wise is certain
he killed one, but on tracking it
down found other hunters In pos
session. Charles Latourell is re
ported among the fortunate.
Good Time, Anyway.
Not all the boys have been so
lucky, but report enjoying the out
door life just the same. A party
that went out from the Sweek cabin
on Willow creek Sunday morning
included Gay M. Anderson, Ed Ben
nett, Charles Cox, Hollls Bull, B. R.
Patterson, Spencer Crawford and
C. L, Sweek. Another party going
out from town Friday afternoon In
cluded D. A. Wilson, W. R. Poulson,
Earl Gordon, Russell Pratt and Jas
per Crawford. Monte Hedwald and
Gerald Slocum hunted Sunday.
Charles Swindig and Henry Rob
ertson Jr. were seen on their way
across the saddle beyond the head
of Skinner creek Sunday. H. A.
Schulz and son Max spent a week
in the timber. Dr. and Mrs. A. D.
McMurdo and Mr. and Mrs. L. Van
Marter returned the first of the
week from a hunt started the first
of tho season. J. O. Turner and
Leonard Schwarz went out last eve
ning In the hope of bagging a buck
or two today.
Rev, and Mrs. B. Stanley Moore
of All Snlnts Episcopal church will
go to Hardman every Friday after
noon to conduct church and Sunday
Bchool services.

Walter Luckman was in from the
Lena ranch this forenoon. There
was some rain out that way this
week, but not sufficient to be of any
great benefit. Range conditions are
such now that rain in quantities is
badly needed. The county over
stands In need of a heavy down
pour, and now that the harvest is
all over and no one is to be incon
venienced thereby we have decided
to order this general rain; so look
for it to arrive any day now.

While sponsored by the Oregon

tivities, Mr. Chamberlin explained to
the meeting. Any legitimate health
work comes within the scope of the
county association, and as an aid to
the county nurse is expected to do
much to make her work more effec
tive. Especially is this true in epi
demic control, and assistance in this
work was asked by Miss Stallard.
Loan closets may be established
from which anyone may secure
nursing equipment not ordinarily
found in the home, and pre-natal
and baby clinics may be establish
ed It is urged by the officers that
everyone in the county join the as
sociation. No membership fee is
charged, the work of the associa
tion being financed from the pro
ceeds of the Christmas seal sale, a
large portion of which is left in the
county to be administered by the
local association. In other counties
in the state where health associa
tions have been in existence for sev
eral years a great amount of good
is accomplished, and with a strong
membership built up here it is ex
pected this county will derive much

Senator Bailey Declares
For Law Enforcement
Portland, Ore., Spt 23. "Who
ever says the prohibition law is a
failure has done a lot of forgetting
in the last 12 years," declared Sena
tor Edward F. Bailey, democratic
candidate for governor, speaking
on Law Enforcement" at a W. C.
T. U. meeting held at Hinsdale
Memorial Baptist church here Tues
day afternoon.
"When we had the liquor laws,
breweries controlled the govern
ments of cities," he asserted. "Now,
moral, social and economic condi
tions are much better. I am for 100
per cent enforcement of the prohi
bition laws, and for strengthening
of those laws when and wherever
possible. As I said in my platform,
Issued before either of my two op
ponents were in the race, prohibi
tion is morally and economically
sound; It must and should be en
forced. If elected governor I prom
ise that I will so enforce the law.
Further, I will appoint as enforce
ment officials only men who will
obey the law."
There is much need for better
cooperation between county federal
and state officials, he said, as well
as a new campaign, of education
against the evils of strong drink.
Senator Bailey reiterated his
ideas for a readjustment of Ore
gon's antiquated tax laws. "The
burden of state tax should be re
moved from homes and farms and
other types of real and personal
property," he declared. "The income
tax will do it."
Public ownership of electric util
ities has proved itself, when adopt
ed on a sound basis and operated
on a sound plan, he continued. Con
servation of hydro-electric power
sources, for public purposes, is
something he pledged himself to
long ago, he concluded.
By twos and threes the valiant
hunters are returning, some empty
handed, one brave hunter bearing
marks of having been attacked and
run over by an evil mannered buck,
some with wonderful stories of the
deer they killed but failed to find,
and some with fine animals as proof
of their marksmanship. Mayor Ma
son returned with two bear. The
Joe Gibson party brought home
four deer. R. W. Brown and Roy
Lieuallen each have a deer to their
credit Noel and Walter Dobyns
each returned wlth.a fine buck.
Cleo Drake and John Oochran who
were In on Hog Flats trapping
while waiting for the hunting sea
son to open, were out of luck. They
returned without deer and had lit
tle success at trapping. The Ber-
gevin and Cochran party which was
at Desolation, report fair luck. Wal
ter Cochran of Arlington was one
of the party who brought out a
buck. Raymond Fletcher is one of
the younger hunters deserving spe
cial mention. He killed a fine six-
point buck weighing 222 pounds.
Many hunters are still in the moun
tains and some plan on going later.
