If a wharf or other permanent moor
ing place is to be provided, it ought
to be at a point available all the year
round. This matter was considered by
Mr. C. D. Moore anil myself alfer we
hail bought the Coo land in 1907,
Where could we provide a permanent
landing for every season of the year:
Ho thought it should be directly north
of First street in your City. 1 call

piles at low water to the northward

the latter was the shorter distance and

still supported the duo north location,

In conclusion let me say that to my
mind the solution of the matter will be
a wharf and warehouse at or near the
present steamboat landing, with street
cars running on a direct road between
such landing and the business section
of vour City. 1 assure you I have
taken great interest in'this mutter and
would be glad to co-operte with you in

Vrsistent report from all over the
tate have reached the othee of Game
arden William S. Finlev. to 'the
fleet that the laws prohibiting the
hunting of deer with hounds are being
violated. At the present tune, depu
ties are hastening to the various
grounds where deer are known to
gather, with explicit irstructions tu
arrest such viulaturs and prosecute
them to the full extent of the law.
Mr. Finely states that he will overlook
no opportunity to punish deer hunters
no use hounds or other dogs lor the
pursuit of deer, as the extinction of
this animal is assured unless strenuous
measures are adopted immediately.
With less than TOO antelope remain
ing in Oregon, evidence has reached
the ollice of Mr. Finley that a sheep
owner of Southeastern Oregon has
systematically planned the killing of
many of these animals during the last
two winters. lhe object of this
unlawful attempt, it is said, is to
provide bait for coyotes, lhe carcass
of the antelope is poisoned where it
falls, which, when eaten by the coyote,
onseiiuently destroys that animal.
Deputites are now Beeking exact
evidence, with the intention of dis
covering the guilty party, when
lihgent prosecution will follow. The
identity of the sheep owner is, as yet.
unknown, although the otlieers are on
the trail of the man, who will be made
rslriking example of the seriousness
of this infraction of the law.

known fruit sections of the United'
States decided to lot-ad I n Hood River,

William A. Combs sold to Frank
Menefee, of Portland, the ten acrt
tract recently purchased by him in
Willow Flat. The place was purchased
by Mi. Combs last fall from Noah
Hone. He intended to make the loca
tion his permanent home. Mining in
terests in Alaska, however, demand
his attention and ho was forced to sell
in order to leave for the far north and
look after his property there. Mr.
Combs says, however, that Hood River
has won his heart and that he will dis
pose of his mining property and return
here later and remain. "Hood River
orchards are far better investments
than Alaska gold mines," he said.
The tract, which is all set in bearing
trees, is considered one of the best
p aces in the Valley. Whilethe con
sideration of the transaction bus not
been made public, it is understood that
the land sold for one of the best prices
received in recent transactions.
G. Y Fwdards & Co. also report the
sale of 20 acres of the Mart. Raud
tract to Dr. J. Gutherie, of Valparaiso,
Neb. The purchaser is a boyhood
friend of W. J. Collier, who bought

Huskey and Jake McCowan, fruit
growers or tlie iviosier district, says a
dispatch to the Oregonian, returned
Thursday from a week s hunting trip
on Eagle creek in the mountains hack
of Cascade Locks. A strange story is
related by the hunters. On the first
day out a seven prong buck was killed
and camp was then pitched on Eagle
creek, the deer being hung up to a
tree. The hunters thoughtlessly
leaned their guns against the tree and
retired for the night a few yards away.
lhey were awakened afoout daybreak,
they say, by the cracking of the
underbrush and Dunsmore sprang for
his gun. but at the same instant a
large black bear faced him, evidently
in search ot food and so determined in
getting a taste of venison that Hit
hunters were all routed. It was not
until late that afternoon that bruin
left bis find and permitted the hunters
to secure their gun.
