Mark SiddaO and Charles
; Leitk Eat Reindeer Meat
and Shoot Straight
Mark Siddall, president of the Salfta
Bod' and Gun club, returned to thi
city last night after sharing reindeer
venaioa and sharing honors wits some
or tne most ardent sportsmen ia Ue
state at Portland daring the recent ses
sion of the Oregon Sportsmen ' leogae
whieh was held ia that city. There were
300 present at the famous reindeer ban
quet and for the greater part- of the
dinner it was their first taste of the
deer from the far north. Mr. BiddaJl
say reindeer meat i slightly darker
and a little Com see grained than the
venison that roam the hill ef Oregon
but the flavor of the wild things te the
meat of the deer that i the work ox
of the Esquimaux.
In the shoot held Bandar Mr. fiiddau
tied for second plaee with aa average
of 94 per cent and the first honor were
carried off by Charte Leith, of Wood-
burn, who broke 90 oat of JOB clay
After New Year Mr. Siddall say a
membership campaign will be started
by the Capital City Bod and Gun cfnb
and it is hoped to secure at least 300
member. It i proposed to make the
membership more general throughout
the eounty than in the post and. to se
cure a strong' delegation to work fox
more trout fry in the Marion comity
streams. In this county are found some
of the finest trout streams in the west
but no effort have been made in the
past to have the stream well stocked
with trout fry from the state hatcher
ies. Last fall a carload of young trout
was distributed ia this eounty but there
is still room for several more of the
wiggly little minnow that grow into
the gnmey mountain trout.
At the sportsmen's meeting the sen
timent was expressed that the hunting
law sbould be amended to prohibit the
shooting of china hens and it ia even
possible that the shooting of china
cocks may be stopped in the near fu
ture. The Salem Rod and Gnn club will pnt
on a shoot tomorrow and about 15
Portland trap shooters have promised
to attend if the weather is fair. Half
a dozen professional may be en the
grounds and Miss Gladys Reid, the
daughter of Jim Jieid, will be here to
participate in the shoot. A special 50
bird race sweepstake will be put on
and a number of turkeys will be pot
up as prizes tor unnstmns dinners.
Would Supply Munitions
For Chined Rebellion
San Francisco, Dec. 22. Details of
a plot to supply tho revolutionary par
ty of China with large supplies of mu
nitions may be bared as the result of
an investigation of the steamer Catan
ia's cargo, held up by Port Collector
Davis. lie halted the shipment, con
signed to Yokohama, after ber officers
asked permission to trnnsfer it to an
other orient bound ship.
At first, it was thought the muni
tions were going to Russia but with a
revolution reported on in China, tiie
case may assume a different aspect.
Customs officials now think the cargo
was destined ultimately for China, that
it was perhaps only one of many, and
that it was sent early so that rebels
against the overturn of the republic
must be prepared for speedy develop
ments. The explosives came originally from
Puget Sound on the steamer F. H. Loop.
Tho manager of tho Catania line said
today the goods were vonsigned "to
order," hence it is thought here that
tho "order" nt the other end might
come from Chinese revolutionists.
