WAR ON WILD ANIMALS
Trained Hunters Employed In Oregon
Forest Reserves to Destroy Them
i Special to The News
Portland Or Dpc 13 BUler waifaro
Is to be waged against predatory wild
tnlmals In the Pacific northwest by the
National forest service which has just
made an appropriation of 1350 for hir
ing professional hunters for this section
of the country This amount has been
allotted to the Wallowa Whitman Mal
hear Fremont Umatllla and Dcsohutcs
national forests In Oregon and tho
Wensha and Wenntchce national for I
ests In Washington
The object of securing hunters Is
not only to protect stock grazing on the
forest reserves under permit but to
safeguard game animals such as Jeer
elk and mountain sheep as well as
game birds Cougar lynx and other
predatory animals thrive In the na
tional forests and are today a great
menace to the growth of game herds
Cougar and lynx are regarded as a
greater menace to game than are hunt
ers and elk calves and the young of
other animals arc the prey of tho
I
savage wildcats
Eight professional hunters have boon I
employed the national forests of tho I
state at Intervals during the past year I
and they have killed a total of 501 coy
otes 21 bears 8 wolves 21 wildcats and
3 lynx Not only has the destruction
of these animals by the government
hunters been a great saving to the
stockmen but to farmers living near
the national forests whose poultry and
domestic stock suffer from the raids of
wild animals

SENATOR RAYNER
ARRAIGNS ZELAYA
Unsparing in His Denunciation
Terming Him One r the
Criminals of the Age
WOULD HAVE HIM PUNISHED
Most Despicable Figure That HIS Ever
Appeared Among Central Ameri
can Impostors and Usurpers
Washington Dec 13 Speaking to his
resolution offered In the senate lost Fri
diy authorizing the president of the
United States to take all necessary
stepa to apprehend President Zelaya ot
Nlcnraguo and bring him to trial on a
charge of murder of Grace and Cannon
the Americans recently executed In Nc
amgtta Senator Rayncr of Maryland
today addressed the senate at length
Senator Rayners speech stirring and
denunciatory In tone and characterized
by dramatic fervor was an unsparing
arralgnmen of Zelnya whom ho desig
nated a one of the criminals of the
ageWhat
What I am concerned In tow said
Senator Raynor Is not the question of
the belligerent rights of the revolution
ists or In cape of their success their
recognition either as the defacto or the
dcjure government but In tho speedy
apprehension and punishment of Ze
laya
MORE THAN A DDSPBRtVDO
This desperado Is everything the sec
retary of state says about him and a
geat deal mOro I the country know
what Is known In official circles In ref
erence to his general depravity It would
regard the secretarys communication
as exceedingly temperate
I have watched for years the
revolutionary history of Central
America and am familiar with the
career of 1 great many of the im
posters and usurpers and the grotes
que and motloy leaders that have
sprung from their chaotic Institutions
but Zolaya Is probably the most des
picable figure that has ever been In
their midst
I ho were simply a highwayman
wc might identify him if he were
simply a tyrant who oppressed the
people for the purpose of robbing
them we might particularize him
If ho wero a usurper who was only
holding on to power so long as there
was any money In the treasury to
steal or any further territory that
ho could sack for private plunder we I
could assign him a proper place In the
ranks of some of his predecessors and
It he were purely an assassin who
re rded murder ns legitimate pro
fession lhroush rtrtBHTh3neotrlfr > do
spoil hit victims of their possessions
until the time come for him to lice
unt
from the hands of retributive Justice
It would be easy also for anyone
acquainted with the political history
of Nicaragua t classify him
A CRIMINAL WITHOUT A PEER
He Is however all of these things
combined In the school of corrup
tion dishonor perlldlly and crime he
viands without 1 peer and exhibits In
one glow of associated harmony the
pride of every model and the perfec
tion of every master
I have been reliably Informed that
the vices or his private life are more
Infamous in their indescribable details
than the Iniquities of his public career
Such a creature as this deserves the
execration of mankind
Now as to the culminating Infamy
of his administration trampling upon
every instinct of humanly violation
ot unversal law In defiance of those
precepts of the International code that
have been recognized ever since the
night of barbarism receded before thu
rays of civilization he has put to tor
ture and then to death two American
citizens who were not guilty of trea
son who rew not spies but oet
had captured as prisoners of war in
the army of the revolutionists
This act was not only the act of a
lend but was an Insult la the honor
of this republic and cannot remain un
avenged
It Is absolutely preposterous for us
to talk about Indemnity Indemnity is
no recompense for murder I Is said
we ought to break off official communi
cation with Ms accredited representa
tives We have already done that and
that amounts to nothing and 11 mat
ter of absolute unconcern to him
WAR NOT NECESSARY
Then It is said we ought to declare
war against Nicaragua I think that
Is unnecessary
This government Is a cowardly gov
ernment If It does not make a example
of Zelaya before the eyes of the civilized
world This case will not admit of any
trlnnR or concessions I two Amen
can citizens have been murdered by
Zelaya thou lie must be made to pay
tho penalty of his crime
crme
Once spread before the American
people the details of the execution and
our people will rise in arms and demand
retribution They have not yet fully
absorbed the significance of this deed
l Zelaya had the right to sentence
there men to death and execute them
In cold blood then we must acknowl
edge that right and recognize it before
the nations of the world
IF ZELAYA IS GUILTY
If he did not have that right this
government Is his accuser and If ho Is
guilty he must b awarded the doom
and fate that he deserves so that every
tyrant on this earth In every national
ity under the fun and In every govern
ment large or email and especially
these dictators In several of these Cen
tral American states who have received
every favor and consideration at the
hands of tho United States to whom
has been extonded tho official hospital
ity of our land and who in rettifn
therefor havo exhibited to ua at times
tho bitterest hatred and visited upon
jour citizens the mOlt cruel Indignities
and outrages shall be told once and for
ever that our flag follows our citizens
wherever they g and that when an as
sassination like this occurs tho male
factor must take his place like any
other culprit at the bar of criminal
Justice and must answer for tho deed
with his liberty or his life
The resolution which he offered was
not n declaration of war said Senator
Raynor He desired his resolution be
considered a separate proportion from
any action that might he taken with
reference to the state of government

DISASTER THREATENED
For a time after tile lire stalled at
530 oclock yesterday afternoon It
seemed certain that there would be a
repetition of the disaster of 1S9S when
the heart of the city was wiped out by
0 fire which began but a few dooms
from the present one Soon after the
fire department arrived there were fully
2000 persons standing In the street al
though the temperature was below
zero
The fire started In the boiler room
of the Maple hal building Main street
between Third and Fourth streets I
did not take long after the fire started
for the building to be totally destroyed
At the time the fire started there weroa
number of guests on the top floor ol the
building which was used as a hotel
Many of those wore employed at night
and had to be awakened As a result
some of them made their escape to the
street clad In only night apparel Al
though a number of people were hurt
no one was seriously injured
FRAME CONSTRUCTION
Maple Hall was 1 threestory fnune
building used as an office store build
ing and hotel On account of the slope
of the hill at the back the building was
practically four stories high The top
floor was leased to Mr and Mrs John
C Hayes who conducted a hotel The
second hoer of the building was occu
pied by Frank Fountain as a jewelry
store On the first floor was a saloon
run by Campbell and Hanson and In
the basement W H Miller had a danco
hall
hallThere
There arc a number of theories
heard in Park City today as to the
cause of the fire Some believe that the
furnace In the boiler room was filled
with coal and that filling with gas It
exploded and started tho fire Another
theory Is that hot ashes or coals ten
upon waste and from that ran up one
of the woolen partitions I Is asserted
that the boiler room was poorly con
structed and tho chimneys might have
been the cause of the fire
Among the first to appear at tho fro
wn W II MJller Ho was In a sa
loon 0 few doors away when someone
railed to him that his place was on
lire Ho ran to the place and with the
assistance of several other men at
tempted to remove his piano Tho In
strument had Just been started toward
the door when the partition between the
boiler room and tho basement burst
boier anl
Into the dance hall The flood of flames
shot up between the partitions and
wore roaring to the top floor
SOME GUESTS SLEEPING
The men dropped the piano and ran to
the top floor to get the people out I
was while engaged tit this that several
wero Injured Some of those who had
been engaged In night work and were
asleep were awakened with considera
ble difficulty Everyone got out of the
building safely although no clothing or
valuables belonging to the guests were
caved
Fire Marshal George W Morris was
of
on the scene early and on account
the good work accomplished by the
firemen the city was saved from a
heavy loss As It was four buildings
wore destroyed To the north of Maple
wel
pie hall were two buildings a notion
store and saloon and t the south wan
the Jafford saloon which was de
stroyed
J P Langford manager of the Min
ers hospital and secretary of the Min
ers union wasted no time In having
all persons Injured taken to the hos
pital tit once
About the only person to save any
thing in Maple hal was Frank Foun I
tain As soon as the Jeweler heard
the fir roaring below he throw all his
most valuable Jewelry Into a case and
The
shoved It out of the window
case being unusually heavy did not
break and the valuables were easily
cared for
The most thrilling experience was
1
fS
that of John C Hayes He stayed In
the hotel until the last guest had gone
and then reached the second floor
1001
Finding that escape was cut off there
ho climbed out on the electric sign
In front While the firemen and spec
tators sere getting a matress for him
to drop on he decided to let go He
dropped to the hard Icy pavement
and a a result was badly shaken up
Ho was taken to the hospital and will
bo out in a few days
Robert Hanley was one of tho last
roomers to leave the place and his
hands and face were burned In so do
IngWhile 0
While endeavoring to save his trunk
which was In tho hall way N K
WatkIns a miner was quite severely
burned about the hands and face
COLLINS BADLY HURT
Tho most severely Injured was Wil
liam Collins a delivery man for tho
Park City Delivery company While
posting he noticed the fire and started
In to help take what could be saved
out of the building Ho ran down the
hall nil was soon almost blinded
In the dense smoke In reaching about
he ran his hand through n window
The breaking class cut his right ar
tery ant he lost considerable blood
Ho was taken to the hospital where
the injured wrist was operated upon
this morning uIon
I was reported here today that two
Swedish women guests at the hotel
Jumped from the window In the rear
but no confirmation of this can be se
cured
The 16 members of the Corlanton
company were guests at tho Maple
hal but luckily beat the fire by two
3nda half hours The members of
the company had left the hotel at
3 oclock In the afternoon
In 1S98 Park City was visited with
the worst fire in Us history At that
time the fire was caused by lighting
a fire In a range by means of coal
oil I started In a hotel In the Har
rington building which was conduct
ed by Harry Freeman This was five
doors north of where the Maple hall
b ldlnC stood At that time 40 busi
ness houses were destroyed as well
as 150 dwellings I

SHEEP OWNERS CONVINCED

Xcerobnclllosls
State Veterinarian A C Young has
returned from the Kellon country I
where he went to Inspect the sheep
herds there In general and the buck
herd of Kuchlcr Fell In particular
He found on tho train several big
sheepmen from Ogden who had not
believed In the reports about necro
baclllosls and held the danger was ex
aggerated Dr Young to convince
them of the serious character ot the
situation persuaded them to Inspect
the affected herds with him They
then found the sick animals In such n
dreadful condition that they were per
suaded they were wrong and are now I
ready to cooperate heartily with the
state in the elimination of the disease
About 60 per cent of the buck herd has
