DEER HUNTERS BEFORE COURT Ijuv Violators Draw Fines In Justice Hazen's Court. Charged with running deer with dogs end not having their kill prop erly tagged Christopher H. Fowler nnd Albert E. Melrotto were brought before Justice Hazen Wedneaday by Game Warden Brown. The deer hunters entered a prea of guilty U. the charges and wore assessed a fine of $25 each and costs on e-.ch of the churges preferred against them, which gave them a total fine of $50 each. They paid the fines. The arrests were made on the big Clatskanle river, below the old Du pont place, by Chief Warden Clark, Deputy Brown and Deputy era... The game wardens department Is making it troublesome fnr againRt game laws to get Uy with viuiuuons. IN HURRY FOR DINNER SPEED COP NABS 'EM (Astoria Budget) To reduce the forest fire risks to a minimum and thereby cur.servo the vuluable timber of Clatsop county lo cated in the various reserves from destruction hy fires started from cr.ro lossness on tho part of campers in leaving fires smouldering when the break camp, E. W. McLean, district lire warden of Clatsop county has con"elved a most ur.io.uo as well ui practical plan. - ' IcLeun without consulting any body except these directly Interested, and by his own initiative, Is cle-irinb a 10-ncro camping ground at Fish hawk Fulls, located in tho Nohnlem valley this sido of Jewell, about 27 miles from Astoria, which is free for use by motor parties ard others camping in the big woods thero. Mc Lean expects to go further thua mett ly clearing the tract and will install tables for th.i use of campers,- and toilets will be constructed for thel convenience, whilo r.mplo parking space for automobiles will be proviu ed. - Above Jewell, on the road to Mist, McLean has already had a tract clear ed which is proving most popular with motorists who have occasion to camp along the scenic Nehnlen. valley enroute between here and Portland and a two-acre camp ground Is to be cleared at the Groat place, 14 miles from Seaside on the Hamlet rpuil. These forest reserve camping grounds uro expected to not only reduce the number of fires started by campers but to educate the campers thomsolves to bo careful of fire when in the timber, reducing timber de struction to a minimum in a short time. When A. W. Norblad, of Astoria, state senator from Clatsop county, heard of tho good work being dont. hy McLean, he thought sq much of its originality and effectiveness In re ducing forest fire risks, that he ex pects to bring the mnttor to the at tention of the legislature at its next session, with a view to having legis lation enacted to put n uniform sys tem of camping grounds into effect n all the forested areas of the state. It doesn't pay. to be In too big a hurry even When you are in a hurry to get to dinner, that is if you are traveling along the paved highway through Columbia county, and even though the temptation for a nice dinner at the Portland hotel Is what you are thinking about, and K. b.

They also had golf ball, and golf sticks and the only minus quantity was a caddy. We havo heard that the caddy was the man who carried the stick and if they didn't have him with them, he haa been with them, that Is if Speed Cop Weigle can be called the "man with the big stick." He had already called on them and that is why Er vin was looking for Judge Hazen to explain that he was going a "little more than 30 per." The Judge lis tened to his story and then assessed the usual fine.

He hud been in poor health for several months, and this is thought to have been the motive for the shoot ing. . Deconsed was about 60 years of age and had resided In the Mayger section for many year. He is sur vived by a widow and several children. Stone, A. L., Sullivan, Russell, Suth erland, C. P., Svendson, H. C. Turbell, Foster D., Thatcher, J. H Thompson, Frank, Thorp, J.

A supplemental list of names will be attuched hereto from time to time ns returns are filed. Last week the price cf travel went up 20 per cent and freight rates ad vanced 25 per cent. This means chat millions of dollars will be added to the cost of the commoditios con sumod in America, estimated at 2 por cent of tho entire cost of living. As very llttlo freight comu. to "t. Helons the effect of this order is in direct so far as merchandise pur chased hero is concerned, but on our ojtgolng shipments It will amount to no smr.ll sum and as this is added to the ultimate cost of our rroducts to the people who consume, thorn, so 1b the order felt o-i all freight which is destined for ultimate consumption here. The travel order amounts to rais ing the price per mils from 3 cents to 3.6 cents for every milo traveled. MONDAY A HOLIDAY; NO COUNCIL MEETING Last Monday being Labor Day, and therefore, a holiday, there was no meeting of the city council. At taw meeting next Monday evening re monstrances against assessments lev led on property for the Nob Hill screet work will be heard, and a right lively session will probably result. Besides the written remonstrances on file, basing predictions on pre vious meetings, It Is more than likely that a lot of verbal protests will be showered upon -the defenseless heads ot the council members. Whether the council will stajd pat on the as sessment as levied is a matter yet to bo determined. HIGHWAY ENGINEER VISITS ST. HELENS C. C. Kelly, assistant engineer ot .he State Highway department, with Mrs. Kelly, passed through St. Hel ens Friday morning last enroute to Tillamook via Astoria. Mr. Kelly made a short visit to Ihe Mist office and enquired as to iow work was progressing on the ,t. Helens-Pittsburg road. He takes more than r. passing ir.torost lu the road, since he was the engineer who located it. Mr. Kelly was pleased .o leurn that work was progressing on the road and stated that It was one of the most important connecting link roads In the state, and .when oompletod, would be ot Inestimable benefit to the people ot the Nehalem valley and those on the river front, lis woll as to the thousands who :ake the highway and Inland route in coming and going from the me tropolis to the Beacoast and Astoria.

PENDER PARDON B1M0IEST Man Twice Found Gultty by Colum bia County Juries for Murder of Mrs. Daisy Wehrman and Son In September, 191 1, May be Pardoned From the Oregon Ian the Mist learns that efforts am helm. m.Hi n secure a pardon for John A. Pender wno is serving a lire sentence for the murder cf Mrs. Frank Wehrman The murder waa rnmrnlttod An about September 4th, 1911, and Mrs. TYoiuujttu ana ner son met death U. their cabin in Apple Valley r.bout four miles west of Bcnnnnnao Pan der was twice tried and twice cou vicioq r.na tne supreme court upheld the decision of tho lower mnrt rirfw. ornor West commuted the sentence to life imprisonment. The expert on criminology who U writing the articles for the Oregon Ian. has fastened tho irrlma nn nna simpleton, Slerks, who is in the in sane asyium. Blerlts confessed to having committed the deed and then retracted tha confeaRlnn t.itti. credence was placed in his confes sion. A Difference In Opinion. The Oreeonlan haa Vlrfliallv elnar. ed Pender of the crime. There are some in Columbia county who are fa miliar with the case and heard the ovldenco who believe Pender to be innocent and tbere are many who believe him to be eulltr. Amnna- thA many are two juries, 24 men who after listening to all the evidence in troduced and the pleas ot the at torneys rendered a verdict of guilty. ino many wno have been intei viewed trv the Mini want Pm1 go free if he is Innocent but they claim tnat li the Orogonlan or some criminal expert has discovered new evidence, that It ahould ha a-l f An tt the publie and they protest that such evidence snoum come before a Jury instead oi being submitted to the public through the medium ot a uewspaper Crime a Brutal One. The crime which John A. Pendei was convicted ot was one ot the most fiendish and horrible crimes ever committed in this or any other coun ty. A lonely woman was attacked and killed and to cover up the crime, me perpetrator oi it klllea the Inno cent babe. Circumstantial evidence pointed to Pender. He was arrest ed, twice tried and twice convicted. The case was stubbornly fought. The defendant was given the benefit of uiery uuuui una uau iwo lair trials, . therefore the people In this commun- ' uy, so tar as the Mist can learn, . want to know why the case should be ro opened unless new evidence has been discovered. A Protest Is Probable. From the conversation of many, it is considered likely that a protest wm w aeuk iu uuveruor uicou ask ing that he do not pardon Pendei unless more proof of his innocence ' s given than the confession of an insane person. The evidence is on file as well as :he opinion of the supreme court. and it Is thought that the governor i. . 1 1 ....... 1 1..

For several years there has been .in organized effort on the part of a wen organizea ooay, to get fen der out of prison. The parties re-' spuumuiti lur i-uiei euuri, pruiess to believe Pender innocent and from the uregonian s several stories, tno. have drawn a perfectly natural con clusion, ii is arguea, out many wno heard the testimony, do not agree with Hia rneontlv mihltehAil oieminta As one party expressed it to the Mist, "It Pender is innocont. I want to see him free, but until his innocence is proved, the governor should not pardon him." The people ot Columbia county wno nave not nor evor will torget the case await with interest the ac tion of the goevrnor.
