Supervisor Frouune Takes
up Matter With Alaska
Game Warden.
Taking up again the question of
down from the Kenai Pen
insula, Alaska, several head of
moose to be placed on the west side
of the Olympic mountains, R. L.
Fromme, supervisor of the Olympic
National Forest, today wrote to J. A.
Baughman, at Seward, territorial
game warden for Alaska, reviving
a matter that has been under con
sideration for three years but which
promises this year to materialize.
Conditions on the west side of the
Olympics, says Mr. Fromme come as
near being identical to those found
In Canada and In the northern New
England states, and he belelves this
larger variety of moose would thrive
In that locality. The natural food
of these animals abounds In the
lower Bogachlel and Hoh river dis
trict, where it is proposed to release
the animals.
Because of the scant snowfall in
the Kenal peninsula district the last
two years it would have been difficult
to capture the moose wanted, the
animals having had abundant food.
It is proposed to capture them at a
time when the snow lies thick on
the ground and when their food la
scarce, feed them through the re
mainder of the winter and in the
apring transport them from Seldovla
to Port Angeles, from which point
they will be trucked to Forks, then
to the lower Bogachiel south of
Forks and released.
.. The estimated cost of capturing
and ie?4ing a moose to the time of
ahlpmenl from Seldovla is $l5O per
head. Recently Mr. Fromme took
up the question of funds with State
Supervisor of Game and Game Fish
J. W. Kinney and was given assur
ance of some financial aid from the
game fund. With this aid and what
can be obtained from the U. S. biolo
gical survey, the Moose lodge, and the
U. S. Forest service, Mr. Fromme be
lieves the arrangements can be com
pleted this fall, the moose captured
this winter and transfer made In the
The region in which the moose are
to be released is sparcely inhabited
by elk, unlike other sections of the
Olympic peninsula, though it affords
the elk a splendid feeding ground. It
is in the Olympic storm tone, but
this tact has not curtailed the sup
ply of food there for either moose
<or elk.

Recalls Forty Prison Guards Who
Have Been Picketing Interior
of McNeil Isliind
United Press.
M'NEIL ISLAND, Sept. 17.—The
search for Roy Gardner, escaped con
vict, on McNeill island was virtually
abandoned today when Warden Thos.
Maloney recalled the 40 prison guards
who have been picketing and patrol
ling the Interior of the island.
Special agents of the Northern Pa
cific railroad are still working on the
theory that the escaped bandit is in
hiding here, but Warden Maloney
apparently has given up hope of cap
turing Gardner—at least by the tac
tics which after 12 days have result
ed in complete failure.
All the warden will say, however,
is that Gardner "might have escaped''
to the mainland during the heavy fog
that has blanketed this vicinity dur
ing the last two dys. It is recalled,
in this connection that the first day
following his escape, Gardner might
have taken advantage of a fog also.
Maloney is still maintaining his
water patrol. Twenty-five guards in
15 rowboats are keeping watch
around the shores of the island.
Today it was learned that Gardner
had made a previous attempt to es
cape from the penitentiary shortly
after his Incarceration. He was
caught with a coll of rope, it is said,
with which he Intended to ascend
from an excavation in the prison
grounds at some opportune time.
One of the latest "Gardner casuals"
is the pet cat which a farmer's wife
found riddled with shot.
Two guards were preparing to col
lect the reward for Gardner's capture
when theApme upon a man sleeping
behln#lKarn. He proved to be a
logger working here.
In the meantime agents of the
Southern Pacific railroad are looking
for Gardner in Oregon and Callfor«
Appreciation of the action of the
people of this state in voting com
pensation to veterans of the World
War who entered service from this
state is voiced in a letter Just re
ceived by C. W. Clausen, state audi
tor, from Fred S. Mathias, who be
fore the war was deputy county
auditor of Levis county, and who
now resides In New York.
Acknowledging receipt of bis com
pensation and expressing his appre
ciation to the state officials and the
people of the state, Mr. Mathlas
"Let alone the money value of the
act, which may have accomplished
more than you may realise in these
solemn days that follow the war, it
i-came as a token of appreciation from
the state in which I formerly lived
and for which I have always held
a deep regard. The bond of friend
ship which held me to the state of
Washington is now lined with gold.
"In an instance of this sort, the
money means more than sacrificea—-
the people have sacrificed from their
daily needs to bnild this fund. Re
>gardless of what the soldier may
have sacrificed, his heart is llghten
en when he knows that he is not for
goten, that even after the glamor
of war Is gone, his uniform dis
carded, he still is remembered for
what he d!d or what he strove to do."
Litigation Over Water Rights on
Hunter May Be Settled Within
Few Days.
An action which has been pending
in the courts for eleven years past
is rapidly reaching the stage of final
settlement through the enactment of
the water code by the last legisla
ture. A decision will be forthcom
ing within the next few days.
The action was started in 1910
by the Hunter Land Company to
quiet title with injunctive relief
.agalnßt a large number of water
users along Hunter Creek, a tribu
tary of the Columbia river in Stevens
county. The courts found settle
ment of the dlsnnte Impossible until
■ the enactment of the water code,
four months ago an order of refer
ence was made to the state super
visor of hydraulics, who ordered all
parties to the controversy to file a
schedule or rights. C. J. Bartlett.
assistant supervisor of hydraulics as
referee, has been taking testimony in
the case for the past week, complet
ing this work yesterday. Mr. bartlett
is preparing his report on the
case which will go to the court and
form the basis for a decree.
Board of Trustees Aims to Start Mov emi-nt Which Will Develop Social
Consciousness and Unify Entire Population of
Capital City.
Deflniteness of the position of the
Chamber of Commerce In the city
and Its full effectiveness for com
munity upbuilding is to be achelved,
according to a program of activity
adopted by the trusteees this week.
While covering the entire field of
the work of the organization. The
program includes such a line of
action that will bring about not only
a closer relationship among its mem
bers, but of the community as a
whole. Wholehearted support of the
plan by the membership of the
Chamber of the city the trustees feel
will be of broad benefit to the pub
lic, civic and commercial welfare of
To get and to exchange ideas and
opinions, to feel the pulse of the
citizens on important matters of gen
eral public concern, it is proposed to
hold monthly evening meetings at
the Chamber of Commerce. These
meeting will be fostered by the
Chamber of Commerce but whoever
is Interested in the subjects to be
considered will be welcome and are
urged to attend. It is pointed out
that many problems which affffect
the city are at all times being dis
cussed by Individuals, groups and
organizations. This does not refer
to matters which can and are handl
ed by individual clubs, but to mat
ters of a taxpayers' concern or of
significance to the civic betterment
of the city, things which all should
jointly consider.
Consider Commission System.
Attention is called to one subject
which might well be considered —
whether or not Olympia would profit
by a commission form of government
with direct information being given
through a speaker or speakers where
it had been a success or was a fail
Some systematic scheme ot im
proving and caring for parking
strips, or in more general terms, the
brushing up of Olympia's appearance
»as a capital city, is mentioned as a
topic. The much discussed city
lighting subject is another, while
matters of other nature and of gen
eral concern to citizens would be
come pertinent from time to time
for gatherings. These are sugges
tion contained in the program for
monthly meetings.
Noon-Day Luncheons.
The trusteees considered at length
the holding of noon-day luncheons,
with the final decision to include
them in the program. Although the
other clubs are holding luncheons
it was felt that a Chamber meeting
once or twice a month, carried off on
time and with snap would be the
means of bringing together all mem
bers in good fellowship. The plan
provides for turning over a part of
the time to some other organization
to arrange a half hour's entertain
ment. Among organizations men
tioned are Auto Dealer's Association
time to be given them Just prior to
its auto show; the Sportsmen's As
sociation, the Farm Bureau, Rotary
Club, Klwanls Club, Business and
Professional Wamen's Club, Ameri
can Legion and new National Guard
unit, and others. The first lunch
eon will be held either the first
or second week in October. In con
nection with the luncheons two
groups are to be organized each
playing its part as an auxiliary. One
is a block group on attendance; the
other a glee group.
Believing that there is a trend to
day towards a new civic and social
consciousness, behind which stand
very prominent and practical men
and women in America with very
practical ideas the Chamber believes
that it would be filling a worthy
nltche in helping along such a move
ment. The proposal is to gather
together people In the community
who are interested along these lines
and with them as a nucleus start at
least one definite thing to be accom
plished during the next few months,
'something for the general good and
entertainment of the whole commun
ity and in which the whole com
munity can take part, thus bringing
together various groups in the city.
This community service work would
be not a department of the Cham
ber but a movement started by it
and behind which it would stand,
lit was felt that a program too com
prehensive could not be started at
Ifirst, rather that it should he a
'growth. Th!s idea, as one instance
lis suggested for getting into action.
Community Christmas Tree.
That plans be made for a real
'communfty-wide Christmas observ
ance, which need not do away with
the Christmas, at home. This would
include, as has been done in tlie
past a community Christmas tree.
It would include mass or community
singing and other novel features In
keeping with the spirit of the occa
sion, and possibly, early Christmas
morning, the singing of carols
throughout the city by truck loads
of young folks, all starting from a
common point and radiating to the
various sections of the town.
Such a movement might also, It
Is suggested, look forward to acom
munity week, one day given over to
story-telling to little folks In the
parks, another day a boys' and girls'
field me'et, ending on Sunday with
a program fitting for that day. These
are merely suggestions included in
the program.
Commercial Development.
Those affairs in which the Cham
ber is primarily Interested and work
ing for, and for which any commer
cial organization is sustained, will
be attended to by its committees for
those purposes and the trustees, and
from time to time will be subjects
for discussion by the membership.
This refers to such problems as rates
industries, roads, harbor, taxation,
publicity, etc. This work is the
principal burden of a chamber of
commerce affecting, as it does, the
commercial and industrial develop
ment of a community.
From the secretary's office each
month a mimeographed circular
letter of information will be sent to
each member of the Chamber. This
'letter will be snappy and condensed
and will concern the activities of the
Chamber during the preceding
month and at times touching on
plans for the near future. It will
include the number and nature of
correspondence out of the office, the
organizations that have utilized the
C hamber rooms for meetings, the
aid and service that has been given
individuals and groups, resume of
meetings, and all other matters of
interest to the membership.
The Chamber is at present com
piling new up-to-date literature.
This will be in the form of a handy
folder, with one section devoted par
ticularly for tourist information.
The rest will cite briefly what the
city and county offers.

Claims Recognition of Irish Delegates
as Sovereign Emissaries
GAIRLOCH, Scotland. Sept 17.
A peace conference between British
and Irish representatives is impos
sible while de Valera insists that the
Irish delegates confer as emissaries
of an Independent sovereign state.
Premier Lloyd George said today re
plying to the republican leader.
"It is idle to say that a conference
in which we already had met your
delegates as the representatives of
an independent sovereign state would
be a 'conference without prejudice,' "
Lloyd George said in his message.
'•lt would constitute formal recogni
tion of Ireland's severance from the
king's domains.
"It would entitle you, If you
thought fit, to make a treaty with the
king or not to make a treaty:
to break the conference at any point
and negotiate a treaty with a foreign
power and also to claim the rights
of lawful belligerents.
"We cannot consent to any aban
donment, however informal, of the
principle of allegiance to the king
on which the whole fabric of the
empire la based."
Lloyd George's message was in
reply to a telegram from de Valera
in which the latter explained his
attitude in insisting that the Irish
delegates would come to the con
ference as representatives of an in
dependent nation. De Valera said
that the clause was inserted In his
reply to Lloyd George's invitation
to the conference so that there
would be no misunderstanding of
the Sin Fein attitude.
The premier's answer was dis
patched after he had carefully gone
over de Valera's telegram and been
in communication with other gov
ernment leaders.
High School Students Will Publish
Bi-Weekly Newspaper as
Work in Course.
Journalism has been made a major
subject at the local high school this
year. As a result there is a class of
18 students, juniors or seniors, who
meet the fourth period of every day
to study the fundamentals of news
writing and publication.
Up to 1919 a monthly magazine was
edited by the students, but as it was
practically the only magazine pub
lished by high schools of the state,
the rest having turned to the paper, a
change was made and for the first
time there appeared the monthly
Olympus in the form of a newspaper.
Under the supervision of Principal
L. P. Brown the class has been drilled
in the editorial, business and even
mechanical department of the mod
ern newspaper and very soon will ba
divided into a regular staff, as was
had last year. There will be an
editor-in-chief, associate editors,
business and ad managers, and differ
ent departments, such as Joke 3,
sports, assembly, organizations, ex
change, etc., being modeled on the
metropolitan papers, but written ex
clusively by students.
The first issue of the Olympus will
be printed between the Ist and 15th
of October and from ttyen on every
two weeks until the end of May.
An annual will also be published
this year, in which will be a resume
of all the year's work.
Those belonging in the class are:
Fred Convery, Maude Dawley, Edward
Gonyaw, Roberta Johnson, Beryl
Miles, Ada Perry, Marian Simpson,
James Lovejoy, Lillian Wilson, Mar
garet Walthew, Helen White, Isabel
Weaver, Robert Murphy, Norman Par
