TAME WILD ANIMALS ‘ BECOME A NUISANCE One Case of a Washington Farmer Thrown Out of Court Under Game Laws. Curlounly, wild uiiinuils of luuny kinds iu certain parts of tins state have become so extremely tatue as to be u general nuisance. Some elk Introduced into the Sultan | basin front Yellowstone park a lew : years ago have multiplied, hut disdain to lead the wild free life of the hills. They break down fences to get at hay stacks and trample gardens and fields of Snohomish farmer*. Over taken by night, these elk that u few years ago kept from man's sight lie down and chew the cud with domestic cattle or horses. A suit brought by one farmer for damages was thrown ! out of court. The various kinds of pheasants freed in western Washington have refused to leave the barnyards of many ranchers and even with the <h> ! tin stic chickens, while the farmer, un- | ; der penalty of breaking the game laws, must not harm the birds out of season. A most remarkable illustration of animal tameness seen in this state is that of sea lions on Itride's island be | low Cape flattery. A habit of the lightkeeper was to throw all kitchen waste onto the rocks where the lions basked. Soon regularly three bulls I and some young cows kept vigil wait ing for the scraps. Now the zealous sea lions have taken possession of the keeper and ids house, lie is forced to keep all doors shut, else the lions ' amble into the rooms and tip over everything in their quest for bacon or bread. Near llussum u motherless bear cub uppeared last spring at a farm house and remained until full grown in the fall, growing very gentle and play ful. In October lie went away. Itgt has returned this spring with another and larger female bear, which Is sus pected of having a pair of cubs in the ! nearby woods. She carries food there twice each day. A porcupine comes at lunch time into a schoolhouse near Wallulu for crumbs that the youngsters throw to it. If not satisfied with the handout the quills bristle and frighten both kids and schoolmn'am. Two white-tailed deer come daily into the garden and lawn of 11. It. Itaymond.

Baltimore.— ' Divergent opinions as to the ulti mate results of the decision of the Public Service Commission delegating to railroads in the State power to de termine the size of their train crew*. I pursuant to the repeal of the Full- Crew I.a w. w ere expressed by railroad officials and Henry F. Brnenlng. presi- j dent of the Federation of Labor. Officials of the various railroads are highly gratified, as was expected, by the action of the Utilities Board, which gives them full control of their freight train crews, while the labor head, representing the organization which formed the most pronounced opposition to the repeal of the full-crew measure, declared that the decision of the Com mission means a flat repeal of the law. which was thought to have been only modified by placing it under the dis cretion of the Commission. "We are not much disappointed be cause of the announcement of the hands-off policy of the Public Service Commission.” declared Mr. Broening “It is about what we expected, The rider on the Full-Crew Kepeal Bill, giv ing the Commission control of the trainmen, was from the first thought by labor men to be only a weak apol ogy for the outright repeal of the meas ure. for we anticipated little consi deration from the Utilities Board. "The immediate effect of the decision will be felt by at least one third of the trainmen in the State. Instead of th* six men formerly required on a freight train, the railroads will now employ live, and in many cases it is probable that the number will be cut to three. In fart, the railroads have already an nounced their intention to drop one man from each train. This, however was to he expected. But we believe it to he only a matter of time when more will le dropped. "So far as the labor men are con cerned. the tight to retain the full-crew measure, in effect if not as an actual statute, is over. We can do nothing to prevent the railroads from cutting their crews on a large scale. We fought - in tin Legislature for the rights and ! the safety of the train-workers and were defeated. "It is now up to the Public Service : Commission and the railroads to pro tect the trains and the lives of the workers The Commission has not had ; time to adequately Investigate working j conditions on trains with the view to ; determining the number of men needed for safety. The railroads are influ- I • tired by reasons of economy. So until a few train accidents demonstrate the need of a full-crew enforcement we hatdly expect either the saiiruads or the Utilities Board to reconsider their action.” Maxwell C. Byers, president of the Western Maryland Hallway, stated that j the management of that road will make a thorough study of the freight situation befor* making any definite Statement as to what policy would be adopted under the Commission's de cision. The investigation will require a good deal of time, he said and no action will be taken in the near future. D. K. Brent, general attorney of the Baltimore and Ohio, declared that the effect of the decision would hardly throw many men out of work. The railroads will endeavor to provide other employment for those removed from theii regular runs, he pointed out. and the remainder, he said, would be placed on a reserve list and be placed on trains as business increased.
