Are Unable to Understand Motive ot\
Park County Sportsmen in Will
ingness to Close Thoroughfare
John H. Hatten, who succeeded j
Jesse Nelson in charge of grazing ofjj
the Denver office district No 2 cover-
ing Colorado, Wyoming, South Dako
ta and parts of Minnesota and Mich-j
igan, spent four weeks in company ,
with R. W. Allen, superintedent of 1 J
the Shoshone forest, in making an in- J
speotion trip of this forest. They
took up all of the problems relative
to grazing that they might be in pos- (
ition to handle the situations as they],
arise. The gentlemen returned to ‘
Cody Friday and Mr. Hatten left
Saturday morning for Denver.
In speaking of the range conditions!
in the reserve Mr. Allen said that :
while the reserve has been more he
avily stocked this year than any pre
vious one the grass conditions have
been unusually good.
“Fire conditions are worse than any
time that I have seen them,” said Mr.
Allen. “The long dry summer and the
high winds of the early fall have;
dried out the grasses and timber so
much that they are extremely inflam
able and hunters should exercise un
usual precautions or we may suffer
heavy losses.
“A very disastrous fire has been
raging in the Bighorn mountains for
a Couple of weeks doing an immense j
amount of damage and our office de
sires the cooperation of everyone us
ing this public domain that we may
be free from losses.
“But ten flres have occured on the
Shoshone forest this year and the
bulk have been caused by lightening.
But two can be laid at the door of
campers. The largest fire burned but
an acre in area and all of the others
have been extinguished without any
damage to speak of.
Os Interest to Sportsmen
“In the Thorofare country we met
a delegation of foresters from Ogden
and we went into the game situation
very thorolv. I endeavored to show
them that the Park county sportsmen
were inclined to be more than fair ir.
handling the game and desired the
preservation of wild life rather than
their own pleasure in getting their
game. In recommending the closing
of the Thorofare game country and
the opening of the portion of the
Buffalo preserve they did not take
kindly to it and it was difficult to con
vince them that our motives were en
tirely unselfish.
‘We suggested that the sportsmen
of Jackson Hole organize along the
same lines as the Wyoming Game
Protective association and that we
would be glad to send a delegation
to meet them at Jackson or that w
would meet them on th<* ground and
make a tour of the game country and
study conditions as they actually »*v
“In the Boulder basin which is now
a preserve we passed fifteen to twen
ty elk which indicates that the re
fuge established there is serving the
purpose for which it is designed.”

Young People Spend Evening of Fun
at the Welcome Social Given
by the Presbyterians
A kangaroo court was the form of
entertainment at the Welcome social
at the Presbyterian church parlors
last Friday night.
The Supreme Chancellor of the ord
er of the Kangaroo in the person of
Dr. F. A. Waples was introduced and
held court. Dave Jones was con
stable and was duly invested with the
symbol of authority. He arrested va
rious and sundry individuals and brot
them to the bar of justice to be duly
tried and sentenced. Members of the
party were brought forward and com
pelled to perform for the amusement
of the company and thus a musical
and literary program was worked out.
M. D. Canyon Smith was inflicted
with a punishment he was unable to
endure and a collection was taken to
pay his fine. The charge against him
was the crime of loquacity and the
penalty was that he should stand with
his back to the center post and re
frain from talking for two minutes.
A cold sweat broke out on him. he
writhed in agony, and only the timely
assistance of attending physicians
saved his life.
Upwards of two hundred people en
’ joyed the evening’s fun. Refresh
ments were served.
