Cornelius Steinitstz, 12-8-tf. , L'Anse, Mich. PER YEAR LESS THOMPSON VINDICATED Game Warden's Investigation In the Arvon Case Comes to an End. The game warden's department has completed its investigations in the Arvon matter in which S. D, Thompson, a deputy game warden for Baraga county, was charged with baying unwarrantedly seized and confiscated three deer last Nov ember. Charles K. Hoyt, deputy state game warden, had charge of the in vestigations and submitted his com plete report to State Game Ware en Charles H. Chapman. the latter part of last week, says the Soo News, so that Mr. Chapman submitted the results of the department's findings in the matter to the parties gener ally interested. The department found from Mr. Hoyt's investigations that the deer had been taken, but that Mr. Thompson had nothing to do cither with the taking or the appropriat ing of the deer, in fact that be knew nothing of the matter until the next dvraftnmha riper had been taken, and even then never bad any hand in the matter officially, there ap pearing to be nothing conneoted with the affair that required the services of a game warden. The whole affair was somewhat complicated. It appears that the d'er were killed on land belonging Mr. Maxey, a lumberman of that region, who is disposed to see the fish and game laws strictly enforced and who objected to any hunting on his lands, and bad warned the hunters to that effect both person ally and by notices posted about the lands. It la claimed that the hunt ers went ahead and hunted on Maxey 's lands regardless of his in junctions and posted notices. .'. 'The hunters io this case - killed their deer and bung them up. Thev claim that when they went after the carcasses a few days later they found tbem missing and were informed that Thompson had seized and con fi scat ed them, because coupons and license tags were not attached; that they visited Thompson . and demanded their deer and that their request was denied hence their appeal to the game war -en's department Maxey takes all the responsibility of the l'.air, declaring that Tbomp son had no band io the matter offi cially and did not even know of the seizure of the deer at the time. He tates that the matter came to a crisis through one of bis men com ing to him and reporting that a deer which the man bad killed bad been stolen and the tracks where the car cass had been dragged had been fol lowed to another place io the woods where the carcass was found bang ing with two others. He says that be himself told the man to take a team and go and. get the deer and any others that might be with it. This would make it appear that the hunters did not own all three of the deer they claimed to have lost, but thaf ode of them belonged to one of Mtxey's men and bad been removed d'orn the place where the real own er had left it. ' Not finding that any game laws had been violated and finding that Thompson bad nothing to do' with the affair the department has taken the ground that there is no phase of the matter that comes under the de partment and has , so informed all concerned. It would appear from this that If the hunters; feel aggrieved in any way their action would be against Maxey, who ac cording to Hoyt '8 report states that they may begin proceedings as soon as tbey like, claiming that be has cases against them if tbey choose to make trouble and that he is de termined that all illegal bunting and fishing In that locality aod especially on bis laods shall be stopped THAN 3 CENTS PER WEEK BOTH DESERVE ( RE-NOMINATION. S. O. Clinton for County Commissioner . of Schools, and James McKercher for County Road Com. mlssioner.

For the office of county commis sioner of schools, Supt. S. O. Clin ton, of Baraga, the present com missioner, is a candidate, and. heartily deserves a unanimous re nomination. He has proven a faith ful and excellent official, and should again be honored. James McKercher, of Spurr, is a candidate for re-nomination for the office of county road commissioner, and also deserves unanimous- recognition at the banda of the c o o v e n 1 1 o n. Mr. McKercher Is a man well versed in the duties of the office, and has made an exceedingly good official. The- coovention should certainly re nominate him for another term.
