According to a story told Ty two lo cal men who accompanied the Portland Canoe club to the metropolis from here last Monday, a canoe enthusiast from Portland by the name of Pilkington was shot in the back by an irate farm er while the young man, together with two others, were running away with some watermelons belonging to the man behind the gun. It seems that the party camped near Newberg, and, scenting a melon patch nearby, went henceforth to pluck soino of the southern state colors. After they had gathered a few, the owner of the patch hove in sight armed with a healthy looking shotgun, and demand ed that the boys throw up their hands and submit to investigation. This warning acted like a spur to tho three melon fikhers, and they started toward camp accordingly. A shot boomed forth and Pilkington went down just liko the man in the moving pictures, and then the fun was all off. The farmer got scared at his own marksmanship, and, thinking he was a sure enough "killer," proceeded to pack the fallen one to Newberg and into a church where a local doctor and othor brethren were holding a meet ing. The injured man was in trim to be operated on, as he had nothing on but a swimming suit. The dortor probed a bit, and, after pulling out a few shots, the party returned to the camp with their injured friend ,-. and the next morning faded away to the north. The American boat Ellen won yes terday the second of the series of in ternational Bonder boat races against Germany.

The decision near ly precipitated a riot. E BY Young Man Who Shot Police Officer Is at Liberty and Jesse Hall Also i, Is Pardoned.
