Quail Season Opens October 16.
You can commence shooting
quail next Wednesday morning,
October 16. Many people are
under the iinpresssion that quail
can be killed on October 15, but
a careful reading- of the law will
dispell this idea. Below we
quote section 1 of the game law:
It shall be unlawful for any person
to wouud, kill, ensnare, or entrap in
any manner within this territory, any
deer, buck, doe, fawn, antelope,
urairie chicken, grouse, quail, wild
turkey, wren, martin, swallow, robin,
turkey-buzzard, plover, dove or in-
sectiverous birds, or pursue the same
with such intent or to have the same
in their possession, except it shall be
lawful to shoot prairie chickens and
wild turkeys between the first day of
September and the first day of January
of the following year; and that it
shall be lawful to shoot qnail between
the fifteenth day of October and the
first day of February of the following
year and it shall be lawful to shoot
plover and dove between the first day
of August and the thirty-first of De-
cember of each year; Provided, It shall
be unlawful for any person or persons
at any time to kill, destroy or have in
their possession any wild turkey, quail,
dove or prairie chicken for any purpose
or any pretext whatsoever, except as
hereinafter provided: And, Provided,
Further, that no person shall be per-
mitted to hunt, trap or fish on
premises unless he shall first procure
the consent of the owner, occupant or
lessee of such premises. Provided,
Further, It shall be unlawful for any
person or persons to have in their
possession any quail nets, or traps, or
devices for the purpose of catching
any of the game mentioned in Section
1 of this act, and any person who shall
violate any of the provisions of this
section shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, and shall be, on convic-
tion, fined not less than twenty-five
dollars nor more than one hundred
dollars, with costs of suit, and in de-
fault of payment shall be committed
until same is paid.
YUKON, CANADIAN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY,
Would Not Quit.
Over a hundred men, repre-
sentative among professional,
business and union labor circles,
went to the office of the Western
Union Telegraph company this
morning and endeavored to per-
suade the operator (?) now
worKing there to close the office
and unite with the telegrapher's
union in their endeavor to obtain
better wages for their labor, and
decent hours in which to per-
form their worn.
It was no use however for Mr.
Butts was determined to stay
with his job. Even when one
loyal operator in the railroad
office offered to give up his
position for the man, he still was
hard-headed and refused t o
The labor unions of the city
will take some further action in
the matter, but at present noth-,
ing can be done except to main-
tain a rigid boycott against the
Western Union.—Monday's El

He maintained good order and
the people of Yukon sincerely
regret his going- out of office.
Mr. Kennedy will move with his
family to Salida, Colo.
A new marshal will probably
be appointed by the board and
his salary will be based on the
arrests he makes.
A Good Appointment.
Howard Pendleton, proprietor
of Locust Grove farm across the
river to our north was appointed
some time ago by Governor
Frantz as a delegate to the
Farmers National Congress
which meets at OKlahoma City
October 17. Mr. Pendleton be-
longs to the class of farmers
that are progressive. He does
things with a view of bettering
conditions. Governor Frantz
could have made no better se-
lection in his appointment, or|
found one who will take a more!
lively interest in the proceedings
of the convention.
Was a Deserter.
T. M. Roberts, the young man
who was arrested here last week
for stealing $85 from John
O'Brien at Sam Shehan's farm
northeast of town, and who was
remanded to jail at El Reno by
Judge Hollis, proved to be a de-
serter from the army. Sheriff
Ozumn discovered Roberts was a
dserter and took him to Ft. Reno
and turned him over to the mili-
tary authorities, receiving the
customary $50 reward for his
trouble. Constable Silvers wan-
ted the^sheriff to whack up a
part of'the fifty, but Big John
refused to dig.
A Pleasant Surprise.
A party of forty-four young
people pleasantly surprised Clay-
ton Phillips at his home five
mile south of Yukon last Satur-
day evening, the occasion being
his eighteenth birthday anni-
versary. The amusements of
the evening consisted of various
games and some excellent music
was rendered. Delightful re-
freshments were served at 10:30.
Promptly at 12 o'clock the merry
crowd dispersed to their homes
wishing Clayton many yr. ore
happy birthdays. Those present

A party of Yukon people went
to El Reno Monday evening and
saw "The Squaw Man" pre-
sented at the El Reno opera
house, returning home on the

and was well received. El Reno
boasts one of the nicest and best
managed theaters in the South-

A Big Fish.
O. P. Wells, of the Farmers'
& Merchants' Bank, received a
nice present Wednesday in the
shape of a 13 pound cat fish.
Considerable excitement was
caused on the west bound pas-
senger train Tuesday by a big
drunken negro who assaulted a
white boy in the smoking car.
A number of white men resented
the nigger's actions and put him
off at Council. The negro then
1 threw a rock at the conductor
and several white men took a
1 shot at him. The negro tumbled
over and it was thought he was
killed, but it afterwards de-
veloped that he was only playing
possum." He was not injured
and caught the next train back
to Oklahoma City.

H. T. Burson is in hard luck.
Some one has swiped his fine

"Some of the lawyers think

saloon business and every pro-
vision of the consitution will be
strictly adhered to."

Editors and Posts.
A poetical wave of no mean
proportions seems to be sweep-
ing over the newspaper field of
Canadian county. Peter Parnell
Duffy, the handsome bachelor
editor of the El Reno Democrat,
has been in close communion
with the muse for many months
and quite frequently breaKs
forth in sotur that stirs the souls
of his readers.
F. M. Colville, the sky pilot
editor, political prophet and
sweet singer of the Mustang
valley, is also in the habit of
tuning up his lyre and bursting
forth in joyous songs that make
the welkin ring and bring tears
to the eyes of the big potatoes
that nestle in the sandy loam of
the Mustang country.
Now Dulfy really writes good
poetry, and Colville is not to be
sneezed at either when it comes
to tearing it off in chunks, and
to our mind it behooves every
other editor in Canadian county
to get busy and try to mount
the winged Pegasus and seek the
poetical heights of Olympus or
forever sulFer the stigma of be-
ing considered Invito, Minerva.
Of course we cannot hope to
wield the trenchant pen of a
Duffy, or attain the dizzy heights
from which the Reverend Col-
ville sends thundering down his
sweet sounding lyrics, but in all
humility and meekness we do
submit the following samples to
the critical eyes of our readers:
The boy stood on the burning deck,
He was too brave to run.
With calm delight he lit his pipe
And read The Vukon Sun.
Corn Keeps Coming.
New corn and old corn keeps
coming to Yukon in large quan-
tities. New corn is bringing 40
cents and old corn sells for 45
cents. There is quite a lot of
the old crop in the country yet.

The Squaw Man.
In the cast of characters that
presented "The Squaw Man'' at
the El Reno opera house Monday
night, was one called Bill. He
played the part of a ranch fore-
man and played it well. In
speaking of the play, which was
presented at Oklahoma City last
Saturday and Sunday nights, the
Oklahoman says editorially:
