(Rosburg Review)

That Deputy Game Warden Arthur Hubbard, who was late Thursday shot and killed by Loris Martin on Trail Creek in Jackson County, was one of the most efficient and fearless officers in the state, was the statement made here this morning by District Attorney George M. Brown.

"If I were to choose two game wardens, Mr. Hubbard would have been one of my selections," said the district attorney. "He was quiet, fearless and believed in enforcing the laws. I have had considerable experience with game wardens during my career as district attorney, and I always found Mr. Hubbard a man in whom you could impose trust. in his death the state of Oregon has lost one of its best officials."

District Attorney Brown has known Mr. Hubbard personally for a number of years, and through business dealings they had been brought close together upon a number of occasions. No one in Oregon regrets the death of Mr. Hubbard more than does District Attorney Brown.

Word comes from the general offices of the Oregon Life Insurance company that the $1,000 policy on the life of the late game warden, Arthur S. Hubbard, was forfeited long since through non-payment of premium. Only the initial one ever having been paid. This is a matter of regret to many friends of the deceased warden who were in hope that the family would to this extent be at least partially provided for.

The name of the man killed by a Southern Pacific train near Tolo Wednesday morning was Edward McMillan, and is supposed to have relatives living at Yreka or Eureka, Calif. He died at Sacred Heart hospital Wednesday night at 11 o'clock. In his clothes was found $85. He had been working on the Siskiyou division of the Pacific highway, and spent Tuesday in this city.
