West Side Rabbit Drive.
Ira G. Moshier, the West-Side fancier,
was a "spondulix" caller at The Ex
aminer ollhtf this week. Mr. Moshier is
making great improvements on his
ranch near the Union school-house
laying off his land tttto agricultural
tracts and fencing it substantially, tile
is one of the men who believes that tjpe
West Side has a good future. TJie rab
bit drive near.liis' ulace last Sunday was
4t failure, as only forty of the pests were
killed. Moshier say! thet rabbi Is have
taken to the hills in' great numliers.
The nets will be moved this week from
the scene of the recent drives to Drews
Creek, where the rabbits are sajd to be
more numerous. Next Sunday there

An Engineering Party Reaches Klam
ath Falls From the North.
A party of railroad surveyors from the
jiOJl't flopped here a Iuk days during
the reivnt heavy storm, lays the Klam
aili Ki'pulilican. There were four in
ti e party, which was under charge of
Cliii't Lngineer ilemlerMin. liy a
gentleman w ho interviewed the party"
we are informed that they started from, Ore., some lime in the fall for
the purpose of making a preliminary
ruilioad t-urvey, gathering data, etc.
From Ontario thev ran the line westerly
to Ti ineville, and from thence southerly
along the eaxt side of the Cascade moun
tains. The line touched Fort Klamath
and Klamath Agency and from there
along the east short! oi Big Klamuih
lake to Klamath Falls. From this place
they continued southerly to liald Moun
tain Puss. From there they returned
homeward, but were caught in the. -torn)
and remained here a few days as above
mentioned. They stated that the route
they followed from first to last was ex
cellent and easy to build a road QVer.
l'.ald Mountain Pass is said to lie easy to
get through to the west,. Iu connection
with this, we will mention that the Ore
gonian, under the head of "A New Rail
road Project," mentioned the proposed
extension of the railroad now built from
Montague to Yreka in a southerly di
rection, for the building of which the
money is ready. If that report is cor
rect, then au extension from Montague
northeasterly would strike Paid Moun
tain Pass, and the connection of these
two rouds fems, possible, and indeed
probable. .'
Dr. R. E. Lee Stelner.
From the Polk County Observer,
published at Dallas, this state, we take
the following complimentary notice of
Dr. R. E. Lee Steiner:
Dr R. E. Jee Steiner leaves .today for
Lakeview, OVegon', where' he may de
cide to lej-ate, as flattering inducements
have voerfdfTered him to establish him
self at that place. He will make no de
finite arrangements for leaving Dallas,
however, until he has thoroughly inves
tigated tae. situation In Southeastern
Oregon. It would be with a feeling of
deepest regret that our people would

Lakeview Sport5men Ask
Amendment to Law.
Reports From All Over Lake County
are to the Effect that Mountain
Quail are Plentiful and Sports
men Want to Kill Them.
Some time ago The Kxtininer had oc
casion to call to account certain '"pot
hunters," who were slaughtei ing quail
j in the canyons adjacent to Lakeview,
and the attention of State Game Warden
(2uimhy was called to the fact that these
j birds ere hemic killed in great nuinler,
, despite the fact that the rmte law pro-
htlilted the killing or trapping of quail,
i Word Irtwi every section of the
county that quail are surpas-ii.gly num
erous now, no doubt owing to the
I mild winters of the past ten years.
S.iine t-ople are led to lielieve thai these
j birds have emigrated to the canyons of
Lakeview, so numerous have they be
come in this vicinity. It is thought by
some of our sportsmen (not "pot hun-
ters"j that it would lie well now to have
) an oHn season for quail in Lake county,
j in order to give the true sportsman a
I fair chance with the man who has no
j regard for the law, hut kills these birds
j whenever or wherever he finds them.
I Another good argument in favor of an
j open season in Lake county is the long
. anticipated hard winter in this section,
I w hich is apt to come at any time, and
should a particularly severe winter be
fall us, like the season of 1889-1)0, these
birds would all die of starvation. Dar
ing the mild seasons they propagate very
fast. We understand that in Summer
Lake, Chewaucan, Crooked Creek, New
Pine Creek and Warner sections quail
are very numerous. They are the regu
lar uiouutain quail and are beautiful
birds. As they are King killed anyway
by non-observers of the law, the game
law should be changed so as to make an
oien season in Lake county, iu which
these biids may be killed say from
September 1 to December 1.
Several local sportsmen have inter
ested themselves in the matter, and a
letter has been addressed to represent
ative U. A. Emmitt, requesting him to
have such an amendment made to the
game law.
The Examiner hopes that our Repre
sentative 'will be able to have the amend
ment made to the new game law which
will lie introduced at thi session, and
that when the law takes effect we will
not find anyone in this neighborhood
so reckless and contemptible as to pur
sue and kill these birds wantonly and by
the bagful), just to be killing, but that
airtiunters will observe the rules of , (he
true sportsman, and only' kill a reason
able number at on j shooting.
Ororire P. Clark Secretes Hit noney While
Alert Burglar Watches Through Window
Several weeks ago George P. Clark
left Lakeview for his cabin on Cotton
wood creek, taking with him about $250,
the sum total of his hard-earned savings
for the summer and fall. He placed the
money in the bottom of a barrel which
was filled.with oM rags, in his cabin,
and believing it sate started for the t i tri
be r after a load of wood. Evidently
somebody watched him cache the
money, for upon his return the cabin
door was found broken in and his money
gone. Tracks in the snow at the win
dow was evidence that the robber knew
where to place his hands on the money,
Tlfe facts were in the possession of
The Exanfiner two weeks ago, but were
kept secret to give the oaVicers an oppor
tunity to work on the case. They are
still on a warm trail and may land the
guilty partywt any hour.

vaal Republic, who is on a tour of the
resi.-rEuropeau Countries in the interest of
the Boer against England, and who
expected to visit the United States soon.
is dangerously sick at Paris, and will
probably die. It would, indeed, be s
strange coincidence were Paul Kruger
to so soon follow Qaeen Victoria to the
