It is indeed a beautiful and impressive
spectacle, and must be seen to be ap

the Exposition, and when one becomes
tired and warm tramping around view

common phrase of ''One Grand Round
of Pleasure." On reaching Buffalo the
Oregon Coitingent was met by Mrs.
Edith Toxicr Wetherred, who has charge

Outside Bleaters Eat
Off Lake County
There are at the pre en t time a bout
fifty Ih. usaml head of sheep making
slow ix-adwuy throrvJi fjike county
fioin I r'.ofc and other Eastern Orenon
e -:ii.l ie-. en route to-the railroad in
Nevada. n.ee sheep wre pui chased by
iion-ie-tilc ins who tl-i n .1 pay a dollar
in taxes in Lake county. The drovers-
re herding the stock u!oi the ranges
of Lake county, 'imler pretense of driv
ing through, ami it is sale to say th I it
ii;iieal least sixty days la-fore they
leave the ranges of this county. With
such a great body of outside sheep eat
ing the aheatly scant grass on the
ranges, a great hardship to resident
sheepmen as well as cattlemen will
doubtless las the result. It matters not
whose range they trespass, whenerer
they run on to a good range the men in
charge hold their bands thereuntil it is
eaten off, and then move on tu another
place ail under the pretense til driving
through from one county to another un
til the railroad is reached.
Modoc county has a local sheep ordi
nance, we believe, which covers cases
such as this. Lake county sheep buyers
have had to pay a good, r und tax for
driving through Modoc territory during
the past few ye-trs, and we 'ajlieve the
ordinance is still in force. No such law
is in fotce iu this county, or state, either,
and lort-iij j.i"p .uyf nr.. -;..iv1l,,,
to "drive" (which practically means
"range") their great bands- through this
country without paying a dollar lax. It
appears io The Examiner that some or
dinance should be pasted by our county
court, or by some body in authority,
compelling these buyers of tcreigu sheep
lo either drive through as quickly as
practicable or pay a reasonable tax for
liy this means, if the resident sheep
men were not really protected, the
county , at least, would receive some
rem u iteration for the ranging of outside
sheep. It is perfectly natural to sup
pose that if the owners of these foreign
sheep were allowed to pass through as
quickly as possible without being taxed,
or to pay a good round sum per head
for their sheep if allowed to take their
time and et off the ranges, they would
choose the former plan, thereby making
the ordinance effective iu at least par
tial protection to our local stockmeu.
Since w ri'ing the above an Examiner
representative interviewed Attorney J.
W. Moore regarding local ordinauc.ee in
this state. Mr. Moore says that county
courts are not empowered to pass local
ordinances; that such ordinances must
tint be established by special act of the
legislature either for a certain county or
as a state law.
At the next session of the state legis
lature the local stockmen of this county
should see to it that a bill to- this effect is
drafted and presented to that body as a
special act tor Lake county, by our rep
resentatives. To Drill in Modoc.
A Redding man in the person of T. W.
Foster has organized a company in San
Francisco for the purpose of drilling for
oil in Modoc County, says the Redding
Searchlight. Mr. Foster came up Wed
nesday morning from the Bay City and
left that night for Modoc. The company
he has organized is known as the Modus
Oil and Mining Company. Owing to
the slight depression in oil at present
operations will not be rushed.
The ModitcOil and Mining Company
will begin operations iu Surprise Valley.
