On the following day it was arranged in Lakeview that tho manager of the Lakeview team and four new players would go to Cedarville and make a chanuu for the final name, hut the arrangement slipped a cog, and the new feature was dropped, leaving the badly whiptHjd team to play out thu string without assistance, ami return home all gory from the scalping knives of the Surprise star players.

VIGILANCE the WATCHWORD The Citizens Hust Take Up the right For the Small Stockman. The People of Harney are Becoming Aroused and Lake Should jl ol low SuitMonster Petitions the Weapon of Defense. The citizens ol Harney county, and particularly the Mm kinen, nru takings deep inti-rent in thft question of leasing the public domain, and are giving their views and opinions, and w hat ought to be done by the tsHiplt!, in the local prefix. There I nothing to be lout in discoasinu this important iputHtion. Home artiou will surely be taken in the matter either l the next session of Congress or later, and it is welt that ths people arouse themselves for they have before them a fight to the death their opponents to Iju the calMo barons of tha West and millions of money. There is no ques tion of the pursue of the rich stockmen and that they are preparing for the run test before the next congress. It is not the belief of The Kxsminer that the cattle barons will attempt to win out on the bill now in course of preparation w hich purports that the public lauds are to be leased by the government and take away from the homesteader his rights as an American ritisen. Such a law would I in direct violation of the Con stitution and the alleged proposed bill we believe to be simply a blind to cover up the real work of the leaders ol the leas ing proKiiioti. What the people of Oregon and every oth. r Western and Northwestern stale ives of their respective .tales know how they stand on the question, and obtain from the said representatives their promihcs to tight hard against the lean ing plan. Itefore Congress meet, again mounter (M'titioiis should be sent to the Western Congressmen and Senators from every county and district in the West opHising iu the strongest terms the proved law to kill the best indus try of our territory the business of tho small stockman. It will be a sorrv day for the stonk sections of the West when such a bill is passed y Congress that will permit the barons with their many thousands of cattle and sheep to drive the small stockman out of business. Such a law would bring ruination to Lake county, as well as to every other county in Eastern Oregon. The leasers must be headed off by strong petition, the poor man a only weapon against tho strong hand of capi tal. The people of Lake county should take a deep interest in this matter the work of the big stockmen of the country will effect every man here, regardless of what business he may be engaged in. The columns of The Examiner are open to the eople who desire to express their views on the leasing question. Lake Connty Teachers.

THE STADIUM at : y-ry y--':y: .::,r Vr Since the recent revival of the Otympic games the form and mention of the ancient Stadium has become familiar to a majority of Americans who here behold games and contests within the most gorgeous and spacious arena ever erected in the United States, History places the ca pacity of the great Colosseum at Rome at 87,000 specta tors. Although the Pan-American Stadium is about 100 feet longer and nearly the same width as that of ancient Home, yet it has sacrificed seating capacity to enlarge its arena and is intended to hold 25,000 people. The top row of seats is sixty feet from the ground. The structure cov ers 10 acres of ground and is open to the sky only for the awnings which now and then occur. W ill 1 Ui IVUi X May Make Surprise Valley Famous. Mn,.li ) Sunt pro ana am In regard to the so-called "white metal" existing in the mountain! on the west sii. of Surprise valley, and a great deal of exHrimenting has been done with it in the endeavor to turn it into a revenue yielder, and as a result one of the prob lems that veiled the mysterious ore hag lieen solved. While in conversation yes terday with a mining inuii from Colorado, who has been here for some weeks, and who had the ore assayed by some of the best assayers in the United States, he informed us that the "white metal was nothing but nickel, pure and simple and expresses surprise that such a valuable deposit should remain here so long un discovered by our people. The ore is of low gratle, and is found in large quan tities in fissure veins. Experiments are now being made with the oro and a thorough test will be made as to its value, says the Cedarville Kecord. It is said that if the ore will average 1 to 2 per cent In nickel it can be work ed at a good profit. A large number of claims have been filed on. From Steam boat canyon to Neasham bill a belt about 25 miles in length, has been taken, and it is probable, after a thorough test of the ore, that machinery and mills will be erected to work it. The man who says tho much-talked of "white metal" is nickel appears to know what he is talking about and has money to back his Judgment. Gone to San Francisco. Wm. Harvey, President of the Lake County Telephone i Telegraph Company left for San Francisco last week to en. gage the services of a competent mail to superintend the construction of the liue from here to Silver Lake. Mr. Harvey will also purchase all the necessary paraphernalia for the equipment of the line. The directors will endeavor to have construction work begin about Sept. 1st. A Sucessful Trip. Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Woodcock and daughters Maud and Josie, and son Jack, Fred 0. Ahlstrom and Andrew Ham ersley, returned last Saturday from Guana Creek w here they camped for two weeks. Miss Maud Woodcock was ill for several days in camp, but outside of that the party had a delightful as well as a successful trip. Ilammersley killed 17 anteloe, Ahlstrom killed one, and Wookcock, Sr., brouuht down three line deer in tho space of two hours one morn ing. The meat was excellent, ami vhat the party did not use was cured and brought home. the Pan-American Ex. A GREAT STORM Strange Pranks of the Weather .Maiw Lakeview and vicinity was visited ly a thunder and lightning storm last Sat urday, and a copious rain Ml to give new life to the parched and cracking earth. Not quite enough of the rain fell to properly lay the dust in this vi cinity, but it is said that for several miles down the valley the gulches run sluicH heads and the roads were very muddy. Sam Duke, driver on the Southern, says it was almost a cloud burst for six miles south of the Down place. The storm extended to the moun tains at the head of Crane Creek. At Lute Moss sheep camp just over the summit on the Deep cieek side the rain came down in torrents, and swept away or despoiled all the eatables in the camp, and Lute was compelled to take the back track to Lakeview after new supplies. Dick Moore, driver on the Western says the Saturday and Sunday morning storm was one of the fiercest he ever en countered, between Drews Valley and Bly. Hail fell fully six inches deep, he said, and bis horses were knocked down by the lightning shocks. The hail was followed by a heavy rain. Taking the storm all in all it was certainly a phenomenon for midsummer. Another Lookout Tragedy. A man named J. 8. Whitehouse, of Egg Lake, near Lookout, Modoc county, upon returning home from Lookout after indulging io a spree for several days, last Thursday called to his wife who was cooking supper and said : "Come and kiss me good -bye; I am go ing away." Little suspecting his in tentions the wife put her arms around his neck, thinking to humor him. Quick as a flash he reached back, drew a pistol from his pocket, and placing the muzzle to the center of his forehead sent a bul let through his brain. He leaves n wife and two children, the oldest a girl about eight yeart of age. The family are comparative strangers in that section, having moved there only last fall. Vein of Water Uncovered. Messrs. Nail and Watson, who are delving for water in the town well, have drifted south about IS feet toward the channel of the canyon. They are in hard rock, which necessitates blasting. Tuesday afternoon a good sized vein of water was encountered, but was lost again after putting iu a blast. The in dications are that a good flow may be found, LOOKS BAD for THE MOB Detective Fred Jackson Says Every flan will Pay the Penalty. Jackson H&s a Reputation as a Crim inal Hunter and Intimates That He Knows All the Lynchers -Now Making; Report. Every member of the mob which took Calvin Hall and hs three sons and Dan iel Yant is from the custody of the con stable and his deputies at Lookout, Mo doc county, several months ago and hanged them to a bridge near town, will be brought to justice. So declared Freu II. Jackson, who has mule an investigation of the late tragedy for Attorney-General Tirey L. Ford, and who passed through Kedding Monday night on his way to San Francisco to make his report, says the Searchlight. Jackson is employed as a Wells, Fargo messenger on the Jackson and lone srage, and made himself famous in the battle which resuiied in the death of John Sontag and the capture of Chris Evans, and in which battle he lost a foot. Shortly after the Modoc lynching he appeared in Shasta county, ostensibly to spend several months at his wiie'a former home on Churn creek bottom, near Redding, but in reality to assist the state in establishing the identity of the lynchers. The public in general failed to snspe-H the occasion of bis visit but the guilty members of the midnight I( now seems that .their j-oij-o.- tives stopied at Churn creek bottom, where Jackson spent a few days as a blind, and, waiting upon him, warned him to stay away. Unmindful of this Jackeon went straight to the strong hold of the lynchers, and, avowing the purpose of bis visit, began his investiga tion. He was again waited upon after his arrival there, but declined to take cognizance of the threats made against him. He completed his investigation and departed without molestation. Jackson says the banging of the five men was entirely unjustifiable, and that it was not for the betterment of the community. He feels confident that a clear case can be made out against each member of the lynching party, the names of whom he has, but refuses to divulge. When he returned, Jackson said: They were not a very brave lot of men. and they are now thoroughly cowed. They are all equally guilty and will have to pay the penalty. I paid absolutely no attention to their warnings and threats, and I think I can prove their guilt." Land Cases Continued. The contest cases from Klamath coun ty before the local land office were dis continued temporarily last week in order to take testimony at Klamath Falls. The defense in the first case of Edward Parker vs. Mike S. Tarker was given a satisfactory time to file briefs, and the time for completing the testimony at Klamath Falls in the cases of Norman Campbell vs. Jas. Beil, and W. M. Bar ton vs. II. S. Dunbar was fixed at Sept.- 1Kb. m Cave Lake Campers. Henry Lofftus and family and W. A. Wilshire and family have re turned from a fishing and camping trip to Cave lake. This beautiful body of water is situated on the top of the high mountain overlooking New Pine Creek. There is said to be a cave there in which are many interesting sights. The fishing was not the best during the visit of the Lakeview ites though some large beauties were taken. One can drive to within four miles of the lake, and from there the trip to the summit is made on horseback. All who have ever visited Cave lake speak in glowing terms of the beauty of the place and the grand pano ramic view from the mountain heights. Near the lake is also located a mineral spring.
