aays he is at loss to know how such a re
port could gain currency though it was
probably announced by somebody not in
authority as the Lakeview public school
is in a flourishing condition financially,
as are all th. schools of Lake county.
The Examiner Is pleased to make the
correction and to state that there will be
a full eight months' term and probably
nine months. The Superintendent says
there are over f 5,000 now to apportion
to the various schools of the county, and
that there will be another apportionment
in April next fully as lurge, which wilt
place our schools in an unusually healthy
condition. We also understand that
there is no difficulty in getting the teach
ers for the various departments of our
school this year to sign a contract. The
positions in the Lukeview school are
much sought after.

morning, tells how .1. L. Yadin, the prop
rietor of the line fell a victim to the high
waymen, yesterday. Yadin had left
Hart a Station, on the main road, in hit
home and cart, fur points Ix-yond the
logging camp, aome fix milea distant, via
a by-road. Afler he had prut-ceded some
balance he was met by a young, vigor
ous looking k-llow of alxjut 20 years of
tgu, riding horseback from the opiKwite
direction. The young man saluted and
stopped the .Lane-line owner, engaged in
uood-na lured conversation about the
weather, c -million of the roads, etc, and
after a few minutes rather surprised Mr
Yadin by asking if he bad any money, to
which Yadin replied, ' Yes a little." As
he did so the young man ran his bands
down into bis trowacr'a pocket and took
bold of a revolver he carried there at
llitytame time telliugYadin todifide. Not
fancying the appearance" of "the inrrln
th. young man's hands, the stage-line
owner complied with the command and
handed over all the loose change In his
pocket amounting to 1.85. Then the
highwaymao was as courteous in parting
with as iu meeting his victim and bid
liim a hurried adieu oniresumin" his way.
Yadin not lo be outdone in jocularity,
atked tbe young man if he did not want
his watch, too, but the young man finally
decided that he would not demand that,
Yadin had 116 in a book in tiia vest but
the highwayman did not press for or de
mand more than was handed him. Afler
the incident both the travelers on the
public highway proceeded on their re
Sectiv. ways. Yadin went to th. log
ging camp w here he secured some men to
aid him in pursuing the highwayman.
Aftei relieving Yadin of bis small
change the young fellow encounteied an
old man traveling along the road and
held him up, but lie was unprofitable
game and nothing at all was secured
from him. The third victim was an old
gentlemen, a fruit peddler named Booth,
who contributed the princely sum of 40c,
all lie h.d on his person, to the coffers oi
the robber, and at his earnest solicitation.
With a number of men from the log
ging camp Mr. Yadin went in search of
the highwayman and overtook him at
Puckett's ranch where he had gone and
ordered a meal prepared after his day'a
work, lie was arreted and taken to
Klamath Falls, this morning, where he

SUHHARV LAKE'S TAX ROLL.
Below will be found the summary of
the assessment roll of Lake county for
the year 11)01, as shown by the books of
Assessor John Blair. Land to the
amount of 38,230 acies, a great portion
of which is in Warner valley, and in
dispute, and the taxes thereon having
heretofore been paid by the Warner
Stock Company, was r worn off this year,
and appears under the heading of
"wrongfully assessed." Owing to this
the assessment is not so great on land
and a little higher on other property
this year. The increased valuation would
have been considered greater for 1901
than previous years were it not for the
"swearing oft" process. Following is
the summary I

formed on Friday last it wa noticed the
bullet had carried w ith it a abort die
lance tienealb the skin fragment of the
Preiudeiit'a roal. Thisforeign material
was of course removed, but a slight Irri
taiion of tlie tifsiies was '.produced, the
rvidence of which lias only appeared to
night. It lias been news nary on account
of this alight disturbance to remove a
few stitches and partially open the stain
wound. This incident cannot give rife
to other complications, but it is com
municated to the public as the surgeons
in attendance wish to make their bulle
tins entirely frank. In consequence of
this separation of tbe edges of the sur

somewhat delayed. Tbe ''resident ia

The Hunter Return.
The mighty hunters, Dr. F. E. Smith
Lee Beall, Wm. HamersU-y and Harry
Bailey, returned home Monday evening
from Honey creek. They have mighty
tales to tell of thrilling episodes on the
trip. At one time they were without
water for nearly twenty-four hours and
all but Hamersley "lay down to die."
Smith shot an antelope 700 yards and
had lo crook his gun - barrel to reach
round ttie m -tuntain to bring down the
game. Beall fired at a cougar and the
shot started up a big buck between him
and camp and he ran so fast to get out
of the way of the cougar that he came in
contact with the buck and kicked him
out of the way, remarking as he did so,
"Get out of the way, and give a man a
chance who can run." Tb. buck was
speeding with the wind at the time.
There are other interesting things f be
told, but lack of space forbids. The
party killed many antelope and two line
BUFFALO, N. Y., via Reno, Nevada, Sept. 6. Pres
ident McKinley was shot twice at Buffalo, while attend
ing a meeting in Music Temple, at 4 p. m. today. The
shots were fired by a Polish Anarchist from Detroit, Mich
igan, named Fred Nieman, who remarked after firing at
the President and seeing him fall; "I did ray duty and I
am glad oitU! One.bullet struck the President in the up
per portion of the breastbone, glanced and did not pene
trate. The second bullet penetrated the abdomen five in
ches below the left nipple and one and a half inches to the
left of the meeting line. The bullet penetrated the stom
ach. There is no injury to the intestines nor the abdom
nal organs. The latest report is to the effect that the bul
let has been extracted and the patient is resting easy.
The assailant was arrested and had to be protected by a
body of police to save him from lynching.

Miss Lora Fern Butler and Miss liose

The newa reached Lakeview by wire
on Friday evening that President Mc
Kinley bad been shot and killed, and it
was a fearful shock to our citisens. Men
and women could be seen in groups on
every street corner talking over the sad
calamity, and little children passed along
the byways telling passera-by.that the
President was dead. The local telegraph
office was besieged by anxious crowds
clamorina for further particulars. Just
after supper word came that tbe first re
port w as erroneous, and that the Presi
dent, though shot twice, was still alive.
No definite news could be bad unlit The
Examiner wired tbe Reno Gazette for
the particulars of the tragedy. By 9
o'clock tb. telegraph instrument began
to tick off the Special to The Examiner,
which was the only message received
that night, and which ia reprinted in
this issue from The Examiner Extra.
There was an anxious crowd in waiting
to listen to tbe message, and as soon as it
was read at the telegraph office the peo
ple began to separate, murmuring as they
started for their homes, "Thank God)
He ia not dead I"
The Examiner Extra was printed and
mailed before midnight to all the sub
scribers in Lake county, and was carried
to its destinations by the ui.rning stages.
Early in the morning each patron of the
local postofllce was handed an Examiner
Extra, w hich contained the only authen
tic news of the attempted assassination
of the Nation's leader.
The Lakeview Rustler, with great en
terprise, also issued an extra telling
about the tragedy in a garbled dispatch.
Ttie Rustler's newa was boldly stolen and
published from The Examiner's paid for
special telegram, without any credit to
this paper. As a putty pilferer of private
dispatches the aforesaid Rustler takes
the "mit." At the expense of The Ex
aminer the readers of the Rustler were
privileged to read a part of the paiticu
lars of the attempted assassination cf
Further particulars as to the methods
U8ed by the would-be assassin are of in

the Temple of Music, and when in front
of tbe Ethnology Building a man ap

hands w ith the President. His hand
was covered with a white handkerchief
and beneath it was tbe deadly pistol.
He immediately shot the President twice

room when the tragedy occurred. When
the news was gently divulged she bore
up bravely and requested that her
wounded husband be brought to ber if
ihe police have learned that the real'
name of the assassin is Leon Czolgoei.
He made a confession to the effect that
he had become au anarchist through the
influence of Emma Goldman, whose
writings he had read, and whose lectures
he had listened to. He says he was in
