SENATOR WILLIAMSON Say He Does Not Vant to Go to Congress in Moody's Place, But Would Not Object to the Secretaryship. What nomination will State Senator Williamson receive? Of the man v avail ble men in Eastern Oregon, he, at least is apparently a sure winner for some thing. That he will not be overlooked at the convention next Spring 1- considered a certainty by well-informed Republicans of this city, saya the Portland Telegram Senator Willieraaow-ie apoVsn ot-a s successor to Congressman "Moody and al so aa a successor to Secretary of State Dunbar. There is quite a boomlet hav ing as Its object Williamson's candidacy for Congress. This ia against bia wishes, however, for his preference is the post now filled by Dunbar. It is asserted that politicians mfrieodly to Moody are trying to defeat him by means of Williamson ; i.ot that they love the latter more, but that they care fo.- Moody less. Having no inclination to be a Congressman nor to be used aa a club against Moody, Williamson refuses toen tcrtain the idea of representing the Sec ond Congressional District of Oregon at Washington. Senator Williamson atated recently that bis ambition was to be Secretary of State, and to use an overworked expres sion, be is not a "miscellaneous candi date." H is career has been quite meteoric, for it ia only within the past three years he attracted attention throughout the state. Thus far he has served in the Legislature ss Representative one term, and ia now filling hia first term as a Senator. Hav ing avoided becoming a rabid partisan, he stands well in both factiona of the Republican party. Alturas Incorporated. The preliminary details of town govern ment are now completed and our town ia now lully incorporated, says the new Era. I. W. Gibbina, clerk, and R. T. Taylor marshal, entered upon their duties last week, and are discharging them in an en ergetic and capable manner. The board of trusteea hold their meet ing- in the supervisors room at the court house, and two rooms of the old jail will be used aa a town jail. The trustees have chosen att rney A. F. Shartell aa recorder and police judge, and he will make an efficient and fearless officer. fir. and Mrs., Moore Entertain. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Moore entertained twenty guests at a banquet in Klamath Falls on the evening of Oct. 12th, after a performs ce given by them. Those who enjoyed Mr. and Mrs. Moore's hospital ity were the members of the iocal dram atic company, their relatives and a few friends. The Republican eays the event was a substantial evidence of the good feeling entertained by Mr. and Mrs. Moore for those who have co-o(erated with them in giving publio entertain ments. The repaat was excellent and the social features added much to the pleasure of the occasion . JAPAN. FINE SHEEP FROM CROOK A Big Bnnch of Thoroughbred De laines and Ramboulettes on Exhibition by Lafollett & Allen of Crook. L. li. Lafollett, representing Allen & Lafollett, breeders of fine blooded sheep, was an arrival in Lakeview last Thurs day. Mr. I-afollett arrived in Lake county with 255 rama this week, and the animals had reached Summer Lake when he came on to Lakeview. One hall of these xna ara thoroughbred D lainea and the other half are a croee be tween the two fine atrains of Delaines and Ramboulettes. They come from the Allen A Lafollett breeding farm near Prineville, Crook county. These gen tlemen have been breeding up the beet strsinsof aheep at this tame farm for twenty-five years, and believe tbey bave reached the acme in the business of sheep breeding. These sheep were originally of the Spanish Merino blood, and have after years of experimenting, been bred up lo Ramboulettes and De laines. The wool of either of the two latter breeds is said to be too dry, but the cross makes the wool more moist, and altogether a fine sheep. The Ram boulettes are slightly the largest sheep, but the Delaines are said to exceed slightly in wool. The firm has just re ceived a pair of gold medal prize winning Delainea which were bought for the Crook county farm at the Kansas fair. Out of the 225 bead brought to Lake county by Mr. Lafollett, 96 head were purchased in Bummer Lake by wool- growers Won. Harvey, George Winkle- man, 8. P. Mosa and Jamea McXew. W. J. Sherlock also purchased quite a number from the same firm. There are 159 head of these fine rama left, and they will be brought' to Lakeview the last of this week for inspection by our loca) sheepmen. The sheep can be seen for the next couple of weeks, if not sold sooner, at the pasture of John Bull, a short walk west from Lakeview, near the slash. The Crook county breeding farm supplies nearly all of Eastern and Southern Oregon with fine atrains of sheep. Allen A Lafollett raise' about 1000 rams annually. The Lakeview Mercantile Company. The Examiner neglected la.-t week to announce that the Lakeview Mercantile Company had incorporated and that the shareholders had paid the full amounts of their stock into the concern. The new company was duly organized and is now doing business with the following officers elected : F. M. Miller, president ; Chas. A. Kehart, vice-president; V. L Snelling, secretary and treasurer. The directors are, F. M. Miller, V. L. Snel- ling, Win. P. Heryford, Chas. A. Kehart, Robert McKeo, F. M. tireen and tieo. H. Hankins. This company starts off with thirty thousand dollars additional capital and is certainly on a solid finan cial foundation, as it is composed of some of the wealthiest men in I-ake county. The Kxaminer hopes that the Lakeview Mercantile Company w ill meet w ith uu liniiud success. IW Several Cases Reported in Klam ath Palls and Bly Two Cases in Lakeview Prove to be "Chlckenpox." Word was received in Lakeview laat Monday that smallpox had br ken out in Klamath Falls and that several people of that place were afflicted, and one case proved fatal on Saturday, owing to the patient exposing himself t tu freely. The disease is in a mild form, and at last reports the physicians ol that town had not determined whether it waa smallpox or not. Some say it is not that dreaded disease, while others be lieve it is. It was not learned whether or not a quarantine bad been placed on the town. Onr informant stated that the supposed smallpox patients were walking about and appeared uncon- cerned. Henry Newell, who arrived from Drews valley Monday, saya there are six cases of the same disease at Bly, and that opinion there appears to be di vided as to ilie nature of the disease, some declaring it ia smallpox while others say not. Dr. Johnson of Bonanza, at last accounts, would not give an opinion regarding the nature of the dis ease u itil he had studied the cases more fully. Moot of the physicians of Lake view aoDear to think it is not small dox. I1 ----. although they have not examined any oi toe cases, they Dane their opinion upon the theory that it ia customary in a case of chickenpoxor breaking out with a rash, to cull the disease "small pox 1" Some excitement waa created in Lake view Tuesday morning by the announce ment thai two ease of smallpox bad ap peared in Lakeview in the family ofT. E. Bernard. The members of the family aaid to be afflicted are James, the eldest boy, aged about eleven years, and Mar gie, aged eight. Dr. F. E. Smith, aa county physician, attended the patients,' and while in bis opinion it is chicken pox be ha i taken the precaution to place a strict quarantine on the Bernard home. Dr. Smith says he has taken this precaution to avoid any spreading of the disease, and for fear that it may develop into a case of smallpox later on, though he has no fear that it will prove to be that disease. He undergoes the same fumigating process about his own penon as though he were treating a well developed case of smallpox. In justice to himself as health officer and to the en tire community, Dr. Smith believes he is doing his full duty In the premises, and in our opinion the public will bear . him out, and give him due credit for the faithful performance of duty. Dr. Smith has also talked the matter over with the Mayor and Recorder of the town, and, requested those officials to send any physician to examine the raaes if they were not satisfied. Even if these cases torn out to be smallpox, which is most Improbable, there ia no occasion for any alarm, aa the Bernard home is nnder strict quar antine, and there ia no possible danger of a spread of tbe disease. The Ex aminer it inclined to the opinion of Dr. Smith regarding these cases, and be lieves that the entire "scare'' from Klamath Falls to Lakeview will turn out a to be cases of chickenpox. People liv ing in the country can safely come to Lakeview and transact business as us ual without a particle of danger. Latkk Since the above was put in type it has been definitely settled that the children of T. E. Bernard are afflict ed with chickenpox. On Tuesday Dr. Steiner discovered a half dozen cases of the same kind on the West Sido. Wool From Lakeview. The Ked Bluff News of the 11 inet. says that two teams of two wagons each on which were loaded 54 bales of wool from I-ake view, Oregon, arrived there Friday evening. The wool was un loaded at the steamer landing to be ship ped by water to San Francisco. The teams were sixteen days on the way down and the teau-.sters say they had a hard trip as they encountered enough rain to make the roads quite muddy and heavy.
