Win. Harvey says the telephone line
la huildina on rapidly toward Silver
Lake, and will reach that place about
next Saturday nijjht. Excellent and
rapid work lias bei'ii done on the north
end and all who have inspected the
line say it is the nnt substantially con
structed line outside of the cities. The
Examiner lern that the town authori
ties of I-akeview, having given the com
pany a franchise for fifty years to place
telephone poles ithin the limits, now
ask that the company give the town
officer frve service on the line. The
Examiner cannot believe that the re
quest was made in all seriousness. This
is as yet and doubtless will be for some
time a non-paving en erpriee. Nostock-
holdr in the company will exie't any
service on the line without paying for it,
and there is no gxd reason w hy favors
should be extended to the Tow n of Lake
view a a corporation any more than to
private individual or a stockholder.
The Lake Itounty Telephone system is
splendid enterprise for Lake "ouhty it
is a pood thing and we should all help it
along. The Examiner has no fear hot
that at some time in the not distant fu
ture the system w ill be a dividend pay
ing property. In its infancy, however,
it should be given all the assistance
within the power of every citizen from
Xew Pine Creek to Silver Lake.
In connection with this matter, The
Examiner has been reminded of a slate
ment made in the last issue, which, by
the way, was not intended as a slight to
any of the stockholders of the company
who live outside of Lakeview. The ob
jectionable sentence apeared in a brief
local headed, "Wants Telephone Built to
l'rineville," in which the types made us
There is no good reason why the en
terprising citizens of l'rineville should
not follow the example of Lakeview
citizens and form a joint stork company
to continue the line to Crook's shire
Upon its face this appears to be an in
justice to subscribers of other towns and
localities in the county, but such was
not the intention. In reality, the far
greater portion of the capital stock of the
Lake County Telephone Company was
subscribed outside of Lakeview. Crooked
Creek, Paisley, Summer Lake and Sil
ver Lake citizeus are deserving of due
credit for their unselfish enterprise.

There is no necessity for a general
alarm on account of smallpox, as the one
case in Lakeview is isolated and under
etrict quarantine. Some newspapers
would call this "Manila itch," or some
thing else, hut The Examiner believe in
calling things by their right names re
gardless of results. We believe the
public should be notified w herever the
disease exists. However, we repeat,
there is no cause for alarm. No one
should be frightened away from town
