Last Wednesday morning the wind begun blowing strong from tho north and continued all day Thursday. On the 11 th there was a skit of snow and info that time it has lieen clear and cold. The middle of the day appears like a cool summer day. The roads have become more easily passable and have dried up sufficiently for teams to draw fairly good loads. According to the weather bureau instruments at The Examiner office the coldest nights thus far for the season were Thursday and Friday, 12cU atd 13th. Ice has been forming in the ponds at the rate of about an inch each night, and on Tues day it was six inches thick. Our citiseui will begin putting up ice today for the summer use. The minimum thermom eter record at this olllee shows that m the 11th inst. the mercury registered 13 above, and from that time to Tuesday morning the 17th inst.it stood 11, 11, 15,15.17. At this writing the sun is shining brightly in Lakevlew anl the weather is very plensnnt. 'ready uatahliahed. They are of value only to thoMt who own livestock. Their preoent owners can continue in the live stock husineas only with free range, be caue the Mior homestna der ?snnot lease and protect sufficient land U, l-aature his stiM'k. If the land whenjleaiea is not protected there is no reason for leas ing. The leaseholder must lie secure in bis ability an 1 right to hold and protect his holdings ag.inat every person, and j all intrusion, or he will not leaae. lie 1 must have tree right to chooac the best, ' jor he -Mil take none. The beet having been taken and firmly held by lease, the ! remaining land no one would have as a 'homestead. Any attempt to lease the i lands ao as not to interfere with the ! homesteader, and give the person leas- ing any security whatsoever that the ! very leat of his holdings will , not tie taken from him, will be (utile. The two tilings are wholly antagonistic and utterly impracticable. If the Government would grant each of us su lllcient land free to pasture oar stock it would cost us more than wst are worth, altogether, in many cases, to fence and protect it. If unprotected it would be of no value. The corporations would protect theirs and consume oars. The sheep industry coald not continue one day in Lake county, after the land is leaned, in the hands of those now con ducting it. The nature of the, animal, the climate, soil, fced and seasons, all contribute to moke it almolutely certain that the industry, in the hands of the people w ho now have practically all of it, cannot continue without free range. The cattle corporations clearly under-j stand tliH and it 8 their avowed pur-j xse to destroy thin industry, on the j range, by leasing the landn. The country , ia nut mi well adapted to any other live- j stock business. No other livestock buai- j Hess is so profitable. In no other busi-j uess can the poor, industrious young j men so easily start in busir ess. This ' industry, if not interfered with, is able to meet all adverse ciiciiiustances and j prosper in this country, when all other foi ms of livestoik busi ess languish. lli;ie, the sheep bus found those natural ; condilioi.s which make this country his 1 rue home. Leasing the hinds willdis place the sheep, and substitute an ani mal far les capable of proHering here. The Secretary of Agriculture .uggeHts j the leasing of the public hinds hc as not ! to interfere with the homesteader. We have shown that, in this country, either j leasing would be impossible or home-' steading must be discontinued. IIu sug- j gusts that the land be leased in small ' He expresses Gratitude. F. A. Wisdom, who was the only smallpox case in Lake county, and who was last week discharged from the pest house near town after spending thirty eight days therein, desires The F.xain iuer to express his thanks to numerous people in the following way : Kuitoh Kxamixkr--Allow me space 111 your paper to express my gratitude to all who took an interest in me during the thirty-eight days I was quarantined with smallpox. Dr. Mtoiuer, who had me in charge, waa very attentive snd called to tee me every day until I was out of danger. I have ' reason to remember , him. ' I have also, to thank a faithful nurse, Mr. McMillan, I have reason, also, to re member F. P. Light, Manager of Hotel Lakeview, and also Mr. and Mrs. E. V. Lewis for many good things to eat and an abundance of choice reading matter. Thanking all, and .especially those who are lo authority, for kind treatment, I am Respectfully, T. A, Wihdo'm. Lakevlew, TVe. 14, 1901, lots. Even to those who have but few stock, only the very cream in email lots w outd be of any valoe. To those hav ing large numhere and no others favor leaamg this proposition would only be accepted with the intention of evading it. The Secretary further smrgents leasing as a means of uniting "the non-irrigable grazing lands and the irrigable lands." We answer, that these two classes of lands are now, emphatically, united. Kvery acre of irrigable land being sup ported by an exactly sufficient puintier ol acres of non-irrigable, pasture land, i.KASixo will sepahatk tiikm! Nothing can be more certain than that the irriga ble and non-irrigable pasture lands, now closely united, with the very w idest dif fusion of benefits so wide as to be prac tically universal will be effectually put aarunder by leasing, so far as the irri gable email hoiues are concerned, the .TOUMiAlon between which two classes of land Is now perfect. It must be evident to every man that anything which men of unlimited means went 1 bey will, la tone way get, when it can be had by the corrupting influence of money. Xha law does not now allow the great corporation to acquire the land, and there ia 00 other reason to be given why they bave not already acquir ed control of all of it that is of any value. No safeguard, however carefully placed in tho law to Lea can -prevent the corporations from getting, at their own prices, the stock and homes of thousands of homestead settlers. To provide for leasing the lands is to give men of means the power to destroy the prosjierity and happincts of seventy Hve H?r cent of the small homes in the range country. To oblige a homesteader to lease and protect land to pasture his little band of slock is to oblige him to expend, iu many instances, more money than he has in getting his home and stock. Such would be the cost of fenc ing and protecting bo much lurid. To provide for leasing the land is to give one person the means of distressing and destroying another. To create hat reds, strife and lawlessness where now is jieace. To provide for leasing the lands is to betray the very people w ho have conquered this country for civiliza tion into tile hands and power of the corporations. It is to match the rich against the poor in a contest so uneven that there can lie no doubt of the complete over throw of the homebuilder.

Is doing: to Work in Earnest Operations Begun. It is evident from the following taken from the Yreka Journal that the Klam ath Lake Railroad Company is an assur ed fact: Articles of incorporation were filed in the County Clerk's office last Wednesday, with five directors named therein, to lay out, construct and main tain a standard-guage railroad from thu S. P, It. R. line at Laird's ranch, or the old Virginia ranch, Siskiyou county, Cal., about two miles south of Klamath on, to a point between the upper and lower (alls of Fall creek; thence to a point on the California and Oregon boundary line, a distance of 15.6-10 mil es from starting point ; thence into the State of Oregon, to intersection with the logging 1 ail road operated by the Poke gam a Sugar Pine Lumber Co., in Klam ath Co., Oregon, a total distance of 22 miles; thence in a general northeasterly dire.-tion to the Upper Klamath lake, a distance of 43 miles, making a total dis tance of 65 miles. In addition, the company will engage in building and running steamers on the Klamath lakes j and Klamath river, and tributaries, in the State of Oregon and establish docks, construct wharves, etc. They will also construct telegraph and telephone linea along s.id railroad. The term of the corporation is to be fifty years, and the the amount of capital stock f 1,000,000, in 10,000 shares of $100 each.

The bal ance of the road further northward, will Lie built later on, so as to reach the lakes, to run several miles further into Oregon by steamboat connections. P.ig Klamath lake is all within Oregon, and the boundary lino crosses Little Klam ath lake at head of Klamath river. N-C-O Kails Arrive.
