THE LATEST PICTURE OF

j Cedarviile Record Says it Won't
! Ray, But the Buliheaded"
; Promoters will Build On.
The Lake view Examiner of last week
contained an account of a new telephone
j line soon to be erected from Ashland,
I Oregon, to Alturas, via. Klamath Falls
j and Lakeview. It is one of those
schemes that look real nice on paper,
but has little merit to recommend it
w hen analyzed, and for that reason we
believe that it will be some years before
the line is built, if ever. In the first
place, it takes money to build and
equip telegraph and telephone lines,
and in building they are supposed to
puss through a country with sufficient
population to guarantee a certain
amount of patronage, or go to a given
point that will yield good returns.
From a business point of view the pro
posed line has neither of the above ad
vantages to recommend its construction.
It would be over 300 miles long and pass
over a country practically without pop
lation in many places, and would
hardly receive patronage sufficient to
pay decent wages to twoopeiators, tosay
nothing of line repairs. As there are
no mills, mines or manufacturing along
the proposed route, one is at a loss to
see where the business is to come from.
Besides, Alturas, Lakeview and Klam
ath Falls already have telegraphic con
nection with the outside world.
11. V. (Jutes, of Hilsboro, Or., is said
to be the promoter of the scheme, and
we venture the assertion that, if the
line is built, he will have considerable
more exjerience and less money than
he now has. Cedarviile Record.
Don't fatigue yourself, neighbor. The
line will be built from Ashland to Lake
view all right, and the material is en
route now from the East. It does take
capital for such enterprises, and the
said capital in this case is at band, and
the line will "go to a given point that
will yield good returns." The Lake
County Telephone iu operation between
Lakeview and Silver Lake, a distance
of one hundred miles, is a complete
success and w ill soon be a dividend pro
ducer. It was built by Lake county

Principal McCcrmack Retires.
It is to le resetted that Principal
J. K. McCormack of the Lakeview pub
lic sihool finds it necessary to resign his
position ami leave here owing to failing
health. For some time past Mr. Mc
Cormack has been troubled with weak
lungs, and recently suffered a severe
attack of pneumonia which greatly ag
gravated the disease. He has never
been strong since, and after consulting
with his physicians and the Hoard of
School Directois on Monday evening
last he concluded to retire from his ar
duous duties and seek a restoration of
health in some mild climate. At noon
on Tuesday he bade his pupils fare
well and retired from his labors.
The Hoard of Directors decided to of
fer the principalship to Miss Pearl Hall,
who has been a teacher in our public
s diool for three years, and who has had
ch arge of the Primary department dur
ing the present term. Miss Hall ac
cepted the charge and began her duties
as Principal at once. The Primary de
partment will be un.ier the supervision

Mr. McCormack left for Paisley yes
terday to pay a brief visit to his rela

and then proceed to Phoenix, Arizona,
where he will reside for a time in the
hope that his health will Le restored.
The retiring principal is an able teacher
and the School Hoard as well as the pu

cumstances compel him to give up his
