ritory the major portion of the irrigii- j

sales. The bill has levn In-fore the
coiiimittee for some weeks, and has un- '
dergone minor changes, the anieuduient
ad. led yesterday being first of real im
portance. As oriuanally framed the bill created
a general lund Irom proceeds from the
sale of public lands in the arid land
Slates, the Secretary of the Interior
ing given authority to expend this
amount in the reclamation of the arid
tracts. Chairman Tongue, of the com
mittee, has maintained that this giws
the Secretary ol the Interior too wide a
discretion, and that each State should
retain the bulk ol its own public land
sales. It was his amendment which
prevailed, all the members present vot
ing (or it except Mr. New lands, of Nevada,
one of the original trainers of the bill.
The rejKjrt will lie drafted by Represen
tative Mondell, of Wyoming, and will
be urged by its friends to early consider

MR. TONGUE'S INFLUENCE.
It ia a noticable fa-t that the lunger
Mr. Tongue retains his seal in the Con
gress of the United States the greater
becomes his influence. Regarding the
bill providing fur the Reclamation of
Arid I-arido, Congressman Tongue, who
is Chairman of the Committee, has al
ways maintained that each state should
retain the bulk of its own public land
salea, and this opinion met with vigor
ous opposition, but Mr. Tongue has won
the Committee over to bii way of think
ing, and his amendment to the bill to
that effect prevailed, Mr. Newlanda of
Nevada being the only member to object
to the Tongue amendment. Mr. Tongue
ia to be given the compliment of a re
nomination to Congiess by the people of
the First District of Oregon, and the
nomination will be made by acclamation.
As usual the Republicans of Lake will
send a solid delegation for Tongue to
the convention at Rosclmrgon April 1st.
At a special meeting of the Town Trus

At Last It Is Here.
A violentcase of smallpox was reported
from the Indian camp south of town
last Saturday morning. Dr. Daly, acting
county physician, with Dr. Stiner inves
tigated the case and decided that the
disease was the genuine smallpox. The
disease must be in the air, and was pro
bably "wafted over from Klamath
county." The Examiner is glad to know
that toll physicians have at last agreed
that smallpox really exists within our
county. The patient referred to, an aged
squaw, is under Btrict quarantine, as is
also every Indian in the infested district.
Town Marshal Harvey has orders to
shoot any Indian who gets on this side
the "dead line," but he will probably
not resort to such harsh measures should
he have occasion to carry out his orders.
The Indians have been vaccinated and
are being provided with food by order
of the town authorities. It is not likely
that the Indians will attempt to come in
contact with the people of Lakeview
now that they have learned of the fright
ful instructions given to the Marshal to
shoot any of them that attempt to in
vade the healthful precincts of Lakeview.
Why Sit on the Fence and See

The pine in Oregon is good sod it is

I believe a claim of 100 acres, which
would lumber 5,000.000 feet, on some
river, or near some railroad, will bring
at least f-3,000 in two or three years. I
have induced 14 Michigan people to
come to Oregon, since I came, and have
letters that eight more are coming."
No truth was ever more opportunely
spoken than the above. A few wise
people in this county are "taking time
by the forelock" in this regard. These
jieople have taken good advice, and re
alize that the time is short in which to
take timber claims under the existing
law. Ex-Judge Wilshire, who knows a
good thing when he sees it, is confident
the old law will soon be changed, and
when the change does come it will cost
those who desire to take timber s good,
round sum. The Examiner, having
been advised reliably that the timber
act would soon be repealed, lost no time
in giving the information to its readers,
so they could take advantage of the law
before it was too late. There ia yet
time but tomorrow it may be too late.

It is probable that the lynching cases
in Modoc will be dropped as there is no

All of the men arrested for participation

dood Work In Tax Collection.
Sheriff Dunlap has made a great
cleaning up in tax collections. Up to
and including March 15th the amount
collected was $31,994.51. The 3 per
cent rebate amounted to about (1,000.
Taxpayers generally took advantage of
the rebate rather than to pay interest
and penalty after April 1st. There is
now left upon the books uncollected $10,
500. This is an excellent showing.
Last Friday, the 14th inet. was the ban
