Entertainments this Week.
Lovers of comedy, music and farce
were entertained by local talent two
evenings during the week. On Monday
evening local players, under f'e man
agemeot of Messrs. Phelps and Holmes,
produced the hleh class comedy "Can
tata Racket" before a fair sized audience.
The efforts of the players appeared o
please, and the entertainment was
spoken of as a success. On Tuesday
evening a fine musical program, in
which some of the best local talent was
engaged, was given to a large audience.
Judging from the hearty applause
everybody was pleased, and well they
might be, for no better musical program
was ever given in Lakeview. The
Examiner has not the space for an ex
tended account of the entertainments
it would take a column to do the affair
justice. As a warming up part on Tues
day evening the entertai nment conclud
ed with the side-splitting farce, "A
Mock Trial, by twenty young men,
which was well played.
We understand that yentenlay after
noon George Whnrton and Joe Fuller
had received subscriptions to the amount
of fwO, and expected to raise the
amount to $750, for races in Lakeview
during Fourth of July week. This
will incure $1,500 for puises, as the
Lake County Agricultural Association
will offer an amount eqnal to what is
raised by the citizens.

office of the county clerk last week, au

Elmer I. Lutz and 8. A. . Porter, two

visitors in the county seat hint week.
I Vov'uw, Or. Apl. 5th, (To the Edl
t -t:-lii the last Uaue of the Lake
i ty Examiner a long article was de
voted to the subject of amallpoi being
at the Hotel Lakeview and the idea was
conveyed, by Innuendo or otherwise,
that proper precautions were not taken
in the interest of the pnblic. and that
the Indian, who had the amallpoi at
the Indian-camp, contracted the disease
by washing clothes at the hotel. Now,
in justice to myself, and to the people of
Lakeview, I wish to say, that I have
this day interviewed every physician,
who resides in the town, and each one
has assured me, that there ia not now,
nor has there Wen a rase of smallpox
or any other eruptive disease in Lake
view or anywhere else within fifteen
mile of this place for the lat five
weeks, except at the Indjan camp, and
that there is but one very mild rase
there at the present time.
The last case of sickness at the hotel,
which showed any eruption or rash,
was my neice, Miss Lulu Garrett. On
Sunday, Feb. 23rd, w hile sitting in the
parlor, one of the ladies present no
t'ced a few pimples on her face. Mv
wife at once sent her to her room. That
evening I told one of the physicians,
w ho was dining at the hotel, that Lulu
had an eruption on her face, but other
wise he was feeling perfectly well.
He said "be very careful and establish
a strict quarantine by keeping her in
her room ; to lock the door of the same
and to keep her there until she got well
and when she did get welt, to thor
oughly fumigate, not only herself, but
the room and ita contents." All of
which was done and aa ewry guest of
the hotel well knows.
Mies Gairett was sick but a few days
and nevtr ill enough ta be confined to
her bed, and the very fact that the dis
ease did not spread and that no other
case of any kind of eruption has ap
peared in the hotel since that time
shows how thoroughly and effective the
quarantine was kept.
Now, as to the Indian woman con
tracting the disease by washing clothes
at the hotel: On Feb. 19th, the books
of the hotel show that the Indian wo
man was discharged and that Mr. and
Mrs. Fernham were employed to do
that work in the laundry, and are still
As Miss Garrett was not taken sick
until Feb. 23rd or five days after the
discharge of the Indian woman, it
therefore seems impossible that the In
dian woman could become infected by
anything that Miss Garrett had.
In view of these facts, which are well
known to every guest of the hotel, it is
a great injustice to me, aa well as to the
entire interests of Lakeview, to publish
a lot of stuff, based on alleged street
rumor, about the existence of anch a
periods dineaoe as smallpox.

JOHN ALLEN WITHERS
The I'uieley 1'oet has a brief biograph
history of the late John A. Withers,
whose death at Paisley was announced
in The Examiner last week, from which
w e take the follow ing :
"John Allen Withers was born in Ben
ton county, Oregon on May 1st, 1854:
Came to Lake county in 1871 ; he was
married to Miss Melviua Hadley in
1875. Three children was the result of
this union, one. a girl died several years
ago, and two sons, Chester L. and C.
Wayman, survive their father and are
at present interested in the merchan
dise business in Paisley," He was nearly
48 years of age. His death shocked the
community where he was so well and
favorably known. He was a man with
an unsullied character; a man who knew
what honcNty was, and who practiced it
all his life. Of kind and gentle manners,
loving in the family circle, true to his
friends and generous to his aquaintariccH,
he was much renpected and greatly admired.
