REGISTRATION IN 1900.
In June, 1900, there were H97 voters
registeted in Lake county, and there
were 764 ballots cat at that election.
Last Monday the registration took8 at
the office of the County Clerk showed
572 registrations. There are probably
250 or more electors in this county who
have not yet registered, and there will
doubt lee lea good number who will be
unable to vote on election day on ac-1
count of not having registered.
The registration of voters in the var- j

Lake County Warrants are now less
than two years and six months in ar
rears. All the old warrants have leen
paid probably much to the disappoint
ment of professional warrant and bond
purchasers. The reduction of the debt,
contracted under the old Democratic
administration, lias been made by a
Republican County Court, and still
H. Daly and his supporters are talking
about the "extravagance of the present
County Court" and the dreadful state
of affairs that Lake county's taxpayers
w ill have to meet in the future, if Judge
Tonningsen and Commissioner Martin
are not retired at this election. "The
County is being sunk deeper and deeper
in debt," say these people, but they do
not present facts to back up their state
ment. The County records are the
authority! Let them take the records
and prove their assertions, and disprove
the evidence that Lake County is in a
better financial condition now than it
has lieen in years. No one will have
the nerve to ever accue the "independ
ent" Hustler's lightning calculator of
being an expert accountant after looking
over his mass of litures to thow the
terrible calamity which is about to
befall the tuxpavcis of this couutv.
It is also a disappointment to the op
I ponents of Toimiiip'sen and Martin
(and especially to li. Daly, who deals in
. cuunty warrants and bonds) that under
' the present state of affairs Lake County
Warrants are today selling at par
their face value. Under this condition
I they cannot whittle off enough margin

was "going deeper and deeper in debt"
as the Daly people would have the
voters believe, does any intelligent per
son believe that Lake County Warrants
would be selling at par, just now ? Not
by any means. The opposition will
have to find a more plausible story.

It will bs remembered that The Kx
aininer, several weeks ago, gave the
first and only news regarding an im
pending bill in Congress to repeal the
timber land act. The news is about to
be confirmed now, as Senator Clark has
introduced a bill for that purtxise.
Speaking of the Clark measure the Or
egonian says :
It may be that the bill promoted by
Senator Clark, of Montana, for repeal of
the present timber and stone act and
substitution of a plan for selling timber
from Government land to the highest
bidder, is not the best remedy that can
be devised for present abuses, but at the
same time it may be seriously ques
tioned wbetber the timber and stone
act as it stands is so perfect that it
should not be touched. It may be said
that the purpose of the law is to give
the people a chance to acquire timber
rether than to place it within the con
trol of rich corporations who have the
money to bid it in at public sales.
But what is the result? The corpora
tions get the timber lands anyway, and
all kinds of crooked practice are re
sorted to by entrymen who find it
profitable to serve the lumbermen by
taking land for them. And the lumber
corporations now "script" large areas of
timber laud cutting out in those cases all
participation on the part of the indi
vidual entrymen. True, they are not
permitted to place script on unsurveyed
land' but formal application and guar
anty of expense of survey will easily
change any desired tract from the un
surveyed to the surveyed class, in
'vhich script will apply, or manipula
tion of entries will be serviceable. Timber-grabbers
seem to be getting pretty
nearly all they want, as the law and
practice now stand. There is room to
doubt that Senator Clark's bill is en
tirely desirable, but it is also evident
to most people that present methods of
handling our timber land will soon re
sult in putting them all in possession of
the lumbering corporations or specula
tors, with small benefit to the Gov
ernment. If it be business logic for
tim'H?r lands to go in large tracts to
those who have the capital necessary to
manufacture and market lumber, why
!,i- coiinty. '1 he hh,,uld not the t oivei ntueiit in some
from the County j manner recognize them?
Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Russill Have
Narrow Escape From Death
in a Runaway Accident.
K. M. Russill the Madeline landlord,
and wife, and Mrs. Lafe Centers ar
rived in Alturas from Madeline on
April l!)th, says the Alturas New Kra.
While coming down the South Fork
mountain one of the horses suddenly be
came frightened and started to run
and kick. Dick did all he could to
check them, but they proved too much
for him, and 8on ran the carriage with
its occupants into a barbed wire fence,
tipping them out and on to the fence;
the team broke loose from the wagon
and ran on down the road. Dick waa
thrown against a post and severely hurt
in the chest and shoulder, while his
wife had her left thumb severed from
the band by a barb, and two of th
Centers children were horribly cut and
scratched about the face, some of the
cuts being very serious.
Dick went on to Likely and secured
another team and brought the injured
crowd to Alturas. Dr. Gibson was sent
for to attend Mrs. Russill and iound it
necessary to amputate her thumb above
the secoud joint, a the bone was pro
truding to quite an extent. This he
did and she is now getting along nicely.
Dr. Coppedge was called to attend the
little Centers children, and found a
number of bad cuts, which he bandaged
up and they are getting along all right
now. Jick is able to be around with
lis arm in a sling, and left for home
his morning, while his wife will be com
pelled to remain here until the doctor
uan remove the stitches. Dick is en
joying a nice hotel business at Made-
ine and was coming in with his wife to
pend a few days visiting with his old
Ifriends. We hope the next time be
comes in it w ill be under more favor
for Joint Representative, to the voters of j liability

Lake County Horses Stolen.
On April 17th a man whose name was
not learned because he did not tarry
long in Lake county took two horses
belonging to Rryan IJros. ol Clover Flat,
and decamped. He was heard of south
and at Susanville he sold the animals
and then returned to Amedee, presum
ably to make his escape on the railroad.
He was apprehended at Amedee by a
deputy sheriff from whom he suosequent
ly made his esoatw, took another horse
from a near-by rancher and had not
been heard of again up to yesterday at
noon. Rryan Brothers will recover
their horses, or the value of the animals,
and there is a good prospect of recap
turing the thief.
W. A. liell, chairman of the Crook
County Republican central committee,
and a lawyer of Trineville, was a busi
ness visitor in Lakeview this week.
Mr. liell came on land business.
"What Ails Him"?
Lakeview seems to be somewhat of a
shining mark. It recently had the
smallpox, lias several railroads pointed
her way, and now is threatened with a
case of "too much" telephone. How
ever, Lakeview has wonderful staying
and recuperative qualities and w ill sur
vive the ordeal. Cedarville Record.
Wonder why our friend of the Record
is so opposed to Lakeview having tele
phone systems? He continues to throw
long distance shots at our telephone en
terprise, and it would seem that he is
disappointed in someway that he had
laid a plan to go into the business him
self in this territory. "Hello!" Stunley,
what's the matter with you?

If the I'ost man could see the many

Water Storage for Irrigation.
W T. Cressler, accompanied by .
Wm. McCormack, returned from his
Guano ranch last week. He found
the big reservoir, constructed last
fall, in good condition and containing
nine feet of water, which, however,
is not its full capacity, as it will hold
much deeper water, says the Cedarville
Record. The past winter has not been
favorable for testing the strength of the
nam, but he is well satislicd w ith it, so
much so, in fact, that he w ill start in
constructing another and much larger
reservoir the first of June, and w hen
that is completed hn will have sufficient
water under control to irrigate hun
dreds of acres of land and cause them to
yield an abundance of hay, w here now
only range grass grows. Mr. Cressler
is practically about the first man to
turn his attention to the storage of
water, and as a result he will greatly
enhance the value of his large ranch in
