hind Independently of the (). K. &
Abi'jil am Lincoln oucedecliiied the
pohitlon of Governor of Oregon Ter
ritory. Though not generally know n
It Ih none t he less t rue. After I lu olllce
had been refused by John Marshall
afterwards Chief Justice of tlie Su
preme Court of the I'nited States It
was tendered to tlie great "rail
nplitter." Ills reply nine character
istically: "No, Hlr-ee!" Lincoln re
fused the position, not from any lack
of appreciation of the honor or un
willingness to bear t he responsibility.
The real cause whm the unwillingness
of his wife to undergo the hardships
of a trip acrosH the plains and the
privations of life In the far Went.

(i.iine Warden Ijuiiuhy in Ills annu
al report make Home very good re
commendations, especially for Fast
cm Oregon. Only one of these
should not apply to Lake County,
and that Im the prohibition of killing
of sagehens for a number of years.
They are very plentiful here, and are
not considered by many to be good
eating. The recommendation to In
crease the bounty on cougars and
wild cats from $2 toSjn would be fav
orably received by Lake County. See
the report in another coluiu.

M-r cent whs probably
added, bringing the amount up to
the latter figure.
No donbf the cane will be appealed
to the Supreme Court. The bomlM

ami were residents of Lakeview at
the time of tlie alleged shortage, but
only two, J. K. licrnard and Jeo.
.lainmerthal reside here. To Hay
that it Im a hard blow to these gentle
men to have to pay thin amount Im
putting it light, oh it was not their
fault, and neeniH like an Imposition
to make them pay It. On tlie other
hand Lake county cannot afford to
lose It, and the courts must decide.
District Attorney A. E. RcameM In
oetnjf rteHervedly congratulated on
IiIh HticceHH In necurlng a verdict in
h Ih favor in the two Neilon casen.
The fact that he was arrayed against
hucIi well known legal talent an C. A.
Cogsw ell and A. S. Haiumoud, inaken
It a victory that Mr. Itemnes is no
doubt proud of. ISesides Deputy pint.
Atty. W. .1. Moore, Mr, Iteamca had
the assist ance of Attonu yL. F.Conn,
whose counsel ably assisted lu
bringing the above verdicts.
The exieiise to the County in tlur

reached In the Supreme Court it will
be considerable more.
Samuel Peyser Dead.
A. It ic her received a telegram from
San Francisco Molality stating that
S. Peyser was very sick, jind request
ed that his daughter and grand
daughter came down at once. Mrs.
PieU'r and daughter Dorothy start
ed on Tuesday's southern stage.
Latkk. Mr. Pielier telegraphed
Tusdjiy to tind out how Mr. Peyser
whs, and the answer came back
that lie had died Suuday night. No
furtlier particulars were learned.
Samuel Peyser was about 76 years
old, and was well known in lake
view where he was a resident for a
number of yoirs. He was a very
small dignified man. and he will bo
greatly missed by his friends.
Three children survive the deceased,
Pave and Abe Peyser and Mrs. A.
Pleber. The liereaved relatives have
the sympathy of many friends.
The new Oregon Code, compiled
by Judge C. It. Pellinger and W. W.
Cotton. Is in two volumes, and com
prises K0 pages. The general ar
rangement of the Code is practically
the same as Hill's Code of 1!2. Tlie
state does not sell the books, but
the law requires the publishers, Pan
croft, Whit ney & Co., to keep them
on sale for six years at not to exceed
12'erset. The local attorneys of
Lakeview have each received a copy
and the County Clerk will soon re
ceive copies for each of the County
officers and each of the justices of tho
jHUiee of the County.
Not to have a Christmas dinner is
not to properly observe Christinas. To
have to cook a Christmas dinner is lots
of work. If von wish to observe Christ
mas and not go the trouble and ex
pense of getting up a dinner, go to Ho

big preparations for you.
