Want Government To Irrigate.
The land owner" of Klamath coun

purpoKe of determining the actual
poult Ion of the majority of tlte peo

taking part In the Irrigation ot the
arid land" of that county. The
government found there a feunlble
Irrigation project which It might
undertake, were it not for the fact
that tnottt of the land" were under
contemplated dltche" which would
give the ranchers water.

ARE TOO SLOW.
Our recent trip to Portland over
the route which our Portland mall
comes offered ti" an opportunity to
learn where the trouble lies with our
mail service. While there we put on
foot a movement that will retult In
I s-tter service. The real condition I"
not generally knowii by our "'ople
who are Interested in the delivery of
mail from Portland. The way the
Mchedule Is now arranged we get
Portland pafH-r" four tbi " and four
nights after they are printed in Port
land. The fact that these paiers
lay In the various postofllcesliet ween
here and Portland nearly one-half
the time was disputed by some tie
fore we made the investigation, but
we will give the exact figures here
showlug how we are U'ing imposed
upon by such a service. On the
start, however, we wish to not be
understood to lie making a com
plaint a gain t the contractors, as
we presume they are filling thelrcon
troct. We will take an Oregonian, for In
stance, printed Thursday, aud trace
It to Lakeview. The paper is start
ed on Its journey at 8:30 a. m. A run
on the S. P. of 19 hours and 24 min
utes brings it to Thrall, Calif., at
3ul a. m. Friday, where it lays la
the office 12 hours and 6 minutes un
til 4 p. m., of that day. There it is
put ou the Klamath Lake railroad
and run out to Fokegama in two -hour",
reaching there at 6 p. m. ,
After a run of 2 hours it again lays
in the office 11 hours, and starts for
Klamath Falls at 5 a. m., Saturday
morning. Only 7 hours Is required
for it to reach Klamath Falls. Ar
riving at that office after a 7 hour
run it lays there 19 hours In the office
starting for Lakeview at 7 a. m.,
Sunday ruornlr.g. From Klamath
Falls to Lakeview, a run of 23 hours,
there is no delay, and reaches here.
If on schedule time at G oclock Mon
day morning. Thus it will lie seen
that the Oregonian has actually
traveled 51 hours and 24 minutes,
and layed over in the offices along
the line 42 hours and 6 minutes, or
nearly half the time.
Now, we believe, taking Into con
sideration that the government la
endeavoring to expedite the service
in all localities where it Is asked,
thar Lakeview should get this Ore
gonian, and other mall the same, In
54 hours. This would allow one
hour tor transferring the mall sack a
from the S. P. cars to the Klamath.
Lake Ky., cars, also one hour tor
making the transfer at Pokegauia
and another hour for handling the
sacks at Klamath Falls, all the time
that is needed and all the tluu that
is given In other similar Instances.
The time allowed other offices along
tho line for handling the mails have
not been reckoned in tho above, or
tampered with, so each otllco would
have the se.me time It now occupies,
which does not exceed one hour in
With this schedule arranged and
put lu force from Thrall, wo would
get our mall in 54 hours from Port
land, Instead of over 03 hours, or
nearly 40 hours earlier than we now
This schedule will be usked for by
Tho Kxaminer, aud wo sincerely
hope that every resident in this sec
j tiou ot couutry will give us their
' support iu getting It. It may bo
necessary to get up a petition, and It
so, wo hope all will bo ready to
