The election is over, and the Republican party is to be in power for four years
more. This has been practically conceeded for some weeks. Doubtful states fell
in line at the last hour and gave Roosevelt an overwhelming majority, while Republi-
can states recorded the largest majority ever given a candidate for President. New
York swings into the Republicans' columns with 185,000 majority, New Jersey follows
with big majority, and nearly every state classed as doubtful have shown their appre
ciation of the past four year's prosperity. The latest reports from Missouri gives
Parker only about 600 the lead and it is believed the rural districts will show a heavy
gain for Roosevelt. -
The latest unofficial returns fiom Oregon gives Roosevelt 40,000 plurality in the
state. No accurate estimate can be made yet as to the vote cast, but it is presumed
it will be light.
Lake county gave Roosevelt about 225 plurality. All precincts except three
are in and the vote now stands Roosevelt 345, Parker 126, Watson' 9, Debbs 4 and
Swallow 4. - Official returns from all precincts may change these figures somewhat,
Thousands of democrats must have voted for Roosevelt, so it is safe to say he is a
popular President and satisfactory to the large majority.
Amos Boyd entered a quarter sec
tion under the pre-euiptlou law sev
eral years ago and received patent,
before the swampy character of the
land was established, and with that
exceptiou, Commissioner Klchards
has anuotinced his determination to
reject all pre-emption claims for
these Waruer Lake lauds.
A short time ago the Secretary of
the luterlor rejected the pre-emption
filing of Louis Frakes, and the land
olllce subsequently turned down
eight other preemption filings made
by Alonsso 1. Frakes, Nathau M.
Frakes, Lorenzo D. Frakes, Edward
L. Mosham, Samuel K. Sloau, Joseph
L. Morrow and Alvln N. Burnett.
These parties are seeking to have
their cases brought before the Secre
tary of the Interior. If they succeed,
the precedent lu Lewis N. Frakes'
etiso Indicates that the Laud Office
deelslou will be upheld.
They Opened the Bottle.
While Drs. Daly and Hall were ab
sent from the drugstore Monday
morning Jim Maxwell and Ebon Ta
tro started In on a scientific course
of experiments ia chemistry. They
opened a bottle of nitric add, and here
the experiment ceased and the boys
turned their attention to extinguish
ing a general fire which followed.
The boys' chothes were badly burned
and the floor nud counter were badly
The case might have proved serious
for the boys but they secured a bot
tle of aiuoula aud with this extingu
ished, the tire which was consuming
them. Their pauts were completely
could stop the fire.
The lesson should prove a valuable
one to the boys as they were inform
ed that it in even dangerous for scien
tific, men to mix certain chemicals,
and It Is absolutely hazardous for
anieteurs to engage lu such pastime.

Wm. Harvey, the sheepman, was
interviewed on the subject of Lake
county's out-put In mutton this fall.
He is considered about as good
authority on this subject as there Is
in the county. H- gave out the fol
lowing facts as an approximate es
timate: There were, at the beginning of the
selling season about 00,001) bead of
merchantable mutton In the county.
Not mo e jian 20,000, or one-third of
this number were disposed of, and
most of what was disposed of, prob
ably two-thirds were driven to the
railroad and shipped to commission
merchants or sold at the railroad.
Of those actually sold within the
county, Mr. Harvey thluks there
were not more than 7,000 head. He
thinks probably halt of the old
weathers were disposed of aud the
rest of the sales and shipments were
taken from the dry ewes and year
lings. Sheepmen have -made up their
bands for the desert and will not
sell now till spring, in fact the great
er portion of the dry sheep are now
on the winter range, and of course
cannot be disturbed till spring. Mr.
Harvey has every confidence that
sheep will command a good figure
in the spring. Next year should be a
prosperous one, with plenty of mon
ey iu circulation. This assertion
warrants Itself when the fact is borne
in mind that the usual number of
sheep will be shorn here, and besides
the two-thirds of the mutton that
ordinarily would have left the coun
ty will also be shorn here, these too
being the heaviest shearers of the
bands, and will no doubt shear as
much wool as one-fourth the stock
sheep in the county. Add one-fourth
to the usual outpus of wool and at
the advance price that presentcondl
tlons warrant, and 40,000 mutton
sheep to go on the market Imme
diately after shearing time and they
too at a good price, and it will be
readily seen that the returns from
wool and mutton will unload a
large sum of money in the county.
