We found the people of the' Bly country happy and contented; and well tbey might be, they have a good country, though the town Is small. There Is good prospects for abundant crops In that section, grass Is starting up and some of the stockmen are turning their stock out. XI ra. Jaa. Taylor and daughter spent a day In the town in the inter est of a social organization known as "The Young People's Society." This organization Is one whose pur pose Is for the upbuilding of thecoiu muulty and the bettermeut of soctnl conditions. In talking of the socie ty Xirs. Taylor said: "We have no prrnertfr. nop ehnreh or - Knurls v school for our youug people to go to, aud we are utrivlug to keep iu exlstance au organization that will tend to lift up and Improvo morally and socially." The people of Bly are to be commended for their hearty support of such a move and The Examiner will have more to say about this Jn the future, for we have arranged to keep our readers In touch with this movement. coming summer. This, too Is great encouragement for our people to be come Inclose communication with the outside world, and Is a move toward the, goal progressiveness assures. Thfc Bell Go. proposes to operate a day aud night service to lily, commencing, we believe, this week. The little town of Bly with only three business establishments, besides the postofiice, raised $.'!00 to have the telephone Hue built to that town. Kuykendall Defends. Seuator Kuykendall, la reply to certain questions addressed to him by the referendum committee of McMlnnvllle, makes a manly state ment of his own Independence, and freedom from any undue In flu nee in supporting appropriations for the Normal Schools, and acquits his associates in the legislature of act ing under such influence, and the members from counties in which Normal Schools are men tallied from any attempt to use such Influence. He shows also that the appropria tion was inado as it has been uni formly made by preceding Jegislu- turen, without protest from the people. Senator Kuykendall destroys the allegation of graft, or legislation by so called log rolling methods, Lake County Out of Debt. In another column of thia issue ap pears notice from the Treasurer of Lake County to the holders of all warrants drawn and protested on or before the 11 th, day of March 1905, that there is money in the treasury for' their pay ment. This is believed to include every demand against the county; and it is further understood there will be credit balance of 12,600 after all legal existing demands are paid. It is a pleasure to us, to ccngratulate the people of Lake County upon this achievment of our County Court, and es pecially the men who achieved this. When it is remembered that, three years ago, Lake County had outstanding and unpaid, f(3,000of indebtedness; and that the board has given the County as good a service in other respects as any former board has given, and that has al so, been paid; then we can see more clearly the value of that 'business tact which has brought such good results. There is, underlying thjs, another very interesting fact. This three years history of accomplishment by the ad ministration, places beyond dispute the fact that Lake County may, under skill ful management, now begin to make provision for taking up some public im provement, without creating the least distress fo tax payere of J.ake County, and without danger of again allowing indebtedness to accumulate. This is proven as clearly as a truth can be dein- -onstrated We-hope to eee this done. Whatever one is deemed most urgent, of a member of works, for public betterment. Exemptions, All the State papers have taken the position that by au error of pun ctuation, all household goods would be exempt frcm taxat ion; r, to the amount of nine hundred dollars. At torney General Crawford has given an Informal opinion that the last clause of the section establishes the exemption to be three hundred dob lars. He will instruct assessors to Ignore the error in punctuation. An Example in Subtraction. If you have ten dollars to expend for goods aud you thluk of sending away for them, take a joutil and a piece of paper aud figure, Use the catalogue pikes, postage and dis satisfaction for your ulnuojid; The advertisements in The Examiner for your subtrahend, aud your remain der will be your profits by buying at home. The Stark Case. Acting under the advice and re quest of the Oregon Annual Confer euce of theM. E. Church, Itev. Bnyder formulated charges of dishonesty and lying against Itev. J. B. Stark, former Tastor of XL E. Church at Lakevlew, Oregon, Testimony concerning the above charges was taken at the XL E. Church, on Xlonday XIarch 13th. XIr, fcnyder is not prosecuting, but is simply acting In the case; tak ing testimony at thncomniand of his conference. Not Satisfactory. It Is now reported by the examin ing chemists that there was no strychnine found In the stomach or other organs of lira. Stanford's body. , Yet physlolaus say, and Insist, there was present In the appearance of the body many of the evidences of deuth by poison. Order Books at Once. The Trustees of the Library and Beading ltoom Association held a meeting Saturday evening and de cided to begin immediately to fur-. nish and equip the Beading Boom. All necessary arrangements have, been made and each member of the board of Trustees has tuken on them selves to push the work to com-. pletlon and do all that is possible so the Readlug Room may be opened by April 15th. Miss Lulu Garrett has accepted the postlon as Librarian and a more competent person could not have . been chosen. A donation of a stove is greatly desired. Iet some one add this ben efaction to the long list of contribu tions. Miss Sands the. Secretary Is collect- lug the money subscribed and the committee is etlll soliciting, hoping to make the funds sufficient so no falluro can bo anticipated. An entertainment Is to be given in the near future to swell the fund. Homo talent will participate and many entirely new aud Interesting features will be produced. The establishment of the Library and Beading Boom Is the combined efforts of everyone, Xlay the good work continue, and the product be a luovoment of Intellect for tho town of Lakevlew, What Should be Done. It the legislature had passed a law disestablishing two of the Normal Schools, and had made reasonblo ap propriations for those which remain ed, aud for other institutions, wo should hear nothing of referuuduru movement. . What more rational course for the people than to do what the legislature should have done? Action by initiation instead of by referendum would accomplish this, aud certainly end tho matter as it should le.
