Died En route to Lake view.
II'. P. Overton, aged about 24 years, a
resident of Pluah, Oregon, died last
Friday while enroute to Lakeview.
Mr. Overton had been sick for several
days, but the serious nature of his illness
was not realized and it was late U'cJiies
day evening before a doctor wua sum
moned. H ill George made the trip to
town and Dr. Hall responded to thecall,
arriving in I'lush early Thursday morn
ing. The physician found that Mr.
Overton had a completely strangulated
bowel, ol tiie most latal type, recovery
from which being one of the rarest oc
curiences in medicine.
The unfortunate man had a meagre
show by operative measures, if Lake
view could ho reached, where he could
have the closest attention subsequent
to operation. Mr.Overton wasapower
ful young man, and it waa thought his
vitality would justify taking this one
chance for life. A plain statement of
the facta was made to Mr. Overton and
the family, and ho bravely accepted the
alternative, fully realizing tho hardships
and danger of the long ride.
A good bed waa arranged in an easy
riding vehicle and the patient made as
conifortablo as possible.
Dr. Hall then returned and made
preparations for an iiiiiniidiato epila
tion, but all efforts to give the young
man the one slender chance for his lifo
came to naught. He succomed while
enroute, near the Drake Camp, about

The local land office ofliclals here
and every real estate agent in Lake
view are receiving dozens of letters
every week from pcrtles inquiring
about the release of the forest lands
in this laud district. We are send
ing out hundreds of copies of The
I.xaininer containing the released
lands to these parties, and it is be
lieved t hat a rush will be made for
illl t he lands, made vacant by this
order of the department, after the
2:!d day of May, when the lands w ill
be subject to entry. Owing to a re
cent bill that passed Congress and '
signed by the President, no scrip
can be placed on any of these lands,
and it will be taken by actual bona
fide settlers. The repeal of the lieu
land haw. which has been the foun
dation of the famous land frauds in
the public land states, will make it
almost impossible for boodlers and
grafters to work their fraudulent
schemes to beat the government out
of its lands, and permit of a more
equitable process of locating lauds.
There is about 175,000 acres of
land released within a rudius of 30
miles of Lakeview, mostly covered
with valuable .timber and some
good agricultural lands, to be upeu
for settlement on and after May 23d
under the timber and stone act aud
the homestead law. This does not
include all the lands released, as
there Is a large body of land l the
northern .part of the county, that
will be opened at the same lime.
There Is every reason to believe this
land will not lie vacant any length
of time, as it is ktiown that there is
not another body of merchantable
timber between it and the eastern
boundary of the state. With the
prospects of irrigation by the gov
ernment of our arid lauds, w hich is
certain to bring railroads, these
lands w ill be considered first of any
In the western states as valuable
It Is not idle prattle when we say
thatforLake county people to get
ahead of the hundreds of non-residents
who are now looking to Luke
county for lauds, both timber anil
agricultural, It will be necessary for
them to secure their timber tit tho
earliest possible moment when these
lands are released. It may be said
that most of the valuable timber
was taken before the reserve was
created. Some of It was, but there
yet remains hundreds of quarter sec
tions that Is just as good as any
taken at that time; and there Is not
a quarter section of laud In Lake
county that has even a small pro
portion of timber ou it that Is not
worth many times what H costs,
$ U.fiO per acre.
