three men had la-en killed there In a

C. Thruston's threshing engine was

expected to have the plant ready for

of the machinery was missing, which
caused an indelinate delay. The
missing part was wired for and no

The Development League.
At the hiBt meeting of Hie Luke county
Development League a committee waa
appointed to ascertain the amount of
land Huueeptible of irrigation on tile
Meat .Vide, or al leant that which could
be irrigated by the waters of Cottonwood
and Thomas creeks. Dr. 1$. Daly,
Daniel Boone and J. N. H'ataon were
appointed on this committee. They
have filed their report with the secre
tary of the League. There was also a
committee appointed to go over on the
ll'est Hide and get together all of the
farmers who were intereuted iu the ir
rigation of their lands and organize a
branch league and make application to
the government to irrigate those lands.
Also the League requested branch
leagues to be organized, one at Paisley
and one at Silver Lake.
It is only ft little more than a week
now till the regular meeting night of
the League, and there will be crowded
Into that meeting so much regular busi

J. J. Monroe Sells Store.
Mr. J. J. Monroe, who for the past
ten years has conducted a merchan
dise business at Add, In Warner, last
week sold out his business to two
gentlemen of Antelope, in Crook
county, by the name of C. F. Powne
and K. A. Friday. These gentlmeu
were in Lakeview last week, and we
understand they will put in a f 10,600
stock of general merchandise.
The new firm takes possession

uoubt will, do a good business, as
they have a good field to work in.
$150,000 Between Them.
The board of government engineers
and the owners of the Klamath can
al had a meeting at Klamath Falls
last week and tried to come to terms
on the sale of the canal to the gov
ernment. The canal people held out 1
for $250,000 while the governments
best offer was $100,000. The Canal
Co. were restrained from diverting
water from the lake, aud the owners
aver they will go into the the courts
with their case and will fight hard
for their rights.
It is believed that the Western
Pacirlc will open up a portion of the
now isolated territory, comprising
part of Nevuda, Northern California
and Southeastern Oregon, to the
world. There are millions of acres
of good agricultural lands in these
three states that is absolutely cutoff
from railroad transportation that
have heretofore been exclusively de
voted to stockraising, Ifut with
transportation facilities would form
an important part of the fertile
The route taken by this road
! through Northern California and
I Southeastern Nevada, almost 11
Jsurcs the tapping of Southeast
' ern Oregon. It is understood
that the U'estern Pacific will
take up the N-C-O road, and iu the
event such a merger Is effected, the
promoters of the new line could
hardly overlook the importance of
the rich territory which formed the
future of the N-C-O. The late pre
diction that the latter road would
extend from its present terminus, at
Madeline, north through Modoc
county. California, through Lake
county, Oregon and Harney county,
Oregon, thence in an easterly direc
tion, affords grounds for the belief
that the road will be made a part of
the Western Pacitic system.
Assessor Gets Salary.
A law passed at the legislature at
its last session gives the assessor
a salary of fd,000, instead of the old
law under which they were paid by
the day. Formerly the assessor re
ceived for his services about $800 a
year, thus he is benefitted about f 1200
by the new law. This year, being a
year to take census, he will have
considerable more work to perform,
as the duty is bis to take the census.

rirs. H. Baines Dead.
The many friends of Mrs. II.
Larnes, formerly of New Fine Creek,
were shocked to learn of her death
in San Francisco on the 17th of tills
month. Mr. Karnes went to Cal
ifornia last Fall for the benefit of
his wife's health. They lived at
Point Richmond all winter and, we
understand, a few weeks ago Mrs.
ISarn.'s was taken to a hospital In
San Francisco for treatment, and
Mrs. Barnes was the daughter ot
Mr. Pleasants of Willow Ranch, aud
a step-sister of Mrs. J. J. Monroe, of
Adel. She lias resided in this coun
try nearly all her life, and was loved
by all who knew her. A husband
and two small children are left to
mourn the loss of a wife and mother,
und a host of acquaintances who
are saddened at the taking away so
early In life of a true friend.
The remains of Mrs. Pearl Uarnes
were brought to Willow Ranch for in
terment, and were laid to rest last
Sunday. Rev. II. Smith preached
the funeral at Bethel Church.
Several members of the D. of II.
Lodge of Lakeview, of which order
Mrs. Barnes was a member, attend
ed the funeral.
