Judge Benson Says it is Unsurpassed In Any
Inland Town on the Pacific Coast
Everything Was a Success.
The celebration of the Fourth of
July in Lakeview this year was oue
that will always be rememliered as
the le8t ever held In the town. It
was apparent that more Interest was
taken than at any previous occasion.
The floats were handsomely gotten
up and were many.
The firing of anvils at Sun rise
wakened the people of Lakeview to
the realization of the fact that the
Nation's birthday was toherelehrat
ed The music by the Lakeview Brass
band was no small feature of the
day's entertainment. The parade
was n long one and consisted of the
Liberty wagon with the Goddess of
Liberty, Angel of Peace and 4" little
girls representing the 1'nited States;
The Brass Band; and the float of the

tlon in an Inland town on the Pacific
Coast. "I am proud of you, as I have
always been," he repeated. He re
ferred touchlngly to the old soldiers,
and sent the memories of his listeners
flying back over the 120 years of
history of our Natiou, the greatest
on earth, and naturally to the
bloody battle field where brave men
laid down and died that the country
become a nation such as It is.
"Why not revere the flag of the
United States?" he said, ,"and let the
eagle scream. Patriotism is not
dying out, ouly in the heurts of those
who forget themselves."
The Judge's remarks were to the
point, enlightening and only too
brief. Many were the remarks that
never was u better oration delivered
to the peoule in Lakeview.

Running From Forest Reserve.
I Perry McUanlel came over from
Lake City last week, where he has
had bis sheep for some time. Mr.
McDaniel says the forest reservo has
driven him out of Modoc county, and
will drive many more sheepmen out.
He advises the people of Lake coun
ty to bitterly oppose tbe creation of
a forest reserve here, as it will force
from 60 to 75 per cent of the sheep
out of the county and will also re
duce the number of cattle materially.
Mr. McDaniel may be oue of these
"transient" sheepmen that we hear
about, but he pays taxes on his
sheep, aud the county that can fur
nish the range will get the taxes.
There are likely to lie many more
"Transient" sheepmen wherever a
forest reserve Is created.
More Settlers Coming.
Mr. Geo. Hammersley and Mr.
King, who are here from Roseburg,
are looking over the country for
lauds suitable for farming. A party
of 15 people will be here in a couple
of weeks, or as soon as these gentle
men secure suitable locations for
them, who want to go on farms,
others are coming to secure timber
These men have inadu a pretty
thorough mtrcn over the state and
say this county affords better oppor
tunities for homebullders than any
uectlou they have visited, and that
the land Is more reasonable In price
than anywhere In The whole West.

The exercises In the afternoon met

Engineers Will Come.
While S. G. Bennett, the supervis
ing engineer of the Reclamation
service for the district covering the
water shed of the Sacramento river,
was in Lake county last week, he
assured us that the projects in this
part of the county were favorable to
Irrigation. He could uot make pub
lic his report, or state what It
would lie, but from hts general con
versation it was apparent that he
believed the government would send
engineers and surveyors here to
make surveys and determine pos
itively whether or not the schemes
were feasible, and that so fur as his
Investigations went the projects
were very favorable.
He found aa excellent reservoir
site ou Cottonwood, and believes
the waters of Thomas Creek could
be diverted to the Cottonwood reser
voir. The capacity of the reservoir
is sufficient for both streams, aud as
there is ouly a low lidgo separating
the two streaais In one place, where
the distance Is not so great as to
make it expensive to bring the two
streams together, it Is more than
likely that li the government takes
bold of the project one large reser
voir wffl ;tw made to answer the
purpose of storage of the surplus
waters of both Cottonwood and
The soli he says U very rich and
productive. He was also astonished
at tbe adaptability of fruit to this
climate, and Its keeptug qualities.
It is the belief here that when Mr.
Bennett left he went away with the
Impression that It Is only a matter
of the sufficiency of water that
makes any question of government
irrigation in the Drews creek and
Cottonwood sections. It Is also
believed that there Is plepty ot
water, and this will be one of tho
cheapest Irrigation projects In the
West for the number of acres of land
An editors' Reunion.
Oue might think that an Editor's
reunion was being held In Lakeview
to note the visiting editor R L. Hloss

expect either a good write-up or a
good roast, when these qulllpushers
get home, according to how they are
Impressed with us. We hope the
boys can go home with a warm spot
