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 va ii. hi s M.

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. ' i'.v t ! i i ; t k .J lliv,n-.

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 lauds. 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. i 1 ' ' .. r i - , ., ;.. er. '1 ii" ii.nid played "l'i.;i-" and other familiar and a ppn pria Le uirs. The exercises In the afternoon met the expectations of all, and were en joyed by the largest crowd ever seen, in Lakeview. The grand ball at night was a success as was other features and an Immense crowd attended. The sup per was elaborate. 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 Thomas creeks. 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 covered. An editors' Reunion. Oue might think that an Editor's reunion was being held In Lakeview to note the visiting editor R L. Hloss of the Alturas, modoc County, Cali fornia, New Era, B, M. Bailey of tbe Crook Countv, Oregon,' Journal, L. N. Kelsay of the Silver Lake, Lako County, Oregon, Oregonlan, are all with us this week. Lakeview may 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 In their hearts for Lakeview, Secretary of State May Dead. Secretary of State John Hay died at New berg, N. II., on the morning of July first, at 12:25: Ills demise was sudden auB a surprise to those who were watching the course of bis Illness.
