Whit, our Neighbor Think.
Col. Tbonipeon of the Alturaa Itain-
doaler, who paid Lakevlew a visit re
cently, the first time lu 11 yearn,
gave (Jooso Inko Valley, partly in Mo-dm-
and partly In Lake County, a
glowing write-up. In npoaking of the
farms he ald :
"On every band were evidences of
thrift, prosx-rlty and good taste.
Beautiful farm houses, many of them
iiite pretentious, and abining with
new paint, have replaced the cabins of
pioneer days. New and comodioint
barmi were everywhere iuen, while the
ImmeuHe rleks of hay gave asauranco
that the hundreds of cattle and horsen
were amply provided for. Shade trees
and orchardM surrounded the farm
Iioiisch lending additional charm to the
quiet, prosperous scene. "
Of I'lne Cre-k and Iakevicw Mr.
Thoiiipsou said :
"We passed through New l'ine ('reek
without a stop. Tlie town, half iu Cal
ifornia and half in Oregon, has grown
U-yoiid our comprehension. From a
stage station it has grown to a thriv
ing village, with stores, drug stores
and livery stables.
We reached Ijiikeview at (Jrlid and re
ceived a hearty welcomo from our old
friend, F. 1. Light, landlord and
manager of the town's chief hostelry
tho Hotel Ijakcview. This is the most
commodious, best arranged and Wst
conducted hotel in the nort hern coun
try and is indeed a credit to the en
terprising and public spirited citizens
On every hand tho samo pride and
I public hpirit manifested itself. Iirick
and concrete buildings have replaced
the old mmshaklo structures of the
long ago. Stores, drug stores, and
even saloons presented a neat and at
tractive appearance. All were neat and
arranged in the Ut of taste present
ing in fact, a citylled air."

Reaching for the Coast.
Readers of Tbe Examiner will re
member a few weeks ago an Item ap
pearing in these columns to tbe effect
that a movement was on foot for tbe
construction of a railroad from Eur
eka, California to Casper, Wyoming,
with branch lines, backed by suffi
cient capital to push the road to com
pletion in three years. The main line
to pass through Lakeview.
The following dispatch from Eureka
appeared in the Oregonian of the 8th.
F. L. Evans, a civil engineer, claim
ing to be backed ly one of the trans
continental railroad magnates, . has
proposed to build a railroad from
Eureka east to Casper, Wyo., there to
connect With four lines. He comes
before Humholt people asking a guar
antee bonus of 2120,000 in the event
that the road is completed within
three years. The proposed route Is
from Eureka, the terminus, to Delta
Trinity River, striking Pitt Rier, fol
lowing that stream through the Sierra
Nevada Mountains, touching Alturas
thence to Lakevlew and Vole, in Ore

Nob Expected to Live.
A. W. Manring received a letter from
a doctor in the San Barnidioo, Calif.,
hospital, stating that a man named W.
R. Bond was brought there for treat
ment for a broken hip, which injury
he received while assisting some va
queros in roping wild horses in a cor
ral. The letter stated that Mr. Bond
wrs out of funds and asked to be ad
vised as to the possibility ofjhim get
ting financial assistance from here.
Mr. Manring sent him some money,
and received a telegram later stating
Mr. Bond's chances for recovery were
very slim. Mr. Bond is an old timer
in Lake county, having resided iu
Warner valley for many years, where
he still owns a ranch, leased by his
nephew, E. E. Boud. Mr. Bond's
many frieuds in this county will be
pained to learn of his misfortune, and
hope for his recovery.
May Irrigate Malheur.
It begins to look now like Oregon
would, after all, receive some benefit
from the- immense reclamation fund
that the state has contributed to so
liberally. The following annuonce
meut from Washington impresses one
with the belief that the Malheur pro
ject is not dead yet :
"Director Walcott, of the reclama
tion service, has recommended to the
secretary of the interior that wagon
grant lauds be excluded from the Mal
heur irrigation broject and that the
work be commenced at once. This
leaves 20,000 acres to be reclaimed at
a cost of 800,000. It is expected that
Secretary Hitchcock will follow the
recommendation. Twenty-three thous
and acres of land in Oregon were
withdrawn for use iu the Malheur
project ou the 3rd of this" month."

The ledge matter is about 7 feet
thick aud appears to be a normal vein
formation. Assays have beeu obtain

indicates a paying property. Mr.
Maupiu will make such explorations
as may bo necessary to show the sub
stantial character of the find. Ash

propriating 1,00,000, for the celebra

Announces His Plat-'
form this Week.
HE IS A LIFE-IONG REPUBLICAN
Promineut Man in Baker City,
Havlnjr Been Elected May
or Several Times.
Mr, C. A. Johns, of Baker City, Re
publican candidate for Governor, was
born in Jackson county, Missouri on
June 25, 1857; came to Oregon in Dec
emlter following year and has been
here ever since. He received early
education in the public schools at
Scio. Linn county; Was admitted to
the bar in 1881 and commenced to
practice law at Dallas, Oregon. Served
ascounty judge of Polk County by
appointment. He moved -to Baker
City in 1888, where be has since resid
ed. He is an attorney by profession,
has never held a political office. Was
formerly twice mayor of Baker City
and is the present mayor, having been
elected by the bigest majority any one
ever received for the office. Is serv
ing fourth consecutive term as School
Director and received every vote cast
at the lost election. No person has
stronger home endorsement.
Following are Mr. John's beliefs as
to state government and tbe platform
npon which he announces his candi
dacy : The affairs of state should be
conducted with a high sense of honor
and on sound business principles and
a broad plane of equality, and to that
end there should be a watchful care
and vigilance over every department.
The high and the low, the rich and
the poor should receive the same cour
teous treatment. The laboring man
has tbe same right to be heard as tbo
railway magnate or the millionaire.
The state school fond should be
treated as sacred, and there should be
no juggling with school lands. A law
should be enacted, preventing specu
lation in, or the sale or assignment of
school land certificates. The Land
Agent should not be allowed to have
any favorites, or speulate through
knowledge obtained by virtue of
office ;. There should be no adjuncts
to or around this office and it should
always be above suspicion.
All kinds of property, including
franchises, should be required to pay
a just and reasonable tax, and express
and similar companies should pay a
tax ou their gross earnings in the
A law should provide for a State
Bank Examiner with conservative
The primary law was enacted by a
vote of a large majority of the people
and is entitled to, and should be giv
en, a fair trial aud should be repre
sented both as to its meaning and in
tent. From sentiment aud conviction, I
stand with President Roosevelt ou the
labor question, and am in thorough
accord with him on tbe question of
I am a firm believer iu, and an ar
dent supporter of, our public school
system, I favor liberal fupport to, and
a high standard of education ; and
with rare exceptions think our own
boys aud girls should be educated
w ithin the state of Oregon.
If successful, in my' administration
the needs aud wishes of the peopla
will be tho only "boss" aud the only
"machine," and there will be no
"favorites" aud nobody will have a
"pull' aud I will give the state an
houest, clean, conscientious aud vig
ilaut administration, "of the people,
by the people and for the people."
Charles A. Johns.
