claimed that he had bought a saddle

guilty, bo fined aud released, and it Is
hoped that tho lesson will be a lasting

SENATOR FULTON WI LL
To Take up th. Work of Irrigating Semi
Arid Lands of Lake County,
The following letter was received
from Senator Fulton by Daniel Hood-.
who is one of the committee appoiJ
ed by the Lake County Development
League at its last meeting, for the
purposo of communicating with var
ious parties regarding the Irrigation
of Iake county's semi-arid lauds:
" I have received your letter inclos
ing copy of tho report of Mr. S. (1.
liennelt, of tho Ileclamation Service,
relative to the irrigation . project in
your county. I will take pleasure in
presenting the matter to tho Drector
of tho Geological Survey and if nec
essary, to the Secretary of the Inter
ior also. Tho Director of the Geolog
ical Survey has charge of tho Irriga
tion Service, but of course is subject
to the Secretary of the Interior. You
are of course aware that tho Depart
Who Would Envy Him?
Fditorially the Oregon ian has tho
following to say of John D. Rockefel
ler: "After all, the Nation is greater than
any Individual, no matter how much
wealth he has, aud Xeralsis in the long
run, overtakes every criminal.
Whether there is a place of future
punishment or not is of little moment
to John D. Rockefeller. Whatever
retribution may await the unblest in
another world, it can hardly exceed
what bo suffers here. Cowering be
fore the law which be so long defied,
haunted by the specters of his inex
piable crimes, groveling under tho
just hatred of a whole Xation, he hid
es himself iu the gloom of his lone
some palace aud vainly aeoks defence
from inexorable remorse in the we
ons of his guards.
Iu tho watches of the night, as the
solitary fugitive reviews the tale of
lives ruined to satiate his lust for
gold, he bears tho steps of tho imagin
ary assassin creeping softly to his re
venge. Tho wind iu the tree tops is
to bis guilty mind the sighs of women
pleading iu vain for mercy. The ticks
of the pendulum number the curses of
his victims. Why does ho uot call his
friends to his side as the darkness of
impending gloom settles upon his
soul? He has uo friends. lie has
parasites aud sycophants, but iu all
the world there is uot oue poor slave
of toil so frleudless as Rockefeller.
Why doos he not pray? After mock
ing Heaven all these years with wor
ship whoso every word belied God's
justice, ho cannot pray.
Fools have envied him iu the pomp
of his baleful prosperity. Sickeued
humanity has said there could be uo
providence iu the world, since Rocke
feller could live aud flourish. Who
would envy him now? Who now cau
doubt tho even-handed sway that
rights all wrougs and metes out retri
butiou in tho fullness of time? Ca
lamities fall thick upon him. Sorrow
smites his soul. His mind darkens
with insanity. Pitiful old man I Iu
tho awful depths of that measureless
woe whore he uow begins to siuk,
even Rockefeller may claim our pity ;
foregiveness he cau never claim. He
will be remembered as a portent, a
scourge fo the human race. He is a
moral pestilence, a black death which
smites souls instead of bodies. A
thousand years from uow fathers will
relate his story to their sous as a
warning aud recount the horrors of
his decling years to demonstrate the
J ustice of God.

Some Attractiona of the Reserve.
One of the beauties about the For
J est Reserve is that no one can carry a
gun on it. Consequently no more "I
thought it was a dear" accidents can
occur on the Reserve, also uo hold
ups. In fact the reserve is a second
heaven on earth, all of which our peo
ple are finding out. If you lie to the
Forest Commissioner iu getting your
permits you will be debarred there
after from the reserve. If you carry
fire arms on the reserve you must
have the forest ranger plaster a seal
over the end of the gun, and when you
come off the reserve you must have
ranger take the seal off again. If you
are caught on the reserve with shoot
ing irons that hasn't got a plaster
ou the muzzle, the gun is liable to be
confiscated and the party carrying the
gun is liable to arrest, all of which
tends to promote honesty. Again
hunting on the reserve is prohirited,
we are informed. That clause pro
motes morality, as our nimrods who
have been iu tho habit of shouldering
their shotguns on Sunday mornings
and bringing in a mess of quail or
grouse will have to And other occupa
tion to engage their attention. Fish
ing is also a lost art on the reserve
which promotes truhtfuluess, and
hereafter flsh stories will be things of
the days in the sweet long ago. No
charges or stringent laws have as yet,
however, been euacted regarding the
atmosphere or scenery ou the reserve.
That omission should be brought to
the notice of the powers that be. The
people, however, have queer ideas,
they wanted the reserve, now they
have it they fail to appreciate the
beauties, conveuiences and tendencies
to a higher pluue of civilization.
Range Conditions in Klamath.
Tho Merrill Record says of the con
ditions ou the range in Klamath coun
ty: 'An expedition into tho lava beds,
manned by Capt. G. Merrill, Lieut.
C. I. McCall, Chos Wright, O. T. Mo
Keudree and Tom Calomes, for the
purpose of ascertaining the true con
dition of the sheep which were
caught there iu the storm, returned
yesterday and report the sheep in a
deplorable couditlou. Mauy of Mr.
Haider's sheep are dying and some
of Mr. Brown's. The lost mentioned
was fortunate iu procuring hay for the
Since the above was published iu
the Record favorable changes have
come about iu the conditions on the
ranges in Lake county and it is hoped
aud presumed that the couditiou over
iu Klamath is not so deplorable as
was predicted at first. It was feared
that stockmen ou the desert iu Lake
county would sustain heavy losses as
a result of tho storm, but later re
ports, as giveu in The Examiner last
week, show a very moderate loss.
Still later reports from the desert give
a more enoouragiug outlook. F. M.
Miller caino iu from Warner lost Fri
day aud he had been over the range
and he said that the feed was fine and
the loss would be very light, compar
ed with flrot reports. There will be
only the usual loss iu cattle, none lu
horses aud but little more than ordin
ary loss in sheep. He believes while it
was a close shave for stockmen, that the
storm has been a benefit to the entire
country. The now was not so deep
as was first reported and it was so
light that a few days sunshine reduced
the depth to such an extent as not to
interfere with range stock.

Chapel Topics On Friday, Pres.
Mulkey gave a talk on "Development
of the West," being an account of
some of his observations on his re
cent itinerary through California.
On Monday, Miss Doughty read a
paper on "The civil war in song and
story" which was very interesting,
while on Tuesday, Pres. Mulkey gave
a review of "The . Hoosier School

characters very distinctly and, at the
same time created some merriment by
his allusions. On Wednesday, Hon.
A. C. Jennings, of Eugene, made a
brief address, which was followed by
a talk by Pres. Mulkey about ostriches

Base Ball Dance.
The all night dance given by the
Lakeview Base Ball Club last Friday
night was a complete success iu every
respect. The affair ranked among the
best of like events of the season from
a social standpoint and netted the base
ball boys something over 130, which
will be employed in fitting up a team
for the season's games. The boys
ought to begla at once to arrange for
a series of games during Fourth of
July week, and then commence a ser
ies of practise games that will enable
them to hold all visiting teams iu the
field. Lakeview had some fine games
lost year and there is no reason why
we should not put up a tournament
this year that will attrct eveu a larg
er crowd than visited Lakeview last
year. Ball games are interesting and
they help to hold the crowd and enter
tain them while here. As there is to
be a race meeting iu Lakeview this
year a few ball games mixed iu will
help to maintain the wide reputatiou
that Lakeview has of being a royal en
tertainer. Merrill Notes.

MEETS DEATH AT
Harvey D. Boydstun Was
Found Dead in Hay
PRINTS OF HOOF IN STOMACH.
Went to Harness Horses Before
Breakfast and is Next
Harvey D. Boydstun was kicked by
a horse at Paisley last week and died
from the injury in a few minutes.
The report as it came to us is about
as follows :
Mr. Boydstun and another man,
whose name we did not learn, were
feeding sheep for II. L. Chandler, at
the Geo. Conn place, and were camp
ed near the hay stacks just on top of
the hill north of the Paisley bridge.
Mr. Boydstun's wife was stopping at
the camp cooking for the men. On
Thursday morning, about 7 oclock,
Harvey went to the hay corral, where
the work horses were running loose
around the stacks, and told the man,
who was helping him, to go to camp
and get ready for breakfast while he
harnessed the horses. When break
fast was ready they waited for Mr.
Boydstun a while, and when he did
not come the man went to the corral
to ascertain what was keeping him so
long. The horses were still loose la
the corral, but the collars were ou
them. On looking about he discover
ed Boydstun lying by the fence, face
down, apparently dead. The man
started for town on the run, for help.
Mrs. Boydstun saw from the fellow's
actions that something serious had
happened and ran to the corral, where
the terrible sight met her eyes. She
raised her husband's bead in her lap
and he gasped once and died. Dr.
Witham and others were soon on the
scene and it was thought at first that
he had been kicked on the head by
one of the horses, but upon a closer
examination, after the dead man had
been removed to town, a bruise was
found in the pit of the stomach as if
caused by a horse's hoof, aud the
scratch ou the face was only alight.
Relatives of the dead man, in Lake
vew, were notified, aud at noon
Thursday, W. Y. Miller, B. W. Farrow
and J. E. Harper started for this
place, with the corpse. Changing
teams aud driving all night, they ar
rived here at 4 :30 oclock Friday morn
ing. H. L. Chandler and Mrs. Boyd
stun came in another rig, arriving
about the same time.
The funeral was held at the M. E.
Church, conducted by Rev. S. Sny
der, Saturday at 2 p. m., aud the re
mains were buried iu the I. O. O. F.
cemetery immediately after.
Harvey Dickson Boydstun was born
iu Butte county, Calif., August 25,
1881. He was married to Miss Ines
Wheeler in September, 1903. One
child was boru to bless this union,
but God, in His infinite wisdom, seeu
