A few weeks ago V. K. Harry haud
ed The Examiner an article roundly
scoring tho mall contractor who has
been protending to carry the mail
from Lakevlew to Plush, it was a
warm roast, indeed, and Mr. Harry's
grievance was at that timo under es
timated by the publisher of Tho Ex
aminer, who at all timos seeks to do
justice to all, aud we feared that Mr.
Harry was a little to rough on the
mail contractor, as the weather was bad
and the roads worse, bo wo did not
publish the article. Hut yesterday
our own ire was a little worked up
when we received a telephone message
from Adel informing ua that but one
Lake County Examiner had been re
ceived at the Adel olllce for a mouth,
and we went to the postofJlce here in
Luke v low where we learned that the
mail carrier Lad refused to take the
papors, aud that he had made but
about six trips during the month of
March. Now we expect Mr. Barry
will give us the horse laugh aud ac
cuse us of being selfish to our own iu-
toreBts, and the accusation might seem
well fouuded, but really, we had uo
idea that the conditions were half bo
t ad. We supposed tho mail was going
part of the time at least, aud thought
best to boar with the contractor for a
reasonable amount of failure, but wheu
it comes to absolute failure, most auy
oue is justifiable iu making a kick.
If we had kuowu this state of affairs
hud existed some effort would have
been made before this to get, The Ex
umiuer to our reuders, at leuut. We
pay the postuge and are entitled to
servico, uud from this day ou uutil
the papers go to our subscribers, or
until we flud out that we are simply
helnless iu tho mutter, we intend to

Blank 'A" Prescribed
To Register by the
'Attorney-tJeneral Crawford I a ren
dered a decision which settles a ques
tion that has given rise to much dis
cussion, regarding the right of elec
tors whose only disqualification is
noncompliance with the registration
law as it applies to primary elections.
Opinions have widely differed njvon
this subject, and there has 1km n much
discussion of it, for the reason that
there will lo many voters who will
fail to register and who will demand
tho right to vote on primary day.
The prevailing opinion has been that
an unregistered person could not reg
ister at the polls aud vote, for wet ion
15 of the direct primary law says that
"no person who is not a ,nalifled
elector and a registered member of his
party making its nominations under
the provisions of this law shall be
qualified to join lu signing any peti
tion for nomination or to vote at said
primary nominating election."
Attorney -General Crawford says if
this were all the law contained upon
this subject, the intention would lie
plain that unless registered the party

"Mr. Millis is dead!" those were
the words that went from lip to lip
Tuesday about noon, and wherever
uttered tho same sad expression help
ed to convey the startling news which
was received with deep feeling and
sadness. No one expected it. Every
body regarded Mr. Millis with rever
ence ; he was a friend to all ; he had
not an enemy in the community. He
had a kindly disposition nd even the
shadows of old age did not rob him of
his geuiul spirit; he smiled with those
who smiled aud cheered those who
Mr. Millis died Tuesday, April 3rd,
190U, at 10::W A. M. He had been sick
but a few duys, having contracted
pneumonia, which disease complicated
itself with heart trouble.
William Lindsay Millis was born in
Gilford couuty, North Carolina, July
20, 1828, being at the time of death 77
years, 8 mouths and 23 days old. He
was marriod to Miss Louisa Nole at
Pikes Peak, Colorado, in May, 1801.
Five children were born of the union,
Mrs. Gordon Garrett and a twiu sis
ter, Anna, who died ut tho age of C
yeuis, Mrs. F. M. Miller and Mrs. J.
S. Dewey, also twins, aud Mrs. Tlios.
Garrett, who died two years ago at
Tho family lived iu Sun Joaquin
County, California, for many years
where the mother died Jauuary 4th,
Eleven years ago Mr. Millis came to
live with his daughter, Mrs. Garrett,
with whom he has made his homo ever
Oue brother, 2 years younger, Kobt.
Millis, of Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas,
and oue sister, Mrs. Nancy Weatherly,
of Springfield, Ark., survive William.
Mr. Millis was raised in the Quaker
faith. He joined the Masonic and
Odd Fellows Lodges wheu a young
man. He led an active life up to
about 12 years ago wheu misfortune
overtook him and roblied him of a leg.
The funeral will bo hold today,
Thursday, at 2 o'clock, P. M. from the
Garrett residence to the M. E. Church,

Council Meeting.
The City council passed a "dog or
dinance" at the regular meeting Tues
day evening, making it unlawful to
keep dogs within the city limits with
out first having obtained a license.
City warrants were paid off to the
amount of 11885.00, I'hero still re
mains 1118.18 iu the treasury.
The matter of taxing peddlers was
brought up aud discussed. A brief
was submitted by District Attorney
Moore setting forth facts relating to
tuxinif tieddlers for the protection of
home merchants, which, iu effect,
showed that hucu tax would bo a
breach of the interstate commerce law.
The mutter was laid on the table uud
an effort will be mudo to In somo way,
devise a moans of protection to the
home merchants, which Is just uud

could not vote. He looks further,
however, and finds that in sections
and 8 of the primary law there are
provisons which make the Australian
ballot law applicable, and section 2X75
of the code is expressly made applicable
to primary nominating elections.
This last mentioned section provides
for any elector who is not registered
in the precinct in which he applies to
vote to use .blank "A," and vote if
otherwise qualified. Section .TH of the
direct, primary law says that "nothing
contained In this law shall bo constru
ed to deprive any elector of his right
to register and vote at any primary
nomuatiug election required by this
law on his complying with the special
provision of the law in the same man
ner that he is permitted by the gen
eral laws to register and vote at a gen
eral election."
Construing the law as a whole, the
attorney-general finds that tbo elector
may qualify by using blank "A" on
primary election day, and hence that
county clerks should send out such
blanks with the ballot boxes and poll

Lower Court Decision Affirmed.
The Supreme Court of the State of
Oregon ou March 27, reudered a decis
iou affirming the decision of the Cir
cuit Court for Lake Couuty iu the
matter of the State vs. U. F. Laue.
It will be remembered that B. F.
Lane was charged with aud oonvloted
of the crime of assault with intent to
kill, alleged to have been committed
iu the vicinity of Silver Lake ou Jan
uary 22, 1005, by shooting at and
wouudiug one Burt McKuue. The case
was appealed from the judgment of
the court, ou the ground of error by
the Court.
lue uuegeu error m me bill or ex
ceptions complained of relates to a
statement iuude by tho court iu cor-
red log a mlstatementof the evidence,
apparent, of witness Reedor re
garding some whiskey that bad
len stolen. The Court said:
"The witness said he 'was in it,' but
he meant clearly that he was not in
the stealing, but was with them after
ward and helped them drink it."
Defendant's counsel, J. M. Hatch
elder, excepted to such expression
contending that an error was made
and the jury Influenced thereby.-
After citing numerous cases the Su

mark was in effect a correct statement
of the evidence as produced by the
witness, and this being so, no error
was committed, as alleged, and further
holds that another alleged error was
assigned by defendants' counsel, but
deeming it unimportant, the judgment
is affirmed.
In Search Of Iron.
George Lynch started for Mendo
cino county, Calif., last week, to look
after some mining interests he has
there. Several years ago Mr. Lynch
discovered a very rich iron deposite
in the mountains near Willits. At
that time iron mines were not valu
able, especially when they were locat
ed any considerable distance from
railroads. Recently a rich strike was
made in iron in the vicinity of Mr.
Lynch's find, and a mill is to be erect
ed and a railroad built to the mines
by the company into whose hands the
mine has fallen, and George thinks
this a profitable time to open up
mine. He is staked by one or two of
the business men of Lakeview, and if
be strikes it rich Lakeview will be a
beneficiary of his good fortune, which
we hope is within easy reach.
Retires From Sheep Business.
Last week Mr. Wm. Harvey, the
Summer Lake sheepman, sold all his
sheep and will retire from the sheep
raising industry, from which he has
accumulated a competency. Mr. Har
vey came to Summer Lake valley 32
years ago, landing there with ' only a
few dollars. He secured employment
from some of the few settlers of that
valley, and through diligence he soon
had money to go into the sheep busi
ness for himself, and has been engag
ed in that industry ever since and has
been one of the large producers of
wool and mutton of Eastern
Oregon for many years. Mr. Harvey
owns one of the best ranchea in Ore

Oregon Horses To California.
W. M. Harvey, the horse buyer,

about 90 head of horses. This band
will be driven to Reno where part of

Runs a Two Mile Race
With His Life as
the Stakes.
Driver Frank Reid Say Holdup
Is a Pleasure Compared With
A Flood.
Last Friday evening Frank Reid,
the Paisley stage driver, had a some
what peculiar as well as exciting ex
perience. It was a race for life with
the mad, gushing waters from the
Moss reservoir at the head of Moss
creek between Clover Flat and the
Moss ranch. For two miles the stage
road runs along the narrow canyon
with steep bills on either side, follow
ing the banks of the creek the entire
distance and crossing the stream once.
The heavy rains during the day had
caused the reservoir to break, and
just as Mr. Reid was going down the
grade into the canyon he noticed that
the water was very muddy and the
banks of the creek full to overflowing.
The situation suddenly dawned upon
him and he realized at once that he
must get ahead .of the rush - of water
or remain there several hours, pos
sibly, way in the night, for the flood
to subside. His first impulse was to
make a bold dash to get ahead of the
flood and trust to fortune to keep
ahead, as once into the narrow canyon
there would be no alternative; he
must keep going or be drowned, as he
could see a little further up the can
yon a wall of heaving, foaming water,
carrying with it trees and boulders
which meant instant destruction to
anything in its path.' A thorough
realization of the perilous drive came
too late, as he was then in the can
yon and ahead of the wall of destruc
tion. He plied the whip freely to the
horses which were becoming frighten
ed by this time at the roaring, gush
ing waters and the tumbling trees and
boulders. Faster and faster the wall
leaped and covered the already short
distance between pursued and pur
suer, and faster and faster Frank
poured the bud to the horses backs.
He had no passengers aboard and the
load was light, which fact, Mr. Reid
owes to a degree, his miraculous es
cape from a terrible fate.
If only the crossing could be reach
ed and successfully passed Frank
thought his race would be won, as the
curves in the road at this point gave
the rushing waters a decided advan
tage in distance and already the banks
of the creek were full for some dis
tance ahead of him. He was moving
fast but thinking faster.
One more
curve and then the ford.
Only a few
more rods and the crisis
In his race
for life would be reached.
A moment
of suspense that few people ever ex
perience. The waters were now gain
ing upon him ; he was going toward
the ford at right angles wltn tne
course of the waters. The ford was
reached, the dash into the swollen
stream seemed a mad rush to destruc
tion. The horses faltered, then plung
ed into the water. Would he ever get
across ; the roar of the water and the
crash of trees and boulders was almost
deafening ; he scaroely dared look up
stream ; he could almost feel himself
in the cold grasp of the flood ; a mis
step of one of the horses would end it
all; it seemed ages; he held his breath
and strained every nerve in an uncon
scious effort to help the horses make
time. The horses seemed to realize
their predicament and their spirits
strung up to the highest pitch, lunged
through the stream and up the bank
aud out ou dry land. The climax was
reached and the crisis passed, all was
saved. While the race was not yet
ended, the chances were even now for
a neck-aud-ueck race for another half
mile to high ground and safety aud
the hold ou lifo grew firmer and firm
er. The roar of the waters died away
aud time for reflection brought a full
realization of the perilous ride Just
ended. Frank believes he could smile
at a hold up by the most dangerous
bandits that ever roamed the Wild
West ; look down tho muzzle of the
stage robbers' guu and read the adver
tisements on the bullet patch'u with
all candor and coolness. Hut no more
