To Maintain Dally Mall.
Klamath comity people will endeav

the I'okegama road has declared Sun

road will bo completed to a point
where a good stage and freight road is
built to Laird's Landing, and mail
and freight will le carried from there
to Klamath Fulls by boat seven times

highways for the entrance, from all
directions, of causes for the desired
progress, regardless of interests local
to other communities. Tho fact that
we had a daily mail from the West has
heretofore proved an obstacle to a daily
service from the north. If proior in

themselves in establishing a daily
mail over the Weed line, but they are
bringing thomselvea in closer touch

Drowned in Lost RJver.
James Edward McClure of Poe val
ley was drowned while attempting to
ford Lost rivei near the Ilorton ranch
Sunday, June 21. He had been to see
the llorton'a and left that ranch
about 11 o'clock, telephoning to his
fathor, W. II. McCluro, that be would
be home for dinner. Nothing was
thought of his failure to reach home
on time, for very often he would fail
to keep such appointments, being de
tained by a cuttle deal, or other busi
ness connected therewith, for he was
a cattle buyer.
When ho failed to show up after a
few days absence and nothing was
hoard from him, search was institut
ed, and tho remains were found last
Saturday, June 30, about 200 yards
below the ford, floating on the surface
of Lost river. It was fully dressed,
and about $90.00 lu gold was found in
the pockets. The horse was found a
short distance away, saddled and
bridled. Klamath Falls Republican.

OREGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington July 3. Few Senators
accomplished more in the way of local
legislation for their states or constit
uents during the session of Congress
just closed than did Senator Fulton,
of Oregon. The results which he at
tained are the more to his credit be
cause of the handicaps nnder which be
labored. But his achievements of the
session are not confined to local legis
lation ; he took a conspicuous part in
the fight in behalf of the railroad rate
bill, and by reason of that participa
tion brought himself Ut the front and
won recognition at the hands of the
Senate leaders, as was recently testifi
ed to by Senator Aldrich, in an inter
view printed in The Oregon ian.
For the first three weeks of the re
cent session Senator Fulton was the
only member of the Oregon delegation
in Washington.' Senator Gearin was
sworn in just before the holiday re
cess, but Hermann bad been of no as
sistance to the two Senators in their
fight for legislation, and as far as re
sults are concerned, - Mr. Hermann
might as well have followed the ex
ample of bis unfortunate colleague
and remained away from Washington .
Senator Gearin was not in a posi
tion to throw much support to Oregon
legislation tlis Winter,;, Uj: be., was a
new Senator and a member of the
minority party. He ' fully realized
that under the circumstances he could
not hope to spring into prominence,
and made no attempt whatever to
force himself to the front To have
done so would have been to invite hu
miliation at the bands of the older
Senators. His modest, unassuming
course was most commendable under
The burden of securing local legisla
tion, therefore, devolved almost en
tirely upon tbe shoulders of Senator
Fulton, both in the House and in the
Senate. It was he who had to arrange
for the report and passage of bills
through the Senate, and then follow
them to the House and see that they
were not sidetracked or buried. He
realized that he could personally not
appear before House committees, but
he had many conferences with the
Speaker, and time and again called
on Representative Jones, of Washing
ton, to look after Oregon legislation.
The Washington man was a loyal
friend of his neighbor state, a friend
in need, and in point of fact, did
more for Oregon this Winter than any
other member of the House. In this
way, by relying on his friends, and
by furnishing the House committees
with facts in support of his bills, Sen
ator Fulton managed to accomplish a
great deal Oregon ian.
