A Worthy Cause Lost..
A very little cause may sometimes
be the means of creating a great
This was proven in the last election,
when Woman's Suirrage was defeated
by such an overwhelming majority,
that every one even those most rigor
ously opposed were surprised. During
tho recent campaign a woman prom
inent in the sulfrage cause lode on a
staKo in south eastern Oregon. Dur
ing tho early part of tho ride she
entertained the driver by telling him
tho mission of her errand and being
of prepossessing appearance and 11
lluent speaker she readily gained the
conlldeuco of tho driver and his assur
ance that ho would not only vote for
the cause but do all he could to w in
others. Having reached a way sta
tion, w here the stage changes horses,
while that preparation was going on,
the lady sulfraglst began to realize
that tho severity of dust and wind
was ruinous to tho complexion, aud
not tactfully considering how easily a
good cauno can be lost took advant
age of this stop aud covered her face
with a complexion mask. When the
driver had again mounted his seat,
tho horses being fresh, stared briskly
and it required his undivided' atteu
tiou to manage them during which
time ho hadn't noticed his fellow pas
senger when tho llry steeds had slack
ened pace, he looked around and lo I
that mask met his view. He nearly
collapsed and in 'dating this to a pas
senger said "I just shook all over
evory time she turned toward mo and
I made up my mind then aud there, I
wouldn't vote for Woman's Suffrage
or any one who would wear such a
damned thing as that aud neither did
I, and 1 did all 1 possibly could to
defeat it, I was afraid if tho vote was
carried that every woman in Oregon
would wear such a mask when travel
ing and 1 simply could not have
stood it and would have had to give
up my job. "

The Peek-a-boo Waist
Tho immodesty, not to say immor
ality, of tho celebrated peek a-boo
waist has been brought forward so
promiuently by the proposed action
of tho W. C. T. U. against it that the
public welfare seems to require a ser
ious and impartial discussion of the
matter. lu the first place, what is the
soul-destroying confection of attire?
It is a diaphanous confection of a few
narrow strips of white cloth and a few
frightfully open-wrought bits of lace.
Its sins of omission and commission
are potent to every observer.
How much of her divinely chiselod
nUPe a wonmn niuy display to the
public without immodesty has never
i,een authoritatively decided. It
8l,01ll!j t0 depoud upon tho timo and
j In a imiivooul faiou has do-
, t,rtoJ tut tho mBy oouskt of a
I loal fiction, us it wore; merely a hint
to suggest its locality and outlines
the bench convention is still less ex-
HCting. Of course nowhere may a
I lady appear absolutely devoid of all
protection to her modesty froij the
prying eye of tho vulgar crowd, but
at tho beach sho muy approximate
without reproach very closely to the
iuuoeeuco of Eden.
Tho peek-u-boo waist Is loss fiank
in its exhibition of tho figure than
either the bathing sunt or the full
dren of tho ballroom. Why, then,
should It l0 put under tho ban ex
clusively, while the other two are per
mitted to reap their harvest of mined
noil la unhindered? We understand
tlmt the action of the W. C. T. U.
will Ins taken not so much to preserve
tho modesty of the woman as to save
the men of tho city from bankruptcy.
It has In-on found that the sictacle
of a woman upon the pavement clad
in one of these elnsive garments pat
a stop to all business in that vicinity.
The course of trade is intotrnpted.
ISargain aud sale chho and all men's
eyes are fixed upon the sweet vision
until it fades from sight. Since mul
titudes of women now wear the en
chanting waist, it can be imagined
how destructive to the commerce of
the city it has Income. It is said that
tho bank clearings have fallen off
some 50 per cent since the hot weather
male the peek a-boo frequent and
conspicuous on the street. Some
thing bad to be done to stay its de
vastating course, and the W. C. T. U.
ban gallantly plunged into the breach.
Tho ukase against the peek-a-boo
waist i:i designed, therefore, not so
much for the benefit of the souls of
the wearers as for the pocketbooks of
their male admirers. It will not do
to have a whole city pausing some
thousand times a dy to watch women
make ncart disturoing transits across
the Held of vision. The society of
brave and self-denying matrons will
do well to put a top to this by their
mandate. liut how shall the law-de
fyiug creature who iicrsists henceforth
in wearing the anathematized peek-a-
Into be punished? Shall she le impris
oned or let off with a mere fine? We
rather incline to the side of mercy,
I nit in this an in all oilier matters we
shall submit our own judgment to the
superior wisdom of the W. C. T. U.
If they say imprisonment, then im
prisonment it shall be. Oregouian.
How to Reach Lakeview.
Several letters have been received
by us lately asking tho best way to
reach Lakeview-; and the best time to
come. These letters are too numerous
to answer, so we w ill endeavor to an
swer through the columns of The Ex
aminer. For people living in the East there
are three routes, any one of w hich
would laud the party in Lake county.
Over the Southern Pacific railroad
to Rono, thence over the N-C-O. rail
road to Madeline, which would land
them within 'M miles of Lakeview,
and an eaiy stage ride on four-horse,
I eay coaches to Lakeview in one day
aud night. Coming over tho North
ern Pacific to Portland, thence to
Thrall and. over the Klamath Lake
railroad to Pokegama, which would
land them 135 miles from Lakeview.
The rido to Lakeview from Pokegama
would be by stage in two days aud
one night with iue night layover.
Coming from Ogdeu over the O.
R. .t N. to The DhIIcs, then to Shan
iko over the Columbia Southern, a
stage ride of 2(50 miles brings one to
As to the season of year, we would
most assuredly advise one to come in
August or September, as the weather
is fine, not too warm or too cold, and
the country is then showing the vis
itor what it can produce. Ow ing to
the recent rich gold discoveries, we
would suggest that parties come as
soou as possible, in order to be ahead
of the great rush that will bo made for
Lake county in next month.
Th Latest From the Mines.
The latest news from the mines does
uot indicate any immediate abatement
of the excitement.' Prospectors are
scouriug the hills aud valleys for miles
around the original strike aud reports
come that several finds have been
made, one of considerable importance
about three miles south of the Loff tus
discovery of a week ago, which shows
up well, prospectors aro now on tho
hills south of tho 7T ranch and think
they have found croppings of the same
ledge discovered ou the opposite side
of the valley.
A telephone message from Adel
states that three wagon loads of peo
ple from Hidwell have passed that
place and two more wagon loads are
due there tonight.
A telephone message from Crane
Lake, about 12 miles from hero, states
that tho excitement has revived pros
pecting in the sagehen district aud
several new claims have been staked
Hold seekers have lieeu ou the hills
about Lakeview and some good rock
has beeu found which, when assayed
went $2.25 in gold. The exact location
of this find has not been made public
but it is in sight of Lakeview aud
uot more than a mile from town.
Women and Children are
in the Hay Fields.
CHILDREN DO WORK OF MEN.
Brave Little Girl Does the Cow
Boy Act With Long Derrick
Rope on Horseback.
It is a common sight along the val
leys south of here to see little girls
and boys driving pull-up teams for
putting hay in the barns. It is impos
sible to secure men for this work and
rancuera have rigged carta for their
children to ride on and given them a
gentle team to drive and they do the
work that men have done before dar
ing the baying season, and are happy.
One ranch we passed a brave little girl
was handling the derrick on horse
back as a vaquero strings out a calf
to be branded. She sat there on the
old cow horse with the long iope in
her hand and when the load of hay
was damped she would tarn the horse
around, "throw on her turns" slide
over in one stirrup just like a bucca
roo dragging a calf to the branding
fire. This scene was on the old Brown
ranch 9 miles south of town, owned
by the McCulley boys.

This may be true in email things and

from The Dalles to Boise City. The
company constructing this blazed
trail received from the Government
the most valuable timber and grazing
lands in that section of the State of
Oregon. And they cave absolutely
nothing in return. Not even a road.
There is no Dalles military road. It
was never built and never will be, but
the company has the deed to the
The road is one of the humorous
things of these Government contracts.
It runs from the summits of the
John Day Pass directly across the
mountains along a route that a pack
horse cannot travel. There is no
semblance of a road. The trees "are
not even cut, being merely blazed.
The road used by the company "build
ing" this military road is a county
road and is today the only road
through that section of the country.
The Dalles military road is marked by
blazed trees, and that is all.
But the company got every odd sec

either side of this road, aud where
there was laud already settled upon
