of conspiracy to defraud the Govern
ment out of its public lauds, as charged

ommendation for mercy. In the ab

a stay of sentence in the cases of all
the defendants until the necessary

Annual Institute One of
TAIKS ON HIGHER EDUCATION
Speakers Dwell ou the Future
Possibilities of Lake County'
State Superintendent J. II. Acker
man, President E. D. Ressler of the
Monmouth Normal and President P.
L. Campbell of the State University
at Eugene, arrived in Lakeview Mon
day evening, as has been formerly an
nounced that they would, by The Ex
aminer. Mr. Ressler and Mr. Campbell ad
dressed the audience a.t the hall that
evening, and made a good impression.
Both gentlemen are recognized as
among the ftate's ablest instructors
and on educational work their opinion
is above par.
So impressed were the gentlemen
with Eastern Oregons' future, after
having traveled across what has been
known as the "Oregon Desert", com
prising so great a portion of the east
ern half of the state that in former
years it has been considered a vast
waste which rendered this portion of
the state unimportant, they dwelt for
cibly upon the opportunities, now op
en for the development of Eastern
Oregon. Mr Campbell has made ag
riculture a part of his study, and "dry
land farming" in Eastern Oregon ap
peals to hiip ic a rfi oet prosperous pur- -suit.
He believes that instead 6f
Eastern Oregon being nothing but a
cattle country, as it has always been
termed, that it will become the great
wheat growing portion of the state.
Experiments have proven that such is
not ouly possible, but probable. He
did not hesitate to say that the "Ore
gon Desert" ' would excel the lower
aud damper Willamette valiev in farm
products, especially wheat. While his
talk was uot lacking in the least from
an educational standpoint, what he
said of the possibilities of our section
of the state was welcomed by his hear
ers, coming as it does at a time when
the strife for recognition of Eastern
Oregon by the world as a likely pro
ducer, is at its height.
Mr. Ackerman's talk Tuesday evening
was well received and the assistance
rendered by these throe gentlemen to
the annual teachers' institute was of
such importance that its effect will be
lasting. Their demonstration of the
urgent needs, varied and numerous,
of education a better and higher ed
ucation could not fail to make a
lasting impression. Even the adop
tion of our new Primary nominating
law was made to furnish a demand
for the education of the coming vot
er, and the proof offered was conclu
sive. The nomination and election of
every officer, county, state, and even
United States Senators given into the
bauds of the voter, maks it imperative
that the highest education possible is
necssary to insure the best results
from the new law.
In addition to the speaking, the
first evening Mrs. Dyer favored tne
audience with two beautiful vocal so
los, with piauo accompaniment by
Miss Emily Ayres. '
The visitors left Weduesday evening.
iu order to reach Klamath Falls t
hold tho institute thero.
Mr. Ackermau spoke to the audi-
anee Tuesday evening ou the subjoct
of public schools, their place in the
rank of tho worlds progress, demon
strating that the public school should
follow aud uot lead. He made plain
every point to show that it was the
demand for branches of study that
caused their adoption, and that it haa
ever beeu so.
Mr. Ackermau emphasized the need
of high schools, aud prophesied that
ere long every county in the state
would have its high school. Mr. Acker
mans spoach was good and to the
poiut throughout, aud wo are sorry
that we have not the space to give it
in full, as his argument in favor of
high schools was exactly in line with
the Examiner's pleas to thtf' voters of
Coutiuued ou Last Pago.
