The Lakeview Mining; Co.
As was stated iu Tho Kxaminer a few
weeks ago, the Lnkcvicw Mining aud
Milling Company has been organized
w it h a capital stock of one million
dollai J ilivlibxl into two million shares
of fully paid up nonassessable hhures
at cents each.
This company held its II ret meeting
Tuesday afternoon for tho purpose of
electing its directors and ottlcers, in
tho office of Fred Hriggs, iu this city.
Tho directors are, Fred II. Hriggs,
V. Conn, M. Marks, F. M. Miller, Ueo.
Fiuance Committee: F. M. Miller,
(!eo. Ayers, Frod II. Hriggs.
Ofllcers: President, (Jeo. II. Ayers,
Vice-president and Manager, M. Marks
Assistant Manager Hobt. Smith. Treas
urer'. M. Miller, Secretary Fred II.
The directors aud otllcres of this
company are all solid busiuess mu of
this county so that outside parties in
tending to invest ueod have no fear of
the management. Tho manager, Mr.
Marks, is a thorough mining man of
wido t-xperienco, having had experi
ence iu mining In Australlia, Alaska
aud the United States. He has made
a success of every mining venture he
ever undortook. Tho mines are locat
ed in the Windy Hollow district where
recent rich discovorles have been made
that has startled the mining world.
The first discovery of gold iu that dis
trict was made loss thau two mouths
ago, and the prospects are good.
Some of tho most extensive mining
men of Nevada have visited those mines
aud pronounced them a wonder.
While the par value of the shares is
50 ceuts per share, '25,000 shares have
beeu placed on tho market at '20 ceuts
per share. Local capital is takiug hold
ot the proposit ion, and it is believed
that this issue will soon be takeu up.
Tho money realized from the sale of
the sAaros now ou the market will be
usod iu development work.

Mr. T. L. Waggoner, head engineer
of tho Oreuon ic Knstern railroad, re

The Kxaminer Inst week that he would.
Whilo he wbi very careful in what ho
said regarding the company' business,
he gave out the statement to The Kx

while iu conversation with an Exami

had nut the -slightest doubt any longer
that the tilling of tii') soil and accumu

a country materially tended to length

on personal observation, and when a

Connected by Telephone.
Lakeview is now In direct commun
ication with Hly, Bonanza and Kla
math Falls. The lino from here to Hly
was completed last Saturday. Just
before going to press the Examiner re
porter called up Mr. Gates of Klamath
Falls and asked blin the latest news,
which he stated to bo tho work of tho
government on the big canal, which
they are uow concreting, working
about 500 men day aud night. The are
about 40 phones on the local telephone
lino in tho vicinity of Hly, and in a
few days the number will be cut down
to 17, which will greatly increase the
efficiency of tho service, which is ex
ceptionally good now.

which is In the neighborhood of Christ

Lake county. This crew is pulling for
tho Deschutes river. The junction is
to be at Wagontiro. One crew is in

not say what roa is hi-i rdad wool 1 con

is almost certian that Harriman knows

New Features in Dress.
"The girdle is an highly important
feature of fashion and while its ob
vious purpose is to furnish the smart
Empire touch, clever dressmakers com
pel it to serve the more important one
of rounding angular lines aud toning
down exuberant ones. It must fit to
paifectiou and yet appear to be woru
with au easy grace. Its lines, neither
sovore nor yet careless, must harmon
ize with those of the costume, and at
the same time prove becoming to the
wearer. It may be of the gown mate
rial, of handsome ribbon, of silk, thin
velvet, or suede. For braid-trimmed
gowns, it is covered with over-lapping
rows of braid skilfully manipulated
over the curves of the figure. The
Empire girdlo ends well above the
waist line. This is modified for full
figures, being brought down to the
waist line at the sides, and thence iu
a point to the front like an 1830 bod
ice. But whatever the shape or mate
rial of the girdle, it must fit with tho
proverbial perfection of a glove. To
secure this result, shapely corsets are
essential, aud a girdlo lining correctly
cut, closely bono J, and fitted with the
utmost earo, both iu a standing and
a sitting position. The girdlo cut
straight across the top is Binart, but
extremely trying. A gradual curve
from under the arms downward is more
generally becoming." Helen Berkeley

II. A. Hunter of the Hunter Land'
Co. of Minneapolis, who was In this
city last week stated that the people
of Eastern Oregon should forget the
word desert as applied to the rolilng
prairie lands of this county as Western
Oregon has taught themselves to forget
the word webtoot. He says he has tra
veled over all the Western states and
no place he has been is the soil and
climate equal to that in Lske county.
The blue sky, alone, he said, would
have induced his company to buy the
tract of road land recently purchased
regardless of other meritorious fea
tures of the deal, and when the char
acter of the soil, tne vast undeveloped
resources of this country and the fu
ture possibilities of agricultural pur
suits was taken into consideration '
they were doubly enthuisastic. He
says if our eight months' of sunshine
was known to exist by people of the
world, a general stampede would be
made for Lake county. His company
is very proud of their acquisition and
intend to do some extensive advertis
ing of the great possibilities for this
country and give to the world the in
formation that should have been given
out long ago. Of the thousand s of peo

owing wholly to the impression the
few who know of it bavebout the so
called "Oregrn desert." The word
'desert" is a disparagement of Eastern
Oregons' millions of acres of rich, roll
ing prairie lands, of which Lake coun
ty comprises a liberal portion, and all
that is iequired to-prove this assertion
is to give a skilled farmer the oppor
tunity aud a market for his product.
Common, Everyday Talk.
It is getting to be a poor day for
news when the building of one or more
new railroad line in Oresgon is not an
nounced. Probably the most signifi
cant announcement during the Y&st
week was that of the closing of the
Ogden gateway. ' While it is of no im
portance to the Western portion of the
State, in Wastern Oregon and Idaho
ita effect will be greatly felt by ship
pers, for the Rio Grande is the popu
lar route. in that section. The closing
of the gateway is ascribed to the build
ing of the Western Pacific, which will
have close working arrangements with
Rio Grande. It means that freight
which reaches Ogden from the East
via the Rio Grande will have to pay
local rates from there to all points on
any of the Harriman lines beyond Og
den. The same rule will apply to ship
ment from west of Ogden, except when
shipped through over the Union Paciflo-
As to rumors of new roads, a dis
patch from Silver Lake last week statea
that a surveying crew, supposed to be
of the Harriman system is in Christ
mas Lake Valley, and has run one line
via Fort Rock through on the south
side of Christmas Lake, crossing over
Long's ranch and on to Wagon Tire
Mountain. It is stated this crew will
run another line back on the north side
aud through Sucker Flat. It is claimed
this survey either side of the'lake will
shorten the distance 35 miles or more
over tho survey on the high desert,
which would miss Silver Lake about
15 or 20 miles to the north. There Is
also prospect that a railroad from there
running south may be constiuctia
by the Gould system. Over on Coos
Bay a party of Southern Pacific sur
veyors have made their headquarters.
They are making survey for the com
pany and another party ot engineera
for the same Hue are working at River
ton. The surveying crews are not
giving out any information as to the
plans for the company the represent,
but they are completing work ou the
line that has already been surveyed
