U. S. SENATOR C. W.
FULTON IN LAKEVIEW.
The First United States Senator to Ever
Visit Our City While in Office.
United States Senator Charles W.
Fulton arrived hi Lakeview Tuesday
evening, accompanied by Judge H. L.
Ileiison, of Klamath Falls. The even
lug was spent hi receiving Introduct
ions, as tho Senator had never before
visited this city. He met many and
gave all a cordial handshake. After
supper the two visitors were invited
to Mrs. Cobb's homo where they wero
entertained by Miss Kssie Cobb, who
deligtcd them with her 1 harm ing
voice, In a number of vocal select
Ions. Next day the Senator "took In the
town," and was kept quite busy mak
ing new aoiiiaintniico, aud familial lz
ing himself with conditions here.
Senator Fulton is not a stranger to
this county, notwithstanding this is
his first trip here. He has made it a
point to keep posted upon all subjects
ull'ecthig his state at large. No ques-
jtiou of import has escaped his atten
tion. He has worked hard In Con
gress for tho interests of this, as well
as his own part of tho state, in con
versation w ith The Kxaminer he said
that ho intends to granp every oppor
tuuity to reduce tho number of acres
hi Oregon forest reserves, lower the
rate for pasturage and increase the
per ceut. of tho receipts from past
urage, sale of timber, etc., to be
turned iuto the cnuuty treasuries iu
which the reserves are located. He
savs ho tielieves iu f 01 est reserves for
the protection of water courses, wher
ever such protection cau be made ef
fective, but wants the area w ithdrawu
fur such purposo restricted to tbe
minimum. He also favors the protec
tion of actual, ruluablo forests.
Airungemeuts were made for the
Senator to address the people at the
j Opera House yesterday evening, dur
1 ing which he touched upon many
! questions of great importance to Lake
county. He thinks this county has a
rreat future, and all we need is a rail
road to bring us people aud haul away
Judge Only introduced tho speaker
in a few well -chosen remarks.
The Senator said that in all his tra
vels he had never visited a place w here
the people were more cordial aud were
more ready to devote their attention
to tho entertainment of visitors, lie
1 said he did not believe he had created
an exception, but ho believed that it
was tho custom of the people here.
The personal frieudship that has been
established lie t ween the Seuator aud
the people of Luke county ou account
of his visit here is eveu stronger than
that which existed as a result of his
fidelity and loyalty to his constituents
geneially, iu the halls of congress,
where he has labored so untiringly
aud zealously for the best interests of
his state at largo. Tho ties that have
liuked together the minds of Seuator
Fulton and bis constituents, formed
by his tireless energy in their behalf
Lakeview is justly proud of the
bright young girl whom we claim as
our owu, Miss Esther Cobb, who de
parted Wednesday morning iu com
pauy with her auut, Miss Ellen Cobti,
on a pleasure aud business tour of the
East., including liostou, the home of
Miss Elleu Cobb.
All who have had tho pleasure of
hearing Miss Esther sing, aud es
pecially those qualified to judge, are
charmed with her beautiful voice,
and feel sure of her success. And
that, to Esther, means a great deal
Her aim is high, and "success" to her
moans nothiug short of the top-most
rung of tbe ladder.
While iu Lakeview many have had
the pleasure of beurlug her wonder
ful voice, wonderful for her years
Her singing at the M. E. Church
Sunday evening, was must sublime.
Every oue wishes Esther well, she is
groatly loved iu her home town, aud
is, aud always will be, iu manlier, just
the same "dear Essie" as of old. We
agree with Seuator Fultou, who, af
ter hearing Miss Esther sing several
beautiful selections, among theui
"The ltosary" which she sings per
fectly, said, hi the presence of an
Examinar reporter "1 predict for you,
Miss Esther, a grand career." May
the Senators words prove a prophesy.

is strong, indeed, but those heart
strings that have been united by his
personal visit, his warm handshake
and that look of earnest friendship
aud sincerity of purpose that inspires
confidence are doubly strong. Sena
tor Fulton left Lakeview knowing iu
his heart that tho people with whom
he met and mingled like him as a
man and a friend as well as a represen
tative in congress.
The Senator told in brief his views
on tho Forest question of which the
people are more or le-s acquainted
from reading and knowing the work
he hus accomplished in congress. He
pointed with pride to the work laid j
out by the government in the reclam
ation of arid lauds; but while he be
lieved this to be one of the grandest
undertakings of tbe times, be was
frank to say the work in detail is not
being done in the best interests of tbe
public. He sal i he did not say this
to criticize an honest purpose, but be
believed it tbe duty of every man to
speak his views on questions of public
import. Such has been the character
istic that has made Senator Fulton tbe
power that, he is in tbe National legis
lative body, as well as in the State of
The Senator eulogized the people of
Lake county, and bis sincerity is not
After tbe speaking a banquet was
served iu tbe Hotel Lakeview dinning
room at which tbe Seuator was tbe
guest of honor. Many citizens of
Tbe details of tbe banquet cannot
lie gone into at this time. It was sim
ply a demonstration of tbe high regard
the people have for their Senator, and
we take the liberty to state for Sena
tor Fulton that Le appreciated it.
About 50 guests were present and
many eulogistic toasts were giveu.
Mayor V. L. Suelling was toast-master.
The references made to Oregon's late
Seuator, J. 11. Mitchell, weie touch
ing, aud upon this subject Senator
Fulton showed his undying love for a
frieud; that love that vanishes not in
time of need aud distress, that love
that forsaketh not, even iu times
when clouds of shame and disgrace
hang over and around one who bas, or
is alleged to have fallen. That spark
of friendship that lingered iu Seuator
Fulton's heart for bis old frieud, in the
face of all that was charged, is the
grandest, noblest and most endearing
atom of any humau being. As Senator
Fulton said: "Without friendship,
what is the world?"
Reference was also made to tbe noble
work Seuator Fulton had doue in con
gress for Oregon when he was there
alone for this great state, doing pat
iently the work of four men.
We arc glad to have met hix.
The Seuator and Judge departed
this morning ou their return home.

Later in 1800 Mrs. Frakes married
Norman Flower, having no children

Jessie, aino died the same year, which
left her childless la ber old age.
She was welcomed and remained
with her daughter in-law, Mrs. N. M.

was constantly with ber and cared for

invalid for several years, and about
four years ago she fell, breakng ber

Trip Down The Valley.
Ve scribe and wife, accompanied by
Mrs Win. Harvey and Mr. W. J.
Proudfoot, took a trip down Goose
Lake valley last Sunday, stopping at
tbe Lake Hotel at Pine Creek, where
a fine chicken dinner was sumptuously
spread . After resting ia tbe shade a
cou"le of hours tbe party took a spin
down into California, admiring the
luxurant crops in the vicinity of
Pine Creek and between that nlace
aud the lake shore. Tbe drive
through the shady lanes was enjoyed
and to look at tbe various Sue crops
too numerous to mention was inspir
ing, indeed. Some of the most beau
tiful homes in tbe state are fouud be
tween Pine Creek and the Lake. We
stopped at the lovely borne of Mr. and
Mrs. II. C. Fleming to euquire tbe
road to the lake shore, aud found
those two elderly people (but Mr.
Fleming says be is getting youugar)
eujoying the fortieth anniversary of
their marriage. Mr. Fleming said he
wanted to kill the fatted calf, but bis
wife said it wasn't tbe coifs' fault, so
they were just enjoying the day by
sitting in the shade (Mr. Fleming with
his shoes off,) looking at their beau
tiful borne, the greatest pleasure that
could be indulged in. Gould one im
agine a more pleasant scene than this,
these two old people, Mr. Fleming in
an easy chair and bis wife on. his
knee, neither saying much, but deep
in thought of forty years ago, be

sake? What more can this old world

could be seen at the hotel and on tbe
street, and it was no surprise to see
Senator Mulkey in tbe center of the'
group, and bis keen eye never failed!
to see tbe approach of a newcomer.
Mr. Beach was also alert to see tbat -all
met tbe Ex-Senator. Social chat,
stories, reminesences, were indulged
in, enlivened occasionally by the
prestidigitation of State Senator

Experience of AiulKey and Beach. .
Ex -Senator Mulkey and S. C Beach
had quite an experience at Ely on
their way to Lakeview. It seems tbat
a young couple of tbat vicinity had
gone to Kalmath Falls to get married,
intending to return to Bly a certain
evening. Ulys tin-can brigade naa
their paraphernalia all ready for their
coming and bad their plans well laid.
The above gentlemen arrived at Bly
tbe same evening on the stage They
were assigned a double room. It hap
pened tbat this particular room waa
the one tbe serenaders supposed tbe
bride and groom were to occupy.
Little knowing what was in store for
them the distinguished gentlemen
retired and were Boon wrapped in
peaceful slumber. All of a sudden al
mighty clash of cans, bucket, pistols,
washtubs, and every other instrument
of noise burst forth at their open
window, as it the world had been
dumped into a rattle box. Yells of
"come out," "come out 1" were the
first intimation the gentlemen had of
what was up. Mr Beach tried to pur-
suade the crowd that tbey were mis
taken, but his voice was similar to
that of the groom and the crowd would
not let up. Beach was prancing
around the room and the crowd could
see Mulkey lying in bed and they
would yell out, "there she is, bring
her out" Finally the door was burst
open and Senator Mulkey appeared at
the door in his pajamas. He looked
to be dressed for a foot race, and the
crowd seized him by the arms and
dragged bim out doors and ran him
up and down tbe veranda a few times
in his bare feet.
Mr. Mulkey said he enjoyed the ex
perience, but it is safe to say be does)
not want to go through it again.
