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 our product. 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 Our Essie. 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. A beautiful choir of voices delighted the people in tbe vicinity of the Oeo. Storkman ho ire, Wednesday night where the bride and groom, Mr. aud Mrs. McKendree, were staying, when they were surprised by tbe delightful strains of some old familiar songs. 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 Oregon. The Senator eulogized the people of Lake county, and bis sincerity is not questioned. 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 Lakeview attended. 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. Obituiry. The death angel visited the borne of Mrs. M. M. Frakes of Warner Lake Oregon, at 7 o'clock A. M. July sixth and called to a higher life our dear aud loving frieud Grandma Patience Flower, who after many years of suf fering entered iuto a peaceful rest at the ripe age of eighty six years, two days. Mrs. Paitence Adeline Flwoer nee Patience A. Ware was born in Herki mer County N. Y. When sixteen years of age she went to Michigan, where she met aud at tbe age of eigh teen was united iu marriage to Loreu za Dow Frakes, to this union was born three children ; Nathau, Melissu and Jobu, all of whom preceded their mother to tbe beyond. In 18.T2 Mr. Frakes went to Cali fornia to seek a fortuue amid tbe gold fields, but instead, like many others to tbe borne beyond. Later in 1800 Mrs. Frakes married Norman Flower, having no children tboy adopted a little baby girl, Jessie Flower. After twenty five yoars of bappy union, Mr. Flower passed to his heavenly borne, lu 1815 she decided to come to Ore gon to pass tbe remainder of ber life with ber oldest sou Nathuu, who pre coded ber over the river of death about three years ago, her daughter 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. Frakes to whom highest tribute is due. During her entire time Grand ma made her borne here, Mrs. Frakes was constantly with ber and cared for her as only a true and loving daugh ter could, administering all that love arid ever willing hands could to sweet en her declining years and soften all her pains. M rs. Flower has been an invalid for several years, and about four years ago she fell, breakng ber bip, thus rendering her almost help less. At one time Mrs. Flower joined the Methodist Church, but later accepted tbe Seventh Day Adventiit belief and died in tbe full beile' that "For tbe Lord himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout with the voice of the Arch Angel and with tbe triumph of Uod, and the dead in Christ shall ri.e liri-t. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet tbe Lord in tbe air; and so shall we ever be with tbe Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. "in tbe light of this religion, Grandma Flower lived for many years. In its comforting knowl edge she met and welcomed tbe mes senger when be came to release ber from her earthly ties, in its light she gladly looked forward to the time when she should stand, as doubtless she does staud today, and with loved ones gone before, on tbe flower decked shores of the land immortal. Memorial services were conducted at two o'clock Sunday, July seventh, 1007, at the Bidwell Church by Drotber Samuel Combs. After befitting bnrial rites the body was laid to rest in tbe Bidwell Cemetery, by tbe side of ber son, Nathan Frakes, and grand daughter, Libbie Frakes. The many beautiful floral decorat ions were silent testimonials from lov ing friends who will ever cherish sweet memorie-t of Grandma Flower. As we last viewed tbe sweet face amid tbe glowing wreatbes and breath ing flowers, she appeared as if in a quiet peaceful sleep with her life ex pressing some gentle blessing and en- cc v agin;." sad hearts to trunt anJ hope and work for tbe good of being and tbe fruits of tbe heavenly life. Besides relatives she leaves a legion of friends to mourn their loss. Dear ones weep nor ; "The last farewell has now been said. The bitter tear of parting shed, Aud deab has claimed his own; But yonder, on Life's golden shore Tho Mother lives forevermore, Where parting is not. known." Find peace and comfort in tbe as surance that "She is not dead but slepeth. " "Sne has found the mystic portal, Hidden from earthly sight; She has joined tbe hosts immortal, That have entered into light. We may stumble on in darkness Bruise our feet with many a stoue. But "Our Grandma" glides iu rapture Through a world or worlds unknown. "A Friend." 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 patting bei geutly on the cheek and she blushing some, just for old-times sake? What more can this old world give to a happily wedded pair, than tbe fulfillment of long years together? EX U, S, SENATOR F, W, MULKEY, Visits Lakeview with State Senator Beach. LEARNING EASTERN OREGON. Studying the Conditions in Eastern Oregon. Impressed with Lake County. Ex-United State Senator Frederick W. Mulky and State. Senator S. O. Beach arrived in Lakeview last San day aud remained here till yesterday. Senator Mulkey getting acquainted with people and conditions and Sen ator Beach renewing old acquaintance and interviewing tbe people as to their needs from state legislation. Tbe eentlemen came unannounced, knowing but a short time before start ing that tbey were coming. Groups of men, and sometimes wo men, (for tbe distinction Senator Mulkey gained in Washington last winter found its way to tbe remotest . corners of the world and Lakeview ladies possess tbat "Missouri" charac teristic, and wanted to be shown that "handsomest man In the senate."! 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 Beach. Tuesday tbe gentlemen took a drive down to Pine Creek to meet the far mers of tbe valley and tbe State lino town Senator Mulkey is an interesting gentleman and makes friends of all he meets. One of bis epecial studies ia j tbe National forest question. 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. Cory -Newell. P. M. Cory aud Miss Martha E". Newell, were united in marriage last Sunday at tbe home of tbe brides parents in Drews valley, at 2 o'clock, P. M., tbe Rev,. A. J. Armstrong officiating.
