STRICKEN WITH PNEUMONIA- Wife and l$roth;r-ln Law Start fur Death lied at Once. He. malnt Buried at Portland. One of the saddest and in out tiltn shocks Unit the onlo of Luke county linn received for many a tiny, was the tlegram received by F. M. MIlItT last Saturday evntiiug, announcing the death of Dr. J. H. Dewey, which oo ourred lit (ilendiile, Oregon on Hint day. One could scarcely credit the report it was- huuIi a shoo. Mr. Milter received the telegram iu the evening Hiid left tlmt night liy private conveyance to overtake Mrs. Dewey at lily, who had started tlmt morning for Olendale in aimwer to a telegram ahu hud received ntatiug tlmt tier bus liand was quite ill with pneumonia. Mrs. Dewey waa JiihI recovering from an attack of Lagrlppe, and wan too Hi to travel, hut started nt once. Dr. Dewey, iu company with V, L. Knelling and A. K. Florence left.Lake view a littln over u week ago for Anil- land,' where they joined the Klkt Lodtfn. Mm. Dewey received a letter from the Doctor at Ashland saying that he had had "the time of bin life" and wrote in very high spirit. How ever, Minn I'earl WiUhire wrote her father that she had met Dr. Dewey JuHt I of ore he left for the north, and that he wan a filleted with a very se vere cold and whi suffering with ear ache, hut did not want v.ife to Know of h fur fear that It would wor ry h or, httoutmo she win not well. From Ashland ho proceeded toOlen- dnlo to visit aome of bis relative! who reside at and in that vlciolty, and there had an attack of pneumonia from which he died in a few days. Dr. Dewey waa one of the Lent known men in this Boot Ion, having ar rived here nearly twouty years ago, while a young vigorous mau, and shortly thereafter engaged iu the pro fession of dentistry, in which he at tained marked distiuctlun, and in the course of his practice, by Lin hon esty, fidelity, aud ek 111 won the h ind ent esteem from a large circle of ac qualuteuces, not only in Lake but ad joining counties. He waa an honored member of Luke view Lodge No. 63, I. O. O. F., Lake view Encampment No. 18, Lakeside Lodge 111, A. O U. W. He was for ty five years of age aud was born in the Eaat. He waa man led to Miss Dola Mlllla about twenty years ago. No children were born to them. Dr. Dewey waa coutddered one of the beat men in the community; hon orable, reliable, and prompt in bis dealings with his tellowman ; a good kind aud affectionate buubaud and a staunch friend. His death will touch the hearts of every person for more than a hundred miles around Lakeview It is sad to contemplate this sud den taking away of ao good aud useful a mau as Dr. Dewey, in the meridian of his life. He had accumulated a substantial competency, aud bad well enrned the privilege of eujoying the fruits of bis arduoua labors, and it is beyond the realm of human language to express the great loss In his un tlnioly death. He owned a half inter est In the Hotel Lakeview, which, It is estimated, is worth $35,000.00, be sides various other propertles.and has wisely provided for his wife In iusur- ance aggregating at loast ten thousand dollars. The separation of husband and wife I by death Is always heartbreaking, but In this case It seems doubly so. Dr. and Mrs. Dewey wer always together, worklag traveliug, in fact this separa tion was this first in many years, and bis sudden death, while away fioru his dearly loved wife was so sad. A letter : written by him to bis wife, a couple; or days before his death, in wineh Da tells of his 1 llness, and his longing for her presence, Is heartrending. The hearts of the whole oounty go out to Mrs. Dewey in this, her hour of deep sorrow. Mrs. F. M. Miller received a tele phone message from ber husband aud Mrs. Dewey Tuesdsy night stating that the y had Just arrived In Oleu dale, about 10;30, that night and that the remains would be taken to Port end for burial in the cemetery with his mother and brother. Tbe start from Olendale was made at oue o'olook yesterday moru lug. Current Comment. Christian Sc.heuhel. of Oregon City, law partner of W. H. U'Ren, has been nominated by the president for Dis trict Attorney for Oregon, vice, W. C. Bristol, whose name was recently withdrawn. Mr. Hcheubel was backed for the place by Kenator Uptime, while Kenator I'ultou, Representatives ilawley and Kills recommended Mr. Itlnghmii, of Halorn for the place. Tbe nomination was made during Mr. Ful tlns recent trip to Portalnd, aud Is a great surprise to three of the delega tion. Mr. Bcbeubel has held tho oflice of Justice of the l'eace, aud wan onco prominent In popullxt politics. The stutetnent of the condition of all fuuds in the State Treasury on December 31, 1907, shows that there was $4512,520.91 oo tho state's books.

The tlihtnct court of appeala baa handed dowu a decision in tho Mayor Scliiiiit. cane of Hun Francisco, which practically meaiia the release of both Kuef and Kchuiltz. The court holda that In extorting money from the French rextauraut no crime agaluat the law waa committed. Judge Hunt of the Moutiimt Federal court Iiiih lieeu aut to Portland to try the remaining laud fraud cases which were beguu Monday with F. J. Mon ey as the goverumeiita' speciul prone cutor.

Klamath county's tax levy this year Is Id mills. It is figured that on Klamath's aiseaaed value, this levy will raise $121,227.20. Six jurors out ot tbe venire of 3O0 talesmen was secured in tbe Thaw trial in New Vork. Last week The Examiner published a Hat of Lake county's deaths, births, aud marriages, for 1907. The list of deaths aud births was not complete, which fact was due to the negligence of tbe proper parties to have them re corded, acordiug to law. This matter baa boon brought to the attention of tbe authorities and pbysioians before, but It seems that little heed has been paid to the law ou this subject. Tbe report of the Lakeview post oflice for the year 1007, makes a good showing for this class of oflice. There were Kill money orders Issued, mountlug to 129,381.00 Tbe amount paid out on Money orders was $20,- 04(3.71. Registers number 2771. Tbe appointments of J. N. Watson and F. P.

Drattain came down from Paisley Monday to attend the annual meeting of the stockholders of the First National Bank, which was held Tuesday. J. P. Saloldo, who has been doing some excellent work for tbe Examiner at Klamath County, during tbe last month or more, returned to Lakeview Tuesday. Walter Howard came over to town last Sunday to see bow things wore going on in tbe burg, as he bad not been in town for several months. Walter says the roads are pretty bad bow. OUR INTERESTS DEMAND IT. An Equal Distribution of Representation in the District Will Serve all. Lake county is In a Representative district composed of Lake, Klamath, Crook and Grant counties, which Is entitled to two joint Representatives, and also in a Senatorial District com posed of Crook, Klamath aud Lake counties entitled to one Kenator. The interests of theae counties are diversified, Crook aud (irant counties are far to the north and dilllcult of adequate representation by men from the southeru part of the district, like wiae, Lake county is far to the south, and cannot possibly be represented by a man from any other part of the dis trict. A proper distribution of the representatives iu the legislature in this 'llatrict would give all represen tation. Lake has leen without repre sentation in the legislature, and the What was termod the "tough element" is said to have leen on a "bighlouesome" Saturady night aud made certain portions of our city hideous until after daylight Sunday morning. Mr. A. L. Pooro, who was here laat week and appeared before the land oflice in a content cane, while on the staud was suddenly siezed with ner vous prostration, aud was quite ill for a few days. An ordinance was introduced at the last council meetiug and referred to tbe fire committee to be reported up on at tbe next meeting, which' pro vides that buildings of three or more stories put in fire escapes. Harold Miles, one o! Warner valley industrious young men, passed through Lakeview this week on his way to Myrtle Creek, where be goes to visit his relatives. Mr. Miles will return to Lake county in April. George Small and daughter, Lora, spent last week in Lakeview from Sil ver Lake on land business. Miss Small bad homeeteaded a piece of land in tbe Silver L ke country, which was contested by a timber and stone ap plicant. Walter Robinson, who baa been working with the S. 1).

His father was a distinguished authority on con stl ra tio as 1 law. In 181)7 President Tucker succeeded his father aa professor af constitutional aud international law and equity la the Washington and Lee university, and In 1803 he waa elected dean of the schools ot JurtaprndstkM and law and politics and diplomacy Id Columbian university at WRshlngtoa Ha served (our terms In congress, retiring la 187. time has come when we need repre sentation there. We have as good tim ber as there is in the state, and there Is no reason why we should not send a man to tbe legislature; surely other parts of the district could not find objection. Let us get together on some good man and ail work for bis election. Wbile there are many who could represent us, we will suggest the name of Mr. H. A. Brattain, of Paisley. Mr. lirattain is one of tbe county's substantial business men, and having lived here many years is iu touch with every question effecting this section of country. We feel pos itive that Mr. lirattain is a man in whom the interests of this district can e safely pliced. That he is qualified fur this important position, there is no doubt. In regard to tbe notice of filing of plat of townvbip 3921, published in The Examiner, tbe Lakeview Land office has received instructions from the General Laud Oflice directing this oflice to withhold tbe filing of this pint for further orders The Examiner published an ad vertisement for Geo. W. Reynolds, of Portland. Mr. Reynolds writes as follows: "Your paper is certainly a good medium through wbicb to reach the people, and I am well pleased with the results of my advertisement.' II. J.

Thomas is one of tbe directors of the savings bank instead of C. A. Rehart. Death of Baby duy. Tbe three weeks old baby of Mr. and Mrs. U. R. Guy died last Friday This sweet frail lily was allowed to bloom but a short time in this world of sorrow, to be transplanted to tbe garden of Ueaveu. Wbile tbe parents mourn for tbe little one, and a great loneliness is felt in their hearts, still we cannot but feel that just to live and then to die, is a most beautiful tning to be given birth, then to for ever Jive in 'the realms above What more could be wished for? Yet it is hard to ieel this, when tbe little one is our owu, andjwe have to give it up. Fell Upon Sharp Ax. The Oregonian oi the 1th of Jan. contained an article describing horri ble death of the 13 year old son of D. li. Meilck, of Washington. The boy and his sister were playing about their home, when tbe boy fell upon an ax, wbicb was lying with tbe edge up, which struck tbe boy in the back, severing his backbone, and entering tbe vital organs. Tbe lad was a nephew of Mrs. Dan Chandler, of this place. The Meanest Man. Bill Nye had truth well told when he said : "A man may use a wart on tbe back of his neck for a collar but ton ; ride on the back coach of a railroad train to save interest on his money till th conductor gets around ; stop bis watch at night to save wear and tear; leave bis "i"or"t" without a dot or cross to save ink , but a man of this sort is a gentleman and a scholar compared to the fellow who will jtake a newspaper two or three years and when asked to tay for it puts it into the offioe and has it marked "Refused". 1 ' Lake' Unjust State Tax. Lake oounty, on a property valua tion of $3,550,000.20 and a population of about 3,000, pays 113,000 state tax es, while Klamath county on' pro perty valuation of $7,582,950 and pos sibly 6000 population, pays $15,105.90. This shows tbe iujutioe of the manner in which tbe state taxes Lake county. Klamath with twloe the amount of property and people pay but little more state taxes. Because Lake ooun ty has q representation In the legis lature we are imposed upon in the most on scrupulous manner. REHART VISITS HEW YORK PARKS. The City was Planned on Gigantic Scale. PARTS ARE WELL DISTRIBUTED Some of the Parka of the Citj e Contain Nearly as Much as a Section of Land. . Editor Examiner: The City Fathers of New. York City evidently looked far into tbe future growth of population, while tbe city was in its infancy, by providing nu merous parks, both large and smalL throughout tbe city. In order for the Examiner' readers to understand the absolute necessity of these parks for health alone, will state that tbe most sparcely populated part of the city contains about 190.000 persons to the square mile. The map of New York City proper, and Manbatten alone shows more than 50 parks scattred pretty well over the length and breadth of the city averag ing in size at least one block in area. Furthermore they are in all sizes and shapes, and in places contain only a ' small strip of ground well set out to lawn and trees. The Bronx Park con taining 103 acraa is situit9.1 up ton ia tbe Manhattan residence district adjacent to the tuDlara ail beautiful , part of the city. It is well laid out, well set to a lawa ai 1 trees ia whioh there is a large green house, bo large that you are tired oat before passion through the different sections, also another large building with exhibits of various kinds, that is equally fatiguing, even to examine one of the rooms critically. Central park bordering Fifth avenue on tbe East and Eighth avenue on the west side and extending from 59th street to 110th lengthwise of the city, having an area of 430 acres, is near one half mile wide and about two and one half miles long. This park ia most artistically laid out, in Harmony to its natural surroundings, and in perfect harmony to tbe lay of the ground, upon which it is situated. Tbe land is slightly undulating, rising and falling about 100 feet in eleva tion, in tbe different parts of the park. First with a high stone wall all around tbe same, with frequent open ings for entrance and exit. Next, there is a fine driveway, all around the park with frequent . cross diive ways, all laid out with asphaltum making a driveway exceedingly smooth There are numerous walks throughout the park, laid with cement all being; harmoniously curved around tbe hills and valleys and none are straight, and provided with numerous restingplaces. Between the driveways and foot walks all is set out to lawn and trees, with the exception of the reservoirs, of which there are three. These reser voirs are placed upon the highest ground, two are each about 100 yards square, and the third near a half mile across, formed in a ciroualr shape. This park is rightly named the lungs of New York City. In addition to tbe foregoing there is a free exhibit, a' large menagerie, and a very large museum of which more anon. 8. V. Rehart. Williamson (Jets New Trial. Ex Congressman, J. N. Willamsoo, whose third trial for land fraud re sulted in conviction, has been grant ed a new trial by the Supreme Court of the United States on grounds of error by the trial judge. In revers ing tbe decision of the lower court, the Supreme court decides a question that ia of much importance to timber and claimants. The court holds that a timber land entryman may safely enter iuto an agreements to sell his claim bbtween the dates of his filing and final proof. So long as no agree ment has been made to dispose of tbe land before filing, entryman may do whatever he pleases, -with bis claim hereafter and his title will not be . affected. This ruling is news to all, as it baa always been the opinion that no deal oould be made disposing of a claim until tbe patent bad issued, and for that matter, the sale of timber land secured under the timber and stoned law waa a questionable transaction at any time.
