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
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
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

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.

An Equal Distribution of Representation in

Crook and Grant counties, which Is
entitled to two joint Representatives,
and also in a Senatorial District com

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

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.

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.
The City was Planned on
Gigantic Scale.
Some of the Parka of the Citj
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.

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 .
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.
