U. M. Ingram, foreat supervisor,
bas decided uot to bold a meeting
tbia yerf for the purpose of allotting
the range to the various applicants,
but will reoeive applications for range
by mall and act ou the applications
from his office In Lakeview. This de
cision was reaobed after conversation
with many of the stockmen, who be
lieved the inconvenience of a trip, to
attend suob meeting could be avoided,
Mr. Ingram concurring in tbia belief.
He is writing letters to the various
stockmen whom he believes want
range within the National forests, and
mailing them each au application for
the range they desire, lie ia very
well pleased with the manner in
which the stockmen co-operated with
him last year, and bulievei a uoutinu

That Orlm Reaper.
The death of O. L. Mlkel, which
occurred Isat Saturday morning, Jan
nary 18, 1908, is another one of those
unmistakable evlueuces tbst the Grim
Rasper is no reapector of persons,
and calls to tbeh reckoning the young
and strong the same as the weak.
That strong men in ibe prime of
life should be taken from tbe'r dally
work and within a week their families
and friends bending over tbeii cold,
still form taking their last long and
tearful look at a departed husband,
father or friend is shocking.
That fstsl disease, pneumonia,
aiezed Mr. Mikei but a week ago,
and uD Saturday morniog be breathed
his last. Deceased leaves a wife, one
grown son and one grown daughter, a
brother, J. W. Mlkel, an old resident
of this place.
He waa 48 years old, was born in
Wayne county, Kentucky, married
Mlsa Lora II in ton In the East, cams
to Lakevie about a year ago, where
be bas resided since. The remains
were laid to rest in the I. O. O. F.
Cemetery last Sunday, after the
funeral service at the Methodist
Church at 2 o'clock in the afternoon
of that day, Rev. Armstrong conduct
ing the same.
The Examiner extends heartfelt
sympathy to the bereaved wife and
Word was received here Saturday ot
the death at Pine Creek of Mr. Newt.
Plummer, a young man of that place.
Ths cause of death was pneumonia,
which took this young man from earth
in a few days from the time be took
tick. He was a strong young man,
and bad every assurance that any one

It makes tu' Uewole to see the strong
go down before this dreadful disease
as if mown with a ey the. But each is
the will of the Almighty, and all mast
obey his call.
Eastern Land Seekers.
Mj C. ,H. McCumber, the Dairy
timber cruiser, brought several East
ern land seekers to Lakeview, arriving
here last Monday. In the party are,
M. P. Doyle and Q. W. Allen, of Loy
al, Wis., A. Kuckuk, of Shawano,
Wis., and A. W. Hickman, of Aurora,
Neb. The gentlemen are - said to be
capitalists, and in Klamath Falls mys
tery seemed to surround their trip to
these, parts. It was surmised that
they were on a land deal of consider
able importance. Mr. Allen, of Loy
al, Wis., has for a year past been a
subscriber to The Examiner, and bas
no doubt gained sufficient information
from this paper to induce him to
make a visit to Lakeview, and Lake
county. r ' ;
The Silver Lake Leader says they
have a right to kick at the report of
Lake County's annual birth Hat,
whioh gives Silver Lake but three.
Well, Bro. you may kick as hard as
you please, but be sure you kick the
right person. The Examiner took
the list of births which it published
from the records at the County phy
sicians office, where every birth with
in the county should be recorded, ac
cording to law, and we presumed the
law had been complied with. So when
you kick, find the right place to kick
and then kick good and hard, and.
give 'em one for ns, and then kick
again at the neglect in regard to re
cording the deaths whioh should also
be done, according to law.
The fellow who stole W. M. Har
vey's overshoes and left here some
days ago, landed at Paisley, where
Mr. Harvey heard gt him, and, 'phoned
to have him leave the oversbea,whicb
he did. The fellow sold an. overcoat
there for $5 for expense money. What
was the use of his doing that, when

Silver Lake Editor Would
GOVERNMENT CANNOT FORCE-
To Enter Into Contracts for Car
tying Mails at Kates They
Think too Low.
The man of the Central Oregonian,
of Silver Lake, peraiats in trying to
muddy the water around the qnestion
of parcels post.
Since the publication of Ths Exam
iner article, of which this editor finds
fault the Luited States Government
has announced Its incompetency to
compel a railroad to deliver mails even
in accordance with the specifications
of a contract, willingly entered into
by the railroad, the government hav
ing no relief but the withholding of
pay for services not rendered, and
threatened, as a final resort, to return
to the star route service. This is the
If the government cannot compel a
railroad to perform a service in ac
cordance with a contract willingly
made, how shall it compel a railroad
to make a contract for euch service at
a rate it is unwilling to accept if it
is unwilling to do so?
It was in view of the known fact
that this is impossible under exiow -conditions,
that in the original Ex
aminer article it was contended the
United States Government is incapaci
tated to establish uow and conduct
successfully a system of parcels post
without resort to those extraordinary
pawersnd! govrenment, which Udagov
renment has never invoked in time of
peace, and for the employment of
which powers there is no constitu
tional grant, except in time of war..
Yet this is what the Orgeonain insists
should be done. : .'"v"'' .'
The railroads m'ght be arbitrarily
aiezed by the military army' of ' the
government, and operated by the gov
ernment. But to do this for any
other cause thau that of military
necessity in time of war is without
warrant, and necessarily revolution
ary. This position taken in The Ex
aminer remains untouched, and can
not be shaken. '
The Good Boy.
Onoe there was a very good boy.
He would always do what he waa told
to do. One day his mother said,
"You may go op town and play."
He said then, "Oh, I don't want to,
I would be better off at borne." "I
am going to go up town," said his
"School will start Monday," He
said, "So I will stay borne and work.
Here comes someone now. Ob t it is
my cousin nob art. I can bave some
fun now." "I will leave you here to
play and have a nice time," said hia
The boy said to bis cousin, "We
will go out in the hay and play. How
long can you stay?" Hia cousin said,
"I can stay till six o'clock." The
boys had a nloe time. They played
house, sheep and dog.
When six o'clock eame it was dark.
The boys said, "Good-bye."
