SELECTED AS VET
Preference of N.-C. -O.
Management Likely to
On the surfuce there ap(cars no
change in the local railroad situation,
although there is evidently an under
current that promises to crop out soon
er or later. The location of the depot
grounds seems to be of the utmost im
portance, more so in fact than the rail
road itMclf. The only solution of the
puzzle seems to be for the N C. O.
Ky. management to come to Lakeview
and make its desires known. This it
is understood Mr. Dunaway will do
about May I.
The right-of-way problem has been
outlined in a way that it can be put to
the company for its sanction or rejec
tion, but the depot question is of an
other sort. Two locations are being
championed by their respective adher
ents, one being the Drenkel addition
and the other the fair grounds. The
situation is becoming more or leas
tense, and the outlook for a com
promise by the interested parties is not
at all flattering.
Should Mr. Dunaway come up next
week and signify his preference for
either site, it is quite likely that sufli
cient funds could be ruiBed in a short
time to secure the property. But the
right-of-way into or out of the city
limits might possibly be then injected
into the proposition which would fur
ther complicate matters.
O. J. Millis, J. 0. Christy and W.

a visit the first of the week. It is
clamed their visit was of no special
significance and was simply of inves
tigation of the resources of the country.
The information they appeared to be in
search of was in the way of timber
lands which would afford traflic for a

Dr. Lytle Recommends
One Covering Lake
Information has been received from
W. II. Lytle, State nheep inspector at
Pendleton, to the effect that he had
recommended to Governor West that a
quarantine proclamation be issued
covering Lake and Klamath Counties,
ami provided that until annulled all
cattle in order to pass into another
county or state must first have been
pronounced free from scabes or mange.
This quarantine will not prove a
hardship to any one as Government
officials will be able to muke all in
spections and will be assisted by such
county officials as are appointed. The
quarantine will probably be annulled

J. P. Duckworth, who conducts the

purchased from J. K. McCoul and

The sale also includes the barn recently
erected by Mr. McCoul at the rear of
the Civic Improvement Society's hall,
as well as the Ice house on Bear street.
The new owner will take charge on
May 1st, and there is no doubt but
what ho will mike good, as he is no
novice in the business. He expects
to put on several drays in connection
with the delivery and transfer equip

WOOL MARKET HAS

Call Issued For Big
Booster Meeting Sat-
Lakeview, Ore.. April 25, 1911.
We assume that you are a resident
and property owner in Lakeview, and.
that Lakeview is in Lake County;
this is our apology for addressing you.
We want to ask you a few questions
you need'nt mind about bringing us
the answers -just think them over by
your self and if they seem worth while,
tell them to your neighbor. Here
Do you believe in the development of
Lake County? Do you want to see
Lakeview grow? Is there any county
in the state with more idle wealth tied
up in uncultivated soil? Is there any
county that has more opportunities
and advantages to offer to the home
seeker and investor? Is the present
population of 4SG0 all the people you
want in Lake County? If not, are you
content to wait for them to increase in
the "good old way," or would you pre
fer to adopt modern methods and go
out after the ready made article, who
will be able to grub sage brush on his
arrival, and that wears pants with
dollars in the pockets? Do you believe
sage brush is more profitable than
alfalfa fields? Do you think fat beef,
hogs and mutton produce more wealth
than jack rabbits? Do you believe Jcat
tails and swamp grass are moreat trac
tive than grain fields that produce 50
bushels to the acre? Do you think or
chards that will some day have a world
wide reputation for their luscious and
perfect fruits would ninr the beauty
of your landscape?
We think you have a think coming,
and the sooner it 'arrives the sooner
there will be something doing to your
advantage and ours.
We believe Lake County able to
support a population of thousands of
happy, contented and prosperous peo
ple, where it now has but hundreds ;
that its development .will place it at
the head of Oregon's most valuable as
sets; that it has enough undeveloped
wealth to make the entire state fa

a movement that will result in bringing
the men and money that will assure

If so, how?" Kindly meet us at the

G. G. G. GIRLS CLUB I
SURE MAKE GOOD!
Keep Audience Convulsed
With Laughter Dur
ing the Evening
The girls of the "G. G. G." Club
may well feel proud of the play they
rendered on Friday evening, entitled
"The Six Kleptomaniacs." For an
amature performance it was certainly
well rendered, and kept the large au
dience in roars all the time. All of
the cast took their parts well, and
several of the young ladies showed
stage ability which will probably be
heard from later on. Much credit is
due to Mrs. L. F. Conn and Mrs. Thos.
F. Farrell, who drilled the girls for
many weeks prior to the play.
Between acts music was rendered
by Gott's Orchestra, as well as a solo,
"Dreaming," by Mrs. Norin, and a
quartette by Mesdames E. H. Smith,
Metzker, Willits and Norin.
Five Hundred Party
Mrs. V. L. Snelling and Mrs. F. A.
Fitzpatrickjentertained Saturday after
noon, April 22. The bidden guests
gathered at the Snelling residence
where five tables of Five Hundred
were played, after which they repair
ed to the home of Mrs. Fitzpatriek
where a dainty lunch was served. Two
long tables were set in the dining
room, and they were tastefully decor
ated with jonquils and ferns, while
streamers of yellow and white crepe
paper hung from the ceiling and were
held together over the center of each
table with clusters of large Easter
lillies of the same material. Easter
favors were presented to each guest.
Those present were :
Mesdames O'Neil, L. Seager, C.
Seager, Mushen, Bemis, Schminck,
Cronemiller, Farrell, Shirk, Johnson,
Magilton, McKendree, Brattain, E.

Second Timber Entries
A new ruliug by the Department
permits the local U. S. Land Office to
allow second timber or stone applica
tions where no rights were gained by
the first. Heretofore when a person had
made one application for a timber
claim and it was rejected regardless of
whether or not the land applied for
was subject to entry or for any other
reason it was necessary to forward the
second application to Washington to be
acted upon by the Commissioner of the
General Land Office. The new ruling
eliminates a large amount of red tape
and permits the applicant to exercise
his rights much more promptly.
Death of P. G. Chrisman
P. G. Chrisman, father of F. M.

day at Baker City. News ot his
death was received just aa the Ex

NEW STALLION LAW
EFFECTIVE MAY 25
i Applications Must In All
Cases Be Accompanied
By $10.00 Fee
Corvallis, April 20. The new stal
lion law which was passed at the last -session
of the legislature will go into
effect May 25. The Stallion Board
has been organized, and plans for the
work are being made, but no licenses
will be issued until after May 25.
Stallion owners should, however, get
in their appl ications before that date.
It will not be possible to register
and have examined all the horses in
the state in a day or two, so that some
time may intervene between the re
ceipt of the application and the issu
ance of the license. Iis not expected
that the owners stop using their horses
during that period, but it- is expected
that no horses will be used after May
25 until an applicationfor jlicense has
Animals having county licenses will
also have to get state licenses under
the new law, as there is no connection
between the state license and that is
sued by the county. Money paid for
county licenses will not count toward
securing state licenses. Copies of the
law and application blanks may be ob
tained from the secretary of the board
at Corvallis. It is not necessary, how
ever, that the application be on the
regular blanks. A letter will do as
well, providing the necessary informa
tion is included. All applications must
be accompanied by the f ID fee and, In
case of registered horses, by the pedi
gree certificate. These pedigrees will
be returned. For horses not pure-bred
the owner must give a complete state
ment of the horse's breeding.
