Lakcvicw, Oregon, Thursday, .Inly J7, 1011
Postmaster-General Hitchcock is
adopting measures of economy by
which he expects to wipe out the de
ficit. A test made at St. Louis showed
that second-elass matter could be ship
ped from New York on freight instead
of mail cars at a reduction in cost from
9 cents to naif a cent a pound and the
new system is being tried with month
Iv and semimonthly publications sent
from the east to main distributing
centers at Cincinnati. Chicago. Kansas
City. St. Louis. St. Taul and Omaha.
The saving at St. Louis alone is es
timated to reach $800,000 a year. The
extinction of the deficit is to be follow
ed next session by a movement for 1
cent letter postage.
New York politics are responsible
for the United States Senate's delay
in passing the reapportinment bill. The
Democratic bill gives New York six
new members and necessitates a redis
ricting of the state. If the bill should
pass the Democrats could fix the dis
tricts to their advantage for the next
10 years. Therefore. Senator Root is
fighting the bill on the ground that it
is unwise to increase the ..membership
of the House, and the Democratic
House leaders are demanding action,
threatening to postpone adjournment
mdefinitely unless the House passes it.
They ii.'.imate that it is the sole busi
ness of the House to fix its membership.
It is not presumed that tha removal
of the terniijs of the N-.C.-O. will
have any appreciable effect on Alturas
business interests, inasmuch as our
sister city is having a very healthy
growth. The loss ot business received
through the passenger and freight
traffic by reason of being the terminus
will be otTset by the natural increase
in business, and hence wiii not be felt
as would be the case if circumstances
were otherwise. Anl besides if one
were to draw conclusions from the
treatment accorded the railroad people,
Alturas did not appreciate the business
acquired through travelers being
required to remain in her hotels over
night, to say nothing of the money ex
pended bv teamsters and others who
spent large sums of money there by
virtue of the town being the terminus.
Pleased With This Section
J. A. Donovan, manager of Water
house & Lester, a big hardware firm of
San Francisco, arrived here a few days
since to enjoy well-earned vacation.
He is interested in several enterprises ,
hereabouts and he was combining busi
ness with pleasure.
Mr. Donovan is greatly pleased with
this section, and, before leaving . San
Francisco met C. O. Misener, the real
estate ,man. who is now in the Middle
West interesting the people in this sec
tion. Mr. Misenor had just hadan in
terview with the Western Pacific Rail
way officials, and the talk he put up
was so convincing that before he quit
the aforesaid officials had kindly con- maker.
sented to expend not less than $20,000
in exploiting Goose Lake and Surprise
The railway officials while havinga
general knowledge of the country
were nevertheless surprised to learn of
the wonderful opportunities awaiting
both investors and homeseekers here
abouts, and when fully advised con
cerning conditions bad no hesitancy
in stating what they would do.
In the Hoag District
Alturas Plaindealer : J. H. Derevan
paid a visit to Bidwell and the Hoag
mines last week. He confirms the re
ported sale of the interestjof Jim
Williams in the Consolidated company
to J. M. Stone. Mr. Williams was one
of the original owners and when the
company was stocked retained 450,000
shares. Mr. Stone is now the owner
oi these shares, but no prices are
given, though we are satisfied that it
was a handsome sum of money. Mr.
Derevan says a steam hoist will be at
once installed at the Mountain View,
where a large and very rich schute
has been struck. The aerial tramwav.
Mr. Derevan says, will soon be com
pleted to the Sugar Pine mine when
double shifts will be put to work in the
mine3 and the mill will then be run
night and day. As soon as everything
is working smoothly five more stamps
will be added to the mill.
The followinsg officers were elected
by the Consolidated Company, for the
ensuing year: J. M. Stone Presideit
and General Manager ; Jerome Moffit,
Vice-President ; Dr. Glazier. Secretary ;
; Herny Kober. Treasurer. The Board
The Oregon tamily of commercial of Directors elected are as follows:

fault. We want to suggest that here'
after these fault finders attend public
meetings and all suggest the right way
to do things.
Tho committees did overlook few
things but it was not done intention- !
ally. The only way to make a success!
in public doings is to all pull together. '
Every man and woman should be public
spirited enough to boost for everything :
that is for the good of the town in i
which they live. The committee
wish to thank all who so kindly helped i
to make the Fourth a success. j
An all night dance will be given at
New Pine Crock next Friday night.

L. M. Henderson, the new proprie

Henry Wendt tought a gasoline en
gine which he will use to run his ice

W. 11. Reed, our shoe and harness
received a deed on July 20
for the property in which he now has
his shoe and harness shou. He pur
chased this property last full, but as
he was waiting for his money from the
east he gave a mortgage on the prop
erty. His money arrived July Sth.
We feel that Mr. Keed with his home

The Board of Directors of Kelly
Creek school held a meeting last Mon
day night and decided to hold an elec
tion on August 15, to decide whether
to build a new school house. This dis
trict is sadly in need of a new school
house and it is to be hoped that we
have enough public spirited men to go
to the polls August 15th and vote
"yes" to the bonding of the district for
$1000. Money spent for good schools
is well spent.
We have been informed that the Fort
