With a view of starting a thoroughly
equipped - hospital which is badly
needed here. Mrs. E. M. Simpson, of
Ukiahoma uity. Ukla.. is looking over
the field and has secured prices on
several locationa that will fill the' bill
nicely. Lakeview has long needed a
Institution of this kind and the comin
of Mrs. Simpson will eliminate the
necessity of having hospital patients
and those needing the best of care
while aick. from going to Alturas
Klamath and taking the long hard trip
when not in a condition to etand the
strain of such a journey. The.institu

county that needa its services. The
work la a worthy one and it ia hoped
that the lady will be aucceasful in her

Dry Farming Pays
J. W. Dykeman. of Lakeview has
just returned from a trio to Paisley
and brought back some rye grass and
blue joint grass that are fine specimens
of what can be done without irrigation.
The specimens were grown on the
ranch of Wm. Dobkins near the town
and are on exhibition in the Examiner
office. Dobkins has three hundred tons
of blue joint grown without Irrigation
while other products arown on the
same place are on a par with the hay
crop. The fine showing that la made
there and in other valleya of the
county demonstrates beyond all shadow
of a doubt, that the man that comes
here and will work can grow whatever
he needs without irrigation. Lake
County needs cultivation instead of
irrigation and the wonderful showing
this year amply proves this statement.
the same story comes from Christmas
Lake, its a certainty in Goose Lake
has been shown in Silver Lake and
Warner Volleys and othera as well.

County O'Regon. Jim Barry
pressible Historian and Statesman savs
that Lake county needa more Irish to
till the soil. lie says that there are
hundred or thousands or the race on
the Paciflo Coast, the great majority
of them are complaining about the
high cost of living and here we have
thousands of acrea of the best lands
waiting for each Irishman that will
come and till them or run stock upon
them. He blames the Irish for the
louses on account of the lack of hav
last winter for they should have come
here and grown it so that the men that
are running stock could have bought
it when thev needed it. Mr. Barry's
argument is unassailable. Lake county
aure needs the farmer and the grower
of grain and hay.
When the Oregon Pioneer crossed the.
plains in the earlv ?ava over the "Ore
gon Trail" hia dreaming vision had
pictured a land of enchantment, where
the magic born of plenty was pouring
forth her riches in a golden stream.
This vision was broken bv the many
hardahios that these men of the esrly
daya went through, and one of them
ia recalled when it touches a part of
the history of the Goose Lake Valley
fifty years ago by a clipping from the
old Jacksonville Gazette of that time.
"A nephew of the late Joseph Bailey
returned from the scene of the recent
massacre to the bead of the valley on
Sunday. He sava that the fight occured
on the first of August. 1861. at the
head of Pitt river, about forty miles
south of Goose Lake, near the close of

first shock of the conflict thev were not
aware of the presence in that neighbor

the lor g forgotten episodes that showed

Salem. Or.. According to a report
received vesterdav by State Engineer
John H. Lewis, the general land office
baa made a ruling in favor of the
desert land entrvman in thia state.
which enables the entryman on
desert claim to make final proof and
secure title to his desert claim, before
securing final water right certificate
from the atate.
Water rights for desert claims, like
all othera are initiated by filing
water rieht application in the office of
the atate engineer. Thia application is
subsequently approved, and returned
to the applicant, and is hia authority
to construct works and apply the
water to the irrigation of hia claim

the land office certificate ia replaced
by a deed after final water right certi
ficate or deed after the land is all
pnder irrigation.
It waa thia water right certificate
that the land office demanded of an
entryman holding down a claim in an
isolated desert near Denio, 150 miles
from the nearest railroad station at
Winnemucca. Nevada, and equally as
far from the local land office at Burns.
The matter waa brought to the atten
tion of State Engineer Lewis, and he
advised the general land office of the
conditions. pointing out that proof
could be made on a desert claim In
three years, while under the state laws
five years or longer is allowed to com
plete an appropriation of water. It
waa also ahown that such a ruling
would operate greatly to the disadvan
tage of the entryman on an isolated
desert claim, enduring hardship in his
endeavor to build up the -state and at
the same time make a living.
A favorable reply to this appeal was
received yesterday and the entrvman
will hereafter be reuuired to furnish
only a certified copy of hia permit and
a statement from the atate engineer
to the effect that the failure to furnish

Dispose of Seized Goods at
. Place of Capture, Will
Save County Money
Assistant District Attorney John
Venator, and Sheriff Warner B. Snider
are filling all the available space m
the Court House with contrabrand
"Boose" seised at Paisley. There are
altogether about five thousand bottles of
beer and large ousnities of liauors held
bv the officers. District Attorney
Venator states clearly that in the future
no liquors seised will be brought her
but will be disposed of at the place
wbere tbev were captured, as the
bringing of the liquors to Lakeview ia
needless expense to the eounty. The
strict enforcement of the laws regard
ing the illegal sale of liquor will result
from the eroiaade that has started and
no law breaker in the county can ex
pect to get away with the goods. A eix
hore team of liauors destined for
Paisley was stooped at the atate line
bv a messenger sent out by the owners,
and it had a very narrow escape from
being seised bv the officers. The peo
ple of Paislev are assisting to clean
their town of all scl'ers dealing in the
traffic and their co-operation makes
possible the conviction of those arrest
ed in the recent raids.
