Selection of 2000 Acres
Made at Summer
T. A. Rinehart. SUite Lsnd Agent
during the past week hus been making.
a number of indemnity schoi.l selections
of marginal lands around Summer
lake, using asbnse stste lands included
in the National Forest. The purpose
of the selections is along the lines in
dicated in the Examiner to tho c.fect
that the Stute Land Hoard is prepar
ing to secure control of the salt and
borax deposits known to exist in Lake
county. Thus far no attempt hBS been
made so far as known to secure lands
claimed bv locators or others who
have possession of such deposits, and
the lieu selections made are on unap
propriated lands as shown bv the re
cords of the U. S. Land Office. How
ever, should it prove that some of the
selections are claimed under the min
eral laws, a verv nice question of
right to the land would no doubt arise.

Puiret Sound cities, attended the races
at Portland, the round-uu ut Pendle

County Fair at Klamath Falls, and in
fact he had a regular monkey and
parrot time. Probably the most en
jovaule event of the trip was its finish,
for he remarked to an Examiner rep
resentative shortly after getting out of
the auto that "these old hills sure
look good." The round-uu at Pendle
ton he considered the best thing he
saw on the trip. The rains proved too
muoh for him. however, und although
the Willamette looked nice and green
yet he was .very muoh pleused to get
home. .And it might be added that he
received a warm greeting on his return
from his numerous friends, many of

BERNARD C. S1TZ
IS UNDER ARREST
Charged With Securing
Money Under False
Bornanl C. Sits, well known in Lake
view where he conducted a real estate
business for dome time, subsequently
removing to Willow Ranch. Cal.. has
been arrested on a charge of securing
monev under fsbo pretenses. Sitz
was for some time secretary of the
Lakeview Development Company
afterward branching out under the
name of the Tri-State Land Co. For
some time past bis dealings have been
Questionable, and on more than one
occasion he was compelled to refund
monev paid as part pnvment on certain
land deals. He .would enter into eon
trat to sell land at so much down with
balance in monthly payments, and
those in a position to know claim that
he has made some $33,000 in the busi
ness. It is alleged that while acting as
secretary of the Lskeview Develop
ment Co. Sitz sold a number of con
tracts, using tne Company's ramo and
signing as secretary, his action in so
doing being unauthorized. It is said
that he sold 16 10-acre tracts in Sec.
12. 39-20. which land belonged to Geo.
Jammerthal. and which lots subse
quently excanged for others. The con
tracts were sold to Maricopa. Cal.. aa

Apples Blown Off
Much damage has been done the

prevailed during the past month. Kellev
Oriles wns up from Davis Creek few

has blown a large share of the apples
from tho trees and unless a change soon
takes place there will be but few left.
So much wind at .this time of vear is

ARTESIAN WATER ON
Flow Struck at Depth of
480 Feet, and Going
An artesian flow of water was struck
Monday morning on J. II. Leahmann'
ranch west of town. George Ede.
who has been at work on the well for
several weeks, met with success at
depth of 480 feet although the flow is
not very strong. This is no doubt
accounted for the bv fact that the flow
appears to be in a bed of quicksand,
and the latter has a tendency to stoa
up the two-inch pipe which tapped the .
flow. The well was started with three
inch casing, but after reaching a depth
of more than 300 feet the pipe broke,
and then further progress was made by
inserting the two-inch pipe and con
tinuing the work.
When the flow was struck much en
thusiasm prevailed at the welt, and the
jubilant shouts attracted oassersby.
D. A. Handbury. of the West Side,
was the first to reach the well and he
proceeded at once to get the first drink
of artesian water in Goose Lake Val
ley. The well is now being sunk deep
er, exnectinig to strike a Peuer now.
Other wells will be sunk, aid there
appears no doubt but that a flow suffi
cient for irrigation purposes will be
struck, and in that event there will be
a wonderful change in land values and
conditions generally hereabouts m the
verv near future. The point at which
the water was struck might be termed
in the middle of the vallev. and there
fore ranchers near the hills are of the
opinion that there is no doubt but that
