N.-C.-O. Offers Rare Inducements
to Settlers to Ship Produce
But Thirty Cents Per 100 On Potatoes to Reno
While Freight On Vegetables, Fruit, Etc.,
Is Proportionately Low
The above letter received vesterdav
bv Postmaster Ablstrom. is self-ex-dlanatorv
and its importance to Lake
view will be readily aooreciated. The
Lakeview office does an enormous busi
ness both in stamp sales and money or
ders and with a postal savincs bank tn
connection, it will probably be neces
sary to increase the office space. Mr,
Ahlatrom received no instructions
other than the above and does not kr'ow
whether the addition will necessitate
any more office help or nfct He is of
tbe opinion that all third olasa post
offices are to be designated as postal
savings deoositories.

E. 8. Berney Is Confident
System Will Be Com
pleted This Year
E. S. liernevof the Herney Construc
tion Company, tho first of the week
oame in from the Drews Creek dam
and to an Examiner reDresuntative slat
ed that the work ia progressing satis
factorily. Tho force emolovod on the
dam has been Increased and the work
ia now about three-fourths done. The
dam is completed about 30 feet above
the outlet, althoueh no attempt haa a,a
vet been made to store the waters, as
there Is no likelihood that the system
will be completed in time for use dur
ing the coming seBon.
Mr, Herney is of the opinion that
this year will see the completion of
the entire system and that in 1913
water will be ready for distribution
over the lands subject to irrigation in
Goose Lake Vsllev. It might be added,
however, t hut there remains a large
amount of work unfinished which will
reauire the expenditure of many thous
ands of dollars, and thia money Is to
be raised bv means of a bond issue.
There is scarcely a doutt but that the
bonds will be floated in the very near
future, and that the work will pro
ceed uninterruptedly during the com
ing season.
Many Lots Are Changing

Alturas Savings
Postmaster Jamea T. Neglev, of Al
turas. announces that there are thirty
depositors in the Postal Savings Bank
at that place. The deposits total SI 500.
The bank wus opened last November.
Lakeview people are certainly wide
awake when it comes to getting in on
the ground floor in city property, if the
number of sales during the past sever
al weeks ia anv criterion. Thus far
Center street and Walters Addition
have been the center of operations, al
though a tew sales in other parts of
town have also been made. Jim Judge
has purchased the Sam Blackburn
property on Water Street immediately
south of F. M. Duke's residence, while
H. C. Funk has bought from H. W
Drenkel the lot facing X. Arzner'a
property. W. E. Scott has also pur
chased a lot from Mr. Drenkel. it being
located west of L. E. Seager's resi
dence. On ('enter street lust east of
Jack McAuliffe's residence. J. W. Hun

purchased two lots, while Jack Mc-
Auliffe has purchased the corner lot
just north of II. O. Kuhl'a residence
A number of other sales are on the
tapis, and will probably be consum
mated in the near future.

No Change In Mail Servics
Now Likely to Be
The splendid weather of the oast
week has changed the railroad situation
and there now seems no danger of it
becoming necessary to discontinue tbe
operation of trains on account of a soft
roadbed. The track seems to have been
at its worst Wednesday and Thursday
of last week, owing to the continued
rainy weather. Since that time, how
ever, no moisture has fallen, the water
alsongside the grade have receded and
everything points to the early comcle
J tion of the ballasting of (he road to
Lakeview. The work is being pushed
as rapidly as possible and the crews
are now at work in the vicinity of

The real importance of the advent
of the N.-C.-O. Railway to the Goose
Lake Valley and tributary territories is
manifested in tbe extremely low com
modity rates which that line has placed
on produce to beahipDed oat of the val
ley. The promoters ot tbe road are
doing tbe country a great deed in this
commendable move as this will give
tbe country an opportunity for early
development. The establishment of
these rates to southern points ia cer
tainly an inducement tor tbe producer
of this section to begin farming on a
commercial scale.
The following rates to Reno from
Lakeview over the N.-C.-O. are now in
effect :
