Senator Bourne Writes to
County Clerks Outlin

K. E. Kooier has associated himself
with F. P. Cronemiller. doing business
ander the name of the Examiner Pub

the Lake County Examiner. There
will be no change in the editorial or
business Dolicv of the naoer. Dunne
the oast six or eieht months Mr. Crone
miller has not enioveU good health,
which condition his o h y s i c i a o
attributes to the fact that he has been
caving too close attention to business
affairs. He will therefore shift much
af the resoonsibilitv in the conduct of
the business to Mr. Koozer. who has
equal authority to transact any business
in connection with ihe new 8 paper and
Citizenship of Female Ap

as that of Husband
Lakeview is entering uoon a new era
f develooment. which in turn will
bring about many changes over oresent
xistintr circumstances. With the
chanee from the old to the new we will
be comoelled to face numerous condi
tions which mean paramount impor
tance to the future crowtb of our town
nd community. Each citizen owes it
to himself to lend every assistance in
beloine to meet these conditions and
belo bring the change about.
Lakeview at Dresent is growing, ad.
vancing. better still it is nrosoering.
Yet. there are several things that
he needs things are necessary for
her future welfare. Lakeview has a
splendid representative body in her
officials. We have a good mavor. we
have a good council, but it is impossi
ble for this body to accomplish the best
results without the hearty support of
Lakeview is not an unhealthy town,
far from it. people here enjoy the best
of health uf anv place in the world.
At anv other place where no more pre
caution was taken toward sanitary con
ditions than here, it would be the meet
unheaitv clace in the world. Yet, this
is no reason wbv we should lav down
and cease to strive in bettering these
circumstnees. The forerunner of all
sanitation measures, beautifying ap
pearances and steD from the country
town to the voung citv is the adoction ! trouble arose over the fact that a stran
New regulations governing the appli
cation of women for oublie lands have
recently taken effect which for a time
will cause more or less trouble. In
1907 Congress Dassed an act under
which the citizenshio of the wife fol
lows that of the husband, and hence
when a woman makes aooiication. for
land it is necessary for her to state
whether married or unmarried. If
married it is also necessary for her to
give the date of her marriage, and if
married after March 1. 11)07. it is
necessary for her to state whether her
husband is native born. If naturalized,
or if the husband has declared his in
tention to become a citizen of the
United States, then the wife must
furnish a codv ot his papers. Unlv
recently has the Department out in
force these requirements, and hence
officers making out applications for
women are not laminar with the or
der. These reuuirements apolv to tim
ber and stone entries, as well as desert
land applications, homesteads or anv
other law under which title to public
land may be obtained.
The necessary information may De
funished in the form of an affidavit
which should accomoanv the applica
tion, and must Le sworn to before an
officer authorized to administer oaths

Created a Disturbance
T. B. Anderson, of Silver Lake, was
brought to the county seat Saturday
and lodged in iail. He bad been ar
rested and was convicted for committ
ing a disturbance and assault and bat
tery, and was fined bv the justice $20
and costs, which he failed to cav. IThe
Senator Jonathan Hourne. Jr.. han
addressed the following letter to each
County Clerk In Oregon :
It is now conceded even bv the bit
terest enemies of Popular Government.
that the Oregon System has come to
stay. Heretofore the friends of the
Ponular (Jovernment have been nun-
pelted to devote their energies to de
fending that system frun the attacks
of its enemies and have had little oo
portunitv to devote attention to the
task of improving the svstatm or per
fecting its operation. Now that the
opposition has been overcome. I am
writing to ask your opinion of a plan
which I believe will make the system
work more satisfactorily.
As vou know, our statutes require
that the Secretary of State shall mnil
to every registered voter certain nam
ohlets giving information regarding
candidates and measures to be voted
unon bv the people. Distribution of
these pamphlets and their careful read
ing bv the people, is a very important
feature of the svstem. and therefore,
early registration of voters is 'desir
able. I suggest that rountv officers, es
pecially county clerks and achool sup
erintendents, arrange with citizens of
all oarties in rural communities to
hold Good Government rallies in school
houses, at which meetings a Notary
Public or Justice of the Peace can be
present to till out registration blanks
for voters and send the same to the
county clerk. At such meetings mea
sures proposed for adontion bv the peo
ple could be discussed. Quite likely'
good feeling would be promoted bv not :
discussing candidates, on such occa- j
sions. but leaving tne discussion entire-:
Iv to measures. In mv opinion, the
Initiative and Referendum la of great i
value as an educational agency since it '
encourages voters to studv and discuss :
DuOlic Questions. j
These Good Government rallies in
country school houses would not only,
he a benefit socially, 'jut secure early!

It is the fixed policy of the forest
service to sell timber in forest reserva
tions at prices no lower than what is
asked for privately owned timber in
the same locality. The Government
will not sell anv of its timber at
bargain rates, not even over-rine tim
ber or that which has been killed bv
fi-e. Moreover the government is not
iisoooed to hasten the sale of its own
timber, preferring to hold it for future
use. when the supply of private timber
has become exhausted. This is the
attitude as outlined in the annual re
port of Forester (Jarves. Sales of
standing timber in California in 1911
amounted to 112.438.000 feet valued at
$2!)5.536, in Oregon. 134.245.000 feet,
valued at $332,212 and in Nevada 22.
