Contract Let for Comple
tion of Oregon Eastern
Across the State
One of the most imtxrtant railroad
contracts ever made as far as North
ern Lake Count? it concerned was re
cently signed bv the Oreeon Eastern
Railway with Kiloatrick Brothers, the
well known railroad contractors, for
the completion of the Oreeon Eastern
from Lake Odell or Crescent Post
Office in Northern Klamath County.

the end of that valley, thence throueh of the reSu,ar biennial nominating
he north end of Horse Mountain Val- election, "ball be enforced and effected
ley into Edith Valley, from whence it
will enter Harnev county. The con
tract signed bv Kiloatrick Bros, will
give them the lareest iob ot railroad
construction in the United States at
present as they have the contract to
Davs Mountain in Hrnev county where
their work will meet that being done
bv the Utah Construction Company of
Ogdp.n. who have the contract from
Vale to Davs Mountain. The import
ance of the contract to Lake countv can
be appreciated when it is known that
it will open to transportation directly
with the outside world, an area til ful
ly 600.000 acres of lands that are till
able and adaoted to everv form of
agriculture peculiar to this fertile part
ef the country. The valleys mention
ed until recently were the fartherest
from railroad transportation of any
section of Orceon. but the Oreeon
Trunk being completed to Bend has
brouebt them nearer to the railroad,
and now that the N.-C.-O. Railway is
at Lakeview, thev are in a position
where the manv settlers of that por
tion of the county can be assured of
transportation within the next year or
eo. There are several irrieation pro
jects planned for this part of the
countv. the largest of which is the
Lake Odell Project, which would water
something like 400.000 acres of lands
lvine in theee vallove. thn Silver Lake
Project will also water about thirty
thousand acres, while all of this area
has sufficient rainfall to insure produc
tive croos with the ordinary tillaee. to
sav nothing of "Dry Farming." One
fine feature of the settlement of these
vallevs is that they are close to an
abundance of fuel, good water, school,
stores and manv other evidences of
value. Most of the lands in them can
be taken under the 160 or 320 acre
homestead acts or the desert act and
will prove profitable in either case to
the man who acts quickly and secures
bis land now that a railroad through
them is assured.

Three Periods This Year,
But Little Interest
Thus Far Shown
Owiner to the presidential election
occurin? in 1912. there will be three
registration periods this vear. The
following, contained in Chanter 5.
Section 2 of the 1911 Session laws of
Oreeon. is self explanatory of this con
dition :
"In the vears when a president and
vice-president of the United States are
to be elected, said Dnmarv nominating
election shall be held on the fortv-fiftb
day before the first Monday in June of
"id year: ,nd " l8WS ""t.inin to

date of the regular election from the

day after the first Monday in Novem
ber." j According to the memorandum of
i Election Dates and Laws prepared bv
I the Secretary of the State. Count v
Clerks are authorized to open registra
tion books January '2 and to continue
ooen until April 9, after which time
thev are closed until April 24. this
closed period allowing for the primary
election which will be held on Friday.
'April 19. The books are opened for
registration from April 24 until May 15.
as described in above quotation. The
books are reopened June 4 and continue
so until Oct. 20. before tbe general
election which is set for the 5th day of
November or the first Tuesday after
the first Monday in the month.
While the registration periods are
comparatively long it behooves everv
prospective voter to register at his first
GPLortunitv as this is necessary before
one is entitled to vote at either elec
tion or to sign a candidate's petition,
j Registrations have been somewhat
slow this far. County Cleric Pavne

to Monday of this week.
Trouble For Burns
The County Court of Harnev has
levied a special tax of three mills for
court house purposes, which act seems
to have aroused the ire of certain tax
pavers. They concede the needs of h
new court house but are of the opinion
that its construction should be delayed
until it is known "where the railroad
is eoine." Burns wanta to take time
bv the forelock and cinch its hold on
the countv seat regardleas of where
the railroad may strike, which it is
generally supposed will be some dis
tance trom that town.
"The Quality Store" g
That the literature to advertise Lake
countv which is to be gotten out bv
the Lakeview Commercial Cluli will
meet with success is assured bv the
promised support of neighboring
towns and commercial organizations.
Secretary Everett has mailed letters
to all neighboring towns ot the countv
and has received word from Silver
Luke to the etTeet that their commer
cial club would P eoge S150 and possibly
more. Return from Valley Falls show
that thev have raised t"5 uo to date.
New Pine Creek has sent in S2f with a
promise of more and Paisley has voiced
her approval of the matter but has not

nut include all the places to be heard
from, and no doubt when all the re
turns have been received it will leave
only a reasonable sum for Lakeview
to subscribe. It would be a great favor
to the secretary of the Lakeview Com
mercial Club if outside places would
advise him their pleasure regarding
this literature.
There is no question about the advan
tage of this nature of advertising over
anv other method as an attractive
booklet renlete with photographs and
short descriptions will command atten
tion, where circular letters and news
paper advertising will not. Lake
oountv is sorely in need of advertis
ing literature containing a con
servative description of the re
sources and possibilities, as everv in
quiry received about this country con
tains a request for literature of this
sort. The results will be obvious and
we hope the Commercia
meet with everv success
this demand.
Plans Are Well Under Way
For Protection Against
Fire In City
Much interest is being taken in the
local fire brigade which is now being
organized. Thirty-eight memters have
signed the petition and the prospect
of several more are in view. The pe
tition will be submitted to the town
council at the next meeting. This body
has already expressed their enthusiasm
in the matter and the petition will no
doubt receive their hearty support.
It is the intention of the promoters of
this laudatle move to ask nothing of
the town other than necessary appara
tus with which to work, nbout three
departments will be organized and
much time will be devoted to drill
practice. The organization wiil be
effected on a club basis and will have
social functions in connection and n
this way public entertainments or
dances can be given which will have a
tendency to keep interest alive and as
sure success of the undertaking. Drills
of the department will be executed at
which it could be arranged to offer a
prize to the division making the Pest
A fire department is a necessary ad
junct to the town of Lakeview and
each citizen owes to himself to give it
everv possible encouragement.

Damage Suit of Porters
Against Goo. Small
Is Dismissed
George H. Small, tho pioneer resi
dent of Northern Lnke County, was
surcersful In a decision of the Supreme
Court handed down on the 23rd Uv of
January. In the two cases of Wesley.
Porter et al. vs. George II. Small and
John C Porter vs. George H. Small,
conv of the opinion in the cases having
iut been received bv W. Lair Thomu
son. attorney for Kir. Small, and thus
ends the first echo of the now famous
litigstion over the waters of Silver
Creek, which is known among the le
gal fraternity as the cane of Hough vs.
Porter. In that case the Circuit Court
for Lake countv decreed to Mr. Small
a prior right to use six hundred and
fifty inches of the water ot Silver
Creek. The heirs of S. A. D. Porter,
deceased, and John C. Porter bv his
I guardian appealed the water suit to the
Supreme Court where the case re
mained for nearly six veara before a
decision was reached, the Supreme
Court then awarding the Purlers a
prior right over Mr. Small and limiting
the water that Small was entitled to
considerable less than six hun 'red
and fifty, inches. Something over a
vear ago the Porters filed two separate
actions against Small for dnmnees ag
gregating $00,000 for having used the
waters of Silver Creek under the de
cree of the lower court until re vernal
thereof bv tho Supreme Court. In the
Circuit Court Mr. Smail'a counsel con
tended that an action for damages
would not lie against a man who did
nothing more than follow the decree of
the Court and Judge Noland so du-
bodies will cided. The Porters appealed to the
in supplying Supreme Court and the case was argu
ed before Oregon's highest judicial
tribunal on the 4th (lav ot January
when Mr. Thompson was in Salem.
The judgment thus handed down bv
the Supreme Court sustains the deci
sion of the Circuit Court for Lake
countv in everv particular, which will
doubtless end the unseeminglv inter
minable litigation over Silver Creek.
Mr. Small is at present in Caifornia.

Fine If Car Has Not
a Green Tag
Out of about forty automobiles in
Lakeview up to January 20. but nine
machines have been registered with
Secretary of State Ben W. Olcott.
Preparatory to sending out the lists of
automobiles registered to all the countv
clerks of the state Secretary of State
Olcott is having conies printed which
will be forwarded immediately after
February 1. The entire registration is
sent to each countv clerk to be used
for readv reference in identifying vio
lators of the auto laws and tor other
purposes. Apparently there are some
automobile owner in this who
are subject to arrett and fine because
of non-renewal of their license for the
opening of the present vear. This vear
the color of the tags are green with
black letters for the state and anv
other color or design can bo put down
as bogus. In regard to the enforce
ment of the automobile law of this
state. Secretary Olcott savs:
"The enforcement of the provisions
of the law are vested in the police
officer of anv citv. anv marshal, denutv
marshal or watchman of anv incorpor
ated village, or anv sheriff of anv
countv. or anv constable of anv town
ship, have full power and authority
within the limits of their jurisdiction
to arrest anv person known to rfhen
officer to have violated anv provisions
of the law. and to immediately bring
such offender before anv magistrate
naving lunsuiction as provided in sec
tion 27. All police judgcB or recorders
of any citv or town, or iuHtice of the
peace of the eojntv shall have juris
diction of all violations excepting those
mentioned in section 24. as provided in
section 26.
"Inasmuch, therefore, as the office
of the secretacry of state is not vested
with polioe powers you will readily un
derstand that it is without the provi
sion of that official, or his official fami
ly, to preform other than such duties as
mav be required of him under the pro
visions of this act.
'"All violations of the law should be
promptly reported to the police officers
of vour city whouedutv it is to arrest
the violators and bring them before a
magistrate having iurisdiction under
provisions of this act."
