GOVERNOR WEST OUSTS OFFICIALS Makes Bit; Slash In Cost Of Maintenance Of Penitentiary Salem Statesman : One of the moat sweeping changca ever put into effect by a governor of tbia atate in the mid die of hla term ot oflioe, became opera tive on Wednesday of last week, when Superintendent Jamea of the state penitentiary and the heads ot several other departments were auspended, and one head officially discharged by Gover ' nor.West. The suspensions are effec tive until after Januarly, 1913, and were made for tbe purpose of "re trenchment" and "economy" in order to prevent a deficiency in the appro priation for the institution. Thi officials affected, exclusive of Mr. James are: Patrol Officer Bauer, Mra. Curtis, matron of the woman's department, and Rev. Father Moore of St. Joseph's church, one of the chaplains. The other chaplain was Mr. Bauer, who officiated in addition to his position as patrol officer, and as ' chaplaiYi he is also auspended. W. 11. White, head farmer, is relieved of fur their duty, while Chief Engineer La beree will act in the double capacity of engineer and superintendent of new cells In the state prison. According to elatementa made yesterday outside the governor's office, the appropriation for the Drat year waa over expended by aeveral thousand dollar, and the aam authority held Governor Went to blame for It. The aalariea which the euspended officials had received from the atate were: Mr. Bauer, S75 a month aa pa role officer and 125 month aa chap lain: Mra. Curtis. HO a month aa mat ron: Kev. Father Moore, $25 a month Superintendent Jamea, $2000 a year, the atate alao furnliihlng him a cottage free of rent and provialona necessary for bimseif and family. Mr. White received 175 a month, while Engineer Laberre recelevea $100 a month. Warden Curtia will officiate aa auperin tendent In Mr. Jamea' place, holding, however, the title of warden, and do ing a wardon'a duty aa well aa that of superintendent.

DATES FOR WOOL SALEARE NAMED Second Annual Sale Will Be Held In Lakevlew On July 22 The second annual sale ot Lake County wool will be held in Lakeview July 22, thjat date having been fixed by the Wool Growera Association ao aa not to conflict with datea already fixed at other placea throughout the State. The success attending the aale held here last year will no doubt reault In larger offering on the part of the sheepmen at the forthcoming aale in- j asmuch as the prices received last yesr were all the market oould atand, aa was evidenced by the results on some of the shipments that were made by partiea who did not accept tbe price offered at the sale. The reanlta were practically the same, no matter whe ther the wool was sold here or shipped on consignment, thus attesting the fact that there waa no collusion among the buyera and that they paid the top price. A Prineville dispatch of last Friday says that datea for the Eastern Oregon wool aalea have been fixed by the State Wool growers' Association by the varioua county aasociationa and by the wool buyera. These dates conflict in aome respects . but the differences will probably be adiuated in a few daya. The following list of datea, are ar ranged by the buyera : Echo, May 29. Pendleton, May 30. Pilot Kock, June 3. Ileppner, June 4. Baker, June 8. Ontario, June 10. Vale, June 11. Shaniko, June 18. Metoliua, June 21. Bend, June 22. Joaeph, June 25. Enterprise, June 26. Shaniko, July 6. Baker, July 16. Several large sales of wool have been made during the past week, the total beina about a quarter of a million pounda. Frank E. Rickey, representing tbe Eisemana of Boston, ia the man who put the deala through, he having purchased the clips of S. B. Chandler, W. K. McCormick, J. C. Shellhammer, Dan Graf and F. A. FiUpatrick. He arrived In Lakevlew last evening and it is understood that he ia about to close deala with other sheepmen. He la said to be paying an average of 14) cents. The warm daya of the past week have caused the enow in the mountains to commence melting, and aa a conse quence the streams are now pouring their muddy contents into the lake. Both Deadman and Bullard creeka are very muddy, Indicating that the snow la melting raoidly on the divide be tween here and Camaa Prairie. POSTOFFICE NOTICE SERVED TO VACATE PRES ENT QUARTERS BY JULY Vast Amount Of Business Handled Through Office And Clerical Assistance Inade ' quate To Take Care Of Work It would appear that local postal affairs are rapidly ncaring a crisis, in asmuch aa notice haa been served to vacate the ureanet quartera by July 1. The Department seems loth to make any change where an Increase in rent is roccssary. and unless the situstion changes a very material advance in the present cost will no doubt result. The business of the office is rapidly in creasing, it being practically double now to what it waa when Postmaster Ablstrom took charge some two years ago. In order to properly perform tbe dutiea of hla office Mr. Ablstrom finds it necessary to violate the 8-buur pro vision in regard to working hours, but be avoids the penalty therefor ly working two eight-hour ahlfts daily and them aome. It not infrequently occurs that his office force puts in 18 hours working-time in one day, as it is necesaarv to commence diatributing the mail at 4 o'clock in the morning in order that patrons of tbe office can be properly accommodated. To handle the money order business and delivery of mai la two persona are necessarily on duty the greater part of the day, and then It being necessary to receive the mail on the arrival of the train makes the full allotted two eigl. t-hour shifts all too ahorr, especially when tbe train happena to be late. In order to gain an insight into the work of the office It ia only necessary to stste that during the quarter ending SOME INTERESTING FEATSPROMISED Eiks Will Exhibit Some Of Latest -Stunts in The Dancing Line The Elks' dance Friday night of next week promises to be a recherche event, at leaat that la the word Vince Snell ing uses in attempting to give a gen eral dsecrlption of it. An effort is be ing msde to have Jim Heryford give an exhibition of tbe "Turkey Trot," while H. II. Riddles la said to be an expert In the "Grizzly Bear." One of the latest dances is the "Jelly Wob ble," and Pete Grob will orobably ahow his many admirers how it s per formed. However, Dick Richsrdson is likely to prove a close second to Mr. Grob, aa it la aaid that he has the "wobble" part down to perfection. i The membera of the order are leav ing nothing undone that will in anyway assist in making the event a success, while the decorationa will be something out of the ordinary. COUNTY COURT HAS A BUSYSESSION Many Petitions Were Pre sented to Official Body for Consideration The County Court baa been in busi ness up to "its neck" during the past week, and with the consideration of road petitiona and other incidentals the members of the Court are of the opin ion that the laborer is certainly worthy of hia hire. The road petitions were perhapa the most disagreeable part of the work, as the Court found it neces sary to dismiss the petition of E. L. H. Meyer and others for the establishment of a road leading from Valley Falls to an intersection with the Paisley road, and also reiected part of the road re-' Continued ou Pnjre Kijjht WILL ME March 31, there were issued 3912 money orders while 1189 were cssbed during the same length of time. In addition to that there were many reglatered packagea handled, the total for tbe year being 7590, counting all that were dis patched, received and passing through tbe office. Any one not iamiliar with tha vast amount of bookkeeping in con nection therewith, including reports, etc., haa no idea of the great amount of work uecessary in connection there with. And not only that, but tbe Post al Savings Bank alao requires more or less time, and taken altogether tbe life of the Postmaster cannot be termed a happy one.

Tbe Company ia coming to Lakeview by way of Paisley, after having finished an engagement at that place. It ia said tbe troupe is composed of eight membera and Mr. Meade ia sti! associated with the cast Mr. Thomp son, who for many years has traveled with the Ilea Company, is not with them thia season. Some changes have been made in the makeuo of the com pany ainoe last seen in Lakeview, and the publio ia promised aome of the lat est attractions in the theatre line at the opera house during the engagement of this popular company MRS. SIB HARDER TAKEN TO SALEM Supt. Stelner Came Here to Accompany Patient to State Asylum Dr. R. E. Lee Steiner, accompanied by an attendant from the State Hospi tal, arrived in Lakevlew Saturday evening for the purpose of accompany ing Mra. Sib Harberto that institution. Tbe doctor ia an old-time friend of Mra. Harbor's and be considered it a special privilege to be able to render her every assistance possible in her hour of need. Incidentaly it might be added that Dr. Steiner met with a hearty greet ing from hia host of friends here in Lakeview. Some six or eight years ago he waa a practicing physician here, made and dined during bta stay a no compelled to leave without t. nearly all bia engagements. The docto. Is now superintendent of the Stste Hospital for tbe Insane, which position he has filled for several yea re with credit alike to tbe State and himself. He started on bia return Monday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Claude Seager laat evening returned from California with the intention of again making Lake view their home. They came by auto and were accompanied on tbe trip by Mrs. Edward Mason of Sacramento and Norman Lombard of San Francis co. Mrs. Mason ia tbe wife of tbe su perintendent of the Western Pacifio and Mr. Lombard ia a repreentative of tbe Lombard Inveatment Co. Both Mra. Mason and Mr. Lombard atarted on tbeir return home tbia morning. New Pine Creek ia now deairioua of becoming' an incorporated town, and tbia week the Coantv Court wallad a epecial election for June 1 to enable tbe voters of tbe proposed town to de cide tbe momentous question. There is searcely'a doubt but what tbe town will incorporate, and then tbe question that will doubtless bob up ia wehtberit eball be wet or dry. Under tbe recent influx of atrangea it ia generally sup posed that the wets will easily win out, and hence tbe drys. are already planing aa to bow they can defeat tbe wet element. CURRIER NARROWLY ESCAPES FLAMES Fire Consumed Hay Stack Of Geo. Jones Near Paisley W. A. Currier, of Paisley, came near meeting with a serious accident Tues day while engaged in cleaning up some rubbisn ana tules on the Geo. M. Jones place near Paisley. He baa tbe place leased and ws burning the rubbish, when tbe wind changed and the fire was directed towards a haystack. Mr. Cur rier considered himself aomewbat of a fireman and started in to save tbe bay. If reports are true be made not only miserable failure in attempting to stop the fire but came near loosing hia life as well. For a time be was hemmed in by tbe flames and received a number of serious and palntul bcrna before be waa able to make hia escape. The stack of bay was destroyed, and aome other damages resulted. Mr. Currier had on a pair of rubber boots and tbey be came ao hot that he jumped into a ditch, and the result was somewhat un expected. The water forced the heat to tbe inside of the boot, causing in tense suffering on tbe part of the wear er before they oould be removed. Inasmuch as the Winter has been mild and besides having sold his cattle last year, Mr. Jonea will not feel the loss of bis bsy to any great extent, although it is not likely that be cares to have the practice of burning up bis nay con tinued. Only a few weeks ago Chef Fitzpatrick of tbe ZX ranch let a fire get away from him and cross into Mr. Jones' field, resulting in tbe .loss of a atack of hay, and if this thing ia to continue indefinitely Mr. Jonea is like ly to want to move his ranch into some other neighborhood. Much Travel On N.-C-0. Travel is very heavy on the N.-C.-O. at present, both Incoming and outgoing trains csrrylng many passengers. And not only is such tbe case here at Lake- view, but the same ia true of all the eta-' tions along tbe line, in a way accounted inis perhapa is I for by the ex-1 cellent service, for men who have rid den over the numeroua narrow guage railroads of the West, will tell you that the N.-C -O. ia in the front ranka in point of time, service and equip ment. The daily train consists of a baggage car. smoker, day coach and Pullman sleeper, with buffet diring service. The meals are excellent and served at prices lower than the aame service on the main lines. The ladies of tbe Cathnlio Altar Society met this afternoon at the home of Mrs. C, C. Lofftus.

PREPARING 4P TO FINISH WORK Holdings Mortgaged To Raise Necessary Funds For Purpose One more chapter in tbe O. V.L. work waa completed tbia week, when tbe Gooae Lake Valley Irrigation Co., suc cessors In the interest to the O.V.L. Co., bad placed on record in tbe Coun ty Clerk 'a office a blanket mortgage for tbe aum of $2,000,000. Tbe mortgage ia drawn in favor of Thorpe Bros., a firm of Minnespolia capitalists, who will probably float the mortgage with other capitalists. The document is quite, voluminous. . covering 63 pages of typewritten manu script, tbe filing fee for which was S39. Included in the mortgage are the Drews dam and reservoir aite, the Cotton wood reservoir site, canals, ditches, ete., besides considerable acreage prop erty etill held by the company, in fact about everything the company is sap posed to be possessed of in this neck of tbe woods. When tbe money is received on tbe mortsgsge it will doubtless be used in completing tbe system, when a large acreage will be susceptible of irrigation, all of which ia now in pri vate ownership. COUNCIL POSTPONES NEW CITYCHARTER No Action Will Be Taken Until Regular Election Next November The proposition of a new charter baa been abandoned by tbe Council owing to the question as to whether such ac tion can be taken at other than a regu- lar election. An amendment to the Charter was therefore passed in lieu of such action, and under its provisions a b'onded sewer indebtedness of $75,000 is provided for. As tbe matter now stands a special election will doubtless be called to vote on the bonding proposition, which will be held in tbe manner provided by law. At any time witbin 30 days before tbe election arguments either for or against tbe proposed bond issue mav be filed with the recorder, and after the 30 daya and at least 8 dava before tbe election takea olace pamphlets containing the proposed bonding ordinance, together with tbe arguments for and against it, will be printed and generally circulat ed, thua affording voters informstion concerning tbe same. Tbe Council will meet tonight when tbe time for hold ing the election will doubtless be deter- . mined. DEPOSITS GOOD FORJLS.
