WINGFIELD AP POINTED SENATOR Nevada Governor Bestows to Former Lakevlew Boy Great Honor On June 12 in Caraon Citv, Nevada, Governor Oddie performed the final act of selecting George Wlngfleld aa sue ceaior to the late Senator Nixon. This sppaintnwnt of the Governor ia made until a auecessor ia elected and will or dinarily run from the present. time to the meeting of the legiiilature Imme diately after the tiling of the certificate Governor Uddie, in letting forth his reaaona for hi (election to thia honor ed poiition, paid eome moat glowing tribute to Mr. Wlngfleld, whose ex cuse for not accepting the appoint ment at the preaent time, ia clearly given in hi following letter to the Governor. The letter from Mr. Wlngfleld to Governor Oddie I aa follow : Reno. Nev., June 13, 1912. "lion. T. L. Oddie, Governor of the State of Nevada, Canon City, Ne vada. "My dear Governor Oddie: "I embrace thia early opportunity ot supplementing my verbal communica tion of last evening by recording a more formal acknowledgement of the receipt of the commission with which you have honored me by tendering me an appointment as a United State enator to till temporarily the vacancy caused by the demise of our valued friend, Senator Nixon. The honor thus conferred Is heightened by tbe very kindly and complimentary statement made, bv you in connection with the bestowal of the commission. "I trust that the degree or my ap preciiitlon of the honor and of your personal confidence will not bo que tioned when I ask that you shall per mit me to consider for a few days the feasibility and propriety, from my standpoint, of the acceptance of the appointment. I am loath to accept a public office without feeling assured of my ability to give it an attention, un trammeled by personal concerns, which the publla have a right to exact. It so happens that my businos entangle ment are many. Associates in busi ness, who in many cases are men of large affairs, have on the strength of their confidence in me, Invested heavily in enterprises with which I am Identi fied. I must respeot the obligations growirg out of such relationships, and meet U.om fairly, before consenting to entrust to other the active mana gement of business Interests for the successful outcome of which the friend have been looking to me. "Another phase of the question, which demands serious thought on my part, la the consideration as to whether I can aerve the state aa well in ofllcial capacity at Washington aa by private bualneaa activity within its borders. From the state of Nevada I have de rived much ot aucceas and material welfare, and I feel a deep sense of ob ligation to the atate of Nevada and it people. "If. after a careful aurvey of my affair, it appears to be possible for me to accept the eenatorsblp, I will do so, believe me, with a sense of reaponsl bility calling for the exercise of my best energlea In behalf of the state and its people. If, on tbe other hand, the possibility of acceptance under right conditions appears not to exist. I shall aak you to reconsider the matter and bestow the honor upon one who can bet ter aerve the commonwealth. "Very respectfully your," "GEO. WINGFIELD." That a young man, 35 years of age, would for 'me minute aerlously consid er the non-acceptance of an honor, the highest within the gift of a State, seems beyond the imagination, but that George Wlngeld is sincere in bis statements contained In the above let ter to Gov. Oddie cannot be doubted. A gentleman who ia very close to If r. Wingflell informs the Examiner that in a conversation with bim twodava after bia letter to the tiovrenor waa written, Mr. Wingfleld stated that it waa very doubtful if he accepted tbe appoint ment. . The people of Lake county feel proud of the suoetae and honors tbst have been attended one whose toy hood davs were pent among them, and they have bad many proof of tbe fact that we atlll retain a warm spot In his heart, and know that with Geo. Wlngfleld in the U. S. Senate, Southeastern Oregon would always nave a true and steadfast friend who could be relied uoon to pro tect cur interests and one who has tbe ability and influence to do so. It takes a big man to till a Senator ial Toga, but it it takea a bigger oie to refuae It. and whatever hi final de cision may ti In thia matter, Lake view will take off it hat with reapeet and pride to the boy who has proven himself worthy of our admiration. PAISLEY CASE TO BE INVESTIGATED Kuykendall Will Test Coroner Jury's Verdict In Frank Cannon Affair Klamath Herald: At the inquest presided over by Coroner Wallace yes terday at Lakeview, Frank Cannon, the sheepman, who shot and killed t be editor of the Chewaucan Preaa at Pais ley, Lake county, the jury exonerated the (layer of L. R. Jonee. District Attorney Kuykendall atated this afternoon, when informed ty the Herald that Cannon had been acquitt i'd, ao far as a coroner's jury could do so, of crime of murder, that he would Inveatigate into the matter. 'A coroner'a investigation." said Mr. Kuykendall, "ia preaumed to make in all cases a transcript of the testi mony it undertakes to hear. This 1 presume, was done in this case. Tbe reported exoneration ot Cannon carries with it simply a preliminray review of the case. There are some men puahed to extremities who will use the excuse for their criminal acts that their home has been wrecked, but since 1 have not received any tangible testimony of the actual nature of the trouble, I cannot say any more than that I will await it and be guided accordingly. But if a crime has been committed 1 will, so far as I can, prosecute the criminal to the last extremity, and see that pun' ishment is imposed."

AUTO CRIPPLER RUSYJLAST WEEK Reno Brewing- Company's Car Seriously Raided In Drews Valley An expert auto crippler got in his Compsny's work on the Reno Brewing Staver car last week. While making the trip from Kla math Falls last week, the machine became slightly disabled in Drews Val ley and tbe party was compelled to leave the car and come on to Lakeview. They stayed over night enroute and the next day when they returned to the scene with Mr. SoutbBtone. of the Lakeview Garage, the auto was found to be devoid of several parts, ind the tires punctured by haviing nails driven in (hem. The car was badly mutilated and damaged to tbe extent .ot several dollars. While it was not expected that we hsd anyone in the county who was mean enough to commitsuch a depreda tion, it would be wise to suggest to auto nwners and drivers that it la poor policy to leave a machine unguarded out on the road. An effort ia being made to bring the miscreant to justice, and in event that this is accomplished, it would be well to make an example of the puniahment as a prevention of any such future work. LOCAL MAN TAKES CONTRACTION R. R, Mr. Riddles Says Fernley Extension Is Officially Goose Lake Southern Contractor H. H.

ALTURAS WINS AT SUNDAY'S GAME Lakeview Ball Team Loos Ing Out In Score of 26 to Eight The Alturas ball team walloped tbe local nine to tbe tune of 26 to 8 at Sun day's game in Altures. Tbe local boys did all that was expected of them, ow ing to the fact that none of them had seen a base ball since Isst season. The game was so repelete with good playa and errors that it was not only amusing bet really interesting. Tbe fact that there waa eome good metsl in tbe lineup from Lakeview wasi clearly demonstrated. If tbey would apply a little more energy and good stiff practice there is no question but what they could put up a good game. The contest will be repeated on tbe local diamond next Sunday -when Al turas will send its delegation to Lake- view. It is to be hoped thst tbe boys will avail themselves of the opportuni ty to do some strenuous practicing be tween now and that time and thus enable themselvea to . make a little better showing at tbe next game. At a meeting of tbe Degree of Hon or, A.U. U.W., Mrs. John Arzner was elected to fill the office of Chief of Ceremonies, left vacant by the remov al to Corvallis of Mrs. Sam McKee. Mrs. X. Arzner was elected Assistant Usher. EXCURSION WAS A GLORIOUS TRIP Over 30O People Board N.-C.-O. Train and Pay Visit to Alturas On last Sunday morning two hundred and sixty-three of Lakeview's people packed business csres in the cold stor age tank and weighed their troubles on the ragman's scales. In other words, they declared the lid off and knocked the head out of the links barrel. The few who tried to ait stiff and not wrinkle their hard boiled shirts were soon pulled down off the pedestal of dignity, and during the entire Alturas excursion trip everybody made merry and enjoyed themselves. Urn-pah, um-pah, boom ta-ra. Could you teat it? Sure you could. It was the old bass drum on tne band car. The band was there. AH het up, greased, oiled, manicured, tuneful and melodious tearing great chunks of sound out nf the ether. And each mem ber had a thoroughly developed ambi tion to make music. The boys made good. The entire trip, train and surround ings were inspiring, wonderful, reveal ing, gigantic, glorious, bewildering, spectacular, imposing, keleldoscopic and well that's enough. At New Pin Creek th- ike view delegation waa joined by boosters for High Grade. A. Vow Ranch we took on fifteen good and at uavi ureek thirty-five mor. v About eleven o'clock the train dret up in tbe bustling little town of Alturas where ibeir bsnd was awaiting to serenade the enthusiastic crowd, as well as a large representative body of tbe Alturas citizens with auto, tusea, backboards and all sorts of convey aneea In which to osber the visitor to hotels. Tbeir courteous and hospitable treat ment surpassed expectations, and we had occasion to expect something good. Tbey bad ample facilities for accommo dations. The Alturaa band which waa assisted by some members of the Lake view band furnished music throughout the dsy. Sometimes the band bad aa many aa twenty-seven pieces and they provide excellent music. Tbe ball game in the afternoon afforded amusement for a few hours for tbo Lakeview erowd and many of the Alturas people. The ride around the lake is one of simple beauty. At this time of year, tbe track on one side is bounded by tbe beautiful waters and shore of the lake, while on tbe other stretching ap to the foothills of tbe Warner Range, is a solid msss of vegetation, both domes tic and wild. Aside from tbe two towns New Pine Creek and Davis C-eek, this strip is dotted with eozy farm booses, all of which bears the stamp of pros perity. To one familiar with the s sene, it marks but a passing notice, bat to anyone not familiar with tbe country it is worth their time and the expense to make tbe trip. Tbe only disappointment on the trip was tbe unexpected change in tbe sche dule for leaving on tbe return. Tbe advertised time to leave Alturas was five o'clock, but this was changed by Road Master Rice upon the solicitation of some of the Lakeview delegation, to 7:30. Tbe disappointment was not be cause tbe people did not want to stay in Alturas, but It was because so many had planned upon reaching Lakeview on specified time as tbey bad made ar rangements at this end. and also to make the ride through the beautiful Sunset valley in the evening before dark. As it was we reached Lakeview atout 10:30 instead of 7:30, all tired. but everybody bappy. AUTO ACCIDENT AT EAGLE POINT Fred Melsser's Machine Is Damaged and Passe n gers Get Slight Injuries Yesterday afternoon while making the return trip from New Pine Creek, a quite serious accident ocoured to the staee auto of r red Melsser and the four passengers, in coming around Eagle Point two miles south of town. In nearing tbe curve in the road around tbe point, a blow-out oecured in the tire on the front wheel on the lower side. Such an accident will naturally occasion a car to swerve, when going at a rapid gate, and Thomas Barton who was sitting in the backseat, seeing this became excited and grabbed the driver by the arms and exolaimed that be was going to run in tbe fence. His grip prevented tbe chauffeur from controlling his machine and, it was steered directly against a good sized bolder near the fence before the ear was stopped. Tbe stop was so sudden that the occupants were thrown out, excepting the driver and Mrs. Thomas Barton. Wm. Barton who waa also in the back seat, was thrown several feet into the air, and when he hit the ground he fell upon bis right arm, dia locating the wrist, joint. His injury j wss tbe most serious sustained. Guy Cauzey, who was in the trontseat with the driver, was thrown through the glass but received no serious injuries aside from a few scratches. Mr. Meisser atated that he waa driv ing at the rate of about twenty miles an hour when the accident oecured. and said that it could have been averted naa ne not been molested oy Mr. Barton, His car, which ia a Mit chell was damaged considerably but he said it could be repaired at a compara tively small cost. The greatest damage was done to the front axle which was badly twisted. Such an accident should be a warn ing to all driver to keep thoir ma chines absolutely under control in mak. ing tbe least precarious places. ALTURAS WILL VISIT US SUNDAY mlee to Send Up About . 0 . , jple In Return for La. view's Turn Out In return for tbe large delegation tbat attended Alturas last Sunday, Al turas bss signified ber intention to liberally reciprocate.
