Jail Fire Saturday
The Are belt rang Saturday noon,
just about 12:30, and a big crowd Im
mediately gathered about tbe City Jail
to assist in extinguishing the blaze
wherever it might be. They were not
obliged to go far, however, as the fire
waa in one of the cells and was caused
by a prisoner's bed having become; Ig
nited in some mysterious way. There
was a strong odor of smoke In the air,
but no damage waa done except to the
mattress in the cell. The prisoner ap
peared to be none the worse for his
experience, although be stood a good
chance of being smothered had it not
been for the prompt arrival of Day
Marshal Bemis, who let bim and tbe
smoke out simultaneously.

"In reply 1 would atate that I be
lieve you will find the people of Lake
view, and especially the Commercial
club, will be ready to do all within
tneir power to make aucb a trip pleas
ant at any time.
"However now that It Is hardly
practicable for you to make the trip
until after the Fourth, I believe that
you will find the trio filled with plea
sure and some profit if you postpone
ssme until the time of the annual meet
of the Central Oregon Development
league, Auguat 20, 21. and 22. Youra
very respectfully, E. D. EVERETT,
The matter of the excursion will be
taken up at the nexi meeting of the

While Independence Dav waa this
year left unobserved In Lakeview, our
neighboring towns provided aufllctent
amusement for all visiting delegationa

Rev. O. T. Morgan Takes
Charge of Local Church
Creates Impression
Inland Town Will Provide
Talent For League Meet
In Lakeview
Rev, O. T. Morgan, Ph. D., the new
pastor of the Presbyterian Church, ar
rived in Lakeview Saturday by way of
Klamath from the Rogue River Val
ley. He preached bis introductory ser
mons to good audiencee Sunday. From
the reporta tbat come to ua concerning
the aermons, it seems tbat a new boost
er has come to our city. Dr. Morgan
disclaimed any intention ot trying to
build up merely a aect or religious
sooiety, but declared that be wished
to be counted in on any effort to bet
ter tbe educational and business con
ditions of the city, aa well aa tbe re
ligious. The people of the church were
much pleased with these opening ser
Dr. Morgan ia a man in the prime of
life and cornea to ua enriched by much
experience and a thorough education.
He spent a year in graduate work in
John Hopkina University and holda the
degrne of Doctor of Philosophy from
the University of Cbioago. He taught
Greek and Hebrew for ten yeara in
Drake University, Des Moines, la., ana
also correspondence Hebrew in the
University of Chicago. He baa also
held pastorates in Illinois and Cailfor
Dr. Morgan's family ia atill in Rogue
river valley and be will not bring them
here at present. He expresses himself
as much plessed with this city and val
ley and we hope further acquaintances
will strengthen that good opinion.
V. L. Snelling, who recently re
turned from a trip to Burns, Informs
ua tbat a largo delegation will come
from that place to participate ia tbe
meeting of the Central Oregon De
velopment League bere next month,
He said tbey were going to bring over
all tbe available talent of tbe town to
take part in tbe doings, and that tbey
were contemplating hiring a big auto
truck to bring over tbe band. Tbia
will be a jnv somewhat unexpected
but nevertheless bfgbly appreciated
by our people.
He aald the only bad feature about
tbe trip was the unpardonable condi
tion ef tbe road In places across the
country between Lakeview and Buroa.
lie aaya thla can be greatly eliminated
by tbe meana of a comparatively
small amount of work and at a normal
coat. He aays tbe people of Harney
county have offered to prosecute tbe
work of leveling down tbe roads if
tbey were provided with a road
This is a circumstance 'that ia an
pleaaant, as we do not want any ob-
staclca to atand in tbe way of large
delegations visiting us upon this occa
Thla road Is soffleieutly travelled

tbe county, in order to place it in a
auitable condition for utility. It is to

Will Visit Burns
Burns Times-Herald : According to
plana outlined In Sunday's Oregonlan
Secretary Chapman of the Portland
Commercial Clut la arranging to show
Portlsnd delegates to the Lakeview
meeting of the Central Oregon De
velopment League interior Oregon
right. He bas arranged three different
routes by wh'ch the Portland people
may reach Bend then ho has planned
a route tbat will bring the entirn dele
gation over to Burns where they will
spend one night. From here they go
by way of Narrowa and the P. Ranch
to Lakeview, going through .Callow
Branch for Parisian
Through an advertisement in the
Examiner, thia week a deal waa closed
between Dick Kingsley and J. Chaa.
Smith.of the Parisian Millinery, where
the former oonveyed to Mr. Smith a
lot in the Kingsley addition to New
Pine Creea for the consideration of the
latter establishing a branch millinery
and ladiea furnishing store on the pro
perty. A building will be constructed Im
mediately in which to bouse the new
business and after tbe return of Mra.
Smith from Chicago, where she goes
to purcbsse their fall line of goods, a
complete stock will be installed. Tbe
business will be conducted in conjunc
tion with tbeir Lakeview store and
Mr. Smith will handle the branch.
The next rumored move in nearby
railroads circles is the statement ot
proposed construction on tbe Central
Oregon and Eastern railroad from Me
tolioua to Bend, by way of Prinevilie,
a distance of about thirty miles, it is
said that articles of incorporation have
been filed and the steel for tbe work
bas been ordered for delivery October
15. One hundred thousand dollara of
the stock was subscribed in Prinevilie,
while the remainoer will come trom
St. Louis.
It is begining to look as though too
many railroads are beading thia way
for us not to get one of tbem. It is
not reasonable that Bend would be con
tinued the terminal of both thia new
extension and the Oregon Trunk, which
built to'that town last year, 'lbey will
of course connect with the Oregon
Eastern, probably near Fort Rock, and
with a further extension to join the
N.-C.-O. Ry. at Lakeview. would
make a railroad net that would tap one
of the richest sections of Central and
Southern Oregon, and one tbat bas only
been waiting for steel rail, connection
with out side points.
Johnson Easy Winner
Owing tor tbe walk-over tbat Jack
Johnson had in the fistic contest with
Jim Flynn on July 4, at Las Vegss, N.
M., the state polio stepped in and
stopped tbe Bght during the ninth
ound. Little interest was msnifested
in the bout because of the one-aided
rostch between the fighters, and the
crowd left the ringside disgusted. Tbe
scrap was decidedly in favor of tbe
tig amoke from trie word go, and it is
atated tbat he was capable of putting
Flynn out at any time he wished.
Johnson returned to Chicago and ia
quoted aa having said : "1 will meet
Palzer or any other before Labor Dav,
then I will retire, sure." Palzer ia a
heavyweight and classed among the
leaders of tbe dsy. It is to be hoped
thst he or anybody else will be able to
wrench the laurela of tbe world'a
heavyweight championship from this
tig, burly Negro as he. regardless of
his righting abilities, has placed a
damper on the once popular sport.

Kansas, pitching a gilt-edged game and
Hov, of California, behind the bat.
and both being given gingery aopport.
the local diamond Sunday wss the scene
of one of the best base ball gamea
ever pulled off in thia section, when
Lakeview crossed bats with tbe Rose-
ville team of California.
Tbe first inning Roseville went to
the bat and aucceeded in capturing two
runs; but with this they had to be sat
isfied until near the finish of the game.
Lakeview did not succeed in getting
a run for several innlnes, when they
finally copped two which made the con
test even tor some time. Tbe next tal
ly waa made by the local nine and gave
them tbe lead. When Roseville went
to the bat in the first half of the ninth
inning tbe game was a tie, but they
grabbed one more during tbat valuable
time and kept Lakeview from making
any more when they came up. Thia
gave a final score of 4 to 3 in favor of
the visitors. The game all the way
through until the last belonged to no
body and much interest was manifested
by tbe audience. The band, which was
seated in the grand stand, discoursed
music during the amusement.
Mr. Clark the pitcher, who haa re
cently located with us, bad not pitched
aball tor six months, was slightly out
of trim, but all tbe way through, play
ed a good clean game and deserved
considerable credit for the manner in
wbiob tbe game was played. The
catcher plaved a fast game and waa en
tbusisstic to do all tbe work and dur
ing his clever maneuvers no errors
were noticeable.
Tbe Roseville boya displayed good
courage and were a very generous lot.
