have it that everything waa wide ooen
and the report reaching Sheriff Snlder'a
eara he derided to verify the aame. He
thereupon Instructed Deputies RIne
hart and Arthur to go in and purchase
drink, which they did, the Sheriff
himelf performing the aame feat.
They experienced no dillicultyin obtain
ing the liquor, and there upon the ar
reita were mada.
It had been the general opinion that
the law ha been violated without com
punction at New Pine Creek for tome
time pact, and Sheriff Snider baa re
eieved numeroua anonomou lettera to
that effect. However none of the peo
ple of the town were willing to make
affidavit that aucb waa the eai'e, and
not until Thurdy were the officer
able to get aatiafactory proof. After
the evidence waa obtained the arrest

Deceased had been confined to her

fore her death there seemed to be a
marked change for the better, but as
so often happena when death la at the

Numerous Qeese and Duck
Reported to Be Coming
on Lake
Sportsmen of Lake county will have
aome of the beat shooing thla season
in aeveral vears accord irg to reports
regarding the number of geese and
ducka that are now coming in. Tbe
aage chicken shooting this year baa
been good and blrda quite plentiful
Those wbo have bad occasion to
visit the lako and tributary slough aay
that' tbe ducka are very numeroua,
aome of which are yet too young to
fly. Tbey ehould be passed op by tbe
true BDortsman. . Some people go out
shooting with the idea that it ia per
fectly proper to kill every bird powsi
ble regardless of whether or not they
are able to uae them. Thla ia a serious
mistake, especially wben the season
Bret open aa the bird are then gentle
and can be slaugthered by the unscrup
ulous hunter. Duck and goose shoot
ing in this county will no doubt remain
first class for several years but . in or
oer to conaerve the aupply they should
be more or less protected and sports
men guard against their malicious
A bad effect in our game lawa ia that
the goose seasons open September 1,
while it ia not lawful to shoot ducka
until September 15. These birds prac
tically haunt the aame territory and
while bunting geese one ia quite likely
to see ducka. Thia la realty a tempta
tion to violate the game lawa, however,
it should not be done aa there are num
erous ducks too young to fly, and to
take advantage Of thia would be a step
toward tbelr extermination.
Burden of Support to Be
Lifted from Bill Hanley's
"ihe Officials of the four counties,
Crook, Harney, Klamath and Lake,
comprising tnia diBtrlct, met yesterday
afternoon and decided to advance ne
cessary funds to continue the work of
the Development League. Heretofore
President Wm. Hanley haa dug; up no
inconsiderable amount necessary to
promote the work from hia own pocket,
and inasmuch as it waa wholly volun
tary on hia part and there was no tell
ing when he would becsmd weary of ao
doing, it was considered advlaatle to
put the finances of the League on a solid
financial basis, there waa no hesitancy
on the part of anyone to the plan, and
it is likely that each county will ap
propriate $1000 to the object.

It ia too early to secure matured fruit

a fine method for getting our produce

Taken Amidst a Blaze
of Glory
The Development League e I o a d
Thursday evening a blaze of glory, aa it
were, all of tbe speaker being at tbeir
best. Tbe subject waa "Good Roads,"
and tbe need and advantgea of the aame
were set fourth in forceful word,
the discussion wa opened by County
Judge Warden and ex-county Judge
Baldwin of Klamath, and the latter
waa followed in turn by County Judge
Ellia of Crook and Judge Daly of
Lake.' Judge Worden stated that bis
County bsd already graded 60 miles of
road this year, cleaned '.he rocks and
high centers, bumps and the like for
200 miles more, while Judge Ellia told
bow bla county had been compelled to
build aeveral expensive bridge accrou
the Deechutea and tbe Crooked River,
and hence was unable to expend much
on roads. Klamath County ia evidently
expending vast sums on ber bighwaya.
Inasmuch as a roadbed SO feet wide ia
ber atandard, with steel culverts and
crushed rock surface in many instancea.
Judge Baldwin waa of reminiscent
turn of mind, and related some of tbe

Organization Will Urge
Development of Central
and Southern Oregon
The second session of the Central
Ureogn Development League that cloa-1
ed here last week was. frought with
unlimited importance to tbe people of
Southern and Central Oregon. Tbe
leaeue haa for its object the settlement
and development of this section of
Oregon and it adapted resolutions that
will insure this development.
That it means much to the people of
thia section of the state ia patent on
its face. We should not loose sight of
the fact that the settlement of this
country will mean much to the people
of the whole eountry, because it will
furnish homes for many who are now
living on rented land and do not know
the peaf e that comes with the posses
sion of one'a own aorea and because it
will increase the number of producing
acres in the United States and thus
have a tendency to lower food prices.
Nowhere in the whole United btates
is there such a great body of undevel
oped land of aucb richness, says the
Klamath Northwestern in an editorial
on this Bection.
Great areas of the Southern Oregon
country are veritable Gardens of Eden
with Btreama and valleys and wooded
mountains of such beauty that a poet's
harp were needed to sing of their glor
ies. And yet this country is barely
scratched by settlement. When the
people of the East and Middle West
awaken to tbe fortunes that await
them in Southern Oregon, there will be
no more rushing to Canada and no more
languishing back borne wishing for

Tbe representation SDeecb waa made
by President Hanley, and he took oc
casion to say that on hia trio last Win
ter through the Eastern and middle
Statea on tbe "Governor's Special"
that in no instance were the exhibits
superior to those be saw here in Lake
view. That Crooked Creek should have the
Dest display was much of surprise, for
it was tbe general supposition that that
part of tbe County waa most adapted to
stock than to agricultural purposes.
Chandler's exhibit waa very complete
In fruits and vegetables, aa well aa in
grains and grasses, his display includ
ing upwards of 20 varieties. While not
so neatly arranged aa aome of, tbe
others, yet its quality waa plainly dis
cernible on close inspection When bia
rating waa 100 and otbera 98, 95 and 93
