New Land Office Official
Quickly Grasps Insight
To Work
Prof. J. F. Burgess Tuesday morn
ing entered upon hia dutiea aa register
of the United States Land Office, and
the Dublic business haa in no way Buf
fered fcy reason thereof. The professor
ia rapidly gaining an insight into the
routine dutiea of the office, Jand will
shortly be able to give the land seeker
full Information concerning the require
ments of the Department. The new
register ia a very pleasant gentleman
and fully realizes the importance of
hia position, and therefore visitors to
the office will alway be treated cor
dially and with the utmost rexpect.
Prof. Burgess will prove a painstaking
and accommodating official, hia past
record as principal of the Lakeview
Schools attesting that fact.
Reason For Gloom
The Modoc Republican: E. Arato
lad, Felix Leonl and another whose
name slipped away, went to New fine
Creek Sunday on the Lakeview Exeur
aion. Eliaa said he did not have a
good time at all. lie had a headache,
got wet and several other troubles
.came to him but I either did'nt under
stand what they were or have forgot
ten. He ia the onlv ono that we heard
say he did not have a good time on
the trip. Of course he did not go on
to Lakeview, and that accounts tor the
gloomy report."
Hard Work for Congress
Washington, June 30. (Special to the
Examiner) Official Washington will
have something to do besides going to
the ball games after the glorious fourth
ia past and gone. Congress will by
that time have got down to a hard
grind again, with the Senate ding
donging away at the tariff bill and
probably the House very much engros
sed with the banking and currency
There ia little attempt to conceal the
fact that Congress doea nut relish the
task of revising the currency laws this
summer. Washington ia not famed for
t the aalubrlty of Ita summer climate.
A temperature of 100 degrees is not
uncommon here, and the Congressmen
are nut keen about remaining here dur
ing the dogs days. But if the country
expresses an anxiety that the financial
system uf the country be referred at
this session, Congress will bow to the
verdict and buckle down to work.
Mrs. Frank Schmidt, who with her
husband lives on a ranch lo the north
ern part uf the vallev, Tuesday morn
ing departed for her former home in
St. Joseph, Mo., on an extended visit.
Senator Lane Votes Free;
Chamberlain Contends
For Duty
Free raw sugar in 1916 and free raw
wool now are established in the tariff
revision bill, having been approved
last week by the dem'crstlc caucus
of the senate after a two dsy'a fight.
The sugar schedule, as reported by the
majority memters of the senate finance
committee, and practically as it passed
the house, waa approved by vote of
40 to 6. Free, wool, aa submitted by
the maiorlty and just aa it passed the
house, swept the senate caucua by a
vote of 41 to 6. The Oregon senators
divided in the caucua on both measures,
Senator Lane voting for both free
wool and tree sugar, while Senator
Chamberlain contended for a duty on
Senator Lane addressed the caucus
briefly, urging democrats to show no
fsvoritiam to any industry and urging
them to make the greatest reductions
on the products of manufacturers or
producera who have been watering
their stock, who bsve been employing
loreigners to force down the price of
labor and who have fixed arbitrary and
exorbitant prices for consumers. Sen
ator Chamberlmn ail not make any
formal addreia to the caucus, but con
tented himself with registering his
vote. Now that the caucua has scted,
Chamberlain will let up in his fight
for a duty on wool and will abide by
the caucus' decision and vote for free
wool, together will all the western
democrats who weie defeated. Hia
vote against free sugar waa largelv by
way of bargain with the Louisana
Senators, and he will vote for! free
augar when the bill comes up for final
The democratic caucua also deter
mined to put cotton sewing thread on
the free list. .
Settlement In Eastern
Oregon Shows What May
Be Done
In the following editorial the Port
land Telegram givea some pertinent
advice and suggestions, and if follow
ed would prove of especial interest
and advantage to this county.
"We have a report uf the success of
the first Jewish agricultural colony to
bo establiatied in Eastern Oregon,
f ifteen uut of twentv familiea making
the venture less than a year ago are
permanently established, with their
iarms stocked, their crops in and
everything set for a profitable harvest.
There is contentment, and industry
and thrift and credit, and a new hope
ful and thriving community formed
where no community existed before.
Measured by the activities of tbee
people and their resulta there is just
that much more wealth in process of
creation, and just that much more op
portunity availed for the ultimate
building up of the state. Take it all
around thia report presents us with a
most encouraging faot.
"And there ia something of a moral
in the situation for people of other
nationalities in Oregon, and for those
who are seeking in public capacity to
Induce European Immigration of the
best claaa for the cultivation of Oregon
land and the building of Oregon com
munities. There is a veritable empire
in this atate that offers for the repeti
tion of just auch colonization enter
prise: and in those regions of the atate
where auch colonies must first exist
largely in the pioneer sense, it is upon
the whole better that they should be
composed of distinot nationalities.
There Is more nelgbborlinesa and more
contentment under such conditions,
and a greater inclination to hjp each
other over tha diffluultiei to
the planting of new communities.
The Je imi people have set a good
example, and tnu value of it will de
pend upon the extent to whK:h others
emulate It.

Al. Heminger Meets With
Fatal Accident Near
Klamath Falls
Just before going to press with our
last issue the Examiner was informed
of tbe accidental death of Al Hemin
get wblcn was caused by falling from
a Southern Pacific train near Klamath
Falls, while enmute to Lakeview, but
not being able to get tbe report veri
fied the matter was given no mention.
The following account concerning
the sad accident ia taken in excerpts
from tbe Klamath Falls papers:
Albert Heminger, claiming Oak Har
bor, Michigan, is dead in this city as
a result of injuries sustained Wednes
day evening when he fell from tbe
platform of the moving passenger train
south of here. The exact cause of the
accident ia unknown. Mr. ' Heminger,
who is said to be a miner by profession,
aaid he was on hia way from Spokane,
Wash, to Lakeview. Just after the
passenger train that arrives here
shortly alter 8 o'clock in the evening
had passed through one of the tunnels
in getting over what ia known as the
"Hole in the Ground" passengers in
one of the coaches heard some one crv
uut in sudden alarm or from injury.
Tbe train was stopped and backed
down the track to the scene when the
bruised body of Mr. Heminger was
found. He was picked up and rushed
to the hospital in thia city and physic
ians summoned. It was found by tbe
examining pbyalcian that Heminger
had struck on hia head in falling and
in addition to other bruises he had a
fractured aterum. He died at 6 o'clock
Thursdsy morning.
In a statement made just before his
death, Heminger declared he had more
than $2000 but as only a little over S16
was found on his person by the coron

of the in In was the machinations of a
suffering mind, aa it ia tot thought
likely that be waa robbed on the train
and then pushed off. It appears that
