Reno Journal : The loss of a three-year-old child from the window of a northbound N-C.-.O train Saturday, gave the passengers on the train a scare because of the near approach of a tragedy. The matter ended happily, however, with some tinge of comedy. Mrs. Ford with five children, boumi for Madeline, left Keno on train num ber one. All went well until tho moth er looked around after the train patted Kavendale, and found to her horror, that little Jimmy, tbe youngest waa missing. She searched the car and the remaining cars but tailed to rind the Infant. Ihen she noticed the . open window near where Jimmy bad been and hysterica followed. Outside the car another scene was enacted. Jimmy had fallen on a soft mound of sand and aa the train was traveling only 18 miles an hour he wa not hurt. lie scrambled to his feet and commenced the apparently feasible task of catching the 'rain. A work man saw tbo little legs traveling rapid ly trainwarda and Dianaged to attract attention of the engineer on one of the curves. The train waa stopoea ana Jimmy was carried the remaining dis tance, about a half a mile. W. M. Matthews, who recently sold bis place south of Lakeview to F. V.

SENATE GETTING DOWN TODUSINESS All Tariff Debates to De Closed In Five Weeks Work to Be Rushed. The Senate may now proceed to the business for which President Wilson called the extra aesaion of Congress revision of the tariff. Three months and four days after the special aeasion began, the Underwood-Simmons tariff bill was reported. The measure wss passed upon in committee by a atriot party vote. Aa It goes to the Senate the bill re tains the principal revision of the House measure and those particularly advocated bv President Wilson, free raw .wool and a provision that sugar shall be free May 1, 1916. ' The finance committee maiority and tbe caucua have greatly extended the free list and reduced many rates, notably in the metal, wool and agri cultural schedules. Sweeping changes however, have been made In the ad ministrative features and the income tax. Cattle and wheat are now on tbe free list, the latter with a countervail ing duty. I-onper sessions are being held to complete all debates within five weeks, if possible. , DECISION MADE IN DESERT LAND CASE COMMISSIONER OF GENERAL LAND OFFICE RULING IN MORGAN-FITCH CASE CON SIDERED IMPORTANT BY SETTLERS AND DESERT LAND ENTRYMEN The contest case of John A.

Ctusiplain Fitch, in which it waa Bought to provejthat the land in ques tion, the west half of the east half of section 23 in townxhiD 37 south of range 20 east, waa non-desert in char acter, has been derided in favor of Mr. Fitch by tbe new Commissioner of the General Land Office, Hon. Clay Tallmun, recently of Keno. The case will doubtless be appealed to the Secertary or toe Interior, by O. C. Gibbs attorney for Mr. Morgan. Muc Interest bas been centered in the esse by resson of the fact that other deeert !?nd entrymeq have been somewhat fesrf'jl lest their entries be contested, and the final outcome of the Morgan-Fitch case will be watch ed for by settlers anu desert land en- Itrvmon ppnprnllu Mure or less antag onism is said to exist among home steaders toward entrymen endeavoring to secure 'and through the desert act, COWS IN DEMAND IN CALIFORNIA Wisconsin Cattle May Be Shipped Hero This Fall, Says Report. The dairy cow proposition is a hard one at present, Fred Hansen having bought all the "cheap" cows in Calif ornia. J. W. McCoy, of Klamath Falls, scoured the State for a carload of HolsteinB for shipment to Lakeview but was unable to find them. He finally bought SI head of two year-old heifers which will stand him dose to $75 per bead. These he shipped to the Falls. It ia possible a shipment of dairy cattle will be made to Lakeview from Wisconsin during the coming Fall, and any one interested should leave word at the Examiner office, it is said that tbev can be delivered In Lakevlow al most as cheaply aa thoe bought in California earlier in the season, and the expense of pm'chuhing two car loads would be little if. any more than a single carload.

Tbe ball game last Sunday between the Lakeview and Fairport teams play ed at the latter ple waa a marathon Lakeview took 21 trips around the new diamond and allowed Fairport to make 11. It was a game of errors, many of them excusable, however as result of the grounds, while the others it Is said may be attributed to very bad baseball. It waa evident that Lake view was not at her best and tbe Fair port boys showed that the haying seaon had made inroads on tbe base ball brawn. The crowd in attendance at tbe game was large, nearly 100 people going from Lakeview, both on the N.-C.-O. excursion train and by aotos. An ex cellent dinner was served at the Fair port Inn, and the day was enjoyably spent in boating and bathing along tbe shores of Goose Lake, and this togeth er with the marathon made it a very pleasant day. The Fairport resort will doubtless prove a great attraction for such ex cursions In tbe future, and its popular ity should become troad in extent. and r. uXTj rcminda one ot the cattle and sheen war that is said Jo have ex isted in limes gone oy. In the Mores n Fitcb case the testimony was both voluminous and conflicting, and in the words or tbe Commissioner. "If tbe opinion end judgment of eome of con testant's witnesses sre correct, irriga tion plants in thst locallity are wholly unnecessary, while tbe testimony of other witnesses, and the judgment of Goverment officials, are quite to the contrary." Tbe Department's definition of "deeert land" is quite different from that placed upon it by Webster. AS' a genersl proposition areas where tbe rainfall is less than 20 inches, success ful sericulture ia problematical and even with that amount much depends upon whether the rainfall is evenly distributed through the growing seas on, and in such cases the land would be classed aa "desert land" within the meaning of the act. INDIANS FINED DNDERIIEW LAW Will Be a Crime For Red Skins to Buy or Accept Liquor. If the new bill introduce! in Con gress by Senator Jones, of Washington becomes a law it is believed that the frequent arrests in Klamath falls and on the Klamath Indian Reservation of men charped with introducing liquor on the reservation or selling it to Indians will beuome a thing of tbe past. This bill impotes a fine of S100 or i,ix months' imprisonment or both on any Indian soliciting or accepting liquor from other persons. The lepis lation Is intended to strengthen the law prohibiting the Bale of liquor to Indians", and bas been found necessary by several Western grand juries that recently have hand ltd cases of this chaiacter.

OREGONIAN ERRS ON WOOLESTIMATE Says But 1,000,000 Pounds Now Left In Oregon and Washington. Tbe;i913 wool Season in Oregon bas come to a close, saya the Portland Oregonian. Nearly all of the visiting buyers have left for Montana, the last public sale iu this state having taken place last week at Bend. There ia practically nothing leit in the north i central part of Oregon, except a few clips at Shaniko and a few scattered lots. It is estimated that the amount consigned by Oregon growers to east ern markets this year ia 1,750,000 pounds. Prices hare ruled steady, the bids at the public salea at the close of the season being almost identical with those at the opening. Fine wools have brought from 11 to 14 7-8 cents and medium wools 15 to 16 centi all over the atate. The Oregonian further states that not over a million pounds ot wool re mains unsold in tbe two states of Orr gon and Washington, Apparently the Oregonian doesn't rigor that Lake County belongs in that territory, or else nearly all the crops bave been add everywhere except in this conty. Con servative estimates shov that the total amount of " wool produced in Lake County this year will exceed 1,250,000 rounds, about50 per cent of which re mains unsold. Therefore, if we bave 678,000 pounds to sell, in order to cany out the thsorvjof the Oregonian theu bit, ti .ly u.t.olv puuiids outuida of this county in the entire states of Washington .and Oregon.
