A Near Tragedy Occurs
on N.-C.-O. Near Raven
dale. 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

and .laughter preeeedod him a tew

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. ,

but was unable to find them. He

heifers which will stand him dose to
$75 per bead. These he shipped to the

cattle will be made to Lakeview from

any one interested should leave word
at the Examiner office, it is said that

most as cheaply aa thoe bought in
California earlier in the season, and
the expense of pm'chuhing two car

Tallies Were Feature with
Base Ball Game at Fair-port.
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.

"deeert land" is quite different from
that placed upon it by Webster. AS' a

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

classed aa "desert land" within the
meaning of the act.
Will Be a Crime For Red
Skins to Buy or Accept
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
Hy making he Indian us well as the
liuuor teller reauonsible. Senator
Jones believes liquor traffic with Ind
ians can be practically chirked.

Lake Sheriff Accidently Comes In Contact
With Bakersfield, (CaL) Jail Breaker and
Returns Him to CustodyPrisoner
Is Very Well Known Here
Sheriff W. B. Snider, of Lake
County, wbo bad already established
for himself a reputation for wielding
the band of justice, added another
feather to his cap Monday of last week
when he arrested Bernard C Sits,
alias B. G. Van Sant at Bend, wbo
broke jail at Bakersfield, Calif, about
a year ago.
Sitz ia a very well known character
locally, be having been located here
four years ago where he was engaged
in the real estate business onder tbe
firm name of tbe 'Tri-State Land
Company." While in this business he
became involved in some shady trans
actions. Later be went to Bakersfield.
wbere he was convicted on a federal
charge for using the mails for fraudu
lent purposes in making ales of lands
io Modoc County, . California. Hia
ease waa appealed to tbe Supreme
Court, and while be was in the Kern
County, California, jail awaiting the
appeal, be broke jail, making a clean
get away, lie wea successful in
evading the officers of tbe law since
until be came in contact with Sheriff
Sruder at Bend.
Mr. Snider, who in company with E.
E. Bret of Portland, w'as enroote to
The Dalles wbere be was going to
receive the Cadillac car receotly pur
chased by George M. Jones, his father-
.in-law. Snider while in tbe dining
' room of tbe Mountain View hotel at
Bend noticed Sitz just as be waa mak
ing bis exit from the room. Only
, getting a side glance at Situ, Snider
was unable to identify bim but bis
suspicions prompted bim to call in the
proDrietor and make inquiry. He was
informed that the man waa Mr. B. U.
Van Sant and that be was representing
a Spokane Realty firm in locating set- i
George Drenkel Succumbs
As Result of Becoming
Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Drenkel return
ed Monday ot this week trom Dickin
son, North Dakota, where they were
summoned on account of the illness
of Mr. Drenkel'a eldest brother, who
died tbe same day the Drenkels left
Lakeview. They did riot learn of the
sad news, however, until they wrru
within a few miles ot their destination.
The following obituary is taken in
part from the Dickinson Press :
"George Drenkel died Tuesday even
ing from cerebral hemorrhage, produc
ed by being overheated while at work
In bia machine yard. He was born
April 16th, 1853 in Pennsylvania. His
wife 'died in 1897, but is survived by
four children."
'Ibe youngest child, Miss Altbea.
aged 17, returned with Mr. and Mrs.
II. W. Drenkel to make her borne in
Lakeview, Mr. Drenkel having been
appointed her guardian.
George Drenkel had a large grocery
store and machine yard and was one
ot the most prominent oltizens of Dick-
InBon. Hi body was embalmed and
the funeral awaited until the ar

asking if be bsd been passing any
"bogus" checks, tbe Hotel proprietor
stated that he bad lost received one of
bis come bees checks for S50. This
waa convincing to Snider nl nnnn
! farther inquiry he discovered that bia
man was just passing through Itend on
bia way to Spokane, and saw that quick
action was necessary. Learning that

Snider examined bia trusty gap and
went to the garage wbere be lound the
real Sitz in tbe act of changing bis
boots, getting ready to depart in an
automobile. Snider confrorted his
prisoner, addressing bim and at the
same time covering him with tbe gun.
To Snider's "Hello, Sitz" the respond
came, "Hello Warner." ..
Mr. Snider secured shackles from
tbe officers at Bend, making his prison

breaking jaii be bad been in South
America aa well as in the eastern
states of tnis coantry, but that be

bim and knew of his trouble, and found '
it much more unsafe than in Oregon.
He had been connected witn the Spo

Says But 1,000,000 Pounds
Now Left In Oregon and
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.
