WHAT PO WE GKT?
Wby are taxes higo1? Some of the
causes are reTealed in the existence of
a number cf sppsrently uteless state
offices and forr missions that have been
created. We are now upending three
tiroes ss much raoney for sttte pur
poses as we did a decade ago but the
population of the state is only one-half
to one-thitd larger.
Referring to useless commissions
and commissioners who are idle office
holders we have in mind the State
Labor Commission. The Examiner
fully appreciates the importance ot the
labor question and fully believes In its
proper adjustment and equal protec
tion for the laborer. Maybe Commis
sioner Ho ft is serving ua well in this
capacity, but'his fifth biennial report
of the Bureau of Labor Statistics and)
Inspector of Factories and workshops
of Oregon to Governor West and the I
Twenty-fifth Legislative Assembly.
Teaular session. 1913. la such a gross
misrepresentation of facts concerning
.- statistics ot Lake County teat It is an
absolute injustice to not only Lake
County bat the entire state. Such
conditions make the taxpayer wonder
wbatbe is getting for bis money.
Quoting from Mr. Uoff'a report,
among other outlandish misrepresenta
tions, it says :
The soil is well adapted to the grow
ing of grapes, hemp and hops. There
are 1000 miles of bad roads in the
county maintained bv tax lew. There
are no railroads. The total mean pre
cipitation for the year is 11.44. Of
Lakeview: Harry Bailey. Mayor.
The town is situated about 80 miles
from tbe Oregon and Nevada railroad.
The assessed valuation of town prop
erty is 1300,000. There are three
school nouses valued at $50,000. two
churcbes, a town ball and jail valued
at (50,000. There are eight teachers
employed. The town needs a laundry
and some real estate boomers.
Other items could be mentioned that
are away oft) but this is sufficient.
Now. to anybody else in Oregon
-besides the ones who compiled the
above "Matiaties" an explanation or
correction is unnecessary, but tor tbe
benefit of this commission some of tbe
exact facts and conditions referred to
ia tbe above, are given:
Our soil may be well adapted to
grape growing.' but we never heard of
even the most! sanguine boosters advo
eatina their production. We admit ot
having some bad county roads, but to
sav we have 1000 miles of such is bae
ignorance, natural soil and climatic
conditions if notbing else prohibits
such condition. . Since January 7, 1912
Lakeview has had daily train service
over the N.-C.-O. Hailwiy. The ever
age total precipitation bere yearly is
17 inches, which is very conservative.
Harry Bailey has not been Mayor of
Lakeview since 1910. The assessed
valubtion of the town of Lakeview is
about $900,000. There are twelve
teachers employed in trie town, and
there are three school houses, the high
school alone representing $60,000. Our
town hall ard iail are not valued at
$50,000 we wieh they were. Tne

Iou MoCiilIey Married
. Stealing a march upon his home
fnendw as well as his many local
friends and acquaintances, Lou Mc
Culley, formerly of this place but
now a resident of Cedarville, Cal.,
and Miss Kthel Wood of that place,
were united in marriage Saturday
evening, Feb. 28, in Alturas. The
eereinony was performed by Judge
Kaker in the presence of D. I), liax
ter, Mr. McCulley's brotlier-in-law,
who acted as a witness.
Mr. McCulley Is one of the most
substantial stockmen ot Lake and
Modoc counties, and the bride is a
charming young lady who lias resid

The newlyweds are enjoying sev

they will return to Cedarvllle to take
up' their permanent residence.

Fishing Party Hms Thrilling Exper
ience on Ijtke Near Mouth of
Measuring with his anatomy the
Icy waters of Goose Lake nearly one
half mile from shore last Sunday af
ternoon proved an unpleasant and
somewhat dangerous job tor L. Van
derpool. A fishing party, composed
of T. E. Bernard, J. D. Venator, L.
Yanderpool and Hay Curtis. Sunday
went out to Drews Creek, on the west
side of the lake.
A strong wind was blowing from
e nonnwesi. me ice on me iaae
not of the most solid nature.
and thereby hangs this tale
The party was fishing from off the
lake ice at the mouth ot the creek,
when Bernard and Venator went
ashore and to a cabin a few hundred
yards from the lake, where they were
camped, leaving Yanderpool and Cur
tis on the Ice. When they returned
to the lake the havoc played by the
stilt breeze was very apparent, as the
wind had drifted the body ot ice, up
on which were perched Vanderpool
and Curits, several hundred yards
out in the lake, leaving nothing but
water between them and the shore.
Fortunately the party had taken
along a rowboat which was soon
brought to the rescue. Tne craft was
manned by Bernard and the speed of
the gale which every second was
driving the two marooned men far
ther to sea, can be realized when it
is known that the brave rescuer did
'not catch up with them until nearly
one-half mile from land.
Further excitement was added to
the predicament when Vanderpool in
his eager desire to feet himself safe
ly seated in Tom's boat, ventured too
near the edge of his Ice Island and
went to the bottom of the lake. For
tunately the water .. was shallow
(Van's length considered) and be did
not go over his head. Fortunately al
so Bernard with the boat was there
to pick him up, and more fortunate
still was Venator on the shore to
start a big fire when he saw the
"ducking." Curtis succeeded in land
ing himself in the boat with only one
The fishing party returned home
Monday, and aside from the exper
ience they got nothing else.
John Silva Funeral
Impressive funeral ceremonies
were held over the remains of John
Silva last Sunday afternoon at two
o'clock by Lakeview Lodge No. 63,
I. O. O. F.of which order lie had been
a member for a number of years. The
funeral was conducted direct from
the hall to the cemetery, and quite
large number of members were in
attendance out of respect to the de
The circumstances surrounding
the death of Mr. Silva, whose body
was found near his cabin in Warner
Canyon last Thursday was quite simi
lar to that related in last week's Ex
abiner. The man was returning to
his hone from Lakeview Ti-.esday
evening when he was stricken dead
with apoplexy. The body was not
discovered until Thursday morning
when it was brought to Lakeview.
After a careful examination by the
doctor and coroner, the evidence .vas
plain that death was due to apoplexy.
John Silva wis i r.utive of Italy
and about 50 years of age. He had
lived in this county 'or a number of
years, spending the past few years on
a homestead in the Warner Canyon,
north of Lakeview. He would have
soon made proof on his claim. No
known relatives are left to survive
Hate Hortative March 10
The State Hallroad Commission
has anounced that the reduced ex
press rates would become effective
March 10. The various companies
informed the commission that it
would be impossible for them to
have the tariffs published before that
dale. No Intimation has been made
by the companies that they intend to
fight the new schedules. If they do
it would be necessary to be a Nation
al fight because the rates, with few
exceptions were made by the Inter
state Commerce Commission.
