'I lie flood waters lasted we'.l Into T'.vrsduy ntrht and sever il tlurs the curfew bell was sounded to bring out more volunteers to keep the waters confined to their course. Owing to the washing down of gravel and sediment It was difficult to keep tho flume open, and as a consequence Friday morning the wa ter was running down Canyon and Center Streets, Workmen have since been kept busy In clearing the flume, and it Is very apurent that the town will have to take steps to provide a Hume suf ficient In strength nnd size to carry tho water from the canyon through the city. No basements other than that of the Heryford Bros, building were dumaged, but the trouble there ap parently Is from an underground flow or seepago as no water went In from the top of the basement. The floor Is covered with cement but this does not serve the purpose as the water is forcing its way from under neath. Several pumps have been kept going day and night with the result of currying the water out Just about as fast ns It comes In. For tunately the water has done but lit tle damage to the stock in the base ment ns It has not exceeded much over an Inch In depth at any time, however, it has occasioned no little Inconvenience and the duration of the trouble Is but problematical. It Is believed by some that this is tho natural channel of a former How of water and that the extra pressure of the recent high water caused It to force through the floor of the basement. CONFERENCE ENDS THE OREGON DELEGATES VOTE AGAINST MINERAL GRANTS State Control of Resources Wins Af ter Considerable Debate Over the Subject The Western Governors' confer ence at Denver called by Secretary of Interior Lano for consideration "bf problems relating to reclamation of arid lands closed Saturday night. The report of the committee on ir rigation districts was adopted.

Delegates from California and Oregon wore among those voting "no." Belief in conservation and a de duration favoring state control of resources was featured in resolu tions adopted by the conference in the closing session. The governors' declaration favoring the oponlng of, mineral-lands was Indorsed and tho uso of revenue therefrom for recla mation of arid lands urged. Governor William Spry, of Utah, was elected president and Governor Lister of Washington was elected secretary, Seattle was chosen as the next meeting place.

Before the fes tive board there gathered the mem bers of the society and their guests. The evening was spent in not simply the "benevolent assimilation" of the many elements that made the table look bright and resistlessly tempting but in serious expression of modern practical Ideas in the form of toasts, also the exchange of many interest ingly witty stories from those gather ed around, who represented many climes and various phases of life of human nature's pleasant side. Many representative citizens in public and private life uttendeii and so well did everyone fill his part In contribut ing to tho evening's pleasure and profit to his follows, that space would not permit a detailed chronicling of the many features. So merrily and smoothly did the evening roll along, that it wus with a feeling of the deepest regret that the company was compelled to disband and seek repose preparatory to resuming the duties o the various businesses of the day that had by then made its appear ance. A number of new members joined the organization and spirit ed meetings are looked for from now on. The Society Is opeu to men of Lakeview and meets every Monday ovenlug.

This plvts the voters of the state the longest lint of candidates from which to make their selections at the primary election, May 15, ever presented in this state. The voteri may now know definitely the names that will be on the ballots and be gin their study as to weed out the unfits. Of those who filed completed petitions 195 are Republicans, 43 are Democrats and 14 ae Progres sives. Two years ago there were oniy 125 Republicans and 58 Demo crats. This year, however, all can didates for district as well ex s'ate olficei filed their petitions with the secretary of state for the first time, ar.d that accounts for dome of the in .rcas'i.

D. Arthur returned home Monday night from a "wild goose chase" to Harney County where they went to Investigate the reported find Ing of a man's body near the head of Rock Creek. The trip was made upon the report made by Chas. Newman who stated that he and Mr. Gilbert, who resides in that vicinity had discovered the body of the llasco sheepherder who disappeared from the Dave Edler camps the latter part of December. Newman was taken to locate the place, and the Sheriff of Harney County was notified to meet them at the scene. After reaching the Laird place ut Flagstaff, the informant told the otlicers that he had not found any body, and admitted that he had deliberately lied about the entire affair. This sudden turn of affairs added somewhat further suspicious, and the fact that they had gone this far, the ofllcers decided to continue tho trip to where Mr. Gilbert lived. Ho knew absolutely nothing of the situation, which established conclusively that the officers were the victims of a honx, aggravating in no small degree. Aside from finding it out from per sonal experience, they secured plenty of evidence adverse to Newman's character as being the most truthful man in the world. He was left at the "P" ranch with a welcome that would apparently last but a few days. From this ranch the Harney County Bheriff was saved a hard trip by being informed of the true status of affairs by telephone. Mr. Snider had to bq to Burns to got gasoline for his cir to return home, they making the trip from that place to Lakeview Monday. E. S. Berney, who last week came up from Fallon, Nevada, and Geo. Rents went to Bonanza last week to submit a bid for the construction of the dam of the Horsefly Irrigation project. They went by auto by way ot Alturaa and Clear Lake. Bid Id Modoc Rejected I. A. Underwood , local contractor and builder, last week made a trip to Alturas on business connected with bidding on the conHtructlon of the new courthouse at that place. According to the Alturas papers Mr. Underwood's wan the second lowest bid submitted that on build ing style No. 1 being $97,000 and on No. 2, $90,500. Several bids were received, ranging In figures trom $129,424 to $87,385 on No. 1, tnd F. J. DeLongchamps, architect from $122,324 to $87,385 for No. 2. who drew the plans, estimated that No. 1 could be built for $91,000 and No. 2 for $84,000. Ab all bids were In excess of these amounts the Mo doc supervisors rejected the bids and have ordered a call for new bids for construction of the court house. LITTLE NOL SOLD IOCAL SITUATION IS MISREP RESENTED BY OREGONIAN Only About 200,000 founds of En tire 1011 Clip lias Been Con tracted to Pate In quoting the wool market and situation over the state, the Ore gon lan of April 7th said in part: "It is reported that most of the Lakeview wools have been con tracted for, as well as the clips run ning up into the Bend district. The prices paid were high and induced quick selling." The above is entirely misleading as the local wool crop for 1914 is practically unscratched, the total number of sales in the entire county up to' this week amounting to only about 200.000 pounds. The sales In the Lakeview district reported thus far are the clips of Ben Daly, S. B. and Dan Chandler, Wo. Mc Corniack, M. Sanders, Tom Flook, Ed Lamb, and Shedd & Crowder and the Leonard wool at Davis Creek. No doubt the statement was an oversight on the part of the Oregon Ian, bui such reports are detrimen tal as they would "tend to keep buy ers from the field, thinking that the wool is about all taken. . Last year Lake County shipped out something over a million and a quarter pounds of wool. The clip tlifR vear vill probably run sonie less in quantity, it being estimated at about 1,100,000 pounds, but the quality is better than the 191o wool. A tew bands are now being suora, among them being those of F. A. Fltzpatrlck and VVm. MeCormick at Summer Lake. Little shearing will be done until after the lambing sea son which has already begun, but which will not be at the height until about April 25. With new buyers arriving the market is promised renewed activity and growers are assured fair prices for their wool. One sheepman in formed the Examiner that he re fused an offer of 14 M cents for his clip, it is understood that the aver age price being paid is around 14 cents per pound, although many growers believe the average price will reach 15 cetits. DAIRYMEN COMING FIFTY FAMILIES ARE EXPECT ED TO ARRIVE HERE Curds & It ley are Instigators iu Bringing iu Dairymen and Their Stock W. P. Curtis, of the firm of Curtis & I'tley, who last week returned from a trip to San Francisco and points iu Southern California, in forms the Examiner that he is very hopeful that his effort in interesting Swede and Swiss-Italian dairymen in Lake County lands will prove successful. He states that he found a number cf tennants iu that fection who are paying very high rentals on land and are anxious to acquire tracts where values are not so high. These people have long been dom inant in the dairying Industry and all have herds of good dairy stock which they intend to bring to this country. Curtis & Utley state that they have some very desirable ranches upon which to locate these dairy men, and believe that they will be successful In locating about fifty families in this section.
