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. The
only -section of this report upon
which there were negative votes was
the one rocommendlng grants of
non-jnlneral lands to states for the
purpose of financing irrigation pro
jects. 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. '

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

KHERRIKF AND DEPUTY HAD
LONG FRUITLESS TRIP
Reported Discovery of Sheepherder's
Body Proved Hoax Newman's
Veracity Questioned
After traveling something over 300
miles and wearing out his auto tires,
Sheriff Snider accompanied by De
puty C. 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

Bringing iu Dairymen and

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.
