A GOOD CHOICE
Dr. James "Withyeombe, the sueeessful can
didate for the Republican nomination for Gov
ernor, is a man who has long been held in high
esteem by the people of Oregon. His connection
with the Agricultural College at Corvallis has
made him many friends in all sections of the
State, and he has always been very popular in
the fanning districts. Should he be elected, of
which there seems to be no doubt, his admin
istration of State affairs will reflect credit up
on himself as well as the State generally.
One member of the Federal Keserve Board,
Henry A. "Wheeler, is a Republican, the other
three members being Democrats. All of the
members rank high in the financial world, al
though Dr. A. C. Miller, of Berkeley, Cal., is
said to have been a "radiciO. economic theorist
in his academic days." Dr. Miller is a rank
conservationalist, it being only through suffer
ance of the general Government that we of the
West are permitted to enjoy the free range of
the vacant public lauds. At the meeting of the
Central Oregon Development League at Klam
ath Falls last August the doctor gave expres
sion to numerous ideas that did not meet with
the general approval of the delegates. During
his remarks he took a raj) at Bill Hanley for
his broad ideas concerning conservation that
made the delegates .sit up and take notice.
Occasionally one hears of a rumor to the
effect that the recall is to be brought to bear
upon some official or other, or words to that
effect. That there may be no misunderstand
ing as to the position of the Kxaminer in case
tin attempt is made to recall any public offi
cial in Oregon, either State, County, Precinct
or City, it will state unequivocally that it is
oposed to such measures, lirst last and all the
timeand will to the utmost of .its ability en
deavor to prevent the starting of the recall
against any official, and if unsuccessful will
continue the light until the final result is reached.
Lake County is assured of an efficient ad
ministration of public a tTairs during 1015 and
l'.UG as the result of the primary election held
last Friday. All of the candidates chosen,
both Republicans and Democrats, are men of
ability and well lit ted for the iositions to
which they aspire, and were it not an "off
year" in politics it is not at all improbable that
some of the Democratic brethern might be suc
cessful. The Examiner can see no reason why
every candidate should not receive his full par
ty vote, and such being the case the result of
the Fall election is easily forseen.
Regardless of whether or not County Attor
ney Gibbs lost his first ease, he has shown him
self to be a painstaking officer and has great
ly expedited the criminal work that has been
brought to his attention. "While perhaps he has
not had the experience of some of the older
members of the bar, yet at the same time he
has shown his ability and willingness to learn
and to inform himself generally of conditions
"Weather conditions continue to be ideal for
the farmer, and the outlook has indeed a rose
ate hue for the husbandman. The hay crop will
be unusually bountiful, and unless there is a
large shipment of feeders into Goose Lake Val
ley next Fall there will be a big surplus. In
numerous instances the hay crop is as good at
the present as it was at haying time last year,
and with harvest time more than a month in
the future the yield should be a record-breaker.

Boys' Short Course In Agriculture I
In connection with the regular j
summer session of the Oregon Agri
cultural College, a two weeks' short
course in Agriculture will be given
for boys of the Seventh, Eighth,
and High School Grades. A special
illustrated circular of 16 pages has
been issued and mailed to all county
school superintendents and to city
and village superintendents and
principals. Copies may be secured
of them or of the director of the
summer school, I'rof. E. I). Ressler,
The circular contains a description
of the instruction 10 ne given, iuu
information in regard to It. K. rates,
.cost of board and room, supplies and
.clothing to be bought by boys, me
thod of application for enrollment,
.etc. There are also pictures of the
boys of last year's course in class,
laboratory, field, swimming pool, on
hikes and at games. Thirty-live boys
representing over a dozen counties,
attended the first session. Accommo
dations for 100 boys are provided
Preparatory to resuming work on
the construction of highways in ( ni
ter Lake National park, the war de
partment is establishing a road

Cat to Kirk, the northern terminus
of the railroad, over which machin

Sidney Sprout, chief engineer of
; the California-Oregon Power Co.
j with headquarters at San Francisco,
; Geo. J. Walton, division superin
tendent, with headquarters in Klam
ath Falls, and J. T. Bradley, of Bo
nanza, paid uoose LAKe Valley a
visit this week. The purpose of the
visit was the investigation of this
valley with the view of extending the
power line from Bonanza. They
reached Lakeview Tuesday evening,
and after looking over the possibili
ties here went down to New Pine
Creek, returning here Wednesday
afternoon and leaving for home this
morning. The gentlemen expressed
themselves as being well pleased
with the Valley, but gave out noth
ing definite as to the conclusions
reached in regard to extending the
line over here. The distance from
Bonanza to Lakeview is slightly in
excess of 50 miles on an air line, and
the expense of building the line be
tween the two places would prob
ably be close to $75,000.
The California-Oregon I'ower Co.
is one of the largest concers on the
coast and has a number of large
power plants, notably those on the
Klamath, several on Rogue Itiver
and one at Klamath Falls. All are
connected up so that if one or more
goes on the "blink" there will be
several more ready to supply plenty

' The local wool which doubtless
brought the biggest price of any lo
cal clip this season was that of J.

State Loses Taxes
Western Oregon Counties will lose
an aggregate of $460,395.32 in tax
es this year through the decision of
the Southern Pacific Company not to
pay on lands whose title now is sub
ject of litigation In the famous lajid
grunt cases in the Federal courts.
Although the Southern Pacific has
appealed the decision, which was tid-
verhe to the company, to the Supre
me Court, it declares its intention of
withholding payment of taxes until
the cae is decided. If the land final
ly Is declared the property of the
Southern Pacific, the unpaid taxes
will be paid, with interest.
