KLAMATH’S GREATNESS CROWS

LEADING NEWSPAPER OF INTERIOR OREGON.
If so, for what were you indicted ?
Have you received your pa.k.tgc ? The Federal grand ju’.v at Portland,
is handing them out, free.
The fight against John L. Sullivan opening a saloon In Portland during
the fair is probably not so much the result of a moral wave as It is a jealous

Fills It does not need a stretch of the imagination to predict wliat will be
doing in the spring.
The ice question is settling down to an Intelligent discussion of the
facts. The city council will probably be able to deal with the matter with
out matt-rial injury to owners, and at the same time contagious dlaeascs may
be held at bay.
The opening and closing fight In Portland has even been carried to the
draw bridges spanning the beautiful Willamette. International complica
tions may arise over the matter. Judge Webster, of the state court, declares I
he will close the bridges if it calls forth the United States army to open them
It is one time that Portland is universally agreed on closing.
The Lake County Examiner tears its shirt off at the suggestion of mov-1
Ing the U. 8. land office from that place to Klamath Fall*. The Examiner's
alarm is about as silly as the suggestion at this time of removing the office, j

bat it works intelligently.
With a relief .-nap of the Klamath Basin and Klamath scenes at the
Lewis and Clark Fair at Portland this year, along with a goodly display of
her products, many Eastern visitors will be induced to come this way. And
if they coine many will remain and induce others to come.
FOR THE GOOD OF KLAHATH

One as it Appears Today, and the Other as it Will Appear After Ir

There Is still nearly a month and a half to raise that subsidy but the
earlier It Is raised the earlier the railroad people will enter the field. The
bad roads, the delayed malls, and the difficulty of getting freights from the
outside ought to prove an incentive to subscribers.
The irrigation conflict in Klamath county now bids fair for sn amicable
settlement by arbitration. It is remarkable that there should be anything
to arbitrate under the statement of certain newspapers a few weeks ago. It
was given out to readers that the Klamath Canal Company was not in the
way of the Government project; that the Government could not use any of
the work of the private company; that Uncle Sam would not pay one cent
to the company to get out of the way. This was given out In gleeful head
lines in a sweet spirit of revenge. A tew people laughed with the paper
over this exclusive news and condemned the Republican for publishing both
sides of the story when its contemporary said there was but one gide. It
appears now that the Government has offered the Canal Combany tlOO.OOO
for its rights, as well as its works in Klamath county, at the same time giv
ing it exclusive navigation privileges on the new canal; and It has gone ’fur
ther, it has entered into an agreement of arbitration to determine whether
or not it will pay the company A150.000, or »2'0,000, or a sum between those
figures. The Republican has always known that It does not pay to lie or
just give one side of a story. The people have too much intelligence
the wool pulled over their eyes long at a time; they are not afraid to
¡uff, and they believe in absolute justice at all times and to all per-
rhe Republican favors Government irrigation, and it hopes that the
g**a\varH of the arbitrators will be fair and satisfactory to the Government as
well as to the Klamath Canal Company. Let justice be flone, that's all.

Arrangements have been made to arbitrate the
differences between the Government and the Canal Com

county, bringing many noted persons to visit us.
The following dispatch from Washington, D. CM says:
“The Government Geological Service is preparing two Relief Maps

less a fact that public officers are called upon oftener than any other class.
