Lake County Case of Four
Years Standing Before
Supreme Court
After four years litigation the right be
tween the Cliewaucan Land A Cattle
company, a aulialdiary to thellrm of Mil
ler and I.uk, California cattle klnga.aud
half hundreil settlers ol the rich (an.,
ing and graxlng Isuds along Silver creek
In tali) county for water rlgl.te, waa
argued at length before the itipreme
court at Halem.
Tho suit for the water rights wss orig
inally begun before Judge II. L. Benaon
in tho circuit court ol Lake county.
After a year and a halt ol stubborn
fighting (or the control ol the titer,
Judge Benson rendered n decUlon in
favor ol a maorlty ol the settlers and
against Ike Chewaucan company and
the remaining settlers. The case was
then appealed to the supreme court,
before which it has slnco been pending.
It Is thecontontion ol the Chewaucan
company, which owns a vast area of land
around the Pauline marsh, into which
Silver creek empties, that the settlers
along the river use up the water before
It reaches the' marsh, thereby leaving
their lands loan arid and unproductive
condition. " ,

The null cr Ice for thla city haa nt
lait reached tlm limit. For the patt
year knlediiropic changes have been thu
order of the day, nnd no man knew from
ono day lo the next when he would 1
able lo receive ami aend out mail. Kach
change wemetl to lw for the worst, but
it remained for the goternment to inako
tho final dath into thu Held of error and
leave thia aectlon where It's mail la In n
plight far woree than ever before.
Monday morning a new icheduin wss
Inaugurated. When the Klamath Lake
railroad changed Ita achedute so that ita
trains left I'okc;ama In the evening at
Oo'clotk, the mall contractors asked
that their schedule N changed so they
might leave here at 7 o'clock in the
morning. After sufficient red tape had
been unwound the onler came from
Washington directing that the mall
leave Here at 10 o'clock in the morning
allowing a ten hour Khedulc to reach
I'okegaina. It waa assumed that a
change had been made in the departure
ol the train from I'okegama, bat not to,
the hour of leaving that station being S
o'clock, eight hours ntter the mail leaves
this city. Thiadid not allow of auflki
ent time for the stsge to reach Pokega
ma and the result Is that the mall re
mained their until Tuesday evening
twenty-four hours after It should have
left Ihat point.
For this departure on schedule lime
tho railroad company is not to blame,
for the reason II the Klamath Lake rail
road company does not make Its sched
ule, whether It carries the mall or not
it will be fined by the postofflce depart
ment. After reaching Thrall it remains there
ten hours, (or the mail going north, and
19 houra for the mail going south. The
result will be that over eight days will
be consumed In getting an answer ton
letter sent to Portland.
Thia Is a matter that tho Chamber of
Commerce ought to take Immediate
steps to rectify. It la quite evident that
the iKMtolIke department is too busy
