“Hon. John Wickham, of Reardan, was a visitor in town Thursday. Mr Wickham is one of the old landmarks in Lincoln County, and it always does one good to see and hear him smile.  He takes the world as he finds it and never frets, which is a rare and happy virtue.  Like the tropical bird he takes his flight southward or coastward every winter, and comes back in the spring.  One winter he goes to Australia, the next to California, and the next somewhere else. Last winter he stopped in Vancouver, BC, where he owns a lot of city property, besides a mercantile business. In former years Mr Wickham mixed up in politics with the rest of us a little, and gave spice to the fight, but he was always the same good-natured individual, and the Times hopes his shadow may never grow shorter, and that Lincoln County may never lose him.” (LCT: 4-14-1905)
