A mestlng of the country editors of

land; U was the b3st meeting held for
'many years, both from a social and a
business standpoint. The representa

lie called attention to the difference
between a metropolitan newspaper
and a country publication which is
governed by many Ins and outs that
are hardly discernable to the naked
eye, or rather which influences must
b!. considered by such publications and
then compared the freedom of the
country press. His deductions follow
an early career In country newspaper
work, but those who heard his address
wondered if be had not forgotten some
of the drawbacks and rough places
which confront a country editor. How
ever, everything he said was good and
reflected the big, broadmlnded man
that hs Is. ' r , , ;
Johnny Carroll of the T el gram, an
other big man of the west, made a
pood talk on newspaper work and as
usual what he said was to the point.
Carroll is a natural reformer. He
lives it and breathes it. While he do;s
not neglect the news end of his paper
bis heart is In reformation along all
lines. He dots not agree with tba
statement that a newspaper Is a news
gathering agency only, for he believes
it Is a moral factor In a community
and regardless of what position an
editor desires to take the responsibil
ity still exists. ,;..iAi ;J..,- j, :

dergoing a change. It is gradually
'in llrensR. The holdr of a receipt
will be treated in every way the
same as though he had never made ap
plication for a licensa.
The reason for this action Is plain, i
In the past, notaries and justices of
the peac;, who have authority to col
lect for lictnaes, issue a receipt and
mail the money to the county clerk,
who, in turn, malls a license to the
notary or justice, tp be d3livred to
the applicant, have failed to do so,
pocketing the money and advising the
applicant that a receipt is equivalent
to a license. To stop this petty graft
ing. Game Ward n Finley Insists that
licenses, in the future, will be recog
nlzsd as the only evidence of a right
to hunt or fish. . ;-' .
"W have a fairly complete record
of notaries and Justices who have re
tained money belonging to the game
fund," said Warden Finley, "and they
are located all over the state. These
men have actually accepted money for
licenses and made no returns of it,
nor have they secured licenses for
those who have made application. By
arresting those holding! merely re
ceipts for licenses, we will shortly
run down those who have been guilty
of this fraud." . .. .
