that thero Is no pvldnnco to produco, nnd tho Vnlo sheet know It.
It produced no evidence to substantiate Its chargoH that tli fiimlH

alter so grave a charge? Why hocnuho the chargo wuh Tulso.
Itut tho Vulo sheet did have flinch to relate about routluo methodH
omployeil In county affairs, nil by Innuendo to bolster up tho wenk-
noss of Its previous stntoment, thru confualng tho minds ot Its
reader. It asked why no statement had been made to It concern
ing Judgo Test's demand ror a Grand Jury as If It, and not tho
Grand Jury wero tho placo where statements. should bo inailo.
Tho Kntorprlso, caught In Its attempt to deprive Dead Ox Flat and
Jordan Valloy or the roads they wunted attempted to confimo Its
roaders by declaring that tho Head Districts woro SKCIIKTIY com-
blnod. What does the Vale paper moan by socretly combined?
Was not this OI'K.N'M' recommended to tho Court by tho Mulhour
Development Leaguo? Tho Hntoiprlso knows It wus.
