WHAT 1UU UK 1M?
Mn.wAi KiK, April, 25 Editor Oregon
City Herald: II you will give me space
in your paper I would like to ask you a
few questions in regard to a certain
matter. In your issue of April 21, I
notice an article with the heading;
Geo. C. Brownell. His Maimifleient
Record lor Influence and Magnetism,
and in connection therewith you proceed
to give a glowing account of his work in
the Senate, but you did not say anything
about what his opponent In this cam
paign, Mr. U'Rren has done. Now Mr.
Editor I am a voter in this county and I
take an iuterest in the welfare of the
county. I want to see good men, elocted
to office and uot only good men, but the
best men, and in order thatwe may know
who are the best men, it is necessary that
we should have both sides of the ques
tion and for the benefit of myself and
other readers of your paper. I would
like for you to tell me in your next
issue, what did Mr. U'Ren do for the
people while he was in the Legislature,
how many bills did he fail to get and how
much money did he get for the failure to
set any bills through the Legislature?
In Bhort, what did Mr. U'Ren do tor the
people of Clackamas County during the
term he was elected to the Legislature?
These are questions which I consider
pertinent to the matter under considers
tion. I therefore adopt this method to
the end that I mar tain the desired
nformation. Shall send a copv of this
to to the editor of the Enterprise in
order that be may have an opportunity
to answer these questions.
John II. Gibson.
