This has been well Illustrated In
the flings that have been made against

and onjnstness of harsh words, but

" greatest crime has been a desire to
evolve order out of chaos, to operate
the affairs of Clackamas County at a
, minimum expense, consistent with ob
; talning decent and effective results,
- sad to finally reach a point where
they can point with pardonable pride
to results that carry their own story.
In a recent newspaper Issue a string
of questions hsve been hurled at the
Clackamas County Court, thongh the
questioner could easily have given
satisfactory answers with less than
an hour's Investigation. While The

this newspaper believes that It is the '
right of every man In public life to!
refute, when he can, stories that are
. really derogatory to hla character and
to hla reputation as an official To get
ai in bottom of this matter, 'we pro
pose to reply to these questions, dis
posing of them briefly, but none the
less effectively. These are the questions:
Were road machines bought whh

As individuals, there is no doubt
but thst the members of the Commer
cial Club are heartily In aympathy
with the efforts of tbe Countv Court
lo systematize road construction. The
club, as an organization, has not gone
on record. If it should be celled upon
to do so, a have no fear aa to the
result. ""The Commercial Club could
not afford to refuse Its sactton to such
a meritorious effort.
The dealings, purchases and trans
actions of the Court since January 1
have been entirely in accordance with
the law. This csn be proven br an
examination of the records, alone, and
without evidence,- it matters little
-what may be offered for or aeainst
the contention or question.
The Enterprise hopes there will be
an end to this constant bickering.
While light should slwsys be shed
upon public matters, no one should
raise superfloua queries that are ao
easily answersble. If the newspaper
that raises these questions would take
the trouble to ascertain for itself the
true condition of affaira. there would
be no necessity of bothering the read
