We have never tried to express the
opinion of anyone at Fine drove
outtilile of our order. Neither have
we tried to "steer" the editor of the

against an attack made upon the
grange by htm. We have simply
told through the New our own
opinion and action upon the assera

falsehood when he says that we
"strenuously Insisted" upon an addl

following copy of a letter received by
us explain Itself:

J. H.Mohr, Master Fine Grove Orange
Fine (irove. Ore.
Dear Sir: 1 have your letter In re
gard to the awarding of prize lant
Fourth of July, eHpeclally the sweep
stake prize a warded to Flue (Jrove
grange. Will say that the Judge
were somewhat In doubt a to their
Instruction and on taking up the
matter with the executive committee
they were unanimous that the sweep
stakes prize for the lient float be
longed to Fine (irove grunge aud so
awarded It, and as far a the com
mittee wa advised everybody was
satisfied and we cannot understand
why anyone who apparently had no
Interest In the matter should raise
the question now. Yours truly.
1). McDonald, Chairman,
4th July Committee.
Fine Grove grange entered the pa
rade to help makethe Fourth of July
celebration a success and not for any
pecuniary reasons, and we feel that
our efforts were appreciated. We
wonder what "Short Fine" and his
klud ever did to make a success of
anything. There are some minds so
selfish that they are like the Dutch
man said of such people, but who
got slightly mixed In hi language:
"Bird ui it one feather flocks by him
self." We are thankful that there
are but few of "Short Fine's" calibre
In Fine (Jrove who see nothing but
the fault of others and are ever
ready to retard any good cause.
They are simply a nonentity to the
community in which they live. The
most cowardly, the most sneaking
aud the most Insulting epithet In hi
article Is In his language which says
The iHTsounel of the Fine (irove
grange should Ik? thoroughly known
In your city, so that they might re
ceive all the plaudits to which their
meritorious act and deeds entitle
him." This language Is an attempt
at sarcasm used for the purpose to
suit and create personal hatred
toward our meinlH-rs.
