S THE ATTACKS
WALTER REED SAYS CONCES
SION IS WELL CONDUCTED.
Gives His Personal Guarantee That
Tatrons Will Be Fairly Treated
and Ably Served.
PORTLAND. June 25. (To the Editor.)
In view of the persistent and manifest
ly unfair 'attacks made against the opti
cal conceasion at the Lewis and Clark
Fair, issued In ray name and conducted
under ray auspices. I believe. In Justice
to myself and those who awarded the
concession that the time to ripe for a
categorical reply to my accusers and de
tainers. In order that thb reply may be
thorough, comprehensive and final. It will
be necessary for roe to refer back to con
ditions existing before the opening of the
Exposition, while the optical concession
was under consideration, but had not yet
been granted to any of the numerous bid
I frankly confoss that at that time I
looked upon the granting of such a con
cession to irresponsible outsiders as dan
gerous and likely to work a fraud upon
the public 1 was induced to take reports
which had reached me from St. Louis
and other places where expositions were
held. Small wonder, that, feeling as I
did at that time. I not only spoke openly
agalnst the granting of such rights, but
also wrote disparagingly against It in my
advertisements published In The Oreson
ian. Shortly before the Fair opened. I was
invited to Join in a bid for the optical
concession, to be issued in my name.
I with the understanding- that all transac
I tlons resulting were to be, under my
j supervision. Not being a traveling fakir.

store, and so accepted the offer.
As soon as the .booths at the Fair,

were in running order. I published, as
evidence of good fakh. a personal guar
antee in the three Portland papers, to
stand behind all transactions, to correct
abuses, rectify mistakes, in measuring
or fitting- eyes, and give ample satisfac
tion to alt patrons. And I have kept my
word. "What has been the results? Out
of hundreds of cases of eyes fitted, there
have been a half a dozen or so of com
plaints registered. In several of these. I
have made slight but satisfying changes
in the lenses prescribed, and ia ethers I
have returned the money paid. A notable
case of the latter settlement was that of
a woman so extravagantly misstated by
the "Fifth-street barber." So far from
paying S3.90 for a bottle of "cureaM." as
malicious!- reported, this "particular
victim" secured three pairs of glasses and
was given a bottle of murine to drop in
the eye for Inflammation. Her money
was returned, out of sheer pity, because
she claimed that her daKy bread depend
ed upon her getting it back, although ad
mitting that the glasses met her actual
requirements. To misrepresent in such a
case as this. Is not only a malicious, but
at the same time a base exhibition of in
gratitude. As a pleasant offset to this
uncalled for venom, a host of Fair cus
tomers have voluntarily called at my
j store and praised, unstintedly, the serv
ices rendered their vision at one or other
of the booths.
The magnitude of the business done by
the Walter Reed Concession Company,
required the employment of 39 expert
opticians, and. it may be readily believed,
that, with such a number engaged, even
where the best testimonials are de
manded, a few unworthy men are liable
to slip in at the outset. These have,
however, been weeded out as soon as
discovered, and our staff, as at present
constituted, is both competent and trust
worthy, doing no "spieling" and guHty of
no. false pretenses to secure trade.
Again reiterating my guarantee to
stand behind all work done at the Fair,
as I have for all work done at my Optical
Institute, during- the past 20 years. I re
