as you or any gentleman not connected
with the city In nit olllcial way. I
will Dot, and presume no one else will
claim, llial Hie administration of Un
law is perfect In Eugene, but th) claim
nud challenge proof to the contrary,
thai the laws arc as well administered
in Eugene it in any town in the state;
and furt ue hat as good order is ob
served on all occasions bet I y our ow n
people ns Is ohscrvvd in any city in
Oregon. I go further and sssert with -
out fear il siicccsslul contradiction,
that the ordinances of this city nit It-tier
enforced than are tlie law s of l he
state in any county ol Ibe state.
Would it not be well for you lo turn
your attention somewhat lo that
greater need, the la tter enforcement
oftbela(i laws, for how can we live
In a stale whose law are not enforced
to the letter.
Hut back to the city; the police force
is necessarily small ami the duties ot
the police are limited and the force
cannot do everything needful with
reference to a rigid culonviiicnt of Un
laws; they must have Hie aid and as
sistance of the cltUen of Hie town.
And right here 1 will inform you Ilia'
any cltl.eii hits ft s rfect right lo liiake
complaint and become prosecutor
against any ollunder within the city,
i'lds duty doe not la-long exclusively
to the city olllclals, save In a very few
enumerated cases; so there I no ex
cuse forany Itl.en desiring the law
enforced (like yourself) lo wait for, or
in the mayor or any policeman, tml
let him apH-ar before the proiier nftlecr
and make complaint, anil If II ere Is a
reasonable probability of a convlctiou
the ease, w ill be entertained; and as
city attorney I will use my la-st en
deavor to make prosecution success
rul. Now lr, It you know of a single vlo
lationtifany city ordinance, 1 Invite
you to make the fact known and put
me and tho other clly ollht rs, whose
blislnet It shall be to the test. You
have done much talking, now won't
you act Just once. Let mo remind you
that any other citi.eti ha tho same
right to talk that you have; and on
the other hand I remind you that the
ame duty rents on you to aid In the
iiiitlnleliinnco of good government as
rests on any other man In Hie city. In
other wonls.lt I heller for you to us
Hist tho oMcer In a practical way than
lo occupy Hie time In faultfinding.
Another thing I call your attention
to. I huvo never heard you, or heard of
you crediting the cily ofllcers w ilh the
lailhful dist-hargn of a single duty, but
their short coming, real or Imaginary,
mostly imaginary, are constantly held
up to the public gn.e. If space would
permit I should take pleasure in pre
senting at least a brief review of (lit
enforcement of the iMtual ordinances id
the city; but I have already written at
greater length than I Intended w hen I
commenced to address you. One thing
however, I feel Hint I must mention:
Within tho last few ytal, three house
of ill funic, have been by the clly olll
ceri completely broken up ami the In
mates drlveu from town, ami several
other Immoral women have been
driven from another place and com-
(H-lled to leav town. I have never
heard you mention any of these things
and the reason I mentioned KsH-clally
is because lliat subject seems to be a
hobby with you. Permit nn to say,
during a residence of nearly nine years
in this clly, there has not lieen a may
or, recorder, marshal or city attorney,
but what attempted talthfully to dis
charge his ofllclal duties.
The mayor, tlie chief olllcer of Hie
cily, were all high minded, honorable
olllclals, not dlflerlng In any materinl
particular In olllcial admiuistiatlou.
Here they are: F It Dunn, A (1 llo
vey, J II Mi-Clung, H II Ft lend ly ami
J I) Matlock. Your accusation against
the government of the city, are in the
main without foundation, and as com
pared to other cllle without any foun
dation In fact, and you are In a reck
less mnnner disseminating false Im
pression of our pisiplo, and thereby
damaging every material ami moral
interest of our cily.
In conclusion I will say that I mil
willing to ui'iet y.i i In any pi bll
place In Eugene and Join Issue with
you with respect to Hie tilings men
tioned In this Utter.
Very Hespect fully,

wrote at mice to the Salem Poultry
Journal, from which we tpiote:
'Hold the fort, fi r I am coiiilna;'
yes, Its settled, for I've just been out
(since Is'giuiiiiig till letter) and found
live little Violet Hocks just out of tho
shell. Yes, sure enough, Just on
cockerel and four pullets, and such
I'cautics they are, and so Ihiely marked
Hint I have already iiiade up my mind
In Just drop K in the pool box and
meet tho Hock boy from far and near
at the Stale fair next fall.

herself by tillering greater inducement

Eugene to raise a special list equal to
the one ollclcd by the business men of
Portland at our last state show."
