iLEiP ATD REGRET.
By :iocidnt we received a Walla
Wallu Stiitni'in this week and in it
we find an article in which the base
as-tute editor thereof goes after us
in the manner of hi dai'y life, by say
ing that we questioned his military
liile. We ni'ver knew that he had a
'military title," and knowing him as
we do, Ave would not believe it even if
we won to sec his commission, unless
be brought proof, undeniable, that it,
was not a forgery. He also Fays he
dors not know who or what we arc.
Well, Frank, we arc the one whom you
could not frightnn into telling vou who
our correspondent was that pot his re
port of the Camp Curry fight into the
Bcdr:ck Democrat before you got
yours into the Chronicle, ami al?o the
one who refused to drink several time.-?
with you in Baker City, for the reason
that Ave never drink with any persons
but gentlemen. Perhaps it is on ac
count of his barbarous mind that he
does not recollect us. No, the truth of
the matter is that he is '-hostile'' be
cause we do not see fit to vilify honest
men, like Major llinchart, and liplap
such :inmills Frank Packer, acting
editor of the Walla Walla P,reeh
Clout. The Postmaster General has issued
orders that no money order shall he
paid and no regis ered letter delivered
to any of the following named firms:
Sunbeam Publishing Co., Russell & Co.,
Leavitt & Co., New Bedford, Mas; II.
A. Burknett, New York City; Royal,

Reader, cat out the above and paste
it in your hat.
On Leave of Absence.
Lieut. R. P. Wainwrigth came in
on the Thursday morning stage from
Walla Walla. The Lieutenant is on a
four month's leave of absence, and will
visit friends in the East during that
time. He has heen on this coast four
years and has spent a great portion of
his time either on duty it some one of
our frontier posts or in tho field. Pull
of courage, energy and ambition, he is
a very useful man in this part of the
service. During the last campaign he
bore his share of the fatigues and hard
ships of long marches by day or night,
and whether riding in dust under a
burning sun, or making a nignt march
to sui round a wily foe. h; was ahvavs
the sain ' genial pleasant gentleman.
He deserves great credit for the cool
ness and bravery displayed in the
charge which closed the battle at Uma
tilla Agency a year ago this month.
The Indian fighter of the Breech
Clout, Walla Walla, says he will come
over here some time and get more sub
scribers in a half day than we have on
our entire list. If vou do. Frankie.
you can start a daily paper through
which to slander honorable men
that aie best liked where best known.
You have seen fit to open a fight on us
without the least provocation, or we
would not have disgraced our columns
to notice you. thereby giving you
prominence throughout the state.
Ak Apology. We hope our read
ers will excuse us for devoting so much
space to a ninny this wc?K The peo
ple h-re all know Maj Rinehart, our-5-olf,
nnd .-ire sorry that they know
Kranlc larker. This is the first time
that we have mentioned his name in
the News and hope it will be the last.
It is our rule that when a person lies
about ua we do not feel easv till we
tell them our mind. Adieu.
Eiank Parker, now of the Walla
Walla Statesman, prior to his employ
ment by the military last summer seems
to have been playing the ro.'c of scav
enger around the Malheur Agency
slaughter pen. And while engaged in
this laudable livalry with crows, blow
flies, and maggots, he got into his pos
session about one hundred beef-hides.
Thoj-o not being putrid enough to suit
his cess-pool appi-tito, l o xrdd them,
and then refused to account for the
price thereof. The agent made him
pay for the-o hides, at which he he
come very wra thy, and iruc t- his carri
on crow instincts he is now pt rchrd on
a three logged stool in Walla Walla
trying to blow his foul breuth upon the
agent who made him pay.
A Quaker Printer's Proverbs.
Never scud an article for publication
without giving the editor thv name,
for thy name often hccureu publication
to worthless articles.
Never do thou loaf about, nor kn ck
down the typ', or the b'ys will lve
thee as they do the shade trees when
Thou shouldst never read the copy
on the printer's case or the sharp and
hooked container thereof, or he may
knock thee into pi.
Never enquire of the editor for the
news, for behold it is l is business to
give it tv) then at the appointed time
without thou asking for it.
It is not right that thou should!
ak him who is tho author of an arti
cle, for it his duty to keep such things
Prefer thine own tovn paper to any
other, and subscribe for it immediate-
Pay for it in advance, and it shall
be well with thee and thine.
