Itavje us a call on ilonday morning.
He is a pleasant and agreeable gen
tleman, and thoroughly wide awake.
Be left for Portland Tuesday uiorn-
$everal months since I sent out
dniis to people in The Dalles, Inde
pendence and Canyon City, for sub
scription due the Bedrock Democrat
which I took in settlement with that
office. Some have denied ever tak
ing the paper, others say they have
paid the bill and out of the several
hundred dollars only about v-oO has
been paid. Now the accounts as I
received them were drawn oil' by J.
M. Shepherd, the very one that did
know whether they were paid or un
paid, just or unjust accounts, and to
place myself in a right position for
future action and for the purpose of
saving cost to innocent persons I do
and hereby reouest all those whom I
sent duns to to write forthwith to J.
M. Shepherd, at Baker City, and get
a release from the account if it be:iu
their power. I do not wish to sue
an unjust bill, neither do I intcmd
to be swinddled out of several hund
red dollars of hard earned money.
All pei-sons concerned will govern
themselves accordingly as the one
that owes me must pay it, and for
that purpose suit will be commenced
soon. S. H. SHEPHERD.
