"We remember the kiss she gave us
It was down by the Smoky river,
When we think of that sweet buss,
It fairly makes us shiver.

Was given near Hillis' Bline,

But the kiss was extra fine.

'MbriOR News: De.vr Sir: Hav-
een- in your issue of Nov. 13th an
Article censuring the people of Bea
ver and Warner for not holding elec
tions or opening polls, I am induced
by my love of right and justice to
send you a few 'lines to infbhif you
-why no election was held in this
precinct: and after hearing me, 1
urn sure you will withdraw your
rash judgment; for we of Beaver
precinct do not believe that you
would intentionally misrepresent us.
As a lawyer would say, now as to the
facts: Owing to the neglect or fail
ure of the County Clerk, Sheriff, or
some other person, we had no poll
book, and not being lawyers, only
farmers and stocs raisers, we did not
know that we could legally hold an
election without having a poll dook
made out by the couniy Clerk: and
in fact we do not know yet that we
could have done so, but there are
t!ios3 among us who say that we
might have done S9 legally. These
are the facts in the case, Mr. Editor
and I hope you will be kind enough
to give them to the public through
your columns. D.
In answer to the above we will
say that when we wrote the article"
referred to we supposed that they
had poll books, but we have been
authoiatv3ly inforaiel that the
books, blanks, &c., were duly
sent to said precincts, but
' through the gross neglect or willful
intention of some person or persons,
they failed to reach their destina
tion. We beg pardon of the Beaver
and Warner people forjudging them
so harshly, and now feel that they

the next election to get evenx

If love is blind, as they say it is,

A D: ffarenct,
1 Perhaps many ox our sheep meti
do not know the differenc between -
"commission men and in view thereof
wa herewith give two statements and
they can see for themselves: Pirst is
a condensed statement from Eoude
bush & Larsen, Dalles, to Rogers &
Blackwell. Total charges on 3543
poui d 1 of wool from Canyon City to
San Prancisco, including commis
sion for salo of wool and all .expenses,
Here is a statement from Allen. &:
Lewis, Porhlnnd, to S; Fieldsjpjai
chargeB -on "8-112 pounds- oK wool
from Canyon City to San Francisco,
including commission for ..sale of
wool and all expenses, $410.90.,
Blackwell shipped 'direct to ther
Dalles men, while Mr. Fields as
signed his wool to Overholt & Mulj
drick of this city, thus saving clear :
about $400, quite a nice little amount
these times. Just why $4C0 differ
ence can be made in the above
amount of wool between here and
San Francisco is hard to tell unless
the two houses do a different kind of
commission business. Perhaps one
uses the old style and the other a
patent style. At any rate it will.be
well for our sheep men to look-to
their interest and. not get robbed
after they have raised tho wool.
We hope that hereafter they will be
more carefu Remember that. Van
Horn, Venater and other sheep men
were robbed of thousands two years
aqro. Those cases should havebeen
a lasting warning to shippersbut it
seems thatitwns not heprled.
