Facts; Alleged to Have Been
Misrepresented In Regard
to Attorney Clark's Fee.
In answer to fcn editorial in the Ore
gonlan, which la declared to be a mis
representation of. facta relative to th
J4E00 attorney fee of A. E. Clark, spe
cial attorney in th bounty poor farm
foreclosure suit, John C. McCua, can
didate for district attorney, today
made the following statement:
"The Oregontan is 'again attempting
to defend Mr. Evans and his extrava
gant administration. The defense la
now directed In Justification and ex
planation of the county poor farm fore
closure suit.
Attempt to Befog Issue.
"Th defense Is none th less appar
ent by reason of the fact that the Ore-
gonian ostensibly directs It attack
against Th Oregon Daily Journal for
publishing certain letter demanding!
explanation as to why Mr. Evans employed-A.
E. Clark as special counsel
for th county and as to why Mr. Ev- -
ans agreed that 14600 wa a reasonable
attorney fee for Mr. Clark' service.
No doubt if the Oregonian can befog
the issue in regard to this foreclosure
suit It will likewise attempt to befog
the issues relative to th enormous ex
penditures in Mr. Evans' offic and
relative to th very larg number of
Indictments that Mr. Evans' office has
caused to be dismissed before trial, and
relative to th vast amount of private
practice which Mr. Evans and hi depu
ties ar dally accepting and engag
ing in.
"These ar nocontradtctabl facts:
Th Lombard mortgage wa foreclosed;
Mr. Clark, upon Mr. Evans' recommend
ation and acquiescence, was employed
as special counsel; the court, upon Mr.
Evan' recommendation, did allow Mr.
Clark $4600 a a reasonable attorney
fee. When th attempted explanation
la stripped of it verbiage, it will be
found that th only Justification that
this deal has at the present Um In th
minds of Mr. Evans constituents is
that the 14600 never has been paid.
However, it cannot be denied, if Mult-i
nomah county was to establish an asset
and liability sheet, that the $4600
would appear as an account payable In
the liability column.
Way Hot Publish X.eUrs. .
"xner is reference mad to some
Vlnd of a mysterious letter In regard to
the payment of Mr. Clark's fees. Why
not publish th content of this letter.
so that It may be definitely known at
this time, once and for all. how much
less than (4600 Mr. Clark will accept
for his services to Multnomah county?
Perhaps Mr. Clark, In a benevolent and
charitable frame of mind, will donate
part of hi fee to the county, and per
haps he will not. Perhaps this mys
terious letter has something to do -with
the settlement of this fee. and oerhans
It does not. In any event, why not be
fair and let the people know If they
do not owe Mr. Clark $4600, how much
the do owe him?
"By examination of the record, the
Oregonian will find that the Judgment
has been satisfied in full by the sale
of the property, and the sheriff deed
delivered to the county, and that Mr.
Lombard is Ihereby discharged of all
legal and moral liability of paying to
Mr. ciara one cent of the $4500. Any
claim Mr. Clark may. now have against
Multnomah county for legal services Is
against Multnomah county alone, and
it appears from Mr. Clark's letter of
date of February 16. 1916, published in
full in yesterday's Journal, that Mr.
Clark does have a claim against
Multnomah county. The county, soon
er or later, must settle with Mr. Clark.
Let this settlement be open and pub
lic, not secret and mysterious. No
doubt Mr. Evans considers it political
diplomacy to allow this settlement to
be made after the primaries."
