And lies intended to deceive.
-,The ad says the Astoria chamber of commerce is against

fish wheel owners kept on publishing the lie after the Astoria
chamber of commerce had denounced it.
. The ad.says the men backing the bill against fish wheels
are foreigners; fishermen. The state' of Oregon does not
issue; fishing licenses to other than American citizens.
The ad says the "Clatsop county press" is against the bill.
The1 Astoria Budget says that is a lie. The newspapers there
are 'for it; ''''4 ''
