there being a special order for 20
papers that day, and a regular press

the truth of an affadavit signed by
Schleusner saving the average press
run of the Tribune since November has
been about 1275 and that on January
20, 1921 the actual run was 1255
copies.. He also identified a rate card
used by the Tribune In which it is
claimed by the paper to have over 2S00
"lie paid subscribers" and admitted

Comparative Figures Given
The law requires that the two news
papers having the largest circulations
in the county be designated as official
newspapers by the county court. The
sworn county circulation figures sub
mitted Saturday for the three papers
were as follows:
East Oregonian 243
Morning Tribune ...... 1037
Freewiter Times 963
The chief points in controversy dur
ing the case were as to whether carrier
route subscribers who pay on a month
ly basis should be counted, as to de
linquent subscribers and whether the
Preewater Times should be allowed
! credit for 204 subscribers secured "for
the occasion" through a blank sub
scription by H., S. Murray,- mayor of
Freewater. It was contended by Fred
Steiwer, attorney for the Tribune thaf
the Freewater paper should not be
credited with those subscriptions an
in rejoinder R. . Keator, attorney for
the Freewater Times, insisted that
many of the Tribune subscribers,
secured under a contest, were in the
The hearing in the case was finished
at 4 o'clock Saturday and at the con
clusion Commissioners Dunning smi
Bean asked Judge Schannep to de
cide the question. The decision wa
later announced in favcu of the East
Oregonian and the Pendleton Tribune.
The court ruled that the 204 special
subscriptions secured by the Freewatei
Times could not he counted and that
neither could credit be allowed for
subscribers delinquent for over a year
The value to a newspaper in hetn
designated as an official county paper
is chiefly sentimental and the big fea
ture of tho contest was the fight for
truthful circulation claims. The attor
nev for the East Oregonian, Judge J
i A. Fee. took no part in the contest be
tween the Tribune ana freewater
Times aside from aiding in developing
the true facts as to the local mornins
).p-r's uress run and circulation.
It will be recalled by advertisers that
something like a year ago the then
ublishers of the Tribune were called
on by the postuffiee department for a
nthful circulation statement and In
n revised statement filed at that time
'greatly reduced their figures. In view
of that Incident some surprise has been 1
expressed that the Trlinine sitomu nave
