the lax system o f notifying par
ties to whom warrants are due
from the county; the Oregon City

present system is wrong, but ¡
possibly for fear o f losing county l
printing or advertising, refrains
from further comment. Until)

forcibly against some of these
lax methods o f county manage

will be effected.
