To Citizens of Forest Grove:
he wished to improve the projierty he woukl like us to remove the boards as soon
as possible. We Hent two men up to do this within a week without making any
objections or waiting for further notice. Any statements to the effect that we
objected to removing the board, that we received more than one notice or that
we claimed a five-year lease, or that we we^y informed that in case we did not
remove the board it woukl be torn down, am# absolutely false—no matter where
they came from. When 1 wrote the News-Times, calling attention to the false
statements made, they came hack with practically two more columns of uncalled
Scott & Hurley have a different brand o f eye-sight from the kind I possess
if t.:ey can show a single instance o f our hill boards not improving the appear
ance o f the property used. Do they think that the appearance o f Mr. Watkins’
lot. for instance, looks better now with the fence on it than it did when the hill
hoard was there?
Our poster hoards in si* months had carried only one advertisement for
merchandise not sold in Forest Grove: that order came to us unsolicited; not
a single mail order or patent medicine advertisement in the list. Can the News
Times say as much?
We are building the finest type of bill boards that are built anywhere and
we make no apologies to th^.Ngwa:Tioies fyr their appearance.
If Scott & Hurley’ »yish to pose as benefactors o f Forest Grove they
would do well to come with clean hands. For their own good 1 will state that I
have been informed by several Forest Grove men that Scott & Hurley took
money from the local hardware dealers for advertising, alao published articles
urging all the people to buy at home,— yet when they had a house to build they
felt it necessary to go to Portland to buy the hardware and plumbing material.
I was also inform «! that ^Jien one'.of. the dealers upbraided Mr. Scott about
this he claimed to have bought from another dealer hut every dealer in town
atnted that they did not make the sale. I am staging here wiiat is common talk
in Forest Grove and for the good of Scott & Hifriey. If it is false, they should
make a public statement to that effect at once, as such a report is certainly not
helpful to anyone o f political aspirations.-
I am further informed by Forest Grove people that, although the News-
Times has vigorously fought permitting the local theatres to keep open on Sundays,
claiming that it is wrong, yet Mr. S^ott was seen by Fore*t Grove people in at
tendance’ at a Sunday evening performance Ht a Portland theatre. If this report
is false, Mr. Scott will d o ’well to make a public denial of it.
I believe that all who have read the News-Times articles will agree with
me that Scott & Hurley are making a grand-stand -play-for popularity at my
expense, doing their best to create the impression that ! am not a man to be
trusted. In thr.t connection I wish to make the following statement: I have
been engaged in business in Portland for the past five» years and I will pay
Scott & Hurley $10.00 for evidence o f a single instance ip my record where I
have ever wronged anyone or even taken an unfair advantage. I have had
dealings with practically every large'wholesale house in Portland and I will give
Scott & Hurley another $10.00 if they can find a single house that I have ever
dealt with that has ever had any occasion to question my honesty in any
Many Forest Grove people have complimented me on the manner in which
I have built the billboards. One hank official made the statement that he would
like to Bee them on every vacant piece of business property in the place. Sup
pose Scott & Hurley were given absolute power to sfty what might he built in
Forest Grove. Whenever a house or other structure or alteration o f any kind
might be planned, it wbuld be necessary to submit details to them for approval
o f the location, design and color. Property owners might consider it a serious
invasion o f their rights, but it would remove the possibility of anyone building
contrary to the ideaH o f Scott & Hurley and having to submit to misrepresenta
tion, mud-slinging and abuse, such as is being hurled at me.
If Scott & Hurley object to billboards, they are certainly free to say so,
hut I will not tolerate anyone trying to tear down niy reputation for honesty
and fair dealing under any pretext. I do not wish to be drawn into further
discussion with the News-Times and will not enter it if they adhere to facts.
Yours very truly,
