Affidavit, Signed by ShcrllT nntl Com-

PR1NEVILLE. May 10. That the
ofllcera of Crook county nre, for once,
nit united, nml nre unanimous In
their opinions upon an Important
tiintlnr. lit nvlilr.nl In nnvono who
makes even the most casual Inquiry
around tho court house. Tho matter
upon which they agrco so beautiful
ly Is this: Tho Hon. 0. Sprlngor.
Judge of Crook count-. Is moro of n
liability than nn asset to said conn
ty. Some simply refer to him as a
nuisance; others employ language
that a modest newspaper would blush
to repeat. ,
Mr. Springer, it appears, has, to
a great degree, endeavored to take
upon himself the individual conduct
of all the affairs of the county. It
has been his open boast that the de
plorably Inefficient and wasteful
methods employed in tho several of
fices would bo remodelled and re
formed under his cnltghtenod admin
istration. While tho Utopian results modest
ly predicted by His Honor are not
as yet apparent to an uninformed lay
man, ono result of his action is quite
apparent, to-wlt: every officer Is
heartily '"'down on him" for his In
terference In affairs outsldo the nor
ninl province of his work, and In
-which, it is freely stated, he bos
neither tbo common sense nor the
business experience to venture. Just
-what the results of this mutiny will
lie one cannot as yet predict.
Said He Oppcctl Anto.
One matter that evidently has
stuck In tho crop of his fellow mem
bers of tho county court is the state
ment of Judge Springer regarding
the automobile recently purchased by
the county for tho sheriff's use. Ills
Honor wont on record as being on
posed to the purchase of the ma
The following is extracted from
one of his several letters to The Bul
letin that dated March 19:
"The county auto I would not at
present have ordered. The heavy
bills of the sheriff for auto hire, al
lowed, at the term Just closed, were
Tor set vices performed under the di
rection of the commissioners with
out my 'knowledge. - As the 'district
attorney considered them legal and
as many -of our substantial taxpay
ers are especially Interested, I al
lowed the bills."
In reference to this letter, and
general statement and implications
of Mr. Springer that he was always
opposed to the auto purchase, and
that, in effect, it was "railroaded
through" on him, the following sworn
affidavit will bo of interest. Signed
by tho auto agent, tho sheriff and the
two county commissioners. It shows
conclusively that Judge Snrlner was
Thoroughly acquainted with the de
tails of tbo auto purchase, and al
ways favored It. The statement is
being published here In Justlco to
the other members of the court, upon
-whom soma measure of odium seems
to have been cast by the statements
of Its Judge, which at least havo ini-

that said members, net being famil
iar with the great number of makes

That nt the regular March terra

by such a method tho Hayncs modol
was selected by tho said Willis W.
Drown and R. II. Davlcy, that said
decision was immediately and
promptly communicated to tho slid
G. Springer and it was thereafter un

that the Haynes model, selected in
such a manner was to bo purchased
by the county of Crook and the
proper orders and Journal entries
were to be made by the court and the
clerk bo Instructed to Issue warrant
in payment for same; that tho said
G. Springer neglected to have the
