A SUBSIDIZED PRESS.
A new broom sometimes sweeps
clenn. Occasionally It only stirs up
The Prlncvlllo News, once Review,
seems bent upon dusting- despite the
avowed disapproval of somo of Its
financial backers. Of course the
cleansing Is to be along political
lines; there never yet was a new edi
tor In an old community who could
resist setting tho political world
aright. So even If Prlncvlllo folks
who understood they were going to
draw a paper that would boost their
town first, last and all tho tlmo seem
destined for disillusionment, it's nt
least posslblo some amusement will
It was generally stated that Mr.
Pollard was going to "show up" some
county affairs. Avowedly ho was
hunting the goats of certain offlclals,
when ho entered tho newspaper field.
nd now. In a homo grown cartoon,
the new spokesman of truth and vir
tue Indicates that poor old Crook
county Is laboring under the burden
of n subsidized press, which, presum
ably is protecting some oi mesu uu
clals. Isn't that awful- Trusting read
er, do you realize what hat means?
You, who have road Tho Bulletin, tho
Crook County Journal or tho Madras,
Pioneer havo been feeding your
minds upon tainted and Impure
news! Not only have tho sins of this
subsidized press been sins of commis
sion, but those of omission as well.
The cartoon In question pictures tho
bloated press (wearing a silk hat, it
you please!) suppressing "court
house news." In the shape of a cat
which It refuses to let out or the ba-r.
evidently because the "county court"
orders Its suppression.
To be shown up in this way Is ap
palling! Of course, since Judge
Springer has been telling folks what
he thinks of us, we've become rather
hardened to adverse criticism, but
our editorial heart does bleed for our
fellow offenders. Think of gentle
Editor Grey, of the Journal, or How
ard Turner of Madras! Consider the
disgrace of this exposure- Will they
ever contrive to set themselves right
with the constituency?
But here is one query.
The News Is evidently bursting
with Information. The rest of us
aro suppressing county court news,
he alleges. Now, by all means let
Mr. Pollard cut the cat out of the
bag. If ho has some stench to stir
up, some mud to sling, some scandal
to unearth, let him to at It. As wo
recall a recent campaign in which he
was an unsuccessful candidate for
county office, he Is experienced in
this sort of thing on the eve of elec
tion. Thus far the News has contained
about as much news as a bill of lad
ing, and as much cohrt house Infor
mation as a coroner's report. We
thrill with anxious anticipation while
we await tho righteous exposure, ap
parently promised. Incidentally, we
trust it may not be an exposure of
Tho News states that "County offl
clals have been making asiee of
themselves." Granted In part; for
many months we have remarked upon
the braying aslnlnty of the old Jack
leader. By Innendo, the News Inti
mates that one had better vot4
against the present sheriff, and wa
suppose the comment concerning
"holding offlce by divine right" Is
intended for Warren Brown. (So far
the News Is a trifle Indefinite.) Hos
tility to Commissioner Bayley Is
slightly less veiled. As O. Springer
Is not up for re-election, the endorse
ment of that worthy economist,
which otherwise would be Inevitable,
Is not forthcoming.
"Economy" la the watchword. High
taxes are deplored. At editorial ad
vice to tho erring voter, thero Is n
familiar ring to that sort of thing.
However, an exponent of stalwart In
tegrity like Mr. I'r.llard need not
concern himself with being original!
We only wish he would toll us
more specifically exactly how county
affairs should be conducted.
But onough. A closing paragraph
hum tlin nriltnrlnl in thn NftWB alone
need bo added; It Indicates, with.
some rnetortcai contortion, uisu uuor
all honosty doesn't matter If one can
get away with It! Here Jt Is:
"Voters, think! It Is not a matter
of whether our offlclals havo been
honest or dishonest as some seem to
think. It Is a matter of whether or
not good business Judgment has been

Oregon Itself Is still under discus
sion, though n somowhnt more limit
ed area than that covered by the
name when Daniel Webster refused
to tnko Btops to bring It nenror to
Boston. What would ho now say
could ho soo tho city that the flip of
a coin named Portland lustond of

Tho crop report publlshod olse-
whoro In this paper Is worthy of caro-
ful study by everyone Interested In
Oregon. SInco only two of the 14
Items relate to crops In tho goneral
acceptance of tho term. It might be
better to call It a stock report. And
It Is as such that It has Its chief In
terest. The condition of stock on April 1,
with tho wlntor Just over, Is a pret
ty good Indication of tho sort of wln
tor It has had to endure and tho loss
by exposure Is another. Orogon'a
figures on these two points stand up
well with those of the rest of tho
country, both as to the present year,
and In the 10 year avorage.
It Is In tho swine figures that tho
greatest dlfferonco occurs. Though
tho condition Is roughly tho same,

than In Oregon. Last year thoy
wero four times greater. That means
one big thing that Oregon swine en

Tho tabulation of taxes appearing
elsewhere In this paper, tells the
story for Crook county. In consid
ering It, there nro three things to
note. The flrst Is that In six yonrs
the amount of tax has Increased al
most four fold. The second Is that
percentage of Increaso Is approxi
mately the same each year. Tho
third is thit tho county conrt Is not
responsible for even half of the tax.
The first fact is startling and dis
quieting. One cannot but wonder
where we will be six years from now.
The second, while no special sat
isfaction, at least shows that no sud
den oxtravagance has developed, it
Is not the officials of this year, or of
any ono year, who are responsible
for a notably heavy expenditure.
The third Is well worth consider
ing, when we all are apt to blame
"high taxes" upon the county com
missioners. For It Is a fact thnt the
county court has to do with the ex
penditure of only -II per cent of all
the taxes collectable on the rolls of
1913. The rest of the taxes origin
ated from acts of the people (a
school levies) and from the state
authorities, as previously pointed out
In The Bulletin.
