Ono year $2.00 Blx months 1.00 Thrco months.., BO THURSDAY, FEBRUARY G, 1920 ARCHIBALD'S ANGER. " Apparentlr we touched a tender fipot When wo referred Inst 'week to overcharges mado by a local news papers for tho publication ot city notices, (or tho Btatement has pro duced a great sputtering and froth of words. Jt would be too easy to make ,fun of it all, to Josh about the new word "Inuendos," and tnko ad vantage, of tho many openings for jest that tho author's anger has left, It wouTd bo too easy and we shall not take that course. What wo shall do is point out that our friend reluctantly agrees that Tho Bulletin Is right in its statement that it does not receive $30 per month- for publishing tho county court proceedings. It is wrong again In saying that only The Bulletin knows what it has been paid for the service, this past year. Itemized bills arc onfllo in the county clerk's office where-they could have been seen If our friond had wished to discover tho truth. Wo would also point out that our friend admits our charge that it has collected from tho city more than it was entitled to collect for publishing certain notices. It admits the charge and says that it knew of it last sum jner. Next month, now that wo havo called the attention ot tho public to the fact, it will make restitution. , .So, far as Tho Bulletin is concerned lt'haa- never consciously over charg ed. If it does over charge the per 'pon Interested does not have to wait Klx.jinonths before receiving repay fc?enf. If it appears, as asserted by ' our friend, that we have overcharged the city at any time, which wo be llevo wo havo not wc arc not only willing, but able to repay at once. Our of tho angry welter of words to bo expected from one who had to admit that he was wrong, as in ' ' dlcated abovo, ono other matter ap pears. This is a statement that tho . editor of Tho Bulletin convinced i the city attorney that to comply with ( tho vlty charter certain noticos v should bo printed 10 times. This Is abnrefaced and shameful He. Neith er the editor nor any mejnber of The Bulletin stafT had anything to do with tho city order to run the notice. .in question 10 times. Plnallyr Tho Bulletin has not imsde any "attempted defense for not having printed the county court proceedings during the past six months." No defense was necessary. i vfne- proceedings have not been print ed because they were not furnished The Bulletin for printing. When they a'irro furnished, the publication waa begun in the first Issue possible. If our friend found such a dearth of news for its read er's that It nad to publish them in full in order to fill its pages there bulletin does not claim any especial ji'rtutor luVelf. It does try, hovfr SvoWjjto publish bows n.i wejl na county-court proceedings. ( "Women cn'gor for lookout Jobs In forest service," sayB newspaper ti end fine. 1'robably all unmarried and naturally on tho lookout, IN CONCLUSION. It is not tho purpose of Tho Bul letin', to v engage in any small town newspaper controversy. It has stead fastly maintained this position and will continue to do so. Moro than once In, tho past it has been lied Vbbut and has taken no notlco. An honest 'newspaper, like an Honest man, docs' not havo to protest Its honesty. Its batting average in tho truth docs not havo to bo figured. It la either 1000 per cent or zero. There Is no mVddlo ground, vich as is claimed for Itself by rf'local news paper whoso malicious mendacity" was mentioned hero on Saturday. Becauso ot tho very mallco of tho untruth The Bulletin has taken not Ico ot this latest attack. Attacks may be expected to continue. Wo think, however, that tho admissions already made by the newspaper in question, plus tho two letters printed below, indicate just how much credenco is to be given to Its statements. Wo aro therefore done with tho subject un less to acknowledge the apology tnat should be forthcoming. Tho letters referred to aro as follows: Bend, Oregon, January 31, 1920. Tho Bend Bulletin, Bend. Oregon. Gentlemen: "In a local newspaper I notice a statement which may bo taken to mean that somo ono connected with The Bulletin took up with mo and convinced me that certain city no tices had to bo published 10 times to satisfy the provisions of the city charter. I wish to stato that no ono connected with Tho Bulletin e.ver at any time discussed any such matter with me. My Interpretation of tho charter which led to 10 publications ot tho notlco in question was made without suggestion from Tho Bui letln In any way. shape or form. Truly yours, C. S.

Ji'iinor observed t lint certain persons were Immiiuo and discovered Unit a sort of vaccination was apparently re sponsible. Ho tried this vaccination on others and they wont not touched by the disease. Since his day tho scourgndlko character of smallpox linn disappeared anil In muny communities It has 'linen o.llmlpnted. Yacpluatlon li tho renson. , With this fact so well established ,Jl Is to be regretted that any should object to vaccination. It Is true that by falling to procure proper virus and by unclean and unsani tary methods some physicians have done bad Jobs. It In equally true that vaccination has almost dono away with smallpox nut so long m any remain unvacclnated they may tako tho disease nnd put expense on the community, or bo the meuus of Its spreading further. Somo say Hint they ore willing to have smallpox If the only way to avoid It Is by vaccination and auk why they may not be allowed to do ns they please, lotting the red of tho public avail Itself of the protec tion of vaccination. The answer Is that tho thing Is a matter In which the soclul order Is Interested ami for Its own protection must trout all alike. Society's relation Is much tho same as It wns to drink.
