" 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.

such a dearth of news for its read

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

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.

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
