FRIDAY. JANUARY 13, 1906.
The Coarler'i lutxcrlption books and null
aij Hit arc open at all timet to tdvertlun,
wha may duln verification that thb piper hat
a larjtr circulation, both in Crania Pail and In
Josephine County than any other newspaper
published In this clfy.
The publisher of tne Observer io a
lengthy article )o the last issue has
endeavored to demonstrate, and evl-
dently does to liis own satisfaction,
that the Courier proprietor la I
sneak, and Implies that lie is a per
jurer in the spirit, and other naughty
things, the matter arising from
circulation controversy before the
Comity Court, and the appointing of
the Courier as the official connty
paper. The Observer man doobta the
sinoerity of the affidavits submitted
by the Courier, which is not to be
wondered at since Mr. Chaaese would
swear to something of which he had
no positive knowledge, as waa the
ease when he submitted an affidavit
to the County Court stating that the
Observer has larger number of bona
fide sobsciibara on its list residing in
Josephine county than any other
newspaper published In the county,
Later on Hr. Chausso made affidavit
that the Observer bad a "bona fide
yearly ciicnlation of 103 subscribers
In Josephine county" and the pub
litlier of the Conrier submitted an
affidavit that "the number of papers
distributed weekly to tubsciibera
Within the boundaries of Josephine
oounty la 102(1." Owing to the fact
that a portion of the names were se
cured by a paid solicitor who was
working by the day and had no Inceu
tlve to bring extra names, the Courier
proprietor could not swear that they
Were bona fide yearly subscribers, al
though they were to the best of his
knowledge and belief. Accordingly
an amended affidavit waa submitted
showing 873 bona fide yearly aub
epriberi residing within Josephine
soonty. These 873 names being per
soul who have been subscribers of
lobg standing to the Courier while the
remainder of thoso on tho Josephine
county list were the new names se
corrd by the solicitor, acme of whciu
bad not paid In advance, but all sub
acribera to the best knowledge of the
publisher of the Courier. The County
Conrt also had other means of asoer
talulug the oiroolation of the pamrs
of the town and decided that the
Courier reached a greater number of
readers than any other paper published
In the oounty.
In reference to an article published
In the Deoember 33 issue of the
Courier the Obaerver infers that be
cause we did not get the figures from
the Obaetver management we had to
resort to underhand methods. We
will state that we did not seek thia
Information from the Observer force
as might be implied, uelther did we
endeavor to create a "leak" in the
local oat office, but it waa secured in
a perfectly legitimate way, a way
nonirunn to all progressive news
papers, that of a house to house cau
vas by a solicitor, In which aiming
other queatloua cheerfully answered
by the occupants ot the various houses
was the number and uaiues of the
newspapers taken lu the family.
A perusal of the article ill question
will reveal tho fact that what it bhvs
ami what the Oliaerver tries to make
It apK'ar are at variance In at lewd
one Importnnt point, via: uo reference
is made to tho numlier of copies of the
OS rver distributed iu the (.Irants
Pars poat office, niauy of which go to
farmers aud thoiu residing outside of
town yet who get their mail through
the Orntits Past cilice, but simply to
the subscribers living within the eit.v
Mr. Chauaiw, iu his article, men
tious that a copy of the Courier list is
held by the Obaerver. This list will
no doubt, bo of value to tlieiu and we
note that it bus already come into
requisition as an aid iu the ai oiling
out of aample copies of the l b erver.
The Olwerver also utiles that the
oouuty printing amount to hut hImiuI
J5 a year. Ihia of courae muat be
aa error of the types, for judging
from the Instance of the arlicle the
Observer never would attempt to con
vey a wrong impreasioii. However,
the Observer's bill at the last term of
oounty court fer the county's aliaro of
printing the tai roll waa f I Ml Turn
