GILLIAM COUNTY'S LEADING HOME PAPER
VOL 29 v
CONDON, OREGON, FRIDAY. MAY 3, 1918
BRUCE HULL HAS
FOR TIMES' PIFF
Says Insinuations of Editor
Are Malicious and Carry
No Truth Whatever
- May lit. 1918.
CJitor Condon Globe: (
Laat wnk lh editor of tba Condon
Times in (It to raise a question u to
my patriotism so i im sending bun a
copy of the enclceed statement and ask
ing bim, at a matter of falrneea, to
give It apace, Inaamuch as tha question
in first raised by blm in bla paptr.
Bruce H. Hull.
To the Republican Voters of Gil
liam County, Oregon:
In protracted editorial in Uat
week's issue of the Condon
Timea, the editor took decided
exception to the Globe's favor
able mention of my canoidacy
for the office of County Clerk.
Regarding the imaginary chal
lenge which he ao eagerly accepts
I will not bother, for the Globe
will, I presume, be able to handle
ita own battlea. The unwsrrant
able attack upon my own patriot
Um, however, is a question which
I will answer myself.
By meuns of the drawing of
numbers in Washington and the
later classification of all regis
trants, the War Department of
our government has determined
the exact order of liability of
every man of military age. My
pntion in th rittfc is at the
bottom of Class 1. When the
government needs men now It
calls them, and when my call
comes I wili be ready and willing
to serve, in spite of the malicious
insinuations ot the Times editor
to the contrary. In the mean
time, if nominated and elected
to the office of County Clerk, I
will serve, not only to the inter
ests of the taxpayers of Gilliam
eounty, but will, by co operating
with the War Department in all
war work connected with
oluce, aiKO render our govern
ment a service in thin great crisis.
The editor also seems to be
worrying with the idea of a
"frame-up," and. well he might,
for the only "frame-up" of
which I am aware is the one fos
tered in his own malevolent mind.
In this case thu desire for "mud"
has been father to the thought.
The absurdity of such a state
ment is at once apparent, for
such a plot ea he suggests would,
of couree, necessitate a lack of
integrity on the part of eaflh
member of the County Court. ' ,
Remember, voters, real patriot
ism, in the full meaning ot the
word, ia not confined to the men
who come under the draft but is
an obligation upon any and every
man who has enjoyed the privi
lege of living under the Ameri
can government and any man
who is without family ties is
obligated to bear arms for his
country as strongly as la.the man
in Class I.. ...
Rest assured that when my
cal.l comes I'll be right there to
the best of my ability and when I
go there will be no "frame-up"
for I have full confidence in the
ability of the Allies to get the
Kaiser before my term would ex
pire and I would expect to return
to the Job myself. '
In conclusion let me say that
the insinuations in the Times'
. editorial last week were publish
ed for the Dumose of Doisonincr
me minas 01 me people ror a po-
, litical, not patriotic, "tt&son and
a I a 1 i ! m
