to the article published in a re
cent Issue of tho Eagle Valley
News, written by Thos. Seigel
to the so-called "Rfob of Idlers."
Now this mob, as Patriotic Tom
calls them, was not a mob in any
sense of the word whatever. In
the first place it had been rumor
ed by the people of the Valley far
and wide that Mr.Seigel had some
men in his employ that objected
to having a flag railed at his
ranch on Daly Creek, threaten
ing to quit work if the Stars and
Stripes were hoisted.
After going to Richland and
having J. M. Johnson to call Mr.
o'eigel up on the phone, Mr. Sei
gel told Mr. Johnson to come
ahead and bring a good flag end
raise it, the same would be all
right with him.
The men went to the Richland
Drug Store and purchased the
best flag they could get, and on
request E. E. Holman and J. M.
Johnson went with them to Mr.
Seigel's ranch. On arriving at
the place, Mr. Seigel and wife
were at the front yard gate, and
we will state right here that
there was not an unmannerly
wcrd spoken in their presence.
We believe Mr. Seigel to be a
man pf his wprp), and as he was
bespattered with white flqur from
head to foot, Mr. Rinard 'and
others :.sl?ed him what he had
been doing and he replied "I've
been caching away seme flour."
We believe Mr. Seigel told the
Now Mr. Seigel state3 that Mr.
Schnau and Mr. Sass are doing
more to help the war along than
all the parties present. We don't
believe the same is true 'tis not
the "Almighty Dollar" that takes
a man to heaven.
He slated to the crowd that his
parents were both born in this
country and was contradicted by
We believe in the. Golden Rule:
"Do unto others as you would
have them do unto you."
Mr. Seigel says the so-called
mob was not represented by the
best citizens of the Valley. We
don't pretend to be the best the
pure and spotless but our hearts
are in' the right place. One of
the men present at' Mr. Seigel's
has, since tho so-called "dastard
ly act" was committed," volun
teered his services to Uncle Sam
by enlisting in the army.
Mr. Seigel states how ho has
helped the war in every possible
way. We don't deny this state
ment. He says his little children
sold their pet lambs to purchase
W.S.S. Now we have no pet
lambs, but we are working hard
by days' work to get the cash to
pay for our quota of W.S.S. and
Liberty Bonds. We also have the
food cards in our windows, and
belieVe us, wo comply with the
food rules to the letter.
Wo don't believe in Mr. Seigel
acting as spokesman for the
