With This Issue
With this issue of the lone
Journal we lay down the editor
ial mm for a time. About two
yean ago in April we landed in
lone one Sunday afternoon to
take active management of the
Bulletin owned by L. K. Harlan,
of Heppner. After running the
Bulletin for several weeks we
learned that Mr. Harlan was fig
uring on removing his plant to a
more DroSDerouB fteld the busi-
at that time waa not bringing ui
enough cash to pay expenses.
A few d'ayi afterwards several
of the local business men spoke
to us about starting a new paper
provided Mr. Harlan was still in.'
the notion of leaving lone with-.
out any paper. As aeon as it be-
came known for a fact that the
Bulletin was going to withers,
W. H. Cronk -came to us with an;ever torun agajn

mt jinother Dlant and stort a'eriPtion J doubted my ability to

time that we were not able to;wnW near " food as theHt
buy a new plant because unfor- tle Ione Bulleti'n. At that time
seen expenses had exhausted , 1 netood that an offer of $100

have in mind.
He stated that he and Bert Ma
son would see about it and let
- me know. This was about the
first part of May' 1914.
In a few days Mr. Cronk came
. to see me and stated that they
(meaning himself and Mason)
- had been to Heppner and made
the deal for what was known as
.'the old Times plant '
My understanding was th,at
the plant would be shipped at
once to roe at lone. Matters

By doing this he could drive
Mr. Harlan whom he seemed to
hate) from the Ione field. L
Before he left Te assured me
that the plant would be shipped
at once and I could use it as long
as I wanted it and in case I de
sired to purchase, a reasonable
price would be fixed and small
payments accepted until the out
fit was paid for. or in eaae I
wanted to lease it, a reasonable
rental would be fixed. In case
I found that a sew plant could

verbal and was understood both
by Mr. Crawford and myself as

In a few days the printing out

came to my view I realized that
friend Crawford was a gxd and
true man like unto our friend
George of historic times, who
never told a lie. He had indeed
told the truth but not all of it as
I was to find out later.

Then, I realised what kind of

the time it came to me 'that seme

a "bum steer" for Bill told m0
that Crawford was the "squaresf

then went on and told me about
Mr. Crawford's being; such a
godly man, why says Bill "He
praetially runs the church and I
know he'll do you good" and af
ter thinking the matter over we
realise that . Bill must have had
inside information. -About
June we received a very
stem letter from our devout and
godly friend, Mr. Crawford and
in It be stated that he must have
his $660 by July 10. After bust
lisg around we secured $76 and
left for Heppner and paid it to
Mr. Crawford receiving in return
his receipt showing a balance of
$676. but no contract yet. .
Matters, ran along evenly un
til Mr. Crawford moved to Ione,
at that time the matter of a con
tract was again mentioned to him
by ma and he told me to make
up Sr list of the stuff and to in
clude' everything there was in
the office and he would have the
contract made out at ones and
sea if the Bank af Ione wouldn't
loan him the money on it He
impressed upon me the import
ance of including everything I
had, aa be explained he wanted
to make a good showing to the
Bank Directors when be soplied
for a loan. However, when the
list was made out my stuff was
not Included and the contract
was made out without II.
This contract is still in the
hands of Brother Crawford aa
far aa I know.
Early in March, 1916, Brother
Crawford called at the Journal
office and asked ua to come over

would eonsent to boy what saat-
erisi I had and pay bm 1175; My
two years work and business was
not considered worth anything.
- That evening while talking
the matter over with a friend he
made an offer to give his note at
the bank for two roars or for me
to get another signer, the both
to give a one year note. Satur
day afternoon both of the good
sound business men and myself

As we left the bank together one

er Crawford for some unknown
reason did not want us here and
took this unfair method of get

times has. he said that the field
was only, largo enough for one

and controled by himself. We
leave this city for somewhere,
