IN DEFENSE of his letter promising protection to the
keeper of (ho Htv's solitary divo in exchange for her
testimony in the Millar trial, City Attorney HoggH, in a
public letter, asserts:
With reference to titer letter published In tho ciUortl Mult Trbtino
Rnttiriidny, Mnrch 38, I have to say thnt nny Inwycr or nny layman who
will give, the matter a moment's consideration know thnt them la a dif

I did not pimlQ Immunity to tho nroprletorria of th lloyal room In

against this houso an qtilcHIy as possible.
"Propriotoross" is good. .It. requires a word all its
own to fit the occupation and the resourceful city attor
ney has met tho emergency.
In the subtle reasoning of (the official, there is a vast
difference between immunity and protection yet to all
intents and purposes ho has given the "proprictoress" an
immunity bath protection from police interference and
immunity to operate.

of confining evidence to the charge, tho City Attorney is
trying to prove that ho sold liquor in his restaurant to
minors. "Why not try him upon this charge f Why
besmirch his reputation with one charge ami proceed to
prove a matter outside tho charge?
If liquor was bought by minora, why not help stop tho
illegal proceedings by arresting the minors tilso, who are
breaking the law just as much as the liquor dealers' Yet

forced impartially. It does not believe in converting law
enforcement into a political game to punish opponents. Tt
does not believe in promiscuous inummitv baths to " pro

Xo Storms Herr.
To the Editor. Dear Sir: I havo
noticed for quite a good while that
every tlnao, we Have a little rainfall,
or a few flakes of snow are wafted
Into our little valley, or the wind
Btlra up a little dust In our streets,
that you call It a storm. Pardon mo,
but I do not think these favors of
I'rovldeneo should be classed as
storms. You see The Mall Trlbuno
goes to tho northwest, tho middle
west, onst, south end then some; and
people In these countries who rear
theso tsorni Items In your paper will
very naturally compare them to tho
real storms they have In their own
countries, and will say woll, It they
have storms In souibern Oregon, J
will stay away from there.
I havo resided In Medford for
nearly five years and, honestly, I
havo never seen anything like a
storm of auy kind hero yet; really, It
makes an easterner smile to hear
pcoplo here talk about storms In tho
Iloguu River valley. The llttlo wind
that wo havo here sometimes would
not bo a gentle breeze back cast, up
In tho northwest or middle. we3t
whero they do havo storms. Onco in
a while, frequently, rain, hall, sleot,
snow and wind that uproots great
trees; takes houses, barns and other
buildings from their foundations and
spreads them over tho surrounding
landscape, and very often all of these
Join forces and como together with
an accompaniment of thunder and
lightning; then it is some Interest
ing. No, wo don't have any storms la
southern Oregon, none whatever, Mr.
Editor, aud it you will allow me T
-would suggest that tho word storm
be left out of tho weather reports for
this part of tho country. Youis

To (he Editer: Dear Fir 1 read
with interest your article exposing
tho publishers of the "Ccntentinl
History of Oregon," and how they
victimited many of your citizens. I
handed titc article to the Moniiag
Democrat hero and they republished
it I enclose that article. alo a let
tcr thnt I wrolo for publication in
tho snrao paper here. As far as wo
Itnvc been able to leant the company
delivered but three volumes in east
ern Oregon ns comprising the set,
nnd they now make the flimcy ex
planation that volume fottr had noth.
itlSt to do with cntern Oregon, nnd
as the contract provide for but three
Volumes, wc were entitled to bat
three; but they forgot that nt tho
time the solicitors were ictimizing
the public that they cxprestly stated
thnt they were unable to state how
many volumes it would take to com
plete the set (containing the names
of victims), nnd that if it required
more than three volumes thnt the
(subscriber would get ail there was
coming to him. Thou spenkest well,
my I.ord, nye, we got more thnn was
comings we got part of n set of
books that, outxide of the binding of
n few stray facts, were entirely dif
ferent from the representations made
by tho solicitors. There, for in
stance, is a lengthy biography of
Job Smith (we will say), who came
hero in tho early sixties nnd by bis
tireless energy made Oregon what it
is today by r.dsing hogs nnd chew
ing "terbneker." Then there is Sn
mauthn Jones who lives in Ilingvillc
now, who came here juhtt after tho
war (with her husband) another pa
renthesis: (She did not have n, war
with her husband, but sho in com
pany with her hu-dminl came here to
gether nrter tho war presumably
the war of the rebellion.)
I don't remember if it savs nnv-
thing ele of importance about Sn-
tnnnUia, but anyway she came here,
nnd ns she promised to pay the twenty-five
bucks for the privilege of
having her mime enrolled among the
stung, of course she had to have her
nnmo recorded, so that the public
generally could at nil (imcs have free
access o the great nrmy of easy,
mark. Now, here ns in and around
Medford, there nro n number of peo
ple wlin resent the insinuation (in
sinuation U correct,) that they are
as easy as they look, so ninny of ns
havo not paid for the work. I think
work is proper, for it filH in so
nicely with worked; so I refer to the
set ns the work of frnttls, nor do
we intend to voluntarily pny for hav
ing our names enrolled in the work
of easy-marks unless the courts (a
plnco wherein justice is done) com
Hsls us to come hither with twenty
five hard-earned simoleons..
Were it not that many people in
your vicinity of good intentions nnd
honest inclinations nre suffering
grcut mental anguish, believing that
they nro tho only ones in Oregon who
hnvr lent themselves to the wile of
a bunch of frauds, I would not pen
these lines to you; but feeling that
it may in some meagre, alleviate their
sorrows this letter is written to you
