"Cowardice or Carping Littleness."

Editor Mail Tribune:
Mr. MulkcyV further contribution
to the Clay hearing, published in tho
Morning Sun, fails to explain his rea
son for injecting himself into this
enc nnd by cheap innuendo criticis
ing public officinls in discharge of a
most unpleasant duty.
Iteplving to Mulkey's personal al
lusion that I have muddled the pro
ceedurc in this case will say thnt
there has been no muddled proceed
ure in this office since the sixth of
Jnnunry. That the complaint filed
ngninst Mrs. Clay was In all re
spects regular and that upon the evi
dence nddueed she wns properly com
mitted to the proper institution; bnt
that the office of the district attor
ney hns no power or disposition to
suspend the right of appeal.
I submit that Mr. Mulkey ianotlhe
most competent individual to pass
upon technical legal proceeduro nnd
that if be.jvore, inrieir-of tEe-num-ber
nf criminals that escaped trial
through his muddled indictments while
in the office of district attorney, ho
ought to maintain n most discreet
silence on that subject.
The fact remains that Mr. Mulkey
after publicly declaring thnt the no
tion of this offico should be directed
against Mrs. Clay, and after furnish
ing reasons for such action, cither
through cowardice or carping little
ness attempts to cvado his share of
the responsibility therefor nnd to dts.
credit tho action of this offico nnd
the county court.
Mr. Mulkey need have no fear of
being shot, there is nothing about
him that anyone but the most c.xert
marksman could hit, save possibly his
conceit, nnd a few punctures in that
would be no grent public calamity.

Precipitation for the month of
June up to noon today was 1.94
inches, nearly twice the amount of
normal rainfall for the month at .98,
nnd placing 1913 n the list of abnor
mally wet months in Southom Ore
gon. The total precipitation for
June Inst year was 2.19 inches, a
quarter of nn inch more than has
fallen ho far this year.
In tho early hours of Thursday
morning one of the heaviest down,
pours of the year fell, totaling .35 of
an inch. Between six, ami Reyen.
o'clock the heaviest fall was noViee
nblo the drops spattering from the
pavements in tho eastern style.
According to Professor O'Oara tho
rainfall is a blessing o tho farmers,
fruitgrowers nnd stockmen. To tho
first nnmed, it means less irrigation
nnd cultivation, thus bringing a sav
ing in expenses, nnd insuring n tho
rough saturation nf the ground. To
the stockmen, it means a heavy
growth of grass on the rtwges. It
will also bring n heavy growth of
weeds, causing worry to the truck
gardener, and Street Commissioner
Owney Pntton in enforcing the anti
Bumper second and third crops of
nlfnlfn will follow the abnormal Juno
rains. The first crop cutting of al
falfa is out of the way, but the tim
othy ont hay did not faro so well,
much on the ground being highly
discolored. Cereals standing in tho
fields were not damaged by tho down
pour though pessimistic souls pre
dicted that tho standing grain would
be beaten down in the fields.
Indications point to continued
cloudiness nnd showers until the etui
of the week, with prospects of clear
weather by Sunday. A number of
street corner weather prophets pre
dicted that n wet summer would be
the order, with abnormal precipita
tion in July and August, and no au
tumn to speak of.
The wettest June was in 1900 when
3.79 inches of rain fell. Other de
cidedly rainy month of brides wero
1894 when 3.15 inches fell, 1898 with
2.30 inches, nnd 1012, the lowest of.
the lot with 2.10 inches.
On tho other extreme, thcro wero
two very dry Junes. In 1895 but .02
inches of rain fell and 1001 only .04
inchos. Tho weather records show
abnormally wet Junes wero followed,
in course, by ono just as dry.
