predion of tin) 0dltorl.1l policy or
attitude of thtt pa per Is in tho ed
itorial column. And .my Interested
person may accept till statement a
mean log exactly whst the words Nay
We are prompted to ay them be
cause of certain statement that The
Herald Is allied with tint chamber of
commerce In a campaign of propa
ganda to advance tho intertill of
the Southern Pacific In the railway
Such criticism I unwarranted
'and doubly unfair. It l unfair to
this paper and unfair to the cham
ber of commerce.
The contents of the news columns
of any paper and it Is so of this
paper cornea from many source.
We endeavor, as far as humanly
possible, to print the facts. State
ments made by Individuals or organ
isations, through their representa
tives, are credited to the authors of
In the news columns we endeavor
In every Instance exactly to Identify
tho source of overy statement on
controverts! topics, so that the In
telligent reader may gaugo the mo
tives behind It and weigh it accord
ingly. We know of no fairer way to open
up matters of public concern to
public discussion. It both parties
to the dispute arc honest In their
convictions, they will avail them
selves of tho opportunity to lay their
arguments before the public. If
one, or both, should misstate mat
ter that are or common knowledge,
the Intelligence of the readers will
quickly nail the falsehood. Should
one party fall to challenge a reason
able argument of the other, his
failure b entitled 1 be considered
a reflection of fear that ho cannot
successfully controvert the truthful
assertion of his adversary.
In carrying out this policy wo
open our news columns, without
price and without condition except
that the sourco of ? all statements
which we do not know of our own
knowledge to bo true be clearly
Identified, to a great deal or matter
.raafla not pertinent, and possibly
for that reason misleading.
nut It Is the reader's privilege,
and bis responsibility, to estimate
the truth and pertinency of all states
meats. In other words we can fur
nish our critics material upon which
to exercise their reasoning powers,
but we 'cannot control the degree of
reasoning that they individually ap
ply. We arc uitlto willing to share our
opinion of the railway dispute with
any one who Is Interested, as fur at
.that opinion la formulntd.
We do not Relieve that It Is to
ihu best Interests of Klamath coun
ty to take any side In fbls matter.
The Issues are. so Involved, the ef
fects will be so far-reaching, that It
would puttie the wisest to decide ut
this minute the course that will beat
serve our future destiny.
This opinion Is opposed to the
findings of the chamber of com
merce cemmittee: but we know
them as honest men, and believe
them to be honest In tbelr conclu
sions. If they are In error, or If
they do not represent tho sentiment
of the majority, time will rectify
The Klamath community, by vir
tue of the traffic It can furnish, Is
entitled to transportation service.
It seems to us that Instead of re
lying upon any carrier to fulfil tho
obligations Imposed upon them aJ
corporations operating In the pub
lic 6ervlce that we should luslst,
upon that serlce as a matter of
right, It it Is our right to have It.
The Interstate commerce commis
sion Is representative of all the peo
,ple, certainly empowered, and pre
sumably competent, to decldu tho
question as to which sjstom cuu
lwat. most expeditiously and most
economically, give us tho service we
require, and tho manner In wblch
It should be given.
And -we 1 not believe that ap
peal to toe Interstate commerce
commission on any other than such
cqultnblo ground ni this will In
