In the last issue of the Herald Com
missioners Green and Knott are treated
to a lampooning because Uiat paper was
not given the county printing. A few
weoks ago when the name of the preseat
editor first appeared at the head of the
columns of that paper he stated in bis
"salutatory" that he would not stoop to
mud-slinging. All went well for a few
weeks unw that paper failed to get the
county printiug aud then the two old
members of tlie board were attacked by
tlie Herald, and tlie argument used was
tlie same as has always been the policy
of Uiat paper and consisted chiefly of
Within leas than the twelve months
last last that pujier has been under four
ilifl'orent editors, all but one of whom
used the same tactics and that one who
was the exception remained as editor but
a few weeks, and it is clearly indicated
that no matter whose name appears as
editor of the Herald, the management
and control of the iaper is in the same
bauds that it always has been. That pa
per must have a light on its hands or it
cannot live. The only demand for its
existence is to keep up a turmoil, to the
detriment of the town, the county and
the general prosjiej-ity.
Tlie Herrld generously offers space for
onimissioner Knott to explain his ac
tion in, but that gentleman, on reading
the article in the last issue of the Herald
simply remarked, "That shows who
owns the Herald."
