BUSINESS MEN OF THE CITY
ARE REQUESTED TO MAKE ANY
INVESTIGATION THEY PLEASE A3
TO THE ACCURACY OF THESE
FIGURES. THE BOOKS OF THE
BULLETIN ARE OPEN TO THEM.
When the Advertiser and Star will
publish the sttec-t sales uf their re
spective papers, thereby giving tho
business men of this city n complete
lnow ledge of the total sales of these
waning oigans, then the lltillvtin will
urge upon all newsdealers to glvo out
tho sales of this paper to any one who
may apply. Bulletin, August 7.
The. only answer the Advertiser has
to this honest proposition Is billings
Bate and braggadocio. IT OFFERS
NO FIGURES. The Evening Eclo
doesn't even peep. The proposal Is
still open. Bulletin, August 8.
