FEDERAL UNION OF LIVINGSTON ASKS'
COUNTY COMMISSIONER FOR ACCOUNTING
(The follwing communication
from the Federal Labor Union of
Livingston to the county commis
tioners, was refused publication by
the Livingston papers. In a letter
accompanying the comimunication we
are asked if' there are any reasons
why it should be refused publication.
Our answer is that the Bulletiu, be
ing an independent newspaper, serv
ing no interests but that of honest
people, can see no reason why the
communication should not be pub

'Woodrow Wilson--Consummate Hypocrite
President Wilson is a word-jug

vent to the most rythmnically beatific
language and stray as remotely from
the facts as any public figure of our

to dub biiii a conscious hypocrite.
His may be a case of incurable self
hypnosis--a habit of amiable preva

Whatever the explanation, the fact
remains that Woodrow Wilson in his
speeches in Europe has uttered more
contemptible lies than any healthy
centipede has legs. His orations in
every instance are burdened with a

One is certain that it is accepted with
a liberal grain of salt by his con

Consider, for instance, Wilson's

starts by denying the allegation that
America is a highly materialistic na
