Tho Hnnnralilo Board of County
Commissioners, nt their regular Feb
ruary session took up tho matter of
tho otHc'ftl printing for tho County for
tho current term nnd thn contract for
same was awarded tho Editor of Tiik
Hkkau), ours being tho lowest and
best bid for the tame. This paper wo
alio designated as the ofllclal organ of
tho County, it being tho only paper
published In tho County Seat; every
where recognized as the leading paper
of the County and widely circulated
and known in all sections.
Without any crounds for complaint,
Tho Forgan Enterprise editor charges
the Hoard of County Commissioners,
unjustly, with showing favoritism to
ward The Herald This is not truo.
Bids, Sax tho County printing wero
called for by "the Board and all bidders

found to be lower than that of the
other bidders, and wu woro awarded
tho contract accordingly. Tho
Knowles Fanners News failed to Bub
rait any samples of material, although

for same, nnd bid on supplies in

few articles are ever ordered in thou

been justified In accepting The
News' bid, to say nothing of the
Inconvenience and unsatisfactory re
sults of ordering printing from a little
shop located thirty miles away and not
equipped to handle the work.
The feo for publ cation of the Com
missioners' proceedings and other
legal notices is provided for by statute
which plainly states what rates shall

in tho County Seat paper and hundreds
of them take it for that purpose. A
great roar would have gone up ,"d
justly had the Commissioners' design
ated some little sheet in a wayidde
community as tho ollicial county
The criticism of The Forgan Enter
prise was wholly unjust and without
foundation Just because it did not
land tho work Is not sufllclent cause
for attacking tho ollicial acts of the
Board of County Commissioner, all
members of which, democrats and
republicans alike, are honest, square,
conscientious men who have the cour
age and tho good common sense and
judgment to do their duty regardless
of political affiliation or personal
aggrandizement. Had Tiik Herald
been unfortunate In submitting a
higher bid, than our 'opponents, we
would surely not have taken the
Board to taste for awarding tho con
tract to another. They called'for tho
"lowest and best bid" for the work;
received it and awarded tho contract
accordingly. Does that look like
"playing politics" or guoa business
judgment? We call it the latter.
