WHAT IS THE MOTIVE OF THE TELEGRAM Many Believe That the Portland Paper Haa an Ax to Grind Every lasue of the Portland Tele gram contains an article written by one Henry M. Hmzen. The articles relate to the conduct of the apruce production part of tho U. 8. army. Hcnzen is a good writer and has placed bia atory bo.'ore the public in a readable manner. Tho tirat taai articles, which dealt with the short comings oi Ulsquo and his officers, people were In accord vith Haazen's expose or ideaa. The last several articles he has recently written do not, however, appeal to the public, for It appears, as many readers of the Mist have stated, that a syatema tic campaign waa being carried on to do way with the eight-hour day system and establish a ten-hour day. Whether or not the owners of the Telegram have told Hanzen to write the articles, the Mist cannot say, but from the opinion expressed In many quarters. It is apparent that the Tele gram has some ax to grind and ba choaen Hanzon aa the ax grinder. There are many in St. Helena who wonder why, if the Telegram had auch startling disclosures, that the readers of the paper were not given the benefit of such information while the nefarious practices which the Telegram intimates, were going on. Many friends of the Telegram do cot approve of the "post-mortem" examination and are guessing as to the real motive of that paper In pub lishing the news relative to the air 'plane production some eight months after they had the Information in hand. The Telegram should explain. EDITORIAL ASSOCIATION TO CHOSE ITS OFFICERS At their meeting In Seattle today the National Editorial association will chose officers for the ensuing year. The term of Guv TT Hnrrtv president and congressman from Colorado, has expired and the vice president oi tne association will, un doubtedly, be elected president. E. E. Brodie of Ores-on Cltv la ntlA nf rha candidates for vice president and he n&s a strong following and at the meeting In Seattle tonight it is thought that he will poll a large vote. The eastern members of the association are atrone for H. wtlba while the western members are sup porting uroaie. rne editor of the Mist left last night for Seattle, where he will try to help to elect a western man for this Important position. NEW MILL TO START EARLY IN OCTOBER The saw mill being constructed by the Island Lumber Company will be gin operation on or before October 1st.
