The County Printing Controversy.
The Board of Supervisors at their meeting
wet week '-selected till) Press, Democrat ana
News of this city as two official papera and the
Hopklnton Leauer and Eurlvllle t'hu'llix as tlie
thlra official paper, l-her* eaa only be two offi
cial papers in the county seat town and if the
Board of Supervisors want to pass the pie around
the Herald'wouldn't mind a small slico.
The Herald is correct. Tbere was
jUBt as much warrant and authority for
giving the title, "official paper," to tlie
Herald, had that paper applied for the
same, and it was
justly entitled to
the title as was the Manchester Demo
crat. But the Board, on the Saturday
before having passed that three papers
in two papers" resolution under a mis
apprehension of the facts, waB iuclined
to let the record stand rather than re
consider their hCtioD, provided Mr. Carr
would give the written guarantee,
which he did, that the News shoulil re
ceive full compensation as an oilicial
paper, Jir. Carr in fact guaranteed also
but not In writing as before, that if the
Board would let the resolution stand he
would accept, as his compensation,
what was left after the
had taken
the full pay for one of the two oilicial
papers and the Press had taken the full
pay for. the other oQlciai paper. Great
title!!!—Delaware Uounty News.
The foregoing articles might be, all
light, if they were not largely untrue.
Somgtlihes a person
not to blame for
{Mating an untruth, because they relied
for their facts upon Bomeone else, and
that someone else misinformed anil do
celved them. Upon that ground Mr. Me
Cormick, of the Herald, is not to blame,
forhe says that Mr..^ounggavehiui the
a information upon which be based his
statements. We regret that as much
cannot be said in favor of Mr. Young.
His statement that Mr. Carr orally
guaranteed that he would accept as his
compensation whrft was left after the
News and Press had been pUd in full,
is a common, intentional falsehood. 1
Other words a bold unpardonable lie.
Bold, because so many know that it is
an entire fabrication. Mr. ltann knows,
and so states, that there never was so
.--much as a single word Bpokeri by Mr
Carr on the subject. And the same is
true in regard to Mr. tjtiles.'wtio acted
as Mr. Young's attorney at the meeting
inquestipn. There was no chance for
y- Mr.
as welt as Mr. Carr desired that 'the
Board's record should remain unchang
ed, Under these circumstances not
word was said on the subject covered
by Mr. Young's falsehood, and for that
reason it has not a Bingle pardonable
The following are the facts iu the
OH'the 10th inst. the publishers of
the Democrat and Press asked the
Board of Supervisors to designate the
three Manchester newspapers of gene
ral circulation iu the county, us uliiuial
newspapers, aud gave assurance that ii
their request was complied with the ex
pense to (be county would be no great
er than if but two were named. Their
reasons for making the request were,
we believe, commendable.
The "Board Proceedings'' are of Buf
licienc interest to require their publica
tion in all three of the papers iu ques
tion, whether designated as oilicial pa
persornot. Iu auy event all three uie
to a like expense iu connection wuh
this class of printing, aud ordinary busi
ness dealing, as well as good neighbors
conduct, would seem to call for tin
equal division of wbatevir compensa
tion the law allows. The law, however,
speaks of compensation tor but two pa
pers located ac a county seat, ana wia-n
tbere are three applicants there uiubt t,e
either a compromise or a contest.
Resolved that tbe Manchester Press,
Manchester Democrat aud Delaware
County News ue designated an two olli
cial papers for Delaware Uounty lor
1902, and that tbe Earlvllle Phoenix and
Hopklnton Leader be designated as Uie
third official paper.
Mr. Young was not satifiied with the
action of tbe Board, aud on the Hi'.ii
inst. he appeared before that body, with
Mr. Stiles as bis attorney, and tried to
bive tbe resolution of the loth inst.-set
aside, so that a contest might he entered
This move on tbe [art of Mr. Young
seemed to call for a contest or some
guarantee which would insure the valid
ity of tbe Board's record. Mr. Brouson
was out of tpwn, and without having
ah oppoitunity to consult with him, the
juoitr member of tbe Qrm did nnt\feel!
warranted in obligating either the Dem
ocrat or. tbe firm of Branson & Carr for\
Mr, Young's benefit. Neither did he
feel -liker
into any entangling guarantee with a
quarrelsome neighbor. In these print
ing mattera-Mr. Rann has never acted
hoggish or unneigbborly and for that
reason was entitled to consideration.
In the absence of his,partner, the jun
ior publisher of the Democrat acted in
bis individual capacity. To secure peace,
and without obligating anyone bu.t him-1
Belf, he gave the following guarantee
to buttress the'record Wtyoh- he had
asked the Board to make:. I
This agreement made this 16th day
ot January, 1902, by and between E. M.
Carr and D. 11. Young, witnesseth:
That, "whereas the Baid D. II. Younpr
makes some question as to the meaning

Board'of Supervisors relative to the ap
pointment of the oilicial county papers
of Delaware County, Iowa, for the year
1902. Therefore in consideration of the
premises, and in order to avoid any
question or ieeal contest, 1 the said IS.
M. Carr. do herebv atrree and warrant
to the said D. H.Young, that,'if he FO
desires, he shall receive SB the publisher
of one of the said official papers of the
said county the full compensation for
the county prlntine to which he would
be entitled if there were but two ollirial
papers appointed in the ritv of Man

papers In Manchester aud the matter was llnully
settled by the Press and mucriU agrecum to

amount of their customary share.—Manches

This guarantee was Rati fiotory to
the Board, but not to Mr. Young, who
left the room mntterine threats against
the man who had prevented him from
having his much i'eBired brawl.
Not a word was s&id about an oral
euarantee in favor of Mr Rann, similar
to the written guarantee given Mr,
Yountr, for Mr. 'Rabn was as ttfuch:.re
sponsible for the Board's record as the

How Long Will It Take History 'To
Repeat Itself?
During the llrst three decades of the
Kith century the Spanish government
pursued a policy of cruel conquest in
the New World Cortez WBB sent to
Mexico and in his mad lust for gold he
practically exterminated the Aztec race,
a peaceable but remarkably accom
plished aud intelligent people. During
the last decade of the 19th century the'
power of Spain vanished from the
Western Hemisphere. Its iaBt frag
ments went'down befofe the tirOadsiues
oi the Brooklyn and the Oregon, as.
they trembled on the waves at Santi
ago. In Spain's case the .thills of the
gods ground slowly, but they ground ex
ceedingly line.
And now, during the first years, of
the 20th century, the legions of Great
Britain are .down in South Africa, ex
terminating as brave and" christain
a people ao ever lived on this earth.

the District Court of this county, had
ie courage to exercise the right given
him by law to select an assistant in bia
otlice, without usking tbe consent, or
evorr'conBulting the leader, gf the repub

GJorgen is responsible for.the proper
discharge of tbe duties of the ollice,
aud, uot being versed in the partisan
party management,, be^no doubt
thought that he,.aa an ofjiclai, was sim
ply an employe.of the.people aud that
he eutrht to work for the best intereB's
of his employers. While he may, and
we presume is, still of that .opinion,-he
now knows to a certainty that his party

other ollicials of their party to work

not imagine what they would be. Tne

newspapers, for printing controlled bj
the Board of supervisors, auiouiueU in
the aggregate to S3lO.oli. O-ie-half oi
this sum would be $155.28, aud one-thi ru
would be $103.52, aud tne difference
between a half aud third would only
amount to $31.76. A reasonable man,
even if he had no regard for the puulic,
or the expense he would entail upon
the county, would not engage in a trial
of the magnitude of one of these news

lind any honorable way to avoid it.
The publishers of the Press aud Demo
crat have been for several years in lavor
of an equal apportionment of this
county printing among the Manchester
papers, on a neighborly and amicable
basis. The Board of Supervisors viewed
