Under the above head Sen.
John Schnitzler, of Froid, the
owner of the Schnitzler Cor
poration,
Froid State Bank, and the
Culbertson State Bank, in an
ad published some hope dope,
and a tirade against some
body as follows:
'"nie scandal monger and
calamity howler is persistent
and grows bolder in his resist
less attitude, and we are forc
ed to set the Heel of Truth up
on the Viper's bead and crush
him into silence."
These ads were published in
all of the papers in Roose
velt and Sheridan counties
except The Prolckicers News,
the only paper with a circu
lation, It was a nice piece f
business for these fortunate
papers.

in an editorial that Schnitz
ler, who seems to be worried
about our institutions, had the
Producers News in mind when
he vomited up his venom. But
that paper often goes off half
cocked. A couple of other
papers
to the ad, but mentioned
names.
John, who signed the statev
John W. Schnitzler,

M
ment as

in big black type; _
"THE FIRST STATE BANK
OF FROID CAN AND WILL
WHEN CALLED UPON PAY
EVERY DEPOSITOR IN
FULL. UPON.. TEN DAYS'
NOTICE, CAN THERE BE
GREATER SECURITY?"
This is interesting and re
assuring.
We have read the statement
and will say that it all de
pends on John—whether he
protects the public or himself:
The bank's cash .reserves don't
quite equal the Schnitzler Cor
poration deposits—if he should
£et shaky himself, but forbid
the thought! John organized
the Schnitzler corporation just
to protect the people.
If things are as John says.
and he is able ; will and can do
what he says, why all the big
noise? Why not just demon
strate and let it go at that .
That would be a knockout to
the "Viper."
The money in the Schnitzler
Corporation, and the cash m
the bank we take it, is the
same .money. We wonder if
John can borrow money on
farm land and machinery
notes.
We know a number of peo
ple who can't.
TTiis may be pertinent and
personal hut John raised the
issue. We will discuss the mat
ter further if he feels talka
tive.

Wheat marketing information

Two hundred farmers received
Farm Account Books through this
office during the early part of
1930. The adoption of the practice
of keeping Farm Accounts has.
been gradually increasing the past
three years. Farmers are realizing
more and more the necessity of
keeping a systematic system of
records, which is a very important
point in the management of the
farming business.

'.'I know that my books contain

America," Lewis said, "but is there

Bowler, two notorious rues, did not
publish the axaminers report but
did publish articles and editorials
containing wantonly Kbelous ma
terial about Editor Taylor, The
Producers News and S. R. "Nig"
Collins, and attacking the report
of the examiner as of being influ
enced by Sen. Taylor an<j therefore
unbelievable and malicious.
Taylor Surprised
Sen. Taylor, in an interview with
The Producers Nèws said: "I am
surprised at the articles in the
mainstreet papers. In one issue I
am down and out and discredited
and of no influence whatsoever, in
the next issue I am able to influ
ence the public examiner and the
state public examining department,
coerce the governor and wrap the
entire state administration around
my finger for the purpose of
ligning the republican administra
tion of Sheridan county. The ab
surdity of the allegations are
sufficient answer. Suffice it to say.
that I have never met Examiner
Risley. I would not know him if
saw him. He never called at my
office or the Producers News of
fice. He is not a member of the
Farmer-Labor party, nor any radi
cal organization that I know about
but is, I presume, a good demo
crat. as he holds an appointment
at the hands of Gov. Erickson.

any collusion between Mr. Risley
and myself is pure unadulterated
moonshine, and is put out to dis
credit Mr. Risley with Gov. Erick
son, and the state administration
officers who may be prejudiced a
gainst me. The idea is to discredit
Mr. Risley and secure his dismiss
al if possible, by persuading his
superiors that he is a friend of
mine..
" Mr. Risley may play golf. I do
not know. If he does that is not a
crime that I have heard of. I know
nothing about Mr. Risley's qualifi
cations, no rhis peculiarities as I
have never meet him. In fact nev
er heard his name until I saw it
on the report. He may be a drug
gist and bald headed, if that is
relevant in any way. I don't know.
If, however, I had had any influ
ence with Mr. Risley, I should
have secured the report as soon as
it was out, for it would have been
very useful in the campaign. If I
had any idea that the report was
out for sure, I would have wired
for it. As a matter of fact I thot
that the report wa sbeing held up
by the public examiner for the
'benefit of the Sheridan county re
publican machine. The ridiculous
ness of these insinuations should
be apparent to the most stupid,
land this thing alone is sufficient
j to discredit every word in the
Wave article, which is a tissue of
falsehoods from beginning to end,
as baseless in every other part as
in that part hanging me on to Nig
Collins' dope.
"The part of the story about me
and "Nig" Collins is a baseless lie.
I. or the Producers News, never at
any time, in any manner or in any
place, ever receive one cent from
"Nig" Collins, directly or indirect
ly. Nor have I ever paid "Nig"
Collins a cent for any thing, di
rectly or indirectly. I have never
been on his premises, nor has he
ever directed or influenced the
policy of The Producers News.
Now Joe Dolin nor Frank French
canot say this—for I am told that
they have spent plenty of money
in "Nig" Collins' place in their
wild lascivious and disgraceful ca
reers.
Notorious Libertines
'"Joe Dolin, Burley Bowler and
Harry Polk, all notorious liber
tines connect "Nig" Collins with
me for the purpose of discrediting
me with the good people of Sheri
dan county, in order to discredit,
if possible, anything that the Pro
ducers News may say about them.
I have said, "Nig" Collins is just
as good as those who persecuted
him for political purposes, just as
good as some of the so-called re
spectable people of Plentywood, af
filiated with churches, who have
been out with the same girls and
others under 16 years, some of
which men are or have been offi
cials of this county. Somehow, 1
believe that the law was made fur
these people as well as for "Nig."
I never could entertain the idea of
putting one man in jail while per
haps worse offenders go
free" and I don't think anyother
honest, good citizen can either.
"Nig" Collins was jailed on per
jured testimony procured by Oscar
Collins, Grant Bakewell and Ted
Winters, aided and abetted by oth
ers worse than
would not pay them hush money.
Hot Stuff Coming

and this paper—also a very juicy
story from Scobey involving a bos

suppressed there. Until these stor
ies are ready that is all wè have to
say in that regard.
Will Answer Wave
"In future articles, the defense
of the Sheridan county adminis
tration by tho gangster sheets will
be answered item by item.
"However, I call attention to the
fact that the Wave or the other
defenders of the Frank French and
the other county officials did not

"Chapter 81, Session Laws
of the Twentieth Legislative
Session, A. D. 1927.
"Section 1. Upon the receipt
of the état« examiner's report
covering the examination of
the affairs of any county, it
shall be the dluty of the board
of county commissioners of
such county, to have such re
port entered and made a part
of the minutes of the next
regular meeting of such
boadd; provided such report
shall not be published by the
board of county commissioners
as a part of the minuates of
its proceedings. Provided, fur
ther, that the state examin
er shall* at th etime such ne
port of examination is for
warded to the county com
missioners, send a like copy to
the official newspaper of the
. county for publication. Such
publication shall be had once
in the official
forthwith, and shall be a
charge against the county at
the same rate as provided for
in the contract for county
printing for proceedings of
the county commissioners.

"The law is specific. It does not
provide for any delay or holding
up for a revised report or anything
else.
"I am told, the officials and
their defenders say that there will
be a revised report. October, No
vember and December have elapsed
and there is none yet, and it is
my opinion that there will not be
any such report
Examiner's Pay
"These men, offended at the re
port of the state examiner expos
ing the rottenness in Sheridan
county try to make it appear that
the examiner draws fabulous fees
from the county and cities for ex
amination. This is another act
of confusing by insinuation and is
false entirely. The state law pro
vides what each county according
to classification, and each munici
pality must pay into the public ex
aminers' fund to defray the ex
pense of examination. The exam
iner does not get the mony. He is
hired at a regular annual salary
and is allowed an expense account
while on the road in the perform
ance of his duty. This fee goes to
the support of the examiners de
partment. It does not make any
difference whether it takes a day,
a "week or a month to make the
examination, the fees are set and
the same: they are paid to the
state treasurer and not to the ex
aminer. The examiner's fee was
another red; herring dragged
across the trail of a bunch of cor
rupt officials and is made up of
the same tissue as the rest of the
defense.
"Again, the Sheridan county of
ficials are indicted by officials of
their own party; officials who are
