BYRON TIMES EXPLOITS
CONTRA COSTA COUNTY
Editor Omits Glowing Eulogy to
Present Cold Facts
The wealth of Contra Costa county
in its various forms, together with its
agricultural and manufacturing ad
vantages, is outlined in the . second
booster edition of the Byron Times is
sued yesterday.
It T. Hammond, the editor and "pro
prietor, who for- 19 years worked in
the composing room of -The Call, has
gathered a mass of valuable data re
garding the county, which, apart from
Its interest to prospective investors and
those who live in the county, is of ex
ceptional value from a statistical
standpoint.
The edition is the second of its kind
issued by Hammond.. It is put.to
gether in magazine style, profusely il
lustrated and deals with «v«>ry conceiv
able industry of the -community. A.
epecial feature of the contributions is
that they are \u25a0 from the ; pens of . men
who are peculiarly fitted by experience
to deal with their respective- subjects.
So replete is the publication, with the
cold facts and colder figures that ; the"rr
has b«en no space for the "boosting";
articles somewhat common to. publica
tions of this character.
"In preparing the; following .. stat*
m'nt," writes';, the editor.. ''the gjowing
eulogy which in articles of this na
ture too frequently "takes the place -of
facts; shall be omitted;. or_. lf ..eulogy.;
there be, it shall. be"secondary, and onlj*

and to answering the thousands of let
ters and telegrams of congratulation
which he has received. He said yester
day that ho had given no time to
thought of his future plans, and was
not in a position to make any declara
tion as to what official acts he would

upon Johnson, and* he feels that he
should not undertake any official duties
nor give any time to matters of politi
cal discussion until after his vacation.
Any announcement* as to politics to
he pursued in executive and legislative
matters, or as appointments ,to be
made, will be withheld until after his
