Arthur Meacham in answer to an article recently printed in the Kem merer Republican. The letter con tains fact and figures taken from the records of the postmaster's office, and sets forth some startling facta regarding the mail service the people of the valley have to contend with under the present routing: "The Kemmerer Republican, in its last issue, refers to a letter which I wrote to C. A. Beam in a personal way, and asked him to treat it as such. • * * Inasmuch as Mr. Beam used my letter as the nucleus of the Republican' article above referred to, I take this opportunity of stating the content of my letter and of add ing thereto a brief statement regard ing service over mail route No. 6420b whlch brought forth the letter to Mr., Beam - "In my letter I proposed that the commRteo appointed by the Lambs club of which Mr. Beam is chairman, couple with their request sent to our representatives in congress for the continuance of service over the pres ent mail route, a request that I be re-appointed postmaster at Afton. and offered in return for such service to furnish him a report on the ser vice over the mail route in question? rtating that I am the best informed man in the county to report said ser vice, either in a favorable or an us favorable way, "On reconsidering my action In this matter, I immediately followed thin letter with a second one to the samo gentleman withdrawing my proposition on the grounds that I would bo playing double should I tako any action that would tend to annul the okey I had given tho let ters of the Lincoln County Farm Bu reau, and I requested Mr. Beam to return my letter. This however, ho has not the courtesy to do, but the article in tho 'Republican' is suffi cient to show his stand. I, there' fore, tako a stand, and to indicate what that stand is, give for publica tlon tho following report of Bervico over tho present mail route serving "In July 1919 no mail arrived on tho 16th and 28th and on all other days except three was from one to fivo hours late.
