This paper bas the best state and foreign news service of any publication in or near the county PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY AT THE RUSSELL BUILDING, NORTH EAST CORNFR OF PUBLIC SQUARE Letters for puhlication should be addressed to the Managing Editor, and must be accompan ied by the writer's name. This paper is circulated through all the principal parts of this county and principal cities of the state THURSDAY MAR. 12, 1914 A CHALLENGE. To the Editor Benton News Gazette: We will place 50 00 of lawful money in any reputable bank in Polk county and if you will pro duce one jot of evidence to show that Hon. Gordon G. flyattowns a single dollar in this paper or has anything to say in its man agement we will donate said $50 to any charitable institution you may select. If you fail to do this, you must stand branded as a contemptible liar and not worthy of the confidence v of decent people of any community . Ducktown Republican o To the Editor of the Ducktown Republic m: Read the following from the Knoxville Journal nd Tribune of recent date Gordon Hyatt, a promin ent attorney of Ducktown was in Knoxville yesterday on business. Mr. Hyatt in the publisher of a new re- . publican weekly that will make its appearance this week; It will be known as the Ducktown Republican and will be the on lir republi can paper in Polk' county, although the county is re publican and has two, demo cratic papers." If the allegation that Gordon is the manager and owner of the paper is false and indecent, why did you fail to challenge the Journal and Tribune? If . we did not tell the truth.it was caused by the Journal und Tri bune, a paper of your own per suasiou pi-en republican. You should bear the alleged disgrace with the fortitude of Fremont and the charity of Lincoln, to prove that you are worthy or the name that you, or Gordon, has misappropriated. The jot of evidence is produc ed, but nc chHritable institution would have the 50. They would know that Gordon would have to pay it out of his tainted riches because if you had money you would never have buen a Duck town publisher. That is the history of Ducktown publishers, and that sort of history always repeats itself. If you are Gordon's flunkey, we care not for your insults; but if you are the owner of a paper and have not been using Gor don's dope, we deserve to be called a liar along with that re liably republican paper, the Journal and Tribune. Hereafter we shall only men tion the men or interests that Imported youfree of import duty a slave to' the onerous and arduous task assigned you an object of freo trade for the revelers of wealth, much of which justly belongs to the maimed, the widows and orphans and the treasury of Polk county and shall not wrinKle your feathers, because the plumage of a peacock becomes you so puch.
