LETTERS FROM THE PIOPLE.
El Paso, Tex., March 14 1918.
Dear Sir-Will you please publish
Your March 14 issue reached me
here in Texas today. Under the
heading of "Contractor~' Committee
Makes Statement" appears some
news wherein certain men claim that
Charles J Donner might be sattisae
tory as a clerk, but does not, in their
opinion, possess the general qualifi

of the General Contractors' Assoe
ation. Realizing, as I do, the ability
of C J Donner as a secretary, by his
faithful and eelfficient service for four
years and more as secretary of the
Levee Board under Governor L K.
Hall, forces me to take some stock
in Donner's idea of being persecuted.
The fact that Donner served as
secretary of this General Contract
ors' Association from August 1, 1917,
until January 22, 1918, proves be
yond doubt that his services as such
must have apparently been Natistao
