Cutalt, Editor and PvUWMT Published every Thursday at Wil llaton, N. D., and entered at the Wll Uaton Postofflce as second class mall THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 191#. A HOG AND ITS SQUEAL It is rather amubing to note the squeal sent forth by the Herald re garding the printing bill passed by the last legislature. In one sentence the bill don't look good at all. No -Sir! In the next sentence this won derful organ calls upon the printing commission to make it the official pa per under this law that is says don't look good. In other words it is all right if The Herald could be the win ner but all wrong if the other fellow gets the cream. Aud further along in its preamble this paper calls attention to the fact that it is the only paper with a back tmne and the Graphic changes for every wind that blows. The hired writer of that article should have asked a few questions before making such a statement. The Herald is the only paper of the two &at was ever able to get on both /aides of a scrap in this town in the "Same week. Got out a special for one side in an election on Tuesday and then denied its own creation in the regular issue Thursday. The 'Herald has never been known to take :a stand on anything in the City under •its present management. It always -followed the policy admitted last week of watchful waiting—waiting for the band wagon. If it could make a dollar by passing up discus sion of any live issue concerning the city or county welfare it sure passed it up. The long windy article ends up by calling on the printing commission to make the official paper that would be chosen by the county commission «rs and that that will be the only -way it can vindicate itself. If this done the Herald would not get '.v vtv^ is atwairs right.. It« worth waiting (or. Always.wel* come. Never shirks its, work. Never ft wastes minutes or materials .and I tow if ..M„RT*FCELI far. Under an agreement made with the commissioners the papers of the county have been having the official printing two years at a time. The Herald had it last year and this so by the first of the year under this ar rangement the Graphic would be offi cial if there was no new law. Of course we did not even have a "Scrap of Paper" to back up this agreement and as far as the Herald was con cerned it didn't amount to a dam— but the commissioners made that pa per live up to its agreement. A few years ago it tried to get the board of county commissioners to make it official all the time and claimed it didn't remember any such agreement as the two year plan. The Commis sioners reminded it that they had a better memory and really insisted on its living up to its agreement. Of course that was one instance where the Herald did not flop over, but we fail to ?ee where any credit is due it. As regards their attack on this pa per and its management we will say but little. We believe, however, we have scraped together as much of this world's goods as the, Herald and we're always having tjiree square meals a day. You can always tell a hog by his squeal and in this case the only thing wrong with one paper getting this legal printing in the Herald's eye, is the chance that the other fellow will get it.
