"Turn to the Right," while it

teen months in New York.
Joe Bascom, the erring boy whose
footsteps are guided homeward after
seven years of wandering, by the
light in the parlor window, placed
there by his mother, is a type com

Moscow, Ida., March 26, 1919.
Mr. Editor: I ask permission to
protest against an attack made on me,
by Guy W. Wolf, in yesterday's issue
of this paper. Mr. Wolf quotes the
law as follows: Section 2259 of Idaho
Revised Codes provides: 'It shall be
the duty of such treasurer of such
towns, cities and villages to cause
to be published, for at least one in
sertion in some newspaper within
said town, city or viliage, between
first and second Mondays of January,
April, July and October of each year a
full statement of the receipts and
penditures of said town, giving the
source from whence receive«, TO
WHAT PURPOSE APPLIED and
This quotation is probably correct,
He then proceeds to state that almost:
a year has past since a report of this
kind has been published and there
fore concludes that the treasurer is (
subject to criminal prosecution and
would Infer that 1 have violated the
law, failed to do my duty.—in short
that I am a crook. All right Guy,
get busy if you think you have à case
However, since this matter has been
so violently brought to the notice of
(lie public, I desire to say, that so
far as I have any knowledge of the
facts in regard to the publication of
the report mentioned by Mr. Wolf, I
am one of the very few city treasur
ers in the state of Idaho, if not the
only one, who has ever attempted to
compile such a report for publication
seeming negligence probably
from the fact that there are certain
things required to be shown in the
report that are no part of a city
treasurer's record and can only lie ob
tained from the records of the city
thejclerk. In spite of this, however, be
cause 1 have had access to the clerk's
records at all times, I have been en
ey-labied to get, the data needed and have
cempUed the report regularly from
jthe time that arrangements were made
publication, until the present time
land such reports are now on file in
my office subject to inspection by all.
I have lived in Moscow 3] years and
Iso far as 1 know this is the first time
that my integrity as an officer has
been called in question,
know the reason for this attack and I
hope that the good citizens of Moscow
will investigate this matter and find
out whether I have given any cause
for it or not.
The reason for (his
