KEMP POSTMASTER HAS
A STATEMENT TO MAKE
The Achlllo Press on failing to col
lect an account from one of Its sub
scribers finds no other way of ap
peasing its wrath than trying to
quibble with the postmasters. In its
Issue of July the fifteenth it says
that the postmaster at Kemp, Okla
homa has not the courtesy of a com
mon business man and as evidence
offers the statement that It, Inquired
of him some thirty days ago as to
who had been receivelng its publi
cation at that office but as yet has
not received any reply.
This reminds us of a lonely maiden
who addressed an inquiry to the
north star some three centuries ago
and desired to know If her lover who
had gone in quest of the north pole
had perished In the snow or had he
found a sunny paradise from which
he cared not to return. At last ac
count she had not received any an
swer. Yet, we all know that the
north star still shines true to its set
purpose and violates no law of nature.
To those who do not know the
postmaster at Kemp we wish to say
that rnurtenv Ir our motto and the
Golden Rule Is our religion. If the
Achllle Press or any other concern
will send Its mailing list to ub, we
will revise and return It In proper
observance of the postal laws and
regulations.
We wll state further that we have
no grievance with the Press and we
desire to cultivate the good will of
and render our best services to that
Institution as well as to all others.
R. L. ADAMS,
Postmaster at Kemp, Oklahoma.
Harding Requests
Power To Dicker
On Tariff Rates
President Harding amazed Con
gress and tho whole contry early this
week when he asked Congress to give
him authority to bargain with other
nations of the world to remove ex
isting duties on oil or other discrim
inations which he said hampered the
trade with the United States. The
request was conxyed through a let
ter to Congressman Fordney. author
of tho nresent Republican tariff bill.
The president appeared in direct op
position to the duties on oil but wants
authority to impose them against
any nation that hampers tho facili
ties of trade with the United States.
For the most part Republicans
hnvB fnvored an imnort duty on oil
and Democrats have opposed it. Ok
lahoma oil men and those rrom omer
States have put up a big fight for a
protective tariff and when news first
came that the Item was not on the
free list there was much rejoicing
In the numerous Oklahoma oil towns.
