Not Authorized

Under the above heading we said in the Sentinel for September 12, 1901, that a letter received from Mr. Gale and Miss Bradshaw of San Francisco informed us that they had not authorized any one to use their names in connection with the Willamette Oil Company. We are in receipt of a letter from the gentleman who sent out a circular relating to the above company in which he says he only referred to Mr. Gale and Miss Bradshaw and other Scientists, for his personal standing, and that he had no idea any one would infer that the Scientists named in the circular had any connection whatever with the company. He further says that had he thought for a moment he was doing wrong he would have refrained.

We are glad to publish this gentleman's explanantion, and to exonerate him from any wrong intention. He now sees that the use of names in the connection mentioned was liable to be misleading.

The gentleman thus finally writes:—

"I did not fully realize the magnitude of my action. The results of my action prove beyond question that I erred.... It is a lesson that will be beneficial in the future."
