LeFavor, the editor of the "Wireless" newspaper, and referred to by the "Islander" newspaper as "$1/inch," be- cause that is what he charged, did all of the legal advertising for Avalon and the charge of the $180 caused improvements on Metropole and Marilla streets to cease. The "Island- er" observed: "As a self-con- ceited demagogue, LeFavor is the limit. As a booster (of Avalon) he is a misnomer, and as the editor anqTpublisher of the 'Wireless' he is a liar." Referring to LeFavor's unsuc- cessful attempt at running for City Trustee, the "Islander" observed, "Let's have at least one trustee who believes in Avalon and its future." As Le- Favor used large 8 point type so that he could charge the City more. This was changed to 6 point type. " ... LeFavor's so called newspaper has never yet printed a line of wireless information. Many of his so- called news items have been plagiarized from the Los An- geles dailies and no credit has been given to the paper they  have stolen. As a newspaper it is an ugly menace, produces nothing tangible, harbors a silent danger and breathes forth an everlasting threat." The "Islander" was suggest- ing that the incorporation of Avalon be reversed. "Times" and "Examiner" morn- ing boat will begin regular run and the newspapers will be distributed to the paper boys at the end of the Steamer Pier.
