CONDITIONS HAVE BECOME SUCH THAT THE NEWSPAPERS OF CHILLICOTHE MUST MAKE SOME RADICAL MOVE FOH, SELF PROTECTION. IT IS NOT A MATTES OF CHOICE WITH i THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPER OF TODAY. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY . THAT WE RETRENCH IN EVERY MANNER POSSIBLE AND YET WE MUST DO IT IN SUCH A WAY AS WILL AVOID THE IMPAIRING OF OUR HIGH CLASS SERVICE WHICH IS MAINTAINED AT ENORMOUS EXPENSE. THAT IS THE PROBLEM THE EDITORS OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THB TRIBUNE HAVE BEEN ENDEAVORING TO SOLVE FOR THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS--HOW TO DECREASE EXPENSES WITHOUT ELTMINATING ANY OF THE COMMENDABLE FEATURES OF THEIS PAPERS, AND HOW TO GAIN AN INCREASE IN REVENUE WITHOUT PLACING A BURDEN UPON THE SHOULDERS OF ANY PARTICULAR CLASS. THIS SAME CRISIS IS FACING EVERY COUNTRY NEWSPAPER IN THE UNITED STATES. It is not necessary for us to make a lon.u;, drawn-put statement of 1'aols relative to the enormous increase in c9st of everything used in the offices of Tlio Tribune and The Constitution but we do -wish to call Attention to a i'e\v ol' the principle items used at these offices. We print heie a scalo of comparative cost prices, that is, the cost of various items a year ago as compared to the cost of the same items today: 1 Cost Year Ago Present Cost NEWS PRINT PAPER (on which Newspapers are printed .. . $2.50 per Cwt. $6.50 per Cwt. PRINTER'S ROLLERS for Inking forms , . . - . . . .25 per. .lb. .50 per Ib. NEWS INK 06 per lb. .11 per lb. LINOTYPE METAL '. .07 per lb. .10 per lb. (These prices are subject to raise -without notice and predictions are that at least a portion of them will go even higher before the first of the year) You vrill note that tho cost of these items have ato^nced from 20 to three huri- red per cent--news print paper costing iis iH 00 more per cwt. than it did a year ago aaain'st $1,125.00 a year aa;o. And on every other article used in the editing of a news paper" the'cost has' been increased proportionately. With these facts staring ns in the face we realized that something would have to be done and done quickly, if we were to remain in business. · As stated above, we do not wish to eliminate any of the good features of our papers ill order to reduce expenses. Both The Constitution and The Tribune are equipped with the very latest printing machinery for putting out a first class daily edition We absolutely must set aside a sufficient sum annually to take care of deterioration on machinery; we must meet a payroll of more than $]00 wcckly;we must meet our obligations promptly every month in order to maintain our credit; we must have a reasonable sum left, when all obligations are met, to take care of our own families. Ordinarily it is bad policy to make your private business matters public, but in order to convince our readers that we are sincere in these matters it is necessary to show ihi-m exactly what it costs us to publish, print and mail a daily newspaper for one vear: Print paper for one subscriber for one year $2.00 Postage for one subscriber for one year 20 Wrapping papei' for one subscriber for one year 10 Mailing paper for one subsor,bcr for one year 10 Twine and paste for one subscriber for one year _ 10 TOTAL . . _ $2.50 This docs not include salary of press feeder or mail wrappers; does not include deterioration on machinery or salary for time spent in changing and correcting subscription galleys: does not include postage on subscription statements sent out or for expense of maintaining a subscription department; does not include cost of stock and printing receipts nor many others items too numerous to mention. Read that table closely, then figure how much profit the newspaper make on a subscription at $3.00 per year. Up until the past few years, daily subscribers to The Tribune or The_ Constitution have always paid $3.00 per year, and yet there is absolutely no comparison between these dailies ten years ago, and today. One feature, in particular, we wish to call attention to is the leased wire news service used by the papers. The Constitution gets daily a complete summary of the news events of the world over a leased win from the United Press Association. The Tribune is informed of all current news of the world over an Associated Press leased wire. These two news gnthei'ing organizations arc the largest concerns of this kind in tl.e world--and the cost of this daily service is extremely hpavy. Another feature of particular concern to the farmer and .stock raiser is the daily market reports. Each paper carries a complete daily market report on stock, grain and produce, a ser vice that is indispensible to the farmer, but which is a heavy expense to the newspapers In view of these conditions the two Chillicothe daily newspapers feel that they are entitled to due consideration from both their subscribers and advertisers. $4.50 IN TOWN WE WILL ALSO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR OUR CITY SUBSCRIBERS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS LAST BARGAIN OFFER. S 4 . 5 O WILL f AY YOUR, SUBSCRIPTION FOR ONE YEAR, DELIVERED BY CARRIER. AFTER NOVEMBER 18th THE PRICE IN CHILLICOTHE WILL BE STRICTLY lOc PER WEEK OR $5.00 PER YEAR. THE SAME RULING APPLIES TO THIS AS TO THE MAIL DAILY SUBSCRIPTION--ALL ARREARAGES KUST BE PAID BEFORE THE BARGAIN RATE IS ALLOWED. THE PLAN FROM THIS DATE UNTIL SATURDAY, NOV EMBER 18th, WE WILL OFFER THE DAILY CONSTITUTION ONE YEAR FOR THIS OFFER WILL POSITIVELY CLOSE ON THE DATE ADVERTISED, NAMELY: NOVEMBER 18th AFTER THAT DATE THE PRICE WILL ABSOLUTELY GO TO $3.00 OR MORE AS WE CANNOT POSSIBLY ACCEPT A SUBSCRIPTION AT A LOWER RATS, AFTER THAT TIME IN VIEW OF RAPIDLY INCREASING COST PRICES. (This applies to mail subscriptions onby) NOTE: All arrearages must be paid at regular price before bargain rate may be obtained. P O S T M A S T E R S ALL POSTMASTERS ARE RECOGNIZED AGENTS AND ARE AUTHORIZED TO COLLECT AND RECEIPT FOR ALL SUBSCRIPTIONS RECEIVED BY THEM. NO REDUCTION LATER NOVEMBER 18th WILL POSITIVELY BE THE LAST BARGAIN DAY. PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO ALLOW YOU THIS RATE AFTER THAT TIME/ WE ARE SETTING THE DATE FAR ENOUGH AHEAD THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE AMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE REDUCED RATE BEFORE CLOSING DATE. YOU WOULD ONLY CAUSE US TO REFUSE YOU SHOULD YOU ASK FOR THE REDUCED RATE AFTER THAT TIME. iNEWSFAPERi CONSTITUTION-:- NEWSPAPER!
