CONDITIONS HAVE BECOME SUCH THAT THE NEWSPAPERS OF CHILLICOTHE MUST MAKE SOME RADICAL MOVE FOR SELF PROTECTION. IT IS NOT A MATTER OF CHOICE WITH THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPER OF TOBY. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY THAT WE RETRENCH IN EVERY MANNER POSSIBLE AND YET WE MUST DO IT IN SUCH A WAY A3 WILL AVOID THE IMPAIRING OF OUR HIGH CLASS SERVICE WHICH IS MAINTAINED AT ENORMOUS EXPENSE. THAT IS THE PROBLEM THE 3DITORS OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THE TRIBUNE HAVE E3EN ENDEAVORING TO SOLVE FOR THE P4.ST SSV ERAL WEEKS--HOW TO DSOES.45S EXPENSES WITHOUT ELIMINATING ANY OF THE COMMENDABLE FEATURES OF THEIR 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 long, drama-put statement of facts lelativo to the enormous increase in cost of everything used in the offices of The Tiibune and The Constitution but we do wish to call dfteiilion to a few of the principle items ns,PC! at these offices. "Wo print here 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: NEWS PRINT PAPER (on which Newspapers are printed. . PRINTER'S ROLLERS for Inking forms Cost Year Ago Present Cost $2.50 per Cwt. $6.50 per Cwt. .25 per. .lb. NEWS INK 06 per Ita. LINOTYPE METAL -. . .07 per lb. .50 per lb. .11 per lb. .10 per lb. (These prices are subject to raise without notice and predictions are that at least a portion of them Trill go even higher before the first of the year) You will note that the cost of these items have advanced from 20 to three hundred per cent--news print paper costing us $4 00 more per cwt. than it did a year ago against $1,3 25.00 a year ago. And on every other article used in the editing of a news paper the cost has been increased proportionately. ^Vith these facts staring us in the face we lealizecl 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 in oider to reduce expenses Both The Constitution and The Tribune are equipped with the very latest printing machinerv for putting out a first class daily edition U T e rhsolntelr must set aside a sufficient sain dirmuilly to take eaie of deterioration op machinery; we must meet a payroll of mor.° $300 weekly;we must meet our obligations pi omptlv eveiv- month in oider to maintain oui ciedit; 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 ma ice yoni private business matters public, but in order to convince our icadcis that we are sincere in these malters it is necessary to show iLcm exactly what it costs us to publish, p i - mt and mail a. daily newspaper for one rear: Print paper for one subscriber for one year $2.00 Postage for one subscriber for one year . . '20 A \-rappmg paper for one subscriber for one year .10 Mailing paper £or one subscriber for one year . JO Twine and paste for one subscriber for one year .. .30 TOTAL . .. ' . $2.50 This does 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 txpeiise of maintaining a subscription depaitment; does not include cost of stock and printing icceipts 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 vear, 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 wir-j fioni the United Press Association. The Tribune is informed of all current news of the world over an Associated Press leased wire. These two news gatbeiinsr organizations are the largest concerns of this kind in the world--and the cost of this daily service is extremely hpavy. Another feature of paiticular concern to the farmer and .slock raiser is the dailv market reports. Each paper carries a complete daily market report on stock, grain and produce, a set- vice that is indispensable to the farmer, but which is a heavy expense to the newspapers. Tn view of these conditions the two Chillicothe dailv 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. . 5 O WILL PAY -YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR ONE YEAR, DELIVERED BY CARRIER, AFTES NOVEMBER 18th THE PRICE IN CHILLICOTHE WILL ES STRICTLY lOc PER WEEK'OR $5.00 PER YEAR.
