SEE H. B. HOGAN AND GET HIS PRICES. GAIN OFFER" THE INEVITABLE HAS COME. 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 TODAY. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY THAT WE RETRENCH IN EVERY MANNER POSSIBLE AND YET WE MUST DO IT IN SUCH A V7AY 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 THE TRIBUNE HAVE BEEN ENDEAVORING TO SOLVE FOR THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS--HOW TO DECREASE 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, drawn-out statement of facts relative to the enormous increase in cost of everything used in the offices of The Tribune and The Constitution but we do wish to call attention to a few of the principle items used at these offices. We print here a scale ,of comparative cost prices, that is, the cost of various items a year ago as compared to the cost of the same items today:' Cost Year Ago Present Cost NEWS PRINT PAPER (on which Newspapers are printed. . . PRINTER'S ROLLERS for Inking forms · - . . -25 per. .lb. NEWS INK 06 per lb. LINOTYPE METAL .07 per lb. .$2.50 per Cwt, $6.50 per Cwt. .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 will go even higher before the first of the year) Yon 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. and this item is our heaviest expense during the year. Each of the two newspapers in riiillicothe use approximately 45,000 Ihs. of news print within a year. At $6.50 per Cwt. you. will note that our yearly expenditure for tin's paper alone is $2,925.00 as against $1,125.00 a year ago. And on every other article used in the editing of e news · paper the cost has" been increased proportionately. . . these facts staring us in the- face we realized that something would have to be dtrae 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 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. $100- weekly ;we must meet our obligations, promptly every month in order to maintain our credit; we must have a reasonable suin 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 them exactly what it costs UP to publish, print and mail a daily newspaper for one · year: ' · - / " Print paper for one subscriber for one year $2.00 Postage for one subscriber for one year ! -- .-0 Wrapping paper for one subscriber for .one year .'. _.. .10 Mailing paper for one subscriber for one year....'. 10 Twine and paste for one subscriber for one year _ 10 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 expense of maintaining a subscription department; does not include cost of stock and printing receipts nor many others items too numerous to mention. v 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 wire from the .United Press Association. The Tribune is informed of all era-rent news of the world over an Associated Press leased wire. These two news gathering organizations are the largest concerns of this kind in the world--and the cost of this daily service is extremely hfiavy. Another featur-e of particular concern to the farmer and stock raiser is the daily market reports. Each'baper carries a complete daily market report on stock, grain and produce, a service 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. $ 4 . 5 O WILL PAY YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR ONE YEAR, DELIVERED BY CARRIER.
