Makes Strong Protest
A strong protest from the
printing fraternity throughout
the country is being waged
against the government printed
envelopes. If the government
did the work at its own print
ing office it would not seem so
"raw." But the government
finds that it cannot print the
envelopes as cheaply as a cor
poration can do so, and even so
they are furnished to the cus
tomer below actual cost.
The postofflcc department,
with the consent of the govern
ment, has entered into a con
tract witlv a single large concern
for the printing of return cards
on stamped envelopes. The post
office branches take the order of
each individual buyer of stamped
envelopes and also the order for
printing the return address in
the corner of the envelope. The
postoffice department then, ac
cording to its contract, provides
the one large concern with the
stamped envelopes, which arc
subsequently forwarded to the
individual buyer. The concern
holding the contract is relieved
of all shipping charges and thus
is given a competitive advantage
which the small printer is unable
to overcome. Printers in gen
oral are not claiming the right
to print corner cards with the
individual address left blank
They admit that it is the gov
ernment's right to have these
printed wherever it sees fit. It
is against the printing of the
individual addresses, no matter
in what city they may bo, by
this one concern that the print
ers are protesting. Ah condi
Hons exist today the govern
ment is not alone computing
against the small printer by en
tering his field, taking money
out of his town and diverting it
into the treasury of one concern
but it docs not even permit him
to compete. It has entered into
a contract which gives one nrinl
ing plant the solo right to print
individual corner cards on stamp
ed envelopes no matter whore
the individual may live.
It is resolved by the City o
Hint it is ucomcu necessary
and expedient to change the
grade on Charleston street bo
tweon the east side line of Wil
lamcttu botilovnrd and tho wesi
side line of Hayes street, to con
form to tho established grades
of tho said Willametlo noulovnn
and Hayes street, and tho city
engineer is hereby directed to
make and Mo with tho City Ito
corder a profile showing tho pro
posed change or graue, and with
in three days from tho (Into of
tho first publication of this reso
lulion the city engineer is fur

the change or gnulo as provide!

a brief, concise manner tho

objections or remonstrances
against the same may w made.
Adopted by tho Council this
