From this day forth the patent-medicine
man of the effete East, who has been ac
customed to buy advertising space in the
country weeklies of Oregon for any old
price his conscience would allow and the
editor's crying: necessities force him to
accept, will find himself up against the
real, real thine in the matter of rates
and charges. From this day forth, like
wise, the needy country publisher will
cease to cut his esteemed contemporary's
throat, metaphorically speaking, for the
purpose of securing the county printing.
And last, but not least, henceforth the
leading citizen who aspires to hold public
office will find the rural journalist's time
honored practice of giving free puffs as
extinct as the dodo.
3Iust Pay lor Publicity.
The politician hereafter will be com
pelled to pay for all publicity he receives
through the columns of the local news
papers at commercial advertising rates,
nor will the acceptance of .uch paid po
litical advertising bind the newspaper to
support the candidate who foots the bill.
Like the proverbial worm, the down-trodden
country editor has turned, and hence
forth he will exact his price with hair
splitting attention to business principles,
and the motto. "Live and Let Live." at
the masthead on his front page will-mean
just what it says.
Substance of Things Done.
Tills, in substance, is what was resolved
upon by the weekly newspaper editors and
publishers of the state at the closing ses
sion of the annual convention of the Ore
gon Press Association, yesterday after
noon. The meeting, held in the tower
room of the Portland Commercial Club,
was the largest and most enthusiastic in
the history of the association, and though
many other matters and things of import
ance to the craft were said and done, the
formation of a rock-ribbed combination to
fix and maintain rates for the publication
of foreign advertising, legal notices and
political announcements will go dwn in
the annals of Oregon newspaperdom as
the first step toward the emancipation of
the country editor from his bondage.
Report on Uniform Tlalcs.
The report of the committee on uniform
advertising rates, in which the foregoing
reforms were recommended, was adopted
without a dissenting voice. There was an
enthusiastic discussion, in the course of
which the association voted to go still
further in the matter of shaking off the
tentacles of what were referred to as the
"greedy and grasping advertising agen
cies."' and decided to carry out both the
letter and the spirit of the committee's
report by constituting the State Press
Association a great co-operative adver
ting bureau, in charge of a competent
agent, for tne purpose of securing the
business of the foreign advertisers, nota
bly the patent-medicine concerns, at a
just and uniform rate for all newspapers
In the association, and of literally keep
ing out of the state advertisers who re
fuse to pay the "union scale."
The Closing .Session.
The closing session of the convention
bogan at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
and was brief, lasting but two hours. The
first business disposed of 'was the election
of officers, all of whom were chosen by
unanimous vote. Then the report of the
committee on advertising rates was taken
up, and most of the remaining time given
to its discussion.
The only material change made in the
report was the elimination of the second
clause, which read: "That the law regu
lating the publication of Sheriffs sales
for delinquent taxes be amended so as to
fix a minimum compensation of 12 cents
a line, nonpareil, for the legal time
of publication." During the discussion of
this clause, it developed that several
newspapers were receiving a larger rate
than this minimum, and accordingly op
posed the change Jt was finally agreed
to let the law remain as It is and trust
to the -fairness of the county courts to fix
a living rate for such publications.
Text of Committee's Report.
Following is the committee's report as
it was adopted:
To the President and Member of the Ore
son Press Association: Your committee ap
pointed to consider the matter of foreign and
political advertising, respectfully submits the
That the law regulating the publication of
County Court proceedings- be amended to .as
to fix a minimum compensation of 25 cent
That all contracts for foreign advertising
be made through the advertising agent of the
Oregon Press Association at the rates fixed
by the association, and that. In counties
where members of the association compete
with papers that arc not members of the as
sociation, this organization pledges to its
members Its full protection, and all com
plaints on this subject must be taken up and
vigorously acted upon by the officers of the
association, the advertising agent to be al
lowed per cent commission, to be paid by
All papers (members of this association)
shall enter Into a written agreement with
the advertising agent to abide by all con
tracts entered Into by him under the rules
of the association; and we recommend that
all members of the association file with the
advertising agent their list of contracts for
foreign advertising now In effect.
Vi'c recommend that all members of the
Oreron Press Association discontinue thn al
lowance to the publishers of ready prints for!
advertising space, being fully awured that
iho profit on such advertising, to say noth
ing of the additional news space, will more
lhan compensate the publisher for any In
creased price that may bo charged for their
patents, especially In view of the fact that this
association purposes to protect its members.
If arr&sgCBKBts satisfactory, to tfee pub
lishers cannot bo made with the Portland
XcwHpaper Union, the president- Is hereby
instructed to call a meeting of the executive
committee for the purpose of making arrange
ments for the publication of ready prints at
cost for members of the association. Said
call to be Issued upon the request of Ave
members of the association.
That the following prices for electros be
1000 circulation or lesfl. per inch, run
of paper, per Insertion 7 cents
Reading notices, monthly changes, per
line, per lnt.ortion, S-polnl basis 1 cent
Purely local, one Insertion 2 cents
On the matter of political advertising, we
recommend that space be !d to candidates
on the same basis that It 1m fold to commer
cial advertisers, no contract for advertising
carrying with it an express or implied obli
gation binding the paper to the support of
?uch candidate, there being a minimum charge
of 3f-.o0 per month for candidates' cards In
The executive committee 1 hereby instruct
ed to meet at Its earliest convenience to make
arrangement for carrying out the ideas em
bodied In this repoit.
On the adoption of the first clause of
the report there was little discussion, the
necessity of putting an end to the perni
cious practice of taking county printing at
less than the- cost of composition, merely
to prevent some rival from getting it, ap
pearing self-evident to the members of
the association. The second clause was
first adopted, but was voted down on a
motion for reconsideration.
Co-Operalivc Advertising Association
The announcement of the president. R.
J. Hendricks, of the Salem Statesman,
that the report of the committee with
reference to foreign advertising rates
meant nothing more nor less than that
the Press Association was about to re
solx'e itself into a big co-operative ad
vertising agency to eliminate the middle
men, the private advertising agencies, who
had heretofore been reaping the profits,
was hailed with a shout of approval.
Mr. Hendricks went on to explain that
it might mean to the DO or more papers In
the association a loss of from 50 to 73 per
cent of their advertising business, but
that in the end the foreign advertisers
would be forced to come to the associa
tion's terms and patronize its members at
largely increased prices.
R P. Dodd. editor of the Pendleton Trib
une, raised the objection that the scale
was unfair to the country dailies, but was
reassured when told that the association
rates were Intended to apply only to the
Talks of Renegade Papers.
K. H. Flagg. of the St. Helens Mist,
paid his respects to the newspapers which
some objector prophesied would not join
C. Ilnyter Dalla. Xt President
Oregon Pi-cm AfffcOctatlon.
the association and would cut under the
association rates. Ho said lie hoped the
foreign advertisers would finally pay these
renegade newspapers so little for their
space that they would be forced to join
D. R. Maginnis, an advertising agent of
long experience, who happened in on the
convention, was largely responsible for
the radical action taken by the editors.
He was called on for a speech, and told
of the organization and successful opera
tions of the North Star Press Association,
in Minnesota. This association. Mr. Ma
ginnis explained, was originally a. mere
social organization which met yearly to
discuss problems of the craft, but. like the
Oregon association, had never really done
anythlng to advance the interests of its
members in a financial way.
Itibllsliers Stand Pat.
Several years ago the association woke
up to the fact that it was getting ridicu
lously low prices for Its foreign advertis
ing, and as a result a combination was
formed to raise rates. Mr. Maginnis was
the first agent in charge, and took control
on a commission basis, receiving 25 per
cent. Rates were fixed at 6 cents an inch
for 1000 actual circulation weekly, and
every publisher stood pat. At the end of
SO days a dividend was declared, and with
in a year all the members were publishing
more advertising than ever before and
getting more money for it.
"The trouble with the business as vou
now carry It on," said Mr. Maginnis. '"Is
that you are taken advantage of singly
by the advertisers and advertising agen
cies. In union there is strength, and
though you must expect to meet dlscour
agenfents. you will win' out if yon stick
together. You will got advertising vou
never dreamed of at rales you cannot
now hope to attain. Throw out your boiler-plate
matter. Mak your papers live
local sheets, and fill them up with paid
electros secured from advertisers through
Success In Minnesota.
"Tlie North Star Press Association now
has 300 members, and is a power in the
Northwest. You wouldn't believe me it
I told how much better it was doing in
rates than the individual papers used to
do. You want to get good men to handle
tlils scheme for you. Tay them good
commissions for getting advertising busi
ness. The man in charge of the Minne
sota North Star Association is now mak
ing $1000 a month In commissions. But
by all means stick together."
Mr. Maginnis Indorsed the proposed
price schedule as a whole, and answered
numerous questions pumped at him by
his eager listeners. Some of the editors
under the stimulus of the qccasion grew
confidential and actuallv to!fl llntx
they were taking foreign advertising at
2 or 3 cents an inch, even.
Political Advertising Considered.
Following the adoption of this section
of the report the political advertising
clause was taken -up. The discussion was
brieX and to the point. Secretary TozW
heartily indorsed the concluding sentencs
of the clause.
"Jt will help dispel the idea many
people seem to have that the opinions of
an editor and the support of his news
paper arc for sale to Tom, Dick and
Harry," he declared.
"Yes, andfit will put an end to the talk
that is continually going round about
candidates being held up by the news
papers." added William J. Clarke, of the
Causes a Hearty Laugh.
"They ought -to bejield up," shouted a
voice in the rear of 'the room, at which
the laughter caused by Mr. Clarke's re
mark was increased to a hilarious roar.
There was not a dissenting voice when
the clause was- voted upon.
The legislation committee presented the
"Your committee on legislation desires
at this time to defer Its reports as to re
sults. We respectfully &k that the mem
bers of the association extend financial
aid to the association committee to enable
It to carry on Its work. Your committee
further recommends that each Individual
member of the Oregon Press Association
use his influence with all legislative can
didates and pledge them to assist any
measure or measures that may bo re
quested by the State Press Association
to be passed by the next Legislature."
Test Vote Taken.
During a discussion of the .section of
this report asking for financial aid a little
Ill-feeling cropped out. It was moved and
s2conded that the committee be required,
to file a written report at the next meet
In?, giving an itemized, account of its
The motion raised a. vigorous protest, a
majority pf the association seeming to in
dorse the stand of the committee, that
while Its books were open It had good
reasons for not allowing Its entire bus!
ness to become public property by filing
a report, and the motion was overwhelm
It is the intention of the association to
aek the Legislature to pass a law requir
ing the publication of all new laws, and
the more Important proceedings of the
Legislature in two newspapers in each
county before the adjournment or the
Legislature; also to re-enact the law re
quiring the publication by the county
newspapers of the official tax lists and
assessments, and to secure other legisla
tion that will benefit the newspapers of
Xteport of Treasurer.
The treasurer reported a balance of M
on liand after paying all bills, and this
amount was on motion of President Hen
dricks placed at the disposal of the com
mittee on legislation. Mr. Hendricks
said In support of his motion that this
was an age of publicity: that good and
not harm would be done by publishing
court proceeding" assessment lists, lists
of taxpayers, lieu lawe, etc, for the In
formation of the people generally; urged
the raising of a fund for the assistance
of the committee on legislation, and as a
result a substantial sum was contributed
during a recess taken for the purpose.
Bennett's Resolutions Pass.
A. Bennett, editor of the Irrigon Irri
gator, put and had carried two motion?.
One was that the SO paid-up members of
the Press Association authorize the use
of their names for the purpose of com
pelling the 103 newspapers not members
to Join the association for the purpose
of strengthening the advertising combina
tion. The other that each editor present
pledge himself to forward a copy of his
paper regularly to Manager Tom Rich
ardson, of the Commercial Club, in the
Interests of publicity.
Historian George H. Hincs, following
the lead of the Oregon Development
League's move at the morning session.
Introduced the following resolution:
Whereas. As representatives r the newrfpa
rcrs of Oregon It Is ccnaln that our hlgn
t Interests ax business men will be txt sub
served by ae-istlng to make known to the
world the opportunities existing In our state
with the development of lis latest resources
for the htbltatton of the human race, and
thus encouraging its -ettlement and develop
ment alng the varied phases f human
Whereaj". We know that the object so much
Jcstred cannot be accomplished other wire than
by unity of action on the part f all hav
ing the welt-being of our commonwealth truly
at heart; and.
Whereas. It Is an established fact that the
unfortuna'e and persistent use by our own
people to a large extent of the term "web
foot" given to this state In 'a spirit of de
rision by the peottie of a neighboring tate
has diverted a large number of people from
settlement In our midst and consequently pre
vented the Investment of large sums of
money much needed in developing the re
ourcs which we know do exist: and.
Whereas. We know that the use of the op
probrious term alluded to Is untrue and un
just as can be conclusively proven by refer
ence to the Government Weather Bureau
recordf. which show that at lu one-half of
the states of the Union have as much rain

siderably more: therefore, be It
P.esolved. That the Oregon Prees Associa

ISth day of January-. 1IH in the rooms of
the Commercial Club of Portland. Or., will
from thh date and henceforth forever ceaee
to use the word "wt-bfoot" a now generally
applied to Oregon and discourage all refer-
ence thereto on the part of ethers: and. b It
Resolved. That this association will begin at
ence the uec of the original term by which
the state was known, name?-. "The Beaver
State." adopted during territorial days and
used in early statehood as emblematical of the
habits of the sagacious and Industrious beaver,
an the most appropriate symbol of the history
and people of Oregon that could have been se
lected from the treasury of heraldry and
which adorned the first coinage In American
territory west of Ibi Itocky Mountain, and
was also the crest of the first territorial seal.
Get Hid of "Webfoot."
Mr. H lines said he had no personal ob
jection to the term "Webfoot," but that It
would undoubtedly be well to get rid of
it. Somebody in a Jocular mood declared
that the eastern count editors would not
vote for the resolution unless the western
county editors would refrain from refer
ring to the "cow counties" in print. Pres
ident Hendricks agreed to the suggestion
and promised on behalf of the Willamette
Valley press to boycott the objectionable

She said she was particularly pleased to

she predicted that if the brainy men of

years ago. "Oregon Against the World."
Resolutions or Thanks.
Mr. Flagg introduced and had adopted
the following' resolution:
"Resolved. That the Oregon Press Asso

the strict observance of the direct-primary
law. believing that all laws adopted
by the people or their representatives are
entitled to a full and fair trial."
Mr. Bennett introduced and had passed
