volume, and that it is still growing faster than ever before.
This business comes from all over the United States, and a
good deal more than half of tffe income is from points outside
of Salem; perhaps 75 per cent of it. And nearly all of the in
come is expended here. In this respect tnis newspaper com
bination has grown into a manufacturing plant oi no mean
proportions in contributing to the industrial life of Salem (for
newspapers are classified in the census returns as manufac
turing concerns), and this combination of newspapers in other
ways is doing its part in development work along all lines
that contribute to the upbuilding and well being of Salem and
the whole state and the entire Pacific Northwest.
Connected with The Statesman newspaper institution
for it has grown to the stature and dignity of an institution
are the Pacific Homestead, we think the greatest Western
farm paper; the Northwest Poultry Journal, the "best in the
West," and the largest, in its field, and the Oregon Teachers
Monthly, the only one of its kind in this state. . The reader
will note that the subscription price of the Daily Statesman
is $6 a year in Marion and Polk counties, and $7 a year out
side, by mail: the Twice-a-Week Statesman $1 a year. The
Pacific Homestead is $1 a year; the Oregon Teachers Monthly
$1.25 a year, and the Northwest Poultry Journal 75 cents a
A considerable portion of the business of The Statesman
establishment is in the printing of outside newspapers and
general job printing, perhaps 80 per cent of which comes from
outside the city of Salem.

WELCOME AND ANNIVERSARYEDITION
'-: Tha RrAtPsman will in a few weeks enter its seventy
first vear of publication. It was established March 28th,
1851, as a weekly newspaper and as a daily in 1861. bo we
hava Wn nWsH tn rail this number of The Statesman the
Wrlrnme and Anniversary Edition.' "But the main idea is the
WplrnmA Mpa runnincr all throueh its pages with the pur
firmlv firincr the title. Citv of .Welcome, which was
given to Salem some years ago by The Statesman
' 1 AnH at some future time. Derhaps in celebration of its
seventy-fifth birthday, or when it attains the youthful age
of 100 years, The. Statesman will more fully exploit the an
niversary idea; and no doubt this will be the custom at least
every 100 years thereafter. .
. Salem is trulv the Citv of Welcome-
Surrounded by a country of welcome, inviting men of
industry and cenius and capital to come here and help in
building up the most progressive and prosperous city in the
richest country in all the world.
Perhaps the best idea of what Salem and the surround
inz country have to of f er to the new comer may be gathered
by a careful reading of the review in this issue of the fifty
two Salem Slogan issues of The Statesman and the writer
invites a very careful perusal of this review.
These Salem Slogan issues were conducted with a view
to showing to the outside world and to our own people the
fifty-two outstanding basic industries and interests of Salem
and the surrounding country
And many of bur people have been surprised ; the Salem
Slogan editor among the rest, at the showing. This is well
.illustrated by an article in this issue by Prof. C. I. Lewis,
manager of the organization department of the Oregon Grow
ers' Co-operative Association, who names this the "land of
diversity," as well as the land of opportunity. When
The Statesman first started the Salem Slogan cam
paigns. Prof. Lewis rather objected to the spirit of
. the idea, because he is a conservative and he told
the Salem Slogan editor then that he was writing constantly
with superlatives. The answer of the Slogan editor was that
this is a land of superlatives. If the reader will turn to the
article of Prof. Lewis, he will find him saying: Our valley
welcomes the stranger into the greatest fruit section of the
United States." That is surely speaking in superlatives ; but
it is speaking the truth.
. Having converted ourselves, we may convert the rest of
the country and the rest of the world
And if the facts contained in this review of a year of
the Salem Slogan campaign could be driven home to a suffi
cient number of people in this and other countries, there
would not be room enough here for the people who would
come to balem and the Salem district.
We have the surest basis of wealth known to the world
to of f er the products of the land that we can produce cheap
er ana Deuer than any other section, and that we can process
and manufacture and dehydrate and preserve and ship to the
lands bordering on all the seven seas -
And this is better than diamond or gold or silver or cop

culture, will never run out, but on the contrary will increase
in productiveness with the years, while there is an end to
every mine; it will pinch out or finally be exhausted.
With the country working -with the city, we have a Gib
ralter prosperity and growth . .;
; . And, as a matter of fact, with the building of paved roads
and with rural mail delivery and telephone service and the
light and power lines running into the country further and
more generally, no one can tell where the city leaves off and
the country begins, and, for trade purposes, Salem is, or will
soon be, a city of 100,000 people, including the farmers on the
paved roads, instead of a city of 20,000 within the city limits.
And it is headed rapidly towards becoming a city of 100 1
000 people within the municipal limits r

His Capital Kta
' Death was a mighty severe sen

was his fearless independence. He
would fling back an angry retort
to a guard even though he knew
that the flesh would be stripped
from his back in payment. He was
consistent in his defiance. No one
ever heard the Goat send up a
yell from the basement. It gave
him an old reputation in the pen.
To the ether prisoners he seemed

They had been two years of re
lentless punishment for Foley. He
was early initiated into the hor
rors ot the basement. The man
was neither desperate nor viscious
but he did not know bow to cringe
when a guard demanded groveling
obedience. Foley was an indomit
able, angry sort. He could not be
subdued and so be was all but
He came into the pen
weighing 200 pounds. When I saw
him he carried but 142 pounds on
his six foot frame. He looked
more like a wraith than a man.
. He had been two months at the
trip hammer when his term ex
pired. In the bolt contracts this
massive instrument was operated
by man power. It was a cruel and
driving job. For sixty days his
arms and legs had been in almost
perpetual motion. The big ham
mers were pedaled by the feet,
small ones by the hand. Sixty days
had finished the wreck of Foley's

though his voice was but a hoarse
shocking whisper and his hands
"I'm done in," he said without
a trace of self pity or regret. "I'm
going to wind it up peacefully on
the hill where I was born. I've got
a few thousand. That'll pay for a
funeral. I've had 28 years on this
planet that's enough. I'm satis

Foley reckoned without Cal
Crim. He reckoned without the
boycott. He, forgot that he was
legitimate prey to be hunted down
as soon as j his release became

city as though h-s were in truth
a free man. At the corner of
Fifth and Vine streets he discov

aimless enough, to be. sure. It
was but a Week or so after his
discharge; He stood there with
his hands in his pockets, waiting.
The ex-con was waiting for a lit

take her to a vaudeville show.
The little old creature was his
aunt. She had raised him. When
he came ! out from the pen she

caught Foley by th- arm.
"Hello, Goat, when did you get
