Capital Journal Started
By Will H. Parry in 1888
The recently announced plans for merrer of the Caoital
Journal and the Oregon Statesman January 1 arouses
interest in the history of the two newspapers. Ben Max
well, Capital Journal historian, has gone into the subject.
Yesterday he told the history of the Statesman. Today he
tells the story of the Capital Journal.
Dworshak and Sen. Cordon
(R., Ore.) both said in inter
views they "wouldn't be sur

Capital Journal, one of
many local newspapers among
weeklies and dailies founded
in Salem during the 1880s,
alone of that group, survives
after 65 years of publication.
Will H. Parry, a native of
Independence, Oregon, had
earlier started a newspaper
there and passed along to the
editorship of the Corvallis Ga
zette when that journal was
suffering from financial woes.
He founded the Capital Jour
nal and published the first is
sue March 1, 1888. Then, and
briefly thereafter, the publica
tion office was in Reed's Op
era House (now Miller's store)
at 112 Court street.
Capital Journal made its bid
for public acceptance as a Re
publican newspaper succeed
ing the Oregon Sentry, a jour
nal that had folded after 10
years of publication. First is
sue of Parry's new paper con
sisted of four pages with six
columns to a page. World news
and news from the local ham
let appeared in the initial is
sue. For example:

deflated this locality about
that time gave the Hoferi an
interval of hard sledding. As
sociated Press service, how
ever, was contracted in 1898
and the paper went all out for
forgetting the depression and
boosting the community. Thif
may in part be attributed to
Andrew Hofer's sale of hit in
terest in the Capital Journal
to his brother and hit future
devotion to Salem Board of
Trade promotion.
Hofer's interest in tht Capi
tal Journal continued until
their farewell editorial ap
peared October 12, 1912. Then
Ernest and R. M. Hrifer bid
their subscribers adieu.
New owners of the paper
were Graham Taber and L. S.
Barnes, who, after a short in
terval proved incompatible.
Charles H. Fisher acquired Ta
bor's interest. Come 1919 the
Capital Journal had a certi
fied circulation of 5000.
Putnam Comes to Salem
George Putnam, now editor
emeritus of the Capital Jour
nal, acquired the paper early
in September of 1919 and pub
lished an "editorial foreword"
which professed faith In the
future of Salem, its commercial
and industrial expansion.
Further, continued this ini
tial editorial, "the Capital
Journal will honestly endeavor
to print the news uncolored
and unbiased. It will be un
fettered in policies, indepen
dent in politics, progressive in
tendencies, sincerely striving
for the betterment of condi
tions and the welfare of hu
manity in brief a newspaper
I of ideas and ideals."
During the 1920s, Capital
i Journal's growth wai excep

was added in 1927. Even dur
ing early depression times, It
was evident to the publisher
that the paper had outgrown
