it costs to publish a paper we have
decided to conform to the require
ments of the Oregon Press Associa

dates for office and make a reason
able charge for the same. It will
be our policy to do all in our power

principles, but there is a certain
class of advertising in connection
therewith that has an individual
commercial value and for this we
expect the individual to pay.
