whereby the plant will move to

Columbia Rivfr Pilot. We expect to
be able to movo next week.
Since coming here the publishers
have tried hard to give Maupin a
real newspaper. We Jiave fought
advenity of many furln, have uc
ceeded in building up a rcapectablo
ubscription list and a fair adver
tiling clientele. It taken tho latter
to keep up a newspaper. Tho l
cal business men, with a few ex
ceptiom, teem to harbor the idea
that advertising only Adds to over
head expenses, therefore have been
lukewarm in using The Tunc col
umni to tell patrons what they had
to sell. Some of them have adver
tised spasmodically, while a few have
been faithful in their patronage.
Among the latter we mention the
Maupin State Dank, 0. P. Itcsh 4

in and week out While it is true
we have enjoyed a liberal advertising
patronage from Dalles merchant)!,
atill the fact remains that without
that patronage wq would have to had
to shut down the paper and leave

A great many of our subscribers
seem to think a newxpaper man does
not need money. We have rcpeatly
sent subscription statements to such

of those subscribers are abundantly
