A New Sunday Paper.
Few people realize the enormity of
the labor and the extent of capital
necessary to put into circulation a
daily paper in one of our large cities.
The following editorial which appears
in the Journal, of Portland, will be
interesting and self-explaining.
“ On the eleventh day of this month
The Journal will be two years old. It
is safe to say that during the last year

circulation or in influence. From a

the same high standard so as to meet
the increased demands which are being
made upon it. Now that the evening
issue of The Journal is regarded as an
established institution, the logical and
unavoidable outcome is a Sunday
morning issue. While a newspaper
may only be printed six days a week,
the news of the world goes on just the
same for the full seven. That news is
just as essential on the seventh day as
on the other six, just as much in de
mand by the readers and just as much
enjoyed. When that fortunate time
comes in the history of a newspaper
that it is taken for its own sake, that
people become attached to the princi
ples which it professes and its methods
of presenting the news, the readers be
gin to regard it as a hardship that the
news field is not covered for them
every day in the week and that on one
day they must turn to other and less
favorite sources for their enlightment.
There comesa time when this demand
becomes so insistent that it can no
longer be denied.
It is this stage that The Journal has
reached. The demand for a Sunday
morning issue of The Journal has be
come so widespread that it can no
longer be resisted. Following its usual
custom to meet every reasonable de
mand upon it by the people it serves,
and who have faithfully stood by it
from the start, it has determined to
put forth a Sunday morning issue on
the 20th of the present month. This
will mean that for six days each week,
that is every week day, The Journal
will be printed in the evening, while
on one day in the week, that is Sun
day, it will be printed as a morning
All arrangements are now practically
completed for a superb staff of writers,
men and women of national fame. It
will have its own leased wire service to
cover the news fully and adequately
and more picturesquely than it has
ever before been done in Portland. It
will embrace many novel features,
many new and striking methods, but it
will stick closely to the fearless policy
which in two years has placed the eve
ning issue far in the forefront* in its
field and which we venture to say will
in much less time give its Sunday issue
