"The problem for the bishops
and clergy of Oregon today is
not that which is supposed to be
long to a 'wild and woolly West,'
but the problem of trying to
make the Christian religion and
good citizenship keep pace with
the remarkable commercial de
velopments. I believe Oregon is
today the strategic field for the
church and that now is the psy
chological moment to advance."

FORCED INTO IT
By the Never Satisfied Paper Trust
and the Publishers of "Patent
Our readers will probably notice
that The Independent is all
home print this week, that the
big display of patent medicine
ads are missing, and the life
size portrait of Wise, the Tooth
Butcher, has been removed. In
explanation, and we believe our
readers will side with us, we
desire to say:
On October 1st the four news
papers in Washington county,
and in fact about every paper in
Oregon using patent insides, or
ready prints as they are called,
advanced the price of their pub
lications from $1 to $1.50 a year.
This they were force to do because
the sharks who control the price
of print paper pushed the price
up a notch or two every time the
moon changed, until publishers
were compelled to raise the sub
scription or go out of business.
The auxiliary house, (the place
where the patents are printed)
hearing of this action on the part
of the publishers, wrre at once
seized with a severe attack of
"wolf itch" and on Saturday
last all publishers using "patent
insides" received a circular from
the manager, which read:
"We have lately signed a con
tract for a year's supply of paper
for our ready print department
The price of paper has advanced
3-4 of a cent the Typographical
Union has increased its scale 110
per cent and the general running
expenses have also shown a heavy
increase and we find we are com
pelled to increase the price of
And the raise is not a three-
quarters of a one-cent one, but
they put the screws to us to the
tune of 2 cents on every quire,
so that the 50-cents raise on our
subscription price is more than
eaten up by the "patent inside"
And there is another thing our
readers do not know, and it is
the fact that publishers do not
and never have received a single
cent for the five or six columns
of advertising run weekly on the
patent side of the paper. These
advertisements are pretty much
all for patent medicine 'slush,
such as "S. S. S," 'Teruna,"
"Ayers Pills," the "Chinese
Doctor," "Cheney's Catarrh
Cure, " and a dozen or more of like
nature, and are a nightmare to
every publisher who has used the
patents, and who have been try
ing for years to get the ready
print house to cut them out, but
without success, for thi3 class of
advertising is a genuine gold
mine to them, as few country
newspapers will accept medicine
ads at any price, unless they are
reliable and of some worth, and
this can be said of but few of
them. And for this reason the
patent dope, men seek the ready
print houses and by pacing a
good round sum get their an
nouncements published in papers
whose owners would not give
them space at any price.
For the reasons stated above
we have discontinued the patents
and The Independent will be
printed all at home in the future.
If four pages are not enough for
advertising and the news of city
and county, and that of a gen
eral nature, we shall increase
the number to six, eight or ten
if need be, and w hat money is
saved by getting away from the
"patent insides" and patent med
icine vultures will be used in im
proving our office and giving our
readers a better paper.

L. J. Palmateer, Prop.
1907 rings down the curtain
during a rapidly disappearing un
easiness, with the people in a
hesitating mood regarding imme
diate investments, but at the
same time it has been the most
wonderful year the Pacific North
west ever enjoyed. In no other
twelve months was there so
much money brought into the
country from the wheat crop;
fruit scored its biggest success,
lumber added many more mil
lions of dollars than ever before;
the same is true of the products
of the dairy, while the grower of
poultry has nothing to complain
of. We are rich and prosperous,
in epit of the fact that there ap
pears to be a stringency, more a
matter of mind than reality.
Let us quit bemoaning imaginary
troubles, inspire confidence and
get ready to eclipse in 1908 our
past year's record, wonderful as
it has been.
Portland is particularly proud
of the fact that she was first
among the one hundred leading
cities of the United States to pay
every demand made upon her in
coin, and from the first moment
since the "lid was lifted" Mon
day, December 16th, the amount
of gold in each of the banks has
constantly increased and now it
is pouring in at the rate of $100,-
000 a day.

given Oregon an immense amount
of complimentary prominence as
a result of the Bishop's work.
His best effort is a letter just J
printed in the New York Tribune
