THE PRESS LOBDY.
In a world where everyone Is pretty
much after tho dollar It Is refreshing
to consider tho press agent and tho
press bureau. Every editor knows
them but they seem to avoid the ad
vertising manager. Doing' a wholly
altruistic work In helping the strug
gling newspaper fill its columns, tho
press agent never sees what a greater
altruism It would bo to help fill Its
coffers as well.
How Innocent they are! How
trustful! How cor tain that either
lack of copy or our lack of brains
will mako us seize tlte Innocent con
tribution and rush It to a place on
pago one. Innocent Indeed. Better
tho adjectives used by President Wil
son In 'describing the lobby, "power
ful and insidious." The articles thoy
send us aro always free. There Is no
expense. Wo have only to set them
up and ask for more.
But what are these articles, these
news "stories" that are furnished
us so freely. Here Is an article tell
ing what a loss a Western city Is en
during under municipal ownership of
Its street lights, and with It a beau
tiful editorial all headed and ready to
run pointing out how bad municipal
ownership Is. Who ,1s behind It?
Someone Interested In hurting munic
ipal ownership. We wonder how
many editors will fall for this and
make tho prejudiced views of an un
known tbos of their free editorial
Here hi another from a political
jtarty headquarters. The Progres
sives of Portland, It says, have Just
won a "smashing victory" In the oloe-
tlon of Albeo. That truly Is news,
but it is not meant to be. . It Is the
Idea someone In Washington has of
what will make people think the Pro
gressive party Is becoming a power In
political affairs. Does any reader of
the Portland papers supposo that the
Oregonlan Is supporting the Progres
sive party. It supported Albee.
And the soniethlng-for-nothlng
activity of the press agency Is not
confined to politics. For instance,
the other day there came an Innocent
advertisement from an Oregon state
Institution of learning. We wero to
be paid fdr the ad, on the stipulated
condition that if paid for It we would
run a series of brief ortfolos kindly
supplied by the Institution, and, of
course, run them gratis. There was
a clear-cut effort to graft a lot of free
advertising on tho tall of a very lit
tle legitimate nald-for 'copy In a
"minor way it was an effort to steal
news columns by advertising patron
Tho fact of the matter is that nono
of this stuff Is news. If it Is news, It
Is the tainted kind. It Is the product
of something in the nature of a lobby
a lobby In the public forum. It Is
Intended to make the public think Its
way. Some day after the lobbyists
aro all registered we jihall begin to
have bells put on the press bureaus,
During tho last year wo have scon
too much of tilts' sort ot thing. In
deed, It nlmost seems as If Betid was
coming to be a marked town ti town
of "eaSy marks" whore anyone with
n little gall, bluff nnd buuconibo could
null the wool over tho eyes of his vic
A first class way toward romedylng
tills Is to make special effort to pun
ish the most recent offender, W. D.
Curscy, whoso scalawag operations
last week rlohly merit every ounce of
punishment which the law can secure
for him. It Is, ot course, llko closing
tho door after tho horse is gone, but
even at that It Is entirely worth while
to catch this particular rascal and
make an example of him. It might
dampen the ardorot others.
And In tho meantime, why not shut
down hard on the next ono who comes
along. It may not always bo popular
ising, but It certainly Is good business
to mako newcomers show who and
what they are boforo extending credit
to them. Too much croduttty Is ex
pensive. It encourages crookedness,
and It hurts your bank account.

Th Art of Economy.
All economy, whether of state,
households or Individual, mny bo de
fined to be tho art of managing labor.
Now, wo linvo witrjied tho
word "economy" In our English lan
guage Into a meanlug which It has no
business whatever to boar. In our
use of It It constantly signifies merely
sparing or saving economy of money
means saving money; economy of
time, sparing time, and so on. But
that Is a wholly barburous use of tho
word barbarous In a doublo sense, for
It U not EnglUb. and It U bad urcek:
barbarous in a treble sense, for. It is I
not English, It Is bad lirook, nml it
Is worse souse. Economy no more
menus saving money than It menus
spending money. It means the nd

Urick is absolutely fire proof in any ordinary conflagration.
lkiek Buildings never burn, although they arc sometimes
injured by falling timbers or combustible interior woodwork.
A brick building is absolutely fire proof if wire glass is used
in the windows and if burned clay floors are used.
An interior fire in such a building is confined to the room in
which it originates; no outside fire can attack it.
The proportion of burned clay in a building construction
measures its fire proof qualities.
Burned clay is the only building material that has been
through the fire before you get it, in such a manner that it will
resist fire. All combustible material is burned out of the brick
before you get it.
