STATE PRINTER CANDI
DATE FOR REN0IV1INATI0N
3. R. Whitney. Present Incumbent.
Gives Reasons Why He Should
, Win at the Primaries.
A mistaken idea prevails to some
ext nt as to the emoluments of the
state printer and the practical word
ings of the office. It is not the big
"fat" office it is accused of being.
In the first place tbe appropriation
for "printing" conveys wrong im
pression. The biennial appropriation
is cot for printing alone, bat includes
also ths cost of paper, ruling election
supplies and many smaller items,
amounting for the biennial period to
about t'23,Ouu. The last report of the
secretary of state to tbe legislature
will show these flgares to be correct
Then the state printer must provide
his own printing plant and pay all
running expenses of the office. The
pay rolls alone for the two years ex
c ed $35,000. The Salem Typographi
cal Union can bear ont the accuracy
of this statement. The cost of ma-
terial, a limited amount of work done
in outside union offices during a rosli
: .. .1. . ...... . - .11 .
inks, and a hundred other expenses,
adds fully $10,000 more. This makes
158,000 f expenses which the state
printer does not get.
Thus it will ba readily seen that
when the cost of production of tbe
priuting is taken iuto con'ideration,
the state printing office is not all pro
fit. It is just like any other priuting
business. It costs something to run it.
Criticism has been for vents directed
at the state printiug office and it seems
that it still coutinues. The present
state printer has beu accused of graft,
of dividing the profits of the office
with political bosses, and of a further
division for the use of th state print
ing pliut. There is absolutely no truth
in tin se statement. I pay f 100 per
month rental for the plant and no
more, which is considered a reasonable
rental. I bate a lea si do'y signed to
this effect, aud there has been no di
vision of the office with any person.
The fees paid the state printer are
fixed by law, and every item printed
is measured by an expert printer, ap
pointed by the governor, whose dnty
it is to measure the priuting and affix
the amount dne a provided by law.
Governor Chamberlain appointed to
this position Mr. Albert To.ier, a dem
ocrat, a practical printer, and secre
tary of the Oregon Press Association,
whose integrity is nnqnestioned and
who has measured all printing done
ami approved all bills therefor in strict
accordance with law. Every bill for
printing is ul-o carefully audited by
the secretary of state. Mr. Dunbar is
acknowledged to be one of ths best offi
cers the state has ever had, and his
auditing stump of approval is Bnffi icut
guarantee of honest accounting.
The state priuting office is a tirget
of attack without just reason. The
heavy cost of printing in past years
has been chiefly due to the large num
ber of copies printed. This has been
reduced by law, and the price now
paid by the state for most of the pub
lic printing is not above that charged
by tne printing firms of Portlaud, aud
some of it is considerably les.. For
some classes of work, especially where
a large number of copies ar' required
to be printed, the price snould be re
I have giveu this. subject careful
study, aud believe there are two meth
ods by which the cost of printing
could be kept down to a minimum.
One is to limit the volume of priuting
and revise the schedule of prices npon
an up-to-date basis, the same as that
of commercial priuting generally. The
other is for the state to own and oper
ate its own printing plant, and to pav
the state printer a reasonable flat, fixed
salary. Either of thee plans, or sim
ilar plans along these lines, which the
legislature might adopt for the better

HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
The regular weekly address to the
pnpHs of the High School by Qrants
Pass business men was given on Wed
nesday, the 21st, by L. B. Hall. Mr.
Hall'., speech was one of infinite
value to young men and women just
beignning to consider their life work,
for it contained he tried wisdom of
a practical man. Among other things
he sonnded a note of warning to the
boys when he remarked that the girls
are becoming very dangerous com
petitors for all the professions as well
as the clerical positious. What most
pleased boys and girls alike, how
ever, was the deep interest Mr, Hall
expressed in the welfare of the High
School. Sncb interest is serv help,
ful to our progress.
The students of the first rhetorical
division according to the new arrange
ment, rendered their first program in
the High School assembly room ou
Friday afternoon, March 23, at whioh
a number of visitors were present.
Because of the variety in the numbers
and the new interest shown by most
of the participants in their work.
this program was the most enjoyable
of the year. A few nonjhers that
showed especially good prpearatiou
were the recitations "The Tribula
tions of Biddy Malone," by Aunabelle
Lelth; "Microbes," by Anna May
Thomas; "Little Sammie Green,' by
Ernest Umphlette ; "Character
Sketch," by Harold O'Neill and
"Prophecy." by Edward O'Neill.
which certainly pictured a brillia'it
future for this city. But the last and
