The Sumpter Lumber Company
During the past two months, perhaps a
dozen different parties have "figured on"
putting in n paper at Granite. Most of
these sought assiduously for a bonus.
Had there been but one applicant, he
doubtless could have secured a fat one, for
the citizens of that camp yearn for a local
newspaper, and the gentlemen at the head
of the townslte proposition need such an
instrument In their business. Hut as is
the custom of members of the craft, they
began to bid against each other, savagely
stabbing at each other's throats, and
(jranite will get a newspaper without
paying a bonus. Just how many will be
started there during the next thirty d.iys
is not now known.
S. P. Shutt, well known in this section
as the former owner of the Sumpter
News, returned from there Monday. He
says he has a w ritteu agreement with the
business men of the camp to patronize
the (jranite (Jem, the first number of
which he promises to issue in two weeks.
I he plant, he says, is already shipped.
He asked for no bonus, bought a lot and
contracted for the erection of a building,
investing his own good money and
thereby winning the coulideuce of the
J. Nat Hudson, founder of the Sump
trr News, having sold it to Mr. Shutt,
and then started the Cove Ledger, which
he still conducts, arrived in Sumpter Sun
d.iy evening and left for ( irauitc Monday
morning. He declares that lie, too, has
.1 printing plant en route to that camp of
alluring promise, and will get out a paper
while some other people are drowsily
"figuring." I he name of the paper will
1 be the (Jranite Houlder, which he
I c.spects to issue Saturday, the seventeenth

I a double source of revenue, that enables
J him to meet and overcome all competition.
His chief obstacle is to secure a building.
The Granite Publishing company, which
also proposes to start a newspaper there,

It is said that these men were due to make
'a move two weeks ago, and failing, have
lorteited whatever promises were made to
II. I:dsell, assistant tity editor of the
Portland Telegram, and some newspaper
men from Welser, Idaho, luve also been
to (jranite looking over the Held, with a
k lew to establishing papers there.
