Owes Much to the Country
Newspaper Man. f
A leading editorial recently pub
lished in the Timberman. of Pottland.
a journal devoted to the lumber indus-
rv of the Northwest, discusses " What
tne Lumber. Industry Owes to the
Country Newsoaper Man. While
much of the article deals with the
lumber trade there is a lot of good
things eaid touching other lines, and
we are disposed to give the entire
article for the good it obtains.
There is no set of men engaged in
anv linp of business effort who give
more and receive less in the way of
compensation than the editor of the
average country newspaper. He is
expected to be the mouthpiece and
personal crgan of every cause in which
his community is interested. It rarely
ever happens when a local organiza
tion for mutual benefit to the town in
which he lives n to be formed by a
few live, Drorgessive, but often very
thrifty citizens, that the cost of the
necessary and absolutely essential pub
licity is pnid to the local editor. He
is supposed to be a charitable mega
phone and too often he is lor any
body or anvthicg that happens along.
The local merchant oltcn feels that
the small monthly pittance doled out
in exchange for a generous advertis
ing space, like money donated to any
charitable institution omhan asylum
or a home for the feeble tuicded. It
rarely occurs to the local, merchant,
irrespective of whether he is a dry
goods merchant, grocer or local retail
lumber dealer, or simnlv an individ
ual who has decided that merchandis
ing consists in buying a few goods and
marking uo the price without regard
to qnality or previous condition of ser
vltude. And this la often too often
the type of merchant he has to deal
To succeed, the average country
newspaper man has to be as wise as
serpent and harmless as a dove. The
plea of many of the merchants against

of The Timberman editor to be present
The resolution which hits the nail
squarely on the head when a lot of
maudlin sympathy is, being exteneded
to the mossback merchant, is to the
point. Here it is:
We further believe that the n er
chants of the small cities and towns -ire
in a measure responsible for the in
roads of the mail order houses upon
their trade. Having the advantage of
immediate and personal contact with
their customers, they should. by
adopting modern merchandising meth
ods and through intelligent and persis
tent adveitisiug, be able to oomDete
successfully with said mail order
The resolution also deprecated the
sending of money away to the various
large cities when the goods can be
purchased at home for less money,
believing that such a course is inimi
cal to the development and upbuilding
of the community. Sound.' reason

country newspaper men who have

poienancy of grief and shedding of

This no brings us no to the crux
of this article: What the lumber
manufacturing in teres s owe to the
country newspapers, and the policy
they should pursue towards tem.
A reoital of a few of the active
campaigns which these powerful lonal
organs for moulding public opinion
have assisted to carry to success:
The forest fire legislation of the
various Western States was made pos
sible largely through thier advocacy
of the cauf-e. '
Without the aid of the country
newspapers the strong and vigorous
Dublic sentiment which sustains ' the
efforts of the local state forest fire
a?sociatinns, and the brrader work of
the Western Forestry and Conserva
tion Association would not be posai-
In National affairs the country
newspapers of the States of Montana,
Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Cali
fornia did their full share in the pas
sage of the amendment to the Inter
state Commerce Act, which gurantees
to every shipper the right to be hear J

table freight rate is as essential to
the manufacturer as a stable currency.

West than to any other single indus
In thia brief cursory review of some
of the mesures which the country press
has aided, the writer speaks with au
thority, as it came to his hand to help
create the sentiment which made pos
sible the enactment of much of this
When labor troubles come and
they come unbidden like a plague of
locusts the I. W. W. horle swept all
before them for a time. The country
press, always conservative, counselled
the men to remain and work, and dis
couraged the movement in every way
possible. .
Iu financial crises in many a con-
muuity the persoual equation of the
editor of the local newspaper often
scarcely known and little appreciated,
ias helped them stem the tide of dis
aster. . But why continue?
What can be done by the lumber
industry to repay an' continue to de
serve the support of these brave coun
try newspaper men who with often
only a hatful of type help fight the
battles? One word tells it all: Ad-
veitise and advertise liberally. See
that every man jack around the mill
and office subscribes for the paper.
Have your job work printed by the
local press, wherever possible. If
the local newspaper offices are not
equipped to do the work, let them
handle the order. The big printer in
the city w 111' pav a commission and in
time, as the community develops, the i Charlie
local plant will be prepared to do the
work; but give him a chance first.
- We are hearing a great deal these
days of what the retail iomber dealer
owes the local newspaper. This is
doubtless true but the manufacturer
of lumber owes more. He owes the
very creation of just laws which he'o
him to do business. This means more
than anything eke to a manufacturer.
