The circulation of the Daily Capital Journal for the month of November
was divided as follows:
Average daily circulation in city of Salem, 2161; average daily circulation
by mail 1912; total average daily circulation 4073.
This circulation statement is printed because the publishers of the Capital
Journal believe that businessmen have a right to know what they are paying for
when they buy advertising space in a newspaper. We make no circulation claims
simply a statement of circulation facts, which any advertiser is at liberty to in
vestigate for himself. . Our mailing lists, carrier lists and press run figures are
at his service. We have no circulation secrets because we have" no cause to be
ashamed of our subscription list, and no good reason for misrepresenting it in
I any respect.
The Capital Journal believes that it has by far the largest circulation of anv
newspaper attempting to cover this field and it is a legitimate subscription
not padded by fake voting contests 'or wholesale distribution . of premiums.
Furthermore, 97 per cent of this circulation is in Marion and Polk counties,
directly tributary to the City of Salem.

Tho representative!! nf th s,,(i,
Pacific came to the second meeting of
the land grant committne
dowed with authority to treat finally
with the committee in behalf of the
railroad relativo to the final disposi
tion of tho 0. & C. lands. Attorney
Ralph Moody, Assistant Hunnrnl Man
ager Campbell from the headquarters
office at San Francisco, aud Tax Agent
McAllister represented tho rnilmn j
Governor Withycombe, Secretary of
State Olcott, State Treasurer Kay and
Siioi Garland of the committee, appear-
uiutobib or me state.
While Mr. Campbell was prepared to
accept or reject any proposition that
might ba mndo for a compromise it
was evident thnt tho railroad would re
cood from none of tho points adhered to
ia the first conference nnd any com
promise would bo made by the state's
representatives. Attorney Moody be
gan tho conference by atating the stand
of tho railroad in tho matter of the
O. & C. lands. He said in substance
that tho railroad would adhere to the
terms of tho decision of the U. 8. su
promo court which stnted that the fee
simplo title to tho land was vested in
tho railroad company nnd that the lr 1
should be in private ownership no tl '
it would bo on tho tax roll and in fol
lowing closely the statements mado in
the address by Attorney Dunne he drew
tho conclusion thnt the railroad contil
chooso its own sweet time to disnnsn nf
the lnnd.
The final decision in the mnttor, he
recalled, must bo in the hands of con
gress and it was not within tho power
of congress to force the immediate snl
of tho lands. Tho disposition to actuat
sottlors he snid was impracticable as
such a small part of tho land was suit
able for agriculture. He hold that, th"
$2.50 an acre provision was simply a
restrictive clause and was not directory
and thnt, tho only possible jntereats of
tho slate in the lands was as regards
general welfnro and tho tax roll. Th
remarks of. Mr. Moody plainly Indicat
ed that tho railroad would consider any
compromise that regarded the rights
the state as entirely outside of any
legal clnim.
Governor Withycombe Baid thet
whilo tho state might be shy of a legal
right to tho land it has a moral rieht
since the development of the stnto has
mado tho lnnd increase in value from
2.50 at tho time of tho grant to SO an
aero in some instances today. He agreed
that it was not fair to limit the rail
road to an equity of i'2f() an acre in
tho land and thnt the railroad should
be recouped for its Iosscb In transport
ing troops. Ho slnted that the tVibo
lund should bo sold at its commercial
value and that the agricultural lands
should be sold at $2.50 an acre and that
tho surplus wns iu tho timbor now on
tho lands.
Stnto Treasurer Kay said that the
government granted tho lnnd to the
railroad and that the government hail
no further interest in tho land but
since the stale was responsible for t'"
increase in value that the stnto should
hnve the benefit of this increasn ns th
railroad did not comply with the torma
of the grant and thnt tho tillable land
should be sold at 2.5(1 an acre and
that the railroad should be paid some
thing above 2.50 an aero to repay
them for their losses in transporting
troops nnd other losses of tho company
rclntivo to the lands.
Governor Withycombe stated thnt ac
cording (o his information there wern
1,000,000 ncrcs of tho land thnt could
bo used for agriculture but Kay dis
agreed with tho governor and Olcott '
opinion wns in occordaneo with tho
views of Kay. In the statement of Mr.
Olcott he agreed in tho main with th
views of Mr. Kny that tho land should
bo sold to nctunl settlers at the actual
value and thut tho timber should b
sold at Its actual commercial value.
Both were desirous of kcoping tho land
out of a forest reserve as was the op
inion of the wnnindor of the oommit
tee. This shadow of a forest reserve ap
pears to bo one of tho main considera
tions of the railroad company and
about the only element to be feared by
tho corporation.
