The people of Albany seem to be demanding better
newspapers, which is a good and wholesome sign of that
community's life and spirit. Good newspapers make good
towns because they have large subscription lists and in
turn interest their subscribers in the town and its busi
ness interests, and afford a medium for carrying their
business talks to the people of the surrounding country.
The Capital Journal has frequently called attention to
this fact and it cannot be too strongly impressed upon a
community, because the people cannot expect to have
good newspapers unless they patronize "them. The
Capital Journal has 4200 subscribers, or 21,000 regular
readers daily, showing that the people of the Salem
territory want a newspaper and are eager to do their
share to make it stronger and better, but not all the
businessmen appreciate the value of such an excellent
vehicle for advertising their business before its big family
of readers. And this is a condition that obtains in many
communities and the mail order houses and city depart
ment stores are taking advantage of it to their great
But here is how the Albany Herald replies to the de
mand for a better newspaper and it tells some facts
which it is well that every community should know. It
requires money and a great deal of.it to run a newspaper
that really gives the news, and some- persons who com
plain loudest about their home papers pay least toward
supporting them. The Herald says, after showing that
it would require revenues of at least $n0,000 a year to
print a newspaper in that city which would meet the ex
pressed requirements of the people:
"No one will deny that the people as renders should ho bolter off if they
spool iHB.lMHI for n good newspaper nnnunlly. It takes only 4,2t5 subscribers
ut :i.5() each year to make the 15,0(10. To secure that number of subscribers
ut that rate it is only necessary to make a right good paper. People in this
coininunitv are now paying at leant $15,0(10 annually to outside papers because
the local 'papers do not' satisfy them. The payrolls used in manufacturing the
outside papers bought in this community are not helping the community very
much . It would be better to have the payrolls required to print papers for
the community here in Albany. The greater pnrt of the expense of publishing
a newspaper is the item of labor. Where money is paid tor labor it soon
reaches the other businesses of the community.
" At least 500,000 is being sent from this community annually for mer
chandise Hint should be handled in Albany stores. If by properly using n good
newspaper three-fifths of this nmount were brought to Albany the entire com
munity should be greatly benefited. To bring ;:00,000 more business to our
flores is only a matter of the employment of vigorous, intelligent business
methods. Aibnny is now doing n business of more than 700,000 annually,
mid to ncbl :U0,000 would bring it to more than a million. The Advertisers
could spend two per cent of the total business with one newspaper, giving the
paper !!O.OOn, und benefit themselves greatly and benefit the community in
general. The payroll of the pnper would benefit the. community. At least 25
per cent of the :i00,000 would stny inthe community, Thn additional business
would make it possible for the business man to reduce tho cost of each dol
lar 'h worth of business done by at least 10 per cent. In the case of the mer
chant he could sell goods to the people lit least 10 per cent cheaper. The buyers
would ne 10 per cent nm! after the advertising hill has been paid the mer
chant would have a profit on almost 50 per cent more sales. No one litis felt
(lie weight of Intelligent udvertising. Then we must conclude that the news
paper is n barometer to the Intelligence of the business men of (he community.
As Hie business men develop In modem methods of doing hiiMiics Albany can
have n -heller newspaper."

The rapid increase in the tax rate in Oregon is one of
the really live issues before the people. Too many of
ficials for the enforcement of experimental laws, too
many fads enacted into law, and a general disregard for
economy in public txpenditures are the causes which have
no doubt brought about this condition, but the remedy,
if there be any, is not apparent, because we are only con
stantly going from bad to worse with each attempt of
the biennial legislative session to give relief. Still not
all the blame rests with the state government since many
county officials throughout the state are lax in guarding
expenditures, and the public schools are demanding and
receiving more each year for their maintainance. As a
matter of fact there may be no available remedy for high
taxes but it is worth discussing and thinking about,
Benton county affords a fair example of the increase
of taxation, if we may take the following from the Ben
ton County Courier as a statement of fact and no doubt
I it is the editor also in a general way only suggesting a x
, remedy; that is he seems to emphasize the fact that the
way to economize is to economize:
"In 190:5 Benton county taxes aggregated $4:1,000.
"In 1914 they had jumped to $:501,000, an increase of
seven hundred per cent.
"This condition can't continue and Benton continue
, to be a Blue Ribbon county.
"It will soon bring about a condition where every
body is a seller and nobody a buyer a condition that will
cut values in half and demoralize real estate.
"Nearly every county in Oregon is facing this condi
tion. There are few that will show Benton's enormous
increase, but all show far too great increases.
"There is one safe thing to do, reduce these taxes to
the size of Benton county, get back to the wheelbarrow
pace until we get to automobile size.
