THE DAILY CATITAL JOURNAL
la the only newspaper la Salem whoee eirculHti.m U guaranteed by the
Audit Bureau Of Circulation!
THE ZONE NEWSPAPER POSTAGE LAW.
The Corvallis Gazette-Times expresses our sentiments
in replying to the Oregonian's attack upon Postmaster
Burleson's zone postage rate law. This saves us the
work of writing an editorial on the subject in these swel
tering July days, hence we reprint the Gazette-Times
editorial in full: , . ' ,
" 'It would tie interesting to have from the Capital
Journal or any ether paper a reason why postal charges
should begin at the county line and not at the office of
publication,' says the Oregonian in defense of the maga.
rines which are kicking about the system of paying post
age under the zone law. ,
"This seems to be an invitation by the Oregonian that
it is ready to take on all comers and that ringside weight
is not a handicap. The Journal is absolutely able to take
care of itself, but as one of the country papers supposed to
lie benefitted by the zone law we hasten to butt in and say
that there is no reason whatever why the place of publica
tion should not be designated as the spot from which port
al charges should be made. Such a charge would make
very little difference to the Salem Daily Journal or the
Daily Gazette-Times over DO per cent of whose papers are
delivered by carrier. The postage on the weeklies would
lie insignificant.1 t ' A
"It would also be interesting to know if the Oregon
ion approves the old system whereby the government
practically subsidized the magazines of the country to the
extent of many millions of dollars annually. Careful es
timates by the postal authorities and congressional com
mittees, for instance, show that the Curtis Publishing
Co' has been receiving a gratuity from the government
amounting to $5,000,000 a year. Hundreds of other mnga-r-inw
and iarge daily newspapers benefit accordingly. Does
the Oreronian believe this is either fair or good business

By Walt Mason
I have a home that's pretty slick, a mansion made of
wood and brick; the window panes are mostly glass, the
doorknob is of costly brass. And there are screens to
keen out flies, and in the pantry there are pies; electric
laps kick up a breeze wnen lorriu sunmu-r u.;, ui.i'u-.
Oh, there a man in pence might rest, and feel that he was
tloulilv blest, if he had sense enough to stay in th.it large

Mne double-bug infers his brain; he loaves his mansion
for a shack in sylvan ghde or mountain track; ho scraps
villi 1"fs through weary nights, and ruffers from mos

carries water nineteen miles, and lives on beans Mid has

home that's slick as grease, and there, if sane, I'd live in

mountain lions round me whoop, and drink warm water

SCOnS MILS VOTERS
DECIDE NOT TO GIVE UP
PRESENT CITY CHARTER
At an election held yesterday in
Scotts Mills, the voters were naked to
expresa their opinion on the question,
".shall the city of Scotts Milia Mincnd
er its charter and be dis-incorpornted! "
When the votes were counted tins morn
ing it was found that 10 were in favor
of giving up the charter, 55 were op
posed and 2 voted in such a way tnnt
the votes were thrown out, making &
totnl of H7 votes cast.
Two or three years ago SeotU Mills
decided to do some cxpnnding and a lot

Hut a few weeks ago some of the far

wasn't right they should be taken in to

votes to enll the election. Accoiding to

tending to their prune trncts within the
city limits of Scotts Mills with very
little prospects of getting out.
