The situation has become o serious
that a dozen different rcmedlsi have
een advocated and adopted recently.
Cutting down the slie of the paper or
the advertising Is only one of these.
Halting tho price of the newspaper and
watching to detect the smallest waste "f
paco are other devices adopted.
A. Gordon Mclntyre, a retired otflcl il
ef the Canadian I'ulp and l'ltper Asso
ciation nnd an authority In tin paper
trade, has been chosen by the Amerlcvi
Newspaper Publishers Association to
tart a new department. He will confer

paper manufacturers. To some uf thuya
In the newspaper publishers' ranks It
looks as though the country rinlll nnd

Wood I'ulp Imparts Decrease.
A significant fact Is that the Imports

paper, have dropped In the last ye'
I despite the fact that there Is a normal
Increase of f per cent. In consumption
In 19U the Imports amounted to E08,
110 tons. The next year 80.000 more
tons were brought In. This year the ton.
pace was 1,000 less than In 1914 and
1,000 less than In 1915. These figures
Were for the year ended June 30.
Not only on the other side were trade
conditions upset, but also here. As the
result of Increased wages In Canada and
other Industrial factors the mechanical
pulp that Used to come over the border
In treat quantities now dribbles through.
A despatch from Toronto contained an
Intimation by the Canadian Minister of
Finance that nn embargo on exports of
news print might be ordered If the price
i In the domestic market were found to ha
excessive. On the other sldo of the bor
'drr, as In this country, the try has been
raised that the inauuf-icturrrs have been
hoMlr.c up tho consumers, but here at
least luveht'gatlon has shown that there

I'ulillshrm Karlntr a Crisis,
It Is estimated that 1,900,000 tons of
pews print wilt have been used In this
country by December of this year. The
normal Increase of S per cent, a year
would brine the 1918 consumption to
more than 2,000,000 tons, which calls
for an additional dally production of
from 00 to Rdfi tons. Hut experts In
terested In the newspapers' side of tho
situation can only cf3 ion tons dally In
crease In 1918 over 1910. That brings
the publisher face to face with the riues

The American mills are faced with

WOOD CHIPS FOR PAPER PULP.
Wisconsin Mills to Experiment
With Product of the West.
Wasiiinoton, Oct. 15. As the result
of studies made at the forest products
laboratory on methods of handling
wood chips sultnble for paper pulp. It
Is announced that W Isconsln pauer
companies are now negotiating with the
railroads for shipment of experimental
tralnloads of chips of Western woods
adapted to paper making.
Investigations have demonstrated
that good grades of paper can be made
from a number of Western woods. The
experts njw estimate that some of these
woods can be delivered to tne mills in
Wisconsin at a very small advance over
tho cost of chips made from local tim
ber. If a favorable freight rate can
be obtained the great quantity of pulp-
wood on the national torests anouid
prove to be a considerable factor In
supplying raw material.

"And If the authorities of the city

would say: 'I will have none of your

There was nn echo In the Cnrdlnal's
address of the recent charities Investi
gations when he spoke of a recent "at
tack made on the administration of pub.

tutions. Cardinal Farley said that as
n result of the charges made then, but
later dismissed by the courts, the
church here was "living under a crush.
Ing load of Injustice."
Religious training In the schools also
formed part of an address which was to
have been delivered by the Hev. Dr.

Idea that "there Is little hope for the

These are merely samples. Time and

He had the nerve In West Virginia

about the "Virginia debt" that the

that West Virginia owed a lot of money
to lrglnla nnd that It was the duty
of the questioner and ever) body else to

Is that an iipparent tendency on the part
of labor to support Mr. Wilson on ac

Missouri looks especially good from

Railroad clerks are aggrieved over the

Tho mining districts want protection, for
