subscription, and that's one cent a day. So it isn't under any more
obligation to the richest man in town than it is to anybody who has
a cent and buys the paper.
Believing actually in equal rights for all and special privileges
to none, The Day Book can carry the theory out in practice, because
it gets no money from advertisers or special interests.
The editor and publisher of The Day Book is N. D. Cochran,
for ten years editor of The Toledo News-Bee, who will, from time
to time, tell his readers, through these columns, everything there
is to know about the Day Book and its purposes.
This matter will be discussed further tomorrow.
