these one hundred papers have been |
publishing. Ii is proposed to establish
a farmers' union paper. j
We are inclined lo think this a mis- '
lake. Willi the ir ne.ws bureau proper- i
ly e<Tiled and handled by the papers I
that were handling il. liiey would
reach a great many more people with
tire information which they desire to <
disseminate than Ihev can possibly <
reach through an organ. There will 1
be a great many of their own mem- <
hers who will not feel like paving I
the subscription price for another \
'Such an enterprise cannot be a financial
success ami will not do the <
good that is being (tone through the i
news bureau department of the union.
Personally it will not have any
effect on the newspapers which have
been handling the bureau 'stuff but it i
will take awav from the members of 1

NEWSPAPER SUBSCRIBERS. <
The Saluda Standard says that un- <
der the ruling of I lie postolltce department
requiring cash, il had to cut off
three hundred subscribers nud that 1
these subscribers own? il oil an aver- <
age of a little more than $2 each, i
That is a considerable amount for a
weekly paper. :
The Herald and News under this I
ruling was forced to rake off six bun- I
dred subscribers and il would be safe
to say that these six hundred owed
lis an average of $7 each. Some of
I liein have paid and we are continuing :
to hope thai the otheis will also pa v.
\\ are ^! i 11* of iIh' opinion that the
people ol ihU countv are honest and |l
intend lo pay their rtonest debts. i
We wrole each one of those whose j i
names \\ ? have taken off a letter
staling that if it u s impossible for
them to pay all of ihe back indebled- 1
no>?s we would be pleased to have
part of il ami if il were not possible
to pay an\ ot il we would appreciate
these subscribers coming forward and
paying us for au advance subseript
A good many of tlieni have done so
already. We have heard thai some
of them who owed us for several years
and whose names we have taken off
have subscribed for our contemporary
without saying anything Jo The Herald
and News. We have no objection
to them subscribing to our contemporary's
paper, but it is, to nay
the least, a lack of appreciation for
past indulgence not to come forward
and renew their subscript ion1 to The
Herald and News on a cash basis.
The rule which the government has
adopted in regard to subscription, we
believe is a good one and will work to
the advantage of the publisher as
"well as the subscriber.
The editor of this paper knows
that he has been more indulgent and
more lenient in Ihe matter of extending
credit to subscribers than his financial
ability warranted but we have
tried to maintain our confidence in Ihe
integrity and honesty of our subscribers
and we shall continue to believe
that they will pay these small
amounts. It. would be a very small
matter for each one but in the aggre
gate would mean a great deal to u
