The Repub lican Publicity association, through Us president, Hon. Jonathan Bourne. Ja., recently gave out the following state ment from Its Washington headquarters: "No other Business hus been hit hard er by the war than the newspapers bus iness, particularly in the smaller cities - . . . ..u cuumry towns. , i ne large metro politan papers have probably suffered least- During mv. more than 1.200 publications went out of business. Afl- ...onuig euowance ror new paper started, it appears that there was a net less of sixty-two dailies and 69 week lies. "The mortality statistics for 1918 will probably show as great a loss, for the shortage of paper, the increasing cost of all kinda of supplies, and the higher wicmcr wna me neavy can upon newspaper men for military service, have been more severe this yesr than last. "And one of the serious features of the situation is that the people of the country probably do not realize that the most valuable portion of the press has uoiamu me greatest loss. Lnder pop ular government the country press, in eluding not only country weeklies, but the smaller dailies, is the real voice or the people. Editors of large metropoli tan papers do not have and cannot have the close touch with the people that is a necessary incident of the life of tha countiy editor. Just as Washrington. I A cnTrnoT D.

The. large metropolitan press represents the com mercial factors. Just as production is the first essenf . Vf ' permanent "pros perity, so the UXvntennr.ee of fnat or- tion of the press that speaks for the producers is most important. "The metropolitan press has ita place in our national life and nobody wishes It 111. The fact remains, however, that the vital interests of the nation are most promptly and most clearly repre sented and the thought of the reople most freely and most courageously voiced by the country press. The peo ple of the county may not see it now, but they will some day realize that the large preponderance of suspensions among the weekly publications is a men ace to national welfare."
