THE PI EpS OF t OF PRESSING CONCERN TO EVERY i NEWSPAPER PUBLISHER?SAID TO BE GOING HIGHER. | ^ ...V: , Report! From Many Sections Are to I the' Effect That" Another General i Raise li In Sight?Comment From i Many Sources. r ?? 1 From the Paper Trade. Another Print Raise Slated. The recent raise of print three dollars a ton IS accepted gracefully by the trade Inasmuch as they know the cost of production warrants. It Is among the probabilities another raise will materialize early In October, or about 30 days from date. No contracts are wanted as conditions of manufacture will not admit Low water, together with scarcity of wood means scarcity of pulp, and which means scarcity of print paper. A magician might, perhaps, estimate to-day what he could buy raw materials for some months later, but a careful mill operator cannot therefore no contracts. The Print Situation. In commenting on a meeting of pub Ushers in New York City the Fourth Estate of September Wsays the principal theme of dlscusison was the white print paper situation. ? T|le presence of so manynewspaper publishers in New .York 1 affords a convenient opportunity for a i discussion that shall go to the bottom of the most important matter connected with newspaper production in America to-day. 1 Since the Spanish war. nine years 1 ago, the circulation of newspapers in i this country has grown enormously. In some Instances the gain has been i the reward of hayd, persistent and J well-directed work by publishers. In < other cases It seems to have come ol I its own accord without special effort 1 by the papers. 1 The conllnuance of general pros- 1 fierity, the Increase in population, the I spread of popular education, a quick- 1 ened eagerness to know what is going < on in all parts of the world and the 1 crowding of great events affecting ! this republic are among the causes to < which the amazing growth of news- 1 ... It i.. . I imjjur lemuiift ity aiu luuwu. Whatever the reasons (or It may be. the situation Is full of difficulty for 1 the publishers." At the best there Is I little profit In newspaper sales anil at 1 the worst there Is a heavy loss, that ' grows heavier as the price of pnper rises. A 12 page newspaper costs the publisher more for paper alone than 1 he gets Irom the newsdealers. The situation has been hard enough dur- I ing the present year, with paper at c $1.95 a hundred pounds In carloau I lots. 1 For nest year the Independent 11 paper makers are quoting $2.00 and s $2.70. The International Paper Com- 1 pany is making no quotations at all, f but Informs publishers that it has no <1 paper for sale at present. c Scarcity of Paper. I The season haj been bad in the a paper trade, because the summer was c dry ami the streams that furnish I power were low. The destruction ot ' the forests Is an old story and at the 1 present rate of consumption the end 11 of the pulp supply is not far ahead, t Publishers who usually have at this c time of ibe year paper enough to last 1 two or three months say they have " only one month's supply on hand and 1 that deliveries on existing contracts t are very slow. c From time to time reports have t been heard of new Inventions for ' making pnper from other material I than wood pulp. But none of these P devices has yet been found to be c commerMally profitable. t Inasmuch as the revenue of a news- tl paper comes mostly from advertise- >' mentR on obvious method of relief e from present difficulties would be to t Increase rntes. Such a course might <1 be justified, it is said, not merely by 'I pleading higher expense of newspaper production, but by the powerful argument of the great Wcrease in circulation. V On the other hand, It Is said that, In large cities particularly, advertisers are paying all they can be induced to 6 pay. Granting all that Is urged about b good times, steady employment at high wages and the swelling of the h army ol newspaper readors, general ti advertisers say that there is something to be considered on the other n side. ?" For example, the crusade against P< proprietary medicines which has been going on for tn'o years is alleged to n hare .diminished the sales of honest It and meritorious articles as well as of fakes and frauds, and therefore advor- ci tising Is not productlre enough to pi warrant nn increase In rates. si It Is also to be considered that gi weeklies of national circulation and magazines are going after newspaper it advertisers with a fair measure of sue- ci cess and are, of course, ready to take at advantage of any false move made by ci their rivals. . ~ ( A few days ago a reporter for the ilCE ' PAPER injured by the attacks on patent niedt jctaWand' that.he. *a* making up a list of religions papers and qtherweefc lies In which to place future onlerst What definite 'aotion.ft any, -will <yme from the conference cannot even be guessed at now. it la suggested that the paper question might be disposed of In a way and for a time by limiting circulation or by decreasing tne site of the papers. But it'Is frankly admitted that neither of these expedients would be more than a make shift. The proposal to start paper mills owned by the newspapers may como up, but It Is pointed out that the selection and acquirement of sites and the building and equipment of mills would take at least a year, even If matters were rushed at breakneck speed. \ Some relief. It Is suggested, might follow the repeal of the duty on Canadian pulp, but that could be accomplished only after a long agitation In congress. Something must be done right away.

Several of the weekly newspapers of the State have Increased their subscriptions from one dollar to >1.50 per year and many more will have to do so before the end of another year. This advance has become necessary Dn account of the Increased cost of overythlng that goes Into the making of a newspaper. Paper has advanced fully 50 per cent, within the past 12 months, while type, ink nnd other material has gone up fully 25 per cent. Moat of the weeklies In the Slate are published and sold at one dollar a ear. which Is equal to less than two cents per copy. The blank paper costs more tbsn one-half the sum. so t can readily be seen that after payng office rent, salaries, postago and other expenBes, a newspaper with a drculatlon of 1,000 or less subscribers it one dollar each per year, Is not is good n paying piece of property as i dividend paying gold mine.

Even with the print inper price where It is now It Is no ongor profitable to print newspapers ind supply them at the prevailing iub8cription prices and there Is but Ittle doubt that cither the prices will :o up or the size of the papers come lown. For the weekly papers of the ountry an advanced subscription irice has become nn absolute necesIty both for the home-print and the me using a Ready-Print. The various teady-Print concerns have been forced o raise the prices because of the leavy Increase In the price of paper, nd itl s up to the publisher to boost lis subscription price to cover the inreasod cost of producing his paper. This means that the good weekly iews|iaper shouldasell for two dollars ier year cash In advance. With the irlnt paper business all In the hands if one concern; with the manufacturers eager to recover the alleged isses of the past several years, there J practically no limit to which the rice of news print may go. The new onibine proposes to control not only lie paper mills, but the pulp mills and lie pulp wood lands as well, thus proentlng growth of competltlufc.
