charge of murdering Richard Smith,
was concluded today. Arguments
in the case began at noon.
Don't pay your good money for the circu
lation claim* of any newspaper, unlets those
same claims can be "metered" into proven
facts. Every automobile salesman claims his
car is the best, but watch them climb the hills.
Every newspaper salesman claims his circula
tion is the largest, but ask him to prove it.
The burden of proof in such a case should be
on the newspaper making, or allowing its
representative to make, such a claim. The
Star's Circulation is accurately "metered."
The Star welcomes the opportunity to prove
to any merchant or reputable committee in
Seattle that its actual paid circulation is
In Excess of 40,000 Daily -
And The Star welcomes the opportunity
to tell you just where this circulation goes—
how much in the city and how much in the
surrounding towns.
