J. MIL, SALEM SUN
OWNER, CHARACTER
Editor, a liepublican, Practices Seven
Trades When Newspaper Busi
ness Is Dull.
Mountain Home, Dec. 30.—rlhe
greatest extremes in the country
newspaper business in Arkansas meet
in Jonathan Hall and his Salem Sun,
in Fulton county. John is the leader
of the minority party in his section,
the bigest man in the country news
paper business in the state and the
biggest man in Salem. He weighs 225
pounds and falls shortly only an inch
or two of six feet six. In actual
equipment his plant is probably the
smallest in the state. If he ever has
to move he will not have to call in
the assistance of a drayman; he can
distribute the plant around in the
capacious pockets of his breeches and
walk off with it.
In significance, however, the Sun
is larger than that which produces it
mechanically, for it is the mouthpiece
of John, who is the sarcastic political
editorial humorist of the Arkansas
press. Besides being the editor of
the Sun, he is also his own composi
tor, pressman and devil, and besides
his ability as a humorist and editor
and a general mehacnical genius
around his own office, he has more
diverse occupations to fall back on in
times of adversity than any other
country newspaper man in the state.
It matters not to John if the pump
kin crop is short, for he is a chim
ney builder, decorator, paperhanger,
sign writer, mechanic, farmer, phil
osopher and politician. He can make
any one of the eight return a finan
cial revenue but politics. He is a
standpat republican, and under the
present administration practices his
profession solely for glory.
In his Salem Sun, a five-column,
four page patent inside, he has a re
publican weekly with strong spas
modic tendencies. It runs when busi
ness is good and suspends when it is
i
! bad, but never fails to resume. Dur
ing the times of suspension, John is
! at work picking simoleons at seven
I of his other trades.
He is also the perpetual republican
' candidate for Fulton comity and his
: congressional district, and has sac
i rificed himself on the party altar
1 more times than most of the other
! official goats for republicanism in
j Arkansas, and with tlie usual result.
Fulton county democrats say his po
J litiacl gall is as large as an Arkansas
j cantaloupe and contains 26 five-car
at, clear-water stones, and that some
day if he ever breaks away from the
confines of the Ozark mountains and
gets into a national republican con
vention he will be a candidate for the
nomination for the presidency.
Besides being the proprietor, edi
tor and mechanical genius of the
Sun—and eight other trades—he also
has glories in the ownership of the
deserted postoffice of Salem. For 16
years he was postmaster there, and
lie tenaciously holds on to the past.
John is a standpatter. A standpat
ter from environment and from who
(laid the chunk.
j He wears number 12 shoes stud
ded on the soles witli Hungarian
nails and once he puts his feet down,
they are there to stay. When Roose
velt raised the little birchbark caller,
and bellowed forth the moose call, at
the last national convention, and
stampeded the herd, John never mov
ed a peg. He took an extra hitch in
his galluses, pulled his shoe strings
a bit tighter, chained his postoffice
fixtures to the stone wall of his build
ing, locked his commission up in the
safe, took his stub pencil in hand,
and dehorned those who had started
to sprout antlers in Fulton county.
He saved the country from an igno
minious political disgrace, from his
point of view.
Every newspaper man in tlie state
| knows John Hall from a professional
I viewpoint. His humor has floated in
i to every editorial office in the state,
from that of the Ozark Clarion,which
j is published 15 miles north of this
I place, in Emerson’s cabin on his
| homestead in the shadow of the
(Three Brother mountains, to the city
j papers, that sport three, four and
j five deck presses,, batteries of lino
type machines and editors who do
not set type, do job work and other
sundry jobs that rightfully belong to
the compositors and the devil. John’s
humor is confined to very short ex
pressions. Yet one cannot judge his
physique from the length of his lines.
He is built like the laughs his humor
produces. When subscription collec
tions are good and he is on full feed
he tips the scales around 225. He
is not fat, but big.
Jonathan Hall has been in the
newspaper business in Salem for 12
years. The most wonderful thing
about him is that with his diverse oc
cupations and his journalistic en
deavors he has grown rich. Rich in
love, for he is 50 odd years of age,
and lias accumulated a family. Rich
in satisfaction, for he has a vehicle
through which to express his opin
ions. Rich in pleasure, for he has a '
farm to ride as a hobby.
