THE BELDING BANNER
C. K. COWDIN. Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1901 i:itiii:ic pi ion 1:. Vol. XIII, No. 1. The Banner has turned another milestone in its history and with tins issue enters upon its thirteenth year, and it celebrates the event ly don ning a complete new dress of type. During all the years that have pised the writer has been continuously con nected with its management, and has aimed to publish a clean, bright and newsy family paper, thoroughly covering the local field, and faithful ly reporting the legitimate news. The years that have gone have wrought great changes in llelding and the Bannek has had its part in assisting to bring about and in record ing many of the changes. It an nounced its motto in the initial issue as llelding first and the world after ward. It has stuck to its text in sea son and out of season, and has endeav ored at all times to advocate and up hold that which was for the best in terests of our city and calculated to j advance the prosperity of its people, according to the light given us. The paper has been accorded a fair share of the general prosperity during this time and has no complaints or apolo gies to make. New machinery, type, and other material in abundant quan tities has been added as fast as the increasing business or improved methods demanded. We can say truly and without fear of contradic tion that few country offices in this btate or any other are as well equip ped as ours. The Banner has many staunch friends; we are grateful to them. There are those who honestly did'er with us; we admire and respect them for their honest'. We have some enemies who hate us because they cannot use us; we despise them and fear them not. The Banner's edit orial opinions are not on the market to be bought by the highest bidder. It lights for the right as we see it and never deserts a friend. There are certain duties that devolve upon a local newspaper and these duties we aim to fulfill. The best .newspapers deserve as much credit for what they don't pul lish as for what they do. There are, of course, sensational happenings in every community, which, might la written up in a way to make racy reading, and which would, no doubt, delight a certain class of readers. But the Banner has always made it a point to keep its columns free from scandal and all that which will tend to lower its standard as a clean home paper. This policy has been rigidly adhered to in the past and will be continued as long as the paper re mains under the present manage ment. Newspaper offices cannot be run as they were twenty years ago. Boys do not work a year or two for their board as they once did, and wages in the city are such the country pul lisher must also pay good wages to keep competent help. Advertiser and business men will not accept work performed with the facilities- that were deemed adequate even ten years ago. The hand press, which used to be good enough is now a back number and the modern country news paper must be printed on a power press costing from $000 tol,'.on. The oflice must keep up with the times and buy several hundred dollars' worth of type and other material every year to do acceptable printing, And while the expenses thus increase the competition becomes stronger and keener, cutting off a few dollars worth of work here and there or com pelling the country printer to accept lower prices than before. How to al so reduce the price of his paper to meet this demand and yet make the business pay a fair rate of interest on his investment ana a proper re turn for the labor of brain or brawn which the business entails, is the problem which continually confronts him. His rent gets no lower: his in surance, taxes, help, paper, type, ink and the other hundred and one ex penses are no less. We thank our patrons and friends for their very liberal support in the past and shall endeavor to continue to receive it by meritorious service. Hereafter Ionia county will have only one representative in the state legislature, a bill having been passed which re-arranges the representa tive districts of the state, and ml us of that much representation. Ac cording to the constitution, the state cannot have more than one hundred representatives in the lower house of legislature. Some sections of the state, notably Detroit, has increased very rapidly in population hi nee the state was last redistricted, and this re-apportlonment is necessary. The population to each district is fixed at twenty-five thousand, and those sec tions which have that much and a half more get two representatives but Ionia county being just ludow the limit is robbed of one. The United States supreme court has decided that the constitution does follow the Hag. It is said the Kvening Journal and the Free Press, Detroit newspapers, have been purchased by a stock com pany and that they will be run under the same liiauagvment, doubtless meaning that the Tree Press will come out as a Republican morning paper. At the American congress on tuber culosis held recently it was declared that the disease is not hereditary and that most of those who have suffered from It could have avoided it by tak ing proper care of themselves. I f so, we ought whim to see a vast decrease in the disea-e. In less than - years Kngland has fallen from first place in the produc tion of iron and steel to third, Amer ica and (a-rtnany now leading in the order named. America's increase in production from 1K'. to was six times greater than that of England's, while Cermany's was four times greater. The Low er-Ward mortgage tax bill passed both House and Senate by big majorities and has received more attention throughout the state than any other bill that, was introduced in the legislature this session. F.xperi ence has show n that it is difficult to get an equitable, just law that will work nractLaUv and can be honestly enforced in regard to mortgages. This bill it i- believed will come a lit tle nearer to it than any heretofore enacted. "If a deceased wife is happy in heaven with the angels, would she not. as a matter of course, desire to ee her former husband happy here on earth?" This is the question put bv I lev. 1.
