END OF ONE OF BIGGEST CASES EVER FOUGHT ncreascd Costs Are Almost Prohibitive, Says Southern Publisher at the mill tor white paper. During the greater part ot 1917 tho avprago I)rlon was around 2 1-2 cfiiits. l-'or tho first six months of this year tho federal government fixed tlio price at 3 10-lOOths cents, but tins nuinufac-turorp ot paper have appiMlcd from this decision, and liavH also been granted a rehearing before tho federal trade commission. Paper Men Insitt on Increase "The manufacturers are practically a unit in declaring that I cents or I more will bo the price for the last halt -of this year. "Now, the figures 1 have quoted have met with tho government's conservation of paper orders, and I am going to do everything in my power to maintain the quality nt the News, and if tho price has to bo Increased it will be only under the stress of necessity." Birmingham, Ala.-"The nowspa , , , pers ot this country are facing the; above as to the operating expenses of most serious crisis ot their existence." 1 tho News tor May and .luno were said Victor H. Hanson, publisher ot \ made under advantageouK paper con ? claimed the country was never an nexed by Great Britain, whilo tho leg Islatlvo council claimed the land on behalf ot the inhabitants of southern Rhodesia. The latter claim brought the case Into tho courts, the company disputing tho contention ot the council. Arguments before the privy council lasted upward of a fortnight. State fuel administrators were advised by tho United States fuel ad-mlnistry that they have authority to prohibit, except under special order, tho sale of coal to domestic consumers In localities where a plentiful supply ot wood is available. Th^y were advised that it wood dealer^' advance prices because of fho iiiuruabOu ue-mand they may be dealt with under the -Lever act. Privy Council Ettabllches British Crown's Long Disputed Jurli-diction Over IMatabeleland. With the Fingers! Says Corns Lift Out Withbut Any Pain the Birmingham News and chairman of the executive committee ot the Southern Newspaper Publishers' association recently. I have just come .hack from,Ashe-vllle, N. C., where the Southern Newspaper Puhlisliors' association held its annual meeting. Everything Is Much Higher "For three solid days nearly a hundred newspaper men-it was the most largely attended meeting in the history ot tho association-debated and discussed and resolved, trying to find the solution for the problem. Tho newspapers are up against the proposition ot vastly Increased expenses along every line, a price for white paper-which Is the greatest skigla expense in Issuing a newspaper- nearly double what It was two years ago; increased labor cost, higher prices fbr metal and machinery, for Ink, oil, and everything else that goes into the making of a nov,-spaper. Postal Law Adds to Burden "On July 1 the new postal law. which places a frightful tax on newspapers, went Into effect; freight rates have just been advanced 25 per cent and so on through the list. "What to do about it all was the burden of the Ashevlile meeting. It was recognized that newspapers that have been showing a handsome profit arc going to show a deficit, while those that have been Just a little bet ter than making expenses will have hard sledding to get through at all. "The wisest publishers In the land are racking their brains about how to maintain the quality ot their papers and still manage to show a fair margin of profit without raising the price beyond the reach of the average citizen. Expense 40 Per Cent More, "You take our own case with tho News. The operating expenses ot th? News tor May, 1917, were $36,740.81. while for May, 1918, they were $47;-825.42. For June, 1917, the total wna $35,247.42, while for June 1918, Mt passed tho $50,000 mark. There Is;an Increase of nearly 33 1-3 per cent for May this year over May last year, and more than 40 per cent Increase for June.  ' "In the meantime a 10 per cent advance In advertising rates had gpne Into effect May 1, 1918, but 10 per cent 'acks a lot of making up for an increase'd cost of more than 401 per cent. "In 1916 the newspapers of the country were paying under 2 cents tracts. With the probability of paper costing us 4 cents or moro wo must look about us. "The Now's white paper bill, buying, paper aroimd 3 cents, has been averaging about $20,000 >per month. Increase the price ,to 4 oontB. a.s seems very likely, and there is :i:ldpd about $7000 per month for paper alone, without allowing for ,tho 23 per cent advance In freight rates.
