Bids for bonds, for road construction, for wood and other matters from the county court, job printing from the several county ofiices, and other work which should be divided among the various printers in each county, or awarded to the lowest responsible bidder, is all turned over to the paper with the alleged largest circulation. To exist the small town publisher must have business, and there is no valid reason why he should not receive his proportionate share of the county printing. But no relief from present conditions would follow the organization of county units. The publishers who now have the lion's share would expect to retain it, and as soon as the small town publishers suggested changes in the state law that would give them a county "take" occasionally, trouble would follow. The writer is a member of the Oregon State Editorial association and while he believes it has some good features, he does think that those at the head of its affairs have not shown that interest in the welfare of the small town publisher to which he is entitled. Not until the publishers of the small town weeklies get together and form an organization from which the "biggest list" publishers are excluded, can they hope to "come into their own." Such an organization must strive for laws which would give them a "look in" on county patronage, and thus enable them to attain a higher standard of value in the communities where they are published.
