Continued advances in the cost
of raw material have impelled thj
mannfacturers of paper to further
elevate their prices, while all quo-
tations are expressly stated as ap-
plying only for the moment. The
lines in which there have been ad-
vances are those of print papers,
book papers, poster papers, Mani
la papers, flat papers, card boards,
tag boards aud envelopes. We
have been compelled in conse-
quence to raise our prices on most
of these products, and our present
billing cannot be taken as indicat-
ing our ability to refill orders at
the same figures. We wish to as-
sure our customers, hbwever, that
we shall protect their interests as
far as possible, and will in all
cases make our charges as low as
the market conditions permit.
Chicago Newspaper Union,
Tbe rise as above indicated
ranges from 10 to 40 per cent. So
you see there is but one of two
things for the newspaper man to
do if he does a legitimate business,
l. e. to advance the price of mer-
chandise sold or quit business.
As for the News, it will not quit
business, so you can look out for
a rise in all lines, advertising, sub-
scription and job work.
