One of (ho most interesting features
tit the Chautauqun assembly nt Crete,
which closed yesterday, was the school
for practical newspaper work. For some
reason or other the ideas of young Amer
ica very largely turn to journalism.
There is a wide-spread desire among the
youth of both sexes to enter the news
jmper business; henco it was not sur
prising that when Will Owen Jones, of
the State Journal, and W. E. Hurdy,
state secretary of the Chautauqua lit
erary and scientific circle, decided to
utilize this youthful inclination toward
newspaper work for tho establishment
of a miniature newspaper office on tho
grounds of the. assembly, nnd tho issu
ance of a daily paper covering tho events
of tho Chautauqua assembly, their plan
met with instantaneous success. Tho
attendance at the assembly was not
largo this year; but it was a very easy
natter to secure an attendance of twenty
er thirty at tho newspaper school, and
pupils were never more eager to learn or
more willing to work. Every morning
at 8 o'clock the school met in the press
building, where informal talks were
given by Mx. Jones and Miss Rachel
Manley of this city, who has lately made
her home in New York, whore alio is en
gaged in newspaper and literary work,
and others. Then the program for tho
day would be taken up, and nearly every
pupil present would bo assigned to re
port some part of tho proceedings.
"Copy" was handed in to Miss Manley
for revision, and by the time the class
met again in the morning the result of
the day4 work was in evidence In the
form of tiny newspaper, tho Crate
Chautauqua, and it was an interesting
and clever pablicatioa. The class was
originally intended for the youth of both
sexes, but before it was many days old
the "age Hmlt wall materially raised.

heads were bald, but they were quite.as
enthusiastic as the younger pupils.
' Nearly half of those in attendance were
ladies. Next year it -is proposed to
amplify tho school, and it will bo made a
distinctive feature of the Crete Chau
tauqua assembly. And while there has
been and will bo no attempt to make
journalists out of tho pupils in a ten
day's course, some common sense, prac
tical instruction in the uctuul prepara
tion of a newspaper will bo given, and
there is no reason why it should not bo
come a useful us well as an interesting
At one of tho morning sessions of the
newspaper class this week thero was an
interesting discussion as to tho com
pensation of newspaper workers. Those
who have the cluss in charge sought to
present some of the disagrceablo phases
' of tho newspaper business, and the
statement was made that considering
the amount of training and actuul hard
' work required, newspapers men and
women are poorly paid, receiving on an
average smaller compensation than the
1 same talent and application will secure
in the other professions.
This statement is pretty near the
truth; but the pupils, many of whom
gave evidence of that peculiar fascina
tion what the newspaper business has
for certain persons, were not disposed
to accept it as such. They didn't want
to believe that "journalists" are not
well paid, and they didn't. One mem
ber of the class insisted that teachers
are not neurly so well paid as newspaper
workers, and sho continued that the
ability of the average teacher will com
pare very favorably with tho ability of
tho average editor or reporter. This
was met by a reference to the two pro
fessions us exemplified in Lincoln.
It was pointed out that Professor
Strong, tho superintendent of schools,
receives an annual salary of $.1,000; that
W' the principals receivo 1100 per month
s and the teachers from 145 to 180 per
month. Then it was said, and very
t truthfully that no newspaper mun in
'Lincoln receives a salary of 13,000. In
one or two instances newspaper men
have an incomous large as tho salary re
cehed by Professor Strong; but u largo
portion of it is in the form of interest on
"But is there any newspaper man in
Lincoln who could do Professor Strong's
work?," was asked. Thero uro eoverul,
it was said, who could do Professor
Strong's work just us readily as Professor
Strong, for instance, could do the work
of tho editor of tho State, Journal.
Special preparation is needed in each
case, Then it was added that very few
newspaper mon in Lincoln receive as
much as the principals of schools, f 100
n month. As a matter of fact thero are
not more than three men nt present en
gaged in daily newspaMsr work in this
city, writers, that is, who receive
925 per week. The salaries re
ceived by tho teachers will stand pretty
close comparison with that received by
tho rcjmrtcrs. And tho editors who re
ceived 125.00 and tho reMrters who re
ceivo much less' work in tunny instances,
day and night, fifty-two weeks each year,
nnd some of them work .105 days to tho
year. Twelve hours isin't u very big
day's work for a newspaper rustler.
Moreover it wus argued that n very
largo percentage of teachers uro women
who enn afford to work for less than the
men engaged in ncwspuier business.
Mr. W. E. Hardy was this week elected
president of the Crete Chautauqua as
sembly, 'vlco Rev. Wlllurd Scott. Mr.
Scott will retain his interest in the as
sembly, and will continue to conduct tho
exercises. Lincoln jieoplo are thoroughly
familiar with the rare business qualities
of Mr. Hardy. He is just tho man for
the place, and it will bo strange if the
Crcto Chautnuquu assembly does not
become mora successful than over under
his able management.
Mr. Hayden realizes that Mosher does
not intend to render any assistance, and
he very wisely refuses to lend hisendorse
ment to District Attorney Dakor's
scheme to keep Mosher out of tho penl
tentary on indefinite length of time.
All of tho banks and nearly all of the
merchants report an improvement in
business within tho last weok.
Traveling men say business throughout
tho state is picking up rapidly.

banks this week, the third timqlnsix

C. W. Mosher has at last received his
sentence. Tho light punishment im
posedimprisonment for five yours
was not a surprise to nnjone; but was n
disappointment to many. It hus Leon
apparent all along that tho least hard
ship 1-obhUjIo would be imposed uion the
bank wrecker. Justice seems susceptible
to influences, nnd a few fi lends, for a
"slice of the pig," seem to have prevailed
uRn tho court to deal gently with a
wholesale thief nnd givo him the least
possible sentence under tho law, while
if he hud been poor und had stolen only
u few dollars, ho might have received
double the present sentence, und with
tho time spent in serving it, ut hard
Tho lux nnd disgruceful munncr in
which tho case of this embezzler, bank
wrecker nnd criminal, has been bundled,
has been a subject of no little comment.
When tho bank first closed its doors,
the sumo old story wus rung out to the
depositors thut is ulwuys printed on the
heels of such a disaster, thut the bank
would pay its depositors in full; and
many, willing to givo tho devil his dues,
believed Mr. Mosher would, In common1
humanity, do all in hi b power to help
out of tho hole tho helpless, poor und
Blck ones who had trusted to his keeping
their hard earned suvings. But us usual
in such cases, excitement is in a meas
ure dying down, and with it tho assure
ance that "depositors will receive
every cent of their money,' and it has
become the common remark in business
circles, that depositors will not receive'
25 cents on the dollar.
If a loop hole can be devised by a cor.',
rupt.luwyer, it will be countenanced by

allowed to crawl throush. and after a
Itrlinf sentanae, spend hla III gotten galBs

Occurrences of this kind certainly do
not tend to lessen crime, but on the con
trary, to encourage it. Others in posi
tions of trust, seeing how easy it 1b to
cscupo tho full penalty for crime, will no
doubt take suggestions from this case,
und uftcr enriching themselves ut the
sacrifice of others, spend a farcical sen
fence and be free to spend their ill
gotten gains as they choose.
It wub urged by Mr. Mosher's friends
who were paid to so urge, tbut to tine
him un insignificant sum, upon tho con
dition thut his friends pay for the benefit
of depositors something less thun two
hundred thousand dollurs, would do
good to many, while to sentence him to
the penitentiary would be to deprive
needy depositors ot whut they might in
this wuy huve.
There are several reasons why this
would not help the depositors materiully;
for it the extent of Masher's stealings
uro correctly estimated, 9100,000 would
go only a very little wuy towurds paying
tho claims uguinst the Cupitul Nutional
bunk, us ull uvuiluble assets in connec
tion with this amount would not pay u
lurge dividend. To huve agreed to u
settlement upon this basis, would have
been to free n self -confessed criminul
und give sanction to u crime, which
would not be right, een to ir.a'ite loeset
The learned judge who pronounced
the sentence gave Mr. Mosher permis
sion to come to Lincoln und help the
receiver in the settling up of tho bunk's
business. Inasmuch us the receiver has
no use for Mr. Mosher in the settling up
of the uifuirs of tho bunk, and the judge
well knowing this, how can hiB notion in
tho mutter be construed to mean un)
thing but u scheme to keep Mosher out
of the ionitentiury us long us oseilile
und to assist him in ovadlng the luw?
