THE ETHICS OF JOURNALISM
We are advised in print lo follow an
ohsolete and an unsatisfactory rule of
journalism. Thai is to sty, this ptpei
has been told, when it obtains a dttir
able and interesting piece of news.
"submit" it to those whose names it.
mentioned or whose interests are con
cerned, leaving, them to decide by
their private preference what shall set
print and what shall be marked out. A
faithful observance of this tenet would,
wc do not doubt, make a daily news
paper about as instructive to the publu
as a passing suintnei ( loud. Such n
"journal" would have little new s of any
virile sort, and Would publish, in most
cases, not what had happened, but
what certain people would like to haw
others think had taken place . or would
fail to public those significant things
which news makers always wish to con
ceal, but are the points in Which
the people are interested There was
very much of this soit of journalism in
Honolulu before the Star stilted
things up and there is much less now
a fact which accounts tor the im
proved reputation of the whole press
as a news-gathering agency In time
to come, when annexation shall do it
perfect work in making Honolulu ;
modern city, we shall expect the Ha
waiian papers to tell what is going on
with the intent ol absolute fidelity, sup
pressing nothing valuable, "submitting'
the news to no revisOT but their own
professional instinct, and taking can
that the history of the times shall be
written with as much accuracy as may
be permitted by the usual conflict ii
in the minds ol witnesses and the ever
lasting desire ul some part ol tin
public to suppress or make over llie re
ports which personally concern itself.
Fur those who wish the press 10 say
nothing of their affairs, when such
affaits are of public moment, there is
but one safe rule. It is 10 keep still
about them, and then the papers may
hear and see nothing. The moment,
however, that such things get out into
the gossip of the street they become
the fair prey of the reporter, whose
journal is under an implied contract lo
tell its readers all that is going on in
the legitimate fields of business, society,
politics, daily life and even of diplo
macy. By obeying this rule of enterprise
and accuracy, according to its oppor
tunities and lights, a newspaper In
comes worth reading. On the other
hand, by "submitting" public news to
private suppression, it shows itself to
be incompetent and untrustworthy, and
deserves the fate that always nimts
Thk days and weeks go by and not
one of the New York Herald's Ha
waiian prophecies have been verified.
In fact, the men who inspired them
here and induced a senile and depraved
commentator to put them into print
no longer believe they will come to
pass and possibly never did. Far
from being in a state of financial and
political collapse, we possess a growing
credit and a stronger Government
Instead of taxes having been refused,
they are being paid by Royalist! and
Annexationists alike. Conspiracies ate
wholly out of fashion and nobody is
anxious lo wager on the restoration ol
the throne. On all the islands of the
group, upon which the Herald assured
its readers would be civil war ire this.
is profound peace anil a common
obedience to law. The gorgoni and
chimeras dire that Mr. Bennett was
about to see loosed upon us appear l
be like the animals he set free in Cen
tral Park the creatures of his own
delirious sensationalism, as little real
as the blue toads and green monkeys
of a methyl spree.

Mr. Jones printed a card in which he
