Hovt It (ilws Hist to Interesting
Press censorship in the Phillip
pines and in Shouth Africa did not
deserve the criticism which the peo
ple so violently expressed from time
to time," says Mr. Ham Young,
the veteran manager of the Western
Union news wires in the National
Capital. "We had censors here
during the entire civil war, and all
matter filed for telegraph from this
city to the newspapers of the country
was critically scrutinized by careful
censors who eliminated everything
that could be considered objection
able by the administration. The
correspondents in those days were
enterprising fellows, and they were
inclined to send all sorts onnterest
ing rumors, regardless of 'what ef
fect they might have upon the war
department aud the movements of
our military forces. The censor
ship was so rigid that entire tele
grams were frequently destroyed,
and newspapers would hear nothing
at all from their representatives.
The most successful, if not the
ablest correspondent of the civil
war period, was U. H. Painter, of
the Philadelphia Inquirer. He used
the mails so successfully that he
was often able to publish news
which the telegraph press censors
would never have permitted to
The remarks of the veteran oper
ator, censor and manager were
made during the excitement about
press censorship, aud the narrator
sought Mr. Painter who was then
living, and obtained a narrative of
more than ordinary interest which
has never been published, but is
particularly pertinent as we come
to the anniversary of Antietam's
bloody battle, September 17-18,
i8f2. Mr. Painter said:
I was placed under arrest in the
spring of 1862, by Gen. Sanborn,
who ordered me to report to the
secretary of war. I did so, and was
ushered into the presence of Secre
tary Stanton, who motioned me to
a seat, looking me over very criti
cally and blurted out:
"I never saw you before."
"I never talked with you."
"I never gave you an interview."
"Then why did you publish an
interview with me?"
"I never published an interview
with you, sir."
'Then what does this mean?"
"Taking from his desk a copy of
the Inquirer, Secretary Stanton ran
his finger over a five column article
under the caption: 'An hour with
the Secretary of War,' in which he
was quoted as saying a great many
interesting things to prominent peo
ple. Holding that paper before me
"Did you write that?"
"I dictated that."
"How did you obtain your infor
mation?" "As a private American citizen,
Mr. Secretary, that is my business,
aud I do not think that it is any of
ycur business how I obtained my
The big secretary was astounded;
being accustomed to having people
cringe before him. However, he
changed his entire demeanor and
said in an exceedingly confidential
and pleasant manner:
"That is all right, Painter; you
may suppress the name of your
friend for the time being, until I
tell you why I want to know the
name of your informant. This is
an important office; a great civil
war is going on, and it is excessive
ly important that I should have
only loyal helpers about me. The
interviews which you have printed
are almost verbatim, and if you
will tell me which one of my clerks
Rave you the information, l"wTl
promise you confidentially not to
punish him, but will have him
transferred to another department."
"Well, Mr. Secretary," I res
ponded, "not one of your clerks
have been disloyal to you. This
room is full of pedple for two hours
every day. I was here in the
throng every day for one week. I
crowded as near to yourself as pos
sible, and took notes of conversa
tions which I overheard, and pre
pared my article from data conveyed
to my mind through my own ears.
That 'Hour with the Secretary of
War' was really about twelve
The Secretary was so releived ot
anxiety and so pleased with my
story of how the article was gleaned, j
that I then and there made and
secured the friendship and privileges
which enabled me to secure accurate
war news for transmission to my '
paper in advance of busy compet
itors." Newspaperdom. '
A Forgotten l'oet.
Thomas Lovell Beddoes, who was
born July 20, 1803, was a poet to
whom, probably for the most part
unconsciously, this generation owes
a considerable literary debt. lie
was among the first men of letters
of the time to recognize the genius
of Robert Browning, and it was in
to Browning's hands that the Bed
does manuscripts came in 1872. "I
am sure we shall come upon some
dreadful secret," said Browning to
Edmund Gosse, whom he permitted
to be the first to examine the box;
"I cannot dare to open it." Oddly
enough, the very earliest papers to
come out of the box proved the
ghastly fact that Beddoes committed
suicide a fact hitherto unknown,
at least to the world at large. Bed
does' s works were subsequently
published under Browning's direc
tions, aud under Mr. Gosse's editor
ship. His chief productions were
"Death's Test Book," which occu
pied him twenty years in the writ
ing, and "The Bride's Tragedy."
Both were fairly popular when
originally produced, the former in
1 85 1, the latter in 1822, but they
are now caviare to the general.
