Loudon, Jnnuary 2. Henry
Labouckero in Truth and Editor
Palmer of the Yorkshire Post, an
influential provincial journal, call
attention this week to tho subject
of bribing English uewspffpers by !
means ot advertisements inserted
ostensibly as nev s, and by pay
ment for tho insertion of pros
pectuses of new companies on
condition of their being puffed
more or less diroctly.
Neither critic is sufficiently
severe upon this stnte of things,
which is fast sapping tho ind
pondeuco of tho press of this
country. Both appear to think
that only second und third-rate
nowspapers aio bribed, which is
far from being tho case. News
papers with more than local icpu
tation, such as the London
Times, Morning Post and Daily
Telegiaph, habitually insert per
bonid notices for payment, which
aro advertisements pure and sim
pie, and not always inspired by
harmless vanity, and their exam
ple is boiug very widely followed.
But tho cjiicf ovil of the system is
tho pulling of swindling concerns
of company promoters and bucket
A glariug case in point was the
advertisement of a British motor
syndicate's impudeut schemo for
extracting 815,000,000 fiom tho
pockets of simple investors for
property that is practically
worthless. The newspapers from
tho Times down to tho smallest
ovcnin sheet in a third rate town
got tb.13 advertisement at their
own price and inserted it, two
columns long, with gratitude and
joy, although it bpre upon its
face- the full brand of dis
honesty and tho maik of
swindling promotors which
every business man could plainly
see and understand. Yet, with
three or four honorable exceptions,
no newspaper criticised tho lying
statements in the prospoetub, and
much loss warned simple investois
againbt its dangers.
Tho inherent rottonuess of tho
schorae is sufficiently proved by
tho fact that despite lavish adver
tising upou'n scale most unparal
leled, tho public subscribe not
millions, as it was asked to do,
but only a fow poor thousands,
which came entirely from country
people, unacquainted with tho wiles
ot Stock Exohango sharks. Even
theso few thousands are now be
ing returned to thoso who sent
them, in viow of threats of legal
Concurrently with this bribing
by advertisements, tho custom of
certain journals, woro particular
ly of tho London financial uows
papors, to charge for tho insertion
of reports of public meetings of
mining and industrial companies,
has spread largely, so that it is
now almost impossible even for
the Bouudest concorn to obtain
publicity for its proceedings with
out paying for it. Tho liuanciul
newspapers do not care a rap
whether tho company is honest or
n swindle, provided so many
pounds a column aro paid for tho
roport of meotings, which, ob often
os not, aro composed morely of
tho seven shareholders which tho
law euys must bo prosont to con
stitute a legal meeting, and these
sovon may bo the actual promotors
of tho concorn. Tho other day
ono of tho leading finaucial iiows
papors contained about fifty
columns of reports of company
meotings, and it may bo safely
stated that tho payment of thoso
reports aggregated 500.
