Honolulu Press iMorals. '
I am thankful that there In here n
press which avoids the description of
Indeconcles and scandals and descrip
tions or vice In words of supposed
humor. Hut from tho columns of some
papers the youth must get the Idea
that society is made up ot men and
women wholly given to materialism,
frivolity. nnd scandalous deeds. We
who arc experienced know how many
noble men and women with lofty pur
poses are In society. We know, also,
that, despite the fact that the jouth
from his reading might think that
there was not nn honest or hotioruul"
man In publlo life, we know differ
I am nware that newspaper men say
that vice and crime must be shown up.
I know how much the ordinary ed
itor bides out or consideration of, the
feelings of families. 1 know how much
might be printed that is not but the
responsibility ot the preis ns the great
teacher should lead newspapers to have
In mind not the mere vending or news,
but the good of society and the crea
tion of a right view or life.
Just a word about the Sunday news
paper. How much Is there lu the or
dinary Sunday paper whlcl ikes (or
the moral uplift of the peoplo? And or
or the sheets Rtipposed to he tunny,
lu them are coarse nnd wretched pic
lures with stories of boys who are
Impertinent 'o their mother or who
decclvo her, und or bojs who uttempt
to deceive u sly old grandfather who
gets the better or them. All that I can
lee lu them Is the teaching of dlsio
fpect to authority and age and the
tmnrtness or cunning nnd lying.

Crest Public Taste.
Hut one tact Is forgotten and that
Is that newspapers largely creato the
public taste. It Is like a manur.ictuier
who.creatcs a demand for his goods by
giving samples. A paper might lose
In some directions and for n time. Hut
the truth lies lu tho fact that new mm
per men are not In the business for the
purpose or being teachers or righteous
liess, they nrti In the business to make
money. They must make the paper
pay. That la ull true: but Is there with
all this power or the press to be no

lar American papers which hao
been really great have bet nine gnat

lug tho ndMKiite ot some great cause
lu the struggle of human udtnmcmtiit.
Preaa Not Free,
Tho most serious matter to me lu
this day Is that the press Is too often
not free. Jefferson said: "A free press
Is essential to liberty." It seems us It
more and more that newspapers ure
owned by men who run them on behalf
or certain interests, lu a ilty where
mncii money is iiiu-sted In pulillc III II
ItleH various InlerestM own tho papers.
Or the paper Is the organ or tt ixdltlcu!
machine and supports the machine.
right or wrong, for Its patronage.
Such u paper Is not free. It Is a .cog
In the machine. It goes on supporting
the running or the machine whether
the omcerx are Inellli lent or rorrupt or
not, whether lce and gambling ure
protected by the machine. It matters
not, the paper grinds on In its betrnynl
or the public good It Is true that men
know when the press Is not free, hut
that doc not take away the danger,
nor the evil.
Up To Subscribers.
Hut the responsibility for theco
things cuu not lie placed wholly on the
proprietors und editors. It rests a
strongly with thorn fwho patronize
the papers. It an paper should of
fend honest and self-iespectlng men
niiel ir a mew hundred or them were
to order tho pniier stopped the pro
prietors nnd editors would look care
fully Into the matter. I am aware that
subscriptions do not pay the expenses
or a paper but advertisers soon know
when u paper has a decreasing list ol
subscribers. There Is also lu the same
way n responsibility with those who
advertise. If n dozen or the largo
merchants ceased to do biiblness with
a piper which they knew to be advo
cating measures or men which wer
against public Interest and good gov
ernment, It would have a powerful er
'I lie truth is the responsibility for
the, best use or the newspaper for lib
erty, fairness, deteney nnd rlghttous
liess rests with the people, with the
class or people too who dpilro the h-u
and who elilelly support the papois.
The fault Is u gem nil one nnd wo tun
not put It upon newspaper men wholly.
My friends, the press with Its stu
pendous power ceilululy does pot rlo
ubom Interests und personnl spite to
the sense of the great letponsllilllty
(or the uio of Its power ns it should (lu
and as It might do. When It la the or

"luttiests" ugaliist pulillc rights, when
fur gain It will do its licit to perpetu

details of vhe and crime In order to
pander to vulgar taste, then It Is pros
tituting its tremendous posslbilltlrs
for good lu the picttctlnu or human
