Mri Bonaparte's Views Upon News
Attorney-General Bonaparte made
ac' ecmirable address before the Po
litical Economy Club recently
on ''"'Government by Public Opin
ion," in the course of which he dis
cussed the functions and influence
of newspapers, and laid down what he
regards, and -what all intelligent per
sons must regard, as the fundamen
tal and sound principles of honest
and'.sucoessfu! journalism- Th? right
of. petition is a constitutional right
of, the people of the United States,
_ and; this right, Mr. Bornaparte de
clared, is always an object for attack
and repression by unpopular govern
ments. A free press, however, he
continued, : is a perpetual petition,
"always, telling the Government what
the people ;wish and hope for and
think right, and no government in
any ..country^ out of sympathy with
fcbe people it ruled, has ever per
manently tolerated _a free press. "
We may add that it is a fortunate
lireum?tance for popular liberty and
good government that a newspaper
Heyer can exert any powerful influ
once for any length of time unless it
.-.vsU^worthy^ unless it speakes the truth
; . -, and is honest and patriotic.
The newspaper is like the watch
man, upon the wall of his country who
.ceases-not, day or night, warning peo
ple of present or approaching danger.
.. .... Ag. long as men have confidence in
" the honesty and patriotism of the
newspaper, as long as it voices or ex
presses thc just aspirations of the
. - people, just so long will the people
..V .-trust-it and follow it and be guided
^?^??ry irs disinterested advice. But, as
? M*. Bornaparte truly says, "as soon
ac a paper is. recognized as some
l'. body's 'organ,' as : expressing the
views and wishes and opinions of any
particular man or set of men, its
healthful influence as a newspaper is
:*? . gone ; it ?nay, indeed, have another
kind of influence, for those who con
trol or conduct it may be powerful
men, but "its editorial utterances are
their 'open letters.' "
And .it is just as fatal to the stand
ing and influence of a newspaper for
s lt* to become the -organ of, or to be
owend or controlled, as Mr. Bona
parte Expresses it, by "well known
interns"-in other words, "by
wealthy- men in far-reaching enter
prise?..;" The editor must be a poli
tician in the best and highest sense
of that "ward. He must have an un
derstanding of political affairs and
feel np "interest in them. Otherwise
he is out of plaee -in the editor's
eiair.^ He should, have definite
opinions " upon public and political
subjects, and should express those
opinions honestly " when occasion of
the public welfare demands it. He
may, si Mr. Bonaparte says, in effect
express his opinionby keeping silent.
That is, in effect, action, just, as it is
an act, of a court' to dismiss a suit
because the court is too indolent to
try it. ; Perhaps Mr. Bonaparte goes
too far when he says that a news
paper's "failure to act is usually
very discreditable action; to fail the
friends/ of good, government is to
serve its enemies." There is a time
for" every purpose under heaven; a
time to keep silence a time to speak ;
a time to act and a time to refrain
from action ; a time, for instance, to
enforce thceommodities clause of the
Bate law and a time to refrain from
enforcing it. There may be a time
when' a" newspaper can afford the
friends- of good government better
?id by silence than by denunciation
-Uponi the whole, Mr. Bonaparte's
views on this great subject are emin
ently Correct. The influence of an
Honest newspaper may be strong and
wide, but that influence can only be
maintained hy a' policy of patriot
ism, sincerity and honesty. And such
a policy can not be maintained unless
it is absolutely independent of per
sonal interests whether such interest
be of a political or business character.
The importance of such newspapers
cannot be exaggerated. Without them
popular government is next to im
possible. Evils that were once, before
the days, of the liberty of the press,
pressing ?nd real dangers can now be
disregarded. The evils which flourish
in the Attar chamber and in secret
places, shrivel and die under the blaz
ing light of publicity. People are de
manding publicity because it is the
greatest rof all guarantees of liberty
and of honest government.
There js no nobler or more useful
mission , than that of the independent
newspaper, which honestly and con
scientiously seeks to promote the pub
lie -welfare, and which knows no mas
/ ter or Controlling innuence but cn the
other hand, there is no agency which
is more ! dangerous and more justly
the object of public scorn than the
newspaper which, while professing to
represent the people, is really in the
service of proprietary antagonistic
interests and is betraying the princi
ples which it -pretends to advocate.

PARIS COTTON MEEI
World's Manufacturers Talk
Over Their Troubles
DESIRE CHEAPER RAW COTTON
Sentiment of Congress of Inteina
tional Cotton Spinners Is That
Americans Will Not Sell Their Cot
ton at Fair Prices.
Paris, By Cable.-The reports to
ind the debates before the fifth in
ternational congress of cotton spin
aers and manufacturers which open
?d in this city Monday, all indicate
;hat Europe stands in great fear of
American monopoly and feels the ur
gent necessity of freeing this im
menss foreign industry from Ameri
ian domination of the price of raw
material, especially "when?.cotton is
.he subject of speculative movements.
Tho otheiai French report insists
.hat foreign manufacturers have a
right to fair pri?es in order to avoid
i derangement of the industry
ibroad. Moritz Schany, a German
axpert, expressed the opinion that
while there is a possibility, of a
largely increased American produc
tion, labor difficulties beyond the,
Atlantic make an increase in the
mpply of American raw material
abroad unlikely, especially as the
United States undoubtedly "will great
ly increase the consumption of its
own cotton. Herr Schany joins with
his colleagues in the cry against the
Americans on the ground that they
are not disposed to deliver their cot
ton at fair prices. To remedy this
.condition thc European delegates ad
vocate, first, some method to put a
stop to improper speculation, and
second, tbs fostering and the ?ten
sion of the production of cotton in
the colonies of Europe, especially in
Africa and Egypt. It is claimed thai
in ten years' time these countries
will be able to produce 10,000,000
bales of cotton a year.
The American delegation, on the
contrary, contend that the So itheru
States are the natural field for cotton
production, and say they will be ca
pable ultimately of an output amount
ing to a hundred million bales a year.
D. A. Tompkins, of Charlotte, N. C.,
submitted a report in which he urged
that the existence of a large new cot
ton area was problematical and it
was therefore the duty of the Euro
peon manufacturers, instead of pur
suing illusory dreams, to turn their
attention to aiding emmigration to thc
Souhern States, where, with adequate
labor, sufficient cotton can be growp
to supply the entire world.
A. S. Perrill, of Chicago, insistted
that the only way to reduce the price
of cotton was to increase its produc
tion. The European manufacturers
who had so greatly lessened the cost
of manufacture, he said, could best
contribute to this end by co-operating
with the- Ameriean planters in find
ing methods to lessen he cost of pro-"
At a secret session held Monday af
ternoon there came up for discussion
j a resolution in favor of organizing
a systematic compaign of agitation
to induce the governments of Europa
to co-operate in tbe exploitation of.
colonial cotton production by fur
nishig seed and teaching r colonists
how to plant and cultivate. The
American delegates, realizing that
the practical results of such action
are vague and distant, assumed a
passive attitude. Mr. Perrill, how
ever, argued that some of the Euro
pean oppoaition would be disarmed
if greater care was exercised in thc
South in the picking and preparing
The committee of the congress fin
ally proposed a compromise resolu
tion to the effect that the best means
of evading disaster in the trade
whether in the direction of lack o?
raw material or overproduction in
mills, were to be found in the estab

ment to the restriction of production.

be voted, invites all confederated or

The association has completed an

THE DUCK HOUSE.
At a considerable distance from the
chicken **wo^ers is a duck house,
wK-?*. -ne nttle ducklings are shei
"-red and cared for from the time
they are hatched to the time when
they are dressed and sent to market.
The house is 500 feet long and 4G
feet wide. There are partitions every
100 feet to prevent drafts cf air. The
ducks are graded according *o age,
the little fellows getting what is call
ed "baby food," a little lau-* No.
2 feed, and as they get considerable
size and strength, No. 3 feed. There
is an alley running through length
wise of the house. Through this al
ley a car, on which there is a box
twelve feet long containing feed, is
pushed along, and the ducks in pens
on either side are-fed as systematical
ly as the large dairymen feed their
herds of cows.
It requires a thorough knowledge
of the habits of the duck to handle
them successfully. Although a water
fowl, they must be kept comfortable
and dry while young. Water is fur
nished running along in a trough
where they can reach their bills In
and drink, but they cannot get into
it. A strange characteristic is a love
for light, and lanterns are kept burn
ing to light their pens all night, ot
they would injure themselves by run
ning against the partitions.-Tribune
