MAKING A NEWSPAPER.
The following sketch from a late London
paper is so Tull of truth, that its fidelity to the
forlorn su^ect will icarcely be appreciated by
anybody outside thc lewspaper profession:
?Who ls he that, like thc sergeant-major of a re?
giment, must be Orst lu the newspaper omce, and
tue last out of it ? Who ls he that ls troubled with
Ideas as to what the newspaper must contain, and
at the same time has ever present before bim the
exact numb jr or colu mns "open ?" The publish?
er and the advertising clerk announce that the
"ads." are coming lu fast. Tnc editor tells the
"sub" that there is some very important corres?
pondence, and that he expects a most important
debate in the "House" that night, which win ne?
cessitate an additional leader, foreign, news
comes pouring In. Every porter ?d-fwJW
messenger brings piles or greasy and halMHegi
b'c flimsy The reporters announce a arc or
mo and more tuan ?ne interesting meeting. The
Brinier talks exultingly or so much standing mat
t er ??t?l the poor dazed "sub" is at his wits' end.
Newspaper columns are not elastic; proprietors,
except in rare instances, do not look with favor
upon supplements. So the poor hard-worked
"sub" has to pare down the redundant expr?s?
elo is of the valued contributor, beg the editor to
omit the extra leader, snub the "liners," or. what
is to them worse, cut down the ten sides of spe?
cious "flimsy" to as many Unes. He quietly tells
the reporters to keep down the Influential meet
togs, and in short '-?'oil down," condense, pare
and omit the overwhelming uews of the day into
a readable and compact form. Nor is this all.
When his work ls finished anu bis coadjutors have
departed-the leader writers have long since dis?
appeared-the editor is having, at some late res?
taurant, or may bc at his club, that delicately
grilled chop and kidney prior to leaving for home
-a strav reporter is perhaps only visible, and lie
is in a very unpleasant humor at having the last
take, and that unusually long, when flown comes
7Ir. Printer with a lace as long as his own col
omn, announcing that there are two columns
"overset." Ab ...
Thoa tho prm I.rain-tired "sub ' has to wrine
through yards or proors. and decide what shall be
omitted and what cut down, uutil he has made
the columns and the "matter" to till them equal.
Then he may light his cigar as the ramble or the
"holst" tells of thc forms going down to ma?
chine, and go home to dream or something ex?
traordinary being omitted rrom the paper alto?
Yet the sub editor docs all this and gets no
credit from anybody. Ht* silent supervision is
not recognized by the general public The edi?
tors and leader-writers arc uuderstooil. The
mnslcal and dramatic critics are known by name.
Thc reporters are seen; but thc poor "sub" ls un?
known. Yet he is the builder of the newspaper,
the consulting clerk of the works, upon whom
the appearance of the paper mainly depends. He
lt is wno receives the crude ideas or Robinson
with respect to that excellent institution ror the
reception or Incurable Dyspepsia. He places
those ideas before the public in an attractive and
in an Intelligible form. The editor and thc public
congratulate Robinson, they overlook Mr. Peys
ton Caje?is, as Shirley Drooka has happily
named the sub-editor, who h-is brought rare skill
anda keen discernment to thc assistance ortho
unknown Robinson, whose ideas under other
management would have been killed in thc bud.
Ur. Robinson accepts thc compliment, and walks
away under the Impression that he is u clever fel?
low after all.
Up to a very recent period, thc newspaper sub
editor was only found iu thc metropolis. Even
in the largest country towus his ofllec was com?
bined with that of thc chief reporter, or, as ls
now frequently thc case on papers or some stand?
ing, the editor also acts as "sub," and takes the
entire management or the contents or the paper.
Thc latter plan has but few advantages to recom?
mend it. The man who has to search into prece?
dents, to dive into matters or currency or inter?
national Uw, to study thc laws ol population, to
regulate the local governors and set a few M. P.'s
right In their facts and figures, loses all zest for
pasting little paragraphs on slips of copy paper,
and placing attractive and neat little side-heads
to every "par." so as to give an 3ppea.*ance of
freshness to thc clippings. * * *
Thc country sub-editor must know every one,
and thc peculiar and ludlvldual relations of every
one within thc county. Thc Inevitable Smith or
Jones, who gets Into a squabble and figures lu a
Loudon police court, he must recognize, and
point him out to his fellow-townsmen. The bril?
liant essayist wl,o ls startling thc word, the rising
musician, or the new judge, must bc pointed o*ui
as oue "who was honorably connected with our
towu or county." lflie only went to school within
either. Tncir domestic connections must also bc
known, and all ami everything relating to the
locality kept at the fluger?' ends, literally aud
Tile duli, smoky room In which thc Bub editor
usually works, ls bair Ailed with partly cat news?
papers, discarded contributions, a lew spare bim;
books, aud a well-thumbed dictionary. There
von will assuredly And a gazetteer, Lemprlere, thc
.'Men ol tue Time." and sometimes Hanauer'*
well known Treasuries of Knowledge. The desk
ls an Ink-stained, gum-bespattered, paste-daubed
piece of rurntture. The proverbial scissors are
discarded for a sharp penknife, and gum has
usurped the place or paste.. The waste-pai>er lias-*
ket gapes with a wide mouth, and there ls a gen?
eral toue or ordered slovenliness about the sub?
editor's room whli'h marks RB Individuall y.
Look at that pigeon-hole, crammed lull of pa?
pers, "reserved for consideration," or for the
editor's ?reference. There is also not a few
good letters walting their turn, and yon will
Bee them when ihero ts a tull lu the nev?
market, which ebbs and Sows like thc tide or ure
itself. The traine?! "sab" seems to know ntnl
Uvely. as lt were, the very place to look for suita?
ble "copy" in every paper. He passes by with a
glance the "padding" or other "subs." He seizes
triumphantly every tlt-blt, and as be slaughters
the papers, wonders If everybody reads all thc
papers anil wades through the miles of columns
which he so carefully prepares. Ile ls disturbed
from his reverie to argue thc point with some
irate contributor, whose manuscript has been
"cut down" or rejected, or to explain the mean?
ing of some "par" which a subscriber per?
sists in being meant for bim. The printer
wants copy and must be kept employed. Nothing
mist beleitout. The reporters are away, and their
parcels have missed, nnd when they come they
request i he "dear sob" as a favor to look up some
qa-aa; lon or spell some scientific name rig lit.
wnich they have Imperfectly caught or remem?
bered, for he Ls supposed to have all the knowl?
edge of ihe world, to know thc "ologles" and Hie
"isms." and to bc equally nt home in the myste?
ries of the speculum analysis or Die linc arts. Ile
can onli aspire to perfection. His highest aim ls
to omit nothing, ami his greatest disgr?ce ix to
proclaim to the wort ! that a very important arti?
cle or report has been omitted for want of space.
L'serul and unknown, thc fub-editor deserves well
or newspaper men and newspaper readers, yet
how rarely he meets with ins deserts.
