oi tho KoshvlUe Valon aad Ameri
can, The publication of a newspaper is a busi
'Uess enterpriser-just-as any other commer'
dal or industrial pursuit. It is something
more. It is an enterprise in which not
only business capacity andskilled labor are
employed; but an accumulation of general
information, coupled with quick, active,
constant brain-work, with a basis of settled
attachment to truth and to principle, speak
ing fervently, but properly, on every 6ub
ject which concerns the peopled It is even
more than this. It is largely responsible to
tb3 public and to tha age for tho standard
of tha social, ethical and political status
and movement by which the age will be
judged by posterity. Sumetimo past it was
held in other countries as the "Foujth
Estate." In this Republic it-is now held as
the first In those tho King, tho Clergy and
tbe Bar preceded in this tha Press pre
cedes. Whether l ightfuiiy or wrongfully, it
does rank firet. -In so being it rests at, and
as the foundation of:most huiau vocation
because it i3 tho vehicle f all in-
and is the cxtrrau't mc-
that knowledge upon

nas driven luo scnoinst as a

to make priutcd "b6Tks. 'The progress of
seb nee, of mecbaal m, of art aud of dis
cuvery now reach tho "world through the
sme channel as t'ie curn?nt news of tbe

throughout tbe world as the accredited ve
hicle of new tlnuht, new enterprise, aud
I make this estimate ofthaPrfs, Gen
tlemen, to convey to you my conception of
its d.-gniiy, aud ;ts responsibility. Upon
these who have the choico of its matter, its
manner, its tone aud its temper, is imposed
th:s responsibility and tho duty to sustain
its dignity. This i3 part of its business,
aud a very important part of it, since its
pecuniary resources will generally corres
pond with popular favor. To the pecun
iary branch of tho business;' however, I
wish more particularly to caif your alien-
tlon, aud to submit a few suggestions.
It has been stated on whit I suppose
good authority, that a thousand newspa
pers died in 1871 I take it i.oi, unroasor;-.
able that an equal mortality will bo sum
med np at the end of 1872. I shall not un
dertake at presens to explain why some
newspapers, launched by men of high en
dowments aud culture, nave only a brief i
and brilliant existence "how others seem j
to be crushed by tbe ve ry weight of intel
lect imposed upaii them; or bow it i3, as for i
that matter, that still some fburlsh w4tbont
an atom of philosophic, merit, or. a single
particle of attachment to principle-, or per-
cjptible real devotion t o the pubKc good.
The picture before us for coniempkiien is
kbat mammoth catafalq ue of dead newspa-
I beu'eve I may say th it these s t'ioinand
or two thousand nevrsp. ipais, representing
a wasted capital of from four to"five mil
lions of dollars, each and. all died" of tfce
sarxe disease. It was :onsumpUpni tliat
peculiar form of the di3e?.-3e that no .pbysi

and f-rtuue. Bat thero should be
sjme spprectablo reason why a news
psper with mora capital, mora Intel
lectual effort, more self-saerWeo and
less self-comfort than nnny other vocatians,
falls when the others succeed. I mean, of
course, the average press for I frankly con
fess, in & career of fifteen years, I havoseen
some that wero not worthy an infioiltesimal
success part from absolute want of brain
and apart from absolute want of energy.
I have observed, also, that It sometimes oc
curs that those who have tho least brain
have the most energy, and sice versa. The
conundrum is how to unite the two. Brain
is plenty enough in somi casos wo find
it lying around loo.-a"' banking upon it
seli alono for a night's lodging aud morning
hash. There i3 also a superabundance of
energy which can make a iiowspaper go,
oven if it goes for nothing. This soe-saw-ing'of
business and editing kills tha paper.
If you could stuff a subject of this sort, af
ter death, and exhibit it at a remunerative
admission say $5.00, the price we charge
out selves for coming into this Association
and locking attach other there migt be
something substantial in a newspaper fune
ral after all! But it does not turn out that
way. Tha newspaper doath dries up a foun
tain; and it i3 never sainted.
Now; gentlemen, after these general ob
servational will endeavor to answer biiefly,
. it- ....nil frtow-fi,! nT4eUtT7 nmnnrr
aewsKipersy as compared with other enter
prises. Saving no patent on thi3 answer,
I charge nothing for it, and contribute it as
well for the ooulf ; cf tho dead as for an ad
monition to tha living newspapers. We do
too much work without compausation. We
pay too much money without any return
whatever. We establish a' eleemosynary
institution at onr own expense. We ke.ep
a charity school on our own hook. Ws
conduct business as if we owo everything
to thepublic, and the public are not inch jbt-
ed to U3 a farthing. Wo ara preyed opon
by the 6barpers and the innocents allse. We
adcerefse gratuitously every week, when we
should havo the money for it. The general
public ,tra entirely ignorant probably wo
ourselves are not fully aware of the extent
to which newspapers aro burdened by this
insidious drain upon their resources. It
insinuates itself in every conceivable form.
It does it through reporters, through
agents, through correspondents, through
editors,through business managers, through
proprietors and generally too with as
much dIsidvantag-3 to the public as
to the Press. There is not a busi
ness, from tha dispenser of ginger
cakes and cider to the largest manufactory,
which will not advertise with you gratis
which will, if you listen to it, endeavor to
convince you that it Is your duty to tho
public to do so. Thera is not an aspirant
for public fctatlon and when I contemplate
ti, a numbers of these, I experience an over
wheiVmiig seuaa of comminl .d amazement
and distil fivjtn Constable to the Senate
of the Union, who does not conscientiously
balieve it to b fch imperastve duty of the
press, daily and -.weekly, to epeak, with a
pen of telescopic power, of his microscopic
deservipgs. Even t.hat army of strollers,
which infest Mm conixJ-ry aud poople as a
sort of visitation cf Providence for our ini
quities from the stte-H corner seller of
p;izs candy or magic oil to the operatic em
pressario, will expect you to write an iudeli
ui.e number of editmials on a three square
advertisement insetted for five ds.ys, change
able daily, without chargd Wd are re
quired to write up, urge up.and put through
-very entarptisp, great or small, that seems
to have a possible connection with tbe
pubbc But wo never hear of a share of
stock, or of a dividend. The Chur h, the
S.ate, Commerce, Industry, Art, Invention
and Humbug alike seem to regard the press
as tbeir servitors, aud to bo run and sus
tained fjr tbeir advantage.
ibero is a line of demirkatlon i.n all
these things between public demand, public
utility, newspaper duty and individual
gain. That Hue should be defined, and
held, as it in reality is, the Dead line.
Not a letter nor a space nor a figure, not a
comma nor a period, nothing of ail the in
numerable particles that enter into the form
and structure of a daily or weekly news
paper, is there that its picking up aud put
ting down does nut cost cash money. Not
a revolution cf the press, not a squsru inch
of paper tha doss ot cost something in
cash. This should 1)3 -understood by the
public If it is not, its correlative should bo
practiced by tbe press. I do not mean that
the pres3 should absudosi its position of be
ing the foremost char. table institution in
the world. Ii should hold to that, for its
munificent lib:rality, af :sr purging itself of
nine-tenths of th2 dady swindles practiced
upon it, will exceed that, of any other bus
iness. To tpet rid of thi3 !utndou3 fraud of
gratuitous advertising, Ih is cancer, canker
call it anything, provided you select an
epithet that will characterize it strongly
enough I can prescribo nt other rule than
this" Put voluntarily and without charge
any and everything into you r paper which
you deem advantageous to it in being beu
oficiai to the public. All clsa , exclude, be
ing of advantage to those who wish to make
money upon your capital ami enterprise.
Hold your space at itsvalue. Fix your
rales at a fair price for your circoiation,and
adhere to them. Fair dealing will accom
plish more than fou, at all times aud eve
rywhere. For be it known that tbe Amer
icau press is not a vampy.", to be constant
ly sticking the iifo blood of the people. It
has a vas-ly higher mission but it should
alio be known that it will not lon-er be
macie the victim of the thousands of vam
uyres t2?at come daily to tlie counters, iu
verv conceivable garb, to have its life blood
hicontinsntly suckjd away.
Take a skeleton illustration: A gentle
man with a smbll capital starts out to ea
tablish a newspaper business; it may be a
large capital, for tint matter, Jt Ls his in
vestment, much or little. H buys rr rents
hh house he buys his typas, pressed iuk,
pjppr, ia short his euthv outfit. It naT te
considered a trifh singular, but, I belie. v,,
un'versally true, that no moulder of typs -
no maker of presses, no maifufac uter n
papr or tns, up n a nint tnat t e is aiouub
to start his ouvjpiise, step3 forward a.id
presiUs him with these essei.tUls to hif
businofs. He pays full cash value for all
hti material. Hi pays also full, or more
than average reu's for his tenements, or
the b -st market value iu case of purchsse.
If he insures, his risks are chsssd as extra
hzir'lou3, a'tl Ins ii curjed from double
to treblo the rates imposed upon his neigh
borj in mj experience a tnird more than
adiugstoro iu ttie sitne premises, with
oils aud other iuflimmable articles ia fomt
of mo and above me, aud ptckages valued
a from ten caats to fifty dollars, not oae
of wbiih, iu casaof fi.-j aid los3, would bi
worth a9 much as a nonpareil comma in
the same cate in a printiug office. At this
rate of expense h-3 gets ready for bajitH33.
Perhapi a more proper expression wouli
bo that alter spending tbi3 amount of money,
he has only begun his expenditures. For,
from the day ha commences, his troubles be
gin. He Bad j no printers who wilt set his
types lor amusement oa tho contrary ho
will find that he will hava to pay for every
type that Is Uken up and put down, a spe
cific cash price. He will Had that his pile
of paper is decreased with every impres
sion; that his ink is exhausted as with a
pump; and, iu tho course cf time, long or
short, t,ccorJing to the wastefulness of his
employees, or his own neglect, however
philosophic and equable ho may be, he will
find himself "out of t-orts." If his "till"
or his bank account is iu the same condi
tion, ho has reached a crisis, and the chan
ces are lhat he is broko with an establish
ment on his nanus that he will havo to cheat
somebody to got rid of, unless h9 peddles
It out type by type, or in effect gives it
away, to save himself from further wop.
It is not so in other enterprises. You can
not point to any other branch of business
that bears any comparison to this in num
b3r of failures and ia amounts.
I might continue, gentlemen, to rais3
questions and clto illustrations in relation
to the subjact before nsj but feel that I am
a trespasser upon tho timo and patience of
the audience, .who aro dot itless, as I am
myself, Impatient to hear t ia poem, which
has been prepared for this t ccision, by one
