For somo limti the stockholders of Tho Citizen have been debnt.
JtiR tho matter of adopting tho cash basis for subscriptions, nnd along
with it tho policy of stopping nil subscriptions 11 1 tho end of tho time
paid for whether notified by tho subscriber to do so or not. Ar in
timnled in nn editorinl, n few weeks ago, tho arguments on both
sides of tliis question wero being neighed, nnd tho result is that wo
aro authorized to nnnounce that 110 more credit subscriptions will bo
received, and Hint ns soon ns proper notification can bo made, or
about December 1st, wo shnll begin to stop subscriptions on expi
ration. Thore nre four good reasons for this change in policy:
1. It is much less trouble to handle n cash subscription nnd less
costly from tho standpoint of ollico or ngent's work.
2. Even if our subscription, list should bo somewhat smnller,
thn receipts will no doubt be larger owing to tho fact that soino few
people subscribe with 110 intention of paying, and others who aro at
the time well intetilioned nnd perfectly honest, do not pay, tho cost
to us, of tho endeavor to collect, iu many cases, being much more
than tho price of tho paper.
3. On the credit basis it is necessary not to discontinue so 1110
subscriptions after expirntion, nnd, if some, then nil. Consequently
the pnper often loses n year's subscription, tho subscriber failing to
realize that hu is both legally nnd in honor bound to pay if he does
not notify the ollico Mint ho wishes his subscription discontinued.
4. "I'ny oh you go" is the best policy in every line of business,
mid it works as well for tho buyer as tho seller. Aud there is tho
least reason of all why it should not apply to the newspaper business.
In letters to all of our subscribers who nre in arrears we have
recently urged that they get on the pnid up list, anticipntii)g.tho time
when wo should adopt this new basis, and the responso to this re
quest has been generous, so that the number of our cash subscribnrs
is constantly increasing, while the unpaill list is dwindling. We
hope by the end of, tho month to have nn altogether pnid up list.
Wo urge all subscribers, therefore, to look at the date on the ad
dress of their Citizen to see if they nre on the pnid up list, nnd if not,
to remit ns soon ns ponsihlo. The Citizen goes to press this week on
Thursday morning, November 14th. Any subscription, therefore,
with tho (Into previous to November lfJth, 11)12, is on the unpaid list,
nnd there is due us one of two things n notice to stop or remittance
for tho new year.
TAFT A VICTIM
History will deal much more Hjmpathetically with Mr. Taft than
did the popular majority at tho polls, and its verdict will not be long
delayed. Blameworthy as he has been in some respects, the fnte that
has overtaken him was not deserved. There will be n revision of the
popular judgment ns to him nnd it will be tempered by knowledge
and sympathy. Somo revenges that appear to bo successful are dear
ly pnid for in time.
As President, Mr. Taft will leave a record of many triumphs and
n single conspicuous nnd fntnl blunder. He has been a constitutional
mngistrnte, governing by law and not by caprice. He has given us
tho grentest Supreme Court since the days of Marshall and Story.
He was thn first President to enforce the criminal clauses of the
Sherman law. Ho has urged the reform or judicial procedure. He
has powerfully supported the cause of arbitration. He has worked
for reciprocity, lie has suppressed jingoism. He has promoted
civil-service reform. He brought about the corporation tax. He has
hnd regard for economy.
Mr. Taft'g stumbling block has been the tariff. He signed the
Pnyue-Aldrich bill which he should have vetoed, and he vetoed the
uou.partisau bills reducing tho cost of living which he should have
signed. No doubt ho deserved punishment for these errors, but not
at the hnnds of men calliug themselves high-tariff Republicans, not at
the hands of States liko Pennsylvania, not at the hands of industrial
oligarchies like Hhode Island.
Judged either by his virtues or his mistakes, here is a President
who has met unmerited humiliation. Defeat was necessary and inevi
table, but only by treachery and ingratitude could it be made so over
whelming as to amount to a stigma.
We believe that nn informed and charitable public opinion will
presently transfer this reproach from the man to the system. The man
will be remembered for the good that he has done. The system, of
which he has been the most notable victim, will be destroyed.
