THE PRESIDENT AND THE PAPRA.
A Criticism of Clevelacd's Criticism of
Certain Leading Newspapers.
(-rom ithe Charlotte Obcerrer.)
A few days ago the President wrote
a letter to Mr. Keppler, one of the
editors of the New York Puck, in
which he took occasion to say that the
newspaper of the present day was
The denial of the assertion is being
hurled back into Mr. Cleveland's teeth
from a thousand presses, from Maine
It was an unfortunate exprecsion for
the President to use if he really meant
Wayland, in his Moral Philosophy,
asserts that there is much more truth
in the world than falsehood.
In the everyday newspaper there are
a thousand truths, where there is one
Indeed, as a rule, editors, correspon
dents and reporters endeavor to get
facts and publish truths.
A newspaper writer who would do
anything else ought to be, and would
be, kicked out of the editorial room of
any respectable newspaper.
We do not know what Mr. Keppler
did, nor do we care, that called forth
the caustic letter from Mr. Cleveland,
We only know that Mr. Cleveland
ha. gone out of his way to assail the
whole press of the United States.
He is the last man in the country
who ought to do anything of the kind.
The newspapers made iim Governor
of New York, aud
The newspapers made him President
of the United States.
The cartoons, of even Puck, were
largely instrumental in determining
the final result which placed Mr.
Cleveland in the White Hou-e.
An election always is, or ought to
be, an expression of popular sov
ereignty, and popular sovereignty in
America is but an expression of pop
A political election in this conntry is
therefore, when successful, a regis
tered maiority of the voters who have
deliberately come to conclusions as to
men and principles, as they are pre
sented by the press.
We well remember when nearly two
years aso-the managing editor of the
Obserrcr wrote down the names of
about fifteen gentlemen who were at
that time regarded as probable candi
dates of the Democratic party for the
The merits and demerits of each
name was discussed and name after
namine was scratched from the list.
The name of Grover Cleveland re
Ile was unknown to the public.
He had been sheriff of Erie county,
lie had been mayor of Buffalo, and
He was the Governor of New York.
There are three thousand sheriffs in
the United States.
There are several thousand moie
There are thirty-eight Governors of
States in this country, and there was
little better reason for nominatina
Grover Cleveland. because he had
been sheriff, and mayor and was then
sitting Governor, per se, than any of
the six thousandl other officials to
which we have referred.
But the Democratic newspapers
thoutght we could win with Cleveland
at tie -head of the ticket, and they
went to work and put him there.
The politicians fought and kicked;
but the press won, as it always does.
Mr. Cleveland was nominated, and

When \Mr. Cleveland goes to sling
ing his caustic irony around he ought
to remetmber that "whom the gods
would de->troy they would first make
made," and that uinder the new dis
pensation wvhile the old Roman myth
ology has been relegated to the shapes
of the past, the newspapers ot the
United States are even more powerful
than the "destroying" gods two thou
sand years ago.

The reviewer of Mt. NleMasterssec
ond volume, in the last Dial noticed
his error in attributing to Judge Mar
shall, instead of Col. Henry Lee, the
authorship of the well-known sentence
concerning Washington: "Frst in
war, first in peace, and first in the
hearts of his countrymen." The cor
rect reading of this famiiiar quotation
is in doubt. Marshall, in his --Life of
Washington" (vol. V., p. 767). prints
the proceedings of the house of repre
sentatives and the resolutions read on
the death of Washington, in which the
sentence first appeared. Tihe last
clause there reads-"and first in the
hearts of his fellow citizens." Col.
Lee, a week later, used the sentence in
his oration before congress, and makes
it end with "countrymen".instead of
"fellow citizens." The "Annals- of
Congress" (1799-1801, page 204) re
ports the resolutions read in the house,
and ends the sentence with "country
men." The "Annals," however, was
not a contemporaneous pubiication.
having been made up more than twen
tv years later, by Gales and Seaton,
fiom such materials as they could find.
its wording of the resolutions is so un
like that given by Marshall and other
contemporaries that they must have
been reported from memory. "-Wash
ingtonisna," published at Baltimore in
1800, is a compilation. made up soon af
ter the death of Washington, of puilic
resolutions, testimonials of respect,
and orations. The resolutions read in
the house there appear in precisely the
words quoted by Marshall, except that
the sentence under consideration ends
neither with "fellow-citizens" nor
"countrymen," but with "country"
(page 110). Two pages later, the
same resolutions are given as adopted
in the senate, and the sentence again
ends with "country." Gen. Robert
E. Lee, of the confederate army, was
the son of Col. Henry Lee; and in the
life of his father, 1868 (prefixed to the
reprint of Col. Lee's "Memoirs of the
(Revolutionary] War in the Southern
Department") quotes, on page 51, the
sentence, and ends it as Marshall gave
it, with "fellow-citizens." This state
ment might be regarded as authori
tative as to the reading, if Gen. Lee on
the next page had not spoiled the in
ference by saying: "Bt there is a
line-a single line-in the works of
Lee which would hand him over to im
mortality, thou-th he had never writ
ten another: 'First in war, first in
peace, and first in the hearts of his
countrymen' will last while languago
lasts." The question is unanswered
"In what form will it last?" We ven
ture to express the opinion that Col.
Lee used, on different occasions, both
forms; and hence either form is cor
rect. He was an ardent federalist and
devoted military and personal friend
of Washington during and subsequent
to the war. His grief at the death of
this dearest friend first 'took form in
his own personal loss; and then, as a
Virginian, in the loss his state had sus
tained. While in this frame of mind
he wrote the resolution read in con
gress, ending with "his fellow-citi
zens"--which to him meant -Virgin
ians." Having later been appointed
by congress to deliver an oration on
Washington, as an expression of the
grief of the nation, be again used the
sentence, and gave it a broader mean
ing by changing "his fellow-citizens"
to "his countrymen."- 'he Dial.
The Donkey Wouldn't Bray.
Once upon a time a donkey fell into
a deep hole, and after nearly starving,
caught sight of a passing fox and im
plored the stranger to help him out.
"I am too small to aid you," said the
fox. "but I will give you some good
advce. Only a few rods away is a
big, strong elephant. Call to. him and
he will got you out in a jiffy."
After the fox had gone the donkey
thus reasoned: "I am very weak for
want of nourishment. Every move I
make is juast so rnuch additional loss
of strength. if I raise my voice to
call the elephant I shall be weaker yet.
No, I shall not waste my substance
that war It is. the duty of the ele
phant to come without caliing."
So the donkey settled himself hack
and eventually starved to death.
Long afterward the fox on passing
the hole saw within it a whitened
skeleton, and remarked: "IfWbe the
souls of animals are transwigrated into
men, that donkey will become one of
those merchants who can never afford
The Vulgarity of Fine Writing.
There is a sad tale of a leading-arti
c-writer whose editor had views of
style. The views were that the same
word must never be repeated in an
article. Now, the word "grouse" oc
curred twice in the same paragraph.
"What do you mean by this?" cried
the angry censor as he scanned the
proof-sheet: "grouse twice, and in one
paragraph, too?" "Well, they are
grouse,' said the impenitent scribbler:
"What else can I call them?" "Call
them! Why call them the feathered
denizens of the moors," yelled the edi
tor with a feeling for style, and proba
bly that article on the Twelfth must
have been one of the most curious, by
dint of periphrases, that ever charmed
the leisure of the top of the omnibus.
