Although we did an immense volume of business during the first
week of this sale, we feel safe in predicting that this week will
break all records. Men who have never before patronized cloth
ing sales and were always skeptical about buying a "bargain" have
waked up to the fact that this sale is out of the ordinary.

"A great many of our newspapers
have been identified or allied "with the
liquor traffic. They advertise for the
sake of money that which they know to
be ruinous to public health and public
morals and. which is responsible for most
of our crimes. They place the most at
tractive and delusive temptations before
millions of our people. They send these
advertisements into tens of thousands of
our homes, where parents long for their
children to be temperate and iaw-abid-ang

judgment nothing can be made more de
moralizing than the constant and per
sistent advertisement of Sundy bull

have no justifiable place in a decent
newspaper. And the public ought to en
ter a most vigorous protest. They can
not justify their claim fcr the highest
respect "of the moral citizenship of the
community so long as they give pub:
licity to these things.
"In this same category may be placed
those papers which seek to fasten upon
the public any other form of evil such as
the horse race gambling institution, or
anv other form of gambling or graft, and
thereby seek to deceive the people to
their o"wn utter undoing. There are rea

newspaper to make public sentiment
right and honorable rather than to seek
to prostitute everything to the lowe t
possible level; to lift up rather than to
degracV, and to debase, to inculcate the
higher ideals of morality and of rinu
living, rather than to surrender as the
slave of all that is 'ow and vicious.
Tribute to The Herald.
"We have a splendid illustration in our
own city of the most excellent servh-e
which a newspaper may render in tiie
cause of righteousness." Some of the
editorials against gambling and other
sins common to a frontier town stood
out as great classics for honesty and
purity in public and private life. The
value of this service cannot be over
estimated. "In the earlier years which mark the
transition period of El Paso from a wild
frontier town to a modern, law-abidin"-city,
due credit should be given to the
splendid service of the daily press. With
out this service it is fair to assume that
the good days for our city would have
been greatly de3a3red. And besides this,
the columns of theN press were filled
every week with the messages from the
various pulpits of the city, and carried
into the homes of our people. The press
was helping to educate the people in
righteousness. .If the people did not
receive the right kind of instruction, the
responsibility rested with the preachers.
These weekly sermonettes were read by
thousands of people, as I have reason to
know. Whatever else may be said for
or against anv of our city newspapers,
this valuable service must in all justice
(be admitted. Credit should be given to
whomsoever it may be due.
Not The Herald.
"On the other hand our city press
'has in a number of instances stood
squarely against public morals and the
higher ideals which make -for righteous
ness. Columns after columns have been
issued by some of our daily press advo
cating the cause of he lawbreaker. It
has championed the cause of the gambler
and of the saloonkeeper against right
eousness. Time and again articles have
been published in this city, and some of
them written by women too, which were
so vile, and so suggestive of indecency
j and uncleanliness as not to be fit to be ,
i read by our boys and girls. (
"We have had a hard fought battle
in El Paso between the good and the
evil for supremacy. The lines have
been sharply drawn, and the press has j
piayea an important pxrt. oometimes
the temptation has been strong lor the
press to take the side of its wrong when
' that seemed to predominate, or to be
! weak in the advocacy of the right when
that was weak. It is the common ten
dency of many newspapers to stoop with
public sentiment, however deep in the j
wrong it may be. But we have a num- i
ber of newspaper men who take the posi
tion that it is their business to educate
public sentiment and. make it what it
ought to be.
"In mv judgment there is an invalu
able service which every lover of right
eousness should Tender the newspapers.
Let us seek to purify and xo educate
public sentiment so that it will read the
io-oTif'TiPw?mTipr and that no other will
be permitted to- enter the home. Par
ents ought to scrutinize the daily papers
and guard against the vicious paper as
against a loathsome disease or a dan
gerous pest or blood-thirsty beast. And
business men ought to advertise 5ply
with decent newspapers."
