An exchange advises editors to go
into politics on their own account. It
states that they have been muking po
litical bosses all these years and now
they should go in and become bosses
themselves. We doubt the propriety
of editors doing th'ts. To lie sure,
they have often helped to elevate oth
ers less worthy ''-.an themselves to
eminence in polities, but the closer
attention the editor pays to the run
ning of his paper tile lietUf. He cm
support his party and assist in poli
tics, bat when he attempts to run"
thing? he 1 ses much of the influence
bis paper raignl otherwise have. The
politician should be made to under
stand that r.ewpaper space is mei
chandise just the same as the dry
goods and groceries be buys, and
when ne understands that, lie will al
ways be willing to give value received
for what the editor does for him. We
do not mean by this that a paper
should be governed in its principles,
or advocacy of principles, by money
considerations, but that in assistiD?
those viho believe in its principles, he
is rendering a service that is worth
something to the man thus aided, and
should be paid for. Such a course
would not come under the head of
boodling it is business.
