New York, April 23. There was a
notable gathering of editors and pub
lishers at the Waldorf-Astoria last
night, the occasion being a joint ban
quet of the .Associated Press and the
American Newspaper Publishers' asso
ciation, both of Which are holding their
annual meetings in this city. Their
guests included William Jennings Bry

not a 1-cent paper in the country out

Mr. Bryan, in Ids adress, expressed
his appreciation of the treatment ac
corded him by the press aud said the
.increasing tendency to political inde
pendence was a favorable sign of the
"It is much easier for a paper to be
bipartisan than non-partisan," he j;aid;
that is, easier to represent both sides
than to discuss public questions with
out taking either side. If, for instance,
a metropolitan paper wants to become
really independent, why should it not
employ a representative of each of
the parties to furnish signed editorials
on political questions? Such a paper
would appeal to all parties, and es
pecially to those who are anxious to
know both sides of every public ques
tion, is it not an experiment wortu
Apt to Itrromr Partisan.
"The so-called independent paper is
apt to become partisan just before the
election. This may suit the proprie
tor if he is anxious o make his paper
a party organ, but it is sure to disap
point those who differ from him and
who have become subscribers because
of the claim of independence. If the
proprietor honestly desires to take his
paper out of politics and make it pure
ly a newspaper, the bipartisan plan
enables him to carry out his purpose.
No paper can be entirely neutral in a
campaign, and no editorial writer can
conceal his own bias when he writes
upon political subjects."
Knox I'olut Only of Vrrnn.
Senator Knox indnted out the power
of the press in calming popular pas
sion and promoting confidence. He re
iterated the sentiment that the news
papers of the country must be abso
lutely devoted to public interests and
stand for public enlightenment and

Washington, April 23. The employ
rs liability. bill, which the president
igned yesterday, makes railroads or
3ther common carriers, while engaged
in interstate commerce, liable for the
njury or death of an employe if the
injury or death occurs, in whole or in
part, from the negligence of any offi
cers, agents or employes of such car
riers, or by reason of any defect or
nsufliciency in equipment. This pro
vision is made applicable also to cat
tiers In the territories, the District of
Columbia, the ranama canal zone and
ther possessions of the United, States.
It. is provided that in any action
jrought under the provisions of the
bill an Injured employe shall not bt
icld to have assumed risk in his era
jloyment in any case where the viola
tion by a carrier of any statute, enact
ed for the safety of employes contrib
lted to the Injury or death of the em
iloye. Any contract, rule, regulation
it device to enable the carrier to ex
empt itself from liability under the
act is rendered void, by a special de
claration to that end. Provision is
made, however, that the carrier shall
receive credit for any contribution
made to the employe or his family in
he form of insurance, relief, benefit or
