Good Conduct In Journalism.
The rules that govern good conduct in
an individual are those that shonld pre
vail in the offices of newspapers. There is
news enough in the world in which the
public is rightly interested to fill the col
umns of our newspapers every day in the
year, but toe trouble is that gossip and
scandal are often more interesting than
matters of real moment. The rule of gen
tlemanly conduct ought to be the rule of
the editor and publisher as happily it
very often is and, as J uuge allace wise
ly pointed out, mere posrn'p and scandal
niODgering are not excused by the answer
that the patrons of a newspaper want
what they ought not to have. Harper's
