Burtlette, bavins relate 1 bis ex perience with a young and stru-glin- dailv, I move that other brethren present relate their own little history. I think it is some times a relief to unburden the soul by a con : f ession. I toyed with a daily once which was incor porated to fill a long felt want. I did not know it was loaded. There was a rival daily that had been running two years, and we en tered the arena, hoping to win an easy vio tory over this paper and become a groat power in the west. We made it our business to boom every thing that was boomablo and to sneer at the lack of enterprise of our adversary. Wo got specials by mail, press reports by slow freight, and showed a style of fearless enter prise that wa3 the envy and the admiration of many large metropolitan journals. We thought that our adversary wouldn't last more than a month after election, but Thanksgiving came and found The Evening - Squawker still on deck. The editor would come and borrow print paper cf us and then use it to call us the slime bedecked and putrid exponent of a still more baneful political faction. Wo would borrow a font of brevier of him and characterize bis' paper as rho wailing foundling, dying in the poisonous vapors of the deadly swamp of political filth, wherelti it a 1 cho&eii its bed, edited Ly the bitter foo of the laundress and Lindley Murray, a man who had evaded justice for forty years, and, not content with the out rage of all moral sense, had declared war on the spelling book. Thus we kept up a spirited contest for a long time. Sometimes we couldn't get our paper out cf the freight office, and sometimes lie couldn't, but wo would loan each other "the last quire wo had and keep friandly, while through the columns of our rospectivo papers wo spoko of each other in language which might have been constructed as re- , prcachf ul to some people. It was an ' exciting time. One day The 1 Squawker would offend a subscriber, and bo would come over to us, and the next day we would unwittingly tread on the toes of one - of our great army of subscribers, and he would go over to the enemy. The editor of the other paper and myself ; saw that it v. as going! to bo a war of exterm-. fnation. Wo ground' our teeth and our .shears and sailed in. At';tho end of the first year he bad discharged' bis servant girl and my paper owed me S00 salary. At the end of the second year ho bad blown in his fin brick residence and I had taken my salary as police justice and thrown it into the ra pacious maw of my little hungry long felt want. One day the little, muddy, measly, long suffering features of The Evening Squawker failed to appear. Wo kept asking tne oflice boy why The Squawker didn't come. Ho didn't know. Finally ho went to the publica tion office. The door was .locked. A map of Dakota was bung over one window and a printer's towel over the other. The oflice boy raised the map and stole in. Th o uncer tain light here and there broke in straggling rays through the threadbare- places in the towel. On the desk lay a letter from the ad vertiser of a Colic Eraser in which ho offered to take a column in The Squawker a year, following pure reading matter ami with 2,CCKJ lines of reading notices to bo strung along through editorials from day to day, in bold-faced type, and in consideration there for to furnish for two years to the editor, or hi3 order, fifty bottles of the Colic Eraser at publisher's price, delivered on board the cars. Everything about the office showed that the work had been going bravely on when the summons came. In fact the summons lay there on the desk among other papers, along with a writ of attachment for $25oS5. This shows what a hold a paper gets on its subscribers and also what a hold the sub- . scriber gets on the paper. The sheriff had bfcen a subscriber to the Squawker ever since it started, but wo didn't know bis attach ment for the paper was so great. Wo won the 'day, but at what a sacrifice. The smoke of conflict cleared away and showed that the victory was not worthy of the carnage. We had survived, but wo were not proud. The Squakwer had fought us bravely, and now its still, cold form lay in the basement of the chief creditor, and the usual notice of attachment was tacked on the door. The editor and myself met on the following - day, and be was the more cheorf ul of the two. He said bo felt sorry for me. "I c n use what I get hereafter on my family," s.ud ho; "but you can't. You will feel guilty if you buy a barrel of flour for your own use, knowing that it may imperil the next issue of the paper. I have passed all that." And be was right. The quicker a man decides to cease publishing a daily paper where it is not needed, just simply through a high moral .sense of duty, the sooner he will become light-hearted and joyous. I paid $2,000 for the privilege of knowing this, and I present it to every paid-up subscriber of The Free Press without mouey and without price. I don't know very much, but if there's any thing I do know, and know it hard, and ' know it with ono hand tied behind me, it is that.
