The Managers of Newspapers. N. Y. Cor. Lowell Critic. Whatever measure of success may bo at tained by a newspaper is generally credited by the public to tho able editor; if, on the con trary, the paper falls or drags out a miserable existence, the failure is ascribed to bad business manngoment. Between tho able editor and the humble publisher it has been for years a game of "heads I win, tails you lose," so far as reputation has been concerned. The man who Bits up stairs and thinks thoughts and scratches them down on a pad with a stub pencil takes all the credit, while tho publisher who sellb tho paper and hustles around to pay salaries is regarded as a mere sordid money grubber. Yet If tho publisher falls to sell tho papers printed, or neglects to secure sufficient adverttsins, or does not make satisfactory arrangements with tho printers, or slips up in any of his multifarious duties, the thinker of thoughts can cogitate until his gray matter becomes mushy. People aro beginning to realize that tho genius which evolves learned editorials on the McKInley bill and constructs pyramidal head lines over a news sensation must be supple mented by an equally pronounced genius in a different line, If tho public aro to bo induced to read tho editorials and tho headlines, and tho paper Is to be a success. Those who are raoro intimately connected with journalism have dis covered that while tho peculiar quality of brains which lino tho skull of a successful editor aro not too plentiful, tho combination which goes to make up the successful publisher is very rare indeed. In other words, tho business end of journalism Is coming to the front as a distinct profession, and its yalue is being appreciated. Tho pub lisher must bo something more than an ordinary business man; ho must be endowed with the journalistic instinct and know tho value of a dollar as well. He must keep a close watch upon the public fancy, and know how to sell tho paper which tho editor makes. If the compositors and pressmen strike at midnight it is tho publisher's business to seo that tho paper comes out on time. If the edi tor gets into a libel suit the publisher must pay the lawyers and possibly the damages, and In a good many cases tho publisher must hire tho editors. Ho must bo active In luring tho elu sive dollar from the pocket of tho advertiser, and he mu6t be aH stiff as iron with tho adver tising agent who wants to cut the rates In half and then take 50 per cent, commission on tho balance. Ho must see to the credit of adver tisers, and bo must be as careful that ho has every advertisement which appears In the col umns of his hated rival, as tho news editor up stairs Is not to be beaten on a piece of news. If any one thinks that tho publisher has a sine cure ho should try It for a week. It would materially change his Ideas.
