Poitomce ??leocnd-olaie matter. 8UNDAY, FKBRUARY 24, 1907. "FIT TO PRINT." At n dinner given to the American (Newspaper 'Publishers' Association dn Now York tho other night, Rov. Dr. Frank O. Hall, pastor of the Church of Divine Paternity, one of the largest, and most Influential con? gregations in Wie Metropolis, rc nponded to the toast of "Fit. to Print." Among other things Dr. (Hall said: "What Is lit to print? Gentlemen. I say to you, givo uh tho facts. If It ibo true that lullllonalro geniuses and millionaires who aro not geu in so 8 aro debauching tho girlWood of America, I say to you, in spite of any dictum from tho national capital -?give us tho facts. 'And having tho facts, if tho po fllco department, can do nothing, if tho society for Uio Prevention of Cr lino can do nothing I say to you that tho nijljrie;' vlfich has lost tho ipower?it' once had to make and un ?inuke men, will Join hands with an uhfetorod press to make tho lives of ufooso merry gentlemen less mer ?ry than Ihey have 'boon. 1 say to yon give us tiho facts and wo will make better men and 'bettor women out of the children of Amer? ica." 'Publicity of the burning questions of tho hour seems to reign in the sentiment of Dr. Hall's speech^ T?ut Ihehiiul it all and botwoon tha linos can bo read a protest against liar rowmlndness. It is naturally gratifying to The Daily Press t'hat n man or such standing and distinction as Dr. Hall should so thoroughly agree with tho Ideas of th'is paper as they were expressed in an editorial some few dags ago in reply to a friend of the paper who, In a commendable Spir? it, too The Daily Press to task: for publishing many of the details of the Thaw trial. Wbllo the Press did not at the ttnio bring out very strongly Hit- key note of Dr. Hall's utterance, it. wishes to say that It ?jbeiloves that the day of narrowmind Mcss Is past. Thero is a now dawn; :in fact a full fledged daylight, of opinion in regard to these matters. Tho bigot has no place in the world's history, any longer, whether It be fn matters of world Importance or in I those which are purely local. Tho people, as Dr. Hall says, want the facts regardless of what they arc. 'As society is now constituted these jifaets cannot all be of the order the pure minded and unsullied ,aoul desires, and if Cite plain un? varnished truth must be told It is siot. of the higher things of which the .people, -desire to read. Tho ;Daily Press is not going to attempt to shW why such is the case, but .that it is there is not a doubt. There was-; once, you know, an old Jtlng who thought that he. could |?weep 'back the tides but failure ?was 'his lot w'.ion he made the at? tempt, and so it. would mean fail? ure for the dally press which re? fused lo give the fact;;. The peo? ple want t.iiem whether tiioy are de? cent or no;, and by no; giving Crem and in thht manner trying to combat public opinion one would meet the tauiu Late of ihe old king win* many yearB ago tried to keep tho tiro from arising on his shores. One Is as great tolly as the other. EVELYN NE9BIT THAW. The truth?the naked truth, uf woys unpleasant sometimes dam? ning truth and all the truth, so far as District Attorney Jerome has chosen to have it fall from her Hos, has been told by Evelyn Nosblt Thaw. And seemingly obliv? ious or regardless of Its conse? quences. Me told t'.ds truth In a manner that seemed to drive home a conviction that If there Is no other virtue now to bo set down to her credit tbero Is still the one incomprehensible adh'eronce to child like veracity. Not one woman In a thousand?not one woman In ten thousand?could have mode the de? basing admissions which who has made with simple candor and h'nvc held up her head, for shame. Evelyn Nosblt Thaw has demand? ed that flho be not Judged by the true standard of Uit> moral ethics of the Tenderloin. This Is her shield, this Is her only protection save the crowning glory of her mar? vellous Ingenuousness?and her baby face and Innocent big eyes and 'her glrllsW figure, nnd quaint uaJvctc which 'baffles suggestion of dupli? city. Even when there 'is but one logical conclusion from the grue? some truth of her confessed acts, one turn from the cruel demonstration of logic and reason, without rea? son, Chat ttfo girl was unconscious of the degradation Involved In the long Intimate association with her betrayer, tho continued nccoptanco of his bounty, tho desertion of her mother for tlAs luxury provided by another lover, nnd even tho taking of the money from the man who hod done her wrong while she was living upon tbfe generosity of the young millionaire suitor to whom she had contested that wrong so grievous as to preclude the thought of marriage. If she be honest, hon? est ns she looks. Evelyn Nosblt Thaw Is unfathomable. It Is well for the Thaw girl that She appeals to the highly Imagina? tive temperament, for her testimony will not bear cold,' critical annlysls. Without her Vi?urlog personality then* would not today be,, one per? ceptible pulsation of sympathy for tho woman who was true to no ono, never even recognized the law of the Tenderloin?that purchase earns possession. Sho ha* sat upon tlHo witness stand while the district attorney shredded garment after garment, until not a thread of wom? anly Instinct not a dlscernahle stitch of Honor or of modesty re? mained of all the ralnment of In? jured Innocence with Which her own original fanciful story had clothed her. The woman who could for hours withstand the lash ns admin? istered in the 'hands of the district attorney Is not deserving of ad? miration. A good woman, no mat? ter how bravo and Courageous could bear such no ordeal. It is only the brazen soul that has' boon hard? ened and warped by immorality that could face a court room without tremor and fence and parry with the prosecuting lawyer. There must ab? solutely have been lost every sense of decency until soul mind and body became that of a degenerate. LET THE OFFICE BOV BEWARE. A slgnlftieaht advertisement has appeared In the News York news? papers. It expressed the deslro of tho -business office of the Manhat? tan opera hoiiso to find an office girl to roplnco Lie boy. The girl has been found and employed. ? Tho office boy Is too Str mucus and self-sufficient a character to be disturbed 1>y such an Implied threat, but. this call for an office girl con? tains startling possibilities. There nre certain kinds of work for which the office girl would not be fitted, but there are other kinds of which si-fc Is entirely capable. It Is true that the rule of tho office boy Is to firmly establish light? ly to be shaken.- Decades of unre? strained autocracy have given to the throne upon which' he sits a ?tern solidity. Rut tho feminine hand has gently, yet quite Irresis? tibly, 'pushed many a monarch from his (high) seat. Is history to repeat Itself? Is there not'Vihg sacred from the trusts? Only a day or two ago tho story canto out of Boston that charges had been made that the American Bible society was in real? ity a trust, actually controlling th'o 'publication and distribution of the Holy Scriptures, and now comes a report tthat the head or the school furniture trust has boon arrested for conspiracy In restraint of trade In connection with t'ae manufac? ture of church pews.
