"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. May we not
find sanctuary from the piratical
devourers even i? the church?
What Is a "mhjhmnstf?" Congress?
man Foster of Vermont Inserted In
the ?Congressional Record a scvore
criticism of the Postal Commission's
hill to regulate second class pos?
tage, and among other things the
bill was called a "mishmash." Mr.
Foster please explain.
There are now 13 lines of steam?
ships between Naples and Now Yurie.

There is in Albany already a

corners at once.?Cleveland Plain

"The size of Mr, Rockefeller's gift
of $32 000,000 to the General Educa?
tion Board should not blind the
people to the methods by Whiclr this

Bryan. Should we force Mr. Rocke?
feller to keep his money because
we do not approve the methods by
which he made It??Buffalo Express.

"My baby was about nine months
old when she had rash on her fnco and
feet. Her feet seemed to irritato her
most, especially
nights. They would
causo her to bo

and sometimes sho
would cry until sho

always used Cuti?

many cures by tho

In a few hours, and before I had used
one box of thoCuticura Ointment her feet
wer? well and have never troubled her
since.- I also *ised it to removo what
is known as "cradle cap" from her
head, and it worked liko a charm as it
cleansed and healed the scalp at thesnmo
time. . Now I keep Cuticura Ointment
on hand In case of any littlo rash or
insect bites, as it takes out tho inflam?

tho means of helping other suffering
