Is It Right far a Newspaper ta Criticise Public A«Mt ....• Vermillion Standard." Those who hive never held a public of fice or tve been so fortunate as escape n«wspi|h!r notoriety will not only answer :hti question in the kfflrmative without a tat on, but ihmkiue mierrogailjo veiy simp eone bni there are a There is no man tinker heaven, especially a public servant, but who at.rotne period of bis lite deserves just criticism whether it 'cu.s" or not, and when, given will be a belter man for it if lie is a an at all. It is unpleasant, to be sure, but the world de mand* ii, and it is the fear of it that kteps m. within bounds. It is much more cou venient, often, to do wrong than have the moral courage to do right, and were it not lor this tear of me iting ibe contempt of those we wi-h to have think well of us, soci ety would be in a fesrful condicion |and tbe innocent and week made to suffer. Peisonally it is an unpleasant duty for one to point out the faults of a friend, al though ii is ibe duty of a friend to do so— yet ofiimes one avoics it. Iu a publ capaci ty it is a duly that a true journalist will perform, whether pleasant or noi and some time in the luture even the one whose acts when made public gnaw at their pride, will thank ibe pen ihnt checked their course from thoughtlessness to bad, trom bud to worse —that is unless he.^ias chosen such a career. YANKTON, DAKOTA TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 8, 1879. great many people IU the world, and they are not all reuautt: from Vermillion, wbo cannot staDd rnticism, whether they deserve It or not Many then duk'bt in h-iarlog others criticised eei sharply but be wbo pro ties ibescis tlial lie ureoveied ill closd proxim ity to their do.m is itfien thounlti. out rageously cilmiurtl in h-8 rleeii.ii,and *bou!d it lie In tbeir power, they justil) tbrmsehea by persecuting the editor Knowing ibis to be humun uaiure, the editor must «xpect this course, aiid if right, public senttnieut will defend bitn, if wrong be deserves public censure if a man he will tske the const quences without giumbling. No editor can boaorably shirk this duty, although tbey nil wish tbal friends and foes wouid sbirk their faults, and ibus furnish no occasion for sa iog unpleasant things. An editorcsnnot.aff-ird.to compromise him self by ignoring one public servant's faults without compromising with all. When be doss ibis bis prestige is lost. Editors do not escspe this criticism, and oftunrs get a sufficiency, of it His articles are too radical tor one, snd not .enough so for others he fails to write an editorial on the ml j-ci oue reader tiiink- he should, or offends another if he does be praises the good acts of one indtvduil and wins lhe jealous bine of auoiher lor so doing some subscribers (a: though many who are not subscribers find fully as much fault) think certain mat ters just the thing for publication, others that it is not. Such is the criticism that an editor can depend upon each week and while the parlies who consider themselves aggrieved, work to suppress the sheet that has independence enough to show tbeir faults, no one, even those who know the editor has done right, cares to uphold him in it. Yet while wrong is wrong and exists, we, for one, believe that it is right to hue to the lines, let the chips fall where they may," so far as public affairs and public life is concerned. If we are wrong we will have to suffer the consequences, and will no doubt know better in the future if we are right we will have tbe sati|faction of knowing that we have not taken up the pen in vain. Al least the experiment is worth trying. MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH WALL STREET. New York, Jan. 8. Money—4c. Qoverments—Gtnerally firm. NEW YORK MARKET. New York, Jan. 8. WHEAT—Dull No. 2 red, $1.10.
