Weehlngton Post: Sylvester Scovcl
has -written to the New York World- a
fuW account of Ms encounter with Genera")
Shatter at Santiago, as a result of
which he was expelled/ from our military
lines and lost his portion- on the
World. If his account is true, the newspaper
which employed him should see
to hisimnyediote reinstatement. If it is
not truajhe World should* be denounced
for pubHMrtne it at oik
It is easy to see, however, even when
wo accept Scovel's version of the affaUr
as strictly accurate, that General Shafterh&A
Mbundxnt causes of provocation.
f?i#Hnn insurrection has dven birth
to a.new and sirvieter variety of JonruaJIs-in^the
Journalism of sensation, of
reckless exaggeration and -unprincipled
partisanship. Correspondent* were* in a
large majority of Inwtawces sent to
Cuba not- for the purpose of stating the
facts, but to bolster up a theory, Their
business -was to present the Cuban insurgents
as heroes and martyrs, as miracles
of valor and efficiency. They were
expected to represent the Insurgent armies
as victorious everywhere, the
Spaniards as being cooped' up in little
forts along the railroad' lines, and the
republican government a? practically in
possession of the island. They were to
create a public sentiment throughout
the country under the pressure of which
congrera would be forced to recognize
Cuban! independence.
We do not Wdnder that the correspondents
engaged' in this untoward' enterprise
began to exaggerate their own Importance
when they saw how their ac-,
tlvity was lnvpreiving the American' (
people, ana perceived' max iney mwj
raised' a national Issur. dividing /con- ,
gross and threatening the peace of the
executive mansion. Naturally they be- ,
came lnflatedvthought theraaelve? epoch
makers and met nightly around a t%ble ,
in the Jnglaterra cafe to decidte upon ,
new changes in the destinies of nation#.
It is easy to understand' that, when1 our
fleets and armies moved on to Cuba,
these enthusiastic youths accompanied
them, profoundly convinced that they 1
were the real originators of the war and j
fixed In the Idea that it was their duty
and- prerogative to direct campaigns, to
take prominent places In cIC theatrical
situations, and. generally, to preside .
over the entire tragedy. It was not so
unreasonable an assumption- after nil.
Men who had dune so much to brine ,
about the invasion were surely Ju-tlflert
In evnectlmt to take a prominent part la
Its conduct and arrangement.
It is easy to understand, however,
that our army and navy officers were 1
not prepared' to accept these correspondent
f*' views of the situation. They were .
proceeding under legitimate auspices 1
nnd were making war according to pro- '
fesslonafl regulationw. They did not rec- J
ognlze the Havana correspondent? as J
their proper advisers and guides ln"he
campaign. We cam understand that J
General Shafter did not see fit to call
Mr. Scovel'to his military fcouncns'or 16' ;
solicit his co-operation at any stnge of 1
the affair. It is more than probafble, on
the contrary, that he regarded volun- J
teer advice and Intrusion on the part ot
&pccia>_neww gatherers with impatience
and resentment, and1 that his temper
gave way under the stress of persistent
Importunity awl impudence. From his !
point of view, Scovel was an offender
When he insisted on: breaking Into a j
ceremony to which he had not been< in- j
vifed, nrnl we can- Imagine that his '
provocation was greater than he could J
bear with equanimity.
Nevertheless, although Scovel re"pre- 1
Rented in General Sha/ter's philosophy <
ih(? mort odious form' of so-called mod- '
trn Journalism, It will puzxle most
thoughtful men to Justify the New York
WVirtd In Us act of repudiation and rebuke.
Scovel had at least done the
World's work wtfl nnd faithfully. He
had sent to his employers exactly the
kind bt "news" they wanted. Ho
brought his iwwspaiper to the attention
r-.f the people In exactly the way the
World prefers. He offended Shifter beran.l
endurance, and was sultaWy punished
In the end. But whertlr.' did he
Iransjrre.** the laws whleh bind that paper's
representatives? It seems to us :
that Seovel Is the victim rather than
the criminal In this affair. So creditable
in alumnus should not have bren disowned
by the alma nutter to whleh he
has exhibited such loyal and affectionate
allegiance. -
