VIRGINIA BEACH. ;VA., Juno- 25.—
!Tho beauty of the' weather here
to-day, the placid crando.ur of the
violet-tinted ocean, and' tho serene love
liness of an azure sky, have all combined
to inspire the members of the Virginia
Press Association with a degree \ot en
thusiasm which leads each cditor^to be
lieve that he could creditably sing the
tenor role in the opera "Pinafore." *
But 'the Old Dominion journalists, for
tunately, arc not singing In reality.* That
require.;; too ■ much physical exer
tion. They are content to bask In the
mellow June sunshine and chant- their;
Bonss In fancy, for the Influences of tho
Princess Anne Hotel are soporiferous and
enervating. One wants to o.uit ; work
\chon he comes here— in fact, quit every
thing except eating, sleeping., just a
•'little wee bit" of drinking, and' an: oc
cnslonal chat withladies who don't object
to smoking-. The newspaper men are
tremendously busy doing nothing. 'Their
programme is one of scientific idling, and
they; are doinf.- it. to perfection. -
EDITORS DOWN TO; BUSINESS.
True, there haye 1 been two business
meetings to-day, but ; they, were neither
Ktrenuous nor blood-curdling.- They were
lazy meetings, full., of drowsy, fun, and
nmiable interchanges of -repartee. The
men whose business it is to glorify Ora
tors do very little speaking /themselves.;
{t frightens the members of: the - press >■ to
talk on th«?ir feet. The lead pencil ■Is
Ihfir mepraphone. . . * :
The meeting this morning'was held on
the south: veranda of the hotel. Every
jword uttered had as an accompaniment
ihe rhythmic swish of the waves on the
mmnculate beach. President' Thacker,
(fiercely clutching a volume of Roberts'
"Rules of Order"— a profound work on
parliamentary procedure— called. the body
to order. .• : " ■-■ . ...\'i ' .-.-.. .-
Mr. J. L. Hart, with a. circumspection'
>orn of long years of residence near; the
Ktnte Fomale Normal School in Farm
;ville, acted as secrctar>*. ' - .
A COY PRESIDENT. , ■ '
Mr. Thacker was' not the autocratic
Tzar lhat one might have expected him to
Jio. His manner as a; presiding ofneer
was timid.. not to say coy. and he begged
&t the outset that the editors .would . not
tangle him up by forensic altercations or
points of order. , '' . .-
After the transaction-, of routine busi
ness, tho appointment lof the following
committees was announced:-

PRESIDENT THACKER'S REPORT.
Mr. Thacker then rend his annual re
j,ort as President of the association. It
•was cordially ■"received, 'for the paper was
frxc'cliently prepared, .and ..full of
considered, X meaty suggestions, which
mean dollars-and"cenls-to newspapers.
MR. THACKER'S ADDRESS.
Mr. Thacker made, an admirable ad-
Sress. After a few humorous references
fo his position, he said: . • ' : ;
"If you were to ask me. however, if
3vo have really; accomplished, anything,
my answer would necessarily -be In the
... »ic"cntive. It seems to ;me that the; time
has come for us to adopt a new platform
—to <1o something. What should .. be the
r-'ms and purposes of the association?
Ought this to be an: aggregation of pleas-
Tire-seekers on picnic bentr-or_ an asso
ciation of thoughtful men-. banded to
rether for mutual benefit and advantage?
The Virginia Press .A ssociation.;: is," or
thouldi be. a business institution, first-of
jIII. The social side of our annual, meet-_
fngs, erjoyable and : deslrahle. as is
that feature, should be a y secondary
conslfleration. We do not come, or ought
rot'! to come, to these- meetings' merely
for tho purpose- of having-a- good, time
cnc<^ a y on r. but to get out 1 of mutual as
t'ocJr.tioTi such practical benefit and ad
vantage as may be possible. We are to
, Br> scmr-thing more than give each .other
the glad hand and 'informally Intor
rhange ideas that may orj'/may not bo
raluable to the individual.; There is
trork for the association ;*as a body.^ to
So. It is very patent, of course, that in
an organization of this kind, .composed
of representatives of daily,'; •tri-weekly,
KPml-weckly, weekly arid pub
lications, there is a diversity ■ of inter-,
osts that precludes any unity of method
rind action in many directions, but there
is a wide field for operation in which ; all
the interests here repres&rited;are:lden
tical. Let us eschew chimerical schemes
nnd irridescent dreams, but at the same
time let us endeavor to accomplish: some
thing feasible and practicable..
LIBEL AND CONTEMPT LAWS. . ; .

nil newspapers can unite. That -Virginia
newspapers are not filched >out~of,'hun
dreds of thousands of dollars annually.

to the truthfulness and conservatlsin of

' MR.: CHESTERMAN'S PAPER.
Mr. Evan R.^Chc-sterman was the first
speaker to appear before the association;
KJs ■subject was '-'The Upstairs, or.; Ed
itorial ; End of a - Newispaper Office." ;
-" Mr. - Chesteririan appareritly twas scared
out /of his : boots '.when first presented, :but
as soon as he got his.wlrid'hethastened to
explain, that he /was in , reality reading ; a
paper which' another roan had ■ prepared
and;' had 'intended; to deliver. The speaker
naively added, rhowever, that all the good
things tobe said were his own and all trie
poor: things the; other fellow's." / v
He declared^ that th# phraseology of his
subject, ;", The Upstairs' Erid of Newspaper
Work." did not suit him for two reasons;
j first; because there. was no end to -news-.
! paper work, which is a night arid day job;:
and second; because the word
carried a 'horrible v suggestion";- ;'of-; broken
elevators and supernatural leg work.- He
declared that "journalism /is; an : -'endless
chain which keeps its devotees in" ; per
perpetual' bondage a nd cefles all .the laws
of nature arid : matrimony. Editors , know
queens of distant lands and beautiful
blonde ladies who figure In murders/ more
Intimately •than 'they do their own con
sorts." ■ ' - :.:, ; ';' '■• ■ ■ ; . '/ . ,'. \'. : . /
Mr: Chesterman waxed warm" if riot elo-;
quenfwhen he c-xclalmed: "But you: must'
not think that I/am above my profession.
On the contrary, none loves it * better.
'Mr. Dooley' hns pathetically and' feel
ingly said : . 'Orice a German always : a
rDutchman," and I will paraphrase his re
mark by, adding: 'Once : a* journalist, al
ways* a 'newspaper 'man— and; a pauper."
There is but one way to get us out. of the
business -when once we enter It, and that
is as the/ subject matter of an obituary,
sketch. Arid to tell/the truth; very :few
of us die. We haven't. the time. And it
costs money to get buried." , i r'y-i - *
• Th a speaker then -undertook ito' give, his
Ideas of the "best editor*' and in this con
nection he said: s \.
"But there are editors and editors, just
as there are different species of cab
bages and different grades of peanuts.
Some are better than others, but all.are
good. The tbp-n«tcher, however, in 'thjs
profession of unselfish mortals, is hewiio
knows what the public want, when/they
want It, and how it should be served.'"
Of course, Mr. Chestermari had his
whack at the critics of newspapers. He
said: "It Is* a peculiarity of the amiable;
pigheaded," and critical public always to
read the sensational articles in; ;'news;
papers first and,thtn to kick 'about 'them
afterwards." "\.
And next he.a dded: "It should not' be
understood,' however, tTiat 1 belong-to the
saffron class /of journalism. -v Nothing but
the jaundice could ever make me yellow,
if it were : not for the canary- tinted *■ pro
pensities of ithe public. Give me the; old.
sedate school which never so much /as
permits a lady to break her leg, but-cir
cumspectly Bpeaks of her fracturing -her.

.^'-Speaking of the relation of -the press to

was essentially a -part - of the . public

any., single-agency toeducate the -masses.
He pointed out ;that awhile : /the /schools

into more or less of .detail to show^hoff.

But he called attention? to the fact that

of the paper. He thoughts that the: real
