Me were in the responsible oflice of a
statesman. As a lesson to the young
who are not generally instructed to
look at affairs from this standpoint, it
a especially instructive.
When Louis Napoleon destroyed lib
erty in France by his coup d etat,
Heeve wrote "leaders" in the Times
"Utterly denouncing him. Lord Gran
ville, the premier, wrote to him that
such articles goaded Napoleon to do
,misohief to England and, he wrote,
"may seriously inconvenience us.".
In a reply Reeve propounded his
-riewa of journalistic responsibility: "I
.should agree with you in deprecating
the censure of the Times on the French
Government if I thought that it had
been incited by any foolish desire to
goad on Louis Napoleon to acts of vio
lence, or that it had been carried be
yond the bounds of a just commentary
m the events of the day." What are
those bounds? "The responsibility of
Journalists is in proportion to the lib
erty theyt enjoy. No moral obligation
can be greater. But their duties are
not the same, I think, as those of
Statesmen. To find out the true state
r. facts, to report them with fidelity,
to apply to them strict and fixed prin
c5p4es of justice, humanity and law; to
Inform, as far as possible, the very con-
lence of nations, and to call dowrn the
judgment of the world on what is false
or base or tyrannical, appear to me to
be the first duties of those who write.

words is heeded, good health will fol

reasons, principally, because it is con

analysis shows this to be a fact.
