A POET'S FAILURE
Edwin Marram's Experience
wilii a Newspaper.
PRACTICAL WORK TOO PROSAIC
An Early Venture In San Jose A
Path That Had Been Traveled
Before Many Times.
(San Jose Mercury.)
In the good old days, when hope
sprang eternal in the human breast,
and when the rainbow hue of promise
made brilliant the sky of the ambitious
and the aspiring, it followed as a nat-
ural sequence in order of events, as a
rule in fact, from which there was no
recorded deviation, that a meeting be
tween an unkempt newspaper man out
of a job and an eager-eyed printer with
a vest pocket full of type meant the
publication of a paper to "fill a long-
felt want" and incidentally several
other things which aforetime had been
doing a windy business in the vacuum
line. If an "angel" were found in the
guise of a man with a superabun
dance of shekels awaiting investment,
one who had toiled and perspired and
grubbed and saved in order that the
sere and yellow of life might find ihim
handsomely equipped for a stout re
sistance to the onslaught of the wolf
which haunts the doors of the poor, it
would be dollars to nickels that the
existence of the "want" would be pro
longed for a period measured by many
months. The end, however, would al
ways be the same an utter collapse,
a newspaper man again out of a job,
a printer minus a vest pocket full of
type and an "angel" without money
but with a world of valuable but non
San Jose is strewn with the wrecks
of such ventures, and could the his
tory of each be written, with no emas
culation of facts, it would prove most
interesting reading for an idle hour.
One is recalled to the mind of the
writer by the prominence that has
lately been given the poetical work of
Edwin Markham. The author of that
fine conception, "The Man With the
Hoe," was once a resident of San Jose
and a newspaper proprietor. It was
away back in 1874, shortly a-fter Pro
fessor Markham had graduated from
the Normal School. His tendencies
were decidedly literary, and when he
was asked to join in a scheme to es
tablish a daily newspaper, in the co
lumns of which he migh- have unlimit
ed opportunity for the publication of
effusions of both poetry and prose, with
so fear of a blue pencil making his
soul sick the answer was ready ac
quiescence. The venture was called
The Garden City Times, and the origi
nal proprietors were S. Harris Herring,
Perriman F. Page, Edwin Markham
and E. T. Sawyer. Herring was then
the publisher of an agricultural paper
and a clever writer on practical sub
jects. He is now a ranch owner near
Sartoga. 'Page was a printer, who had
studied for the ministry. He lent the
moral support to the undertaking,
while the other partners furnished the
brains, such as they were. There was
no business manager, for it had not oc
curred to these innocents that an at
tache of that description was at all
necessary for the success of a newspa
per project. They fondly imagined
that the mere announcement of the
publication would be followed by such
a rush of business men to the office as
would necessitate the employment of a
score of clerks to attend to their re
quirements. Besides, of what use
would be a business manager a man
to quickly drum up advertisements for
immediate financial needs when an
"angel" had been secured, whose purse
was large and where promises were
all that could be desired?
The "angel" was old Ben Casey, a
rancher living on the Los Gatos road,
who had but one hobby and that, tem
perance. How the hobby ruined the
prospects of the paper will soon ap
pear. The Garden City Times duly made
its appearance, and, what was a
novelty for San Jose, with the tele
graphic dispatches. It was a success
from the start. Markham was the
literary editor and assisted in the re
porting, and his faculty of throwing a
glamor of romance over the most tri
vial local subject, even though it
chanced to be the erection of a chicken
coop, or the reception of a .watermelon
from an admiring subscriber, gave such
interest to the local columns that his
salary was advanced after the first
week. The city and managing editor
was E. T. Sawyer, and his principal
duties consisted in consigning to the
waste basket such editorials as in his
opinion were not on all fours with
the conservative policy of the paper.
These actions were considered high
handed by Mr. Herring, and after they i
had continued for a week the editor
threw up his job in disgust and pre
sented his interest in the paper to the
About this time the advertisement
of a saloon was handed in and in
serted. It caught the eye of Casey and
there came a quick and imperative de
mand for its withdrawal. A council of
war was held. It was realized by all
the partners that a crisis had been
reached. To take out the advertise
ment meant that in future The Garden
City Times would be not a newspaper
for all classes, but one lined up on the
side of temperance. On the other hand,
to allow it to remain meant the with
drawal of the financial backing. The
partners were young and brim full of
confidence. They fondly believed they
had San Jose at their feet. Besides,
they chafed under constraint. What
did Casey know about running a paper
anyway? He was a crabbed old has
been a man with one idea. Let him
pull out his money. The Garden City
Times could stand the loss, for every
thing had thus far gone to show that
it was securely founded on the rock of
favorable public opinion. So it was re
solved. The advertisement stayed in
and Casey went out.
This action took place on the second
day of the second week of publication.
The news spread. Within twenty-four
hours every man in town who had a
bill against the paper presented it with
the abrupt request for instant payment.
The neat little song-and-dance pre
pared by the partners in anticipation
of the rush, was received in silence.
The expectation had been that an en
core would be demanded. Forced to
the wall the partners paid out all their
available cash. Then they began to
breathe freely again. In many respects
it was like a run on a bank. But many
banks had weathered such storms and
so would The Garden City Times
weather this one. Markham was
sanguine that the Rubicon had been
crossed and he drew such a picture
of the future that when he had finished
his partners would not have hypothe
cated their respective interests in the
paper for many thousands of dollars,
though at the moment there was not
enough coin of the realm in their jeans
to purchase coffee and doughnuts to ap
pease a hired man's appetite.
But the period of elation did not last
long. The printers, led by Dan Toy,
the foreman, wanted assurance that
they would be paid at the end of the
week, else they would quit in a body.
From optimists the partners became
pessimists, and the falling-in spirits
affected the tone of the paper. The
local columns ceased to display either
sparkle, dash or romance. Markham,
instead of skarrying about town with
a smiling face anil an eager, confident
look in his handsome eyes, dawdled
listlessly in the editorial room and
turned out copy with the scissors. The
city and managing editor, who was
also the editor-in-chief, republished
his own articles with "by request'
over each in brackets. The inevitable
end was approaching. Despite a favor
able public opinion, the windy pro
mises of enthusiastic friends and the
important fact that the paper had come
into the field to "fill a long-felt want,"
there was a conspicuous and lamenta
ble lack of the silvery sinews of war.
It takes money to make the mare go.
After ten days of experience the part
ners came to the conclusion that as
they couldn't either fish3 or cut bait,
they would go out of a business that
required the doing of either. So Un
collected all the bills due on advertis
ing, paid off the printers and then
slowly wended their way to St. James
Park, where seated on a bench in a
shady spot they divided $28 into three
equal parts, pocketed each his sHare
and talked of emigrating fo the South
