THE TWO-CENT TERROR.
The First Weeks Experimsent at He
naced Journalism in Nhew York
Th Tim-s' Competitors
e NEW YORK, Sept. 23.-The journalistic
sensation of the week in this city is the
sudden and unexpected drop of the New
York Times from a 4-cent to a 2-cent paper.
- The previous wholesale price of the Times
to the trade was $3 per 100 copies. The
new price is $1.50. This immense reduc
tion has produced something like a panic
in all the other newspaper offices. One
described the effect as probably obliterat
ing one-third toone-half the value of New
York newspaper property. He said that
George Jones had flung a rock through
the plate glass window of every daily in
the city. The final effect cannot be seen,
but it is easy to say that a veritable strug
gle for existence will now begin in dead
earnest, and the weaker papers will inev
itably go to the wall. All further attempts
at making first-class news journals will be
gradually abandoned of necessity. The
average daily receipts of the Times on its
circulation have bees $1,050 per dav. At
the new rate it will realize $525 a day, or a
loss of $164,325 per year. The publisher
of the Ti'mes says he can afford to do it,
and it is understood that the circulation of
the paper has already doubled, and yester
day it sold between 70,000 and 80,000 cop
ies. He thinks it will go above 100,000
before the end of the month. But the Times
does not expect to have the cheap field all
to itself any length of time. Already the
Tribune has dropped from 4 to 3 cents,
and it may any day reduce to 2 cents. Mr.
Bennett of the Ferald is watching the ef
fect of the reduction on his circulation, and
he is undoubtedly losing thousands of
copies every day thus far. The belief is
that before long he will be impelled to an
nounce 2 cents as the retail price of the
Herald. Should he do so, he will lose a
cent a copy, representing a loss exceeding
$1,000 a day. The advertising patronage
of the Herald obliges him to print supple
ments continually, and the receipts at 1
and Y2 cents a copy would scarcely t.ay for
the white paper, hence the larger the cir
culation the more money he would lose. -
But the Sun is placed in as disagreeable
a position as the Herald. That paper is
barely half the size of the Times, and it
charges 2 cents. The eight page Times at
2 cents is cutting the ground from under
the feet of its little 2-cent competitor. Mr.
Dana will be obliged either to reduce the
price of his Sun to 1 cent, and fight for ex
istence with the Truth, The Journal, and
the News, all 1-centers, or enlarge his
sheet to practically double its present size,
aud double his expense at the same time.
Mr. Jones has put his rival on the sharp
horns of a dilemma. As to the 2-cent
World, its further growth has been stop
ped, anld a per ion of its recently acquired
."irculation will have to be surrenderled
back to the p tpers from which it was ab
stracted. The final upshot of the cut will
be that several of the present New
York dailies will suspend or consolidate,
and the survivors will be damaged pretty
seriously by the enormous reutrctton in
price, and at the satme time the reading
public will not be gainers in proportion to
the reduction in price. because they will
he furnished with an inferior class of
new papers as compared with what they
bave heretofore enjoyed.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23.-The day of the
shooting o1 President Garfield by Guiteau,
District Attorney Corkhill engaged a
young lawyer and stenographer to go to
Guiteau's cell and report an interview be
tween the district attorney and the assas
sin. Edmund A. Bailey was the name of
the reporter. By representing himself to
Guiteau as an attache of the New York
Herald, the assassin talked very treely and
the interview was turned over to Col.
Corkhill and became part of the record in
that celebrated case. Afterward Bailey
made frequent trips to the jail, and Gui
teau conversed with him very freely.
Bailey was well paid for his services, and
subsequently he sold copies of his inter
views to the terald exclusively, receiving
therefor $500. The possession of so much
money seemed to have upset the young
stenographer, and he launched out very
extensively on a life of dissipation. He
came in contact with a number of distin
guished people during the Guiteau trial,
and courted their society, living at the
best hotels and spending money lavishly.
The impression was made that he had un
limited means, and it was not long before
he: obtained the entree into the upper
circles. He maintained his extrava
gant course of life up to six
weeks ago, when he quletly left- Washing
ton, leaving numerous creditors. A dis
covery has been made which in a great
measure accounts for Bailey's having so
much money. Col. Enoch Totten, a lead
ing member of the Distrift bar, and one
of the counsel for the star route defend
ants, gave Bailey desk room in his office,
in return for which the latter acted as his
secretary. It now appears that Bailey
took advantage of the confidence reposed
in him, anid forged Col. Totten's name to
:paper to the extent of $1,000. He became
so expert in couhterfeiting Col. Titten's
iname that the latter finds some difliculty,
in distingutbig the forged from the gest
nuine signature. A number o( 6ther per
