In reply to a lengthy speech by Sana
tor Mitchell the other day touching tho

showing that tbe object in granting tho

one class or section at the expense of
another but for the purpose of equaliz
ing all interests preventing the confu

The late distressful nccldent on th9
Quiuoy railroad by which twentytwo
persons were killed and injured tba en
gineer states was occasioned by tbe care
lessuess of a working party In leaving a
jack upon the track A day or two
since loss of life occurred In this statu
bocnuse both engineer and brnkeman
were asleep at their posts Scarcely a
day passes that the Associated Press dis
patches do not tell of railway auoldonts
more or less fatal resulting in most in
stances from gross neglect or crlmlna
carelessness Responsibility should be
fastpned and tbe guilty brought to jus
tice Human life is too precious to be
wantonly destroyed and travelers have
a right to expect safety so far as human
foresight can secure it Carelessness in
positions of trust amounts to criminality
nnd an economy that compels men t °
labor to exhaustion is not only cruelty to
them but unpardonably hazardous to
Master Workman Powderly In an ap
peal to the publio states tbe case ot the
New York Central railroad strikers The
strike originated he finds in tbe dismis
sal from tbe service of the company ot a
few men who were never told the reason
for their discharge The cause of their
dismissal be finds Is that they belong to
the Knights of Labor The railroad
managers deny any suoh pretense or
cause and Mr Powderly says plainly
that he does not believe Mr Webb o
Munager Toucey when making such de
nial Asked by the strikers to submit
tbe reasons for their discharge to arbi
trators tbe managers entered a prompt
refusal holding that tbey have
an absolute right to employ and dls
obarse whom thoy please when they
please and the same is nobodys busi
ness but their own There are tboso
who will deny suoh autocratlo and irre
sponsible power In a corporation when
carried to extremes But however that
may beit seems that the strike Is only just
begunend being indorsed by a unanlmo ns
vote of the executive committee of the
< I
Knights Is to be prosecuted in a Qght to
the finish Other branches ot tbe
Knights will wall walk out tbe firemen
and possibly tbe engineers on tbo Vander
bllt lines will join tbe strikers and a
general tieup nnd consequent demorali
zation confusion aud losses lu busi
ness circles will follow It is an
ugly and muih Vo be condemned
affair all around no matter which side
Is to blame Tbe public has rights as
well as tbe company or tbe workmen
nnd yet both seem to have acted in utter
nnd complete disregard ot that tact
Tbe matter in dispute Is a contemptible
trifle about which to begin a war that is
to result so disastrously uot alone to the
combatantsbut to the publio Tbe publio
knows uotbing and cares less about it
It is th duty of railway compaules to
deal fairly and justly by their employes
and to exhaust every honorable means to
prevent trouble It Is likewise tbe duty
of employes to be faithful and consider
ate ot their employers rights and to
avoid hasty Illadvised and precipitate
conduct when disputes arise As
it now appears neither party
to tbe quarrel manifested tho slightest
disposition to avoid a fight or seemed
to care an iota for the consequences to
the publio The strike seems to have
been a rash and headlong movement
and the prompt refusal subsequently of
VicePresident Webb to arbitrate and
Put nn endto the contention showed
that conscious ot untold millions at bis
back he felt that be could afford to snap
bis fingers at the strikers and the publio
The claim upon either side that a prin
ciple was luvolvod when both wero
trampling upon principle and outraging
the rights of tbe public is a delusion and
a sham
There Is perhaps no part of newspaper
work where moro nice disurlmluation ij
needed than In what Is termed sensa
tional matter There Is a difference be
tween a news item aud one that feeds
only a prurient curiosity While it may
be urged that a newspaper is a buslnatg
enterprise It Is also true that it is a
raorul agent The public crave news
and the daily press is suppysed to cater
to it How far an editor Is morally
bound to satisfy this oraving and Is re
sponsible for the effect tbe publication
ot news matter is likely to produce is
open to discussion Mans mental as
well as physical nature Is subject to
morbid cravings uud the appetite grows
by what it feeds upon and In each case
the result is unsoundness and at lust an
utter rejection of wholesome food
Tbe simple statement of crime com
milted or of some social outrage con
veys all that can be termed news while
an enlarging of tbe facts a dressing In
fervid language of a leprous subject a
display in glaring headlines ot Its most
disgusting features Is pandering to a
vitiated tasto that is unworthy the btgb
position claimed by the press for Itself
Not only is it dishonorable but It is
also dishonest it is so because without
an Intelligent decent cllentelle tbe
modern newspaper would be an Impossi
bility as to this tbe management must
look for permanent support The
decent element of society has a right to
demand that papers which go Into thelr
homes shall not go as wolves In sheep
clothing that their claims of clean
journalism shall uot be a pretense aud
that whenever the managers of any
paper decide to make It a Police Gazette
they shall so declare and seek for patron
age In tbe slums thatsupply material
Aside from tbe moral aspect there Is
an argument that reaches tbe most ob
durate stickler for tbe sensational style
It is the exchequer argument A rich
item handled in the highest spiced
style may sell a large number of extra
copies and if these Items como in rapid
succession tbe Sash may seem to be a
steady fire but Is It so The newsboys
cry Heres all about tbe eto
and run to and fro between the offloe and
streets until the extra edition is ex
hausted but when tbe subscriberslist
is overhauled how many names have been
added and how many advertisers have
been convinced by this extraordinary
sale that tbe paper Is their best medium
to reach customers Should sensation
follow sensation the character ot the
paper becomes known and those who buy
and sell belonging ns the majority do
to the decent element wilt refuse their
patronage to a journal tbey hesitate to
admit into their homes
However d praved a mans tastes may
be there are few that have descended to
so low a depth ag to be Indifferent about
the class ot literature which falls into the
bands of their sons and daughters The
pretext that tbe ostentatious record of
crime maices It hideous and debars others
from Imitating is of all pretexts tbe most
flimsy Never in the moral history of
mankind bos It been shown that famil
iarity with crime aud an Intimate knowl
edge of tbe details In its commission have
become a lesson in morals On tbe con
trary it has always been conceded that
famlllary with vice hag led finnlly to Its
adoption with all its hidcousness The
downfall ot many a son and daughter is
direotly traced nnd openly charged to
tbe Influence of evil literature
Let those who would contend for the
other side carefully review tbe character
ot such journals as have withstood all
storms and retained the confidence of
the reading publio let them examine
the columns and see the amount of bus
iness represented there and think of
the influence they weild then say If It
can be said that the prurient the Ti
cIons the sensational in journalism Is the
way to permanent prosperity What

that developed considerable speed and
