of the American newspaper in a way which is calculated 1
to make earnest newspaper :ople feel decidedly uneasy? |
until they have had time to set to the bottom of Mr. Vil- .
lard's argument.
Mr. Villard begins by pointing out that over the country
there is a tendency to reduce the number of newspapers
in the various towns by consolidations and by other methods,
and says that there arc many cities which are now
dependent upon one paper, usually an evening issue. There j
are perfectly simple and natural business reasons for this.
Mr. Vil lard admits. But if it costs a fortune every week .
to pay the hills of a going newspaper plant it is practically !
out of the Question for any but wealthy people to start new j
newspapers?and there's the rub as Mr. Villard sees it. !
He says;-' i
" i
"What is to bo the hope Tor the advoca .? of
new-born and unpopular reforms, it they cannot
hare a press of their own. as the Aboli- 5
iionists and the founders of the Republican
party set up theirs in a remarkably short time,
usually with poverty stricken hank accounts?
The 'journal of protest* it may be*truthfully
1 - said, is today b^ir.? confined, outside of the
Socialistic press, to weeklies of varying types,
and scores of them fall by the wayside."
Now if Mr. Villard bad in mlr.d when be wrote that

wrong* the columns of which two publications his distin- '
guishecl grandfather t'd the most effective cf his _.cat work
in the interest of hur.an freedom, the obvioc answer is
that there never was a time when it was easy to start and
maintain such newspapers. The Liberator particularly had ,
a bitter struggle. But if he was thinking of the press as a j
whole as it existed in country just previous to the Civil
wr.r. the reason it is r.o longer to be found is that the public
docs not want it. and having learned better would not
tolerate it The political "organs" of that day were narrow
minded, unfair, vindictive, sometimes dishonest and .
.all too frequestly ignorant and ill informed. They printed
nothing that would do the opposition any good and it was
usually regarded as part of the duty of men who worked
for these papers to concoct lies which were calculated to
do the opposition harm. Newspapers ojithe present day
are expected to. cr.d generally do. telfTRe lrut'-> about all
political parties and all public movements in their news '
columns. An organ is not needed for propaganda pur
? N poses nowadays if the movement is intelligently managed.
and the public would not tolerate an attempt to bring the I
other function of the old political journals into play. It is i
because their editors lose sigh: of this that so many so called '
journals of protest have short lives. There is no special
virtue in printers* ink. It cannot keep alive a political fraud
Bo matter how liberally it is used.
That no movement tvhich promises to become important
ever lacks editorial support and advocacy is porved by the

the Greenback movements .to mention some of those which
have come upon the stage since die birth of the Republican 1
party. Not one of these were denied a heating. They
had a press of their own and in addition they were given
much space in the columns^ of die newspapers which supported
the old line parties. And this will continue to be
true. The minute a newspaper stops being honest with its .
public it begins to go back, and soon there is an inviting
field for another journalistic venture. The business tendency
is to limit the number of newspapers, but from the
very nature of the enterprise a free field can only be enjoyed
by those which have the confidence and good will
of their public.
As for the attitude in Congress tovaard the newspaper
business, which Mr. Villard cites as a symptom of growing
hostility against~Amcrican journalism, it merely is the hostility
of a class, and it is a mighty healthy sign. There
was a time when politicians ran the newspapers. They do
not do it now. Newspapers are Republican, or Progressive.
or Democratic or of some other political faith because
they believe in the priciples of the party for which
they stand. That does not necessarily mean that they must
be for every and any man who happens to get a nomination
on the ticket of that party, and as a matter of fact hundreds
of them all over the country are demanding and exercising
the same right to pick their company politically that the
individual voter has demanded and got. That has made
the politicians as a class angry, and during the past ten
years both in Congress and in the legislatures of some of
the states they have attempted to take revenge.' But they
* 1 ?V?Ir.er fiaVC IIOl
have not had mucn success, i m
succeeded in checking the tendency to liberalization on the
part of the American press, and the type of politician who
thinks that the party press is a party creature is gradually
being pushed to the edge. In a few more years he will
be pushed clear off.
On the whole there is not the slightest cause to fe?I alarm
over the future of the American newspaper press. It is
better than it ever was in its primary function of furnishing
the news: it has a clearer idea of the service it owes the
community it serves and the Republic than ever before, and
there never was a time when it was more willing to give
aid to public movements which promise to be of value.
Even unpopular movements will get their fair share of
space if those who are engineering them arc sufficiently
-isrprising. Scott Nearing and Mr. Viliard's friends the
t^feMrican bolshevik! are roundly damned in the editorial
?S?1umns. but they look as good to the workers at the news
desks as do T. R. or Jess .Willard or any other popular
idol.
o
Xo matter what the dry statistics of the weather bureau
say there never was a winter like this one, for
there never was a time in the history of the country
when a long period of low temperatures, had an equal
opportunity to do damage and cause suffering. King
Winter in the past six weeks has been a better aid for
Germany than all the costly conspiracy against our in
dustries set up iu iui?
o
According to the program arranged for this week in
Congress the Senate Military committee is going to suspend
investigations while it devotes some time to the
question of creating a munitions director. Secretary
Baker is opposed to this move, hut fortunately the committee.
which has made a favorable impression upon
the country by the manner in which it has conducted
the inquiry into war preparations, is in position by this
time to be quite as good a judge of the proper action
to take in such a mattpr as is the Secretary, and it is,
moreover, free from the suspicion that it has come under
the influence or the War office system. If we
ought to have a munitions director the sooner v.-c get
him the better. ^
o
There will be considerable interest in tills district in
the testimony which Secretary I.anc and Francis S. Teabody.
coal production director of the National Council
of Defense, are expected to give today before tiie Senate
Manufacturers* committee. But under the management
of Senator Reed, its chairman, this committee has not
yet developed any facts that are either significant or
instructive, and the examination of these two men. who
could if they were permitted to. throw a great deal or
light on the coal situation of the country, may be in
keeping with the rest.
o
They are having winter weather on the West front
as well as in this country, and according to some of the
military observers this is the reason the much heralded
German offensive in that theatre has not been launched.
If that is the case, perhaps the weather has been doing
us a goo<^ turn of uasuspecle/I proportions. If the German
forlorn hope is delayed much longer it will not get
very far when it does start, and it may be followed by

THE STATE FIRST.
| From the Parhersburg Nevrs.
I it, ia iuic UWV? IV Cib S.?.- ,
j that the movement, begun in e?:nest.
i to secure protection for the state wit!- :
J respect to its gas resources, is a nove- !
j inent that should have begun five or
j ten years ago. although that fact is
i true. The important thing is that.
! though late, we have begun.
j The program for bringing a definite
i form of protection to the industries ct ;
West Virginia seems rational aud
j should bear fruit. At the least, if we
| are helpless as some legal advocates
have always contended, we are at least_
going to prove it.
, In the meantime the inters t o'
; Parkersbnrg in this pressing problem j
is so great that "the city's responstbil- j
t ity in a general movement should not '
j be minimized. The beneficence of fuel .
i gas has never made a stronger appeal 1
' than in this year of coal shortage and !
j fuel famine. We should be arous-a to j
! the point or making the most of ever;- ,
| opportunity.
TIMELY MOVE.
! From the Wheeling Telegraph,
j The organization of the Wejst Yir- j
| ginia Gas Consumers Association was
I a timely move.
j The object of this association is to
| conserve, if possible, the use of natural >
j gas in West Virginia so that the local
i consumers will receive the first < aii :
j on the supply before it is exported out ;
i of the suite.
Governor Comtvell. who is in sym
pathy with the movement, says the
remedy lies within the power of the j
State Public Service Commission, and ,
that should it prove otherwise he is j
willing to call a special session of the ,
i legislature to deal with the question, j
i It is high time to get busy 011 the j
' matter while the necessities of tin'
j case arc so apparent to everyone.
I ^MACHINERY ON THE FARM.
From Timely Hints of State Dept. of
i 'Agriculture.
1 The farmer must use his labor to '
the best possible advantage. It is nee-j
essary that he get more done in a day i
than when labor was cheap. That:
can be done only by a farmer studying j
his business more closely, having it I
planned out just what he is going to i
! have his labor do during the day, and
i if possible from week to week.
We do not know just how far the
tractor could play its part in assisting !
the West Virginia farmer in produc-l
ing greater crops. Quite a few are
j in use now in differ cut sections of
j the state where lands arc sufticiently
! level for their use. but we would adI
vise that farmers wherever they "can
i give tliis matter consideration and in- i
vestigation. and utilize every form of
machinery they can to offset the-'
shortage of labor. .We must produce
more, say the dispatches, than we
have this year, and it would be a good
idea to debate this matter thoroughly
