FBIDAT. .HAY 7. 18w ADVERTISING AGENCIES. Soma time since the Appeal pointed out to the press the manner in which it was being gouged by the advertising agencies, and our exchanges, which have expressed any opinion upon the subject, are in full accord with our ' ws. This is from the simple fact that there can be but one opinion regarding the matter. A good many papers are silent concerning the merits of the case from the fact that probably fear to lose the advertising which these agen cies might possibly throw in their way. The Austin Reveille says: The Carson Appral devotes over a column spsce in showing up the manner in which ad vertising agents professional do business, and how cutely they swindle the country and distant newspapers. The newspaper man will take the m st money by having nothing whatever to do. with these professional bilks. Almost without an exception, these profes sional agents should be sentenced to a term of twenty years, if not for life. A newspaper which is obliged to depend up u these agencies for support should never be published at all. A town that will not sup port a good newppaper does net deserve to have one. A paper which is crammed with cuts of organs, carriages, sewing machines and patent medicines is s standing commentary, either on the incapacity of the editor or the litck of enterprise on the part of the business men of the city where the paper is published. A live newspaper should be able to command enough good home advertising to enable it to thrive without the assistance of cheap adver tisements from abroad. As a rule country newspapers are too large. Publishers are anx ions to make a display and ruu from five to ten columns of dead or badly paying advertise ments in order to convey the idea that they are doing a rushing business. This is a dead loss because there are plenty of men who, if tbey find that their advertisement is run after they have ordered it out, will conclude that it is a cute stroke of business to get their adver tising free. The advertising received through the agents is usually of the cheapest ort and subject to twenty-five per cent, dis count. The agent is not responsible for those who do not choose to pay and this stakes the discount about fifty per cent. You must wait year for the money and then, as a rule,take it out in ink, paper or material that you don' want. You must in addition use more paper in printing your jeurnal, and with paper at its present prices another loss is entailed which runs your discount into the neighborhood of seventy-five per cent. Now does this pay? It is in the power of the press to cut loose alto gether from these concerns or compel them to adopt another system of dealing. The best plan of all would be for publishers to cut down tho size of issues to the requirements of bnsi nets As long as subscribers are furnished the same amount of reading matter they will not complain, and every dead advertisement taken out of a paper gives the live ones a bet ter chance. The saving in ink and paper at the end of the year will just about equal the profit made in transacting business through an advertising agency. A Clown's Religion. The funeral of Patrick Hay, better kuown as James Cooke, the clown and equestrian, was held yesterday afternoon. When Cooke knew that he was about to die he was asked by a. priest, who at tended him, to renounce the principles of Ma onry, t which he had been ardently attach ed from his boyhood. He refused to do thin, saying that Masonry was as goed to die by as the Catholic faith, in which he had been ed uoated. . He then requested that none but Masonic ceremonies should be held over his body and his request was fulfilled to the letter. The Memphis (Tenn.) Appeal devotes its leading article to "the infernal mosquite," closing its invectivs thus: "The ant is indus trious; the bee is skillful and useful ta man; the f ea has been taught amusing tricks; spi dars have been made the pets and relieved the tedium of solitary prisoners; but the infernal mosquito was uever known to perform a soer itorious act; all his energies are deveted to making an unmitigated nuisance of himself, and he has been eminently successful." Tub propositon to impeach Mayor Kalloch of San Francisco, meets with the endorse ment of all law abiding and honest people. The man is a disgrace to the city he presides over; to the profession he makes a Mouth piece of and to the coast ha lives on. San Francisco can only redeem itself by kicking him out of office as expeditiously as the law will allow. ' Secretary Sherman has given orders to tho San Francisco Mint to stop the Mint's subscription to the Daily Stock Rrport, on ac count of its allusions to the assinine public performances John Sherman. This shews Sherman to be more microscopic in his char acteristics than his most contemptuous haters ever supposed hiiu to be. Thb New York Sun endorses Judge Field as a Presidential candidate on account of his hard money record. If, tho Sua but knew how much harder our money record is than Field's Arizona wants ostrich farms.' She claims to have all tho requisites except tho ostriches. HONOR AT WEST POINT. The trial of cadet Whittaker is showing up the calibre ot the cadets at West Point ia a way which must by this time have made the Country thoroughly ashamed of most of them On the question of "honor" of this despicable class of snobs the Stockton Mail has the fol lowing sensible remarks: We are hearing, in connection with the Whittaker affair at West Point, a' good deal of taik about honor. General Scoeaeld would seem to think that the cadets are endowed with a particularly fine species of it, and ac tually issued an order the other day express ing his unshaken and unmistakable confidence in them, their honor, and all the rest of it. We are told that such a thing as lying is never permitted at West Point and that the cadet who lies is immediately ostracised by his fel lows. Unfortunately all this fine business is shown, by the evidence of the cadets them selves, to be a mere hollow sham, a miserable aping of the old code of honor which we all admire so much and by which so few of us are ruled. The truthfulness of young gentle men is shown to be of much the same quality as their chivalry. They were officers and gentlemen, but they snubbed and ill-treated, in a cowardly, pro longed, deliberate and brutal manner a fel low cadet, as good as they in every respect, and in many respects better, ihey would never tell a lie, but they were in the habit of evading the officials who trusted them, break ing the rules of the institution, and stripping off their unitorm for the purpose of visitmX for bidden haunts outside the Academy;and their sense of honor is so high that they feel con strained to betray the saloon-keeper who shel tered them ou their midnight furays and kept their disguises for them. tuih are too often the honor of the lips and the honor of the hands and heart; so it begiBS to be that the man who stickles most for utward points of honor is most likely to be at heart a black guard and a coward. l he ikibcne Kf.formed. There was a time when the Tribune believed that a daily newspaper had the ri;ht to make public prop erty of private character. It spared neither age, sex nor condition, but abused all within its reach without the slightest regard for conse quences, lo enumerate the list of hearts that have ached, to tell of all the tears that have been shed by reason of the brutal and malig nant libels that have from time to time ap peared in the Tribune is more of a task .than we care to undertake. During the years that Deacon Parkinson has sojourned in Carson he has delighted to trample upon the feelings of his neighbors and taken pains to abuse most foully the parties to whom he was the most indebted for kindnesses. Must of the citizens whom he libeled were men who had advanced him money to save him from bank ruptcv or disgrace.

When the Appeal set about reforming its sin-besotten coteiuporary it did not expect to make any marked impres sion upon it insidu of six months. Already, however, we see flittering sins of a change for the better, as the following, written by the junior proprietor in last evening's paper shows: The Slanderir. The character slayer is worse than the man slayer, for the former kills his victim at once, and that is compara tively the end of it, while the other inflicts a lifelong misery and woe. He is also nobler of the two, if any degree of nobility can be pre dieted of either, for he braves the penalty of the law he violates, while the other is a sneak' ing, lying villain, thoroughly saturated with a quality of meanness from which even the sneak thief who steals into your hallway and appropriates your property, would shrink with disgust. The Tribune has for years preached sermons on faith, on purity of living, on charity, and on gratitude until its conspicuous hypocricy nauseatea its reaaers. now it preacnes a sermon (the first iu its life) which falls upon our own ears with a sounding resemblance of sincerity. It is a cry of anguish from the in ner depths, the wail peecacimns. A good deal of this controversy might have been avoided had our word of warning been heeded, a good deal more had the solicited apwlogy to the memory of Henry R. Mighels been promptly made. It is not too late to make it now, When it is too late, let no one say that we did not present the opportunity. The Tribune fixed the time for this fight, selected the weapons and chose the cround. All we ask is to dictate the terms of peace. It seems only fair that we had something to say it the mat ter. A IfoKWEGiAN, Ernest Frolich, thinks he has found in the Indian rice of American swamps a living proof of the truth of Snorre Sturlsan's history of Seif Ericsson's visits to this country nearly nine hundred years got The voyagers reported fiuding in vmland not eniy an abundance or wna grapes out also a kind of gram, which Mr. frolich believes to have beeu the Indian rice, or wild rye.
