All rights af republication of special dispatches herein are also resen ed A PAGE FOR CHECKERBOARDS — If there is one place more than another where news paper readers should look for truthful opinions, it is on the editorial page. But they don’t always find them. In publications dedicated to tht ambitions of a single class, or guided by the policy of “grab every nickel, the editorial page is used as a checker board. On it the editor plays his own little selfish game. He adroitly pampers one stratum of society and howls down another. Right or wrong he champions the class which he believes will do him the most good. It may be “big busi ness" or something else. No matter which, such policies long indulged in lead to difficulties, misunderstanding and friction between men. There is another type of newspaper, however, which bends its efforts to bring misunderstandings to an end. Guided by high ideals and looking well to the interests ol ail, instead of itself or in a single class, it takes the side of right, irrespective of whether it is with the majority or against it. No class or clan of interests are at all times right or at all times wrong. Many times they are partly right and wrong. It is the duty of a newspaper to deal honestly with men and issues. In no other way can it deal honestly with its readers. Such a paper is The Gateway. Read the editorial col umn the same as you read the various columns containing the newsjof the day, the local and the telegram. If you do not agree with the writings, don’t knock, but write to the editor, set him right—but permit him to print your communication, using your name. But always bear in mind the editor is honest in his opinion. Again, do not think that any newspaper nowadays is a “mucker.” The muckraking day has passed and gone forever. Don’t ask an editor to “start something” that vou would lie afraid to do. The editor has his business to % attend to—the same as you, only his business is broader, perhaps, than yours. The newspaper reaches the masses —you only reach, perhaps a handful. PATRONIZE THE HOME MAN Yesterday a man in Seward asked for figures upon a small job of printing. “You are too high," said he, when the price was quoted. “I can get it done cheaper in Seat tle.” Very well, Mr. Seward Man, suppose every member SATISFY! What does that mean ? T&ifll know when yoa smoke _ c THE REAL PEACE MOVEMENT. 1----— — Los Angeles Times. of The Gateway staff would adopt the same policy, “get it in Seattle because it is cheaper.” We recognize you can't sell at Seattle prices, neither, can we. The reason in both instances is the same. But you are not going to send your printing to Seat tle or anywhere else and the large family of The Gateway is not going to trade anywhere but in Seward. Recipro cation—that’s it—and we will join in and help one another, thus helping our community, the land where we live. Isn’t this right? j An eastern paper says they put glue in the ice cream in Wisconsin. That is one way to make the trade stick. You will observe that LaFollette “held up” the newj war bond bill: he did not “uphold” it. I ■ — —■ ■■ ■ ■■■ ■ Russia is now a Republic with a President, patriots,; I. W. W.’s, German propagandists and everything. Hur rah for the grand old Bear. It is remarkable what a number of little things, all added together, will do. After reading the Alaska En gineering Commission doings on the Seward division in yesterday’s Gateway, it proves that one mile completed here and there makes a long link in the ultimate connec tion and extension.
