There is not a country on I tie face of tor earth, thai the newspaper ha gained fvh a high position as in our own country. It is one of our na tional prides, the freedom of the press. "Whatever other power the people have given their law-makers, they have refused to interfere with the newspaper except to prevent gross libel, and in this, the Courts adjudicate. There is no law that rould be enacted, but what would do as much evil as good; which would abridge true freedom a well as re press license. The' regulation of the jpress is in the hands of the people, -where it rightly belongs, for it is the voice of the people and they can de termine whether it be true or falne. 'It remains for the patrons to say what 'the code of ethics shall be. They are hc ones that give support and make its existence possible; and it also lies with them to say whether this exist ence shall be for good or evil. Poli--cies and motives are oft-times per mitted to thrive in the conduct of newspapers that would not be toler ated in any other institution existing "by popular favor. Men who would cat from their acquaintance one whom they detected in an outright falsehood, will continue to contri bute monty to the support of which they know well are given to the pub lication of the most shameful lies. Men who would strike to the earth any one who should carry a suspicion of shame to the purity of their house holds, will welcome, day after day, sheets which are reeking with pollut ing influences. Men who are quick to discern the rogue who would un dermine their success and risk their fortunes under the guise of friend ship, will still contribute to the sup port of papers which they plainly see are pmpagating the deadliest fallacies in the garb philanthropy, or reaching, for the rewards of demagogueism un ler cover of claims for public benefit. Men who would denounce such wrongs if attempted in any other form, will quietly gulp down these an gar-coated pills of perfidy and pe--dition administered by the public press. And while prints, which are thus encouraged by patronage, can hold the support of the truth-lovers and at the same time serve for hire the interests of those who thrive upon the success of sinister designs, it is little wonder that we see such per versions of the freedom of the press as now exist. It is simply by the public suffemncy that such things are possible. If is simply because the managers of such low-toned and truck, ling sheets can bag the dollars of the well-disposed but thoughtless people, and at She same time drive bargains to sell the influence which this patron age be.ltwt to those who will pay highest for it, that we see. the won terful and disgraceful exhibitions of journalistic gymastics. This V not a pleasant theme, but it is one of the utmost importance. What surety of right and safety is there when the voice of the people' jis spoken by the press, permitted to sink to the approval of false ideas of public policy? Who can tell to what end of wrong the tendency may jro which takes its rise in the subjec tion of principle to the claims of pri vate interest. What encouragement is there to individual uprightness, truth "and nobility of purpose when Ihe public press makes yesterday's outlaw the hero of to-day What surety of the permanence of a good name by a life of disinterested good ness, when those who were yesterday pronounced dangerous to the public safety are to-day proclaimed the peo. pie's saviors? Blinded by partisan ship and led by greed for gain, jour nals which public patronage should make zealous custodians of the gen eral good are transformed into cring ing, truckling servitors of personal simbition and propragators of profit, .altle falsehood. Is there no remedy ? Yes, there is a sovereign remedy so long as the majority of the people are, as they are to-day, truth, lovers, patriotic and resolute. Xo tire will burn without fuel, and no service of the false will t-uccced unless it have' the support which the friends of truth afford. If .any journal gives unmistakable signs of selling truth for selti.-li gains, -cut it off. Let it lose the support of the upright, and it will fall. If a jour nal aims to thrive by furnishing a fund of incidents and ideas which .appeal to the baser passions, and fill Ihe mind with low and groveling thoughts, banish it from pure homes jnto outer darkness which its tastes approve. Titer may be other ap. proof lies to the journalastic heart, but the one which, is most available to the public is through the cash box. Withdraw support, and the journal which lends its eminence to the ser vice of evil, mill either purge itself ft jts evil or go down -with it. the people determine' that no journal ( shall live unless its t-thic he isili ioncd and. true.
