RAVENSTEIN FIRE AND LIFE INSURANCE REAL ESTATE AGENT CONTRACTING AND BUILDING Office at Home. Phone No. 28 Hayti, Missouri There is no desire on our part to enter into any controversy with the Caruthersville Argus, nor with any other paper of that class, but since it Is perfectly clear that the Argus is now and has been anxious to laud itself at the expense not only of the Hayti Herald but at the expense of everything in sight, we will state that if necessary we are perfectly willing to measure lances with that paper, if it becomes necessary for us to do so, in order to quench its egoism. So far, the Argus has been silenced and went down in inglorious defeat bv every paper with which it has had a controversy. TheTwice-a-Veek"Democrat silenced the Argus, and the Portageville Critic forced the Argus to admit that its insinuations, construed to effect our judges, were base and groundless. It seems that the Argus should become mindful of its weakness, and keep the names of others out of its mouth. There are two sides to overy question, Argus. It is all right with the Hayti Herald and with every intelligent person, for the Argus to believe us it wants to believe and preach as it wants to preach, but it must learn, sooner or later, th.it others have the same right, and it is best to let other newspapers and individuals exercise their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. These remarks are called out at this particular time by the silly gush in column 2, which the Argus reproduced from that weakling, tho Morohouso Hustler, which shows the beligerency of the Argus toward tho Hearld. In column 1 will bo found tho policies of tho Hayti Herald from .ts first issuo to the present, and we leave the case with the people. Hayti Herald, Odt. 30, 1908. This was the first issuo of the Hayti Herald. When a man starts a business, a store, a hotel, a restaurant, or be comes a professional man, mechan ic or public olllcial, he must nco cessarily start out to do business with all the people, and not with any particular class. So in giv ing the Hayti Herald life wo are actuated purely by business mo tives. We have no other depen dence for a living and tho support of our family, and the dollar of tho just and the unjust will buy just the same amount of bread and meat and littlo dresses. But these dol lars must come to us in a business way, for business purposes, when that business is recognized and protected and made possible by the laws of the land. We will neither justey, condone or paliate for evil doing, but wo shall leave it to tho courts and the ollicers of the law to enforce and carry the law into ef fect, and we shall expect to be re lieved of further duty than jury service. Hayti Herald, June 10, 1909. That Fred Morgan ad. See the wilful, malicious and premeditated lie oftlio Morehouse Hustler, sought to bo porpetuuted by tho Caruthers ville Argus. It is not our desire to run whis key and beer advertisements in a local option town, but there is about $1,. 'WO tied up in this print ing establishment, and it must be made to pay its way. Those peo ple who complain on this class of advertising can very easily over come this objectionable feature by giving us sulllcient patronage to live without this class of advertis ing. If you cannot do this, keep your peace. This paper is going to make a living. Wo have no money to sacrifice. It must pay its way; and while we respect tho feel ing of overy one, we also respect tho feeling of self and family, and when wo can earn money in a law ful way, from a lawful business, nermitted and protected under tho laws of our country, we feel that wo have dono well. This is our position, exactly as stated in the first issue of the paper. Hayti Herald, Nov. 25, 1909. The Morehouso Hustler is one of those ono-idead papers. Now it is perfectly satisfactory to us for tho Hustler to have its own opinion, and it would not be worth z contin ental if it did not have, but one thing certain about it, tho Hustler will have to accord others the same rights it asks for its self. The world would hardly stand if everybody were of the same opinion, had tho same mind and feeling and thought and acted alike. In that state, wo would retrograde and decline more tiian to any dark ago of the past. There have been times in the world's history when people were persecuted and oven burned at tho stake be cause they did not believo or do a certain way. This sumo spirit is in tho world today. Hut through all ages there have lived a sulllcient number of broad, liberal-minded people to preserve tho affairs of men in tact, to forget oppression, tyramny, wars und bloodshed an to strive on for advancement and have preserved an equilibrium of things that foster and piotect free thought and free speech and to re turd solllshneBs, jealously, envy, und spite. Of course wo have this class with us and they will continue with us us long as time. Wo cun not remedy this defect with which nuturo has endowed them, but wo must tolerate them and iet them continue in their nurrow confines. This is not all for tho Hustler, how over. Tho Wakarusa Degree Team, I. O. R. M. will visit Mahngotayseo Tribe at Concord next Saturday night, to put ou the floor work. Hayti Herald, Nov. 11, 1909. Some one has censured the Her ald for accepting saloon advertis ing, etc. Now, suppose you had a store, and a saloon man should como into your store to buy a bill of goods. You would sell to him, to bo sure. It is just the same with a newspaper. Our space is our stock in trade; it is for sale; it makes our living, feeds our family and keeps the paper going. We're not working for glory, not by a long shot, but for an honorable living. The Pemiscot Argus and Morehouse Hustler Boomerang. An Article Copied from the Morehouse Hustler in last Week's Argus. But there is a difference, just the same, and you acknoledge it your self sometime ago. I have not yet seen an apology from you for any ad thatamerchantcarries with you, but when your ad for Fred Morgan's saloon at Caruthersville appeared tho first time you did apologize for it by aiking your readers not to be huffy about it as the government had made his a legtimato business. There is a vast difference between a merchant selling a saloon keeper a bill of goods and a newspaper selling the same man advertising space. Public opinion makes the difference, and public opinionmakes everything. A newspaper man must bo more careful about his business than most people. A merchant can sell a man a gun and that gun kill another man in a few hours, and nobody thinks any thing about it. But in this case, only two people knew anything about the purchase and tho merchant did not. know the purpose for which the gun was pur chased. But a newspaper man talks to several hundred people every week, and when he advertises a business that is more harmfull and destructive than selling a gun, tho public will hold him responsible. It s a hard matter for a newspap er to walk tho fence, even if it wishes. Tho best way is to take one sico or tho other and expect no favors from the opposition. You won't make quite as much money out of it, but you will have the satisfaction of poing guided solely by your own conscience, und thut alone is worth considerable. We disagree with the man who takes tho saloon side, but wo do not disrespect him, when we know lie is voicing his own sentiments. But wo do have a supreme contempt for tho man who plays tho middle; afraid to flop on elthor side. If a newspaper man is morally res ponslablo for tho reading matter that enters his paper, (and he is) then ho should also bo morally re sponsiablo for tho advertisolng lie curries (and lie is.) This puts it up to tho newspaper man pretty straight, but it is us it should be. Perhaps if tho Hayti Herald made no further comment on tho above, at this time, it might have to do so later, so wo will repeat and empha size that the Herald Is not for any set or clan, but for all tho people, und so long as the saloon buslnes 1b conducted according to tho laws of tho land they have a right under the law and wo havo to transact le gitimate business, just the sumo as the preachers, churches, Sunday schools, religious, charitable and public Institutions havo a right and do accept contributions from tho saloon keeper, only moro so, because wo earn our money. Our school teachers spent Thanks giving at their respective homes, and havo returned to their work, some of thorn looking brighter than before.
