HANDLING THE NEWS.
“And I am not, violating any
confidence when J say that I have
in my safe in New York at this
moment copies ol' three speech
es which Theodore Roosevelt will
deliver in South America," said
Melville E. Stone, general man
ager of the Associaed Press, a
few days ago in an address be
fore the Indiana members of the
Associated Press. This remark j
gives an idea of one of the ways j
in which the news of the world
is covered. When Col. Roosevelt
actually delivers tile speeches in
South America, the managei.it
of the Associated Press in this
country will he unfilled and over
the wires will go a release mes
sage lo newspapers carrying the
A. P. dispatches. Hefore the
speeches the Associated Press
will probably send copies by mail
to each of Ihe A. P. newspapers.
Those copies will he marked:
“Confidential. To he held until
released." The Associated Press
enjoys the confidence of ollieials |
and the general public, and is j
for that reason able to furnish
such a complete news service.
A notable example of Ihe con-j
flilence imposed in tile Associated i
Press is file fact that during Ihe !
Spanislt-Ameriean war Admiral |
Sampson telegraphed to Mr. i
Stone the plan he proposed to
follow with his fleet in attack-!
ing the Spanish navy. If was big j
news, hut it was not intended for i
publication. To have published i
it would have been to inform the j
Spanish naval authorities of our j
plan of campaign. Hut the in- j
formation enabled file general!
manager of the Associated Press |
to prepare for handling the news i
of the battle. !
It. is not uncommon for t lie
President of the t'niled States lo 1
call in representatives of the As- ]
socialed Press and inform them
of what is to lie undertaken. They !
have a clean record for keeping !
confidences, and officials d ■ not '
hesitate to impart informal ion !
that will aid in keeping Ihe conn- j
try correctly advised.
I lie Associated Press is nun- ;
partisan. II is mi the same eon- |
tiilenUal relations with I Ik* Deni- j
oeralir national adminislration
as it was with the Republican. II
serves Republican. Democratic,
other parly and independent
newspapers alike. II gives facts,
not opinions. It oflen carries the
opinions of olliers, as, for exam
ple, in I he speeches of public
men, but I hey are the opinions
of the men piloted. Because of
its uon-parl isan and careful pre
sentation of the I'aels, if has be
come the greatest news agency
in the world.—Ex.
THE WOOD BISON
The reporl of the murder by
Eskimos of Explorers If. \Y. Rad
ford and George Street transmit
ted by Gomjmissioner Peary of
Regina. Canada, for an investiga
tion of the Hudson Bay district,
records a serious loss to zoolog
ical science. The Smithsonian
Institution received last year
from Mr. Radfoid, who left New
York City for the north in Jan
uary, l!)09, the first definite evi
dence of a species of bison, un
known to lhe western prairies,
inhabiting northwest Canada in
the region of the Great Slave
Lake. The skeleton and skull of
the wood bison now in the Na
tional Museum at Washington
are the only specimens of the
kind in the world. Mr. Radford
killed his wood bison in a herd
of 350, found in a rugged and
precipitous mountain region far
from any prairie, and in a part
of the continent geologically (Od
er I hail the prairie regions.
The prairie buffalo is almost
extinct. But it is probable that,
by the efforts of public-spirited
men like Dr. W. T. Hornaday, the
few descendants of tin* vast herds
of bison that once overran the
prairjes of the Great West.
Prior to Mr. Radford’s verifica
tion of reports concerning the
bison of the Great Slave Lake,
Dr. Hornada.v was of the opinion
that they were a northernmost
herd of the familiar type of the
plains. It is now the belief of
all American naturalists that the
wood bison is a distinct species,
perhaps the ancestor of I he prai
rie buffalo. The two varieties may
yet have free range in the greaf
national parka and may he per
mitted lo multiply under the pro
tective care of the civilization
that all but destroyed them. The
wood bison is more massive,
broader and bigger in ever way
than the bison of the Great West;
a generation hence may witness
their increase in great numbers
as a proper substitute for the
nearly exterminated species. Hut,
it, is of importance that the rec
ords gathered by Mr. Radford and
his companions should lie1 recov
ered, and made the basis of fur
ther attempts lo win back this
lately discovered a species to its
place of vantage among Ameri
can fauna.— Kx.
I remarked to Dr. Skate: "I’m
increasing in my weight, and it's
giving me the blues, for I cannot
tie my shoes, so I want a pint of
pills, or a syrup made of squills,
or some other kind of dope; you !
can pull me down, I hope?” All
tin1 time at heart I know that I
really ought lo go to the wood
pile with an ax. and get down to
old brass lacks. Oh, I ought to
do my chores and get busy out
of doors, healing carpels good
and hard, cleaning up the liller
ed yard, with a mind and heart
at peace, thus disposing of my
grease. But, instead, I trot a
block, and consult the four-eyed
doc, and he shakes his head and '
sighs, and he looks confounded
wise, and gives me pellets labeled
“Nux,” and assesses ]me three
bucks. And some forty million
jays are as foolish, all their days.
