What Would You Do?
If yon were running a new
jiajier would yon always 'give
the people lie news?''
would you let othercon~idera
tiniis constrain you to refrain
from giving publicity to mat
ters which would give pain to
innocent parlies, 11 ere are a
few illustration-: A young
man has been indi.-^-reet in
his company, is led to drink
ing and quarreling and is ar
rested. A friend comes to the
editor and asks him not to
mention the affair in the .pa
per, because it will be seen
lie re by Iiis mother, a good
woman, and grief cause her.
Hut if kept out of the paper
she probr.bly will never hear
of it. What would you do if
you were the editor? Would
you deem it necessary to give
the public, this item of news,
or would you put the mother
and young man first, and for
get it? A man living in another
community at some distance
lias committed a shocking
crime. Relatives come to the
editor and ask that no public
ity be given to it in their
community, because of lie
shame they think it. would en
tail upon the family name.
They are eminently respect
able themselves and worthy
of consideration in making
such a request.. What would
you do if editor? Would you
deem it necessary to exploit
this crime and tell of the rela
tionship of the perpetrator to
prominent people of your city
Or would you consider their
feelings and wishes, and cut
it out? A young woman yet
in her teens goes wrong in her
relations with a young man
with whom she is keeping
company. 11 er parents learn
the facts and take steps to
bring about, legal reparation,
by marriage. The editor is
asked, for her sake and that
of the young people, to ignore
the matter, though aware of
all the facts. What would you
do if editor? Would you tell
the story in the paper to
the couple and their relatives,
or would you cover it up? A
man, well known in this city,
gets into trouble elsewhere.
The story reaches the city
through con net!
ng channels of
newspaperdom. There are
those whose connection to
him is such that local publicity
of his disgrace would cause
shame which they are not en
titled to bear, and they and
their friends ask the editor
not to publish the story.
What would you do, if editor?
Would you give the public
the news, or would you have
regard for those who would be
uujustly shamed by giving it
general publicity? These are
cases which have come to
the editor of the Telegram for
decision within the last few
months. And though the pa
per prides itself upon "giving
the news" it must be confess

There was a Yankee correspondent
