A newspapw, if it has any,
brains, e< nseience and uinsele h ick j
of it, must continually decide be-:
tween doing its duty and injurirg
its pocket. In any position hut
that of an editor, the pulic is ab’e
to separate the individual home
from that of the collective citizen.
But if an editor does not please
them its at his pockets they aim.
Tims it is the n< wspapers learn who
their friends are. The man wlioj
reads the newspaper and admires it
all tin* year around, yet gives hi*
business support to some other con
cern, is not a friend to the newspa
per. Admiration alone will not
run a newspaper. There are too
many men who expect an editor to
slave in defense of their pet notions
and hobbies, advocate their views
against the strongest opposition and
coolly withhold the business sup
port hy which alone a country
newspaper ean live.
Talk about a uew.qv per having a
public duty to perform, and an
editor having to work for his prin
ciples is cheap, when others stand
back and extend a lukewarm neu
trality. The. result, is the "editor
may starve while laboring for his
principles and the cause of right
