of the Telegrams we Venture to sug gest the propriety of omitting bom our items the reporting of Sunday base ball games and all similar violations of law and good Weston The Cone correspondent heartily endorses the idea of Brother of in regard to publishing the transactions of ball games on or any other degrading sport which hap pens on Cone To my good friends above I would say that once there was a newspaper man who decided that he would only pnnt in his paper that which would meet with general In other words he went around among hit friends and asked them to select the departments and articles tbat were so they could be stricken out of tbe He made several He found out that the world was made np of people of many He learned tbat while Jones would not object to the report of a that Smith would so he cut out tbe horso Smith thought that football was a brutal and tbe reports of a foot ball game should be and the editor eliminated An other thought the personal column was a light and flimsy and could very readily be filled with better The editor cut ont the Another mai objected to the editorial He thought the editor didnt know enough to write editorials that were They were not heavy They wen not aeep and and all tbat sort of The editor Mae penciled his editorial Another subscriber criticised the They were An other didnt want to read the They were Another thought it encouraged reck lessness by reporting accounts of bal loon The balloon business was And so it There was not a single feature of the paper bat what somebody offered an objec tion Consequently when the paper went to it came ont an absolute Every feature had been because there were people who bad objections to all of I am frank to say that it is some times very difficult to decide what comes properly in the field of legiti mate and what lies If I followed the suggestions of my cor whose inclinations and wishes I know to be of tbe very I should not publish tbe ac count of any unlawful I have not commended Sunday base ball I have not approved and I do not ap prove it In community like Ad rian I feel whether I am a chnrch man or there should be some reasonable and right recogni tion of the spirit of the I feel that Sunday baas ball is not necessary to the recreation of the peo ple as yet At the same time if 1 omit publishing tbe things that hap which my correspondents do not and then omit the things which other people do not then is quite a strong probability that The Telegram would very soon become a I believe it was the elder Ben the publisher of the New York when being remonstrat ed with at one time in regard to pub lishing certain declared tbat his paper was not too good to print anything the good Lord allowed to I do not know an I can go quite so far as And yet people subscribe for newspapers in order to know what If people vio late the and The Telegram fails to tell what is going then there would be a howl that the paper is be ing If playing base ball on Sunday is an unlawful instead of condemning The or ask ing that nothing be said abont it would seem to me that The Telegram should be expected to give a report of the that the whose duty it is to enforce the might know what is being If my friends have any good reasons to present why The Telegram sbonld pursue a course different from that now being I shall be willing to give them to the I have been in the newspaper business so tbat I know it is impossible to please I know also that men get into a editors I feel that subscribers take a paper for the purpose of finding ont as near ly as possible what is being and whether that be a ball or a or a or a or an or what there is practically only one course to and that is simply make a record of the things that Having none it seems to me tbat the duty of the publisher to the public has bean properly I may be bnt I am not able to see the situation in any other with the informa tion and experience which I bave un At the same time if The Telegram is drifting into improper it is very willing to be set if any good reasons can be pre sented By that I mean ar guments that cannot be negatived by the other side of the A Jolly Party Passed
