Burlington News, The (Newspaper) - December 6, 1911, Burlington, North Carolina VOL 23 BURLINGTON, :_____j______ THE PASTORS AND THE BURL1NG- TON NEWS. FARMERS TWO FAREWELL SERMONS, The Purlington Market has had .Last Sunday the Rev. J., A'. Upon the accession of a new editor the'-the' misfortune to loose onfe of the I pastor of the.M. E. Churcivprctiohe'U his pastors of'the city. say several f Wareliouses by fire, but we want to I farewell a.crowded house. Mr. things 'concerning Hie Burlington say right here, that The.Brick Ware'r I.Horniiday has been here 6nly.twoty.ear3, AROLINA, DECEMBER 1911, MEETING QF COUNTY COMMIS toy- many friends of Cltiilfot Pounds. 40 122 Pounds. US 142 142 130 ''JO 130 010 Pounds. .02 134 05 94 36 40 1U6 190 'the new and the old, and its telation to the Jife.of-the community. ...1. .We. congratulate the new editor iipo'n the splendid opporl-inily now before to shape the plastic life of our entire city and.county. His ministry is to be a wider "one, easily 'accomplish more, than that of any in the com- 1. munity.. It is his privilege to preach social .and; civic' righteousness every .week ,to thoiSauds-bf.people. He may so generous- ly praise virtue-iiud right; and so stinging-; ly condemn vice and': wrong, that entire community will covet, his notice of his riotice-pf the other. Great is his opportunity for helping "-make Burlington in every sense a clean Wisely- c.dly, not so' much by. party pqlilics, as i: SO by" personified righteousness.' 'To thii cud we trust, our new'editor will become .a student of municipal government 468 and of civic iinpiovement, in order that "Jiia public utleiances may come to have ig the public mind the weight of definite tnd accuiale knowledge. 2. Tp the public we wish to ir.ention the debt due to a good editor. No othei citizen has so -great an opportunity for '.enabling or degrading the public seuii- ment. of the community, or for promoting or retarding the-progress of a town, as has the editor of its most widely read paper. A wide' awake, high-toned editor therefore should be regarded ns one of .the1 leading benefactors of a communi- ty-; and in so far as he puts into, bis-paper these characteristics-it should have the sympathy' not only, but the enthusiastic support, of every true, and public-spirited citizen. Every citizen should feel a per- sonal obligation to help make' it go. By subscription, by liberal advertising in its cohfiims and. by ger.eial .boosting, the citizenship insure a ..large Jinan-Hal, sucncis; and as 'paper and editor rat-. So t.he fronA all the community 'l.'n in of. 'sorry'sort Pf ciiizeu' that will not feel proud of the success of a paper that is one of' the chief promoters of the success and progress of the town. 3. To both our papers we have a word in common. All that we have said, in- deed, was said -other excellent paper in mind, only we wished to show special recognition to our new editor. Both papers are public servants and pro- moters of the public good. It is unworthy of either in local issues to stand merely as champion of paity politics, and to fling mud at the other, or at the party whose issues it espouses. For either to be so biassed as not to give generous credit for whatever of good appears in paper or party or administration is to put itself outside the pale cf respectable journalism. Editorial abuse and mud throwing will not long be tolerated m the twentieth century by the enlightened public sentiment of any community. Any paper so offending against, good taste and common morals should be discoun- tcrrianced and blackballed and forced t. surrender its public trust. This gently reminds onr editors that public senti- ,raent-demands that, if they cannpl keep sweet, they will at least be courteous. 4. Vo the retiring editor of The Bur- lington News we wish to pay our compli- ments. If he lias said some things and done Eome things we -could not all approve, he has also said and done countless things for which we give him unstinted praise. In the main he has been on the side of morals and reform and progress. We generously acknowledge the large debt which om community o.wcs him, and reluctantly irive him our hand in parting. e _ ii. -i r.t house, is still here for businness. Our buyers are all atill here and we are- glfjd to say want tobacco and the prices will'be just as good.' Don't let any one decieve you but bring your tobacco on to the Brick Warehouse.
